Note! The Rush Hour expansion pack is no longer offered as a stand-alone product. You’ll have to purchase the combined SimCity 4 Rush Hour package called SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition to get the new features offered.
Rush Hour for SimCity 4 adds several new sought after features by the fans. One of the most, pre-expansion pack, wanted things were avenues to help alleviate traffic in your downtown core and make the cities more realistic. Another feature requested by fans were a markup tool to name neighbourhoods and make notes in special areas. The expansion pack also introduces U-Drive It! which lets you take control of civic vehicles, trains, helicopters and much more for fun or for rewarding missions that often unlocks new exciting things for the player. Last but no least a brand new spanking and shining building set of European styled architecture is included in the package.
But perhaps the most important aspect of Rush Hour is that it lets you add much more user-made content then before, there are literally thousands of objects online that requires the expansion pack to function properly.
