I am creating this thread for anyone still using my creations to request or bring to my attention something that needs fixing or not working properly.  Whether it's my Mars content, my L.O.T.R content, or SC4 content. I will do my best to repair. 

 

At the moment I have begun work on my Mars content. 

****NOTE****

If it is a night lighting problem I can not repair that as my original gmax files are lost. 

Please keep that in mind when you post your request.

Looking through my farm lots it would seem that they are going to have to be rebuilt from the ground up. And uploaded. Looks like prop packs are missing as the links no longer work. Rendering my lots unusable now.

 

Beginning to wish I had stuck to my own props.  Looks like alot of my own work is also missing from the STEX. Wish I had gotton back here alot sooner. 

 

I will extend this thread to include requests as well.  My specialty has allways been farms.

Non, they haven't disappeared.

The links are not valid anymore because the whole adresses of stuff on the stex has a different format than before.

You have a number in the old links. Google this number and "simtropolis" and you'll certainly find the new adress.

Or you can just google the names of the prop packs.

Many of the dependencies for your lots have been consolidated into prop packs on SC4Devotion. Datanode and PIM-X are your best friends for tweaking/fixing/updating your files. Datenode especially, as it will point out whether something is still missing even if you have all the dependencies you know of. The LD file in your .lot files may shed light on what's missing...

Godspeed on your quest. It is appreciated.

c & p this into Google:

"Mary Maurine Mayo" site:http://community.simtropolis.com/files/

Does that help? Or did you already know of those? And you can c & p just the name part of the missing dependencies in place of the name inside the quotes to find other stuff. And / or do the same search for props on SC4Devotion's LEX.

Well got this to the lot editor today and only one thing showed up on the lot. Boy I sure leaned on alot of others work in the past. Im not even sure if this lot was even growable at this point. 

It was a 5X7 lot.  It seems to be def messed up. Hope I can fix it and reupload it. If it's not growable it may take a bit. 

It does look by the read me files that I used alot of simpegs dependency s. A couple by couch potato.

I think I am going to start by dowloading all my own prop packs then download one farm at a time rebuild them and then reupload them. 

Give them all a much cleaner and less cluttered look. Looking at the above it just seems like a plain mess. And I should have enough of my own props by now to remake these farms.

You may wish to consider using PIM-X rather than the lot editor provided by Maxis. It is, in essence, an extremely powerful upgrade to the original. Reading the manually is critically important to understand its endless feature list. While the learning curse is akin to climbing Mount Everest, in the end the tool is easier to use than its predecessor. Datanode is an auditing tool that will tell you if dependencies are missing, if something is wrong, and much more.

Just a curious question but why did the BSC Team leave Simtropolis?

 

I will have to wait till I get on my laptop to check out the file above. The mobil version took me to some add page then to sc4 devotion.

This might be the most useful sentence I've read in a very long time.

Updated look still needs work and for some reason my outhouse shows up in the list of props but not the model file. Not sure why. 

Much cleaner look and not so cluttered looking.

I got the files.. however when downloading the datanode it brought up 3 files since i do not know which one I will need I downloaded all three. untill i can figure out the new tools i will be using what I know. I also have to get all my prop packs installed on the other pc along with these tools. I cant get simcity4 delux to work on my laptop.

I grabbed all my prop packs and will be uploading them all in one zip file to make it easier to find. Have to test them to make sure they all work. Does anyone know how to remove items from a .dat file.I need to take the outhouse out from one .dat file cause it seems to be broke.

Yea thats what I would like to do. I want to make it as easy as I can for anyone who wishes to use my new lots to find the props. 

Ok I know I downloaded that I just have to figure out where it went to. I may have to redownload it.

After much frustration this little lot is on its way to be finished. I finally got it to show up in the game no big box. Seems something got corrupted in the building file used on its prev version. Totally unfixable. So had to make a new buidling file and use that instead. So it now grows again. Much to my relieve. Its not going to look the same as the above pic. However it will still have a cleaner look to it. Will not be so cluttered.

Night lighting non.  May not be turned on. Or the bats didnt get nightlights.

And the effect farm horses didnt exactly work out as planned but maybe for the fun of it I may just leave it.

Is this the correct linky for the update? JBMLittle House Farm Tree Farm

Yep, I got one to grow in my game. :)

When you get some time it'd be great if you can update the STEX description to include the dependencies list. I just dropped it into my plugins and got brown boxes when it grows. Then (after ofc) I read your included .doc file and see there are dependencies I'll need to get.

Good luck and keep up your fine work on your collection.

