      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 Hamish


    When did you join Simtropolis?

    I joined three years ago, on the 6th of September.

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    Like most people I wanted to find some downloads for simcity. Fortunately the mac serial codes don't work on the EA site. So I had to find another place to download from. The first site I came across was Simtropolis. I've been here ever since.

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?

    No, I never expected to win the MOTM award.

    Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?

    Well, the award says that it was for being a kind helping hand to new members in the mac forums. So I assume it is for the help that I give fellow mac users in the Mac forums.

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

    Yes, it will inspire me to do more for the community. I just have to figure out what that will be...

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

    I like spending time with my friends just chilling out doing almost nothing. I also like to play the sport Cricket on a Saturday in the summer and I also enjoy watching the "Chiefs" or the "Waikato Rugby Team" playing rugby in the winter.

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    Times like these basically, But mainly all the random and funny moments that sometimes arise while browsing these forums.

    Do you have a job?

    Currently I am enjoying a nice, peaceful period of un-employment.

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

    Do I have to pick?

    If anyone here has ever survived being stuck on a deserted island I'll take them.

    What has been your main contributions to the site?

    I think it would be the help that I have given to numerous people over the few years that I have been here, and I have also made a few maps for the STEX.

    Is there anything else you would like to share with us?

    No, that's about it. But I would just like to take the opportunity to say thank you to the people that nominated me for the MOTM award.
