Looking for active and cooperative mayors to join region and continue a supportive community. Experienced or new mayors encouraged.
Original SimCity 2013 only please, no Cities of Tomorrow (all other adaptations are ok, just ask before deploying mods) Be active in communicating and collaborating with other mayors. 2 map lots per mayor (Please ask before claiming more than one map lot), preferably just 1 to start and eventually we'll roll into 2 cities per mayor if they are not occupied completely. play at your speed, don't feel rushed. Just enjoy and have fun! lets get some awesome skyline pictures and let the creativity flow and learn a thing or two from one another. If you want to discontinue playing with this group just let me know and please abandon the map so i can manage it and clear it for someone else to play. I chose Rambling Badlands because of it's fairly linear arrangement of terrain (other maps are much too gradient/sloping and cause graphics issues), plentiful resources and allows 7 cities on each side of mountain range with 1 great work on each side. I personally thought it was a much better set up than just 4 mayors per region quadrant.
Also Rambling Badlands is extremely bug free.
Badlands is also a nice change of scenery from the traditional maps.
My Origin name is: Moogu69
I have been an active mayor since release of this title with 1300+ hours logged
so please message me if you're interested! cheers!

All welcome to join.

Here's a link to the official site server list and status:
Issues related to online game-play:
I haven't completed a list of official (non-user-created) DLCs for SC5 (2013), but below are general indicators of what variation there may be in content between players online:
Limited, Digital Deluxe, Collectors
Windows: NA, EU, AU, JP, UK, Worldwide, Mac OSX
Latest Version: 10.03.04.00
So far I have determined that user-created mods are less likely to cause difficulty in online game-play than the yet 'unfixed' condition of different official DLCs causing the 'unable to reclaim' error.
If a city is abandoned by another player and you can't reclaim it, it is most-likely because of the variation in official DLC.
Not being able to reclaim an abandoned city is most-likely the difference of which 'release' is being used by different players. Some content that was available for free and has been discontinued is furthermore likely to cause the error.
All welcome to join means ALL regardless of geographic location, release or OS.
From the multiplayer menu you can view a region and visit the cities in the region without having to 'claim' a city to get inside to look around. This way you can choose from several public regions with active players to join, and then claim a city in one you want to play without immediately leaving behind an abandoned city that can't be reclaimed by others if they have different DLCs.
Well today is a bit different, today I was given a link to some interesting software which allowed mapper and terraformer to expand their horizons so to speak. So thanks to Kitsune for the link.
Ok, for the test I have stitched the four quadrants of Los Angeles together and produced a single map measuring a whopping 147.456km x 98.304km. Now it does come with a few caveats:
1 is I'm not going to render it as I have a bit of trouble scrolling around.
2 is it is only 64bit territory.
3 is you must patch mapper to load the map, there is a link in the readme. AND NO, Do not patch mapper if you are running windows XP or any other 32bit version of windows. I suspect it could crash a 32bit version. You have been warned. I cannot stress that enough.
4 is you may have trouble scrolling in SC4.
5 is well have fun.
That I think is about all.
Mod Edit: Fixed error with file not downloading.
According to the f-zero wikia (fzero.wikia.com) Port Town is a center for interplanetary trade and home of the bounty hunter and famous F-Zero racer Captain Falcon.
If you’ve seen some of my other album, you may have noticed I like to be inspired by fiction.
This was done long ago before offline mode or mods.
