      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

    Most of you should know this by now that lots accept a little more than one would expect. You got someone riding your hiney about planting more trees. Plant em in people's yards, industrial lots, parks, etc. This works with both mayoral and god cheat tools. Now go clean up your air.

    This approach works very well with low city detail setting in gfx menu, but not so much on higher gfx quality, then there's no real free space on lots due to props.

    I used to plant trees all the time like this, back when I thought that that advisor's message makes any difference (silly me... :ohyes:)

    Anyway... to me:

    RH + NAM + Industry X4 + Stupid News Filter + Schools & Parks == WIN :party:

    I often use trees from a tree-mod, but only for aestetic purposes.

    It's good because god mode trees are a good alternative to parks and plazas at the beginning of making your own city. If you spam parks and schools and other public services all over your city as if it's code red, your expenses will shoot so high up the roof you'll be in debt before you make any financial progress. (Supposing you want to play without cheating)
