      Outages - STEX Test Ready   09/22/2018

      Update: 24 Sept, 2018 @ 19:45 EDT We've been up for one hour with this STEX test and so far server loads are looking good, page load times seem normal, and avatar hover overs are mostly zippy fast. The plan is to run with this configuration until tomorrow evening to give us plenty of time to see if the site stays responsive before we add the STEX access back for guests. (Rest assured, dear guests, we are not trying to force you to join ST. It's just that we have to figure out what has been causing the site to totally crash.) Update: 24 Sept, 2018 @ 18:41 EDT We've brought the STEX back online for members only as our next test. This test might also overload the site as there is some underlying bug which we have not yet identified. Both Cyclone Boom and I are here to keep an eye on the performance. Should ST get overloaded and go down you will first start seeing long page load times and eventually 522/524 errors from Cloudflare. At that point CB will work his magic and then you'll start seeing a 403 Forbidden error. (This means all access is blocked so the site can re-recover.) And then in about 10-15 minutes we'll bring it back without the STEX again should this bad stuff happen causing the aforementioned site crash. See also: My initial Bugs Thread post and CB's recent post there saying we are up in test mode for members. Update: 23 Sept, 2018 @ 22:22 EDT The site stayed up a wee bit longer, but still succumbed to whatever is causing the trouble. At this point we are taking the STEX and the Gallery offline, but will try to keep the forums going. Update: 23 Sept, 2018 @ 18:59 EDT Cyclone Boom has optimized all database tables which is sort of like defragmenting a hard drive. We've brought the site back online and are hoping it helps with the problems. The previous message (below) still applies until we are sure everything is fixed. Previous message: Simtropolis is experiencing random spikes of heavy server load and excessive lag to the point the whole site becomes unresponsive. We've been taking it offline to let it catch up with the load and then bringing it back. This is the best stop gap measure we have at the moment. If you are creating a new topic or post I suggest making a copy and paste to a text editor before clicking the submit button as we can't be sure it won't go offline at the wrong moment for you.

  1. Hello guys i just have done some research before start a new city and thought about share with you the best of what i found first thing is this vídeo, explaining How to make an attractive city, by the School of Life. this video shows 6 topics about how a city can be prettier : not be so chaotic or so ordered must have visible life must be compact must have easy orientation and some mistery must have a ordered scale must have local places to go [Click to see the video] take a look and post your opinion maybe i make some posts like this one, what do you think about it?
  2. Hello everyone, Had a problem with SC4 Deluxe crashing to Desktop when I scrolled the view using the wheel on my mouse or used the + and-. Tried all of the step’ from STEX to no avail. I decided to uninstall the game and redownload it from GOG. When I first got SC4 from GOG I downloaded the game under GOG Galaxy, this time I downloaded just the game (2nd option). When I had GOG Galaxy installed, the game installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Gaxaly\games\SimCity 4 Deluxe, on the redownload it located the game to C:\GOG Games\SimCity 4 Deluxe. I checked the properties in the shortcut and in the Shortcut in the target it put “:\GOG Games\SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition\Apps\SimCity 4 .exe” –CPUCount: 1 –f. When I had the game From Galaxy it never showed this set-up it was all about the resolution. Also with the Galaxy version installed, I could never get the resolution set in the game. When I started the game after the reload the resolution was already set to 600x800 I have since changed the resolution. I am Running Windows 10 64 bit on an HP Pavilion Notebook Laptop. So if anyone is having the same problem hopefully the information I have provided will help you with your problems with the game crashing to the desktop.
  3. Speeding up the menu

    There is a clear 5-10 second gap between when I click on a menu. I think it's one of two issues a.) Just to much stuff in my plugins b.) BSC Farms causing lag in general. Any ideas on what it is and a possible fix?
  4. Hey there everyone. Just found out about this new airport building game (in actual 3d) which is looking very promising so far: I'm personally very excited about this game, wishing the crew from Lithuania the best of luck becoming the next Colossal Order. Here is there forum, it's not too active, but they do reply on occasion. http://www.realwelders.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3
  5. Make a wish un-corruptable!

