Mods & Tools

Custom tools, modifications and enhancements for SimCity 4

695 Files

  1. NOTE: Due to some technical issues, the file is not directly hosted on the Simtropolis server.  The download button presently will take you to an off-site, registration-free mirror at ModDB, which can also be accessed here.  We hope to have the file available directly through the STEX again shortly, and apologize for any temporary inconvenience.
    The Network Addon Mod (NAM) combines all transportation network-related fixes, additions and new creations that have been released so far. It will add countless new features to the existing network tools, such as new overpasses, highway onramps, intersections, ped-malls, a ground light rail network, roundabouts and turning lanes.
     
    INSTALLATION
    This is the Mac version of the NAM.  For the Windows version, see here.
    NOTE: In order to install this mod, you will need to have an archiving utility capable of opening .7z files (Keka is one free option).
    To install NAM 35, unzip the file "NetworkAddonMod35_macOS.7z". Inside it, you will find the file "NetworkAddonMod35_macOS.app". This app file is a Wineskin over the Windows installer, allowing it to run on a Mac. Run it as normal, selecting "Yes" when asked about porting to a Mac. It will install to Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/Network Addon Mod and Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins/z___NAM.
    Note that the Controller Compiler cannot be called from the installer on a Mac, so the full NAM Controller will be installed. The Controller Compiler can be run manually by going to Documents/SimCity 4/NAM Auxiliary Files/Tools/Controller Compiler, and running the file NAMControllerCompiler.jar.
    DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, UNINSTALL YOUR PREVIOUS NAM VERSION if you are an existing NAM user. The NAM installer can detect your previous installation options by reading the folder, and as such, it is safe (and recommended) to install NAM 35 on top of your old version. If you remove the previous install, however, you may not remember exactly which options you had selected, which could potentially cause issues in your cities.
    The Aspyr re-release is known to have a quirk in which the number of files (not their size) contained in the Plugins folder can cause crashes to desktop. This issue is inexplicably triggered with a much lower number of files if the user is running the game while not connected to the internet. To avoid these crashes, we recommend that the user use a tool like the cross-platform JDatPacker in order to combine the NAM files.
    REQUIREMENTS
    While the Windows version requires the EP 1 Update 1 patch (Version 1.1.638), Aspyr has never released a comparable patch for the Mac version. An additional file has been included to compensate for the lack of the transit pathing fixes included in EA/Maxis' official patch for the Windows version, and no other patches are required.
    Tech Support: Since NAM 35 is now the most recent release, technical support for NAM 34 and earlier is no longer available.

    Special Thanks: The NAM Team would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the members of the community for their continued support over the past 12 1/2 years the mod has existed.

  2. Remade and renamed, the Sandstone Euro NAM is now available.
     
    *** If you downloaded this before the 22rd December 2014, please download the bugfix "MGB SEN_Tuleps_FIX" which contains a replacement file for "MGB SEN_Tuleps" that fixes an incorrectly flipped texture for the Road T End - Ave TULEP piece. This fix is now included in main download. Should you spot any issues (or pieces with Maxis white lingering) please do feel free to let me know, I probably missed it and would like it fixed as much as you. ***
     
    This Mod contains a complete Sandstone override for much of the NAM content including the RHW, NWM, TULEPs, Tram in Avenue/Road/ Street, GLR/Rural GLR, Turbo Roundabouts, Misc Fixes and more too. It has been my aim to kill every bit of Maxis white possible, and I'm finally at a point where I am satisfied I've met that goal. I've made this mod for my own game, as I find I don't use the NAM pieces that don't fit, so they are based on Euro Textures only right now. I use a LHD setup, but have included RHD versions also and from the limited testing I could do myself for such a large mod, they seem to be pretty complete.
     
    Load Order
     
    To ensure these files load after the NAM, please ensure you copy the folder in the zip file into your SimCity4 Plugins folder without renaming it. Also note it will need to load after any mod that changes the textures of the included components.
     
    Options

    You can choose just the files you need, or decide to use a complete install, whichever you do please remove all the LHD files if you are a RHD user or all the RHD files if you are a LHD user, otherwise stoplines may appear on the incorrect side.
     
