      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts! Hardware Upgrades 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

  1. Welcome back to Petal, today we are exploring to the major shopping area, west of the roundabout full of some of the best shopping in the area.  Home of some of the large box stores, grocery stores, and restaurants , such as Walmart,  Kohl's, Target, Winn-Dixie, Starbucks, and more! So let's hop in our cars, and drive to the latest place to shop in the Parish!

     

    DUgSYhY.png

    As we start off; we start at the roundabout, where we will take the western way to the shopping, and more!

     

    LQxaCnk.png

    Starting with a Winn-Dixie, Best Buy, and a McDonald's, the Winn-Dixie gives this town the southern feel that we preserve; and with the low, low prices; Keep the people happy with the freshest produce and meat, while across the street you can go buy that new computer to play Simcity 4!

    tlvbmnV.png

    Going a bit more west, you come to the only Holiday Inn in the city; the original Holiday Inn was torn down in 1993 to build this; and the original was built in the 1960s with one of those big Great Signs of Holiday Inn, now it's a modern lodging area to provide all with comfortable lodging, and attempt to compete against the hotels in downtown like Holiday Park, and the other hotels on this part of the avenue.

    716LDVS.png

    As well, is a simple Chevrolet dealership, with new cars and great service; the Petal Chevrolet dealership which has been in business since 1928, will service you till your happy!

     

    QlJ8ms3.png

    Like any other city, Walmart's store here is always packed, and with everything you need in a modern Walmart; that replaced the original one in 2015, it as well features Subway  inside for a perfect stop for a sub, while shopping for your groceries, clothes, or anything really!

     

    YY1D8ng.png

    Of course, there is non-shopping to; we have a Chuck E Cheese's and a Starbucks near the Holiday Inn, with a Rite Aid pharmacy, all in one intersection!

    PeiQU5e.png

    There also, is a old Motorola office building for Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and the Alabama region to provide quick customer service and offices for those in the company or buying their products.

     

    nfc2wOC.png

    Don't like Walmart? There is a Kohl's near the Days Inn and the Hampton Inn, to get you your discount clothing.

     

     

    7aFiw3A.png

     Or if you want to go to the end of the shopping experience, is a Sam's Club, Lowe's or a Target. Notice the farms, and railroad; tells you the sense and the fast transition from city-suburb, to farms and rural. It really is a unique sight to see, and a characteristic of the city.

     

    Dlc2N75.png

    Right off the avenue, sits a strip mall with a Arby's, Dollar General, and other small stores and a Home Depot, right in the suburban heart but not even a minute away from the avenue.

     

    gUh6nSk.png

    To give you the sense of the shopping area's size, we couldn't even cover it in one photo from the end at the Roundabout! Show's how big it really is!

     

    xCOH5rp.png

    We will see you next time here at Saint Clements Parish!

    Those of you familiar with my CJ have seen these tiles in many different stages of development. I originally used them as a testing ground for canals and now that I've settled on style (sunken with red brick walls) I unified them so that they connect perfectly.

    This entry features the largest mosaic I've ever made that comes in at a whopping 24816 x 10107px. You'll have to download it to see it at full resolution because even dropbox can't display it.

    I encourage you to look at the pics in full size. These smaller .jpeg versions don't really do them justice (they're less than half the size). Hope you have a big screen.

    Enjoy!

    raynev1: Some beautiful night scenes . Sorry to hear about your hard drive , that's a bummer . Hope you continue Ionica . It's been a great CJ .

    Yeah well, that's just what happens when your computer is over six years old and you push it to the limit on a daily basis. Thanks.

    gviper: Hey my friend! It's been quite some time! Wasn't sure I'd hear or see you on these pages again. I myself have slowed down in activity considerably. Lovely presentation!

    Didn't mean to be gone for so long but sometimes life gets in the way. Thanks.

    korver: Great stuff as always - you probably have my favorite photoshop style of anyone here on ST and the Chinatown scenes are great. Hope you can keep this going :)

    Thanks. Looking at your work always gives me the itch to get back in the game.

    _Michael: Welcome back! I feared I wasn't following my to see any more Ionica, so it's great to have it back! :D Great looking city with some lovely design elements; can't help but noticing that north arrow though ;), can become slightly distracting!

    Lol, all these years and I still have the north arrow. Thanks.

    TekindusT: Another top notch, deliciously handcrafted mishmash of styles!

