SimCity now playable offline thanks to modder UKAzzer

Modder creates mod that lets you play SimCity offline, removes disconnect timer

At this point, SimCity is slowly becoming playable again for some users, and while EA is still fixing things, a modder has stepped up and created his own workaround that effectively removes the always on DRM.

UKAzzer's mod fixes pesky connection issue by removing the game's disconnect timer. Where you were once able to only get about 20 minutes of offline play, you will now be able to play indefinitely. You must reconnect however, if you want to save your game. In addition to disabling the disconnect timer, UKAzzer made it possible to tweak highways outside of your city, and changed the population count to more accurately reflect how many people are living in your city.

 

 

In the video above you can see UKAzzer tweaking freeways outside your city and we assume the disconnect timer disable working. The whole gaming world is waiting to see how EA responds to this mod. We are hoping that they embrace it, give UKAzzer recognition, and maybe even add it to the game core. However, it is more likely that EA will patch the game to block this mod and opt to keep their unneeded DRM. Let's wait and see what happens.
