- Note: This article is about a fictional in-game location, not the Maxis-created video game series of the same name.
SimCity is the city in which all of the games in The Sims series are based and is a major city in SimNation. Many products and services come from SimCity. Buy Mode items are also apparently made there as well. The city is apparently a global city.
The Sims eraEdit
In The Sims, The Sims for console, and The Sims Bustin' Out for console, the newspaper is called "SimCity Times," and many services are labeled "SimCity." In The Sims: Hot Date, the main stretch of community beach is named "SimCity Beach," implying that Downtown is part of SimCity. Also, when first loading The Sims: Unleashed, Old Town is described as "SimCity's new historic Old Town district," which confirms that Old Town is part of SimCity. When first loading The Sims: Makin' Magic, Magic Town is mentioned as "SimCity's own Magic Town," which implies that it is also part of SimCity, though the rural setting and lack of streets suggests that it may be near enough to be considered part of a "Greater SimCity". Vacation Island is separate from the city, and it can be debated whether or not Studio Town is separate. It can be concluded that Neighborhood 1, Neighborhood 2, Old Town, Downtown, and SimValley are districts/suburbs of SimCity.
The Sims 2 eraEdit
In The Sims 2, the newspaper and many city services and agencies are labeled "SimCity." This seems to indicate that the Neighborhood is in or directly adjacent to SimCity. While it is debatable for other neighborhoods such as Veronaville and Strangetown, Pleasantview is definitely a part of the city. In The Sims Pet Stories, Arbor Falls is mentioned to be nestled in the mountains of SimCity.
The Politics career in The Sims and The Sims 2 describe SimCity as being the state capital where the State Assembly is held. The state can be inferred as being Sim State, due to the name of Sim State University and its proximity to the city (if, as assumed, the university is part of SimCity). It is not explicitly mentioned if SimCity is also the national capital of SimNation, though many players assume that it is.
