Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi there! This is a tribute to all you Zelda fans with the ultimate addition to your SC4 terrain lists - The wonderful land of Hyrule!

MAIN DETAILS

Decorated Version of Hyrule


Bare Map Only, Version of Hyrule


This custom terrain is a representative reconstruction of Hyrule Field from "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time". Featuring all the regions of OoT, this terrain should be perfect for recreating Hyrule your own way! With enough road space to build everything from Hyrule Castle all the way to the camp at Gerudo Valley, you can design and build almost any of the locations featured in OoT.



From looking at both images, you may notice however certain differences in my map of Hyrule and the original Zelda Hyrule game such as:
- Hyrule Field has been reduced in size since the only structure there is Lon Lon Ranch
- Kokiri Forest is more south to allow enough room for Zora's Domain. As a consequence of the cramming, The Great Deku Tree's location is north of Kokiri Forest, rather than East.
-To fit in Gerudo Valley and the Desert Colossus, I've re-orientated the entire Western Desert to stretch North from it's entry from Hyrule field rather than stretching to the west as in "LoZ:OoT".

Hopefully though, these alterations won't get in the way of your game experience... I think having all the locations available is much more valuble than having a more accurate terrain.

RECOMMENDED MODS:

As you can see, some of the areas of Hyrule are on the edge of the map, so utilizing the entire map is crucial for best game play results. This can be achieved using a camera hack/mod such as this camera hack by snappledude21 which extends the limits of where you can see on your map!

Also, to get the terrain effects the way I have, I highly recommend you get this neighbourhood objects hack by Saramkirk which will allow you to place objects anywhere and not have that 'cannot place object' message appear!

EDITING MY MAP:
Anyone wanting to is more than welcome to edit the map I created to their liking! If however you want to re-submit it with your alterations, please give credit to me for the main design aspect of the terrain as around 6 hours went into making sure that every inch of the map was tweaked to be just right!

Having said that, I also want to mention that this file is version 0.9, not version 1, because I still have a few things I want to fix up on it. Being excited though, I just wanted to submit my progress so far!



For Ease, I am providing 2 versions of this download. One is the Map only, where as the other includes a region to Copy and Paste straight into your SimCity 4 directory, as well as providing you with a copy of the DEM File i made my self to use in quick terra-forming!

BUGS & ISSUES:
So far, I am aware that you should only load this as 'LUSH' or 'CONCRETE' terrain types. Using 'DIRT' or 'DESERT' terrain types may have graphical issues resulting in a patchy and poorly textured terrain.

Also, since I have all the expansion packs installed.. I do not know if there will be compatibility issues in terms of Expansion packs... however, I do not expect any since the map elements themselves are basic ie. - no bridges etc..

Overall placement of locations may also be an 'issue' for some.. but I assume most people would be thrilled with this terrain and not be to upset by the in-accuracies of the over-all layout.

*** FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, REFER TO INCLUDED README.txt FILE ***

Thanks to everyone who decides to download this!

Snappledude21's neighborhood view fix: see whole neighborhood v1.0 and Saramkirk's
Neighborhood decorations can be placed anywhere as I mentioned above are both mods that you should use with this map.

Numenor's Maxis "Lost & Found" #9: Waterfall & River (neighborhood effect) and Lethe_s's Medieval town wall work together well in terms of giving your terrain that 'Hyrule' feel to them, and its worth noting that you may also be interested in Hexameter's
Horse Drawn Neighborhood Vehicles which also gives your hood that medieval feel!

Blu, you need the neighborhood objects placeable anywhere hack by Saramkirk, also linked to in the original post.

I have that hack, however when I press the TAB button to see the whole town I can't place anything in that mode. When I press TAB again to show the menu it goes back to the default camera setting. Are there some other buttons I'm suppose to press in order to keep everything in view while placing lots and stuff? Thank you so much.
#28 Old 23rd Mar 2010 at 8:55 PM
No, not that I know of. I use a home-brew camera mod that allows me to go right to the edges of the neighborhood, so I don`t *need* to use the Tab key to place neighborhood decorations. As a result, imagine my surprise to hear that using it nullifies the camera mod. Just move the camera around until you can see where you want to place the item *with* the Neighborhood Decoration Menu visible, like I do.

Ok,thanks General, I'll just keep trying then. By the way what is your home-brew, or your not sharing? Blu

Well, the relavent parameters are the "constrain" entry. I have all four values in mine set to .10 instead of the default .35; I have also adjusted the "zoom" entry from the default (650 450 230) to (1950 450 50). I believe that these are the only changes I`ve made. This is, of course, in the neighborhood camera file.

Thanks General, I tried your configurations plus some I made up on my own and it worked out great. I can't turn using the menu arrows however the mouse works great moving maneuvering around the map. So I still have a bit of tweeking to do. Thanks again.

You, my friend, are are an absolute genius!
This is truly profound, amazingly impeccable...
absolutely, positively incredible!
I have never downloaded any other neighborhoods/maps,
but this really intrigues me!
I could have a lot of fun with this...
not to mention, get plenty of inspiration for fan-fiction!
Thank you so very, very much for creating this and sharing it with us!

We're sorta like 7-11; we're not always doing business, but we're always open.

Very well done neighborhood. Unfortunately...I DON'T FREAKIN' HAVE TS3!! ;A;

The future is bulletproof,
The aftermath is secondary,
It's time to do it now and do it loud,
Killjoys, make some noise!

I like it, its very well made and very detailed.
As some constructive criticism, though, there's not much room in general in the areas to put lots. For example, where the Hyrule Castle area is, there isn't much room to build said castle and castle town there on the map itself.

I might just tweak the terrains to suit this for my movie making needs, but thank you for a well put together terrain

Since the install instruction said paste into the downloads file I did that. I wonder because I usually paste these into the SC4 terrains instead. It is really imaginative. Did used to play this very game. Thanks!
