    I just bought simcity 4. I was so excited and spent all last night building a great city, I saved it and when I tried to open it this morning i could not open it. On the region map the city area I saved was blank, it did not show the city shape, but did have the name and the name of the mayor.

    I tried to open and save another city, but the same thing happened.

    I tried to uninstall and reinstall but either I didn't do it right, or it didnt' work because no change happened.

    Please help. What should I do?

    Is there a SimCity 4 folder in ~/Users/yourname/?

    I suspect some permissions are incorrect or someone intentionally changed them, if you have multiple users. Try repairing permissions in Disk Utility.

    It sounds like the game isn't saving your data properly or not saving it in the proper location.

    I'd also recommend contacting Aspyr directly.

    Repairing of permissions does not descend into the /User directory. It only compares the BOMs of files found in /Library/Receipts/.

    If you are concerned about permissions in your home directory, do this:

    sudo chown -R yourusername:yourgroup ~yourusername

    Where naturally, yourusername and yourgroup are replaced with your short username and your group, respectively.
