About This File

[color="#FF0000"][b]Cities XL 2012 compatible[/b][/color]

This mod contains 9 types of forests with three types of trees declined each of three different soils.
So these are plazas, you'll find them in Environment / Decorations.

These places have been configured to accept slopes of 60 °.
To be sure to keep the slopes, draw a route up the slope and a second lower and after, put your area of forest. The trees follow the slope and the ground will respect the roadside.

So there are three categories of trees according (approximately) the geographic areas:
- Deciduous trees in temperate regions
- Conifers for cooler regions
- Exotic varieties for the tropics
Low shrubs are planted to enhance the appearence of undergrowth.
Notice that the tree density is high enough to give precisely the impression of forest which is not the case with the textures of the game (or Malaya's).

Each category is broken down on three grounds:
- The texture of "waste" of brown color that looks like in this case a forest soil with fallen leaves
- The green grass texture of the Wooded Park Area of the game, allowing transition between textures
- And a splendid set of 3 textures designed expressly by Peluche, approaching more the rich colors of the undergrowth.

These plazas seem to be less memory-intensive than individual trees.






This mod works only with Cities XL 2011.

If this mod pleased you, there are five other tree mods :

I have the same problem as TomBB, I only get the base texture, no trees appear. Am I missing a dependancy?

Ignore this comment, I had downloaded the other tree mods first. I guess they are dependancies?

The Forest plazas mod works well. But you do also need to download and install the single tree packs listed as links in the text above. I guess they are dependencies, needed to get this mod to work in Cities XL 2012.

I just tried it on a Steam installed version of Cities XL. I installed this Forest plaza mod by its own on Cities XL 2012 and you only get the ground floor texture. With the Exotic trees Mod, Deciduous trees Mod, Conifers Mod, Shrubs and bushes, and Spring trees Mod it works perfectly.
* The directory for the .packs files was on my machine D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\cities xl 2012\Paks

      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. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

    • Attention here, folks!!! The Seaview Apartments model in this download has the same IID as the Cast Iron Lofts model from Don Miguel! So it won't grow the way it should!
    • I know it's sized 2x1, but what kind of residential do I need to zone for this to grow? Light, medium, or high density? Or does it not matter? Anyone who can answer I appreciate it.
    • Love your work, but since a handful of files now from different users require offsite files that link to dead links I wish it was a rule here that all dependencies should be on site somehow. Thanks for the reup of the files...
    • I'm still working on the Maxis Vanilla tilesets presentation, but yeah its endless how many amazing artists have contributed to the SC4 repository over the past 14 years.  The problem with the tilesets and with RCI is that there's too much repetition.   I'm going to use for the first time a Maxis blocker that will eliminate all vanilla repetition and reveal whatever user created programming defines.  However, my project is not specific to agriculture.   We'll get back to that later.
    • @RandyE Thanks! I grabbed that one too. I'm not ready yet to kill them all, but I do want other stage 3 farm buildings to compete with Pedriana. Ideally I'd like to find a few more. In the meantime I'm now on a downloading frenzy getting all of @dk1's stuff. Their simple elegance (and the convenience of no dependencies) makes them ideal for mixing in with my otherwise nearly plain vanilla Maxis content.
