29 million, I sh*t you not!
Sim City 2000: I kicked ass and made a behemouth of 29 million. How? Well, with my insanity, I totally built it up, ran it for a day or two for money, gradually replacing all built up areas with Archologies.
Sim City 3000: I have built no less than 40 cities that have reached 2.5 million. Without using any cheats. This number, however, seems to be rather close to the absolute maximum.
Sim City 4: Gave up, after hitting half-a-mil. The game had too many shortcomings, was a memory hog, etc. Went back to playing Sim City 3000.
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know. -Donald Rumsfeld
Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?
