I'm attempting to put it in my files right. I might need help.

OK, so I put all 3 in my data files, Is that all I need to do? And what is the "ESCAPE -> Enable Debug -> Right side of screen a column should appear, click 3rd last icon (grid looking icon named Region) -> Buttons 2,4,5 are ones with my changes" Where do I do that at? And where is the Debug menu at?

Oh, yay, I got it. SO fun. Thanks below

There should be 2 files (1 if you already have a mod enabling the debug menu) - SimrolledComplete.package and (If you don't have debug menu DL the bagoftrixs either of the first two links), and place those in your SimCityData folder. Then just start the game up, go to your city press escape and youll see the debug button

 

edit: Glad to hear it worked out. Updated the package with a little change so we don't need bagoftrixes anymore.

They are the other debug menus which had everything taken out in one of the patches.  Like the OP mentions, the relevant menu for this mod is the 3rd last (grid icon) - there are submenus there which correspond to the pictures in the OP's visual guide (This picture was updated for v0.2 so it may look a little diff if you are using the older version).

 

By the way I cannot stress enough how important is it for you to be trying these mods out in a new city before goin to one you work on. Just noticed that pic above - don't want you accidentally placing something thats indestructable (Ramp/Regional Freeway) without knowing about it before hand!

The only thing that bothers me, is the fact you can't cross the roads. I mean when there'a already a railway, you can't cross it with a road (says you can't cross it).

Hmm boroda, im not sure but that may be an issue with a bad download I had uploaded on v0.2 (IF you downloaded about 20mins before this message).

I just tested drawing outside the box, I did a railway first then a road over and it let me, then I did a road and railway'd over it fine. Unless I am misunderstanding your question I'd suggest a quick re-dl (I had messed up some road related changes when I was redoing my package which could have caused the issue)

This looks like an issue with a small part of railway between bridges, looks like nothing to do with actual mod.

Can't wait to try this out when I get home. This by far the biggest step forward in modding simcity 2013. Well done!

You may have experienced the issue I was having without BagOfTrixes runing. I added back the link to it  and updated a few cultural ploppables.

If agents can't go beyond the box, why plop a factory out there? It wouldn't get any employees right? How about goods? Would it produce anything?

 

I understand wanting to break out of the box, but functionality is key here.

 

Roads are another issue, I'm so fed up with the limited access to cities. The people who designed this game should really never work in the industry again.

They all work. Only thing that is not working is tourist locations accepting tourists (cultural), casinos and such work still.

 

It saddens me you'd question the mods worth rather than just trying it. Sorry I am working on something you don't deem useful nor understand its usefulness.

I am very happy for your mod - and if people read the text - and tried the mod also - they would post smarter comments :P

 

If I would wish for something, is if it would be possible to add the service and pedestrian roads to the debug road menu? Especially the service ones would be very useful :)

Actually, agents can and do go outside the box. They can pretty much go all over the region; the only thing that's constrained to the city box is the camera and maps (water, coal, height)

 

The people who designed this game should really never work in the industry again.

Oh, come off it. This kind of hyperbole is getting really tiring. I thought Simtropolis was better than this.

To be honest I am praying that they dont mess with anything but I doubt it'd break much. Im going to venture and guess they might cause some files to require some changes around but I doubt they'd do something drastic to break it off for good

For the record, the game is great as it is. Especially coming from my perspective, its just to god damn tinkerable with

 

- Sorry for the large amount of re-downloads for those that use it, v0.5 is out with I believe the last of the ploppables with modules

Hello,

 

First of all thank you for the great work your doing... keep going.

 

I have downloaded the SimROllerPackagev05.

I have place the SimRollerCompletePackv05.package file in the SimCityData folder and the SimCity-Scripts_257365692.package file in the EcoGame folder (note that I had already  a SimCity-Scripts_257365692.package which I replaced with the one provided in the SimRollerpackagev05).

 

After I do that I launch the game and hit the space bar... but nothing happens.

 

I've read something about the BagOfTrixFudged.package file which I've also downloaded and tried placing it either in the SimCityData or the EcoGame folder.... sadly none of this seems to have an effect and I still can't enable the debug mode.

 

I'm sure I'm missing something or doing something wrong but can't see what is. Some help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Launch the game - > go to your city -> Ingame press escape and hit the "Enable Debug Button"

 

edit: By the way sorry wasn't clear, the BagofTrix file should go in your SimCityData folder too (Same as the SimRollerCompletev0.5.package) - You were correct with the scripts package though, goes in the ecogame folder and replaces the original.

Heads up: The patch overwrote my scripts changes so you guys may experience an issue where modules are limited to half of what you should be buildable (ie 4 fire trucks but you will get capped at 2). I have updated the scripts package and I am going to run it for a bit to make sure everythings covered and I'll be updating the OP

Yeah was hoping any random server would turn on early so I could hop on and test the changes but guess we're all stuck waiting no matter the server :(

Hi,

 

Thank you. I've finally managed to get the debug menu although the menus are empty. I think the EA update has messed up some of your package so I guess I'll wait until everything is back to normal.

