      An appeal for your support: Help us keep the STEX up and running   11/06/2015

      Hi Community, this is a public appeal for help to keep the STEX up and running! We currently need your help to offset some of our operational costs and upgrades! As you know, we've always relied on community donations to help keep the website running. And while all our admins and moderators volunteer their time to managing the site and community, we do have modest expenses that we need to cover each month which includes our server hosting fees, software and support licenses, etc. So lately, we've experienced a slump with donations and we're beginning to feel the pinch! We would really appreciate your support by way of a donation of any amount in order to keep the site up and running. Of course, as always, we'll send you a gift with a minimum donation as a Thank You. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me!  Sincerely; Dirktator & The Admins PS. Thank you to those who have stepped up and donated the last couple weeks -- we really appreciate it!

  1. Scotland

    Getting carried away now, here's the whole of Scotland for you. Again, I have put large cities across the Highlands with medium cities for the Central Belt. This map was rendered with the Snow-Capped/Arctic Terrain Mod by Teirusu (http://www.simtropolis.com/modding/index.cfm?mode=details&show=320) so the snow-capped mountains may not appear in your region unless you have this mod installed.
    I'm away for a wee dram now.

  6. Humboldt Map

    Map Details and Information

    This map has been uploaded at the request of members TPB and SimEMS38, and at the encouragement of Huston. I needed to come up with a name so I'm calling this "Humboldt". I realize it won't appeal to everyone but if someone else wants to check it out, then by all means.

    This Map was created by piecing together various parts of 26 different real world maps. The resulting land area has been reconciled extensively; some of the river beds and sea floors however would need more work for someone wanting to use a transparent water mod. The two built-in port areas (taken from the Rotterdam and Kaohsiung maps) have been correctly oriented both orthogonally and diagonally. The inner harbor area is meant to be a starting template which can be easily modified as you see fit. The map was rendered using a modified version of Gobias' Sudden Valley terrain mod, Gobias' Chicago River water mod and a modified version of Tierusu's Grass beach mod.


    Map Specifics

    Map Type: Compilation of portions from various real world maps

    Region map size: Map is configured for 272 large city tiles and is 17x16 in size.
       
    Zip Contents: In-game region image (jpg); region overview (jpg); SC4M file; config file (bmp); readme text file; a 16bit PNG file (for those that might want it).
     
    Dependencies
     
    Either SC4 Mapper or SC4 Terraformer for importing


    Credits

    I can't and don't take any credit for this map. All I've done is take from the great work of others, do some edge reconciliation and a relatively slight amount of hand terraforming. The following is a list of all the maps and tools used to compile the map:

    Installing the Map   

    To install SC4M map file:
    1. If you don't already have SC4Mapper, download it here and follow the install instructions.
    2. Unzip this file.
    3. Run SC4Mapper, click on 'create region'
    4. Choose SC4M
    5. Browse to the unzipped folder and point the map file .SC4M
    6. Click on 'Save Region' and name it, and Quit SC4Mapper
    7. Run SC4 and load the new region. The colors of the region in SC4 will be the same colors as SC4Mapper until you enter and save each city tile. But you have the choice to do it as you go and not right away.

    SC4Terraformer
    1. Create a new region folder in your Plugins\Region
    2. Copy my config.bmp into the folder and overwrite the old one. (make changes to config.bmp file now if you want)
    3. Open the new region you just created with SC4 Terraformer
    4. Click on Import Image in the Global Tools Menu and browse for my SC4M file.
    5. When file is imported click File - Save (the region is now saved to SC4
    6. The colors of the region in SC4 will be the same colors as SC4TF until you enter and save each city tile. But you have the choice to do it as you go and not right away.
    Start opening tiles!

  7. DEMO Region - Isle 001

    Hello people! My name is Seb and today I am sharing with you a Region I just began to create. The name is a little bit odd... It might change as the region isn't complete yet. So the idea of the map I am building is to make it a large island with many medium/large sized islands on the other sides. Also, the coasts are very high and the most flat part is at the top of those cliffes. So now, let take a look at the work wich has been done yet.

    Hi! Here is a map of the Philippines, specially dedicated to my Pinoy friends out there. Enjoy! :)
     
    EDIT: Updated to version 1.1. Refer to the changelog for details.
     
