Additional Comments

Workaround crucial for starting the game

Starting the game simply from wine in the terminal throws errors at you, so from testing on Linux Mint and Pop_OS! this way of launching the game did not work for me, however there is a workaround. 
!!You require Lutris for this!!

Open Lutris and add a game, use the executable in SIMTOWN.EXE (found in the location the game was installed). 
Use wine as the runner, but use the version tkg-4.6-x86_64
Game should start up perfectly, if not I found this solution by experimenting with the versions so it is worth a try.
