SimCity lets you be the mayor of a city. Through careful planning, you can watch your city grow from a small village to a thriving metropolis. While SimCity 2000 was miles ahead of its precursor, the original SimCity still provides plenty of fun, and will even run on a Mac Plus.

The patch file updates to 1.5, not 2.0 (is there even a 2.0 patch for the Mac version of the game?) and the PPC/Quadra download already has the patch applied, including all content that comes with the patch download

I have tested simcity 2.0 updater on power mac G4 1.25 Gz mirror door 2003 and mini vmac II in 256 colors and it will update to 1.5 version but will not update to 2.0. The read file said Quadra and power mac. It will not work on mini vmac plus because the update said needs more memory. I will update 1.4 and 1.4c to 1.5 with updater. Simcity 2.0 updater is wrong said it will update to 2.0.

The files I have uploaded came from MCP back in 2012 or before, and were probably on another page. However, I am not sure if he provided this copy of the 2.0 updater from 1.4/1.4c and I have not tested it.

FYI: In the nonPPC archive, MCP has included the box art for SimCity Supreme, an early upgrade for colour Macs. It features a Godzilla-like monster on the cover, rather than a tornado.

Oh they won't, I'm pretty sure I saw SimCity there... plus they don't just save websites.

EDIT: The only thing that I don't understand, is why EA doesn't want their decaying classics to be archived and preserved (in an archive).

Not sure which version this is but here is a non-direct link to a file that is almost 21.9MB in size. It is an sit.img image simply title SimCity Classic.

Have fun downloading this one because your download will be capped to 25.6 Kilobytes a second.

It's a copyright issue. The game can be found all over the web, just google the game title and keywords like macintosh or abandonware.
