  1. SM2 Abandoned Train Stop

    Version 1.0.0


    SM2 Abandoned Train Stop. This train stop has been sitting in my hard drive for too long. Time to release it!. Best plopped in those seedy parts of town....or industrial areas perhaps. Plop cost 3000 Bulldoze cost 300 Power req 44 Capacity 7500 It still acts as a passenger station plus it will let freight trains go through it. No dependencies and as a bonus it is also Maxis vanilla rail compatible. Works like a charm! Enjoy. Simmer2
  2. Just a little photo

    The story behind this abandoned subway will be told once i finish my city.
  3. Abandoned Subway

  5. 30 Years After Humanity

    From the album Photoshop Challenge (S3-05-E)

    This is for the Photoshop Challenge!! A scene depicting a once bustling city center covered in overgrowth after it was reclaimed by nature. 30 years ago all of humanity was destroyed, leaving behind their many creations and constructions to slowly rot. I won't bother running through the list of things that have been done to this scene because I'd be sitting here all day! Instead, here's a "Before" picture: http://i.imgur.com/hUS3Y0X.png
  6. Abandoned train station

    From the album Lindenboro

  7. After browsing the sad topic called "The ones that didn't make it to the STEX", about planned BATs that didn't quite make it to the public. Then started browsing the interweb for planned projects around the world that didn't happen. Well, when I say "around the world", what I actually mean is "Around Sweden", but never mind. This is a thread to post obituaries to lost greatness. Let's begin with some of my favorite picks from Sweden, or more specifically, Stockholm. First up, Thor's Towers. I love that name. Originally supposed to be taller and look completely different, they were scaled down and replanned because city residents thought the original suggestion was (this is incredible) too boring. I admit these look a million times better though, so I won't complain. Now people are instead saying they're too ugly. Yippie-ki-yay. And then, Tellus Tower. A pinnacle (quite literally) in architecture. At a planned 270m tall, it's supposed to become the tallest building in Sweden and 23rd tallest Residential building in the world (2nd in Europe). The plans are still being tossed around, but knowing the swedish people's taste for previous modern architecture propositions, I have a feeling where this might be heading. I know I'm making hasty premonitions here, but I have good reasons. As one strong example, here's the previously planned new building for Stockholm's central station. Right before construction was to begin in late 2010, someone said "You know what, this looks too good" and now instead there'a black box. There's also this. Slussen! The pride of Stockholm. The first cloverleaf interchange in Europe, at completion in the 1930's it was made to fill in it's duties several times over, have the capacity to handle three times as much traffic as it usually did on a normal day. Eighty years later however, that figure has changed. It now has to deal with around three times more traffic than it was originally made for, and that's on a good day. Politicians keep saying it needs to be updated, but ask the people and that's a no-no. "It's a cultural heritage, you know! We must preserve this honestly very ugly junction at all price. I shall do what I can by complaining about Stockholm't traffic situation until they come up with a better solution!" That's Sweden for you. Highly modern right-wing country in every aspect apart from city development.
  8. please i still cant understandt why i have abandoned buildings. query tool say me that no electricity or not water. but i have electric and water anyway. u know where is problem? and i have several abandoned landmarks too. without reason. i think can be anbandoned only use buildingsas commercial or residential but not landmarks. and i have. so if i click with query tool to abandoned building there is reason that is abandoned because not electricity. but as i told i have electricity. i just tolking that the reasons why is abandoned is not thrue... so i dont know why. help me please somebody.. thanks
  9. I am running SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition for Mac (the one that is in the Mac App Store), and the route query says that sims are commuting to abandoned commercial and industrial buildings. Is there a way to fix this or is it normal?
  10. You know that error you get when you claim abandoned cities on multiplayer? The one where you need more content? So, you get all the DLC, and you still get it? Well I have the solution. You have all the dlc in ONLY AMERICA. You heard me right. I'll show you right now. Play Micromania Media Markt Telia METRO Nissan Leaf, which we know about. We only know about the Nissan leaf set, right? These other 5 DLC, these aren't forged. Look them up. They're all free. You can find the freaking scripts in SImCityUserData\EcoGame! But I'm an American, how could I possibly access these? With Origin's geo-location services, how could I access the other DLCs? Easy, by using a VPN service, or even a proxy, I was able to access these and now I have them all. I'd like to thank xoxide for teaching me how to get these. By getting these I will probably never get that error again. BTW, this does not glitch the game out in any way. When xoxide figured out this, Maxis found this one glitch where you could have 2 special DLC's at the same time, but they secretly fixed it in like patch 2 or 3. And get this guys, ITS LEGAL! PS, sorry about the misspelling of the, accidentally spelled it there.
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ239QkJfaM Part five and more trouble lurks. Nothing can go right.
  12. I haven't heard news with SimCity for the longest time. I feel like I've been abandoned not exactly the best feeling. I just want offline mode. And update 10. If anyone gets any news, let me know
  13. So i got a city with 250,000 people. And for some reason i got a lot of abandoned high wealth commercial offices. But one that stands out the most is this skyscraper located in one of the most busiest roads of the city. It has high costumers, low crime, low pollution and a lot that could make it the best location for business. The tower is also located beside residential skyscrapers. Now i want the tower rehabilitated but i failed on going so. What should i do? Additional info *120 000 commercial businesses in the city *near subway and bus station s *located in an avenue Thanks
  14. Hello everyone! I am currently playing in a few regions, but everyone seems to be offline for days, some of them are away for months. It is kind of difficult to play in the whole region without inactive players. So I'm seeking out people to either start over with a new region, or to join to the region, which I am already playing in (I don't think people would like to reclaim some abandoned cities, but still). So, please let me know if you're in. My Origin ID is mutluhakan, I have no friends. So if someone adds me, I'll think that it's one of you. Thank you in advance, have fun!
  15. Hello all... So , yesterday i was playing really hard and i made it, i finally grew a great population on a big map with a very complex transport map... As usual, i saved and left to the region, and then exited the game. I went to sleep. Today, the entire city tile was like...reseted to earth again! and my entire city was gone :'( Yet, i do have "City - Arzallum.sc4" and "City - Arzallum(2).sc4" on my folder (first one with 5mb and second with 3mb). There is any possible way for me to restore my city? I really spent many,many hours on it... I did some research and i know that if a file is corrupted, the game is over, although every case would be computer crashing or something, mine was random, i just saved,left, and now it won't load... maybe... who knows... well, if someone have a light for me, i'm on my knees :/
  16. Pauling Pass - Abandoned Airports!

