Simcity 4 Region and Config Creator


Have you ever found, having to create your own regions require you to do quite a bit of thinking? Doesn't it also mean that you need a high end editor like Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, etc, but don't want to tackle the thought of using these programs to do a simple region creation? Think trying to use MS Paint is hard? What about those config files? From what i've seen, the only way to create a good region is by using a program like photoshop and then overlay a basic config file over the region, then make changes as needed. Isn't this all a pain?
Well.... NOT any more!
Introducing the Simcity 4 Region and Config creator, or SCRACC.
Basically, this program will allow you to sculpt your own regions, (the way you want to), and create a configuration file all on the fly. No more opening PAINT, photoshop, paint shop, etc.
Of course, you still have to import the region and config into simcity4 as before, but with this program, it makes it easier.
This program is being released as freeware, and is currently being beta tested at this time.


- Overview a config file over an existing bmp/jpg/png region.
- Simple click and drop for the city sizes.
- Zooming in/out to see the city for better detailing.
- Cut/Copy/Paste/Undo/Redo/Select/Fill Options.



The current developed version is at v0.98.6. In fact, this version is (to me) good enough to be released as a public beta.


Scracc v0.98.7
It is assumed that you are running the Windows OS, and that you have the latest Windows Installer installed on your computer. If you do not, here's a link to it.
Windows Installer for Windows NT and 2000
Windows Installer for Windows 95, 98 and ME
If you are running Windows XP, then you already have the Windows Installer installed.

When installing the program, you must always REMOVE the original version (if you have one) prior to installing, and not repair... Otherwise you won't get the newer version.
