      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 Dasilva, From Monte Cristo


    Today we'll be talking with Phillipe Dasilva, Member Of The Month September, 2007, and head of the Monte Cristo Internet Operations. Hey there, Phillipe! Welcome to your third interview on SimTropolis.com How are you today?

    Well, I'm allright. Actually, very busy polishing the website making sure that everything works properly and content is translated but very happy to get it almost finished.

    Did you join SimTropolis after or before Dirk contacted you about clearing your statement up to the community?

    I am an old timer of Simtropolis. I did never post in the forums but I used the STEX a few times in the past. If I remember well, I'm a member of the Simtropolis community since 2004 but I rather keep my other nickname secret so that I can log in as a standard community member

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?

    Not at all, I'm not involved in here to get any reward unless the one to see other city builder fans satisfied with a game I'm currently working in. I rather take that as a team reward than personal, if there wasn't the entire CU team behind, I wouldn't have receive it: Thanks guys!

    We all know that you're representing the Monte Cristo team on SimTropolis, more specifically the game Cities Unlimited, but exclusive interviews with Dirk aren't everything. Right now we're talking Simtropolis community. Why do you think you were nominated for the award?

    I actually think that I don't deserve it. I'm just talking to the community as I think we should. I think this reward belongs to the whole community members who spent some of their time writing great posts in the CU threads and sharing their thoughts about what they would like to see: they are the ones really participating, I'm only pushing them to do so.

    What are your favorite SimTropolis moments?

    I have two:

    The first one was the when I downloaded my first custom region and bat from the STEX and played with it.

    The second was when I've been contacted by Dirk in June for the first Q&A about Cities Unlimited: if someone would told me a few months ago that I would have the opportunity to be involved in such a great game project and talking about it with you all, I wouldn't believe it.

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

    I would hate to be stuck on a desert island! How would I play Cities Unlimited or browse the web talking with others?

    Do you have anything else you'd like to share with us?

    Apart from continuing sharing their thoughts about CU and talk with us on the different features we'll be presenting them, just keep being this smart, creative and fun community! 9.gif

    Thanks for taking the time to have this interview, Phillipe! Congratulations on winning the award.
