    Incredible! Most people skimp on the night-lighting, but even there the detail is amazing.
  3. Saltspring Island, British Columbia, Canada

    Version 1

    Scale accurate region of Saltspring Island, British Columbia, Canada My first Canadian island! Saltspring is in the channel that lies between Vancouver Island and the mainland, called the Georgia Straight by Canadians, and the Straight of Juan de Fuca by Americans. it is one of the Canadian Gulf Islands, and the population is strongly tilted toward artists and artisans. Served by ferries running bewtween the mainland, Vancouver Islands, and other Gulf Islands. No airport, although there is regular float plane service. Most of the island is quite sloped, so building tends to be concentrated near the shores, although there is an increasing amount of development, primarily of private homes, in the interior. The Land on the west side of the region is Vancouver Island; that in the northeast is Galiano Island. In the east is Prevost Island, and in the southeast is Piers island. The Region is 5x7 large city tiles. The zip includes this file, the config.bmp and an sc4m of the region. See the Omnibus for instructions on using sc4m files. Cheers.

  4. Mount Desert Island, Maine, USA.

    Mount Desert Island is the largest island in Maine and the sixth largest coastal island in the continental US. It is primarily a summer vacation destination. The community of Bar Harbor is on the northeast side. Much of the Island is protected as Acadia National Park. This is a really interesting island with huge amounts of shoreline, some gentle slopes and some fairly steep slopes. The highest point of the Island is Cadillac Mountain at 466m. There are lots of smaller islands, and a bit of mainland Maine in the north and northwest of the region. The high elevation water has been changed to local depressions, so have fun if you use any of the freshwater mods. If you you think it deserves a low rating, please leave a comment so I can improve my next effort. Positive comments are also much appreciated :^) Cheers

  6. Martha's Vineyard, MA, USA

    Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, USA, to scale. The island at the eastern end is Chappaquiddick Island. The inland water that is close to sea level has been left as ocean. The upland lakes have been filled so there are no craters. At the north of the region, you can see part of the Elizabeth Islands chain, Naushon Island is the one that looks like a dinosaur a dinosaur head the other is Pasque Island. Nominal size is 9x6 large tiles, but the enclosed config file has 144 cities of various sizes, positioned so that all tiles that have land have enough to build economically viable cities. Download includes this information, the config.bmp, and Martha's Vineyard.SC4M. See the omnibus for instructions on using sc4m files. If you you think it deserves a low rating, please leave a comment so I can improve my next effort. Cheers

    My last attempt at this island resulted in Flatucket, but this time I managed to keep the elevation data, so here is Nantucket Island, MA, USA, to scale. Highest elevation on the island is around 30 m, so there are not really any steep slopes. If you downloaded Flatucket, don't bother downloading this one. Even with all the relief, it's still a darned flat island. Most of the inland water is very close to sea level, so I've left it as ocean. The one larger lake (Gibbs Pond) in the central eastern area is at about 8m elevation. I've left it as ocean, although this made for kind of steep slopes around it. The two islands to the west of the main Island are Muskeget (furthest west) and Tuckernuck. Nominal size is 8x5 large tiles, but the enclosed config file has 136 cities of various sizes, positioned so that all tiles that have land have enough to build economically viable cities. Download includes this information, the config.bmp, an island map from the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce (in case you wanted to use real world city names) and Nantucket.SC4M. See the omnibus for instructions on using sc4m files. If you you think it deserves a low rating, please leave a comment so I can improve my next effort. Cheers

    My first attempt at building a region from a DEM. It's supposed to be Nantucket, Massachusetts USA, but I think I must have had contour lines turned on somewhere, so pretty much all elevation is absent, so Flat Nantucket (FLatucket). It should be great for farming and industry, not so much for ski resorts. Nominal size is 8x5 large tiles, but the enclosed config file has 103 cities of various sizes, positioned so that all but two should have enough land to build economically viable cities. Download includes this information, the config.bmp, and Flatucket.SC4M Cheers

    Me likey. I like your rationale for no night lights, but there should probably be a few in the parking lot for the ATM.

    This is a hyper un-realistic lot. Do not use if you have even the slightest interest in game realism. The new SimNation government has decided to liquidate some of the assets of Area 51, and for a limited time you can pick up slightly used TARDIS. Due to it's useful attribute of being bigger on the inside that the outside, it has been crammed full of emergency services gear, including Area 51 state of the art medical equipment, and more cops and fire fighters than you can imagine. One of these blue babies can provide health, fire and police protection for even the largest city, and for the liquidation price of only 5 simoleons!!! It doesn't require road access, consumes no water or power, produces no pollution and only takes up one tile. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide any jobs, all work being done be re-programmed cybermen. There is one teensy catch, since it is alien technology, it is virtually indestructable, so the bulldoze cost is 5,000,000 simoleons. The lot requires the Multifunctional Lots Engine by Rubik3 and Ralphael http://www.simtropolis.com/STEX/details.cfm?id=21287 and the TARDIS designed by ill tonkso http://www.simtropolis.com/STEX/details.cfm?id=12205 I did no technical or creative work on this, I only put to-gether two great contributions.
