      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.

Stadium Building Game? - Can We Make One?

7 posts in this topic

Hey everybody..

Just wanted to float an idea that I have been brainstorming for a while..   It's a Stadium building game-  As far as I know, nobody has ever done one.

With the popularity of Football/Soccer/Baseball even Cricket and Rugby-  Why is it you don't think there has ever been a stadium building / stadium management game created?

The stadium would start as just a field, with some temporary bleachers..  Players could add concessions, sideline advertising, more bleachers etc.

 

Bad management would lead to lower attendance (too many/too few concessions, restrooms in bad locations/ limited/ too many (cost over runs) .

 

Aspects of the fan experience, such as comfort (add enough extra seatbacks if demand requires it, eventually Luge seating, and private boxes, that go all the way to VIP would be very expensive to construct, but good for high end donors)

Video boards/ audio equipment should be an element to "entertain" the fans..

 

Of course, a good stadium layout, combined with good stadium flow (enough vomitoriums) and not too far a distance between rows and an exit/pathway should be considered, as well as line-of sight.

Furthermore, building some sort of roofing for stadium might also be in consideration, increasing attendance vs. very hot/sunny, or rainy game days..

 

Simulated Game days would be a net gain/loss in total budget..

Parking/ shuttle services/ tailgating areas..

 

Creating very unique/interesting/ exciting stadiums of various types, all centered around the original field built would be very fun for most sports fans..

 

Why hasn't this been done yet?  Anybody with a programming background interested in getting this going with me?

 

It seems like an obvious game to make.. and a very fun one, slowly building the stadium from a prep/high school/ club level all the way to the biggest stadiums at the top levels?

 

This could be a great game.

What would be the challenge?

How would you build the stadium?

I imagine something similar to Prison Architect, with "waves" of fans, agressive hooligans and a very detailed simulation.

Pretty much..  It would be a 3d sim.. where bleachers are attached to pathways that lead to everything else..  You could buy cheap aluminum bleachers up to a certain height, and then would have to buy concrete bleachers after that, the cost getting higher and higher as they get taller.. all the cost would exponentially increase as you grew up.

Bleacher/cement sections to build the stadium, ammenities, bathrooms, concessions stands, etc..  Parking.. ramps to get into the stadium etc..

This could be a lot of fun.. guess you're not a Stadium guy BO?

I think it could be successful, but I'm not really interested in stadiums ;)

That is a really cool idea, There are so many yearly sports games, Fifia, NBA 2k, MLB the show and Madden come to mind, But you never get to build a stadium to play in.

I'd love to see that opportunity arise some day.

It's just, you need a challenge for a game to be fun. Or barring that lots and lots of freedom. Stadiums are very niche, there simply isn't -that- much you can do, so if you want to make such a game right you really have to pack it with stuff, and well it's not that it can't work, Prison Architect is quite nice, but it would need to appeal to more than just those who want to pain a stadium. :>

In my opinion it could work tied with some football/rugby/whatever management game, even to the point of having "home advantage" perks the better your stadium is, and as a team having to deal with hooligans etc. but I don't know if merely building a stadium would work just on its own. Maybe, if it's really a stadium themed management game, with emphasis on management on top of the actual building.

Hi eveyone! Do anyone of has played Acheter Pokemon Soleil? My friend suggested me for Acheter Pokemon Soleil, which had great graphical capability, processing power, and quite the fan base navigate here for more gaming consoles which are given a new dimension to the video games. The great thing about it is that anyone who is interested, can just actually go and play it as long as he has a video game console of course the Xbox 360 allows users to stream media from local PCs.

      I have an issue at random times where when I save my city, it seems to take forever, except it did not. What happens is when I save my city, the dialog box that tells me that it was saved is invisible, hidden, or is behind the city itself. I cannot see the "city saved" box and at this point, the only thing I can do is just click everywhere on the screen of my game until I happen to click where the hidden dialog box is. This can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes to find this invisible dialog box. This gets annoying.
       
      Does anybody else have this problem?
       
      I have had this problem since the day I first started playing SimCity 4 in 2006 and it happens randomly since then. SC4Fix doesn't correct this issue apparently as well as a few other issues.
