  1. 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.

  2. GREATER-YOSEMITH.zip

    This is my first upload region for SimCity4, GREATER YOSEMITH. It is the land with mountains, hills and rivers. My inspiration for this SimCity4 region was came from the national parks and nature reserve. For additional information, those rivers is not really deep.
    Please download the file: 5694ceba59c45_GREATERYOSEMITH.zip
    In order to place the map: 
    1. Place the zip file in SimCity4/Regions.
    2. Unzip the file
    3. If there is a subdirectory with same name, take the subdirecory out from the directory. It should be: SimCity4/Regions/GREATER YOSEMITH/

  3. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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)

  16. 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

  18. 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!

  19. Eastern United States and Canada Representation

     

    This is my first upload (I hope I did it right). This is something I worked on for about 6 months. This is a graphical representation of the eastern half of the United States and Canada. This is not meant to be accurate by any means. 
    The way this breaks down. The way I did this is if the city has a major league team (Major League Baseball, NHL, NFL, NBA) it would be a 4x4 city (exceptions are the Bronx and Brooklyn). If the city holds a minor league baseball team it is 2x2 and/or if it has an NCAA Division one team and a population of over 50 thousand it would also be 2x2. I filled in the rest with what ever would fit. So if a 4x4 is in a location it doesn't mean it represents a major city. It just kept me from creating, importing, and loading a million 1x1 cities. 
    If you will, notice that the western tiles on this maps edge are flat and... essentially are not terraformed roughly half way into the tile. The reason behind that is that those tiles will be the "zipper" connecting the eastern map to the western map that I will start on soon.
    I have this completely rendered but can't upload it on here and the cities all have a numerical number. If you are interested in the rendered file I can e-mail it to you, if that is allowed and if anyone is interested, and enclose what city corresponds to what number.
    I have a laptop that is not really considered high end and this region performs pretty well on my computer. It doesn't take long to load a city but will take about 3 minutes to save and exit to region.
    If you have questions or if you think this is crap just post a comment. Just be gentle. Remember this is in no means meant to be accurate but a graphic representation. I am interested in transportation networks that is the reason I created this for myself. I think you will find it mildly challenging. I wanted to post this for everyone else because I have taken so much from this community and now I feel I can give back a little something.
    One suggestion, if you want to use this I would suggest turning auto equalize terrain on as the surrounding cities have been rendered. The reason I say this is because I got confused in a couple of spots and things got a little off in a couple of spots. Also, the ocean tiles I put in for the Great Lakes and surrounding the map do not match the cities I created were an after thought.
    I hope you enjoy.

    All my maps (including this one) require NE2000m.dat to work properly. Otherwise you may get the issue of large swathes of land being underwater.
    The plugin's purpose is to lower the sea level on the grayscale from 83 to around 25.
