    "Please note that the thing I did here, was plopping all kind of things in certain places. All these things are made by others." On such masterpieces it's uncommon to ask the painter if the colors he used on his painting were fabricated by himself. You made a good use of the props and created a nice composition. Enough to call yourself artist.

    Sorry, I don't know how to spell the sound correctly I made when I saw your latest work. Therefore I can't comment. But it was something similar to this:
  3. madhatter106's Surf Shacks re-lotted by Paeng

    First off all - thank you so much for bringing them back to life. They are so well done. I've missed them on the old SimPeg site and I'm very glad to discover them now. Sadly I play a central germany region. But ... well ... I'll put them anyway in my city ... even if there's no beach close.

    Now ... that's a reason to become SC4 major. Thank you. BTW: do the seats have lumbar support? You know, at my age ...

    I'm so old ... in my youth to watch porn I had to spy on the neighbors.
  6. The Obituaries Thread

    Tomasz Stanko, polands famous trumpet player dies at the age of 76. From his music I took so much inspiration- Like those embracements after a long travel you get from your car, your back aches, you're a littel stiff, but the grandchilds and your daughter come out of the house and all want to to hug you at the same time ... and suddenly the aching falls apart and you feel fresh an young ... ... like this was is the music of Tomasz Stanko perhaps to me. The kind of drink that satisfies the thirst of my soul. How sad. How sad. May eternity rock him softly in a tune. https://vimeo.com/170327614 You may notice his extraodinary expression on this tune, how he drags and aspirates the tones of the trumpet - making it some "talking device". Here he presents his last recorded album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB7GF8KWG4E
  7. Tomasz Stanko one of the main sources of my inspiration, died today at the age of 76. I'm listening to his album "Suspended Nights".

  9. Should I buy SimCity 2013 or not?

    There were boys that did spent money for a very simple toy like a football and they were totally happy playing with this football and one became even a football star and earned a lot of money and he bought a big yacht and when the boy - now a grown up man - was on his yacht, he played with his football, because basically just staying on the yacht was quite anoying but playing the old football on a yacht - that was fun. Basically games are like toys - the fun they give to you is the most important thing about them. You don't need everything to have fun. It's very different on people, what is fun to them and I'm afraid, you'll have to find out yourself. Some like jokes about genital organs, some like maths. Some like both. It's too much difference in people to give a general advice 'what is fun'. In my opinion a set of badminton rackets is much more fun for summer than SC2013. And most people would say - if you have played c:s and sc4 already, most probably SC2013 won't give you any new experience and add any new fun. So how's about a chipmunk? They can be terrible funny. You can make videos and post them on YouTube and become famous. I doubt anyone want's to see SC2013 videos on YouTube anymore and to become famous with sc2013 videos. So a chipmunk is definitely the better choice. But still - this is only my individual point of view.
  10. The problem is - I don't know exactly for what reason CAM overrides all default (maxis) farm fields. But the Sunflower field uses an ID already used by Maxis. So it will override one of the default fields. So basically you have a conflict as CAM and the sunflower field each overriding the same data. If you create a farm field but no farms, the field won't appear in the game - as only farm fields assigned to a farm can appear. So most probably this was the reason for HunD88 to override a default field ID so the sunflower field could show up in the base game without manual configuration by the user. I don't think apart from appearing in unwanted places - there is no harm to the game caused by the conflict between the sunflower field and the Colossus Addon Mod. But with the Colossus Farming Mod there are several custom farms using a sunflower field with the sunflower props by HunD88. So basically, the original solution of overriding a maxis farm field isn't needed anmore - as the mod now solves the initial issue of having no custom farms. So basically you have a field lot that conflicts with CAM and that is not necessary as Colossus Farming fixes the no-farm problem. At this point it seemed better to drop the original lot file - especially if you use a maxis farm blocker it won't be of any use. So there is no need to edit the original lot file by HunD88. Included in Colossus Farming is a new, very similar farm field with an individual ID. You have to edit the farms, the fields-ID list, and ad this new farm field, only if you want the sunflowers appear on other farms of your choice. Otherwise just remove the original lot file by HunD88. The only conseqence of doing so is, the sunflowers won't appear on maxis default farms anymore and sometimes, unwanted, on CAM-farms. And again: if you use a maxis farm blocker you won't even notice a difference.

