Title: Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D

Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D is a weekly list of Mayor Diaries ranked according to a formula. The main component of the formula is non-author, unique replies to author post ratio. The formula does reward consistency, and uses a four week rolling average - the current week has the most influence, with influence decreasing from the three previous weeks. Each week the top ten MDs will be featured with a background image from the number one MD. I'm also tracking positions 11-20 - these will be noted as the +10 in numerical order.

As with my other Top Tens, I am going to start by back-tracking very slightly to 22 Dec 2011...

Congratulations to the first number 1 -  Corsica! I wish that was where I had spent Christmas...

I'll be back in a few days with more. Please don't hesitate to inform me of any typos, spelling errors.

Very interesting list Ben. 
Must have taken you a bit of time to apply that formula to each and every MD. 
Great work!

Looks good idea.

I would put only the 5 first MDs as there are few MD still alive and I afraid of seeing always the same MDs in disorder in this ranking

Post by: rooker1 on January 03, 2012, 02:21:49 PM
Good idea Girafe, but unfortunately Ben's Top Five doesn't have the same ring to it as Ben's Top Ten
I would agree with excluding the 11th position and on though.

Don't exagerate, Antoine, there's quite some MDs active around there. ;)

Good idea, Ben. I've seen your thread over at ST and I liked the idea.

Interesting idea! :thumbsup:
I have recently seen at Simtropolis, but there I don't know most of the MDs. Here I know almost all the MD so I'll follow the topic. :)

Hi, rooker1 and Girafe. Thanks for your comments. Over the last 4 weeks around 40-50 MDs have been active, which I feel justifies the +10. I'll see how things go and assess trends over time. When I started my second BTT over at ST the same CJ was number one for the first 13 weeks - and it was competing with 200 others, so you never can tell what will happen which is all part of the excitement. The formula is also set up so that even a brand new MD can compete with a Hall of Famer.

Hi, Dai9988. Thank you for your support!

Hi, art128. I think you'll like today's update even more  ;)

Hi, Kergelen. Thanks for your comment and support.

Hi, Schulmanator. I am excited, too - always fun to start something new, and it will be interesting to see how it works out.

Hi, bat. Glad to see you here, thanks for the support.

Ben's Top Ten

Going back just a week ago and Homura Region jumped up to be the new number one!

There are two new entries: Nagagonia in at 9, and Tarkusian Cities in at 10. 

I'll be back in a few days with this week's update.

Hi, art128. It may have been a surprise, but it was clear from the results last time who the crowd favorite was.

Hi, rooker1. Thank you for your support again, Robin!

Hi, DerChrischi. Well, if your MD is popular during the previous week it will go up, otherwise down. Glad you liked it.

Hi, bat. I was also looking forward to seeing the first winner of the year... wait no longer!

Ben's Top Ten

Just like last time, there are two new entries and a new number one!

Congratulations to AntigOne's Project! Most of the time when I choose the image for BTT I have a favorite in mind, but badsim made it very hard - far too many great ones to choose from!

The two new entries are The region of Pirgos at 7, and Santa Barbara County at 9. 

Have a great week, everyone!

I like that you include BTT +10, thus some regions that aren't in the Top Ten, know where we are.
The top ten are great regions!
Fantastic job benedict! :thumbsup:

This really has been a nice addition to the site! Thanks  :thumbsup:  On congrats on a nicely-deserved K-point!

Perhaps I'm a bit biased because I seem to keep doing so well though  $%Grinno$%  I was actually scared this would be the week I fall of the chart but I ended up in 2nd! By the way, the Roman numerals in my MD are for the number of the update so you can just list mine as "Siilijoki".

Congratulations RickD  &apls

Hi, OI.S / Benoit. Well, if you are consistently in the Top Ten during the year, you will do very well at the year-end chart. But maybe you'll want to look down...

Hi, Yan077. My favorite saying regarding BTT is that the fate of all MDs is to go up or down. This week, you're back up.

Hi, bat. Thanks!

Hi, rooker1. Thanks! And thanks for the Karma point - not sure what that means exactly, but I am sure it is good karma!

Hi, art128. Thanks for stopping by last time.

Hi, Kergelen. Glad you like the list.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks for the encouragement. I have fixed your MD name, I had no idea that those reflected update numbers :).

Hi, dedgren. Thanks for your comment. I'd like to thank everyone who has been so welcoming and supportive of bringing BTT to SC4D.

Hi, vortext. Well, an MD would be the only way to get on BTT ;)

Hi, Pat. Thanks!

Hi, RickD. Good work last week!

Five weeks of BTT @ SC4D and five different number ones!!!! I don't think that has happened on any of the BTT versions. Congratulations to Med. Inspirations!

Have a great week, everyone!

Hi, rooker1. Thanks! And thanks for the Karma point - not sure what that means exactly, but I am sure it is good karma!
Karma points are handed out by moderators and admins (or on behalf of any member of SC4D, providing the moderator or admin. agrees) for doing exceptional things here on SC4D.  I think what you are doing is exceptionally good for the site, so you get a positive Karma point. (I don't think you need to ask how you get a negative one.) ::)  Anyways, thank you very much for doing this chart.

Five weeks of BTT @ SC4D and five different number ones!!!! I don't think that has happened on any of the BTT versions.
I think this will happen more often than not here.  From my experience, peoples lives change so dramatically from week to week.  Some weeks members will have several updates and than a period of time will pass where there will be no updates.  Most of the MDs here have a great following that when these changes happen the MD followers are very happy when there is an update after a long period of time. ;)

 I find it very interesting to follow stats like these, especially about myself.  So when I see that I have made it onto your list (whether top 10 or top 20) over the last 5 weeks, I'm fairly happy with myself. ()stsfd()

 Congrats to everyone that has made the list and to those that have not, I'm sure you just need to try a little bit harder. :thumbsup:

I'd like to add that patience also really pays off. Sometimes great updates just end up getting missed, even for MDs that have an established following. With persistence though I promise that your hard work will get the recognition it deserves here!

Hi, apeguy. The formula applied to MDs for Ben's Top Ten is mostly reflective of popularity over the previous week (with some influence from the previous 3 weeks). It is possible to enter BTT in an MD's first week of creation - see below. And well done last week and this week.

Hi, bat. Thanks again for your comment and support.
__________________________________________________________________________
Ben's Top Ten

This week we have something different - Rondnoir held on to the number one spot!

