  1. Includes: 1 greyscale .jpeg image.
    Region created to match the location Commonlands in the game Everquest2. If you're not familiar with it, the map includes rivers stretching throughout the region, mountains surrounding  the island, and one small bay.
    If you are familiar, hopefully you find it to you're liking. One part I couldn't manage to recreate is the dock area, as the rivers and ocean are the same level, so I couldn't have that cliff leading to the beach. Also Im aware my mountains came out a bit plateau-like. If I make a new version of this map I will fix it.

  2. This is my first custom map, so I'll admit it's not perfect. What you get is a single grayscale image for SC4Mapper.

    Hallo Leute!
    Das Waldheimer-Tal (englische Version: Forest Valley) ist ein Tal der fiktiven Sorte, welches ich mit viel Präzision erstellt habe. Normalerweise sind die meisten Regionen groß, doch man kann ja auch mal ein bisschen Abwechslung gebrauchen!

  9. The Sparkle Kingdom is back! New and improved, with more realistic and lifelike terrain than ever. There are now 17 islands in total in this 36 city tile area, 10 major islands and 7 minor islands.... so there is a lot of islands to make as many beach resorts you want, but be wary! There are five volcanoes on the island chain, three of which are very active, and two which are dormant, so choose your building spots carefully. One wrong move, and your entire city could be burning in lava and buried in ash... Hope you have fun with this, and one more thing regarding the city journal.
     
    Updates will resume weekly schedule on Saturday, November 12, 2016.

    I have spent the last week trying to add rivers but end up raising the land level after every render, see the last screen shot. I have tried a few different things with no success, if anyone out there has an idea, please let me know.

  16. Hello, seeing no region of Cuba, I decided to create one (my wife is Cuban), unfortunately, there are no mountains because I can not do them properly.
    PS: if someone wants to create and reshare, no problem, but then I just want to be notified in order to have my region even more realistic with the mountain I can not do ... The map is huge for such a small island.

  17. Hi everybody,
    I created this map two years ago to start a new region, I'm still working on my cities because this map simply gives a lot of space and (to me) is still interesting to build on. Two years after making this I still haven't changed a lot since putting it into use.... Making this map alone took quite some time...So I thought If I like it (and I'm very picky about maps -that's why I originally started this project) maybe some people would like to try this also.
    So this is my map of Cape York or Blue Summit (still can't decide which name is better... what do you think?). It's 11x13 huge tiles. That's 44kmx52km = 2.288 km²!
    It's loosely inspired by the region of Eureka, CA and Astoria, OR mixed together with the mountains of Olympic National Park, WA. Maybe I even used original map data and somehow meshed it together with paint, I can't even remember. Expect a very complex river delta made from three rivers confluencing in this region, very extensive riparian and zones and marsh inland, lots of plain space to build on. Many possibles sites for a harbour of biggest dimensions, marinas, "Manhattan-like" island downtowns, suburbs all the way up to the horizon, international airports, it all fits on this map.
    I'm using the CPT_OlympicTerrainMod http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1637 ( with Columbus Terrain Mod as dependency...?) I recommend very much the CPT_No7a_OlympicCoast_TreeController  http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1638 if you plan to set it in the Pacific Northwest.
    I also like RVT Coastal Mod - by rivit http://workingman-productions.co.uk/downloads/rivit_coastal.html. The grey Beach fits quite well to the Pacific northwest I suppose. Rivit's Coastal Mod has some nice choices for water, as well. Until now I couldn't decide though which is the perfect water for it, would love to hear some recommendations. I also use the excellent:
    It comes as greyscale-png and .sc4m file, so you can alter it beforehand. I've to admit there's some blind spots in the most eastern border, but I literally lost all creativity shortly before reaching the finish line But it's a really small area, you won't settle there a long time.
    Maybe I can post a rendered screen if there's demand...
    Have fun with this one

