  1. How often you log here?

    I usually visit the site at least once a day. On weekends I usually check 2 or 3 times to see what is going on.
  2. Solving the Plobbable Residential Housing Bug

    One test you could do to see if the plopped residential is in fact 'ghost' commuting is create a single street. On one end, plop a residential using your method and on the other end let a commercial building grow. After a few Sim months or years, see if the commercial buiding actually has any workers. Again you would have to use the route query, since the normal query only shows how many jobs are currently possible. However it turns out though, good investigative work!!
  3. Solving the Plobbable Residential Housing Bug

    If your method of creating ploppable non-abodandoned residential areas...well that's a game changer!! Have you used the route query to see if sims are actually commuting from the plopped residential? That would for sure prove your method works. And BTW, great pictures!! I like the attention to detail you put into every shot.
  4. Is SimCity dead?

    SimCity 2013 was DOA. The small maps and the fact it is not easily moddable killed it quickly. As matias93 stated, most people are either still playing SimCity 4 or moved onto Cities Skylines. I personally still play SC4. On occasion I will play SimCity 3000 or SimCity 2000. On even rarer occasions I will play SC2013, but after a point it's just not that enjoyable. On the other hand I could play SC4 for hours and not get bored.
  5. There Will Be Diagonals!

    As my kids would put it....Noice!!! Excellent attention to realism and detail. I especially like pictures 6, 8, 10 and 16. You have given me many excellent ideas for my city. Thanks!!
  6. The List

    German built Ocean Liners. Alba Macrocarpa Oblongifolia Robur Suber (BTW, my previous list were code names for different Microsoft Windows releases)
  7. Ask a forumer anything...

    Dream job would be an astronaut. Specifically I would like to explore Mars. Have you ever had a desire to travel to another planet?
  8. The "Why?" Game

    Because a strong wind pushed it there. Why does airman15 ask 'why not' instead of 'why'?
  9. I'm so old that ...

    I'm so old I remember when people actually watched where they were walking instead of looking down at some electronic device.
  10. Ask a forumer anything...

    Science fiction. Because it stirs my imagination. Have you ever stayed up for 24 hours straight (fully conscious, no cat naps allowed)?
  11. The Preference Game

    Definitely Voyager. Kirk or Pichard.
  12. Guess Who's Next V2

    No, not yet. I think jmsepe will be next.
  13. Cephalonia (Rural Scenes)

    The realism and attention to detail is truly inspiring!
  14. 3 word story

    Though the sunburn...
  15. I'm so old that ...

    I'm so old I remember when music was only available on analog media.
