      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

The criteria we used was to put the still available files (in February 2017) that were initially submitted on 2016, maybe something you did isn't currently available or was initially posted at the end of 2015?

Hm, hope this isn't arrogant as you did all the work and me only reading - but you mentioned me with 'mass tourism' and some other small stuff - which was the work of a few hours and skipped the 'big paeng theory' which was the work of more than a year. Don't want to complain - it's more that I'm surprised about my own feelings atm. I feel aggrieved like an actor who's acting in a leading role in a serious film is ignored but his 3 seconds apearance in a comedy gets applause.  As you say, you list the "notabale" stuff, not the 'funny' or 'nice' stuff or 'usefull' stuff. And I think a set of 78 lots could fit this adjective, even if it fails fitting many other adjectives - even if nobody likes it - the work itself couldn't it be regarded as notable in some sense?

Suddenly my feelings turn things into being serious where my mind says, I shouldn't take it that serious. And I hate this state of feelings and mind quarreling. And that's why I had to post. Now, as I said, I'm aggrieved - it feels much better. :ninja:

The only thing I can say on our defense is that we did the list on very inconvenient hours (p.e. 3 to 5 AM); indeed, I feel sleep more than once over the keyboard, to only wake back knowing nothing about where in the list I was.

To have missed the big paeng theory is certainly a big omission, but at least this comments will make it even more visible than a place on the list.

Yeah, not to mention we worked on this list among three people and had serious trouble getting it to post at all because it is very long and full of tags, which the board software didn't seem to like...

So if you find something is missing, just let us know. We are human after all. We make mistakes. Get 200 right, you may still get a handul wrong. :lost:

      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?

      There was a time uploads on the STEX were rated simply with 1 -5 stars and without a written comment and nobody did know - why someone only rated something 3 stars.
      Now you need to give a comment. And I thought this comment is to explain the rate you give. F.e. if someone uploads a yellow house and you don't like the color yellow - you give 3 stars and and write: this house is yellow and i don't like it yellow, blue it would be much better (as you could before without telling your motivation).
      So now other users will see - Ah, that's the reason fantozzi rated this 3 stars, but me, I love the colour yellow, so why should I care about fantozzis rating?
      As me, being objective, I can try, but it's almost impossible, as I'm not almighty in my knowledge and capabilities and on judging content I'm not always 'right' in the sense of public opinion or the opinion of everyone and therefore my opinion might be 'strange' to others. That's a result of me being a subject, an individual, I think. I can fail. Even on opinion or judging. So I can't always do right to everybody.
      Now I see subjective ratings on uploads will be deleted.
      So objective criteria is needed - criteria that can be applied on all ratings the same way and exclude subjective judgements like about which colour is better for a building.
      Or I won't rate anymore anything here - as beeing attacked by moderators just for stating my subjective (and maybe wrong - in a public view) opinion, I don't like this.
      So please tell me what I am allowed to say and what not when rating.