    Dependencies

    The Tram in Road textures require the file "TIR-s3d fix.dat" contained in Magneto's Super Light Asphalt Mod or a few will not display correctly.
     
    The Japanese NAM Facelift Mod (links contained in tutorial) is highly recommended, if using this make sure that the Sandstone Euro NAM loads after the Japanese Facelift Mod.
     
     
    Notes:
     
    Please read the included readme, it goes into more detail than I have here and will help to avoid problems with this mod. If you are still stuck or have any comments, feel free to comment in my shack on Simtropolis or visit me at my regular hangout on Simpeg.

    A big thank you to David G. Varona for making the Alpha textures for the Turbo Roundabouts and GLR, plus for showing me how to use photo-editing tools to lighten the workload on this project considerably.
     
    I would also like to thank all those community members who've offered me assistance in order to improve the quality of the released project. Their time and the time taken by those who have written various tutorials has enabled me to create this mod in the first place.

  4. Mac users only :D 
     
    Hello friends today I bring you this program is very Simple but it will be very useful for many Mac users.
     
    As we all know has come out a new application that Simcity 4 for Mac, this application has brought new challenges, since to install the mod or plugins is a little different to the last version that had come out for mac, making it with a little more difficult the installation of mod.
     
    At present you'd have to go to the Terminal and write a command to see the library or other hidden folders, since this folder was hidden in the release of Mac os x Lion in forward.
    With this program you don't have that i wrote the code, or command to be able to find the hidden folder named bookshop, with just a click will show all hidden folders and with another click cerrarias and leave everything was normal again, is so simple this program i hope you enjoy it. :rofl:  :thumb:

    A pair of militarized four-wheelers that inspired two generations of light utility vehicles which would ultimately come to serve most of the world's armies in one form or another.
     
    The compact and adaptable design of the classic American Jeep earned it a spot among General Dwight Eisenhower's four most important allied weapons during WWII. The base model, with its superior off-road capabilities, became the foundation for countless military and civilian variants found anywhere the going gets rough.
     
    With twice the weight and four times more payload capacity, the iconic Humvee expanded operational tolerances to include a more diverse range of extreme driving conditions. Specially equipped models can negotiate five feet of water, climb a 60 degree incline fully loaded, and even protect occupants from roadside IEDs.
     
    This dynamic duo represents almost a century of US ingenuity aimed at safely and efficiently transporting soldiers through the perilous terrain indigenous of war zones around the globe. Both replace the default military truck in painstaking detail complete with UDI, Night lighting, and props. Dependencies are immaterial, but the mods cannot be installed concurrently. So, choose which one best reflects the era and/or context of your city, and bring a piece of combat engineering history to your homefront.
     
    Required (Choose only one):
    HMMWV M966.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    HMMWV M966-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
    Army Jeep V2.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    Army Jeep V2-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
     
    Optional:
    M966_7a3e5eff.dat - Installs a Humvee demonstration lot for use with the Lot Editor

  6. FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    A new look for the intermodal shipping containers appearing mainly on the Maxis seaport but also on many other custom lots, automata, and props. By definition, the containers are designed to be moved from one mode of transport to another (from ship, to rail, to truck) without unloading and reloading. Thus, with every trip their painted steel exteriors endure repeated assaults from salt water, brake dust, and graffiti. A crucial element that the Maxis textures fail to illustrate. Frankly, the default coloration is more suggestive of Lego blocks or a shattered rubik's cube.
     
    Fanta's exhaustive sampling eventually yielded a remarkably authentic texture available in two different color combinations to suit individual tastes. They each replace the cartoon like surfaces with a much more refined HD texture that works with both hardware and software acceleration. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. This mod will boost the authenticity of any loading dock, but is indispensable when absolute realism is paramount.
     
