    Indeed, however after creating a region it becomes active; quitting to desktop and re-opening later will load the active region.

    Hi,
     
    Upon clicking the "Download" button, you will be presented with the option to download two files; you need to download them both.
    Head into SimCity 4 and create a new region; in this example, the region will be named "Eaton", then quit back to desktop.
    Copy and paste both of the downloaded images into Documents/SimCity 4/Regions/Eaton (replace Eaton with the name of the region you just created).
    Open up SimCity 4 again, and press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R. This will make a new window appear. Within the new region, you need to navigate to your Documents/SimCity 4/Regions/Eaton folder, selecting the greyscale image from the download entitled "Eaton_Jhipolito.jpg", and then click OK. The game will then render the region.
     
    If, for some reason, one of the above steps does not work, try using SC4Mapper to install your maps. Once installed, all you have to do is click "Create Region", select "Greyscale Image" format, and in the next window which opens, select the path to the downloaded "Eaton_Jhipolito.jpg" and also the downloaded "config.bmp" files.
     
    Hopefully that helps,
    Sam.

    Across the River
    The highway bridge crossing the river in my earliest city. It's become a bottleneck as the stretches of road either side are highways.

    Can't believe this is finally here, thanks so much for your hard work in eliminating such a terrible issue!

    Once you've subscribed to an item in the Steam workshop, you'll need to enable it in your game. To do this, click "Content Manager" on the ingame main menu, navigate to the "Mods" tab and then check the checkbox labelled "On/Off"

    Any Maxis Highway retexture mods (such as the HRS and the Asphalt Highway Textures mod) will need to be placed in a subdirectory of your Plugins folder. This should replace the textures of the elevated highway too. The folder should be prefixed with something like "zz__" to ensure it loads after the Network Addon Mod.
     
    For example, Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/zz__Retextures/file.dat

    Try putting the folder into the z___NAM folder in your plugins.
    If this fails, this mod is included in the NAM itself. Run a custom install, and under "Road Textures and Markings", select "Asphalt Textures for Maxis Highways"

    Here are a couple of tutorials on how to install a map using Terraformer or Mapper:
     
    Terraformer
    Mapper
     
    It's probably easier to install a map using Mapper; Terraformer's more for creating your own from scratch.
  10. Samerton added a post in a topic How to use RHW Efficiently and Effectively   

    About the concrete textures, (these are very early textures, the final things should look much nicer), but I've hardly done anything since. I'm hoping to start working on them again in the future, but as Maarten says, there are a lot of textures which need to be reworked.

    Ah, thanks. I hadn't thought of that for some reason I'll update the file description and the OP to make this point clear.
     
    No problem, Xander Dax, I'm glad it's all working for you now.

    Strange, that should work fine. Try adding a few more "z"s to the folder name, so it'll look something like "zzzzz_HRS_America"
  13. Samerton added a post in a topic Highway ReStyling Mod v0.4 - Development and Support   

     
    Apologies for the late reply, this is due to the plugin not being installed in a subfolder of Plugins, eg Plugins/zzz_Highway_Restyling_Mod/file.dat. Make sure it loads last to avoid conflict with any other highway retexture mods.

    Yup, those textures are something I've been meaning to patch, however I've not got round to doing it. I don't think I'll ever be able to get them to be perfect though, due to the way the Maxis Highway's textures are "assigned". I'll see what I can do

    I could be wrong, but I think that was part of an old mod made by Heblem, unfortunately I don't think it's available anymore as it was never completed.
