Quote from: woodb3kmaster on January 06, 2010, 12:36:08 AMThe first 21 months of gameplay, which began in June or July of year 150, there were no zots at all and therefore no abandonment. In fact, I saw many abandoned buildings get repopulated, and many dilapidated buildings upgraded, in some cases to their original wealth level. Beginning in April of year 152, however, the all-too-familiar 9-to-11-month cycle of zots and abandonment in the northernmost fourth of the map returned. The first such cycle was pretty mild (i.e. there was little abandonment), but the second was by far the worst. It looked as if almost all of the lots in certain areas were abandoned. I was relieved, though, to see that many of the lots abandoned in this cycle were repopulated, in some cases at their original wealth level, within a year or so of their abandonment - this recovery came far sooner than it did in previous playing sessions. After that, the areas plagued by cyclical abandonment shrank with each successive cycle, and by the end of the session in June 160, the zots had stopped appearing in the north-central part of the map entirely (much to my relief, as there are several residential mega-lots in that area).
QuoteMy next step will be to expand the subway system in the problem areas, since the addition of the orbital line helped reduce abandonment.
QuoteThe city suffers from the 'eternal commuters' syndrome (verified with the Census data), since it has two neighbor cities and many Sims travel in triangular fashion between them. I mention it, since it may have an effect on some test results.

From my short experiments, it seems to run SC4 fine. And since it uses hardware virtualization, I would expect it to be much faster than Wine.

Quote from: tamorr on January 11, 2010, 05:05:25 PM I was wondering what Dataview I should be using for the Euro v2.1, would the ones included in the standard v2.0 be fine? I can't really do any testing, but I know that is the one I'd like to use when I do intend to play, or rather am able to. So which Dataview should I be using?
QuoteThanks for all your hard work.
