So in the course of reaching that goal of 500 Education, NOT using freeplay or unlimited simoleons, I created... Educopolis . An elementary school in every city block and a private school every second block, or near as I could get to it, plus a university complex second to none and quite a few libra...

See that? The Gold Medal for 500 Education is not there yet! Hum. Time to set out to achieve that! :cool:

The area near the Town Hall has been beautified with many artistic statues! The town expands some more with some Triple Decker housing for the residents attracted to the mountainous lifestyle with the occasional report of a creepy spirit or two. In slightly unsettling news, the denizens of the castl...

The town of Sim Lanka, as it has been named, has grown! There are now some cottages near a hedge maze, the area beautified by a giant mobile that spins on windy days. For those residents who wish more communal living arrangements there are a few apartment blocks near the cottages. Rounding out the b...

Sim Lanka [City Journal]

Once upon a time, in a mountainous part of the land, a small city began to take shape. But there were always strange rumors about that place. Rumors they told each other, of ghosts and efreets and spirits and other such denizens that flitted through the area, most notably near the castle ruin which ...

For Paint.NET users...

The latest version only lets you save TGAs in 24 or 32 bit format. The workaround:

1. Save as an 8-bit BMP file.
2. Use the program Easy2Convert to convert your BMP into a TGA.

Problem solved! :)

Thanks! :) Also, the .doc files appear to have been recovered! Better snag them in case anything happens.

Also, would anyone like me to convert them all into a big PDF for loading onto your ebook reader or what-have-you?

The question seems to be mostly moot since I had to switch over to Windows 7 from Vista, so between that and a new Catalyst driver (13.9, which fixes some bugs in 13.4 as well) it seems like whatever choppiness issues there were have been minimized. :) I'm still going to try WIC: SA at some point 'c...

How do I disable the check to EA's website? I want to just launch the game, not see web stuff anyway.
