I thought it didn't make much sense from the beginning that commercial buildings didn't need freight. If anything, I feel like this would be a good thing considering it always bugged me that my industry would constantly complain that they had nowhere to ship to. You pretty much had to build a trading depot for your industry just to keep them happy.
I'm not really understanding you, TC. In the real world, and in the past SimCity games as well, cities -need- industry before commercial can thrive/take over later. So now they fixed it to make industry revelant, but you're angry about it???
