  • Aw, sweet! These are my jams, yo!

    The SimCity 2000 music is especially nostalgic to me...you could say those are my 'jams'. I'm proud of how I managed to capture their original sound (mostly) into MP3 files.

    This is great. I love the music from SimCity games, although I have only been able to hear the music of SC3k and SC4. SC2k and the original SC were before my time. I plan to play them one day, though.

    Anywho, thanks for uploading these. The music of these games is a part of my life. :)

    The first two SimCity games are practically abandonware; you shouldn't have any trouble finding them one way or another. It's worth it, too. Glad you like the collection!

    I tried the DOS version of SC2K last summer. But my god! the music, while sounding like the SC2K music files in the first collection, was awful! Is there a way to have the "good" sound (like the Mac version) in the DOS version?

    I don't believe so, not unless you mute the in-game music and use an external media player.

    These songs bring back "memories" of cities I made when I first got the game. :lol: But, do you really need to upload them online—or the SC4 songs, at least—if we can just locate them in our program files folder? Or are you doing this just for convenience?

    Oh, Thank You, Biff ...

    Very useful for someone ...

    But I like listen another music from distant Media Center - FM ROCK Wave as a rule ...

    All SC4 connected music is a brake to SC4. I haven't any music in my game ...

    Thank You and Good Luck ...

    Convenience. The included music files in SC4 aren't named. :P

    No problem. It's the least I could do for the music.

  • Thanks for this! I just love the music in Sim City 3000 and it brings back some really nice memories! :)

    You are certainly welcome. I like the SimCity 3000 (and Unlimited) music too; it's some of my favorite in the series. 3000 as a whole is sort of underrated IMO.

    On a related note, I used to mute every song but the classical jazz music back when I was playing 3000 (not Unlimited unfortunately) in my younger days because I didn't like any of the others. I eventually got sick of the jazz and muted that too. Pity my formerly narrow tastes.

  • I also once had a copy of SC3K Unlimited (my first) with no working music or sound effects. As you might expect, it detracted from the game significantly.

    (Bump.)

  • I was just playing SC4 with the music on today. I went into settings and chose the songs, myself. :lol:

    Excellent.

    This is really nice! Is this Sim Mars soundtrack in there somewhere?

    I'm afraid not.

    Anyhoo, I think it's time for some download statistics! I uploaded the collection on the 20th of March, and it's the 31st as i'm writing this. Part 1-1 has had 22 downloads, while part 1-2 has had 17. Part 2's had 27 downloads, Part 3 had 17 downloads and Part 4 has had 29 downloads, the most of them all. That's 112 downloads in total!

    I am glad you liked it. As of April the 7th (the date i am typing this) the section with the 2000 SE and SNES version music still has the most downloads...45 of them to be exact. Quite the number of downloads!

  • 5 days later and Part 4 now has had 53 downloads. It's still the most popular part, beating out Part 2 (with the SC3KU music which is very good) which has only 44 downloads.

    (shameless bump)

    I've downloaded all parts and plopped them on an mp3 cd for in-car entertainment (yes, I am that sad)...

    ...together with my self-produced collection of Lemmings! and Oh No! More Lemmings! music (Acorn version, mp3'd)...

    (Even sadder?!)

  • biff, where do I put the music for in-game use?

    There are concise instructions in the Readme file in Part 4, which now has 60 downloads. They should get you moving on the right track.

    I think I should tell you guys that I posted this collection on another forum at the same time as I did here. That explains the large number of downloads, at least.

    Wait... this list isn't as comprehensive as you think. The SimCity 3000 music is missing! Biff has the music from SimCity 3000 Unlimited (the expansion) but not the original.

    I have found the music. Sadly you have to download each one separately... there is no zip file containing them all of em. However, it is quite well worth the effort!

    Feels a little strange playing SC4 with this music in the background :P

    Despite the fact that it says SC3KU/World music, it actually contains all the music from SC3K (since Unlimited was a bit like SC4Deluxe in being a standalone game with both the original game and added content included)

    Actually, Biff's download is more complete, since it includes "SIM Broadway", which for some reason was {removed from the SC3KU release}.

    There were however some additional songs on the disk (that played when the autoplay window loaded) that aren't in any of the downloads. I lent my copy of Unlimited to someone, so I don't have access to them at the moment.

