      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'd love to be able to do 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 is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. 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

      Chat is back...   06/22/2017

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

Great Works problem/question

4 posts in this topic

MY son and I are in multiplayer.  We have they cities in a region and have started an International Airport in the Great Works area.   It has as establish, construction started and it asking for Alloy, Metal and petroleum from the cities. We have stared the giving process from two of the cities and the arrows show it should be going but nothing seem to ever get there.  One city has oil wells and the other recycles to get Alloy and Metal.  What are we missing? I tried turning off Global Deliveries at the trade center but that did not help. Suggestions?  thanks

I think you'll need Global Deliveries to export the goods to the Great Works site. Perhaps you need to switch off local deliveries, to avoid the resources being used locally? Otherwise if you have a surplus, perhaps you can "gift" them to the Great Works like with other cities, although I never tried this personally.

I believe that rsc204 is correct.  You will need the global deliveries turned on to deliver the goods to the Great Works project.  However, I believe that local deliveries and any needs in your city take higher priority.  Therefore you will need to make sure you are producing enough extra to take care of your city needs, then any neighbor deals and finally the Great Works needs.

Also, make sure you give the simulator enough time to actually recognize the deliveries.  If the deliveries are being made, you should actually see trucks driving to the Great Works to drop off the material.

In order to get this to work, you would to need to setup your trade system kind of like this if you produce from your city chunk (locally).

->Extraction unit->Processing Unit                     ->Storages ->Delivery service.


So in the end, you would need to have, at least, two trade buildings  : one used as an extra local storage plates for your local products and another one for deliveries.

Better grammar, corrected typos, added a bit more details.

      What is this?
      I'm getting almost zero anything because of this and it always happens. The Great Works is the best choice for me but all it does it this.
      I have a whole city pumped but in the midst of that; this happens and my city turns to the negatives. I've been sitting here losing almost
      300k an hour trying different things. I just can't. I need that assistance but this happens.
      Does anyone know what could be done?
      I need that Great Work D.

      Well After Sometime they are out "Plopable Great works" Please Read below before downloading  
      the Fully built Great works that just need plopping
      Some Notes 
      There is a small thing about them They are NOT bulldozable 
      and they will not be at a cost 
      let me explain
      Great Works have a few files one for each stage of building and one for scripting(Simulation) and then property data. 
      now Due to that there is a high risk of editing the scripting part by adding cost and making them bulldoze, due to editing the main file and not a copy of it so that is the reason
      and then the ploppable great works will not show regional wise they are for one city and that is all
      from there they are a tricky plop  so play around a little bit there 
      However this is NOT a Cheat mod if i can find a way to add cost with out harming the simulation part i will and update them 
      you will need AKar and the Akar custom content menu in order to get this mod to work 
       and it can be downloaded here 
      and Project orion for ploping 
      and it can be downloaded here
      None so far :P
      i would also like to thank the following
      MaxisGuillaume: for helping me with the scripting 
      Xoxide: for helping me with anything i needed 
      Yayie:  For helping me with the icons
      hinata: for always wanting to help in anyway she can 
      Markusloo: for helping me with screenshots
      How to install
      extract the RAR
      and place the package file in
      C:\program files(86)\origin Games\SimcityData
      i am not responsible for any damage or errors caused to the game or PC
      Please comment and tell me if there is anything wrong