Waldey enters at 8 in its first week - well done. Eloaria is new at 9.

Thank you.  :)
With all due respect, I think you're missing the point of BTT and taking it a bit too personally. Ben's rankings aren't based on his personal opinions of MDs; in fact, they have nothing at all to do with the perceived quality of an MD. These rankings are simply a measure of activity in the MDs - how "busy" they are. It's not a reflection on how "good" your MD is, or on the amount of work you put into it. And it certainly isn't meant as a comment on your personal worth, in case you're interpreting it as such. :)

As for "competition", that's simply a matter of attitude. Just because the rankings exist doesn't mean that you have to try to be #1. If you'd rather not compete, all you have to do is not treat the rankings as a competition.

I hope you found this post encouraging. I'm only trying to be helpful. :)
Title: Re: Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D
Post by: noahclem on February 05, 2012, 03:18:29 PM
Ben also gives a lot of effort into his lists and I think it's been a great contribution to the site. Other MD authors also put great effort into their work. Their is no escape from being categorized as "Recently Published", "Best Seller", or "Classic", though those are categories you've moved rapidly through. Ben himself is the ultimate judge on this but I don't think it makes much sense to avoid being classified here either.

Post by: Dantes on February 05, 2012, 03:29:58 PM
Hello you,
I take the statistics personally.  :) I would not only be competitive in Totori with other players.  :-\  My MD is small, fine and is less about the big MD. 
I will ask for your understanding and respecting my desire not to appear in the statistics.  :thumbsup:


Dantes
Title: Re: Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D
Post by: woodb3kmaster on February 05, 2012, 04:08:49 PM
Hello you,
I take the statistics personally.
You don't have to; again, it's a matter of attitude. In my experience, it's not a good idea to take things personally that aren't meant to be personal. It just leads to unhappiness. The good thing is: you can choose for yourself how to react to Totori's ranking. It's entirely up to you. :)

However, if you really can't get over your ranking, there's an easier solution that doesn't force anyone to do anything: You can simply not visit this thread. If you don't know your ranking, it can't bother you. Besides, it's not like anyone is going to post it in Totori.

Again, I'm only trying to make you feel better. I mean you no harm. :)

(One final thought: There are over 60 active MDs here, which means you ranked higher than about 75% of all MDs. You even outranked my MD. There's a bright side to almost everything. :) )
Title: Re: Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D
Post by: Ol.S / Benoit on February 05, 2012, 04:16:50 PM
Rondnoir is in a nice shape these times ! :)
Congratz all, I'll try to comment the MDs as soon as I can... And also post an update for Med Inspirations, maybe !  &mmm
Great work again Benedict  :thumbsup:

Dantes : You should not take the statistics personnally... It does not make any sense...
Also do not forget that this is a rate between the MD owner posts and others posts, so it doesn't mean your MD is not good or not active. Your MD is a good exemple as long as you post a lot of updates, so maybe you have less comments/updates than others, but are statistics so important ? Your MD is great, big, and one of the most active here... We all know you give a lot of efforts, most of us told you about that in your MD thread, and I think that you should just consider this point, but not statistics.  ;)
Anyway, keep it up :)

Folks, and in particular Ben (benedict) and Dantes, I'd like to join in Zack's (woodb3kmaster) initial comment here, which has now been followed by similarly insightful posts by Noah (noahclem) and Ol.S Benoit.  I used to, way back five and some years ago over at Simtropolis, do a similar "ranking" of City Journal activity there.  After 3RR settled here at SC4D, our great friend Dustin (thundercrack83) picked the concept up and ran with it for many years in the form of "The SC4Devotion Mayor Diary Statistics," which more or less had the site's semii-official blessing, as an area on the Mayors' Diaries subforum was created for it.  RL keeps Dustin from keeping up the statistics these days, and so Ben's "Top 10" list has, as a similar effort, now been placed in that area.

Whether it was/is Dustin, Ben or me, the rankings in the various threads have never expressed an opinion.  They are simply based on a straightforward calculation of views, posts and other activity.  Some folks, me included, find them fun to read from week to week just to get a quick handle on where things appear to be going on.  That does not mean, though, that I base my personal opinion of any MD on how busy or not busy it is.  I see updates in MDs I consider wonderfully deserving of accolades in the form of huge numbers of posts and views go seemingly missed or ignored.  On the other hand, some offhand comment by the author of a MD will every so often generate a huge and, in my mind, completely disproportionate response.  Zack's advice is sound.  If you find the "Top 10" list upsetting or you feel Totori isn't getting its due there, just don't read the thread.  Use the time to work on your MD, for that matter.  I am a huge fan of Totori, and it is on my personal "list," but I am not in the list business these days.  I can bet, though, from the reader comments you see there, that there are a lot of folks who agree with me.

The bottom line here is that everyone involved is making a contribution to the site and to the community.  Yours, Dantes, is a great MD.  Ben's is an interesting and fun summary of recent activity in the site's MDs.  I would hope that you can see fit to just allow Totori to garner the posts and views that it does for its own sake, and whether it winds up on on Ben's list in a given week or not doesn't really matter.  Authors of Mayors' Diaries, as I have noted elsewhere, are only competing, at the end of the day, with whatever personal standards the author chooses to set.  Yours in Totori are at the highest levels, and your achievements there show that you are serious about exceeding them.

Zack, a K-point for your timely and astute comment.

Hello you,
the stupid Google Translation has made ​​a mistake.   :angrymore: I mean I do not take personal statistics. I ask the Totori not found in these statistics. Alternatively, other like to appear in the statistics.  :)
To me it's not about to be particularly active in a competition with others. I just want to have constructive criticism, and regular readers. I do not want to appear in the statistics with my MD.

Thanks

No problem, Totori won't be listed from now on. If you change your mind, Dantes, send me a message and I will add you back.

Hi, Dantes, woodb3kmaster, noahclem, OI.S / Benoit, dedgren, rooker1. Thanks you all for putting across your various points of view. While I personally think that Totori is excellent, and has made appearances in the Top Ten (and +10), the list is meant to be fun or at least interesting, and if someone is not interested in taking part I am fine with that.

On with the show! And this week has another first for BTT @ SC4D - a CJ has debuted at number one in its first week - well done to Empire Bay! Congratulations to RickD on a second number one CJ.

I always like the weeks with the 3 different stars represented. The region of Pirgos is back at 9, and Tales at Teatime is new at 10.

