Additional Comments

The game is fully playable, performs well and runs smoothy. It occasionally crashes while saving, it just freezes and you have to kill the process. The city does not save, so you lose your progress since the last successful save. This has happened to me 4 or 5 times in 20 hours of play. Make sure to save regularly. Sometimes when exiting the game, the process does not end even though the game is no longer running. Make sure to check your process list and kill SimCity4.exe if it has failed to close. I do not think that these crashes are caused by Wine, as I remember that the game is generally unstable on Windows too. Launch Options: -CustomResolution:enabled -r1920x1080x32 -intro:off -CPUCount:1 -CPUCount:1 prevents random crashes to desktop, and does not noticably affect performance.
