      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 to create custom SimCity 4 lots.

311 Files

  1. This small package holds 10 sc4 ready custom icons in png file format for the following landmark buildings done by Diego Del Llano.
     
    AON Center
    345 California Center
    CenturyLink Tower Denver (1801 California Street)
    Columbia Center
    Commerzbank Tower
    Denver Place
    Dirksen Building
    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.

  6. KOSC Presents: IndustryMania - Trucking Essentials
    Introduction
    Do you want to recreate a large distribution center with ample truck parking space of all angles and populate them with tons of random trailers from different freight and logistic companies? This essentials package, which is the prelude to my upcoming IndustryMania re-lot series, provides a set of custom truck parking textures and prop families for @MushyMushy's HD North American trucks which will allow you to do just that.
    Package Overview
    This package contains a set of 38 unique overlay textures, offered in either white or yellow paint for a total of 76. Additionally, there are 36 prop families that cover all of the props included in the original trailers and semi cab sets. Additional details are in the enclosed README.
    Install Instructions
    Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. Note that the prop families DAT supersedes the original props' .sc4desc files. It is recommended that you relocate or remove the original from your plugins folder to avoid potential conflict. 
    Dependencies
    The textures are standalone and will not require any dependencies. However, the prop families will not function properly without the original trucks:
    Props

  7. These 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
    FILE: SC4_BaseTextures_Vol01_1_Elements.dat
    FOLDER: Test Lot 7x8 Park
    FILE: A0A_Base_Textures_Vol01_Elements_55_Test.SC4Lot
    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)
    Vol. 1: Grass Texture.  This lot is a sample which also provides some radical relief from pollution and garbage.

    _________________________________
    3.) Subfolder: SC4 Logo (50K Business Deal)
    Menu Description: Base Textures Elements (Bus. Deal)
    Vol. 1: Elements. 55 Textures: Stone, Dirt, Grass, Metal, Pavement, Sand, Water, Wood.   Use Lot Editor to see all the textures.

    _________________________________
    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.

  8. This tool is a useful aide in the texture creation process for SimCity.

    GoFSH, which has been written in VB.NET (referencing original FSHTool sources), knows how to make and split (into color and alpha bitmaps) all common FSH files (including animation sets) and make DXT1 and DXT3 FSH files from .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .tiff or .png files. The process is extremely simple, requires only a few clicks and allows you much more time to concentrate on better textures.

    Additionally FSH file-sets of different scales can be created. GoFSH is built to make batch processing easy and is designed to work closely with iLive Reader. All FSH files in SimCity have been read, modified and manipulated using GOFSH as part of testing, then reloaded successfully into SimCity - so I'm quite sure it works.

    Included at installation is a quick reference and worked examples (as a .pdf) of how to use GoFSH to produce custom textures.
    Installation Notes:
    Doubleclick the .msi file and follow the prompts to install. The GoFSH installation results in 3 files - GoFSH.exe, rvtvbFSHLib.dll and rvtvbGDIP.dll, all of which are installed automatically. It can be installed anywhere. A GOFSH folder is created in the user Profile.

    It is written for Windows to use .NET v2.0 and the installer will go and get this if it is not on your computer. It is know to run well on XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10  (32 and 64bit).

    Even though is now version 2.96 and the program has been very extensively tested , there could still be oddities - please read the manual and interact on my Forum Support thread. However I do not accept responsibility for your safe computing practices. Back up everything you do - even before you realise that it is valuable to you - as once lost is lost.

    rivit 1 May 2013
    This version has really changed a lot since v2.2 in 2013. For this I would like to thank RSC04 for the year or so of program development, testing and ideas we shared in coming to this version of the program.