  19. The Previews above from left to right show, 1) Atlantis as SC4 Mapper displays it in Region view, 2) The config.sys file as it was enlarged and used as the shape of the island, 3) The grayscale map made from the config.sys file with a hill and 2 inland lakes added, 4) A map of the Region as seen in SC4 Mapper, 5) A partially re-textured region as cities were loaded and saved from the SC4 Mapper Region view, 6) The default texture generated by SC4 when the grayscale is manually loaded using CNTRL+SHIFT+ALT+R, and, 7) A satellite view of a partially developed region with texture mods added.
    Atlantis is a fictional island world from Ancient Greek mythology, initially popularized by the philosopher Plato who composed modern ethics and ideals into his revised stories of Atlantis.  It is said that Atlantis may have existed somewhere in the center of the Atlantic ocean, representing transition between major eras of civilization. 
    With this region map you can interpret history, culture and civilization any way you want and build on mostly flat land with lots of access to water.  I've provided only a basic preview showing a central modern transportation system.
    This download includes both an .SC4M file, and an 8-bit .bmp, 256 grayscale indexed heightmap, config.bmp and region.ini files. The grayscale map can either be manually installed or imported into SC4 Mapper or SC4 Terraformer to generate an .SC4M file that you may prefer to work with.  The above preview images and basic instructions for manual installation also included.

  22. Fluffy Island is the third major island of the Sparkle Kingdom,  located south of Stripe Island and 20 Miles Southeast of the Mainland. It has helped provide the country's electronic systems. It is basically the equivalent of Silicon Valley in the US.  The largest city on the Island is New Schulmania, and it is also the capital of the state. It is the leading major provider of electronics and the city with the most cat owners per capita. (Yes, that's a reference to Schulmania by @Schulmanator.) It is also the location of the national NVIDIA headquarters, national Microsoft Headquarters, and the famous ITS Office Park.

  23. This map began with a modelled picture of a dove, and was processed into an 8-bit 256 indexed grayscale. It was discovered that although a grayscale heightmap could be 8-bit and 256 shades of gray, it must also be 'indexed' specifically as a grayscale image otherwise SC4 will simply render a flat region.  Thanks to CorinaMarie for investigating the format and rendering the image into the initial dove-shaped island landscape.  From there, I developed the Dovetail Region theme with a city layout.
    Included in the zipfile are the preview images and install intructions, the Dovetail Region heightmap, config.bmp, and region.ini file.

  24. I met @LonestarYankee88 in the chat room last night and received a request for a 10 x 10 large tiles map with lots of hills and places to build bridges. So, using the new technique I discovered in my antique Photoshop Elements program I present this file.
    The included Config.bmp is 40 x 40 pixels and all blue which gives 100 large tiles total. The grayscale is, ofc, 2561 x 2561 pixels. Render time on my old 2.8ghz comp with 2gb of Ram was 26 minutes and 6 seconds. Peeps with faster comps can prolly render it quicker. One thing to note: Since all tiles are the same size you will not see any progress or change on your screen whilst rendering. Go have lunch and check it later.
     The file from which to render the region is: Cori 10x10 Lg Gray.bmp. There is no Read Me file since this is like any other grayscale map that you render in game. See How to Install a Map From the STEX.

  25. Helloooooooo!
    This wouldn't have been possible without inspiration from CorinaMarie, a fantastic simtrop member. Her way of using cloud grayscales was how i made this.
    File includes:
    Config.bmp
    Greyscale
    Sc4mapper file
    readme on terms of use, and how to put this in simcity 4 (not just pasting it into folder, theres a process!)
    History:
    Krampa DeSimmia is a micronation that archaeologists found to be the site of multiple meteorite, meteor, asteroid, etc. attacks. It is high up in cliffs and is very eroded. mayor (your name if you downloaded this) has taken it upon himself to develop it, Can he do it?!
    Thing not mentioned in readme: lowkee addons were the cliff addons, transparent water, snow and increases elevation, danke!!!
