An update for SimCity, which fixes a significant number of issues will be released on Monday. According to the extensive patch notes, new additions with the patch include a Mayors Mansion allowing mayors to “drive their fancy cars to work, or take their helicopter, limo, or sports car if the modules are present.” The HUD now color-corrects when in colorblind mode, and data maps will show the filtered color when a color filter is enabled. Casinos, education, and transit fixes were also noted. Head through the link for the patch notes. Expect it to go live on April 22.
