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 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.
By ikhwanSalam! Hye!
This is the lot
So, yes, this is my GMAX 3ds model for OFFICE4
It is an office that suits the suburban or urban made by me.
You need to open it from file>open, not open t
he file right away. ( open GMAX first then the file )
Please take notice that I includes nitelite for this building but it does not show up in my sc4 game because I CANT UPDATE my SimCity4 Rush Hour to 1.1.640.0
But I think it will show up if your SimCity4 is updated to 1.1.640.
By vailoHere is a .gmax model of a globe I've been working on. I will make a plaza version for this. Soon. And a roundabout version, hopefully. However in the mean time, feel free to use it in any of your BATs... scaled down, scaled up, put upside-down, make it as a statue or put it in the corner of a building. Just post a link here in the upload if you do use it.

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 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 sim city 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 MandelSoftMRTNRLN Sign Models Mega Pack
This pack contains various sign models for gMax. There are four sets included: Dutch Set Brittish Set Imaginia Set Misc. Set Known issue: This pack contains no textures, to reduce size and avoiding someone copying my signs. However, you can apply your own textures to the models. That's where they are for.

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
