Collection of Mods and tricks for Simcity 3000 Unlimited and Simcity 3000

Guys I made a small website with scripts and mods I made it to make it easier to mod and run Simcity 3000 in Modern Computers and even make the old linux version work in modern Linux distributions.

All the mods and tricks in the website works with both the Linux and Windows Edition of the game

If anyone wanna take a look at it: Link here

Thanks Its still in its early stages. I do plan to add more stuff and content to it about Simcity 3000 Whenever I get a break from College and my job.
It would be incredible to have mods that go deep into the game engine. I would really pay hard for getting two things:

- more buildings (more realistic and more varietey, for example european, american and asian buildings in one map)
- bigger maps - that would be incredible! Especially because now computers are much faster than 15 years ago :)

I think this is all possible. However I will probably need more time to dig deep into the game files and hexadecimal values. My college break is in about 2 months. Whenever I´m free from my college commitments I will have full time to dedicate into modding Simcity 3000 more. I will see What I can do about bringing your requests and many more stuff I have been working in the last months for Simcity 3000. Keep checking this post.
I´m still working on mods that allow major overhauls of the game´s engine. For now the only news I have for your guys is that I recently made a python patch that allows your guys to run the game in HD resolutions.

By using this python script to patch your exe file you will be able to run the game up to 4k resolutions. However some resolutions are highly unstable and might crash your game. For example any resolution that is not divisible by 8, such as 1600x900 will crash your game.
Thanks for your work!

Looking forward to new developments.

I've played SC4 a lot more, but I keep coming back to Simcity 3000. :)

Thanks for the encouragement levictus! I like simcity 4 as well. However I dont know why but Simcity 3000 holds a special place in my heart I´ve been playing it almost everyday for the last 10 years. Maybe it is its simplicity or maybe it is simcity 3000´s graphics that has a 90s vibes which gives me some nostalgia from my childhood. Even if Simcity 4 is superior in several terms Simcity 3000 is more stable and I just love its simplicty and style. SCU3 will always be my favorite!
Hi guys I´ve more news!

I´ve just made a python scirpt that makes it easier to switch between languages after you´ve already installed your Simcity 3000/Simcity 3000 Unlimited. It works on both Windows and Linux version of this game. In order to use it all you have to do is install Simcity 3000 with English as the default language and then have python 2.7 installed on your computer and download my python script and then place it in your Simcity 3000 Res folder.

Now Windows users might be wondering why would they use my script instead of using the one provided by GOG to change the language? Well for the simple fact that it provides some additional language translations that the one provided by GOG wont provide such as:

-Portuguese Brazilian
-Polish
-Russian
-Spanish
Download it here

Edit: Instructions on how to install and use it can be found inside the readme file or the project´s page