    I'm sorry, is there a duplicate? from "a popular TBG". this is like Corrupt-A-Wish, except we share a single wish, and it must be un-corruptable. first, a person posts a wish, the next person gets to corrupt it. then, the next poster modifies the wish so it is immune to the corruption above. if you want to corrupt it, but you don't have ideas, you say it is not corruptable. rules: You cannot change the base wish. If you say "I wish I was good at RHW", you can't change it to "I wish I was good at region-building". However, you can only say "I wish I was good at RHW that doesn't limit me to RHW-4", if the pervious corruption said "Granted. You can only use RHW-4". Your corruption must be relevant to the wish. If it says "I wish I was good at RHW", you cannot say "Granted. It is impossible to build a region" Your modified wish should keep the previous corruptions from happening. e.g: "I wish I was good at RHW that doesn't limit me to RHW-4 and it is updated to the latest NAM and latest version", you cannot say it is corrupted: "Granted. You're using NAM 1" and "Granted. You have the first version" The specific corruptions "Granted, but it's only [small percentage - e.g. 0.0001%] more/faster/stronger/etc", "Granted but only for [small amount of time - e.g. 0.0001 milliseconds]", and "Granted, but in a parallel universe" are not allowed because they are unimaginative and could apply to anything Be imaginative. Don't repeat previous wishes. The 2-post rule applies here. And we start this TBG-inspired game with this wish! I wish I was good at RHW.
  6. Let's play a new game, a mix between a Show Us thread and a typical forum game. Game Rules: The first user posts an image of a city of their own, made on any city-building game (or even on another game that allows cities to be built), asking what the next person would fix or change on the image, with the idea of improving some aspect of it, to make it more functional, realistic, beautiful or fun. The next user has to propose a fix briefly, in no more than 7-10 lines (or in no more than 5 lines if including an image). The proposal has to be civil and constructive (even if literally consists on demolishing some structure). Remember that everybody is always learning and has the right to make errors. To finish their post, the next user has to include their own image of their city, to be fixed by the next user. If an image stays unfixed by five (5) days in a row, it will be considered as un-improvable, and the user will have won the round. Any other user could add their own image to restart the game. ____________________ To start, I'll put an old image of mine, even if that tile isn't active anymore. I choose it because that tile was super buggy and I had to remade it several times, so I'm curious of how much we'll coincide on this. So, what would you fix on this image?

  8. 2021 Update

    ((OOC: Note that I'm greatly simplifying how this game works. Instead of having formal politician and business characters, everything will be entirely informal. You want to be mayor? Want to own the most influential newspaper in the city? Want to be a mafia boss? Just let me know.)) Washington Redskins to relocate to New Washington In so many ways, the Washington Redskins are forever entwined with the creation of New Washington. The team was decimated along with Washington DC, and it's owner Daniel Snyder has been a key investor in New Washington. Today Mr. Snyder announced that the NFL team would officially be moving to the new capital city. The public is asked for their suggestions on a couple of questions: In which town/neighborhood should the stadium be constructed? (MAPS) Should the team be renamed? Please reply to this post with your opinion on the issues. Jefferson Memorial Completed Following a citywide debate and vote, the Jefferson Memorial is remaining dedicated to Thomas Jefferson. Also being added on the monument is the inscription: Town of "Biden" Established The town of "Biden" has been incorporated north of the White House.
  9. Jefferson Memorial Debate (2020 Update)

    Rulo selected for Capitol complex The designated growth area west and north of Rulo has been selected for construction of the White House, US Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and the Jefferson Memorial. The town of Rulo has quickly expanded to meet the National Mall. Protests shut down Jefferson Memorial A group of protesters have gathered at the Jefferson Memorial to prevent the completion of its construction. They are demanding that the Jefferson Memorial be renamed because of Thomas Jefferson's support of slavery. This has sparked a debate in the city on whether the memorial in that location should be dedicated to someone else. Please let your voice be heard in the poll attached to this post. Brenner Field becomes 1st official airport in district Brenner Field in northeast Falls City has been officially designated by the City Council as a city airport. Mayor Kevin Williams said at the announcement, "We hope that the airport's close proximity to the White House and Capitol will bring quick growth to what will likely become New Washington's downtown area." 2020 Business Update Industry Demand Utilities 2,116 Restaurant 506 Store 828 School 607 Medical Center 1,012 Office 83 Annual Company Financial Overview Company Player Industry Last Year's Cash on Hand Sales Profit Misc.

