    These various gas stations come mainly from the Service Station Mega Pack from nos17; with a few other lots thrown in as well. My goal was to shrink down the footprint of the gas stations to a small footprint so they would fit more easily in cities. I did not do all of the lots found in the pack simply because some are to retro for my liking. To plop Jiffy Lube and Ceafus' Auto Center, you will need to use the lotplop cheat. Texaco Service Station No. 5775 is a 1x2 lot Chevron Fast Mart Service Station is a 2x2 lot Crown Service Station is a 2x2 lot Hess Service Station is a 2x2 lot Valvoline Instant Oil Change is a 2x2 lot Ceafus' Auto Center is a 2x2 lot Jiffy Lube is a 2x2 lot Shell Gas Station is a 2x2 lot Sunoco Gas Station is a 2x3 lot Wawa Gas Station is a 3x3 lot Mobil on the Run is a 2x4 lot You only need the following from the 'Service Station Mega Pack': Crown Service Station Hess Service Station Mobil - On the Run Texaco Service Station No. 5775 Valvoline Instant Oil Change You only need the following from the 'Forsaken Files:' Chevron Fast Mart Service Station The rest of the lots included are individual downloads: Other Dependencies: BSC MEGA Props SG Vol 1 BSC MegaProps CP Vol. 1 BSC Texture Pack Cycledogg Vol. 1 VIP Carpack vol1 SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures 1.0.1 SHK Parking Pack
  3. Love all your stuff Nofunk. Yet another great one!
  4. No night has no lighting, I'm trying to do the best I can since I'm not very expert in the editor. I will upload some more work than I have in a few days. I'm a New York lover, I hope you like it. Please vote 5 stars thanks.
  5. Is that a Sim Mars building? Oh my goodness, that's a Sim Mars building! What a great way to start your day, realizing that your favorite mod is still alive!
  6. Man! I also made growable versions for several of Diego's buildings... at least I won't have to worry about the ones I hadn't touched. Great job!
  7. Yesterday
  8. I love this, great job! But I have to ask, has anybody actually played it?
  9. If I put all 8 parts down it won't work as an airport because I assume the above which 1x1 pieces are they and where do I put them.
  10. Think you can do the Comcast Center next?
  11. Last week
  12. I understand that this mod must load after the NAM's. What about the dependencies, should they load after the NAM's also.
  13. Wow, These look amazing. Great job !!
  14. Some pack tremendous
  15. Thank you very much for this.I have just started a new region with this mod,and it looks really nice and real in game, compare to the normal "grey" industry.And not complicated at all,-to use and to install.Can´t wait till I get Hightech :))

  17. Hey guys your comments are Hilarious, XD, I'm sure not a Robot or I don't use drugs, But the truth is that I many of my models are ready since long time ago, I took a rest in 2016, but in this time I modeled many things, but they are finishing, So new models will take their time to be uploaded. Thanks for your comments, enjoy.
  18. challenge upload

    I will surely give it a try because my city has a Swedish name so I was looking for some Swedish brands. Still waiting for someone to create MAX restaurant or maybe an ICA MAXI
  19. Can you do that please? I am using NAM's sam parking texture as parking lots and I was looking for some variety. Besides, I don't like that cars can pass through other cars in sam's parking lots

  21. The old puzzle pieces are actually still there, albeit the puzzle-based height transitions have been under a separate option (unchecked by default) since NAM 33 (Additional Features and Customizations > Real Highway Options (click the "+" to expand) > Legacy Deprecated Height Transitions). There will always be some way to access them for those who absolutely have to have them, but we are focusing on draggable and FLEX items from here on out, and there are no plans to add any new features in conventional puzzle piece form. The reason we started making the old puzzle pieces harder to reach is because ready access to both the old and new systems created substantial user confusion in the NAM 31/32 era. The main reason we no longer see conventional puzzle pieces as viable for future development is because we began to get a lot of combination complaint/requests awhile back. People thought there were too many puzzle pieces to navigate, but at the same time, they had a pretty substantial wishlist of things they wanted to see added to the NAM. Unless we found an alternate solution, that meant even more puzzle pieces, which was the exact opposite of what was desired. FLEX pieces--which are plopped like puzzle pieces, but can be overridden by multiple networks (similar to the FLEXFly system, first added to NAM 28/RHW 4.0 in 2010)--ended up being the solution that allowed us to add features while reducing puzzle proliferation. Each FLEX item has a "base" configuration, but plugging another override network into one of the ends of a FLEX item can transform it to match that override network (see my early demo on the height transitions here). The result of that with the height transitions is that we've been able to use just 4 FLEX pieces to cover the same functionality that would require somewhere around 60 conventional puzzle pieces. In the near future, it's also going to allow us to finally offer full plop interchanges for the RHW. -Tarkus

    The third pack of restaurant relots come once again from various users across the STEX. Some restaurants were included in the first pack, but in the instance you would like a second variant of a model made by someone else I have created an additional relot. Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. However, if you only want one of my relots just simply delete the other attached files. If you would like to clear up space in both your landmark menu in game and in your plugin files, you can delete the original lot file. All of these restaurants will appear in the landmark menu. 2x2 lots: 2x3 lots: 3x3 lots: 3x4 lots: 3x5 lots: Other Dependencies: BSC MEGA Props SG Vol 1 BSC MegaProps CP Vol. 1 BSC MegaProps Kevdan25 Vol. 1 BSC Texture Pack Cycledogg Vol. 1 VIP Carpack vol1 SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures 1.0.1 SHK Parking Pack
  23. Mexico D.F.! Wow, you always have another surprise up your sleeve. I love how you cover so many different cities, world regions, and architectural styles. I would not have expected this brutalist piece after all the recent steel and glass skyscrapers. Once again, the building looks wonderful, and I'm sure we will soon see it pop up in CJs. Just like Edvarz, I wish you left the BATted ground out. Just the roof and the planters in this case, but not the pavement. This way we could use different lot configurations, adapt the lot flexibly with texture mods, put the building on differently sized lots... it would allow for so much more flexibility, and you'd have one less thing to worry about. Thank you for all the 3dsmax goodness you bring to the STEX!
  24. Doesn't look like a confused mess to me. It looks like a Graffiti tag, usually loosely based on cuneiform-type writing. I'll have to wait to test it, I need a gaming computer for C:S.
  25. I'm guessing if what you found was with in the Paeng folders then you still need the Tabi files
  26. Some of the Maxis buildings still have an edge on user created content, and this building would be like the crown jewel of tall buildings in SC4. I think the interpretive height of the Maxis version is more artistically interesting. I also think the term 'realism' in SC4 user created content is mostly inaccurate as this environment is a 256 color, fixed isometric projection very far from state of the art 3D, 3-point perspective photo-realism. And that's not to mention a variety of other technical graphic capabilities beyond what is possible in SC4. With all the above said, a re-work of this building, a bit of smoothing and stretching, a bit more 'artistic' feeling to the presentation, and this building could be the very symbol, the singular iconic masterpiece, of SC4 user created content achievment over the past 14 years. Its already 90% of the way there.
