  1. Synekism - A New City Simulation Game

    Sweet thanks for the info. I seem to over complicate things sometimes. I'll probably need to know more as coding is a picky thing. Strangely enough, I started my own thread under the Boomtown section of the simtropolis forums. here's the direct link to that topic: It's a new project I started a few weeks ago so it isn't much for now. Let me know what you think. Thanks again
  2. Synekism - A New City Simulation Game

    Synekism, Yelmond. I've been watching this game for a while and I like the freedom to build at all angles as well as the free range camera to view the city from any POV. I have just recently discovered this thread on simtropolis and am glad to see such a large interest in your project. I do have a question on how you make your road network system. I am thinking about a link-and-connector system for my project, but it's a matter of connecting them together in a stable but efficient manner. I'm just wondering how you guys did that exactly. If you guys don't want to give away the techniques you use then that's ok as I am just exploring options at this time. if you are interested in seeing what I have so far, PM me, or let me know it's ok to post the forum link in this thread.
  3. Guillaume, you're telling me that if I wanted to have a road that I made to "connect" to a city next to my 2x2 map, I can't do that?
  4. I watched the Maxis Live Brodcast on YouTube and I noticed that the distance-blur effect is used a bit too much for my taste. Is there an option to change that effect so I can see more clearly into the distance? If this question has been answered already, link me in where it's been asked....Thanks-
  5. Even though SC13 won't be like this, the people at maxis need to see this video anyway.
  6. If there are ads in the game such as on billboards....then online play should be free, PERIOD.
  7. I wonder if the glassbox engine will take advantage of the CUDA cores on the GeForce cards.......any info on this?
  8. Interprocess Communication (IPC)

    Ancient Chinese Secret... I was wondering this too. Like to hear some kind of possible answer-
  9. Make SimCity(5) 3D

    when I looked up Glasses-Free 3D tv on youtube I got this........ All I can say is, Dear Santa.......
  10. But Terribletown, I want to drive around in my 3D city and cause all kinds of shenanigans! Don't blow that for me dude...
  11. ------------------------------------------- Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better or Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better Operating System: Windows XP/Vista/7 RAM: Windows XP: 1.5GB Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB RAM Graphics Card: ATI X1800 or better* nVidia 7800 or better* Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better* DVD-ROM: 8x or better ---------------------------------- My old system had a AMD Quad Core, 4GB of RAM, nVidia 9800GT 1.5GB and the same speed DVD rom drive. Is the new SimCity really going to run good on such dated specs? Or are these the dirt-minimum specs so the game will open and barely function? When I get my new system made you bet it's going to have way better specs than what is listed here. Of course I'll wait for another 6 months or so before I start looking for that new top-shelf system to run this game. What do you all have planned in the way of a new computer system to handle this and other new games?
  12. Discussion about City Tile Size

    I would like to see larger tiles for cities, but I can handle the 2x2 sized tiles if the surrounding tiles are pseudo-rendered so I can do camera angles really close to the ground that look out into the far distance to give the impression of the grand scales.....especially for the night shots and the distant lights that would be visible for miles.
  13. I just had this thought 30 seconds before I started to type out this topic. Why not make the new SimCity compatible with the 3D TV's for a more immersive experience? Some may call this gimmicky but I would love to see this new game with all the latest bells and whistles. Wouldn't you?
  14. Who am I kidding........I'm already sold on this game......can't wait for more details though-
  15. SimCity: Gameplay

    So far what Tickleonthetummy has stated, I am really starting to like what I read about this alleged SC5.....So far I am really hoping that my previous post was nothing more than just a knee-jerk reaction by a SimCity addicted fanatic that has been let down so many times in the past. I think I'll stow my pitchforks and torches until more is released on this up-coming title.