  9. AKNOWLEGDEMENTS:
    This mod would have fundamentally impossible to do without the work of Rivit, MGB, Gobias and KOSC. 
    I'm basically blending their creations or mimicking them, and using their software to create usable plugins.
    DESCRIPTION:
    King of SimCity recently published a repository of its SuperSHK and SuperSHK+ textures and taking the opportunity to expand the coverage of my sidewalk mod, I've downloaded it and created this custom textures, that REPLACE KOSC's ones. Why replace? Because it allows you to use them directly on any lot that already uses SuperSHK parkings, and because I'm lazy enough to not even try to get my own IID range.
    As a design choose, this textures doesn't include the coloured tiles on the paving (because keeping it produced some strange cropped and jagged motives), but only the base tiles, subtlely wealthified as in the sidewalk mod.
    This is the Sudden Valley version of the retexture, but it uses an open source texture that merely matches the colour and feel of Gobias' mod, so there is no actual redistributing of his work. In the near future and according to the users' demand, I'll release more versions for SD and HD grass textures; same thing if I manage to publish the basalt tiles' sidewalk.
    COMPATIBILITY:
    This mod REPLACES the original SuperSHK and SuperSHK+ (FAR) textures, so get sure it will load AFTER THE ORIGINAL KOSC FILES; alternatively, you can overwrite them to use less disk space, but that's not necessary. As they are a replacement pack, the textures will be automatically changed on all lots that use the original
    textures.
    FILE FORMAT: 
    The files are updated on 7z format, because it does wonders with repetitive bitmap files. You'll be downloading the full pack on just 3.4 Mb, while the full repository is 180 Mb. To open this files, you'll need Seven Zip, which is a free, open source, cross-platform, lightweight and programmable file compressor (unexplainably not the standard for everything); download it here. If, for any reasons, you cannot open the file or can't download sevenzip, send me a PM or left a comment here and I'll upload a more compatible zip version in no time  
    DEPENDENCIES: <-- copied from the original SuperSHK readme
    "None. This set will serve as a future dependency for my [KOSC] lots. While it is technically a standalone texture pack, SHK Parking Pack is very, very highly recommended to take full advantage."
    As is obvious, this mod will work but look awkward without using both Gobias' Sudden Valley terrain mod and my Veredas Santiaguinas sidewalk mod. You can also achieve a more seamlessly look complementing with MGB's TGN for Sudden Valley. Even more obvious, as this is a replacement pack for a dependency, you'll see nothing of it working unless having lots that use the textures: look for lots that require the SuperSHK textures or use KOSC Superparking modular lots to create your own parking lots ingame.
    LICENSE:
    This mod has a Creative Commons Attribution - Non Commercial 4.0 International license, what means you can use all its content directly or creating something derivately, while you give explicit attribution to all previous authors, and while you don't charge for accessing or using this content or a derivate you create of it.
    To create the textures, I used a grass texture on the public domain and Paint.net to mimic the colour of Gobias' Sudden Valley; and obviously, KOSC's SuperSHK repository. This last one is subject to its own license (check the linked post above) and previous authors, particularly Shokthrpy.

  10. KOSC presents: SuperSHK+ FA3 Parking Textures
    Introduction

    Happy New Year! Need some irregularity in your lotting? SuperSHK is back with a plus and a whole assortment of FA3-aligned textures for you to play with.
    Overview
    This set contains at total of 482 new overlay textures.
    SuperSHK+ takes the original set and adds quite a bit of additional support for FA3 angled pathways. Additionally, there are a host of extra textures included meant to patch some missing areas from the first set.
    Details
    These textures are broken into 4 DATs. The included resource guide offers a slightly more detailed look at the different texture options offered here.
    DAT 1 - Curbs: Contains an assortment of FA3 aligned curb pieces and connectors.
    DAT 2 - Parking Transitions: Contains transitions and intersections between different parking types with FA3 curbs.
    DAT 3 - Pseudo-FA3 (PFA3): Contains a set of FA3 aligned orthogonal parking spaces and a few basic transitions.
    DAT 4 - Extras: Adds medians and additional support for S-Curves from the original set.
    Install Instructions
    Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. These should show up under the overlay texture section in the lot editor and PIM-X. 
    Dependencies
    NONE. This set is a dependency. Lotters that want to take full advantage of this set will need the SHK Parking Pack and base set:
    Credit to shokthrpy for the original SHK set. Additional thanks goes out to rsc204 & rivit for their invaluable work with GoFSH (and Bender) and texture replacement -  this set would not be possible without their tools.

  12. Disclaimer:
    Please feel free to develop your own lots using these lot foundations/retaining walls, but if sharing them, please point to this files as a dependency.
     
    Short description:
    Some lots, when being placed on slopes, will either raise the floor beneath them, or cut into the hill. In the former case, a lot foundation is being created, in the latter, a retaining wall. Perhaps it's just me, but I’m quite surprised that I’ve only found very few plugins with custom foundations and none at all with retaining walls; therefore, I’ve turned some textures by Maxis or other authors (see below for credits) into lot foundations and retaining walls. This plugin therefore acts as a dependency for plugin developers, providing them with the necessary textures and exemplar files.
     
    Dependencies:
    As it is a dependency itself, this plugin has no external dependencies.
     
    Contained Files:
    LotFoundations.dat: Contains textures and exemplar files for lot foundations. Mandatory.
    RetainingWalls.dat: Contains textures and exemplar files for retaining walls. Mandatory.
    TestLots.dat: This file contains some testing lots that have one texture from both files applied to them, allowing you to test them in-game. These lots do not cost anything and do not have any special features. They are at the bottom of the park menu. If you do not want these lots, you can remove this file safely.
    Other than that, this download contains a Readme (unfortunately, due to its size, this time only in English) containing all necessary informations, as well as a tutorial on how to actually switch to another fondation/retaining wall and how to use lots if they are supposed to be placed on slopes.
     
