  • What happened? I know EA has made some really poor choices, but I really do love the Sims & SimCity, I couldn't imagine forsaking my favorite games.

    EDIT

    So I'll try again, for the nth time to get Origin configured so I can access SimCity online.

    So I just edited out all my rant of complaint because it does no good.   I did manage to get back into the game. (miraculously) .  

    So I'll go the North America East server and send a friend request.

    I found 2 regions you were playing but not active in now, so I created a new region called Metro EcoTech, you can join and build as you like, or create your own and send me an invite.  I was going to send an invite, but the invite button was grayed-out.  This is why some of us get so upset over the problems with the game.  Simple thing as sending an invite should be no problem.

    The great thing about SimCity 2013 is when its operating smoothly its a very relaxing and creative game, and online mostly peaceful, but its understandable there's a lot of issues in making the online game run smoothly, so a lot of complaints aren't reasonable, overall its still manageable.  I think I'll be online SC2013 today rather than face the issues of my SimCity 4 projects.  I need a stress day off --hopefully.

    Ok, let me know when you are on and I will try

    I sent an invite (there's 2 ways of doing that).  The invite will take you to the region I started.  I'll be in there today at different times. Maybe start 2 cities if you intend to play a longer game.

    You know that's what is important, the love of the game, even in sandbox mode.  I can't play sandbox mode anymore, but I did, when I first fell in love with the game.  You are always welcome in the game, especially among the most advanced serious players.  *:)

  • I'm on now, I usually don't play Sandbow mode, I only started one up today because I was practicing making a cool road design, and I'm hoping to find some friends on there. I wanted to also take a break from the rush of it all on the other mode. I'm on though if you'd like to play I can join yours or whatever, it don't have to be sandbox mode of course. :) No rush, take your time I'll be on, just message me.

    I went back to the North Amercia West 1 server and started a region called MetroEchnoTechnoMecho.  Searching my profile 'Randy22E' you should be able to find and join --its public.    There's 4 of us building in one corner, so you can start in another corner.   My eyes are aching now so I'll get back there later.

        Ok, I have been trying to get mods to go into my SimCity Data folder, but they will not work.  I have the SimCity Cities Of Tomorrow Expansion Pack. I have tried the Mods from Simtropolis.  What am I doing wrong or isn't this program compatible with Mods?  Please Help!  I am a long time player of SimCity and would like to update the game with newer building, railroads, roads and much more.  thanks Jim

        Hello Simmers! I'm new here. I would really like to get a hold of SimCity's houses meshes, but it is hard to find them using SimCityPak. I was wondering if you guys knew an easier way to find them? I'm looking at the RW4 files , but as I click on each one the program tends to crash on me.  
         
        If you guys know an easier way to find the houses or maybe someone uploaded the meshes, I would appreciate it. 
         
        Thank you!

        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,
        I have compiled a list here of the SimCity series and related games, including the more famous ones as well as independent projects and links to various other related games.
        Please feel free to mention any relevant games and link this post to other SimCity forums as I will be updating this list over time. Some of the games in the list I found in the forums here. My goal is to make a sort of archive list of any modern city builder games so if you are looking for something older, newer, different, similar, etc you can use this list as a reference. I also recommend checking out the Mobygames database - here is a list of city builder games, merchant/trade builder games and transportation network builder games.
        If you are into ancient and medieval city building games I have also posted a similar topic in the Heavengames forums here and a copy of that thread as well as a thread of linked threads in the City Builder Games forums here. The list below will contain games from any modern city building genre, as long as there is some kind of minimal amount of building involved.
        There are a bunch of independent modern city builder games so there is a lot of potential for a new SimCity sequel or new type of game, whether done in a classic 2d style or 3d style, either developed by a big company or independently. One promising example of independent development is the ancient military rts game 0AD, which can be interpreted as a remake of Age of Empires but in 3d, more historically realistic and the game will be fully moddable - so it seems there are still ways that the rts and city building game genres can evolve.
        Maybe creating a game engine, code, or game that could be custom modded is possible at this point after over a couple decades of various city builders. A game where people could modify the setting to include various modern urban settings such as a pre-Industrial age, early Industrial age, modern age, various post-Industrial age settings, alternate histories, scifi, alien, fantasy and alternate/"what if" past, present, and future settings would be interesting. A recent example of a futuristic scifi/fantasy city-building game is Anno 2070 which is included below.
        I have added some games in this list which are not directly related to modern city building. For example the Rise of Nations and Empire Earth series are military rts games, but they feature a modern age setting either in an age-progression or standalone-age game. I also added Spore and related games and programs to this list because they are and expanded version from city to global scale building. So I felt it would be interesting to include it here as it might open up some possibilities for new game finds and ideas. As some know, the final Spore game came out to be different from the 2005 video demo, so there is still untapped potential in the genre of biological simulation and global civilization building games.

        List of related rts and city builder projects and discussions:
        - 0 AD (2000, ?) - an ancient military rts game, sort of a Age of Empires 3d "remake" but better, is open for game testing and and will have the option for custom modding.
        - Glest (2004) - is a game engine for fantasy rts games.
        - Zero-K (2010) - is an open source futuristic military rts game.

        These game lists have been cross posted on related gaming forums:

        Also see:
         
        A list of fantasy and sci-fi rts and city builder games here, here, here

        So some options for new city builder games may be the following:
        - mod the existing games in some ways such as the many SimCity 4 mods for something different
        - research existing and past attempts at independent games that weren't completed and use some of the data if allowed and/or work on completing them
        - create new games independently from scratch which will take time if funds and talent is limited, but is certainly possible
        - it's up to gamers to post on various forums, social networks, and game mod websites to generate interest and potential collaborations
        - ideally an open source version of a city building game can be made where anyone can go in and mod it to add any historical time periods and civilizations or completely new settings, including ancient, medieval, pre-industrial, modern, post-industrial, alternate history, fantasy, scfi, alien, custom, any specific historical time/culture/location, etc.
