So... I'm assuming that a lot of SC2013 players have downloaded the 3k Extended Boundary Mod (can be found here if needed: ).

 

I'm also assuming that many of you have created enormous cities :), so show them off here! We want to see your massive metropolises!

 

I don't have a picture of mine yet, but I'll have it up here very soon.

 

Get posting!

 

NOTE: For those who do not know how to upload a screenshot; please follow these steps to get your picture in your post.

 

In my opinion, PhotoBucket is the easiest way to do this. So I will provide steps using PhotoBucket. Could someone please provide me with the steps to uploading a screenshot through Imgur?

 

Link to PhotoBucket: http://www.photobucket.com

 

1. Create an account on PhotoBucket (if you do not have one).

2. There should be an upload button on the page you land on once you have completed the signup process and have signed in to PhotoBucket. Click on that upload button.

3. Choose your picture file and let it upload to your Library.

4. Once that is done, go to your Library and select the screenshot you just uploaded.

5. You'll be taken to a page with a bigger version of your screenshot. Next to that, you'll see links. One of them will be labeled Direct. Copy that link and then close out of PhotoBucket.

6. Go to Simtropolis and begin to make a post in whatever thread your screenshot is needed.

7. Click on the mini picture icon above where you're making your post and paste the link to the picture there.

8. Your picture should appear where you're typing your post and then appear once you publish your post.

Ok I would willingly do so if I knew the procedure for uploading a screenshot. Perhaps you could explain for those like me who do not know?

I think it needs to be online, so you can first upload to imgur.com (which is free and very quick and easy). To then post the picture here, click on the little photo icon (says 'image' when you hover over it) that comes up with all the other options (font etc) when you reply to a topic - pop the imgur link in there and it should appear in the post. Hope that makes some sense! :)

Tried a couple of times to do this, when I click on the picture icon the box appears. I dropped the photobucket direct link in pressed ok and everything just froze...I waited for a couple of minutes still froze.

That's frustrating!  I know that when I do it with imgur, I have to click on the imgur image, then copy the url from there to get a link that works.  I'm not familiar with photobucket but maybe it's a similar sort of thing - click on your image so it opens all by itself and use that link? Good luck.

yeah it  is a bit frustrating. Never mind will try again later. I built two cities with the mods, population just over a million, little crime, health issues etc. Very little regional road traffic at the moment but I am going to abandon them, because I am not happy with the in city road layout. One city has 650k residents the other 440k residents. I had a noticeable slowdown as the cities grew. Also there is a need to disperse sewerage plnts, water around the cities because of the silly agent thing where it drops off over a long distance. The mod so far works a dream.

    Very nice everyone.. I hope we can continue to cooperate and help improve the tools for the community.   I hope the creativity inspires more modders to get involved.  If your interested please private me and lets talk.

     

    Communities grow stronger with teamwork

     

    Keep it up .. all the cities are looking like REAL cities for the first time.  Right now I'm working on Online version of UDoN's so wish me luck even if its only 1/2 implemented at ground and bridge level not freeway and elevated.

     

    I want everyone to enjoy One ways roundabouts and the new path options

    You can :) just connect a regional road to a regular road and then you can zone.

     

     

    By graphics, I mean resolution, you know, like 1024 x 768, etc...

    Oh :) I use 1920x1208 or something like that. The largest one available.

        Hey everyone, 
        I need some advice. 
        I have been out of the PC desktop world (at home) for some time and I have been getting the bug to start playing games like Cities and SimCity (I have not played in several years). I really am lost when it comes to specs needed. My main purpose for the pc itself would be for games like this and downloading mods. My laptop serves my needs for all other work that I do from home. I don''t have an interest in any other type of gaming other than these city building types. 
        So... if my budget was 1,000 - 1.500 USD what would you recommend on specs with PC etc. and monitor. 
        Thanks
