Known Issues Edit

NewCities v0.0.50.5 ᴀʟᴘʜᴀ Known Issues Edit

  • Poor compatibility with Linux. If you play on Linux and experience trouble, please contact Lone Pine. Solutions include installing libopengl0, upgrading your OS, and running New Cities from the command line (not through Steam).

  • Shadows can produce artifacts across the terrain when viewing at certain angles

  • Occasional Crashes when loading a new game or switching modes

  • Upgrading roads or building blueprints can sometimes result in overlapping road segments

  • Roads can float on uneven terrain (fixed in v0.0.50.9)

  • Vehicles can occasionally become frozen on loading a city 

  • Vehicle interpolation can occasionally result in teleportation, fast movement, or cars appearing to leave the roadway.

  • Vehicles may choose suboptimal routes to reach their destination

  • Vehicle speed can be inconsistent, even on two different road segments with the same speed limit

  • LOD changes can result in geometry popping in and out

  • Some zone nodes can force a zone on both sides of the road.

  • When closing the planner tool, sometimes the information panel opens

  • Stoplight visuals broken

  • Sounds can “stack” when the game is paused, producing an unpleasantly loud sound when unpausing.

NewCities v0.0.50.5 ᴀʟᴘʜᴀ Perceived Issues That Aren’t Really Issues Edit

  • Certain zone types have requirements for development, including certain density levels or other metrics

  • Issue Icons can take time to resolve as people or freight move around the city in real time

  • Building a university is essentially required to get offices (and beat the game). This is a game design issue.
