      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


Props to create custom SimCity 4 lots.

1,133 Files

  1. In the interest of efficiency and consistancy, I have merged ALL prop packs and texture packs that I created into one MEGA Prop Pack.  Some of these files were never released individually.  Most of them have had minor enhancements, and improvements over time. 
    For best results, please remove the following files from your system before installing this pack.  This pack replaces ALL of these files. Some of these files may have been slightly renamed, so if one on your system matches closely, but not exactly, it is probably the same one.

  2. A few props you may need to make your streets a bit more "alive". Most of them are night-enlighted, so don't forget that they must not be put across the lot limit in the LE (they would lose their nitelite in the game).
    [PK-tunnel top] and [PK_tunnel whole] must be stacked exactly at the same place on your lot.
    The buses only show up a few hours in the day.
    The newspapers shop's appearance changes in the middle of the night.
    The Christmas stuff only appears between december 15th and january 14th.


       (206 Reviews)



  3. A MEGA collection of seasonal and evergreen trees and shrubs, fences, walls, hedges, and cars (including diagonal versions of most items).  Will be used on forthcoming lots.
    Also adds 4 trees to your mayor mode menu.  Like the default mayor mode trees, these trees start small and grow with age.
    To install, unzip, and run the .exe installer.


       (151 Reviews)



  4. 4 trees which change with seasons. As they got a concrete base at the bottom, they are especially designed for street use. They're also night-enlighted, so don't place them across the lot limit in the LotEditor (they would lose their nitelight in the game).
    Don't worry: there will be no tree on your lot before the next season swap: it's normal.
    In the LE, stack together at the same place:
    [PK-tree01-fall] + [PK-tree01-winter] + [PK-tree01-summer] + [Pk-leaves-street]
    [PK-tree02-fall] + [PK-tree02-winter] + [PK-tree02-summer] + [Pk-leaves-street]
    and so on...

  6. The SHK Parking Pack is a combination prop and texture pack designed to enable lotters to create varied and distinct parking lots with little or no need for multiple dependencies. This project is the result of many months of work with the overall goal of providing everything I could think of to make any configuration of parking area needed.
    There are 3 parts to this download, textures, vehicles and parking props.


    Contains a set of 5 asphalt and concrete base textures as well as a few overlays for bridging connections at various points where other textures meet.

    In addition there are 2 files which contain the bulk of the overlays. Two identical sets have been created utilizing both white and yellow space lines, that when used correctly work as a texture changer to enable utilizing either all white or all yellow space lines for any lots.

    [color=#800080]Vehicle Props[/color]

    The largest part of the pack is the vehicle props, starting with 150 single timed and untimed vehicles in both orthogonal and diagonal varieties (300 total). In addition there are a large number of orthogonal and diagonal timed clusters (68 total).

    Both the individual vehicles and clusters utilize a special timing system that along with the included prop families enable the creation of ever changing lots with little to no chance of repetition.

    [color=#0000FF]* For full details on this system and others within this pack, please refer to the included documentation.[/color]

    [color=#800080]Parking Props[/color]

    A collection of over 100 props to add character and life to your lots, everything from shopping carts to speedbumps.

    [color=#FF0000]*Note - This download contains no lots, it is intended as a dependency for my own and others future lots.[/color]

  7. The three most recent Commuter Train models for Sydney Rail.

    This is a major revision. Now sporting the correct dimensions and new more metallic looking skins. Also added night lighting (a guess actually as I've not seen them at night - must do some trainspotting...). Your feeedback does help to improve the art.
    Now they can only be used one at a time. They were never designed to be mixed and they aren't in real-life either, 

    Files end up in Plugins
    ....0000.dat files replace the game train, and only ONE of these will work at a time

    Full instructions are included in the Readme Installation.txt File.

    This Pack completely replaces the previous pack earlier released.

  8. A Prop set of chestnut trees (altogether 8 models) that will be used in my upcoming releases.
    All models are grouped into a family and as such may provide variety for the LOTs.
    These are day only ( no special night lighting) so they with some tweaking may be used for mass plantations.

  9. This Essentials included ehbk2006's High Definition cantanery model and some custom supports props, necessary for Rail_Catenary_Mod_V3 and HSR_Catenary_Mod, and future ELR Catenary Mod

    Be sure delete the old version and "NL-Special-Cantanery-props.dat" if installed
    I recommend Extract the "Catenary_Essentials.dat" in zip file into my Catenary_Mod main directory (SimCity 4\Plugins\Network Addon Mod\z_Catenary_Mod)
       just delete the Catenary_Essentials.dat file.
    Any question or suggestion, please post on the topic in SC4D forum:

  10. Following in jeronij's footsteps, this is another "all inclusive" mod that changes the look of your streets. The main focus is set to residential streets; however, a few commercial and agricultural zones can be altered as well. Other optional files will also change the look of the default Maxis trees on roads and oneway roads. The main goal of this mod is to add trees to streets in residential zones, as well as parked cars, which is a very common sight throughout Europe.