    You know I'm a fan of the mishmash, just too many good BATs to stick to one style. Thanks.

    kschmidt: Great night views ! Japanese and other buildings well lightened. NAM elevated networks and GLR features well integrated,  well done !

    Wish I had a few pictures of how it looked before. It was a mess. Thanks.

    v701: This city is still one of the best SC4 I've seen so far !! I love this clown picture on the skyscraper ! :thumb::ducky:

    Everyone loves a clown. Thanks.

    Takingyouthere: Great to see you back in action, your city building style and image presentation was sorely missed.

    That's the great thing about SC4 at this stage, everyone can have their own style. Thanks.

    tariely: Very nice night shots ! (and Trump...) Glad to know you'll be back. But CBS ? We have CBS? Or did you make that one ? I Want !:-)))

    Yup, it's mattb325's CBS. Thanks.

    Akallan: Beautiful images of nights, it seems so alive. It's beautiful all the lights of nights, my favorite is the one with the channel! :thumb:

    Thanks.

    Welcome to Enterprise!

     Enterprise is a town on the Foggy River. It started as town with a small suburb and a small shopping district. 

     

     

    20160816171145_1.thumb.jpg.eb8ca60284faa

    The center of Lilywood, the first suburb. I have a theme on that allows level one buildings to look like they are under construction. Also the elementary school is located in the center.

    It has been a long time since my last activity here on Simtropolis, since April 2013 (!) to be exact. Thanks to this rainy summer and the enormous amount of available custom content I recently started playing SC4 again, of which you can see a bit of the result here: I introduce the Island of Stil!

    Stil is a small republic (Stilnem Repblik) that encompasses the volcanic island of the same name. Its volcanic history made for a very mountainous landscape. The middle of the island is marked by the deep blue old crater lake (Lag w-Stil). Most of the 34.000 inhabitants live in the valley that connects the lake to the harbor, scattered around the coast there are some small towns and hamlets. 

    As the update title has revealed, during this update we will focus on the crater lake and the towns on its shores.

    In the middle of the lake Templom Arkan (the old monastery) pops up above the water. For centuries this has been a refuge for a dozen of monks and pilgrims from the island. Nowadays it is still in use by the monastery, and accessible to the public. Usually the island is mostly reached by a 50 metre swim across from the shore

    1_zps8y32ybuf.png

    Leg-y-fels sits on the most inland shore. North to South a part of the lake ring road , Sand kar z-Leg (A1) can be seen. To the West is the road (A8) that twist its way up to the towns of Pas and Fels-w-Haw

    2_zps4qcwxrhw.png

    Driving around on Stil, you will never be bored by a dull straight, flat road.

    3_zps3mlgl76d.png

    The town of Fels-w-Ekr, endpoint of tram line B, towards the right it runs through the densely populated valley down to the harbor.

    4_zps8dj1wlmd.png

    5_zpslzep7kf1.png

    The most outward end of the lake is decorated by the Kolum Se-Tonisem (Column of Saint-Anthony), patron saint of the island. The avenue going to the North is considered the main street of the island, as most governmental institutions and major stores are situated along the way

    6_zpsp7qzi9zd.png

    To finish this update an overview picture of the lake (still a bit rough around the edges)

  8. REPLIES:

    RandyE: Thanks a lot! With all the LUT's and map themes, you can get some really stellar shots of this game these days. Glad you enjoy.

    Takingyouthere:Thanks! I'm not so experienced when it comes to making industrial areas or power complexes. I usually don't focus much on them, so I'm glad you like them. I get what you're saying about the smokestacks, haha, but it's a trade-off, I suppose.

    raynev1: That's some high praise! SC4 is so iconic and has such a great community here at Simtropolis behind it, it can be hard (daunting even) to begin exploring another game. I came into the SC4 scene really late, so it was easy for me to start "fresh" with Skylines. It's not as deep and doesn't have as much flexibility as SC4 yet, but Skylines is a great tool for creating some beautiful cities.

    JtfnW5W.jpg

    Sunrise in the valley. Today, we're visiting a small collection of locally owned and operated farms. Harvests aren't huge, but there's enough to squeak out a living. Rise and shine...and get to work.

