Generally, when things were going very well in a city, the news ticker would display headlines which are comical, or even nonsensical and often seemingly useless to the player. Examples of such headlines being: "After 36 years of marriage, man discovers wife to be form of rare yucca plant," or " City Name prints all wrong numbers in phone book, leads to 15 marriages" or quotes from a "Tommy B.

And 's soundtrack is the best in the series. Thanks for the help. I marked pmdboi's as best because he ran Sim City 4 on an identical computer.

She doesn't have internet access. Please hope me. Bonus points if I can get Sim City for her before she asks me again! The original Sim City was for original-era Macs, and would run just fine, but is pretty simplistic. Sim City was mids, and would also run like a breeze on that system, and was also available for the PPC Mac. Sim City was late 90s I think? Should run just fine on that as well, but I offer no guarantees. Sim City 4 is pretty much completely out. And the triple-post! I don't know how well it'd run on her PC, but it's out there as an option, and much more available than is, and probably a better overall game.
