City-building game(s)

Found 171 results

  1. I was trying to install cam 2.1.X today and it gave me instructions to click on the simcity_1 folder and click start in the data packer window. But there was one problem... THERE WAS NO DATA PACKER WINDOW Does anyone have an answer or a fix to my problem? I tried installing LEX Datapacker and it gave me an error and I have no clue what to do.
  2. SC4 NAM Tram Station Crashes!

    So when I go to use NAM's ground tram station, specifically working with its tracks, not placing the station (no problems there), it freaking crashes the game when I basically place either types of tracks, the draggable or the single one.
  3. Strange problem I am experiencing that I have never come across in all the years I have played SC4. There is no easy way of explaining it other than showing an image. Basically, the city map height glitches upwards, so the city is 2 or 3 terrain levels higher than the tiles surrounding it. The two images below illustrate the problem, the second one showing what happens when I create a new city, and then save and exit to region. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Ultimately I would like a solution that involves keeping the developed city as I've spent a large chunk of this week building it and don't particularly wish to start again.
  4. 1486 Assets Failed to Load GG! Pretty impressive implosion this time. The wait begins. GOOD LUCK CODERS! Checks watch, wonders when we can play our modded game again.
  5. so I installed this mod, and so far I love it.... ....except for one thing: some roads, such as this avenue on the picture, have brown boxes for streetlights. did I do something wrong?
  6. Two different authors have had their assets break in the last 24h after trying to update them. I wonder if CO changed something? broken satellite dish prop: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=904028991 broken ferry: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1111278454 In the main menu when I went to "ASSETS", modtools spat out an Image Error. And C:S showed wrong thumbnails for those assets. anybody know what may be going on?
  7. Water Export Bug

    In just one city-sector, when I export water to a neighbor, the town goes completely and inexplicably dry. My pipes are connected and able to supply ample water when there's no neighbor deal. Adding a large pump (or four) is no help. On its own, the sector consumes about 30k water in a one-school town on the east side. My four large water pumps were producing nearly 800,000 water high on a western hill, far from any pollution. Direct query showed that each pump was fully funded, powered, and delivering 199,997 water. The water graph showed 800,000 supply and barely readable demand. The water map showed full, 6-square water distribution from all pipes. The pipes were one contiguous network from pumps to town and neighbors (4 connections). Then I created a neighbor deal to sell 75,000 water to one neighbor. The pipes (and town) went completely dry, except for a patch immediately surrounding my pumps. I added a fifth large pump, then a sixth and a seventh, but they only expanded the patch by the size of each pump. I ran time off the clock -- one month and then a second, but the pipes were still dry. The graph showed me pumping 1.4 million water units, and even the 75k export was barely readable, but the pipes remained dry. It's as if even a small water deal consumes infinite water. So I canceled the neighbor deal, and all my pipes filled again -- showing water out to six squares from every pipe, proving that they're all hooked together. So is there a known gotcha in water systems and deals? Is it bad to have too many neighbor connections or deals? Can water be "lost" if a connection is bulldozed while a deal exists (I might have, from the other side). If a neighbor is years ahead on its clock, is there some accumulated water debt associated with its deal? Is it bad to have my pipes connect in a ring around the sector? (I ran pipes in a large rectangle near each edge so neighbors could connect from anywhere on the other side) I am flummoxed. I don't have any modded pumps. I do have the neighbor-deals mod that makes small deals possible. I've had it for a long time, and I haven't had problems before. However, I haven't produced 800k water in one sector before either. I have bulldozed back to two large pumps, but the problem persists. I am now bulldozing all water connections, and I may bulldoze all of my pumps so I can start over. If that doesn't work, then I may declare the sector corrupted and press the restart button. What else should I try before enacting a mayor's most desperate measure?
  8. Can't type ingame

    For some reason i am not able to type in boxes for city and mayor name. All the hotkeys for zones, buildings, etc work and i can use arrow keys, even when naming. I'm currently running a steam installed copy on windows 10 with no mods installed, apart from the SC4 launcher. Has anyone else encountered this? Thanks in advance!
  9. Screen Squished in

