      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

It's hard work being a one-man band, I am impressed that Anselm has persevered with this project for so long. I'm glad he's going to be releasing an alpha version in three months time.

It is good to get some feedback here since I don't follow the reddit feed.  Thanks.

I'm really happy for Anselm! (I prefer spell with z because it reminds me of AzemOcram but names are self-identity so I will spell properly)

I love seeing his progress and growth (CityBound and personal).

However, I want to clear up any confusion: I do NOT want to try Alpha 1 or 2. I want to start playing and modding at Alpha 3--when a more complex economy (what I presume his early version looked like with some additions (hopefully utilities and basic government/civic/emergency services) in the new environment) is implemented. I want to contribute to the first project to add logging, mining, drilling, quarrying, fishing, and growing/farming raw materials for industry (and their products).

Good luck to all who choose Alpha tests.  Please remember that this carries considerable responsibility to report every frog and lump you fall across in some detail.  I am really not interested in test versions at all, but will consider a release candidate.

      Please see attached.  I am using NAM 35 and CAM 2.1.
      (1)  Do I need to place a parking garage near terminal bus stops?
      (2)  How do I know what my parking garage is doing?
      (3)  How do I know what my buses are doing in terms of performance?

      What does the last one above mean?
      618 car trips, 63 bus trips, and 41 truck trips in a 24 hour window?
      Skylines will tell me how full my buses are with 30 being the number of seats.  Also, it will tell me car trips saved.
