Social City releases new gifts, buildings, storage and a performance fix
The most noticeable addition will be all the new gifts and items. 10 brand new gifts were released, including 8 different Sakura paths, a path crossing, and a Japan cottage. The gifts themselves are not particularly interesting, since 8 of them are all various pathway layouts. For someone building a Japanese empire, you may be excited about all of these pathway layouts. In other gift related news, a new gift counter has been placed on the gift box so that you already know how many you have waiting to be placed. For the eager collector with many decorations, buildings and placed items, Social City now has storage.This is a much needed feature in Social City, because gifts can add up and buildings take up a lot of space. Having the ability to store items for later use will be a big help, especially when doing city renovations.
Several new buildings and leisure items were added. This includes the following:
Brick Family Home
Pink Victorian Home
For computers that are having trouble with running Social City, two new performance features were added. The first is that the "eye" icon is now back and with a simple click, all animations will be turned off. This can help with older computers or laptops that cannot run the game with all of the animations going at once. There is also a new "low quality mode." In this mode, Social City will automatically detect when your framerate is low and adjust your game settings so that you do not experience any major slowdowns. Some other minor enhancements and bug fixes were added that seem like they should help performance as well.
