If you ask anyone who is Criterion Games, they will probably not know at all. Although, if they are a big gamer, they will know that the company has made Black, and the Burnout Series. As you know, the burnout series, and Black is mainly based on one thing, damage. You can cause so much damage on those games, it's not even funny. You can pretty much destroy everything in your path... http://game-era.com/review/id/12

Hi. I'm Adam and I am completely addicted to Sim City 2000. When I get home from work, I sit at my computer and play it until I get tired and go to bed. Some may say I have no social life (which is true since I work 2nd shift), but I say that I just like the game (that's what I get for having a huge interest in urban planning). Here's the city of Fishers Island that I created (based on Happyland), and have been working on for the last 2 years or so. It's my favourite city.

Here's the link to it, if you want to take a look at it.

Southern California's Inland Empire [09 Dec 2004|04:27pm]

What's up people. Sim City addict here. My current region is my second region, I restarted after Rush Hour came out, and it is based off a map of the San Bernardino/Riverside Metro of Southern California. It has a population of approximately 800,000 people which my largest city being about 280,000.

Hello, new member needs help! [20 Nov 2004|02:23pm]

Having not played SimCity for years, I splashed out on Sim City 4 (Mac), but I have a problem.

On loading a started Kensington City, the display is very odd. It's all dark with just a few blips of colour, no streets, houses, shops etc. As I move up and down I get flashes of what I expect to see but nothing more.

So I can't do anything with it. Ideally, i'd like to start off with a ready-made city, to re-learn how the game works.

Any ideas?

The Tutorial worked fine, as does the baby city first created.

SimCity 3000 [12 Jul 2004|11:16am]
Hi everyone; new here. Glad this is here. I just got Sim City 3000 last week and after a few failed cities, finally got the jist of it. I currently am working on a city; it's called Mavicus. Mavicus has 80,000 people and a very demanding citezenry that always wants taxes below 3%; as if 2% is too or something. Anyway, I've come into some troubling and puzzling scenarios.

I've read what the city planner says about zoning and creating sea ports. Mine is large enough, power, watered, roaded and on the coast. Despite industry demands to have further connections, the seaport is not developing. Crime is non-existent in the area. It's on low value land. It's got everything in right condition. WHat's further odd; I just laid down the first marina and with its inception, I noticed right off the bat, that boats started to appear. Not just sail boats, but cargo ships. There's five of them floating around out there and none of them are coming for the seaport.

Also. Am I correct in assuming that I can't pump places full of water if the pumps are connected to salt water. Well, if I put a desalinization plant on the coast, will that enable me to pump water to coastal places?

Also, I am having trouble building bridges. I've read what the city planner says about building bridges, but nothing happens. I drag the cursor over water; nothing happens. I click at edge of land and water; nothing happens. Is there something I am not doing right? I have to build a bridge to the other side of the river, because old city Mavicus has filled up and residential zones are in high demand. Plus, I'm fearing my population will decrease if I don't move over quickly, especially with a demand to improve the aura of the city.

New Member: Hey all :) [20 Apr 2004|11:42am]

Hi! Im imdaewen and I play Simcity (2000 and 3000 World Edition) and The Sims (up to Sims Unleashed). I do play SimCity 4, but that is on my friends computer because my one is just under specs for it... which is a pity.
Im addicted to building trees in my cities.... its best not to ask why though... I just like the sound they make when you plant them in 3K. Was a little disapointed with 2000.. it was okay but it was far too fiddly.
And I do miss the original SimCity...

I'm a bit of a disaster freak, I will just save my city and send a meteroite hurling towards it or a plague of locusts... and is it me or has anyone else spent hours just trying to get the aim of that meteorite just right... lots of fun... I just hope the real gods dont do that. :)

I will post some screenshots of my city up when photobucket is back up.
