Thank you for the clarification. I think we have a lot of good content out there. Now that people know how to feature it, maybe we can see a but more of it.

  • Yes, thanks for pointing that out, Benedict. It is under the "Omnibus" tab in the Pin icon if you were looking.

    Also, it will soon appear as a drop-down menu when you hover over the "Simtropolis.com" home tab.

    or just go here

    I hope we get many suggestions. I think this feature is under utilized because people don't understand it. Hopefully, this thread clears things up.

    What's considered a "Feature"?

    Anything that has to do with Simtropolis or SimCity.

    Including stuff on the STEX.

    Remember...

    It has to have a great image, to be considered worthy by the Dirktator!

    If you are submitting someone else's stuff be sure to fill in the original author in the attribution field.

    What if some members have content or cities from Cities XL they would like to feature, this is also allowed correct?

        To whom it concerns,
        This post is meant as a a big ‘ Thank You!’ .
        Although I’m not a community man, I visit simtropolis a lot. Since a few months I have a new computer and I just copied the files from my old tot the new one.
        But now I have more possibilities and because the game crashes some times with my new settings, I decided to install everything from zero.
        C.P.’s terrainmod Meadowshire is installed, the seasonal trees from Girafe, a watermod from Peg, the NAM, Spam and several addons, so I am on my way.
        But when I am doing this, I  realize that this game woudn’t be anywhere, without all this cool things.
        So, Thank You! Just wanna say thank you to all the people who made/ make this game so much fun.
        Thanks!!

        Hello,
        I was making Omnibus articles, especially about SimCity 4 but due to lack of popularity, my articles are shown in the bottom. This behavior beats one of important things in wiki: all posts must be accessed equally and easily. This makes my articles difficult to access.
        To fix this, we should change our wiki system similar to Wikipedia, using MediaWiki. Using MediaWiki also provides functionality to edit and even request deletion, some of important things in information democracy. Yes, Simtropolis isn't full democracy but in case of not-maintained articles, those point are important. For those asking about staffing, the wiki is administered by the same community staffs plus staffs dedicated to maintaining the wiki (similar to STEX). Even better, we could use the Stack Exchange style of staffing: as the reputation grows, appropriate moderation and even admin features are given. In case of power abuse, the member are given right to give bad reputation points. The rep points is available in small amount and replenished each day to prevent abuses. Again, if there are abuses, member can give bad rep.
        The choice of staffing system is back to the community itself. But, I can help you to setup the wiki and creating initial contents.
        Thanks.

        Hello,
        We have ideas for city simulation games but we don't have places to discuss and show off aside from forums. While this is working well, it can slows down consensus-based decision making. For instance, the SimCity 4's plugin redistribution problems remain unfixed completely due to lack of proper consensus among file exchanges. These problems are preventing the bigger challenges to be solved including the heavily-discussed better plugin downloading system.
        The Citysim Conference attempts to making the ideas into reality by grouping citysim community figures (game makers, modders etc) into one physical places. This year's Citysim Conf addresses open-source city simulators and SC4's plugin redistribution and downloading systems. For the place, we want to be accessible by everyone, especially Asian figures (who accounts for awesome mods). This will be decided by consensus. The time for the conf is around May 15, 2018. For who are asking for logo, preparations and other media, we want the figures who competent in the field to make it well (logo can be made by @Ganaram Inukshuk etc).
        Share your own replies (opinions included). Replies are respected. Thank you for your attention.

        Hello,
        February 2016 is my month to join a Minecraft server, Azalel Nation. Yes, it's an Indonesian server with good uptime (~90%). In my first days, players are nice and friendly to me. But, after I give some gameplay advices, some players becoming hate to me. It sounds crazy but it isn't all true, because I almost spam (but I never committed spam intentionally) the chat. This is becoming stronger as I'm applying as a helper in the server. Yes, unlike Simtropolis etc, they are "democratic" so recruit players using an application (the reason I quoted democratic because they don't have voting, they only selected by the owner/co-owner with some opinions and considerations). And, my first app is failed due to some reasons:
        I don't have vision to be a staff My behavior is commented by others My "flying time" (active time) is little Bad time management I'm not giving up. But, because I'm had childish behavior (some of this is remained in this day) or the community nature, I am becoming kind of angry when criticized by one of the staff, @SiKece (this may not a valid mention in Simtropolis) and created a topic called Pertimbangan Kembali (Reconsideration) around the site recovery (the site hacked in August 2016 and Sladey becoming webmaster to switch to new instance). The topic becoming hot and locked by the webmaster (@Sladey) After that, I created another topic named Disclaimer. Of course, the topic is created to disclaim staff opinions. Again, the topic becoming hot and staffs giving their opinions. The topic is closed again by @SiKece. But, I don't give up, again. In late 2016, I created a new application with updated info but it's blacklisted without any reason, maybe due to my topics. Again, I created a new app on December 2016, but it's rejected due to my staff app blacklist. In the end, I had given trial as a helper by @Silver750 (co-owner) for 30 days. But, due to reasons, my trial is failed. I created a new app but rejected due to "after the trial". After that, I becoming hated and I becoming disturbed by them, for instance, my avatar is vandalized by a member. So, in late 2017, I'm considered to change my active ID to other but rejected. After that, I'm fled from the community to ST and SC4D. Of course, my situation becoming better. I experienced (till this day) a good and not childish staff.
        Lessons: don't give unnecessary advices, better to be efficient but transparent, good time management and recommended to not use your real avatar on forums, especially undemocratic ones.
        You can access my profile for proofs. Don't forget to be translated by Google Translate or Indonesian forum users.
        Thanks.
