I agree that there should be a way to turn off or, at least disable individual, disasters. I had zombie outbreaks (seriously...even SimCity needs zombies?!) in 3 separate cities in a span of 2 hours when I was playing the other night. I'd love to be able to turn off all but tornado, earthquake, and meteors when I play. Those things are real natural disasters (nuclear meltdown I don't consider to be a 'natural disaster' and should always be in play). The regions should also have a modifier and visible indicator for which are more likely to happen, too. This would approximate the fact that different areas of the world have different disasters, i.e. tornadoes happen more often in the middle of the US, earthquakes happen on the west coast.
Why i play in sandbox, i can't be assed with disasters ruining my city
thats why disasters should only be enabled in sandbox mode. regular mode should never have disasters. ea ****ed up on this issue, of course, one of many issues.
Nah, disasters spice things up and keep you from settling in too much. The game is easy enough as it is. Disasters are pretty much necessary, though it should be an option for those who dont want it.
The giant lizard attacked my city twice in one hour and blew up my processor and trade ports both times, killing my only source of income, as well as destroying city hall, which stopped both the water and sewage treatment center from working at all, and led to a city wide blackout, which meant I couldnt create and sell electronics even if I rebuilt the facilities. Then my city was hit by a meteor. My city was brought to it's knees, but I recovered, and overcoming the challenge was fun.
They're a herd of people eating monsters! We can't let them have their way!!
