Please help us for June & July 06/20/2017This 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

In a virtual world, the hardest test for any builder is to realistically recreate a location
Season 3 - Challenge #08 - Monthly (45 days)
City builders value their ability to create realistic images, but how realistic are these scenes? With the improvements BATers and modders have made to the game, and how realistic their creations are, can our builders create scenes which are indistinguishable from real life?
We want you to submit an image based off of a real world location. Create this image so that it is as realistic as possible, and include a link to the real world site, or an image which you based this location off. Remembering that real life is not as clean and shiny as it is in our imagination, it's dirty, irregular and exciting!
The winner was the top ranked image after the voting period, with the final rank determined by the ranking system.
In this Monthly challenge, rep prizes were given for the top 5 placed entries, along with points for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.
