      Simtropolis hardware upgrade - can you help?   06/22/2017

      We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our aging server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the additional load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task.  You may have noticed that we've been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we work out allocating resources for more optimal performance. We've also applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is something we'd like to be able to upgrade. The last time we upgraded hardware was a in 2012. Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Your contribution means a lot!  Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

  1. See the BAT exchange for the working SC4 BAT Lot of the same name. This model has very unique lighting as it has 3 layers of semi transparent poly's to give it a 3d depth when the bottom-most layer is lit. Check it out on how this is done.

  4. Stairs are extremely common, but are usually overlooked. I have put together a minipak of stairs you can use in your BAT creations. The files are in .3DS format, but all the installation instructions and usage instructions are included in the .ZIP file. The ZIP file also contains numerous textures - just a little bonus for downloading my stair pak! The textures have been chosen by me, and look great when used on these stairs. You will need to scale the stairs, and texture them yourself. This way you can do it how YOU want! I hope you have as much fun with these as I had making them! Comments and suggestions are appreciated!