  11. Starting Maps & Business

    Washington, DC destroyed in terrorist attack On September 23, 2017, a terrorist detonated a suitcase nuclear bomb in Washington, DC. Aside from the massive casualties, the city will be uninhabitable for generations. New capital city location settled After months of political negotiations, the location of the new U.S. capital city has been officially announced by President Trump (who was in Florida at the time of the DC attack). There were many offers from various cities and states throughout the country, but the sparsely populated area along the Missouri River between St. Joseph, Missouri and Lincoln, Nebraska was the winner. This region was chosen for a number of reasons: Geographically central to the country Land coming from Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas A large area of fertile, sturdy land (over 5,000 square miles) with few inhabitants (less than 100,000 people) New Washington City Council structure announced The new Federal District will be governed by a 10 person city council with each member coming from a specific ward. The mayor is elected from at-large from all wards and serves as a voting Chairman of the City Council. All elected officials serve 2 year terms without term limits. The first official election is scheduled for 2020. In the meantime, the Governors of the respective states are asked to each appoint 1 person to a Planning Council that will meet until after the 2020 election. 2019 Business Update Industry Demand Utilities 1,955 Restaurant 468 Store 765 School 561 Medical Center 935 Office 77 Annual Company Financial Overview Company Player Industry Last Year's Cash on Hand Sales Profit Misc.

  12. This is probably a silly question, but here goes. I have city tiles within a region built with different game play parameters, i.e., PEGs MTP and or SPAM. Since the SIMS travel from city tile to city tile in search of jobs, etc., if I build another city without those mods (like the ones I just mentioned) will it affect game play. For example: One city has SPAM railroad stations while the new city does not as it's being built without the SPAM mod. Naturally, were I to open the previous city with SPAM removed the train stations won't appear (although a query on the blank area reveals what's hidden). But is this station also hidden to the SIMs? As I play the megatropolis city that isn't built with SPAM, will the SIMs still be able to take the train to the adjacent city tile that functions as the bedroom communities and exit the train at those stations? The reason I ask is the demand bar graph changes when I open the different city tiles. Wouldn't game demand be common throughout the region? Food for thought? John
  13. I have an issue at random times where when I save my city, it seems to take forever, except it did not. What happens is when I save my city, the dialog box that tells me that it was saved is invisible, hidden, or is behind the city itself. I cannot see the "city saved" box and at this point, the only thing I can do is just click everywhere on the screen of my game until I happen to click where the hidden dialog box is. This can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes to find this invisible dialog box. This gets annoying. Does anybody else have this problem? I have had this problem since the day I first started playing SimCity 4 in 2006 and it happens randomly since then. SC4Fix doesn't correct this issue apparently as well as a few other issues.
  14. Illuminati video game?

    Are there any video games where you play as the illuminati and take control over the world? Or something similar like the illuminati? Or does such an game not exist?
  15. Totalitarian dictatorship game

