As we all know Simcity 4 is now positively primordal in terms of computer games. It was originally released in 2003! This means that SC4 is now almost impossible to find and even if you do manage to find a set of discs somewhere and install them, modern operating systems may still not play along nicely.
However all is not lost! Help is at hand.
Minimum system requirements:
System: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10
Processor: 1.8 GHz
Memory: 512 MB
RAMGraphics: 3D graphics card – DirectX 9.0c – 800×600 resolution or higher
Storage: 1.6 GB
The good thing about this version of the game is that it comes all patched and ready to play, no need to have Disc 2 permanently in your CD ROM drive, no faffing about getting all those night light fixes and Maxis patches. All you need to do is load up your plugin folder with whatever custom content you want.
For those of you who really really want to go back to the beginning GoG also has Simcity 2000 and Simcity 3000.
