Please help us for July 06/30/2017This 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
By FantozziThis small package holds 10 sc4 ready custom icons in png file format for the following landmark buildings done by Diego Del Llano.
345 California Center
CenturyLink Tower Denver (1801 California Street)
John Hancock Center
Regions Center Tower
Torre Ejecutiva Pemex
Simplest way to embedd these icons in your lot files is to use the icon import function in LEPop. I made them for my personal needs and share them - just in case - to save you some work. These don't go in your Plugin-Folder, they are a resource for modders only. Please use the forums to get help/instruction/tutorials.

By srainyBEIJING, March 29 -- The Olympic Torch plane takes off from Beijing Capital International Airport on Saturday morning, heading for Athens where it will collect the famous flame, Tan Zhihong, senior vice-president of Air China, which provided the plane, said on Friday.
The Airbus A330 passenger airliner, which has 200-plus seats, including 30 for VIPs, has been chartered to carry the torch on its global tour.
A grand ceremony will be held to welcome the flame and officially launch the torch relay of the 2008 Olympic Games.
It will taking place of 767 in games
- This is a "reskin" of the B777 model which is belong to srainy/SANYE.
This supposed to be the AirAsia A320 airline's texture, but I've used a different model.
It was done for my own use, now sharing it for fun if anybody is interested, haha.
Just unzip the .dat file into your plugin folder. It will replace the default 767.

I came up with this idea last night and finished it today.
This will change the ground textures to what you see in the picture.
The snowcapped terrain mod will work with all my terrain mods.
There is a readme in the zip.
That's about it..... I don't know what else to say.
By rivit6 new NAM Rail Viaduct sets -
Red Brick - like Viaduct des Arts in Paris
Brown Brick - matches SC4 tunnels
Concrete and Steel - stark modernish city look
Sandstone - old Italian feel
and not illlustrated
Brown Brick Plain - as shown but no offset brickwork
Red Brick Plain - Like Stockport viaduct in England
Pick ONE ONLY of the above and place into Plugins, in a folder (directory) after

UNLOCKED 10/1 WITH PERMISSION OF SHADOW_ASSASSIN
These texture replacements for the Rural Highway Mod have a similar black asphalt to the Euro Textures, but have American striping (yellow line on the left) instead.
NOTE: This version does not include the RHW2. That will hopefully be coming at a later date.
Place the included .dat file in Plugins\Network Addon Mod\Rural Highway Mod, and ensure that the "zzz" remains at the front of the filename, to ensure that it overwrites any existing textures.
There are no dependencies, except, of course, the RHW.
There is a readme included in the zip file.
If there is an issue I've missed, such as a missing texture, please don't hesitate to post in the DTP Productions thread in the Modding-Open Discussion thread.
Thanks to videosean for his valued and much appreciated assistance, and for having a better photo editing program!
These textures are based off of Shadow Assassin's textures, but have had a few things changed in addition to the yellow line.
Updated to v1.32 with the correction of the incorrect alpha textures on diagonal straight MIS, and the addition of a missing texture for a OWR-MIS + intersection.
ANYONE WHO DOWNLOADED BEFORE 6/20 SHOULD REDOWNLOAD AND REPLACE THE FILES.
By Aquazona883- Parking textures : designed for cars from the SHK Parking Pack or Vip Cars or other larger cars.
- grass and grey overlay textures: they are really simple but you can make a lot with them.
- some maxis-style textures I often missed as a basetexture, especially the dark and grey parking texture.
By RebaLynnTSARS (Artificial River System) Textures
These Textures are required files for the ARS sets.
Please unzip file to your plugins folder.
By SamertonAsphalt Highway Mod NAM Texture Fixes
This mod will fix the missing textures from Thorvin's Asphalt Highway Texture mod.
The missing textures are namely the NAM's Y interchange, the NAM's partial-Y, and the NAM's trumpet interchange.
The trumpet interchange has a slight texture glitch at the merge between the on-ramps. This is only minor, and is only really noticeable at zoom 1.

Network Addon Mod
Simply unzip the downloaded folder into My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins. Make sure it is in a folder, not in the base Plugins folder, eg My Documents/SimCity4/Plugins/ZZZ_Asphalt_Texture_Fix or else the textures will not load. Also, make sure there is at least 1 'z' before the folder name to ensure it loads after the NAM itself.

