      Outages - STEX & Gallery Offline - Last Ditch Effort   09/22/2018

      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. Hank Haney's World Golf

    One of the best golf simulators next to Tiger Woods PGA Tour series. What made this game stand out was the customization. Literally, every single object can be customized or added in the simulator, player skins, golf balls, courses, logos, flags, clubs, 3D objects. Gameplay I’m surprised this game wasn’t more popular, but I think what destroyed the popularity was the difficult swing mechanics. You have the option for four different swing types: 3-click 2-click Vertical mouse Horizontal mouse There are no stats in the game, but when you create a golfer, a slide determines how accurate your golfer is, or how much distance he can hit the ball. Don’t worry, you can go back into the “Create Player” tab and change this slider all you want. I managed to overcome the difficult swing mechanics, by constantly adjusting the slider to get a pattern that matched my method of play. As most golf games, this has a total of 9 game modes... Stroke Stableford Modified Stableford Practice Match play Skins Nearest to the pin Longest drive Multiplayer Note: multiplayer has Internet and LAN server options, all the games mode listed above can be played in multiplayer. Also, there tons of courses to play, 20 full 18 hole (fictional) courses are included, with more to download online (Only if I could find the website; look at the company’s, but no luck). Another interesting part, aside from regular courses, you have the option to play on Par 3 and crazy golf courses. If you have a good enough graphics card, the draw distance allows you to see the entire course in your view. Course editor One of the best course editors I have seen in a golfing simulator! You can customize the layout, terrain, panoramas, and even change the physics for each texture. If you have picture editing software like Photoshop, you can make your own textures to use for your course. It’s very simple to use, just press and hold the space bar to draw the shapes you want, then you select what type of object you are creating. If the shape isn’t perfect, you can change it by selecting and dragging the control points to the desired direction. Pins can also be customized, from color to the flag image displayed. If you have 3D modeling software, adding your own 3D objects for use with the course editor should be easy (don’t know what the file type is?). There are tons more features I could list, but that list would be HUGE, but these were the best to create a fully customized course that you can share with friends! If I were to rate this game, here would be my verdict. Gameplay 7.5 – Real-time passing of time – choose a tee time and watch it go from morning to evening. Swing/ball physics 5.8 – Swinging can be very difficult, but if you can find the correct position for the slider, you can get good playing scores. Course editor 9.0 – It’s almost perfection! So many options to customize, but occasionally editing terrain can be challenging, especially when the camera is in real-time isometric; takes practice! Graphics 7.0 – the graphics that come with the game are decent enough, especially if you have an advanced video card, but when you make your own players or course, the images can be as realistic as you want. Audio/music 6.5 – the sounds of hitting the ball are clean and crisp, but the same for audio is the same for graphics, you can change the sounds in the files or the course editor to how ever realistic you want. Overall 7.8 – A great game to customize, almost more fun than playing the game. At a price of $10 dollars US on Amazon, it won’t be a huge loss if it’s not what you hoped it to be. http://www.amazon.com/Hank-Haney-World-Golf-Pc/dp/B003NS3KAI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354639983&sr=8-1&keywords=Hank+haney%27s+world+golf If any of you are wondering, yes, here are some gameplay videos, this one made by Dmitry Cheva.
