  1. Tour of Africa: North Africa

    The tour continues as we venture into North Africa, and our first destination is the ancient royal capital city of Fez, Morocco. In the heart of Fez's medina (an ancient walled city, without streets) you can find the stunning Chouara Tannery, one of Africa's most unique wonders. For nearly a thousand years, the locals have been tanning and dying their hides here - if you can get past the pungent odor (its suggested to hold mint leaves near your nose while visiting) it's a destination that you won't want to miss. After an extended trek through the Sahara Desert - we find ourselves at the shores of one of Africa's disappearing wonders, the once great Lake Chad. Climate change and overuse by the locals have turned much of the lake bone dry, and its estimated that the lake is only about 1/20 of the size it once was back in the 1960's. While much of the lake is long gone - there's still a number of small communities dotting the receding shorelines, with the locals adapting to the changes and making the best of what they have. We venture back out into the Sahara - and for anyone traveling in these parts, its vital to know where the closest oasis is. Water is a precious resource here - and it could be hundreds of miles before you find the next closest source. After traveling east through the seemingly endless Sahara Desert - we finally reach the Red Sea. This salty, hot sea is some to some of the most unique animals and underwater flora in the world, and the coral reefs here are quite amazing. While other coral reefs around the world are slowly dying due to climate change - the ones here are unique in the fact that they don't bleach and are extraordinarily resistant to rising temperatures. We travel into Egypt - and no visit is complete without a trip to the legendary Nile River. The world's longest river runs through the heart of the country, providing farmers much needed water and making this one of the most populated regions in all of North Africa. Riverboats run for much of the rivers length here, making it an excellent way to get up close views of the surrounding villages and archeological sites. The tour wraps up with one of the most famous landmarks in world and the only remaining wonder of the ancient world - The Pyramids of Giza. These unmistakable structures were built by the rulers of ancient Egypt back in 3000 BCE - primarily as tombs for pharaohs and queens. Despite the fact that their sparkling white limestone exterior is long gone, as well as many of the surrounding structures - they've stood the test of time like few structures on the face of the planet. Be sure to visit at night - the entire complex comes to life as the pyramids are lit up - an unforgettable sight.

  2. 4gb_patch?

    Found this patch but I'm not sure about it. If you know and/or installed it, could you share your opinions? I have an old dedicated XP and a newer Win8.1 one.

  4. Greece - Part III

    Our tour of Greece begins with one of its most recognizable landmarks - the iconic windmills of Mykonos. Windmills used to be a defining feature of the Greek landscape - you could find hundreds of them dotting the various islands. Today, only a handful remain - and the ones in the best condition can be found on the island of Mykonos. Built back in the 16th century, they once harassed the powerful northern wind into grinding wheat. While no longer operational, they still serve as one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. We continue to tour the islands - this time, stopping in Crete and visiting its famous ruins of Knossos. Called "Europe's oldest city" - people once settled here as far back as 7000 BCE. The first major palaces were built back in 1900 BCE and became one of the greatest sights in the Mediterranean - it was far more complex and flamboyant than any of the other palaces in the region. Around 1700 BCE, massive earthquakes struck the region - initially destroying the palace. Over the next couple hundred years, the palace was destroyed and rebuilt a number of times, due to volcanoes, more earthquakes, and invaders - and was ultimately abandoned around 1375 BCE. While much of it remains in ruins today - there's still plenty to do and explore, making it another popular tourist destination. We head to the mainland where we'll visit Greece's most famous landmark - the Parthenon. Part religious temple (dedicated to the goddess Athena) and part treasury - this iconic structure was built between 447 and 432 BCE and stands high over Athens, at the top of its monumental Acropolis. While the structure was in decent condition for many centuries - a Venetian siege back in 1687 caused much of the damage you see today, as nearly 700 cannonballs were launched into its famous columns. We head further north, into the incredible landscapes of Meteora. Since the early 14th century, the local monks have been building monasteries high up on these steep rocks - there's really no other place like it on Earth. While most would associate Greece with the sea and sunny days - its not uncommon to see snow here, as the mountains will essentially block out gusts from the sea, causing massive temperature swings. No matter what time of the year you visit though - Meteora will still take your breath away. We head back into the Aegean Sea to visit one of Greece's most beautiful islands - Santorini. A massive volcano blew the top off of this island back in 1646 BCE - drastically changing the look of the island and turning it into one of the most unique destinations in all of the Mediterranean Sea. Today, beautiful white villas flank the steep cliff sides - and the views from the top make for an unforgettable trip. We head back south - making sure to stop at one of the most stunning ruins in all of Greece, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion - located just south of Athens. The Ancient Greeks picked the perfect spot to honor their God of the Sea - the views of the ocean from here are absolutely incredible. Built back in 440 BCE, it was never fully completed - but still served as an important place of worship for many decades. Our last stop is one of Greece's most beautiful and stunning destinations - Navagio Beach, located on the island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea. Back in 1980, the freightliner MV Panagiotis crashed into the beach after a night of stormy conditions - and it's been abandoned ever since, giving the beach its famous nickname of "Shipwreck Beach". Between the crystal clear water, pristine sand, and towering limestone cliffs - its a perfect place to spend the day. Note: To make the Navagio Beach scene, instead of using a cliff mod - I ended up creating my own BAT to get the best result. If anyone is interested in the model and wants to try their hand with it - feel free to PM me Don't forget to comment, like, and follow True Earth if you haven't already! -korver --- Previous Update: "Tour of Africa: North Africa" Big thanks to @_Michael, @Toby Ferrian, @redfox85, @CorinaMarie, @raynev1, @bladeberkman, @Odainsaker, @bobolee, @RandyE, @scotttbarry, @Manuel-ito, @Tonraq, @MushyMushy,@kingofsimcity, @TMTS, @Elenphor, @Jonas_Chaves, @RobertLM78, @Marushine, @mrsmartman, @Namiko, & @mike_oxlong for all the likes!
  5. Hello, someone else recently posted a similar question. I would love to get back into SimCity 4, and may upon purchase of a new laptop. I am wondering if either of these options would suffice. I also know I would have to download a copy online (ex. from Steam) and then copy over my files. http://bit.ly/2xLqco4 http://bit.ly/2xjLGZa Thank you.
  6. An even longer gap than last time - 145 days. I do apologise, but my RL has been very busy, and I've only really started playing again in the past few weeks. I've been working more of Niederbauen - filling in gaps so that it's good enough to show off. I've worked hard to compress the pictures this time, so they shouldn't take too long to load, although there is a rather large mosaic at the end. Hope you enjoy! ----------------------------------------------{--------}---------------------------------------------- 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. ----------------------------------------------{--------}---------------------------------------------- Replies for "Niederbauen - Historical Introduction" And thank you all for the likes! ----------------------------------------------{--------}---------------------------------------------- Hope you enjoyed the visit! There's more to come!
  7. Show us your rural scenes!

