Nightmare on Sim St.

A True Thrilling Traffic Story:

There are no plugins in either folder.  Can anybody tell me why there are no sims on the street going to work in the commercial and industrial zones?  When I connected the residential area to the region the trucks rolled across Sim St., but still nobody went to work and neither did they move out. 

So who exactly is working in the commercial and industrial zones and driving those trucks?

My God, they must be invisible zombies!

The graphical representation of what the sims are doing and what the simulation is doing is often very inconsistent.  SC4 is far from anything like virtual reality simulation, its a bit of a thrilling revelation if you may have expected visual data and logical data to be consistent.   Its impossible to show an accurate and actual picture of traffic, else what you would see in the above picture is hundreds of passenger vehicles gridlocked on their commute to work.    So instead you get a thrilling picture of an empty lane and a sign and some text.  

Just in case, if you go to the bottom of the landscaping tools menu there's a menu item for 'signs and labels tools'.  The signs and labels are part of the 'in game' user interface.

      I searched a lot to see if something and anything about this theme, nada. I got myself a newish comp with WIN 8.1 (64). I would like to install SC4 D there, either the 640 or 641, as I have both. But I had more than my share of troubles with SC4 D and my old and dying XP-sp3.

      I saw a little while ago some posts -maybe a thread- about shifting LHD to RHD. There was one about the registry key which did the trick. But on a new town I just started, the silly Sims went back to LHD.
      SO after a couple hours of searching, I couldn't find them.

      Evening, all.
      I'm curious to know whether this bug has been experienced by any other users and whether there is a solution.
      I have attempted to render several custom regions. When completed, I encounter this issue, circled in red:

      It may be worth noting also that land edges are also of low quality. As far as I can determine, this has happened only with regions downloaded to this computer from the STEX. Regions downloaded and rendered prior to reformatting my hard drive, and copied to this installation of SimCity 4 show no such anomalies.
      Might it possibly have something to do with the low quality of grayscale JPGs used to render the regions in-game, or perhaps some kind of compression occurred when the grayscale JPGs were downloaded thus reducing the image quality?
      I'd much appreciate your thoughts on this.
      Mod Edit: This topic is too old to bump, so I'm adding this for anyone who runs across this thread while researching a similar problem. I've explained the cause in this post.