 

Edit: I believe this is one of the deps: JBM Farm Buildings Volume 1

That farm on the stex is obsolete. It will no longer function. This one will replace it and as a bonus all dependencys will be included.

Oh. Cool. I saw that it was updated Friday and thought it was the one you were working on. @Mister Giggles is in chat and found the one I edited in to my post. He has since located every dependency.

having a problem with creating a prop. i have the model file which loads into the sc4tool program and i tell it to make it a prop, but wont show up in the lot editor.. any advice.

 

I have a SC4Model file and a SC4Disc file am i missing a file. 

 

figured it out. apparently because the prop is larger than 1x1 tile it would not show up. fixed the lovely problem. Grrrr.....

I was able to get datanode installed and running on my laptop. I however am still unable to get PIM X to run on either pc.

 

Also I can't seem to remember how to attatched or assigne the field lot. The SC4 plugin manager will only allow me to choose one of maxis in game field lots. I tried using the reader but cant seem to remember how to get to the right edit screen to do it. 

So there will be a delay untill I can figure this out. Sorry guys. 

 

IMG_20160706_120349.jpg

First screen that comes up. As you can see first two lines are blank.

 

IMG_20160706_120428.jpg

 

Second box that comes up. 

 

Pretty much the same on the other pc

      Minderia
      The land of Technology
       
      On February 4, 1991, the US State of Minderia was granted independence after a referendum on the issue the previous year. Located on a giant island west of Los Angeles, it shares a water border with the United States, and its capital is Minderia City, which was only founded in 1977. This SimCity 4 YouTube City Journal is meant to follow the growth of the seven major cities of Minderia. In the end, (sometime in 2020) we will have a city journal finally worthy of being on the City Journal section of this site (which is probably when ST 10.0 will be released)
       
      Without further ado, here's Part 1 of the series!
       
      Here's a rundown on what has been done in this video. In the first entry to this series, we make the interchange of Highway MA4 and MA7 on the South Split as well as build up a retail park, which will be moved further down south because it doesn't exactly look realistic where it sits now. Other than that, I forgot the skyscraper re-lots from KOSC, yeah. Gonna half to download those before the next episode.

      I installed NAM version 35 a couple of days ago, and works flawlessly, with little to no problems. However, it seems to be doing something with my roundabouts: the avenue, one-way, and regular road roundabouts seem to completely disappear, and I usually have to bulldoze the whole thing and attempt to rebuild it, with rudimentary results. This is a serious concern for me, as some of my cities are saturated with roundabouts.
      I've included a photo below for reference.
      Thanks in advance for any assistance.

      Hello, I'm unsure of where to post this, so I'll try here. I made a region using.png height map and a config (proportions are correct (64xregionsize+1)) but my region isn't rendering. I created a new folder in the SimCity 4 regions folder. I put in the config and the .png when I went to the region, I pressed Contr+Alt+Shift+R, like you would, then I navigated the menu and attempted to load the png, from there the dialogue closed and it left me with an empty region, with no signs of anything happening. I've  used downloaded regions before without any real issue, but now I'm not even getting the 'rendering' pop up, what's going on?

      Sparkle is going to Mars!
      In this video city journal of SimCity 4's SimMars Mod, we will build up Sparkle's Mars Colony of Raccoon City, as we begin to build up the major infrastructure of the city. Can this Mars Colony survive the harsh environment to come, or will it all fall apart? We also have to take into account that the SimMars mod likes to crash and corrupt its plugins, so we also have to survive the SimCity 4 Mod equivalent of Windows Vista. Will we survive the glitchiness?
       
      Without further ado, onto episode one!
      As well as some pictures of Fox Hollow, the southeast side of Raccoon City. Also, I have yet to get the UI disabler mod, so prepare for some UI elements that slipped through.

      The Fox Hollow Prepatory Academy. This is Fox Hollow's most prestigious school, and has the second highest graduation rate of any school in Fox Hollow, only being beat out by Foxie Central High School's 97%.

      The Raccoon City Museum of History. Located just northwest of Speedway 465, this museum showcases all the geo-political history of Raccoon City. Silly me forgot to take the picture without the tooltip in it.

      Near the greenhouses, you will find the local farmer's market. The perfect place to pick up the best pretzels this side of Raccoon City. This place also has some retail, so shop around, I'm sure you'll find something. (Quick note: There's a video game store that has copies of SimCity 4 that'll work on Steam AND Origin. They're pretty rare, so good luck finding them.)

Here we will also do some other games as well such as:
