Random Topics - SimCity

SimCity is an open-ended city-building computer and console video game series and the brainchild of developer Will Wright. It is published by Maxis (now a division of Electronic Arts). The game was first published in 1989 as SimCity, it has spawned several different editions sold worldwide. The ongoing success of SimCity has also sparked the release of many other spin-off "Sim" titles, including 2000's The Sims, the best-selling computer game in history.[1] In SimCity, the player is given the task of founding a city, while maintaining the happiness of the citizens and keeping a stable budget. In SimCity 2000, SimCity 3000 and SimCity 4, the player is allowed to alter the terrain of the city before building on it.

1 The recent SimCity game that came out a few days ago seems to be a huge boning moment for both the SimCity series and especially EA. For those unfamiliar with what's happening, the 2013 game requires an online connection to play. The problem? The game's server, which includes DRM, isn't working, so many people can't play it. Here's one of the many articles talking about it (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/09/arts/video-games/simcity-from-electronic-arts-plagued-by-server-issues.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0). It's gotten so bad that EA has suspended marketing for the game. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on March 8, 2013, 6:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 How to get a Megalopolis: It's been a while since I played, but IIRC, you can get one by creating LOTS of industrial zones. You can do this by designating one very large area (away from Residential or Commercial zones) to be all Industrial Zones. A landmass totally separated from the R and C zones by a river is perfect. First, build your city as normal, leaving the landmass alone for now (except to put a power plant there, away from people), and keeping the current I zones at least 6 or 9 squares away from R zones on the North, South, West, and East sides (the cursor is 1 square, and each zone is a 3x3 square). This includes rail or road, which each take 1 square. It's OK to place C zones between R and I zones. Try to keep the number of rail or roads minimum, while making sure each zone can be accessed by road or rail on at least one side. Make sure all roads and rails are connected to each other. When the zones are built up, start building I zones on the landmass (remember that pollution extends enough to affect the zones on the other side, unless they are 6 or 9 squares away (the river's width included). Use your cursor to measure how far the closest R zone is from the proposed I zone, and plan accordingly (if it's too close to an R zone, that's where you can build a police station instead). Make sure each I zone can be accessed by road or rail on at least one side (I prefer rail, as roads make too many problems). Ignore the complaints of pollution, but make sure there are enough police stations around the I zones, as crime will reduce the population. After some time, you should get a Megalopolis. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 29, 2010, 11:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I enjoyed SimCity on the SNES greatly, but no matter how hard I tried, I just could NOT make Megalopolis, either in a standard game or that scenario where it's 100% land and no water anywhere. The best I could do was a population of about 432,000 - then the ugly head of pollution vs. unemployment would arise and nothing I could do would satisfy the citizens. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 28, 2010, 8:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 One of my favorite game series. It's fun to make your own city. And what an accomplishment it was to finally get a Megalopolis on the SNES version. I can't say I really care about "The Sims", though. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 15, 2010, 10:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Me too, PYLrulz. It's hard to say which version is my favorite. The Super NES version was very good. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 26, 2010, 12:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Love the game. I always play it every once in a while when I get bored. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 25, 2010, 4:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