    Required (Choose only one):
    Container Skin-96.dat - Installs a subdued version of the original textures with a visible pattern of wear
    Container Skin.dat - Installs a more distressed look befitting of dirty industrial zones
     
    Optional:
    Original Container Prop.dat - Includes default container props that are compatible with the above textures
    Container Prop_dcc5b702.sc4lot - A demonstration lot for use in the Lot Editor

    A cosmetic upgrade for the larger of two harbor cranes appearing in the game. Mounted on rails and protruding over the water, these container cranes are primarily associated with, but aren't necessarily limited to high-usage seaports. Traditional cranes manipulate their payload via spooled cable working in conjunction with a pivoting mast. In contrast, Port cranes utilize a fixed cantilever mast to achieve considerably more capacity and stability. As a side effect, the bulky extensions could potentially interfere with each other or adjacent equipment. The industry addresses that problem with two equally viable solutions distinguishable in the game only by minor superficial differences. One adaptation from Cities XL extends and withdraws the mast horizontally on rails positioned above a fixed base (pics 1-3). The other alternative from Red Alert 3 repurposes the hinged mast for limited vertical movement in the absence of a payload (pic 4). Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. This mod will boost the authenticity of any port city, but is indispensable when absolute realism is paramount.
     
    Required (Choose only one):
    RA3 SeaportCrane.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    RA3 SeaportCrane-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
    CXL SeaportCrane.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    CXL SeaportCrane-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
     
    Optional: 
    \SeaSidePort\*.* - Installing this folder will make the large crane chosen above overwrite the [stex='29496']Small Harbor Cranes[/stex] on the default seaport as well.

    A cosmetic upgrade for the smaller of two container cranes appearing in the game. These rail mounted cranes are primarily associated with, but aren't necessarily limited to low-usage seaports. Their versatility and slim stature is ideal when size and weight are important factors. The first alternative, derived from Emergency 4 (aka 911), closely resembles the original, but has much greater detail and genuine signs of wear. The other option from Tropico 4 radiates vibrant colors for maximum visibility in a bustling port environment. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. This mod will boost the authenticity of any port city, but is indispensable when absolute realism is paramount.   
     
    Choose only one from the following four files:
     
    Emergency4 Small Crane.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    Emergency4 Small Crane-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.

  11. *** NOTICE: [stex='29460']Lifelike Landfills[/stex] by FANTA1990 received a major update almost immediately following release. New to version 5.0 is actual garbage processing functionality! Revisit the upload for a complete list of enhancements. ***
     
    FANTA1990 Presents:
     
    The current selection of custom waste management facilities provides substantial flexibility when deciding where and how to process garbage. On the other hand, there's much less room for customizing the waste itself. In response, this mod introduces a set of Mayor Mode Ploppables (MMP) for fine tuning the look and feel of Fanta's [stex='29460']Lifelike Landfills[/stex] or any other sloppy scenery.
     
    The skillful interpretation of rubbish heaps featured in the [stex='17245']PEG CDK3 Garbage Docks[/stex] proved remarkably congruent with Fanta's new landfill texture. So the foul smelling flora was transferred to a new icon in the Mayor Mode menu containing eight rotating sizes of the putrid piles. For maximum effect, built-in garbage props were also assembled into four additional icons for a grand total of five new icons with 29 prop cycles. Perhaps these tools will encourage a shift in the collective mentality to coping with waste instead of making it disappear.
     
    Required:
    PEG-CDK3_Trash Pile MMP.dat - (Included) Inserts 1 new icon for plopping custom garbage piles in Mayor Mode --> Landscape Tools --> Plant Flora
     
    Dependencies:
    PEG-CDK3_GarbageDock_RESOURCE.dat - [stex='17245']PEG CDK3 Garbage Docks[/stex]
     
    Optional:
    Garbage MMP.dat - (Included) Inserts 4 new icons for plopping Maxis garbage props in Mayor Mode --> Landscape Tools --> Plant Flora

    When it comes to waste management in the game, landfills are probably the least popular option. After all, they exude pollution in every direction, occupy valuable grid space, and are woefully uninteresting to look at. The default tool just doesn't offer much room for originality other than size and shape of the zone. Nothing can make a huge heap of steaming refuse pretty, but now thanks to Fanta, it no longer has to be boring. This mod empowers you to assemble an extensive set of self-orienting puzzle pieces in endless combinations to form a lifelike plot of ordered filth.
     
    To be clear, all of the tiles except for one are purely cosmetic and pollution free. New with version 5.0 is a 1x1 puzzle piece that depicts an ordinary bulldozer with a very special function. Each tile plopped mimics the behavior of a small incinerator in respect to garbage reduced and pollution emitted. When plopped strategically throughout a landfill, they endow it with function in addition to form (Go ahead and eat your cake...) Review the change log for a complete list of enhancements.
     
