  3. Apulia Italy

    This map contains the Apulia (where I live), Basilicata and Campania in Italy. It's my first map, if you're going to criticize, make it as detailed and useful as possible so I can work to improve. It contains a SC4M, a config.bmp.

  4. Blank map

    For those of you who need a clean slate to build your dream city, I have created an empty map. I have used Neidhards' Cities XL map editor. The map is based on the example map, so many thanks to him for both the tool and the map. This map has 100% connections, 100% fertile area's and 100% fuel. The map replaces the Mount st. Helens map. Copy both files from the archive to the paks folder and you're ready to go!

  5. Break County

    As promised, here it is. In fact, I even posted the Config file as the secondary screenshot. After this one's posted it'll be the same with the others too. All you have to do is right-click on it and hit save as and throw it in the Break County folder as a .bmp file. NOTE: You'll need SC4 Terraformer to have this region. But then again, who doesen't have it? Oh, and yes, I still obey my two region-making laws. Good amout of water (touching at least 10 pixels worth) and a desant amount of land in each city.
     
    Yeah, and sorry, but the config can't go perfectly, you're going to have to edit it a bit and revert it to bmp for it to work. It just has to blend when it goes jpeg.

  6. Central and East Macedonia Region

    ***Updated 16/09/2007: Fixed the sea bed depth near the map edges.

    This map contains the Central and East Macedonia Region in Greece. Includes Mt Olympus, the Halkidiki peninsulas and island Thasos, as well as lakes and major rivers. The terrain is mixed, with both plains (for easy development) and mountains (to challenge you), and a variety of water formations. So it is suitable for all kinds of development (industry, farms, ports, tourist etc) and has the potential of using all forms of transportation. In other words, a very playable map.
    For full size preview images click on the thumbnails below:


    Credits
    - Special thanks to beskhu3epnm for his advice and help, as well as for reviewing and testing this map.

    The upload contains the needed plugins for the import, as well as instructions for importing the map correctly, and combining the map with rock and terrain mods. Please read the instructions carefully.
    The map is quite large (13x7 large cities), and rendering may take between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the speed of your computer. The config.bmp consists almost entrirely of big city tiles.
    Enjoy!

    a map for cxl2011 (maybe also 2009)
     
     
    put the .patch into: C:\Program Files\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2011\!!Paks!!
     
    there is also a extra bulldozer in the .zip included to delete the trees
     
    this map replaces the small peninsula. Before you add this mod you should delete the city on this map.. or if you want to have some fun you should not delete it.
    And if you want the old map again, !delete the city! and delete the .patch

  11. Flat Coastal Map

    It's a very simple and almost flat map for Cities XL 2012, replacing the Peninsula. It has custom textures, lots of place to build, a coast for placing ports (or blueprints built on water, like the Alcatraz), and all resources almost everywhere. It has road/railroad/highway connections on two out of four sides, so you can haul a lot of cargo even before placing a harbor.
     
    It's basically like a quarter of a frisbee, almost perfectly flat in the corner opposite to the water, and gradually curving down towards the shore line, to meet the water in a gentle slope. It's still more than flat enough to build on in any point.
     
    There are no trees in water. In fact, the the shore was actually built around the existing trees. So you don't have to buldoze anything.
     
    It's inspired by the very flat geography of peninsulas like Denmark or Florida, or rather, coastal places on them rather than the whole peninsula, but it's not based on the actual terrain data of any particular place.
     
    To install, just unzip the file into your Paks folder. To uninstall, just remove it. (Removing it might, however, break any cities built on the custom map.)
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to match the height of the map it replaces, and arguably it's not even possible to both have two maps have the same height in any place AND have one be flatter than the other. I.e., it might or might not break existing cities built on the Peninsula. It is highly recommended that you start a new city if you want to use it.
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE 2: It has only been tested with Cities XL 2012. I have no idea if it works with 2011 or any other version.
     
    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big coastal city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

  12. Flat Square Island

    It's a very simple, square-ish and almost flat map for Cities XL 2012, replacing either BigIsland_01 (The Tropical Island) or BigIsland_02 (The Two Sisters) or both, depending on which files you unpack. The terrain looks better on the former, but the latter is probably a more useful replacement.
     
    It has custom textures, lots of place to build, a coast all around for placing ports (or blueprints built on water, like the Alcatraz or oil platform), and fertility everywhere. The Tropical Island version also has oil everywhere. Both have a fair bit of vacation areas from the start. Like the default islands, it has no road or rail connections anywhere, so you WILL need ports and airports.
     
    It has no ground water by default in the normal game, just like the normal island, BUT if you use Neidhard's resource enabler ( http://www.file-upload.net/download-2360525/mod_requied-for-new-maps.rar.html ) then you'll have underground water reserves everywhere too. It's up to you exactly how much you want to cheat, basically. Personally I'd think an island would get plenty of rainfall to have water for its people, but you can also take it as just a desert island and import your water if you prefer it that way. Or you can use the sandbox mod buildings to give you water.
     
