"Sim City 3000 was a huge title in 1999 on Windows, second only to Rollercoaster Tycoon. Based on sales figures, it was no wonder that Maxis, creators of all the Sim City titles, decided to make an extension to the successful game. Released on Windows earlier this month, Sim City 3000: Unlimited is scheduled to make its debut on Linux this summer, thanks to Loki Entertainment Software."

"Sim City 3000: Unlimited is a city-development simulation populated by virtual people called Sims. Taking place in a number of eras and featuring several modes of play, it's a game that will reach a broad audience with its refined, user-friendly display and numerous tutorial starter cities. Building a city from scratch, right down to individual bus stops, is the sole responsibility of a single person -- you. Listen to your Sims, spend money wisely, and watch your metropolis grow within the virtual world of Sim Nation...."

"Improvements over the standard Sim City 3000 include the new landscape, tree, and building sets. Those sets determine the appearance of your town, and if you don't find a building design set to meet your needs, with the Building Architect (like the Urban Development Kit of Sim City 2000) you can design your own monstrosities. You can even make new buildings during gameplay and use them straight away. Sweet!"
