Each puzzle piece or interchange in the game has a specific cost associated to it in the game's RUL files. Slopes also affect the costs of placing puzzle pieces, much like slopes do for ploppable lots.

I know that feeling, Robin!

I think it comes from the fact that we never know what we're going to see when we come here!

David, you're a machine, my friend!

Ooooops...



Sitting in the "E" Concourse of the Salt Lake City Airport for the last hour and a half, I solved a problem that had been blocking me on this piece since last night.

Apparently I didn't solve the other one, though.

Oh, well- it's another two and some hours to Austin.

Later.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time, this type of thing happened to me.

Anyone else have rails show up at road x's ?

I don't think many people's tires, or shocks, or most of the rest of their car, would like that very well either...  :D Looking forward to see what else you've cooked up for the FAR/FARR
My days here are numbered. It's been great and I've had a lot of fun, but I've moved on to bigger and better things.

Talk about a real transit switch. $%Grinno$%  Like you said, though, you've still got a lot of trip left, so I'm sure you'll do something good with that two hours. :)

You know, David - that picture gives me a thought.  That'd be a heckuva road / road intersection piece.  All it would need is a right turn slip lane.

Keep up the great work!

I bought my first copy of the game the day it was released back in January, 2003.  I couldn't figure out why EA had seemingly passed on launching SC4 during the Christmas season just ended- now, of course, that situation seems completely consistent with all the rest of the opportunities the company has let go by.

Most here know that I'm an urban planner as well as being a lawyer- I actually worked as a county planner for one of the happiest years of my life in upstate New York in the early 1990s.  Sim City first showed up just as I completed my graduate degree.



Over the years Nethack [linkie]



and the original Myst [linkie]



ran a distant (very distant) second and third, respectively, to Sim City (insert number of then current version) in terms of the number of hours logged at the latest iteration of whatever computer I had at the time.  I think I have also played Minesweeper, but I can't remember when.

So... SC4- and why am I going on like this?  Because tonight, November 2, 2008, somewhere over eastern New Mexico at 37,000 feet/11,250 meters, I saw this



and realized that, almost six years out, we, the user community, own pretty much all to ourselves the best urban/rural simulation that has ever or, within the foreseeable future, will ever be made.

A game that, as sold to us, could do the track on the left.  A game that, after we applied our collective talents to it, can do the track on the right.



We own it. We don't have to ask anyone's permission to do this.  We don't have to pay anyone for this.  We have hundreds of thousands of collected hours of acquired knowledge that lets us do almost anything we want to with it.



We own SC4.  We will see no better game replace it.

Later.

And that, David, is why you are the person to look up to and draw inspiration from in this community. I applaud you and all of your efforts over the years. I can't wait to see what the next six have in store for us!

I hope all is well with the boys and that nothing too serious is going on. My thoughts are with your family.

Cheers,
Kevin

David, you've hit the nail on the head, my friend.

Thanks to folks like you, this game has become so much more than anyone could have even imagines when in came out almost six years ago.

I think about how I used to play the game when I first got back then, and the amount of progress that's been made is just baffling! And new content is always on the horizon, which makes things even better!

Keep doing what you're doing, David--you, and 3RR and an inspiration!

That is touching, David.  It is also so very true.  To be honest, I feel like I can relate to this in my own small way.  I remember how I had SC4, got tired of it, didn't play it for a while, and finally found this site.  The rest, they say, is history.... Your last post brought back memories for me.

Keep it up, David.
