Commuters and garbage trucks to get a whole lot smarter.

Maxis’ Alexander Harkness has detailed some of the changes coming SimCity 7.0 which, if updates continue at the rate they have been, should be out some time next week.
The changes will result in less clumping together of police vehicles, garbage trucks, and other service vehicles. Garbage trucks especially will be visibly improved, says Harkness, as they’ll be able to claim all the areas along their route rather than constantly freaking out and trying to race each other to every pile of garbage.
The new system will also be able to properly take congestion into account, using weighted values to determine when a detour is a good idea and when sticking to the same path and belligerently trying to grind through is a better solution.
SimCity’s Mac version was recently announced for August 30. Get the details on that here.
