Please help us for July 06/30/2017This 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

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 GlenniHere's some sightseeing buses i made as an experiment for just how much detail i could pump into an automata model, plus i've wanted these for my city centres for a very long time.
The buses are as following.
Two MAN buses, one with a yellow paintjob, and one based on some Berlin tour buses i saw.
Two Leyland olympians, one right hand drive version, one left hand drive, it doesn't matter which you use, as these tourbuses often have left hand doors even in right hand drive countries.
And last, a n Ikarus of sorts, with the roof cut off, and made open top, based heavily on such found in Budapest, Hungary.
These buses function as taxis ingame, i know what you're thinking, why is a bsu there? Well the answer is very simple, they aren't part of the public bus network, in real life, so why should they be in SimCity 4 too? This way as taxis they will often pop around where you want them to drive, around your cities' landmarks.
Models were made by me, as were textures, modding and lights for the night mode were made by Rivit. Big kudos to him!
The lots included are just standard lots.
By SimfanatikHo Ho Ho ! , a little gift from me to you, a set of 5 new additional soft drink trucks .
I 'm not very good at writting , so i did include some pics to help the new players to set their settings
this time again i did include 2 versions , a HD ,512 X 512 High definition to run on HARDWARE
and a Low Definition one 256 X 256 to run on SOFTWARE , so this way everyone could play them.
PS . Please only play one version at the time , as always just take the .dat file that suits your need and just
put it in your pluggins folder , and your sims will enjoy cold soft drink for XMAS .
Enjoy and have fun
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.
By SimfanatikWell this is simply a pack of 7 new Isuzu light duty cabover trucks
custom model and skin by myself ( resized and modified in game maxis one)
***** THOSE TRUCKS ARE NEW INSTANCES *******
they do not replace anny vehicles
To show properly ------- You must set your in game settings on ---- HARDWARE ---
textures are 512 x 512
to install simply extract the TRUCK PACK VOL - 3 .dat into your plugins folder
and your set to go , wish you good game and have fun .
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/.
P/s Check out all Goldiva's Uploads at http://www.simtropolis.com/lots/index.cfm?mode=files&filetype=all&Str=goldiva
By EvillionsWell I decided to bring back the spaceship BATing back to the STEX since over years from the Japanense players! Since this is made for anyone to play around, don't rate bad if this wasn't like a ready made product for SC4.
-You might need to download the greeble plugin for this.
-You will need 3dsmax 2010 (I don't know if this works for other versions of 3dsmax.)
-You might need BAT4MAX for this.
max.klanky.com/ This is for the greeble plugin.
www.simtropolis.com/STEX/details.cfm For BAT4MAX by SimFox.
P.S. Look for a SC4 version of this, it might come.
By SimfanatikRemember theses ? well i fixed them now you can play them both at the same time
original .3d model by ( Glenni ) i did modified rescale and reskin
this time again i did include 2 versions , Software 256 fish texture

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.
