  2. Chicago

    Today, we're traveling to Chicago - the Windy City - to take a look at a number of this city's most iconic landmarks, from the past to the present. We'll start off with a look at one of the city's great railroad terminals - Grand Central Station. Built in 1890, stations like these helped to transform the city into one of the most important railroad centers in all of North America. Here we see a scene from its heyday in the early 1930s - unfortunately due to dwindling passenger numbers, the entire station was razed in 1971. Completed in 1925, the 462 foot tall neo-Gothic Tribune Tower quickly became one of the city's most famous skyscrapers. When it opened in 1930, the massive 4,000,000 square foot Merchandise Mart was the world's largest building and became an important retail destination. We move forward to present day to visit the home of the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs - historic Wrigley Field. Nicknamed "The Friendly Confines", this legendary ballpark has been home to the Cubs since 1914 and is well known for its ivy covered outfield walls, hand operated scoreboard, and rooftop bleachers across the street. Located in Grant Park, Adler Planetarium can be found overlooking the city's beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. Since opening in May 1930, its been one of the city's most popular tourist attractions ever since. In the suburb of Plano is where you'll find the famed Farnsworth House, located on the banks of the Fox River. Designed and constructed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1945 and 1951, it's one of the area's most unique sights. Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago's 3,300 foot long Navy Pier has been one of the city's most popular attractions for nearly a century. Centennial Wheel stands nearly 200 feet tall and is an iconic part of the city's skyline. A view of the Chicago Loop and River North districts. Trump International Hotel and Tower can be seen soaring above the skyline in the lower half of the picture - built in 2009, it's the city's 2nd tallest building and reaches heights of nearly 1,400 feet. Towards the top is a view of Millennium Park, which features a number of landmarks such as Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Wrigley Square, and the highly reflective Cloud Gate. A look over over Chicago's Magnificent Mile district, which features a number of the city's tallest buildings - such as the John Hancock Center, 900 North Michigan, Water Tower Place, and Park Tower. The Chicago Water Tower can be seen as well - built in 1869, it's the United States' second oldest water tower and is well known for surviving the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. One last view of downtown Chicago, featuring the city's tallest and 3rd tallest buildings - the iconic Willis (Sears) Tower and Aon Center.

  8. Hello, The SimCity 4 and 3000 community isn't decentralized anymore. I mean, there are just SC4Devotion and Simtropolis. SimCityPolska is dead. SFBT, well I don't know. City Builders will be ceased to exist in November. SC4ever and SC3000.com isn't active anymore (but still exists). Yes, I don't hate either sites but I'm worrying about unhealthy competition, something common in mono/duopoly. There was a case in 2009, a person called Constantina make trolls the SC4D's wiki.1 The user is banned from SC4D Wiki and Simtropolis. 1, 2 Dirk (I'm not sure the user is really @Dirktator or not) later edited pages about Simtropolis and he's banned from the Wiki.1 I don't know why he is banned and I don't know what happened when he's banned. But, maybe the relation between ST and SC4D in that year isn't quite well. If the community runs into problem, we risk into not exist. So, I came up with community decentralization, meaning we must build other sites to keeping our community exists. The sites should be active, otherwise it's just a formality and zero result given. If you have suggestions, critics or comments, feel free to give them below. 1 http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Special:IPBlockList 2 http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=People_talk:Constantina Thanks.
  9. Santa Catarina District

    Hello Everyone! Welcome to Bellingham! Today we'll go to a consolidated neighborhood of the city, The Santa Catarina District. It was named after the Santa Catarina plaza, one of the most famous and used plazas by day: And by night: It has some features of a downtown, but with lots of residential buildings, In fact, we have 1mi sims living in that district: In this photo, Avenida Manchester stands out: The East-West (Avenida dos Campeões) and North-South (Avenida Metropolitana) Greatest avenues of the city meets here. Trains and Subway are great forms of transportation here too This is a part of Vila Inglesa, a former British neighborhood , now a big residential neighborhood Since we're talking about trains, this is Ipiranga Station, one of the most used Train Stations in this city. 100.000 sims use them per day! A Huge number. In this Image, you can see Avenida 8 de Março too. Cloverstack, the end of Avenida 8 de Março For the Last Part, I'll introduce you to a part of Avenida Metropolitana. This is the Interchange that ends the express part of it Expressway of the Avenida Metropolitana: Two Viaducts with two lanes leading to the South Zone.
  10. Australia

