  1. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    Hi, I can't find the half dead grass NAM Curve AVE and FAN grass, also road, one way NAM curve and FAN grass. I can only find the white sidewalk filler. Also, I can't find 2 buildings. One is a british/european 5 storey wall to wall about 1x3 that fits to a curve in off white im guessing smooth stone blocks. Other is a 2x2 New York Apartment, about 5 storeys tall with a billboard on top of it, in brown brick. Also, I can't find the 'can't find it' thread.
  2. Crash when digging in sandy desert

    i found something called a city terrain cutaway mod and i removed that so im trying that now
  3. Crash when digging in sandy desert

    I searched CPT and removed some additional files I hadn't seen. It works to dig now. However, when I try to make a mountain, it crashes. I can make hills. I removed the SHK HDRock mod. It still does it. It has something to do with cliffs. I have no idea what else would do that, since all it is is the terrain mod. I don't have a rock mod in there, and I can't think of what it would be.
  4. Crash when digging in sandy desert

    i took the rock mod out when i took the water mod out. the only other thing would be the beach extender mod, or i dont know if the NAM has a built in slope mod. Ill try it again in a bit.
  5. Hi. I started a new city with the sandy desert terrain mod installed. It worked until I dug down to the water. That's when it crashed. So I removed my water mod. It crashed again when I dug down. So I removed the sandy desert terrain mod. It did not crash when I dug down on vanilla. I've used the Olympic terrain mod in the past. It works just fine. I removed all of the associated olympic terrain mod files, and so there shouldn't be a conflict with the sandy terrain mod now. The sandy terrain mod does work and does paint the landscape tan, but it has something to do with the water. I am running on hardware default settings.

    Ok, thanks. DirectX works fine. Oh and rsc, thank you for the diagonal filler pieces. They are the most popular tiles in all my cities.
  7. Crash to Desktop Always

    Should I use openGL or directX rendering?
  8. Crash to Desktop Always

    Bingo! Thank you it works now! And thank you RSC for helping!

    the launcher works now. it is this launcher: Yes, it still crashes when you save. It won't let me add to the target line.

    ok i tried typing it in without quotes, and it took it, im guessing it was because before i was copy pasting and it became fancy keys or whatever. However it crashed when I saved an empty tile and exited to the region, so im not sure if it worked.
  11. Crash to Desktop Always

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps\SimCity 4.exe was able to go back into the launcher and make the launcher work again. however, C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps\SimCity 4.exe -CPUCount:1 makes it say it cant find sc4.
  12. Crash to Desktop Always

    when i type "C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps\SimCity 4.exe" -CPUCount:1 into the target on the launcher tab on the right in the launcher, then go to the launcher tab on the left to launch the game, it disappears, and says is invalid. I think it has something to do with the quotation marks.

    and it doesn't leave anything in the launcher.
  14. Crash to Desktop Always

    all the things you're saying the computer is saying isn't valid.
