How to Join a Region With Friends
SimCity 5 is a fun game… but it has some launch warts. For one, Origin’s friend system is screwed up, and with it so is the private region play.
So here is a quick tip on:
How to join regions in SimCity 5
- You need to be on the same server (at the launch screen lower left).
- Someone needs to create the region.
- Make the region public.
- The Friend system may or may not show your friends. So, go to Friends and search for them by Name. Like in the image below.
- Type in their name, hit enter, and the search will show them even though they don’t show in your list. It will also show the region they are in.
- Then you can click to join their region.
You’re off to mayorship! Enjoy!
