  2. It's a very simple, square-ish and almost flat map for Cities XL 2012, replacing either BigIsland_01 (The Tropical Island) or BigIsland_02 (The Two Sisters) or both, depending on which files you unpack. The terrain looks better on the former, but the latter is probably a more useful replacement.

    It has custom textures, lots of place to build, a coast all around for placing ports (or blueprints built on water, like the Alcatraz or oil platform), and fertility everywhere. The Tropical Island version also has oil everywhere. Both have a fair bit of vacation areas from the start. Like the default islands, it has no road or rail connections anywhere, so you WILL need ports and airports.

    It has no ground water by default in the normal game, just like the normal island, BUT if you use Neidhard's resource enabler ( http://www.file-upload.net/download-2360525/mod_requied-for-new-maps.rar.html ) then you'll have underground water reserves everywhere too. It's up to you exactly how much you want to cheat, basically. Personally I'd think an island would get plenty of rainfall to have water for its people, but you can also take it as just a desert island and import your water if you prefer it that way. Or you can use the sandbox mod buildings to give you water.

    The same resource enabler will also give you oil everywhere on The Two Sisters replacement map, if you use that version.

    Either version is a flat and gently rounded square, almost perfectly flat in the middle, and gradually curving down towards the shore line, to meet the water in a gentle slope. It's still more than flat enough to build on in any point.

    It is not based on the altitude data of any real place. It's just an artifficial island with as much place to build as possible, while not having any hard corners or perfectly straight edges, so it basically still looks somewhat natural. If it helps, you can imagine it as an artifficially built island, like Dubai has been building, except bigger.

    There are no trees in water, nor in fact even on the beach.

    I have reduced the ground texture and shadow map to 2048x2048, down from the default 4096x4096, since it seems to run smoother on my computer that way and it's not like a flat map really needs more detail. And the game's terrain multi-texturing makes it look ok up close too anyway.

    To install, just unzip one or both .patch files from the .zip file into your Paks folder. To uninstall, just remove it. (Removing it might, however, break any cities built on the custom map.)

    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to match the height of the map it replaces, and arguably it's not even possible to both have two maps have the same height in any place AND have one be flatter than the other. I.e., it might or might not break existing cities built on the island it replaces. It is highly recommended that you start a new city if you want to use it.

    IMPORTANT NOTE 2: It has only been tested with Cities XL 2012. I have no idea if it works with 2011 or any other version.

    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big island city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

  3. It's a very simple and almost flat map for Cities XL 2012, replacing the Peninsula. It has custom textures, lots of place to build, a coast for placing ports (or blueprints built on water, like the Alcatraz), and all resources almost everywhere. It has road/railroad/highway connections on two out of four sides, so you can haul a lot of cargo even before placing a harbor.

    It's basically like a quarter of a frisbee, almost perfectly flat in the corner opposite to the water, and gradually curving down towards the shore line, to meet the water in a gentle slope. It's still more than flat enough to build on in any point.

    There are no trees in water. In fact, the the shore was actually built around the existing trees. So you don't have to buldoze anything.

    It's inspired by the very flat geography of peninsulas like Denmark or Florida, or rather, coastal places on them rather than the whole peninsula, but it's not based on the actual terrain data of any particular place.

    To install, just unzip the file into your Paks folder. To uninstall, just remove it. (Removing it might, however, break any cities built on the custom map.)

    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to match the height of the map it replaces, and arguably it's not even possible to both have two maps have the same height in any place AND have one be flatter than the other.

    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big coastal city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

  4. It's a very simple flat map for Cities XL 2012 that replaces the Rocky Desert, with a custom texture. Basically you have the whole map available for building whatever you wish.

    Furthermore, I reduced the texture and shadow map to 2048x2048, down from 4096x4096, since it seems to run smoother on my computer this way. And besides, it's not like a flat desert actually needed more detail.

    It has oil everywhere, as well as tourism everywhere.

    It has no water or fertility by default in the normal game, just like the normal desert, BUT if you use Neidhard's resource enabler ( http://www.file-upload.net/download-2360525/mod_requied-for-new-maps.rar.html ) then you'll have underground water reserves and fertility everywhere too. It's up to you exactly how much you want to cheat, basically. You can imagine that it's an otherwise fertile area, if only someone pumps water from underground to irrigate the crops, or you can take it as just a desert and import your food and water. Or you can use the sandbox mod buildings to give you food and water.

    To install it, just unpack the zip file into the Paks folder. To uninstall it, just delete the mod file from the Paks folder. (It might however break any cities built on the modified map.)

    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to have it at the same height as the original map, and arguably it's not even possible to exactly match the height everywhere AND be flatter than the original. The two are mutually incompatible. I.e., it will likely break any existing city that's built on the Rocky Desert map. It's highly recommended that you start a new city if you want to use it.

    IMPORTANT NOTE 2: It has only been tested with Cities XL 2012. I have no idea if it works with 2011 or any other version.

    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big Las Vegas style city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

  5. 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:

    [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=13804"]http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=13804[/url]

    You will need SC4Mapper to use this map found here:

    [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=355&threadid=83832&enterthread=y"]http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=355&threadid=83832&enterthread=y[/url]

    [b]To install SC4M map file:[/b]
    1. If you don't already have [b]SC4Mapper[/b], download it [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=355&threadid=83832&enterthread=y"][b][i]here[/i][/b][/url] and follow the install instructions.
    2. Unzip this file.
    3. Run [b]SC4Mapper[/b], click on 'create region'
    4. Choose [b]SC4M[/b]
    5. Browse to the unzipped folder and point the map file .SC4M
    6. Click on 'Save Region' and name it, and Quit [b]SC4Mapper[/b]
    7. Run SC4 and load the new region. The colors of the region in SC4 will be the same colors as [b]SC4Mapper[/b] 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!

    Special thank you goes to [b]beskhu3epnm[/b] of [b][u]NHP[/u][/b] for helping me make this map possible. if you would like to see more maps from [b][u]NHP[/u][/b], you can go here:

  6. [size="6"][b]Desert Islands[/b][/size]

    a map for cxl2011 (maybe also 2009)


    put the .patch into: C:\Program Files\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2011\!!Paks!!

    there is also a extra bulldozer in the .zip included to delete the trees

    this map replaces the small peninsula. Before you add this mod you should delete the city on this map.. or if you want to have some fun you should not delete it.
    And if you want the old map again, !delete the city! and delete the .patch

  8. 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!

    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.

  11. 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,

  13. 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.
