      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

  3. McDonald's...
    Is the world's leading food service retailer with more than 30,000 restaurants in 119 countries serving 47 million customers each day.
    Is one of the world's most well-known and valuable brands and holds a leading share in the globally branded quick service restaurant segment of the informal eating-out market in virtually every country in which we do business. Serves the world some of its favorite foods - World Famous French Fries, Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Chicken McNuggets and Egg McMuffin. Our rich history began with our founder, Ray Kroc. The strong foundation that he built continues today with McDonald's vision and the commitment of our talented executives to keep the shine on McDonald's arches for years to come.
    www.mcdonalds.com   **UPDATED** 4/18/05   After learning new techniques I decided that this lot needed to be updated.  McDonalds has had a new facelift from the ground up including new textures, lighting and details. I have also made 3 different style street signs that will randomly change on the lots.   I am still awaiting the Custom UI's to be made but I felt that you should have the lot in the meantime.  This lot will go thru another update when those have been completed.  Also note that this is an exe file.   You will eventually be able to download the MAC version  from kbooms1w's website at: http://homepage.mac.com/kbooms1w/FileSharing7.html   McDonalds comes ploppable with 50 jobs and is a 4x4 LM lot also included is a CS$ 3x4 Growable. I also remade the 1x1 McDonald's Highway Sign lot. It will install into the parks menu. Plop one close to the highway for added realism . Hope you and your sims enjoy!   Special thanks to the BSC Team.

    No dependency ;)
    6 vehicles, more effecient (center strenght=40, dispatch radius=250)
    station radius = 1000
    station center strenght=255
    plop and bulldoze cost = 150
    budget cost=230

  5. The Hong Kong / Asia BAT Team
    HK Garden Estate Towers
    BATs created by bixel
    Modding, lot design & readme by T Wrecks
    Check out the Hong Kong /Asia BAT Team thread at Simtropolis
    Introduction / Overview
    Finally it is out - probably one of the most radical lot sets ever to appear on the STEX in one download. This file contains no less than 15 low-wealth and 17 medium-wealth lots, based on a slew of different combinations of 5 residential towers, ranging from compact single-tower lots to large complexes with 5 or 6 towers.
    The objective of this set was to enable SimMayors to recreate those huge, multi-tower residential complexes that can be found in Hong Kong. This time, however, the approach was different in two respects: Firstly, instead of combining all buildings on a massive mega lot, this set is fully modular (see included example screenshots) and can be used to compose a tower complex of virtually any size and shape by means of smaller individual lots with lot sizes ranging from 2x3 to 6x6. Secondly, this time no particular real-life complex was recreated accurately. Instead, these towers look rather generic and are only based on floor plans of actual HK residential buildings and inspired by existing estates, but otherwise ficticious.
    Another interesting aspect is that one of the tower models features custom LODs which allowed the roof of the base section to be filled with props.
    Since the towers look so generic, they can also serve as both R$ and R$$ buildings - the choice is up to you!
    Included Lots / Dependencies
    First of all, everything you need is included in this download, i.e. there are no dependencies!
    The following tables list all included lots together with their name, their tower configuration, lot size, growth stage, and occupant number. This time there are no exact stats listings, as this would result in a table that would be several screens in width and height. However, you can rest assured that the stats and values have been chosen carefully and will not stray too far from in-game buildings.
    You will also see that all lots are depicted on separate screenshots (yes, for both wealth levels!) so that you can browse through the screenshots comfortably and decide which lots you are going to use and which ones you don't like. Any combination is possible; you can choose only one single lot, some of one wealth level, some of both wealth levels, or simply all the 32 of them.
    Note: Numbers 2a and 2b are only available as R$$, hence they are not listed in the first table, which only contains the R$ lots.

  6. The Wilkshire Tower is a slightly oblong building that was designed to serve as the headquarters for a telecommunications company that has long since gone bankrupt.  After this company moved out, many smaller, independent, medium-wealth corporations moved in, of all types.  There is even a gaming company HQ'ed in this tower.

  12. The SeaView Tower is a luxury residential tower, with a nice view of the sea, a swimming pool, and a large underground parking complex.  It houses 2,800 high-wealth occupants and has no monthly cost.  Some Sims like it so much, they buy permanent residences here!
    Two versions are included - a ploppable landmark (the Modd Squad has not yet discovered how to make truly functional residential plops) and a growable R

  13. This is an extra-large hospital that can accept ten times as many patients as the default hospital.  It has all the latest top-of-the-line medical equipment and the most qualified elite medical staff of the entire region.  Its coverage radius is about 2 to 3 times that of the large hospital, but you'll need to manipulate the ambulance funding some to prevent overcrowding in your large skyscrapervilles.

  14. DUSKTROOPER'S WILLTRANS CORP V1.01 THIS IS THE FIRST VERSION! This is Dusktrooper's Willtrans Corp Tower, a CO$$$ RCI plopable. Use it to replace existing skyscrapers,fill demand, or consult the online tutorials to create a growable version. Warning: The plop cost is rather high, so, be careful. THIS IS THE FIRST VERSION OF THE TOWER! LATER VERSIONS WILL HAVE MORE DETAILS! PEOPLE BEGGED ME TO LOAD IT. The architectural style is Postmodern. It is lightly based off of the Williams Tower in Houston, Texas. LIKE I SAID, IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A GROWABLE OR LANDMARK, DO IT YOURSELF. IT IS EASY, AND IT WILL SAVE SIMTROPOLIS's PRECIOUS SPACE, and MY TIME.

