  1. STEX CDs and Donations

    Hey thanks for all the help. I'm currently having different problems with pay pal and can't try to solve this current problem but I appreciate the responses. If I don't respond just assume my problem is solved. Thanks.
  2. TV Shows: What are you into right now?

    New Seasons of Better Call Saul and Rick and Morty soonish. Who's watching?
  3. The war on ISIS and Jihadists

    Thanks for posting these videos, they're a real look at what's actually happening while most news networks will show the same 10 second clip over and over again. I admit I'm disconnected with what's going on in the Middle East just like most others. I agree with lexus however, and am not as optimistic as you. ISIS's territory doesn't matter, they're not a unified nation, just a collection of rebels. The state of affairs now, and since the 80's, show that these rouge rebel groups are here to stay for a while. And contrary to popular belief, not all of the middle east isn't a desert wasteland, they have more trees than Kansas and the land is beautiful when it's not being bombarded with missiles. The west is numb to the wars in the middle east at this point, even atrocities in local areas become no big deal when they happen every day let alone a war far away from us. Terrorist attacks are still constantly happening, which somewhat unifies the effort towards suppressing the groups that the US and Russia may have sort of funded in that little Cold War we had a while ago... This age we live in is definitely a huge change from not even 20 years ago. Now we have so much footage of modern conflicts, we can be a little less disconnected from them. That first video you shared had an Iraqi grunt walking down the street scrolling down his phone!

    I am unable to pay for anything because paypal wont let me choose states, I can only choose Canadian provinces. I PMed Dirk about this but it's been a few days, maybe someone else can help. I am unsure if this is a ST problem, paypal problem, or only a problem for me and wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this problem?
  5. Show Us Your Photos!

    Great pictures everyone! I haven't gone anywhere special, all these pictures are within a couple miles of my house. I've got more pictures on my flicker if you're interested enough: https://www.flickr.com/photos/47757922@N06/ Hope other people most more of their photography, this thread has slowed down too much.
  6. The future of "Chat"...

    If the poll was still open I'd say yes. I've been in chat on and off for the 8 years I've been here, used and still use it more often than the forums. Despite how slow it is now compared to the past we still get users. Maybe it might be nice to see some sort of promotion of the chatroom; bring in some new faces rather than just getting rid of it. I am unsure the extent of this sites funding problems but if a cheaper chat even with less features if that would allow us to keep it up that would be okay. I have to say I don't come onto this site too often anymore but I still enjoy talking to the friends I made that still come into chat over the years, and I enjoy using STchat over other alternatives. Talking on the forums is a lot more impersonal than an actual conversation in chat. Getting help for a new member in chat is a lot quicker than having them wait for responses on the forums. Maybe my view is simply sentimental but I would rather not see chat go, as that will probably be the day I stop coming here all together. I can understand putting the well-being of the entire site above the few of us that still use chat. However a free option such as discord, with the consequence of less integration with the site, would be perfectly acceptable. Us chat users will be happy we still have something, and everyone will be happy with the site spending less money on something few people use rather paying for something just so we have features. I know the poll's closed but I still wanted my voice out here on the matter. And thanks for asking the community before making a big decision like this.
  7. 2016: Year in Review

    I wish the pictures for my old CJ still existed online, but it's good to know people still remember it. Thanks a lot, what you've made SC4 look like is just mindblowing. Don't stop.
  8. Back into SC4

    I love every square meter of your city.
  9. Alkon Crown, Highlands

    Don't see amazing snowy landscapes too often. It'd be a treat to see some more.
  10. Núrn

    Repliesy: Thanks, comp dude, nice to see you again. I do have a slope mod, though it's a mild one. It does decent for most networks except for streets, and I can deal with that. With the rugged terrain I'm working with I have to be able to utilize grades steeper than 1% (Exaggeration I know, but most slope mods I see are way too shallow for what I wish to deal with) . . . have you ever been to San Francisco? (Maybe I'll just have to make my own slope mod? ) Lake Linnaewen Another user suggested to see an island somewhere, so here is a mysterious little island in a lake, recently discovered. Apparently our pioneers in Nurn aren't the first inhabitants of this rugged coastline. Lake Linnaewen is pretty far off the beaten path, but there's almost two whole islands in this lake! In the treeless tundra of the NW, very little action occurs aside from the usual Caribou migrations. and yet here lies a curious little place. One island, and another just barley attached to the mainland buy a sliver of a sandbar. Some little abandoned settlement leaves its remains on two islands along side some strange and rare species of trees. The lost village has no vestige of its past, however for some reason it's fields look nicely tilled and still growing crops. Hmm... No memory of the adjacent island either. Both remain shrouded in mystery, as any evidence of what happened to this colony was lost long ago. However the towering stone monument has a strange ancient aura about it... Thats all for now. Let me know what of Gorgoroth you want to see in the future! Oh, and here's a bonus region view for you all! (Here is a 4824x3000 version of the image of below)
  11. Nurn Grows Day by Day

    Nurn Grows Day by Day As everyone probably wants to see, here's some growth... just a little though. Can't let anyone get too excited now. Wow, what the hell is this? These farmers are funny, thinking they can last much longer as the pollution and noise interrupt their day to day operations. Their crops yield less with each passing season, the dirt farming a plight upon the ritzy wealth of central Nurn. .. ...well would you look at that, they've already abandoned their homes! Not looking too bright for agriculture. Immigrants want some of that prime downtown land before this place gets too populated! Some of them see the potential. Finally they sold out...! It's about time too, marina expansion propositions are starting to pop up down at City Hall. Residents are starting to wonder why agricultural zoning and those nice down to earth farmers still think they have any business and gall trying to operate on Nurn island. While it's not a farm, many agreed to keep the rare block of redwoods that still grow this far within the city limits. It's a miracle they're even still alive! As Nurn's first official park, residents are appalled to see unused land fall into government hands under the premise of... ugh... "beautification" as they call it. Although once the planned paths and parkland is built the others will be happy to have a place to sit read books like Atlas Shrugged in public so that they can prove how intellectual and informed about capitalism they are to all the other sims. Despite their differences the Sims will have to learn to deal with each other some day. They all live on the same island (not "technically" an island) after all. That's all for now! Tell me what you want to see of Nurn and Gorgoroth in the future.
  12. Battery Park, part two

    I can't imagine how much work you put into all that custom lotting, it looks perfect.
  13. Saint Malin Highlands

    This area looks awesome, hope to see more!
