You can read all about the second content patch on the official website, or below.

Planet Offer

Bus System

Traffic is becoming an issue in your city but you do not wish to destroy lovingly crafted neighborhoods to build expressways right in the middle of your residential areas? It’s time to offer your citizens an alternative to cars!

Available from 50.000 inhabitants – or earlier if you use Expert mode and are not too worried about costs – bus lines will prove a handy way for your citizens to get to their working place. For more information on how the bus system work, check our Bus introduction article.

Mega-Ferris Wheel

A new blueprint will allow you to build this fully animated Ferris wheel megastructure to better satisfy the leisure needs of your citizens. It will be particularly appreciated by your Unqualified and Qualified Workers.

New York Map

The Statue of Liberty, some of the most renowned skyscrapers and a complete road layout are already placed on this new realistic map to let you reproduce the famous "city that never sleeps" of the United States of America, or your very own vision of it!

Solo and Planet

City Hall and Central Library of The Hague

The “Ice Palace”, as it is sometimes called, was one of the winning buildings of the “Point, Shoot, Win” contest we organized last year when the game was still under development. It is now being added to the game as a leisure building, and its library and multimedia center will prove a good way to improve your citizens’ education.

Solo game

Has Don Madalff been blessed with the spirit of Christmas all of a sudden? Or is it just another clever scheme from Omnicorp’s boss to make more benefits? The true motives of Madalff will probably not matter much to solo mayors as this drop in prices can only be good news for their cities.