    Today, we're taking a trip down under to experience some of Australia's most iconic natural wonders - and we'll also be visiting a number of sights across the country's vast Outback. We'll begin with a visit to the legendary Great Barrier Reef, located on the country's northeastern shoreline. Stretching over 1,600 miles long, it's not just the world's largest coral reef but also the worlds largest living organism. The reef's rich biodiversity is unparalleled with nearly 10,000 marine species calling it home - and has become well known for its vibrant display of colors. In recent years however, the reef has taken a massive hit from rising temperatures and coral bleaching. Many of the reef's most famous species like the giant clam are dying out and other parts of the reef have become unrecoverable. Byron Bay has some of the country's premier beaches - located in northern New South Wales, it's known the world over for its excellent surfing and near-perfect weather. Australia is a country known for its wildlife - and the iconic Kangaroo is one of the country's most famous mammals. With over 50 different native species, they can be seen in grasslands, forests, and even in parts of the Outback. While much of the Outback is barren and empty - you can still find the occasional farm among the rural dirt roads that cross the landscape. Windmills are vital here to power many of the Outback's cattle stations. After traveling across the vast southern Outback - we finally reach the The Pinnacles, located in Nambung National Park in Western Australia. These weathered limestone formations make for an other-worldly landscape and have become one of Australia's most well-known tourist attractions. In addition to its beauty, the Outback is also known for its natural resources. Gold and other valuable resources are mined in massive open pit strip mines like Kalgoorlie's Super Pit. We venture even deeper into the Outback to visit a few more of Australia's most iconic rock formations. Karlu Karlu (Devil's Marbles) are located in Northern Territory's Red Centre - these giant rounded boulders are one of the country's most unique sights. Kata Tjuta - or the Olgas - can be found in the southern part of the Northern Territory and are another one of the Outback's signature sights. Meaning "many heads" to the Australian Aborigines, these rounded domes are both imposing and mysterious. Our last stop today is one of the country's most iconic natural wonders - the stunning Uluru (Ayers Rock), which dramatically rises 1,142 feet out of the Outback. Uluru is the original aboriginal name for the area - and it has no specific meaning behind it. They believed that the rock has a great spiritual meaning - and was created at the dawn of time. To this day, those visiting it are urged not to climb the rock out of respect to these beliefs - and taking photographs of certain areas is also strongly urged against.

  11. NAM Traffic Simulator

    When I first started playing SC4 again (after many years) I installed NAM36 and was immediately overwhelmed by all the choices. So I uninstalled NAM (I kept it on my HD). I'd like to use just the traffic simulator from NAM36 but I don't know what I need to add to my plug-ins folder to do that. I have searched here and throughout the internet but I haven't located the info I need. I know it's probably out there somewhere. Thanks in advance, Brad
  12. My dad bought me a new computer. A HP Slimline Desktop PC 260-a109nv, with fully updated Windows 10 Home, 64 bit, 4 GB RAM and AMD processor A6-7310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics. I already have my physical copy of Simcity 4 Deluxe (yes, I still have it) but I'm going to download a digital one from GOG, just to make sure that it will be playing on my new PC. So, I want to ask just a few questions. Based on the info provided, do you think my PC is good enough to play Simcity 4? When it's the best time to buy the game? Right now it's 17 euros, which is a good price but I'd rather buy it on an even lower one. Is there any trick I have to know to ensure a smooth playing experience on Windows 10? What would you suggest me? How about the Lot Editor? Will it be playing on my new PC? If no, is there any alternative to make my lots? And finally... did you miss me? Cross your fingers, my friends. It's been 4 years, but finally...
  13. So I've been putting some thought into this, and thought it might be worth sharing. How should I organize my region so it (sort of) resembles reality? I grew up near Washington, DC, which happens to be a square (with a bite taken out) almost exactly ten miles on a side. A standard SimCity region - the ones that auto-generate - are 15-16 km on a side, or ten miles. Perfect match. But as I started nooding around, I discovered the entire city is served by one power plant, and one sewage treatment plant. There is no way at all to model that in SimCity 4, so yeah, it's a game. No need to get hung up on precision. I recently started working on modeling a rural county, and ran into an obstacle there, too. The average US county is about 1000 km2, or almost 200 large tiles, and almost all of that land is either rural or completely empty. Did I really want to build tile after tile of forest, with the occasional highway? The population density of the entire US is 86 per km2, which means it's almost all empty. I experimented with scaling the area 10:1, because a county of 100 km2 seems like a nice building project; but then the population density gets multiplied x10, and the simulation ends up far from reality. So I've decided even the county is the wrong unit of measure. A standard region would represent a small city, like DC or smaller. New York City covers 784 km2 - who wants to build seven hundred small tiles? Does anybody here also have a job? The small city I live in today covers about 200 km2 and fills about 1/5 of the county. That seems like a big project, but feasible. It's not all skyscrapers - mostly suburban, with a nice busy downtown and some rural bits in the corners. It seems to me this is the kind of city SimCity 4 is designed to model, with a mix of small urban tiles and big rural outskirts. The most fun part of this project has been choosing different towns and looking them up on Google Maps. You can switch to satellite view and go flying over the landscape, learning all sorts of interesting things!
  14. Rio de Janeiro