Have a great week, everyone!

Hi, threestooges. You're welcome. And thank you - I think consistency on my part is key - consistent application of the same formula, and consistent presentation on a mostly weekly basis. I'm into my 3rd year at ST, so I think there'll be a few more weeks here :)

You're right, even the different sections at ST are interesting. I guess it all has to do with where people prefer to comment on your journal (if you have it in both.)
Something I've noticed, the star for new entry in the legend at the bottom has been missing since your post ~March 9th. Not sure if that was intentional or not, just thought I'd point it out.

Hi, Swordmaster. I agree - that factory is a stunning piece of work. I am sure that spending time creating gorgeous nature scenes and stunning urban vistas gets more credit, but this is beyond words.

Hi, noahclem. Scroll down to see if Framly extended Rondnoir's stay at the top or if something else happened.

Hi, Girafe. Yes... but with those creations and the story of Yvonne, I'm not surprised.

Hi, sim_link. Thanks for pointing that out - I will put it back ;) And someone's getting fired.... oh, wait...

Hi, apeguy. Welcome back to the Top Ten this week.

Hi, eugenelavery. Welcome to BTT @ SC4 devotion. And if you scroll back you'll see that your MD was in the top ten a few weeks ago. That's 2 out of 3 ;)

Hi, art128. What do you think about this week's top 4?

Hi, carlfatal. I hope this week feeds your love for stats.


__________________________________________________________________________
Ben's Top Ten

Whew, where did all those comments come from? Great to see all this week.

Rondnoir has done it again - five weeks at number 1. The whole top four is the same, but a lot of change below that. The highest re-entry is The Deltan Empire at 5. Eloaria and Med Inspirations re-enter at 7 and 8, and there's a new MD at 10, Rep˙blica de Avalon.

You can now follow BTT on twitter @BensTopTen

Nice collection of BTT #1's in the list. One thing I noticed though, Republic of Avalon appears both in the #10 spot, as well as the +10 list. Was that an oversight, or does the +10 list work a bit differently from the main 10?

Hi, RickD. Framly is certainly on a roll. It was really close this week - scroll down to see if Rondnoir stayed on top.

Hi, Kergelen. It was a tight contest between Eloaria and Rondnoir this week...

Hi, threestooges. Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy last time - it was an oversight on my part, but as you can see, an easily corrected one.

Hi, sim_link. Well, that sounds way out of my skillset. Anwyay, how would a program choose the image to display? I do have uses, apparently.

Hi, rooker1. Always good to see you commenting here.

As I mentioned in the replies, this week the contest was extremely close, and I didn't know who would be number one until I ran the final numbers. Congratulations to Rondnoir, which stretches its time at number 1 to 6 weeks.

Welcome back to Windows on the World at 7, and there's a new entry for Sardinia Region at 10.

Hi, art128. And you've gained again this week.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks as always for your support - glad to see we are of the same mind, that image is gorgeous.

Hi, vortext. Framly has certainly been unbeatable lately - but did something else happen this week? BTW, I find it a bit redundant to say X's diary by X. To be fair, I did use a bit of editorial license there, but it is consistent with how I apply the names across all three versions of BTT.

Hi, WannaGLondon. Loved your London buses this week - and you're up a bit more, well done.

Ben's Top Ten

There are two re-entries this week, and one of them is the new number 1!! Congratulations to Windows on the World.

The other re-entry, at 10, is one of my personal favorites: Alba Ceann mu Dheas - welcome back.

Hi, WannGLondon. Thanks for your comment - this week you're down a couple, but still in the Top Ten.

Hi, art128. I think the supremacy was interrupted, rather than ended ;)

Hi, noahclem. Thanks as always for your comment - and I just saw your explanation of the meaning of Siilijoki - nice.

Hi, sim_link. Always exciting to see a new number one.

Hi, Framly. I think that art128 made the perfect slip!

Hi, kelis. Great stuff last time - scroll down to see if you stayed on top or if something else happened...

Hi, kergelen. Glad you find the BTT versions useful.

Hi, ThomasK. There are about the same number of MDs active each week as there are CJs in the ST forum, however you are correct in your obeservation - here the active ones are consistently updated. Each version of BTT has its own quirks and features it seems.

Hi, ThomasK. I don't know about back to the drawing board... there has been a lot more activity over at ST in the two CJ areas - getting quite competitive. Remember that, although most of the score comes from this weeks updates and replies, that the previous three weeks' scores have a small contribution. BTT rewards consistency as well as the big 'flash in the pan' update.

Hi, art128. Another climb for you this week.

Hi, kelis. Three in a row now.

Hi, Paul 999. And being OSITM often gives an MD a nice boost.

Hi, noahclem. I agree, I'm not surprised that Windows on the World has been on top four out of the last five weeks.

Hi, sim_link. HD didn't make it this week. Maybe next time.

Hi, ThomasK. There are about the same number of MDs active each week as there are CJs in the ST forum, however you are correct in your obeservation - here the active ones are consistently updated. Each version of BTT has its own quirks and features it seems.
__________________________________________________________________________
Ben's Top Ten

No surprise, Windows on the World scored very highly this week to retain the top spot.

There's a newcomer to the top ten - welcome to New Holland at 5.

Waldey is a high re-entry at 4, Sardinia is back at 9, and Kolbrˇw returns at 10.
BSC - VIP team is a new entry, thanks to its well-deserved OSITM.

I think most MDs here don't get the number of comments they deserve.  Too often I see fantastic updates followed by one or two comments, I guess this site is kind of slow at the moment.

Either that or the community is too biased on certain updates or even the MD themselves.

Post by: threestooges on August 16, 2012, 08:39:11 PM
I'd say it's, as with everything, the natural ebb and flow. It used to be narrative MD's were the big thing, as well as accurate re-creations of real world cities. Yeah, it's true, some MDs don't get nearly the credit they deserve in terms of posts, but I think we're all guilty of that. I know I haven't posted in nearly as many MDs as those that deserve it. I suppose there is one way to change that though.

Great to see these lists Ben. It's really interesting to watch the changes over time.

Hi, art128. Windows certainly has had some spectacular pictures over the last couple of weeks.

Hi, kelis. Great stuff last time.

Hi, RickD. I like New Holland a lot myself.

Hi, noahclem. That is one of my favorite Simpsons episodes ever - I laughed so hard when the mirrorball dropped down form the ceiling at the end.