    Installation:
    Move or copy all files in this archive into the Plugins folder of your copy of SimCity 4. To uninstall, just remove these files.
     
    Compatibility:
    This plugin should be compatible with all versions of SimCity 4. If you find out that this is not the case, please tell me.
     
    Credits:
    My special thanks go to all authors that kindly gave me permission to modify and share their work. At the moment, this ist just one person:
    Mas71: His set of Japanese hill retaining walls surely is part of the plugins that I’m using most frequently. Now, their functionability is even being expanded.

  13. Ever wanted to place just the rails on a concrete surface?
    Well, with 398 pieces at your disposal, now you can.
    PIMX and LE users rejoice!
    This RRW compatible sleeper-less and ballast-less texture set is made to be used on concrete, asphalt, brick and stone surfaces.
    I have covered almost every possible rail configuration. I left out some that would not be suitable to place on lots.
    Included with this pack is a comprehensive jpeg collection of some of the possible configurations to get you started.
    Remember that you can flip, mirror and rotate the tiles for even more possibilities. Your imagination is the limit.
    If you have any questions or would like me to add even more configurations, please visit my thread at SCD4 to post your requests.  http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=17211.340
    Dependencies?  Well none, because this is it!

  15. AKNOWLEGDEMENTS:
    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.
    DESCRIPTION:
    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.
    COMPATIBILITY:
    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.
    LICENSE: <-- this time there's no typo
    This mod has a Creative Commons Attribution - Non Commercial 4.0 International licence, what means you can use all its content directly or creating something derivately, while you give explicit attribution to all previous authors, and while you don't charge for accessing or using this content or a derivate you create of it.
    To create the textures, I used a sand texture made by tatyana.

  20. Do you use a Sidewalk mod that does not come with a Maxis Texture Replacer? Have you made your own custom sidewalks and want to extend them from the transit networks to your Lots? If the answer to either question is yes, you'll want to click download.
    In essence this file is a tutorial with step by step instructions (Word Document) from simply replacing the three default Maxis plaza textures (10 minutes work) to complete removal of all of the default Maxis textures that use the Grey, White and Pink colour scheme.
    ============================================================================================================
    NEW OPTION (MTRDK_Automated_Preview.zip) - JUN 2015
    Due to a new technique, proposed by Rivit,, it is now possible to automate creating the textures in this set. You'll need the latest version of GoFSH to process them. If you select to download the file MTRDK_Automated_Preview.zip, you will find in the archive a texture repository with all the required files, including a script for use with GoFSH. For now, I will keep the old files available in case anyone prefers that. More information on the automated texture creation for SC4 can be found here if you are interested.
    =============================================================================================================
    Absolutely no modding experience is required to follow along, and included is my MTRDK (Maxis Texture Replacement Dev Kit) which includes pre-modified files that make creating replacements very easy. The screenshots above show the final results of this process with Paeng's Sandstone textures. This mod is an extension of my tutorial here on Sidewalks and how to get the most out of them.
    You will need SC4 Tools to follow along (and a photo editor for the optional final part).
    Hopefully someone will find this useful.

  21. KOSC presents: SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures
    Introduction

    Take parking lots to the next level! SuperSHK MEGA Textures is the backbone of my Superparking Project, and combines the original Volume 1 alongside the newly complete Volume 2 set. This MEGA set combines both for the ultimate parking lot texture resource for SC4.
    Overview
    This combined set contains at total of 1281 overlay textures (352 from Vol 1).

