      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

Marigli's Diary of 1690-1700 , speak Vlach village Vucova belong Lugoj district . After the conquest of the Austrian Banat , appear early writings detailed documentation on Vucova . The 1717 census records the village Vukowo with 63 wooden houses, belonging Ciacova district . Shortly after, in 1723-1725 , the map appears Count Mercy , which again confirms the existence of village Wacova name . Old center of the village is little more to the south than the current one . In 1785 , by administrative decree , part of the southern border has been reorganized to accommodate a new German colonies that would become the village Niţchidorf . All settlements within the same program , another part of the land Vucova were attached to the neighboring village Blajova , all to accommodate the German colonists who settled there since 1785. Throughout the eighteenth century , continued Vucova be inhabited by Romanian . They had a wooden Orthodox church .

  6. The old upload was taken down a while back because I had pre-rendered the map which made the download way to big to be an acceptable size so I took the time to rebuild the map somewhat before uploading it as a much more compact .SC4M file.
     
    I mainly did this because the original heightmap I used had poor quality and I had taken a lot of creative editing to make it look the way it did. The new map however is based on a much more detailed map of the Antarctican continent without the ice sheet, and this one also has much more accurate isostatic rebound and sea level rise. So it should be ready to play as-is.
     
    There are 11 Large, 34 Medium and 18 Small playable land-based city regions. The map totals at 28 x 28 small map regions on each side.
     
    Please note that the map is not to scale (Antarctica is twice the size of Australia). I just did this for fun.
     
    Changes from the previous map include a rotation 90 degrees clockwise so that the side of Antarctica that faces south america is facing "North," as well as a much higher quality height map that includes both sea level rise from all the melted ice and the isostatic rebound of the continent rising higher due to having less weight pressing down on it.

  10. 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

  15. 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.