    7KdZ4gY.jpg

    The pigs are already snuffing around in their pens looking for their morning slop. The Pork industry considered Snake River Valley a lost cause, as you just can't sustain industrial-level mega-farms. But the pigs that do live here---well---they're delicious.

    cO3BLMW.jpg

    A variety of crops grow here, albeit in small numbers. Agave is one of the big guns here, and there's a Tequila distillery in the area.

    7gu0gp9.jpg

    Also near here are the Royal Canter Stables. A local family breeds horses here and offers riding lessons for locals and visitors alike.

    Ta4xZUw.jpg

    An early morning, pre-breakfast brushing...ah. It's the life.

    The farmland sure is peaceful and serene.

    Hope you enjoy!

  9. Wrigglestown is the suburban centre of New Wormrise. Not the most exciting area to start on, but it still has its good qualities to it.

    raynev1: Yeah, and I think it's a good one, this Cities game.

    Tonraq: Thanks, it's good(?) to be back.

     

    Just a question this time around. My recent updates used majhost and occasionally imageshack for hosting photos. However, majhost has fallen off the face of the earth and imageshack has gone premium. I've noticed ST has a gallery wherein I can upload pics. Would you all want me to reupload the pics from majhost, considering they're all still on my hard drive? It'd be a slow thing, and I couldn't guarantee I'd remember all the updates, but I would do it. Let me know.

    Also, so I don't just bore you all, here's some more pics of that city I showed you in the last entry. I want to do an update on it, I think. But I may wait until I get a new laptop, which should be by the end of August, so bear with me.

    My first CJ entry! Hope you enjoy it! :)

    Jarraban is the newest member of the Alliance of Independent Nations (AIN). Here, I present to you the CBD of the country's largest city - Derby (pop. 1,878,210). Nestled beside a large natural harbour, the CBD features extensive parks and gardens and is a mix of the old and new. World-class eateries, nightlife, sporting/cultural venues, financial institutions and shopping opportunities await visitors, not to mention pristine beaches.

    Jarraban's wiki page can be viewed here: http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=Jarraban

  15. Portburg #3 - Economy back on track!

    Welcome back to Portburg once again! 

    Portburgs city council has continued the work to improve the citys economy and attract new citizens to Portburg. Now it starts to pay off! Exports is on an all time high and the population has increased dramatically in just a few years.

    First thing we will take a look is the expansion at The Bluff close to downtown Portburg as shown in the previous entry. 

    acGXTJo.jpg
    After the sale of plots started The Bluff was fully built with apartments very quickly. It's now an attractive place for the young generation in town when they get their first own home. 

    TDEXgkV.jpg
    Bluffington Street is the main street in this neighborhood a vibrant place which quickly became know for its bars, cafés and restaurants found here. 

    Iqx0nsH.jpg
    Just north of The Bluff on the other side of the motorway a new residential area called Meadow Plain has also been built since last time.

    G7nOvpv.jpg
    Down at the harbour a brewery has opened up. The Portburg Porter Brewery has quickly become know for their well tasting beer. They are now exporting it to every corner of the country. 

    Y20Awuo.jpg
    Since the opening of the university PGM has been able to hire more and more competent young engineers. They have come up with new products like the robotic toilet cleaner and the automatic sorting machine which many recycling plants now use. This has boosted PGM sales, so they have invested in a new factory floor and an office building for their administrative employees. 

    NnNCwpn.jpg
    A new bus station was also built on the west end of Portburg avenue, currently two lines stop here. Line 100 to Amber Forest and Line 120 to Barlow (More about Barlow soon), more lines will probably follow soon to cover the increased demand for public transport. 

    dO2Yed8.jpg
    Now lets get on a bus on Line 120 and take a trip to Barlow county. The bus route first takes us out on the motorway a few miles south where the bus turns off at the newly rebuilt South Ridge interchange.

    nBy7vwG.jpg
    The bus now drives along Country road 12 more commonly know as the C-12 a winding road through the hills west of Portburg. 

    U0BqKKl.jpg
    After a few miles we reach Barlow countys small manufacturing district where the bus takes a detour into the area to pick up commuters. 

    O5S2gUh.jpg
    Then the bus drives down the hill to the town of Barlow. Barlow county is a relative small rural county but has recently seen an influx of new citizens when the industries in Portburg started to employ again. 

    IW275ef.jpg
    Most of the citizens in Barlow own their plot of land where they have built their houses, almost no apartments exists here. Many middle class families have moved here from Portburg to be able to build their own house. 

