Custom tools, modifications and enhancements for SimCity 4

695 Files

  1. The Network Addon Mod (NAM) combines all transportation network-related fixes, additions and new creations that have been released so far. It will add countless new features to the existing network tools, such as new overpasses, highway onramps, intersections, ped-malls, a ground light rail network, roundabouts and turning lanes.
    This is the Windows version of the Network Addon Mod, featuring an installer.  A Mac version is available here.
    NOTE: Due to some technical issues, the file is not directly hosted on the Simtropolis server.  The download button presently will take you to an off-site, registration-free mirror at ModDB, which can also be accessed here.  We hope to have the file available directly through the STEX again shortly, and apologize for any temporary inconvenience.

    Installing over previous versions: NAM 35 should be installed directly over top of any previous NAM releases, to ensure that your previous installation options are retained.  A clean install is not recommended.  For more information, see here.

    Tech Support: Since NAM 35 is now the most recent release, technical support for NAM 34 and earlier is no longer available.

    Special Thanks: The NAM Team would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the members of the community for their continued support over the past 12 1/2 years the mod has existed.

  2. This is the Windows installer. The Mac OSX Version is a little to buggy for release right now, so you can run this in WINE or download this in a NAM package with a wineskin wrapper at http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=17344.msg505849#msg505849 Version 2.1.1 is coming soon and will include newly PIM-X'ed buildings, better installers for both Windows and Mac, and other little changes/bug fixes.
    There is a lot of myths about CAM out there. For a beautifully written article about what CAM is really about, see the blog by Tarkus here The CAM (Colossus Addon Mod) – Separating Fact From Fiction. This article also give a great idea on some great starter buildings.
    NOTE: If you have merged your SimCity_1.dat file with the original CAM 1.0 file, restore your original SimCity_1.dat file before running this installer.
    Welcome to the Colossus Addon Mod (CAM). CAM changes the way cities and regions develop. This is possible through the use of Growth Stages(Read in Basics of the Manual). This causes the game to progress from small stores, single houses and farms/small factories to Commercial Office towers, Residential High Rises and Large industrial factories less rapidly and much more realistically.
    The altered growth also allows the player better control their cities through the use of zoning density. If the player wanted a nice rural town, zone only light density, with some medium in larger areas. On the other side, the skyscrapers and other large buildings become more balanced and possible with very developed regions. Use of high density zoning will allow these to grow when ready.
    As with any new software or mod, be sure to read the Readme’s and this guide before installing or using the mod. Page 4 of the manual contains the specifics of installation. The manuals can be downloaded or read in both English and Japenese here, http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=17318.0
    Description of new Styles
    Install Types:
    •        IR Fix Only – Will only Patch the SimCity_1.dat file. This will cause IR to be included in the totals for industry for regular SimCity 4. It will also allow normal industrial connections to work for IR. All other install types include this already. Original SimCity 4 files are backed up in the folder \Documents\SimCity 4\Original SimCity Files\
    •        Extended (InvisiChem) – This is CAM 2.1.0 Standard with extended stage ranges for larger regions. The growth I feel is more balanced and lifelike.
    •        Standard – Just like CAM 1.0 stages, just the curves have been smoothed out and the range slightly extended.
    •        Rural – Stages are set for smaller, rural style growth. Stage 15 can happen, it just will be in very large regions and very infrequently.
    •        Midrise – Stages are set to place an emphasis on growing midrise stages. This is similar to the way European cities grow.
    •        Skyscraper – Stages have been set to allow Skyscrapers to grow quickly, even in one city regions.
     
     
    All stage settings, except for the Extended version, are the values that were originally developed by RippleJet. All the new CAM 2.1.0 fixes have been included in all versions. The only difference between types is the stages for specific play style.
    Feel free to add comments here, the CAM General discussions board at SC4Devotion, or if you start a thread here at Simtropolis, let me know so I can be as helpful as possible. Feel free to discuss any myths about this mod that have circulated in the past. I will be more than happy to share what this mod is truly about, including how it helps regional play.
    Cheers everyone, 
    InvisiChem.