Hi, Paul 999. Being OSITM does help spread the word about your MD.

Hi, nas-t. Welcome!

Hi, sim_link. It is fascinating to see how the lists change each week as well as how they differ from each other.

I just noticed I missed replying to a few comments at the top of the page - sorry about that.

Hi, eugenelavery. I think this is very common here as well as over at ST in some places.

Hi, Evillions8 and eugenelavery. I have been running BTT here since just before Christmas... I don't see a big bias to be honest. I think that being OSITM increases the comments after each update quite a bit, and I think the classics section seems to get more comments than the other sections. Of course there are some MDs that seem to get a ton of comments - I think this is a matter of quality of updates as well as consistency. I think that the MD that plugs away, providing good quality on a regular basis and patiently climbs its way through the different sections will do well.

Hi, threestooges. I really like your ebb and flow comment - I agree! These days it seems like well-staged scenes do well - this could be due to the recent proliferation of excellent MMPs. Regardless of cause, I think we all benefit from a well-crafted MD.

Hi, Schulmanator. Well, I;ve only been doing BTT here for 8 months, so I suppose if I'd been doing it in the past you might've appeared. Congrats again on making it into the Top Ten for a second week.

Hi, Girafe. You can thank being part of OSITM in this part of the forum :)

Hi, ThomasK. I wanted to be able to reward the steady, good diarist as well as the brilliant flash-in-the-pan-gets-a-lot-of-comments diarist. The system works well as far as I can tell. It also helps to resolve ties.

Hi, sim_link. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

...I think most MDs here don't get the number of comments they deserve.  Too often I see fantastic updates followed by one or two comments, I guess this site is kind of slow at the moment.

People just aren't posting and I'm not sure why, but its not just our site, quoting from another non-SC4 site

Quote
It gets very discouraging when we have as many members as we do and there is little to no participation from over 80% of the members.
Case in point. Wayne bent over backwards to put together a Buildoff that has VERY few limitations so we can get as many members as we can involved. The number of members we have currently participating is nothing short of sad and pathetic. Why would anyone want to take the time to try and put things like this together when there isn't going to be the participation so many other forums cular. generate.

Something else that bugs the heck out of me is the lack of members taking the time to review the newe kits on the market. Model Cars Forum has 2 reviews and buildups that are nothing short of spectacular. They are indepth with great pics, tips, and ideas for the new Revell releases. Yet, here on a forum dedicated to drag racing models, we don't so much as hardly a mention of the kits being released, let alone any reviews. Again, sad and pathetic.

The bottom line is, we can't force people to post here and participate. The internet is flooded with model forums these days and it just comes down to a matter of preference. It's more than obvious the majority of those who are members here would rather post someplace and that's fine.

I have pulled the plug on forums in the past for lack of participation and I'm not above doing it again. There simply is no point dumping a bunch of effort and time into something only a handful of people appreciate. If it sounds as though I'm a bit miffed, then I'm getting my point across. Wayne and I appreciate the support we have of the few who do visit this forum and call it home, but I'm not afraid to tell you I'm disappointed with the lack of response we get from the vast majority of "members" here.
Maybe it's time I weed through the members and those who haven't been on here are removed. this way we will have a dedicated bunch who can make this place or break it.

the link to this site and board  http://quartermilers.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=drmd&action=display&thread=3063

and I can link to a dozen or more sites that are having the same problem with their members not posting any more.

Yes, I'm afraid Ellias is right in that the internet has changed with the rise of Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and the like. It's not only fora suffering from a lack of participation, I know of quite a few decent websites that have gone black because the editors decided to shift activity over to the platforms mentioned instead of maintaining a site of their own creation. &mmm

Perhaps rather than your Diary itself, maybe a teaser picture or post and a pointer back to this site if they want to see the rest of the diary, that way you are not trying to maintain multiple copies across lots of sites.

You are welcome to try an "advert" out on my site and see if it would work   :thumbsup:

Hi, Swordmaster. UPdates in Siilijoki have been insanely good recently.

Hi, art128. Well, there were no comments/updates in your MD last week, so you fell in the rankings - but you're climbing again now.

Hi, catty. I guess many more things vie for our attention and time than in the past, and both of those commodities are limited. The participation in the MD section of this site is about the same as the original CJ forum over at ST - so good enough to run numbers for BTT.

Hi, Terring7. No silly posts here - I find all the posts here at SC4D to be of a mature nature - which is a refreshing change. Not sure about sharing your work elsewhere as viewers would have even less incentive to come here.

Hi, vortext. Thanks for your view.

Unusually for the SC4D list, there is a cleanout of half the Top Ten.

Four MDs return: Eloaria, Pense, Republic of Arinsia and Aaron Graham's BATs are back. New to the top ten is The Land of Desera.

Every time I choose a benedict's One to Watch CJ or MD it invariably drops down! Sorry, The City of Danyard. This week's One to Watch is Nagagonia - the shipwreck scene from the latest update is one of the best things I have seen here.

Hi, Kergelen. I agree, Siilijoki is great. And thanks for your support.

Hi, Swordmaster. Well done last week. There is a BTT axiom: It is the fate of all MDs to go up or down.

Hi, art128. Thanks for the gangnam elephants - they entertain me!

Hi, Pat. Thanks! After today's announcement, you may have a little something extra to mention...

__________________________________________________________________________
 :-\     Ben's Top Ten SC4D   :-\
:-\ Birthday Month Special
:-\

In conjunction with the SC4D 6th Birthday Celebration Team, Ben's Top Ten is bringing a few special treats to this thread throughout November.

1. The biggest and best treat is that there will be a Birthday BTT that covers the whole month. Every MD that is updated from November 1-30 will be eligible to take part, and on Dec 1 the winner will be announced along with a special BTT list. 'Winner?' I hear you say... Yes, there is a prize - a one year subscription to this website. So get those November updates rolling!

There'll be weekly updates of the 20 MDs that are in contention for the big win.

2. Starting in a few days time, we'll be taking a look at the top MDs for the whole of SC4D's 6th year.

3. 'Hang on, the whole of the 6th year? But BTT SC4D started in December, not November!' True... but the BTT formula can be applied retroactively, so starting on Saturday there'll be trips in the BTT Time Machine to complete the year.

4. Tomorrow the last BTT for SC4D's 6th year will be revealed. The remaining November BTTs will be presented after the birthday celebrations in 2 and 3 are completed.

