I remember from a night shift in Ijmuiden. A colleague had put the damned game on our Hydro/Meteo computer and played it for hours. As you probably know you can't turn out the engine noise and everyone was going mad because of that ghastly whistling noise. To make a long story short, at 0330 in the morning there was a thunder storm outside and my colleague had to go to the bathroom.
While he was away we changed the name of one of the files causing F19 to crash rather dismally. Told my colleague that the tower had been hit by lightning while he was taking a leak, causing the file to get corrupted. Had a hell of job to keep from laughing.
Thanks for jogging my memory I enjoyed your virtual museum. Brought back memories of Sims that I played on a long procession of computers, and it made me realise once again how far Sims have come. I think a lot of people take the quality of the modern sims for granted."
Thanks for a great visit, Julian Sallows
