      Sorry it's still in mapper colors, and please, don't flame me for uploading it the way l have, but for the region to work it had to be hand drawn.
      To make it look "proper", open the city, save city and exit. please do NOT auto justify, there were some parts that, even after days and days of trying, l couldn't get the 4 corners to align.
      The region is, watching the loading screen so many times, l always wanted to make a city in similar terrain. It's pretty much a region of every type of terrain a person could possibly want to build on, from a huge mountain, to the canals of Venice, a canyon through the map that no mayor could pay to fill in, even Mesa's to deal with.
      This is my thanks to all of you who uploaded content to this site that l have judiciously raped of content for when l start playing this map myself. (still playing the Adelaide map l modded off here).
      had to mapper it because l tested it over half the map, hehehe, as you do, only way to flush it if your backup died.
      Hope all y'all like it.

      Okay, first of all, sorry if this comes across SUPER noobish haha. But is there actually a way to have bigger maps in SimCity 4? So larger than the largest maxis provided. I found a mod but it seemed an aprils fool joke? Also, sorry for all the forum posts lately! Love the active community, btw

      So recently I started working on a new mod: Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
      It's a building on the top of a mountain, looking over the Griffith Park. The front side is normal height on the ground level, but the back of the building goes lower and lower into the mountain, as can be seen on this image: 

      So right now I'm testing the model in game to see what's the best way to get the back part looking like that, I figured with ingame terraforming I could get a lot done. if I make the grid smaller than the actual building terraforming should not be a problem. I do however bumped into an other problem which I just completely forgot. Everything below ground level will have a dirt texture on it.

      How would you guys solve this problem? Is that dirt texture removable? and is there a way to make sharper mountains, just to make sure no ground will be poking trough the model anywhere?
      Thank you in advance.
