Please help us for June & July 06/20/2017This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do 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 is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. 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.

By Swamper77American Fire Department Units
Detailed Models created by Ripptide
Automata Models created by Swamper77
This download contains a collection of American Fire Department Units. Most of the units are additionals, which means they will appear in addition to the
default fire truck. There is also a folder of replacement
units that will replace the default fire truck. The available choices are:
- Rural Fire Truck
- Pumper Unit 1
- Ladder Unit
The additionals will appear at random when you plop a fire station, dispatch a fire truck, or do UDI with the fire truck. The Fire Chief's car is an additional car that is available once a fire station exists. There isn't a mission script for it at this time and it cannot be dispatched. It has its own icon in the Land Vehicle UDI Catalog. All previous fire stations will need to be replopped for the fire chief's car to appear near them.

By DolphinFoxNew version ships pack. Renamed to Naval pack.
Addided: DD Fletcher and CA Nortgampton.
By SimGooberEvery so often, I have recieved requests for a model to use to add to the BSC Brick Canal set. So I decided to upload it here for simplicity. Please feel free to use this file to make your own additions to this set.
A couple guidelines :
1) Unhide the LODs and see how it is done. The LODs start at ground level and go up. The model is bigger than the LODs so BAT "sees" beyond it, which helps minimize seams.
2) Keep canal sections on a 16m x 16m grid layout. that way they will line up properly with other canal pieces.
3) when practical, render the canal sections separate from buildings and such. The larger the LODs get, the more color shift you will see on the water. This is what causes the water to be darker in some rotations, on some larger models.
The zip file atteached has both the GMAX file, and the textures to use. Depending on where you place the files, you may have to re-assign the texture locations in BAT.
By SimfanatikYo yo yo !
This time we have Soft drink semi-trucks
PEPSI - COKE - & 7-UP. All additional again
Those tractors will hook all previous trailers ( Beer trailers )
and Vice Versa , Matching colors of course !
To install simply extract .dat file into your plugins folder.
All textures are 512x512 HD High Definition .
Enjoy & have fun

By fukudaA container carrier that won't replace the other cargo boats in your harbors.
well, is a huge boat, so I advice you to put some space in your harbors, ;-P
This boat was also a request from yoman3
By RickkI have decided to skip finishing this project for now so that I can concentrate on finishing college and getting a real job. But since I didn't want to see the project abandoned, I've decided to go ahead and upload it to the STEX so that anyone can give it a shot at completion.
As of now, it's about 40% completed, and just needs to have the roof worked on and the base. This would be a great download for any new BATers looking to get a start on something that already has some momentum. Please note that you'll have to stretch the model 3,000% for it to fit in the game, as I like to work with smaller numbers until I'm ready to export.
Big thanks to everyone at SimTrop, especially HONG KONG who managed to get a lot of amazing shots of this tower and its complex, which is located in Hong Kong, China.
Also included in the ZIP file is the beginning for a new version of the Plymouth Arcology, a massive structure that could house 25,000 sims (was originally from SimCity 2000). I hope someone creative can do something with it!
By GlenniHere's a Scania Irizar, it's a fairly common coach ( that's tour/travel buses for those who are unfamiliar with that word) in Europe. The coachwork is done in the Basque region of Spain.
I made textures for three versions, two of them are fit for Left hand Roads, while one is right hand.
Bus Eireann (ireland) (Left hand)
National Express (United Kingdom) (Left hand)
Nor-Way Bussekspress (Norway) (Right hand)
I'm afraid i won't do further reskin resquests, but if you want you may ask Simfanatik for a reaskin.
Wether or not he wants to do it is entirely his decision though, so don't overload him with work.
Please also note that in order for the 512X512 textures to appear, the game msut be in hardware mode.
As earlier this model including textures was made by me
Modding, lightning and anything else was done by Simfanatik.
This is nakheel tower for simcity 4, no deception, only for users of 3dsmax, gmax users is coming soon, )in .3ds format.
By nerdly_doodBLaM nerdly_projects Cop Cars Mega-Pack 3
This is a mega-pack containing several new police car mod packs, in addition to one pack that has already been available (Yellow Fire Trucks). In all, it contains a pack of Austrian police cars with the new EU-regulated paint job, a pack of police and sheriff cars based on the Broward County, FL sheriff's office, a really big pack of black and white police and sheriff cars, one Bloomingdale, CA police car mod, one smallish pack of police cars with a dark blue stripe, a small pack of military police cars, a smallish (smaller than I had hoped) pack of "Cop Cars Through the Ages", a pack of orange American fire trucks, one Allen, TX police car mod, one Italian State Police (Polizia di Stato) police car mod, and a pack of yellow fire trucks.
All police cars change your police car props to a model that's more detailed than most props and identical to the cars driving on your streets.
Each one has its own readme file.
I had planned to include an updated, more detailed version of Swamper77's Euro emergency vehicles (available on the SC4Devotion LEX) with this upload, but I decided not to include it with this pack. When I release it (as a separate upload) it will include versions with text in different languages as well as some with no text at all. If you really want the current version, PM me or post in one of my development threads and I'll send it to you or attach it to a post on one of the threads.
Installation: Pick A SINGLE dat file, put it in your SimCity plugins folder and play the game!
Help and Support:
Click here to report EVEN THE SLIGHTEST PROBLEM except to report that the lights on top seem bent, I cannot help that.
Post in the same thread, but YOU MUST SHOW A PICTURE, don't just tell me you want Thistown USA police, I need to know what it looks like, UNLESS you can describe it rather quickly, as in "It has a classic American paint job, except the back doors are black too, with red and blue lights on top and it has a seven-point star on the front doors with a blue circle inside, and arched over that is the words 'HIGHWAY PATROL'." Which, by the way, is a quick description of the California Highway Patrol cruisers.
By DolphinFoxNew version armor pack.

By DolphinFoxNew version military aircrafts F/A-6 Intruder and F/A-10 Tunderbolt. The planes are addition, as new transport means, instead of replacement original. Now, the planes can shoot by rockets and can throw bombs. Thanks FANTA1990 that he has found the file, necessary to me, of types of vehicles. Necessarily establish Lua_files.
For correct job it is necessary to put a mode of a video software as models of planes of high range.
Destroy your city to all of features with the help of these planes!!!
By Swamper77EMT EMS Ambulances
Automata models created by Swamper77
Original models made by Ripptide
This download contains a pair of EMT EMS Ambulances that I have created from Ripptide's emergency vehicle models that he sent me. There are 2 versions, one with blue lights and one without blue lights. The ambulances have a custom headlight model for nighttime driving. They also have custom models for the flashing lights.
There are two sets of vehicles, one set that replaces the default ambulance and one set of 2 additionals. The additionals are accessed through the default ambulance icon in the UDI Menu.
The game will randomly choose between the default and the additionals when you choose to do UDI with the ambulance or when it spawns them near hospitals.
There is a readme in the zip file. I suggest you read it before installing the files. The file that is in the "Global" folder must be installed or you will have multi-color patches on the sides of the ambulance(s).
I will be getting a tutorial together on how to customize the EMT EMS Ambulances to your liking soon. To see my other works in progress, click here.
By DolphinFoxNew version Ships pack.
The battle ship Southern Dakota is added.
