The land of Technology
On February 4, 1991, the US State of Minderia was granted independence after a referendum on the issue the previous year. Located on a giant island west of Los Angeles, it shares a water border with the United States, and its capital is Minderia City, which was only founded in 1977. This SimCity 4 YouTube City Journal is meant to follow the growth of the seven major cities of Minderia. In the end, (sometime in 2020) we will have a city journal finally worthy of being on the City Journal section of this site (which is probably when ST 10.0 will be released)
Without further ado, here's Part 1 of the series!
Here's a rundown on what has been done in this video. In the first entry to this series, we make the interchange of Highway MA4 and MA7 on the South Split as well as build up a retail park, which will be moved further down south because it doesn't exactly look realistic where it sits now. Other than that, I forgot the skyscraper re-lots from KOSC, yeah. Gonna half to download those before the next episode.
So I was recently looking at some Japan driving videos and got inspired to make some highway pillars.
I'm planning to make an entire set of various types of pillars in this style, even a 6cell over-canal pillar. (if it goes okay)
Tell me what you think about my first attempt, I need to nail the style and the details before I start making other variations.
Constructive criticism welcome, also any ideas.
By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings? I should just make it just the pillar, without the small details - pipe, wires, supports.
Not sure when they're going to be done and available.
I installed NAM version 35 a couple of days ago, and works flawlessly, with little to no problems. However, it seems to be doing something with my roundabouts: the avenue, one-way, and regular road roundabouts seem to completely disappear, and I usually have to bulldoze the whole thing and attempt to rebuild it, with rudimentary results. This is a serious concern for me, as some of my cities are saturated with roundabouts.
I've included a photo below for reference.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Hello, I'm unsure of where to post this, so I'll try here. I made a region using.png height map and a config (proportions are correct (64xregionsize+1)) but my region isn't rendering. I created a new folder in the SimCity 4 regions folder. I put in the config and the .png when I went to the region, I pressed Contr+Alt+Shift+R, like you would, then I navigated the menu and attempted to load the png, from there the dialogue closed and it left me with an empty region, with no signs of anything happening. I've used downloaded regions before without any real issue, but now I'm not even getting the 'rendering' pop up, what's going on?
Sparkle is going to Mars!
In this video city journal of SimCity 4's SimMars Mod, we will build up Sparkle's Mars Colony of Raccoon City, as we begin to build up the major infrastructure of the city. Can this Mars Colony survive the harsh environment to come, or will it all fall apart? We also have to take into account that the SimMars mod likes to crash and corrupt its plugins, so we also have to survive the SimCity 4 Mod equivalent of Windows Vista. Will we survive the glitchiness?
Without further ado, onto episode one!
As well as some pictures of Fox Hollow, the southeast side of Raccoon City. Also, I have yet to get the UI disabler mod, so prepare for some UI elements that slipped through.
The Fox Hollow Prepatory Academy. This is Fox Hollow's most prestigious school, and has the second highest graduation rate of any school in Fox Hollow, only being beat out by Foxie Central High School's 97%.
The Raccoon City Museum of History. Located just northwest of Speedway 465, this museum showcases all the geo-political history of Raccoon City. Silly me forgot to take the picture without the tooltip in it.
Near the greenhouses, you will find the local farmer's market. The perfect place to pick up the best pretzels this side of Raccoon City. This place also has some retail, so shop around, I'm sure you'll find something. (Quick note: There's a video game store that has copies of SimCity 4 that'll work on Steam AND Origin. They're pretty rare, so good luck finding them.)
