  1. Best PC for running SC4 w/ custom content?

    How would I set the command line options so it only runs through one processor? And after a quick browse, I found some towers that seem reasonably priced and might provide the necessary computing power for (hopefully) smooth SC4 operation. Using this tower as a baseline http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+Inspiron+Desktop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive/6877635.p?id=1218810051823&skuId=6877635 What might be the pros and cons of this tower in relation to running SC4 + X amount of custom content?

    Thanks, Turjan. You're right about the possible upgrade in system memory. This tower is about 5-8 years old, so I think it would be pointless to put more money into it. So if I were to look for a new tower, I should go for something with at least 2 GB of system memory? Maybe 4 GB or higher to ensure no problems. Then along with DirectX 9.0c that A Nonny Moose mentioned, it should have smooth sailing regardless of the amount of plugins, etc. I put into the game.

    Thanks for the help. Much of the computer jargon is a little over my head though. I found a link with the specs of my computer: http://www.pcworld.com/product/29435/dimension-e520-desktop-customizable.html Hopefully that can help you guys get a better understanding of what I'm working with. And bear in mind that I have about 30.5 gb of mp3's on this computer, along with countless other files and documents. I'm thinking of the possibility that large cleanup is needed. But again, my knowledge about this stuff doesn't extend too far.

    WOO PAGE 9!!! Wow! So many pictures! I love the dense urban areas and the transition to the verdant fields of the country. Would you be able to point me in the direction of those filler lots that you used under that elevated avenue 2 updates ago? I remember having them a few years ago, but haven't been able to locate them recently. Thanks! Can't wait for more!

    Excellent maps! Can't wait to see some pictures of the city itself.
  7. Hi, All! I have a relatively simple question and I'm hoping the wonderful members of ST can provide some kind of help. This week, I just procured another copy of SC4. My intentions were to build my plugins folder slowly as I build cities, while also learning the art of lot editing to fill my maps with essentially all custom content (as we see so many members of ST do so masterfully). After loading it into my PC and downloading some of the basic plugins as a start (NAM, terrain mod, Mapper, maps, etc), I found that my PC is far too outdated for me to run this game with the intentions that I have. So how large of an upgrade would I have to make in order to smoothly operate SC4 with a deep plugin folder? I'm open to any suggestions, whether they be to simply upgrade my current system in some way or even if I should go as far as to buying a gaming computer. I just figured that the community who is always posting beautiful work filled with custom content must have an idea of the computing capacity necessary to the run the game in such a manner. I thank you all in advance for the help!

    Your ports are fantastic. I'll be looking back here for some inspiration when I begin playing SC4 again.

    Great work. Doesn't seem to be all peace and quiet in suburbia, as the chalk outline in the backyard of the house in the second to last photo reveals.

    Excellent! It's stuff like this that has inspired me to order another copy of the game after not having played for years.

    i was looking through all your pages and this is a really great cj! i like the style and the little descriptions under each picture, nothing too in depth just short and sweet.

    nice picture. the story reminds me of Oak Brook, a suburb of Chicago. it has a small population but there are so many office towers and buildings there.

    everytime i see your bats i want to reinstall the game and start playing again because they're my favorite style and you make them seem so life like. great job!

    awesome pictures. i know this is supposed to be in northern europe but that last set made me think of some small town you'd see down south maybe say georgia or alabama or mississippi in like the early to mid 20th century. beautiful pictures.
