Thank You all for your replies! :)

This time I will show you some of Rock-Creek's extensive inner city. Built largely during the industrial boom

in the late 19th and early 20th century, it has been in decay for many decades.


Though these Italianate style row-homes are still home to a vibrant community, many sit boarded up or as empty shells.


Crime is a serious problem in many of these neighborhoods, particularly because of recent police budget cuts.


Once home to large, architecturally magnificent commercial districts, large areas have now been rebuilt into modern shopping centers.


Nearby, a steel factory spews smoke in the midst of a rare period of full production. The evening shift received their two week notices a few days ago.

Would you be able to help us catch up after a bit of a shortfall?

We had a small shortfall last month. Your donation today would help us catch up for this month.

Make a Donation, Get a Gift!

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.

Each donation helps keep Simtropolis online, open and free!

Thank you for reading and enjoy the site!