    Let's see your best rural scenes! I'll get it started off with a small market from rural Guinea. (More rural scenes in my latest CJ update here, too)
  8. Tour of Africa: West Africa

    Our tour resumes in West Africa - and for anyone traveling across this landscape, you'll find countless mud and thatched roof huts dotting the land for as far as the eye can see. The ones we see here in Rural Congo are simple, yet beautiful - they've been a staple for the locals for thousands of years, and for good reason. They're easy and efficient to build - and they withstand the elements fairly well. We travel further west through Nigeria and into Benin, but from this point forward, the only transportation option is by boat. We've entered one of the many swampy lagoons that dot the shoreline, and with a little help from the locals, we'll soon find one of the most unique destinations in all of Africa. We've made it to Ganvie, Benin - called the "Venice of Africa", there's really nothing else like it in the world. When translated into English, Ganvie literally means "we survived" - a reminder of events that happened hundreds of years ago. The Tofinu people that lived in the area needed a way to escape the slave trade - so they moved to stilt houses on top of the surrounding Lake Nokoué. It was their only option - and they were finally able to find peace here. West Africa is known particularly well for its beautiful beaches and scenery - and few can compare to the ones you might find on the coastlines of Ghana. With their natural beauty and an occasional shipwreck or two like the ones found in Fete - these beaches have attracted countless tourists from across the globe. As we make our way further west through the dense jungle, its a common sight to see local markets dot the landscape in countries such as Guinea. Just about everything imaginable is sold here - livestock, poultry, yams, sweet potatoes, and of course, lots and lots of green bananas. We take a look around, picking up a couple pieces of authentic African clothing as well - a beautiful reminder of our tour. Although elephants have been hunted to the point of near extinction in West Africa due to the demand for their ivory tusks, there's still a number of places to find them if you look hard enough. Niokolo-Koba National Park in Senegal is one of the best remaining spots, and jungle safaris are one of the most popular tourist attractions. Move slowly, though - you never know when a wild chimpanzee might dart across the road in front of you.. Our last stop is one of the most historically important cities in all of West Africa - Timbuktu. This desert city was once a great trading post for goods traveling from West to North Africa - back in the 1300s, you might have even seen the legendary Mansa Musa (emperor of the Kingdom of Mali) pass through these streets with his caravan. Musa himself played a pivotal role in this history of Timbuktu - with a net worth of over $400 billion, he built mosques wherever he went. This included the great Djinguereber Mosque back in 1327, among others - all of which would be turned into universities and helped to turn Timbuktu into a great educational city as well. When you walk through these streets, you really feel like your stepping back in time - not much has changed over the years, and its truly a one of a kind experience.