    Disclaimer: the snowcapped mountains displayed inside the main screenshot is a result of my personal snow mod. You can choose to adjust the height of your own snow mod or not install any snow mod. In other words, the snow that you see inside the screenshot is actually due to my own personal preference, and is none of your business  :P

  16. Schleswig

    DE: Dies ist die Region rund um die Stadt Schleswig. Gelegen and der Schlei, 25.000 Einwohner, regional etwa 110.000. Eine Region mit Geschichte. Das nördlichste Bundesland von Deutschland, dennoch leben hier Dänen und Deutsche zusammen. Wie man sieht ist das Land flach, Die Schlei ist schiffbar bis zur Ostsee, jedoch keine Konkurrenz zu Kiel, Lübeck, Gedser oder Kopenhagen, heute nicht mehr. In dieser Region finden sich aber viele Spuren der legenderen Wikinger.
    Da Simcity 5 ja ein Totalausfall ist, habe ich diese neue Region für Simcity 4 gebastelt. Nicht New York, nicht Tokio und nicht Rio, sondern eine Region in Norddeutschland.
    Werbung: komm auf meine Seite, und wir spielen zusammen, https://www.facebook.com/groups/447720148583197/
    Und jetzt viel Spass mit SimCity4 und Schleswig.
     
    GB: This is the region around the town of Schleswig. Located and the Schlei, 25,000 inhabitants, some 110,000 regionally. A region with a rich history. The northernmost state of Germany, still live here Danes and German together. As you can see the land is flat, the Schlei is navigable to the Baltic Sea, but no competition to the harbours of Kiel, Lübeck, Gedser or Copenhagen, no longer. In this region, however, will find many traces of the place whose Vikings.
    Since Simcity 5 is indeed a total failure, I made this new region for Simcity 4. Not New York, not Tokyo and not Rio, but a region in northern Germany.
    Advertising: Come over to my side, and we play together, https://www.facebook.com/groups/447720148583197/
    And now a lot of fun with SimCity4 and Schleswig.
     
    DK: Dette er den region omkring byen Slesvig. Placeret og Slien, 25.000 indbyggere, nogle 110.000 regionalt. En region med en rig historie. Den nordligste stat Tyskland, stadig bor her danskere og tysk sammen. Som du kan se jorden er flad, Slien er sejlbar til Østersøen, men ingen konkurrence til Kiel, Lübeck, Gedser eller København, ikke længere. I denne region, men vil finde mange spor af det sted, hvis vikingerne.
    Da Simcity 5 er faktisk en total fiasko, jeg lavede denne nye region for Simcity 4. Ikke New York, ikke Tokyo og ikke Rio, men en region i det nordlige Tyskland.
    Reklame: Kom over til min side, og vi spiller sammen, https://www.facebook.com/groups/447720148583197/
    Og nu er en masse sjov med SimCity4 og Slesvig.

  20. Bel-Air Metropolitan Area

    Welcome to Bel-Air metropolitan area.
    It's my first map, my first contribution to this amazing world of Simcity. 
    Even if the name Bel-Air is inspired by one of Chevrolet most beautiful car the '56 Bel Air, this region map is based (it's not an accurate recreation) on my hometown - Constanta city, capital of Dobrudgea Region, Romania.
     
    The map consists of 54 large cities (6x9) and it was entirely build by hand tile by tile.
     
    It has some seaports, some marinas, some river and lake ports. Also it has two rivers (the Danube - Black Sea Cannal), some small islands and smooth beaches.
     
    Hope you enjoy it and any constructive criticism is more than welcome!

  21. Zephyr River Basin

    This is my first SimCity 4 map I've ever uploaded.
    The Zephyr River Basin is an original idea of mine while i was bored at school. It has many river converging between two mountain ranges, providing a very water-based city to develop.
    It is 7x7 medium tiles.
    Sudden Valley Terrain mod and MayorBean's OceanRiverMOD were used in the screenshot.

  23. 4 Euro Cities

    The map is a combination of four european cities - Zurich, Köln, Frankfurt and Budapest. Due to the combination of mountains, rivers and lakes I have tweaked and modified most geografical elements as needed.
    This is not supposed to be an accurate map, but a fantasy map animated by the cities mentioned above.
    Size is 1025x769 and Config.bmp is attached in the zip-file.

  24. Falklands

    The tiny island off of the coast of South America under British Sovereignty, my second map release and my first real world location release!
     
    the map contains 6 x 6 Large cities (36 cities).
     
    Once the file is downloaded, extract the contents to your regions directory, as in place the folder "Falklands" into your Region folder. 
     
    Then start up the game load up Falklands and then press " Control + Alt + Shift + R" then once the screen has popped up, navigate to the Falklands.jpeg file in the regions --> Falklands folder and then go make yourself a drink! Obviously the more RAM etc your computer has, the quicker the map shall render.

    I did have it cover all the way to Queens, but the region just crashed as soon as it loaded so I reduced it in size.
    Its 'only' 120km ish long haha. Enjoy.
