      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 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! Hardware Upgrades 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

Jacque Fresco, the founder of The Venus Project, a strong advocate of a Resource Based Economy, and one of the most inspiring persons in our days, died peacefully on the morning of May 18, at 101 years of age. He was a man of science and rationality, who dedicated his life to find the best approach possible to solve all of our problems, like the need of wars and poverty, and redesign our culture, this time based not on money and greed, but on what makes us human, like curiosity and kindness. When the world was losing the hope for something better, Jacque gave us something better than hope. The blueprints to build the better we all need and deserve.

"Every action and decision we take - or don't - ripples into the future. For the first time we have the capability, the technology, and the knowledge to direct these ripples."

"If you want a better world, you have to work towards it. If you do nothing, nothing will happen."
