  8. Make Your Own Welcome Sign!

    Back when I uploaded my Las Vegas welcome sign  http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/details.cfm?id=13664 many people requested their own version with the name of their city.

    Instead of flooding the STEX i'm uploading the GMAX scene of the model along with it's textures.  All you have to do is edit the place name, which is modifiable text in GMAX, render, lot and... Voila! your own Vegas styled welcome sign!

    If you intend to use the model I've provided, please acknowledge me where possible.

    Enjoy!

  10. These warehouses, was batted by me, but i'm a bad batter, so this isn't much to go after. The ZIP folder contains 2 files, with 2 warehouses, with same size. The files can be used in Gmax, and textured. If anybody wishes to texture it and release it, pm me and get your permission. Have fun! When XXDA got time, he can probaly learn me how to texture :-)

  12. Improvements to BAT4Max have made this tutorial obsolete. Visit the BAT4Max thread in the BAT - Open Discussion forum to get the latest version of BAT4Max.

    This tutorial shows how to replace the rendered images with other images, before they are converted into .FSH files. Since this tutorial might still be useful for that, I'll keep it up, but for the original purposes this [color="#FF0000"][b]tutorial is obsolete[/b][/color].

    [right]-Jasoncw
    July 2011
    [/right]



    This tutorial explains how to create a .SC4Model file using different scenes for night and day.

    In real life, "night" is when we are on the shadow side of the planet. There are sun rays, but they are being blocked, so we are literally in the shadow of the planet. This means that there are no sun rays casting shadows on the dark side of the planet, so there are no strong shadows, just ambient moon light. However, in the game, night is made by taking the day render, and adding a blue tint to it. The TruNite rig in this package was made by deleting the light that represents the sun, and then adjusting the light that represents ambient lighting (like the sky or moon) so that these renders are visually compatible with standard day renders.

    While I made the TruNite rig included here and this tutorial, the concept of TruNite itself is SimFox's creation.

    For this tutorial you'll need to have 3ds Max 8 (other versions may or may not work) and BAT4Max installed, and a basic proficiency in each.

    This will not work with Gmax or the standard BAT.

    Please do not post troubleshooting questions in the comments section of this upload. Instead, post your troubleshooting questions in the [url="http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=37&threadid=87426&enterthread=y"]3ds Max - Troubleshooting[/url] thread, and note that you're following this tutorial.

    To get a better idea of how TruNite looks, download any of my BATs from December 2007 or newer and look at them at night in the game.

  13. This download contains the CamLight rig I've used to render all of my BATs since the beginning of 2007. The render to the left was made following the instructions in the included tutorial, while the render on the right was made using the default rig and render settings.

    For this tutorial you'll need 3ds Max 8 (other versions may or may not work) and BAT4Max installed, and a basic proficiency in each, though setting it up is very straightforward.

    This does not work with Gmax or the standard BAT.

    Please do not post troubleshooting questions in the comments section of this upload. Instead, post your troubleshooting in the 3ds Max - Troubleshooting thread, and note that you're following this tutorial.

  20. Please vote if you like these. Anouther production from MP industries, a set of 11 police helos to augment your units on the ground. These birds are from such areas as California, Louisiana, Maryland and Mass. There is also a generic  SWAT helo and a few others I found through Google. I put the pics for each helo in their respective file so you can see where I was attempting to go to. Enjoy, ja/att

  21. Our Mass Pak industry president was busted for a DUI recently and was hauled off in one of the Simcity's finest police vans, or so it was thought. After making bail the president immediately commenced his civic division to design more pleasing vans. These are the first 5 to roll off the assembly line for the military and special weapons units. Rioters will think twice when they see SWAT bearing down on them. HA HA!  ja/att

  22. Mass Pak Industries
    After exhausting production with their line of street signs,
    the MP industry is branching out with their first release of civic vehicles. Not satisfied with the current models of medical helicopters here is a pack of 5 actual skins (3 civilian, 2 military) I found on line to bring in some variety. Installation is simple, place "1" file into your plugins folder and proceed to the game.
    There are no conflicts to date but if you have any issues please contact me.  Expect additional releases of police cruisers, police helicopters and fire trucks in the near future.

  23. BLaM nerdly_projects Cop Cars Mega-Pack 3
    by nerdly_dood

    This is a mega-pack containing several new police car mod packs, in addition to one pack that has already been available (Yellow Fire Trucks). In all, it contains a pack of Austrian police cars with the new EU-regulated paint job, a pack of police and sheriff cars based on the Broward County, FL sheriff's office, a really big pack of black and white police and sheriff cars, one Bloomingdale, CA police car mod, one smallish pack of police cars with a dark blue stripe, a small pack of military police cars, a smallish (smaller than I had hoped) pack of "Cop Cars Through the Ages", a pack of orange American fire trucks, one Allen, TX police car mod, one Italian State Police (Polizia di Stato) police car mod, and a pack of yellow fire trucks.

    All police cars change your police car props to a model that's more detailed than most props and identical to the cars driving on your streets.

    Each one has its own readme file.

    I had planned to include an updated, more detailed version of Swamper77's Euro emergency vehicles (available on the SC4Devotion LEX) with this upload, but I decided not to include it with this pack.  When I release it (as a separate upload) it will include versions with text in different languages as well as some with no text at all.  If you really want the current version, PM me or post in one of my development threads and I'll send it to you or attach it to a post on one of the threads.
    Installation:  Pick A SINGLE dat file, put it in your SimCity plugins folder and play the game!

Which, by the way, is a quick description of the California Highway Patrol cruisers.

  24. These are models in which you can use to put your signboards on. 

    They do light up (although it's up to you to get them to light up in-game)

    They've already been moved from the 0,0 point to represent placement for both the RHW4 and RHW6

    RHW4 is versatile and can be used on Avenues and Ground Highways aswell.

    RHW6 is independant and can only be used on RHW6 as it's slightly wider and takes more space.
    They'll be premiered on the Blue Hope City Journal in requests of Freeway Signs
