      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!

  2. The Sparkle Kingdom

    This region contains one island, about 416 square kilometers. It was created for my city journal which i'll post a thread about later. It is my first map so constructive criticism is welcome as i'm terrible at terraforming. (Especially mountains) It is also perfect for building a major metropolitan area, building an agricultural nation, or just simply making the equivalent of Hong Kong and maxing out population. (You would have to get rid of the mountains and rivers first)
     
    This map has no dependencies, it looks like it is your lucky day.

  3. O-Mega Map

    I made this map because I could find no map large enough to fulfill my territorial needs. The map was 8000x5000 but i could not make a config for it so i downsized to4097x2561. This map has flat plains, valleys, mountains (a lot of mountains), peninsulas, islands, oceans, bays, rivers, lakes, gulfs, and much much more...

    Enjoy!!!

  4. Ciudad del Lago, fictional

    Ciudad del Lago
    (matias93's first attepmt in creating content for SC4 community)
    How to install
    This map is in .sc4m format, so you need SC4Mapper or SC4Terraformer to install it (I recommend both). Both programs could be found in the LEX or STEX.
    With Mapper:
    1. Having it, you have to go to your Regions folder (usually, in Documents/Simcity 4/Regions) and create a subfolder with the desired name.
    2. Open the Mapper and click on 'Create Region', choose 'SC4M' as source and check the map is correctly loaded. You can change the city tiles distribution with 'Edit config.bmp' if you want, or leave as it is.
    3. When ready, click 'Save Region', choose a name and close the Mapper.
    4. Open the game and change to the new region. The colours will be the ones you have in the Mapper, and will change to match your water and terrain mods while you save your city tiles.
    -----
    What is this region?
    Ciudad del Lago is a fictional location that I've terraformed along years of playing with Maxis' Berlin and London regions (yes, that stream on the west is what's left of the Spree). After adding more than 100% of new area, I decided to try and see what you can do with this place.
    The terraforming, of course, does not mimic a purely natural terrain, but includes several modifications, that allow a faster settlement of infraestructure, like sea and airports, leveled city centres and some adequately sloped lanes for motorways. There's also a lot of natural barriers, which would add some fun (and the need of several tunnels and brigdes).
    In the most terraformed areas, I opted for keeping the terrain exactly 30 meters over sea level, allowing to draw brigdes that permit the pass of ferries. Using those platforms (or newer analogous), you can extend ferry lines up to the extremes of all causeways, complementing your network infraestructure.
    The whole map extends over a 24 kilometers side square.
     
    This files are a free contribution, that can be redistributed in its original form or remixed, by mentioning the authors name. The original creator of some pieces is Maxis, and I remixed it and added most of the map.

  5. Poole, Eng

    Poole, England
    a map by: blunder

    Requested by: DocRorlach
    -------------
    Installation:
    This map is in .sc4m format and requires either Terraformer or Mapper to import.

    1. Navigate to your Documents/Simcity 4/Regions folder and create a new folder with your desired region name
    2. Copy+paste the config.bmp file into the folder you just created.
    3. Open SC4TF, open the new region, import the .sc4m file, save and quit.
    4. You must open and save each tile for it to display your terrain mod instead of the terraformer/mapper elevation color overlay.

    -------------
    Description:

    Poole is a coastal city on the southern coast of england.

    This map is 24km x 24km and made from satellite data. The map is not quite true to reality; the river on the west side has been largely exaggerated.
    Map made using satellite data, image editing software, and drunkapple's invaluable advice.

    (I HIGHLY recommend using Lowkee's most excellent Appalachian Terrain Mod and shokthrpy's Brigantine 2.0 HD water and HD rock mods)

    For questions, comments, and requests please see my Map Thread over at simpeg.com

    Happy Gaming!

  10. 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.

  14. 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.

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.

  16. 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.

  20. Floris County (64x64, 4288 Square Kilometers)

    As says in the Title, it's 64x64, or 4288 Real life Square Kilometers, to give an idea of how big that is, the size of Timbuktu and when you automatically create a new Region is 16x16, or 268 Square Kilometers.
    How to use/download the Region:
    1. Download the config.bmp and Floris.jpg files.
    2.  After you've downloaded the config.bmp and Floris.jpg files, you wan't to start a new automatic region.
    3. Then you wan't to hold down [shift] + [alt] + [ctrl] + r, and double-click on the Floris.jpg file, and Wallah!
    WARNING: May take up to 8 Minutes to download the Region (ingame)
    Also, be sure you create a new folder in your "SimCity 4 Regions" Folder, with both the jpg and bmp files in it, so that way it doesn't flood your "Downloads" Folder, and that's about it, enjoy!
    (Floris Valley town, not included)

  22. sc4m Ise, Mie Prefecture, Japan

    Good Day,

    This is my third scaled map.

    This is a precise scale map of the cities of Ise, Shima and surrounding environs in Mie Prefecture (Japan). 

    This is a terrain and scale-precise map of a part of Mie Prefecture in Japan (that means it exists). It is 32km x 32km in size made up of all large tiles. It is in both 16bit .png and .SC4M formats. This is a semi-accurate (precise) scale map of the cities of Ise, Shima, the Ise-Shima National Park and surrounding environs, Mie Prefecture in Japan. Located on the southwest corner of Ise Bay, this area also covers one of Japan’s most sacred shrines, the Ise-jingu. This project was finished for a friend who happens to live in the city of Ise. 
    This map is finished using the latest imagery from NASA, contour data from the university, and SC4 Terraformer to smooth out some holes in the raster data.

    It is important that you read the READ ME file before proceeding to anything!

    Thanks!
    -Tonraq

  23. Republic City

    Welcome to Republic City! Founded by Fire Lord Zuko and Avatar Aang approximately 116 years ASC, Republic City is both the capital and the largest city in the United Republic of Nations, and is host to numerous Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation citizens, as well as a sizable population of Water Tribe members. In addition to the main city, the region includes Republic City Bay, host to Air Temple Island—the home of the world’s last four Airbenders: former Avatar Aang’s son, Tenzin and Tenzin’s 3 children Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo—as well as the current Avatar, Korra.

    The region measures about 16 by 20 km.

    This is a map of the fictional Republic City, Capital of the United Republic of Nations, per the wonderful minds of Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino of Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra fame, drawing inspiration from steampunk and 1920s/30s Shanghai/New York/Boston. As such, the design of this region is owned by Nickelodeon, but this adaptation should fall under the Creative Commons/Fair Use license, as it is completely for fun (not for profit). You can probably use it in your city journals (I don't care), provided you cite Nickelodeon as the map source (and preferably its SimCity 4 version creator, me).
    It took a lot of time to make this map, since I basically painted in grey-scale over the actual map of the city. Constructive Criticism is welcome and encouraged, as this is my first upload to the STEX.
    You will need SC4Mapper or SC4Terraformer to use this map. Included in the folder are .SC4M and .PNG files, as well as a readme.
    The map's highest point is about 3000 meters high (2750m above sea level). Please make sure your game map can go this high. Otherwise, smooth it out in SC4Terraformer or in paint/photoshop to lower than 140/255 grey (about the value of the highest point).
    The terrain mod shown is CPT's Meadowshire Terrain Mod. You can find it on the LEX.

    Enjoy!

    P.S. I have absolutely no idea if this is to scale or not. All I had was the stunning aerial illustration, stylized map, and a few detail shots to go from. Also, the map is really just the actual pictured map converted, which is why the left/northmost mountain is included in the region, but not the one on the right/southernmost. I am interested in seeing what people do with it though.
