Using Cleanitol

Using Cleanitol is absolutely the easiest way to make sure that your Plugins folder is in it's best shape possible.

Installation is quite easy, just be sure to read the installer as you go.

 "$Deal"$ Dependencies:
Make sure you download & install the MSVCP71.DLL and gdiplus.dll into your c:\windows\system32 ( or whatever your windows folder is )
If Cleanitol crash at startup and you have the following log, it means you have not one or both of those dlls or they are not on your windows path
Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "BSC Cleanitol TM.py", line 2, in ?
  File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 82, in load_module
  File "wx\__init__.pyo", line 45, in ?
  File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 82, in load_module
  File "wx\_core.pyo", line 4, in ?
  File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 98, in load_module
ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading wx\_core_.pyd

This should be updated to inform everyone where in Vista or Windows 7 those libraries should be copied to. Nowadays many people are using multiple core processors and 64 bit OS and those dll should be installed or on the program's folder or on the \Windows\SysWOW64 folder, being this last one the best choice as other programs like DatPacker and PimX need those libraries as well.

Hi, I was able to follow this guide for the first few lines and I'm having a few problems;

a) I already happen to use(and have done for some time) registry booster as part of uniblue's powersuite package, so I do not need to download it twice!
b) I was able to do the first part of the instruction and got this result.

*.exe (ColossusAddonMod_Setup.exe)  found in \SimCity 4\Plugins
58 files have been moved to C:\Users\Bunny\Documents\SimCity 4\BSC_Cleanitol\20100302_01

An undo.bat file as been created at C:\Users\Bunny\Documents\SimCity 4\BSC_Cleanitol\20100302_01\undo.bat


I have clicked on the two links but I am unable to download due to the messages;

C:\Users\Bunny\AppData\Local\Temp\3ix627vd.tmp\bldgprop_vol1.dat
C:\Users\Bunny\AppData\Local\Temp\3ix627vd.tmp\bldgprop_vol2.dat

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.  Create an association in the Set Associations Control Panel.

Why am I getting this message and what am I supposed to associate with??????  There is no .dat file in Set Associations.

c)After that I am unable to follow the guide due to not having any of the other files that you mention.

What the hell is going on and where is it going wrong.

An additional note(not ur fault) but all of this, inc the CAM thingy, seems like a lot of work for something that seems to do very little from what I've read.  I know this game and guide are several years old but I have only just discovered Simcity 4.

Btw, I am running Vista.

Don't try to open those file, just save them on your hard disk,
in the folder SimCity 4\Plugins (under "My Documents", or whatever they are called in Vista).

....I nowhere see the download button here? ...

Usually means that you are not logged in ...

I see that you have a LEX account and that you have many downloads. So I haven't a clue if it is not a log in issue.

Hey there,

I followed the tutorial, yet I still can't seem get it working properly. I extract the files into my plugins folder then click the cleanuplist: I then click the back up button and it moves all the files to folder including the install programs. I use the undo.bat to restore it all, but with no more idea on how to solve the problem.

I only recently started to play simcity 4 again and was downloading some mods before I started. Surely this mod is simple and no doubt I'm missing something small, I am just at a loss as to what I am NOT doing right. I have tried to do this process with the extracted files and the same thing happens, it removes the files from the plugin folder: I am suppose to do this before installing the mods, but it wipes them. Please help

Lets see if I understand the question.

I extract the files into my plugins folder then click the cleanuplist: I then click the back up button and it moves all the files to folder including the install programs.

Including the install programs? Did you place the install programs in your MyDocs\SimCity4\Plugins\ ?

Clean it all has several uses. The first is to remove files that the game does not use and move them out of your plugin folder. Files sometimes sneak their way into the plugins if the gamer is not paying attention. Such as, Jpg images, PNG images, read me HTML, text files, installers, etc. . . They are no use to the game and can be safely removed manually or automatically using clean it all.

The second use is to help locate and remove files that need to be replaced with new improved versions. This may be the case if I have made a lot of props over time and if these props are located in different folders. It is advantageous to create a Mega Props file because that will speed up game loading time. So the process is to run a clean it all session that removes all the individual props first. Then install the Mega Props afterwards. In this case, it is a quick way to locate and remove specific multiple small files prior to replacement.

After a while, it was discovered that Clean it all was a good search tool. Hence, its third use. A list was created that had all the CAM dependencies. Running clean it all would tell the gamer what he had and by deduction what is needed.

I don't know if this helps. - Jim

Thank you yes I did place the installs in the plugins too, guess that might be where I am going wrong. Where should the installs be put, I just thought the whole mod file had to go into the plugins. Or is it just the remove file that goes into the plugin. Ugh confused..  :-[

Sorry if I seem to be clueless running on not much sleep also. Was so busy trying to figure this out last night the next minute it's like 4:30am.

The installer is used widely by BSC members. This has been a positive and a negative experience. Positive because this insures that the files are placed where needed. But it has also been often a point of contention by those who have existing file structures they like to maintain. 

I download files from the STEX and put them in a folder called STEX\name of creator.  I download files from the LEX and put them in a folder called LEX\name of creator. From there I unzip the files. A click of the mouse means the and the files you need, and only the files you need, will automatically deploy to a known working location in your plugins. Example: My recent houses will deploy to MyDocs\SimCity4\Plugins\BSC\JMyers\name of house.

Files from the STEX usually do not have installers. It is left for you to decide what files to move manually into your plugins. What file is the read me. What files are the pictures. What file is the model, descriptor, and lot. You will move them to a folder of your choice manually. Such as, MYDocs\SimCity4\Plugins\R$\Name of creator\name of building.

Hope this helps.

- Jim

Cleanitol is great and this tutorial is as well!

Just curious as to whether you can  change the folder that is being searched? I have a laptop that has multiple users on it and most of my plugin information is stored in the program file folder and not the my docs folder. That way each user can get at and use the plugins folder that is located in the program files folder.

Ideas?

As far as I remember, the maxis folder is searched as well as the 'MyDoc' folder, so even if you have every plugins installed/unzipped under 'c:\program files(x86)\Maxis\Plugins', it should find and remove the files
However the backup folder will be saved under 'MyDoc\Simcity 4\BSC Cleanitol\DateOfTheDay'

Hi SC4Devotion, my first post here.

I ran into some trouble when trying to use Cleanito. The thing is that I have my plugins folder located in my D:\ drive instead of the common spot, C:\Documents and Settings\User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins.
I have been unsuccessfull when trying to find a way to change the folder in which Cleanitol cleans, so my question to you is if this is possible or not.
Thanks in advance  :)