    As before, combine them with other garbage consumption mods to achieve a captivating waste management solution totally unique to your city (A clever example using the [stex='4569']PEG Garbage Chute[/stex] is illustrated). Historically, landfills are the most common form of garbage disposal worldwide. So, it's not unreasonable to expect at least one such dump site in every region.
     
    Required:
    Landfill Plop V5.dat - Inserts several new icons for plopping landfill puzzle pieces in Mayor Mode --> Utilities Tools --> Build Sanitation Systems.

    Optional:
    [stex='24509']SimPEG Plop Orientation Tool (SPOT)[/stex] - Facilitates alignment of puzzle pieces using a visual queue in the lot preview.

    A modern substitute for the WWII era missile launcher parked on the Army Base. Known worldwide, the acclaimed Patriot (Phased Array Tracking Radar to Intercept On Target) surface-to-air missile protects every allied nation from a rogue ballistic missile attack, intercepting them with it's classified radar guidance system. As a prop it cannot be fired, but looks great aimed skyward in any military setting.
     
    Required:
    Emergency4 MissleLauncher Prop.dat - Replaces the default missile launcher with a rendering from Emergency 4 (aka 911) that may also be used in the Lot Editor.
     
    Optional:
    Emergency4 MissleLauncher Plop.dat - Adds the ability to plop the missile launcher on a 1x1 transparent lot via a new icon in Mayor Mode --> Civic Tools --> Build Parks

    A dramatic cosmetic enhancement for every city with growable lots. Expanding on an [stex='20644']earlier mod[/stex] by srainy, this particular mod pushes realism to the limit with the most intricate, highest resolution construction cranes available yet. Every aspect from the counterweight to the trolley motor and the hook block is visible in painstaking detail all the way to zoom 6. At least three distinct variations and colors will randomly replace the default crane that normally appears during the construction of a multistory lot. The vast majority of users will not observe any affect on the game's performance. However, even the software version will make you do a triple take. The proven designs originated in Emergency 4 (aka 911) and serve absolutely no practical purpose in the game. UDI and Night Lights don't apply and there are zero dependencies. Any mayor can instantly achieve a substantial boost in realism with minimal effort by installing one of the following two files inside this download:
     
    Emergency4 Construction Tower Crane.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    Emergency4 Construction Tower Crane-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.

    Ever wonder who's driving that little green go-cart wandering around the tarmac at your airport? Among all the figures available in the game, a policeman looked best and was chosen to sit behind the wheel. Next, the absence of any baggage behind the baggage cart had to be addressed. So, three simple, yet realistic curtained cars were attached to the rear. The resulting combination fit the bill nicely, so that particular mod was deemed complete.
     
    To boost realism even further, another more elaborate option was created from a series of aircraft ground support vehicles extracted from "Emergency 4" (aka "911"). A modern fuel truck ranked most essential and was first to be included. The generic trolley was then replaced with a five car assembly, each having a unique function and appearance complete with intricate detailing. Finally, self-propelled boarding stairs were positioned amongst the other two vehicles completing the trio. Any additional equipment only detracted from the simulated independence of the others. The result is a mobile group of easily recognizable airplane support apparatus.
     
    Both options work equally well and are available to suit a variety of individual tastes. Neither require dependencies. Even the most impressive and realistic airports will be incomplete without this one inconspicuous, yet crucial mod.
     
    Required:
    Luggage_AIRx3-Police.dat - Replaces the default luggage cart with a 4-car trolley manned by a policeman.
    -OR-
    Emergency4 Airport Vehicles.dat - Replaces the default luggage cart with a mobile group of ground support equipment
     
    Optional:
    Emergency4 Airport Vehicles_7f1038a5.sc4lot - Optionally installs a demonstration lot with props for use in the Lot Editor

    A few more extravagant options for your ocean going holiday travelers. 
     
    Engineered for tropical regions, a colonial style boat from Cities XL showcases an expansive wooden deck embedded with an Olympic size swimming pool. Raised lifeboats accommodate an extended promenade ideal for observing ocean flora or a leisurely twilight stroll. The distinctive helipad on its bow provides exclusive VIP tours when not responding to an emergency medical evacuation.
     
