  1. Long story short. I factory reset my laptop (Asus R500A with windows 7) My computer has been all out of whack since then. The computer has made some updates. Now, when I download files of ST, I am unable to extract the files. I just get a Error 0X80070073 Message. Any ideas how to fix this ? I've looked online but its kinda confusing. TLDR; Error message when extracting files.
  2. Could someone please tell me how to search with uploader's name in the STEX. Thank you mrb
  3. DK1 Anyone?

    Thanks to @CorinaMarie, I discovered 50 files of various RCI buildings, very pretty, very American, by a long gone bater @dk1. There are NO dependencies in any of the files. Many (all?) are improvements from the default MAXIS ones. Now my question: how can I place them in my plugins folder without creating more havoc. Ideally, they should stay together in a dedicated folder, but with what name? Thanks for your comments.
  4. My SC4D crashed out of use. So, after a total clean out of SC4D files and a fresh re-install, I started thinking "Why 2 copies of it ?" one in "my docs\SC4 Deluxe" and another one under "program files\SC4 Deluxe". How do they interact ? It would help me getting all my plugins/mods and assorted stuff back to the rightful places. Much obliged.
  5. I woke up this morning with a horrible crash of my SC4D. Launching it got me as far the intro bridge and it just quit. After fooling around trying to fix and loosing the morning, I choose the most radical solution : Move all SC files and folders into a new external hard disk and disconnecting it, and re-install SC4 640 version. Now I have a plain vanilla version. Good. It loads and it looks beautiful if a bit bare. My question is multiple : What should install (plugins) first and in what sequence. What extra things should I look into. Where do I find the "no-intro" and "CPU=1" things. All your considerations and tips are, of course, are most welcome. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, Continuing on from recent discussions, we think it'd be helpful to start collecting evidence about issues with STEX files. Such as: Broken formatting [Example]. Errors when downloading files (e.g. 3D161/G - File not found). Corrupted archives (e.g. broken ZIPs). Invalid or missing dependency links (e.g. [Old] >> [New]). Missing descriptions / screenshots. Irregular download counts (more downloads than views). Any other abnormality, or function not working as intended. So if you discover any of the above, please reply below with this info. The more examples of evidence we collect, the easier it'll be to determine patterns. Afterwards, it can be used for further investigation, in attempt to find solutions once and for all. Supporting details such as screenshots, abnormalities in the HTML, or error codes are also welcome. The following posts will form index lists. Regarding a STEX overhaul, we've got to begin somewhere. I believe focussing on the more serious shortcomings makes sense as a starting point. Once these are hopefully addressed, it'll become a much clearer picture. Looking ahead, it may then lead onto more ambitious projects including the previously mentioned tagging, and the ideas which @rsc204 and @Tarkus discussed (e.g. here and here), amongst others. We're in this together as a community, and continuing on, any input or assistance would be welcome. Some files are not in a good shape, much like old property that needs a little TLC. Just like an architect, although it's a fact of life, people never intended their creations to reach a state of disrepair. As a result, being fair to authors past and present, it's time to commence action for the benefit of the whole community going forward. Thanks!
  7. STEX 20,000 Files!

    Here it is, the 20,000th file uploaded to the STEX. I would have done something far more amazing if I knew, but this humble little landmark of the Maxis Quantum Dish is all I had. It has a nice menu icon, and it functions as a landmark, and that's about all, but I suppose its a symbol, a symbol of great things to come, to be, for the awesome ability of communication, and our awesome human imagination, so let it be a symbol, of hope, of betterment of the world and of humanity.
  8. The STEX stats report 19,999 files

    So there are now 19,999 files on the STEX as indicated. Who and what file will be the 20K mark? Let it be an amazing file, a file of all files, a masterpiece beyond all expectation and imagination. Let us all hope for the best for the 20K file. Its important. EDIT:
  9. I am making a mod with many copies of the same files. Nothing new. But I wondered as I create this mod, what do you think about naming SC4 .dats? Are underscores and dashes needed? I'm a PC guy, so I use spaces nowadays. I was just wondering others opinions on that topic, naming conventions. Cheers, tiger

