  1. No, I'm still new to the "mod scene". NAM sounds interesting. I will try it :-)
  2. Thank you all for your quick answers. #1 is solved! #2 - Very interesting responses. I will look into these sites and explore!
  3. Woops, it looks like I created this topic twice. My mistake. Is there any way I can delete the other one, so this can be the correct thread? :-)
  4. Hi all. I have two questions: 1. This thing about the automatic construction of streets when I zone is (for me) an irritating element of SimCity 4. These default streets doesn't fit into my overall plan and design for my city, so I always end up constructing roads myself before I zone small blocks step-by-step in order to avoid the appereance of these streets. Is there anything one can do in order to turn it off? 2. My second question is in relation to my first question. I live in Europe, and our landscape (both countryside and urban) doesn't fit well into SC4's landscape. As most of you know, European cities doesn't consist of square planned city streets, so if I would like to create something that looks more European (for instance with curved roads), I have to delete these automated streets everytime. So my question is: Does anybody know of - perhaps a mod - that can help me make the game look more European? I'm thinking about buildings, streets, city layout etc. My initial thought is that a mod like this is impossible since it would interfere directly with the .exe file. However, SC3K did a great job in creating European-styled buildings, so perhaps somebody has thought of something similar for SC4?
  5. Problems with SimCity 3000 on Windows 10

    It IS possible to run SimCity 3000 on Windows 10. I play it myself on Windows 10. At first it did not work, but suddenly it worked. No logic, no explanation here.
  6. Because I like the game of SC4. I have always liked it. The graphics are more appealing and it solves a lot of the small issues and bugs that I have encountered in SC3K over the years. And the SC4-community seems bigger with more fun stuff to do with mods and downloads. This thing about map size has just always been on my mind, and now I thought it was time to hear what others thought about it.
  7. Old Cities

    Very nice huzman! Thanks for the upload!

    I remember this one :-) It's a true classic in the SC3000 community.
  9. I understand your point. SC4 is an awesome game and it is not hard to see that it beats SC3000 on so many levels. However, I think map size is crucial. My goal is to create realistic looking cities, so they look about the same as they do on a satelite image. When I do this in SC4, I have to reopen every tile to render small 4x4 km blocks of the city. Hell, one block of 4x4 km could be a whole area only filled tract housing! Like this, I never get the full picture of my city. It never feels like one united entity. But maybe I should go and have a look at the game again. Maybe I have overseen the largest of the possible tiles? SC5 was a complete disaster IMO, for these very same reasons. It felt more like a miniature Transport Tycoon-game than a real city builder. It would never be possible in that game to create something like New York City for instance.
  10. SimCityHawk's real world based cities

    I have uploaded Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London + many more already on this page: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/category/43-cities-maps/ The reason why I haven't uploaded all my cities is that they are on another harddisk that I do not have acces to right now. But I'll get it in the nearest future ;-) EDIT: huzman - What is my reward, then?
  11. This is exactly what I'm talking about. 4x4 km isn't very large. And by combining different squares of 4x4 km, I do not get the feeling that I am building one large sprawling urban area (even though I know you get an pictured overview of the region in the game). It just still feels like I have 10+ independent maps that is only combined into one city in my imagination. I can't be the only one who thinks like this?
  12. Hello all. This subject is something I have thought about for a long time. I love all kind of city building games, but SC3000 has always been my favourite. Why is this? Well, other than some childish nostalgia I think map size has a lot to do with it. I have played a decent amount of SC4, but I have always been frustrated about the small map sizes. I know you can build large regions in SC4, but these regions consists of smaller independent maps that are rendered independently. This has always irritated me with SC4, since I never had the feeling that I was building something very large in one picture. I know the map size in SC3000 isn't very large either, but I do think it is easier to build a metropolis like city in one map in this game. Please correct me if I'm wrong. If there is something I have missed about SC4s map sizes, I would love to hear. SC4 is such a nice game, the graphics are awesome and way more realistic than SC3000. The community and downloads has always been bigger and better for SC4, so I would love to make a switch to the game, but I never think I will unless one can build large cities in ONE map. Do you guys know something that I don't?
  13. Hello all! I love SimCity3000. I have played it since I was a little kid back in 1999. During the years I have created many cities based on the real world. My goal is not to maximize population count nor to seek extreme land values. My goal is instead to create authentic cities that represents the real world in the best way possible. For instance, if a city has a reputation for a high level of crime, I will try and make it look so. I will upload the files on this forum in the future. Some examples of cities I have created in SimCity 3000: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, El Paso, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Vladivostock, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, Paris, Prague, Rome, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, The Hague, London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Reyjkavik. Some of these I have already uploaded under the ST exchange for SimCity 3000 maps and cities. I will upload more when I have more time on my hands....! Please, let me know what you think. And feel free to send me a message if you have a suggestion for a new city. Cheers!

  15. Introduce Yourself Here!

    Hello all! :-) I'm SimCityHawk. I have played SimCity 3000 since I was 6 years old back in 1999. Now I am a 24-year old university student, but I am still playing this game from time to time. I have created lots of cities in SC3000 during the years. Back in 2013 I had a lot of fun trying to recreate real cities of the world. I also created a YouTube-channel to show it to others(SimCityHawk), but somehow I forgot all about that. Yesterday I uploaded some of my cities on this webpage. I'm thinking about reuploading them again next week with better description and pictures, since I do not have a very good internet connection on this computer (I'm on vacation atm. :-)). I also have many other cities (real and fictional) on another computer at home, that I would love to upload if you guys are interested. SimCity 3000 means a lot to me. I have tried giving the other SimCity games a shot, but I always seem to have the most fun with SC3000. I don't know, but there is just something about this game that makes me relax and enjoy the moment. Maybe it has something to do with nostalgia - the music, the colours and the sounds of this game reminds me of good times. Anyways I'm glad I found this place. I'm thinking about beginning to work on building new cities again, so this forum seems like a good hangout for me. Cheers! PS. I'm from Denmark :-)
