  1. Extensive Grass Lots

  2. SimCity Players Overload Origin Servers SimCity returned today after a 10-year hiatus, and gamers were eager to dig in, prompting delays on Electronic Arts's Origin platform. Some users who tried to download SimCity via Origin today encountered a "Not yet released" message. Earlier today, an EA rep said on the company's forum that there are two possible reasons for the delays: the game is actually not yet released in your country; or your credit card payment failed or was unable to be charged. "We have also identified a very small number of North American players for which neither case applies and are investigating directly with Origin to resolve. We will continue to post updates in this thread as more information becomes available," EA said earlier today. At this point, SimCity is - in theory - available via Origin in North America, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Russia. It will go live in Europe (except the U.K. and Ireland), Australia, and Japan on March 7 and New Zealand, South Africa, India, the U.K., Ireland, and Portugal on March 8. EA suggested that those who might be having credit card issues contact customer service, but many of those on the forums complained about extremely long wait times. One player did manage to connect with support staff, though, and had this to say: "Got into a support chat. The gist is that there is an issue and they are working on it. There is no ETA. It is not an issue with my account specifically," drdoak wrote. "Being from an IT background, this happens sometimes. It is always frustrating for users, but sometimes you really don't know what the ETA is until you're almost done fixing the issue." Read the rest at the source.
  3. This has happened to me before twice. Once the problem resolved itself, and the second time I was stuck with a broken region from the second time. I tried switching operating systems and reinstalling all of my plugins (I really liked the city), and that did seem to work. It was a switch from Mac to PC, so maybe just reinstalling would work.
  4. SimCity 4 10th Anniversary Live Broadcast

    Maxis will be hosting a broadcast on February 21st to honor the 10th anniversary of SimCity 4. It appears the event will be a fusion between "old" (SimCity 4) and "new" (SimCity 2013).
  5. Restarting SimCity 4 on Boot camp... but now I can't stop.

  6. Part Two of the SimCity Gameplay Strategy series featuring Lead Designer Stone Librande. "...Some time has gone by and Stone's Casino Empire is thriving. How should Stone customize his casino to pull in more tourists and make more Simoleons? By adding a celebrity stage, blackjack tables or more hotel rooms? Watch what happens when his city becomes so big he runs out of power! Casinos attract a lot of crime, but Stone can use the crime data layer to diagnose his crime problem and plop an impressive Police Precinct and Helipad upgrade to increase his coverage. When a disaster strikes, will Stone's neighbor Dan send fire trucks to Casino City to help rescue his Sims? With new multi-city play cities can work together to solve their problems. You can play with friends or control an entire region by yourself!"

    New "insider" article on how cities are built in the new SimCity.
  8. According to the most recent EA financial report, the new SimCity will have a mobile version.
  9. For a limited time only, you can get the classic SimCity 2000 for $3 off, PC and Mac.
  10. I think you need an Intel Core processor, sorry.
  11. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    Never mind it was WillSim's long train mod V1
  12. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    I'm looking for a mod which speeds up traffic; I currently have it installed, but want to remove it becuase U-Drive-It is impossible with it. Thanks!
