Is it just me that simtropolis is taking ages to load any page? I mean I tagged this post for "simtropolis challenges" because I achieved a challenge being able to post a topic Maybe the site is haunted since it is Halloween.
Besides, am I the only who gets this issue regularly that when I start a new topic, there is no field available for typing?
Anyway, just wanted to know if I'm the only one having this issue. Oh, and happy new year by the way because due to this issue, I expect my topic will be posted by new year's eve

Hiya! We're so glad you dropped in to see us.
Simtropolis is primarily a site for people who love City Building games. We have major forums for SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, and SimCity (2013) as well as a few others in the gamer topics. Our members are friendly, courteous, and helpful and range in skill levels from beginners to technical gurus. The forums are where we discuss all manner of city building ideas. Whether you are a player or a custom content creator (or both) we have places ideally suited for your needs. If you haven't signed up yet to be a member, how about dropping by our New Member Registration Page?
We also have the SimTropolis EXchange which is our files section containing (literally) thousands of files to improve on the basic games. These include bug fixes, maps, textures to change the terrain-related aspects, lots, buildings, props, game altering mods, and more. These are available for download by members and guests alike. (However, members are not presented with any ads.)
Now, of course, we do have some easy to abide by rules you'll want to read in the Site Guidelines and for custom content creators and users in the STEX Code of Conduct. Be sure to check those out because they apply in full force to everyone here whether you read them or not.
Ok. Have you registered yet?
Great! Now that you are a member you can Introduce Yourself Here.
And here's how I've laid out the rest of this introductory thread:
Basics of Using the Forum Software Overview of the Forums Overview of the STEX Overview of the Omnibus You can click those links above or just scroll down as each one is in its own separate post in this thread.
Also, if you have any issue come up which you feel is best discussed in private, feel free to send a Private Message to one of our Staff Members. Tip: Look over on the right side of that page to see which of us has been most recently active. That doesn't guarantee we didn't just log off 2 seconds after you view the list, but it does increase the odds you'll get a quicker reply. Do keep in mind even if we are online we cannot always respond immediately as we may be working on another important issue.
I hope you find this site as enjoyable as I do.
Hola! Nos encanta de que hayas venido a vernos.
Simtropolis es sobre todo un sitio para la gente que ama los juegos de simulación urbana. Tenemos importantes foros para SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines y SimCity (2013), así como algunos otros en la sección de Temas de Jugadores (Gamer Topics). Nuestros miembros son amables, corteses y serviciales, y van de principiantes a gurús técnicos. Los foros son donde discutimos todo tipo de ideas de construcción de ciudades. Si juegas, o creas contenido personalizado (o ambos) tenemos secciones adecuadas para tus necesidades. Si aún no te has hecho una cuenta, ¿por qué no hacerla ahora?
También tenemos el SimTropolis EXchange, que es nuestra sección de archivos que contiene (literalmente) miles de archivos para mejorar los juegos básicos. Estos incluyen correcciones de errores, mapas, texturas para cambiar el terreno, lotes (sitios), edificios, accesorios, mods, y más. Estos están disponibles para su descarga tanto por miembros como por invitados. (Aunque los miembros no tienen que ver publicidad)
Ahora, por supuesto, tenemos algunas reglas fáciles de respetar que querrás leer en las Reglas Guías del Sitio y en el Código de Conducta de STEX. Asegúrate de revisarlas en detalle porque aplican en toda su fuerza a todo el mundo aquí, sin importar si las leyó o no.
De acuerdo. ¿Ya te hiciste una cuenta?
¡Estupendo! Ahora que ya la tienes, puedes Presentarte Aquí.
Así sigue este hilo introductorio:
Conceptos básicos del uso del software del foro Visión general de los foros Descripción general de STEX Visión general del Omnibus Puedes hacer clic en los enlaces de arriba o simplemente ir bajando, ya que cada uno está en su propio mensaje independiente en este hilo.
Además, si tienes algún problema que crees mejor discutir en privado, no dudes en enviar un mensaje privado a uno de nuestros miembros del Staff. Sugerencia: Mira en el lado derecho de esa página para ver cuál de nosotros ha estado activo recientemente. Eso no garantiza que no acabamos de cerrar sesión 2 segundos después de que revisaste la lista, pero aumenta las probabilidades que obtendrás una respuesta más rápida. Ten en cuenta que, incluso si estamos en línea, no siempre podemos responder de inmediato, ya que podemos estar trabajando en otro tema importante.
Espero que encuentres este sitio tan agradable como yo.

Site Upgrade Announcement
I'm pleased to announce @Dirktator has confirmed that today, Simtropolis is scheduled to receive a significant site upgrade. In the process we'll be incrementing the site's version to ST9.0. The latest major update to the IPS Suite will be applied to bring a whole host of new and exciting features.
Reactions This will give more flexibility to describe why you like a content item.
It'll allow Reactions to be tailored to best suit our community, such as with custom sets & icons.
Recommended Replies A way for helpful, informative or useful replies to be highlighted inside a thread.
Will be a way of drawing attention to popular posts, including those providing answers to the OP's question.
Content Messages Allow announcements or important info to be seen within a content item.
Uses may include thread guidelines, reminders to follow, or even useful info for reference (e.g. links or images).
Promoting Content A range of possibilities to improve the accessibility of content. STEX files, CJs, forum posts, the whole lot.
Social media options can be explored, such as to connect with the site's Twitter as a content stream.
Fluid Forum View Optionally view the forum via a topic list or grid mode instead of traditional categories.
This is configurable for all users via a toggle, so it's possible to easily switch between the views.
Editor Uploading Improvements Simplified ability to attach images and files to a post.
Now possible to drag & drop into specific locations, without needing to insert manually.
Gallery Improvements A range of enhancements for uploading Gallery images.
Usability improvements also introduced for albums, and also the navigation with the image lightbox display.
City Journals Sidebar CJ authors can optionally add a sidebar with information about their entries.
This uses the post editor, so text or other media can be added. HTML access available on request.
Letter Profile Photos The default avatar replaced with a random coloured background, featuring the 1st character of a username.
This will only affect users who haven't changed their avatar from the anonymous grey silhouette.
There's also the Clubs feature, which will restore a similar functionality to the old Groups. The advantage here is it's integrated and built into the core software, whereas previously it was a 3rd party plugin that was made incompatible. We won't be rolling out the Clubs immediately, but we have some ideas on how they can be used more effectively this time around, since they'll allow more options.
Plus a visual overhaul and an assortment of other minor changes.
Along with a few other surprises in store coming soon, so watch out for those too...
Since this is a larger update than usual, the site may be unavailable for a slightly longer period. It's scheduled anytime from 12pm noon EDT / 4pm UTC onwards (view clock), and we anticipate this will be no more than 1 hour.
Should the downtime be prolonged, please check our Twitter feed for progress updates.
Bugs & Stability
The new version has been released in a client beta for several weeks, meaning stability has been tried & tested. However as is common with any new software product, there's a chance for undetected bugs to crop up when applied in unique environments. Please bear with us if there are any instabilities to start with, and report them below or in the bugs thread.
We'd love to hear ways the site and the above features can be improved or best implemented. If you've any ideas feel free to share them below. We'll also be opening threads specifically to gain feedback on specific aspects within the next several weeks.
Thanks everyone, and we hope you enjoy the new site!