    Located on Brazil's Atlantic shoreline, Rio de Janeiro is widely recognized as one of the world's most beautiful cities. Between the perfect beaches, iconic landmarks, tropical weather, and friendly residents - there's plenty of reasons to visit and enjoy this one of a kind destination. The city was founded back in 1565 by the Portuguese - and its strategic location on Guanabara Bay allowed it to become an important port city throughout the years. Since then, the city has expanded greatly and nearly 14 million people now live in its metropolitan area. Rio is a city known for its income inequality - while luxurious apartments dot the shoreline, favelas can be found hugging the steep mountainsides. Rio's Jardim Botânico (Botanical Gardens) are a popular attraction in the city and are known for showcasing a wide variety of trees and plants - including over 900 different varieties of palm trees. The Christ the Redeemer statue at the top of Corcovado Mountain is the city's most iconic landmark - it's become a cultural icon over the years as well and is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The iconic Maracanã Stadium comes to life at nighttime - the home of Brazil's national football team since 1950, it's one of the world's most famous stadiums. Famed Sugarloaf Mountain is located at the mouth of Guanabara Bay and is known for its resemblance to a loaf of concentrated cane sugar. Cable cars take tourists and locals right up to the top and offer incredible panoramas of the city. Rio is known for its beautiful beaches and Copacabana Beach is one of the city's best. From New Year's Eve celebrations, FIFA Beach Soccer World Cups, concerts, and more - it's become a destination that's known the world over. One last look at Copacabana Beach and busy Atlantic Avenue during one of Rio's beautiful sunsets.

  15. I recently demolished the cemetery and houses of worship in my city so I could build them elsewhere, but it's been years since then and those buildings are not available in my Rewards & Business deals menu nor have I been prompted to build them again. Is demolishing rewards in SimCity 4 just permanent or something? Is there was known way to re-trigger the prompt to build them?
  16. Chapter 12: A Summer to Remember

    Welcome back! School's out and summer has begun! It's time to make great use of the water park that was built a while back! Woodland Town, along with most towns in the region have stagnated a bit, with population hanging at 30,000 people. Plans to connect the towns and region by interstate and rail by the end of the year are in progress and will encourage major growth in all areas once completed. The Mayor and his wife have two kids, their son Jeremy who is 10 (going into 5th grade) and daughter Christina who is 8 (going into 3rd grade). A Summer to Remember I: A Trip to the Water Park It's another hot summer day This particular Saturday, however, it was very hot! Weather Report: July 8 Saturday Temperature: 96 Degrees Dew Point: 72 Degrees Feels Like: 107 degrees Rain: 80% Highs 98, Lows 73. Scattered showers throughout the day, isolated showers in the afternoon. I took the opportunity today to take the kids out to the new water park. They've been begging me to go the last couple weeks! Jeremy and Christina: Daddy let's go! Me: Christina put on your seat belts! Wife: It's really hot out today. The lines are going to be really long today! Me: I imagine. We get in the car and drive out: 1:24 PM We arrive at the water park and as you see, it's quite crowded: Unfortunately, the trip was cut short and just as they were about to go back upstairs to go on the slide, the lightning alarm goes off. The wind started picking up and drizzles of rain began to come down. Me: "Alright, let's pack it up!" People start exiting in droves as the storm nears. Typical summer storm, we've been getting a lot of these lately but they're normal. I feel the temperature drop. 4:15 PM Just as we're leaving the parking lot, it begins to downpour: It rained for a good portion of the afternoon... The sun peaks through the clouds as the rain continues: 7:35 PM The rain finally let's up: Christina and Jeremy playing in the puddles in my front yard: Here's the current weather now after the storm: Weather Report: July 8 Saturday night Temperature: 76 Degrees Dew Point: 71 Degrees Feels Like: 81 degrees Temperatures have dropped by 20 degrees! Later That Night... The night is peaceful, with the occasional sound of a car streaking through the wet streets splashing up water and distant thunder. Kids from the local neighborhood join in for a pickup game: 10:12 PM Regional Night View: Woodland Town on the right, Woodland River City on the Left, District one above and Pleasant view below it, and Coibridge on the upper left. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2:57 AM I just got awakened by what sounds like a loud rumble. It definitely isn't thunder. Wife: "What's going on?" She says as she rubs her sleepy eyes Just then an even louder rumble booms in the distance, waking up the kids. Jeremy: "Daddy what's that? Another storm?" Me: "I'm going to find out." We all go outside and notice just about the entire neighborhood's been woken as well, as families head outside out trying to make out what's going on. I look at the skies for a sign of a thunderstorm but the skies are clear... Neighbor: "Mayor! Do you have any idea what's the heck is going on?" Me: "No idea, maybe an earthquake?" Neighbor: "Whatever it is it's woken up- *Boom* An even louder thunderous rumbling noise so loud that it rattles windows... I can sense people starting to panic. Christina hugs my leg and starts crying. Just then, the power goes out... To Be Continued... Thank you for reading! Don't forget to leave a comment if you haven't already!

  17. Hello, I'm on Manjaro 17.1.10 Xfce with Wine 3.7. I have installed the driver for my HD Graphics 3000. The game runs sluggish, even after I put d3dim700.dll to my Wine system32. I suspected this related to CPU and RAM but after closing Firefox (yes, I run the game with Firefox open), the game again runs sluggish. After I replaced the ordinary Wine 3.7 to Wine 3.7 with Gallium Nine patch, the game runs smooth. Why this could happen? As I know, the ordinary Wine translates DX calls into OpenGL, while the patched one runs DirectX calls directly. Thanks. @rsc204, @Cyclone Boom, @Handyman
