I've been playing SimCity 4 Deluxe off and on for a couple of years in Wine. I bind the process to one core and run it in a virtual desktop. No crashes, and the only graphical issue I have is the occasional flickering tooltips, which is known to be a problem with nvidia cards.

The command I use to start it:

taskset -c 0 env WINEPREFIX=/home/dimesio/sc4 wine '/home/dimesio/sc4/drive_c/Program Files/Maxis/SimCity 4 Deluxe/simcity 4.exe' -d:opengl -intro:off
