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.
Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount
Thanks so much!

ENG: You probably know the advanced wind turbine? So now the highly advanced wind turbine.
In addition to usual electricity produced but is not much more expensive.
FR: Vous connaissez sûrement l'éolienne avancée ? Donc voilà l'éolienne très avancée.
Qui produit plus d'électricitée mais qui est pas beaucoup plus cher.
The rapid growth and new infrastructure have squeezed the most of the energy potential of coal plants. In addition there are the pressures
of environmentalists groups
to stop the pollution of these focus , and the high cost of exporting the mineral.
Cala Des Foscos, One of the main industrial places in Ses Isles, choosed to build the new energy central
Renewable energy plan, which seeks to permanently stop these aging plants starts: wind energy fields virtually every population will be
created, and La Cala Des Foscos is building a solar power plant ultramodern.
Solar Energy Plant Ïn Ses Foscos
The Governor said: 'It is absurd that we have so many hours of sunshine throughout the year, and we are not taking advantage of
the energy potential of the same' It is estimated that the plant will be completed in 2007, and coal plants are closing will gradually
since late 2006.

Originally, the Wind Power Plant uses the civilian pickup truck as a service vehicle. It's always a random color and didn't seem to fit the theme very well. This truck is a new custom vehicle added to the game. It does not replace an existing car slot, it does not remove an existing vehicle. This is a big milestone for me proving that a vehicle can be added to the game. More research will follow! If you notice any problems, please report them in the comments and I will look at the issues as soon as possible. Be looking for more mods like this very soon! Thanks for your support. Happy modding

When I saw this, first thing that came to my mind were sharks. You know, sharks, they are so absolutely perfect animals.
On the other hand - it took nature 450.000.000 years to remaster them again and again to achieve perfection. So - most probably - you did even outmach nature (as I strongly believe you were faster on this - but still as sharp).
