  3. G'Day Simtropians,
     
    Thanks for not forgetting me, so I thought what about a little celebratory map! This I made about 4 years ago and decided at the time not to release it as CP also has a map on the lex of the Grand Canyon. Tonight I thought what the heck for those who do not frequent sc4d, here she is.
     
    The Grand Canyon is situated in Arizona and is about 17 million years old, although the Colorado River has carved out about 2 billion years of geological history of our beautiful Earth in that time. A mighty effort all round I should think.
     
    Of course this is an accurate scale map prepared with dem data. It's in sc4m format so one will need wouanagaine's mapper or terraformer, links and further instructions are in the zip.
     
     
     
    That's all folks
    Cheers

  7. The Isle Of Eugene are a fictional set of European islands situated somewhere in the south. Wild and uninhabited, they are here to build what you wish on them. 
     
    The map is made entirely out of small squares.
     
    Well this has been a lifelong ambition for ten years, and now I've finally achieved it.
     
    Enjoy.

  8. Anyone seen those maps people have made with grayscale images they made in photoshop or downloaded off the internet thinking they were cool?  You ever noticed how you would have to go over the entire map to smooth out all the edges because they didn't even bother to try and play the map?  You hate it when you load a map up and the land and water are at exactly the water level so that you have vast amounts of water you can see through and a ton of land you can't build on?  Or how about those maps that have completely flat ground in the open spaces?  I hate all these things too.
     
    So I bring you another map that was made specifically for playing.
     
    I made this map by hand in SC4Terraformer.  I have noticed a great deal of maps uploaded just aren't playable, sure they look pretty but they just aren't playable.  Not enough attention was paid to them, too sad really.  THIS map was made with playing in mind, never mind it looking realistic or being a place we can relate to.  This map is made to be played.  You can dig no less than 15 meters with hole digging lots all over the map, anywhere, it has mountains, hills, plains, rivers, lakes, and a coast line with a bay and a few islands here and there.  The waters are just shallow enough to build coastal development kit custom content but also deep enough to allow boat passage anywhere and everywhere.  There is a mixture of steep and beach coastline and the beaches are not so long that you can't build anything on them.  The flat ground, the plains, is not really flat anywhere, I made sure to erode the terrain enough so that the ground is not completely flat, it is flat enough that building a railroad with a slope mod installed might not even alter the terrain(in places) but if you build farms over fast amounts of  flat land you will notice the land actually rolls.  I even included some smaller city tiles surrounding a large tile so that you can naturally, with an unmodded game, unlock rewards that are centered around building neighbor connections to many maps.  So this map is great for vanilla games and heavily modded games.
     
    Instructions for installation:
     
    1. Download
    2. Unpack the .zip
    3. Open SC4 Mapper 2013 http://www.simtropolis.com/news/_/general-gaming-news/sc4mapper-2013-version-r314
    4. Click "Create Region"
    5. When prompted, select .SC4M
    6. Browse to the location of the unpacked .zip you created in step 2
    7. Open it
    8. Click save.
     
    I hope you all enjoy this map.  Thanks for downloading.

  9. A map of the edge of Egypt and Saudi Arabia with the top of the Red Sea and including the Gulf of Suez.
     
    NOTE: probably a map that will look more aesthetically appealing if you use a desert textures etc. 
     
    the map contains 6 x 6 Large cities (36 cities).
     
    Once the file is downloaded, extract the contents to your regions directory, as in place the folder "Red Sea" into your Region folder. 
     
    Then start up the game load up Red Sea and then press " Control + Alt + Shift + R" then once the screen has popped up, navigate to the Red Sea.jpeg file in the regions --> Red Sea folder and then go make yourself a drink! Obviously the more RAM etc your computer has, the quicker the map shall render.

  19. This is a random region I created. It is based on river delta of two large rivers with a canal. I made it extremly flat to build large, dense cities on. Use SC4 Mapper or Terraformer to put it into the game, config.bmp is included, but you may rearrange the config ...

  20. This is a map of a region created by glaciers and volcanos and it is probably not realistic to create large areas with dense population. You need SC4 Mapper or Terraformer to open the SC4M-File (config.bmp is included). The map looks better with a terrain mod for snow capped mountains.

