I posted this in the SC4 Custom Content thread since that's what appears to be affected here. I also wanted to post in the Mac Forum since this is taking place on my MacBook.
Not sure if this is the right thread for this or not, but I recently came across a very interesting graphical error. I'm not even sure if graphical error is the right term for it as the game itself is still functioning normally with no gameplay issues.
I've attached some images to illustrate my problem.
You'll notice that the red brick BSC paths and textures I use have suddenly changed to a dirt brown color. The color of the trees isn't nearly as vibrant either. The color of my rail catenaries has also dimmed. I've attached a closeup below of what they look like now, you can see their original look in the before image above.
I also can no longer make roundabouts with the street or road tools and my roads no longer end in cul-de-sacs like they used to (but streets still do).
I run SimCity 4 through Steam on a 2015 MacBook Pro. Between the before and after shots I made zero changes or additions to my plugins folder or any other game settings. The only thing I did differently was update my MacOS from Sierra to High Sierra. After that, these issues started to pop up. I've re-ploped and redrew several buildings and networks with no apparent change. Any help would be very much appreciated. This isn't the biggest deal, and quite honestly the colors aren't all that terrible. But I'd like to get back to my red bricks and brighter trees if I can.
I'm experiencing a weird glitch where a dark blue rectangle appears on the bottom border of only the largest squares of any map I play. The bar only appears once I enter the large square, save, and exit back to the main map menu. If I don't save over, the blue bar won't appear. It doesn't matter if I change anything on the map, as long as a save over the existing map, then blue bar will appear.
Any ideas what could be causing this? It really ruins the aesthetic!
Strange problem I am experiencing that I have never come across in all the years I have played SC4. There is no easy way of explaining it other than showing an image. Basically, the city map height glitches upwards, so the city is 2 or 3 terrain levels higher than the tiles surrounding it. The two images below illustrate the problem, the second one showing what happens when I create a new city, and then save and exit to region.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Ultimately I would like a solution that involves keeping the developed city as I've spent a large chunk of this week building it and don't particularly wish to start again.