  3. What does this do
    Resolves a crash-to-desktop when hovering NAM puzzle pieces over transit-enabled lots. Allows other DLLs to load into SC4's memory without a GZCOM framework. Requirements
    This fix is made for versions 640 and 641 of SimCity 4 on Windows. Version 640 is a fully-patched SC4 retail copy, and version 641 is a fully-patched digital distribution version (i.e. Steam, Origin, GOG). Although v641 is supported, it has only been tested on Steam so far. If your version of SC4 is unsupported, an error message will appear with update instructions, and no changes will be made to your game.
    Installation
    Simply unzip the DLL in your My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.
    To see if SC4Fix is working properly, check the title of your game window. If you are playing in fullscreen mode, alt-tab out and hover over the SimCity taskbar icon. The titlebar will show "SC4Fix (version #)" if loaded properly.
    Demonstration
    Click here for a video showing the ability to hover puzzle pieces over transit-enabled lots with this DLL.

  4. The SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin

    Overview:

    The SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin was originally an internal SimCity 4 file, used by Maxis during the development phase to test the game before its release to the public. However, in the years following the release of the game, Buggi, a prominent modder resident here at Simtropolis, contacted Maxis and was given permission to release this file to the public.

    The extra cheats plugin adds many additional features to the game, such as the ability to plop any building or lot at will, the ability to easily set how much money is in your city's treasury and even the ability to add snow to your terrains, as well as many other additional functions.

    However, it should be kept in mind that this file was originally never intended to be released to the public. It was built for testing purposes only. As a result, it should be treated with caution. Using this file incorrectly can lead to game instability and even crashes. No guarantees or comprehensive user guides can be provided with this file, if you choose to use it, you must do so at your own risk.

    How to use this file in the game:

    After you install (see below), enter a city and press the key combination [CTRL] + [x] to open the cheat box. Right click anywhere within the cheat box, you will see a drop down list appear. You can now select a cheat from the list by clicking on it. After you have selected a cheat, press enter to confirm your selection.

    Below is a list of all known cheat codes enabled by this file (as well as the standard game cheats) and a description of their effects. As the effects of some cheats are unknown, not all cheats have available descriptions.


    UPDATE:
    To fill in some unknowns Maxis has given me the details on a few of the missing descriptions.
     
    Barstuck - Once invoked, all of your small commercial services (low-density 1x3 lots) start turning into coffee bars, and then they stay that way forever.   WatchMeMove - Enables animation stepping. After it is enabled, control-shift-alt-F11 and control-shift-alt-P implement animation stepping and pausing, respectively.   GP <on | off> - Enables or disables game pause when you switch to another application. This is useful for if you go away from the game and you want it to sleep while it is in the background.    Flora (on | off) | (preserve on | off) | (propogation on | off) | (blast <splat_count> <per_splat_count> <splat radius>)   Controls flora simulation parameters. By default, during city play flora simulation is on, preservation is off, and propogation is off. Preservation refers to the keeping of trees on land when the land is developed. Propogation refers to the spreading of seeds and automatic creation of new flora life in the city.   Example(s) Flora on Flora preserve off Flora propogation on Flora blast 5 8 60  
    Installation Instructions:

    Extract the file SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin.dll to the root directory of your plugins folder. This means put the file in C:\...\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. DO NOT put the file into a sub-folder, it will only work if placed into the main directory. Then enter your game and follow the instructions above.

    Tip for Damn Manager users:
    For every object you will safe in your plugin the Damn Manager will make a DAMN_Root.dat.
     You also need to remove the Damn_roots for the item you have safed of the previous MMP of my packs.
    Refresh the Damn Menu items because your new MMP's have new corrected range.

  7. This modd alters the look of both Day (slightly) and Night (in far more drastic fashion)view of the game.

    Days gain richer more natural looking shadows, greater overall contrast and better interaction of terrain and various models (in terms of shading).

    Nights are now much darker and less blue/purple. Yet unlike in some other similar modds they aren't completely black-hole, pitch black. The city, vegetation and terrain are all still visible in the night, albeit just so.

    Installation is very simple just unzip the content of the archive into your Pluging folder and start the game.

    Special Note on truNite buildings.

    This modd is tailor made to work with DarKNite TruNite buildings. Normal truNite ones will look overly bright and blue. So look for special DarkNite releases!

