      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts! Hardware Upgrades 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.

PEG Utopian Series

PLEX Utopian content items for SimCity 4.

32 Files

  1. As mankind continues his quest for the ultimate Utopian society, one of the first steps will be to master the environment and to rebuild urban centers to include more efficient and environmentally friendly structures. SkyFarms are a step in the right direction. Being almost fully self-sufficient while producing the very sustenance that urban occupants require, they give far more back to the local community than they take.
    SkyFarms require very little external power or water. As a result, as they replace other structures in your cities, the demand for power and water will be reduced significantly. This can reduce the number of power plants and water pumps a city requires... and their associated costs. SkyFarms also recycle and filter local sewage for irrigation, so their presence in industrial areas can reduce local water pollution and the need for dedicated & expensive water treatment facilities.
    The Utopian SkyFarm series continues with the Type 4 SkyFarms.. which contains 6 growable RCI lots plus one ploppable landmark lot with IHT jobs. Of the seven growables, there are 3 IR lots including the MegaFarm... plus 1 IHT lot and 2 IM lots. The lots vary in size from 3x3 to 6x5.
     
    All SkyFarm lots decrease local water pollution as part of their filtering process that treats local black water into gray water for irrigation. Accordingly, the SkyFarms use very little city water. All SkyFarms are almost fully self-powered from use of solar collectors and/or wind turbines, and an internal fuel-pellet processor fueled by recycled plant & vegetable matter. * All lots are included as separate files so you can easily remove any that you do not wish to use.
     
    ** This lot requires the PEG-SF Sky Farm Resource file
    There are no other dependencies.

  2. As the population grows and urban centers expand to use more and more power and water resources, the need for more efficient "green" buildings becomes more than evident. Large & conjested cities can no longer afford to build structures that focus only on useable space and esthetics. Modern buildings need to be efficient & intelligently designed to preserve the ever dwindling local resources.
    All external glass surfaces of the SkyFarms are coated with titanium oxide which collects pollutants and prevents rain from beading. The rain slides down the glass, maximizing light and cleaning the pollutants. Troughs collect runoff for filtration and use in irrigation. This is but one of several processes incorporated into the SkyFarms that all but eliminate their dependence on the cities resources.
    In addition to collecting and recycling its own water, the SkyFarms also produce pure drinking water from various evaporative processes that it can bottle and sell for profit. Up to 60 million gallons of pure drinking water can be produced by a single Sky Farm per year. 
     
    The Utopian SkyFarm series continues with the Type 3 SkyFarms.. which contains 7 growable RCI lots plus one ploppable landmark lot with C$$ jobs. Of the seven growables, there is 1 CS$$$, 1 CS$$, 3 IHT lots, 2 IR lots and 1 IM lot.. The lots vary in size from 3x3 to 5x4.

  3. As mankind continues to deplete the planet's resources in an effort to provide for an ever-expanding population, better and more efficient means of agriculture are needed to keep pace. These Vertical Farms (Sky Farms) are the most recent concept in development and will soon be part of the sky line in many of the world's major cities.
    Highly efficient and self sustaining, a single SkyFarm can out produce up to 50 acres of traditional farmland. In the form of high-tech industrial and manufacturing facilities, SkyFarms can be placed nearer to consumer markets which will reduce the price of the product as well as providing local jobs and higher tax revenues for the city. As Commercial Service facilities, they can be located directly in urban commercial centers and eliminate transportation costs and related pollution altogether. And, of course, in traditional farming roles, 30-50 times more produce can be grown in the same amount of space. Year-round production eliminates limited growing seasons and more IR jobs are available to local residents.
     This second offering contains 4 growable RCI lots plus one ploppable landmark lot with IR jobs. Of the four growables, there is 1 CS$$$, 1 CS$$, 1 IHT, and 1 IR lot. The lots vary in size from 4x4 to 4x6.
    All SkyFarm lots decrease local water pollution as part of their filtering process that treats local black water into gray water for irrigation. All SkyFarms are almost fully self-powered from use of solar collectors and/or wind turbines, and an internal fuel-pellet processor fueled by recycled plant & vegetable matter.