Have a great birthday month, everyone! :party:

Hi, Swordmaster. Looking forward to it - and it looks like #5 is your spot :)

Hi, nas-t. Welcome back to the list this week!

Hi, rooker1 It's mostly thanks to noahclem, but I did add a bit myself. I like the idea of having some different BTT traditions here to contrast with BTT at ST.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi, sim_link. Me, too! One thing I've learned from doing BTT is that the outcome is often surprising.

Hi, threestooges. I could show you, but then I'd have to kill you. Just kidding... it is mostly straightforward, and is approximately the number of unique, non-author replies in a week, divided by the number of author updates. I track the MDs for the 28 days prior to the current date, with diminishing returns for each week.  There are some small factors included - Ben's 'special sauce' if you like ;)

Hi, Pat. There'll be a lot of updates in this topic this month - so stay tuned.
__________________________________________________________________________
 :-\ Ben's Top Ten: SC4D :-\

Today's update is a regularly scheduled BTT. It is also the last one of SC4Devotion's 6th year in existence!

Congratulations to Siilijoki for speeding back to number one with a chilling Halloween update.

There are four re-entries: welcome back to Casper's Portfolio, Alba Can mu Dheas, Federal Republlic of Belleny and Tarkusian Cities.

Have a great birthday month, everyone! :party:

Hi, Swordmaster Yes, I do go through all the MDs (and anything that is featured in OSITM) that have been active in the week, I have to go through each one and record author posts and non-author posts. Doing this for the past is done in the same way - it isn't harder, it just takes a lot longer as there are more MDs to sift through.

Hi, mave94. Thanks for your great comment - I enjoy doing this, and enjoy seeing who comes out where each week. Glad you like it, too.

Hi, sim_link. Glad this is holding your interest. I just wanted to complete the year, since I'm doing the end-of-year chart a little differently here at SC4D.

Hi, noahclem. Glad you like the Time Machine work - it isn't too bad - just a little ignoring of Einstein's equation and a little coercion of the Tardis.

Hi, rooker1. Thanks!

Hi, sunv123. Hopefully you'll be around for many birthdays to come.

I've never seen anything like that: the top 3 are all Hall of Famers (Pirgos having been inducted a week before); including the all-time #1 MD by post count, The Commonwealth of Marathon; and 4 of the top 6 are from the HoF! Congrats to Corsica!

Wow! That may be the best mosaic I've ever seen on these boards. Stitching all the previous N░1 pictures together is just brilliant. There's so much you can get out of that, from witnessing the quality of SC4D's MDs, to seeing how everyone's really got their unique style, to guessing which one will be at #1. My best bet is on Siilijoki.

Cheers

I like this giant mosaic Ben. what I like about it is you choose old pictures at the top, to finish with recent one at the bottom. Just seen thanks to Willy's comment that there are all picture that went on the BTT's 1st place.  :P

Hi, sunv123 As Swordmaster pointed out, these are the images from the year's number ones (so unfortunately no Port St Claire).

Hi, Swordmaster. I agree - the quality of images is amazing. Each one is like a mini-artwork. Stay tuned to see how your prediction pans out.

Hi, art128. Glad you like it, and you have indeed identified many of the number one MDs.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks! The pictures are what makes the MDs special, so it is nice to see them all together.

Hi, Schulmanator No. Although when I think about the options - money in hand, vs sifting through all the MDs and entering all the data... hmmm....

Hi, sim_link. Good luck for the November contest.

Hi, wallasey. No problem, it isn't like this thread is required reading ;) Thanks - I'm glad you like the mosaic. In addition to what Sim City is, it is also a reflection of what SC4D is - when I look at all those images they are of a stunningly high quality - bordering on art in my opinion.

Hi, Kergelen. Yes, Eloaria's in the Top Ten. Look down to see how close your prediction is (I think you got all 10 remaining MDs named correctly).

Hi, wallasey. Yes, tough competition.

Hi, apeguy. Since the year-end chart covers the whole year, I wasn't surprised to see you do so well.

    %$payas)( :party:  :sunny:  ()flower()  &apls  :satisfied:  %BUd%  &bis&  &dance

Here we go, it's the Top Ten!

At 10 it's Eloaria.
Hall of Fame and a former number one MD AntigOne's Project is at 9.
Alba Ceann mu Dheas (one of my personal favorites) is at 8.
Another number one MD is at 7 - Windows on the World.
At 6 is Nagagonia - the highest MD on the year's chart not to reach number one, an impressive achievement.

The top 5 have all been number one this year.

At number 5 it's Med Inspirations.
Empire Bay is at number 4 - well done to RickD for having two number one MDs this year.
Recently inducted to the hall of Fame, Rondnoir is at 3. This MD holds the record for most weeks in a row at the top, eight!
Hiroshima is at number two.

So of course, that only leaves one MD. It started the year at number one, it ended the year at number one, it has just been voted into the Hall of Fame, and it's number one for the year: Siilijoki.

Congratulations to noahclem, and thanks to everyone for an amazing year of MDs, they have been exceptional.
Thanks also to everyone at SC4D for being supportive of BTT this year.

Don't forget the BTT Birthday Month Contest is still going (ends midnight est Friday).

I'll have a couple of other BTT goodies before then.

Have a great birthday month, everyone! :party:

Here's my top 4 prediction:

#4 Hiroshima

Looks like I underestimated Hiroshima a little. At least I got the MDs right!

Congratulations to Noah and everyone else on this list! We all had a blast this year because of you. Now let's make next year even better!  ;D

Lots of comments to answer....

Hi, sunv123 Well done with your predictions.

Hi, rambuckel. Your MD was consistently in the Top Ten for a large part of the year - well done.

Hi, Swordmaster. It was actually very close between the top two - quite unusual based on the other end of year BTT charts I've done over at ST.

Hi, weixc812. What noahclem said ;)

Hi, noahclem. Well done - the community clearly thinks very highly of your work, and your ability to produce the highest quality updates on a regular basis is very impressive.

Hi, Mandelsoft. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, sim_link. Thanks for your comment.

Hi, Girafe. Hi! Great to see you stop by.

Hi, Vortext. Thanks for adding your praise to the list.

Hi, Schulmanator. Thanks for your comments.
__________________________________________________________________________
Ben's Top Ten: Year 6 Finale   

There's one more bonus update concerning the year's BTTs. This one will appeal to all you stats geeks out there.

