City-building game(s)

  1. Hey All, I'm pretty new here, but here it goes anyway. So I recently got back into playing Simcity 4, but had been experiencing some technical difficulties due to the age of the game, I did a little research and found out that it was not my hardware at fault (which I knew as I had only just upgraded it) but was in fact the settings within the game. One of the big issues I was having was Trees & Scenery disappearing when scrolling in game - this was due to the fact that I was using an AMD card (HD 7870 OC) and for some reason this registered with Simcity as a low-end ATI card (which it is most certainly not). I did a little tinkering and found that EA/Maxis actually enabled an additional option within the 'Graphic Rules' file for ATI Cards, I changed the options around and voila! solved. But this left me wandering just how many people have had this problem and just lived with it because they didn't want to go messing with the over-complicated Simcity files, and this then spurred me on to create something I called 'SC4Launcher'. SC4Launcher allows certain settings and stability issues to be set/solved before the game is launched. I decided to register and release it here as this seems like a place in which a large amount of people may benefit from it. The features are as follows: - Fullscreen Borderless/Seamless mode. - Auto-Update Feature to negate the need to constantly check the STEX. - Quick Launch (Launch instantly with the latest settings). - Auto-Save Feature with Interval selection. - Resolution Selection. (Auto-Detected). - Color Depth Selection. - Ability to change the number of Logical Cores used. (Auto-Detected). - Loading & Saving of last used Configuration. - Ability to set the CPU Priority. - Render Mode Selection (DirectX, OpenGL or Software). - Ability to turn audio On or Off. - Intro Screen/Movie Disable/Enable; and - The all important Force Draw On Scroll Fix. - A simple mod-manager to allow you to quickly enable & disable mods. I am aware that many of the tech savvy among you will have no use for this, as many of the features are easily enabled through command line switches, but, some of the community might benefit from this, at-least, I hope they will. Screen-Shots: I have packaged the software into an installer that should automatically detect your Simcity Installation folder, but if it doesn't, please give it a nudge in the right direction. A virus scan is also attached below, for those of you who wish to have peace of mind. Change Log: Hope you enjoy the software! And I hope this is in the correct section! Regards, Logic_

    SC4Launcher allows certain settings and stability issues to be set/solved before the game is launched. The features are as follows: - Borderless/Seamless Fullscreen Mode. - Auto-Update Feature to negate the need to constantly check the STEX. - Quick Launch (Launch instantly with the latest settings). - Auto-Save Feature with Interval selection. - Resolution Selection.

The 'Force Draw On Scroll Fix' fixes a compatibility issue that exists between SC4 and AMD cards, the fix utilizes the 'Graphics Rules.sgr' file in order to force SC4 to draw details when scrolling, regardless of AMD/ATI hardware. Please note: The file within the Zip/RAR Archive is an installer, please run it and point it to the root of your SimCity installation and DO NOT simply add it to you plugins folder. Bugs: Please report any bugs via PM or the Official thread (Link Below). Official Thread: http://community.simtropolis.com/topic/54082-SimCity-4-launcher-sc4launcher/

  6. HI this discussion is for those who are having problems getting SC4 to work properly on new PC's. This really helped me to get SC4 to work perfectly on my system so I hope it can help some one else too! First off a big problem is getting the game to render in hardware mode. This greately increases the speed of the game on more powerful systems(I reccomend duing this anyway as it increases stability). You need to add your card to the list of "fast cards" in the video cards.sgr To start go to your sc4 installation directory and locate the video cards.sgr Open it in notepad and locate your card vendor (example i have a radeon HD 7850 so my card would be under ati) **NOTE** All AMD cards regardless of manufactuer EX Gigabyte,msi...ect... go here Nvidia cards go under Nvidia again regardeless of manufacturer.** Open your video card control center (for me it is CCC) and find the device id. Mine is 6819 ** For AMD users this is under info/hardware in CCC** In the file at the end of the list of cards from your vendor add your card type in card 0x then your device id and then your card name for example mine looks like this card 0x5655 "Mach 64" card 0x5656 "Mach 64" card 0x6819 "Radeon HD 7800 Series" <======== this is my card=== end vendor "3D Labs" 0x104c 0x10ba 0x3d3d 0x1048 card 0x0001 "GLiNT 300SX" card 0x0002 "GLiNT 500TX" This enables hardware rendering for your card and should fix most errors associated with that problem. 2 more issues are setting custom resolutions as well as more stability. An amazing program I found that does these 2 things beautifully is sc4 launcher as this program allows you to set custom resolutions as well as greatly improve stability on multi core systems. It allows you to edit the graphics rules.sgr file, set the # of cores to use, and open it in a window or custom resolution.(Its great this program REALLY HELPED and fixed most all of the CTD that I was experiencing) * NOTE sometimes the region screen will flash/flicker but entering into a city fixes it. I saw another post somewhere a few months back that also taught how to edit the config file but now I cant find it anywhere so if anyone finds it I will give credit where credit is due. My PC's Specs (I'm not bragging I'm just showing that this works perfectly on a higher powered system) AMD FX 4170 HD 7850OC Gigabyte 990FX-ud3 I'm kind of new to the whole posting thing so feedback is appreciated.

    Sorry if the frequent updates annoy you people. Now I actually have some time to work on this project again The SimCity 4 Buddy application aims to make life a little easier for SimCity 4 players out there. NOTE THAT THIS IS A BETA RELEASE Do NOT expect a fully functional tool with zero bugs. I have tried to break the program in every way I could imagine to see if it broke, but I may have overlooked something. * * * Now that that is out of the way, what does this program do? Features It has multiple purposes. This early version has the following features: Manage your user folders through a friendly user interface without having to mess around with folders and files manually. Let SimCity 4 Buddy install the plugins for you (dat, rar or zip files. Multi-volume rar archives (zzz.part1.rar, zzz.part2.rar) Launch the game with a specific user folder (i.e. a Paris region, SimMars, MTP, Futuristic etc.) Handle launcher command line switches through a user interface (stuff like no intro, no audio, 1 cpu, resolution, window mode etc.) Let SimCity 4 Buddy save your game at regular intervals Let SimCity 4 Buddy identify your plugins against the central database so you can easily manage your plugins onwards - Don't worry if all of your plugins aren't identified. The database is being constantly updated. Let SimCity 4 Buddy check if you are missing any dependencies (for plugins known to the central database) Check out the support thread below to see what features are to be implemented in the future (the dependencies stuff is quite nifty if I may say so myself) Guides, support, bugs and feedback: http://community.simtropolis.com/topic/58814-the-SimCity-4-buddy-project/ Source code: https://github.com/IrradiatedGames/SimCity-4-Buddy-Project Server source code: https://github.com/asser-dk/SimCity-4-Buddy-Api
