      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      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

Textures

Textures to create custom SimCity 4 lots.

311 Files

  1. Never thought of myself as an innovator, but when I saw "Starry Night" after frekle downloaded it, I was compelled to act.
    Made from purple, glitter, felt..I've been using these backgrounds for about 3 months after many trials and errors.  They're seamless, mildy unique per each view, and while space is black, the dark, sparkly purple gives the suggestion of black holes, comets, novas, meteors, suns of a few different colors, planets, satellites, quasars, pulsars, etc.
     
    ...and shame on me for not sharing earlier...STEX ROCKS!!!
     
    PS: Do urself a favor: check out Whaleridge Bridegport.  I'm playing on a 4079x4079 one(ver. 1, Photoshop enhanced for xtra depth, for whales, of course...not an issue for ver. 2) that took about 11 hours to render..I don't think I'll play any other region ever again!!

  2. Updated 3/2/08
    Added 3 textures including a diagonal.
    If you downloaded before update , just let this file overwrite the previous download.

    These are filler textures that I had created for my use to blend the sandstone texture with the maxis white texture.

    The images are just a representation
    There are no lots , these are only textures for you to create your own using Lot Editor.

    To install , simply place Sithlrd98_SimpleTextures_1.dat
    into \My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins and fire up Lot editor & they will appear towards the end under Base Textures. These textures are in compliance with the BSC texture index so there shouldn't be any conflicts.

    These are my first attempts at texture creating so please be gentle!

    Thanks for downloading!


    Special thanks to RebaLynn for her input!

  3. On popular request, here are my favourite roof textures for Your use!
     
    This pack includes 16 roof textures, including brick, copper, concrete slate and even wood shingles. You will just as well find roofs for any wealth stage.
     
    The concrete slates are based on a free texture found on the net. The rest of the textures are custom-made by me, made from own photos or created from scratch in Photoshop.
     
    The contents in this package are totally free to use for any purpose.
     
    I would like to thank gascooker for his great "curves" tutorial which has helped me a lot with my texture creations.

  4. This is a plug-in that I wrote that allows Windows Explorer to display thumbnails of Fsh files.

    The installer will automatically decide if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit OS and install the correct version.

    The support thread is: Fsh file Thumbnails for Windows XP, 7 and Vista.

  5. - 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.

  7. Hi again, this is the final set of brushes.
    (Only for Photoshop 7 & above)
     
    Making the hills to work properly took me sometime, and sadly i only made 2 =(
    There are now Delta rivers (4) included, and some other rivers.
     
    Doh!
    Another thing, when you're using the hill brushes, you 'MUST' use white (RGB 255) otherwise you hill will become a lake.

    There are installation instructions in the Readme file, must read!
     
    If you use these brushes, and upload in STEX(or any other sc4 site) please credit me.
    (All of the brushes are drawn freehand by me)
    Any problems PM me.
     
    Once again thank you and goodbye.

  12. This is a tool that I wrote to create multi-image textures. It can also add images to a fsh file in an existing dat.

    The instance range in "instRange.txt" must be changed to your assigned range from the BSC Texture Index. Additional documentation is in the Readme. The support thread is Multi Fsh Tool

    The .NET Framework 3.5 Client profile is required on Windows Vista and XP.

  16. Have you ever been annoyed about how your road roundabout looks like a big square “box?” Well, the Road Roundabout Texture Mod is for you! It will remove the annoying crosswalks from the road roundabout textures.
    The Road Roundabout Texture Mod will replace all (a total of 50) textures of networks entering a road roundabout. This includes streets, roads, and one-way roads.
    To install, simply place the downloaded folder in your Plugins directory. Note that this folder must have a name later in the alphabet than that of the NAM, so the Road Roundabout Texture Mod will load after it.
    This mod is just eye candy. It does not affect any part of your transportation network.
    There are technically no dependencies, though this mod will not function without the Network Addon Mod (NAM), which can be found in the “Modds and Downloads” section here on Simtropolis.
    Thanks to the NAM team for the original road roundabout textures.
    More instructions and more pictures are included in the readme.

  18. *** Updated Aug 5, 2007 *

    Don't like the plain bold text on your roads? Then this alternative road-markings theme may be for you. Though this set is of German MT stops and stations, it can also be used in English installations as well, as the word BUS is spelled the same in both languages and the U logo may well mean "Underground".
    This set of overlay textures is intended for use with the Roadtop Mass-Transit package.
    The package contains two sets of bus stop and subway markings for streets, roads, one-way roads and avenues, with the BUS marking printed horizontally and vertically. It is for right-hand driving installations only.
    Credits:
    Many thanks to Andreas Roth for the photos and the information he has provided.

    * Aug 5, 2007: Added textures for the GLR-in-Avenue Stations (available from version 3.50).

    See Also:
    - UK Bus Stop Road Markings (this set is for left-hand driving installations only)
    - Berlin Mass-Transit Theme (a set of Berlin bus-stops and subways)
