      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

    Interview with Brenda_X


    MOTM_inbox

    Welcome, Brenda. How are you today?

    Hi! I'm very good today thank you.

    When did you join Simtropolis?

    I believe it was back in 2003.

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    I bought SC4 Deluxe Edition and after playing it for a while I was wondering if there was anything I could add to my game. To my surprise I found a lot of custom content here in Simtropolis. I joined the site and spent many evenings downloading several buildings. If I remember correctly back then the BAT wasn't available, so most buildings were a mix of Maxis buildings.

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?

    No, I honestly didn't expect to win this award. But I'm happy I did **smiles**

    Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?

    I believe it is because a lot of people like my modern stations and buses.

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

    Yes!!

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

    I actually like to do many things; crafts, reading, hiking, watch movies, etc.

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    I remember the first time I uploaded one of my stations to the STEX. I didn't expect people to like it as much as they did. Seeing that people loved my work inspired me to continue making more SC4 things.

    Another great moment was when I became part of NDEX.

    And of course winning this award is already one of my favorite moments here in Simtropolis **smiles**

    Do you have a job?

    I work as a web designer and I'm planning on going back to school to study architectural design and yes, SC inspired me partly to study that and also because I just love making things =P

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

    I would choose any of the modders. If they can make something like the NAM then they would find a way to get us off the island or make it more hospitable.

    What has been your main contributions to the site?

    Modern Monorail Station, Modern El-Train Station, Modern NTA Buses, Modern GLR Station and my Modern Subway-Bus sets.

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

    Thank you all! ST is an awesome community!!!
