Why the lack of freedom

EA aren't listening of course, but I feel ya Mikey. The fact that you can only place them (and pavement and rivers) on grids as wide as themselves constrains everything and can be very irritating.

    I think * Cheney and Halliburton bought EA.

    Check for wires and hidden microphones.

    Be careful what you wish for. The cost of freedom can be very high, especially when we're talking about EA!

    I think they should add curves to the roads so we can have some variety to the square grid pattern. Wishful thinking I know. :?

    It really does limit your design options. That and parking, et al, only being able to be placed in two directions.

    The reason you can't place roads, pavement, and water where you would like has to do with the grid mechanics. Unlike the rest of the map "decoration", these items must "link". If you placed one of these items in in-congruent spot, they would not link, making the visual appear flawed.

    Would be good to add road and river curves. Also hills!
    Cant really understand the red walls. No one really uses them :mrgreen:

    I use mine to bring down property values. Also a good marker for which gang runs which house farm ghetto.

    It's not that difficult to work out a better grid system, it's tile based anyway so sprite placement isn't even an issue

    I wish they would let us use sidewalks by themselves without streets.
    Seems like that should be easy enough to let us build 1x1 sidewalk squares.
