      Intermittent Hosted Content Errors   01/09/2018

      Our files host is experiencing service degradation atm. This means some STEX files will not download and will toss a 504 error. It could also mean avatars, attached images and such might appear to go missing. We apologize for the inconvenience. The best we can recommend if you get the file download error is to try again at a later time.

  2. Restaurant Pack 01

    These are a staple in my cities now, esp. the Coffee & the Sushi joints, as they seem to be the only 1x4 BATs I have available! (Note to other small CS$ 1x? BATters, plz make them growable on 1x4!) Much love, esp. for the Coffee place! (Hey, Starbucks needs SOME competition!)
    This little building has changed the way my Sims get around. It's a LOT less picky about what coastline is valid than the default ferries and it's a lot smaller so it can go in a lot more places. Whereas before I may put in 1 ferry per city (or coastline) now Sims are using them to get around without the congestion of land. Beautifully made, easy to use, visually interesting, and the addition of a bus stop makes it the (almost) perfect bat! 9.9/10! (The 0.1 would be if you added a subway stop too.)
  3. Landmark Converter Tool

    @Astrotheque You might also be interested in the 10,000+ buildings from the old EA Building Exchange. I've tossed the 650 mb zip file on a temporary hosting site. The linky is only good for a couple more days: https://we.tl/6pWoTNTExH In there you'll also find HTML copies of the pages I got from the Wayback Machine where I found all of them. Some pics are missing in the saved pages, but each building itself is intact.
  4. Version 1.0.0


    This is a small international airpor based in the "Manuel Carlos Piar International Airport" located in Guayana City, Venezuela. NOTES: - This Airport does not replace any airport in the game. - Unfortunately i did not manage to make it functional, however if it has effects on demand of your City.

    Looks great in my rural areas. Thanks!

    Haha, I'm sorry for spamming the front page. But we also need buildings like this!
  8. Swords of Qadisiyah - Iraq Victory Arch Saddam Era

    Does this landmark actually exist in real life?? Looks funky, and I want to see pictures of the real thing.
  9. Version 1.0.0


    Tariel-Kazuki Street Stalls v1 & v2 I recenty uploaded the lost original, which I have been using liberally for years. With some problems, though, that I thought would be nice to save new users from, like missing props ; also, the pieces were not lighted, which is my personal bugaboo. Last but not least, I would have liked the v2 pieces to have some indication of direction, therefore I added some SPOT arrows in my relot. So here is a new version of Kazuki’s lots, trying to solve those little problems. I just licked them up and lit them and gave them new menu icons. All Hail goes to Kazuki for making them in the first place. You don’t need the original but it’s here. Those are neutral lots, eyecandy only. _____________________ Dependencies : BSC_MegaProps_Gascooker_vol1.dat http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=397 NetworkAddonMod_Props.dat : In NAM 32 and up PorkieProps-Vol1.dat http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/11421-porkie-props-vol1-european-street-accessories/ PorkieProps-Vol2.dat : https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/11420-porkie-props-vol2-seasonal-street-trees/ RVTNightlights (included) SPOT_C-rc100.dat (for plopping directions) https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/24509-spot/ Tamorr_Family_Prop_v1.dat in Tamorr’s Resource 2.05 : http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/21940-tamorrs-resource/ wmp_power_props01.dat in WMP Power Lots : http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/26376-wmp-power-lots/

    It looks great except when I plop it, the greens & holes don't show up. So I'm guessing there's something wrong with the props in it (perhaps you forgot to put them in?) (I'm going to try installing the props pack to see if that fixes my problem. EDIT: It did! Could you check the props in the original file?) Otherwise it's awesome! Creative idea and gives some texture and interesting visuals to my cities. (I esp. like using it for beach cities, because they always seem to have a mini golf or 2.)

    Five stars again.
  15. Stationsstraat 32, Tilburg

    What can I say? You continue to amaze. Looks great, no dependency and your buildings really work in game. No brown boxes, no conflicts (as far as I can tell).
  16. Wilsonova 3, Prague

    Are you really one person?! How do you manage to produce this awesome looking stuff at light-speed?
  17. One Polar Tower

    Nice, I quite like this. Some constructive criticism would be the sign on top, and the textures, unfortunately BAT renders really brighten the textures, so you may need to darken some for the best results ( i'm talking specifically about the equipment on the roof) In any case, it's a solid effort, and you're definitely showing promise!
  18. Two Polar Tower

    It could need some better textures, and better modeling. Specifically the Pepsi ball should be rounder (There is no need for low poly buildings in SimCity 4) Columns are also a touch too bright. But that aside, it is very good for an early building, my first buildings weren't much better. Keep at it, don't give up!

  20. OOM - Ordinance Overhaul Mod

    First of all, I've got to admit this is a really thought out and well implemented mod. That said, I immediately instituted gambling and I realized the 5k income! Even at a price of +20% crime this is a bit excessive for my taste. I am well aware I can just use the separate files (thanks for that too!) but all I'm saying is how is 5k is balanced? My tax revenue (population and industry) needs to skyrocket to reach such heights of revenue usually. This renders balancing the budget, at least until very late in the game useless, even at Hard (don't get me wrong, I'm new to SimCity so I play Easy). Anyway, I believe an income of something like 500 Sim. would be more appropriate and balanced, or even 1500, for a bigger cash injection. There could also be 'levels' of the ordinances but I'm not sure the game engine even allows it. Again, awesome mod, just my 2 cents!
  21. Authentic Shipping Containers

    Great work! Quick question: if desiring a randomization of wear (as new containers are often mixed with old where im from), would it be possible to put in all 3 .dat's? Or would the last one to load win out? thx.
  22. Can I leave the files of the Super Light Asphalt Mod or do I have to just leave the "TIR-s3d fix.dat" to work properly?
  23. Spoorlaan 386, Tilburg

    Though they look amazing, I can't seem to find them in the game after downloading them.

