Suggestions for SimCity 5 continue to pour in; below are some excerpts.

All I was doing was expanding the city , and dealing with the problems that come with that. Now, while this gives you enough work, I still need more thinks happening in the city , which are not connected to your power plant reaching limits, and your neighbour offering new terms in the deal.
SJMX writes: Small idea i had, how about seasons that change the appearance of the landscape but also change city life.
For example winter brings snow that brings bad traffic conditions but summer brings tourists and alike. This could affect how people plan their cities due to the ever changing conditions of the seasons. People would have to up the financing for transport and events in the holidays and drop them in the winter when the only people in the city are the residents and no tourists.
MajesticPL writes: The thing I’m missing in SC4 and I would love to see in SC5 is bus, subway and tram lines. I don’t like the way it’s solved right now, when you just randomly put some bus stops around the map. Why not making the whole mass transit system much clearer and coherent?
How about starting it with designing lines? First you name the line (e.g. Line A) choose the starting and ending point of it, then you put some stops (all in the project view) and only after designing the whole line, you accept the project and there it goes.
