City-building game(s)

  1. Version 1


    Short description: A while ago, a collection of Italian-style lots – the so-called Italian Collection, by simcity4ever88 – has been restored by the moderators of Simtropolis Exchange because the files had been stored on an off-site host which is not available anymore. After downloading this collection, I realized that it contains a huge collection (more than 1,000 lots!) of partially really beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, however, some of them are really poorly modded, up to the point that they may freeze SimCity 4 upon scrolling over them in the in-game menu, and, occasionally, the lotting isn’t much better. Therefore, I’ve improved both lotting and modding of some of these buildings. Real life doesn’t allow me to do this on a regular pace, but I’ve had a little time to work on some of the lots. This is a collection of 12 palaces and villas in varying sizes and styles. They are working as civic buildings in the health and education sector. Their values are similar to the values of their Maxis equivalents, only some have deviating values. The only special feature: All of these buildings have a small landmark effect. Available languages: The item descriptions are available in English and German; the item names are in Italian due to being named after famous Italian people. The readmes are in English and German. The game will pick the language on its own. Dependencies: ...unfortunately, quite a bunch, however, some of them are candidates frequently used by me and other creators. The Italian Collection: This plugin contains all building graphics. How to properly install the Italian Collection: It is not recommendable to just put all files coming with this download into your Plugins folder! Firstly, some of the lots do not have got a menu icon, and this may cause SC4 to freeze upon scrolling over these lots in the in-game menu. Second, you may obtain hundreds of lots in your game menu that you cannot (or don’t want to) make use of them; and some of them are growables that you can’t control. Please take yourself time to read these instructions. Various trees by Girafe: These plugins contain some mayor mode ploppable trees.

  2. Version 1.0.0


    The Berlin Palace (German: Berliner Schloss or Stadtschloss) is a building in the centre of Berlin, located on the Museum Island at Schlossplatz, opposite the Lustgarten park. It was a royal and imperial palace and served as the winter residence of the Electors of Brandenburg, the Kings of Prussia and the German Emperors. The palace was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in World War II. Although it could have been repaired, the palace was demolished in 1950 by the German Democratic Republic authorities, despite criticism. The palace is currently being rebuilt, with completion expected in 2018. The reconstructed palace will be the seat of the Humboldt Forum, a museum for world culture which is a successor museum of the Ancient Prussian Art Chamber, which was also located in the Berlin Palace. The Humboldt Forum has been described as the German equivalent of the British Museum.

