About This File

Jan Mayen is a volcanic island in the Arctic Ocean and a part of the Kingdom of Norway. It is 55 km (34 mi) long (southwest-northeast) and 373 km2(144 sq mi) in area, partly covered by glaciers (an area of 114.2 km (71.0 mi) around the Beerenberg volcano). It has two parts: larger northeast Nord-Jan and smaller Sør-Jan, linked by a 2.5 km (1.6 mi) wide isthmus. It lies 600 km (370 mi) northeast of Iceland (495 km (305 mi) NE of Kolbeinsey), 500 km (310 mi) east of central Greenland and 1,000 km (620 mi) west of the North Cape, Norway. The island is mountainous, the highest summit being the Beerenberg volcano in the north. The isthmus is the location of the two largest lakes of the island, Sørlaguna (South Lagoon), and Nordlaguna (North Lagoon). A third lake is called Ullerenglaguna (Ullereng Lagoon). Jan Mayen was formed by the Jan Mayen hotspotAlthough administered separately, Svalbard and Jan Mayen are collectively assigned the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code "SJ". - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Mayen

I worked a lot on this map. It contains oil, forestry, minerals, and animals. The theme is Winter. It is very smooth and ideal for building. Recommended for players who want more challenge, as it is very difficult to strategically figure out how to maximize efficiency in this map. Have fun.

      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.

      Are there any games where you can be an totalitarian dictator? And Controlling everything and everyone?  Yes i know Tropico is such an game, but you are only an dictator of a small Island, not really a powerful ruler. Are there any games besides the tropico series where you can be an cruel dictator? Any games where you can rule over more than just a tiny Island as a dictator?

      Hey everyone!

      Just wondering what all people like to see in their favorite maps.
    • By Mr_Maison
      Thought we can use a list of the most accessible 3D software and resources for our modding and custom content needs. If anyone knows any more resources feel free to share here. I will start with this short list.
       
      3D Software:
      Blender 3D- for everyone.
      http://www.blender.org/
      Blender training course http://gryllus.net/Blender/3D.html
       
      Sketchup Make- for everyone
      http://www.sketchup.com/download/all
       
      Sculptris- for everyone
      http://pixologic.com/sculptris/
       
      If you are a student, teacher or mentor, this is an opportunity to use Maya free of charge for 3 years. Who knows what will happen in that time the way CG software is being "freed" nowadays.
      http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/maya
       
      I believe there's more but can't think of them right now.
       
      Texture Resources: I chose the texture sites that have more architecture content as we will be using these types of textures for buildings.

      Nobiax on deviantart (textures including normal and specular maps, some 3d models)
      AGF81 on deviantart (textures, some normal and specular maps)         Thanks Avanya. Decided to add your list in the first post for better exposure.
       
      Tools:
       
      Autodesk FBX Converter. This can convert various 3D formats to ASCII and Binary FBX. Also convert from either type of FBX file to the other.
      http://www.autodesk.com/products/fbx/overview
       
      Cities Skylines Tools. This is a Sketchup plugin that exports your model straight to the import folder from Sketchup. No more needing to export to another 3D program. It also comes with customizable grid options for both ground and height.

      Cleanup, another good Sketchup tool
      https://extensions.sketchup.com/en/content/cleanup%C2%B3     Thanks Darf!
      GIMP is a free alternative to Photoshop
      http://www.gimp.org/
       
      Krita is a cool digital paint program also
      https://krita.org/
       
      NVidia Texture Tools for Photo Shop for normal maps, texture compression, mip map generation and cube map formatting.
      https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop   Thanks Darf!
       
      Thought I would also include Unity since it's the engine of this game. I don't know how it would be useful or if it would give any advantage as I never got into it yet. But I imagine it would shed some light into why some things in the game are the way they are.

      04_Earth_769x513_2x3_Continents.bmp
      05_Earth_769x513_2x3_Relief.bmp
      All files listed above and below are in the same sequence as the previews.
      Folder: Regions
      Earth Signature 1x1
      Earth Hemispheres 1x2
      Earth Squared 2x2
      Earth Continents 2x3
      Earth Relief 2x3
      The following text is contained in the zipfile in readme.txt and HTML.
      INSTALL the REGIONS Folder:  SC4M Earth 2x3 Relief
      I have included an .SC4M map of the '05_Earth_769x513_2x3_Relief' map in a new folder.  To load the map in SC4 Mapper, click on 'Create Region' and select 'Grayscale'.  SC4 Mapper creates the city files and a config.bmp file by default, but not a region.ini file.  A region.ini file is included in the folder which may be cut and pasted into the Region folder SC4 Mapper creates.  Included above are 2 new previews (to the right) showing an image from SC4 Mapper, and the rendered map in 'SC4 Region View.'

