  1. How is the person above you going to die?

    V stands for victim...so yeah, some alien reptile had you for lunch.
  2. Tile loop vs tile hub?

    @CorinaMarie From your little experiment above, could you post a picture of the route taken by the commuters across the border to the factories. It would be interesting to see if the numbers across the border line up and if the simulator actually routes the sims to the specific factories. If it does, then wouldn't this seem to indicate that the SC4 simulator actually does know were the jobs exist across the border and how long it takes the sim to get their. Another part of the experiment could be to create a job on the other side of the tile and get a sim to 'change jobs' and start commuting there and see if their commute time increases. I admit this may be tricky to do. Edit: I did a small experiment to see how the game updates cities. I have three cities of En Rogel, Tamar and Boonville. En Rogel is neighbor to Tamar and Boonville. Boonville and Tamar are not neighbors. Each city has a 'Last Modified' date of 6/23/2016. I played En Rogel for 5 sim years, but did not play Tamar or Boonville. When I went back to see the Last Modified date, all three cities had a date of 3/29/2017, even though I did not open or play Tamar or Boonville (the neighbors of the neighbors did not change dates). To me this indicates that the simulator is passing on information to the neighbor cities. I'm not sure what that 'information is, but possibly it is infomation of commuters, commute time, job locations (as far as distance), etc...
  3. Tile loop vs tile hub?

    Maybe this sim leaves his house late and has to drive his car behind all the slow moving pedestrians.
  4. Why should the person above you be banned? V2

    Banned because Skimbo is code for Obmiks.
  5. I would hightly recommend getting the GOG version, as Cori suggested. This has no DRM whatsoever and I have been able to use it with all the Mods and Dependencies that I had when I used the original CD version (including NAM, SPAM, the I-HT fix and many others).
  6. Great Works problem/question

    I believe that rsc204 is correct. You will need the global deliveries turned on to deliver the goods to the Great Works project. However, I believe that local deliveries and any needs in your city take higher priority. Therefore you will need to make sure you are producing enough extra to take care of your city needs, then any neighbor deals and finally the Great Works needs. Also, make sure you give the simulator enough time to actually recognize the deliveries. If the deliveries are being made, you should actually see trucks driving to the Great Works to drop off the material.
  7. My mapping topic

    I have actually watched all the Mystery Inc. cartoon shows (my son is a big fan). I would say that APSMS has some good suggestions to try to create the Crystal Cove map. Since it is a fictional show, I would say that you have creative license to create the map how you think it should look. Of course the map will need a cove, a beach and hilly terrain.
  8. Zone Color

    Actually, all cities in the US use a some sort of color scheme for zoning. Maybe some city that one of the original SimCity designers lived in used a color scheme of green - residential, blue - commercial and yellow - industrial for their zoning maps. Obviously, actual cities have many more zoning types than SimCity does, so their zoning color scheme will involve a lot of different colors. For example, the city I live in uses 3 zone types for business, 3 types for industrial, and 9 types for residential. The business zones are colored red or purple. The industrial zones are colored bluish/purplish. Residential ranges from green to brown. Another nearby town uses red - business, purple - industrial and yellow - residential.
  9. Midrise Office Pack Volume 8

    Fantastic set!! Your BATs are an automatic download for me. The variety of buildings you have provided for the game is greatly appreciated. Can't wait to add these to my madhatter section in my plugins! Keep up the great work.
  10. Forest Fires becoming a problem

    Have you checked your flammibility map to see if there are any 'hot spots' in your forest? It could be from a nearby building or if you don't have any water supply to the tile. Also, any area within a fire station range should not see any fires, since they are automatically put out.
  11. I would highly recommend to anybody to get the GOG version. It is not "entangled" up with Origin or Steam DRM. Also, it works great on Windows 10 or 7 (I have tried both).

    Never had, but would probably love. Rally races?
  18. What if?

    There would be a lot more green, untouched, wild areas left. What if we could stop cutting down the rainforests and restore them to their former extent.
