      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

Update: I had to delete asset from the Workshop, since it's not showed up in the workshop itself. There's also a problem with asset updating, assets are being updated for some reason. 

I'll wait tomorrow if it changes. 

Update: Seems it's fixed:

I have to say that I really like the trains that you're creating. However, there's one thing that makes me not use them as much as I want to: most of the trains have no barebones livery where the majority of the vehicle is line colored. A good example would be the DB Regio livery that you're using for some of the trains, but instead of having the white line be line colored, the white line should stay white and the red parts should change color. Most of your trains either only have a small part of the livery that's line colored, or have a lot of details in other colors in addition to the line colored parts. What I'm looking for is a livery that's mostly line colored, and with details in white, black and grey only.

If you're not up for doing more liveries yourself (which is understandable, since you've done a lot of them so far), is there any way that I can create custom liveries for your assets?

Hello, thanks for the feedback.

Line coloring was my personal choice, the main aim to make train sets for me at least, is to make them as realistic as possible, ergo make them look like how they look in real life, thus line coloring is there but just enough to distinguish train lines. There are train sets on the workshop with whole body line colored, and I have to say, I just don't like them the way the look. 

Making certain areas of the train line colored, was much more "elegant" solution, while maintaining the accesibility of the asset. Another point I pay attention while line coloring is the unique points of the livery. 

For example, all SBB trains have white color, so for me, what makes SBB livery a SBB livery is to maintain its whiteness. Same can be said for DB regio; for me red color is the unique feature of DB trains which distinguish them from other trains. That is why I don't touch the main color. 

For ODEG liveries, I changed that concept, making the ODEG design of front completely colorable.  I do understand your idea, but sometimes coloring the entire train just looks plain ugly. 

For example; I'm working on Trenitalia livery for ETR: 

01666102.jpg

For this livery, I'm not interested to change the color of red or other places, because it's the part of the Italian flag. Instead, I'm gonna color light grey part on the main body.

As for making liveries, I'm open to ideas. There's someone else already who made multiple (rather simply) modifications on the liveries without the source file (since he didn't ask but informed me later) so it's not a problem. He did add me as co maker of the liveries later .

Add me on Steam to disguss further

      Hello,
      I have recently tried to model for Cities: Skylines. I have made a model in sketchup and I'm trying to convert it to Blender. The model shows up just fine, however, I keep failing in making an UVW map. I don't know what I am doing wrong because I have followed multiple tutorials doing exactly what they do. But my UVW map just never shows up. I select the building, scale it, then I create a new UV map, then Mesh > Edges > Mark Seam. Then I unwrap it but it doesn't show up.
      I hope anyone can help me figuring out what's wrong.

      I've started a new project:  Capilano Islands.  I'll be posting videos to my YouTube channel as I progress, along with additional background info on my blog.  Here's the first update!

      Entry 1: Beginnings of Seattle, Washington... and early setbacks/rebuilding.
      Hello everyone!
      As most of you know by now, I've been showing off bits and pieces of my work in progress of building Seattle, Washington for Cities:Skylines.  I feel it is time for me to consolidate my progress work in a CJ place so I can share and you see my continual work in as close of an interesting city.  Some background on myself, I've loved SC4 finally came back to the city simulator world when Cities:Skylines came out.  My decision to build Seattle is due to living in the Pacific Northwest, although not in the city itself, for a number of years and the challenge it presents to a city planner. 
      So without further ado, presenting Seattle!
      I took Steam workshop map of Seattle and then I roughly recreated the regional highway network.  This work goes back sometime before After Dark.

      It was here that began my work on perfecting multi-level interchanges with the signature work on the Interstate 5 and Interstate 90 interchange.  This is first version built in map editor, obviously not perfect.  You'll see throughout this journal the gradual improvement on this design, which influences how I build interchanges now.

      As you can see, learning the finer details of onramp/offramp placement is pretty key to making good looking interchanges.  Too bad there was not any retaining walls at the time...

      Oh hey, look sunken wall assets are made.  This was my first real test of using them to prop up a hill slope while using duckclog's pillars. Unfortunately, I only had a single save file at this time of Seattle and the save file was corrupted.

      Well, it was a learned lesson to have two save files of that ever went down again... but the corrupted file incident provided an opportunity to rebuild in a more correct way.  I started Seattle again in the southern industrial heart near the I-5/I-90 interchange and made some immediate build changes. 
      First, Holgate Street Bridge and rebuilding Interstate 5 as elevated viaduct highway as it should be through this area.  

      Second, rebuild western termius of Interstate 90 near Safeco and Century Link Fields.

      Rebuilding the Interstate 5/Interstate 90 interchange in it's third and final configuration.  Sorry about the quality of this particular shot... As noted that new placement means a new alignment of the rest of Interstate 90 northward eventually.  Note that Interstate 5 is fully elevated now throughout this shot compared to earlier shots.

      Finally, overview of Pioneer Square, Sodo, and Industrial Districts.  Plus, early work on Seattle CBD layout.

      Next time, the challenge of building Interstate 5 through the Convention Center.

      So, I've been importing maps to the map editor after getting them pretty much how I want in a graphics editor. So far my chain has been:
      Download from terrain.party (produces 8-bit grayscale PNG) Apply some curves in GIMP (still 8-bit grayscale) Convert to 24-bit grayscale in IrfanView and apply a bit of blur Import into C:SL The result is still a bit lumpy - and the smoothing tool is a bit heavy-handed/uneven.
      I suppose, what would be useful, is if there were a way to smooth the whole map in the editor at once - or a better method of producing the 24-bit image
