      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      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! Hardware Upgrades 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. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      Chat is back...   06/22/2017

      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.

Just noticed I reached 30 likes on my last CJ entry, something that's only happened 34 times so far for CJ's - you guys are awesome! :thumb:
And that leaderboard feature is really cool isn't it? check it out >>> http://community.simtropolis.com/leaderboard/?in=blog-entry_id&time=oldest
Having said that the record is still very much safe, the only one who might beat Kover is Kover himself *:lol:

Well, it seems I'm now a Squadron Leader. Ofc, I've heard of squadrons, but I checked with Google for the official definition:

squad·ron
ˈskwädrən/
noun
noun: squadron; plural noun: squadrons
  1. an operational unit in an air force consisting of two or more flights of aircraft and the personnel required to fly them.
    • a principal division of an armored or cavalry regiment, consisting of two or more troops.
    • a group of warships detached on a particular duty or under the command of a flag officer.

So, I'll just take the first one cause flying sounds more exciting than the other two options.

Now the question is: Who exactly are the personnel I'm the leader of? *:lol:

So I've not played SimCity 4 in probably like a month at least. I came back here to see whats going on and see I've passed 300 +.  Been trying to focus on Music and learning to use Ableton Live 9. 

Been playing The Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker and the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess on my wii u. I really have to say Twilight Princess looks amazing.

Wow thanks! I had no idea I was nearing 500 rep points! :ooh:

That means I got 100 rep points in one month, which is also a milestone (for me at least) :ohyes:

The green colour of the shrubbery in @MissVanleider's actual avatar matches the green colour of the reputation points absolutely perfect.

Which you can't say about the green colour in @matias93's actual avatar.

But this most probably absolutely unimportant coincidence brought to my attention that the number  2000  looks really good in green. And that's the number of reputation points matias93 has exactly while I'm posting this.

So congratulations!

Argh. I first misread that as "thanks for nothing, Fantozzi!!" and thought "My, why such an aggressive mood here?" And I already had some caffeine... :whatevs: In any case, congrats on reaching the 2,000 mark, @matias93! I'm sure there will be plenty more. *:yes:

The correct word is 'noticing', right? As I write in English as if I were using synonyms (and a weird but valid word order) in Spanish, sometimes this happens. I'll double check next time...

My Historic buildings pack got featured in the STEX! :ohyes:

Does that count as a milestone? I don't recall any of my other uploads being featured, also, how do the STEX features work?

I think you said it correctly, since the intention is to thank @Fantozzi for remarking your milestone in the thread, not merely noticing it. But I'm just nitpicking over the vagaries of language... Congratulations!

I think 'noting' makes sense to this context as well, at least according to Google *:P

Edvarz, I think I saw other uploads from you featured before, maybe you didn't notice it, or you didn't note it, or you didn't realize it, or whatever :rofl:

      I see some strange things in the gallery drawings Simtropolis lately. Some authors places where a large number of drawings. I think - we need a limit of accommodation. I think that for a series of similar drawings, there city journals...
      Hi, Simtropolians - What do You think about this?

      I'm curious to know Your opinion about the website Simtropolis. Today I started editing one site in my country. And I realized that this is far from the quality that I see on Simtropolis. How do You compare the quality of most of the other sites? Are there any sites built even more conveniently?  Are there any ideals in this world? Thank you.

      By now I'm sure many of you are well aware of our newly-founded SimCity 3000 forum and STEX categories.
      For those who haven't been keeping up with progress, there's been some really interesting discussions so far. Exploring areas of the game in more detail, including buildings,  conversions,  map generation,  terrain & water,  hex editing,  custom tree props,  and most recently property modding.
      Thanks everyone for your contributions so far, whether you've made one or multiple posts.

      And as a result, there's been some interesting trends in forum activity:

      Past 30 days
       
      Past 15 days
       
      Past 7 days
      (All data current as of 9th June 2017, 18:00 EDT)
       
      It just shows that with enough surrounding interest, there's still plenty of things to discover in a game released the previous century.
      OK, one year before the millennium, but still...

      Thank you Dirk for Your website. You have gathered here for a large community. All new city engineering games are here. This is the perfect solution. I can see and SC4 and SC3000 and Skylines here. It's fine - you made the right choice. Attracting SC3000 and Skylenrs gives a chance to survive SC4. Few of us with SC4... Thank You once more...

      Hello everyone,
      As we know, the SC3000.com and SC4ever.com look to be not maintained except for availability. No more features were added to these site. And, some interactive features are disabled due to merging the site with Simtropolis. By this, I'm deciding to start old content migration from these site.
      Intro
      The project missions are to provide old contents about SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4 to new users and to preserve old contents. Our vision is want to biggest preservative in the SimCity community. There aren't more info to be discussed here.
      Progress
      We are copied contents from SC4ever.com Knowledge Tree (this is very important thing) completely and we'll going to SC3000.com content migration. Support us by reading the "Contribute" section.
      Contribute
      Want to contribute? You can PM me with including some data: your name and your interest (are you want to copy all contents or SC3000.com/SC4ever.com). I'll review your profile (new profiles are allowed, but they are must active and has time and commitment to copy the contents). The content copying is allowed by @Dirktator as long as you don't selling the data and with proper attribution (including the source site and the original author).
      I hope, you want to join my team and give benefits to all.
      Thank you.
