  1. https://nyti.ms/2Fgdcdp Many tech companies are building campuses near research universities far away from California. It’s no surprise to me because San Francisco has the highest rents in the world and California is prone to natural disasters. Besides economics and weather, the Midwest has more innovation, a lot of unused infrastructure and more moderate and diverse politics. For anyone besides a diehard progressive liberal, San Francisco can look like Hell. Even Amazon is expanding into the Midwest despite Seattle and Bellevue having more construction, lower prices, and better transportation than San Francisco and LA. Just to be clear, NY Times has a soft paywall.
  2. The way streets and buildings are arranged makes a big difference in how heat builds up.
  3. Hopefully this thread will generate a few ideas of how to deal with articles on the internet and quality of especially scientific information we consume. As the false news and false science movement/industry explodes, its a good idea to generate some criteria to keep the focus real. Simply, look for any link or reference to any reputable source of data, research, and cross-reference a few sources. Always have several different sources and wait for them all to report on the same topic. The theory is that even if there is a bit of 'fudging' of information between reputable sources, it will be easy to see what is consistently not 'fudged'. If an article makes conclusions not based on the actual data referred to then assume the conclusion is false in the sense that it is an opinion, but not a scientific one. A journalist may have science credentials but more likely the reason why they're not employed as a scientist is because they're not very good at it, so they get jobs as journalists and make up scientific opinion based on their political beliefs or financial stock options. Always assume politics and business are anti-science. Science generally promotes independent and thorough critical thinking. Politics and business rely primarily on helplessness, dependency, deference to authority, and mass confusion. Look for omission of information. What critical information is missing in an article, what questions would you have beyond the conclusion that you are being led to believe is a final authoritative opinion or fact. Don't bother using comments to protest or challenge the falsity, comment areas are part of the operation of keeping you hooked on false news and false science. The best way to retaliate or challenge is to participate in reputable news and science venues so to build strength of real news and science over the false. If any news agency promotes themselves as The Most Reputable, The One That Most People Rely on, assume every story they report is a fraud in progress. And most of all "Disobey Television" Meaning, disobey the prima facie evidence or fact presented by any media. In the event of requiring information regarding any emergency situation, go directly to a reputable science data reporting site.
  4. Update & Plans

    As you may know I've haven't posted in this city journal for a year now.Now I am planning to resurrect the project.However I will have to do a ton of research since I've changed the setting to the Pacific Northwest United States.I will still continue my other projects but in the meantime I will try to get something out within the next 2 weeks or so if possible.New Lanchester will have it's name changed to something else maybe or maybe not.This will a small city so don't expect some real tall towers.Also feel free to ask any questions.
  5. Some disappointing news :(

    As of September 10,2017 I have decided to scrap Arden County for an unknown amount of period.The reason for it is because I want to try out building European cities.Another reason is my computer has reached it's limits on the city.I know this is very saddening but one day I could revive this project.
  6. Some really bad news :(

    As you may know,all of my saves were suddenly deleted out of nowhere.I had hundreds of hours placed into Arden County only for it to suddenly vanish.The worst part is there's no recovering it so I have to restart.
  7. Hey guys ! This topic is made just for you. (!)Posts are going to be edited a lot so make sure to come often. I will mark new edits with a "!" Here we are going to talk about : - News about the SimCity Revive project - Screenshots of the mods - Comments about SCRevive - Q&A allowed! - Requests for the project
  8. Bad News guys

    Everyone who has been following my Arden County project,I've planned to stop working on this until I get equipment that can run this game without issues.For now I am shifting my focus onto European Cities for now.I plan to use less assets than I would use in American cities.
  9. Guys I have an issue

    So I've played around with the disasters and didn't realize I saved the game while it was Occurring.I have forgot to make backup saves,Now I can't turn off the disaster and I might have to restart everything!Damn I have some bad luck.
  10. Bad News

    Bad News So as you guys know I've upgraded my video card and guess what happened.The city won't load up even when i upgraded.I have tried everything,downgrading settings and deleting other saves.After so many issues and reducing settings,I've finally decided to shut down the project for good.I'm sorry but I had no choice because no solutions worked.

