    I just wanted to say a big thank you to the Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order teams for their dedication and hard work on the Paris DLC map and vehicles. Once again you guys have produced an excellent map which is full of unique challenges and is a really enjoyable map to play.

    The details on the buildings are great too and the fact you researched the street names and put them all in place the way you did really does help when planning out the tram and bus services plus it makes things a lot easier when running metro too.

    So I have to say well done and congratulations on your latest instalment to the Cities in motion Series of maps and DLC's. You all deserve the full 10 out of 10 on this one.

    Plus the download from Gamersgate was as fast as ever so I was able to play the DLC within minutes of the download finishing so that is another big plus point.

    I'm very much looking forward to your next DLC the London map when that is released in the future too.

    Keep up the good work guys and thanks again four such an enjoyable game.

    Thanks for the feedback. It certainly was interesting to make the Paris map. Personally I think we got the feel of the city quite nicely with the new buildings and landmarks (I did the Eiffel Tower ). Also it was important to us to get the street names correctly on the map. I can say as a non-French speaker that some of the street names presented a challenge to avoid typos since they can be quite complex in nature (compared to English street names in English-speaking countries). But it was exciting and I am very happy that our hard work can be seen in the map!

    Fun trivia: After so many hours investigating maps to DLCs I personally feel as if I knew some of the cities even if I haven't actually visited them.
    Current measurements suggest the Andromeda Galaxy is approaching us at 100 to 140 kilometers per second. The Milky Way may collide with it in 3 to 4 billion years merging into a single elliptical galaxy over the course of about a billion years.

    It would be nice if switched skins on Asparagus-Thomson and MF-69 gets fixed.

    Well, next time when you're on vacation, go to one of those cities and try to find stuff without the use of a map. And then tell us about your experience, of course!

    Why isn't the Paris DLC available from Amazon, like all the others? I bought my game and all DLCs from Amazon and I don't believe the other sources are available to me.

    Is this just a matter of waiting while the distribution channel is built up?

    I think you can buy DLC at gamersgate.com
    I think it will be compatible with the Amazon version of the game, but this is not confirmed.

    Just wanted to say it was a very pleasant surprise to see Paris so quickly (I wasn't expecting to see it before London) and it looks great! Amazing work, this is how DLCs should be about!

    The video suggests to build waterbus lines on the river. That's kind of a joke, right? Basically it is impossible to put the piers anywhere on the river bank...Even in the video it looks fairly funny that the way down to the pier goes through a block of concrete...
    Otherwise the map is really great and fun, but this is a bit annoying...

    Paris is 50% off on Steam.

    50% off on Steam now but if Steam feature the Cities in Motion franchise for one of the days of the sale the price could then be up to 75% off. I'll buy it on sunday for 50% off if it hasn't been cheaper by that point.

    It's 50% off on the entire franchise, not only Paris.

    CIM crashes when playing in Paris on Mac (Steam-Version)

    Hey, I got the Paris map from Steam and it seems there is a bug in there that consistently crashes the game when trying to build a bus stop (see screenshot, where the cursor is pointing)



    I have a stack trace if needed...