  11. ErwinNegentig's files

    So, I was poking around and I found this video by ErwinNegentigNo2 (A re-upload channel) Thing is, I can't find the link to the rail bridge because the link was chopped. Anyone have it? (The overdeck truss bridge) Also, Post any other files that are in his REUPLOADED videos
  12. What's the best way to move SC4 from old XP computer to a new computer using Windows 8.1 or 10? Over the years, I've rebuilt my computer twice, upgraded RAM & hard drives and tried to manage SimCity files the best that I can. I would like to be able to install NAM 34, return my current tree controller back to normal and to manage older files that may not be available anymore like PEG. My hardware situation is kinda unique: I have no use of my USB ports, therefore I cannot use thumb drives. I will be burning blank CD & DVD discs to move files. Any suggestions from experienced movers would be appreciated.
  13. As of October 3, the Drag Files option does not work for me when adding en entry to a CJ , and the Choose Files function only lets me upload three pictures and then no more (I get a Timed out /Upload Failed warning). I haven't had that problem before -- and always stay below the 4mb limit. I habitually only use the Drag Files option, but yesterday I wanted to try the other one and... argh. I don't remember if the DragFiles was selectable when I hovered ; it's like, once I had chosen the ChooseFiles option, the other one became inaccessible, even when I closed and reopened the whole shebang (including my computer) and went at it from scratch. I found a temporary end-run around this, using Photobucket and the Comment window with the Image function, but it's a hassle -- and all the picts I want to use are not on Photobucket... and apparently, for some other gremlinesque reason, I can't create new albums in my bucket (Uh ??? though this has happened before ; I've asked PTBCKT Support).) So I ask here to Those In The Know (I'm new to CJ-ing on Simtropolis, being a SimPeg expat) : has this happened to any of you ? Is it Simtrop' or me ? I am a mac User --at least for CJ-ing :-) , and run the last OS. BUT, as I said, I haven't had any problems before when CJ-ing here.
  14. I am trying to locate the Region Census mod. When I attempt a search, I limit the search to files and I put the name in quotes. What is returned are dozens of file comments but no files. What am I doing wrong? When I visit the file exchange I am shown as logged in, do I need to register separately for the file exchange?
  15. Lately I've been trying to use Simcitypak to mod SimCity 2013. When trying to export the max 3ds material files while going through the step by step tutorial to create a building found on this website, Simcitypak always crashes... Can anyone help?
  16. Minceland History Mineland has had a long and interesting history. Shewn thus: Charles Barley ( Of Charles Barley hotel fame ( see last entry, or possibly the one before )) founded Minceland in 1803 as his own personal colony ( owned solely by him, and no Empire or other Nation. ) Barley ( The Person ) was born in 1750 to a wealthy merchant family, when his father Jacob died in 1771, he inherited the family business at just 21 and immediately started expanding operations, the Barley trading company, traded everything they could get their hands on; soap, wool, meat, raw materials, fine crafted pottery and tobacco, which was especially lucrative. Their trade routes eventually set into bringing food from America to Europe, Eventually Barley realized that if he could get a trade port at the tip of south America, he would be able to transport lots more goods too the west coast of America and even get access to Asia. Finding none though, he decided to build his own. Barley was here. There are no early pictures of the settlement and few artifacts, as they were mostly destroyed in the late 19th century when Barley experienced its first major expansion, having been slowly rising since its foundation in 1803, the population in 1876 was 13,194 but 4 years later had risen to ~30,000, the unprecedented growth was caused by this tiny city state suddenly getting noticed, ships often docked their by the end of the 1880's and Barley was a household name ( in trade at least ). but then disaster struck, in 1889 Britain invaded and claimed barley for its own, but the Barleins weren't deterred, and they worked hard, so as the first skyscrapers were blossoming in Chicago and New York, so they were in Barley, they were just less well known. Because of its colonial status, its fame diminished and it plunged back into obscurity, but still at least visited by ships. In an effort to Bring Barley out of obscurity, the Mayor built a commemorative statue to symbolize Barley's trading status, the statue of Free Trade. ( Images on other entries ) After WWII, Britain shed most of its colonies, and Barley was no exception. It regained its beloved independence in 1946 on the condition, however, that it become a country and not just attach itself to Argentina, So the vain Governor, Herbert Mince, gave Minceland its unusual name, and an area of 3 islands was attached to it. more recently, the area to the west of the city, was bought in 1992 for the construction of an arcology, the buildings plans were finished in 1998 after many technological hurdles were overcome ( stresses, ventilation etc. ) . the Arcology's progress is slow however and it is still less than 1/4 finished. North Barley was started as a pilot city in 1964 but didn't really kick off until 1970 when the population rose to 2000, however, it froze around there for a time before ascending some more, in November 2012, a cataclysmic but extremely localized earthquake raised the town too the ground, but global movement of industries has started a demand for Factories in Minceland , so NNB's Population has exploded in 6 months what NB couldn't do in half a century, it has reached a population of ~8000. NNB has skyrocketed so much that the government is considering a third area north of NNB, its name may be NNNB ( North New North Barley ). Now I Have Cleared all this up, I will start another update, Maybe I will actually plan it. Bye for now ~30 people. Hang on.. no-one will be bothered read this
  17. Someone should really re-think the whole mods, bats, lots etc. system. It's really annoying to get files that have dependencies. 1 or 2 dependecies isn't bad if they're easy to find. But it really sucks when there's 10-20 dependencies often posted on various sites, needing to log-on to each site. And some dependencies are really hard / impossible to find making the mods/bats unusable. why not include all the dependency files and the bats/etc... in one package ?? then there's the problem of having all that clutter in plugins folder.
  18. Recently, because my little server is out of space, I uploaded a file onto this site and used it in a reference. Now, I would like to use that file again in another situation. How do I get access to it to put a reference to it in a post?
  19. Good new website

    Dunno whether anyone else uses this site, or if it is new, but it has some good files on it. There are quite a few that I don't think have been uploaded here. Worth a look. http://www.bripizza.net/sc4/index.html
  20. I've seen people use 3DSMAX for BATs. I have looked on all the SimCity websites and nothing I have found shows me how to do this. I need help!!!!
