SimMars in MAC

Introduction and Teaser




It's been several years since I last played or did anything SimCity related. I recently started playing SimCity 4 again because my interest in city building games came back. Given that I have a lot of free time for the next month or two, I figured that I should start up another CJ again. Like everyone else who is into mods (and downloading GBs full of mods), I downloaded several mods only to realize that the Mac version is too different than the PC version. The amount of mods that would work for the MAC version is severely limited compared to the PC version. The one mod I have been most interested in was SimMars Beta 3. As a former team-member of SimMars, I wanted to experience the same enthusiasm I had for the mod back when I contributed to it. I realize that SimMars Beta 3 only works for Windows, but I ended up using WineSkin and WineBottler to extract all of the content. As a result, I was able to get SimMars working on the Mac.


I understand that the MAC version is not fully patched like the Windows version, so there are more bugs and less capabilities (e.g. no night-lights on custom content). For the sake of playing the game and content, I am happy with what I have.
