Actually, speaking of #MaxisWhy
Do you think like when TS2 was being created, and some poor sucker at Maxis sat down to build all the premade lots, some type of boss-man would come over to their cubicle like
“Hey Ted, what’chu working on?”
“Oh, you know… just this rectangular box with these asymmetrically placed windows and this toilet shack and this traffic jam waiting to happen.”
And the boss-man would just be like
“That’s cool man, keep up the good work.”
I’m totally imagining this in a total Windows 95 office setting with huge, white box-monitors and everyone wearing huge, thick lensed glasses and faded jeans pulled really high up with pique shirts tucked into them and washed out 80s trainers… that indescribable droll humming of old computers and slow-spinning ceiling fans and the sound of someone shredding paper (probably lists titled “good ideas”) in the distance. Stale smell of coffee. A dying ficus in the corner.
Am I painting you a nice picture here?
