  1. Interview Karoliina Korppoo, lead designer of Cities: Skylines. Read the full interview at the source.
  2. Over the past weeks, we've received several suggestions on expanding our donation methods. Some suggestions just aren't too viable for us, but several people have suggested bitcoins. The question is, we're not sure how many of you guys use bitcoin who visit here and if you did, would it be something you would use to donate? So we're tossing the question out to you. Let us know if you have other suggestions. Thanks! (This poll topic will close on May 9, 2017)
  3. Thanks for the feedback again, everyone. Some interesting suggestions! I think it's worth mentioning that, since we will be retiring the old Chat before May, a new Chat has the potential to offer more features and engagement than the old Chat ever did, so it's also a new opportunity and there may very well be new ways the chat could be used, so it's worth keeping an open mind. I realize, I should have added an "Indifferent" option... Again, just a reminder this is not a referendum, the Admins will settle on a final decision.
  4. Effective May 1, 2017, our Chat feature, currently powered by IP.Board (InvisionPower), will end. IPB have decided that they will no longer provide Chat as part of the community software. So, my question to the community is: Do you want to keep some type of Chat system on the site? There are chat systems out there that do support IP.Board, and these will be the systems that we will consider closely. Naturally, these also come with a cost, so if we do want to have a chat system, the caveat is that we will need your help to raise some additional funds to purchase a new chat system (usually one-time cost). Please feel free to weigh in, share your thoughts, ideas, suggestions or recommendations! Please note that this poll is for us to get a sense of the community's sentiment on the issue, and is not a "referendum", the Admins will have a final decision on the matter, taking into consideration your feedback. Thanks!
  5. Saw the donate message. Tossed you a[n expensive] coffee. I don't usually donate, but you're pushing the message hard and I figure I can at least spare that. Thanks for keeping the site going!

      I've got all the STEX discs except for No. 5 and I'm hoping if I have any money left over from the Xmas shopping to get it as a present for myself ... no guarantee's tho

  6. We're aware of a "New Topic" bug resulting in an error. We're trying to track it down!

  7. Hi sir. I'm having a problem with Udon Mod. the cars usually didn't follow the one way. the one way becomes a 2 way just like a normal road. lol. any suggestions on making this work?

  8. hi dirk, can you tell me if the dependancies are in with the pluggins that are on the stex dvds, and does the three pack apply to just simcity 4 or are certain dvd specific to certain games. i have simcity 4 deluxe

  9. Your initial reactions to the newly announced Snowfall DLC!
  10. I want to convey the cities from one account to another account ...


  11. In Snowfall, the difficulty heats up when the city cools down, thanks to a new in-game temperature reading that will have residents bundling up for warmth when the weather outside is frightful. Cosmetic weather, composed of rain and fog, will be added to Cities: Skylines as part of a free update, along with other features to be announced soon. Players who own Snowfall will get to face new challenges such as ensuring that their city infrastructure can handle seasonal heating demands – and, when the snow starts falling, that the roads can stay clear. New snowplow services will be required to prevent traffic from freezing in place, while new all-weather trams and expanded public transit options can help residents and visitors alike get around town – and visit the new winter parks and landmarks available in Snowfall. Snowfall will include: Now is the Winter of This Content: Rain and fog for existing maps, plus a new “Winter” map theme with snow and all of its challenges The Streetcars You Desire: Expanded public transportation options, including easier management of existing lines – and Trams, a new system demanded by fans World Warmth, Too: Cold weather increases demands for electricity, unless new water-based heat systems are in place Plowers to the People: Build a snowplow depot to keep traffic flowing during winter weather, and employ new road maintenance systems to keep your streets in shape New Chirps: #yeahthereare
  12. The ratings seeemd to have busted with the latest updates, we're testing to see what the issue is and to fix it!
  13. Of course I will help support the simtropolis community.

    I would also like to get any info regarding mods/updates that can allow my Sim City 4 to make better use of my dual graphics cards.

    And finally -- When will be able to get new sim city graphics, 3d assets, etc to also have the joy of region editor like Sim City 4?

    Please pass along -- I will and may others will be happy to support that!

  14. bugs

    These are simtropolis specific customization and will be restored soon, we had to work out a few other issues first. This is now fixed! You may need to force-refresh your browser or clear your cache. News articles are temporarily on the home page sidebar. We need to update some templates to have them show on the home page like they did before (I just haven't found time yet but I'll get to it!) Will add this back in shortly. Seems to be a bug, still working on it. This has been Fixed! Again, a force refresh may be necessary. (CTRL-F5 usually) Theme restoration is in progress! These are "news submissions" and "feature submission" but they should be better identified! Working with my admins through these, we'll get it straightened out!

    CB is correct above. Also, the STEX ratings are still in the process of being converted -- stand by.
