About This File

There has been much discussion on the changes that the new Sim City will introduce. Instead of speculating on these changes, imagine that this is the landform you've been assigned: Can you build the city of your dreams according to what we know about the new game?

This is a single city region; 2 X 2 km, the same size that SC5 cities will be. Too many terrain features (such as hills/mountains and water) might prevent you (or if this wasn't a simulation of the new rules: a future neighbour) from building a large downtown core, so this city had to be limited to a river and a bit of texture. Please don't give a low ranking just because it's too small, or too flat.

Here is the challenge. When you are in terraforming mode, at the start of the game, you can add trees...and that is it. Build your city in mayor mode using no terraforming tools, height-changing cheats, or land (terrain) development mods. SC5 will be the first Sim City Game without terrain changing tools (random generation or otherwise). If you want to limit yourself by not using farms or subways or other confirmed Sim City 5 omissions, then go ahead.

[s]This is a zipped file, so you'll have to unzip it before using[/s]. Otherwise you would follow the default method of adding a greyscale map to your game: Create a folder (using whatever name you wish) in your Documents/SimCity 4/Regions folder and insert the greyscale [s]bmp[/s] jpeg and config bmp into your new folder. After starting the game, load your new region and render it (press Ctrl + Shift + Alt + R; then find the greyscale image you just inserted, highlight it and press okay) and viola, region created.

*Update: It works and it always did. Once rendered, you have to hover over the city and click start a new city.

    • WAY too expensive.  Otherwise great.  
    • I'm finally getting back to this lot, and now starting to make at least 3 different variations taking from ideas presented here.  Not sure if the lot can be made 2x2 and still work as the same growable,  but if there's a tweak I need to make, please let me know as I would like to add some ground area to the lot. I don't have an SC4Desc file for it, but I'm now re-lotting this re-lot, so yes, some parking and a gas station added will go into 1 of a few new variations, Thanks for the input.   It will be a 2x2, if I can get 2x2 working the same as a growable.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to the more advanced content creators above for suggestions.   Whatever I come up with, as mentioned, I have to keep in mind how often this lot shows up and find a way to make that repetitiveness look good in-game --It does work as a blvd with the overdose of big trees, but that's all so far.
    • uggh, i'm confused. I installed this because I want a bus stop on road but I can't find the tile on the menu bar. Does it appear in form of ploppable "bus stop" (but can be done in top of road) or "road tiles with bus stop"?
    •       Looks very nice , but like said above "I don't rate content by pictures " and I too will get back after I get it in game . You have been giving us quality stuff and I thank you for your dedication to bring us new content . Keep up the good work .         I just noticed Trixie emoticons , it must be that time of year again .
