SIM CITY 4 CONTEST

Hi!

I was thinking that we should make a contest with sim city 4!

If someone makes a map or land if you want that everybody should use, some rules and we give eachother maybe 2 weeks or something lite that to make a city!
It would be fun to see what we'll do to the area. so same area but differnt cities...

we can maybe take the biggest area (city).

At the deadline everybody puts up their city here on skyscrapercity and vote!

So how about it?

What rules should we have? can someone make the land? it should contain water (river maybe)...

interesting proposition...
but i'd prefer that region contains only one city so only that city would be rated...
maybe some different kind of rating to be set... like: residential part, industrial, commerce, traffic, overall beautification, etc....

Installation Instructions

1- Create a new folder in your My Documents\Sim City 4\Regions and name it after the region you wish to download and install; e.g. \Seattle.

2- Download the associated .jpeg file by clicking the icon provided. Save this in the new folder.

3- If there is a .bmp configuration file for your new region, download and save it to your new folder and rename it config.bmp.

4- Start Sim City 4.

5- On the Region Screen, click the Open Region icon. Select your new region folder. The screen will change to a large flat area - this is normal.

6- Hold Shift+Alt+Ctrl+R and navigate to the jpeg file you just saved. Select this and hit okay

7- Sim City 4 now converts this .jpeg file to a new region; it takes approximately 5 to 15 minutes depending on the size of the region and the speed of your computer.

8- You're done! Don't forget to add trees and wildlife to suit your preferences.

Footnotes: Default location for all Sim City Regions is in the My Documents\Sim City 4\Regions folder (C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\Sim City 4\Regions) Sim City 4 Regions are made up from multiple city zones, each zone represented by an individual file. The size and placement of these regions is controlled through a config.bmp
Sim City 4 can create new regions from grey scale jpeg files. It does so by converting the different shades into high and low regions.

Upload Yours: You can also Submit a Region to us. It must include a preview image, the terrain file in JPEG format and, if necessary, a Config.bmp. Use the online form to uplaod directly to our server and follow our guidelines for your submissions.

To make it simple we can take a allready excisting region in the game... Take the largest city there and play!!

Some rules..
No cheating with water and power... No major changins with terrain ( i mean if there is a mountain there shoyld be on in every city! )
One should recognize the terrain...

About the monay, i have a mac and when the city gets larger the game gets veeeeeryy slow.... so if i'm to make a no cheating game it will take me mounths....


Maybe we can say that the game can start at 5 000 000 sim €.... ???

ok guys we have untill the 15 of jan. post something here so we know how many of us there are...
If somebody comes in later u play by the rules that are allready given...
The deadline can be 15 of feb. ??

You can also download terraformer or simcity mapper. I prefer terraformer though. Downloaded an awesome map of Amsterdam from hanstrapp96 or something. It took about 2 minutes to get the map in my game. Downloading terraformer takes a while though..

okay, maybe those maps from SC4 would be interesting... just pick some map and designate specific city and we'll get started

i propose that we allow NAM to be installed and some other add-ons that could ease the gameplay...
as well i'd like to have bats and lots from simtropolis.com i have downloaded before... but not too much of plopping buildings, i try to get them growable...

Ok. well, to be on topic: I actually think a simcity4 contest is a great idea! I only have to wait for the other computer to be repared, because the computer where my sc4 is on, is broken at the moment

Maybe you've been registered previously? Or someone previously owned that copy and registered at the site?

This looks good!

I vote for blue...

Some rules:

Money: 5 000 000
NO OTHER CHEATS!

the things that will be rated are:
-City planning.
-Infrastructure ( roads and stuff)
-Police, hospital and education

Let's just make this a fun thing, the most important thing is to make different cities on the same terrain.
So u can plop as many buildings as u wish, the most impotant thing is how the city look

ok ?

The suggestion board is closing tomorrow.

guys if u have any more things to add just do it!

We have until februari 15 to play

The 16 of februari everybody should put their cities on a new threed that i will open on the 15 of januari.


Until that check this threed if somebody has written anything

ps: if someone comes in late u play by the rules that are allready given.

i'd still would like to have that money lot... the one that gives 100k a month...
building an eye-candy city with constant thinking of expenses will be really hard... not to mention that wrong planning and/or low income buildings will make game less fun as we will be in red in a matter of minutes...

i think that lots of people play SC4 on this forum but there aren't many of them that visit this section regularly... so i'd suggest sticky topic on a global scale if its possible, just to notice people there is a contest going on...
