Colossus Addon Mod.

It breaths unbelievably new life into SC4. Literally dozens, if not hundreds, of replayability hours added.

EDIT: Holy Cr@p!!! So many dependencies AND SO MANY READMES!!!! Hmm..I may get tired of this part quick.

EDIT2: I've done with COM and IND. I'm taking a break and doing RES after taking an hour off. This is a lot of stuff to have to download and then make sure you have dependencies. I hope its all worth it. Will let you know.

I did it using the DIC and it made it easier. I definitely would have not done it without it. You have more patience than me.

I also have to read the README for the CAM so it may be a few days before I can finally get building on a tile.
Heh, I was wrong to not correctly warn you before hand.

Is it a great mod that I do not know of?
It extends the growth capacity of SC4 allowing you to create huge cities.

@rdrdrdrd - Show us your pics when you get a chance.

@srsdude - Don't worry SC4 will be waiting for you when you're done. Study well and score high on your exams.

@legoman786 - Just finished installing the starter set and downloading 116 dependency lots from the readmes. This is going to take a little time but I'm sure it will be worth it. It looks like some of the lots used for RES are actually COMs that have been reconfigured.

Yes, how many times I have regretted not putting my best in my learnings when I was in college. With a wife and a daughter on the way, it's only gonna get harder.

Haha, yeah. I'm actually working on more realistic region. Complete with aggy, suburban sprawl, high density skylines, all while completing my CAM collection.

I've only got one city up so far on the Lake Vistonis map, found on the LEX I believe, and it's all aggy.

EDIT: Can somebody help me find this file? NameBrand-TrainProps-V3.dat It's supposed to be on Gizmo's site, however, it appears to be down at this time.

I've been playing it on and off for the past few months. Love it to bits and I can build a successful city without cheating, although its not always the nicest looking place

One tip for getting extra game stability is to run it in Software Mode instead of Hardware. I was having horrible graphical glitches all over the place. Software mode does chug a bit slower than hardware, but I prefer having the game run properly.

I'm really hating Firefox right now. I had about 15-20 pages open of the STEX ready for downlad... Wife uses the computer while I'm brushing my teeth, she's like something happened and it said we're sorry about the crash. I'm like steaming out of my ears, 'cause I know that she had already used Firefox to check on something, and all those were lost for the 'Restore Previous Session' function.
