SimCity 2000 Dos Credits
Official Credits for SimCity 2000 for DOS
SimCity 2000 has been copyrighted by Maxis in 1993. Honest.
Fred Haslam & Will Wright spent altogether too much of their lives thinking
about SimCity 2000 and bringing it to life on the Macintosh.
Jon Ross gave
up a year of his life dodging producers and sales people to bring you this
DOS version of SimCity 2000.
Daniel Browning, not only coded mass quantities
of SimCity 2000 DOS, but added years to the lives of many Maxoids through
his series of e-mail health messages.
James Turner spent many hours helping
Mighty Jon and Healthy Dan.
Brian Conrad herded the cats to keep their bytes
aligned and objects oriented.
Don Walters managed to get everything to happen
without pulling ALL of his hair out.
Jenny Martin cracked the whip while Suzie
Greene, Bonnie Borucki, Kelli Pearson & Eben Sorkin created the pretty pictures
in this product.
Sue Kasper gave up a promising career as a karaoke singer to
create the music for SimCity 2000.
Brian Conrad and Michael Perry kept the
orchestra in tune with cool tones by the Fat Man.
The Maxis Sample Heds stayed
up dark nights in late rooms making weird noises into micro phones.
Debra Larson, Chris Weiss, VERBed over an ADJECTIVE NOUN for hours on end to
create the EXCLAMATION SimCity 2000 Newspaper.

Reese & Archive Photos of New York City (an upcoming scenario).
ourselves into reality we called upon: Bruce Joffe (GIS Consultant), Craig
Christenson (National Renewable Energy Laboratory), Ray Gatchalian (Oakland
Fire Department), Diane L. Zahm (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) Michael
Bremer got sick of us moaning over his puns, so he sat down and put them in
another fantastic manual. (so now you too can moan over his puns).
& Debra Larson made sure at least half of Michael's puns were funny an speld
Vera Jaye made sure that the SimCity 2000 box and manual wasn't just
another face in the crowd.
David Caggiano pushed words and pictures around on
pages with perennial persistence until the peak of perfection. Kristine Brogno
made sure that Vera's & Dave's shoes (and loose ends) were tied.
invented ways to make people who had never heard of SimCity 2000 buy this
Ileana Seander and her funky-spunky bunch made sure that
all the stores have SimCity 2000, just for YOU!
Alan Barton forced Don Horat,
Roger Johnsen, Kevin O'Hare and Chris Weiss to play SimCity 2000 for hours at
gun point to make sure everything worked like it was supposed to -- and without
a single homicide or bout of (permanent) insanity during the entire infamous
marathon testing sessions. And the pizza dude lessened the risk of cannibalism.
(Historical Note: Chris Weiss ate his mouse.)
These gallant testers were
aided by the rest of the Maxis testing crew: Rob McNamara, Steve Perrin,
Kirk Lesser, Carter Lipscomb, Chris Blackwell, Peter Alau, Michael Perry,
Jim Siefert, Tari Kobylanski and every other person at Maxis who had a DOS
If (heaven forbid) you have a problem with SimCity 2000 and need to
talk to someone, chances are you'll be hearing the charming voice of Carter
Lipscomb, Chris Blackwell, Peter Alau, or Kirk Lesser.
Everyone who worked on
the project felt for one reason or another these people deserved special
mention: Joe Scirica for making sure we stayed out of jail, passed Go and
collected $200. Jeff Braun, who loves Maxis, runs Maxis, and IS Maxis (and
we thank him for that). Jim Siefert for comic relief. Bob Derber for keeping
us out of court and similar note worthy achievements. Michael Perry, because
he has long hair and we don't. Cassidy Wright and Joell Jones who had to put
up with Will's weird hours. Michael Wyman & Bob Sombriofor special news
bulletins. Everyone else who punches the clock at Maxis (like it's the worst
job we could find). Jon would like to thank these people for making this
port easier: Dwane Strong at MetaGraphics George at Rational Systems, John
Miles at Miles Design, The Fat Man Paul Schmidt at Photodex, George and Denny
(and even Slo-Mo Pete) at the Casa Orinda for many excellent free peanuts and
something to wash them down with. The nice people downstairs at Caffe Teatro
(even if Chris and Lionel work there),who sell us gallons of coffee every day
because we need it. Victor Romero, the cleaning guy Lucy and Lola The Amazing
Flying Puglets Jon's never-ending supply of antacids.
You must be bored if
you sat though all that...Here is your reward: Jon's favorite joke!
These 3 strings walk into a bar. The first one goes to the bartender and says,
"gimme a drink" and the bartender says "I'm sorry but we don't serve strings
here." So the second string thinks that maybe if he asks nice the bartender
will give him a drink. So the second string says to the bartender,
"'scuse me sir, could I please have a drink sir, if it's not too much trouble?
"And the bartender says," I'm sorry, but we don't serve strings here, get out.
"So the third string goes into the bathroom, bends himself into a loop, and
messes up his hair. He walks up to the bartender, and the bartender says
"excuse me, but aren't you a string?" And the string replies, "Nope. I'm a
frayed knot. "AH! get it?! A FRAYED KNOT!! ha!!! hahahhahahaha! Bad Jonny,
stay on the paper....sorry...Creative Voice File.
