Hmm... I put the words "Purchase Societies Destinations at EA" in my keywords and the same link you posted popped up on near to the bottom of the first page. So my bad. You simply don't know how to use google. Why would I type "EA" into Google? If I knew I had to go there to buy it, I wouldn't be s...

The main reason google can't see it is probably because google currently doesn't know how to scan through flash sites. This will be changed in the near future from what I hear. That's not true on two points. Firstly the EA store isn't in Flash, mostly JavaScript actually which is worse, and Flash c...

Place to buy Destinations!

I have to admit that EA have poor delivery to market channels. I've been looking everywhere to buy this expansion only to be redirected via a forum link by a regular poster. This is ridiculous. You can't even Google for the purchase of it because EA have a really poorly optimised website so Google d...

There is a known problem where, on some hardware configurations, the game will stop rendering as you move around the map. While the game is still running in the background, you will not be able to see anything updating on your screen -- giving the sensation that your game has locked up. The best wa...

Well, 'very soon' is good enough for now. Here's hoping EA deliver the patch promptly and the fixes mean I can build a bigger city at last. It's been so frustrating because the game is damn good.

I guess with the lack of communication both TM and more importantly EA provide we have to draw our own conclusions: ⋅ Not enough resources being thrown at patch #3 due to expansion pack ⋅ Patch #3 still hasn't resolved the freeze/crash bug and testing continues ⋅ The pa...

Well, the published article both EA and Tilted Mill contributed to stated that the patch would be released in the next couple of weeks. This was stated on the 28th of January. It's now the 2nd March and still no patch. Why did anyone in EA/TM set expectations for the release date? This is failed bas...

I also think that many peoples problems will be related to .NET. I have had a corrupted install of .NET in the past and a few games would work and a few would not. I actually paid the MS tech support team to help me fix the problem but they refunded my charges because they could not fix it and I ha...

Panther, why you persist with sarcastic remarks is beyond me. How do you expect people to put up with spending money on a game that fails to run? What is not to understand about it? The statement you refer to has now been stated three times with the previous two patches achieving nothing. What's so ...

so I guess you just want to complain rather than get your problems fixed. ... If your not part of the solution, your part of the problem. What nonsense! How forgiving should a consumer be for a product that doesn't work for them? You sound like the perfect customer. Maybe you'd like to buy my old P...

Game Update #3

This is an interesting excerpt from a Brazilian website interview with David Beebe: SCP : Even with the patch # 2, which has many features and fixes to the game, many players still could not enjoy playing SCS. Do you have any prediction to solve these problems reported by those players? David Beebe ...

Should anyone tell this dude that it could be that the game has a bug? Why does everyone have a resolute resolve to blame the system when we know the game has issues?

Wait for patch #3 which is out soon and it might make a difference.

you'd be lying to say Patch #2 didn't solve some bugs/errors. That's hilarious Jud, truly hilarious. Claiming things are improved is one thing, making a real difference is another. I'll say again, nobody has posted, "LOLOMG PATCH2WORKSSS!!!LOL". All those claims are valid but make very little diffe...

You mean, it didn't fix anything for YOU. Just because it didn't doesn't mean fixes weren't included. If you read the technical forum you'll see it's not just me, it's plenty of other people too. If fixes were included, please state them? Maybe you have some 'internal knowledge' that us paying cust...

Unfortunately, I can't give out a specific date for the upcoming game update. Even if I could, I'd have to seal these stubborn lips. Release date control is, for the most part, handled by EA. Hopefully you can also understand why I can't explain as to why it hasn't been released earlier. If you wis...

No. I didn't notice any fixes because it didn't fix anything. Simple really.
