      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

Ehh, I'm too inactive, it seems.(ithinkitshouldbeinadifferentthreadbutmeh)

Welp welp welp, after several tries of a everlasting metropolises (starting from Velder(<Southern most city, south end of the Usaki Shinkansen, core of the Sugami Prefecture & Velderian Metropolitan Area), to Hinate(Northern-most city, northern end of the Sanchi Shinkansen, capital & most populous of the Sungae Prefecture and the Higaria Metropolitan Area),  passing by Nakamura(< 1st 100k resident , most populous city and capital city of the Yumagata Metropolitan Area, and capital city of the Prefecture of Nanji), 

 

I present to you, the capital city and the most populous city of the Metropolis of Strausia!(note: These 4 cities have a "sophisticated" and major railways, which connect them and enables them to be larger and more popular, but Strausia is off the charts with  it's magnificent Atari Bridge & the chinatown.)

Strausia is still in developpement but worry not, (whentheerrorsstop,iwillshow;;)

 

Spoiler

For the topic, let me show you some pictures of Hinate, meanwhile ;;

Main photo of the 100% modern commercial district of uhh i dont remember the name but meh 

the Yodobashi Akiba over there is supposed to be attached with the Bank of China Tower and supposed to be a large train station. 

Q: Hinate will ever be remade? 

A: It will.

Or maybe I have less of a life? *:D
Seriously though, I've been playing this city for well over a year now, and nowadays mainly spend my time detailing things. I think during the last three months (in real world time), the population has grown with about 50 people...

Only 50 people moved in your city?I guess the damn media is trying to make your city look bad.

Nah, I just haven't built much new stuff. Mostly I'm just playing with props, trees, decals, and replacing a few buildings here and there. Most of the city blocks in that screenshot have been redone at least once or twice

After much labor my latest, Ladera. Not much in to detail but I do like sweeping city-scapes.

      Hello, I started doing 3D modelling about a month ago, unfortunately after having done 3 different buildings in blender I just haven't yet understood the texturing system. I have tried to do seams and such, but I just can't manage to fit all the details correctly, so here are my 3 main problems on my latest building, which I aim to hopefully finish: 
      Too many faces so I cannot do the texturing easily (1,014 faces and 3,300 tris after trying to merge what I could.) How do I proceed with doing balconies? I heard something with using textures, but as said before, I am confused with them.  How should I proceed with texturing generaly.  Here are two pictures of my project: 
       
      Again thanks in advance for any possible help.

      I've been lurking about the forums for a good long while since my last journal (which, unfortunately, is not to be resurrected) - and trying out a few different approaches to the game before settling on a style/gameplay that hopefully will be sustainable in between real life. I think Delvedene failed because it was far too ambitious - finding all the perfect mods and assets, along with the micro-management of things like farms and stuff got in the way of enjoying the game.
      So, I'm playing one of the vanilla maps, unlocking everything (including all 25 areas - I was hoping to use Area Enabler, but that's broken since the last DLC, so I had to spend most of my money buying all the areas - on the other hand, having a reasonably limited amount of money helps me to prevent just wallpapering the map with cityscape ), and removing all the highways and railway.
      What I like about the vanilla maps is that they offer wide grassland areas surrounded by woods, which offer a natural limit to town growth. Contours are also a good guide (anyone know how to get the game to keep contours on display when laying down road?) What I don't like about the vanilla maps is the prebuilt highway network. I also don't like the rate at which you unlock new areas with population growth: you end up being forced into super dense small towns.

      Chelsea
      The town of Chelsea currently stretches along one main road (which will go on to connect to another town by the river later - below the image), with three other roads: the first, leading into Stepano (right of the image) - the industrial estate where most of the Chelsea residents work; another leading to the Cockerell farms (top left); and the third heading off to where yet another town is planned (to the left).
      In the background you can see Mt Chelsea.

      Chelsea again, from a different angle (Stepano to the bottom). You can see a thin belt of trees separating Chelsea from another grassland area where the next town is planned (mid-left). In the background is Mt Runcorn, where an old fortification sits (put there by the map designers, but just outside the 25 tile limit).

      And a closeup of the Chelsea Cemetary, surrounded by some parklands (open space is going to be a big deal in these towns - I am desperately trying to avoid wall-to-wall buildings).

      Anyone knows any way to terraform the land of an asset in the asset editor. I want to make an asset slightly raised on a hill.  Is there any way to do that?

      So i was just playing cities skylines and a bought a dlc, and downloaded a number of mods, i was trying to fix the the speed of my game since i had a mod before that made time more realistic before i bought my dlc that changed it to -x4. I deleted the mod i had and when i loaded it back up i got an error that i couldn't take off the screen, ive removed all my mods, uninstalled,reinstalled and gotten the sos mod and nothing works, i can record what i can see if that help but i wondered if i could get any help since im not letting a city of 132,000 go so quickly.
       
      Thanks in advance
