SimCity 2000 Mac Credits
These credits were transcribed from the Mac version by Yohon Lo

SimCity 2000 1.2 has been copyrighted by Maxis, 1993-95.

Fred Haslam & Will Wright spent altogether too much of their lives thinking about SimCity 2000 and bringing their thoughts to life on the Macintosh.

Mick Foley shot shapes, packed them into a city, and moved SimCity 2000 to the Power Macintosh, while Justin McCormick went bug hunting and caught the big nasty ones. John Lewis even helped a bit. (He'll do anything for some free caffeine.)

Don Walters managed to get everything to happen when it was supposed to happen without pulling his hair out.

Very Special Thanks To: My Maw.

Jenny Martin ensured that Suzie Greene, Bonnie Borucki, Kelli Pearson & Eben Sorkin created the most beautiful graphics ever seen for this product (and they did).

Sue Kasper, Brian Conrad, and Justin McCormick gave up promising careers as karaoke singers to create the music for SimCity 2000.

Halestorm, Inc. gave us the tools to help you hear the sounds of the city as well as a few of those cool sounds.

The Maxis Sample Heds stayed up dark nights in late rooms making weird noises into microphones.

Brian Conrad also made sure we were dialed in to the cool hardware action.

Fred Haslam, Debra Larson, Chris Weiss, VERBed over an ADJECTIVE NOUN for hours on end to create the EXCLAMATION SimCity 2000 Newspaper.

Newspaper pics provided by Lori Reese & Archive Photos of New York City.

To ground 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).

Tom Bentley & Debra Larson made sure at least half of Michael's puns were funny an speld corekly.

Vera Jaye made sure that the SimCity 2000 box wasn't just another face in the crowd.

David Caggiano pushed pictures around on pages with exceptional talent until things looked marvelous.

Kristine Brogno made sure that Vera's & Dave's shoes (and loose ends) were tied.

When Michael couldn't figure out how to play the game, Fred, Will, Don, and Kathleen helped him out. Sometimes.

Additional material for the wonderful, biodegradable manual was contributed by: John "Bean" Hastings, Richard E. Bartlett, AIA, Margo Lockwood, Larry Wilson, David Caggiano, Tom Bentley, Barbara Pollak, Emily Friedman, Keith Ferrell, James Hewes, Joey Holliday, and last, (but assuredly not least) William Holliday.

Larry Lee invented ways to make people who had never heard of SimCity 2000 buy this stupendous sequel.

Sam Poole and his spunky bunch made sure that the stores those people go to actually had SimCity 2000 available for YOU.

Chris Weiss had to force Don Horat, Roger Johnsen, and Manny Granillo to play SimCity 2000 for hours at gunpoint and make sure everything worked like it was supposed to.

In addition to the normal software testing crew: Rob McNamara Steve Perrin Kirk Lesser Carter Lipscomb Chris Blackwell Kevin O'Hare Peter Alau Tari Kobylanski & Bob Sombrio

Alan Barton made sure that Chris never actually pulled the trigger.

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, Kevin O'Hare, 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 noteworthy 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 Sombrio for special news bulletins.

Everyone else who punches the clock at Maxis (like it's the worst job we could find).

George and Denny (and even Slo-Mo Pete) at the Casa-Orinda for many excellent free peanuts and something to wash them down with.

Our good friends: "Big Al", Rose, Kurt, and the rest at Ottino's for lunch, dinner, dessert, TV, and popcorn.

The nice people downstairs at Caffe Teatro who sell us gallons of coffee every day because we need it.

Denny and Jim at Whole Earth Access for lettin' us test on their toys

Victor Romero the cleaning guy

Lisa Lee and The Two Carols (Cabrillo and Lockwood) at Apple's 3rd Party Test Labs.

Lucy and Lola The Amazing Flying Puglets

Jiffyburgers and Mitzbitz

The gang at MindVision software (makers of Developer Vice installation software) for service above and beyond the call of duty.

All the great folks at SkyDance SkyDiving in Davis, CA who let John Lewis hurl himself out of their fine airplanes. (This may seem strange, but he says it helps him relax. Something about work not mattering much when hurtling towards the ground at 120+ MPH.)

These credits were compiled by a team of one hundred during a ten minute break.