Hmmmmmm its been updated for the patch and working. Are you sure you placed the SimRollerComplete.package in simcitydata, the scripts pack in ecogame and ontop of all that - accessing the right menu? Not all the debug menus are used, only the Region (Grid Icon) menu has submenus that are populated.

    • Ionica - Summer in the City
      By MilitantRadical

      Welcome back to

      ionicabanner1year.jpg

      Well it has been a long time but I am finally ready to start making a return. I still have a lot of things to do before I get Ionica up an running again, but in the meantime I'll share a few new pictures from around the city and from one of the new Zones I've been working on for the past couple of months.

      Special thanks to KonstantinII who has been custom LOTing some BATs for me and sharing them with the rest of Simtropolis.

      Schulmanator: Awesome! An enjoyable tour though some well designed areas. I think a vacation there is in order this summer!

      Thanks. There is a place for you in Ionica anytime. Summer is especially beautiful here.

      ggamgus: Fantastic! :D Sorry about your PC being down... but this is great work, I love it. :D

      Thank you. Finally got it up an running a few months ago. Felt like it would never be fixed.

      KonstantinII: The whole overview is nice. Veritas is so huge I don't even have word to describe it! You provide a good living status for your people. The metropolitan area looks very realistic. Dubai is like nothing compared to this. I think the small houses in Hao Dantong somehow don't fit in with the rest of the city. You don't have to put a big university campus in a crowded city like Veritsas. I use the small buildings of hdorriker's university set. They are compact enough to blend in with the city and provide all it's education needs. Think of them as sub branches of the main university. http://community.sim...esidence-halls/ Most big cities don't have a sprawling university in the middle of the CBD. Just Saying.

      Thanks. I feel Veritas is kind of cluttered. I'm going to have to work on it a little. I want a big university, but you are right that it shouldn't go in Veritas. I have in mind something like Oxford/Harvard/Yale. Throw in some MIT as well.

      Huston: Beautiful montage of your city zones! :) And the photo-editing is great! You really don't make it obvious that your using the default building lots and you really seem to have talent for blending different styles as well which is just remarkable because not many people seem to do it effectively like you have! Again, amazing work.

      Glad you appreciate it Huston. It is all about being selective and picky.

      Titanicbuff: That city is HUGE

      But I'm not compensating for anything.

      RepublicMaster: I love the journey throughout all of Ionica! Your canals are one of the highlights! :D Keep up the great work!

      Thanks, I put a lot of time into those. Glad they stick out to you.

      dubaidude303: Totally stunning! Awesome work :)

      Thanks dude. (I always have to it that way)

      City Builder 9111: Wonderful to see all of it again! Long Live Ionica!

      Thanks for your blessing.

      Hazani Pratama: Great!

      Thanks.

      Terring: Fantastic work man :D

      Thank you.

      Harbin91: Hate to be an air traffic controller there.

      I imagine it could be quite a nightmare. Unless the air traffic is controlled by a super sophisticated AI, yeah - lets just say that is how it works.

      Forthwall: Gargantuan update, had to wait a bit, but it was worth it - 100%. Congrats on 1 year and lets hope for many more :D

      Glad you stuck with it to see it all. Yes, lets hope.

      Hellken: Well, what can I say? This is stunning and fantastic!

      Thank you very much.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • Ionica - Return to Pater
      By MilitantRadical

       

      AYlaJZ6.jpg

      Well it's been a while. Just a small update to get things rolling again.

      I've had a few set backs here and there. My CBD tile Avalon suffered an epic meltdown and it's going to take a while for me to rebuild it. However that gives me the opportunity to make it better than ever before since I'm not constricted by it's original design. I'm trying to make it similar to how it was before with certain key landmarks still in place so it retains that "Avalon look" but otherwise it's going to be a whole new beast.

      For those of you who have followed my CJ over the past couple years Pater and the Blitzball stadium will be quite familiar, I've just made a few changes here and there. I changed the sea walls so that they match some of the adjoining zones and I've also tweaked the parks to make them a bit more symmetrical and less cluttered. Check out my entry called Opening Night Blitz if you want to do a little Before and After comparison or if you are new to this CJ.

      I don't know if I'm worth of such high praise but thanks a lot.

      Lord Branham: I am honestly speechless. You have not created a city, but a masterpiece! Your use of buildings, parks, and water is unrivaled! I honestly cannot put in to words how marvelously you have done here. I look forward to your next creation, enjoy your break!

      Thanks Branham, it took a lot of work and I'm glad you appreciate it.

      jmsepe: How the hell do you always make that!!?? Everything is just so atmospherically pleasant! The harbor, the downtown, the roads, gosh I might end up writing an essay just to say how beautiful your city is.

      lol, thanks jmsepe.