  4. In 50 years, the human population will increase to 8.3 billion, of which almost two-thirds will be living in cities. There is not enough farmland to feed all these people. In addition, the current agricultural system has led to a significant loss of biodiversity and disruption of ecosystems. Millions of hectares of forests, grasslands and wetlands have been sacrificed to be converted into farmland and the chemical deterrents used by farmers have contaminated the surrounding nature. New approaches to growing food must therefore be employed.
    The future of agriculture is now!!
    The "Vertical Farm", also known as sky farming or Sky Farms, is but one of many exciting new concepts being developed to help  mankind meet our future needs while preserving the environment. Why build out... when you can build up?
    Using available cutting-edge technologies, Sky Farms are the model of efficiency and self-sustainability. Depending on the type of crop, one acre within a Sky Farm can produce the same amount of product that was produced on 30-50 acres of traditional farmland. By locating Sky Farms directly within the urban environment (ie... where the consumers live), additional product transportation costs & related pollution are eliminated.
    This initial release contains 4 growable RCI lots plus one ploppable landmark lot with IR jobs. Of the four growables, there is 1 CS$$$, 1 IHT, 1 IM and 1 IR lot. All four of the lots are 4x4 in size.

  5. The Solar Collector 3 combines 10 solar collectors into a single facility producing 5,000 MWh/month of clean and efficient power for your cities. Unlike the game's default solar plant, which employs the Concentrated Solar Power principle of using mirrors to focus heat that is converted to electricity, these true solar collectors use  Photo-voltaic cells, which convert sunlight directly into electricity.
    The plop cost, power produced, and maintenance costs for this facility are the same as building 10, single solar collector plants. This combined facility merely saves a little space with the added convenience of a single plop and budget item.
    This is a conditional reward power plant. It will become available in the game after you have met the same conditions required to make the game's default solar plant available. (High Wealth Residential Population - 3000 Mayor Rating - 55)
    The office/warehouse is part of a 2 structure building prop family to add a little variety. When plopped, one of the two structures will be randomly selected for the lot. The lot is transit enabled and should be connected by street to your traffic network.
    * Special thanks to Pegadyne Industries for their development of the new photo-electric collectors used in these plants that produce a viable amount of power from a relatively small collection surface.

    ** This lot requires the installation of the PEG Solar Collector 2 power plant.
    ** This lot requires PEG Lakeside Resort (PEG_Resort-Pack_205.dat)
    **This file currently contains an .exe installer suitable for windows users.  These files are in the process of being updated with zip files and this message will be removed once the update is complete.

  6. The Solar Collector 2 is a modified version of the original Solar Collector. It is virtually identical to the updated original in all regards except appearance. For reality buffs, the comical AA batteries have been replaced with a more real-world look.
    This lot does not replace either the original or the updated original version. Both lots can be used at the same time with separate icons appearing for both in the Utilities Power menu. Both versions have identical properties but will be listed in your budget window as separate power plant types.
    The parking lot on the lot is transit enabled. You may have to manually connect it. However, like the windmills, the lot does not have to have road access.

  7. Finally... solar power comes of age with this innovative solution for providing power at night time as well. While traditional solar power stations stop giving up the juice after sunset, this baby is (BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!) Still Going!!

    Okay, Okay... I don't take this seriously either. But it was fun to make and actually rather fun to use. It has all the properties of a solar power plant in a small 1x2 tile lot that will fit almost anywhere. The power output is reduced correspondingly to 500MWh per month. It produces 250% more power than a windmill at double the cost... making it a realistic addition to your cities power & cost-wise.  Like an ideal girlfriend, it costs a bit less and puts out a bit more.