        Yes, I did - thank you. I'm familiar with the forum software for the most part, but in the other forums I belong to, that option is *hidden* from public view.

        Maybe I am a little nuts for wanting consistency, but for me, it makes it easy. I even try to use the same icon. I wish, though, that all my other stuff had transferred over from the other forum software here. Being a member since, well, 2006 and the scorecard of a newbie doesn't look too good, eh?

      2. CorinaMarie

        I'm consistent among the two sites I'm on including the lack of a space in my name cause that's how it had to be on the other site at the time.

        Anyhow, are you saying some old posts of yours have gone missing from here and reduced your post counter? If so I can consult with our expert and take a peek behind the scenes. Just let me know what you believe is missing.

      3. adsii1970

        It's been so long since I've been here... I may have a faulty memory. I'm not too worried about it. The biggest problem I am having right now is searching for files for SC4. The STEX seems a bit clunky... or it could be I don't exactly know what I am doing yet.

      4. CorinaMarie

        Alrighty. If you do remember what you'd want me to look for I can do that. Otherwise I'll call that part done. *;)

        As for the STEX seeming a bit clunky that's most likely cause the search feature of this site is a bit clunky. There is an update coming that's supposed to fix this up really nice. I'll believe it when I see it. What I do is jump out to Google and use this:

        xxx site:community.simtropolis.com/files/

        Replacing the xxx with whatever I'm looking for such as power plant or cathedral or whatever.

      5. Cyclone Boom

        Hi adsii1970,

        Welcome back to Simtropolis. *:)

        Due to software limitations, it's true the site's search has long done and still does fall short of being a reliable tool for content discovery. As Corina explained above, filtering the results using Google really is a much quicker and more assured method.

        My post here mentions about what the future improvements will hopefully bring in the weeks to come.

      2. JP Schriefer

        The most common error when importing a .skp file to Gmax or 3ds Max is its version. You don't need to export the file as .3ds, all you have to do is save the file as 'SketchUp Version 8' type and it's good to go *:)

      3. lmca9000

        @JP Schriefer ill try that.  Thank you



      4. lmca9000

        @JP Schrieferit still does not work :( 

      5. Cyclone Boom

        Thanks for asking and also starting a forum topic. I'm personally not at all familiar with 3D modelling, so I'm really unsure what to suggest. I hope you find a solution to the problem. *:)

      Give something to the community and get praised; ask the community for something and get no response; why does this happen to me so often?

      1. Ganaram Inukshuk

        The question that was on my mind, up to the point where I finally went home to get my tooth fragments removed, was "how do I deal with a broken tooth?" which everyone misinterpreted as an aesthetic fracture on (presumably) the front teeth when it was a structural failure on the backmost tooth.

        This ain't an issue of how well I'll look when I smile in front of the camera, this is an issue of "how am I supposed to eat without breaking even more teeth?".

        The initial problem of figuring how extensive the damage is was resolved back on Monday (it's very bad; so bad that it requires replacement with an implant), but the fact that no one heard my problem or understood it properly still bothers me.

      2. Ganaram Inukshuk

        And this trend of being unheard has been happening for a while. I post random images of things that I work on in Blender and I get no response; I share my personal experiences on <insert controversial topic here> and I get no response; I ask how well my art style would be received by others and I get no response; I offer surprise art to people and I get no response.

      3. matias93

        maybe you are showing things you want to be commented about on somewhat hidden places? At least I have found your profile entries almost by casuality, checking profiles of interesting people on the forums, and many times they are somewhat old when I find them (yours and by other people), so I shy away from bumping them, assuming that the time to comment has passed.

        About the tooth thing, did your dentist say something about the overall health of them? Because if it was a problem with only one tooth, then there is not much more to do, but if there is some general issue, he or she should give you directions on some treatment. I'm somewhat familiarised with this because my uncle, even being very careful of his bucal hygiene, has very fragile maxilar bones, so their teeth fall off easily. I know this is not the case with you, but is just to make clear that there exist some (albeit unusual) causes for general tooth decay, that your dentist should be able to identify and treat.

        Whatever it be, I hope the results will be for the better and that you could be more relaxed about your health.

        (oh, and about the blender models, if you liked the program just bring the models up, the one on your profile is really great!)

      4. Ganaram Inukshuk

        It was on the ST Discord where I kept being left out, the issue is isolated to that one single tooth (it was a root canal, now it's busted), except for one tooth that needs a crown, all my other teeth are fine, and I've had the idea of modeling an entire freeway, but I've hit an art block on what to model and being so busy with assignments ain't really helping.

      5. matias93

        First, I'm glad the problem is indeed isolated!

        And about making just a tiny bit of the highway, I really like it; if you had done the entire thing, the earth crumbles at the bottom would have been invisible, and IMHO, they are what completes that model.
