      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

      2012, Jarunja City - The government became Tennis, a serious sport. In effect was built the Jarunja Open Stadium. This event is the most important in the region.

      As expected, my save failed to load. What's the protocol here? Should I disable all mods and try to add them back one-by-one?
      Let's help each other out by listing out mods that have been broken and should definitely be disabled. Who will go first?

      Hi all!
      its been more than a year since i released something!
      and i finally completed the German set i promised ages ago!
      These new pylons have tons of little changes including a more realistic height and alot of new details.
      but thats not all The sets are bigger now including even more pylons like
      -Anchor pylons
      -Switch pylons
      -Rivercrossing pylons.

      The pylons are in real life arround 30 meters(or slightly higher)
      and in simmeter its arround 60(because sims are 4 meters long)

      So they dont fit that well with my older models

      For more info check out the readme wich you can find VVV and in the rar file.
      have fun!

      This set will eventually get an expansion pack including diagonal switch, anchor and river crossing pylons. but also more substation models and another pylon model.

      ---German themed high voltage pylons---
      Models and lot files are created by Buzzit.
      This package contains the following files:
      1x Straight pylon(model+lot)
      1x diagonal pylon(model+lot)
      1x Corner pylon left(model+lot)
      1x Corner pylon right(model+lot)
      1x Corner Pylon 90 degree(model+lot)
      1x Substation pylon(model+lot)
      1x Anchor pylon(model+lot)
      1x Switch pylon((model+lot)
      1x Rivercrossing pylon(model+lot)
      No dependencies required!

      Whats new?
      - pylons are twice the size of the other sets.
      This time i used a character to help me modeling. After i knew that sims are accually 4 meters instead of 2 i remodeld
      my standards to fit this. Thats why my pylons look so big compared to some maxis buildings. allthough they fit quite nicely
      with newer/custom buildings.
      -More details:
      This one speaks for it self. The pylons now have more details.
      - Darker textures on the pylon it self with little dirt and rust spots.
      -More pylon types including anchor switch and river crossing pylons.

      Known issues
      - The pylons catch fire sometimes. i dont know why these pylons do that. as my other sets arent having this glitch.
      to fix this just send your firefighters to controle the flames hehe
      if they catch fire alot. come back here and tell me i will seriously look into it furter more.(but as far as i know they dont catch fire that much)

      - You cant place trees arround and under the pylons. if you do want to have vegitation. first demolish the pylon and
      after that add the vegitiation you like(but this glitch is accually realistic lol.)

      This set contains 9 220kV double circuit one-level pylons wich are based on RL models.
      the corner, straight and special pylons are all power-eye-candy.
      But the substation pylons act like actual powerplants(wich generate about 2000MW) wich means
      you don't need to plop a new powerplant or use a power cheat
      everytime you create a new map.
      The pylons aren't slope friendly and should only be used on flat ground.
      Feel free to use the pylons for your own powerlots under the condition
      that you give me credit for the pylons themselves.
      If you have any issues place the issue on the forums of SC4D or Simtropolis and i will try to solve them ASAP

      Have fun!

      Next set: French 20kV medium voltage pylons HD 2.0(Overhauled)

      A while back, I purchased Sim City 4 on Origin when it was on sale. I had no issues installing NAM, RHW, and even using a custom resolution. I had to reset my PC due to a virus. I reinstalled SC4, but now Origin won't update it past 1.1.610. I tried contacting support and they gave me a long list of things to do that have nothing to do with getting an update (disabling anti-virus, safe-mode, etc, etc.)
      Why did they go from giving you the fully patched version of the game to blocking you to 610? Is it something on my end or did EA actually change something? No matter if I download the game to my SSD or HDD, I get the same result. 
      A separate patch I downloaded with NAM tells me old files can't be found and won't allow me to install a new patch, so no NAM. Anyone here have the same issue? A solution besides buying another copy on GoG?

      Quick question. I shared an asset on Steam which required 3 props. Now I changed the asset and it requires just 1 new prop. How to update it so the people get this new prop automatically?