Here's a look at the weekly scores. The three lines represent the scores that the #1, #10 and #20 (last spot in the +10) reached each week. You can see that some weeks it would have been very hard to reach number one. The highest weekly score was achieved by Rondnoir, during that MD's reign of 8 weeks at the top.

The other 12 number ones for the year are color-coded along the top. You'll also notice that there hasn't been a fresh face at number one for 20 weeks! Will that change as year 7 begins? You'll have to stay tuned.

Enjoy.

Hi, sim_link Thanks - glad you like it. I might do this for the year end BTTs at ST as well.

Hi, nas-t. Glad you enjoyed the finale to a year of BTT here.

Hi, Framly. A very tough thing to achieve here with such high quality MDs every week.

Hi, Yan077. Back at the start I thought Corsica was going to outgun everyone with 3 weeks in a row at number one (I had already done those weeks, but decided to start with a Christmas chart - my tradition!).

Hi, eugenelavery. The year end chart is more about consistency than anything else - well done.

Hi, Kergelen. Glad you like it.

Hi, OI.S / Benoit. Well done, and thank you.

Hi, Swordmaster. Week 1 was the 9th, so close enough. Interesting, I'll have to see if that is true for the other BTTs.

Hi, rooker1. November was the month of Empire Bay, for sure. Thanks again for the gift, I have been checking out all the little extras on the site. I had  a lot of fun participating in the birthday celebrations.

Hi, RickD. Did you hang on to the top spot? Or did something else happen? Scroll down..

Hi, rambuckel. Thanks for your comment.

Hi, nas-t. Thanks, glad you enjoyed the show.

I'd been waiting all of last year for this MD to make it to number one - and finally, as a re-entry straight to the top, it has - well done to Nagagonia!

Hi, Swordmaster Thanks as always for commenting here.

Hi, nbvc. Brilliant work last time. I was also glad that I got to use another image from your latest updates in the contest gif image. I don't use mods/bats/cheats/mmps in my own CJs over at ST, but things like your beautiful manta rays make me want to!

Hi, noahclem. In the past Nagagonia had been up to number 2, so I was also pleased to see it hit number one.

Hi, sunv123. Those are some stunning images from Nagagonia - it doesn't really look like SC4, really.

Hi, sim_link. HD seems to pop in and out of the +10 here.

__________________________________________________________________________

Another week to catch up on from November, and it's the second week in a row for an MD to re-enter at the top for its first number one! Well done to Tarkusian Cities.

The other re-entries are The Deltan Empire and Windows on the World.

Have a great week!

We're gradually catching up to real time... today it is congratulations to Siilijoki for returning to the top slot.

We're back on track, and in an extremely tight finish (a couple of comments could have pushed it either way), Port St Claire scores its first number one at BTT - well done.

The SFBT Christmas Special is new at 5, and Empire Bay is back at 7.

Hi, sim_link. Happy Holidays to you, too.

Hi, Schulmanator. There always is nifty stuff on BTT.

__________________________________________________________________________

Port St Claire threepeats at the top as 2012 draws to a close - well done.

Empire Bay and Nagagonia return, and Capporth City is new to the Top Ten.

Thanks to all the mayor diarists for their amazing creations - it's been a fantastic calendar year.

I am sure that 2013 will bring even more fascinating work.

Have a great week!

Hi, weixc812. I saw you snuck one last update in there - very nice.

Hi, Swordmaster. Delicious steaks, keep them coming.

__________________________________________________________________________

Happy New Year, everyone!

Port St Claire starts 2013 as it ended 2012 - on top.

There are three new entries to go along with the new year. Welcome to Holt District at 7, District of Wenzel at 9 and Riverton at 10.

Med Inspirations returns at 5.

I just finished the annual top 100s over at Simtropolis, and I looked at the 3 different BTTs. If you are interested in numbers, graphs and stats this may interest you: Link (http://community.simtropolis.com/topic/34864-bens-top-ten-10/page__st__1590#entry1306998)

Hi, weixc812. Good work last time.

Hi, mave94. Glad you like the added stats.

Hi, sunv123. 1oth is good, 8th is better ;)

Hi, noahclem. Sneaking up to and stuck at 2 - very nice.

Hi, sim_link. Well done - top 10 in all forms of BTT. And congrats on being OSITM.

Port St Claire continues on at number one.

Hi, sunv123. Number 7 again - nice work.

Hi, sim_link. Not sure why your updates didn't get any comments this week - hopefully next week will be better.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks as always for your support.

Hi, Girafe. Great to see a comment from you, thanks.

__________________________________________________________________________

Port St Claire is number one yet again. I encourage everyone to go and look at the large version of the image in his MD this week - truly impressive attention to detail. My favorite part, which I used for the background image, was the shallow water with ducks and geese (?) swans and a couple of deer.

Realistic Cities for Dummies is new at 2, The Winding River Project is back at 6 and Alba Ceann mu Dheas returns at 10.

Have a great week!

Well done to everyone on the list.  I will have to work hard to get more replies to my CJ. 

I was wondering if it would be a fun idea to do an Ultimate Top 100 ranking for 2012 combining the stats from the two lists over at Simtropolis and the list here at SC4D.

Thanks for the shout-out Ben. I honestly don't know why I'm at #1 all the time, I think there are a good many interesting MDs going on here. Thanks for doing the list, too, of course!

Oh, and the white birds are actually swans. You'll see it better when I do some close-ups next update.

Thanks to whoever is in charge of giving me a custom label - looks great!

Hi, rooker1. Thanks for your comment, and great to se Mind Scape back in the top ten this week.

Hi, Swordmaster. Well, you have the highest number of comments per update currently... and since the fate of all MDs is to go up or down, at some point somebody else will take over the top spot.

Hi, eugenelavery. Unfortunately that top 100 list would be comprised of mostly CJs from the newer CJ section of Simtropolis, with the MDs here and the CJs in the CJ forum of ST fighting for the scraps at the bottom - it is really like trying to compare apples to oranges.

Hi, sim_link. Up a touch this week.

__________________________________________________________________________

Port St Claire says goodbye to January from the top spot once again.

Welcome back to Mind Scape, Med Inspirations and A Journey through Finland.

Hi, packersfan. Woot! indeed.

Hi, sim_link. Some weeks it doesn't take much - good to see you back in the ranks.

