Take a Tour of Freeland
What began just over a century ago as a small campsite by some adventurous but tired tourists from a distant place known as Stickworld, is now a thriving metropolis with just over half a million residents. The Greater Freeland Area has a diverse population and as such has a wide range of neighborhoods in which to live and work.

The Freeland Collaborative
Freeland was formed in 2000 by a group of veteran SimCity Designers who were looking to build a home away from the official Maxis site to offer their custom works in an environment that mirrored the spirit of the game itself. Although the site grew and changed tremendously over the years, the underlying concept remained the same - Freeland was a collaboration of independent artists and designers who shared a similar philosophy about how to work together. We had no staff. We had no moderators or explicit heirarchy of any kind. We had very few rules and regulations as well. We did have respect and admiration for each other and our visitors though. We also had endless imagination and a ton of projects under our collective belts. But mostly we had fun. So whether it was working on one of our infamous collaborations or just chatting it up in Murphy's Pub, we kept things in perspective: We took great pride in what we made, but SimCity was just a game and in the end we were just fans trying to enjoy it a little more with our friends and visitors. And enjoy it we did. We hope you did too. Thanks for the memories and welcome to Freeland.

years, it was time to create a city to show off that work. Threeland is not only that showcase, but also a dedication to all the creative SC3 Designers who made their mark in SimCity history. Visit Threeland