    Volume 2 contains a mind-boggling 929 new overlay textures. This set focus on expanding the core aspects of Volume 1 while adding some rather ridiculous new options. As with before, many of the new textures influences were found primarily from around North America's tech centers including Overland Park, Denver Tech Corridor, Silicon Valley, and Irvine. Additionally, some other inspiration came from various locations around the UK, including Portsmouth - these were largely responsible for my designing of a bunch of UK-style road markings.
    As it is now officially part of this combined set, SuperSHK Parking Textures Vol. 1 is now obsolete! This set retains every single texture from volume 1 and provides some overall enhancements to a large amount of them, including the following:
    Smoother curves Alignment fixes Smoothing and resizing of existing road markings to maintain consistency Furthermore, the "Extra" textures included with both modular sets are also no longer necessary. To aid you in cleaning any leftover old stuff, there is a Cleanitol file included. You may also refer to it for manual deletion as well.
    Details
    These textures are broken into 8 DATs. The included resource guide offers more detailed explanations.
    DAT 1 - Ortho: Combines a ton of new pieces with the original Ortho set. Deals mostly with orthogonal parking and associated transitions.
    DAT 2 - Islands, Paths & Curbs: Combines the original set of Islands & Curbs with Paths (excluding markings). Adds many brand new curb pieces and transitions from various different parking types.
    DAT 3 - Diagonals: Combines the original set of Diagonal with new ones. Adds islands, offset diagonals and more orthogonal transitions.
    DAT 4 - Markings: Contains road marking goodness! Highlights include more block-end stop markings, pathing, and an entire section of UK-specific ones. Also comes with a way to transform standard parking spaces into "boxed" ones.
    DAT 5  - D-Types: Contains significant support of the original SHK diagonal-oriented spaces. Includes a full complement of transitions, curbs and some bonus special pieces including handicapped spots and an alternate style.
    DAT 6 - Combo Pieces: Adds an enhanced set of standard parking and curb textures with sidewalks and grass.
    DAT 7 - Miscellaneous: Includes some additional pieces that didn't quite belong elsewhere like parking-to-path transitions and S-curves.
    DAT 8 - Alternate Style: Adds an alternate orthogonal parking style in two colors.
    For Lotters
    Included is a resource guide containing a general breakdown of the set as well as a sample lot (found in the parks menu) and layout examples. There are also PIM-X groups included, for better organization and some time saving while digging through this massive set!
    Install Instructions
    Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. These should show up under the overlay texture section in the lot editor and PIM-X. 

    Lotters, copy the contents of PIMXGroups.txt into your groups.ini file located in the PIM-X install directory.
    Dependencies
    None. This set will serve as a future dependency for my lots. While it is technically a standalone texture pack, SHK Parking Pack is very, very highly recommended to take full advantage.
    Credit to shokthrpy for the original set, which served as the template for me. It wouldn’t have been possible to create this without it! Additional thanks goes out to rsc204 & rivit for granting me tools to refine this development process, nos.17, Belfastsocrates, MushyMushy, T Wrecks for various texture tweaks and suggestions, and everyone that left a like/commented on any of my parking posts!
    Enjoy!

  22. KOSC presents: SuperSHK Parking Textures Vol. 1
    Introduction
    THIS PACKAGE IS NOW OBSOLETE. GO HERE:
     
    After weeks of experimentation, I am proud to bring you my first texture set as part of my Superparking project. Originally conceived as a simple modular parking set, it evolved into an extension of the base SHK Parking Pack, and quickly turned into its own beast. Now this agglomeration of random parking lot ideas is finally a reality.
    Overview

    This set contains 352 new overlay textures for building and customizing your parking lots to your heart’s content. Many of these ideas were from parking lot layouts utilized by many business parks around North America, such as Denver's Tech Center and Silicon Valley. Note that this set avoids the full-parking-block-on-one-tile option – I’m referring to the single tile textures with back-to-back parking spaces, which has long been a part of SC4 (it shipped with the game!). Unfortunately, most of these are completely unrealistic, since vehicles have either one car length or less to back out on, not to mention the one-car width paths. Ultimately this set is geared for lotting more realistic style of parking, which are largely influenced by our resident nos.17.
    These textures are broken into 4 components, each with separate DATs. The contents are as follows:
    Pack 1: SHK+ Plus Orthogonals
    An extension of the original parking textures (quite literally). Spaces are approximately 20% longer so that the car props now stay within the spaces rather than jut out past – credit goes to MushyMushy for this one. Unfortunately with this change, these overlays aren’t quite compatible with the original SHK end island props, but that’s actually remedied somewhat here as well. This pack also introduces brand new transition pieces which are offered in all 3 standard wealth options with both pavement as well as grass choices.
    Pack 2: Islands, Curbs & Paths
    A set of parking “islands” and curb pieces meant for general pathing. Curb pieces contain all 3 standard wealth grass and pavement options. Also introduces diagonal parking block “bisectors”, which is just a diagonal path that cuts through an orthogonal parking block.
    Pack 3: Junctions and Road Markings
    Contains basic junctions and road markings. Markings include solid median lines in yellow and white, as well as stop signs and zebra crossings. LHD is supported.
    Pack 4: Diagonals
    Contains a basic set of diagonal parking textures and necessary pieces to make fully standalone diagonal parking lots. Includes orthogonal transitions, end islands, and some pathing related pieces. This is the main highlight of this set, as diagonal parking has been a rather neglected component of SC4. Well, not anymore I say!
    Bonus: Lotting Examples
    There’s a small folder included called “Lotting Examples” that contains a few images of layout combinations that are now possible with this set. Hopefully lotters will find this useful .
    This set contains no actual lots -- those will come at a later time!
    Install Instructions
    Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. These should show up under the overlay texture section in the lot editor and PIM-X.
    Dependencies
    None. This set will serve as a future dependency for my lots. While it is technically a standalone texture pack, SHK Parking Pack is a requirement to take full advantage.

  24. 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!
