it's possible to enable debug mode
So what your saying is no it doesn't work and all you did was turn on testing? Once the full set of features work THEN AND ONLY THEN can you unequivocally state that offline mode works. All I see in the video is a lot of debug options being used to lay stuff down and kick off events, you know things that should be available in a debug mode. People still complaining about connection issues obviously haven't played the game. I haven't had problems for the last week.But progress can only be saved on the Origin servers, so a connection will be required at some point. Access to SimCity's region features also isn't possible – at least, not yet.
