Was I dreaming????
Hi, Just found your tutorial on making custom neighborhoods.

I SWEAR I had on my little pc, a program that must have come with the sims2, that let me make neighborhoods! It was a small window with 2 boxed sections below. I could make mountains and valleys. It looked like a 3D molding thingee all in black and white.

When I got the Sims2 there was a long lag to actually play the game because I needed a new Video Card to do anything! So I put it aside and maybe even reinstalled it. Can't remember. So where is this thingee? I can't find it in any of the sims folders and you are talking about something else. I am 99.99% sure I have never had SC4. Was I dreaming???? :confused: http://www.modthesims2.com/misc.php...=0&forumid=126#

I have a little problem, though. I've created, edited, added roads, etc to my city, copied it and pasted it into the SC4Terrains Folder, but in TS2, the roads don't show up. Am I doing something wrong? How do I fix this?

Here are some words of wisdom...

Yes, this costs money, but you've got so much that it doesn't matter. Whenever you have an intersection of roads - T-junction or crossroads, you get some ugly traffic lights. Don't worry, they don't carry over into S2.

Thanks so much for this tutorial. I just got my copy of Sim City 4 from ebay and am making neighborhoods.

One thing that really helped me was to take neighborhoods from Sims 2 and put them in Sim City 4. That helped me get an idea of the scale.

ThanX for tute.
Very adequate.
"Tuts" on Maxis' TS2 site were absolutely unhelpful.
Your's is fully helpful for my needs.

I have 2 questions:

1. Is there any reason why the roads have to be connected? I'm trying to do some LOTR type hoods and would like to have isolated areas, rather than stretches of road. Am I right in assuming that the roads only matter as places to put lots?

2. Is there an ideal number of houses for a neighborhood? I thought I hadn't given enough room, but turns out there was room for about 100. Is that too many?

1. It shouldn't matter.
2. Good question. Base it on performance.

2 jmtmom:
1)Never met with game rejection of unconnected roads.I have two hoods with isolated areas and nothing seems to crash.
2)Ideal number should base on your purposes,what do you exactly wanna build - Rivendell,Minas Tirith or maybe Moria.Different houses ammount and scattering,different styles of building,etc.

Default small steel arch bridges are transfered & other tips
Small steel arch bridges (sc4 rush hour) are transfered but only ONE type of bridge is alowed.

To draw from an image or a plan, edit it then rotate image horizontaly (the good old paintbrush can do it)... the Sims transfer will return it into original !

Be carefull with terraforming in Mayor mode... it costs ! There is nothing worse than be out of §§§ after hours of labor ! I dont know if is it possible to "motherload" SimCity ! Prefer "Ctrl-Alt-Shift click God mode", its free, "shift-1" pencil is smaller thant the mayor one, there is much more tolls!

You know a site allowing re-upload of free build/buy stuff in lots ? Help us to update the list !

The SC4 money cheat is "weaknesspays". It add 1000 to the treasury.

Default flat bridges - all smal towns in SC4 region
Itis a mod to have flat bridges YOU CAN IMPORT THEM !!!
[IMG]e:\flatbridge.jpg[/IMG]
its the Bridge Height Mode by joerg (thanks to him) in simtropolis.com site
Link to simtropolis.com

Its easy to have a complete SC4 region : with the good old paintbrush edit the config.bmp file, zoom 800%, copy a red pic and full the image in this red (its not the default one), save and exit. That's all.

Have fun

I dont think so Wil, you can use SimCity 4 (or SC4 rushhours). SC3000 maps dont fit with TS2 requirement as i know.

This is very useful information to know! - I've just started to really take an interest in creating my own custom neighbourhoods etc from the terrain up and had some minor problems, with judging lot sizes mainly. Thanks for taking the time to create & upload this! - fantastic work!...

To all, of the very talented MTS-2 creative types - my sincere thanks for taking the time to create/upload/share...