I was a bit worried about this week with the site outage, however in the end there was enough activity to run the formula.

Nice to see HD is now consistently in the +10 here. May need to come up with something to get it more active here, it lags the most here for some reason.

Hi, threestooges. You had the highest score, that's how it happened ;) (Many CJs get a boost from being OSITM).

Hi, threestooges. I usually choose the image that is my personal favorite. Sometimes I choose one that has a nice contrast from the previous week's. I love transit, so often there'll be a train :)

Hi, noahclem. Thanks for stopping by - always good to get a comment from you.
__________________________________________________________________________

A close contest between the same two protagonists this week. Kamiyama came out on top - well done.

Big changes this week, with half the Top Ten replaced. Shayden is in at 6 in its debut week, and there are four re-entries. Welcome back to Empire Bay, Harren, Nyhaven and Holt District.

I don't think this has happened before - well done to Ărden which enters at number one in its debut week.

Hi, vortext. Great stuff last time, and I think that without the images you may not have had quite the response.

Hi, eugenelavery. That's right, my mistake - I didn't go back to see if you had been in the top ten before.

Hi, Swordmaster. Wow, you're observant, and correct. eugene's MD had previously been in the top ten, so should have been a re-entry.

Hi, sim_link. Here's another week of big change.

Congratulations to BAT Showcase which moves up to number one this week.

And a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SC4D.

There'll be a couple of special things from BTT this month to help with the celebration - if I add it all up there will be an update of some sort almost every day.

To start things off, there's the final regular Ben's Top Ten for year 7.

Congratulations to Provo which spends a third week at the top.

Tarkusian Cities and Zeroing City are back, Federation Rand and Caledonia is in the top ten on its debut week, and Pleasant Cove Island is new.

A good start to the month, with all the special stars and symbols featured in this weeks image.

See you all tomorrow...

Hi, Swordmaster. The day has arrived!

Hi, sim_link. It's been another great year of MDs here at SC4D.

Hi, threestooges. RIP Greenacre.

Hi, sunv123. Here they are...

Hi, MandelSoft. Good work this past year.

Hi, vester. I took the name from when your thread was in OSITM.
____________________________________________________________________________

Ben's Top Ten

Today continues the HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SC4D celebration with the final part of the end of year 7 chart.

83 MDs and OSITM threads made it into BTT this year. Today we're going to look at the Top Ten.

10. vortext's Ărden, currently OSITM, blasted onto the scene and went straight to number one.

9. Holt District by sim_link has been an almost constant presence this year.

8. sunv123's Provo has been number one a few times, including the last one of the year.

7. Perennial favorite, former number one and Hall of Fame MD AntigOne's Project by Badsim is going strong since the start of (SC4D) time!

6. smileymk's Realistic Cities for Dummies is the highest ranked MD on the list not to have hit number one - reaching number 6 for the year without topping the chart is an amazing achievement.

5. Empire Bay by RickD is a former number one and great escape to an era when empire was the gold standard.

4. Swordmaster's Port St Clare was number one for 8 weeks, equalling the record set by Rondnoir.

3. Windows on the World allowed us to believe we really were transported to far away places in pictures by kelis.

2. nbvc's Nagagonia revealed the warm feel of tropical waters, even in the dead of winter (northern hemisphere only, of course), and reached number one for the first time early in the year.

And a big congratulations to number 1 - Kamiyama! Thanks, art128, for your incredibly detailed views of a Japanese-inspired region that you have shared all year long!!

Thanks to all the Mayor Diarists, and all the other folk who create custom content - without you, BTT would not be possible. I have enjoyed running this very much this year!

And the final picture...

Oh my.

I did not expect to win! ( who does anyway )

Well. I'm glad. I'm glad and impressed. Damn I can't even find my words.


Thank you Ben for doing again this year the top MD of the year. It's an incredible moment that need a lot of work in the backstage, I'm very thankful to you for taking on your free time to do these stats. Really a big thank you for this and I hope we'll see more your top ten+ each weeks!
Also to all the Players out there, Don't hesitate to create your own MD. Don't be intimidate by the big MDs around there. Everyone has a chance and the right to shine.
It would be great to see some new MD around the Ben top ten!

Congratulation to everyone who made it on the list, no matter where you are. Thanks to you, MDers, this site is still going strong!

Don't worry Vortext, This award is a big motivation for continuing my projects!

Hi, titanicbuff. Indeed. Great to see so many MDs this past year.

Hi, sim_link. Consistency does help in the year end score - well done again!

Hi, kelis. Thanks for your dedication to your MD all year, and thanks for your kind words.

Hi, Swordmaster. I for one would be happy to see more from Port St Claire.

Hi, rooker1. Thanks!

Hi, Kergelen. Thanks to you, too.

Hi, vortext. Great stuff last year, and hoping for a lot more this year.

Hi, art128. I really enjoy doing this year-end list, even though it does take organizing (and I'm not naturally very organized). Well done again.

Hi, nbvc. Your MD is one with a high quality and regular updates, so I wasn't surprised to see you do well.

Hi, sunv123. NO!! No break for you!!

Hi, feyss. Your MD was number one twice this year, so that helped it place so well.

Ben's Top Ten

HAPPY BIRTHDAYSC4D.

Today is the geeky update, so skip it if graphs don't interest you. (I think Willy will like this one).

Number ones are along the top. There were 19 different number ones this year. Port St Claire spent 8 weeks in a row at number one and 10 weeks in total at the top.

Weeks are on the X axis, and weekly score on the Y axis. The highest scoring week occurred when Siilijoki was number one.

Just a little detail: I see "Ma" TWICE in the above scheme, both with a different colour. I know one of them is mine, but what is the other, I wonder?

Also, axis descriptions will help me to understand the graph better ;)

Hi, MandelSoft. Graph is updated - it was not my intention to have repeat codes for the MDs. The first Ma was Mass Effect: The Milky Way, although when it hit number one it was just The Milky Way, so it now has the Mi code.

Hi, sunv123. Yes, time to act!

Hi, Schulmanator. The yearly chart is a cumulative score, and your MD has been present in the Top ten or +10 a lot - glad it was a nice surprise, and well done.

Hi, Schulmanator. Being OSITM usually helps most MDs do better than average.

Hi, 976. And a little higher again this week.

Must be really slow here if San Diego is holding out in the +10 with 1 entry and 2 teasers

Also noticed a drop in the +10 numbers. +8 last week, +7 this week. Are the last spots too low to count?