    Mod Details
    This mod is fully modular, so you can decide which street and road tiles should be affected by the mod, and you can also decide which trees should show up there. For this purpose, several street tree DATs have been created. It's even possible to mix the various tree styles, however the result will look best when you only install one DAT at once. More tree style DATs can be created later to use trees by other designers as well. Unfortunately, this method doesn't work for seasonal trees, but a seasonal tree version of this mod might be released later.

    Depending on wealth type and zone density, the look of the streets varies. You won't see any cars parked on the curb in high-wealth low density zones, and only medium and high density zones will have parking bays and dirt circles for the trees. Please note that the DATs for roads and oneway roads will only change the trees, but they do not add any cars or parking bays to your roads. The DAT for agricultural zones doesn't add any cars or parking bays either.

    You can install or uninstall the mod at any time you want. To update your streets with the new look (or the default Maxis look again), simply select the street tool and click on your streets, i. e. on the crossroads. The props will change automatically in a radius of a few tiles. By clicking more than one time, you can also alter the appearance of the trees, in case the first click didn't meet your liking for some reason. If brown boxes are showing up, please make sure you have all dependencies, as listed below.


    This mod is not compatible with any other street mod, such as jeronij's streetside mod, ardecila's street tree mod, swamper77's no palm mod (however, the files that remove the palms from lots etc. will work fine) or Pegasus' no street junk mod. If other mods that modify the look of the streets are installed, only the one that is loaded last will determine the appearance in the game.


    If you want to use Cycledogg's or Pegasus' trees, you also have to install the following files. The files described above will use trees from all four packs by Cycledogg, so make sure these are installed properly. If you don't install the dependencies, brown boxes will show up on your streets.
    CP_PropPack_Vol01.dat CP_PropPack_Vol02.dat CPT_No8_TreeModelsPartOne.dat CPT_No9_TreeModelsPartTwo.dat PEG_MTP_RESOURCE_vol1.dat Please make sure to read the readme file for further details. This mod is using an installer, Mac users can find a ZIP version

  11. [b]Murimk Props Vol02[/b]

    [b][i]Last update: September 2011[/i][/b]

    [i]Parks, fences, graffiti and more[/i]

    This is my second set of props (the first one beeing 'Murimk Bicycle Props v01').

    This pack contains various prop sets for lotting purposes.

    * Park Props (large and small set)

    * Park Fences (tiles and puzzle set)

    * Industrial Walls

    * Graffitis

    Please see a complete listing and description in the individual text files for every subset!



    All props from this pack can be used to make your own lots. Do not include them in your upload though - please point to this pack as a dependency.

    Each set is packed in its own subset, so you can choose which part you want to use.

    If you only use part of the pack for a lot, point out the utilized subset(s) in your description, so the player as well may choose which parts of this pack to install.

    The folder 'Documentation' contains -

    * ReadMe files for each subset

    * images for each subset

    * a suite of testlots (for previewing only!)

    Store the complete 'Documentation' outside your 'Plugins' for future reference.

  12. The SFBT Essentials contain the custom UIs that every SFBT lot uses, as well as shared textures and prop packs. The file will be updated from time to time, so please check back to this download once in a while.
    This is the March 2009 version of the essentials installer. Further versions will include the date in the filename as well, so you can easily find out if you have an outdated version installed.

    The installer will update all files if they are placed in the default folder (\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins\SFBT\) automatically, otherwise you will have to update them manually and delete outdated files. The readme files contains a list of all files that are included in this version.

    Unfortunately, the installer programis not compatible with a Mac - a ZIP version of the Essentials is available here.

  15. Like many of the BSC members, I've been going through my old prop packs and consolidating them into a single big .dat file. Our testing with the Miramba experiment has shown that game startup time is related to the size and depth of the plugins folder. So we're reducing the number of files the game has to load on startup.
    This prop pack contains a single 9.5M .dat file that replaces eleven previously published prop file, plus includes another one that I haven't published. The replaced downloads/files are shown in the following table. I have only consolidated prop packs that contain props that others have used (or are likely to use in the future). If the props are very specific to a lot (such as my Aussie retail buildings) I have not included them.
    Original download Files replaced Notes DEDWD Factory Unit Props DEDWD_FactoryUnit_props.dat DEDWD IHT Buildings as Props DEDWD_IHT_Pharmaceuticals_props.dat Note 1. DEDWD School Set Props DEDWD_SchoolSet_props.dat Note 2. BSC Bicycle Prop Pack BSC_DAE_Bicycle_props.dat DEDWD Mega Prop Pack DEDWD_Props_Vol01.dat Note 3. DEDWD_Props_Vol02.dat DEDWD_Props_Vol03.dat BSC DAE Forest Lot Prop Pack BSC_DAE_ForestLot_props BSC DAE Train Prop Pack Vol01 BSC_DAE_TrainProps_Vol01.dat BSC BRF Train Prop Pack BSC_BRF_TrainProps.dat BSC Railyard Props Vol1 BSC_Railyard_props_Vol1.dat
    You still need the original DEDWD IHT Pharmaceuticals download for the models to go with these props. This file is in the {mydocs}\SimCity 4\Plugins\deadwoods\DEDWD_SchoolSet folder. Ignore the name, this DEDWD MEGA Prop Pack is a new file and includes the old one. As this pack is replacing the files listed above, you must remove them before/after installing this pack.
    There are only props in this download. There are no lots.
    You are welcome to use these props in your own lots, but you cannot re-distribute the files found here. You must refer/link to them on the STEX.