    Adapted for cooler regions, the other ship from Tropico 4 specializes in climate controlled luxury beneath a spacious 20 acre atrium. Vented skylights, living trees, and grandiose fountains play host to an ever present flock of stowaway birds. This lavish floating palace combines the furnishings of a modern shopping mall, the glamour of a casino, and the service of a five-star hotel.
     
    As mayor, you reserve the right to commandeer the helm on any of the vessels without notice (UDI). Fortunately, advanced autopilot technology eliminates the need for extensive nautical training (No Dependencies). To make up for the lack of night lighting, passengers are treated to an increased occurrence of Beluga Whale sightings off the ships hull. This dynamic duo of lush luxury liners integrates so naturally with the game it seems as if they're unlocked rather than add-ons.
     
    Choose one of the following two files inside the download:
     
    New Cruise and UDI MOD.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    New Cruise and UDI MOD-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.
     
    Ship Generators.dat - (Optional) Cruise Ship Generating lot also found in Fanta's [stex='29364']Automata Generators Vol1[/stex].

    There are many reasons a gamer may choose to forego automata replacement mods, preferring instead the default vehicles shipped with SC4. In so doing, certain cosmetic anomalies that were present from the beginning have to be overlooked, at least until now. The files contained herein do nothing more than re-render standard objects the way they were originally intended to appear. Hence they are very small, have no effect on performance, and will function under any platform and configuration supported by the game. Naturally, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. This package is intended to pick up where Maxis left off, preserving the integrity of the game in a small, but still relevant way.
     
    Maxis FreightEngine Fix.dat - Restores the forward facing panels and far side framework of the Freight Train Engine when viewed from the right-front.
    MidJetPlane FIX.dat - Restores the rudder and fin assembly directly beneath the horizontal stabilizer on the Mid-Size Jet when viewed from the left-front.
    SkyDiver Skin Fix.dat - Eliminates a section of the fuselage protruding through the wing above the cabin on the Skydiver Plane when viewed from the left-rear.
    armybase_jumpjacksX3.dat - Reconfigures the formation of troops gathered at military installations to eliminate overlap and realign 3 distinct groups of soldiers performing calisthenics (Additional arrangements are available on Fanta's website).

    When it comes to replacing that default blurry blue bus, the sheer number of choices can potentially trigger a migraine. Continue reading to avoid that headache altogether using another one of Fanta's signature mods. He began by dividing available funds among three different size buses, imported from Cities XL, making the entire network more efficient. A half-length community bus serves special needs passengers and offers door-to-door service. A double-decker unit provides the best profit margins for high volume routes. Finally, the conventional single-decker is most versatile and can fill in for the other two if necessary. Fanta then settled on a generic, yet streamlined blue and white texture with heavily tinted windows to achieve an ultra-polished look and overall cooler cab. Classic front and rear marquee signs advertise the destination to waiting patrons while dual access doors assure a smooth entry and exit, minimizing stops which hypothetically reduces traffic congestion and commute times. Subtle details like side view mirrors and ventilation ducts nail down the overall realism. Finally, you can expect well tuned night lighting, multiple selection UDI, comprehensive props, available HD textures, and not a single dependency.
     
    Choose one of the following two files inside the download:
     
    CXL BUS.dat - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
    CXL BUS-256.dat - May be used with Software Acceleration.

    If you can't beat the paparazzi, make them think you're on their side. Fill the TV station's parking lot with these shiny new minivans outfitted with the very latest in sophisticated comm equipment courtesy of Emergency 4. They'll spend more time turning dials and pressing buttons, and less time peeping through your keyhole. A direct link to [stex='29336']Fanta's News Chopper[/stex] ensures they'll never lose a story in traffic. Of course, most commuters will make way when they notice the swiveling satellite dish, two-tone paint job, and flashy decals pasted to every surface. An overhead wind deflector reduces noise, and tinted windows conceal exactly where the camera is pointed to keep things real. This is essentially an automata reskin, so there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. Since the action never stops, all models come with Nightvision technology (Nightlighting), GPS (UDI), and spare parts (props). Help your sims stay informed through good and bad with these state-of-the-art correspondence vehicles.