  15. The Cobb Oceanic: A high-wealth residential building housing 2256 sims. If your sims are frustrated because hi-rise buildings only contain small apartments, then they will enjoy moving into the Cobb Oceanic. Each unit is a spacious and luxurious two-story townhouse, with private balconies and spectacular views. The Cobb Oceanic also allows sims to relax in the rooftop pool area, or stroll through the tropical foliage at ground level. Many people assisted me in this building's creation: The rooftrop trees were modeled by KD5rax. The tables, umbrellas, diving board, and small potted plants on many of the balconies were modeled by fosterk12345678910. The textures are by n74704. The night-lighting texture was created by GOLDIVA. Technical and structural advice were given by CERULEAN and SimGoober. Many others made helpful suggestions in the BAT open discussion forum. Thanks everyone for all your help! Instructions: Unzip all the included files into your plugin folder (in the "my documents" path) In order to grow the Cobb Oceanic, simply zone 4x4 and play! You must have the BAT update from simcity.ea.com installed for the night lights to display, and you must have sufficent demand for 2256 wealthy sims to move in. The building is a growable, but a landmark is also included in the pack (but it will not contain residents). I hope you enjoy the Cobb Oceanic! -COBB

  16. Pathed by Redlotus; modelled by Fosterk, Decius, DuskTrooper, and N74704.
    A fully-functioning network-enabled plop allows the connection of railroad tracks at the top of the ramp descending down to a connection to the subway network at the bottom is now a possibility! Trains visually descend into the 'pit' thanks to Redlotus' pathing for the lot. (thanks!) I happened to have stumbled upon the fact that referencing non-existant base textures in the game results in a 'see-through' effect, just what was needed for this lot and its LODs to work 100% correctly.
    Note: Like the Maxis network transition (el-train-to-subway), this lot has a minor 'bug' that is visual only. When plopping items around the lot, sometimes the ground texture of SC4 will 'cut through' the lot. The easiest way to fix it is to go into sub-terranean view then quickly return to surface view. It should look normal now.

  18. The long awaited Petronas Project has finally come to a city near you. The picture above is both day and night, night on the left, and day on the right. Unfortunately, I will be unable to frequent Simtropolis this summer, so consider this my "temporary going-away" present to Simtropolis (Dont worry, equinox plans to update the file if he can successfully make changes to the project). This building has 28,500 commercial office workers and features a true-to-life mall model found at the base of the towers, a skybridge, night lights, and a custom ui. A very special thanks goes out to Grover_G for the mall textures, equinox for the final rendering and packaging, and DarkMatter for his help at various points in the project. I also thank Bigmac and LiquidWave for hundreds of pictures to model the towers after, and the entire community of Simtropolis for their support. Lot Specs. Ploppable landmark with 28500 co$$ jobs. Lot size: 13x13 Residential and Comercial desirability radius: 180 (it is a very tall building) Residential and Comercial desirability amount: 100 (it is a very beautiful building) Plop Cost: 400000 Maintanence Cost: 12000 Power Cost: 150 Water Cost: 100 Simply extract the contents of the zipped file into the sc4 plugins directory. Start the game and look for the Petronas towers in the landmark menu. Place in your city and enjoy.

  20. Sunken Higway Walls
    This little set is designed to enhance the look of sunken higways.
    It provides straight walls that fit on the slopes surrounding sunken ground
    higways. And it also contains special pieces to nicely integrate overpasses
    into your sunken higway network. You can find them in the parks menu.
    I recommend using the hole digging lot for ground higway to get the right
    slopes beside your higway, especially to get the terrain needed for the
    onramp pieces. To get them right you should dig a hole with the diggin
    lot then level the terrain by placing single street tiles. When done lay the
    highway and plop the overpass, hopefully you should get the right terrain.
    If not try playin arround a bit with the terrain tools somtimes its just tricky
    to get it right but in most cases it works fine.

  22. My very first BAT dream was a yacht club. This creative baby was the 4th BAT project - after I learnt that amphibious buildings with custom foundations are among the hardest BATs to create. After two months of tears and joy, here it is. Costs quite a bit to plop. However, Roscoe's generous yacht club management pays you back $180 every month in coastal land lease! Ain't that cool.

  23. UPDATED!!!!
    Everything is fixed now. Enjoy!!!!
    The Bank One Tower is the tallest landmark in my home state of Indiana at 247 meters. The building was completed in 1990. I started this one a long time ago and recently resurrected it because of a few requests to finish it up. I had a lot of help from Equinox on this project. I built the model and EQ basically did everything else. Here are the stats:

    Lot Size: 4x4
    Plop Cost: $75,000
    Jobs: 6600 CO$$$ (9700 when dilapidated)
    Dependencies: Cerulean's Texture pack 1 V101
    Just Unzip and install all files in your My Documents/SC4 folder and enjoy!!!! Big thanks to Equinox for all his talent and help with this (and future) projects.

  25. The Cobb Grand Plaza: A high-wealth residential growable building housing 1151 sims. This luxury apartment building is designed in a style similar to the Cobb Park Plaza, elevated in order to provide a large open garden space at ground level, where sims may stroll through the tropical foliage. Also, like the Park Plaza, sims may take a dizzying elevator ride to the observation and restaurant decks, or ride all the way to the top in elevator 3 and relax in the rooftop pool and hottub. The rooftrop trees of the Grand Plaza were modeled by KD5rax. The tables, umbrellas, and small potted plants on the rooftop were modeled by fosterk12345678910. The textures were shared by n74704. Thanks everyone for all your contributions! Instructions: Unzip all the included files into your plugin folder (in the "my documents" path) In order to grow the Cobb Grand Plaza, simply zone 4x3 and play! You must have the BAT update from simcity.ea.com installed for the night lights to display, and you must have sufficent demand for 1151 wealthy sims to move in. I hope you enjoy the Cobb Grand Plaza! -COBB
