One of the most fun virtual city game ever developed is now on your iPad! SimCity is invading our iDevices,given that it's iOS 3.0 or higher. Experience the fun of urban planning by building cities from scratch. Get your hands on ancient and historical civilizations with 41 included historical landmarks. Be the mayor without even campaigning, run a city how you want to. Finally, be a god and send different disasters to destroy and rebirth neighborhoods. A game like this would surely keep you busy for hours and hours, and this is for only $0.99!
The only problem is, it crashes. Good thing the game is that fun, hence some users really went out of their way to find solutions to these problems. The fact that you're currently reading this blog in the first place means that you're probably going through the same problem, right? Here are three solutions that would not harm you in trying.
SimCity App Crash Fixes
The first solution is to free up some space.The SimCity app requires more space than what it claims. Getting a gig free would help a lot on your crashing and freezing issues. The game requires a lot of free memory to move around and when it feels that its needs aren't met, it causes the game to crash.
After having deleted a lot of apps and your game is still not working properly then reboot it. There are two ways of resetting your iPad. The first one is the soft reset by holding down the Sleep/Wake button for a couple of seconds until the slider appears. Slide to power off. Turn on your device and check out if your app is already functioning well. If it's still not functioning as it should then move on to hard resetting it. This is done by holding down two buttons: the Sleep/Wake and the Home buttons. Hold them until the Apple logo appears, disappears, and appears again. It could take some time depending on how many apps you have. After these reboots your game should already be as good as new.
If SimCity is still hanging and crashing, then maybe the next solution is the one for you? Delete farm zones. This solution is still unexplained but I'm guessing this has to do with graphics and resolution, hence the game crashes all the time. Deleting farm zones or low density industrial should finally do the trick.
If for any instance your game should continue crashing, there's only one solution left, and that is way beyond our hands. Return to the site where you have downloaded the app, and see if there are any updates available. Maybe this update is the solution to the crashing problems. After updating and the crashing still continues, then you could try the solutions listed here all over again and see if they work this time.
Bottom line is, SimCity is a really fun game, and trying all the efforts to keep it from crashing is going to be worth it. but of course, everything has its limits, as well as every game.
