Yeah you can download it for free from somewhere.  I'll post details on where to get it later.

Random, and off topic, but what is a "Smiley War Simulation"?

Its one of my favorite games. I Also recomentd "Sim Life" and "Evolution: The Game of Intlligent Life"

Sim Life
http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?name=SimLife+for+Windows

Evolution
http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?gameid=4819

I actually have a legal CD of this game. Cost me someting like 5 bucks...

I got it on a CD back in the Day with the "Maxis Collections 2: Sim Classics" which had Sim City, Sim Earth and Sim Farm. I already had Sim City but ti was for dos so i was glad to get it for windows at the time.

Those were the days :D

Just a note that I tried to download that and after a long time of frustration I still didn't get it to play. It might be my computer, which is probably the reason, but just be forewarned. Though it sounds like an awsome game from what Hydro told me...

I liked the SNES version of Sim Earth better than the original, more animation and doesnt look like total crap.

Download simearth.zip from this site:

http://websagacity.com/downloads/

This is a windows version of the game, the graphics are so much better than the DOS version, plus you don't need a password for this version, like you do for the DOS version.

If you get the sound to work, let me know cos I've never got the sound to work.

Have fun!

ehrm...Never played the game, but I've heard all about it, not sure I'd want to download it off the internet. even though they don't sell it retail anymore It'd feel like I was Ripping off maxis...(Not to mention they read this site so...)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

The 'Sound' plays off your actual internal computer, so I think only older computers can physically produce the noise.