    W6ZOvGl.jpg
    In the center of Barlow lies the Barlow Park which is well visited on weekends. It's also here that the main bus stop in Barlow is located. 

    1roQoia.jpg
    Next to the Park is Barlows town hall located, they meet their Portburg counterparts several times a month to try and coordinate the expansions of housing and commerce during the now rising economic boom in the area. 

    x5xSziN.jpg
    This is High Street where all the shops and cafés in Barlow is located, usually a very busy place.

    VuXy9bp.jpg
    Now we leave Barlow and continue along the C-12, in car this time since now bus line exists between Barlow and Amber Forest yet. 

    Hk41ECY.jpg
    A mile or so later we drive past the exit to the village of Monson located across the Baker Creek. They have a wind farm located on top of the hill behind the village, wind farms are pretty common in Barlow county. 

    JnP4uux.jpg
    Next we pass by Manderley village, pretty new built and most of the inhabitants works in the forestry industry down at Amber Forest. 

    HfaiDnm.jpg
    Now we are close to Amber Forest! And what a view when we drive down into the valley. 

    D64vE9f.jpg
    And here the exporting of forestry products are in full swing, several freight trains leave this terminal every day. Further boosting the growing economy in Portburg. 

    dVvyqap.jpg
    Back in Portburg you can see that the town has invested in a new trainstation. Portburg Central is right now only used for long distance trains to cities in the country making it easier to travel. But more is planned for the future! The city council has some grand plans yet to be put into practice. 

    Welcome back next time! 
     

  16. Sorry for Part 2 taking so long. I had to go out to exotic west Fort Worth (a.k.a. the edge of civilization) to see family and friends for a few days, and there was no computer access.

     

    Now then, Miller Heights is a northern suburb of Verona, with a population of about 21,900 sims.57900a760f35b_Screenshot(44).thumb.png.d

    It's a city with something for almost everyone. You have the large office districts with over 8,000 jobs with the one west of the interstate, and over 10,000 with downtown on the east. The tallest building in the city is the Wells Fargo Plaza, which, oddly is outside of downtown. It stands at exactly 300 feet tall rising 24 stories above the SimPlanet.Untitled.thumb.png.893cd9e708499d40dd4bc

    Yes, I'm aware this picture collage looks like it was made in MS Paint, and it was actually. I know it's not the best quality, but it's the best I can do for right now.

    Anyway, the first picture (top left) shows the luxury Westfield Estates neighborhood next to the not-so-luxury Miller Heights Consolidated School. The City Council is deciding whether to demolish it and put another school in place or not. The people living along Richland Parkway (bottom of pic) and Williams Avenue (right side of pic) often complain of traffic but the city refuses to do anything about it, citing that houses are already there and putting sound walls would force the houses along Richland and Williams to be demolished. The city also reports that these houses were built before the main roads became so busy.

     

    The second picture shows most of downtown Miller Heights, with some of Lamar Avenue Tower (the white tower at the top of the pic) and another small office building cut out.

    Downtown Miller Heights is a large hub for corporation headquarters unlike Downtown Verona which mostly houses branches of large bank corporations.

    It is home to RLS Development Inc., Tsang Accountants, Arvis Insurance, and a couple of other video game and computer corporations.

     

    The third picture (bottom left) shows where the city started, the Highland Park subdivision. It offers houses for everyone, no matter if they're poor, middle class, or filthy rich. It's the perfect neighborhood for everyone of all ages.

     

    The fourth and final picture today shows "Consumer Center" and the apartments just south of Downtown surrounding Consumer Center.

    Consumer Center is the main shopping area in Miller Heights, where everyone gets their groceries in town. Consumer Center is home to the local BJ' warehouse and Food Lion as well as a Piggly Wiggly, Mill's Fleet Farm, a Verizon Wireless Store, and NorthPoint Mall, where all the CoOl aNd HiP kIdS gO tO.

     

    That's all I have for today, but Part 3 will be out soon. See you next time!

    Welcome to the final showcase in Kiel! Today we will be looking at High Square

    High Square can be described as a commuter city, with links to the major places in the area. It has an expansive suburb with numerous services, and a train station that is one of the most important interchanges for local routes.

    Hi everyody !! :ducky:

    It's been a very long time I haven't posted anything on Simtropolis, a lot of work, and I have to admit I haven't touched Simcity 4 that much since the last Krongans post...

