SC3K managed it, SC4 managed it (slightly worse)

When you have tens of thousands of little sims all moving about, dynamic pathing becomes a nightmare to compute. It's much easier when the sim is spawned, to set it's destination via shortest x,y straight line than to account for road speed etc. Lazy programming, sure, but it's either that or older systems get bogged down and the game is unplayable.
fucking RC1 and 2 managed it, and they were designed by 3 dudes. this shit isn't hard - 'x route is jammed, find y route' 'x route is shortest, but y route is quickest' etc
