  1. Welcome! Saw something you liked in someone's screenshot but can't find it? Vaguely remember seeing something once, but you don't know where it is? Wondering whether or not a plugin of a certain type exists? This is the thread where you can ask for help finding things. When asking, please be as descriptive and specific as possible. This can help people to understand what you're looking for. If possible, screenshots are also encouraged. This thread is a direct continuation of the original topic, which got too big. Someone might have already been looking for the same thing as you, so checking there first might get you your answer faster. P.S. If you would like a particular BAT to be made, please request it in the BAT Request Thread.
  2. While playing on a custom map from Steam workshop I noticed that after reaching a population of around 80k, even on 3x speed that game runs slowly (but no lag, I have a fps counter). Later on I found out that my CPU maxed out and that it was using all of it's power to run it and it wasn't keeping up. Is there anyway to stop it from maxing out without buying new hardware? Currently using i5 1.7 GHz cpu, 8gb ram. 1tb harddrive (I know low spec right? but im poor AF)
  3. People have always asked for help by tagging me in this forum or messaging on steam or reddit. This thread is: A discussion about my tutorials, scripts and source files. A place for anybody to get help with whatever you think I'm qualified to help with. You can ask me about 3ds Max, Photoshop, ModTools, scripts, some basic modding and reverse engineering, game files... I guarentee to respond in text or with a very quick and short "tutorial" video if it's appropriate. Do not request assets or ask extremely broad questions like "how to make assets" here.

  4. Hi guys, I need some help in how to reconfigure or replace my heavy rail inside my existing city. Some info, my city is a medium density city which is primarily based on pedestrian and public transit use. Currently inter-region travel isn't very big, but I am planning to build some out suburbia and maybe some industrial areas outside my main city. The subway, buses and light rail have been going pretty well, but I kind have ignored the rail built earlier. Instead of building my city around the old heavy rail, I have built my city over the rail. It has resulted in some messy, and unrealistic railway crossings. Within the city there are only a few stops, used well enough I guess (it is important for some sims travel to outer areas), but i want to invest in it for the new outer developments. There are just 4 lines. I like the idea of elevated rail in the inner areas, but monorail or elevated rail looks kinda silly on the ground in the country side. Would an elevated rail to heavy rail be a good idea, or is that a bit buggy? I think I planned to turn the heavy rail into underground rail when the town became a city, but underground rail seems a bit complicated to me~ especially passing it underneath tram intersection roads.
  5. We all had this issue, we had something that was so challenging we couldn't figure it out! I hope that this thread can help us out more, if you have any trouble with an assignment, simply ask here & hopefully one of us can figure out what the heck your professor/teacher/whatever is asking to be completed, rather its confusing directions or a confusing question.
  6. Hello all, I got a bit of a problem with my game. For some odd reason it doesn't let me load or create games at all. http://prntscr.com/g9p2c1 Is there a way to fix this?
  7. Hello everyone! My name is Gilberto (as seen in the profile ..) and I would like to know if there is any Brazilian, or someone willing to help me understand the forum perfectly, I am new but I love SimCity, there are no forums of SimCity active in my country .. Sorry if there is something written wrong, I used google translator, I do not know if this breaks the rules, but if it's broken, forgive me. Thanks to everyone! (Y)

  9. Hello, I started doing 3D modelling about a month ago, unfortunately after having done 3 different buildings in blender I just haven't yet understood the texturing system. I have tried to do seams and such, but I just can't manage to fit all the details correctly, so here are my 3 main problems on my latest building, which I aim to hopefully finish: Too many faces so I cannot do the texturing easily (1,014 faces and 3,300 tris after trying to merge what I could.) How do I proceed with doing balconies? I heard something with using textures, but as said before, I am confused with them. How should I proceed with texturing generaly. Here are two pictures of my project: Again thanks in advance for any possible help.
  10. I want regions and / or cities to play offline because I find the map so empty and it is difficult to grow without help from other cities , thanks <3
  11. Hi! So I was in process of building and improving my city then I notice that I'm bulldozing homes left and right with Sims saying there "isn't any shops or parks" yet I have said shops and parks built all over the place in my city as well as bus stops connecting from their homes to them so they can have access. Am I doing something wrong or are they just never happy? Not only that, but I also have lots of businesses in dire need of workers and Sims are also leaving claiming they "couldn't find work" yet I'm getting screamed at to find workers. Also mention the bus stops connecting to said businesses from said homes. So again, are they just never happy or do they just not want to look like I'm having them do? Thanks in advance!
  12. MOD Help.

