Servers were being taken down last night at 9pm PDT for maintenance so this must have been why. I will have to check out my larger city to see how the traffic behaves.

interesting update. alot done on traffic, which i usually dont have a problem with. Tweeked the transit so now my transit is not working. Wish they would stop making these updates look like a major update. To me 2.0-3.0 is still in its 1.325 stage... time to not play for another month until a 'major' minor update comes out
