  1. Here's a personal idea of how New York's region will be in 2050.
    In fact, I was inspired by creator's 2050 lots and I came up to that region.
    Most of the ice of Antarctica has melted and the sea level  raised, disappearing all the seaside cities, like New York.

    Your mission as a mayor is to give back life to that deserted region and try to do what the previous mayors did - to make such a large city.

    There is enough flat room for a big city to develop.

    The region is a regular one (16x16 km), composed of 16 large cities.

    YOU NEED THE SC4 TERRAFORMER v09.c TO RUN THE REGION!!!

    Instructions:
    1: Download the zip file and unzip its files in a specific place in your computer.
    2: In your "regions" folder (My Documents) create a new region.
    3: From the zip copy the config.bmp and replace the old one in your regions.
    4: Open the new region with your SC4 TF.
    5: In the "Global Tools" menu select "Import Image" and browse my greyscale file named "NewYorkFlood.png". Then click OK.
    6: When the region appears, click File, Save. The region will be saved in the game. Enjoy!!!

    ***The colours won't change unless you enter and save each city, one by one.***

    This is my first upload to the STEX so please rate, and rate fairly. Comments welcome.

    For other comments, bugs, ideas etc. I'll post in the forums in the Map Community Board Room in a few days.

  2. Gooooooooooood morning Montreal (think Robin Williams).  Phew.  This map has taken me two insanely long weeks(on and off) to get working.  So here it is, Montreal.  This map has no erosion effects, is completely flat and has resources everywhere. 

    Delete any cities you have made on the original map, then out this file in your PAK folder.  Or even better, make a folder within your PAK folder called 'MAPS' and 'MODS.  Keeps things neat and easier to delete.

    This map replaces 'The Green Hills'.

    You will also need the file, 'mods required for new maps.patch' for the resources to work. 
    You can find it here,

  4. For those of you who need a clean slate to build your dream city, I have created an empty map. I have used Neidhards' Cities XL map editor. The map is based on the example map, so many thanks to him for both the tool and the map. This map has 100% connections, 100% fertile area's and 100% fuel. The map replaces the Mount st. Helens map. Copy both files from the archive to the paks folder and you're ready to go!

  5. ***Updated 16/09/2007: Fixed the sea bed depth near the map edges.

    This map contains the Central and East Macedonia Region in Greece. Includes Mt Olympus, the Halkidiki peninsulas and island Thasos, as well as lakes and major rivers. The terrain is mixed, with both plains (for easy development) and mountains (to challenge you), and a variety of water formations. So it is suitable for all kinds of development (industry, farms, ports, tourist etc) and has the potential of using all forms of transportation. In other words, a very playable map.
    For full size preview images click on the thumbnails below:


    Credits
    - Special thanks to beskhu3epnm for his advice and help, as well as for reviewing and testing this map.

    The upload contains the needed plugins for the import, as well as instructions for importing the map correctly, and combining the map with rock and terrain mods. Please read the instructions carefully.
    The map is quite large (13x7 large cities), and rendering may take between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the speed of your computer. The config.bmp consists almost entrirely of big city tiles.
    Enjoy!

    NHP Mount Everest Version A
    By moganite

    This is a 16 bit map of the mount Everest region
    The A version of the Mount Everest region has dimensions of 40x 40 tiles There is also a second Version of the same region covering 48x48 tiles and includes the 5th highest mountain that region is pending aproval to upload as it just exceeds the 10 MB limit.

    This resgion has been smothed heavily as there is a lack of data nd interpolation was used to fill the gaps. There is also evidence of blockiness due to a lack of accurate data in this region. Both of these are the result of the steepness of the area and its glacial nature over signifigant portions of the map.

    The Everest A map has the slightly larger elevation range and some of the land is below water the water level is 3000 m above sea level.

    Trivia
    This region is the highest overall on the planet and the lowest points on these map are more than 3 km above sealevel and almost entirely above the treeline at this lattitude. Sitting on the Chinese Nepalese border this mountain is the highest point on land and is sacred to the local tibetan peoples and refers to as Chomolungma. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first ascent of the montain in 1953.

