SC4 Autosaver

Post by Bruce on 11th March 2012, 11:34 am

Found this on the SimCity subreddit. Really useful tool.

1. Overview
------------
This past weekend I thought it would be fun to fire up Sim City 4 and do some
city building. I didn't remember about the random crashes to desktop until
too late. After two hours of painstaking traffic restructuring, BOOM! desktop!
I was so furious I swore never to play again.

Today I decided to see if there was a patch, or mod, or anything that would
kick in an auto save feature. Nuthin.

So here is the next best thing:
Tonight I wrote a program that automatically tells Sim City 4 to save for you!
You'll never lose your meticulous city planning work again!

2. Requirements
----------------
114 GB of Hard drive space
3.5 GB of Ram
Intel i7 2.67 GHz quad core processor
Windows XP/Vista
.Net Run Time 2.0 or higher (Comes with XP Service Pack 2 and all versions
of Vista)

Q: Wow! Those are higher requirements than Crysis!
A: Yes, I know, but since those are the specs of my pc right now,
it is the only system requirements I can be sure of that run my program.
It probably will work on lower specs, but whoes to say! :-)


3. How to Use
--------------

a) Run the executable SimCity4AutoSaver.exe
b) Set the saving interval from every 5 to 60 minutes (default is 10).
c) Click the Start! Button
d) Start playing Sim City 4
e) Every X minutes, a dialog will pop up saying your game has been saved!
It’s a festivus miracle!

If for any reason you want to stop the auto-saver, just jump out of Sim City
(Alt-Tab) and click the Stop! button. It will stop telling Sim City to save.
