What works

Everything! I have built large cities that fill up the largest block. Roads, houses, commercial and industrial areas, etc. Everything works. You can even use mods with success. This game runs great and performance is very good.

What does not

Additional Comments

The game will crash every hour or three, but then it does so on Windows also. This does not appear to be a fault of wine or linux. This game runs great and performance is very good. It gets an easy Platinum.
