SimCity 2000 Windows 95 Credits

Contributed by Matt Stasiak )

SimCity 2000 has been copyrighted by Maxis in 1995.

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

Chris Blackwell converted this program to use Win32 and to the Windows 95 interface in less than the 1 day suggested in the MS manual. NOT!

James Turner and Heather Mace slaved many hours over hot compilers to produce the 16 Bit Windows version.

Chris Weiss made sure people were doing what they were supposed to be doing when they were supposed to be doing it and still managed to look like he didn't know what he was doing. (What an actor!)

Mick Foley shot shapes and packed them into a city.

Jenny Martin and Sharon Perry ensured that Bonnie Borucki, Suzie Greene, 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.

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

Brian Conrad also let us out of our shackles at least twice a day for restroom breaks.

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 (an upcoming scenario).

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 and on-line Windows help file. (so now you too can moan over his puns)

Bob Sombrio mangled and munged the SimCity 2000 Addendum into the fantastically informative document it is today.

(Special thanks to Wextech Systems Inc. for their excellent Windows Help compiler and .DLLs)

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 and Sally Vandershaf invented ways to make people who had never heard of SimCity 2000 buy this stupendous product.

Ileana Seander and her spunky bunch made sure that the stores those people go to actually had SimCity 2000 available for YOU.

Alan Barton witnessed the birth of Sabrina Barton, while Scott Shicoff had to force Marc Meyer Cathy Castro, John Landes, John "Jussi" Ylinen and Michael Gilmartin, Joe Longworth, and Owen Nelson to play SimCity 2000 for hours at gun point and make sure everything worked like it was supposed to.

Bob Chrum and the gang at BSP, Inc. helped Scott and the gang out.

Val Garcia, Kim Vincent, and Martin Chan are our manufacturing team. They're incredible. 'nuff said

Extra special thanks go out to my family and friends (especially PC) who had to put up with me and my general non-existence for a month while I cranked this out.

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 Roger Johnsen, Aaron Shephard, Chris Charman, Jeff Feil, Brian Smith, Tracy Leighton, Ken Mace or Rick Aquistapace. Go easy on them. They're there to help you! :)

Everyone who worked on the project felt for one reason or another these people deserved special mention:

Sam Poole for having a good enough sense of humor to not fire everyone and go into business for himself.

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).

Deborah Gross for making sure Maxis is happy, staffed, and PC.

Robin Harper for coordinating, coagulating, and motivating our rippin' marketing and PR teams.

Bob Derber, who could sue us for not including him in these credits.

Andy Derber, the disco-lovin', pig-farmin', phone-jackin', MIS kinda guy.

Don Walters for being a great mentor and greater pain in the

Jimbo, Mike Perry, John Csicsery, Claire Curtain, Roxy Wolosenko, and the other Mike (Wyman) for their excellent guidance, and constructive (or was it destructive?) criticism.

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).

"Big Al" at Ottino's for replenishing our vital bodily fluids.

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

Jiffyburgers and Mitzbitz

Special thanks to Richard Garfield and the rest of the folks at Wizards of the Coast for causing our boss no end of consternation and causing us to mortage our houses.

These credits were compiled by a team of people who were probably in no condition to be compiling credits when these credits were being compiled.

The spootyStruct lives!
