This is exactly what was needed. Would have reduced many of my initial questions a few weeks ago. Great Job.

Some of the threads you lead to through the text are not in linky form though, intentional?

    Whoop.. did I miss a few? I'll do a check through this afternoon.

    Glad you guys like it :) If there's anything you feel I've missed going over, let me know and I can add a section on it.

    I've been playing Sim City 4 for a few months now, so glad I've stumbled across this! I have the various editors on download and can't wait to get exploring.

    Thanks for this guide, very, very helpful :D

    If you are going to BAT, run the "BAT Essentials" tutorial from the Omnibus. Every paragraph has some new, important point.

    Hi

    When clicking on Simcity link to get patches the page just comes up with an error. It makes me think that the page does not now exist.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Thanks

    I feel like I need to take a class for all this. I'll get it sooner or later. I see all the pics of all your cities and I want mine to look like that. Now!!

    This is a great site.

    Welcome to the great conversation.

    You will find this is a very useful thread. It was constructed initially to help a member who was "all at sea". Have fun.

    A Remarkable Guide and Introduction; Thank You, A Nonny Moose.

    I have acquired my SC4 + Rush Hour from Steam. What can I, and can I not, do with it...apart from uninstalling it and getting a pack from Amazon or similar?

    My Regards

    Well, if you find the SimCity 4.exe and check, you should find that you have build level 1,1,641 which is fully patched, diskless and ready to go. If you want to run without Steam's nonsense, make a new shortcut to the .exe, put it on your desktop and everything you see here about command line options applies. You don't have to log on to Steam unless you feel they deserve to snoop around in your system.

    Heres a tip for all newcomers:, when you start a new reigon, don't pick a random tile anywhere on the region, start at one corner with a small village on a 1 x 1 tile, then slowly expand outwards from it, i've tried this as an experiment and it's worked well; I've done 11 villages( o n 1 x 1 tiles) and 3 towns (on 2 x 2 tiles) and so far have almost 200k sims just in one small corner of the region!( i used a unmodified plains region for this.)

    What i've done as i'm going along is to build up road and avenue infrastructure in a grid pattern linking the tiles together, this helps the sims move about more freely.

    What i've done is to play each village and town up to 20 game years before moving on to the next so far the results have been quite satisfying

    why not try it, yourself.

    Great thread, much appreciated. I think it would be appropritate to include in the OP that the version number for the pre-patched purchasable download is 1.1.641.0 and not 1.1.640.0 :)

    I cannot thank you enough. As a returning player from the days when this game was brand new, I am astonished to see what the custom community has done and I felt extremely lost when I started to look around. Great walk-through to get up to speed and resources to start digging around for, at the very least, the most commonly used mods. I now feel less and less like I'm missing out on something big as, thanks to this thread and this community, it's all put out front.

        So i have decided to come back to this game since 2010?11?ish a long time ago. I have the game on stream already so i can play on win10. I remember the basic beginning but i dont know what i need to do to get to skyscrapers. And im also interested in mods and buildings. And is there a reliable way to do multiplayer yet and if not it there a stable way or something? I do know that NAM existes and i will play with it (also can i have that in multiplayer too if my previous question is possible). Is there anything i should have or need to know. thanks

        hola amigos, tengo un problema, sou un modelador novato, (muy novato), hace unos dias se me ocurrio empezar a modelar un estadio que hay en mi ciudad para ponerlo en el SimCity y todo estaba bien, logre exportarlo del sketchup al BAT, pero a la hora de renderizarlo y exportatlo para poder ser usado en el juego el BAT me salio con un error codigo 6, no se que hacer, no se si el problema es mi computadora o el modelo o ambos, quisiera que me ayudaran a solucionarlo o podria yo enviar el modelo sketchup a alguien del grupo para que el pueda terminar de renderizarlo y enchufarlo al SimCity. 
        Mi computadora es de muy bajas especificaciones y bueno hago lo que puedo con lo poco que tengo, gracias, aqui hay algunas imagenes.
