This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades.
STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish!
Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts!
We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've 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 also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13.
Your contribution means a lot!
Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount
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.
Thanks so much!

In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.
I just had a chance to load up and look close at some of the cities and I must say, I am impressed. Very few regions pull off smooth terrain well and even fewer achieve gentle transitions to water, which is a must for me. The size and variance of the terrain is also a plus. All in all, it is simply an amazing region!
Wow! All these 'new' lots are fantastic! Thanks for your hard work for pumping these out.
Now I have to decide if I'n going to have to use this building now for my one plaza. Thanks for the predicament!
@T Wrecks ... Well, my lengthy tenure as a truck driver in ETS2 tells me that such corners sure are difficult, but they're possible.
And you may be right about the sign - it came from the 70s Style Safeway but I included it again here as it still fits the theme.
@Jack_wilds ... Were looking at about 9m, or a half tile in SC4 - that looks like just enough room to me.
While a lot of areas where I see wind turbines (and there are getting to be more all the time!) don't have much in the way of slopes, there are indeed some hilly regions and canyons around here. In any case, wind turbines do get built in hilly regions elsewhere. Anything slope friendly gets my vote, and the removal of the grass is brilliant! Nice job, Leshan!
