      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we 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

  4. For your gaming pleasure. A new 2x2 medium water pump ages at half the rate and has 250% the capacity. I tried to make it somewhat realistic and has an initial cost of 3000 with a 600 simoleans/month upkeep cost.
     
    Note: Make sure to connect your water pipes to the building itself. It seems that the underground piece for the water pump doesn't move with the building.

  5. At an initial cost of 10000 simoleans and 1000 a month this puppy is a bargain. 5 times the capacity of the standard pump. Twice the life expectancy. Also has a small treatment center with half the radius of the normal treatment plant. Enjoy.

  11. Hydroelectric Dam
     
    2x16 tiles. Ends must be placed on land, middle on water.
     
    Power: 20,000MWh
    Build cost: $50,000
    Monthly cost: $3000
    Bulldoze cost: $3000
    Life Expectancy: 100 years
     
    (There are translucence and shadow problems that may cause the dam to be invisible below the water line, so it looks as if it is a "bridge". If anyone figures out a way to fix this, let me know.)

    *trees in the alley!
    *streetlight in the alley!
    *more shrubberies!
     
    *Capacity should be around 78-83 R$ residents

  20. Here's a new lot I've been working on over the past few days. It's a Mega Mall (16x16) landmark. Place it in "My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins". This file requires the "Building and Props" download from the official SimCity 4 site.
     
    Hope you all like it.
     
    Updated 7/6 11:15pm - Property name was corrected (will now be listed as "Mega Mall"). Corrected some overlapping props (phone booths, vending machine, and a sign).

  21. CASTLE THROUGH ROAD (SMALL)
     
    This is an implementation of the suggestion by apreble about a castle road lot. Thank You.
     
    Through a bit of fiddling, I manage create a wall/tower that allows a road to be constructed below. This is an ACTUAL FUNCTIONING ROAD piece. Meaning I used the road building tool to lay the road then place it in the lot itself.
     
    I will be releasing larger versions of this and a actual gate version of it later on when I am free to make them.
     
    INSTRUCTIONS
    The moment you place the lot you should realise how this works. This is a two piece lot as you will see in the picture below.
    1) Place one, rotate the lot (Home/End) and place the other.
    2) Then build you road through it.
     
    In honour of apreble lets call this the
    APREBLE GATE:

  22. I got this idea about making a castle from Emma_LB. Thank You, Emma. These three lots will basically give you the ability to build your own city walls and fortifications. Why? Well ever wished your city had that European look with castle walls across the city or nice city gates where tourists like to go.
     
    Or if Medieval European Castle Walls are not you cup of tea, then what about the GREAT WALL OF CHINA? String enough of these things up across the region and you will have your own GREAT WALL of SimCity.
     
    Take a look at the top of those walls, towers and gates to see that jagged arrow shooting defensive walls. And that little black thing if you are wondering at the roof is the stairs to down into the building
     
    There are three basic building blocks:
     
    1) WALL
    2) TOWER
    3) CITY GATE
     
    You can string them up like Lego blocks to create your own city fortifications.
     
    In honour of Emma_LB in providing me with the idea. Let's call this castle:

  23. This here is the marina residence lot. It is a place for the Richest Sims. Not just $$$ but $$$$$$$. How much does it cost? If you must ask, well you can't afford it. All apartments come with their own personal boat parking space. And the use of the helipads.
     
    This lot is able to float completely in the water. And there are three types of residence for you to pick from. The flower apartments, the glass towers and if you are really, really are rich, an individual house with your own personal hot tub.
     
    There are swimming facilities, golf, tennis, street football (soccer), lawn bowl and swings for the kids. Also for those aerobics inclined we have the new Tram-Bo the hottest thing in SimCity, Tae-Bo on Trampolines.
     
    And at night check out the party and the bonfire.
     
    Finally, don't forget to smell the pink roses as you walk along or see the nice Restaurant in the Aviary.
     
    And as always, look forward to hear from you people on what you think about this lots and any imrpovements that you think should be made. Have Fun.
     
    NOTE: I have included a READ ME for you in the zip attached for optimum placement of the structure. PLEASE Read itif not your structure may turn out funny looking.
     
    DO NOT PLACE this ReadMe txt into the Plugin folder.

  24. This is the improved version of the party in the park. The park itself has improved, take a look at the flowers lining the path. And of course what is a party without ballons? Each of the lamp posts and the 4 towers at the side and even the entrances are decked in ballons for all to enjoy. And don't forget to check out the city's highest ballon collection tied to the centre statue.
     
    The two soundbox now shot out music take a close look at the sonic ripples. And also take a look at the light show at night as the 4 towers light up the sky.
     
    There is also more food, drinks and what is a summer party without ice-cream. Of course since there are free beer, wine and champagne served we have a bit of police presence. Finally take a look at this romantic couple at the back of the concert.
