Cities: Skylines Bug Fixes

Why can't I run CS when I can run games like Planet Coaster?

I recently bought a new laptop, which specs are: i7-1065G7, Intel Iris Plus Graphics, 8GB RAM, (although recently I have created a larger pagefile for it). This laptop is capable of running Planet Coaster at low settings, so I assumed that when Game Debate told me I could run Cities: Skylines at medium settings, it was correct. It is not. The game does start and I am able to somewhat run it on the lowest settings, but inevitably after a few seconds of gameplay, the screen freezes, the sound continues, and it has to be forced closed via Task Manager without ever giving an error message. It's very frustrating to be told you can run a game smoothly only to not be able to play it at all.

To my understanding City Skylines isn't very well optimized and it'll tank even a 550ti like no other, and reading on Reddit I noticed there was a post

I would suggest looking into using a Dedicated GPU to play the game or look for low res resources online like a mod and play that way.
