I'm still working on the same region, 1 and half year later.

Greater Kaijo Area, now at 4.34 million people, almost a quarter of the 12.5 million people target. I'm working on the island on the upper left and soon, I will terraform the small peninsula above it to match land elevations.

What mod do you use for the terrain?

Here's that station, in case you're interested.  I know first hand it can be a pain trying to find particular stations:

 

And one other sunken station, which isn't as cantankerous as the previous:

The horror of hearing screams from tooth pulling has made it into SimCity.

Nice looking BAT you have there.  It's definitely one that could be used in my cities.  Look forward to getting it.

Actually, having teeth yanked out doesn't hurt as much as did say 40 years ago.  I would know since I only have 14 teeth left and some of those are ready to go as well.  Roots start to decay and it slowly works it's way up to the surface.  Pain can be so intense, it feels like your roots are snapping in two.  Root canals couldn't save them, but I figure once they're all gone, no more toothaches.  Dentures will do me just fine.

Yo, Guys --

This is a bit "off-topic" -- and I do apologize --

BUT --

Can anyone FAMILIAR with the SimFox TRB Towers explain to me why they come in Pink, Orange, Yellow, and Purple -- and the only one that seems to grow is the Purple ??

I assume you've checked the readme (“This download includes two sets of LOTs identical in design, but differing in the way certain color variants of the tower are growing on them. Random color lots are just that - one lot per design with random color of the tower appearing on it. you have no control and it is game that picks it. Set colors means that there is one lot in each design per each and every color variant. This gives you possibility to exclude some colors from appearing by simply removing lots for unwanted variants. Lots are clearly named to pick ones you need” ; perhaps you have to choose between Random and Set ?

...or, assuming they are commercial buildings, one could always do a quick re-lot and make them ploppable. The player can then choose which model to plop.

I would assume that intersection's not supported by the TLA-5. Try connecting it with a road instead.

Here is the bite. :(

ATM the NWM diagonal intersections are not supported at all with other networks. So the road connection won't work either. Maybe in the future it gets more stability.

There are some one-tile diagonal NWM intersections that do work - however it is unsupported. I know TLA-3 has a lot done, and NRD-4 have some done.

Nevermind, I was thinking they had gotten bought out by Auto Zone, but it was Advance Auto that bought them out in 1998. 

I can scan an old Western auto ad from the early 90s hopefully soon if you still want it. It will have what you want

           So, I haven't played in about 10 years. I re-installed the game about a month ago, which was an adventure in itself, with the windows 10 disc situation. I have spent over two weeks building my plugins folder, trying out different terrain mods and tree controllers. I've downloaded about 2gb worth of custom content, (half of that is dependencies). Many of the lots I got, I want to edit. The lots themselves and especially the properties, including cost, capacity, coverage, etc. I am pretty familiar with the Maxis Lot Editor and Plugin Manager, as I used to do a little custom editing to lots long ago. If I download a custom lot with a Lot, Model and Desc. file. I can easily do what I need to do in the aforementioned programs. Since my return, there have been many changes. Many new lots have a DAT file, which is new to me. There are new programs, namely the SC4PIM (or X-PIM) and Ilive's reader. These also are new to me and I'm struggling with them, even with the tutorials found here. I'm not very savvy when it comes to computers. I'd say on a scale of 1-10, I'm like a 4 or 5. But I can follow directions. I'm sure, given enough time, I'll get familiar with them. Let me try to get to my questions...The first thing I wanted to modify are the substations by Simmer2.
       
       These are beautiful lots and I'd like to use them, but I want to make some changes to suit my needs. First, I'd like to make the substations Waste to Energy Plants. This will eliminate the need for landfills and power plants all over my region. Secondly, I'd like to change the cost, power output, etc. But since these are DAT files. I can't do that with the programs I am used to. I may be able to do it in the reader program, but I am totally befuddled when I try to examine these there. So, I thought I'd just relot them since I have all the props I need. Also, these questions apply to other relots I plan to do, even if I do figure out how to do these particular lots in the reader.
       
        As I was searching the lot files here, I came across the BLaM Blank...
       
       
         I decided to give these a try, but I have run into what may or may not be a problem, and I was hoping to get some clarification. So, what I did in preparation to do the relots was I copied the blank.
       

       
      And I made three copies. Changing them to this...
       

       
      Changing the first part of the file name, but leaving the numbers as were. But when I open the PIM, it only shows one of these. The last one alphabetically. Which is Substation_3.
       

       
      I'd like to know why this is. I wasn't sure if I should change the numbers a little or get rid of them altogether. Would it matter if I named the file: DD_Substation_1.SC4Model? I'm not sure what the numbers mean or if I should even mess with them. If I leave these like this and I make say, 10 lots renaming them in like manner, will the last DESC file to load control all lots with that blank model? Another thing I notice here is the word "blank" appears under the column "Name". Is this what's going on here? If so, how do you change that? Anyways, these are the questions I have thus far. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Even more so if someone can walk me through making these changes in the reader program concerning these particular files.

      There is a tonne of amazing custom content on the exchange including maps.
      A lot of the maps I've installed and played are laid out in large cities only however and in a perfect grid. I prefer randomness with medium and small cities scattered about.
      How can I change the config file on an existing region without messing up the existing terrain that I like?

      Hello,
      My laptop has Intel HD 3000 and I have $8 on my school saving. I want to buy $5 Steam Wallet. There are discounts on Steam. Should I buy Cities: Skylines (around $5) or SC4 (almost same price)?
      Thanks.
