What is your internet speed?
I just went on it & it took only around 2 sec to load everything.

(Update: Slower now 6 sec)

I got my FPS Problem fixed.

Checkout that thread on the Steam forums.

edit: haha i've been googling around for more info on this theres ancient posts like "SimCity 4 requires an epic 256MB OF VRAM TO MAX OUT" "jesus christ what is this world coming to"


Note to everyone: If you edit the file by following the instructions on steam on how to add your Graphics Card to the list & move the files to somewhere easy to access: (Copy "Graphics Rules.sgr" and "Video Cards.sgr" to your desktop)
If you clicked & dragged from the file to the desktop/Other location remember to move it back to the file or you'll have even less performance (Max of 5FPS for me ) than before.

I think my CPU is limiting the settings because I'm running it with everything at high but have to keep shadows at low & Sims/Cars at Medium.

So my fps is relatively good on medium resolution, software render and low shadows, however, the "Graphics rules.cgr" fix didn't work for me at all.

And simtropolis does have a slow server, they're having funding issues. My internet for the whole household is 100mbps, my computer runs at about 50 so my internet is not to blame

attached.. extract into simcity4/plugins folder

I take no credit for creating those, I got all of them from simtropolis.com, each mod is owned by whoever created it and put it on simtropolis, blah blah blah... to find info about the mods, search the name on simtropolis..

includes a cool mod - an air cleaning tower! Now you can actually control air pollution in industrial areas!

edit: it didnt show up, wait a sec..

edit 2: http://www.mediafire.com/file/x8xpvs...ac/Plugins.rar
