Nice changes. Though it seems that the permanent static link between jobs/schools and workers/students hasn't been improved, they still don't have to reach their destination to keep the business going.
In spite of this complaint I'm looking forward to try out the new stuff. :)

Also: do mountaintops also get increased land value? If not, you could add this in a quick patch; it can't be too much trouble since you already have some sort of routine that determines it for the beaches.

That sounds almost to good to be true, so please specify what this means exactly. Is this about the simulation itself, in other words will disabling get me one steady state (the way the game works currently) instead of the 2 different states of day and night, or is that just cosmetic, making "night"-time just as bright as the "day"?

edit: nvm, it's a lot clearer in Dev Diary 5. (The answer is yes, it's not just cosmetic, we can really opt out.)

It would be cool if we could inspect an ex-convict to see what crime he/she did to get him/herself arrested, just saying :D
