I am having a weird issue when in Region view. All large cities are showing an odd band across the bottom border of the city. As you can see in this image, the band only shows on large city tiles, not the medium cities (or the small cities if I had any in this region).
I am playing SimCity 4 Deluxe digital version from GOG Games. My PC is a custom built running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. My Graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 610. My current startup options for SimCity are: "C:\GOG Games\SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition\Apps\SimCity 4.exe" -CPUCount:4 -CustomResolution:enabled -r1600x1200x32 -Intro:off -f -CPUPriority:high
Can anyone suggest possible reasons for the bands and how I might get rid of them? They are only in the region view, not in city view so it's more irksome than critical, but I'd still like to know what is causing it.
Greetings everyone! Although largely unnoticed, I withdrew from the community upon the passing of my little brother in March of '16. Just prior, I discovered a secret of the software installation that could potentially benefit any style player and even help ensure the game's continued viability. However, that knowledge might have been disclosed or perhaps even documented since then. So, I must ascertain if there is any demand for the following procedure, confirmed working on Windows 7 through the recent release of Windows 10 requiring minimal freeware and no special skills:

Aside from SC4 deluxe, I also play other games, including Starcraft 2. Recently, due to Blizzard's changing the system requirements for that game with an update, I had to upgrade my video card. Since then, SC4 has the worst lag issues I've ever had. I have also had more CTD issues when dragging networks, or bulldozing. A good friend recommended Cities In Motion 2 to me and I have started playing that. Since transport networks have always been my favorite part of the game, I find myself getting far more enjoyment playing CIM. I am seriously considering dropping SimCity 4. As I continue to keep my machine up to date I have to consider that a game that was created for Windows XP may not be feasible on my machine. Before anyone asks, I do run the game in compatability mode. That being said, I want to let you all know that I appreciate all the great custom content available here and at other sites. I also greatly appreciate this community. I have made a few small (I'm low income) donations in the past. If I do leave SC4 behind, I will always have fond memories of this place.
