  • Auto Installer Directions


    Some people do not know that with an auto installer provided with some of the downloads on the STEX, you can select the folder where you want it to be installed in. Using the default location provided by the installer can ruin your personal method of organizing your plugins. Sometimes certain authors also have their own way of creating certain folders in the plugin folder during the automatic installation for their own files. Luckily, if you do not like this, it can be redirected. Here’s a brief note on how to do this:

    When you download a file with an auto installer in it, run the installer and click next like you normally would until you run into a screen similar to this:



    If you are in the right screen you should see a bar with a directory where the files will be installed, like with me in the picture above marked in red. If you want it to go to a different location, simply select the button with the three dots on it or whatever button you might have next to it. You will get a screen like the following where you can browse your directory:


    Now simply select the location where you do want your files to go in the directory by expanding the tree to the location of your preference. After you've done all of this, you can go to your chosen folder and see if all the files are there.  Also, never forget to read the enclosed readme if there is one because it can provide essential information as to where to install your plugins.

    • What building is it? I might be up for it
    • I'm going to bump this because I need help also, but have some more insight to provide. I installed GMax, then tried to install BAT and it keeps telling me that SC4 Deluxe does not appear to be installed. I have the original CDs for SC4 Deluxe but they have been scratched horribly and since it is a pain in the butt to find locally, I bought the Digital Download from Origin...because at the time I did not want to order it online and wait for shipping what/not. Here is what I know, and tried although it has still all been unsuccessful.  I uninstalled SC4D entirely due to the "Origin\" install folder, and i cleared out any leftover data from the "Origin\SC4" install folder and also the "MyDocuments\SC4 folder".  I updated the settings in Origin so the Default Installation folder would be Maxis\ instead of Origin\.  So when I reinstalled it, now it is in "Program Files (x86)\Maxis\".  Then I tried to install BAT again, but still got the same error.  For giggles, I uninstalled it and wiped the folders again and launched the install from the CD.  Here is what I noticed.  While the CD installs to "Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe", Origin installs it to "Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition".  So after a couple minutes, as usual, the install crapped out due to the damage on the CD which I expected.  I cleared the folders again and did another reinstall from Origin.  After it completed, I renamed the "SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition" folder that Original created to "SimCity 4 Deluxe" to match where the CD would have installed, tried to install BAT, and still got the same error. At this point, I am at a loss.  I figured that folder rename should have solved the problem, but I guess it goes deeper.  Maybe instead of looking for a file or folder on the hard drive BAT is actually looking in the Registry?  I will try and play with that later, but was wondering if any of this could bring light on the problem for someone here to identify a resolve.
    • Maybe you can post your questions in your BAT thread or the BAT Troubleshootin thread instead of opening a new topic every time. About your question, my approach would be just to try out different textures I can find on the net, maybe game related textures create most this effect you are seeking.
    • Cool building! So, is that name indicating that the overhang will be over a highway passing under it?
    • Very unique! We need more buildings in the game that aren't orthogonal squares and rectangles.
