SimGoober Fest 2011




SimGooberfest 2011!

Sometimes I just want to putz around with Sim City. So, I have a region or two not part of Schulmania that I use when I want to do something different. In one region, I build big. In one, I build random. In the random one, I had a medium size tile I decided to put something lower density on. (In case you are wondering, the tile was named Catclaw Acacia, which may become the official national tree of Harar). As I was building, I noticed that there were tons of SimGoober’s buildings popping up all over town. Now, for those of you not familiar with SimGoober, he is one of the most prolific and popular builders in the history of SimCity 4. His contributions on the STEX have combined downloads in the millions. And if you are making a realistic looking city, it just would not be complete without something from the SG stable. So, I decided to start counting just how many different SG works I had in the city. I combed through fairly carefully and took some pictures. And those pictures are now a tribute to one of the sim world’s greatest builders.

Welcome to SimGooberfest!


There’s no storyline here, just a compilation of some of SimGoober’s works. His commercial buildings are essential to any town and he has plenty of residential and other buildings as well. Enjoy, and if you don’t have these buildings, hit the STEX and stock up!































And now the challenge: Let's see your best pix of SimGoober's stuff!

Hmm, just look at this:
Just a few scattered buildings but more to the north.
He actually takes part in my houses too. Look at that red southern style house towards the north. He makes beautiful houses that mix with my Mattb's.
Towards the bottom there is a blueish restaurant that says fast food by him. I will edit in some more pictures later, I love his creations, they are the best of all!

Great update! SimGoober was one of my very first favourite creators, to put it that way. His commercials, feauturing real life companies and shops, sometimes with a solid amount of humour added, added to the realism in any city. However, I use less SG stuff now than before. Of course, this has nothing to do with lack of quality or such, I simply find a number of the BATs a little too American for my Euro region..

Still, I bet there are quite a few SG bits in my cities, such as the bus stops (like on [b]Yoshiisland[/b]'s pic).
