      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

    An Interview With Swat-Medic

    An Interview with Swat-Medic

    Author: MOTM Committee

    When did you join Simtropolis?

    I joined in early 2007.

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    I was fed up with SimCity.com's horrible exchange!

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?

    Not really! I always thought other members had a waaay better reason than I. Though I had my suspicions recently >.>

    Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?

    I suppose it is because of a culmination of things, but my recent work on the transition from 5.0 to 6.0 probably tipped the bucket. 3.gif

    Will winning the MOTM inspire you to do more for the community?

    Deffinetely! I really do enjoy helping out anyone I can, and I really enjoy the members at Simtropolis.

    What do you do outside of Sim City 4 and Simtropolis in your free time?

    A number of things. I run track for my highschool, I enjoy biking (Both offroad and, well, regular 3.gif2.gif, I looove to ski, cross country and downhill.. I enjoy making ameteur movies with my friends, and playing my favorite instrument.. The Drumbs. 9.gif

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    Oh, deffinetely the chat! Earlier this week DuskTrooper, Tarkus, Dirk, and a number of other legends were all in the chat at the same time!

    Other times, when boggy is around.. Well it's just fun to poke him.

    I also loved the chat record breaking attempt.. That was pure awesome.

    Oh, and the trivia.. Oh what fun the trivia is. My most favorite moment is.. When boggy tried to turn me back into a regular user, he used his magic powers on himself, instead of me. Classic.

    Do you have a job?

    If you want to call it that, yes. I make telecasts of highschool events, like football games, basketball games, plays etc. and air them on my city's local cabel tv channel.

    If you were stuck on a deserted island with one Simtropolis member, who would it be?

    That's a hard one. It would have to be boggy1, he's such a character.

    What has been your main contributions to the site?

    Mostly the Omnibus/Simtropolis Help Squad.

    Do you have anything else that you would like to share with us?

    I'd just like to thank everyone who helps maintain the site, who contributes to the STEX, and all of those users who help everyone else just because. Simtropolis is truely a wonderful site, we're all lucky to have it.

    Thanks, Swat and congratulations on your award!
