      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

Hi it's about time I introduced myself

6 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone! 

I have been a member here for a number of years but I never formally introduced myself to community, I'd like to meet members here! 

I am currently in college studying Sociology and just recently turned 21! I have been an avid Simcity player for many years, from 3000 to 4. Never really tried batting, looked way too complicated and difficult for my taste, but I did make some models for google earth when that was a thing. My style of city building ranges from classic american towns to realistic American cities with many rowhomes and old buildings mixed with new. I have one small city journal which was never finished and made occasional forum post, but otherwise I'm unknown lol. 

I'd like to know what is your playing style in any of the simcity games?

Thanks for reading,

I like farm style regions modeled after central and southern Indiana. I also got side tracked for a few months developing an alternative map making method. Then I investigated all the rock, water, terrain, and beach mods.

Unfortunately, my city journal can't be finished because I had to reinstall game like a year ago so lost it all *:(. But I may build a new one in the near future!

Welcome back to the community and forums! *:8)

This 'game' really is timeless because it's based on principles which apply to society. And being into any of the social sciences, there's nothing better than a pursuing a hobby which complements your studies. Or maybe it works the other way around. *;)

      What has happened to the community of Simtropolis? I've been playing for many years but I've never been able to properly introduce myself, but when I come back to see what I have missed I'm astonished, it seems to have been quiet.
      I'm making my return, so I hope to upload some SimCity 4 content, but I don't know any timeframes.

      Hey, everyone!
      I'm Bini and long time simmer, though, completely new to The Simcity franchise. I recently installed The Simcity Complete Edition and I'm really enjoying it so far. I tend to do most of my gameplay offline but I have joined a couple regions online. You can checkout my profile if you have any interest in finding me.
      So quickly, I'm in my 30's - married and a parent - and been an avid simmer for many years but with The Sims. I hope this is the place to get some helpful insight and advice for my Simcity adventures. I'll be posting about. Cheers x.

      Recently there was a change in my interests, now i kinda like simcity 4 a lot, thats the only game im playing rite now. Im actually a big fan of skylines and high-rise buildings. That was kind of a goal for me whenever i create a new city in sc4.
      But I never really got a high-rise until this new city which i made was fully filled with high-rises but i made a new area and downloaded tons of BATs from STEX and then added to my city and made it the downtown area. Just Because the nightlightings are cool.

      I Made this Journal abt my favorite city and all the things that are happening in it.