  5. Rebuilding a City From Scratch

    Well, prop pox struck Kendall again, and there was nothing I could do to reverse its effects. Rather than limit myself to taking pictures of unaffected parts of the city, though, I decided I had to start over. Rebuilding a city as developed as Kendall - with over 500,000 residents and most of the map developed - was a daunting task, to say the least. I was committed to recreating the city as accurately as I could, so I needed a guide to the old version of the city. Thankfully, SC4 Savegame Explorer has a feature that displays a map of all the lots, buildings, or props in a quad (depending on which subfile you open), so mapping out all of Kendall's lots and transport networks was fairly easy. The hard part was labeling almost all of them, so I knew what to plop where. I also needed to make an accurate subway map, so I referred to the in-game traffic volume data view quite a bit. My final map ended up looking like this: By following this map, I was able to rebuild Kendall exactly as it was. But rather than slavishly recreate every detail, I took this opportunity to make a few improvements to the city. One of those improvements was rebuilding all of the R-3/50 freeway as a RHW (it used to be an overridden Maxis highway). Here are a couple pictures of how that effort turned out: This is the freeway's interchange with Pacifica and Nicholasia Avenues. Based on fan comments, I decided to rebuild this interchange in a trench to minimize the freeway's elevation changes. The new version also keeps the longer offramps grade-separated all the way to their ends, which should improve traffic flow. Further down the R-3/50, I built these overpasses. I ended up having to learn about the RULs the NAM is built on in order to fix a bug that affected the avenue overpass, which led to me becoming a full NAM Team member. I also made a couple new lots to replace temporary layouts. Here's the new Arts Plaza, at the intersection of Puget and Nicholasia Avenues. For the most part, though, I just wanted to get as much of Kendall to look as it once did as I could. I'm pretty satisfied with the results; the new Kendall is as vibrant and busy as the old one was. My efforts even match up across quad borders, as this mosaic shows. I made some improvements to the campus of Royal University, Kendall, as well. The flagship campus of Lower Columbia's federal university system, RUK was founded by King Edward as the Royal College in 1733. This legacy as a former college lives on in the names of College Street (which ends at the campus administration building) and the College Park neighborhood. This is an overview of the whole campus and its surrounding area, facing west. The oldest part of campus is in the middle, with the residential annex at bottom, and several of the university's newer buildings near the top, along with some of the fraternity houses of College Park. The football stadium's parking lot is also partly visible at left. Farther down the mosaic, College Street crosses the channel into the Federal Circle business district. The western half of campus is home to Mikaelslot, one of the university's largest pre-20th-century buildings. Originally built by King Michael I as an alternative to Kendall Palace, Mikaelslot and its grounds were gifted to Royal University by Michael's successor, Brandon I. Although the former palace was quickly used for classes and office space, the palace grounds were neglected until the 1950s, when the university needed to add new facilities. Most of Royal University's science and engineering classes now take place in the buildings that were built on the grounds. The east end of campus is where most of the dormitories are located. This is another area that wasn't originally part of Royal U's campus; it was purchased from the city around 1960, when the student population outgrew the old dorms. Finally, although Lower Columbia is an overwhelmingly Christian nation, it also has a growing population of Muslim immigrants. They recently built the Malkut al-Hijra Mosque on the edge of the Kendall Heights, east of Parliament House. Its construction was controversial, due to its size and prominent position overlooking the city center. It's here to stay, though.
  6. Liaojiang District, Bristol

    LIAOJIANG DISTRICT, BRISTOL, WASHINGTON COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to Liaojiang, Bristol's famous version of Chinatown. Established in 1857 simply as Bristol's Chinatown District during the Gold Rush era of California, and became a high populated area of Chinese coming from the slowly failing Qing Dynasty of China, in hopes of a better life. Cities on the west coast like San Francisco, having Chinatowns, the trade city of Bristol's was constructed for those that couldn't find room in SF's Chinatown. This Ming-Qing style of architecture gate and wall set was constructed during the 1880s as a way to sign the area seperate from Bristol, as during this time the city had the room to build the once distant district, into it's own little 'city' with walls surrounding most of it. Though with the main train station constructed in the 1930s in Chinatown, it became more decorative than actaully roping it off from the city. The gates now give entrance into Sun Yat-Sen avenue, which was constructed in the 1940s during the Kuomintang Era, which will be explained more soon.. Sitting at the end of Sun Yat-sen Avenue, is the main gate into the Tang Dynasty architecture styled palace, which is called the Gate of Eternal Peace, which what the Kuomintang Nationalist Party of China had the idea of. Peace for Chinese, Americans, and the whole world. Behind the iconic gate is the now, Nationalist Museum of China, which is owned and operated by the Kuomintang Nationalist Party of China, who currently is a leading party of Taiwan and established the Republic of China in 1911, after overthrowing the Qing Dynasty of China. Though, after the Chinese Civil War, the Kuomintang was exiled to Taiwan by the Communist Party, who established their Maoist one party dictatorship in mainland China. Leaving them to ruling Taiwan, and Bristol became a major area for KMT Government officials working in the mainland to escape to. Leaving a deal with the city, county, and California governments. That the KMT could take the Chinatown district, as a safe haven to them, with 'autonomy' from city and county level. Leaving that they are exempt from city ordinances and county ordinances. Leaving the district to become revitalized under the KMT's own district council, who is connected to the present day Taiwanese government. So in the 1950s, the palace was built as a consulate to the RoC and the USA, on conditions that the land and buildings remain controlled by the district council. Though, the council and district is not allowed to have a separate judicial system, and Bristol law enforcement still has power in the district. Though, the council has security gaurds who have powers similar to police in the district. Though as said, all judicial matters must be in power of Bristol and Washington County. When the USA switched allegiances to the PRC (Mainland China) in 1972, the KMT and Liaojiang council transformed it into a museum of Chinese heritage, bringing in actual artifacts they saved from the Cultural Revolution of Mainland China, to put in the National Museum in Taipei, and the Nationalist Museum of China in Liaojiang. As well built is the Liaojiang National Hall , where during celebrations indoor celebrations are held with traditional chinese music, plays, etc. As well as often traditional chinese plays and shows are held. As well as concerts with traditional chinese music, dancing, and often food. The National Hall keeps alive the ancient chinese culture that Mainland China lost during their Cultural Revolution. Most of the original Chinatown was torn down in the 1940s-1980s during the KMT's revitalization of the district. Old 1890s-1930s city buildings were torn down in the 1970s-1980s for more modern shopping buildings that would be seen in Taipei. As a way to reflect this as a miniature Taipei instead of being your typical Chinatown with normal American buildings just with Chinese signs. The KMT, went all out to make sure the city looks as close to Taipei, and Taiwan as the KMT could get it. As seen in front of the historic Chinatown Station built in the 1930s. One of the last buildings built during the old era. It was preserved due to a small clause the KMT put in saying that this train station, out of all the buildings must remain to show remnants of the past Chinatown. Today, the station was renamed to the Liaojiang-Bristol Train Station. On Sun Yat-sen Avenue, Taipei styled shops are down the avenue, and then major towers such as the Oriental Resort, which is a prominent 5 star hotel and resort on the avenue. The Kowloon Terraces on Palace Avenue is a historic 1950s building home of the Liaojiang District Council, where district ordinances are signed. Modern skyscrapers like the Aurora Hotel, tower over the district, giving it a more unique skyline to the rest of Bristol. Behind it is the replica of the Sun Yat-sen memorial, which remains a welcome center of the museum and the entire district. It was originally a welcome center to the consulate and it's palace design and history. A overview of Liaojiang, showing it's close proximity to the city's downtown district. The Bristol district show's its unique culture and style from it's typical American city districts.
  7. Kendall Mosaics Aplenty

