A new update has graced the path of Maxis' sim-city building theme park SimCity, offering up a number of changes including a new tool that will "create bridges, overpasses, and tunnels when you draw your roads."

According to the official forum post, when "building your road, pressing the comma key or period key will lower or raise the road accordingly creating overpasses, bridges and tunnels." Sadly however pre-existing roads can not be raised or lowered with this new tool, so you may have to start afresh to see the tools usage.

Other changes to the game include improvements for Traffic behavior to make it smarter, a tree tool to place trees around your city, sports parks are now accepting Sims 24 hours a day and a number of other usual bug fixes.

The new update is currently undergoing some testing and should be available shortly for players.

Wow, this 'tool' should have been included from day 0. How on Earth a competent designer decided that such a 'tool' wasn't needed..

I'm still waiting for a patch that makes the game challenging and opens up city sizes. I haven't played this once 2 weeks after buying it, such a rip-off. :(

This road overpass/bridge building feature is one of two things I personally require before I can play the game again, the other is bigger city sizes, then the game would be playable again and back to being the addictive game it once was.

that was my first pc too, man it struggled to run diablo

then we got a guy out who i am sure charged a f***load of cash to come and install another 16mb - diablo ran like a dream then

not sure if it was 8mb -> 16mb or 16 -> 32mb

but a cool story either way bros

Are we talking about first PCs we bought and built ourselves or are family PCs bought when we were kids included? Because my first ever PC was a 386 33mhz, 4mb of RAM (heaps for back then) and a 50mb HD. Doom 2 ran very slowly.

I remember having a 486dx66 at some point, playing Commander Keen on that baby, along with a bunch of other random stuff.

I also remember getting my first Sound Blaster card, I lost my s*** with Ultima 7 intro with real speaking!

Also the old days of boot disks, XMS. Getting Doom to run with sound was fun.
