"SimCity 4" is a city-building simulation game released by Electronic Arts in 2003 for the PC. Unlike other games in the "SimCity" series, you can install custom maps to your installation folder and create a society on any kind of map you want. To make it even more convenient, you need no third-party software to install the custom map; all you need is the map itself.
