One of the main reasons I bought my spot of mainland was because of the neighbourhood and it being a great starting point for tours via air, water and land. The road, Route 2, even is part of the Protected network.
Now exactly that is ruined, because sims are outsourced to a cloud and suspended when noone is on it. So they
1. Are not visible while noone is on them
2. have to boot from suspension when you enter them, which may take a minute and does not preload the scenerie
Which destills down to: Its ruined.
