Latest Cities Skylines II Patch Improves Cargo Storage & The Mail System

Patch 1.0.15f1 has been released for Cities Skylines II and has introduced even more much needed fixes focusing on the mail system and storage transfer for cargo and industrial buildings and bringing in several fixes elsewhere.

Cities Skylines II Patch 1.0.15f1

The cargo and storage system for industrial goods in Cities 2 has caused a bit of a bother amongst players. It was found that cargo terminals wouldn’t work as efficiently as they could and your city would often import more often than it would utilise resources within your city causing a bit of a dent in the cities finances. This latest patch has brought in some fixes for storage transfer including some efficiency improvements and changes to the ways that cargo terminals import cargo. Path finding on the terminals has also been improved alongside some general pathfinding for citizens. Alongside storage fixes the mail system has had several bugs fixed.

UI and graphics have seen some improvements and fixes including better terrain smoothing for networks and large buildings. Many fans have noted the rough terrain when placing larger buildings, but this is easily fixed if you know your way around the terrain tool.

Just like many of the other poor releases recently, Cities 2 is slowly shaping up to become a fantastic City Builder, though if you can look past the issues and performance, it already is pretty damn good.
