We're getting close with our April goal - please help us over the final bump!
Your donations not only help keep the site up and running, but also allows us to expand some functionality and upgrade other features of the site periodically to stay current! We're looking for some community support to help us get a new Chat system (as you know our old Chat is no longer supported by IP.Board). A new system promises to give us many more options and all for fairly little cost, relatively speaking.
Please help us reach our April goal so we can keep bringing you site improvements as well!

A section of the Great Wall of China, freshly built during the Han dynasty (206 B.C. - 220 A.D.). This picture offers a glimpse into the past, as much of the wall has fallen into disrepair and the pagodas are long gone.
Also, these are all in game models. Models were imported into 3dsmax, rendered, and placed onto either overhanging lots (wall sections) or into an MMP (pagodas).
Pagodas can be downloaded here and Great Wall sections downloaded here (this is just one example of his work, there's plenty more.)
Advice | How to build a Chinese city
I've been playing SC4 for a very very like time, I got it for my 13th birthday, and I'm now 26!
99% of what I may is a hybrid between US And British styles, but I've never tried anything different. I've been looking at a lot of big Chinese cities and want to have a go.
I know my custom content will all need changing, but other than just changing the building style, what else can be done? Are there any CJs which follow a chinese style city?
I want to make a modern style city etc.
To all mods: Feel free to move this thread to another section or pin it if you think it's interesting.
Anyone who's interested in using street view and Google Earth might have figured out China is a tough location to find any information about. China doesn't allow to use any Google related programmes or tools and, therefore, Streetview and Bird's eye views or only rarely available.
However, China has their own software to discover their land:
Baidu search engine: Chinas most used search engine and comparable with Google. Can be used as a good ressource to fins information about any building as long as searching for them in Chinese.
Tencent Maps: Tencent maps offers basically the same as Google Maps. Political, physical maps and satelite shots of most parts of the country including Street View in all major and many minor cities. Also, it offers a large database of building names in Chinese plus their adresses making it easy to get more pictures of it when searching through Baidu.
Edushi: Edushi has a large library of cities available from bird's eye view. It also has acces to every building in the maps giving the name and the address making it easy to get further information. To acces the cities, the easiest way is to replace Anyang by any other city in China which offers that mode. If it doesn't. you will get a traffic map of the city. The cities available are:
Anyang, Baotou, Beijing, Changchun, Changsha, Chaozhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian, Danyang, Fushun, Fuyang, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Guilin, Hangzhou, Hefei, Huizhou, Jiaxing, Jinan, Jingzhou, Jinhua, Jining, Jiujiang, Lijiang, Linfen, Lishui, Liuzhou, Nanchang, Nanchong, Nanjing, Nantong, Ningbo, Putian, Puyang, Qingdao, Qinhuangdao, Quanzhou, Rizhao, Shanghai, Shaoxing, Shenzhen (insert sz), Shijiazhuang, Suzhou, Taixing, Taizhou (Jiangsu), Tianjin, Weihai, Wuhan, Wuhu, Xian, Xiamen, Xinxiang, Yangzhou, Yinchuan, Yingkou, Yiwu, Zhengzhou, Zhuji, Zibo.
Just some hot tips in case any of you batters are planning to dedicate yourself to Chinese architecture. Those are my main sources. It needs some time to get used to it but it's definitely worth it. Have fun discovering China lol
I would like to know what "evidence" they have, but that's probably not going to be revealed for a while, if ever.
Super pretty, can't wait to add these to my farming towns.
Can you recommend / link to any specific content, when you say "These lots look best when used in conjunction with other rural SC4 resources (like farm fields, orchards, etc)"?
It's been years since I made this, I don't even have SimCity 4 installed and I didn't play it for a long time.
Try to install the latest NAM version, if not, try some of the older versions, maybe new versions don't have that trick anymore.
I hope it works for you
