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!
Updates in progress... Please stand by... 01/22/2016We're still in the middle of updating things, please bear with us! Some things may appear strange or not quite working right - we're working on it!

Lots by Edvarz: development and support
Hello, people of Simtropolis, this is my humble attempt at adding some custom content to my favorite game.
I installed the Lot Editor a while ago to fix some old LBT (Latin american BAT team) lots that had things that I didn't like, and to try to make my own lots when they weren't to my liking, but also because I wanted to create a mexican-themed city; I even tried to recreate Mexico City (at least the famous parts) to some degree, seeing as how there are a lot of buildings from there for SC4. Since I like to actually run the cities that I create, I wanted my lots to be functional and thus learned how to mod. From what I've seen, those old LBT lots were horribly modded (they never grew on my cities, all were stage 1!!) I've also come across four big packs of models that were never released in any lot whatsoever.
So, since I know the basics and I've already put some effort on my lots, it would be a good idea to go all the way and show them to the community, to get feedback and ultimately, to upload them and contribute to this great game. There are a lot of models to make a lot of lots (lol)...
My current projects:
Essentials by Edvarz (Unreleased) The Lat Am Project
Wall to wall pack (completed) Apartment complexes pack 1: medium wealth (unreleased) Apartment complexes pack 2: low wealth (unreleased) Historic pack 1: commercials and civics (unreleased) Historic pack 2: residentials (unreleased) Offices pack (unreleased) Services pack (unreleased) Suburban pack (unreleased) Historic pack add-on (unreleased) Suburban pack add-on (unreleased) LBT Remastered
Heblem's Retail stores Pack 1 (unreleased) Heblem's Retail stores Pack 2: Mexican Retail stores (unreleased) Hospitals pack Gold (unreleased) Police Stations Pack (unreleased) Hotels pack 1 (unreleased) Hotels pack 2 (unreleased) Mexico City Skyscrapers Mega Pack (unreleased) Future projects
Versatile filler pack Retail stores filler pack Latin american reward replacements! Latin american plazas
So here´s a small preview:
First, some colonial lots from Debussyman, some of these are bulidings found in Mexico City's historical centre, they are suitable for any such districts found in many Latinamerican cities.
Then some small colonial and XIX century style houses, also from Debussyman, lots 1, 2 and 4 use prop families to show different buildings every time they grow or are plopped.
These are some more colonial buildings made by Tcxalapa from the LBT; the models for these are not here, but in the spanish language site Capital SimCity.
Some suburban modern houses and a mansion found in the unreleased pack.
Some more suburban houses found in another house pack from around 2007
And last but not least, some wall-to-wall, modern, never released (Edit: now finally released! see table of contents) apartments.
So what do you think? there are still many models to be put in nice lots, from all the styles and all the packs, and with different progress In them. I haven't made any low-wealth lots, and there are also two commercial model packs that I haven't put into any lot, I haven't even installed one of them!. As I said, it's a pretty ambitious thing to do, but If I'm going to do it, I might as well not rush and make a worthy addition to SC4.
Just a quick (probably easy) question.
So, I've always loved Sim City 4 (I play the deluxe edition) and I especially love the fun that modding brings to the game. I frequently find myself browsing user made content on sc4devotion.com and of course simtropolis.com. I have also always wanted to create a couple for myself and the rest of the community to enjoy. So the question is, where do I start? Where do I start when it comes to making a mod, ect, ect? Much appreciated, thanks!!
hi peoples can u help me how do i made commercial lots for simcity 4?
hi peoples can u help me how do i made commercial lots for simcity 4
or how to change from residential lots to commercial lots?
i am new here from one year to present
How do I make a 1x1 lot that is bigger then 1 tile?
I've downloaded lots that only took 1 tile to plop but were much bigger then that. Like the newer statue of liberty on the stex. I was wondering how to do this?
How to search for content?
I'm trying to download some R$$ AND CO$$, i know they are in ST Exchange -> Building Bats. But when i go into building bats, it contains all the buildings from R$ to R$$$, C$ to CO$$$, low dense to high dense. so if i want the page show only CO$$, what should i do? if i just put CO$$ into the search bar, the page always shows "it cannot find such content".....