    Have FUN! Questions and suggestions for a time being may be addressed to BAT4Max thread

  8. Welcome back for more MMP's!
    Its time to introduce a wider variety of sand colors and textures therefore I bring you SM2 Sands.
    8 new colors and textures in 2 sizes. Large and small.
    As a bonus I have included a twigs,tiny rocks and branches MMP which I named SM2 Beach Clutter.
    Also as an extra bonus I made a nifty little wrecked boat that can be used either above or under water.
    For a grand total of 18 separate MMPs!
    All models are in HD, they are slope conforming and will also plop underwater.
    (When plopping MMPs under water you may not see it plop immediately, if thats the case, please zoom out then in or rotate view and the MMPs will appear correctly)
    Make sandy paths, beach scenes, mountain scene, lakes scene, construction scenes etc.
    Making a coal mine lot? No problem! You now have black sand which can simulate coal bits and dust! Your imagination is your limit.
    You will find them all under your Mayor menu.
    No dependencies!
    Have fun and post some pics for everyone to see.

  9. Intro
    The SAM (Street Addon Mod - NAM) is one of those indispensable mods, adding a wealth of variety to street networks. But SAM 6 however was a little too bright for my tastes, so I've darkened it to reduce it's visual impact. This is one of those little things I often tinker with, I figured some others may find a use for it too.

    On the way I've added optional support for the following:
    Full EU Textures. Additional crossing support for both PEG205 and RealRailway (RRW) crossings. Modified many avenue and rail pieces to add grass to better blend in with your game. Install
    First, note if you are updating from v1 of this mod, you need to remove that manually. Find the folder z____MGB Darkened SAM-6 Mod (assuming you used the default setup) and simply remove it.
    Run the included .exe Installer, built with NSIS. It will allow you to choose from a number of options and then install the files you need, simples!
    If you don't like installers or are a Mac/Linux user, the option is there to open the archive with 7zip or similar. However it may be tricky to find the right options, not a lot I can do about that sorry.

    By default this mod will install to the directory z____MGB Mods/Q - SAM6 Darkened. I highly recommend you DO NOT change this. It's been smartly designed to integrate with many other mods if left alone.
    Users of the RRW Reskin will want to manually delete the rail textures after install file (SAM 6 Darkened Rail - RRW.dat) or overwrite it with the equivalent from RUM for RRW. (note this is not yet in place at the time of writing).
    Please read the included readme, as always it contains important information. As for all my mod, after installation, you can find it in:
    My Documents\SimCity 4\LEX_Downloads\MGB Mods
    This is to avoid clutter in your plugins folder
    Dependencies
    Network Addon Mod (NAM) with the Street Addon Mod (SAM), specifically SAM 6 selected.

  10. Description
    This plugin will allow you to place PedMalls with lanterns (works with all 5 paved PedMall types that come with the NAM). There’s no specific pattern, you will be able to control where lanterns will be placed: There’s a rarely used feature within T21 files where you can make props depend on the orientation of a certain network. This might not make sense for most networks, however, it seems useful for pedestrian malls, and in this plugin, this is being used this way: If the PedMall puzzle piece faces north (or west), a lantern will appear when plopping the PedMall tile, if it faces east (or south), there won’t be a lantern. Please note that I’ve made two versions of this plugin – one with lanterns from rich residential areas, and one with lampposts from mid-wealth commercial areas.
    Please refer to the readme for further information, especially on how to install it.
    Available languages: This plugin doesn't change or add any language-sensitive content; the readmes, however, are available in English and German.

  11. This is a collection of 5 different rock mods in HD resolution (1024x1024) to be used with any HD terrain mod (e.g. Pyrenean & Appalachian Terrain Mods). They can be used with standard definition terrain mods as well, but any tiling will be more visible.

    Note - In order to utilize hd textures you must be rendering in hardware mode, otherwise you may experience a crash to desktop.

    Installation
    Unzip to your plugins folder and choose only one of the 5 files, store the others in a safe place. To avoid conflicts ensure you have no other rock mods installed.
    Dependencies
    None

    Credits
    All textures by shokthrpy.