  18. NYC BAT Team presents:
    NYC bus stop props - RTMT compatible
    Modelling and modding by Gwail
    This is a pack of the NYC MTA bus sign and bus shelter props with 8 different advertisements (Mc Donald's, ESPN, Hard Rock Cafe, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Burn the energy drink, Hancock the movie and NYC yellow cab). The original bus shelter design has been made by Cemusa.
    The pack doesn't include any lot files. The props are designed to work with Roadtop Mass Transit (RTMT) series, but can be used in any other lots as well. To see the bus stops in the game, use Lot Editor or install the RTMT package. For installation instructions see the RTMT readme.

    Release of RTMT add-on pack v3.60 makes this upload obsolete, as the RTMT v3.60 includes all props presented here. Use my NYC bus stop props only if you are using RTMT v3.51 and older.
    If you have any question or bug report, please visit my development thread at SC4Dev or NYBT BAT Team thread.
    Big, big thanks to z and cogeo from RTMT Team for their help. Special thanks to cogeo for his angelic patience and many helpful tips, without them these BATs wouldn't look as they do.

  19. Tree-related props and flora including trees, stumps, slash piles, logs.  This file also adds some flora items to your Mayor Mode flora menu, which will allow you to plop a few types of trees that grow over time in the game.  It also adds ploppable logs, such as found along rivers and beaches of Northwestern North America (and probably many other places too.)
    Some of the ploppable trees may require the following files to be in your plugins (to avoid brown boxes)
    Cycledogg Tree Mod
    (The actual files from the Cycledogg Tree Mod that need to be in your plugins are: CPT_No8_TreeModelsPArtOne.dat and CPT_No9_TreeModelsPartTwo.dat)

    This pack will be a dependency for upcoming BSC timber farm series lots, and for future god-mode tree controllers, and for possible future street tree mods.

  22. New Horizons Productions
    New York City

    By beskhu3epnm

    New York City is the largest city in the United States and one of the world's major global cities. Located in the state of New York, the city has a population of over 8.2 million within an area of 321 square miles (approximately 830 km²) making it the most densely populated major city in North America. With a population of 18.7 million, the New York Metropolitan Area is one of the largest urban areas in the world.
    However, in SC4, it will be up to you to decide whether or not to replicate this giant, or to simply create something new.
    This map was created using new 16bit technology that makes maps 100% accurate. Created entirely from 16bit PNG greyscale (JPEG is 8bit), the map never drops below 16bits of data. It is spaced for 16m per pixel, 1:1 in the SC4 world. The elevations are 100% accurate as per DEM data. This is an exact replica!
    The map measures 7 large tiles wide by 10 large tiles long (1793x2561). A config is included in the package, however don’t limit yourself creatively, as it is all large tiles.
    The various harbors and landings in the city were represented in the DEM data, and therefore are still present. They only take a few seconds to remove, however. Do so at your own risk!!
    The Columbus Terrain Textures were used when opening/saving the city tiles in game, but any terrain mod can used to do the same.
    The PEG Brigantine Water Mod was used when opening/saving the city tiles in game, but any terrain mod can used to do the same.
    Make sure to visit our NHP Map Forum for posting your thoughts, suggestions, requests and comments + sneak peaks of future maps by the New Horizons Productions Team. Also, there are some much better screenshots of this map available in the thread. Enjoy this map, and don’t forget to comment & rate, even if you hate it!

  23. Here's a large pack of models i made, for my  former CJ Pridnestrova , some are nightlighted, some are not. Don't even bother asking which, because frankly i don't remember.
    There are quite a few of these, and i damned well just barely managed to make this under 10 mb.
    Due to the limit of pics for the props i also included some extras in the zip. all JPG of course.
    All these models are released as props. And could be handy for anyone making East European or even asian cities.

    Enjoy. And remember, these BATs were never intended to release. So don't expect no bixel quality here.

    None of these props will either be used as dependancies for my own . Don't ask for growables, don't ask for lots. and if you have the know how to make growables; Feel free to release the lots, but NOT the models.
