  1. Amazing experience

    Hello, guys and gals from equal opportunities everywhere. Welcome, unsung heroes and creators everywhere. I would like to say thank you to everyone that has ever graced this forum in the entire world. From Japan eastward to Alaska, from Greenland southward to South Africa and all points in between, I would like to say thank you for everything that you've ever done over the last 14 years. I know some of you are moving on to other projects, like Cities XL, SimCity 2013, and Cities: Skylines. I want the remaining people working on Simcity4 Deluxe to know that I'll be giving out olive branches to every single one of them for not abandoning the SimCity 4 brand. Having played SimCity 2000, SimCity 3000, SimCity 4 Deluxe (Windows and Mac), SimCity Societies and Cities XL and Cities XL 2012, I am very well aware of the kind of stuff that I've played. I have a plethora of plugins in my folder. Your continued focus on City building, modding, and editing is unreal. Every week, I see new buildings created, and I'm watching Cities: Skylines from the outside looking in on Youtube, looking at the amazing style and creativity of the developers, wishing that I could somehow build cities in a new way. Thank you, guys, for ten years of support given to me. It would be fantastic to see some more neo-futuristic to futuristic buildings with population or jobs being created by your team into the Simtropolis Exchange. Maybe you could make some buildings CAM-patible, like the Shanghai Tower, for instance, or maybe one or more of New York City's supertall residential towers. I like what I see. Keep doing your work. 14 years? Wow! Usually, after 14 years, a game has long since died. I'm glad City Building games are still around, especially this one.
  2. Teiko

    Ok so, first off, this is my first time making a city journal, I hope I do make things right (quite a nervous newbie here). So, I am working on with a new city, Teiko Metropolitan Area, although technically it is not that new since I have already created a dozen districts in the region already. I just decided to make a CJ because I also want to track the growth of the region, a lot of fresh green lands at the right side that has not been touched yet! Furthermore. you will notice that all of the names are in Japanese well this is because I'm taking the names from my favorite anime (if you are a fan, you probably know it from the title of this journal). Also, I am not very good with terraforming so I usually just use pre-made regions, I am more concerned with creating realistic cities and giving them dynamics. Anyhow, enough introduction, let's get down to business. I should probably start with a little journey through the city. This is Teiko Metropolitan Area, a region in a making, current population is 678,664 inhabitants. I would like to show you all the districts but first off, I will start with Kaijo District since this is the first district in the region and is one of the major industrial centers. If you are looking for it above, it is exactly to the right of the middle of the image. Welcome to Kaijo District. First off, there are two ways to get into the city. 1. Most people ride automobiles through the highway or via road connections. This one is the connection to Kamata South (2nd largest district in the region so far, though not quite it look like because it somehow looks peaceful, it actually isn't, one can simply imagine the hell traffic this road is going through). 2. People can also the district via ferry, Kaijo has one of the busiest of waters in the metropolitan region. The image here is the north harbor. Oops seems like the ferry is not that visible, it is on the left side of the picture anyway. Ok, time to get a little trip around town. Note: Please forgive me if there are little to no cars in the pic, I had actually forgotten to change the settings. Anyhow, bon voyage. 1. Kaijo has the third largest industrial center and has the two nearly up to full capacity seaports working, making it the busiest (so far). Here is a snapshot of the industrial center close-up. Most of the factories are hi-tech and the the ones shown are into software production. 2. Here are random shots of the city center, although it only has a population of around 50000 (estimate), it does exhibit some tall commercial buildings which are somehow grouped into this one big cluster. The district enjoyed major economic boom that led to the construction of many office buildings. This is one of the commercial areas in the district. This trio is the heart of the commercial center. Well, it has nothing to do with being the center or being the tallest, it simply is that these three buildings are among the first set of 'high-rises' in the town. The blue glass building to the right is the former HQ of SZT Laboratories but the company has since transferred to a new location (Don't worry, I'll show you where.., I promise. ). It is now occupied by Kaijo Animation and Arts Inc, the largest modeling agency and animation production company in the district. It is also among the biggest companies in the whole metropolitan region but still quite a pint compares to SZT Industries. This is the town plaza, though technically one of the town plazas but most people refer to this place as the bookworms hub, you can totally see the library at the right. This place is where most bookworms hang out. 3. And here are some residential... Quite a silent district anyhow.... This district has the biggest area for low-rise housing in the whole region (so far). Most of the people in Kaijo prefer low rise housing, well for some odd reasons they want to live in huge mansions that elegant penthouses. Yup, you got it, most of the people living in the low density area have high density of cash. This is one of the two high schools in the district, it is named Avenue High School. It was simply named after it because it was built along an avenue, weird huh? Here are more random shots around the town. 1. This school is the premier Kaijo High School, currently the largest and the oldest in the district. It is also the best which most of the sims say. Well but it has certainly lived up to its reputation, now this school has produced top government officials and pro athletes in the past 40 years by the way. Among the notable alumni would be Kise Ryouta who is a famous model and a proud Kaijonese. Why he so famous? You'll about to know. 2. The avenue overpass. That highway is a circumferential one, you'll get what I mean in my next update while the avenue is a local thoroughfare, it is named Kise Avenue, named after a famous model in the town because he usually does his photo shoots either at the green lush areas of the place or along the sidewalks of the avenue, well one simply cannot live without asphalt eh? . That avenue leads to the Kaijo University to the right BTW. (Sorry, I really want to use NAM but computer can't handle it for a moment, especially for big cities. Also for this reason, I don't add any mods at all except for a few building plugins). Lastly, this is an aerial view of Kaijo District taken from a plane landing in the next district. There is still only one airport in the whole region (so far). That's it for now folks! Thanks for visiting I hope to see you again. Will be posting other districts soon. Please post your comments down below....
