About This File

Though you wouldn't normally notice it but at least the Maxis monorail models have some UV map (= texture positioning) problems.
Just take a look at the orange rings in the picture to see what this actually means:
Monorail-UV-Map-Fix-Preview.jpg.7ae680a2

This wouldn't be a problem for the average user but since I plan to create some monorail liveries that depend upon a good UV map I had to fix this before I upload any more stuff regarding the default monorail and its skins.

Because the UV map depends upon the actual 3D model, this will conflict with any monorail model-related mods. The single DAT file contains just the S3D files for the engine and the passenger part though, so texture mods are fine (which is the actual purpose).

So, if you enjoy a clean texture positioning, you downloaded some of my work for the monorail liveries (like my first monorail color pack) or just noticed this and you want it to stop, I recommend you to download this.

      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.

      so I've been waiting for sub buildings to become native so I could finally finish off Flinders Street Station (from Melbourne) here's a quick WIP look - probably will release sometime soonish - maybe next week.

      Let me know what you guys think!

      Hi Simtropolians,
       
      I'm building my home town, Berlin, with the help of your many mods and assets (I am using 70+ mods and 600+ assets). I started playing Cities:Skylines about 2 months ago and I'm enthused by the activity happening here and in the Steam Workshop. Thank you guys! 
       
      I'm endeavoring to add some of my own custom assets to the Workshop, but I'm new to the entire process. I'm good at photoshop, but I suck at Blender! I booted blender for the first time last week, so I'm at the rough end of a steep learning curve. You guys have been very helpful to get me over a few stumbling points. Now I'm getting ready to publish a couple of items and I'd like to run them by you first. I'm trying to start simple, but even simple objectives seem to morph into week-long efforts. Please let me know how my work can be improved.
       
      I've got a Checkpoint Charlie cooking (check my screenshot stream on steam or on twitter, if you're interested), but let's start with the Rosinenbomber from the Deutsches Technikmuseum:

       
      I found a DC-3 model by Giovanni E and lifted it to the top of the stock library with some prop anarchy:

      I was happy to find a DC-3, but the model has some texture problems (the illumination map is always fully on) because it's an old model and was probably made before After Dark. In wanting to fix the lighting problem, I wound up re-texturing the entire model to specifically be the famous Berlin C-47 "Rosinenbomber," as well as adding some propellers.

      It's starting to look decent in-game, but I still have some shadowing issues that I'm working on around the windows.

      I'd like to improve the body texture so that it looks more silvery and less white in the sun (I'm using PhotoReal3 LUT and Daylight Classic mods).

      Here are my current diffuse and spec maps:

       
      How would I go about improving the look of the body surface? I'd like it to be more shiny and silvery.
       
      My next question is, what is a good approach to make the LOD model?
       
      Thx for looking & thx in advance for your suggestions.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to suggest a idea. Why we don't add SimCity 3000 section on Omnibus? It's useful for players, especially new players. It's for filling the Cori's SimCity 3000 Forum section gap.
      Thanks.
      Zaydan Edit: The 'typo' is correct. Latest is correct alternative to 'most recent', while lastest is typo. Based on (not-clickable) best Cori's suggestion.

      These are TRAIN MODS made by Dearnen that have been in the MODD forums for a long time. The downloads have stopped working on some of the links so I emailed Dearnen and got his permission to put them up here so everyone could enjoy them. With this set you get Two Short Line Roads. New England Central and Genesee & Wyoming. Short Line railroads for those of you who don't know are SMALL rail companies that serve usually lesser traveled tracks to pick up/deliver freight to larger railroads. There are 4 locomotives in all, 2 replace the original game locomotive (YOU CAN ONLY USE ONE OF THESE AT A TIME) and then there are 2 extras that will show up at random (USE AS MANY AS YOU WANT). Read the README that comes with the download for more information. Place the files of your choice in: ProgramFiles/Maxis/SimCity4/Plugins THANK YOU Dearnen for allowing me to post these great locomotives!