  9. Version 3.0.0

    668 Downloads

    The Regional Fire Station was made for building cities in which designing is more important to the user than civic operations, reducing the need to place and monitor public safety buildings. The Regional Hospital is an additional building for the same purpose. I have used the Ice Cream Truck to represent ambulances as there is not one in the Maxis props in LE, so although it may seem a stretch of the imagination, ice-cream at least associates to comfort for most people. The building props are mostly from the Disease and Advanced Research Center and Airport to maintain a modern theme that could also be applied in a futurist setting. The radius and capacity are adjusted to cover most of a large city tile. A Regional Police Station has been added to this download completing this set of public safety buildings, and an HTML Preview file added featuring the 3 lots. Regional Hospital Patient Capacity: 12800, Radius: 2800. Landmark and Park Effect: 20, 10. Pollution 10, 5. Maintenance Cost: 800 Regional Police Station Dispatches 25 cars, Strength 200. Radius: 2800. 1 Helicopter. Jail Capacity: 200. Protection Cost: 400. The Regional Fire Station covers nearly an entire large city tile with moderately strong fire-fighting strength. If placed in the center of the large tile its radius reaches close to the tile edges. This station would also fit well in appearance and strength as an airport fire station. Plop Cost: 5000 Protection Cost: 400 Center Strength: 250 Radius: 2000 Total Dispatches: 8 Dispatch Center Strength: 200 Dispatch Radius: 2000 Exterior Strength: 200 Air and Water Pollution, Garbage, 5, 3 Located under fire stations in the civics menu with a bright red engine icon. All Maxis props and lighting, no dependencies. To install copy and paste the Region Public Safety folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder. (delete the readme and preview files).
  10. STEX 20K File Quantum Dish SC4 Lot

    Version 3.0

    196 Downloads

    This is my contribution to the STEX 20K file mark. Its just a simple landmark file of the Maxis Quantum Dish. Plop it in appreciation of all the files that came before. EDIT: JUST VERIFIED. STEX Files 20,000 Yiiiiiiiiiihaaaaaa!!!!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This download now has 3 versions of the Quantum Dish. The original is the 1x1 Landmark found at the top of the LM menu. The LM is a functional industrial lot (stats below). The 2nd version is a 1x1 (non-functional) Park found in the Parks Menu. The Park lot can be used to place anywhere on a map without needing road and power connections and will not dilapidate. The LM and Park lots are identical but can be differentiated by clicking on the lot with the query tool. The stats for the 1x1 Park lot are the same as for the Open Grass Area park with light park effect and negligible pollution. On the morning of February 10, 2017 I noticed the counter was at 19,999 and I had been working on making a functional landmark from the Maxis Quantum Dish. I quickly threw together a zip-file to upload so I could claim the fame of having the 20,000th upload to the STEX. I've further developed this download, adding 2 more Quantum Dish lots and a Simtropolis lamp-post sign. The 13x2 Simtropolis Lamp-post sign is a hand-printed souvenir for fans and colleagues of Simtropolis. It is found in the Parks menu. Quantum Dish 3x3 Network Roundabout This lot is lavishly gardened and lit with lamps. Each side of the lot is connected to the street network so cars will pass through and drive around the roundabout. The street overlay textures are included in the folder with the lot. These may be used in other lots but references to the textures should be maintained to prevent duplicate loading of the textures. If another lot uses the textures a message should be included instructing to delete multiples of the same .dat file. . Landmark Effect: 25 over 15 tiles Park Effect: 15 over 20 tiles Pollution: Negligible Quantum Dish 1x1 Landmark Lot STATS: Lot Size: 1x1 Type: High-Tech Industrial Machinery Building Lot based on Big Ben 1x1 Landmark. Query: Industrial, Quantum Dish Query Sound: Machine Lot Menu Icon: Landmark Menu, purple background. Jobs: High-Tech 84 Wealth: High Monthly Cost: 0 Monthly Income: 20 Plop Cost: 20 Bulldoze Cost: 0 Landmark Effect: 40 over 20 tiles Park Effect: 10 over 20 tiles Mayor Rating Effect: +7 over 100 tiles Power Consumed: 20 MWh Water Consumed: 20 Gallons Air Pollution: 0 over 0 tiles Water Pollution: 1 over 2 tiles Garbage: 2 over 0 tiles Flammability: 4 INSTALL: Choose which lots you want to use by folder name, delete any not used and delete the readme and preview html files. Place The 'Quantum Dish STEX 20K V3' folder in your user Plugins folder. In Windows the user Plugins folder is found in \<username>\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ No external dependencies, Maxis night-lighting on Simtropolis Lamp-post Sign and 3x3 Networked Quantum Dish
