I'm not touching this until the new year or a hail Mary patch comes in. I will say, it blows my mind that there are 100K players on STEAM alone AND the thing is Mostly Negative. I would think if you're playing the game now, you absolutely do not want to wait and are okay with the technical and graphical caveats (i.e., you know what you're getting yourself into).

Yeah it is the stuttering that would get to me. Before getting a new computer I was happy running something like CK3 at 30FPS. . .ish, as that was stable and you aren't often flying around your region (I like to as it breaks up the scenery but not by much). But I definitely am going to be zooming all over the city checking things out I'd imagine.
. . .I'm not done with PDX games for sure (waiting for the those next-generation versions of Europa and Hearts of Iron and of course - Stellaris), but boy does this sour me on these guys. Just no reason to do this to your developers.

It's weird seeing some people be like "30fps at 1080p, good enough for something simple like a city builder " and other people saying "30fps at 1080p is inexcusable in something simple like a city builder."

For me, the most risiculous part is how they are insisting this is a next generation game. It's going to need high system requirements to run well.
And people are running it, according to that performance spreadsheet, with a 7950X3D and a 4090 and 96gb (that has to be a typo) of RAM and it's struggling to maintain 60fps for 100k population at 1920x1080. That there is not a next gen resolution for semi stable framerates on that rig made out of halo components.

I'm not too worried, I'm sure they'll get it sorted. It's not great to release in this state but doesn't seem like something they can't come back from.

played it for 4 hours. performance for me was okay but it needed every ounce of the 4080 to sustain 4k rez and maintain 30-45fps. this is playable but i think it needs to be better
gameplay wise this is so much better than skylines 1 imo. much more decision making across the board, i rarely had to really sit and think about my actions in skylines 1... almost never. ive got more stuff to think about in this city than i can fit in my head at once. very cool
terrain tool sucks and that is a big problem because this game really needs a good terrain tool because left to its own devices this game does zany shit with lots, also the stock maps are generally very subtly hilly everywhere all the time so you're constantly dealing with elevation even in areas that are flat to the untrained eye
road tool is okay, bridge tool is infuriating....
overall im happy but they definitely have some work to do

What is bothering/bad to you with the terrain tool? I've found it pretty effective and intuitive coming from modded CS1 so far. Not saying your wrong or invalid, but maybe something can be explained to make it less frustrating.

10k citizens is about the mark where my computer starts to throw in the towel.. especially when it starts snowing
the not enough customers thing im still trying to figure out. i think its traffic related but hard to be sure
