possible bug fix?

So after taking a break from SC4 (since I moved to school), I got back into it. Unfortunately, since I don't have my discs here, I had to buy it through Origin (yuck). I noticed when I zoned industry, that after the buildings were built, there was still the construction dirt on the ground, rather than parking lots, grass, etc...When I checked out my residential zones, same thing. I places a rail station after ignoring that, and all but the building became transparent, even making the ground invisible through to that ugly blue checkered background. I tried installing the patch, which shouldn't have been needed anyways, but I'm still facing this problem. As far as I know, it's not interfering with gameplay, but it looks awfully ugly. What could I do to fix this problem?

Well, you have all the possible patches, but there are the game controls. What are your graphics set to in the panel you get when you press F9? The last two boxes in the top section should be set to high.

Failing that, some BAT lots may look funny if you don't have the two files BldgProps_Vol1 and _Vol2. These two files can be found in the EA support section of sc4devotion on the Lot Editor page.

While your setup may be funny with Origin, the game you get is fully patched and diskless. For that some thanks may be given.

Sounds like graphics options most likely. Set City Detail and Textures to high.

...except for the train station. You're describing missing textures. Could be a corrupt installation; but try graphics options first.