    Support
    If you encounter any problems please visit my BAT thread at (Mod Edit: Link removed, SimPeg is no longer there )... for support, please ask in the SC4 Bugs and Technical Issues thread, where someone should be able to help you.

  13. These Business Deals have been modified from the originals and appear in the reward menu at the start of the game.  The negative mayor rating effect has been reversed to a positive effect, the amount of income increased and positive landmark and park effects and jobs added.  The impacts of pollution and radiation have been radically reduced or completely removed.   These rewards may now be used safely to add income to your budget.  Each deal/reward has a color-coded menu icon and is separate from the original which will still appear as usual according to the game.
    Eco-Friendly Toxic Waste Dump
    Business deal income: 450. Very minimal pollution, no radiation.  Slight landmark and park effect.  Creates same job demand as Advanced Research Center.  Water consumed: 200.  Mayor rating effect based on Mayor's Statue.
    Humanitarian Army Base
    Business deal income: 850.  Slight pollution, no radiation.  Moderate landmark and park effect.   Same job demand as for Army Base.  Power and water consumed: 200. Mayor rating effect based on Mayor's Statue. 
    Particle Testing Range
    Business deal income: 650. Minimal pollution, very slight radiation. Slight landmark and park effect.  No missile launches. Creates same job demand as Advanced Research Center.  Power consumed: 100.   Mayor rating effect based on Mayor's Statue.
    Social Rehabilitation Center
    Business deal income: 950,  Slight pollution, no radiation.  Moderate landmark and park effect. Same job demand as for the Prison deal.  Power and water consumed: 200.  Mayor rating effect based on Mayor's Statue.

  14. I couldn't find the dark Italian cypresses like seen what is seen in some of the custom lots in order to plant cypress forests or for parks. So I just decided to make an MMP Italian Cypress (Mediterranean Cypress) extracted from the BSC Mega Props Vol02. I personally prefer the darker color of this cypress in this resource pack since it's a little darker and more realistic in appearance. Simply drag to your plugins folder in your sim city folder contained in your PC's documents folder. Enjoy credit goes to BSC for yet another great model set.

  15. Veredas Santiaguinas
    A sidewalk mod made by matias93
    Este mismo texto está en español adentro del archivo!
    AKNOWLEGDEMENTS:
    This mod couldn't be possible without the impressing work of Rivit and MGB204 (rsc204), creators of GoFSH and the (not yet published) Automated Sidewalk Mod. To make a mod as big as this by hand, as many other creators had done before, is a titanical task that deserves sheer aknowlegdement; I just created a couple of textures and clicked buttons once and then.
    DESCRIPTION:
    This textures are inspired in the 'veredas' or sidewalks that were built around 1980 in Santiago, Chile: they are little concrete tiles with geometrical designs, that form big square shapes using black or red tiles. In the game, I chose to keep an uniform colour, trying to avoid the sudden colour changes that make Maxis' textures so unappealing; instead, only coloured tiles change with wealth level, as the general condition of the sidewalk: ochre tiles with clean and orange-y concrete in high wealth sidewalks, red burgundy squares and grey concrete in mid-wealth textures, and blackish borders with stained concrete in the low-wealth sidewalk.
    Thanks to MGB204's scripts, this mod can change all textures that correspond originally to Maxis' white tiles: sidewalks on all streets, roads and avenues (including RHW intersections), crossings with all other networks, pedmalls, plazas and residential, commercial, industrial and services' lots; it is even compatible with the new additions on NAM 34. An important exception are GLR (tramway) tracks, that get sorrounded by the new texture but not completely replaced. Depending on the existence of more advanced scripts, this could change in a newer version.
    INSTRUCTIONS: <-- Jump here if you don't like the details
    This mod has to be installed MANUALLY. Is not enough to copy and paste everything: you'll end with a cluttered folder and surely your prefered networks will be oddly patched.
    Copy the folder called z___veredasstgo to your Plugins folder (the one that is on My Documents/Documents/). It is preferable that you delete all other sidewalk mods, but the folder is named in a way that will load it the last, overwriting other conflictive textures. Open the folder you just copied and delete the files you won't use:
    a. "Veredas Stgo BASE" chenges most street, road and avenue sidewalks, so you should keep it.
    b. "Veredas Stgo sitios y plazas (LOTS)" change the lots' textures, allowing a more uniform result. You should keep it; delete it only if you prefer to use another texture on lots and plazas.
    c. "Veredas Stgo NAM" folders will only work if you had installed the Network Addon Mod (very recommended); YOU MUST KEEP ONLY ONE FOLDER. Choose the one that corresponds to the driving side your game uses (LHD: on the left as in the United Kingdom, RHD: on the right as in Europe), and to the roads' lines colour (US: yellow lines as in the United States, EU: white lines as in Europe). Open the folder you had kept: there you'll find one or two more folders with options:
    a. Open the folder called "Rail Options" and delete the files that doesn't match the kind of rail tracks you use: Maxis, PEG or RealRailway (RRW).
    There shall to be just two files, with the same ending.
    b. Only if you have installed EU white lines with the NAM, open "TuLEP Options" folder and delete all the files that doesn't match to the TuLEP textures you installed with the NAM. Most surely you are using Maxis default ones, but make sure it is that way.
    There shall to be just two files, with the same name after the "TuLEP". Close the folder "z___veredasstgo". If you use DATpacker or other program that packs your plugins, get sure not to pack this folder, unless you are certain no other mod could overwrite this textures. DEPENDENCIES:
    This mod replaces textures without using any dependency. You can extract the textures to use it as dependencies for other creations, but they aren't currently in the right format to do so.
    COMPATIBILITY:
    This mod cannot be used with any other sidewalk mod, unless you combine it deleting parts of each one; if you know how to do that, you aren't surely reading this instructions.
    This mod also don't work with plugins that change some textures that seems non-modified after using. I'm refering particularly to MGB204's Super Light Asphalt AddOns; it changes the GLR textures already modified by this mod, and depending on the loading order, it could result on this mod overwriting MGB's one completely, or his mod changing GLR side textures to ML's Super Light Asphalt, which is lighter and non tiled.
    Anyway, is your option to test with this, but you are warned.
    LICENSE:
    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 tile texture made by Patrick Hoesly, a dirt texture by dfass12 and a grass one that is on the public domain.

