      Found this patch but I'm not sure about it. If you know and/or installed it, could  you share your opinions?
      I have an old dedicated XP and a newer Win8.1 one.

      This is my contribution to the STEX 20K file mark.   Its just a simple landmark file of the Maxis Quantum Dish.   Plop it in appreciation of all the files that came before.
      EDIT: JUST VERIFIED. STEX Files 20,000  Yiiiiiiiiiihaaaaaa!!!!! 
      This download now has 3 versions of the Quantum Dish. The original is the 1x1 Landmark found at the top of the LM menu. The LM is a functional industrial lot (stats below).   The 2nd version is a 1x1 (non-functional) Park found in the Parks Menu.   The Park lot can be used to place anywhere on a map without needing road and power connections and will not dilapidate.    The LM and Park lots are identical but can be differentiated by clicking on the lot with the query tool. 
      The stats for the 1x1 Park lot are the same as for the Open Grass Area park with light park effect and negligible pollution.
      On the morning of February 10, 2017 I noticed the counter was at 19,999 and I had been working on making a functional landmark from the Maxis Quantum Dish.  I quickly threw together a zip-file to upload so I could claim the fame of having the 20,000th upload to the STEX.    I've further developed this download, adding 2 more Quantum Dish lots and a Simtropolis lamp-post sign. 
      The 13x2 Simtropolis Lamp-post sign is a hand-printed souvenir for fans and colleagues of Simtropolis.  It is found in the Parks menu.
      Quantum Dish 3x3 Network Roundabout
      This lot is lavishly gardened and lit with lamps.  Each side of the lot is connected to the street network so cars will pass through and drive around the roundabout.  The street overlay textures are included in the folder with the lot.  These may be used in other lots but references to the textures should be maintained to prevent duplicate loading of the textures.  If another lot uses the textures a message should be included instructing to delete multiples of the same .dat file.

      Hello, someone else recently posted a similar question. I would love to get back into SimCity 4, and may upon purchase of a new laptop. I am wondering if either of these options would suffice. I also know I would have to download a copy online (ex. from Steam) and then copy over my files. 
      Thank you.

      The Regional Fire Station was made for building cities in which designing is more important to the user than civic operations, reducing the need to place and monitor public safety buildings.   The Regional Hospital is an additional building for the same purpose.  I have used the Ice Cream Truck to represent ambulances as there is not one in the Maxis props in LE, so although it may seem a stretch of the imagination, ice-cream at least associates to comfort for most people. 
      The building props are mostly from the Disease and Advanced Research Center and Airport to maintain a modern theme that could also be applied in a futurist setting. The radius and capacity are adjusted to cover most of a large city tile. A  Regional Police Station has been added to this download completing this set of public safety buildings, and an HTML Preview file added featuring the 3 lots.  
      Regional Hospital
      Patient Capacity: 12800, Radius: 2800.
      Landmark and Park Effect: 20, 10.
      Pollution 10, 5. 
      Maintenance Cost: 800
      Regional Police Station
      Dispatches 25 cars,
      Strength 200. Radius: 2800. 
      1 Helicopter.
      Jail Capacity: 200.
      Protection Cost: 400.
      The Regional Fire Station covers nearly an entire large city tile with moderately strong fire-fighting strength.  If placed in the center of the large tile its radius reaches close to the tile edges.  This station would also fit well in appearance and strength as an airport fire station.  
      Plop Cost: 5000
      Protection Cost: 400
      Center Strength: 250
      Radius: 2000
      Total Dispatches: 8
      Dispatch Center Strength: 200
      Dispatch Radius: 2000
      Exterior Strength: 200
      Air and Water Pollution, Garbage, 5, 3
      Located under fire stations in the civics menu with a bright red engine icon.
      All Maxis props and lighting, no dependencies.
      To install copy and paste the Region Public Safety folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.  (delete the readme and preview files).

      Per competition rules I can post a larger version in the comments section. The full version is 4x as big (9k+ pixels tall), showcasing the entire lake - so please view it first before casting your vote!
      Located in the heart of the Kenyan Great Rift Valley, Lake Bogoria is home to one of the world's largest populations of lesser flamingos - every year millions of them migrate to it's algae infested waters. The lake boasts some of the most impressive wildlife in all of Africa - hundreds of species of birds call the lake home, and you might even see a couple zebras if you look hard enough. Geysers and hot springs dot the shoreline, creating a truly unforgettable landscape.
      Some notes on Lake Bogoria.
      Flamingos were not photoshopped in, they came from this mod on SC4 Devotion here.
      The geysers were also an in-game mod, they can be found here.
      And finally, the water mod used can be found here.
