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!
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!

KOSC Presents: RetailMania - Simgoober's Super Shopping Center #1
Super Shopping Center #1 is the 2nd release from my RetailMania series and the first in a long line of classic Simgoober re-lots. This set of lots is based on Simgoober's original Super Center 2 strip mall complex and enhances the original through two principles: breaking up the original buildings into individual lots for growing as well as offering several gigantic new ploppable complexes in varying configurations.
The original strip mall complex has been made bigger, badder and massively more detailed than before. While the original came in two versions (18x6, 18x7), the lot layout was pretty straightforward and only differed in an additional row of parking space. This set kicks this up a notch and comes in three very distinct (and large) ploppable versions. Furthermore, each individual building also has a small footprint growable that is more suited for urban use.
Included in the following package are a total of 6 lots: 3 CS$$ growables and ploppables. Two of the ploppables use all three buildings while the last complex is a smaller one that only utilizes two. All ploppables are transit enabled.
If you desire to plop the growables, use the buildingPlop cheat and look for exemplars starting at KOSC_SG_Super (requires ExtraCheats.dll)
The included growable lots will provide between 261-342 CS$$ jobs. They are available in the following configurations:
1 5x5 front, stage 2
2 7x3 front, stage 2
Ploppable lots are located in the landmarks menu and provide between 622-932 CS$$ jobs in the following flavors:
20x11, $111,000 plop cost
15x11, $100,000 plop cost
12x10, $80,000 plop cost
Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README.

This is the first time the game has crashed in over a year and a half. It doesn't even reach the EA splash. I deleted (and later replaced) a plugin that was being awfully repetitive, so is this what's been causing this recent problem?

This reminds me of the old one up by my house. The new Walmart got built next door in a big open area with the newer super center building, the old one now is a Tractor supply Co., Dollar Tree and a little Hibbett sports.
