Topic: New Navigation Idea

Your Opinion Needed

Hey Everyone:

The Sim Network, has undergone minor changes since it first launched its current design on February of 1999. Now, for the fourth step, I'm looking to add a new navigation system to the Sim Network, one that will allow all pages to be accessed from all other pages...

For instance, right now, you can't access the BAT Directory from the home page, nor can you access the Sims Centre Overview from the Homepage, BAT Directory, or most of the other pages on the site. With the new upgrade, every page will be incorporated and conveniently separated by category (i.e. TheSims, City XChange, MacRoom, and SimCity).

Some prior ideas, and why I am not going to take them into consideration:

+ Add Mouseover Effect - The main reason I'm not adding the mouseover effect, is that it turns out to be alot of work to edit each page's code, and insert the preload javascript.. Which will in turn, screw up the Hitbox counter; Also, some pages use purple for the style attribute, so that would be even more of a hassle making a separate purple set of images.

+ Change the Colours - The main reason I will not be changing the colours, is as with the previous page, they blend in very nicely. Too much green would eventually clash with the blue border, and blue would be too bland..

Send your comments on the system to simnwtk@prodigy.net

Sim Network Celebrates One Year on the Web!
http://simntwk.cjb.net - For Immediate Release

July 7th, 1999, just ten days ago, marks the official first anniversary of the Sim Network. Many of you probably had no idea the site existed a year ago, as it was poorly publicized, located on Geocities, and updates were few and far between. In December of 1998, the step was taken to totally revamp the Sim Network and launch a new design, one that incorporated news on the front page, definately following in with the trend of SimCity 3000 sites at the time. Later, in February, the Sim Network was remodeled, and what you see today was launched, minus a few touches that have been added along the way.

In celebration with the reopening, the Sims Centre has landed an interview with Maxis' Patrick Barrett, reguarding TheSims, and have started a program called, Ask Maxis, where visitors can submit their questions reguarding TheSims.

Thanks! And check it out and give me your opinions!
