Missing Textures for Park Pieces

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new here!


Sorry if this is a common problem or topic, but I was wondering about environmental pieces, such as small parks, plazas, and skate parks. I was wondering if, in the vanilla game, the textures for those are missing? If so, is there a place on the site where I can download them? When I place them in my cities, they show up as merely grass patches, and it's a pain to keep guessing as to where I can place other things around them. If this is a normal thing, is there any way to substitute textures for them, or make them look like they do in the pictures for them on the toolbar?


Also, I'm running XP SP3 if this is a conflict of some sort with my OS.


Any help would be much appreciated!


Cheers xx

Just a thought, have you checked your game graphic settings?Those are usually reset to low after updating the game. On low detail  levels, you barely see any difference between some items, except the texture...

Also, please post the release build of your game.  Get this by using windows explorer to find the file SimCity 4.exe.  Right click the file and open the properties page.  Open the version panel and you can find the version.  Should be at least 1,1,638.

    Also, Magneto, I didn't even think of that. I checked the settings, and none of the graphics settings were even marked. I changed them all to high, and it fixed everything. Thank you for your help!
