Christmas is early this year: Monte Cristo is pleased to announce
the release of our very special Christmas content pack! This new pack
brings seasonal decorations and new lightnings at night, both to solo
and online cities, as well as a few other changes you can find below.

Christmas decorations

The festive season has started in all cities and a series of
decorations are automatically added to the streets:
*  Electric decorations in the streets
*  Christmas trees in city halls' gardens and other buildings
*  A Christmas market with an animated merry-go-round

glowing light falls from lamp posts and headlights from cars are
turned on.
