  1. I promise that when I return to active playing, upgrading and expanding the Barsoom Project will be my very first priority
  2. Hate to be the cynical one, but we are not a family of humanity, and those suicide attacks can prove it. Or, at least, we are not yet a family of humanity. A united mankind can do much more and can be way more beneficial for everybody that a separated one. We all face the same problems and challenges, such as poverty and global warming, and we should work together, while building communication and cultural bridges between us. I want to say more, but I don't want to derail the topic. Rational thinking doesn't require you to put aside your believes, study the situation objectively, and take the big picture, while having as many facts and data at your disposal as possible? How it's possible to still have a messed up world view?
  3. You're the man for playing SimMars. It's just sad that no further development has been going on since 2010, although you can find some extra buildings made for SimMars here in STEX.
  4. Rest in peace, Jacque Fresco (1916 - 2017), and thanks for everything.

  5. Jacque Fresco, the founder of The Venus Project, a strong advocate of a Resource Based Economy, and one of the most inspiring persons in our days, died peacefully on the morning of May 18, at 101 years of age. He was a man of science and rationality, who dedicated his life to find the best approach possible to solve all of our problems, like the need of wars and poverty, and redesign our culture, this time based not on money and greed, but on what makes us human, like curiosity and kindness. When the world was losing the hope for something better, Jacque gave us something better than hope. The blueprints to build the better we all need and deserve. "Every action and decision we take - or don't - ripples into the future. For the first time we have the capability, the technology, and the knowledge to direct these ripples." "If you want a better world, you have to work towards it. If you do nothing, nothing will happen."
  6. Banned for violent actions against innocent people on rail tracks.
  7. You know what? I've had enough with this crap. My depression can go burn in the deepest pit of Hell!

      Didn't want to hit the like button on this message without saying as well ... take care of yourself and people do care about you  :thumb:

      Depression is an underhanded illness. Like you go to the cinema to watch a comedy. And you say to yourself: Come on, let's have some fun - burn in hell, dark thoughts. Instead you cry. And your friends asking: "but why you are crying - this is funny?" And you even can't answer this question - you don't know about 'why', the reason.

      I think it was Winston Churchill, who called his depression 'the black dog'. As if a dark animal is eating you from the inside.

      And this is an illness and needs a doctors help like toothache. No cinema, no friends, no forum or computer games will help.

      Depression is not pleasant, its a condition that may be considered not of one's own choice, but if given a negative, the challenge of becoming stronger without increasing the negative is the pursuit of true healing.

  8. paradox

    It seems that Developer Haemimont Games, the creators of Tropico 3-5, teams up with Paradox Interactive to make their own version of SimMars
  9. OK, just the idea of a city journal about colonization of the Moon is epic by itself and I can't wait to see the rest I think you may want to add this building in your colony as well
  10. "You may say, it is impossible for a man to become like the Machine. And I would reply, that only the smallest mind strives to comprehend its limits." - Fabricator General Kane.
  11. Glad to see this cool guy back
  12. If the NAM team prefer its current logo, you should respect their decision. But if you like making new designs so much, why not making new textures for roads and other transit systems and show them to the NAM team, or making a dependency set of textures for new lots, or making textures for cars and other automata?
  13. A map made by pen tool? Interesting concept. I think you should develop it even more, in order to make even better maps
  14. The science known as SETI deals with searching for messages from aliens. METI science deals with the creation of messages to aliens. Thus, SETI and METI proponents have quite different perspectives... In contrast to Active SETI, METI pursues not a local and lucrative impulse, but a more global and unselfish one – to overcome the Great Silence in the Universe, bringing to our extraterrestrial neighbors the long-expected annunciation "You are not alone!" — Alexander Zaitsev, regarding the difference between SETI and METI (Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence)
  15. Can we have some screenshots of your maps, please?
