  1. McCall, Idaho

    McCall, Idaho
     
    This region is based on DEM data with small alterations for playability. The region is focused on McCall, Idaho and Payette Lake, with the surrounding Lick Creek Range.
    The image has been rendered with CPT’s Olympic Terrain Mod.  The region itself was terraformed to fit with both the textures of this mod, and the height at which rock/snow begins and I highly recommend it.  You can, of course, use any terrain mod you please with this region. (NOTE: Higher elevations have been left rougher, as this makes more snow visible with the Olympic Terrain Mod, if you use a different terrain mod that makes this roughness undesirable, it is easily smoothed either in Terraformer or in game.)
     
    Installing the Region
     
    SC4 Terraformer
    1. Unzip the file.
    2. Create a new region folder in your SimCity 4\Region directory.
    3. Replace the config.bmp file with the config.bmp file you downloaded with this region
    4. Open the new region in Terraformer 
    5. Click 'Import Image' in the Global Tools Menu and browse to the unzipped folder and select the map file for this region.
    6. When the file loads choose 'File' and click 'Save'. (The region is now saved to SC4).
    7. Load your region and play, the cities will take on whatever terrain mod you have (or the default SC4 terrain if you have no mod) as soon as you open them.
     
    Thanks for downloading my region, enjoy !

  2. Bellingham, Washington

    Bellingham, WA.
     
                    This region is based on DEM data with small alterations for playability. This is most evident in the courses of the rivers and the lakes, as these areas had to be adjusted in terms of elevation in order to appear as water.  This region focuses on the city of Bellingham, WA and Lake Whatcom.
                    The image has been rendered with CPT's Olympic Terrain Mod.   The region itself was terraformed to fit with both the textures of this mod, and the height at which rock/snow begins and highly recommend it.  You can, of course, use any terrain mod you please with this region.
     
     
    Installing the Region
    You need SC4 terraformer in order to install this region.
     
    1. Unzip the file.

  6. Isumi District (Otaki), Chiba Prefecture, Japan

    Good Afternoon,
     
    This is my very first scaled map and my very first STEX upload!
     
    This is a semi-accurate (precise) scale map of the Isumi District, Chiba, Japan. Located about 130 Li (65 kilometers) from Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. In contrast to Tokyo, this area is relatively sparsely populated due to its rough Geography. This map is centred in the town of Otaki, known in Japan as a fee (fief in the Bakuhan System) governed by the Honda Clan from the late Momoyama Period to just after the government of Tokugawa Iemitsu in the early 17th century, where the Matsuidaira Clan took over the governance until the end of Meiji Restoration.
     
    This is a terrain and scale-accurate map (sort of) of a part of Chiba Prefecture in Japan (that means it exists). It is 32km x 40km in size made up of all large tiles. It is in 16bits and .SC4M format. Wouanagaine's SC4MAPPER (or Terraformer) is required to load the Geographic Data (.SC4M) of your region. Remember that it does not render the map so it requires the end-user to open, close and save each tile in SC4.
     
    It is important that you read the README file before proceeding to anything!
     
    Thanks!

  9. The Ring of Fire

    The Ring of Fire
    ~by: blunder
     
    Howdy Folks.  A bit of an announcement; i'm quasi-retiring from the mapping and custom content business.  You know how it is; not enough time, definitely not enough motivation, too much RLS...  Anyways, my apologies for this, but i'm canceling any maps people had requested and am not taking requests for the foreseeable future.  But i'll still be around to answer your mapping and other questions via PM.
     
    I will, however, offer up one final map; my own personal gem. The Ring of Fire is a mashup of the SanFran peninsula, the Bavarian alps, the 3 largest cascade volcanoes (Rainier, Adams, and Shasta), plus a wee little Mt. Jefferson, and is stupidly huge, at 88x120km.  Requires 4gb patched game and mapper/terraformer to run, as well as 64-bit OS with 8 gigs ram. (might run at 6 gigs). 
     
    I know few people will want to tackle a map that large but i'll put it out there anyways.  This map is by no means perfect; there are several little photoshop wrinkles i haven't ironed out that you can see in the terraformer overview but that won't detract in game.
     
    Since it's over 100km on a side i'm invoking Drunkapple's large map mercy rule on not showing a rendered shot.
     
