      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 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

  1. Shanhaiguan

    Strategically situated where the Great Wall meets the sea and on the narrow coastal route to Manchuria, it has been the site of many battles and the route of many invasions. It now lies on a double-track railroad linking Tianjin with Shenyang (Mukden). The city was known as Haiyang until 1949. Another name is Linyu.

  3. THE GREYSCALE FILE TURNED OUT WRONG, AND WILL BE REPLACED. PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON.

    Background:
    The Åland Islands, sometimes refered to as "the Aland Islands" in English due to the special Scandinavian character "å", is a group of islands half a way between Sweden and Finland. The Ålanders speaks Swedish as their mother language, and because of their special Swedish culture at Finnish territory, they got a limited homerule when The Coucil of Nations decided that the islands should be a part of Finland, early in the 20th century. Today, the Åland Islands is home for about 20.000 persons, and is mostly independent.

    Technical:
    The scale isn't accurate, but not so very unrealistic.The terrain is more smooth than in real world, and some details in the landscape are removed to better gameplay. Tested and approved by myself, and should give a perfect in-game performance and playability, as well as realism.Consists of 4x4medium tiles.

    This is mythird map upload, and I hope you like it. Please comment and rate =)

  4. G'Day Simtropians,

    Today I wish to present another map requested by Etorsen, Thanks Etorsen. Port Angeles is situated on the north coast of Washington state along the southern shore of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. I'm still sure he's got some excess baggage somewhere.

    See this map up [color=#FF0000][b][u][url="http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=9409.msg349402#msg349402"]CLOSE[/url][/u][/b][/color] and personal.

    Anyway onward and onward. This is a reall world map produced with dem and satellite data, it measures 53.248km x 45.056km. It's 16bits and in .SC4M format. It also requires Wouanagaine's mapper or terraformer to import it. And is terrain and scale accurate.


    There's some instructions and links in the readme and that's free.


    That's all I think


    Thanks and cheers

  5. NHP Patras Greece By blade2k5

    Map Details and Information

    Patras is Greece's third largest urban area and the capital of the prefecture of Achaea, located in northern Peloponnese, 215 kilometers west of Athens. The city is built at the foothills of Mount Panachaikon, overlooking the Gulf of Patras.

    The Patras metropolitan area is a conurbation of 222,460 inhabitants.  The core settlement has a history spanning four millennia. In the Roman period it had become a cosmopolitan centre of the eastern Mediterranean whilst, according to Christian tradition, it was also the place of Saint Andrew's martyrdom. Dubbed Greece's Gate to the West, Patras is a commercial hub, while its busy port is a nodal point for trade and communication with Italy and the rest of Western Europe. The city has two public universities and one Technological Institute, hosting a large student population and rendering Patras a major scientific centre with a field of excellence in technological education. The Rio-Antirio bridge connects Patras' easternmost suburb of Rio to the town of Antirrio, connecting the Peloponnese peninsula with mainland Greece. Every spring, the city hosts one of Europe's largest and most colourful carnivals; notable features of the Patras Carnival include its mammoth-sized satirical floats and extravagant balls and parades, enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of visitors in a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with relatively cool yet humid summers and rather mild winters. Patras is also famous for supporting an indigenous cultural scene active mainly in the performing arts and modern urban literature; it was European Capital of Culture 2006.

  12. Charlotte Harbor

     

    Map Location Information

    Charlotte Harbor is located in Western Florida and is in a highly populated area. This climate among this area is usually very humid and wet. Average temperatures are around 80 degrees during spring and up to 90 degrees during the summer. Even during the winter it is fairly warm.  Many of you may know where this is located if you live inside the United States.
     

    Map Features/Notables

    Charlotte Harbor is a huge bay like area. There are some small little islands in the middle of the map along with coral reefs. The bay trails off into smaller rivers making a good trade district and commercial district. This map is perfect for building cities on and will look great when finished.

     

    Special Thanks

    This map was developed by the Mapp Squad. If you are interested in join the Mapp Squad, please post in our thread in the Simtropolis Related Forum. Please expect even more maps in the near future.

     

    Feel free to post comments and rate this map. All comments are accepted.

  14. This is my first map since I'm part of RN Productions. It's sized 1537 x 1025. The map is handdrawed with photoshop and is totally based on my imagination. (ok, it's loosely based on the lake of Robertville in the Belgian Ardennes :D)  Pls comment.

  15. This is a LARGE map of the Kasei Vales region of Mars, terraformed with green trees and water.  The source file has it's water table set at 50 on the heightmap, so you must use the High Elevation Import Mods, specifically NE-1000m.dat and Import.dat.  Without these plugins the water will flood the base of the vales and you will be left with nothing but the dry, arid, forboding highlands.

    The map has been edited to reposition the "river" to it's once natural level many eons ago, and the whole area has been smoothed over, especially the lowlands, in order to facilitate city building.

    As I said, this is a HUGE map at 50x28 (3201x1793), and as such it will take a LONG time to render.  Don't worry tho, this map was made and edited on a 500mhz machine with NO graphics accelerator to speak of, so the only real requirement is alot of patience as it loads... I suggest setting it to import either right before bed or before watching a movie, that way you don't notice how long it really takes.

    The terrain in Kasei Valles is highly diverse and lends itself to both sprawling cities on the lowlands, small outposts in the highland oases, and seafaring nations spread out across the many islands dotting the Cryse Bay.

    Download, import, (wait), and enjoy!

  21. Ice Mountain - a map of fantasy, featuring an ancient volcano with lava flows. Permafrost at the top, melting to create rivers flowing away from the foothills.  To get the snow I used the snowcapped mod by Mayspacey - The map will render perfectly well without it, but you wont get the snow without the mod installed
