    Sounds interesting... i never considered that, i thought water would be vital for at least residential buildings.

    I try to avoid guides of any sort now, it really ruined my first few plays with sc3k to know what to do before i figured it out myself, its half the fun.

    I just got SC4 yesterday and all ive learnt atm is to build a **** load of zoning before building any government buildings (beyond the necessary power/water/transport etc), the upkeep costs are massive! My first city i didnt build my first small fire station until all my industrial sector was on fire. lol

    I used to set a cap on 5-10 kb/s back in the days (= last year), but that was because I had to pay per mb I used (download + upload), so I tried to keep my expensive upload down, but now I don't pay more nomatter how much I download/upload so I have it full speed)...

    Every bit helps. My upload is capped at 20, but that is still twice as much as most people give.


    I used to be able to get 60 up and 300 down when I lived in my old apartment and had first discovered eDonkey.

    now my upload can't get past 20, and the download - despite being capable of much more - averages on 20-30, but only when the file is shared enough that I don't get stuck with mere 1-2kb downloads.


    People also need to clean out their shared folders. With uploads capped at 10 and qeues a mile long, it's no wonder that it's become so stagnate these days.

    Even if I was downloading with full speed all the time, I wont be able to get large files that fast

    I might have to give that a try.... but I switched to eMule because the donkey wasn't working very well for me anymore. The last file I got with it took me three weeks and I don't think it was even 500mb. Now that I'm using eMule again, it's going aswell as eDonkey did when I first started using it - can get most files in a night or two. (I just wish so many people didn't set their upload to 10, the stingy bastards. )

    Haven't tried the new eDonkey client yet, but might want to, sometime in the future (Got other things on my mind at the moment)




    Btw, wasn't this thread about SimCity 4, or was the thread title just to confuse the enemy?

    Tass: Overnet is basically the next-generation eDonkey. You don't need to screw around with a server.met file, it figures it all out on its own. You just launch it, it connects and updates its own server index, then you can search and download.
