  1. SimCity 3000 Unlimited Rendering Kit

    This is one of the extra files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Inside the zip are the SC3_URK.exe file, some .bmp templates, and the all important SC3URKreadme.txt.  Place the SC3_URK.exe in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps folder. The Read Me file is rather important for this tool.
    In the pics I've used the A1 Clongowes Castle for the example. Basically you load a building, extract 4 .bmp files, edit those in your favorite imaging program, and then reassemble them into a building or landmark. This looks like a very useful tool for peeps with talent. (Unlike me who just dropped in some coloring haphazardly to show that it does work.) The Read Me mentions other stuff you can do. Might be a good idea to read it.

  3. Landmark Converter Tool

    This is one of the extra files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. Inside the zip is the LandmarkConverter.exe file.  Place it in your C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps folder. There is also a Readme_LandmarkConverter.txt file in the zip which explains how to use the tool. (Tho it's really easy so just refer to that if something goes goofy.)
    I've used @Yohane Architects's Golden Coast Apartments building as the sample in my pics.

  8. John Hancock Center, Chicago, Illinois USA

    This is one of the extra landmarks @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. The original file (landmarkpack3-sc3k.zip) contains an installer. I've tested that with my GoG version of the game on XP Pro. It places two files in the C:\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps\PlugIn\LandmarkPack3 folder. The files are LandmarkPack3.DAT and LandmarkPack3.PIN. Note: This also contains the Chrysler Building, New York, New York USA.
    Under the download button are the original zip and one I made with the two files already extracted. You only need one or the other. I'm including the second one just in case the installer doesn't work for you.

  10. Plain SimCity 3000 Stuff

    Important: These files are for the Original SimCity 3000 game.
    Note: These do not work with the Unlimited / World Edition of SimCity 3000.
    This one is a pack of files @catty-cb has maintained on her site and now has kindly passed over to us here at Simtropolis for hosting. I've zipped these into one download file. It contains the following:
    atlantis_condo.zip bullfrog2.zip landmarkpack3-sc1.zip landmarkpack3-sc2.zip landmarkpack3-sc3.zip pantheon-sc3.zip PCGamer.zip SC3_Plug-In_1.zip shamrock.zip These files are for the Original SimCity 3000 and do not work with SC3K Unlimited / World Edition. I'm including them on the STEX in case anyone would want them. The included zips are in their original format as passed on to us here at Simtropolis. I considered installing my plain game from disc and testing them, but then wondered: why? So, here they are just for the sake of completeness.
