Simtropolis hardware upgrade - can you help? 06/22/2017We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our aging server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the additional load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we've been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we work out allocating resources for more optimal performance. We've also 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 something we'd like to be able to upgrade. The last time we upgraded hardware was a in 2012. 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. Your contribution means a lot! Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

By JasoncwThis download contains the CamLight rig I've used to render all of my BATs since the beginning of 2007. The render to the left was made following the instructions in the included tutorial, while the render on the right was made using the default rig and render settings.
For this tutorial you'll need 3ds Max 8 (other versions may or may not work) and BAT4Max installed, and a basic proficiency in each, though setting it up is very straightforward.
This does not work with Gmax or the standard BAT.
Please do not post troubleshooting questions in the comments section of this upload. Instead, post your troubleshooting in the 3ds Max - Troubleshooting thread, and note that you're following this tutorial.

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 JasoncwImprovements to BAT4Max have made this tutorial obsolete. Visit the BAT4Max thread in the BAT - Open Discussion forum to get the latest version of BAT4Max.
This tutorial shows how to replace the rendered images with other images, before they are converted into .FSH files. Since this tutorial might still be useful for that, I'll keep it up, but for the original purposes this [color="#FF0000"][b]tutorial is obsolete[/b][/color].
This tutorial explains how to create a .SC4Model file using different scenes for night and day.
In real life, "night" is when we are on the shadow side of the planet. There are sun rays, but they are being blocked, so we are literally in the shadow of the planet. This means that there are no sun rays casting shadows on the dark side of the planet, so there are no strong shadows, just ambient moon light. However, in the game, night is made by taking the day render, and adding a blue tint to it. The TruNite rig in this package was made by deleting the light that represents the sun, and then adjusting the light that represents ambient lighting (like the sky or moon) so that these renders are visually compatible with standard day renders.
While I made the TruNite rig included here and this tutorial, the concept of TruNite itself is SimFox's creation.
For this tutorial you'll need to have 3ds Max 8 (other versions may or may not work) and BAT4Max installed, and a basic proficiency in each.
This will not work with Gmax or the standard BAT.

Instead, post your troubleshooting questions in the [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=37&threadid=87426&enterthread=y"]3ds Max - Troubleshooting[/url] thread, and note that you're following this tutorial.
To get a better idea of how TruNite looks, download any of my BATs from December 2007 or newer and look at them at night in the game.

By DolphinFoxNew version battleship. Now battleshiphas independence of the passenger ship and icon.
Updated: Corrected models
By kd5raxthis is the second volume of my new flora pack, it contains two realistic pines. These models should be used with caution as too many in one scene can overload it. I reccomend using 20 per scene depending on your computer and what is in the scene already
By on001222I built this model from 3ds max 2009 but I used to export the gmax why I can not export it in 3ds max Export not know the steps to export.
I'm sorry my English is not a written language.

To be used for BATs for realistic car placement and rendering - example Broadwood 12
By Ceafus 88Hello guys!
I am here with a new automata project to share with you!
It is a Coca-Cola International Delivery Truck. This truck is an additional UDI and Spawn.
Since it has a trailer, and is a semi, the UDI part is very tricky. When you click the vehicle to drive it, you [b]MUST CLICK SNAP ON ROADS (SHIFT KEY) [/b]in order for the trailer to appear correctly, failing to do so will result in the trailer appearing not attached to the truck.
I have included a HD props of the cab and trailer for your own personal use in LE.
In order for this truck to appear correctly, please play on Hardware.
I hope you enjoy this little treat to help keep your sims hydrated during the summer!
[b][color=#ff0000]WARNING: [/color][/b][size=4]If you downloaded this before 6/1/12 4:54 PM CDT. Some IID's had to be changed to prevent conflict with Simfanitiks Truck Pack Vol. 4. I have solved this issue, so this version should work! All thanks to Simfanatik for pointing this out to me so I could fix it, thanks![/size]
[size=4]Thank You for your support and downloads![/size]

By goldivaTo fellow BATters: have fun playing with these new NightWindows colors! The pack includes both window standards and intense funky shades ideal for neon effects. This is a special thanks to those who share their nightlight knowhows in the BAT forum! :) Note: I toned down the zoom 4,3,2,1 brightness so you won't get the "annoying perfect brightness level for zoom 5 but too bright for small zooms" problem. Installation: Just unzip all 15 colors to gmax/gamepack/BAT/Map/Nightwondows/. Enjoy! P/s Check out all Goldiva's Uploads at http://www.simtropolis.com/lots/index.cfm?mode=files&filetype=all&Str=goldiva
By creatorhey I can upload again... anyway I made this just because I liked the other ruined building, I really dident want to go through the trouble rendering it, so...
By SimfanatikHey hey hey ! me again, finaly find the way to make new automatas, so many car crashes
sims are real bad drivers, so this is for you a set of 2 towing trucks
( custom made model made by myself ) those are new additional vehicles and you can drive them too
those towing trucks do not replace anny vehicles , and you can play both at the same time, wow !
simply extract the .dat files into your plugins folder and your set to go !
Many thanks to - Klyte45 - , he did show me how to make new automatas (instances)
so have fun ! and comment
As with all my BAT lots, the gMax model is here for you to enjoy. Check the BAT exchange for the in-game working version.
By fukudaTired of your old boieng 707 or the 767?
This is the first completely custom passenger jet of the STEX and you can choose what plane will replace in your game, just choose one of the 2 different DATs in the ZIP.
This boeing is specially dedied to Glenni (that's why it's a SAS plane ;-) ) for his help in difficult batting moments.
