    We have finally reach 1000 views on this CJ.In celebration I will be showing you the Downtown later today.
  2. Site Upgrade Announcement I'm pleased to announce @Dirktator has confirmed that today, Simtropolis is scheduled to receive a significant site upgrade. In the process we'll be incrementing the site's version to ST9.0. The latest major update to the IPS Suite will be applied to bring a whole host of new and exciting features. Most notably: Reactions This will give more flexibility to describe why you like a content item. It'll allow Reactions to be tailored to best suit our community, such as with custom sets & icons. Recommended Replies A way for helpful, informative or useful replies to be highlighted inside a thread. Will be a way of drawing attention to popular posts, including those providing answers to the OP's question. Content Messages Allow announcements or important info to be seen within a content item. Uses may include thread guidelines, reminders to follow, or even useful info for reference (e.g. links or images). Promoting Content A range of possibilities to improve the accessibility of content. STEX files, CJs, forum posts, the whole lot. Social media options can be explored, such as to connect with the site's Twitter as a content stream. Fluid Forum View Optionally view the forum via a topic list or grid mode instead of traditional categories. This is configurable for all users via a toggle, so it's possible to easily switch between the views. Editor Uploading Improvements Simplified ability to attach images and files to a post. Now possible to drag & drop into specific locations, without needing to insert manually. Gallery Improvements A range of enhancements for uploading Gallery images. Usability improvements also introduced for albums, and also the navigation with the image lightbox display. City Journals Sidebar CJ authors can optionally add a sidebar with information about their entries. This uses the post editor, so text or other media can be added. HTML access available on request. Letter Profile Photos The default avatar replaced with a random coloured background, featuring the 1st character of a username. This will only affect users who haven't changed their avatar from the anonymous grey silhouette. There's also the Clubs feature, which will restore a similar functionality to the old Groups. The advantage here is it's integrated and built into the core software, whereas previously it was a 3rd party plugin that was made incompatible. We won't be rolling out the Clubs immediately, but we have some ideas on how they can be used more effectively this time around, since they'll allow more options. Plus a visual overhaul and an assortment of other minor changes. Along with a few other surprises in store coming soon, so watch out for those too... Expected Downtime Since this is a larger update than usual, the site may be unavailable for a slightly longer period. It's scheduled anytime from 12pm noon EDT / 4pm UTC onwards (view clock), and we anticipate this will be no more than 1 hour. Should the downtime be prolonged, please check our Twitter feed for progress updates. Bugs & Stability The new version has been released in a client beta for several weeks, meaning stability has been tried & tested. However as is common with any new software product, there's a chance for undetected bugs to crop up when applied in unique environments. Please bear with us if there are any instabilities to start with, and report them below or in the bugs thread. Feedback We'd love to hear ways the site and the above features can be improved or best implemented. If you've any ideas feel free to share them below. We'll also be opening threads specifically to gain feedback on specific aspects within the next several weeks. Thanks everyone, and we hope you enjoy the new site!
  3. Big update

    Before assuming that I will cancel this project I will not cancel this project at all but it's taking a new route.So I made a decision to start the entire project over as completely rural.Why?I've lost interest in developing urban areas and felt like I couldn't do rural and urban at the same time so in response I decided to start over the project as rural.You guys might not be happy about the decision but I just felt unwilling to do urban areas.I also promised to slow down the entries as I realized how much I did on this city journal.Thanks for the support and it keeps me motivated to continue this project.
  4. Update

    Hello guys so it seems that you guys have been following Arden County for a long time.I am not halting the project or canceling it!I'm starting a new West Coast city called San Abuela.I have a collection of the assets/mods needed for Arden county so I should be able to Redownload all of the assets without any problem.Here's the link to it http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=904757374
  5. Bad News guys

    Everyone who has been following my Arden County project,I've planned to stop working on this until I get equipment that can run this game without issues.For now I am shifting my focus onto European Cities for now.I plan to use less assets than I would use in American cities.
  6. Guys I have an issue