  12. Hi everyone,  this map has a large bay area with a few islands and tropical waters.  And lots of trees in those waters, so you might want to bulldoze them.  There is a couple of mountains but the rest of the terrain is much flatter with sloping hills that overlook the bay. 

    This map replaces 'The Tropical Island'

    Put it in your PAKS folder.

    Hello, this a map of Mombasa. Darani sended me a request, for this map. I have only heard of this City, but i have to say the city looks very nice.

    There are two maps to replace. You can replace the Peninsula and the Grand Canyon.. look pictures.. put the .patch into the pak folder of your Cities XL 2011. Maybe it is compatible with Cities XL 2009.

    On the center island there is a lot of tourism. on each island there is one resource.

    this map replace "Mountain Lake", but you have got to delete some trees, because they are in the water.
    I advise to use the bulldozer mod: www.citiesxs.net/forum/index.php/topic,935.0.html

  15. As promised, here it is. In fact, I even posted the Config file as the secondary screenshot. After this one's posted it'll be the same with the others too. All you have to do is right-click on it and hit save as and throw it in the Break County folder as a .bmp file. NOTE: You'll need SC4 Terraformer to have this region. But then again, who doesen't have it? Oh, and yes, I still obey my two region-making laws. Good amout of water (touching at least 10 pixels worth) and a desant amount of land in each city.

    Yeah, and sorry, but the config can't go perfectly, you're going to have to edit it a bit and revert it to bmp for it to work. It just has to blend when it goes jpeg.

  17. And here is the second version of the dry regions: San Fransisco’s region in many, many years, dry, deserted and empty. That region is actually another view of earth in the future, not with floods, but the opposite.
    Your mission as a mayor is to give back life to that deserted region and try to do what the previous mayors did - to make such a large city.

    There is enough flat room for a big city to develop plus a few steep mounts and hills. At the shoreline the land is not so easy to build, but I think it is more realistic (for a no-water situation).

    The region is a regular one (16x16 km), composed of 16 large cities.

  20. NOW UPDATED!!!!!!!!!       PLEASE READ!!!!!

    Someone told me that the Flooded version is quite the same as the real San Fransisco, and he is right!!!

    So, a new greyscale image is in the zip folder, with Edited Flooded San Fransisco.

    Now I think it looks much more realistic/flooded.

    Note that the first image is the update from SC4 TF, but the second is the region before.

    The “flooded region project” continues! Here's the second flooded region in my series in 2050.
    Creator’s 2050 lots gave me the basic idea.
    Now, you know the story: Most of the ice of Antarctica has melted… bla bla bla so here you have the result in San Fransisco.
    Your mission as a mayor is to give back life to that deserted region and try to do what the previous mayors did - to make such a large city.

    This time there is less flat room and many steep hills and mountains, making the “DreamCity” building a challenge. I have also modified the region with SC4 TF a bit, just for a better result. I also made it 16x16 km from 15x15 it was. All the cities (16) are large.

    YOU NEED THE SC4 TERRAFORMER v09.c TO RUN THE REGION!!!

    Instructions:
    1: Download the zip file and unzip its files in a specific place in your computer.
    2: In your "regions" folder (My Documents) create a new region.
    3: From the zip copy the config.bmp and replace the old one in your regions.
    4: Open the new region with your SC4 TF.
    5: In the "Global Tools" menu select "Import Image" and browse my greyscale file named "San Fransisco Flooded.png". Then click OK.
    6: When the region appears, click File, Save. The region will be saved in the game. Enjoy!!!

    This region is a revisit of the Mount Kaputar region near Narrabri some portions of this map May appear in the Narrabri region also.

    Its dimensions are 38 x 38 km

    Trivia

    This area is on the edge of the Namoi river valley about 40 km east of my hometown. It is extremely rugged terrain and is a national park with some agriculture, mining and forrest in the foot hills. As far as i know this mountain is the highest point west of the great dividing range at 1510 m above sea level.
