    Could you believe that I only found out your hint now?
    Thak you very much John! I already had given up on trying!

    I love this game already. Only it gets a little boring playing only three holes

    Anyone else who always makes at least one island green?

    I really enjoyed the demo as well. Man, was I disappointed to hit the 3 hole limit -- I was really having fun. Definitely makes me want to go out and get the game. I think I'll probably get Sim Golf instead of Civ 3 if I ever do get anything.

    The game will get its own forum if there's sufficient interest.

    Yea, own forum to SimGolf . BTW can you put fountains in the demo? And can you save your GolfClub so that you can afterwards build it again, i know that you can play tournaments afterwards.

    In case you haven't noticed, this is the internet, not some private club where you can fire off snobby, snide remarks to anyone who hasn't hung out here enough to have a 'king' next to their name. Yes, it's a Civ forum. I noticed. So what?? I see lots of other games that have their own forums here. Did you ever hear of "expanding the site's focus"? Or does 'thinking outside the box' signal the downfall of the Apolyton boards as we know them?

    I suggest taking a walk, or seeing a movie for a change. Sheesh.

    Hiring people is done under the 'people' button. Once you're on the right screen, click the thumbs up button to get a list of people you can hire.

    Has anyone bought the airstrip yet? Gotten their fun factor up to 300? Me, I can get it up to around 210 or so.

    I'm also starting to use a single strip of fairway in many cases, it seems to be more effective in providing a challenge, even though it looks less good when you zoom out.

    Raising and lowering land is a very powerful tool. One tiny click can completely change how the hole plays. And it's great for elevated tees and greens as well.

    How about it, Mr. Moderator? Can SimGolf get it's own forum?

    Yes...just put .exe behind it...maybe select "All files" too...and it should do the trick...

    As for the game...it's quite entertaining...quite a dynamic game...I just can't find the soda vendor...

    Could anyone give me some help, please?

    I totally agree with deanco, i canīt play any other games this rocks! I wanīt also make 18 holes and buy new courses from Florida etc. But is there possibility to save your golf courses so that you can built it again afterwards, i know you can play tournaments afterwards, but when you finish it, game quits to desktop.

    I downloaded the demo, and since then I've played nothing but this game. I can't stop playing it.

    It. Is. Killer. Sid's done it again. Shades of Railroad Tycoon.

    Download it, install it, play it. I'm going out on a limb here, and predicting SimGolf as Sleeper of the Year for 2002.

    The 3 hole demo limit is almost painful. I want to make an 18 hole course so bad I can taste it.

    Quick Review : Roller Coaster Tycoon, but golf. The difference is, the club members will come back again and again, and get better at golf with time. So a guy who hates Hole #3 his first time playing it may change his mind once he's played it a few times, or practiced at the putting greens and driving range. So it's much more complex than 'young people like scary rides, while old people like slow ones'. It's dynamic, it changes over time. Your course must be accesible to newbies, yet challenging for your club members.

    In true Sid style, you just need to put down a tee, and a green, and you're off. You learn the rest as you play.

    Get it, get it, get it. You don't need to know anything about golf. If you've watched it on TV for an hour, you know everything you need to have fun. So have fun.