    Also, I just would like to say "Thanks!" for converting the MIDI files from the older games. Now I can listen to them without the delay in loading MIDIs that seems to happen in newer version of Window! :party:

    Keep it fresh! :thumb:

    No problem; I'll make sure to do that.

    I'll keep that in mind. I wanted to keep the thread up top so that more people might find it, but I suppose I'll have to wait for actual replies now (or at least reply with something interesting/an update). No problem.

        Hello,
        My idea on mod listing is failed because it has a fatal flaw: it's not hassle-less. So, I'll redefine the existing Modpacc. The new Modpacc uses a LEX Deptracker-like system, but it's completely decentralized (even at the specification except for approving team but it's elected by the community). It's more reliable than the mod listing system and less expensive than the package management system. And, it's legal both for creators and site owners since site owner can opt-in to be integrated (meaning opt-out site behaves like an external site on LEX) and no ads circumvention involved.
        The spec is coming soon but suggestions are welcome. There are 2 versions of spec offered, HTML and PDF. And, it's open source, meaning you can suggest changes on the spec easily and approved by the rolling approving team elected based on trust and contributions but still democratic.
        Thanks.

        Hello,
        Over the last few weeks I have been developing a multiplayer region system for SimCity 4, which I have named Poppy Multiplayer Regions (PMR). Now that it has reached the Release Candidacy stage, I would like to share it all with you.
        You can register for an account and download the second release candidate of the PMR Launcher at http://getpmr.com/
        Of course, you probably do not trust programs from unknown developers. So, I have also provided the Python source code at https://github.com/cizmic/pmr-client for you to review and run.
        What makes PMR different from Dropbox regions?
        Primitive multiplayer regions have been explored in SimCity 4 for quite some time in the form of shared Dropbox directories. While they worked most of the time, these regions had three major flaws:
        No city permissions. There was no real way of protecting one's saves from others, since Dropbox regions were typically configured to handle permissions only at the directory level. As a result, most regions were strictly private. Adjacent save overwriting. In every save operation, SimCity 4 doesn't just modify the current tile, but also the adjacent tiles. Because of this, it was previously impossible for two players to play in adjacent cities at the same time. Complicated setup. This isn't such an issue for powerusers, but configuring SimCity 4 to run from the Dropbox path was tricky for many newer players. PMR overcomes all of these issues by having a server and launcher that are specifically designed for SimCity 4 regions. I have attached a diagram that shows how the saving system allows for city permissions and adjacent playing.
        How to try PMR out
        If you want to try out Poppy Multiplayer Regions, just follow these steps:
        Register for an account at http://getpmr.com/join Download the launcher from the PMR website, or download from the STEX Install and launch the client. Then, connect to a region and log in with your PMR account. The PMR Launcher does all of the synchronization and launching for you. You can view the Readme file that installs with the launcher for more information.
        How permissions work in PMR
        PMR uses what is known as a claims system. In this system, you can only edit cities that you have claimed. All other saves will be ignored by the server. To claim an unoccupied tile, just save it; you can find unoccupied tiles in the Launcher Map that pops up whenever you connect to a region.
        Choose wisely -- you can only claim one tile per region, and you can't abandon a claim.
        What's next?
        PMR is still a work in progress -- the launcher is still a Release Candidate. I've ironed out most of the kinks, but there still might be some small bugs and errors. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could try out the launcher and give me feedback to improve it.
        So far, there is only one region ("Anise") that consists of 36 large tiles. I'm not sure how quickly this will fill up, but when it does I will expand it or add another region.
        A note on plugins
        PMR synchronizes plugins, and I've included my Underwater Ferry Connectors in the Anise plugins set to demonstrate this. Since redistributing others' plugins requires explicit permission, I am wondering if anybody is interested in having their plugins added to the Anise region.
        Thanks, and have fun!

        Poppy Multiplayer Regions (PMR) is a new multiplayer solution for SimCity 4 that allows for save protection and adjacent tile editing. The PMR launcher automatically synchronizes regions and launches SimCity 4 for you -- all you have to do is choose a region and log in.
        To learn more about PMR, please see my post on the forums. There is also a Readme that is installed along with the launcher.
