I'm 27 and from Belfast in Northern Ireland and work as an Oracle developer. I've always been hooked on the Sim City games ever since it first came out on my old beloved Spectrum and I bet most of you have no idea what it looked like in ye olden days! We're talking about 15 years ago here! If you think that it runs slowly on a P4 1.8 with 512MB RAM and a 128MB graphics card, just remember that it ran on a machine with 48KB of RAM and it ran like a dream! I was having a bit of trouble with this game until finding this site, now my cities are growing steadily.
