Description of SimCity

In 1990, Maxis made the first and legendary Simcity, a city construction simulator. Starting in 1900, no buildings exists and you have to create road, create industrial and residential zones, school, police stations and much more to make you city grow.

Sometime you have to face natural disasters like a twister or a flood. In the free mode no goal is set, so the victory or the defeat does not exist.

You may also play a scenario where you have a limited number of year to change the city. Several problems exist : high criminality, traffic jams, nuclear disaster or very high unemployment.

The game was a big it and a lot of Sim games followed later on, though the second opus, sim city 2000, is seen as one of the best.

SimCity has the following addons available: SimCity: Terrain Editor, SimCity Graphics Set 1: Ancient Cities, SimCity Classic Graphics and SimCity Graphics Set 2: Future Cities, don't miss them!

*REVIEW*

Internally I began to barter with myself, unlike the probable bartering on the streets of Buttville, mine was not with items of physicality. Can I resurrect this once fine city? And at what price? Could I come out the other side of what’s probably the most difficult scenario Sim City could throw at me? “Yes”, I leaned forward in my chair triumphantly and grabbed the mouse.

System – New Game – Are you sure? – Yes

To fix Bern, google "Simcity Bern.psn". The first result should be from cd.textfiles.com. Download bern.psn and drop it into sim city's folder.

...The Bern scenario was missing on a lot of the pirate group releases. This is probably where this copy came from. No biggie, as the sim is still 100% playable without it.

How come the Bern scenario is missing???

The first episode of a successful franchise! This one is simple but is still fun :)