    Are there any games where you can be an totalitarian dictator? And Controlling everything and everyone? Yes i know Tropico is such an game, but you are only an dictator of a small Island, not really a powerful ruler. Are there any games besides the tropico series where you can be an cruel dictator? Any games where you can rule over more than just a tiny Island as a dictator?
  16. After installing the SimCity complete edition it loads till the page of Scenario Demo, when I click on "Get started" this message pops up "Unable to load at this city at this time, Please try again" error. tied multiple time to restart but it doesn't. pl help me by suggestions.
  17. First of all, I'm very sorry for letting this Indie project fizzle out a while back. This was due to CityBound, the other indie city-building project at the time, looking to be much more popular and promising. However, Avalon is going to get a reboot. With the advent of the wonderful Babylon.js WebGL engine, I've got renewed inspiration to make a indie City-building game, this time in full 3D, that will completely play in the web browser without having to download anything. I didn't want to post just screenshots, so a sample, 'read-only' town be found here: http://misc.blicky.net/c2/?id=1 (high-end desktop only) Note, it will be a bit laggy the first 10 seconds, its building paths and filling the streets and lots with cars. http://misc.blicky.net/c2/?id=1&highfps (high FPS version, still desktop only) This is of course very much a work-in-progress, rough around the edges and all, and I'm hoping for input from veteran city-building gamers to provide direction for this game. Here are some screenshots: disclaimer: I haven't actually played any city-building games in years myself, so I hope I'm not making a any developing faux-pas.
  18. Hey everybody.. Just wanted to float an idea that I have been brainstorming for a while.. It's a Stadium building game- As far as I know, nobody has ever done one. With the popularity of Football/Soccer/Baseball even Cricket and Rugby- Why is it you don't think there has ever been a stadium building / stadium management game created? The stadium would start as just a field, with some temporary bleachers.. Players could add concessions, sideline advertising, more bleachers etc. Bad management would lead to lower attendance (too many/too few concessions, restrooms in bad locations/ limited/ too many (cost over runs) . Aspects of the fan experience, such as comfort (add enough extra seatbacks if demand requires it, eventually Luge seating, and private boxes, that go all the way to VIP would be very expensive to construct, but good for high end donors) Video boards/ audio equipment should be an element to "entertain" the fans.. Of course, a good stadium layout, combined with good stadium flow (enough vomitoriums) and not too far a distance between rows and an exit/pathway should be considered, as well as line-of sight. Furthermore, building some sort of roofing for stadium might also be in consideration, increasing attendance vs. very hot/sunny, or rainy game days.. Simulated Game days would be a net gain/loss in total budget.. Parking/ shuttle services/ tailgating areas.. Creating very unique/interesting/ exciting stadiums of various types, all centered around the original field built would be very fun for most sports fans.. Why hasn't this been done yet? Anybody with a programming background interested in getting this going with me? It seems like an obvious game to make.. and a very fun one, slowly building the stadium from a prep/high school/ club level all the way to the biggest stadiums at the top levels? This could be a great game.
  19. Statistics - to be a science - needs a data base. You ask people, maybe 100, maybe 1000. And from this database you can estimate, like f. e. 60% of all people use their trigger finger to prick their nose etc. But for extraterrestial life - the times we live in - there is no such database. As the amount of known planets to carry life is exact 1. And a singularity isn't a data base. And that's all I can say about it. And all those "Ifs..." and "Whens .." are nothing else than expressions of a believe. Like the believe in a God. No difference. And all those scientists saying:_ "I'm convinced there is life in outer space" - they do this because they are reaching out for public money to do their expensive researches. I can't deny it and I can't confirm it. That's the only true thing to say about it. What is so difficult about to say: I don't know? ??? Browsing through the net I get the impression I'm the only person on this planet who's knowledge is limited. Mankind seems to know everything and there is always somebody who has an answer. No matter what you ask. As if this was the biggest taboo - to agree, there is no knowledge about it. That's why I thought off a really difficult question. Because it is a question you can't lie or trick about. You fail or you succed. So from time to time I do this question in social media - and I swear it is possible to answer this question right. There is no trick about that or a contradiction or something else. A very old man, long passed away, tought me the secret of it - no, no it's not that I found this myself. And be ware - to answer this question decides about who you are. About nothing else than the truth of your soul. It will show that, what you are made of. I'd long thought, how to question it here, in english - it's a little bit difficult. So please have some patience with me. Maybe it won't work, but I'll try. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** There is a very famous story - first time told by Dante Aleghieri in his book 'The Divine Comedy ', almost 600 years ago, but copied a million, milion times,. It is the story of Paolo and Francesca. And Dante meets them on his travel through hell. Before you think - gosh ... fary tales - this couple existed for real. If you think, I'm fooling you, please read here. To tell the story again, from my memories, in a foreign language, could cause missunderstandings, so please forgive, if I give a link instead. It is crucial you understand it well. So I beg you to read it, before continue. As otherwise the rest won't make any sense. The story of Paolo and Francesca. Understood? You may do questions and use furter sources and consult your teacher, your professors at university and everbody and everything - this is no closed game, no joke I'm doing here. Now Dante meets Paolo and Francesca in hell, and the hell - according to Dante - consists of circles. The closer you come to the center the more painful it is. If I remember right, Paolo and Francesca are in the circle of the adulterers, which is the fifth circel from (3x9 =) 21. Not that bad. A wind blows them around and around without any hold and Paolo and Francesca holding each other to not been blown away from each other. Dante tries to talk to them, which isn't easy because of them swirl all around, but then he does an interesting question to Francesca. He asks: "Where is your husband?" And she answeres he is on a much more inner circle of hell - as he murdered us. And murder is a much heavier crime than adultery. As this seems logical - this is only a trick by Dante Alighieri hiding the real, the important question. And he had to hide this question for real. If it would had been understood by his times what he is saying here - he most probably would have been burned. Therefore he had to hide his true messages very well. And this is: Why are Francesca and Paolo united, even if they broke the holy rules, by committing adultery? How can this be? Shure Francesca can't be united with her husband in hell as his crime is much worse than her crime. But this doesn't explain: why is she united with another man. Why she is together with Francesco - still the betrayer of her husband - united forever in eternity? How can this be? Why the rules of God seems to be broken here? Shouldn't they be separated in eternity as we are talking about a middle ages writing, where marriage was a holy bound? So maybe the question here is: What can overrule that holy bound? What has more power than the Devil (whirlwind) and even than God (marriage)- here, in this case, according to Dante. I never got a satisfying answer. You can try too. I won't blame you. You can use google and every other tool you like too. This isn't a game and there are no cheats available - as again, be aware: the answer you give will show where your heart is.

