  1. Rock stage

    I'll take a jazz concert please. Very original. Thanks
  2. Demand problems

    Didn't realize demand moves from one city to another. Fix one and a neighboring city has to take up any slack? Wow. Still learning. How best to keep things even throughout?
  3. NAM Issues

    After reading through this thread, I still think it's that Radical Ordinance crap. I was having the very same problem a few months ago. Pulled the Radical Ordinance mod and everything worked ok after that, (although i had to go into my ordinances and change everything that mod affected then go through my service buildings (meds, schools, etc) and re-fund those properly). Try that Silver and see what happens. I hope you understand the budgeting of SC if it does work again. You'll have to hire a book keeper if the game doesn't crash but you'll get through it. Don't give up. These guys are GOOD.

    Well alrighty then. Uninstalling, cleaning registry and we'll try again. I just download DIC version 1.1.4. Still says beta release but if you say so..... Thanks. I'll report back.
  6. Thanks Mike. Done and backed-up. I'd like to see an answer to Matt's question. This has really confused me also. WHAT IS the difference between the two folders?

  8. SC4 Tools: New Toys..

    Gotcha Doc. Maybe that will take care of all the error messages I've been getting with the Orgainzer also. Tells me I'm missing folders also.
  9. SC4 Tools: New Toys..

    OK Doc. First problem. DIC: I try to install and I get the message that says creating needed folders. It never creates them so the program never fires up. I followed the path where it was trying to put them and created my own. Still wants to create it's own folders and still a no go. XP did ask me if I wanted to unblock my firewall. I did. Sup?
  10. SC4 Tools: New Toys..

    WOW! I'm 're'-new to SC and this has been so extensively supported and seems to be a must have download that I'm gonna try it Doc. You've put in a lot of time with this I see. Looks like a lot of reading. Hope the wife and kids will leave me alone for a few hours tonight. Crossing fingers.
  11. Graphic problem in rush hour

    OK. Got another problem for you guys to solve. I get 'tearing' or 'ripping' whenever I move around in my city. The only way to get rid of this is to either zoom in or out. I'm running XP on a P3 with a Nivida 8200. No other graphics problems besides this. I changed my resolution and DX to 8 but still get the yellow lines and a torn display. Any help?
  12. No Trains!!!!

    I had the SAME problem Hyde till someone told me to reinstall NAM and use the 'Z' simulator. Look at Cap's screenshot above. You'd open (click) on the plus of Traffic Controller Files and select what simulator you want to use. I'm new to all this also so don't ask me what the difference is between different simulators... yet but 'Z' is working great for me. Have you read this thread yet? It's what got me 'railing'. http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=146&threadid=75070&enterthread=y Good luck and report back.

    Looks like the spot DayDay and Craig used to work next to in Half Baked. Or is it the place that the girls made Casey Kane run into?
  14. Annoying ordinance toggle

    Was just in chat looking for this answer and thanks Jez and Cap for responding. Now that ordinance is installed, new zones are going unused. New roads the same. Building on a city that has 250,000 and all 'old roads and zones' still in use. Played with ordinances to get folks to walking again with no luck. Saw that had to run for a couple of months to get game to transition and begin building again. Ran at 'fast as hell' for two years with no luck. Any help? Installed mod 2.0. Only other mod installed is the new NAM.
