Since 2008, the various game utilities provided by SC4 Tools have been downloaded more than 50,000 times by SimCity 4 fans from around the globe. As of April 2012, these helpful applications are also available at the WMP Exchange.
The SC4 Tools were developed originally to create at least a semblance of organization when it came to the various necessities of playing the game and keeping track of the ever growing number of "must-have" downloads, ultimately too numerous to remember which was installed where, and what was needed to keep it all working together. Files, lots, and downloads went missing; then there was the ever annoying issue of dependencies; finally, last and certainly not least were several crashes due to an errant piece of custom content.
Most of our utilities come with either a handbook, or at least a read-me file covering the salient points of the application. Support is provided via the SC4 Tools Forum at Simtropolis, and the Support Forum at SimPeg.
For full details, revision logs, and downloads of read-me files and handbooks, visit the SC4 Tools site.
Currently under development is a small WMP Exchange Download Utility to help everyone stay up-yo-date with plugins available or updated at the exchange.
