City Has Vanished

6 posts in this topic Last Reply

I recently loaded my region up and was surprised to find a large hole staring back at me from the middle of the map.  The City has completely vanished - And I don't mean just the saved information, I mean it's a big hole that I cannot access.  Redoing a city is easy, but I can't even get into it to redo it.  Please tell me this is a common problem with an easy fix.

Well, SLagonia, it is kind of common as these can usually be caused by save errors, crashes in the game, e.t.c.

Luckily, Windows 7 (and Vista) have an easy tool to recover your file.

Right click your Region Folder (I assume you are talking about SimCity 4)

[7] click "Restore Previous Versions"

[Vista] click properties

[-] Click the "Previous Versions" tab

After that all you have to do is choose either the hour, minute, day when u last opened your city with no problem.

Note: Using the Disk Cleanup tool in windows may cause your restore files to be deleted.

  • Do I need to do that with the entire region or will it work on the file for that one city (the file is still there - Hell, it's still affecting the other cities around it, it's just vanished).
