These discs are a great way to ensure you have the very best files spanning the years, and with your donation, you'll be supporting Simtropolis so we can keep community thriving!
"I am quite pleased with the contents. A bunch of these creators I have never heard of but have some interesting content. Tried and true favourites are here: FrankU, Mattb, Jasoncw, JBSimio and so on. But it is so "well organised" I love it. "
But can't I already download these from the STEX?
Yes you can. These discs -- with very few exceptions (some authors have contributed exclusive items that can only be found on these discs) -- contain what you can find online, the difference is that we've done the collecting for you based on quality and feedback from the community.
What does it require?
DVD-ROM drive required Windows (XP or above). Installs to your HDD for easy browsing.

Where's Volume 1 and 2?

Where do you ship?

How long does it take to get to me? Updated August 2016
The discs are produced on an as-needed-basis. Currently, from the time when a donation is received, we estimate 3-4 weeks for discs to reach you (sometimes longer depending on your geographic location).
At present, the extended delivery times are due to time constraints with production and packaging. But rest assured, the discs will get there as promised!
Each donation is very much appreciated, and thanks for your patience.
When will it be available?
Volumes 3, 4 and 5 are all shipping!