    Ok so when my game finished the whole interface looked like this.It was like this even after the game loaded.IDK what's the problem but if any cause is found please tell me.
  10. Hey guys, I've experienced a strange behavior of 2 of my cities: both cities (each built on the biggest segments of the "New York" landscape) have reached a high population of about 480.000 and 390.000 sims. Most r/c buildings are $$/$$$ and the (little) industry consists of 95% high tech. Then suddenly things became weird. Instead of growing the cities remained static and then even started losing inhabitants, got more and more unemployment, buildings decayed and nothing seemed to be able to stop this progress. I built new avenues/highways to connect the areas and/or expanded the public transport with underground/monorail which didn't help much. I demolished whole neighborhoods (loosing 50.000 sims each) and focused on enhancing the remaining ones. But here's what makes me really wonder: now even new designated zones with perfect conditions (nearby parks/plazas, avenues, stations, mixed r/c zones) aren't getting inhabited at all or just very very slowly. In fact I have to wait 1-2 in-game years on the fastest tempo until something develops even on low-density areas. And even then, I often get only poor $-buildings with little customers or residential buildings that decay some minutes later because of too long commute time. At the same time the need for $/$$ r/c is very high ($$$ jumps around 0), the mayor rating, too (70+). I've got plenty of parks, plazas and landscape/bonus buildings. So at the moments it seems that I just can get rid of buildings and sims but without the chance of getting anything new. Luckily the smaller city is stable now (but can't grow anymore) but the bigger one keeps "bleeding" … I also experimented with new traffic concepts, tried low and high density zones, fast-forwarded for 10 years and so on but that didn't work. I've not experienced this anytime before and the cities in the neighborhoods (pop. 30.000/120.000/130.00/190.000) seem to run normal and they all are built in a similar way (much public transport, very "green", fully developed education and health systems and so on). The whole region has about 1,4 Mio sims. All cities are connected via highways and public transport and have at least one neighbor deal running (trading power or waste). I usually don't touch taxes. I'm not quite sure, if this might be more a technical problem due to my laptop specs (i5 2,5GHz, 4GB RAM, AMD Radeon 7470M, Samsung Evo SSD, Win7) and the cities became just too big or if this a mistake of my gameplay. That's why I also tried some technical tips (cpu-core: 1, adding my GPU to the graphics card list, switching between hardware/software mode and AMD GPU/built-in Intel HD, low settings etc.) but non of those could fix my issue. And of course I'm playing with NAM (v35). So, any comments or recommendations?
  11. Weird Glitch

    Alright so I was building my interchange and while I was extending a highway I got this. Any way to fix it?
  12. I have had to reinstall SC4 Deluxe due to a computer issue. After installing and beginning to play all of my lots have the dreaded box instead of trees. No matter what the lot I have all boxes and no trees. I cannot figure out which dependency or texture I am missing. I have played for years and never seen this before now.
  13. Hello everyone, I just commented in this area because I first encounter a serious problem that needs to be taken into consideration quickly: Simptropolis bug and I find myself on accounts at other players. Tonight, I logged in to my Simtropolis account, I did what I had to do and I left on other websites. Back on Simtropolis, I found myself on the account of another player instead of mine (I will not mention his name here). At first I thought it was nothing serious and I updated the page and it was all good. Then, same story, but this time I arrive on the account of the Webmaster, and even while updating I was connected to his account and if I wish I can read all these messages, do all the actions I want (I read no message and I immediately stopped the connection from ST, believe it or not). I have now come to tell you about this problem, it needs to be resolved as soon as possible, I can not accept to be logged into an account of another player, I risk problems on my behalf, and it also means That other players may have the same problem as me and end up on my account unintentionally. This is a proof that I was on the wrong side tonight, without trickery:
  14. Hi all, I hope someone can help me here, 'cause the fuc**** STEAM forum won't even upload my images (sorry, utterly upset at the moment). My problem is, that after the latest "free" patch that came with the mass transit DLS, after loading an existing or new map I only see this: Any help is appreciated ...
  15. So I've built a city hall for one of my city journals and when I loaded my savegame after I've built it nearly all of the trees are missing.Here's some evidence Before: After: As of now I have no clue what could be causing this.I've noticed trees disappear on a couple of other places in my city.I don't understand what could be causing the trees to disappearing and I am not bulldozing them.What is going on?!!
  16. When I play a certain city, the game sees to crash to desktop whenever it's on simulation in approximately 3-5 seconds, it's went one minute before but also still crashed. This city has had the simulation started on it before, however I keep the simulation off when I build new zones and such. I'm on windows 10, alienware. SimCity 4 Deluxe from Steam, and my oplugins folder is 8.06 gigs, if you need a copy of the city to troubleshoot then I'm willing to provide if what I have is not enough info
  17. Do any of you know what causes this? Certain mods? Buggy Sc4 files? Had this problem for months I have no idea, ide be so grateful for any help or info Thanks
  18. Hello! I have been playing SC4 on steam last 2 month, and since the first day I can not see my cities in the region view. I read that it is a problem genereted while SC4 is saving, and I should not do anything meanwhile its saving. However I still can not see the region view. I started a new region, reinstalling the game, downloaded a city from this page, but everything is useless. Maybe I have not understood all the problem or the problem is other. The fisrt pistureis a region downloaded from thi page (Rio de Janeiro). I can not see the sea or mountain, despite when I open the city tile i can see all the relief. The second picture is a big city built but I can not see them. Please help, Thank you! (sry for my english)
  19. Hello! I'm having trouble figuring out what is causing this issue: Before I start the drawn out process of manual debugging by elimination, which will take ages seeing as I have 150+ mods to sift through, I thought I'd seek help from the community first. The Map Theme is OWL's Mediterranean Alternative, but so far no one I've asked can reproduce the problem. Maybe I'm running out of VRAM? no idea. If anyone knows which mod is causing this, do let me know. Thank you in advance!
  20. No cars on my streets

