  1. PG-13 OK No comment. Only Commitment. Get some.
    Excellent glass walls, reflections, and night-lighting. This is a landmark landmark.

  4. If by policies you are referring to 'ordinances' check the list linked below as many of them have negative effects as well as positive effects which impact mayor rating. Turning 'all' of them on will more likely result in lowered mayor rating. Be selective and strategic.
  5. Most of what I'm finding seems to be tables where the cells are out of order, and when I look at the source code of the HTML pages, they're quite messy with the code disorganized and lots of white spaces. I wonder if running the pages through an HTML Tidy kind of program that organizes the code and indicates HTML code errors would do for most of the 'borked' pages?
  6. This File Page needs some fixin'
  7. I'm working on a region demonstrating the 4 tilesets in SC4, and also using RCI models made by a few of the most prominent and active BATers on ST today. I've set the large tiles up in the same regional configuration as in SC3U. The central tile will feature all 4 sets and some interesting tall buildings.
  8. That's a serious piece of Art, Cori. It appears to have bent time-space in ways not yet theorized. Its like looking through a cave opening into an alternate universe.
  9. So its the same issue as with multiple file uploads, multiple thread creations or multiple CJ entries by one person, and I agree, there should be a limit to one person's ability to overwhelm the front pages. Its kind of the same as 'bumping' in a thread making it appear more as a personal blog than a community communication and sharing. It makes it look like the site is less active than it is with fewer contributors, and it reduces the enjoyment of the variety of persons and their works being shared. I'd rather see a front page with 20 different members pictures, threads, CJ entries or files at any given time.
  10. It looks to me like the pictures referred to are New Images that were posted in a SimCity 4 album. When you add images to the front page of the Gallery you have to select a category. These pictures are by one person who most recently created an album in SC4 category. There does seem to be an overlapping purpose between the City Journals and Gallery albums. A CJ can just as easily be used simply to display a series of pictures as like an album. An Album could also be used similar to a CJ in adding text and descriptions or a storyline. It seems like the two could be consolidated in some way to reduce clutter. Maybe the gallery should be managed by the mods somewhat similar to a feature area of selected CJ entries for their community value, and the CJ area for members to publish their presentations. Otherwise the gallery seems to be being used as a storage space by members for their pictures. ST is not exactly a free file storage site, its a file sharing site. I think what we upload to ST is supposed to be for community purposes. The CJ section maybe should be organized like the Gallery with subcategories for the different city-builders featured on this site.
  11. I wonder if the problem with the seasonal trees has anything to do with the game settings, but I'm not exactly familiar with using timed props. If I understand correctly you have both XP and Win 8.1, each with a copy of SC4? If you get all the plugins organized, then maybe check that the 'graphic option' settings are the same? Let us know how it goes.
  12. Right Click on the shortcut (or the exe file) and open the 'Properties' menu at the bottom of the list. You'll see the 'Compatibility' tab. From there you can change which mode Windows uses to run the program. As @rsc204 pointed out to me, generally SC4 will run OK without 'switching' to another mode from Win 8.1. On my machine its true I run SC4 without using a compatibility mode. ^ See @CorinaMarie picture above

    The city-building "urge" goes a long way back to childhood for me too. You'd probably enjoy a tour of a school of architecture as I did. The labs are full of models of practical applications, somewhat similar to your display.
  14. I noticed it earlier today, and good choice, including both terms "Cities and Maps". There's a lot of cities and maps uploaded now to fill out the subcategory. Maybe Gog.com can donate some hard drives for the promo. The small file size of the city files makes SC3U a more easily shareable game experience. Even if buildings or landmarks are missing, the bright orange areas are easily to see and re-zone.