  12. Why So Many Moderators Here?

    Sometimes internet gives you the illusion, you can build up community, a social network everywhere. But they are just virtual and often worse: commercial fakes.. Instead you have to find your friends always where you are, not where you want to be. This relationship is explained by the story of the soldier and the princess: Basically you're doing like the soldier, @chfzdn you want to conquer the princess heart because she seems the most beautiful, most respectable, the most glorious treasure. And all the tasks she gives to you, you will execute lighthearted - just in the hope to gain her heart. But the princesses always will mary princes - and they will always only play with your heart and your faithfullness. And all the gain will be - you will be her fool, her pet or toy. You must find a bride that suits you - a bride that wants you the same as you want her. And that's the same on all social networks - don't go for fame, for those people on the balconies looking down at you, find your friends amongst the common people. Now they tell you, you have to become a prince first. And you do everything they tell you is necessary for a prince. But believe me, they will always find new tasks ... as you and me - we will never be a prince. And believe me, dancing with the maidservant in the yard is much better than crying for the princess up on the balcony.
  13. Should the 5 Star Rating System be Removed on ST ?

    Still, I think, moderators should be intermediary, not dividing ideas of community members in good and bad, deciding about people being wrong or right but strengthen community assisting them to gather together. I can't take your word if you behave different than your talking is, splitting up community into political objects and attacking single members as if they were adversaries. In your words you use a 'we' - you don't talk as a single person but as an ambassador of a group. This 'We' appears as something different from community in your words. I suggest, you think about the construction of this 'we', how it is settled. Basically it is settled the same way as by Philip Zimbardo in 1971. With all consequences.
  14. Sharing Plugins Folders - Discussion

    Well, I'm afraid there won't be any lawyer in western world that will regard Dirk and his 'dirktatorship' as some kind of non-profit organisation but just as a funny term to express, that this site is his business. And so 'community leaders' from a legal point of view will be regarded as his employees instead of community representants. As they weren't elected or choosen by community. If they decide to offer free content without the written and explict consent of the creators and the site is making profit or gains money with advertising space etc., imho they will be in real troubles. Community members not involved with the site - imho - have certain advantages in this case. Or the site is acknowledged by canadian law being a non-profit organisation. I don't know. But being a site descission not a community descission - makes it a different legal thing imho.

    May I ask: to whom exactly the term 'community leaders' is refering to? And if you use the word 'we' - how exactly differs this 'we' from community? As if this 'we' is something closed, on the inside, which the term 'internal discussion' at least suggest, one could think, there are two communities present in your post - an outer community that recieves descissions from the inner community, that makes descission. So maybe, for the outer community it's good to know, who makes the decission about community on the inside or what this inside is in detail. A parliament, a court, a group of elected members like some kind of council of elders? It seems I can't find public information about how this inner circle is organized. And if final descissions on the inside have to be approved in some way by another instance - or if this inner part is legislative, executive and judiciary at the same time and therefore makes up the whole community by itself - while people not member of this inner part can't be part of community, as they can't participate in things that settles community. So the 'we' defines community and everybody not being part of this 'we' are 'them', the others, outside of the community. So if the term 'community leaders' is f.e. refering to Simtropolis moderators this would mean 'community' is formed by them and everybody else not being a moderator would be some kind of guest visiting this community of moderators. Or am I wrong? To me atm, it sounds more like running a business. You know, EA f.e., they ask the players what they want like to see and then they make their descission (on the inside) and present a new game to the public. You can't call this a community. It's the relationship of a company and their customers. The company makes the descissions - more or less (you can't satisfy everybody) in favor of their clients. Imho.
