      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      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

  9. Hello,

    UPDATE: THIS MOD IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH CITIES XL 2011
    (I am sorry but I discoverd this mod is not compatible with Cities XL 2011, it will still work for Cities XL 2009.  I am posting another version of this mod just for CXL 2011.  Thank You)


    This is an update to my Terraforming mod with additional options. It includes the same 5 extra sizes for leveling the ground plus New options for the variable raise lower ground.  There are 3 different sizes for circle and square brush options.

    I have included French and German localization.

    This Mod only works for Cities XL 2009.

    It would be possible to add square brushes to the 8 different sizes of the flatten tool if people show in interest in that option.

    Directions:  Download the file "mod_pharmist_xtra_terraform_options_1.0.5.patch" and place it in the Paks folder inside your Cities XL 2009 installation. 

    Please notify me of any problems or comments about this Mod.

  12. Airport pack, the first and real edition!
    v1.00 released 15/02/2011

    Update 1.01 (19/02/2011): airport main building now can be merged in tarmac texture.

    (hope it's not oversized - 20Mb - I couldn't find the maximum size)

    Works with CitiesXL 2011 only!
    You can find a compatible version here (but without airport buildings)...

    What is it:
    The airport pack is an addon for CXL that adds ploppable airplanes, airport buildings, tarmac plaza and road. This is a new kind of mod, since it uses a whole new menu, to better organize things.
    The release of this pack was planned for 25th December (a nice gift from us); however Exa had problems in real life, so we had to delay the relase...

    What's included:
    20 ploppable airplanes (made by Exalight)
    1 Hangar
    1 Airport tower + offices
    1 plaza
    1 road

    How to use it:
    * Download, extract and put the .patch in paks folder
    * In Transport Inter-city menu you'll find a new button (airport project)
    * Click it and a new panel  will pop up
    * Open the menu and place buildings you like
    * Click on the red arrow to validate the project
    * (tarmac plaza is in plaza menu)

    What is planned:
    The pack is not complete (and at the moment, not very comfortable). However, this is what I and Exalight managed to do. Once we find a way to unlock them, we'll release an update to this pack, with airport props (stairsbus, luggages ...).

    5 languages supported.
    If you have other airport packs, you need to remove them if you want to use this (it will work without problems, but planes will be cloned).

  13. Due the original Brisbane transportation pack dissappeared (processed on for weeks now) I asked for premission to upload it a second time. I also updated it to give you more possibilities of usage.

    Vehicles:
    3 buses:
    Scania L94UB (Med Brisbane city bus)
    Fictional small brisbane city bus
    Fictional Mt.Gravatt double decker bus.
    2Trains:
    QR EMU88
    QR EMU226


    The Skimbo(STEX) account is created because of a STEX upload bug.
    I asked Cockatoo-210893 for premission.

    My third bus for CXL, this mod replaces the normal bus with a Dutch Connexxion bus (does not change the mesh).

  15. "Sometimes I feel like my 8Gb of ram and my new ATI Radeon are wasted with this game"
    (GlobexCo with a small city before this mod)

    "Time to turn on the extra fan"
    (GlobexCo with a big city after this mod)

    Super High Graphic Settings
    for CitiesXL - version 1

    Low-poly lods are just horrible in a big city, especially at night... with low quality textures applied to low quality buildings.
    And of course that stupid black box instead of real cars is worse than any other things!

    read me please!
    This mod has been designed to push CXL render engine to maximum. Cars show at any zoom (except the last and further one, when cars are too small to be rendered correctly - and so the game simply doesn't render them). Same thing for people walking. Buidings now use the same model at any zoom.

    To really enjoy this mod you need a big, high definition screen... or littlest details will become just "pixels together".
    You need 4Gb or more of ram, especially for big cities - or the game may crashes for insufficient memory. You need a very good graphic card to render all those polys and to show something good.
    Not related to this mod, but since it's summer and hot, you may want to buy a better fan for your pc (or an extra fan to put under your laptop) so temperature won't reach critical levels.

    Of course, use this mod at your own risk. I'm not responsible of melt mother boards  .

    If you meet all these specs, then download the mod, your city pictures will look better!

    how to install
    * download the .zip archive
    * extract the content (a .patch file) in your paks folder (C:/installation folder/CitiesXL/Paks)
    * Check that graphic options is set to "high"
    * You don't need to touch anything more in that option panel
    * Play

    more info
    if you still don't believe - or not understand - what I'm talking about, then look at these two pictures:

    before:


    after:

    Look at the cinema, in the first picture is horrible!
    Now look at the farm road, there's a black box in the center... now look at the second picture, in front of the mall: can you see that white car?