This mod would have much harder to do without the work of Rivit, creator of GoFSH and the original Coastal Modd. My job was simply to create and replace some images, then letting the program to do its magic.
When planning my upcoming CJ, based on a volcanic island, I noted the lack of a black texture to match basaltic sands: the available ones were granitic, grey sands, or overly black and unrealistic ones.
This newer sands should match adequately in any volcanic or basaltic coast, from Iceland to New Zealand, provided they are match with a dark cliff texture (there's an upcoming one from this part!).
This mod replaces textures both for terrain and beach lot sands, including custom ones.
Just asure you this mod is loaded AFTER anyone changing the default sand textures.
Also, being an SD texture, this is not compatible with HD terrain mods (like Gobias' and Lowkee ones), because they read the images as being four times bigger, stretching and pixelating them in the process. Also, those mods usually include their own sand textures.

SUPPORT and HELP:
I made a development and support thread on Simtropolis, you can visit it with the following link:
matias93 Unexpected mod workshop
By SimFoxHere is a set of games base textures (used for plazas and some such) that have been adjusted (in terms of Hue, Saturation and Brightness) to be used in BATed content.
Need for such an adjustment comes from the fact that both games and BAT have own lighting that affects different items in Game and it is not really compatible. Don’t ask me why such an approach had been taken by the creators of the game in the first place, but here we are.
This first set contains most commonly used textures, these are games own, default ones. Adjustment had been made for lighting setup in Bat4Max V4.5 only and will be most fitting with Max 2008 and newer. Enjoy!
on pictures four tiles marked by red arrow are BAT model with these adjusted textures applied, while tiles around it are simply plopped with games plazas (eg textures raw) to show compatibility.
Textures are in folders named after their IID in games DAT
By RandyEThese textures are freely useable and distributable for any SC4 user created content, if they are used in lot-making it is better to refer to them as a dependency and link back to this file to keep file space on the STEX free of mulitiple repeated content. The texture data file is located in the FOLDER: Elements Textures DAT, 3 sample lots are in the FOLDER: Elements Sample Lots, and 1 7x8 test lot showing all 55 textures is now included in the FOLDER: Test Lot 7x8 Park. Also included are the 2 previews showing all the textures and this text in readme.txt and HTML.
The texture '.dat' file size is 498K with 55 textures. This volume is called 'Elements', including diagonal, broken, patterned and squared stone, dirt, grass, metal, pavement, sand, water and wood. Also included are 3 sample lots found in the Parks Menu, each have been made functional for radical purposes of helping with start-up cash, reducing pollution and garbage, and recovery from nuclear meltdown.
DAT FILE INCLUDED:
FOLDER: Elements Textures DAT
FOLDER: Test Lot 7x8 Park
This is one lot with all 55 textures in a 7x8 grid. This lot may be used to preview the textures in-game, then delete.
FOLDER: Elements Sample Lots
1.) Subfolder: Patterned Grass (Anti Pollution)
Menu description: Base Textures Elements (Anti-Pollution)

INSTALL the TEXTURES and SAMPLE LOTS
To install the sample lots copy and paste the 'Elements Sample Lots' folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder. The sample lots are found in the Parks Menu.
To install the textures copy and paste the 'Elements Textures DAT' folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.
ABOUT the TEXTURES, INFO FOR LOTTERS and GAMERS
The texture images are derivatives of images from a variety of commonly, freely shared sources, hand re-worked for use with SC4. The design of the textures leans toward lower contrast, saturation and brightness as more usual in realism, and for dimmer screens.
If using them for creating and distributing SC4 lots the '.FSH' file may be extracted and included as a '.DAT', but don't re-distribute changed associations between the image and the ID (instance) as that could impact another user of the file. No crediting is required, but no claim of original artwork should be made if redistributing them with SC4 lots.
The Texture ID Range was assigned by the BSC Texture Index at SC4 Devotion. http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=2101.0 To redistribute variations of the textures or to make your own, request and use a unique personal Texture ID Range at SC4D.
By Null 45This is a tool I wrote to convert multiple png / bmp images into fsh images. It takes a list of images and converts each image into a fsh file of the same name.
The instance range in "instRange.txt" must be changed to your assigned range.
The .NET Framework 3.5 Client profile is required on Windows Vista and XP.
Additional documentation is in the Readme. The support thread is Batch Png to Fsh tool.

This was called "BBlue" for no good reason. I could not think of an appropriate adjective to describe it with.
By BIWDCok here is my first texture pack now these textures in this pack are parking lot textures as seen in the pictures above and there are 2 parking textures in them that can be used at the same time and i worked out the instance numbers problem i had so there shouldn't be a problem with them replacing any other textures but if there is trouble please let me know,leave a comment or send me a private message now these are availible to anyone who wishes to use them in there lot but if you upload it on the STEX please don't just give the texture files with your lot have them get it from here.,oh and these are base textures and i have not used them in my lots yet.
(enjoy and please rate)
(2005 Biwdc Lot's Inc.)
