City-building game(s)

  1. Let's talk about the Features Box, on the home page! What's considered a "Feature"? Anything that has to do with Simtropolis or city-building. Who can submit a Feature and how? Any member can submit a feature. Click the "Add Feature" button on the home page, and fill out the form. Once it gets approved, your feature will appear in rotation. Who approves it, and what's the criteria for approval? Me. I review each submission and approve them accordingly. The basic criteria is that it has to do something with SimCity, city-building (or Simtropolis) and it has to have a great compelling image. That really was the basic condition, but I'm now making things a bit more specific. It has to be about city-building (a city journal, an interesting discussion topic, a community event) and it must be exclusive to Simtropolis. It has to have a great image. For City Journalers, it now must include a shot of your city. You are free to photoshop and enhance it all you like, but it must have in-game shots, no matter how manipulated. As funny as some of the non-game images are, I will be considering them less, and may pass them by altogether. I will also favour captivating screenshots over, shall we say, less interesting ones, or obscure ones. Rule: Submit your best image (it's not always your funniest). Proper title, punctuation and grammar. For Journalers, a good title is more than just your City Name with a mundane description. Pump it up, a little, be creative, demand the viewer click it. Here are some examples of punchy titles... Main Street Up In Smoke... again Giant Robot seen absconding with hotdog stand The Landfill has Landed What's in your backyard now? A Smokey Tour of Stacksville Your pollution provider since 1959... So you get the idea. Make it fun, less mundane, it doesn't have to be earth-shattering, it can be as simple as showing off your new bridge, or stadium or park -- but give it a bit of punch than just "A new park..." How often are features approved and how long before I see mine? On average, I review and approve features twice a day. If there are a lot of features in the queue, you might not see yours for a day or two. If you keep seeing the same features over and over -- that usually means one of two things: 1. I didn't get around to it. 2., More likely, the well is dry. If that's the case, consider submitting it! Do I have to submit my own stuff? Nope! You can submit anything belonging to anyone. There's a field that allows you to attribute the feature to its creator/owner. It's entirely optional, if you don't attribute the submission to someone else, then it's automatically attributed to you. So, if you stumble across an awesome City Journal entry, and you think people should see this, you might either use one of the Share this links, or submit it as a feature. (Now, it's important that you attribute the feature to the owner to save yourself the embarrassment of accidentally attributing it as your own should you leave the field blank.) How do I know if my stuff gets rejected? If you don't see your feature after more than 3 or 4 days, it was not approved, sorry. I may send you a PM to explain why, or I may request something else of you. In Summary: Must relate to city-building, and/or be exclusive to Simtropolis.Must have a great image. City Journals must have in-game shots (photoshop, enhance, add text all you wish). I will almost likely turn down straight up comics.Submit anything, if you want to feature something that belongs to someone else, fill in the Author Attribution field - otherwise, you own it. Any questions, let me know. Thanks!!