    The same resource enabler will also give you oil everywhere on The Two Sisters replacement map, if you use that version.
     
    Either version is a flat and gently rounded square, almost perfectly flat in the middle, and gradually curving down towards the shore line, to meet the water in a gentle slope. It's still more than flat enough to build on in any point.
     
    It is not based on the altitude data of any real place. It's just an artifficial island with as much place to build as possible, while not having any hard corners or perfectly straight edges, so it basically still looks somewhat natural. If it helps, you can imagine it as an artifficially built island, like Dubai has been building, except bigger.
     
    There are no trees in water, nor in fact even on the beach.
     
    I have reduced the ground texture and shadow map to 2048x2048, down from the default 4096x4096, since it seems to run smoother on my computer that way and it's not like a flat map really needs more detail. And the game's terrain multi-texturing makes it look ok up close too anyway.
     
    To install, just unzip one or both .patch files from the .zip file into your Paks folder. To uninstall, just remove it. (Removing it might, however, break any cities built on the custom map.)
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to match the height of the map it replaces, and arguably it's not even possible to both have two maps have the same height in any place AND have one be flatter than the other.

    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big island city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

  13. FlatDesertMap

    It's a very simple flat map for Cities XL 2012 that replaces the Rocky Desert, with a custom texture. Basically you have the whole map available for building whatever you wish.
     
    Furthermore, I reduced the texture and shadow map to 2048x2048, down from 4096x4096, since it seems to run smoother on my computer this way. And besides, it's not like a flat desert actually needed more detail.
     
    It has oil everywhere, as well as tourism everywhere.
     
    It has no water or fertility by default in the normal game, just like the normal desert, BUT if you use Neidhard's resource enabler ( http://www.file-upload.net/download-2360525/mod_requied-for-new-maps.rar.html ) then you'll have underground water reserves and fertility everywhere too. It's up to you exactly how much you want to cheat, basically. You can imagine that it's an otherwise fertile area, if only someone pumps water from underground to irrigate the crops, or you can take it as just a desert and import your food and water. Or you can use the sandbox mod buildings to give you food and water.
     
    To install it, just unpack the zip file into the Paks folder. To uninstall it, just delete the mod file from the Paks folder. (It might however break any cities built on the modified map.)
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE 1: No attempt has been made to have it at the same height as the original map, and arguably it's not even possible to exactly match the height everywhere AND be flatter than the original. The two are mutually incompatible. I.e., it will likely break any existing city that's built on the Rocky Desert map. It's highly recommended that you start a new city if you want to use it.
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE 2: It has only been tested with Cities XL 2012. I have no idea if it works with 2011 or any other version.
     
    Note 3: yes, I know it's not some great achievement. It's not the best map out there, nor particularly hard to make, nor the most realistic, nor anything else. I just wanted a flat map to build a great big Las Vegas style city on. Maybe someone else can use it too. Or maybe not.

    Hey all, this is another map that has truck loads of resources.  It replaces 'The Lake Lands'.  The reason for that is that I couldn't get it working on other maps so this one had to do.

  17. HNP Mount Everest By Moganite VER A


    New Horizons Productions

    NHP Mount Everest Version A
    By moganite

    This is a 16 bit map of the mount Everest region
    The A version of the Mount Everest region has dimensions of 40x 40 tiles There is also a second Version of the same region covering 48x48 tiles and includes the 5th highest mountain that region is pending aproval to upload as it just exceeds the 10 MB limit.

    This resgion has been smothed heavily as there is a lack of data nd interpolation was used to fill the gaps. There is also evidence of blockiness due to a lack of accurate data in this region. Both of these are the result of the steepness of the area and its glacial nature over signifigant portions of the map.

    The Everest A map has the slightly larger elevation range and some of the land is below water the water level is 3000 m above sea level.

    Trivia
    This region is the highest overall on the planet and the lowest points on these map are more than 3 km above sealevel and almost entirely above the treeline at this lattitude. Sitting on the Chinese Nepalese border this mountain is the highest point on land and is sacred to the local tibetan peoples and refers to as Chomolungma. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first ascent of the montain in 1953.

    There are two maps to replace. You can replace the Peninsula and the Grand Canyon.. look pictures.. put the .patch into the pak folder of your Cities XL 2011. Maybe it is compatible with Cities XL 2009.
     
    On the center island there is a lot of tourism. on each island there is one resource.

  25. Mount Kaputar By Moganite 16 Bit Version


    New Horizons Productions

    NHP Mount Kaputar
    By moganite

    This region is a revisit of the Mount Kaputar region near Narrabri some portions of this map May appear in the Narrabri region also.

    Its dimensions are 38 x 38 km

    Trivia

    This area is on the edge of the Namoi river valley about 40 km east of my hometown. It is extremely rugged terrain and is a national park with some agriculture, mining and forrest in the foot hills. As far as i know this mountain is the highest point west of the great dividing range at 1510 m above sea level.
