For those who use Linux as your daily gaming driver, here is a short instruction manual how to make SC 3000 run in resolutions up to 4K. First of all, I am running a Win version of the game under Lutris. I can't recommend Lutris enough - it is the easiest way to install GOG games under Linux even if you don't know much about Linux and or Wine at all. If someone is tired of Microsoft's shenanigans and wants to try Linux but is worried about not being able to play their favourite Win GOG games under Linux, this is the way to go.

Back to SC 3000 then - The patch I am using can be downloaded from here - https://tetration.github.io/Simcity3000_Modding_Revival/scu3HD_patch.html

You may notice the site saying that Linux version is coming soon, well, do not take that too literally, it's been up there at least for a couple of years now.

So, now I assume you've installed SC 3000 Unlimited under Lutris. First what you need is install Python 2.7 in your SC3000 wine prefix - easy enough to do through Winetricks, just scroll down to Python 2.7 in the "install a DLL or Windows component" dialogue.

Once this is done, extract the python script from the archive downloaded from the patch link above and place the SC3U_HD_patch.py file into the Apps folder in your SC3000 game folder.

Next, open a windows command line shell in Lutris wine pop up menu (Open Wine console) and navigate to the Apps folder - in my case "cd drive_c\GOG Games\SimCity 3000 Unlimited\Apps"

Now type "python SCU3_HD_patch.py" and enter. If all went well it will show a success message. Close the console and run the game, you should now have all available resolutions to choose from in the in game settings menu.

Hope this may have helped somebody.

Question: Is there a python 3 version of the script for those of us running systems where Python 2 has been sunset?

Yup, there are two folders in the patch - Python 2 and Python 3, and a corresponding script under each one.