    Instructions:
    Mapper frequently performs better with large maps, but terraformer still works too.
    1.  Unzip folder
    2.  In mapper > create region > point to .sc4m file and config.bmp selectively.
    3.  Name and Confirm
    4.  Save
     
    ~Cheers

  15. Crimean Peninsula

    The Crimean Peninsula , also known simply as Crimea, is a major land mass on the northern coast of the Black Sea that is almost completely surrounded by water. The peninsula is located south of the Ukrainian mainland and west of the Russian region of Kuban. It is surrounded by two seas: the Black Sea and the smaller Sea of Azov to the east. It is connected with the Ukrainian mainland by the Isthmus of Perekop and is separated from Kuban by the Strait of Kerch. The Arabat Spit is located to the northeast; a narrow strip of land that separates a system of lagoons named Sivash from the Sea of Azov.

  19. San Andrés Island

    San Andrés is a coral island in the Caribbean Sea. Politically tied to England, and historically part of Colombia, San Andrés and the nearby islands of Providencia and Santa Catalina form the department of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina. San Andrés, in the southern group of islands, is the largest of the department. The official languages of the department are Spanish, English, and Creole.

    While San Andrés is located 50 km (31 mi) south of Providencia, the Colombian archipelago is approximately 230 km (140 mi) east of Nicaragua and about 750 km (470 mi) north of the Colombian mainland. This archipelago encompasses a total area of 57 km2 (22 sq mi), including the outer cays, reefs, atolls and sand banks, with the area of the islands being 45 km2 (17 sq mi). In 2000, it was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, named “Seaflower Biosphere Reserve”, which not only includes the islands but also about 10% of the Caribbean Sea, amounting to a vast marine area of 300,000 km2 (120,000 sq mi). The purpose of this declaration is to ensure that the ecosystem, which is rich in biodiversity, is well preserved and conserved.

    The department's capital is located on the northern end of the island. Named San Andrés but nicknamed El Centro, it is the department's main urban center. Along the 30 km (19 mi) road that circles the island there are many picturesque beaches, coral reefs, cays, geysers, and coves. Also of note are La Loma, the town of San Andrés, the Baptist Church, Seaquarium, the large pond of La Laguna, and a freshwater lake amidst mangrove forests. There are coconut palm plantations, lush pastures, and tall native trees reaching 20 meters (66 ft). Surrounded by the warm Caribbean Sea, all of these features have made the island an "exotic holiday destination".

