What works

Installation via offline-version, gog-installer did not work but that could be a temporary problem. Got a lot of 503 in squid-log and no internet-connection-errors from installer without proxy.

Additional Comments

Had a lot of graphical glitches, but that seems to be a problem also on windows.

Best resolution for me was:

wine "SimCity 4.exe" -CustomResolution:enabled -r1920x1080x32 -d:OpenGL -intro:off

wine "SimCity 4.exe" -CustomResolution:enabled -r1920x1080x32 -d:Software -intro:off

also works for me.

The game crashes from time to time but that seems to be normal for simcity4, so save often.
