In short, a lot of this stems from the way Japanese creators distributed their works. Using individual web pages, which when the creator stopped creating were left as-is. Eventually the hosting service changes something or shuts down and next that content gets lost. In many cases the creators have moved on and are unaware of things. Some efforts were made to restore the lost content though the hide-inoki site. But the content is a lot more scattered, scarce and in some cases simply missing sadly.

I have a very lots of items from Japanese sites. Many of them died. It's very sad. But SC4 die now - SC4Devotion and Simtropolis are the last port for life. Thank you to JRJ for this website. Good luck to all.
One more detail - JRJ never asked for money with His Great Site !!!  I can't transfer money to this website, you can get cash here only (Russia - Football Cup)  ...:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Looks like the amazon cloud (which runs a ton of websites) has blocked everyone in Russia.

I know why some websites was blocked in Russia is.... doesn't support HTTPS!!!

Checking by using this website!

https://www.comparitech.com/privacy-security-tools/blockedinrussia/

I also checking Simtropolis and look likes was blocked or not working in Russia because of HTTPS and SSL support....

Checking Sc4devotion (this forum) and the result is.... ACCESS GRANTED! Because no HTTPS and no SSL support!

it has come to my attention that the popular Japanese website hide-inoki is now offline (as of 29/08 11h40 UTC+2). I will attempt to contact the administrator to see if this is normal or if the site is gone for good. In the later case I will ask permission to see if we can upload most of the stuff to the LEX.

Seen this in home page, the site is still exist with the files intact, but:

I did an advanced search on Twitter for the string "drive.google.com" under satoshishi's account and I grabbed all of their files.

It's always a good idea to have an archive like that.  :thumbsup:
What do you plan to do with it? In any case if you want to share it on LEX or other place, you will need his authorization. :)

I'm going to keep the items for myself! I'm aware that a creator's rights should be respected and I had no desire to share them.

Hi there,

We already approached Satoshishi last year (a fellow player called @reg made contact with him) with the idea of bringing his creations to STEX and/or LEX, but he had some concerns, so for now they stay where they are on his google drive. Some of those uploads was shared on the Simcity 4 EDIT/Force whatever japanese site, but most of them are available only on his google drive (from his twitter account https://twitter.com/satoshishi9 they are available after a bunch of rolling). I think it's about 27 uploads, some of them contains more models. I found this comparison image about most of his collection:

For personal safekeeping, I archived the websites listed in the first post of this thread. To do that, I used an application called Cyotek WebCopy.

https://www.cyotek.com/cyotek-webcopy

I used a browser extension called Save Page WE to save individual pages as HTML when it wasn't appropriate to archive the entire website.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/save-page-we/dhhpefjklgkmgeafimnjhojgjamoafof?hl=en-US

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/save-page-we/

To perform recursive extraction, I used Multi Unpacker. Multi Unpacker requires that WinRAR be installed.

https://code.google.com/archive/p/multiunpacker/

I was unable to archive Gobanboshi's site, so I made downloading the files easy using a browser extension called Linkclump.

Edit: I used Everything to make searching for .zip files and .sc4* files within the archived websites easy.
