I've noticed some strange glitch in SimCity 4. When I try to see the transport routes of commuters, I get this:
Also, there seem to be images that are completely missing, even when they are Maxis files. In the image below, there is supposed to be railway tracks parallel to the power lines, and while you can see the level crossing, the normal Maxis rail lines are missing, as well as the corners for the streets.
I had never encountered this error until fairly recently. Can anyone tell me if this error is common, and if I can fix this?
A very interesting development that simplifies mod development!

So a while ago while screwing around with modtools i stumbled upon something that seems to control how smoke effects (or spawners) behave. Editing these parameters made me discover these things:
M_maxlifetime: controls how long the trail of smoke will be.
M_maxspawnangle: controls the grouping of the individual smoke puffs
M_maxstartspeed: i believe this controls the amount of smoke puffs spawned.
there are min and max values allowing for variation in the effect. i used the factory smoke large effect to test this.
At this point im stuck, i can edit the smoke effects without problem, however they just wont save, everytime the game is restarted they reset back to their default settings.
I tried to look into making a mod that saves them, but i lack the knowledge on how to do so. so i hope someone can help me figure this out or wants to pick this up.
Attached screenshots is were the prop effect parameters are located (default settings), and how the effect can look when you edit these.
I made a few screenshots of SC3K buildings as a reference (create for the SC3K to SC4 Bday BAT Project).
Feel free to add your own.
