Save images of SimCity (SNES) cities (SimCityMapper)
« on: May 01, 2022, 09:25:24 am »
I always wanted a way to save images of your cities so I made a tool here:
https://github.com/mechaskrom/SimCityMapper

Maybe it can be useful to other SimCity players.

Does anyone know if something similar already exist? I couldn't find anything at least.

Very cool idea. I've wanted a tool like this for some of my Civ empires in the past, like let me see a big poster. Makes me wonder what other games could have a pattern of generating a large map based on a save file. Animal Crossing comes to mind...

It should be possible to create something like this for similar building games. It requires some reverse-engineering though which I'm sadly not very good at.

In this case I was lucky because most of what I needed to create the SimCity tool had already been figured out here:

So I'm very thankful to the persons behind that work.
