Since a less than desirable launch, SimCity is clearly dedicated to the games development. Today they shipped Update 7 which addresses a number of issues with the game. One of the biggest changes is a new feature that allows you to create multi-level roads. These allow bridges, overpasses and tunnels making your city’s transport network closer reflect those we find in the real world.

Here’s a full list of what’s changed in update 7,

  • New Feature: Tool to create bridges, overpasses, and tunnels when you draw your roads.
    – While building your road, pressing the N key or M key will lower or raise the road accordingly creating overpasses, bridges and tunnels. Note: Existing road layouts cannot be raised or lowered
  • New: Improvements for traffic behaviour to make it smarter. This should reduce the number of lines formed by all available vehicles converging on a single spot. This affects all vehicles including Police, Fire Trucks, Moving Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Recycling Trucks, Resource Trucks, Buses, Ambulances, and Civilian vehicles.
  • New: Tree tools – Place individual trees along your city roads. This tool is located at the end of the Nature Parks menu.
  • New: Vehicles now accelerate and decelerate faster, allowing them to leave buildings and cross intersections more efficiently.
  • Parks: Sports parks are now accepting Sims 24 hours a day.
  • Airship: The number of Airship passenger trips should now be correct over multiple days.
  • Freight: Freight trucks now only leave factories if they have a valid delivery destination.
  • Fix for freight trucks leaving the city instead of going back to the factories in some situations.
  • Terrain: Improves some instances where terrain covers sections of roads under certain scenarios while the camera is zoomed out.