    With so many sims becoming earth conscious, the need to transport recyclable material has skyrocketed. Whether destined as next week's newspaper or a sugary soda can, it first must find its way to a specialized sanitation facility. The obvious route from curbside to sorting shed is by road on trucks purpose built to haul the ugly, smelly cargo. Two heavy duty rigs, one for presorted debris and another for bulk refuse have been submitted to Waste Management for approval. Both are manufactured by GTA IV Motors and come standard with UDI, Night lighting, and props. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. These work horses fit right in with any custom recycling center and will literally take a load off your overworked Garbage trucks, including Fanta's own [stex='29341']Authentic Garbage Truck[/stex].
     
    To sweeten the deal, a bonus Toxic Waste Truck is included, tax and title free!

    One of his first and probably most useful mods. The concept is simple. Combine several specialized buildings in a single lot to enable each one's respective vehicle in the UDI menu. Vehicles unlocked include, but aren't necessarily limited to the following: All three civilian helicopters, the Military chopper, Fighter Jet, Firefighting Jet, UFO, Landing Strip Aircraft, and many others. Some conditions may be unavoidable such as positioning the lot adjacent to a mass transit track to test drive a train. This mod is very rudimentary, so it might not work in every situation. Try to keep feedback constructive and requests may be implemented in a future release. It's intended only as a convenient way to sample and test Fanta's growing collection of automata.

    Breath life into your skies and water ways with a series of lots built specifically to spawn a variety of marine vessels and one to give your resident dare devils an outlet for their dangerous appetites.
     
    1x1_AirShowParkV2.dat - The crown gem of this package will thrill your sims with regular and sometimes disastrous air shows.
    Recreational Boat Gen.dat - Plop directly on water to swiftly generate wake with yachts and speed boats to stir up your seas.
    Cruise & Cargo Ship Gen.dat - Creates two menu icons, one for thumping cargo ships and another that will cause cruise ships to materialize.
    Fishing Boat Gen + Cargo.dat - Cleverly spawns commercial fishing vessels complete with smoke and seagulls using inconspicuous bouys to prevent surface distortions. The technique is tied to cargo ships, so they too will occasionally crop up amongst the others.
    Steam Boat Gen.dat - Will add a classical feel to your marine setting with the appearance of steam ships trailed by dirty plumes of smoke and steam.
     
    All of the above generators appear in the parks menu. The Maxis Air Force Base must exist in the plugins folder for proper operation of the Air Show Park and Steam Ship Generator. You can download it from the Dutch site below if necessary. SimCityKurier does not require registration and is a well established resource for SimCity 4 content.

    A formidable family of cutting edge emergency ambulances imported from Emergency 4 (aka 911). Four specialized units outfitted with the latest life saving technology, cast a reassuring presence while racing through red lights to the scene of an accident. This breakneck caravan replaces the game's default Granny Getter with the following randomly generated models:
     
    1.) The "Emergency" ambulance is most common and functions as a portable Emergency Room.
    2.) The "Patient Transport" wagon allows EMT staff to provide continuous treatment while enroute to a permanent facility.
    3.) The "Response" unit is smaller and less equipped enabling it to arrive on scene first and provide immediate care for acutely ill patients.
    4.) The "Charity" bus provides basic healthcare services to less fortunate communities from a specially equipped van.
     
    Each striking vehicle comes with UDI, Night lighting, Props, and a color scheme shared with the Medical Chopper from Fanta's [stex='29336']Civilian Helicopter Facelift[/stex] as highlighted by the included demonstration lot. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration is required. It's a lightweight mod meant to compliment the assortment of ultramodern hospitals available on the STEX and elsewhere.

      5x5 is even more uncommon in my mind especially when it comes to custom content.

      As for the building they're amazing and some of your best work, and the fact they came out at the time CS was at its lowest point in the STEX I think these are a worthy addition.

      Neat idea, but man, this building didn't age well. :/

      Zero7 was a very underated BAT, his texture work here shows why he should be on the pantheon of amazing BATers.

      About 20 mins to render.  Lots of water tiles open for island building.  The beaches are smooth and waterfronts good for building large cities with ports.  The arrangement of tiles is not random but optimized for city organization.  The transitions in elevation follow natural contour lines.  The overall texture is smooth.    This is a good map for a long term project of building a large region of cities connected by sea, land and air.
