Trivia

Not all platforms are the same

Assuming that the Electronic Arts Collector release is standard then there are differences between the DOS, WIN3.x and Windows installations.;
  • The DOS install does not have any extras or goodies for the player
  • The WIN 3.x install comes with demo versions of SimTown, SimTower, Widget Workshop and Marty and The Trouble with Cheese, these are on the CD in a folder marked Goodies and have to be installed separately.
  • The Windows installation has a 'Goodies' option on the main menu, this opens a new window to the Goodies folder on the CD where there are Windows demo versions of SimTown and Widget Workshop, again these have to be installed separately
All three installations have 74 cities and 18 scenarios
