How to install content from STEX Discs

4 posts in this topic

How do I download and install content from the Stex DVD into my Simcity 4 game?  I have installed the Stex DVD  onto my computer, but haven't figured how to add the content into my game.

I went through threads in this forum on installing and there are differences between the volumes. Currently a lot of people are getting the disk(s) and your question would be best answered and shared as a thread on its own.   If you go back to the 'Simtropolis Related' forum where you found this thread there's a red button to 'Start New Topic'.  Use your question as the title and indicate which Stex disk you have.   There are different answers depending on which disk you have, and there's several different volumes and disk versions.  This thread is just about the site reaching 20K files of user created content.

Keeping things simple, I've moved this topic for you @dan2004.

Sorry, can't help you with your question, I've never seen the discs myself. But, for some generic advise, all plugins need to be placed into the Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder to work. If those files are .zip files, they must be extracted or the game won't necessarily see them. Same for any which come with installers, you need to run that installer before use.

I think the discs will just be a showcase of the files upon the CD. There should be an option somewhere to copy or install that files when you select them.

If that's not helping, hold tight, someone more knowledgeable will almost certainly be along to help :).

If you open the disk it will have tabs for different categories of files but in the top far right corner is a tab labeled "Help".  Click it and it lays out the instructions on what to do with the files start to finish.  I strongly suggest you take your time looking over all the files and don't go nuts downloading a bunch all at once or you will most assuredly run into errors.  One file at a time, read the entire readme file for each download and make sure it works before you go downloading more.  It's real easy to just start popping off files into your plugins folder but it will cause problems if you're not confident that you know what you're doing.  There is a ton of great stuff on them and they're real easy to just grab and go but, seriously, try to resist the urge if you can.  One at a time.  Enjoy looking through them - like a big SC4 Christmas catalog!

      Phew, there we are. A big shout out to @matias93, @JP Schriefer and @Hamish for help putting all this together. I hope this will help one or two of you to make a choice, and some nominations! I need a drink now. No, make that two... bottles.
       
    • By T Wrecks
      Hello everybody!
      With the Trixie nominations opening soon and the year 2015 so far back, we thought it would be a good idea to provide a little overview list that contains most STEX uploads we thought to be notable - "notable" as in: hopefully useful to be aware of so you have a little orientation for the upcoming Trixie nominations.
      So if you find yourself scratching your head and wondering something along these lines...
      What has been made and uploaded in 2015 anyway? Has BAT artist XYZ even been active back then already? / Was that BAT I remember uploaded in 2015? Did something slip under my radar? Were there other uploads in the same category that could rival the one I'd nominate? ...then the following list may be helpful. It is sorted into broad categories, and I added some brief descriptions and comments here and there. The list is sorted in the order of appearance (i.e. as I found stuff when I sifted through the STEX) and not a ranking of any kind. While it is certainly not perfect, we sincerely hope it will be helpful. Should you find any mistakes, don't hesitate to comment!
      It is worth noting that some entries may be featured in more than one category because they have multiple purposes.
      We'd also like to remind you that we have a discussion thread where you can share your personal favourites. This list is formatted as links only (no pictures) because it would take ages to load otherwise, but of course you can feel free to take it as a resource to pick out and present your personal favourites - with images and whatever you like. Picking from this list may be more handy than browsing all those STEX pages again.
      So without further ado, here's the list for 2015:
       
      BATs and lots
       
      Commercial
      @nos.17 has taken care of  @Bobbo662's old retail BATs and given them new and much improved lots, filling the low-rise commercial services category - examples:

    • By MarkShot
      So, I got STEX 3/4/5.
      Now, I know the difference between ploppable and growable.
      I would like greater diversity in my cities.
      My questions:
      (1)  How do you get such growable diversity without spending hours sifting through thousands of STEX entries?  Also, I am scared to add things.  Why?  What if, I add something I don't like.  If I remove it from my plugins, I will be left with boxes won't I?
      (2)  Now regarding ploppables.  The UI is 15 years old or so.  Simply with Maxis and NAM finding stuff is not quick.  A large part of the time building is spent searching/scrolling.  I see by adding ploppables, I am only going to increase the overhead I have to play.
      Help?
      Thoughts?
      Thanks!

      Excuse me, if same topic exists, but my drunk bear going to crack my door, so I have no time. 
      My map has 5x5 large cells, without 2 cells (cause I've deleted them, there were just water)

      planted trees (AErden tree controller)

      and some transportation (under this red circles, it's just connections, so except this, there not more transportation).

      So, I've zipped it, but i got 108 megabytes file. I think, it'll be too large to upload it to STEX. I've tried to compress it better, but it still is 108 megabytes. How to compress it to save trees and transportation?