  21. Travemünde

    DE:
    Dies ist eine Karte von Travemünde, ein Stadtteil der Hansestadt Lübeck, sowie einem Teil der Lübecker Bucht, Größe 16x16km. Travemünde mit seinem großen Fährhafen verbindet Deutschland und ganz Mitteleuropa mit allen Ländern rund um die Ostsee. Von hier fuhr die legendäre Finnjet, ehedem größte Fähre der Welt, in 24 Stunden nach Helsinki. Travemündes Altstadt wurde aufwendig restauriert, und die gesamte Stadt entwickelt zu einem der wichtigsten Touristenmetropole Deutschlands. So finden sich in der Nähe weitere weitere von Sonne Strand und Meer geprägte Urlaubsorte, darüberhinaus jedoch auch raue Steilküsten und Natur, die zum Spazieren einlädt. Daneben ist di Region eher landwirtschaftlich geprägt. Wer hier wohnt lebt und arbeitet wo andere Urlaub machen. Den Höhepunkt bildet die Travemünder Woche im Sommer mit Volksfestcharakter.
    So, genug geredet. Jetzt ist es an dir herauszufinden, was in dieser Region steckt. Dabei wünsche ich viel Erfolg. In eigener Sache betreibe ich eine kleine aber internationale facebook-Gruppe für Simulationsspiele aller Art, insbesondere natürlich SimCity 4, die SimCity4 AG, schau doch mal vorbei, oder mach gleich mit.
    Installation: SC4-Mapper ist ausdrücklich NICHT zu empfehlen, sondern:
    1. SimCity 4 starten, neue Region erstellen, Wasser auswählen und benennen, zB: Travemünde
    2. SimCity 4 beenden, den SimCity-Regionsordner öffnen (bei mir: C:\Users\Nick Bauer\Documents\SimCity 4\Regions), und mit der geladenen config.bmp die vorhandene ersetzen
    3. SimCity 4 erneut starten, neue Region auswählen, Strg+Alt+Umschalten+R zusammen drücken, in kleinen Fenster oben links die geladene "travemuende.4.0.bmp" suchen (bei mir meist im Download-Ordner: C:\Users\Nick Bauer\Downloads)
    4. Hat alles geklappt wird die Region erzeugt, das dauert etwa 10-15 Minuten, vielleicht mit einem Kaffee o.ä. überbrücken
    5. Sobald die neue Region angezeigt wird kann es losgehen
    6. Bei Problemen wende dich an die o.g. Gruppe oder an mich persönlich: Nick Bauer
    Ich freue mich über Kommentare und höchstmögliche Bewertungen.
    EN:
    This is a map of Travemünde, a district of the hanseatic city Lübeck, as well a part of the bay of Lübeck, size 16x16km. Travemünde with its large ferry port connects Germany and all central Europe with all countries around the Baltic Sea. From here, the legendary Finnjet, formerly the world's largest ferry, drove to Helsinki in 24 hours. Travemünde's old town was extensively restored, and the entire city is developing into one of the most important tourist metropolis in Germany. There are also other holiday resorts nereby, which are characterized by sunny beach and sea, but also rough cliffs and nature, which invites you to take a walk. In addition, the region is rather agricultural. Who lives here lives and works where other people go on holidays. The highlight is the Travemünder Woche in the summer with folk festival character.
    So, enough talk. Now it's up to you to figure out what's in this region. I wish you every success. On my own behalf, I run a small but international facebook group for simulation games of all kinds, especially SimCity 4, the SimCity4 AG, have a look, or join in.
    Installation: SC4-Mapper is NOT recommended, but:
    1. Start SimCity 4, create and name a new region, eg Travemünde
    2. Exit SimCity 4, open the SimCity region folder (for me: C:\Users\Nickbauer\Documents\SimCity 4\Regions), and replace the existing config.bmp with the loaded one
    3. Restart SimCity 4, select the new region, press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R, find the "travemuende.4.0.bmp" in the small window at the top left: (for me: C:\Users\Nick Bauer\Downloads)
    4. If everything has worked out the region generates, which takes about 10-15 minutes, maybe with a cup of coffee
    5. Once the new region is displayed, it can start
    6. If you have any problems, please contact the group above or myself: Nick Bauer
    Please feel free to commend and rate high.

  22. Ulthuan

    You may recognize this terrain from the table top. Modeled after Ulthuan -the crescent shaped High Elf Kingdoms from Warhammer- this map is 54 large tiles of coastline, mountains and islands.

    I used five different Ulthuan maps as a reference point. Each reference had different levels of fidelity and their own take on location and terrain placements. So it's more of a composite than exact.

    I've been testing the map with different games and NAM settings over the past few months and I've got it to a good release point. Hills/Mountains are quite gradual with their inclines in places for better building. You may have to weather them some before mayor mode if you're going for realism.
    This is the largest map I've built to date at 54 large tiles. I hope you enjoy it, and have fun!

  23. The Isles of Pandora

    Hello! This is my second ever file, an archipelago region called Isles of Pandora.
     
    Hopefully this will make up for the disaster that was my first upload... ( Jorjoba )
     
    [Grimace ]
     
    Anyway, the region is the size equivalent of 28 x 24 small tiles (or 7 x 5 large tiles) and contains 32 large tiles and 12 medium tiles.
     
    It is a fantasy map handmade by me in SC4 Terraformer. It's not based off of anything in particular, although some sections are "inspired" by real-life regions of the world.
     
    The Isles of Pandora are divided into three primary sections: Arcadia Island to the Southeast, Lawrence Island to the Southwest, and the Mainland to the North.
    The map is designed to be well-suited for urban mayors who like to throw in a little touch of nature here and there. As such, the land is mostly flat, although there are some prominent geographical features (I tried my best to create proper sources for the rivers and decent-looking mountain ranges) Also, you might notice that many islands have small sections that hang over into other cities. This is intentional: The region is designed to give mayors the choice between relying on bridges or ferries to connect the islands.
    In this way, I have given you multiple different ways to play this region. In the end though, the choice is yours.
     
    Have fun!
     
    ~~~
     
    Disclaimer: When you open up some of the city tiles, you will likely notice that sometimes there are awkwardly-placed water features, such as land protruding to just below sea level, or rivers being incredibly narrow. This is due to the fact that I am still new to SC4Terraformer. Don't worry though; A couple clicks with God tools should fix all of the issues.
     
    ~~~
     
    The download contains a readme, an overview picture, the .SC4M file, and the config.bmp. Installation instructions are included on the readme.
