      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 RippleJet


    When did you join Simtropolis?

    January 7th, 2004

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    I bought SC4 (for myself) for xmas 2003 and must have stumbled across Simtropolis soon after that.

    Did you ever expect to win the MOTM?


    Why did you think you were nominated for the MOTM?

    Maybe I helped one too many...

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

    Frankly, not really.

    The best inspiration is the feedback from those I've helped and from those using my mods, and today from the members of BSC who encourage me more than anybody else.

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

    Besides modding, helping (and sometimes playing), I enjoy travelling, golfing, bowling and having fun with my kids.

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    BarbyW's invitation to join the BSC in february this year.

    Do you have a job?

    I'm a naval architect dealing mostly with stability of ships, making sure they stay upright both when damaged and undamaged in severe weather conditions.

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

    The best friend I had at Simtropolis was Tolomar/Indisguise, but unfortunately she is no longer a member...

    What has been your main contributions to the site?

    I shouldn't be the one telling that...

    I guess the tutorial on how to correct landmarks growing on empty lots has been well received.

    Of the mods I've made so far, I think version 2 of RalphaelNinja's Census Repository Facility is my personal favourite.

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