Re: What are you playing now?

It's been ten years since I've logged into this forum! I was watching a YouTube video about city builder games coming in 2020 and it made me wonder whatever happened to Tilted Mill. Many of the user names are familiar still. To answer the question for this thread, I still play C3. But most of my gam...

Oh lookie what I found: http://www.tiltedmill.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23535 I found the official Hinterland Facebook page. It's in dire need of improvement though. :( Thanks for the heads up! I became a fan but, you're quite right, it looks a bit neglected. It's a start, though.

Kinda defeats the purpose of a forum if everyone is going to read it by "remote control." I disagree. I'm active on another forum (Code Project) that has an RSS feed and it allows me to scan new threads for subjects of interest. When I see one I want to respond to, I go to the site, post and subscr...

Two Words for TM: Social Media

Jeeeez, I leave these forums for a few months (ahem, nine actually) and TM goes and releases a RPG/strategy game and I know nothing about it!?!? Yeah, I know, shame on me for not being here but here is a phrase for everyone at Tilted Mill: "SOCIAL MEDIA." I'd love to see you guys active on Twitter a...

Well I feel ashamed for many of the posters here who don't seem to try to talk with much civility. I was only trying to make a point which I found offensive, but many of you don't seem to take too kindly toward it. I feel sorry for many of you. While I appreciate that some of you chose to respond i...

I'm offended that you're offended! So stop offending people by being offended by non-offensive things. TM - I DEMAND that you remove this post because it has hurt my feelings! OK, now seriously... You must be living a pretty comfortable life to have time to invent such an inane issue. During this ho...

Commentary on Gaming Industry

I wasn't quite sure where to post this, since I think it pertains to at least a dozen threads around the various forums. A frequent topic of discussion (especially in the SC forums) is the general disdain for gaming companies "dumbing down" their franchises. While I'm neither condoning nor condemnin...

Anyways, it seems that some Civ fans are quite irritated with it though there's very little info released, the chief complaints are 1) too cartoony and 2) it's "accessible" so it's probably "dumbed-down." :rolleyes: Hmm, where have I heard that before?? Still can't understand why these situations i...

Yeah, about the highest praise you'd ever receive was, "This isn't such a bad city, really." Governing is such a thankless job. :(

How to "Escape the Rat Race"

Any of our European members who are looking to "get away from it all" might be interested in this job opportunity.

Just think of how many cities you could build in all that spare time - and get paid at the same time! :eek:

I'm really looking forward to this expansion. So many game expansions simply provide more of the same with a few bug fixes. This looks like the gameplay and strategy are going to be deeply enriched. Religion, IMO, was weakly implemented when compared to the profound historical implications it has ha...

I would rather they make Simcity 5, the improved and FINISHED version of SC4 (that was the problem, they never finished SC4 and as a consequence, was unnecessarily difficult (because you had to play around the flaws) which led to this situation). Yes, well that's it isn't it? I think that any reall...

But for you, Tilted Mill, it will mean you can pacify the hardcores while trying to sell them on trying out a new game (being a new game/franchise doesn't matter to newbies, but does matter to hardcores, think about it). Coming from a newbie-to-be (if there is such a thing), I think this is the mos...

Sorry to be the exception to that rule. I love Firefox, but there are some sites that just don't work well with it (like my web-based email). I guess that makes me ambi-browserous. :D

LOL - I love the reflections in the water. So *ahem* realistic *ahem*?

As governor I think you need to face the moo-sic; there must be an-utter way to guard your city. I can just see the inscription on your Triumphal Arch now... "Got Milk"?
