  1. Show us your: Failures!

    I think this will be a fun one. Show us projects you started yet ultimately failed. I'll start. The first time clicking like a madman has failed me.
  2. I am unable to install the latest version of the Network Addon Mod! It tells me that I need the Night Lighting Patch 1.1.640.0 and it tells me that it will bring me to the download page of the Night Lighting Patch, except it doesn't. It brings me to the download page for BAT ( Building Architect Tool). It does not bring me to the patch it tells me that it will bring me to. Where can I find this patch because the link that opens is obviously not the patch.
  3. Abrupt ending

    It's a sad moment. :(( hard drive failure. no backups. everything lost
  4. If you click on it, you can't click off it. When you click 'bye now' it stays forever. You can change what it reads in the box though. The only thing you can do once you click on it is hit ctrl/alt/del and restart sim city 4, which takes about an hour to do!
  5. Hi folks I have an issue which cropped up a little while ago in another region that I played that is now happening in a new one I've recently started for my CJ. Whenever I load a city up, it frequently fails to load all of my plugins, so that items are missing in the menus. This has so far only affected non-Maxis lots, and I've seen both ploppable and also a few growable Industrial lots affected. The result of the plugins that fail to load is a transparent base texture - they appear normal except for the missing base - no brown boxes, no missing props, etc. The terrain texture beneath is visible. The unfortunate outcome is that the game now is largely unplayable with plugins as it's now a lottery as to which will load up! And if ones I've already used don't, then I get the transparent base texture. The problem has only come about since I started playing SC4 again recently after a couple of months away from it. In that time, I can think of two things that have changed that might have caused this. 1. I installed NAM 32 2. Windows has updated Vista in this timeframe. The fact the lots still load and the props are still there leads me to believe that it isn't a prop pox. And I don't think it's my laptop struggling to load plugins - it could be, but I have only installed NAM 32 and a handful of other new bits and pieces since I started playing again. Has anyone else had this issue, and if so, is there a solution? Is it Windows demonstrating their increasing inability to release stable software updates? As an aside I've noticed my laptop has various problems after I exit SC4 now, varying from programs not running at all, to resolution and display issues, certain applications not working, Windows Explorer not working, all at different times. This makes me think it could be the Windows updates, but if that's the case then it can't just be me having these problems. Admittedly there can't be many people running SC4 on Vista these days, I'm one of the last of a dying breed! But there must be others on Vista that might know about this perhaps? I've attached some pictures below to illustrate the problem. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Here, the market stalls have failed to load: You can see the missing texture on Matt325b's Courthouse here: And finally the base textures for the church and bus stop are missing here. It affects transit-enabled lots the same as standard lots.
  6. So just earlier, EA's servers went offline for a moment and afterwards there was a small rollback. Now this rollback at first didn't seems like it did much… except for the fact that my avenues turned into tunnels. Yeaaaaah…. So I tried to disregard this and I tried to make more avenues, but the problem is that either the avenue doesn't connect or it won't build. My friends and I found this hilarious the first couple minutes, but I really can't do anything now. My dilemma now is, should I keep these avenue tunnels or try to fix it. I kind of don't want to get rid of them because I think that this is very rare. So yeah. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ UPDATE: I tried making a new city similar to this one and got rollbacked again. Guess what happened next. MORE TUNNELS! xD I love EA. *ahem* -Rac
  7. Me and my friend screwed up our sandbox cities horribly and want to destroy them with a meltdown. How does one do this without mods or stuff. Please Help!!!!!

    Today I show you Simcity logics: We have a big industrial area with many jobs.... ....a big highway (for only 6000 inhabitants!!!) without any traffic jams.... ....many commercial areas..... ....AND NO JOBS THOUGH-.- It has nothing to do with the entry at all, but could you recommend any low wealth service-commercial BATs? i only have gas stations^^ Replies Please comment my last entry though, I will reply to you in the next one, promise... pcwhiz24: Thanks for the compliments, I use the Pyrenean terrain mod. Edit: In the last entry I used the VIP girafe larches, VIP girafe subalpine firs, VIP girafe Maples and VIP girafe Lindens
  9. Damnit Moments #1

    Just a filling today. So I hope you all know these "Damnit" Moments we all have time to time? I tried to build a small, lovely town with industrial zone in the north and a rail and -bus system. Look what i got: I didn't even want to get mid wealth! That's the reason why I like mmp-ing, you'll never have such problems. Anybody knows how I can get rid of that? No demand mods installed and not even a huge demand for mid wealth at all. have a nice evening though
  10. Why do all the Ice Cream Truck UDI Missions Fail? I have placed 3 elementary Schools (2 regular, 1 large), and have received the 2 Ice Cream Truck Missions. I drive them to their school destination (outlined in red) and wait there, and nothing happens. It never registers that I am at the destination, then fails the missions. Has anyone else seen this kind of trouble with Ice Cream Missions? Is there a trick to it that is different from other missions? Does it matter if you have the ice Cream Truck music on or off? How long must you wait in front of the school? Must you hit any other buttons when you get there (like with some fire truck missions)? Any help would be appreciated. Thx!