    But in another hand I touched Cities Skylines a lot, and this game doesn't stop to amaze me. 

    So I decided today, after founding some pictures of a city I took months ago, that I could start a CJ with Cities Skylines pictures, just randomly, without any story.

    You have here 22 pictures of a city I made using the theme and mod of Arabian Nights.

    Here is the terrain: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=523833377&searchtext=arabian

    Here the terrain mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=574922953&searchtext=arabian

    And here the Terrain Themes Mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=574674741&searchtext=arabian

    I don't exactly know if you need this mod in particular but that's the one I use. Let's now have a look at the pictures :

    Thanks to all of you for your attention, I will try to keep going with the story of Krongans, but I will also keep publishing random Cities Skylines pictures!

    See you soon !!

    Here, we begin my new journal with the City of Rowlett.  When I was crafting this region, I unintentionally made a city that looks almost exactly like the one I live in, so I decided to make a recreation of it.

    577eeec248c2a_Rowlett-Sep.26001467934841

    I started with the "Signature Gateway" which is supposed to start construction soon irl. When it's complete irl, it will be home to some towers and midrises, along with entertainment venues.

    And it WILL have that sometime soon in the game. Much sooner than the real-life counterpart. And, hopefully when it is done, I can make BATs of the towers built. As long as I know how to by then.

    577eeeec39e3f_Rowlett-Sep.29001467934852

    Next, we have the Downtown district. It's home to the city hall, and a lot of family-owned small businesses as of now, but it's also going through construction to bring apartments and businesses there. When it's complete, it won't have buildings as tall as in the "Signature Gateway" area, but it will have decent accommodations for everyone.

     

    577eef2b22147_Rowlett-Mar.26011467936042

    Finally, we have the Harborside subdivision. It's much more luxury in real life than in the game. I actually LIVE right by here, so that how I know lol.

     

    Thanks for looking at this new CJ! I know it's not the best, but... I bet I can get better.

    P.S.

    Does anyone know how people like takemethere add 25 pics to their CJ but I'm stuck with only 3?  It wont let me put more than 4 Megabytes on here, and I guess one more pic would add to 4 mb... whatever.

  20. Entry 12: Back to Business (hopefully)

    So, today we're back in Antario where thankfully it seems that things are back to business. Today's entry is a bit of a mish mash of images without a real story behind them so let's just get right into it.

    Further growth in the forestry industry has led to a boost in interest in the area.

    (entry+12) more forestry growth.jpg

    Meanwhile, in the quiet suburbs, the higher earners continue to live in their cookie cutter tech homes.

    (entry+12) FHigh end suburbs.jpg

    In contrast to this, we have the hustle and bustle of the newer high-rise developments in the city itself.

    (entry+12) dense financial district.jpg

    Bridging the gap the old town continues to expand with its wall to wall buildings. A faster pace of life but not one as hectic as the above.

    (entry+12) panoramic.jpg

    As the sun goes down over the city, it comes to life with the bright bustling financial and high-rise district in the distance.

    (entry+12) night time panoramic.jpg

    Meanwhile, we haven't halted all work on the city, a lot of the roads have now become tree lined to further green up the city (and help with some noise issues).

    (entry+12) tree lined roads.jpg

    However it's not all roses, as this traffic jam shows coming into the town, were definitely going o have to look at improving our public transport network but we have a slightly more pressing issue.

    (entry+12) ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER JAM.jpg

    This is the most pressing issue in the form of a large amount of sewage now contaminating all of the waters around the city needing rather urgent attention.

    (entry+12) sewage culprits.jpg

    Though this is all for today. As usual, we'll leave you with this overview of the city. Just above the 50k mark so not much growth overall but hopefully the recovering timber industry will see this change.

    (entry+12) overview 51,908.jpg

    -FIX THE SEWAGE ISSUE!
    -Improve the lacking public transport network?
    -Take a look at streamlining the harbour area?
    -Expand on the forestry industry.
    -Financial district substantial expansion?
    -Get the city beautification projects finished instead of half was done?
    -Agricultural expansions
    -Housing expansions

    (OOC: Again sorry for the lack of updates. I am still working on this though so here's a tide over entry that shows the current state of the city but hasn't really got a whole lot of expansion in it.

    Cheers

    James)
