    I dont remember what version it was, but I loved the one that was teamed up with SimStreets and you could drive through your town.

    This needs to happen for Android.

    There is a SimCity for Android, which helps pass the time on the airplane. Not a bad game. I did forget how to put out fires, so my town burned down after I built an incinerator for all my trash though.

    I have it on CD but it won't play on anything newer than XP. For some reason when I try to use XP compatibility mode it still wont work.

    DosBox is what you need. 16-bit programs do not run on Vista/7 because they are not DOS based. Also a good security feature.

    Would some type of DOS emulator work? I don't have a copy anymore, but would love to play if it works!

    Re: Sim City

    I'd love a new SimFarm, still gets some play from me when I visit her on her Windows 95 machine.

    Preferably one where Oranges didn't grow in any climate and always were the most valuable crop!

    Re: Sim City

    I played the **** out of SimCity and SimFarm. And then I got SimCity 2000 and SimCopter. I think I was one of the 25 people who ever bought SimCopter. The graphics were bad, but I could fly around in my cities.