  21. This is my first upload on the STEX ever, so if there are some reqeusts, what I could do better next time feel free to tell me ...
    On this map you can use snow themed buildings etc. on a map that has no arctic terrain mod.
    I also included the silhouette of a river. If you have the Extra Terrain Tools 2 installed (Rain Tool), you can use it to simulate melting snow.
     
    Dependencies:
    SC4 Mapper / Terraformer to open the SC4M-File (config.bmp is included) A terrain mod for snow capped mountains (otherwise this map looks really boring)

  22. For all land lubbers I present Goshwhataplace. A slightly modified region created by the Lanscape Designer (by Greyveil). 93 city tiles of all sizes should occupy region builders for a few months.
     
    This is a game renderable map, and as such you should proceed as follows:
    After expanding this .zip file move the contents to a new sub-folder in your Regions folder then start the game.
     
    Navigate to your new region. The game displays the layout from the config.bmp.
     
    Press CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+r to start the renderer. The renderer displays a file dialogue box.
     
    Navigate to the Goshwhataplace.jpg file and select it by clicking on the icon on the left. This loads the file name into the selection box.
     
    Press enter. The render starts. THIS CANNOT BE INTERRUPTED, so go for coffee or grab lunch or something. It will take about 45 minutes on an average modern machine. Keep loose nut away from the keyboard and mouse.
     
    When the render finishes you will see the final terrain. Terraform if desired. You may want to add some rivers and streams as you pick up cities, and will certainly want to add flora.
     
    Have fun.

    Update:
    Ver 2.0 is out. Total redesign of the config.bmp file has been done in Ver 2.0.
     
    Hello Mayors :)
    So this is my 1st upload... A region map of a fictitious region called Diamond Valley.
     
    1st of all I am so sorry as the preview image looks a bit odd.. That's the best I can do as I took multiple screenshots & then merged them together.
     
    This is a elegant region map which is land-locked in the Northern sides and then water bodies starts from the North-western area and North-eastern area with full water bodies in its South.
     
    Initially I planned to have high mountains in the North but then I decided that if I or you want mountains then we can use the terra-forming tools to achieve that.
     
    Files included (in .zip format)
    config.bmp
    regions.bmp (grayscale)
     
    Please rate it if you like it and if you have any suggestions or both +ve/-ve criticism then do let me know that as well.
     
    If you need any help then also leave your comments here.
     
    Thank you
     
    Update:
    OK updated another preview image after removing those 3 ugly blocks... This screenshot is also not perfect but I hope you will understand that :)
     
    Basic Tutorial to upload & render a region map downloaded from STEX
    1. Go to your region folder and create a folder called Diamond Valley.
    2. Place the config.bmp and regions.bmp files in that folder.
    3. Start or restart SC4.
    4. Create a new region called Diamond Valley. A new region will be created.
    5. Now load another default region like Fairview or Timbuktu. 
    6. Now again load my region Diamond Valley.
    7. Now press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+R and from the Windows browser that pops up select the regions.bmp by going through the correct paths.
    8. After you have selected regions.bmp, click OK.
    9. The rendering will start.
     
    I again repeat that if anybody is facing any problem then do let me know.

  25. Hello Simtropolis! This is the first file I've ever uploaded to LEX, and the first region I've ever created. This is a small region (8x8 small-sized city tiles) based on the land of Equestria from the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic done after a long pony marathon and a. I'm using this map and its successors as a creative outlet and a method of improving my region-making skills.
     
    Once I've got the hang of Terraformer, I'll be putting up an improved 16x16 small-city tile version, hopefully with a less-borked Ponyville-Appleoosa and Unicorn Range area, as well as a more defined Horseshoe Bay and a better-looking Canterlot mountain.
     
    I use Cycledogg's Columbus Terrain and the Lower snowline patch, the Columbus no.7 tree controller, and one of Pegasus's water mods (I forget which, and I can't check my plugins since I've datpacked everything) to make the region appear as it is in the screenshot. I also spawned hordes of horse herds while planting trees for fun.
     
    Comments and suggestions are welcome, and please speak your mind if you have anything to say, even if it is a rant.
     
    Once again, enjoy!
     
    EDIT: Don't use the grayscale heightmap file. It has recently come to my attention that the image which I have exported from Terraformer is broken, in that SC4's importer considers all of it to be below water. I'd fix it, but I don't know how. For now, please use the SC4M and Terraformer to import the region.
     
     
    My sincerest apologies.
