Props to create custom SimCity 4 lots

1,130 Files

  1. The Norfolk and Western Railway (NW) used the HL Class 40 ft, 2 bay "fishbelly" hopper cars to transport coal during the early to mid 20th century. These Late Steam/Transition era cars have the "sloped side sheets" with original road numbers 22000-25999, 38000-39999, and 68500-69499. [1]
    Some HL class were rebuilt into H9 class around 1949, this marked the beginning of the phasing out of the design. By 1960 they were using different cars and different paint schemes, and the Norfolk and Western was running diesel on its mainlines starting in 1959. [2]
    Installation:
    Simply unzip the "CT14 - Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars.zip" file into your plugins folder.
    Removal:
    Remove the "Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars" folder from your plugins folder (normally in Plugins/CT14/Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars". Lots which use these props will be a little bit emptier.
    Prop catalog:
    For SimCity, these cars have been rendered as HD props in a variety of angles and filled with coal in three variations, along with empty car versions.
    Orthogonal (3 load variations plus empty):
    - 90 deg
    Diagonal (3 load variations plus empty):
    - 45 deg
    Curve Fitting Angles (consecutive angles' loads will generally vary, plus empty versions of all):
    Left and Right versions of:
    - 5.625 deg
    - 11.25 deg
    - 16.875 deg
    - 22.5 deg
    - 28.125 deg
    - 33.75 deg
    - 39.375 deg
    Fractional Angles (3 load variations plus empty for each pair of angles):
    FA2 26.6/63.4
    FA3 18.4/71.6
    Release history:
    v1.0 - 20170225 - Initial release

  3. I couldn't find any Lebanon Cedar or similar type tree in mods so I made my own. It replicates a common true old world cedar tree found in cities all over the world especially in Mediterranean and semi arid regions worldwide. I attached a few photos of the tree found in the real world to give you an idea what they look like and where they belong. I have commonly seen them here in Arizona in middle elevations in places like Prescott, Bisbee and Sierra Vista. Some are even found in higher colder mountain elevations like Flagstaff where I live. This tree is typically suited for a drier type climate and usually isn't found in humid places or wet places. The tree files are resourced from BSC Mega Props Vol02.  Simply drag to your plugins folder in your sim city folder contained in your PC's documents folder. Credit goes to BSC for yet another great model set.

  7. English
    This is a dependency pack currently containing some prop families, it groups several props found in the LBT Mega Prop Pack. I will be using this upload as a dependency for my next releases. I will also be adding some prop fixes, more families and maybe textures in the future, so be sure to check for updated versions!
    Included in this download is a "Dev Files" folder for those who want to use this pack for their lots: This folder contains Prop Family names for easily identifying the families in the Lot Editor and PIM-X. There's also a couple of test lots showcasing all the props i grouped in this pack.
    This pack does not contain any new props, only new instances of already existing props, it also doesn't contain any overrides of already existing files, so you don't have to worry about bulldozing anything in-game. For further clarification you can refer to the "Technicalities" section below.
    Dependencies
    Make sure you download and install these files to your Plugins folder. If you don't, you'll get brown boxes instead of props.
    LBT Mega Prop Pack vol. 01
    Yes, this dependency needs a dependency; the files contained in this download are not redundant, however. To understand why you can refer to the "Technicalities" section below.
    Technicalities
    This pack contains new prop exemplars made out of existing prop models. For any model made for SC4 (be it vanilla or custom made) there can be multiple different instances (called exemplars), these exemplars can all have different properties but they all refer to the same model; this is why you can have a building model serve as both Commercial offices and as a static Landmark.
    The props included here have properties different from the original ones but link to the same models, one of such properties is, for example, belonging to a prop family. Thus, the original packs linked as dependencies do not include my prop families, or any of my modifications or fixes; conversely, my pack does not include any different prop models, only different prop instances.
    Notes
    You can use this pack for your own lots if you wish, just make sure link to this pack as a dependency, along with any of the cascading dependencies. I did not make any of the models, and do not claim any credit for them, all credit goes to the authors of the original packs. If you run into any issues , want to see upcoming updates, or other things I'm working on, pay a visit to my lot thread in Simtropolis, you can also PM me here @Edvarz. Thanks for your download and enjoy!

  9. If speed is your calling, you'll need to choose your car wisely. Can you dig it? While most of your gearhead friends have cheap imports they modified on their own or brought their old man's Chevy to the track, you went for far-out aerodynamics. Don't get tripped up on the funky wing or pointed nose, Daddy-o! This masterpiece by Plymouth rocked the circuit to the max, back in the day with the likes of Richard Petty! And now it can be yours to show up everyone at the local car meet, too!
    About the Upload-
    There are eight vehicles contained in this zip folder. Each one is a 1970 Plymouth Superbird. They are High Wealth vehicles, given their status as collector's cars. These vehicles will appear on your road networks.

  11. In the largely low density population centers of the United States, how does one get their children to school if they can't drive them? Schools are often too far (or the cities are too unsafe) for the children to walk there, and public transit is hard to come by. The answer?
    The yellow limousine.

