      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

      Chat is back...   06/22/2017

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

  3. Buffalo, New York. Based on USGS data. I worked TWO HOURS on this map because my MICRODEM program wouldn't correctly indicate the water in this region. Cities are strategically placed to allow accurate placement of the cities of Buffalo, St. Catherines, and smaller neighboring cities such as Depew and Lancaster. Please give it a good rating.

  4. 32 x 27km. Extention of previous Mediterranean region. Full map of Europe excluding Iceland. Uses Gall projection hence the reason it appears 'stretched' the further North you go. Coastline accurate, hills made up but in the right places. Total 166 City's. NOTE: when the region is built the UK is not as mountainous as appears in the screenshot.

  6. World Map from Final Fantasy 7, 2049x1473 so it's big. This is my first map upload, and you can find enlarged pics in the CJ Thread, http://www.simtropolis.com/idealbb/view.asp?topicID=52953&pageNo=1&num= , but the thread is DEAD, so please don't resurect it.
    Update: (8.5.04) New In-Game shot now that I've finally finished rendering the region. Also, those of you familiar with the game will notice that I've placed the foundation of Midgar... I found that the terrain separates the sections better than anything... THAT FOUNDATION IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE MAP! Thanks again for the support!
    Update: (2.27.05) Wow, this map continues to do well.  I've updated the Config.bmp to remove as many of the little cities as possible, which should help on the initial loading.  I've stopped playing SC4, so there's never going to be a CJ on this unless another expansion comes out, but I'm glad that over 800 people have downloaded my work.  Those of you who haven't yet downloaded it, please rate it if you like it!  Thanks! 
    Update: (10.5.05)  I'm happy and pleased that the map has gotten over 2249 downloads as of today!  I never imagined it would do this well, but I guess the extra time spent paid off.  Thanks to everyone, and enjoy! :-)

  13. I made this cover as large of an area as I could without going to a higher altitude than I could accurately represent. It is huge, current size of 21x23 large cities. If you don't want your region that big, simply crop the area out of this map you want to use. If you would rather play medium sized cities for performance reasons, simply color the attached config.bmp file green instead of the supplied blue. It includes an area stretching from NW corner of Thousand Oaks to NE corner of Rancho Cucamonga. SW includes all of Catalina island and SE corner stretches over to San Clemente, which is just NorthWest of Camp Pendelton. It basically covers the populated area of LA county and most of Orange County.

  14. Rio is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I hope you enjoy this map. Cariocas: I would love to hear your comments. Please smoothe the beaches. I tried to be as precise as possible. I worked the grayscale on the satellite photo.

  15. This is a map made from USGS data of a random Florida beach, which I then cut and pasted a little bit to make it slightly more interesting. It's very flat, but the straight beach should be easy to cover with beaches for a nice beach resort town.

  16. The .JPG i created and is supplied on the site is just the basis! I've substantially altered and refined my region of Amsterdam in SC4. Download the final result here : http://piazza.iae.nl/users/martijng/Dit%20is%20de%20homepage%20van_files/Amsterdam%201.0.rar (16 Mb) See a big screenshot here: http://members.ams.chello.nl/~a.touw2/sc4_ams_shot1.jpg 3 Days work, but the result is great imho. Have fun with it!

  20. This is that same as Gauntlet Island only bigger, much bigger. It has 25 large cities and 156 medium sized maps. This region works very well for Rush Hour. It has lots of places for bridges and tunnels. You must download the config file for this to work.

  21. This is the island of Oahu - TO SCALE AND EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE!!!! The island is 64x48km in reality... and it is the EXACT same size in this rendition. If you didn't know, one large square is 4kmx4km. There are 192 large squares in this region. In other words it is 64x48km (16x12 squares). It takes about 45 minutes for it to load. But it's worth it since it is an accurate (to scale!!!!) version of what the best island of Hawaii looks like. Please have patience when loading. If, when it is created you see blue and purple lines - they go away when you start building in those cities. One more thing, the thumbnail is from my original version of Oahu, Hawaii. BUT Trust me this island is worth downloading!!! It is truly SPECTACULAR!! A perfect region.

  22. Finally, a map of the Tokyo area.  Here are the descriptions:

    includes: Tokyo & Yokohama size: 1025x1025 NO elevation---just a flat piece of land config file was made to the way I felt was most suitable -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IGNORE
    [NOTICE]

    Apparently, there seems to be a problem with the .jpg file and cannot be loaded.  The file that I originally had is a .bmp and I didn't realise that anything uploaded to Simtropolis had to be .jpg.  So I just opened it up with paint and saved it as .jpg.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I'll try to fix the problem as soon as possible and if anyone knows how to "correctly convert" a .bmp map file to .jpg, please tell me.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The problem is (hopefully) fixed!  I must thank ChicAgo333 because I read from one of his posts that solved my problem.  I have also included a screenshot as many have requested.

  24. Yet another slice of Italy. Naples bay area offers a wide range of terrains, including volcanoes (first of all the Vesuvius). The coast line changes from beaches to cliffs, and there are mountains that seems literally smashed by quakes.Capri, located at the end of Sorrento's peninsula is the most famous islandin the gulf, a destination for the international jet-set.
    The mountains elevation is not realistic to leave in evidence the ancient extinct craters. The Volturno river path and size are made by fantasy to have something useful for the game. In reality it's a little river not navigable.
    People are worried by the risk of a new Vesuvius eruption in the future, so with this map you can experiment disasters and build your own new Pompei.

    Render the JPG using SC4 Terraformer with a scale factor of 1000m
    Thanks for your interest in my maps and goodbye!!