      FOR ALL OTHER MAPS using the SC4 in-game Map Renderer
      From the unzipped 'Regions' folder select any or all of the sub folders, cut and paste into your user  '/Documents/ SimCity 4/Regions' folder.   Each of the Regions will then appear in your 'Region' menu in the game with the same name as the folder.  Each folder contains a region.ini file and a config.bmp file, defining the name and layout of the region.
      The 'Earth Signature' region is a 1x1 large city tile, containing only one large blank terra-formed tile.  This folder also contains 1 city file (662k) named 'City - New City.sc4'.  This region does not have to be rendered and may be viewed and used immediately in the game.  The city has not been 'Start'ed so is still named 'City - New City.sc4'.  
      All other region folders only contain the region.ini and config.bmp files, the maps must be rendered in SC4 region view using the included grayscale heightmaps in .bmp (256 indexed grayscale 8-bit) format.
      The grayscale heightmaps in this package were hand designed for use with the SC4 in-game map renderer using a popular color relief map.  If you use SC4 Mapper or Terraformer, smoother surfaces and smaller file sizes may be achieved, but elevation interpretation is different, generally the water level is one increment shallower, some land area may go under.
      Instructions for rendering the maps with SC4 can be found at the bottom of this page.
        SCALING in SC4 3D SPACE:  The maps are not proportionally scaled either horizontally or vertically, they only represent a general idea of area and height.  
      Horizontally, the term 'tile' is used for both the grid of squares in the city view and the grid of cities in the region view.  One city view tile is 16m x16m, and one large city tile in region view is 4km x 4km.  
      Grid lines in city view may be toggled on/off by pressing the 'g' key.  Grid lines in region view may be switched on/off by checking/unchecking 'Show City Boundaries'.
      Vertically, buildings are scaled in (cubic) meters, but land area and elevations are more often very disproportional. In my 'Earth Relief' map one increment of land in region view is about equal to 1800m, so 5 increments from sea level is the highest point on Earth at near 9000m.   
      There are 62 (62 x 1800m) increments from the bottom of the sea in SC4 to the top of its 3D space, sea level cannot be raised or lowered from its 6 increment setting.  In terms of my 'Relief Map' then 6 x 1800m is the deepest surface below sea level at 10,800m, almost 11 kilometers.  Actual scientific measurements indicate about the same depth.
      Consistently, the top of SC4 space is (62 x 1800) 111,600m, about 112km above the solid surface of the Earth.   Objects below about 160km in orbit are considered to be below "Low Earth Orbit".  The International Space Station orbits at about 3 times the height of SC4 space in the same spherical area defined as the 'Thermosphere' of the Earth.
       INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:  1.) Launch SC4. In Region View use the Load Region scroll menu to locate and open the region you want. 
       2.) In Region View press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-R.  You should now have a window in the top-left corner.  
       3.) Navigate to the 'Earth Grayscale Heightmaps' subfolder in the unzipped 'SC4 Earth Maps 256 Grayscale' folder.
       4.) Scroll to the bitmap (.bmp) corresponding to the region you have selected and click 'Okay'.   (The exact file names of the region and map must match)
      The simulator should begin processing the map.  If successful, you will see the region with city layout.  The processing takes from a few minutes to several minutes to complete.

      5x5 is even more uncommon in my mind especially when it comes to custom content.

      As for the building they're amazing and some of your best work, and the fact they came out at the time CS was at its lowest point in the STEX I think these are a worthy addition.
    • By DavidDHetzel · Posted
      Neat idea, but man, this building didn't age well. :/

      Zero7 was a very underated BAT, his texture work here shows why he should be on the pantheon of amazing BATers.
    • By RandyE · Posted
      About 20 mins to render.  Lots of water tiles open for island building.  The beaches are smooth and waterfronts good for building large cities with ports.  The arrangement of tiles is not random but optimized for city organization.  The transitions in elevation follow natural contour lines.  The overall texture is smooth.    This is a good map for a long term project of building a large region of cities connected by sea, land and air.
