About This File

A map I made for myself because I couldn't find any that were over-the-top enough for me. Figured I would share. Loads of detail.

Build in a valley surrounded by massively (max height) steep cliffs.

Designed to be an optimal map for playing on with some awesome views, not so much with terrain realism in mind.

Perfect Dam spot built into map with the reservoir on the non-buildable part of the map to optimize space.

Separate small section of river that drains nasty water out so you don't have to blacken up the main river with pollution.

Great connections with ship route going straight through the map.

Lots of Resources close to water for easy shipment out of the city.

Extensive pre-built highway and railroad network.

Just about the entire map is flat build-able space, even up on the edges of huge cliffs. Just about any square with water and a highway would make a good starting location.

Amazing night time views when you have buildings up on the edges of cliffs. The cliff side roads snaking their way around the map look awesome lit up.

Should work with all versions of cities. Built with after dark patched version.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do 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 is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. 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

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

      Hello everyone,
      I just commented in this area because I first encounter a serious problem that needs to be taken into consideration quickly: Simptropolis bug and I find myself on accounts at other players.
      Tonight, I logged in to my Simtropolis account, I did what I had to do and I left on other websites. Back on Simtropolis, I found myself on the account of another player instead of mine (I will not mention his name here). At first I thought it was nothing serious and I updated the page and it was all good.
      Then, same story, but this time I arrive on the account of the Webmaster, and even while updating I was connected to his account and if I wish I can read all these messages, do all the actions I want (I read no message and I immediately stopped the connection from ST, believe it or not). I have now come to tell you about this problem, it needs to be resolved as soon as possible, I can not accept to be logged into an account of another player, I risk problems on my behalf, and it also means That other players may have the same problem as me and end up on my account unintentionally.
      This is a proof that I was on the wrong side tonight, without trickery:

      Index of Modding Tutorials & Information

      In an attempt to consolidate various tutorials & info on C:S modding, this topic will serve as an index.
      Basically, please post below links to anything aspiring modders may find useful!

      For example:
      Links to custom content related tutorials you've created in another topic (e.g. in this forum). Videos on YouTube, or similar video sites. Helpful links to online information / guides (e.g. Wiki articles, making best use of certain software features).  
      Note: If you wish to post a tutorial / share some personal advice, it's preferred to do so inside a new topic here in the modding forum. This way it keeps discussion contained inside individual topics, making each subject easier to follow, and allows the author to respond to comments.

      There are now 2 files in this package which I will refer to as the 'original' and the 'new' file(s). 
      The original file is still in the package.  It is a file that I re-edited and works as intended, a flat blank tile with unlimited simoleons, but after I heavily terra-formed the map and began building a city, I noticed some inconsistent behaviors of the simulation which may be the result of it being optimized as a 'trainer' with all buildings and ordinances available.
      The original file is intended for the purpose of introduction to the complete set of goodies in the SC3U game, and to make it easy to get started using all the features, especially for focus on creativity.  The original file does not have a coastline which is required for use of the desalinization water pump and for creating seaports.
      The new file (V2) is more for the gaming aspect, it is a fresh-started city without any of the goodies 'cheated' into the game.  It is also a 'trainer' in that it starts with 1,000,000,000 in funds, but you must 'earn' the rewards as you build and manage the city.  The new file is clear of any other modification which may interfere with the operation of the simulator so is a better example for those more interested in learning how to 'play' SC3U. 
      Note: Some rewards may not appear as they are triggered by reaching a certain amount of funds.   To enable all Rewards use Ctrl + Shift + Alt + C and type 'pay tribute to your king' in the cheat box.
      The new file includes a coastline on which the desalinization water pump will work and for creating functional seaports, includes a bit of vertical terraforming in one corner, but is otherwise flat and blank. 
      Thanks to @CorinaMarie for generating the new file which I then terra-formed, and which she then tweaked the extra funding into. 
      Thanks to @catty-cb for providing a directory of SimCity Knowledge Tree Cheats. 
      To install either or both city files in the gog.com distribution for Windows unzip and place the files(s) in '<drive>\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Cities\'.  This is where to navigate to in the game to load or save a city file. 
      Also included in the zipfile is a Windows icon which can be registered in the system as the icon for all '.sc3' city files.  The icon was extracted from the SC3U.EXE application.
      The last preview is of a 3rd city file I am working on without any cheats, mods, tricks, or extra funds, starting in pure SC3U vanilla mode.  The animation demonstrates how dynamic the dilapidation and abandonment can be, with the RCI demands jumping up and down rapidly.  If using 'swallow' speed, watch utilities as they can wear down very quickly.

      Well, this is really starting to cheese me off. I'm trying to cut this map in half because it's actually too big for the game (the game actually stops scrolling at around 128 and behaves like it's about to crash) and I actually like the flooded version, but this seems to be physically impossible:
      -If I edit the jpeg directly, no matter what settings I use, even if I save it as a different file type, artifacts obliterate the whole thing
      -Exporting a new jpeg via SC4M darkens it, making the terrain completely flat
      -If I try editing the RGB file, SC4M says the edited RGB file is not an RGB file at all
      -If I try using a differently sized config.bmp, it brings up a box; if I say Yes it distorts the terrain, if I say No SC4M hangs indefinitely (Why the Freya is that even an option then if it just completely fails to create the region? Just don't bring up that box, or bring up one that only has "OK" and have it resize automatically. What's the point of giving me a choice if one freezes the whole program?)
       
      Is there an alternative? Or will I have to import cities one by one using the Import City function?

      Hi all,
      Some new life on the sc3k forum reminds me of this question I have for years.
      Playing sc3k always made me end up building highrises on the map edges. Might there be an opportunity modding the game such that the maximum map size increases? Eg 4 fold or 9 fold. This would allow creating larger metropolises in sc3k.