Hi, APSMS. The number of MDs being updated has been in gradual decline for a while. The formula produces a score based on the last 4 weeks of activity in an MD - so if there has been no activity in that time the score is 0 and the MD cannot be ranked. In other words, during the last 4 week period, only 16 MD + OSITM threads have been active.

Hi, elavery. There has definitely been a decline in MD activity over the last 18 months. The decline in active CJs in the ST forums is similar, although the ST CJ section is still going full blast with over 50 active CJs each week. ST does tend to encompass CJs based on many city builder games, though.

Hi, Kelis. Thank you for your great update!

Hi Ben,
always interesting to see what the people are looking at in SC4Devotion.

Wondering why my MD isn't in the +10, since there was an update and comments last week (21st) (and since the extra slots aren't full).

Thanks for all the work. How do you gather the statistics, btw? I've always wondered if there's some sort of history that the site keeps, or if you track all of these manually with an excel sheet (or?).

Hi

Thanks for pointing the discrepancy out... turns out I entered the data incorrectly for your CJ. A corrected version of BTT is above.

I track all the data manually, yes, in excel.

Hi, art128. Nice work as always.

Hi, jmsepe. It's the BTT empire at your service!

Hi, SimRico. Good work.

Hi, carlfatal. Yes :) I'm just sad your MD title is so long it doesn't quite fir the BTT format.

HI, vortext. No, not discontinued, just ... delayed... shall we say.

I apologize for the long absence and delay in returning to Ben's Top Ten here. I'll be playing catch up for a while until we're back on track. Just think of this as a mini-time machine going all the way back to July...

Kamiyama is number one for an impressive fifth week.

The Exploitation of Mordant is new, United States of Simerica and The Kingdom of Illium debut, and Schulmania: National Capital is back.

Hi, carlfatal. Thanks. Well, at the least I should probably have made an announcement in the thread that updates were on hold temporarily.

Hi, Sim.Rico. Good to see you representing here.

Hi, jmsepe. Thank you.

Hi, vortext. Thank you - and thanks for being supportive of BTT.

Hi Ben,

Always a pleasure to see your year restrospective. It shows us that even if SC4D has lost activity by the years, there is still great and talented MD's here. I'm just a little disappointed that I couldn't participate more to this this year.

Anyway, thank you for your job  :thumbsup:

Hi, art128. Thank you - always fun to see the big picture once a year, even if I am a little late this time around.

Hi, feyss. I, too, am a little sad I didn't see more of your work this year - but of course that is a selfish wish as I love your cities so much. I have not been able to play as much SC4 this year, and I seem to keep falling behind with BTT as well. Hopefully 2015 will be a better year.

So only 71 threads made it on to the Top Ten in the last year?

And are those images correlated to the MDs/threads that made the list? Or are they just a bunch of really nice images? Cause I noticed a bunch that seem to all be from the same person  ???.

Oh, and thanks for the hard work, too. It means a lot, since no one else would probably do this if you didn't.

Ben's Top Ten

The previous BTT was the last one for SC4Devotion's 8th year! Happy belated birthday, SC4D.

You know what that means... time for the top MDs and OSITM threads for the year (November 2013-October 2014).

Today we reveal the top ten MDs for the year - congratulations to all the diarists, and well done to Kamiyama, the year's number one MD.

Thank you for your hard work all along the year once again, Ben. :)

What a wonderful list we have this year, a bit of shame we don't have a full hundred MDs this time. I'm happy to be first this year and will do my best to stay there for this upcoming 2015. ;P

Also, I might be wrong, although I tripple checked, but you've missed Dantes' Totori region in the top 71/72.

Thanks Ben for all this awesome work. Ditto to Art128 for getting number 1 - I give full congratulations! I was surprised to be top 50 let alone #33!

Pity we didn't hit the century but there is always next year! :P

Second year in a row if I'm not mistaken, congratulations Arthur!  &apls

Also pleased with my number two spot, did not expect that big a jump from #10 last year.  ()stsfd() Thanks to everyone who has commented.  :thumbsup:

Also, I might be wrong, although I tripple checked, but you've missed Dantes' Totori region in the top 71/72.


If I recall correctly Dantes requested to be taken out of the BTT some time ago.

And of course congrats to all fellow majors in the list! I'm looking forward to another year of great MDs!   :popcorn:

Hi, jmsepe. Thanks.

Hi, Kisa Atusko. Not bad at all.

Hi, art128. As vortex mentioned, dantes decided to not be part of BTT.

Hi, Durfsurn. It would be great to see a century in 2014/15.

Hi, vortext. Great work this year.

Hi, juliok102013. Thank you, and nice work on your MD this year.

Gee, number 17 position for the past year...I don't know whether to be flattered for being so high on the list, or to be sad that activity was so low this year that my inconsistent updates allowed me into the top 20.

Either way, congrats to Arthur for getting number 1, and to all the rest that made the Top Ten in the past year.
And thanks Ben, again, for doing all this work. Hope RL is working out well.

Hi, Kergelen. Thank you, and happy new year!

Hi, APSMS. I think you can be both... it isn't uncommon in any year to do well on the year-end chart with what feels like not many updates. RL is getting more under control, so even though there will be a few catch up weeks to go, I'm able to stay on top of the stats. Happy new year!

Hi, Schulmanator. Well done. In a few days time you'll be able to see if you pulled off a top ten sweep for 2015. Happy new year!

Thank you both, Benedict for the work, that is a real big advertisement for our work here, and also Eric for the congrats! I am still surprized, that Sims 3 could become such an interesting thing here.  :thumbsup:

I am not sure, if any city simulation game could give me the feeling, that I have, if I plan a town house after house, inside and outside. I mean, it is liveless most of the time, and there is nothing I "have" to do to build (although there are the usual limitations, but is there a game without?). Sadly this series is one of the most expensive ones, you can buy, and so I can┤t advise anyone to try it out. The prize is much too high, even if you love this game like I do now (with most of the addons).

And it is no alternative to a good City simulation game, like SC4 was and does become ever more by community made content.

Last but not least I am not sure, if I should change the game and the engine for my next project again...  $%Grinno$%

Hi, vortext. Thanks for your patience :)

Hi, carlfatal. In my experience, non-SC4 MDs do well because the author shows us something interesting - not necessarily just an interest in the game itself, although that can play a role.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks!
