Not So "Great Work"arounds

Space Center Great Work Bug:

January 8, 2013: I've heard multiple reports of the Space Center Great Work having difficulty pulling in the 300 workers required for it to function.  I don't know if it's an official bug, but if you're having the same problem, you're not alone. It only happens with the Space Center. The other Great Works are working out ok.  Leave a comment if you're having the same difficulty.

February 5, 2014: The developers are aware of the issue and there has been some suggestions by users that it is related to specific maps. You can read more about this bug on the SimCity messageboards.

April 22, 2014: Mark Johnson over on the SimCity messageboards has been testing out the Space Port great work and finding out which maps it can be built on, and which it doesn't. He's compiled the following list. (Source)

Great Work Syncing Bug:

Several updates ago there were many issues with Great Works not syncing properly. This issue has been resolved, so I deleted that information from this page.


  1. i have had an issue where i build up 4 cites and get the $1M fee to build great works go to all the cites to make sure i can send stuff to the works and one city says that there is no great work and i am able to build again.

    This has happened to me me several times all EA say is start again...

    1. Thanks for reporting back. I'm glad to hear it worked on at least 3 out of the 4. It's clearly not working 100%, as in your case it was 75%. Maxis has GW syncing as one of the issues currently being worked on. You can read the official list here: It's my #1 gripe with the game right now, but I do believe visiting each of the cities does help.

  2. Yes! That's right that you were in the guild and everyone helps. I'm Phongpanot from the guild