    After an extended hiatus, I'm proud to bring you a selection of photos from Kendall, Nyhaven's nearest major city and the capital of the Federal Kingdom of Lower Columbia. Today, I have four massive mosaics to show you, spanning most of the built-up area of Kendall. Each of them crosses at least one city border and shows areas I've never shown before, so get ready to see more of Kendall than you ever have! This first mosaic, facing east, runs from Parliament House and the Royal Library at the top, past Kendall Palace and the embassies, to the inner suburbs west of the Government Quarter. Fitzsimmons Square the the two residential squares I featured earlier are also visible. Facing south now, we start near Federal Circle, the de facto central business district of Kendall, and follow the transverse arm of the Royal Promenade from the Royal Cathedral to the Palace of Justice. After passing by Justice Park, we come to Port Brunsmjöd, the regional container port, and the marina at the Brunsmjöd village. This north-facing mosaic starts up by the northern embassy district and shows parts of all three embassy neighborhoods, as well as most of the Kendall Palace grounds. Across Gnat Creek, we come to the campus of Royal University, Kendall - the flagship campus of its system. At the bottom is the university's Dukes Stadium and the neighboring University Village. Our last mosaic for today faces west, and it's the longest one I've ever made - so long, in fact, that Photoshop had to shrink it to export it. Starting in some of Kendall's interwar suburbs on the south bank of Gnat Creek, we pass through the western half of Royal University's campus. After visiting the southern embassy district again, we reach the Royal Cathedral before moving on to South Station. Parliament House is just off-screen as we climb the hill that many residents call Flattop, which is home to the capital's largest affordable housing projects. At bottom is the R-50 freeway and its complex interchange with Pacifica and Willamette Avenues.
  8. Norige Hills(The Capital Teaser)