    I need a little help with some mods. I downloaded a few mods, I installed them to my Progamfiles(86x)/Steam/Steamapps/common/Simcity4/Plugins, but when I place them on the map they only show up as concrete slabe without the building. I would really appreciate some help on this, as I downloaded close to 50 mods and I don't want to have to delete them and reinstall, so any help would be much appreciated.
  13. I'm attempting to import an airport model into Cities: Skylines but all I have tried has failed. I have used 3ds Max but every single time I try, the textures are messed up in-game. I haven't tried Blender because I just don't know how. Has anyone got any tips? I've been trying to do this for at least 8 hours now. Please help me out.
  14. My buildings are disappearing, And I do not why. Please , someone help me
  15. When dealing with a grayscale image, 8-bit,. what is the darkest RGB value that is still buildable land and what is the lightest water value? Like if I wanted to create a flat region with some water. Various websites give all kinds of values for these, no two websites tell the same values, but none are correct. They end up being all land or all water despite that these websites claim that RGB value x is water and RGB value y is land. For example one websites says RGB value for land is 88 and water 85 meaning that all three RGB values are 88 and water 85. but when I load an image to both Terraformer and SimCity 4 itself (ctrl alt shift r), it ends up being all water. This website was incorrect. Another website claims that the values are 83 for water and 84 for land but that is still all water in both the game itself and terraformer. I don't have any height mod or anything, so I don't know why that the values of these websites are not generating terrain like claimed. There has to be a different value that is correct for land and water, but I seem to cannot figure it out. These websites seem to be incorrect. What are the RGB values I need to use for land and water for creating maps? Thanks
  16. this is what's going on, i downloaded this building from 3D warehouse, and i opened it up in sketchup2016, then i exported it as a 3Ds, then i tried importing it into BAT, BUT when it render it in BAT, it doesn't have a texture on it, it's just the shape of the building colored white.

  17. Hi, started learning how to do basic 3dmodelling & custom assets for skylines about a week ago, so i'm bound to face problems. My issue now is that I made a tiny 2 x 1 building but the editor will always auto expand it to 2x4 regardless of what size i choose. I could scale my model bigger to fit a 3x2 lot but that would be too big compared to the IRL version. I really want to stay within the 2x1 size. If someone could help/explain to me what i'm doing wrong i'd really appreciate it.

  20. SimCity 3000 Unlimited

    Hello, I just recently came across a old copy of simcity 3000 unlimited. I have tried to install it on my x86 windows machine and want to get it to run, but only the start menu runs and upon launch of the game it crashes. Can anyone be of assistance in doing so? Thank you.
  21. hey I have a question, what are the actual rules about banners and stuff in forum signatures? like if I wanted to make a graphic that linked somewhere else what are the rules about that? animated vs not animated, etc.
  22. So i downloaded the installer of CAM and opened it but it says it cant find the SimCity 4 Installation path, i installed SimCity 4 correctly and the install path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe, it is installed correctly but it seems like it can't find the installation path, tried reinstalling but the problem still occurs
  23. What mod?

    1: What mod is the sunken highway walls? http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p184/CorinaPics/TSM.E3 Walls_zpsejhhtdv9.jpg 2: Those ploppable trees that are put between the zones 3: And the ploppables between the one-way road avenues http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p184/CorinaPics/TSM.E3 Trees_zps1zljvw8x.jpg
  24. Welcome! This topic is meant to be a sort of database for my upcoming and future projects, and a place to discuss them. RULES: No Profanity Be Respectful to All Keep Posts Relevant to the Topic
  25. I subscribed to the find it! mod shortly after release, and for a while it worked fine. However, in the last few days of playing the search box no longer appears in my game, just the list of all assets, props, etc. (Same as it would if you selected the "all" tab, none of which no longer appear either) I thought that maybe a mod was causing it, so I deactivated all my mods and reactivated them 20 at a time, while testing on a new city. Problem is, even with all my mods and assets enabled, the mod works fine on a new city, but not on my current city. I've tried looking for answers, but can't seem to find any reason why the mod won't work on my particular city. Does anyone know or have any ideas as to what might be causing this. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
