      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

Light sources do not render during night time

2 posts in this topic


Images are more obvious. I seem to be having this bug during night time. The light sources all disappear completely, including that around the mouse; before that, the screen shows a cyan haze. The HUD itself is absolutely fine, buildings are still targetable, FPS remain high enough, the city continues to function. If I wait for day time, or reset the time to noon, it all comes back to normal.

I suspect this may be a mod causing this issue, has anybody else come across this? I do use a custom theme for this map (the Saint Martin one), could that be the culprit?

Sounds like a graphics mod, perhaps adaptive prop visibility thingamagic? I've not encountered this so far, but there's been a couple of mod that updated recently and they've not been working like Theme Mixer. Presumably they're going to be updated. As far as I know  most of the graphics mods are not updated nor working, even if they seem to be updated. I don't know if this also applies to the LOD distance render view as well.

      In simcity 4, i've always had the common bug of the city region tile showing as a blank tile however still being functional in the region when clicking out of the window while saving, however now it's just in general. I plan on having region shots for my city journal however this is making it very hard. Is there any discovered fix or workaround? I want to avoid removing mods as much as possible.
      Mod folder size: 7.80 gigabytes

      (and, a side note, 2/3 times when i open a city tile the game stops responding, and i normally restart. is this fixable or just completely harmless? tis been happening for a while unlike this bug so i'm just wondering)
