City-building game(s)

  1. Hello Everyone, I searched the forum's and couldn't find where to post my question. First, I am running Windows 10 64 bit, Direct X version 12, Processor: AMD A10-8700P Radeon R6 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G (4 CPUs)-1.8 GHz. Memory: 8192 MB RAM The problem I am having is Lot Editor will not run with Folders in my Game Plugins Folder. If I remove the Plugins folder, Lot Editor will start fine, then I add the Plugin Folder back, Lot Editor will not start. In Task Manager it shows the Lot Editor " Not Responding ". I have to end the Task to close the Program. I am running the Lot Editor in Compatibility mode " Windows XP (Service Pack 3). I also have the "Run this program as an Administrator" selected. Do I have to make a separate folder, Like in PIM-X ( which I have never used) and only add the Plugins I want to work with? I haven't used Lot Editor since around 2011 on a system running Windows 7 and it worked fine with folders in my Game Plugin Folder. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I disabled most of the mods, leaving on the 81 tile mod and the loading screen mod at work. I disabled all assets too. The game still doesn't load right. Either the loading doesn't finish and it turns into a blue sky, or i get into the game with the "object instance..." message many times and the game can't be played. I also can't start a new game. Same error message. I searched the web and the common answer is disable outdated mods, which I did. It doesn't work. I haven't purchased the Parklife update yet. Could that be an issue? I don't think we have to do the update in order to play the game. There are other updates I didn't install and I could play the game nonetheless. I wonder if anyone can help me here.
  3. Hey, I have a problem with my Cities:Skylines. Normally the game starts in 5/10 minutes, but this week I have to wait approximately 340 minutes to play my map. When the map is loaded I see only blue, blue and blue. Can someone help me, please?
  4. Just a few second after I load up my city, a get a message from Windows that the game has crashed, and when I click "ok" on the window, Cities Skylines instantly closes. I have attached the output and error logs. error.log output_log.txt
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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..
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. A plugin doesn't show up in the game.
  14. 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?
  15. SC4DataNode

    Version 1.06


    SC4DataNode - A Simcity4 Exemplary - is intended as a Gold Standard SC4 Audit Tool - is NOT an Editing Tool - for this there are Reader, SC4Tool, Lot Editor and a number of others. The program supports four main Tasks 1. Audit/Review of Loading Sequence, file redundancies and Overrides 2. Dependency verification (as many as possible) 3. Audit/Review of a. SC4 file integrity (.dat etc) and b. TGI file content integrity (Exemplars etc) to the Property Level 4. Exploration - a really good informative display of Exemplar Property Values and file contents so that one can learn something of how SC4 works. Tasks 1 and 3a focus on the physical SC4File View Tasks 2,3b and 4 mostly on the TGIFile view (SC4 Content) These tasks can focus on the whole SC4 Environment or incidentally scanned files/folders (or both) Potential Audiences are: - The User who wants to make sure that some new plugins aren't broken - The User who wants to make sure the game loads plugins in the right order - The Modder who wants to learn what/how things work - The Modder who publishes work and wants to make sure its correct, and will work correctly with a given environment - The SysAdmin who wants to make sure their site is only hosting quality products - Potentially programmers to make use of the functionality (of the SC4DataNode.dll) How it works: SC4DataNode loads all of the files that SimCity would load, in the order it would load them when starting a game. It then marks all files that are redundant, checks the contents for accuracy, finds the interdependencies and marks them as found or not and offers a number of views of the resultant data. This can also be carried out for any given set of files. Use the included installer (program can be installed anywhere) and you're on your way The program is written in VB.NET v2.0 and should run on any machine that can run the .NET 2.0 Framework or an equivalent. It also installs one very clear to read Font. Full Documentation is accessible from within the program. (Docs Button) cheers Ron May/Jun 2012
  16. 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.

  17. 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
