I’m playing Sim City 4, working on a small town and trying to create a close aproximation of the type of area where I live: A modest town with rural areas and some smallish farms about. Here is the main part of town:

All of that, plus a housing plan, plus a few farms and an industrial sector, are all supported by two wind turbines. Yeah right. This is a town of almost a thousand people, and still they are only using about 50% of the total output of these turbines.
Sim City 4 is billed as a “simulation” game, but clearly it has more in common with Neverwinter Nights and World of Warcraft. You know: fantasy games.
The story of me. If you're looking for a picture of what it was like growing up in the seventies, then this is for you.
