The only version (that I am aware of). This version also seems to be abandonware*, and is posted on *I am not sure about this. It is available as such at various sites, but I haven't seen any conclusive documentation of its abandonment.

What works

Almost everything (important) works. Simulation runs smoothly, models, graphs, evolution, placing objects, creatures, and so on. Save and load work correctly. Globe view, as well as all options associated, work. Note that the Gaia view (displaces a globe with a face) causes the program to lag, but not crash (as far as tested). Successfully installed from original compact disc on Windows XP mode.

What does not

-Sound (music, sound effects, and so on) do not work. -Cannot scroll with arrow keys. -The game will not run from the CD, it must be installed locally on the C: drive. -Electronic registration does not work. It seems to be a wine problem, but I doubt that the registration services at Maxis still run for this program. -This game will not run on Wine's Windows 3.1, despite the CD proclaiming its requirements to be Windows 3.1+.


What was not tested

-Nothing in-game once installed (every feature I could think of was tested). -Downloadable abandonware SimEarth zip file was not tested; Only the original installer was tested.
