City-building game(s)

Found 12 results

  1. Hello everyone, I recently downloaded SimCity 4 with Origin. I played the game and everything worked fine, so no problems here. So I saved my city, closed SC4 and even my entire PC, and after lunch continued playing with this city. However the next day the region still exists, but the city is not there anymore. I checked in the region folder and the city file is still there. However when loading a city from your documents in SC4 the specified city is not there. So although I still got the city file i'm not able to play with this city. Anyone who can help me with this issue? Note: I'm using a customized region, so I adjusted the config.bmp file in such a way that the size of the cities is customized. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi Recently purchased C:S and went a little mod crazy before I even booted up the game. Currently, My total assets is 656, and the number of mods is 41. All of them acquired from the Workshop Im using a PC with: Win 10 FX-6300 8GB DDR3 GTX 960 (2G) and i am experiencing very very long load times. I can't show you pics from the loading screen mod tool but i'll do my best to represent them. Scenes and assets Game Europe Loading Europe Prefabs LoginpackPrefabs PreOrderpack Prefabs SignupPackprefabs Europe NormalPrefabs Custom Assets Europe Properties InGame Total Time: 41:06 5.98GB(red since the 2 minute mark) PLEASE NOTE: during this load, all 656 assets we're DISABLED, and all 41 mods were ENABLED. When the map finally loaded i was greeted with the following So i figured to just delete the mod in question but i decided to seek advice before proceeding. Im traditionally poor at modding my games and don't want to break anything further. Are there any guidelines based on my hardware or tips I could use to improve my experience? It seems like a few of you have very powerful machines that can handle thousands of assets and dozens of mods with less of a struggle than I have. Am I too limited by hardware to mod this game and play efficiently? Edit: Just took a quick peek in-game for the TAM mod but Im not sure which it is... Edit 2: Forgot to mention the game crashed while I was moving my camera around, perhaps 2 or 3 minutes after the map loaded
  3. Hi guys, I am struggling to get my game to load correctly. I unsubed all mods when the game was working in an attempt to get the editor to work (wont be doing that again) and since this i can now no longer get into the game. I start the game and it crashes at the Paradox blackscreen. I have tried to load the game with no mods, but no change. I can however load without the workshop loaded. I have looked at my output log file but cant make head or tails of this. ? Can someone be so kind as to check this out for me Logfile - https://gist.github.com/anonymous/078fe6ea1c5e9a7a986da749d748537e
  4. SC4 isn't loading

    Ive had this problem for maybe a year now. Whenever I try to load SC4 nothing happens. I have certain preferences turned on and all it does is load a black screen and then nothing. I talked to Airman about it to see if he could help me but he was able to to do nothing. Ive tried to look in a lot of places and none of them have helped. Ive also tried to install a launcher to help but it also did nothing.
  5. Craig-Abcvs Text Loading Mod



    Craig-Abcvs Text Loading Mod It is a well known fact, that as our plugin folders, get ever larger, that our city tiles take longer and longer to load... So what are we to do while we wait for the tile to load? Well there are a few options, such as going and fixing a snack or going to the bathroom... but for those of us who have a pathological need to stare intently at the loading screen, wouldn't it be good if there was something new to keep us amused, rather than the original Maxis loading texts, which while they were probably funny 10 yrs ago, maybe we would appreciate something different to smile at while the tile loads. Never fear the Craig-Abcvs Text Loading Mod is here! 120 or so lines of all new wit from the Screw Pile Developments, South Pacific Down-Under Division... Simply place the dat file in your plugin folder, load the game, select a tile and sit back and enjoy what the game loading minions slaving away in the virtual recesses of your hard drive really think about how much stuff you have crammed in your plugin folder! If you decide that you are bored again, and wish to revert to the original Maxis text simply delete the dat file from your plugins. *Instructions on how to make your very own text loading mod are in the read-me! Credits: Pegasus - for his original PEG Text Loading Mod which I used as the template for this new version, which you in turn can now use for your own! Paeng - for the cool animated text gif.

  6. From the awesome thale5 who brought us the fantastic Loading Screen Mod. Comes a new and vastly improved version http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=833779378 even though this new version is still in testing the city load times of this version are vastly improved.. With the previous version of this mod the load time for one of my cities was 6.05 minutes and probably just the same without this mod, but with this test version that 6.05 minutes has been cut down to 1.45 minutes.. All I can say is wow just wow this makes not having to wait for ages for my city to load..
  7. I just saw this mod popping up: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=667342976 It displays custom asset loading progress and modifies the loading behavior (load only assets used in your cities). And the best feature: It supports texture sharing between assets, which decreases memory requirements.
  8. Ok, so the first time I played this I was fine, and able to play this. But now, I can load the game, but all I get is a black screen. Before this, I also could not save the game, I got a red screen, and had to close and reopen the game, just to get the same screen over and over again.
  9. Hi, So I just downloaded Cities: Skylines with a key I bought on a website and Steam accepted the key and that's all good. The game loads to the homescreen, and I selected a map where I would build, but when I want to load the map it first of all takes like 10 minutes to load it. And when it's finally loaded it is insanely laggy, which makes it unplayable. The mouse moves properly, but when I try to build roads for example it takes a couple of seconds before it is actually built, after I've clicked to build it. So how can I fix this and make it work properly? I don't have a fancy gaming PC, just an Asus EEbox or something (something that "sticks" to the back of my monitor. Also, I've tried to start the game three times so far, and the last 2 times, I've closed every program on my PC. How can I fix this?! :s
  10. A plugin doesn't show up in the game.
  11. My Cities Skylines loads slow and crashes on exit to main menu and desktop, I disabled all my mods and assets and it began to load faster from 20 minutes to nearly 5 minutes, But when I try to leave the game crashes on both exit to main menu and desktop, so I can't turn on mods one by one to estimate the loading time. Any help on how to stop the crashing and speed up the loading?
  12. Hi all This has been driving me nuts all day yesterday. I can't seem to load any of the maps from the Simtropolis website to my Sim City 4 game. I tried loading region and pressing CTRL, ALT, SHIFT & R but it won't load any of them. All I get is a gridded green terrain without water and not the actual map at all! Can someone help out as I'm not sure what is wrong with my game!! Thanks in advance for your help!! Cheers Marlon
