How old are Sim City fans?

Postby JuliaSet » Thu Jun 07, 2007 3:56 pm

This poll is for the Sim City players. We had an age survey for the Citybuilders before, so how about letting us know a little more about you?

This is a multiple choice poll. Pick an age range AND a gender? (thanks for this line suggestion, MD)

Welcome to the TM forums btw.

Hi Poetic, I don't see it happening till something is official. They are probably contracted to silence till the official announcement. Making an official forum for something that's not official yet is not TM's way.

Do you like historical themes? Something that I'm wondering about for this game. What ever it is, I'm sure they will do it properly. I'm also wondering about min specs for the game. That is what cut sales for the previous releases. So many of the old citybuilders are NOT kids and don't rush out to buy a new rig every year.

Hi Julia, well the screen shot suggested some historical looking buildings. I thought they looked pretty nice. I don't know if those buildings are the standard or part of a specific set. As for the minimum requirements, the only modern 3D city building game I've ever played is City Life. The minimum requirements for City Life were as follows:

Minimum System Requirements for City Life

- Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 / ME / XP With DirectX 9.0c
- 1.5 GHz Processor or the equivalent
- 256 MB of RAM
- GeForce 4Ti or Radeon 8000 Video Card with 64 MB of RAM
- Sound card compatible with DirectX 9
- 2 GB free hard drive space

Recommended Configuration

- Windows 2000 Sevice Pack 2 / ME / XP with DirectX 9.0c or higher
- 2.5 GHz Processor or the equivalent
- 512 MB of RAM
- GeForce FX 5000 or Radeon 9000 Video Card with 128 MG of Ram or better
- Sound card compatible with DirectX 9
- 2 GB free hard drive space

I'm sure we'll hear word soon on SCS minimum requirements.

I am looking forward to the SimCity game for two reasons. The first being that having a sequel to SimCity 4 will be nice, I hope they do include Sims in this version if for only for having people walk the streets and going in and out of buildings. The second reason being I love Tilted mill and the city builders they have come out with. So for me this is a good transition I also forgot to say that I have been wanting a modern city builder from Tilted Mill.

Also I am In 20 something range and have been playing simcity since simcity 2000

23 here, SimCity fan since the original PC release for my DOS box. It's safe to say I understand the game a lot better now than I used to.

I am 24. I played Sim City with my dad when I was a child. I was then introduced to Sim City 2000 when released. When Sim City 300 was released I was finally able to buy my own comuter games for my own computer and bought that the week it was released. Sim City 4 I bought the day it was released.

I am eagerly awaiting information about Sim City Societies as it gets released... I wish, o how I wish I knew everything now!! I am sure it will be a great game and hope that a bond between developer and community can be formed. I felt totally ashamed over the past couple of days. But, the seas seem to have calmed for now.

Good luck with the new forums and thank you for welcoming us even after the outrage of a small part of our community.

SimCity has been my favorite game franchise for many years. I remember finding SimCity 2000 at a garage sale in 1994 and asking my mom to buy it. She did, but said that, "If you end-up not playing this, I'm never buying you another game". I played the heck out of it, spending hundreds of hours perfecting my cities. :p

I'm 20. I started playing the SC series with the original for DOS. I was too young to know how to operate DOS, so I needed someone to help me. And then of course every time I played, I would start by plopping the airport, and then running out of money. :)

It's funny because I remember the SC2000 graphics looking good , and I remember being blown away by SC3K, and then blown away again for SC4.

I also remember the first few days and the last days of playing the games. I remember playing the demo for SC3K a billion times, trying to play faster so that I'd get to see more of the buildings. And I remember my first real city from the game, and learning how to get a handle on it. I remember the building editor for SC3K, making some buildings with it and then giving up because it was really bad, lol.

ahhh, memories. :o

Nuh-uh, don't lie to the nice new people Glenni. You are feared because you might be an angry Viking. That's the reason you might go around flaming everything from developers to rich convents, not because you're sixteen. ;)

I'm nineteen by the way. (But as they say: My mind is older.) :cool:

Hi Mouse!

I'm used to playing/testing/competing with the young males in Civilization4/Warlords/BTS. Nothing like some testosterone to keep us "mature" folks hopping. Acually it is nice but so tiring.

We are not as young as Imageir David. I think he wanted me to add a younger catagory. Image

Well I'm 34, and my first child was born a month ago. I can clearly remember my first experiences playing the original Sim City and Civ 1, bloody years ago. But can I remember what I did yesterday or where I put the car keys this morning? Can I buggery! :)