    Updates:
    I don't think I'll update the mod... Anyway, I left trees quality at default settings, since there are a lot of polys in a tree model, and it will take years to load big landscapes.

  16. I made this pack together with MircoMarco, it contains the following:

    3 Buses that replace the german buses in the colour sceme of Hamburg's Hochbahn AG.

    1 Train of Hochbahn AG (Type DT3-E)
    The train is delivered in three versions, install only ONE of them.

    ADDON(ALL) - Train is added as additional vehicle to the game and appears everywhere
    ADDON(GER) - Train is added as additional vehicle to the game and appears at cities with german roads only
    ReplaceUS - Train replaces the default US skin in the game.





    Small info: Combine this set with the german skin of my CXL doubledecker Pack for optimal german look.

  18. This mod is an Auto Hotkey™ script, that essentially makes the WASD behave like the Arrow keys. This allows you to use the WASD keys to move the camera. Turning the camera works as well.

  21. Maarten's Light Replacement Mod (LRM) for CitiesXL - Version 1.1

    This mod replaces the standard streetlight patterns with customized streetlight patterns. Not only does the mod replace the streetlights , it also changes their position of placement. One of the main reasons I made this mod, is to get rid of that silly standard streetlight on the roads and great avenues that's more suited for parking Lots. Also, this mod contains a file that places lights on the median of the Freeways. So get ready to change the looks of your streets in Cities XL! Installation
    The ZIP-file contains the following files:
    - Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Freeway.patch
    Adds lights to your freeways

    - Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Expressway.patch
    Changes the streetlight patterns on the expressways

    - Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Avenue.patch
    Changes the streetlight patterns on the avenues (Both Small and Great Avenue)

    - Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Road.patch
    Changes the streetlight patterns on the roads

    - Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Street.patch
    Changes the streetlight patterns on the roads

    To install the LRM, unpack the files and place the files into the "Cities XL\Paks"-directory. You can also choose to install components of this mod you like (for example, you can leave Mod_MRTNRLN_CXL_LRM_Freeway.patch if you don't want lights on your freeways).
    Uninstallation
    To uninstall the LRM, delete the PATCH-files from your plugins folder Compatibility
    This mod is compatible with all other mods currently available (June 13, 2010). It's also compatible with [Mod]Multiple road addon mod, where the LRM also replaces the streetlight patters on the LUX-roads.
    This mod is NOT compatible with the Freeway Bridge mod. Dependencies
    Since it only uses existing CitiesXL models, there are no dependencies.
      Bugfixes
    v1.0 >> v1.1 Fixed crosswalk bug at the Expressways. The previous version of the LRM disabled crosswalks on the Expressways Fixed busstop bug for avenues. The previous version of the LRM disabled the placement of busstops on aveneus. Picture

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for testing megabytesz

    Fed up of boxes for cars, Grey silhouettes for people & empty roads when you zoom out?

    Here is your solution, Cars are now visible as a car on the four nearest zoom levels and people are visible as people on the 3 nearest zoom levels!

    Install
    Download the file
    Open the .zip using Explorer, WinZip, WinRar or 7zip (recomended)
    Then just drop the .patch file in your Paks folder, default (C:\Program Files\Monte Cristo\Cities XL\Paks)

    Tested and works with 1.1.0.457, not tested but should work with ALL graphics levels.
    If your game barely runs on Very Low this mod may slow your game more.

    Will not work with graphics levels mods e.g. GlobexCo's Super-High Graphic Settings.
    Credit goes to GlobexCo for the idea, If your computer can eaisily handle the game on the High settings GlobexCo's Super-High Graphic Settings mod might be a better idea.

    The second bus for CXL, this mod replaces the normal bus with a LA Metro Rapid livery (does not change the mesh).

    The lights still need some work but I should have that fixed soon.

  25. The Heuliez GX317 is one of the buses most french are used to.... if they live in a french city.

    This pack contains this bus in three different colour scemes of three different companies:




    See some more motives HERE

    All of theese three busskins are ADD ONs, they do not replace any vehicle, are compartible with all other mods that replace the french bus, are compartible with all of my texture mods
    The buses appear at french roads only.

    Install: Just unzip and put them into your PACKS folder, I reccomend to create a subfolder called "mods", yo can create as many subfolders as you want, the game hasn't got a problem with that.
    Deinstall: just remove them from the packs folder again.


    PS: Thx to Cockatoo-210893 for helping me to solve my upload problem.