  21. Need help for logo

    Hello there o/, First of all, I tried to fit this into proper forum but apparently only off-topic works. As very few people on Simtropolis is aware, I am working on a browser game including city building elements and I want to incorporate visual style of Simcity 4. But first thing first, I need a logo so can have a website with dev blog. I decided to make a logo inspired by Yoni Alter's work But as this stage is very crowded , I consider a more plain yet "stuffed" enough one. My early sketches ( DISCLAIMER : Lousy sketch with eye bleeding colors and style ) are like this Second one is variation with "sea" Now what I am asking for help is, I got these buildings though Simtropolis and Google searches to vectorize lousy for quick sketch. But what I need now is buildings and vehicles you might recommend from STEX or other sources. I will be more pleased if they are of creators I can reach (although it's probably fair use, I prefer to ask for permission and alpha render for easier vectorizing) , btw. Thanks in advance and apologies if it's not proper. o/
  22. Another one bites the dust !

    Another one bites the dust ! Today on the Europa Anno I experienced again this perculier weather phenomina ! Thunderstorm coming ! And going 1 At last clear weather ahead ! Hope you enjoyed it !
  23. I'm getting rather annoyed by the game taking 5+ minutes to load and I sware I can remember there was a way to fix this, I think was some sort of program BSC made called "datpacker". But I am not 100% sure. Does anyone know how I can improve game loading speeds? I don't want to wait over 10 minutes to load my city anymore.
  24. Have anyone thought of making a team of people to make a new city building game? I know Boomtown was doing something and then I have heard nothing from them, and heard and did a little following of the City Bound game which is still at work. I just want to know if it's possible to get a team to make a city game in unity 3d.
  25. What if?

    Saw activity has increased a bit recently so here you go for a new game Every question has to start with what if or anything else basically meaning the same followed by an alternate scenario. Either you what would have happened if something wouldn't have been done in the past or how it would be today OR something that effects the future. Of course, the user posting after you has to answer what will happen/would have happened according to his opinion (yeah, funny answers are allowed as well). Of coursy, any Forum Game Rules do apply here. So let's get started: What if Dirk never came up with the idea of making Simtropolis?
