What is the Simlympics?
The Simlympics is a Sim City 4 version of the Olympics. Just like the Olympics, cities bid to host the Simlympics and nations all across the world compete during the Simlympics to win medals. Simple, right?
Tell me more about Bidding...
Bidding is the first stage in the Simlympics, if there are no bids, there is no host and if there is no host there is no Simlympics. A couple of months before the Simlympics takes place, bidding opens and cities are invited to bid for the chance of hosting the Simlympics. Then at a later date, bidding closes and the ISC (International Simlympic Committee) votes for which bid they think is the best. The winning bid then becomes the host of the next Simlympics! At the moment bidding is currently closed as we're focused on the August Simlympics, for more information please see the August Simlympics thread at ST or visit our forums. However, you're welcome to post in the possible future bids section of our forums here or in this thread. The next Simlympics will be taking place sometime this winter.
Tell me more about Competing...
Any SC4 city or nation is free to compete in the Simlympics; and it's really easy to sign up. All you need to do is post here using the template below, fill in the form on our website or post on our forums. Username - CJ/Nation/City Name - Link to CJ - Union/Geographical Alliance - (Either; North America, Eurasia/Africa, SCJU, Adrian Union, IPON or COFR) All of the cities/nations then compete during the Simlympics in 50 sports (List can be viewed here) over a period of two weeks.
Tell me anything else I may find interesting...
ParaSimlympics Accompanying the Simlympics is the ParaSimlympics, the ParaSimlympics consist of four sports: Wheelchair Athletics, Goalball, Swimming and Boccia. The ParaSimlympics gives disabled Sims an opportunity to participate in the Simlympics as well as providing a unique set of sports for the spectators to watch. ISC Sessions The ISC meet a month or so before the Simlympics begins to vote on which bid should be the host of the next Simlympics. This session takes place somewhere in the Sim World, and your city could be that place. If you're interested in hosting an ISC session please click here.
The next Simlympics will be taking place in August, hosted by Penthesili. We have a seperate thread for the August Simlympics which can be seen here. Thanks, and any questions just post and someone will get back to you .