      Benedict: Amazing scenes as always - and well done, you're back at number one this week on BTT.

      Belfastsocrates: Absolutely superb CJ! I adore the attention to detail and abundance of custom content and lots. It's incredibly attractive visually and a joy to read through. P.S. I'm also rather thankful I have a fast broadband connection lol :)

      Yeah high bandwidth is key. Unfortunately it is still unavailable in some areas (not mine). Thanks Belfastsocrates.

      KonstantinII: It just only that the city looks a bit unprotected against the sea. What if a tsunami came, and all the city will be ruined. Also it is sad to think of what could happen if someone dropped a bomb on it. It looks beautiful, but a little vulnerable.

      Don't worry, Ionica is well protected from the sea. There are many breakwaters, canals, and pipes that are designed to divert water in case of disasters. Ionica is also very well protected from military attacks. I plan on building some military bases in the future and we also have a tight satellite defense system with particle beam weapons that can take out any incoming enemy aircraft or missiles.

    • The frontiers of nature and the city
      By Terring

      I have noticed that many mayors build homes, shops and anything else in the outermost side of the most outermost roads of the city, forming a concrete wall that separates the nature from the city. I never liked that idea, because it makes the city looks more like a jail. This is why I always keep the outermost side of the outermost road free from any kind of constructions, with only some MMP made parks and picnic fields here and there, in order to build a "bridge" between the city and the environment. Want to explore the local forest or swim to the local lake? It's just one step away.

    • Project Orion - 3k Extended Boundary
      By Yayie

      For Offline use only.

      How to Install

      • Download files
      • Once download is complete, extract rar files. (right click > extract)
      • Simply copy and paste OFFLINE-ONLY_Project_Orion_3k_Extended_Boundary.package in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityData
      • Start SimCity > Play new map > Choose city tile > Save > Quit SimCity (not work if exit to Main Menu)
      • Re-Start SimCity > Resume Game
      • Wonders :bunny:

      Must have Mods for Orion

      Issues that have been plagued players since the game's release is now answered. Some says it is the holy grail of all mods. Some says this mod + buy game/reinstall. That's right, 3k extended border aka "bigger city".
       


       

      Understanding the mechanics of Orion 3k Extended Boundary.

      1. Upon entering 3k extended map. based on (Image #1), The 3k map extended on North and East. Use right click mouse button or middle mouse button to bring up the compass.

      2. Regional Roads are needed to draw them outside 2k map. Such as Project Akar : UI Enhancements, that offers almost every roads available to be drawn outside 2k.

      3. Regarding Land Value, please refer the image below. There a lot of misunderstanding as well as misconceptions about the land value data, that was viewed in the map data.

      • The Actual Land Value EFFECTS are still intact as they are. It does not resized regardless in or outside 2k. Believe it or not. It still the same. There are claims that users may have experiences getting different wealth RCI in certain unwanted areas. These confusions is only because  we can't determine the actual "spot" of land value throughout 3k extended border, and the data from the Land Value map seems false but not entirely false information. It was compressed 4:1
      • This also applied on Pollutions, Ground Pollutions, Futurizations etc.

      4. Regarding Resources. Unlike Land Value/Pollutions etc That was compressed 4:1. All Resources are stretched 1:4, see Image #3 and #4 to get better understanding on them.

      • This 1:4 stretched map data also effects oil, water, coal and ore.

       

      Lag and memory issues

      Its common knowledge that lags or frame-rate drops are known for almost every game that pushes its limits unless the users has a high-end computers. It covers almost every aspect from 3D rendering, physics (engine), memory calculations that the game generates etc. Orion (3k Extended boundary) does not lag the game itself, only that the additional space it provides for users to built in and as the city developed and getting dense - it'll stress your computer hardware.

      We cant blame the game for the lags, it just happen that once we push the game to its limit, we might as well be done with better hardware.

      The Game's Limitations

      1. All trees outside the default border cant be remove, because there is no tree, its a facade. Only way to remove them is to edit the region map files.

      2. The game already provide its regional transit, from air to land and water. We can't add Maglevs/Subways/EL and Streetcars to work between two different city vice versa. Please "make do" with the given features of each city tiles carefully.

      3. There's a limit count of how many roads/buildings that can be drawn/build per city tile

      • Roads : 1024
      • RCI : 2048
      • Base Buildings : 4096 (not yet confirmed)

      Special Thanks to SkyeStormes for a video review

      Special thanks to Asilksworld for a video review. :thumb:

      Special thanks to chappers for his city design with Orion. Outstanding vision, plans and layout created alongside with Orion has proven that modders are able to create new possibilities to SimCity community. Thumbs up. :thumb:

      - Yayie

      I would like to thank /u/Desarth from Reddit for the use of his images in showcasing Extended Boundary. Its a wonderful testament to what can be done with effort and creativity with various tools. I thank him personally for allowing me to use his images with this mod. :thumb:
