This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts!
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!
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!

I am running SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition for Mac (the one that is in the Mac App Store), and the route query says that sims are commuting to abandoned commercial and industrial buildings. Is there a way to fix this or is it normal?
Apartment buildings have long been on my list to tackle BATting, just to add to the variety and compete with all the repetitive Maxis stuff. With contributions like this, though, I feel like it wouldn't be worth my time, because mattb325 has them covered and done so very, very, very well. Always a joy to see stuff like this on the STEX.
Nice BAT, would give 5/5, but attention here, folks!!! The Seaview Apartments model in this download has the same IID as the Cast Iron Lofts model from Don Miguel! So it won't grow the way it should! Needs to be corrected by hand!
Love your work, but since a handful of files now from different users require offsite files that link to dead links I wish it was a rule here that all dependencies should be on site somehow. Thanks for the reup of the files...
I'm still working on the Maxis Vanilla tilesets presentation, but yeah its endless how many amazing artists have contributed to the SC4 repository over the past 14 years. The problem with the tilesets and with RCI is that there's too much repetition. I'm going to use for the first time a Maxis blocker that will eliminate all vanilla repetition and reveal whatever user created programming defines. However, my project is not specific to agriculture. We'll get back to that later.
Thanks! I grabbed that one too. I'm not ready yet to kill them all, but I do want other stage 3 farm buildings to compete with Pedriana. Ideally I'd like to find a few more.
In the meantime I'm now on a downloading frenzy getting all of @dk1's stuff. Their simple elegance (and the convenience of no dependencies) makes them ideal for mixing in with my otherwise nearly plain vanilla Maxis content.
