    Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.

     I posted this image a while ago in the "Show Us Your Railroads" thread . But this one is sorta different . It's my first try at image editing and I think it turned out okay . Good enough for the challenge , I think .

Good luck everybody . 

Below is where I have it on an image hosting site .

It's amazing how a simple rail junction and some automata can look so good with the right backdrop :).

Assuming both trains are moving, you must have one efficient (dangerous) signalling system though :P.

  1. Here is a terrible mistake of dispatcher. If something more had happened, the accident would be unavoidable. In real live it's too dangerous. But here i'm quibbling, ok...
  2. Vanilla trees? It a big fail.
  3. What is it in the lower left corner? Yes, it's a "Hide" icon. It's a big fail too.
  4. For the rest, here's too boring and uninteresting. Here's no any relief. Only almost, some kind of, solid forest.


  1. Smooth turns. But not so smooth for passing by on high speed train. I hope that they are not passing by on the full speed. But I know, it's impossible to make quite smooth road by any means of the game. Or, it's smooth enough... So, it's ok. Even a bit more than only "ok".
  2. Not vanilla passenger train. But i think it's would be quite weird to use vanilla passenger train, while in this site (and many other) a big range to download and use. I hate vanilla train. So, it's ok too.

5 stars - 4 (because of count of "-") and + 2 = 3 stars. I have set this mark, but in relation to other works, I would put 2 stars.

I voting in this challenge impartially, but too strictly because, you participating here, so you need to do your work so as to it would be impossible to find ANY fault there at all. I think that this might be one of the best works, if you at least tried to make it better. Believe me, in this competition, here's NO any work (at the moment of comment writing), which received 5 stars, because ANY had, at least, one mistake. Therefore, I had never took part in any of these challenges, because, I know, I can left, at least, one mistake in my work. 

Here I hurried and put the 3 stars, but really wanted to - 2.

UPD: I commented this image only because of my only one mistake. So thus, I explained, why i'd rather set 2 stars more than 3.

      Hi all,
      I've been trying to build a custom region for a few days now but nothing seems to run properly. Specifically, I want to have lots of 4x4km maps and have seen a lot of tutorials on how to accomplish this. So far, I've been doing the following:
      1. Creating a new region in SimCity to harvest documents from (ie: "Template Region"), then quitting the game
      2. Going into SimCity 4 in my "Documents" folder, then into the Regions sub-folder, and creating a new folder (ie: "Test Region")
      3. Copy-pasting a region.ini from Template Region's folder into the new Test Region's folder, turning region.ini into a .txt, setting the value to "1" for ocean and entering "Test Region" as the name, then re-saving it as region.ini
      4. Copy-pasting the BMP from the Template Region's folder, editing all the colours in a graphics editor (Paintbrush for Mac) as follows: 255, 0, 0, for red, blue, and green respectively, blue = 4x4, green = 2x2, red = 1x1.
      5. Starting up SimCity 4
      Then it crashes.

      Can anyone think of what I'm doing wrong?? I have to delete the Test Region before I can get the program to run again, though I oddly got one test region working, albeit it was missing all the green (2x2) maps! 

      Help greatly, greatly appreciated!

      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.