  3. Hey guys, So I am pretty bad when it comes to technology of any kind, which is why, after years of owning a Mac, i was relieved when I bought a new PC and my old Simcity and Simcity Rush hour Cd's still worked on the new computer. As many people do, I had some great downloadable content and really customized some new cities I built....just like the old days. Then I moved away to grad school and when I came back, my computer suddenly decided it would no longer run my SimCity CD's After a little research, I figured that I had to buy a new digital edition of SimCity Deluxe off of steam, and luckily it works again. Now however, A bunch of my mods have disappeared and then most, but not all of my downloaded buildings. As many have here I'm sure...I had all of the RCI buildings as ploppables on my landmarks list, alongside many new buildings downloaded from this very site. So I tried to re-download the ones that went missing, and while it says I've downloaded and placed them into the same folders...none of it is showing up in my game. I also can't seem to get the RCI ploppables back either. There are however maybe 30 old buildings I downloaded still in the list. Does anyone know what's happening to this game and why I can't seem to fix it? Any help would be great as I really love playing this for old time's sake.
  4. Ok, this has been very frustrating, I had installed my disk version of Simcity 4 Deluxe Edition onto my Windows 7 64-bit computer with absolutely no problems. However, when I try to launch the game any way I can, it always crashes just after the process begins. It has happened both on here and my laptop, however I'm more worried about here, on my desktop. Things I have already tried. -Downloadable Simcity 4 Launcher (multiple different settings in it) -Target tags -CPU cores setting to 1 -compatability modes for XP, 98, as well as disabled themes, and running in administrator mode. -restarting the PC -re-installing the game file into Programs Files instead of Program Files (x86) -turning off sound, turning off intro, doing windowed mode and borderless mode, setting 1 CPU core for it, setting to different priorities, setting the resolution at different levels. - updating the game to 1.1.638.0, and then to 1.1.640.0 None of that which I have tried, worked. I would really appreciate it if someone can help me find a solution to this problem, it's very frustrating trying to fix the game, when you can use that time to actually play it. Here are my system specifications: Intel Athlon 64-bit dual core processor 2.31GHz ATI Radeon 4600 series graphics Sound card unknown motherboard ASUS M2N68-AM SE2
  5. I have been running into some trouble trying to patch my game with the "UPDATE_SKU1_TO_P1_B638.exe" patch. This is the error that I keep receiving when trying to install it from desktop. So I thought maybe it is having trouble finding the location of the maxis folder since its located "C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis" and NOT "C:\Program Files\Maxis", so I move the patch exe file into maxis folder and this is what I get. I have tried downloading the sku 1 version from http://sc4devotion.c...dex.php?page=16 and http://www.ea.com/simcity-4-deluxe I also have tried the sku 2 but that did not work properly, and I know the CD's I have are for North America. I have read numerous of threads here on Simtropolis and other sites, but they all seem to be the same steps that are not working for me... I can play the game fine, but I would like to install updates for night lighting and mods and what not. I have been trying to solve the problem for the past two days because I don't like to ask for help unless I really need it. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition, and the version that I am running is 1.1.610.0. If there is any info I left out, please let me know. Oh also I have tried uninstalling and re-installing several times, did not help. Oh I also forgot to add the patchfile log for both: --Edit-- I also came across another thread that mentioned doing this, but for some reason I have troubles understanding. Is he saying to move maxis folder into my other "C:\Program Files" ? or do I just keep it in "C:\Program Files (x86)"
  6. I have downloaded and installed the network add-on mod for my simcity 4 deluxe, but when i go onto the list of roads and trains nothing new is there?
