      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do 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 is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. 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

      Chat is back...   06/22/2017

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

  1. This is a radical modd, in that it makes some really noticeable (& beneficial-I hope) changes to the appearance and functionality of some "Data views" and the underground tools in the game. To use this modd, simply extract the archive to your "\program files\maxis\simcity 4\plugins" folder. There is a "ReadMe" file included with the modd which explains better some of the details regarding this modd.

  2. This plugin file adds four additional terrain tools to ‘God Mode’.  To use these tools, simply extract the archive to your '...My Documents\SimCity4\Plugins' folder. Then enter a new city and terraform away.

  9. This is the download for the first version of dotdat dat file manager/maker/editor. To quote buggi on the use, No tinkering! Its only for people who actually know the file structure well and can run things accurately. For those with a more intimate knowledge of the maxis filestructures give it a try :)

  10. Buggi: This is a TOTAL CONVERSION mod, completely re-writing an exisiting ordinance (because ordinances cannot be ADDED yet). It takes the Carpool incentive ordinance (which had absolutly NO effect on your city) and converts it to the aforementioned modd.

    This modd is a DAT plugin, so just put it in your plugin's folder, no mess, no fuss, and it's free! LOL

  16. This is a radical type mod which changes the percentage stage caps for Commercial services and Commercial offices to allow you to play Single cities much easier instead of having to use region play.

    Warning!: As a radical type mod, be warned you will need to restore your dat if you don't like the results to be able to play your game normally. This is not a cheat code, its a game mod.

  17. Fixes the gripes people have about needing multiple large airports in their cities by changing the capacity to 360,000.

    Warning: this is a SEMI-realistic patch. Realistic because it eliminates possible need of multiple airports, but VERY unrealistic in capacity for an airport so incredibly small (those airports are about the size of a landing strip)

  18. Use at your own risk! EA never intended to have parks so powerful that pollution at a radius of 40 tiles are totally clear (air,water,garbage). Also included with this radical super park modd is a small plaza that has a landmark/park effect equivalent of 256 landmarks stacked together.
    DO NOT download if you are into realism. Originally used for testing. No not cheating.

  21. This mod set contains the following

    R$ Stages Mod : Lowers the R$ Stage caps so that they occur at much lower populations with stage 8 starting around 1000

    Pedriana HT Cheat Mod : Causes pedrianna perpetuator systems to have about 50000 jobs

    Warning: IF you are a realism freak like me do NOT use these mods . You will have to restore your Simcity_1.dat file to turn them off since they are not a true cheatcode.

  22. The first set of mods contains the following: commuteSpeeds, totalCommute, ClinicCapacity, DiseaseCenterCapacity,HospitalCapacity, ElementarySchoolCapacity modifications. Visit the forums for questions or for more information.
    Warning: This patch is not particularily realistic. Capacities will increase with no effect on cost. It mearly solves problems users have been having such as commute time, and strikes in large cities and the Disease Center limit