    A locality full of Abandoned Airports and Army Bases! The reason for this is because originally, Pauling Pass itself never existed and people traveled by planes to get out of the area. Despite it never having any settlement, it's full of quirky things! Please Like or Comment.
  17. I've only been playing SC4 for a week, but I've played a lot of SC3k. So far SC4 is a lot more complicated than its predecessor, especially in traffic management. I've figured most of the basics out (I hope), but for the love of me I can't figure out why a particular corner has abandoned high rise buildings. Anyhow, here's some high resolution pictures, hopefully some veterans can give me some pointers. I've grown this city organically, only using the latest NAM and the Major Medical Center mod. There are two cities directly below Avignon, both heavily Industrial-Dirty. All other neighbors are empty. I haven't fully exploited NAM with puzzle pieces and trams/FLUPs/pedestrians yet, but I'll get to it soon. Abandoned Due to a Long Commute Time - I've built a spaghetti of diagonal subways, tunnels, and a moderately effective highway system. I know Sims take the shortest linear path instead of preferring highways, and I've tried to connect most areas with avenues or highways, I'm still not quite sure what the problem is. I've read up a bit on the traffic simulator guide,, but I'm not sure how to fix this without mass demolition. Particularly, the SE corner of the island and upper downtown area is hit the worst (right above the signs.) There's also a massive spike in commute time ~5 years ago, which I'm not really sure why because I haven't built any major expansions in my city. I've only expanded in the upper Northwest corner upon the hills in a mazey neighborhood - maybe that's why? I've gotten commute time down to 2 minutes on average, but it's suddenly spiked to 20 +/-2. I'm not sure how a small subset of low density neighborhood can skew a population of 400k Sims. Fig 1. Overview. City primarily split into four land masses. Blue lines are underground highways. White lines are (mostly) obsolete car + passenger ferries. Tunnels connect the Southwest industrial / airport area to the main core residential block, and on the Eastern side industry to island residential block, and industry to western industrial / future residential/commercial block. Fig 2. The zones and major road networks. Fig 3. Traffic congestion. Looks decently okay except for some intersections. Not sure how to fix that. Fig 4. Traffic volume. I built the Eastern tunnels to alleviate the Industrial-Island bridge - not sure if I should build another underground tunnel connecting the Island's bottom SW corner to Southern industrial area. Fig 5. Subway grid. I inadvertently found out subways were awesome. Like SC3k, I built mine to be mostly diagonal so Sims only travel in two directions at most. Fig 6. Graphs. Notice the sudden peak in commute time whereas it was previously very stable at sub 2 minutes. Job and pop graph, and regional overview with population at-a-glance. Also a tangential question: there a some "no jobs" icons popping up, yet the demand for residential is at an all-time high. What gives? If I zone more residential most of them won't have many jobs to go to.