  12. Ibero-American Politics

    Attending at the growing number and activity of Spanish and Portuguese speaker forumers on the last months, and the convoluted events on our countries, this thread is opened as a means to have friendly and civil discussions about politics and policies. Of course, all forumers are welcome, no matter their origin. As my RL career is mainly focused this issues, I'll try to update the thread regularly with news briefs, but your help with that task would be well recieved. Also, to keep an amicable ambient, here are some convivence recommendations: Prefer English, but don't be shy: English is a lingua franca we all can use and is understandable for all forumers, inviting them to participate here; nevertheless, if you don't find the right words, write it in your native tongue, we really want to know your ideas. Also, online translators are always a good help. Keep arguments concise: while is true one can talk about politics for hours, most ideas get lost on more than two paragraphs; try to mantain a conversational style. Assume good intentions: if you see something that could offend you, first think: could this be just a misunderstanding? could I improve things by taking the offense? Don't stay shut, but remember that is easy to express oneself in a confuse manner. Use data, don't believe on it: statistics are very useful to get a hold of what's really happening, but they are human-made measures that are prone to error and diverse interpretations. Show us the numbers but remember we can see different things on them. Understand political beliefs and cultures: our local cultures and political beliefs are very deep rooted and cherished, don't try to bluntly change others', talk about them in a respectful way and comprehend dissent. Welcome our friends from the world: lets keep this thread open to all forumers by using an open language, explaining context and references, and being available to answer questions.
  13. Shooting in the olympic shopping center at Munich, Germany. Some media report of eleven death, others about three. Underground stopped for the whole city. Central station closed and evacuated. Officials fear - this could be, like Paris, the beginning of a series.

  20. Trust and Broadcast News

    There have been a few cases recently of news anchors and other sources being found to have feet of clay, to say the least. Let's have everyone's opinion on news sources and correspondents. I'll start by saying that I take all news with a grain of salt, and sometimes a whole salt lick. My usual sources are CBC.com, BBC.com and occasionally CTV.com, and I try to read between the lines on them when they report the same events. Broadcast news anchors on these networks have actually been reduced to script-reading employees in most cases as all of the reportage seems to be filtered by an editorial overlay related to their advertisers. I occasionally watch some of the one-on-one interviews, but even these are recorded and edited. Maybe at my age (77), I've become somewhat cynical, but I wonder if we ever will find out the truth of anything?

Monday 3 November 2014: News Brief #50 The Fancy Feastery in Cave Canem, Central Mookimia, the largest canned cat food factory in Schulmania, has been set ablaze! Protective Forces personnel are on the scene trying to contain the blaze before it destroys the building and its stockpile of Fancy Feast. Fire Marshal Bill told local media that workers fleeing the building report that the fire started in the breakroom. Apparently, a worker put a bag of catnip flavored popcorn in the microwave and left it unattended when distracted by watching birds out the window. The Protective Forces fire brigade is on the scene Fire Marshal Bill reports no casualties, but it appears that at least some of the Fancy Feast in the factory has suffered smoke or water damage. The fire may result in a shortage of key flavors of canned cat food nationwide. The Strategic Fish Reserve in East Kolibri may be called upon to keep the supply of tuna, sardines, and salmon steady until the crisis is resolved.

  22. Tycoon News

    Hey all! It's been a very very long time since I spent time in these forums. In fact all my old post and city journals don't show in my history since the forums have been overhauled once or twice since I posted them. But I wanted to share my news series I've been working on for a while since I think you'll find it informative. It covers city-builders, management simulations, and general tycoon games. Here's the episode for this month: And if you enjoyed that, here's the full playlist. I'm always looking to improve the quality and content of these videos, so if you have any suggestions, let me know! -Zhatt

  25. Version 1.1


    FANTA1990 Presents: A much needed facelift for all three municipal helicopters inspired by designs from Emergency 4 (aka 911). The Police Chopper brandishes a blue and white paint job with matching decals and a gyrating inset tail rotor. The Medical Helicopter gleams with two-tone emergency orange markings and bold black insignia on the either side. The News Helicopter boasts a red, white, and blue pattern with inset tail rotor and elaborate emblems. Each bird features exquisite detail including wider blades, distinguishing runners, and tinted windows. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's an easy way to improve the realism and appearance of the game's otherwise mostly siloughetted renditions. Choose from the following two files: Emergency4 helicoper.rar - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects. Emergency4 helicoper-256.rar - May be used with Software Acceleration. *** A version of this mod containing a police chopper with a functioning search light (as pictured below) is featured on the developer's website here: http://http://www.SimCity.cn/thread-123675-1-1.html *** This mod was originally posted along with many other spectacular creations by Fanta Soda on his SimCity China homepage with the following URL: http://www.SimCity.cn/thread-99303-1-1.html Fanta has taken great lengths to make his site accessible to English speaking users.
