  3. STEX Issues - Community Report Thread

    Unfortunately, when I was creating my STEX link updater, I did have a look into converting topic links, however it seems the IDs for topics have changed over the years, so older topic links can't be converted into the new format. I'm also unable to find the actual support topic the link is supposed to direct to, looking at @toroca's topics there doesn't appear to be one that matches.
  4. Dark or Light Theme for Simtropolis?

    I'd personally use a dark theme, just created a quick mockup to give an idea as to how it could look.

    Thanks, I've updated all descriptions apart from the final one, which I'll keep for the meantime as an example for that type of issue.

  9. STEX Issues - Community Report Thread

    Yup, of course. I'll create a list of files affected by a certain issue for referencing in the future.
  10. STEX Issues - Community Report Thread

    Thanks, the description should now be fixed I'll try and get the rest of the reported files fixed by tonight.
  11. STEX Issues - Community Report Thread

    On the topic of broken dependency links, I made a quick converter a while back to convert from old STEX link formatting to new link formatting (you can find it here); I'll modify it at some point in the future to support batch conversion.
  12. Show us your Night Shots!

    Click here for full size. Sorry about the strange lighting glitches on the baseball stadium lot, they seem to only appear at that zoom.
  13. Show us your Downtown / CBD

    The latest project I've been working on, click here for full size (warning: very big image).
  14. You'll need a third party extraction program to extract the file as it's not something which Windows can do itself, I'd recommend 7zip for this; once it's installed you'll have a "7-zip" option whilst right clicking on the download.
  15. Instead of clicking "Open" within the download, can you try clicking "Save" and choosing a location on your computer, such as the "Downloads" folder? Then, if you have 7-zip, you can right click on the downloaded file, select "7-Zip" and then "Extract files...", before continuing with the video guide.
