      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.

Damn that's a real shame. Thank God I downloaded all of Paeng's little files in the forum sections of Simpeg4. Are there any plans of posting the coal cheatsheet on Simtropolis as part of this new PLEX legacy section?

......  We will also be attempting to update the omnibus here with what articles we've managed to save from the simposium.  However, that is currently only a bare handful of what was lost.

See PM.

This is really sad and quite a blow! I will miss SimPeg dearly. I had many laughs over there. I will keep the bookmark anyway in remembrance and look forward to the section here.

Man this sucks!!  I want to thank Pegasus and the Simpeg staff for all their hard work and many wonderful creations over the years.  Your BATs, Lots and Mods truly enhanced SC4 and contributed to its longevity. 

Hopefully as Pegprod stated, most of the PLEX can be preserved here on the STEX.

These are a few file attachments by Paeng that were available on the forum but not on the PLEX. I archived them. These are the only ones I have on hand. If anyone has more let's archive them as well.

Paeng Inseki Big Rock (I am not sure what this is)

 

Paeng Ped Malls Park (Another gem!)

 

2 Folders: (1) The Coal Collection v_100 & (2) Urban Funicular

 

Paeng Sidewalk Texture Mod (This may have been posted on the PLEX but it may be needed for those who want the same Sidewalk Textures in the aforementioned "Paeng Ped Malls")

 

INTRO Replacement (Exclusive to the PLEX and unavailable on the STEX. DO NOT dump this in your MyDocuments/Plugins folder. Backup the game's intro.dat file before replacing. I do not have a readme available.)

I was never a frequent visitor of Simpeg but surely it will be missed. I have great time searching for bats and mods in PLEX

What a loss!

Simpeg felt like a nice little café where I went to have some conversation with friends from all over the world. Now they closed the café down and I have to walk the streets...

 

PS: maybe Paeng can upload his gems to the STEX? I guess he didn't crash with the site?

That is a big loss for the whole community!

I did visit SimPeg once in a while and was always amazed by the creations they had over there!

Kind regards!

It's a pity SimPeg is gone. I didn't go there often, but I liked reading some of the articles and tutorials. As for Paeng's little files that were attached to posts, I guess I have quite a few of those. Is he still around?

My, oh my, this is absolutely terrible! :(  I can recall some of the good times I had at SimPeg.  Some of them involve going there to get dependencies; some don't even like doing that, but I didn't mind.  Other memorable experiences include downloading those lots that I either needed to replicate a coastline or rural area.  Some of the lots I got from the site were simply those that I saw in some CJ and had to have.  Like I said, these were good times!

I did make it into the PCG beta testing group at one point, meaning I was able to beta test SPAM before it officially hit the shelves.  That was certainly one of the good times I've have with SC4.  Some of my favorite memories of SimPeg also include reading Paeng and Abcvs's CJ's, and it's heartbreaking that those are gone.  At least now I know Peg didn't just decide to shut the site down; in the back of my mind, I didn't think he would just do that out of the blue as committed to the site and content as he has been.

I always regarded Simpeg as a specialty resource for custom content.  If we are able to now access this, or most of it, on the STEX it is incumbent on us to make sure we have good backup facilities off-site.  Life often hands you lemons.  Let's hope we can make some lemonade.

There were also a couple SPAM patch files in the forums (bolded; that I only found quite recently - just in time it would seem); not sure if they've been lost along with the rest.

The files I have from the forums:

  • Cranes MMP by paeng
  • SC3000 Style Incinerator by paeng
  • Horses MMP by paeng
  • Airport Pasture Patch by paeng
  • Cleaner Maxis Farm Fields by ScottFTL
  • SPAM Irrigation Canal to Ppond-Transition by Becca
  • Seasonal Grain-Sunflowers by paeng
  • Blind_Prop by paeng (I believe this had been provided in a later pack)
  • The Coal Collection by paeng

If those have been lost, I have the original downloads available in my personal archive which I can provide if/as authorized.

