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.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts! Hardware Upgrades 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

      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.)

    • I know it's sized 2x1, but what kind of residential do I need to zone for this to grow? Light, medium, or high density? Or does it not matter? Anyone who can answer I appreciate it.
    • Love your work, but since a handful of files now from different users require offsite files that link to dead links I wish it was a rule here that all dependencies should be on site somehow. Thanks for the reup of the files...
    • I'm still working on the Maxis Vanilla tilesets presentation, but yeah its endless how many amazing artists have contributed to the SC4 repository over the past 14 years.  The problem with the tilesets and with RCI is that there's too much repetition.   I'm going to use for the first time a Maxis blocker that will eliminate all vanilla repetition and reveal whatever user created programming defines.  However, my project is not specific to agriculture.   We'll get back to that later.
    • @RandyE Thanks! I grabbed that one too. I'm not ready yet to kill them all, but I do want other stage 3 farm buildings to compete with Pedriana. Ideally I'd like to find a few more. In the meantime I'm now on a downloading frenzy getting all of @dk1's stuff. Their simple elegance (and the convenience of no dependencies) makes them ideal for mixing in with my otherwise nearly plain vanilla Maxis content.
    • @CorinaMarie It works for me !!
