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






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.

      Good day everyone!
      I have become curious about how the simulation was working in SC4.
      Of course I know that unlike Skylines, Sims in 4 are simulated only in "presence", but how?

      I'm also cursious about health, wealth and education. Is it just a global percentage applied to groups of population in map areas or is it more precise?
      Do Sims get wealthier? Do Sims really age?
      I am wondering what the underlying mechanics are, do we have a full documentation about that somewhere or are we just guessing by observing what happens ingame?

      When bulldozing something, dust en debris is shown.
      After loading my city I noticed that some debris remained from the previous time, visual, just lying there.
      I bulldozed the squares again, but it remains.
      I tried the immortally killer, but no effect.
      It looks like this can't go away, but I'm not sure. Most off all I want to know what it is.
      If it is there to stay, well, I will make it an truck accident . :-)
      The question: Does anyone know what this freezing debris is?, How it occurs and can it go away?
