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.

      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!
