Hello Mitchell's

I got an idea LOOONG time ago

"Why I should waste my time puttin discs to my drive all the time so they can get stratched IF I can simply ISO them and make game think "Oh Its CD of the game ! lets play" "

{Makes me remember days where people did

[(CASETTE PLAYER SOUND OUT ----> PC MOTHERBOARD MIC IN)]

And

[(VHS VIDEO OUT---->CONVERTERS----> PC VIDEO IN)

(VHS SOUND OUT ----> PC MOTHERBOARD MIC IN)]

}

And this time I will reinstall the game

But worst of all

Game discs are nowhere to be found and I dont know which patch to install

The SC4Deluxe CD ISO's are in my USB

Should I install SKU1 (NA/NZ) or SKU2 (Europe the place of dirtiest and bloodies people got turned to nice people thanks to Muslim Ottomans) ?

I Learned that SKU 1 is for older games [1.60] while SKU 2 is for newer games [1.62]

Is there an file in the ISO's that tells me version of the game ??

Thanks for answering

  1. Install game (i.e. run the installer)
  2. Navigate to the install dir / Sku_Data folder
  3. Now you know which SKU you need for the EP1 Patch.
  4. Install the EP1 or 1.1.638.0 patch, then I'd recommend also the Nitelighting or 1.1.640.0 patch. Note only the EP1 patch has SKU Variants to worry about.
    Do this right after installing, before any other fixes are applied. Otherwise the patches will fail if they recognise modified files.

Not exactly, SKU1 - 5 is a region thing, but beware where the disks were bought, won't necessarily correlate to the region you have. So check the folder above to get it right first time.

      When you start UDI mode in the game, the amount of traffic generated is drastically reduced.
      This is intended to make driving around easier, plus it probably lessens the demands of the game on your computer.
       
      Is there a possible way to eliminate this so that you get the full automata in UDI mode? Would make for a more immersive (and difficult) experience.
       
      Example: 5:05 in this video. A few seconds later, UDI mode ends and traffic generation increases like 10x.
       
       
      Thanks!

      This lot uses the maximum number of props allowed on a lot. The props are listed as: LotConfigPropertyLotObjectData, starting with 0x88EDC900 and ending with 0x88EDCDFF for a total of 1,280 props.  Source: SC4 Devotion Forum
      The included road and parking overlay textures are the same as in my recently updated Quantum Dish download which has another version of the 3x3 Roundabout. If both are used then delete one or the other file named 'OverlayTexturesCivics_Network.dat'. The overlays may be used freely as long as a message to delete multiples of the same .dat file is included.
      EDIT NOTE:  All the network connections are for 'streets' (in gray) so you have to drag a street from the lot edge.   If you surround the lot with 'roads' (in black) they won't automatically connect and you can't drag roads out from the edge. 
      The Llama Reserve and Nature Park
      An 11x13 lot with Maxis animal animations of llamas, cows, horses, giraffes, bucks and pigeons (which rarely appear, if at all). High park effect in local area. Minimal pollution. Network and transit enabled. Uses 200 mwh of power.
      The Llama Statue Roundabout
      A 3x3 lot with a llama statue built from the Maxis rock props. This lot uses my road overlay textures to create a roundabout connected on each side to the network. High landmark effect. Minimal pollution. 
      The domestic llama statue was modelled from a picture by Kim Foster and is included under the Creative Commons Attribution 2 Generic License. Source: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Domestic_llama_(2009-05-19).jpg
      Install:
      To install delete Previews and text files, place the 'Llama Reserve Nature Park V1' folder in your 'user documents/ SimCity 4/ plugins' folder.
      NO DEPENDENCIES

        For further enjoyment of the Maxis Llama Theme:
      Using the standard cheats you can change the advisers to Llama heads.  DollyLlama changes the faces of the advisers to llamas. Press CTRL + X to open the standard cheat window, then enter DollyLlama. The Llamas may not appear immediately, so click out and back in to the adviser menu to see them.

      This is a scene from my Simtopian Dream CJ presentation, a larger view of the arch with the Simtropolis billboard and statue of mother nature in front of it.

      So I built a 15m elevated avenue over a ground highway, and I want to create an onramp to connect the two road systems. Is that possible?
