      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts! Hardware Upgrades 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

Problem with downloaded buildings

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am having trouble downloading several files from Simtropolis, although I have followed all the steps in the Youtube video for Mac users (showing how to install downloaded buildings). So far, I've been able to download a swimming pool pack, the McDonald's download and the Talbot Speedway, but many files (tropical fire station, Paris fire station, Hooters, Madison high school) cannot be found anywhere in the game, even if they are in the MyDocuments/SimCity4/Plugins folder.

Note that I use FileJuicer and follow the steps in the Youtube video.

Someone help please?

Thanks

Could you show us an image of the files that you get once you run them through file juicer, maybe file juicer is causing some problems.

If you send me the links via PM, I could extract the files and send them to you. I play SimCity 4 on a Power Mac G5, but I also have the PC edition, as I use an even older computer to extract .exe files. You will usually find these kinds of lots in the Landmark or Park menus.