  16. SC4DataNode - A Simcity4 Exemplary
    - is intended as a Gold Standard SC4 Audit Tool
    - is NOT an Editing Tool - for this there are Reader, SC4Tool, Lot Editor and a number of others.

    The program supports four main Tasks
    1. Audit/Review of Loading Sequence, file redundancies and Overrides
    2. Dependency verification (as many as possible)
    3. Audit/Review of
    a. SC4 file integrity (.dat etc) and
    b. TGI file content integrity (Exemplars etc) to the Property Level
    4. Exploration - a really good informative display of Exemplar Property Values and file contents so that one can learn something of how SC4 works.

    Tasks 1 and 3a focus on the physical SC4File View
    Tasks 2,3b and 4 mostly on the TGIFile view (SC4 Content)
    These tasks can focus on the whole SC4 Environment or incidentally scanned files/folders (or both)

    Potential Audiences are:
    - The User who wants to make sure that some new plugins aren't broken
    - The User who wants to make sure the game loads plugins in the right order
    - The Modder who wants to learn what/how things work
    - The Modder who publishes work and wants to make sure its correct, and will work correctly with a given environment
    - The SysAdmin who wants to make sure their site is only hosting quality products
    - Potentially programmers to make use of the functionality (of the SC4DataNode.dll)

    How it works:
    SC4DataNode loads all of the files that Simcity would load, in the order it would load them when starting a game. It then marks all files that are redundant, checks the contents for accuracy, finds the interdependencies and marks them as found or not and offers a number of views of the resultant data. This can also be carried out for any given set of files.

    Use the included installer (program can be installed anywhere) and you're on your way

    The program is written in VB.NET v2.0 and should run on any machine that can run the .NET 2.0 Framework or an equivalent.
    It also installs one very clear to read Font. Full Documentation is accessible from within the program. (Docs Button)

  17. Larger Cul-de-sac Mod

    I've re-uploaded this mod after a request to do SAM streets. In addition to that I've also edited the regular street cul-de-sacs to have smoother transitions and blend in with other streets better. Mainly the NAM cosmetic mod.