    So I've played around with the disasters and didn't realize I saved the game while it was Occurring.I have forgot to make backup saves,Now I can't turn off the disaster and I might have to restart everything!Damn I have some bad luck.
  7. Nominations Open March 13th - The Trixies are here, the Llamas are here, and this time we're heading back in time! It seems like an eternity since the Trixies were last held, and we can't wait to go all the way back to the start of 2015! The Trixies are a celebration of all types of community contributions, ranging from STEX uploads to CJs, all the way to forum posts. It's the perfect opportunity to celebrate all the amazing content shared over the past two years, and give a special 'thanks' to your fellow members. We last held the Trixies for the year 2014, so understandably, we have a lot to catch up on. So this year, things will be a little different. We won't be holding just one ceremony, but two at the same time: One each for 2015 and 2016. Since the previous awards were such a long time ago, there will be a prelude in the run-up to the start of nominations. Here we invite everyone to discuss content shared during 2015-2016. What were your favourites? Alongside this, we will also be posting special features, including retrospective lists of uploaded content, and interviews by some members, highlighting their experience over the last two years. The purpose of this build-up intends to help everyone make informed decisions, with a broader perspective. Not be told who to nominate, but just reminded of who could be potential nomination candidates. The Prologue Over the next 3 weeks we will be holding a series of events to celebrate the content uploaded over the past two years. This will start here in the Trixies Forum with a community discussion of memorable content which you can recall, or may otherwise be overlooked. The discussion will be complemented by retrospectives on uploaded content, where we post summaries of 2015-2016 content. There will also be interviews with members, giving their thoughts of notable contributions over the period. Community Discussion I can hardly remember what was for breakfast, let alone the memorable items some 700 days ago! So when trying to remember what happened in 2015 my mind goes blank. That's why we are hosting a way which everyone can discuss uploads, CJs, forum posts or just members in general who have shared amazing creations from the past two years. The principle behind this not to form a consensus on who or what is deserving of a Trixie. But instead, a place to discuss content we have admired over this time frame, or items which we think might be overlooked when thinking back on all the amazing creations from the past two years. Use the link below to discuss content from the past two years. Retrospective Lists We want to make sure that there is a place which you can go to find everything that has been uploaded from the past two years, specifically in 2015 which is a long way to look back through in the STEX. In the coming days we will feature a series of lists which highlight content uploaded to the STEX from each year. CJs were harder to list, so we ask that for CJ retrospectives the Community Discussion topic is the best place to remember your favourite CJ. These lists should help you find STEX uploads, and remember items which you may have forgotten about. Member Interviews There will also be a series of interviews with different members on their experience with content from the past two years as well as their involvement with Simtropolis. We've tried to interview members which we haven't interviewed before, and these range from people you will have heard of and talked to before, to some members you might have only seen in passing. These interviews will try to highlight content which they have valued from the last two years, usually focusing on areas of the site which they are involved in. These are, at times, subjective, so we ask that you don't take their opinions as definitive fact, but rather as another view on what has been uploaded in the past two years. You'll find these uploaded in this forum, where you can comment on their interviews and they may respond to comments and questions that you have. These are just opinions, and your final nominations can be of whom ever, and what ever, you feel deserving of the award. Award Category Ideas As part of the build-up, a suggestions topic will be opened for the award categories. Here we invite you all to share ideas for the various awards you'd like to see make up the default set. Last time the list was greatly simplified, and looking back, this may have actually made the process more restrictive. So now, let your imagination run wild! There are BATs, but what about styles? There are CJs, but what about variations? We can't promise all ideas will be selected, but whatever they are, we'd love to hear them. Changes to Nominations For these Trixies we are changing how to nominate members, and how many times a member can be nominated. Since the site upgrade of 2015, the old nominations system was made incompatible. So this year, things are going to be slightly different. We will expand on these changes closer to the nominations opening, but a summary of the major changes are listed below: Forum Nominations Previously nominations would be submitted via a dedicated page with a category selector and a plain text description box. But this time, nominations will be submitted in a special forum which will open at the start of the nominations. This forum behaves differently than others, in that no one else except the Admins are able to view your submissions! So post without hesitation in that forum knowing that your nominations will remain incognito. A major benefit of this method is that you are able to edit any of your posts throughout the submissions period. So as you keep remembering people to nominate, you can continue editing or adding new nominations until the closure date. While in previous Trixies you could continue submitting new nominations, this method means you see all of the nominations you have made, so it's easy to remember what/who you have or haven't nominated yet. An simple and straightforward way to stay on top of everything. So say goodbye to spreadsheets! Once the categories are finalised, we'll provide a full list so that you don't miss any awards to choose from. Of course, you may also create custom awards which aren't included in the default set. It may seem weird at first, but everything will stay private, we promise. Rule Changes This year we are making a slight change to how many times you can nominate a member. Traditionally you could only nominate any given member for one award. But this time, this rule is being expanded. It used to be that someone would only create amazing buildings, or only write beautiful CJs. However, now we have members who cover lots of different parts of the site, for the previous Trixies it was increasingly difficult to nominate them for just one award. This year we are making the change to allow you to nominate a member for up to 3 different awards. We hope that you submit multiple nominations for a single member to awards in different sections of the Trixies, but we aren't making that a specific rule as there are awards in sections which relate to very different skill sets. Use this new ability wisely… Cities: Skylines It's time to welcome the latest city-builder to our great Trixie Awards! This will be the first year C:S participates in our great ceremony. Just remember, the Trixies are a celebration of Simtropolis contributions, so only items here on the site are eligible to be nominated for an award. Understandably, there are thousands of Workshop items, so C:S content on the STEX is only a fraction of the overall selection. Considering this, Workshop items can be nominated, as long as they're created by an author who is a member here at Simtropolis. We can't wait to start sharing the love and celebrating what our community has to offer! Here's to another memorable Trixies, let the party begin!

  10. City Journal Announcement

    (Note: I don't know if this announcement is in the right area. Staff members, feel free to point me in the right direction.) If you have downloaded my map by the name "The Sparkle Kingdom", you'd know what I'm talking about. If not, and you want to, search for it on the STEX. I can't post links. I have come to the forums to announce my city journal by the name of "SparkleCity." The project is to create the most realistic city journal on all of simtropolis. I really want everything to be as detailed and realistic as possible, and it will take me a while to get the first update out. I you're wondering if I'm going to make it a multiplayer affair, the answer is no. I want to do all this myself and make sure there is nothing inappropriate on the map. F.A,Qs When will the CJ be released? In short, expect a release in the fall of 2016, sometime in September specifically. I'm not giving exact dates to people outside my high school as of yet. Can I Help with the CJ? As I stated above, this project is not a multiplayer affair. The region will only be hosted on my home gaming PC. However, if you want to download the map, (Without anything built) it is available on the STEX. Looks like that's it. Again :I don't know if this announcement is in the right area. Staff members, feel free to point me in the right direction
  11. In the last few weeks I experimented with the graphic settings of the game, especially LUTs and shadows. The result is the Softer Shadows mod and the Neutral Color LUT. Both will be used for asset reviews. Here are the settings and mods I want to use in the future: Here is a direct comparison between the previous setup and the new setup: The shadows are brighter, colours are less saturated. Unlike other LUTs, the neutral LUT does not alter the colours or the contrast. Here are a few more pictures taken with the new setup: What do you think?
