About This File

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.

You will notice this file is not my creation and credit for keeping it alive goes to catty. This STEX entry will stay under my name tho since I'm in charge of the new SimCity 3000 Sub-Forum and I'll be the one to reply to comments or questions.

Thanks for making this distinction.   Different terms have been used to refer to the game editions, and I used the 'Original' graphic in my city upload intended for the 'Unlimited' edition (which I'll now edit).   So 'Original' and 'Unlimited' refer to 'SimCity 3000' and 'SimCity 3000 Unlimited/World' editions respectively?   So when we refer to SC3K that could be either?  Or should we abbreviate as SC3KU to distinguish 'Unlimited' from 'Original' SC3K?

It does in Cori-speak. I'm making this up as I go along. *:lol:

Seems to me tho unless clarified anyone referring to SC3000 or SC3K prolly means the GoG version which is the Unlimited / World Edition. I just cannot image anyone would not be playing the later, better one.

Right, I went and looked at the actual filename of the .exe and its SC3U.exe, so there we go, aren't those programmers smart?   As I am familiar with the Cori-dialect,  I must say, that resolves my 'confuzzlement'? 

SC3U: SimCity 3000 Unlimited --at least as per the GOG distribution for Windows.

      Hi guys,
      I just bought SimCity 3000 from GOG. The problem is I have yet to actually be able to play it due to what I can only assume is a display glitch of some kind.
      The game opens in windowed mode, which I'm fine with - I lose track of time playing sim games so seeing the computer clock is a positive for me. No matter what I try and do to change the screen resolution, though, the actual game continues to open in a much smaller window. I have attempted to change the screen resolution both in the game and by editing the link path and all that does is change the game window size. The game itself continues to run at the same resolution, surrounded by massive black bars. Changing compatibility settings or trying to launch in fullscreen just seems to cause the game to crash on load, and I'd rather figure out how to fix the issue with the windowed version anyway. Does anybody know what's causing this issue? It's playable right now, but not much fun.
      I've attached a screencap of what I'm looking at every time I load. I've tried asking on the GOG forums too but have had no response in 24 hours and still don't know what to do about this. I'm using Windows 10 version 1709 (OS Build 16299.192) and have a high-def screen on my laptop, which is partly why the window looks so ridiculously small to begin with... and trying to override high-def scaling to see if that would fix it also causes the game to crash on load.
      Thanks for your time.
