      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      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

[MOD Pack] Plop Outside City Box & All my others

824 posts in this topic

LOOKING FOR TESTERS
 

What I have done

I have increased all module limits (Except "Upgradable" buildings, and ones that make no sense to IE uni - might increase dorms tho, Trade Headquarters: Elec, Oil etc)
I have also increased the landmark count to 30. I have tested up to 6 and it seems to work for me.

What needs testing
ALSO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A NEW PLOP TO TEST MAXIMUMS. OLD PLOPS MAY NOT UPDATE

I need you guys to make a game, plop every ploppable you can and max out the modular limits and just play. Report back any roll backs. Also if anyone is willing to possibly sacrifice a non-sandbox city and test the same coniditions before in a non-sandbox game.

 

What do you do?
You can test this with my mod pack installed or without, but its better with as my mod pack allows you to place modules anywhere (plop points become "red" once u plop a certain amount due to too far from main)

Download this file, it is a scripts package so you place it in your SimCity\SimcityUserData\EcoGame\ folder
MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR OLD SCRIPTS PACKAGE IF YOU HAVE CUSTOM MODIFICATIONS TO IT,  IF NOT; TO GET A "FRESH" VERSION, DELETE THE SCRIPTS PACKAGE AND RECONNECT - MAXIS REDOWNLOADS IT AUTOMATICALLY

sry procs but what do you mean exaclty ?

im testing your latest find with vanilla install, wich means i deleted all the previous mods from the folder, saved them somewhere and just installed your script.

Is that what u want us to do for testing ?

 

and btw what is the landmark count ?

Uhm sorry i wasnt clear on that, but it actually doesn't matter on that part. You can have my mod installed OR have it not installed :) I'll clarify that up top.

Landmark count is you know how your cultural items are limited to 0/3? I upped that to 0/30

 

edit: further clarification: My mod just makes it so you can overplop easier as at some point plop points become hard to access naturally off buildings

i found a way for you to maybe split up your script modifications into separate packages.

 

I found that copying the latest version of "simcity-scripts_*.package" to the packages folder will allow for plops and such to be enabled.

 

doing this i got my bus street mod to actually be valid for plopping buildings along  and even zone

do you know any techniques in order to avoid glitches when you put down some extra highways around the city ?

 

ps : so far so good, got 1500 students in one school

You mean terrain related glitches? I try to draw them at short bits at a time (the roads that is), seems to prevent the dissapearing roads but still occurs somewhat around intersections/sand areas

yeah terrain related glitches, so frustrating.

The agent behaviour is still so bad, i have like 30 school buses and they keep following each others, same for garbage trucks

 

ps: apparently you can put down unlimited amount of school buses lol , currently 28 buses on one school, ahahaha

FOR EVERYONE TESTING THE SCRIPTS PACK ABOVE:

Do the following:
1. If you do hit a rollback, could you please delete your scripts package in the EcoGame folder, and let the client re-download a fresh copy.

2. Go back to your city, roll it back if you haven't already - load it up and do some changes and then ESCAPE > EXIT TO MAIN MENU > Reload City
3. It should save your changes, just repeat step 2 with a few plops and then let it run in the back for a bit, and then exit while in game and sync ESCAPE > QUIT SIMCITY > let it sync and close itself

--

4. Once you have done the above a few times or even once, you should be able to add back my scripts pack -> plop some extra modules -> exit to main menu -> quit -> go back to step 2 for "rescuing" your city from rollbacks

   4a. Alternatively, once you have restored my scripts and you try to load your city and receive "Unable to load your city" as a message, you can do the following:

     b. Navigate to "origingames\simcity\simcityuserdata\ecogame\", in here you will see folders named "s1xxxxxxx" - these are folders for your City.
     c. Looking at the "Date Modified" you can narrow it down to the city you last worked on (most recent), back up this folder somewhere and delete it
     d. Now load back SimCity with my scripts package and Go to start of Step 4.

--

 

In a city I was getting rollbacks with overloaded modules, I did the above and I can now more or less play it, am performing step 3 atm for the past 10ish minutes after doing a few new plops and saving. Prior to reverting to the original scripts I was getting a rollback a minute or two within loading the city. I also noticed even with the original scripts package if I did a change and did Escape > Quit SimCity and let it Sync that way it would say "Your city was not processing" when trying to sync before closing.

Hmm, it seems I can even continue to overplop my landmarks after deleting your script. I'm gonna try reloading your custom script to eco folder and see what happens

Link to post

It seems I can even quit through Escape > Quit Simcity > Letting it sync now too.

RE: Landmarks, yep thats because of the one off error on the way they count the limits. We are greater than 3 so they don't really check it if its past

As for terrain glitches. Yes, annoying.

 

If you play with SCTweak by trgs & pygma, then you can set the value to the "Elevated" preset and it'll draw all roads as slightly raised roadways. It helps a TOOOON (ton, not toon).

 

I usually change the first value under "custom" to around -1021 to almost at-grade additional highway roads.

 

Yes, its a tedious workaround, but i hate glitchy looking roads

Working very nicely. Trying it out I felt like i was watching Oprah, you get a garbage truck and you get a garbage truck. 

Now if only SCTweak would work outside the border so I could take my subways there I'd be happy for a while.

Its definitely hundred percent more friendly in sandbox as you can just lay the $%&^! out of everything, play till you hit a rollback then proceed to do the steps above to attempt to "rescue" your city which works pretty well.

I just went in and deleted all package files and all game folders. Went to origin ran repair installation and then put your packages back in and I have not run into any trouble since.

Thanks Again.

Nice nice, thanks for checking it out guys.

 

edit: btw, @imjackd' you don't need to run origin repair even! Just delete the scripts pack in ur ecogame folder (the same name as the one you downloaded above) and maxis will re-download it for ya'! Much faster than repair

      SimCity 4 is a spreadsheet that will never be balanced, but that’s what makes it so fun, even 14 years after release.
      Yesterday, an article about SimCity 4's Network Addon Mod, a comprehensive mod for roads and traffic in SimCity 4, reached the front page of r/Games.”Not only has SimCity 4 survived, it has thrived with new creations offered daily by content-makers, and has even evolved with substantial player-developed modifications like the Network Addon Mod,” author Dirktator wrote. While that’s definitely true, and the thriving mod community for SimCity 4 is a joy to browse through, after playing until two in the morning I can safely say that SimCity 4 also holds up on its own.
