Downloading a map

First time poster and fairly new user of SC4. I am sure this has been discussed before but I am having a hard time getting a map that has been downloaded to the game. I am having a hard time transferring it to the game. I know there is something about SC4Mapper or SC4 Terraformer that I need. I believe I have downloaded one of them. I would really like to use some of the awesome maps that you all have created but I am stuck. Thanks for any help!

Actually, it depends on the type of region that you downloaded. Grayscale bitmap files can be instantly rendered using CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+R. While some regions' form is config.bmp, You will need to make the terrain by yourself since config.bmp file only dictate the region about the size of the region and the cities in the region. While some other can be downloaded as a folder with cities already packed inside the region. Simply extract the file from the .zip or .rar file to the Documents\ Simcity4\ Region. There also some other that will need SC4 Mapper and SC4 Terraformer to work.
