No not the Sims, I hate those games. I'm talking about Sim City for your PC or Mac.

Our Tech project n school was to build and successfully manage a city for 300 years, so we played Sim City 2000 on a Mac. I was literally instantly hooked. I knew as soon as I walked out that class, I was going to buy it.

I just happened to go to Target, and just happened to see Sim City 3000 Unlimited on the shelf. So I bought it and have been hooked.

I've restarted my City four times now, but this time I think I got it. Sim City is a patience game. I realized as soon as they beg for something, they may want it, but don't need it right away. I spent money like crazy the first couple of times, but this time I got smart. Using that little "adjust your terrain" thing, I fixed up my terrain with no cost, which was cool. I zoned almost to perfection also. Now I'm in the year 1969, with $100,00+ and thriving. I haven't done much except for putting in some Alcatraz buildings, more zoning, and preparing. I'm saving up to put in an airport. Which once I got done estimating the figures, figured it would cost about $150,000 to put in the airport, and the highway. :shock: So yeah, I have some saving to do. :(

So have you played either one of these games? Do you possibly own one? If so, let's chat it up and share some secrets. :)

The original Sim City for SNES is the best one.

I never managed to get a megalopolis on it, but I got very close.

My brother had 2000. I never played it, the only one I played was Sim Town (the kids one) when I was like 10.

It sucked, because the most you could do in Sim Town is make "Eco Villains" while in 2000 you could have giant laser blasting eyes with spider legs, fires, tornadoes, and such.

On a related, yet obscure, note: Reticulating Splines.

I had a feeling you would post something about this, Truestar. Our time to play in school was quite limited, but I still managed to get 101,000+ people in 150 years. I don't even know if that's good, but it was still alot of fun. I actually had 3000 Unlimited prior to this, though I didn't play it much, since we had no room on our computer. However, I've recently been toying with the idea of re-installing it, now that I have a better sense of how to play. I'll think about it.