    Description-
    This mod changes the NAM street roundabouts into large cul-de-sac's for suburban areas of cities.

    Installation-
    1: Unzip the folder and then run the installer.

    2: SAM cul-de-sacs install to your SimCity 4\Plugins\Network Addon Mod\Street Addon Mod\Textures folder.
    3: I've recently come to notice that people are having problems with this mod and the current NAM release. This is due to some file re-arrangement. 
    You need to install them to something other than the default folder the installer installs it to, and label it so that it loads after the nam. For example I have it installed to "mydocuments\SimCity 4\Plugins\z____cul-de-sac mod" so re-name this mod's folder to "z____cul-de-sac mod" and it should work!
    The 4 spaces after the z force it to load last and after the NAM. (I'm working on re-uploading the mod to fix this issue because the installers directory is currently wrong) 
    ^I will update this file when I have time, for now you must follow these instructions ^

    Dependencies-
    NAM is required.

    Pictures-
    -

    Credits-
    SAM textures edited and installer made by Bryan1998
    Thanks to Metalpuritan and Magneto for finding solutions to compatibility problems, and thanks to Spinmaster for the request.

  18. About this Upload
    This Text Loading Mod replaces Maxis' text that appears as a city tile loads.
    The mod is made of quotes about cities that express both positive and negative views on city life to reflect your tyrannical or merciful governing style as mayor. In some cases, quotes were shortened to clarify and aid in-game readability. Other quotes reference specific cities to inspire you!
    Some quotes are longer, you may have to read fast! All display properly with my screen resolution of 1366 x 768.
    Versions are available in English, Spanish and French! Thanks to matias93 for the Spanish translation!
    Watch the text to find shout-outs I included to Craig-Abcvs and airman15 to thank them for their own Text Loading Mods that I enjoyed!
    About the Files
    Simply choose which language you wish to use and put that file in your Plugins Folder. Use only one at a time!
    A readme file includes a document with all the text and to whom the quote is attributed. See Craig-Abcvs's Text Loading Mod if you wish to modify these quotes or to create your own Text Loading Mod.
    No Dependencies.

  19. NOTE: Due to some technical issues, the file is not directly hosted on the Simtropolis server.  The download button presently will take you to an off-site, registration-free mirror at ModDB, which can also be accessed here.  We hope to have the file available directly through the STEX again shortly, and apologize for any temporary inconvenience.
    The Network Addon Mod (NAM) combines all transportation network-related fixes, additions and new creations that have been released so far. It will add countless new features to the existing network tools, such as new overpasses, highway onramps, intersections, ped-malls, a ground light rail network, roundabouts and turning lanes.
     
    INSTALLATION
    This is the Mac version of the NAM.  For the Windows version, see here.
    NOTE: In order to install this mod, you will need to have an archiving utility capable of opening .7z files (Keka is one free option).
    To install NAM 35, unzip the file "NetworkAddonMod35_macOS.7z". Inside it, you will find the file "NetworkAddonMod35_macOS.app". This app file is a Wineskin over the Windows installer, allowing it to run on a Mac. Run it as normal, selecting "Yes" when asked about porting to a Mac. It will install to Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/Network Addon Mod and Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/z___NAM.
    Note that the Controller Compiler cannot be called from the installer on a Mac, so the full NAM Controller will be installed. The Controller Compiler can be run manually by going to Documents/SimCity 4/NAM Auxiliary Files/Tools/Controller Compiler, and running the file NAMControllerCompiler.jar.
    DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, UNINSTALL YOUR PREVIOUS NAM VERSION if you are an existing NAM user. The NAM installer can detect your previous installation options by reading the folder, and as such, it is safe (and recommended) to install NAM 35 on top of your old version. If you remove the previous install, however, you may not remember exactly which options you had selected, which could potentially cause issues in your cities.
    The Aspyr re-release is known to have a quirk in which the number of files (not their size) contained in the Plugins folder can cause crashes to desktop. This issue is inexplicably triggered with a much lower number of files if the user is running the game while not connected to the internet. To avoid these crashes, we recommend that the user use a tool like the cross-platform JDatPacker in order to combine the NAM files.
    REQUIREMENTS
    While the Windows version requires the EP 1 Update 1 patch (Version 1.1.638), Aspyr has never released a comparable patch for the Mac version. An additional file has been included to compensate for the lack of the transit pathing fixes included in EA/Maxis' official patch for the Windows version, and no other patches are required.
    Tech Support: Since NAM 35 is now the most recent release, technical support for NAM 34 and earlier is no longer available.

