About This File

This Mod is now updated for Version 10.0.

 

My first mod adds some much needed trending information to SimCity. Originally this mod was titled GlobalMarket.zip, I have renamed to Trend Pack, since that is more appropriate for the direction I am heading with this.

 

Global Market (Online Mode Only):

The first trend that is made available is the Global Market trend (previously only available from Main Menu).  The Challenges button (top right) will now open the SimCityWorldPanel, instead of the original Challenges panel.  The button icon has been updated to a world icon.

 

History Panel (Online & Offline Modes):

The other trends that are now available are accessible from the Leaderboards button (top right).  This button will now open a new HistoryPanel.  The button icon has been updated to be a trend icon.  These trends show data points only for the currently active session, and the data stored locally.  This data is stored to your local machine so if you switch to a different machine the past data points will not be displayed. Data points are collected every Sim hour (at 15m past the hour) and stored for one Sim year.  So far the following trends are available:

- Population, Commuters, Visitors

- Budget, Mayor Rating, Zones, Government, Destruction

- Power, Water, Sewage

- Garbage, Fire, Health, Crime, Education

- Bus, Street Car, Rail, Boat, Air

- Mining, Metal, Oil, Electronics, Trade

- Casino, Stadiums, Cultural

 

 

I do not currently have plans to add any more trends at this time.  Please post in the comments if there is any specific trend data that you would like to see.

 

The package contains modifications to:

- SimCityUI_min.js

- GlobalUI2.js

- SimCityWorldPanel.js

- GlobalMarketLiveTab.js

- icn-rollover-icons-challenges.png

- icn-rollover-icons-challenges-on.png

- icn-rollover-icons-leaderboard-norm.png

- icn-rollover-icons-leaderboard-on.png

 

To install this mod, unpack the zip file into your SimCityData folder. This mod was made using Oppie's SimCityPak tool.

Please be sure to delete any older versions of the GlobalMarket.package.  The new package name is jTrendPak.package.

 

Warning:

As I have been adding more trends I have started to notice an increase in the amount of time it take to load a city.  Before trends I have seen ~30s load times, now I am seeing ~1m.  I plan to look into the issue, but in the meantime, if you are concerned with city loading time please don't install this mod.

 

(Update 3/23/14):

I have been doing some further investigation into the city load times and can't tie the increase in time to this mod directly.  It seems that the load times are more a function of city age and number of agents present.  If anyone notices any significant increase in load times due to this mod please post in the comments.

 

(Update 4/4/14):

I am currently aware of an issue with the localstorage functionality implemented in the last version.  This occurs when the data being stored exceeded the maximum quota size (~5mb).  Once the quota is exceeded history data will no longer be stored, but is still viewable for the currently active sesssion.  I am in the process of testing an update that would reduce the data size being stored and limit the maximum number of cities to prevent overfilling the quota.  I will release the update as soon as testing is complete.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

      Hey Simtropolis! So, my Electronics city, my FIRST Electronics city, is in a huge deficit. My Electronics city was fine until I destroyed all my processor factories and imported them instead. I have at least 10 computer factories now and they sap out the processors super fast. Now I put a trade port with all 6 storage lots importing processors. After a few game hours I was shocked from how 12 million simoleons fell below 1 million simoleons. Please help me!

      Here's some pictures of Corona, my first Electronics city. (Sorry the quality is bad, when I take screenshots it doesn't show the UI and yes, I already unchecked the Hide UI in the Settings.)

      Brilliant mod! 10% Confucius, 90% confused.

      A must for a midwestern city, this little gem seems to embody the understated balance which is found on some of their old buildings, and is surely able to express it to the benefit of surrounding environment - utilitarian and simple yet subtly graceful, can easily complement, and fit into, many contexts, lending it's humble contribution to their enrichment.

      This is a good demonstration of how the SC4 map renderer can be used to design maps that reflect a symbol or an idea, or just a 'perfect' world optimized for the game and its functions, especially networking and placing of objects.   I've used this method myself to make pictures of a dove, a donut, and even used a script font on my Earth maps.    For the above male and female symbols I see a use for my continuing ferry experiments and access of cruise and shipping connections to other tiles in the region.   The idea for the ferries is to see if I can get all traffic using ferries --with no bridges.   So thanks for these examples.

      I really like the idea, but the water texture is a bit disappointing.
  • Recent STEX Comments

    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
    • I love, love, LOVE seeing Louisiana BATS in the game. Hope you'll come back soon and upload some more.
    • Because theres no SimCity 3000 section
    • Well, yes ... but also ... ... a map. Depends on the network layout? But no - these are two different maps. That's like two different planets. They'll have to dance alone. Did you ever notice there is a sexual practice - since the beginning - that transcends already gender difference - a very common sexual practice you can't call it rather heterosexual  nor homosexual? You can do it too. Everyday. And so - overcome sociocultural dichotomy not only in theory but with your own hands.
