The future holds hope however as Maxis are still exploring offline single player.

Cast your mind way back to October last year and you’ll remember that Maxis were preparing the path for modders to add and change content within SimCity. Now they are positively encouraging people to do so, but the guidelines they have set up significantly limit the potential mods will have.
As explained by PC Gamer, Maxis posted a blog post last week outlining the rules governing modding with regards to SimCity – and while they have a lot more legalese compared to the ‘first draft’ posted back in October, the content remains largely the same. Most notably, Maxis’ insistence players do not alter anything affecting multiplayer games remains.
Fortunately, Maxis noted in a recent forum post that they are still exploring an offline single player mode, which should open up the modding potential significantly if it comes into effect.