    Hi there I recently installed SC4 Deluxe on my lap with Windows 10 via Steam. I'm starting a new city and I currently don't see any cars on the streets. Is this because a bug? I've got about 1000 sims there
  21. Maybe someone can help me? i have the ressources shown on my map, i tried to put buildings to gather them but it says "no ressources found" i even tried to drag the roads further because its said in the readme of the mod that the ressources spread 2x1 to the original point i dont get it^^ pls help!
  22. Please see attached. This is my planned highway system. I plan to use MAXIS highways with NAM 35. I may use some cross tile rail. It is likely to either parallel the highways for freight or simply be point to point or intra tile only. I have tried to follow the suggestions of: (1) avoiding near tile edge connections (2) having on/off exits far from tile edges (3) making it tree like Is this going to work or cause problems? Thank you! PS: This is my 4th shot at building on the New York map. I am hoping to get something decent this time.
  23. Hi fellow simmers. I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on what is wrong with my lighting in game. It was all working fine until recently, seemingly around the time my game decided to (randomly) start working in windowed mode when i've been using full screen since the dawn of time. I'm now experiencing some strange shading when the night time cycle runs through. The streetlights are a little blue in areas, the cars lights are on at strange times of the day, and there is strange shading in general in the city at night. I cant for the life of me work out why its suddenly started happening. Some culprits that were possible conflicts i have removed from my plug-ins, ..lamp post plugin i have removed, any plug-in changing the automa i've replaced as the original, and also tried to set my screen back to full-screen (as it was fine in that mode), which isn't working either. I've removed the -W from my exe start up for Sim city, but yet it wont run back in full-screen. If anyone has had problems like this please let me know what i can do to fix this. Ive also removed the RJ longer nights mod to try to resolve the graphic problem this but its still the same. Even in cities where i have nothing built, this bug remains.
  24. Hi all anyone know what i need to edit in iLives reader to stop this ploppable building from trying to grow. Not only is it growing when i want it to be a ploppable building, it is trying to grow on the wrong sized zone. I've identified it is the sunshine 60 building. ive set the "growth stage" to 0xFF ; and "Lotconfigpropertyzonetypes" to Plopped building; but its still growing, not sure what else i need to change. cheers
  25. My game functioned normally up untill i decided to install the NAM-Team's Network Addon Mod. I noticed my game was running slower than usual so I uninstalled NAM. Then suddently whenever I opened a city, the water would be gone, as if the entire terrain had been raised. I've tried deleting all my regions and reinstalling them, I even ununstalled and reinstalled the GAME, but I'm still having the same issue. When I open a region everything seems normal up until I open a city. The attached image shows the region and one city that I saved after encountering this issue. You can see that the water is gone and the terrain looks like it was a high mountain. I believe it's something that the NAM modified in the way in which my computer reads the games files. If anyone please can offer me a solution I would be very thankful. In case you can't open the attachment... http://imgur.com/a/4kng4 or http://imgur.com/ugqHWI3
