Interesting questions! Nevertheless, they work better on their adequate thread: Can't find it. I'll move your post there and then answer what I can. Surely many others will help there too...

EDIT: already moved. Answering...

Reason being is that I'm tired of the repetition of R$$ towers and the game just keeps spamming 4x4 Zaidi Apartments everywhere lol :P

I guess this is your problem, one I faced several times before: repetition is sure if you repeat the same zoning footprint: 4x4 high rise is particularly repetitive, as Maxis didn't made much more than the 4 (one for style) level 8 towers. You'll see this gets much ameliorated if you zone in a more diverse fashion, simply because the repetitive towers will be more spaced, and several more of an smaller footprint would be able to appear between them.

I'm looking for high density R$$ towers that I can download, I'm having some trouble finding them here or LEX

Did you try the LEX power search tool? It has ordered categories that are very relevant to your query, as high rise residentials or outrightly CAM residentials. Remember, in any case, that most of them are lot packs, so you'll have to install several dependencies for the models. And while there is more variety on low wealth medium density big lots, there are several ones available for R$$, particularly by Mattb325. Big lots are a great way to produce more variation, but you have to zone them specifically: keep the Control key pressed while zoning to produce the required areas: typically 6x6, 5x5, sometimes even weird things like 7x8 or 12x6.

Quote

Also, bonus if anyone can help, is there any way to get the R$$ 1x2 row houses to show without having to make them historical? I want to get a nice row house section in my city but the many 2x2 R$$ lots keep taking over them.

The basic option is simply to zone them accordingly, as 1x1 medium residential. Sometimes, alternating 1x1 high rise residential is useful to avoid the overriding, provided you haven't installed pencil towers that would grow over the rowhouses. You can also do the same with commercial zoning, which usually blends well and helps to reduce long commutes. If nothing else works, making historical is a sure way, but once again, alternating it is more than enough: 2x2 or 2x3 medium residentials cannot overgrow a checkered pattern of historical and non-historical rowhouses.

I lost an external hard drive that had ALL of my Simcity 4 files on it.  Probably 10 gigs worth.  I was cleaning out my main hard drive and had moved them over.  I have tried everything possible to retrieve them, but they are completely lost.  I am heartbroken.

I am starting to re-download all of my favorite files, and I have run into a roadblock.  I cannot find any of APTX's BATS or Kei's BATs available for download anywhere at all.  I have tried every search to no avail.  If anyone has a link, or the files themselves, please let me know, as I would be eternally grateful.

Thank you very much,

Jason

I'll move this to the Can't Find It thread...

EDIT: moved! I guess @Yarahi could guide you from here; I know several APTX things are still available, but I don't remember where (maybe on Simcity China?)

Yes, on sc-china. But Hide&Seek is probably easier.

Go here; http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=361.0 to find links for both that and Kei's bats (@gobanoshi's site)

I know this is going to sound dumb, but I don't have a link to the SC China site.  I don't think I've ever been there.  Do you have a link?  If you could please pass that on, it would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks again.

Do you have a link? 

This is the link for the start-page of the file exchange; http://www.simcity.cn/forum-49-1.html - link no.3 (3225 replies/comments) contains only re-uploaded versions of content from other sites (simtropolis/sc4devotion/simpeg...) - link no.2 contains original content made by members of the site

Fanta has uploaded files from a couple of creators whoose content has been lost over the years (aptx/kei/tabi/nob) in addition to a lot of his own creations; http://www.simcity.cn/thread-99303-1-1.html

I'd suggest having a translated version of this site open in a tab in your browser next to a tab with the original - this because you are not able to log in/download/view pics in the translated version :uhm:

are there also mods that takes off the grass on the AVE-6?

@Jackxu has uploaded a couple of mods aimed at changing different NWM networks; http://community.simtropolis.com/profile/270875-jackxu/content/?type=downloads_file

If I'm not mistaken the old MAVE-6 should be the same as AVE-6

Does somebody recognize this small houses? I made the lots myself some years ago and now I can't find the models anymore. They could be part of some bigger pack with different content.

@Fantozzi Most of the houses can be found bundled in with this pack on SimCity Polska:

The other two houses in the middle and last pics are bundled in with this pack here:

Hey Guys,i need your Help with finding a few Sports Court related Things.

First,i`m really sick of the same old drab 1x2 Basketball Court and i wonder if there aren`t any other small Basketball Courts out there.

I`m also looking for some sort of modular Golf Course and / or Golf Hitting Range (you know,those small stacked Cabins you stand in and hit a Ball...).

The last Thing i`m looking for are Baseball Fields similar to these on Randalls Island (if those are Baseball Fields....the ones with the sandy Circle)

like the ones you see below:

Google Maps Link...

Any Hints and Ideas are much apprechiated.

Yet it still is... open the lot in LE eith and without that pack - you'll see a difference ;)

You can even see it in the Prop catalogue; http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=13364.msg411930#msg411930 - at the bottom in the right corner

 

@JP Schriefer that only contains the lot files..

Does anyone know where I might find the model file for csx gm farm growtech? Its part of the

BSC Farms CSX Vol01 Revised 

I'm getting a brown box where the house should be and I'm assuming its another dependency missing from the list that I've been over a hundred times already. I have every dependency listed but still the brown box for this particular farm.

This is from May-2004. At the start of SC4. No CAM and others. 

It was the first tentative steps into the world of SC4. They raised others. Thanks to the pioneers.

It's in CSX Mega Props Vol.01 - IID 2d3f4012

Thank you, It showed the file as downloaded on the lex but was missing in my plugins. You are a life saver, keeping track of all these files can be a bit confusing.

The original idea was to use the model file to convert that building to an I-HT lot.

Nothing stopping you from doing that, even if the model is in a DAT. Just make sure the DAT is in the root of your plugins folder and start PIM to begin the process (new buildings exemplar). If a model in a DAT doesn't appear in PIM, it's likely that it's missing a special properties (XML) file which PIM looks for. If you run into that problem, send me a PM and I'll fix it for you. :).

      Hello,
      Lunar New Year sale on GoG (I forgot to notify you) is nice, but I have a problem. My parents have credit cards but they probably don't allow me to buy SimCity 4 (or even the series) even the price is cheap. I want original SimCity 4 and (if possible) the series. I've some money on my school bank (no, not ordinary bank account). Can you help me solve this problem? Can you give me and other people SimCity 4 or even the series?
      Thanks.

      Hello,
      I've questions regarding Mayor Rating:
      Why Maxis named Mayor Rating as such? Why not Happiness (although it's available in the translation) index? Why Maxis didn't implemented detailed Mayor Rating system in SimCity 4 like SimCity (2013) and Bhutan's GNH (yes, Bhutanese gov uses GNH to measure it's populations instead of just focusing on GDP) and implemented it as Citizen Opinion Poll? I think SC4's MR isn't implemented realistically. Thank you.
