  1. Looking for exact replica of New York region map

    This was a huge region i made of the whole metro area... not perfect but still good! https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/29167-metro-new-york/
  2. I've been play a city for the last few days now and the traffic is all flowing smoothly (with despawning turned off) except in the downtown area. Every road is just full of cars apparently looking for parking spaces. I built several car parks which filled up with car, but then I noticed that these cars - some have been left there be drivers who are 'at home' and their home is the other side of the map! And the road outside their house is empty! Why does this happen!? The car parking in downtown did seem to reduce the number of cars driving around in circles though.
  3. I'm building a city and for some reason everything keep burning! Disasters are turned off forest fires keep raging constantly. I have wide firefighting coverage but fires keep burning constantly and spreading all over, then burn some more. As soon as one it put out, the flare up again!
  4. Official Mapping Community Requests - Take Two

    I've used that before but I can't see how to download as a greyscale image - they seem to be in different formats another issue I have.... how you increase the sea level without having to brighten the whole image which ends up clipping mountings? When ever I render a jpg in SC4 Mapper its always underwater, but a PNG is too exaggerated
  5. Official Mapping Community Requests - Take Two

    I've been looking for years for high quality elevation data. I find data but its always so poor and can't render rivers etc.
  6. Cities Skylines Traffic Help

    ^^ Where is the download link? I actually like these 'solve my traffic problem' games haha
  7. Fire & Bypass

    This entry looks at a random fire which erupted out of no where and the completion of the bypass for Pinewood - plus some new high rise development in the centre! Looks like someone burnt the toast... Prior to the extension of the bypass (see next photo) the town centre was flooded with a huge number of cars and heavy goods vehicles trying to reach the industrial areas to the north... The original bypass route as you can see ended in the town centre which flooded the roundabout with huge numbers of cars. This caused a lot of problems, so the route was extended further out avoiding the town completely and adding a junction with the motorway... First highrise buildings grow to the east of Downtown...
  8. Earthquake - already!?

    What can you see? I can see them? Even when I look on my phone hmmm (Edit) I have rehosted them all!
  9. Earthquake - already!?

    Someone forgot to turn disasters off - oh well! I have left them on now as this city is about realistic growth and planning so anything could happen! The Earthquake struck suddenly and drove a rift right through the town centre! Houses burst into flames and roads fell apart... An emergency bridge was built to carry the main road over the newly formed canyon! Just so happens, the Earthquake cleared a convenient strip of land to allow me to build a new road to help with the traffic through the town centre (I play with despawning OFF) The bypass is completed and the town is - almost back to its old self! Wonder what will strike next...hmmm... After the new road was built to take traffic away from the centre - the road was downgraded as traffic reduced and trees were planted down the centre...
  10. Pinewood is born

    It all starts with a roundabout - this could get interesting when traffic levels increase! Pinewood is located in a dry shoreside valley. There are big plans in place! Development begins around the new town centre... An overall view to see the current development... The main road is pretty busy with a lot of through traffic!
  11. Cities Skylines Traffic Help

    I can do but I can see them and I have tested it on my phone and other PCs so I'm not sure why there is a problem.
  12. What's your Worst Designed City?

    There seem to be a lot about, it almost put me off the game when I saw what people had made as I thought it all looked so unrealistic and clumsy! Now I know its just down to the player haha. I downloaded someones city recently to 'fix the traffic' actually a very interested way of playing the game, but the city just had highways thrown across it and it was so random. This was a reviewer's screen shot which makes the game look so bad! Building roads like this makes traffic so much worse. Everyone seems to follow the Chinese model of building a small number of monster roads which funnel all the traffic, rather than spreading across the city and using a few bypasses where necessary.
  13. Cities Skylines Traffic Help

    I can see all of them in all the posts?
  14. Cities Skylines Traffic Help

    This thread is such a good idea! I have downloaded the file and had a play with it to see what I could do! i actually find it more fun sorting traffic problems in existing cities than I do in my own as I always make my own so there won't be a problem in the first place which makes it more boring haha. I guess this type of game play only works with people who don't have too many mods and assets! Here is the updated Dropbox file - I have used Network Extensions and Traffic President Mod which are like NAM for SC4, you just need them to make the name realistic! https://www.dropbox.com/s/avcvn1x985vab5h/Hadensville.crp?dl=0 I will say, and I don't want to sound mean - the roads were so badly laid out, sorry! I didn't bother relaying the highways as that would take hours, I just mainly rebuilt junctions. Not much new road building except for one road across the river front! I got the traffic flow from 52% to 69% Here are some overview maps: Before After This was probably this biggest thing I did - the island caused such a problem with the bridges! So I ran the main route under the island which instantly got rid of the traffic queues I got rid of all the excess slip roads here and tied it all up, plus built a bypass around the industrial area to take traffic away from the centre The only new road I actually built was to take heavy goods traffic away from the residential areas There was a huge queue up the hill side here, but I reduced it by rebuilding the roads and making junctions smoother flowing
  15. Avalon Indie City-building game Reboot 2017; now 3D.

    It died, was resurrected as a 3D image and then died again. I actually don't think it ever existed, I think its all photoshop lol
