  1. Hi there, I'm having a problem getting hotels to spawn; I'm building a gambling/culture city that is going pretty well, at the moment the city have 5 casinos (1 luxury hotel full with $$$ gambling addons, 2 sleek and 2 cheap with full $ and $$ gambling addons), all the 3 possible landmarks (Edificio Copan, Empire State Building and Sydney Opera House) and the Pro Stadium; the city have all forms of public transportation except streetcars (3 ferry and boat terminal, one train station and 1 municipal airport with 4 passengers addons and 4 runways); the city have a draw of 65k/85k with more then 1k tourist/h and it's going decently (1kk$/day profit) but I'd like to get some hotels. The problem is that no matter what I do they somehow refuse to spawn; I tried running the Sydney and Pro Stadium events everyday for quite some time, bulldozing some medium density commercial from all wealth class every day and the city is not at the beginning of year 6 but not a single hotel spawned; I could plop them with the plop mod but before doing that I'd like to get some hotels to spawn naturally. Is there anything that prevent hotels from spawning while playing offline? Am I doing something wrong or am I being just incredibly unlucky? Thanks in advance for helping, Paraffine
  2. Beachside Getaway

    From the album Hall of Fame

    1st Place entry from Tourist Attractions (S3-04-W) Weekly 72 Rep 27 Bonus Points 56 TOTAL Points Challenge Results Data | Leaderboard Rankings [Larger Resolution] 4.2 MB Far from any major cities and only connected by an average-speed country road are several old-style villages tucked between the mountains with stunning views of the ocean. Many of these towns changed over time as tourism grew, which led to the construction of hi-rise resort hotels and a subsequent influx of beach-goers and yachtsmen. This particular town is one of the smaller ones and lacks any marine facilities, but many people will sail over here due to be able to take in the grandeur of the towering rock face that surrounds the town on three sides. This causes the town to have longer than average "nights." Today we are catching the town in the later part of the morning, and the pitch-black shadow caused by the eastern rock face has almost receded. The two resort hotels in this town are seasonal, and tourist season has just begun. The beach is not particularly full and the hotels are just getting started up for this year's tourists, which explains their empty parking lots. The fancier hotel to the east has already sent the first two of its white and yellow shuttle buses to the city to pick up customers from the airport - a 40 mile drive. One of them can be seen heading west on the country road. The larger hotel on the west end of town already has its first group of patrons - a large group of foreign tourists filling two chartered buses. The crowd currently gathered on the beach is watching a mid-sized cruise liner slowly make its way through the water. The ship is based in the city 40 miles away and so it's a frequent sight in many of the coastal towns in the area. Another sight to behold is the multi-million dollar yacht that has also entered the scene from the west. It would also appear that there are some people on jet skis racing each other. The beach generally gets 3-4 times as full when tourist season is in full-swing. Lastly, the bleak building at the base of the mountains is a corporate office where bigwigs meet to discuss future plans for the city's dominant oil company. A small group of black cars can be seen making their way up the hill to the site. All cars and other vehicles are static models Photoshopped in. Photoshop was used extensively for this image.

  3. Myrtos Beach, Greece

    From the album Hall of Fame

    2nd Place entry from Tourist Attractions (S3-04-W) Weekly 43 Rep 16 Bonus Points 42 TOTAL Points Challenge Results Data | Leaderboard Rankings [Larger Resolution] 1.2 MB Located on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, few beaches across the globe can compare to Greece's breathtaking Myrtos Beach. Due to it's remote and rugged location, the beach is completely inaccessible by foot - the only way to reach it is to traverse your way down a series of steep hairpin curves. Once you make it there however, you'll be rewarded greatly with pristine, warm Mediterranean waters, perfectly soft white sand, and of course, incredible views. There's plenty to do as well - surfboarding, windsailing, boating, or you can just soak up the sun if you wish - why don't you come visit today?

  5. The Alcázar

    From the album Tourist Attractions (S3-04-W)

    "El heróico e impoluto alcázar de la muy noble ciudad de Aurora" (Or "The Aurora Alcázar" for short) is a former fortress/palace built in the sixteenth century by Simspanish conquerors on the city of Aurora, it's located at the top of a gentle hill on a site once occupied by a Simztec shrine. Today the building functions as the Regional History Museum, indeed the three surrounding gardens lay bare a testimony of the passage of time. The east garden shows what's left of the Simztec shrine, it's remains unearthed in 1925; the north garden, unchanged since 1867 was designed following Simeuropean (?) style, popular on the simmerican (this is getting a bit silly ) continent at the time; lastly, the west garden features a meteorological observatory built in 1906. The Alcázar is part of a major urban park and it's one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city of Aurora. Phew! built it from scratch, took me over a week to make it look decent and there's still room for improvement, but anyway, I hope you enjoy this image and it's brief history!.

    Introduction: Tourist in Jakarta uses this bus for city sightseeing Double Decker Bus as Tourist Bus: This mod replaces Tourist Bus in the game. Copy the package file to your SimCityData folder, remove your old Tourist Bus Package (if installed), and enjoy seeing this bus rides in your city. It's only texturing for the time being. because I'm frustrated with 3D modeling actually (especially the UV mapping thing). Perhaps, Oppie, Takuoma, Tobse, etc could give some tutorial. LOL Should you find any bugs, please feel free to inform me by posting a comment.

  18. Is it possible to create a culture specialization city with strictly only residential and commercial zones, and only basic services such as fire, police, health and mass transit (power, water, sewerage, garbage and education all provided from the region)? I'm working on one right now, but people are protesting about having no schools. Should I just ignore them? Is it just a reminder of the happiness I could be gaining, or do they slowly lose happiness without it? I don't actually have much education in the region yet, both my first two cities were heavily industrial (coal and oil respectively) to provide the basic necessities for the region, but both have grade schools. I'm planning to set up an education hub next with at least two universities (just for shits and giggles). EDIT: They are actually protesting that "there was no education". They are now leaving their wealthy modern city to attend crummy grade schools in polluted industrial towns. EDIT 2: Now there are some people threatening to leave if they don't get education. I guess it can't hurt to put down one school. However, if I only had to choose one, which would I go for? A university is just far too large for this city, but are there any factors that differ between the other three besides their capacities? I don't suppose a few libraries would suffice as a substitute for schools? EDIT 3: It obviously makes sense to have a high school as the gymnasium boosts tourism. I don't suppose it matters if I have two high schools and no grade school.
