It certainly isn't ST and it certainly is PayPal.

I've checked and it's working for me (Mac, Safari 10.1) so perhaps web browser/Java/cache related. I recreated your situation and once I selected US the page reloaded to give me State and ZIP code options. Does your page reload when you select the US? 

(I also selected the UK and the form changed again for UK specific details)

I am unable to pay for anything because paypal wont let me choose states, I can only choose Canadian provinces. I PMed Dirk about this but it's been a few days, maybe someone else can help. I am unsure if this is a ST problem, paypal problem, or only a problem for me and wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this problem?

Thanks for your intended support of the site.

If it's any help, I was able to retrieve the list of US states (or other country area) by:

  1. First entering the desired Donation amount at the top.
  2. Selecting the Country. The page will then auto-reload (you may need to enter a quick security code).
  3. The correct area list should now be populated, and can be selected. The same also for other country specifics, such as "ZIP Code" vs "Postcode".


Not entering the donation amount seems to prevent the fields from updating. Since it rather counter-intuitively throws an error upon selecting the country, once the page is refreshed. PayPal really ought to improve that, such as by only validating once the form is submitted.


Hopefully this works for you. *:)

If not, I'll inform Dirk via the emergency line.

Hey thanks for all the help. I'm currently having different problems with pay pal and can't try to solve this current problem but I appreciate the responses. If I don't respond just assume my problem is solved. ;) Thanks.

What if you want to donate but do not want to receive any collections gift ?

Thanks for your interest in supporting the site.

I've checked with @Dirktator on this, and can confirm an automatic email will be sent to your address provided after your donation has been processed. If you'd like to opt-out of receiving a STEX disc or digital download, that's completely fine. Please send a quick reply to the email making this known.

Should you not receive said email, I'd recommend sending Dirk a PM here at ST.

Thanks again.

I made a donation through Paypal.  I wasn't sure if I would be charged an exchange rate from CA funds to US funds given that the site is apparently owned in CA and I'm in CA, so I added a bit to make up for any exchange that might be added.  Paypal did also add the exchange, so that's okay, but I was wondering if there is a way to make a donation in CA funds without being charged the exchange?  

I'll have to re-send my reply to the email sent from ST to make sure I specified digital download clearly.  Good to see that ST is now using the HTTPS protocol. I suppose the security encryption also includes any uploaded or downloaded files as well as web pages and text messages?

I'm not the expert in this regard (I'll have to check with Dirk), but I believe Paypal is only setup for the exchange to US Dollars.

No worries, I'll also make Dirk aware of your choice so there's no confusion.

Yes, HTTPS is now enabled sitewide for all pages including file transfers. It really is a much needed addition in this day and age of security.

Saturday morning, rain is hammering on the window, thermometer shows 4°. The family drove for the shopping center (the annual secret "christmas-coming-soon-shopping-tour" where daddy isn't allowed to join) and the dog lies in the basket next to the heating. And there lies a new STEX DVD on the desk, waiting to be put into the drive.

How fortunate I am to know - at least for the next hours - this gonna be a great day.

      Hey guys,
      I am only interested in having the commercial growable of the following download. 
      For the commercial growable to function properly, do I need to have the file McDonalds Props v1? The contents of the file in question are displayed in the attached photo.

      Dear Simtropolis staff.
      On december the 3rd I made a donation 25$ via Paypal (please contact me privately from my account for details)
      I never received any updates from you on my email about it. I wanted also some information about where or when I am going to get a link to download sine STEX stuff ( I still don't wether a link to download or you will send a me a cd, or for my donation I don't have right to anything else, or perhaps nothing.)
      Everything is so confusing.
      Can you contact me to make things clear.
      Many things in advance.
       
      Best regards.

      THE TUDOR CITY COMPLEX, NEW YORK CITY
      Version 2 
      Improvements : roof lights and redesigned "Tudor City" board sign located on Prospect tower. 
       
      HISTORY
      Completed in 1928, it consisted of twelve apartment buildings containing 3,000 housing units and 600 hotel rooms. The design by the architect H. Douglas Ives and his team was based heavily on the Tudor Style, an architectural style prevalent during the Tudor Dynasty. Characteristic for this style is the brickwork and the application of fine intricate stonework.
       
      THE LOTS
      In this pack, you're gonna find 3 of the 12 buildings that compose the whole complex of Tudor City in New York.
      those are the most iconic part of the whole complex : Tudor, Prospect and WIndsor buildings.
       
      For a realistic positioning, make it this order from left to right :
      Tudor Tower, Propect Tower, Windsor Tower. All buildings are 4X2 tiles. Just separate them by one tile. 
       
      Special thanks for the support through the award given in April (sorry i didn't notice i got this recognition).
      Enjoy
      P.

      Do files on the STEX now have to be downloaded with a logged-in account?  No more downloading to quest accounts?

      Hello,
      Security is important. Lots of sites have a security center. Imagine if I am a security researcher/white-hat hacker and I found an exploit. What should I do? Is there a security center? Is it private? Does the community have a good disclosure process?
      Thanks.
