      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

  1. ***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.

    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!

  2. 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.

    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.

  10. 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.

    Voulp.

  12. 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!

  13. 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,

  14. Hey all, this is another map that has truck loads of resources.  It replaces 'The Lake Lands'.  The reason for that is that I couldn't get it working on other maps so this one had to do.

  18. And here is the second version of the future regions: New York'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.

    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 (you may edit it using “paint”)
    4: Open the new region with your SC4 TF.
    5: In the "Global Tools" menu select "Import Image" and browse my greyscale file named "New York 2050 v02.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.*** In the photos above I have used Cycledogg’s Desert Terrain Mod, which gives a more realistic look, especially with the lower sea level.

    Please rate, and rate fairly. Comments welcome (I would like to have a true opinion about my uploads).

    For other comments, bugs, ideas etc. I have already posted in the forums in the Map Community Board Room. The topic’s name is Flooded Regions. I will soon post for the dry regions.

  21. This is a accurate scaled map of Hong Kong. This map is 112 large city tiles. I used the columbus terrain mod to open the tiles, you can find it here:
     
    http://www.simtropolis.com/STEX/index.cfm?id=13804
     
    You will need SC4Mapper to use this map found here:
     
    http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=355&threadid=83832&enterthread=y
     
    To install SC4M map file:
    1. If you don't already have SC4Mapper, download it here and follow the install instructions.
    2. Unzip this file.
    3. Run SC4Mapper, click on 'create region'
    4. Choose SC4M
    5. Browse to the unzipped folder and point the map file .SC4M
    6. Click on 'Save Region' and name it, and Quit SC4Mapper
    7. Run SC4 and load the new region. The colors of the region in SC4 will be the same colors as SC4Mapper until you enter and save each city tile. But you have the choice to do it as you go and not right away.
    Start opening tiles!

  25. New Horizons Productions

    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.
