About This File
a map by: blunder
This map is in .sc4m format and requires either Terraformer or Mapper to import.
1. Navigate to your Documents/SimCity 4/Regions folder and create a new folder with your desired region name
2. Copy+paste the config.bmp file into the folder you just created.
3. Open SC4TF, open the new region, import the .sc4m file, save and quit.
4. You must open and save each tile for it to display your terrain mod instead of the terraformer/mapper elevation color overlay.
Zurich and environs are located in switzerland.
The compressor tool was used in terraformer because the real shorelines of Lakes lucerne and Zurich are about 30m apart in elevation; in this map they are 4m apart. Also, the bottom of the valleys below the surface of lake Zurich have consequently been flattened. Although this loses some reality in the valley bottoms, more flat land is gained for building in a manner not too unrealistic; a decent trade in my opinion.
This huge map is 72km x 80km and made from satellite data. It contains both a standard and a custom config.bmp, please choose only one.
Map made using satellite data, image editing software, and drunkapple's invaluable advice.
(I HIGHLY recommend using the high altitude + snow installation of Gobias' Alpine terrain mod found over at sc4d)
