    A long, long time ago...
  1. I'm trying to get a city to but power from another, but can't seem to make the deal available. I understand that the city buying has to have a certain amount of money, and the city selling has to have a certain amount to spare, and I thought these conditions were in place. Also, the situation comes about where the city I want to buy is in desperate need of power, and yet the deal still isn't offered. Perhaps I just hadn't met the conditions mentioned, but I'm wondering if anyone can offer anything else on getting these deals to happen. And yes, there is a power connection between cities. Unfortunately, the only power deal that becomes available is the other way around.
  2. I'm not sure if you need the newer versions for custom content. I tried downloading a few things into the game and it didn't work properly, but I wasn't quite sure why.
  3. Well alrighty then, you both sound quite certain. Thanks.
  4. I'm not really interested in features such as "U Drive It "or anything like that, but I've read that the original SC4 has some bugs and various problems. All I really want is to play SC4 as good as it was intended to be. I've installed some patch that was offered for the original, but I'm curious how much better things are in the new ones. Based on this, just wondering if anyone can comment on whether or not it would be worth it to get one of the newer versions.
  5. The only buildings I've managed to download into the game are wrapped up like a parcel for some reason and can't be queried. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this, thanks.

    I'd like to add that I have managed to get some buildings into the game, but for some reason they are wrapped up like a parcel and can't be queried. If anyone knows anything about this, I'd really appreciate help, thanks.

    It says it's supposed to show up in the Education menu, but I don't see it there: Installation : unzip all file (besides readme file and jpg file) to your /My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins directory for ploppable you will see Riau Library icon at Education/School menu Do you think I just have to get rid of the README and JPEG files that are in the Plugins folder? Also, I have SC4 Original, in case that has something to do with buildings not appearing and maybe the other versions of SC are needed for some buildings.

    So by "open the zip", do you mean hit "Extract To"? I've done this and put it in Plugins, but I can't find the building anywhere in the game. The building details gives a price to plop, so I'm assuming it's a plopable building.
  9. I've downloaded a building and now have a WinRAR window open. From here, I'm not clear on how to get the building into the game. I'd really appreciate any help, thanks.
