    It's just spring, and already my neighbors have their air conditioners on. Ugh! New York, I wouldn't mind just a smidge of your weather.

    by NMUSpidey in Mar 25, 2015 - 09:38 AM
    While it has been a while since he has uploaded a file, our next BATer was creating custom content in our website's infancy. He was creating BATs before it was cool. Well, no, that's not true, creating BATs was always cool. Anyways, Sabretooth78's efforts center around the area he calls home in western New York state, with many BATs coming from...

    by SimCoug in Mar 21, 2015 - 06:29 PM
    Simtropolis’ very own AutoSaurus… T Wrecks is a giant in the SC4 custom content world (he even has his own theme song ). From recent hits like the game changing Industrial Revolution mod, to his prolific work with kurier.simcityplaza.de and NDEX, T Wrecks fingerprints can be found all over the STEX, and almost certainly in your very own plugin f...

    by SimCoug in Mar 21, 2015 - 08:42 AM
    NAM…Tarkus…Do we really need more of an introduction? Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past 12 years, the NAM (Network Addon Mod) is the single most famous addon for SC4… ever. And considering there are tens of thousands of SC4 custom files, that’s quite an accomplishment. Tarkus, who has been a part of the NAMsince 2007, was kin...

  • 100,000,000 STEX DLs Aaron Graham Interview!

    by NMUSpidey in Mar 11, 2015 - 08:53 AM
    Filling a much-needed niche, our next BATer focuses his energies on midrise, medium density apartment buildings. A man who calls Aaron City his home (or at least who calls his home Aaron City- it could just be a cute name), Aaron Graham's buildings are finely detailed and have proven popular over the years. His files collect reputation points li...

  • Cities Skylines review: This is the SimCity you were looking for

    by Dirktator in Mar 10, 2015 - 08:48 AM
    ---snip--- Bottom line Cities: Skylines is a great city builder. I still think my personal favorite is SimCity 2000 but at this point I can confidently say that's more because of nostalgia than because Cities: Skylines doesn't measure up. It does. Gigantic areas. Pretty tilt-shift post-processing. Offline mode. Curved roads. Interesting pollut...

    by SimCoug in Mar 07, 2015 - 07:35 AM
    Can you hear the steam hissing?

  • 100 Million STEX DL: An Interview with Paeng

    by SimCoug in Feb 28, 2015 - 08:10 AM
    The question gets batted around often enough, “I’m looking for city ideas, what CJ’s should I look through?” – The answer is usually a resounding “Journey through Paengia”.

  • 100 Million STEX DL: An Interview with madhatter106

    by SimCoug in Feb 25, 2015 - 11:15 AM
    Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea tray in the sky. Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter was quite the poet, but he probably couldn’t BAT his way out of a paper bag. Fortunately for us, madhatter106 eschews the poetry (at least as far as we know) and instead, dazzles us wit...
