Electra, go at ST in the NHP Tools suits and download&install SC4Mapper. When done, you'll be able to load the SC4M with SC4Mapper and generate the region for SC4

here is the instructions taken from our NHP uploads

SC4Mapper
1. If you don't already have SC4Mapper, download it and follow the install instructions.
2. Unzip this file.
3. Run SC4Mapper, click on 'create region'
4. Choose SC4M
5. Browse to the unzipped folder and point the map file .SC4M
6. Click on 'Save Region' and name it, and Quit SC4Mapper
7. Run SC4 and load the new region. The colors of the region in SC4 will be the same colors as SC4Mapper until you enter and save each city tile. But you have the choice to do it as you go and not right away.

Seeing how i've kinda run out of ideas lately, i'd really like to give this a try.

I have one question though, are you not allowed to use any maxis content at all?

There are alot of very nice buildings that came with the game. I know my cities would be much nicer and more consistent if I was allowed to use maxis content.

You can use as much or as little Maxis content as you like. No restrictions on content, just try not to trash the environment too much and still get 1 million sims in the region ;D

Crap... I think that I'm having hardware issues, because for some strange reason, every time I try to play a region that has high-elevation terrains, my game crashes.

Of course, I am having issues with other things on my computer as well, but I haven't had the chance to get the kinks worked out...

I don't have SC4Mapper and right now my PC is almost literally begging for an upgrade...
I have a 995 MHz AMD Athlon Processor, and a NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX/MX 400. :-[

I'll join after I get the 500+ dollars I'll need to get my uncle to gut and rebuild my PC.  ()testing()

This project is now over but Ennedi has been playing the region in the MD section so if you want to start an MD using the map you will be more than welcome.

This is a beautiful map and very interesting project. There were some excellent regions built up on Shosaloza map, you can find most of them in the BSC Plays The Game board. One of the best ones (in my opinion) was Rayden's Shosaloza, currently placed in MD Archives.
I am sure that every of these regions deserves to be recounted, there are a lot of beautiful pictures and interesting building concepts in them.

Personally I still remember about the original Shosaloza Project purpose. The amount of residents is not my main goal in my Shosaloza, but I'm also curious how many citizens will live in Shosaloza when I will finish it  :)

I think comparing the same region developed by various players is fascinating by itself. If anybody will want to build something on Shosaloza map and will need any consultation/advice, I will help with pleasure.

Well, has the issue with the "No Maxis Buildings" mod preventing large cities (as mentioned in the OP) been fixed, then?
