     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 .

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.

      Hello all.
      This subject is something I have thought about for a long time. I love all kind of city building games, but SC3000 has always been my favourite. Why is this? Well, other than some childish nostalgia I think map size has a lot to do with it. I have played a decent amount of SC4, but I have always been frustrated about the small map sizes. I know you can build large regions in SC4, but these regions consists of smaller independent maps that are rendered independently. This has always irritated me with SC4, since I never had the feeling that I was building something very large in one picture.
      I know the map size in SC3000 isn't very large either, but I do think it is easier to build a metropolis like city in one map in this game.  
      Please correct me if I'm wrong. If there is something I have missed about SC4s map sizes, I would love to hear. SC4 is such a nice game, the graphics are awesome and way more realistic than SC3000. The community and downloads has always been bigger and better for SC4, so I would love to make a switch to the game, but I never think I will unless one can build large cities in ONE map. 
      Do you guys know something that I don't?

      I have being fighting with these glitches for the last couple days. I haven' loaded anything recently, they just appeared (disappeared) all by themselves. The bad thing is that they are hampering my game something serious.
      Also, the little panoramic image of Paris in my signature disappeared too. But I already fixed that.

      SimCity 4 is a spreadsheet that will never be balanced, but that’s what makes it so fun, even 14 years after release.
      Yesterday, an article about SimCity 4's Network Addon Mod, a comprehensive mod for roads and traffic in SimCity 4, reached the front page of r/Games.”Not only has SimCity 4 survived, it has thrived with new creations offered daily by content-makers, and has even evolved with substantial player-developed modifications like the Network Addon Mod,” author Dirktator wrote. While that’s definitely true, and the thriving mod community for SimCity 4 is a joy to browse through, after playing until two in the morning I can safely say that SimCity 4 also holds up on its own.

      [SOLVED] thanks to @rsc204
      So, I'm trying to follow along with How to configure SC4 to work with your new hardware by @Mysteryous.
      I have two disc versions of the game. One is SC4 + RH and the other is SC4 Deluxe. My game comps are identical with the exception of the video cards. Relevant specs are:
      Dell OptiPlex GX270 2.8 ghz CPU 2 Gig Ram 20 Gig EIDE Hard Drive Windoze XP Pro On the one I call my 1st Dell SC4 Game Comp the video card is:

      And its config-log.txt:
      The relevant part (I believe) being:
      applying Not Slow GeForce applying Fast card applying Fast card> option 12 = 1 applying Fast card>> option 1 = 3 applying Fast card>>> option 0 = 3 applying Fast card>>>> option 2 = 3 applying Fast card>>>>> option 4 = 1  
      Using the same Region in the same City Tile here's what I see when I turn the map:

      On the 1st Dell with the 128 mb video card it takes 7 seconds to draw all the trees. I'm assuming that is par for this course considering the antiqueness of the comp and card. However, what has me puzzled is the 2nd Dell has a 256 mb video card and it takes 11 seconds for the same re-draw.
      That card is:

       
      So, I tweaked these two files like this:


       
      And here's its config-log.txt
      Which shows no Fast anything being applied and the 11 seconds re-draw did not change.
      Do I have the code lines wrong or just why is the better card performing slower than the one with half the memory?
       
      Edit: So, I changed the Graphics Rules.sgr line to:
      stringMatch cardIdentity "ATI*HD2400*"
      And the Video Cards.sgr line to:
      card 0x94C4 "VisionTek Radeon HD2400 Pro AGP"
      And now I get:
      applying Not Slow GeForce applying Fast card applying Fast card> option 12 = 1 applying Fast card>> option 1 = 3 applying Fast card>>> option 0 = 3 applying Fast card>>>> option 2 = 3 applying Fast card>>>>> option 4 = 1 ^ for the VisionTek 256 mb card.
      Draw speed is now 9 seconds instead of 11, but still slower than the 128 mb card. I guess that's the best I'll get?
