Justin Gillis: Its on my worst mac realeases of 2013, it wont even start after i bought
it, and worst of all the origins great game garenty doesnt aplly for it so
now i got a game thats useless. All i wonder is how the hell do they manage
to reslease this without fixing the most horrible bugs?
Jp Lachowski: Am I the only one who experience super laggy/slow movements on
TheBaggadonuts: why?! WHY do you edit your videos to twitch at the end of every sentence.
Rashad: This was another horrible port. I have a 2013 retina Macbook Pro, and it
still is laggy. It runs smoother on lower spec'ed Windows PCs -_-
Robert Waller: I have the PC copy of the game.. On the makers website it says that users
with PC copy will get Mac copy free. I don;t know where or how to get the
Normous Cranium: give me download link
DtMi - Deletethemetainf: I had the same performance issues, I certainly hope they've fixed this by
Gabriel Cros: Hello, thanks for your video. I would like an advice. I have a Macbook pro
13" 2011 (summer) with 4GB RAM, 2,3 GHz Inter Core i5 and Intel HD Graphics
3000 384 Mo. I was considering that fact to buy Simcity on my mac because I
like the game but I am afraid it would be slow. Do you think that my mac
can support it ?
Frantic X Fate: i have 2011 i5 2.4 intel chip 4gb memory and had with intel 3000hd will it
Nicholas Atchison: would it work with a 2013 macbook pro with retina display and im running on
mavericks the newest updates for it?
Jeff S: sorry if you've already answered this, if you turn down the
textures/lighting/animation detail, will the fps and performance increase?
xWhichGameTodayx: do you think this will be fixed in the future at all? Like will they make
it run like it does on windows. Sry if this is a dumb question...im a noob
xWhichGameTodayx: thanks so much for your help
Keven Gil: Mine runs decently on a late 2011 Imac 27"
SimNationTV: My pleasure! It is to be expected some minor performance improvements, as
they have more time to get around things, but overall, it will stay like
this. If you are really looking for performance, even if it sounds ironic
(:P) you should download Bootcamp, get a Windows 7 copy, and install it on
your Mac, to play SimCity for PC.
xWhichGameTodayx: thanks man there is a few games that r pc only also so i may do that. You
have knowledge you should start reviewing lots of games and how they run :P
TheBraveNewBooks: Ive been debating if I want to buy this. but the Mac version is already 3
months late and its reported to still have errors and flaws. I think I'll
save my money.
Joseph Green: does anyone else have the problem running on a pro where you get choppy
shader errors ?
MinecraftScience: Are you able to install a faster NvIDIA driver?
Jacopo Bertini: I can precisely can tell that mac version is unplayable. I played the
windows version on a 32 bit OS win8 bootcamped. i could reach easily 300k
citizens with a lot of stuff and medium settings without any lagging
problem, over 300k things went a bit slowly... in the mac version on the
same late 2011 imac i5 512 mb card i can't play because just at the
beginning, with minimum settigs, this game lags and freeze and lags . they
just don't care of the result of what they sell. i'm disappointed
Rickard Roxvall: Thank you for this review matey boy! Well appreciated. :)
Phazon8058MS: If you live in Canada, then the Origin store works weird in Canada because
EA hates you if you're not American. I had to purchase a physical copy of
the game from Amazon yesterday. It arrived to just an hour ago and I'm
updating the game at the moment. I play on Windows though...
zDerp: Hi! Good review.But...simcity working for my mac mini?
Pablo Neirotti: Yes, just like you can now on Mountain Lion or previous OS X versions.
However, SimCity's resolution is set independently from screen resolution
(and I mean while on full screen), so you won't have to tweak around it.
djsolstice: I bought simcity for PC when it came out, and now I just downloaded it for
mac. I run a 2012 Macbook Pro (2.4Ghz i5, HD 4000, 4GB ram) and on the
lowest setting all round it runs soooo slow. It's basically unplayable. I
play for maybe 10mins then I just give up. It really needs work. i hope
they can fix it. But at the moment it's dismal, avoid it for now.
troll3face1999: i make avideo its nice on mac
ABritishGamer1: I have a late 2012 Lowest model 21inch imac and it runs SimCity in mostly
ultra settings (some high) without lag. Do you have an older model?
ABritishGamer1: Yeah you are probably running it on lower resolution like 1600 x 900 so its
a lot less laggy
SimNationTV: Glad to hear!
SimNationTV: Yea, that's a 2011 MacBook Pro. With Lighting on low, then others settings
in Low / Medium, you should be able to run in native resolution on your Mac.
zDerp: It's the 2013 model, basic specs.
xWhichGameTodayx: so if i put it on lowest settings will it run fine like no lag? (i have a
macbook pro 4gb intel hd 3000) thanks for your help
SimNationTV: Yes, you will have to play it in Low lighting settings of you want to get
FPS up to playable level (then of course, it will look nasty). I was quite
disappointed myself too. I decided to keep it as an alternative for when
I'm doing other things.
Alex Munson: So SimCity 5 therefore will not function correctly if the mac version is
SimNationTV: Pretty sure the requirement is 10.7.5 - I don't know if you can run it with
intel HD graphics though. I struggle with GeForce GTX 660M on the Mac :P
Jeric Addo: Please join my region if you are good at creating highly populated high
wealth cities ADD ME ON ORIGIN :Jeric94
Rynzer: i have a mid 2010 macbook pro and cant put any settings onto medium as it
will lag loads :(
Pu Repinoii: can u play it offline?
SimNationTV: When you go to Medium or higher Lighting settings, Depth Blur and Motion
Blur will be activated. These operations are one of the most expensive
things for a graphic card to do. You could probably run it in High just
fine if they enabled you to remove them *entirely*. It may help switching
Tilt-Shift setting down to Low. But it will still lag.
Jeric Addo: add me on origin for simcity5 : jeric94
SimNationTV: SimCity still requires internet connection to play.
Jeric Addo: i have simcity on my brand new macbook running at max settings ....and yes
it runs smooth add me on origin I'm new to sim city check my crap out:
ABritishGamer1: ah that's why then I run it at lower resolution. Thought that was weird
Odrama: Will Maverick allow me to change the resolution of two monitors
SimNationTV: Makes sense! And thank you, sir. You are too kind!
Mike Mikovsky: Thanks for the review...I needed confirmation that I wasn't alone with my
performance issues. (now, to find that Windows 7 installation DVD....)
SimNationTV: Thank you! Tell me which year your Mac Mini is, and I'll look up the specs.
It might be able to run it.
DOGSinTHEhouse BEAST: If you have intel hd 3000 graphics. Do you have to have OS X 10.8.4? And
when I try to buy the game it says transaction failed :(
L1CHable: Plz, can you tell me, on a site, i read that is you have 10.7.5 and you
have intel hd graphics 300 you need to have 10.8.4, is it true ?
SimNationTV: It's the latest iMac 27' (basic model). It runs fine in High if used on
lower resolutions such as 1600 x 900 (native is 2560 x 1440 - may be too
much). I can push higher resolution and play smoother on Windows though :/
a shame, but oh well.