I put this in the other thread, but we haven't yet tried to collate which forum attachments we have copies of yet.  Paeng is still here and working with us, but he hasn't checked which of his attachments he still has in raw form.  Just to be safe, anyone with forum attachment files can PM them to myself or Pegprod.  We'll get to them, but first we have to get Pegasus' stuff moved over, sorted, and updated.

It's terrible that Simpeg is gone, never got to finish going through some of the CJs and threads... At least it's not completely dead, it will be nice to see the new PLEX section, I'm seeing files mentioned I'm not sure I have or knew about.

I had a number of lots and MMPs that I included as attachments on my Lot and Mod threads... I'll have to go back and find them and maybe get them included as part of the PLEX content or something...

Now where am I going to go to find out what I planted in my garden last year? :no:

If we all co-operate, we might be able to get a pretty good restoration on this site.  With the Internet, nothing is ever completely lost.

The Wayback Archive only really works if you have the links to the pages and you also never know just how much has actually be saved by the Wayback, but once you have that ....

You can actually get into some of the CJ's and tutorials

Unfortunately with the Wayback they have to visit the site and so taking Paeng's CJ as an example its from a snapshot taken in 2010 and only some of the pages are there  :(

... there are maybe more recent snapshots but its finding them is the problem as the WayBack has over 8000 pictures, links, forum posts, etc saved from the SimPeg site

      Hello everyone,
      While I don't visit the simpeg.com in my life, I sad with the 2015 SimPeg.com fatal error. The site data is gone. However, Pegasus fans gives the Pegasus' and his friends' mods to the PLEX & STEX staff. But, there is no new mod created by the SimPeg again, The Prop Pox bug maker in the some mods still unfixed (Sorry SimPeg, I'm not hate you. I just send the fact that is on SC4D). We don't see the CDK development again. We don't see the new SPAM that support the CAM, officially.
      But, the reality is changed. I'm not a modder. But I can make the SimPeg revive again. We don't want the SimPeg staff is retired from making the quality mod (if they still can make a mod). We want the SimPeg staff making the mod, again. In this plan, I will show you how the new SimPeg led, what are the vision, what mods we make, and the challenge that we need solved.
      Organization
      The new SimPeg is led by Pegasus or someone with good modding skill (maybe Paeng?). The SimPeg organization structure is (from the level, ascending) Leader, Co-Leader, Secretary, Webmaster, Admin, and Moderator. Co-Leader is needed when the Leader is not in working condition or the Leader leaves from the community. Secretaries are for writing what happened on the community, what the community needed, and more. Moderators aren't splited to 2 parts. SimPeg staff member is same as before, but with some tweaks. Our missions are:
      Making a quality mods Host many of quality CJs Make researches about SimCity 4 and community Make innovation about SimCity 4 And our visions are:
      As the world's biggest SimCity 4 mod creator As the biggest CJ hosting As the biggest SimCity 4 contributor Mod We Want Make
      As a quality modder, we want make many quality mods. But for now, we just want to making the new SPAM that compatible with the CAM, new CDK that uses more modular architecture, and new Utopian BATs (I personally like the SkyFarm).
      Challenge
      I am not a modder. And, I not a senior SimCity player. So, I can't be the SimPeg leader or co-leader. However, there is solution. Either as a member but plan the SimPeg or as a staff member on the SimPeg. You can decide. I'm not hunt the rank. I just want contribute. The experience can't be fully restored. By this, we need creating the new experience that more better than before. The SimPeg is around 10 years old. By this, we need create a new logo. However, my laptop currently not available, so there are 2 options: use the old logo or make the new logo, but created by someone Sorry if I breaking the rules. Sorry if I can't explain more detail. Thank you for your attention.

      Sorry if I breaking the rules and sorry if the board is incorrect.
      Hello everyone,
      As far as we know, SimPeg was shutted down in 2015. The cause of shutdown is a big website error and data corruption (this is made the error can't fixed). And now, SimPeg name is filled with other site. In Indonesia where I live, SimPeg is resulting to 'sistem kepegawaian' or in English, employee system, that is used by various institutions, including education institutions. The popular site, regardless of country, should rank first in the search. You can see the screenshot in the attachment.
      Don't forget, the world sometimes not unique. And, I say thank you.