    Special Thanks: The NAM Team would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the members of the community for their continued support over the past 12 1/2 years the mod has existed.

  20. Do you use the Maxis Highway Override Mod which came with the NAM a few versions ago, otherwise known as Project Symphony? Are you also using the Overpass mod from the Japanese NAM Facelift Mod? If so, you'll want this compatibility patch which updates all the models to cross MHO.
    Note:
    An earlier version of this file was previously included with my MHO Patch Mod, which is now obsolete.
    Please update your NAM version to 35 or later which includes all the other fixes and much more besides. If you previously used the MHO Patch Mod, you should remove it's installation folder/contents entirely.
    I.e. the folder "M - MHO Patch" inside the "z____MGB Mods" folder.
    Dependencies
    SC4 with NAM (version 35 or later highly recommended) and the Maxis Highway Override installed.
    The Alternate Overpasses mod from the Japanese NAM Facelift Mod (full details/links/tutorial can be found here).
    Installation / Load Order
    Load order for this mod may be a little tricky. The Jap NAM Facelift mod must load after "z___NAM" to work correctly. But this mod need to load both after that and also the Jap NAM Facelift mod.
    I've actually included with this mod a dedicated folder where you should move the Jap NAM FL mod, to ensure everything works. So when you extract the included .zip file, you get a folder "z____MGB Mods", including two subfolders "A - JapNAMFL" & "Z - Final Load". You should copy the extracted folder into the root of your plugins folder. If a prompt appears, click OK to Merge/Overwrite any files/folders. Then find the installation folder of the Jap NAM Facelift mod and place it inside the "z____MGB Mods\A - JapNAMFL" folder. This is the one and only supported setup. If you need to manage load order differently, that's totally fine, but I won't officially support this.

  21. Here I present my Sahara terrain mod. This mod (I personally think) is unfinished due to lack of work and textures, but I decided to upload it because I'm unsure If I'd ever complete it and I hope someone may make use of it.
    This mod replaces your terrain with soft sandy textures representing a vast dry desert, dunes poking out of the summer haze. 
    This mod has no dependencies, and contains 2 of my other mods, the Sphinx Rock Mod, and the White Gravel Beach Mod. These 2 dat. files are optional. All other files included in the download are required in order for the soft sand heated by endless summer suns to appear.

  22. This is a DLL for SimCity 4 that adds a few more cheat codes beyond Buggi's Extra Cheats DLL.
    SievertBeGone — removes all radiation from a city, including from buildings that produce radiation when plopped (such as the advanced research center). Chernobyl — irradiates an entire city hazmat — creates a toxic spill disaster on whatever tile the mouse is pointed at UncivilDisobedience — creates a riot disaster on whatever tile the mouse is pointed at. The mouse must be pointed at a road, street or avenue tile. The development thread can be found at this link. Source code can be found here. Make sure to follow this file in case more cheats are added!
    Installation
    Move to Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins.
    Compatibility
    Tested and working on 1.1.641.0 (Steam/GOG/Origin) on Windows. Also works in combination with SC4Fix and the Extra Cheats DLL. Untested but should work with any version of SimCity 4 Deluxe or SimCity 4 w/ Rush Hour.
    Mac and Linux users
    This mod is untested on Mac and Linux platforms but my understanding is that SimCity 4 for Mac and Linux is essentially a Wine wrapper. Compatibility is not guaranteed, but it's worth a shot. If you're playing on Aspyr's PowerPC version of SimCity 4 this mod will definitely not work, but if you're using that version of SC4 you probably have other issues to deal with.

  23. This mod replaces all of the maxis trees in-game, oaks, pines & palms. It makes your neighborhoods much more "full" as they should be in real life. And you no longer have to wait for saplings to grow over the years. A recommended mod is SFBTs' street tree mod (used in the pictures) or similar.
