Download Instructions for Slice City:
Click download link at the top to download Slice City v1.2, zipped by Winzip. Please close all other programs before downloading. We recommend not using Simzip, or any sims-specific program to unzip it, as these are reported to sometimes corrupt certain object files.

It is very unlikely, but if you experience crashes or freezes for some reason, there is probably another cause so please consult our FAQ before contacting us. Please read below & also the enclosed "readme" file for important game play information. Thank you and we hope you enjoy! :)

See bottom of page for links and separate Slice City add-on object info! :)

Slice City!

Game Requirements - For best results, you'll need the Livin' Large expansion pack (or Sims Deluxe or Double Deluxe since they both have the same Livin' Large files), and so officially we recommend LL, SD or DD. If you don't, you might still be able to use this. Click here to read more.

Please don't copy, clone, hack, distribute or post this elsewhere. Thank you.

SLICE CITY GAME DESCRIPTION -- PLEASE READ:

The Power Plant starts the game, it's in the Electronics section of Buy Mode -- click here to see a pic. Place it anywhere on your lot to begin. Only buy one per lot for best gameplay. If this is your first time here, please read everything below carefully. Otherwise you can click here for some Slice City Gameplay Tips. You can also buy the City Road Object - a flat road tile that, when put end to end to form roads, can spawn traffic at rushhour times.

Description: Slice City - "the other city that never sleeps". This city is awake and alive with hustle and bustle 24/7! Citizens use businesses, homes, parks, etc. for work and play, and these all cost you money to maintain. The happier the little people are in their habitat, the harder they will work, and the more profit you will make from them. Well-maintained cities can encourage more citizens to move in there. This will not only increase your population, but also your city size... and your profit margin. Cities that are neglected or not well-maintained will cease growing, or slowly deteriorate until they are nothing but piles of rubble. Using the various "disasters" (including a tornado option) can do that in much less time. ;) So to maximize your worker's output, keep all structures "refurbished". Your citizens may even help you do that on occasion too. And if you need more help, ask The Gardener. :)

The citizens also need power from the Power Plant to do any expanding. The Power Plant started in the "ON" position, but you can "Power it down" (by clicking on it) to stop your city from growing any further, and to keep your daily profits/costs stabilized (good for those that like the small town feel). "Power it up" again to allow for potential growth to resume (good for those that like the larger city life). City costs, profits and growth (if any) are calculated each midnight (between 11:55pm and 12:05am).

Lastly, click here for a few Slice City Gameplay Tips. If you come up with a good one, let us know and we can add to the list. We also have extra addon objects for you on our Slice City Addons Page. We sincerely hope you enjoy this, and if you have any questions or comments, please contact us :)

 

On a related note: This in no way compares to the SimCity games, which we are obviously fans of and highly recommend. This is just a mini-game influenced by aspects of it, to (hopefully) extend your enjoyment of The Sims. So for additional enjoyment, please check out SimCity, made by Electronic Arts, additional details are available via the official SimCity website.

Special thanks to Forum member KingSpore and the other members for helping come up with the name "Slice City."
