    SimCity 4 is a game that appeals to people living all over the world who want to build cities in wildly differing styles. Some have added content to enhance American-style building all the way back to colonial times. Others have created BATs for building classical European towns. Our next interviewee helps to make this possible with his incredib...

    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 - 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...

    Can you hear the steam hissing?

    Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea tray in the sky.
