      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      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

It certainly isn't ST and it certainly is PayPal.

I've checked and it's working for me (Mac, Safari 10.1) so perhaps web browser/Java/cache related. I recreated your situation and once I selected US the page reloaded to give me State and ZIP code options. Does your page reload when you select the US? 

(I also selected the UK and the form changed again for UK specific details)

I am unable to pay for anything because paypal wont let me choose states, I can only choose Canadian provinces. I PMed Dirk about this but it's been a few days, maybe someone else can help. I am unsure if this is a ST problem, paypal problem, or only a problem for me and wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this problem?




Thanks for your intended support of the site.

If it's any help, I was able to retrieve the list of US states (or other country area) by:

  1. First entering the desired Donation amount at the top.
  2. Selecting the Country. The page will then auto-reload (you may need to enter a quick security code).
  3. The correct area list should now be populated, and can be selected. The same also for other country specifics, such as "ZIP Code" vs "Postcode".

Not entering the donation amount seems to prevent the fields from updating. Since it rather counter-intuitively throws an error upon selecting the country, once the page is refreshed. PayPal really ought to improve that, such as by only validating once the form is submitted.

Hopefully this works for you. *:)

If not, I'll inform Dirk via the emergency line.

An update:

Dirk has now changed the PayPal form to an alternative method, which should hopefully simplify the checkout process for donations.

Hey thanks for all the help. I'm currently having different problems with pay pal and can't try to solve this current problem but I appreciate the responses. If I don't respond just assume my problem is solved. ;) Thanks.

      Hello Simtropolitans! I'm Sebastian anmd I'm gonna be your narrator for the very unique Stepped cliffs city journal, or more specifically, map and city journal.
      The map will be available (terrain ready to play) once I will have completed this City Journal.
      Here, I wanted to create something unique with a very different story from what we're used to hear/listen to.
      So here I begin with the very first hours of mapping...
      It all began by a simple image in my mind, two cliffs at the edges of the map's bounds, a middly steep valley between 'em. A simple image that took 2hours to make both cliffs... 30 mins after, I was trying to figure out how I could make this map playable, because I don't want a very lot of water in the map.
      Back to the real world where I live at, there is no such similiar thing  around me. All I can see outdoor is the city.

      Hello there everyone, I have been playing SC4 for many years now, and had no problem with creating various cities with the in-game buildings, and as of recent, I have been looking online for skylines and layouts which inspire me, and couldn't help but notice all these buildings I have never even seen before, most of which are apparently downloadable. I am brand new to this community, and no matter how old the game gets it will always be among my favorite, would someone kindly explain how to download this content? I am 21 but not tech savvy as far as DLC goes and would love to join all of you. Thank you all!

      We've tweaked the SimCity 3000 Files section of the STEX to be for player created content and have added a separate SC3K Maxis Files category for the extra stuff provided by Maxis.
      So, just a general heads up announcement.

      G'day guys,
      While I am currently working on my first BAT, how does one go about making curved walls?
      I have been reading up about this and it appears that there are ways of achieving this.
      Unfortunately, it seems that the Philippo Tutorial doesn't highlight this aspect.
      What is the best way please?

      Hello everyone,
      Today's June 1 in Indonesia. But, the donation tracker isn't updated to reflect this (timezone diff?). Alright, we've exceeding the May donation goal (102%!). This is impressive. Thank you, all donators! Without you, we can't survive in long time.
      For those want to donate, it's fine. By donating to the community, you'll help the community. Yes, you may not helping directly. But, hosting is important component to the community. We've experiencing slightly increase (I don't know the data so I can't estimate it accurately) on expenses because our user growth. Don't hesitate to donate us.
      Thank you.
