Pfft… Pfft… Is this thing on?
Ah yes, there we are! The Screwpile still standing strong, on its screwed into the rock foundations since… um… I think 2012.
I know I have made more than one vauge promise over the last – few – years – to well update the broken links in the SPEX (may the prop pox of a thousand camels be upon you Dropbox for messing with the public download folder, which was working perfectly fine until you faffed with it.) Well, anyway I am pleased to announce that finally… finally I have now updated all the links so that they actually point somewhere useful, like…
Drum roll please…
Oh… well to be completely honest that will basically bring up the complete content list for all of my lots over at Simtropolis – but good old ST has been going for a pretty long time now and last time I looked it is still going pretty solidly strong.
It could be reasoned that this site isn’t really needed anymore, – yes it did serve a very useful service in the intrim period after the EA Simcity.com site was closed and before all those important Maxis files were uploaded in one place on Simtropolis.
But… hey I am kinda fond of this little site and I have also just paid the mapping, domain name fee again which will keep us good for another two years at least.
As well as updating the broken links, I have been in and had a good tidy up of the pages, created a couple of new ones – in particular there is a new Download Simcity 4 page. No, its not free, but the price is pretty reasonable and it comes all patched and ready to go.
I am also fixing up some of the images that I had hosted at Photobucket – again a while back they decided that you can only now upload 250 images for free – um well I have over 5000 images on my Photobucket so unless I want to pay for one of their reasonably pricey plans, all my PB images now have their lovely (not) watermark all over them.
Also updated are the New Carpathia tabs, which now includes the current Carpathia IV and Tales stories. Mr. Fox still uses Simcity 4 images in his stories for terrestrial and city scenes, so entirely worthy of a menu tab here on the ‘pile.
Welcome to the Screwpile!
Welcome to Screw Pile Developments, South Pacific Down Under Division… or here just Screwpile for short.
Now, I know that all may sound rather grandiose, but you do have to call yourself, and the stuff you put on the interwebs, something, and that something is the name that I use for anything that I make for the city building and simulation game, Simcity 4 Rush Hour made by Maxis / EA Games.
Screw Pile Developments is also a sub-forum on Simpeg.com which provides both a workshop for lots under development and also a show-case of my current and past Simcity 4 projects.
Simpeg also hosts my City Journal (CJ), Bean Rock which was started way back in May 2008, and now has well over 100k views, and over 1400 replies… but who is counting really…? Me apparently.
Here on the Screwpile, you will find different pages of Simcity 4 stuff, galleries of pictures, a download area for lots, useful links and game tutorials. Take a good look around, help your self to to a download or three, poke about, but most of all enjoy!
