      An appeal for your support: Help us keep the STEX up and running   11/06/2015

      Hi Community, this is a public appeal for help to keep the STEX up and running! We currently need your help to offset some of our operational costs and upgrades! As you know, we've always relied on community donations to help keep the website running. And while all our admins and moderators volunteer their time to managing the site and community, we do have modest expenses that we need to cover each month which includes our server hosting fees, software and support licenses, etc. So lately, we've experienced a slump with donations and we're beginning to feel the pinch! We would really appreciate your support by way of a donation of any amount in order to keep the site up and running. Of course, as always, we'll send you a gift with a minimum donation as a Thank You. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me!  Sincerely; Dirktator & The Admins PS. Thank you to those who have stepped up and donated the last couple weeks -- we really appreciate it!

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.

Maybe it's because you do not have 3ds max
