Does any one still play SimCity 4
    #11388891 - 11/05/09 04:14 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I may get laughed right out of the forums for this one, but I am wondering if there are still any hardcore cult fans of simcity 4 still floating around.

it's funny, I have a bad ass tri-sli quadcore pc gaming rig with the baddest of the bad hardware, and well over 2 months worth of overclock work and customizations...

not to brag... cough, cough, Ahem.:rolleyes:



and the most clicked on game in my desktop is... SimCity 4 from like nearly 10 years ago. lol

anyone else still into this classic of a game.

I still love Sim City 2000, without the African Swallow speed setting that was added in the later edition. That speed setting didn't jive with me.

ya, especially with the old 200 mhz processors and 16 mb of ram back then, you would hit the affrican swallow and your computer would burst into flames! lol

then by the time you made it back into the game your city was 1000 years into the future and everything was dilapidated and abandoned.  :rockon:  good times

Intense computer you have there! 3-way SLI with GTX 285s... whew.. you should be playing games from the year 2027 on that thing not Sim City 4.

But honestly I just reinstalled Sim City 4 about a month or 2 or ago and gave the game another go.  Enjoyed it quite a bit... Had a successful city with a large population and positive cash flow.. which isn't really too easy to achieve in that game (at least compared to the other games in the series).

it just gives me a headache. lol.

I am an enthusiastic (compulsive) overclocker. so nothing tends to work all at the same time.

:shrug:

I haven't found a single game that it won't play at maximum settings with 1920x1200 resolution though.

I have 2 GTX 260s SLI'd and can say pretty much the same thing. Only thing that hasn't run completely silky smooth while maxed at 1920x1200 is Crysis, and maybe Cryostasis (can't recall how it actually was).

I might upgrade my GC in when DX 11 games are being released steadily.

yah, in all reality my computer is a bit overkill, cuz even when i just had my dual core e8400 with just two 285's it was chewing up crysis, and spitting out pong. lol.

but i had to go for the gold, cuz i am a compulsive overclocker.
for a while i had the highest 3dmark06 benchmark score on the nvidia slizone forums. gotta look for the actual score, haven't been there since january.

Jesus man, that's crazy. I'm guessing you built it yourself? Bout time I upgrade my computer, I'm running a ATI x850 XT, four years ago that videocard was tits! Nowadays its pathetic, but I'm looking to build a new budget one in a few months. I'm excited.

yah, it's all custom built, and overclocked from scratch; cpu, ram, and vid. cards.
even the cosmos case is upgraded for wiring the way i want it. Gotta love the dremel tool  :grin:

the funny thing is... my computer is getting to be old news, at my old forums that is.

it's still the tits shit by my terms, lol.
