Saw something you liked in someone's screenshot but can't find it? Vaguely remember seeing something once, but you don't know where it is?
Wondering whether or not a plugin of a certain type exists?

This is the thread where you can ask for help finding things.

When asking, please be as descriptive and specific as possible. This can help people to understand what you're looking for.
If possible, screenshots are also encouraged.

This thread is a direct continuation of the original topic, which got too big. Someone might have already been looking for the same thing as you, so checking there first might get you your answer faster. *:)

P.S. If you would like a particular BAT to be made, please request it in the BAT Request Thread.

I've lost a plugin. It were 1x1 grasstiles with a fence and with some lots tree's and some not. The grasscolor was exactly the same of the small, medium and big standard parks from maxis. I've searched on SC4D and STEX but can't find it (at least not if I search on the terms 'Grass' or 'Fence' or something in that direction.

In the plugin there are diagonal fence lots, and one of the two sides (fence splits it in half) has the same colour as road or avenue grass (on the side of it).

Thank you very much!



Two images I've found in my photobucket library. These lots are exactly the ones I'm searching for.

If you haven't found the CSX Extras file yet, I think most, if not all of the files included in that file are now included in the CSX Mega Prop - Vol6 download from the LEX.

And I think the SugarFarms file is included in the Simgoober's SugarCaneFarms download which very well may have been bundled into his Agricultural Lots download.

I REALLY NEED HELP right now. Please help me.

This (the GREEN transparent sports facility at the bottom):


And a like to this subway entrance (toward the top just short of the avenue):


And does anybody know how to edit the plane textures (the ACB VLT ones) so you can make the planes look like "your own airline"? I can photo edit pretty well but I am TERRIBLE at modeling programs. 34.gif

Thanks a bunch! 10.gif

I'm trying to get the phoenix city map but I'm having issues installing it into SC4. Does anyone just have the city complete so I can just drop the folder into my SC DIR and import it through the game?

I'm looking for the modd that changes all of the grass textures on buildings to be the same (or something like that). I'm not sure if I'm confusing it with the park texture modd though...

The one I found was locked because "it had already been done before". WHERE? Care to link us to the modd if your going to lock it like that???

Hello, Acablue, and welcome to Simtropolis!

I like the Columbus Terrain Mod. You gotta have two plugins though for it to work out the best, where the snow appears low and not incredibly high up. and one of them is on another website called SimCity4 Devotion, which you have to register for (do that here). After you registered, click these two links:


And this one too to lower the snow to a better level and make sure to read the readme or else your game will crash.


Hope this helps!

 No prob acablue 44.gif

Also Jayster I can answer your question. Most of these I wouldn't say are French buildings but if you go to the LEX and Power Search "Mattb325" Under designers.... then you can get some very nice houses and other European buildings. Go thru all of the pages though because the first page isn't much resedential. Hope this helps! 1.gif

An easy one, as it seems to be fairly popular...

I need those PEG props that go in rivers and the like; rapids, logs, rocks e.t.c.

Also, the grass mod that I asked for earlier would be nice.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a rail to subway lot that I saw once, I believe on a japanese site.

It was a smooth curve and about 6 to 7 tiles long.

I was wondering (and I'm somewhat new here, so i don't know if this is the place to ask, but I love this site) if someone could make the Capitol building in Topeka KS? This is really a cool, classic looking building which is located in the state capital, Topeka. This is the only capitol building left in the US that still gives dome tours, up 296 steps that is! Cyrus K. Holliday donated a tract of land to the state for the construction of a state capitol. The building was constructed in stages, the east wing 1866 - 1873, the west wing 1879 - 1881, and the center 1884 - 1906. The building is currently undergoing extensive renovations, including reclaiming numerous frescoes previously over. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kansas_State_Capitol)

      The lot is called Sues Sunflowers. This is a growable farm.
      Most of the props on this lot are mine.

      This park system combines three updated versions of previous park sets - Monument Park, Urban Gardens and White Sands Park. Mainly I wanted to create the possibility to lay out a good variety of parks, paths and gardens for any type of city - particularly with options for different path textures to be used on the same city tile. You can now have three very distinct park-styles in your city, each with its own character (layout, props, textures) - and you can mix and mingle them any which way you please... and even exchange or unify textures as you desire.

      This will enable you to use the paths, prefab parks, ends, transitions, addons and extensions of all three park sets in one glorious citywide park system.


      * Three complete parksystems, each with a unique style, textures, props and individual pieces

      * A host of possible configurations - Narrow, Wide, Diagonal, Sweeping Curves, Ends, prefab Parks and more

      * New park 'Sidings' for realistic-looking transitions to your roads and avenues

      * Transitions between textures and/or sidewalks that can adapt to your preferred sidewalk textures and mods

      * The ability to exchange or unify the base textures on the fly to suit your taste

      * The option to mix and mingle sections of all three sets any which way you want

      * All items designed to create extended lawns to be enhanced with MMP flora of your choice

      * All items with consistent properties, descriptions and plop helpers, tightly arranged in your menus

      * A host of overlay textures and custom props to make your own matching lots

      * Peace of mind that future sets and addons will be made to match all of the above

      Please note that there is a more in-depth Online Documentation with lots of additional info and many images available as well.


      * Paeng Texture Pack v103 (updated version Sep 2011!)

      * Murimk Props 02, v201 (updated version Sep 2011!)

      * BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol01

      * BSCBATPropsMattb325 Vol02

      * BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol02

      * BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01

      * BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol02

      * Porkie Props Vol 01 and Vol 02

      * SPOT (Orientation Helpers)


      The aim of this overhaul is to 'streamline' the park packs as far as dependencies, general layout and possible variations are concerned. The layout and appearance of the sets have been maintained as much as possible.

      Most of the pieces - including the new 'Sidings' - are layed out to give you nice spaces of well-groomed lawn that you can plant with your own choice of flora - bushes, shrubs, flowers and trees from your personal MMP collections.

      If you don't want to use any of the sidings, you can safely delete the respective subfile(s).

      If you want to exchange or unify any of the base textures, make sure to carefully read the separate instructions included with the 'Texture Changer 205' module (included, but packed separately).

      Special thanks go to the NightOwls Murimk and Shokthrpy for creating special custom props, adding to the unique appearance and feeling of these parks. Thanks also to Krio - his Kiosks continue to serve all park-visiting Sims :-)

      So I was recently looking at some Japan driving videos and got inspired to make some highway pillars.
      I'm planning to make an entire set of various types of pillars in this style, even a 6cell over-canal pillar. (if it goes okay)
      Tell me what you think about my first attempt, I need to nail the style and the details before I start making other variations.
      Constructive criticism welcome, also any ideas.
      By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings? I should just make it just the pillar, without the small details - pipe, wires, supports.
      Not sure when they're going to be done and available.

      For what I’m trying to accomplish, as far as I can tell, I should be using either SC4 Tool or the iLive Reader. I would like to be able to edit certain parameters of buildings in the game. For example, changing the radius for police, fire, education, etc. I would also like to change how much power is generated from power plants, how much water is generated by water pumps and towers, etc. Basically do everything (hopefully) that can be done in SimCity 3000 here.
      I’ve tried both SC4 Tool and iLive Reader but can’t seem to find the buildings I’m searching for. I’m truly starting from scratch and need some assistance on either of these programs. Any help is greatly appreciated!
