      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'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. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

  1. This is one of the extra files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Inside the zip are the SC3_URK.exe file, some .bmp templates, and the all important SC3URKreadme.txt.  Place the SC3_URK.exe in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps folder. The Read Me file is rather important for this tool.
    In the pics I've used the A1 Clongowes Castle for the example. Basically you load a building, extract 4 .bmp files, edit those in your favorite imaging program, and then reassemble them into a building or landmark. This looks like a very useful tool for peeps with talent. (Unlike me who just dropped in some coloring haphazardly to show that it does work.) The Read Me mentions other stuff you can do. Might be a good idea to read it.

  3. This is one of the extra files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Inside the zip is the LandmarkConverter.exe file.  Place it in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps folder. There is also a Readme_LandmarkConverter.txt file in the zip which explains how to use the tool. (Tho it's really easy so just refer to that if something goes goofy.)
    I've used @Yohane Architects's Golden Coast Apartments building as the sample in my pics.

  4. This is a four pack of extra landmarks originally for Plain SimCity 3000 only which @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Those versions will not work in SC3K Unlimited so I converted them. Place these in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps\PlugIn\ folder.

  8. This is one of the extra landmarks @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. The original file (landmarkpack3-sc3k.zip) contains an installer. I've tested that with my GoG version of the game on XP Pro. It places two files in the C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps\PlugIn\LandmarkPack3 folder. The files are LandmarkPack3.DAT and LandmarkPack3.PIN. Note: This also contains the Chrysler Building, New York, New York USA.
    Under the download button are the original zip and one I made with the two files already extracted. You only need one or the other. I'm including the second one just in case the installer doesn't work for you.

    Note: Some, but not all, of these files overlap with those already included in the SimCity 3000 Official Landmark Pack. I am providing them separately with individual screenshots to better aid selecting which ones you want.

  10. Important: These files are for the Original SimCity 3000 game.
    Note: These do not work with the Unlimited / World Edition of SimCity 3000.
    This one is a pack of files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. I've zipped these into one download file. It contains the following:
    atlantis_condo.zip bullfrog2.zip landmarkpack3-sc1.zip landmarkpack3-sc2.zip landmarkpack3-sc3.zip pantheon-sc3.zip PCGamer.zip SC3_Plug-In_1.zip shamrock.zip These files are for the Original SimCity 3000 and do not work with SC3K Unlimited / World Edition. I'm including them on the STEX in case anyone would want them. The included zips are in their original format as passed on to us here at Simtropolis. I considered installing my plain game from disc and testing them, but then wondered: why? So, here they are just for the sake of completeness.

  14. This is one of the extra real city terrains @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Inside the zip is the Twin_Cities--MN.sct file.  Place it in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Cities\Terrains folder.

    Note: For me it just comes up as all water. It's supposed to look like that second picture. If anyone has an idea how to fix this please let me know.