    .I represent the capital of Guademian Republic,the Norige Hills. Main economic, administrative, cultural and industrial center of the country. It is the biggest on the area and the population the city. Lives 3.523.117 people in city boundaries, and with suburbs about 5,5 million people. Annually the capital is visited by more than 3 million tourists. We will begin with the capital of Norige Hills. Here you see a royal garden in which the presidential palace is located, serving with 1349 to 1922 summer official residence of an imperial dynasty Rombergs... Also there is a national gallery constructed in 1355, the emperor Vincent. In a royal garden there is rather big artificial lake. The emperor Vincent invited the best handymen of landscape business to create a heavenly spot in the garden. Thousands of tourists, visiting the former royal palace and gallery, don't forget to walk at the lake and to feed ducks. Also here it is possible to drive on the carriage with horses. Next Coming: Inner City....Historic center....Squares.....Tourist areas....Subway map.... transport..... Areas and another.... But later
  9. Welcome to Pasadena, the capital of Sonora! Hello! The country of Sonora is now at Simtropolis community! Today we travel to the northeast of the capital, to reach the historic Villa Real de Hutchinson, now part of the city of Pasadena as a district more. Once there we can observe one of the oldest constructions the country: the Presidential Palace of Hutchinson, the official residence of the Federal Government of Sonora's presidency. Surrounded by two large gardens like the majestic palace stands four stories high, built originally as a summer residence for the Hutchinson family, belonging to the Western nobility. Later, with the establishment of the republic, the structure and its surroundings were expropriated by the new government, making it what it is today. This is where the prime minister welcomes important visitors from abroad. The Hutchinson spared no expense or detail front of the palace building the first railway station in the area as well to join the palace and the surrounding area with French Old Pasadena center. The avenue that crosses between the two locations is the Presidential Avenue, which divides the district into two from Cerro El Centinela to the Conception Bay, places which later show in new presentations. Parallel to this road was built years later, a new section of the P-30, as seen in the very top right of the above image. Why build it right there? The answer is simple: The desert and paradise land where it is today Hutchinson were a perfect place for relaxation and leisure of the nobility. A place away from the metropolis of Pasadena, with direct views of the Laguna Salada on one side and the mountains Cucapá (Cocopah) on the other side. Opposite the west side of the gardens are known "Hutchinson beaches", of which we'll also talk soon ... I hope you have enjoyed this historical journey through the city of Pasadena! Soon back to the center of town! ¡Saludos!

  12. Stuyvesant: Valkyrie and Scorpius

    Welcome, to Stuyvesant, a superrich city where luxury is everything. There are two main areas of the city: The business-oriented Valkyrie Waterfront, and the island of Scorpius. People commute across the city via a massive underground subway system and a high-end ferry network. Here is Valkyrie Waterfront. As you can see, skyscrapers are everywhere and congestion is off the charts. Stuyvesant is opening a bus network to try and fix this, but who would want to ride inside a metal box with 30 other people when you can hop into your six-figures sports car? This is the antiquated headquarters of Phicorp Energy Solutions, Inc. (bonus geek points if you can identify the reference! ) Its latest innovation is an engine that runs entirely on red wine! This tower is home to Via Caffeinated Items, Ltd. Their latest production is (another) lemon-lime energy drink. Yay!..ish. The business center of Valkyrie is always alive with new ideas and newer buildings. These condominiums, dubbed "Firefly Towers" by the locals, are a striking addition to the Stuyvesant skyline. And.. This is Scorpius Island! Scorpius is, believe it or not, a center for nightlife and partying in Stuyvesant. It is the richest neighborhood in all of Antara, and visiting it is believed to make one prosperous, no matter what. Scorpius is especially stunning at night, when the town comes alive. This is Phicorp Stadium, a hub for sports fans across Antara. Free root beer every Sunday! Well, not really free. Your taxes are paying for it, and every sip you take raises the rate. Enjoy! The Retenna Green is where the really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, rich people go to have fun. Average score: -10. I love this image: It shows the country club, the high-end condos, the marina, and the private school all at once. This man-made island is called The Rotunda. It gets over 500,000 visitors a year! People come from all over the world to experience its beauty. The watery thing in the pool is known as Mnemnosyne. It is believed to reflect your past at you. And that's all for today!
