My feedback is for putting the time in UTC and as 24h next time so the rest of the universe can automatically know what time it will be on their territory without having to google what EDT is and without the eternal question if 12pm is midnight or noon. I'm assuming it's noon as I'm expecting the most common convention.

BTW that's 16:00 UTC. *;)

 

Edit: Looked at the changelog and nice changes, hopefully the STEX will be easier to search and navigate.

  • All clear!  *:yes:

    Don't worry, we're not quite done yet, and a few of the themes still need some major work. Many of the site's custom changes require merging with the new code. There are also other areas such as the navigation bar which need an overhaul. Also the moose icon in tribute to @A Nonny Moose we'll be finding a better way of adding the header.

    Any comments, thoughts or things not working as they should, please let us know!

    Looks really good and well organized.  In the  Latest City-Building News section the grey text on blue background isn't showing through.   Looked at the page with IE and Chrome. 

    Yup, just checked on Vivaldi on a PC and Opera on a cell phone and in both the white backgrounds are gone, and some texts are thus sorely lacking contrast. In any case, I like better the darker backgrounds (or the lack of a white one), so maybe there's a choose to do there...

    we have reactions! (Hmm, not yet :/ )

    To start with we've just enabled the default Like heart button, so the functionality is currently still exactly the same as before. But they will be coming once we've decided on a suitable configuration, with our own custom icons. *;)

    Thanks. Yes, those block headers will need more contrast to make them stand out more.

    Dirk's just added the pink overlay as a test, and to show the site has upgraded. *:lol:

    That won't be the finished version and there are plans for a completely new header image.

    Where did the newest additions on the home page go?

    Take a look at individual lot pages.....there's some work to be done there quickly.

    On the right side, after the 'welcome to simtropolis'; though they have been there for a couple of weeks by now,

    Holy Moly!  You really outdid yourselves in the CJ section.  Korver's pictures look even more spectacular with the larger size and super resolution.

    Definitely need to change the font colour (white maybe) on the dark background.  Hard to see.  And perhaps some of the smaller fonts could be enlarged. - some of us are in the older crowd you know...

    The STEX looks way better.  Like how you show the different city games.

    Really like the new header on the home page. Don't find it ugly myself.

      Looking forward to what you do with A Nonny Moose's avatar.

    Keep up the good work (even if I hate change on websites *:) as long as  I can still find stuff I'm good).

    Newest files should still show on the right hand sidebar (scroll down a little).

    If that's not it, do you mean the features slider or one of the other feeds aren't shown there?

    There are a few theming issues on file category listings. Is that what you're referring to?

    If not, please post a screenshot and a link to an affected page and we'll investigate.

    Pretty cool stuff, loving the new forum features! I just went to check out the city journals section for the first time in a long while, though, and was surprised to see it pulling 232MB of content before I even opened one of the CJs in detail. This isn't an issue with the new update since it looks like it's been like this for a while, but it seems to have to do with the site downloading the entire contents of the CJ entries shown on the front page — including the high-res images — even if nothing below the first image is shown. Is there a way to change this behavior?

    Yes, it's something we're flagging with the developers as it is rather egregious! We don't have any direct control over this.

    I like the new like button. To me (senior mole with old glasses) it's more easier to find and to hit it now.  Don't put too much functionality there - making me worry and thinking for days: which one ist the right to click? Please keep it simple. But maybe 'like' could be split up in two parts: one to thank saying this is interesting and helpful post, one to like saying this is beautiful or amusing etc (to split helpful and entertaining posts). Later one could perhaps sort results by the most voted as helpful when searching for an issue?

    Wow, I totally missed that over on the right.

     

    And the issues I was seeing were all theme and are all fixed now.   

     

    It's looking really great now.

        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).

        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.

        I thought it would be cool to create a thread for members of the site to join if they have been a member for more than 1 year.  Although there really isn't a point to it, I just thought it might be interesting to keep a running log of active Simtropolis Annuarians...although you'd have to post here to affirm that yes, you are still active.   So here are your Simtropolis Annuarians and Bi-Annuarians!  Annuarians are members who have been at Simtropolis at least 365 days and are still active; Bi-Annuarians have been here at least 730 days.  Triannuarians have been here for 1,095 days.  Next January, watch for the first Quartenarians - members who have been at ST for at least 1,400 days.

        This mod may not be compatible with the "All 3 CityHalls Modd Reward fix". This plugin is intended to supersede that file's behavior.
        This is a DLL for SimCity 4 that makes the City Hall reward upgradeable. Instead of implementing the three City Hall stages as separate reward lots, this mod implements Maxis' originally intended behavior of actually replacing the City Hall lot as new stages are unlocked. It also prompts the user with advisor messages asking if they want to upgrade the reward, just like the airport upgrade behavior.
        This mod is part of my effort to deconstruct the internal game interfaces. The development thread can be found at this link. Source code is over here.
        Behavior
        The user is prompted monthly to upgrade to stage 2 when the city's population reaches 45,000, and to upgrade to stage 3 at 95,000. The mod also adds a cheat code, "UpgradeCityHall," that forces the upgrade prompt to appear regardless of population.
        Installation
        Unzip to your plugins folder.
        On Windows and Mac versions other than the App Store, this is in Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. On the Mac App Store version, this is in ~/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.simcity4.appstore/Data/Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins. Create these directories if they do not exist yet.
        Mac users
        You must install SC4MacInjector before using this mod or else nothing will happen.
        Compatibility
        Tested and working on 1.1.641.0 (Steam/GOG/Origin) on Windows and the Steam version of SC4 for Mac. Also works in combination with SC4Fix and the Extra Cheats DLL. Untested but should work with any version of SimCity 4 Deluxe or SimCity 4 w/ Rush Hour.

        The login abilities via Facebook and Google+ seem to be broken again as getting this message from trying with Facebook..
        App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions.
        Just thought I would let you know that the issue has cropped up again..
