    How to force join a server your friend is on, but you cant join. : SimCity


    It's modifying a config file (instead of config.cfg they call it something stupid thinking we won't snoop around with a text editor ) and the file's contents change every time you close the game. Doubt it's able to be picked up on, let alone banned. This isn't a hack or modding, all games have allowed modification of config.cfg
    @CAM

    Just like to say a BIG thank you for your solution. +rep

    It's helped me get many players onto my region

    EU West 1. Got 1 abandoned free (you got limited / deluxe edition? Doesn't work for normal).

    Currently awaiting a reply from EA to kick 2 inactives on my region. Should be solved soon.

    P.s. I do have a city, and money, it's just not there, but the money is.

    Name is Rikevfox although I am at my wits end with this game. Depends if I land an Origin ban or not after the feedback I left them on the forums...

    I have the standard version with no DLC. If someone has abandoned a city in a region and you want to take it over, you must have the exact same DLC they have or it blocks you from taking over the city. Even if you have the DLC, if you buy it in a package and someone else bought the packs standalone, they are still incompatible when taking over abandoned cities.

    This also means if you want to play in a region with friends, if there is only an abandoned city left then there is a good chance you cannot join them due to this DLC Block even if the abandoned city is a fresh, untouched plot.

    That's some clever design by EA there... Wow.
