Help me. Sim City 4 is a great game but there is a problem. Every time you move around the city (via the mouse) the buildings, trees, shadows disapear. This really puts me off!!! Sim City 3000 never did this.

Anyway i went to a few messageboards and other people have been experiancing the same problem. I then went to the readme file and it says "people with ATI graphic cards will loose detail when scrolling through the city because of hardware limitations". I cant believe Maxis had the nerve to say that and not fix this problem.

I heard people fix this problem by altering a few codes in the game..does anybody know these codes??

If nobody knows the codes then I'll have to buy an Nvidia Geforce 4 - ti4200 card. And anyone who has a ATI- Radeon should do the same.
Even if people bought the really expensive Radeon 9700 still have this problem.
But plz, dont make me buy a card if it can be fixed.
