      An appeal for your support: Help us keep the STEX up and running   11/06/2015

      Hi Community, this is a public appeal for help to keep the STEX up and running! We currently need your help to offset some of our operational costs and upgrades! As you know, we've always relied on community donations to help keep the website running. And while all our admins and moderators volunteer their time to managing the site and community, we do have modest expenses that we need to cover each month which includes our server hosting fees, software and support licenses, etc. So lately, we've experienced a slump with donations and we're beginning to feel the pinch! We would really appreciate your support by way of a donation of any amount in order to keep the site up and running. Of course, as always, we'll send you a gift with a minimum donation as a Thank You. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me!  Sincerely; Dirktator & The Admins PS. Thank you to those who have stepped up and donated the last couple weeks -- we really appreciate it!

  1. SuperSHK Parking Textures, Vol. 1

    KOSC presents: SuperSHK Parking Textures, Vol. 1
    Introduction

    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.
    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!

  3. Updated Asphalt Highway Textures

    This package contains a variety of updates for Throvin’s Asphalt Highway Texture mod which helps to make it more compatible with the NAM and other downloads lurking in your plugins folder.
    Since the mod’s release, various new pieces for the Maxis Highway (MHW) network have been added by the NAM team and do not contain an asphalt texture. They will remain concrete-based while the rest of the highway is asphalt-based.
    An alternative is to use Mandelsoft’s Highway Restyling (HRS) mod, but some still like the grey look of Thorvin’s textures on our highway network.

    The screenshots displayed show compatibility with various components
    -Screenshot 1: Pieces fully compatible and textured for the NAM
    -Screenshot 2: Textured base Maxis highway network pieces
    -Screenshot 3: Pieces fully compatible and but not properly textured for the NAM

    [b]Dependencies:[/b]
    This mod has only one dependency file, and that is the [b][url="http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/13705-asphalt-highway-texture/"]Asphalt Highway Texture[/url][/b] by Thorvin

    Credits:
    -Euro Highway Texture replacements by Thorvin
    -Highway Signs remover by Mandelsoft
    -On-Slope connection texture by OnlyPlace4
    -Diagonal ramp pieces by Warrior
    -Updated Asphalt Highway Textures by Samerton
    -Packaging and documentation by Haljackey

    If you have any questions regarding the mod, post below for support.

    Enjoy!

  4. T-RAM North American Texture Pack

    Note:  This pack is now included as an option in the base NAM 31 package.  You no longer need to download it separately and it is only on here for informational purposes.
     
    This is a transit texture pack for the Tram-Road Addon Mod (T-RAM) in the Network Addon Mod. I made it in the GIMP because I usually don't build cities that would have the European textures originally in the NAM. This pack replaces everything that needed replacing except tram-in-avenue, changing the single white line in the center of tram-on-road to double yellow ones. Tram-in-road has a single yellow line on each side of the tram lanes, and center lines have been removed from crosswalks entirely. The only dependency is the Network Addon Mod (NAM). To install this, put the .dat file into your Network Addon Mod\Plugins folder.

  7. Seamless Universal Background

    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!!

  8. Sithlrd SimpleTextures 1

    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!

  9. Food Modd Watercolor Mural background

    Food Modd - Watercolor Mural background

    Make your city look like it was painted on a mural! This background is very colorful and appears like it was painted  with, of course, watercolor.

    The files will replace your in-game backgrounds to this background. To install, unzip the files in C:/programfiles/maxis/simcity 4 deluxe/plugins
    when a message comes up about replacing files click "yes to all." Then load your game and see the backgrounds.

    I'd recommend you make a backup folder to put your current backgrounds in, in case you ever want to change it back.

  16. River n Hill brush 2

    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.