    Whoops, I meant the school bus.
    How do you know that you're on a school bus? You might see dirty windows that are impossibly difficult to slide open, and the floor might be strewn with lost homework. Used gum will likely cover the bottom of every seat. You might feel very hot during the summertime because there's no air conditioning... or if there is, the unit will leak on people who sit under it. You may also notice that every other vehicle on the road is passing you, including city buses and garbage trucks... but you'll only notice this if you can keep your thoughts straight while your brain is rattled by every bump in the road. Yes, school buses really are the dream. They're something you dread getting on in the morning, but once you're on you wish that the bus will never stop... because once it does, you know you're at school.
    ---
    OK, all comedy aside, this a simple prop pack that includes 20 HD models. It has 5 different bus designs rendered in 90 degree (ortho), 45 degree (diagonal), and both 22.5 degree (FA2) angles. Four of the buses are built off of a Navistar International truck chassis and the other one is a Ford E-Series bus with a handicap door.
    These are not automata. I do not know how to make automata, and these models have far, far too many tris to be directly converted into automata. In other words, please don't ask me if these are automata and please don't ask me to make them into automata. Thanks.
    I have already tested the models and did not encounter any problems, but if you find a bug or issue, please post it here or on my BAT thread.
    ---
    Please be advised: currently these props may not appear 100% right next to other car props made by other users. People who have made cars for SC4 over the years have adopted wildly different scales. Since my end-goal is to redefine the world of vehicle props for the game, I decided to use a near-realistic scale for my cars and trucks (probably somewhere between 100-110% scale). Because of this, they will appear small next to the shk cars and very small next to the VIP cars. The same problem plagues truck props made by different creators (or sometimes even the same creators... some people aren't consistent with their own scale!). They will look about right next to the Jim car props, but that set is rather limited (no angles). Eventually I'll release other sets of cars, trucks, and buses (and textures) so eventually there will be a unified scale that can be enjoyed using my props.

  13. Regardless of what type of economy a city runs, there will always be a need for logistics. It can involve any type of trade that means moving goods or equipment or anything else that needs to follow through from Point "A" to point "B". And to make it happen, you'll need a reliable vehicle with ample space that will take the abuse of moving from one place to another. That is what the Mercedes Sprinter is built for!
    About the Upload-
    There are three vehicles contained in this zip folder. Each one is a 2013 Mercedes Sprinter 2500. The Sprinters come in three basic colors so that they would blend into almost any setting. These vehicles will appear on your road networks.
    Dependencies?
    None required.
    A special Thank You goes to MushyMushy, whom had kindly supplied the textures needed to help make this upload possible.

  20. Here's a question for you- How do you combine performance, looks, practicality, and a reasonable size into a single car? Many vehicles on the market at best meet two of these requirements, three if they're lucky. Then you should take a look at the Volvo V90! A sleek design with room for a whole entourage and then some is all you need. Whether you call it a wagon, or an estate, this car has it all!
    About the Upload-
    There are eight vehicles contained in this zip folder. Each one is a 2017 Volvo V90. These are Mid-Wealth vehicles, given their average selling price. These vehicles will appear on your road networks.
    Dependencies?
    None required.

    Textures were sourced from photos by MotorAuthority.

  21. Your city has been filling out from border to border and it has done so quite nicely! Since there is only so much room to keep spreading out, there's really nowhere else to go but up. Now wait a minute! With all these sims and their cars clogging up your already-narrow streets, how is anyone supposed to make it to work on time? The best solution- build a bus network. And now here's a real concept- make the buses.. Double Decker! More people sharing a ride, with decent views to boot! Now, if only we can take care of those cyclists.. 
    About the Upload-
    This file is a replacement of the Maxis City Bus. It will appear on your road networks whenever a bus station has been placed. For aesthetics sake, this file would best be implemented in a London, UK themed city or otherwise utilizing traffic driving on the left.

  22. Let's face it, with any car you own there is often a reputation that comes with it. It could be the luxury sedan that cuts off everyone on the freeway. Or it could be the SUV that blows its transmission on a 3% incline. Now if you throw in "Skyline GT-R", you become royalty. Just having one will make you the star of every car show. Every bet placed at the track will be in your favor. And as for wiping the floor with every opponent, lets just say the Skyline GT-R will have no problem living up to it's reputation!
    About the Upload-
    There are ten vehicles contained in this zip folder. Each one is a 1998 Nissan Skyline GT-R, a stock representation of the R34 model. These are High-Wealth vehicles, given their average selling price. These vehicles will appear on your road networks.
    Dependencies?
    None required.
    Thank you to Art128 and APSMS for suggesting some of the colors made available!

  23. Anyone who has lived in the city knows the problems associated with traffic. Many roads, especially ones in older and historic neighbourhoods are simply not designed to accommodate large volumes of traffic. And it doesn't help as newer models of cars are up scaled from their prior incarnations. The Fiat 500 is the perfect city car! Staying true to it's original idea of a simple compact; having been designed for the tightest corners and narrowest roads, the Fiat 500 thrives where the midsize would never go!

  24. In the battle for tomorrow, there are often many challenges which must be overcome. Many times in war, the terrain has been a deciding factor in the final outcome. In a treacherous setting with steep mountains, winding valleys and dense foliage it can be very difficult to move units to the next rally point. Until now, the UH-1 Iroquois also known as the Huey can bypass even the most dangerous trails by air, cutting down travel time and proving to be a very resilient chopper in both cargo and frontline duties.
    About the upload:
    This file is a replacement of the Maxis Attack Helicopter. It will appear at the Army Base. This is also a revisiting of an older file which was released in 2012 and later taken down.

  25. What do you get when you take a 30-something year old Buick Regal and paint it black? Well, you get a car that looks intimidating already. But how under the hood? It may be a six cylinder, but at 245 Turbocharged BHP this becomes the car that upstaged the Corvette in the early 1980's! If you're going to take on the street kings, be bold about it! And don't forget to savor the look your opponents give you when they realize they just got dethroned by a Buick GNX!
    About the Upload:
    This file adds the Buick GNX to your road traffic. It will spawn as a mid-wealth vehicle, given it's average selling price as a collector car. The speed has been changed to match the Maxis Porche making it a faster vehicle.
