About This File

This time re-Factory Lots presents a set of six industrial warehouses of different sizes and manufacturing job capacities. All lots are transit-enabled but carry no transit switch information (except for the freight stop):

A large warehouse with multiple, sunken loading bays and rail access
acting as a Freight Station (10x8, SD)
A large, flat-roofed warehouse with auxiliary storage (8x4, HD)
Two medium-sized flat roof warehouses (5x4, 5x3, both HD)
A small, old wooden waterfront warehouse (for plopable water, 4x2, SD)
A large, four storey waterfront warehouse (for plopable water, 6x4, SD)

The dependencies (prop packs & texture files) only need to be downloaded once and are identical for all warehouses. SHK's cars are included as prop families, thus change with every plop. In addition the parked cars are various timed RFY props.

[b]NOTE[/b]: [i]For those who would rather download the warehouses individually, each warehouse is available as a separate download on the [url="http://workingman-productions.co.uk/downloads/rfy_warehouse_01.asp"]WMP Exchange[/url]. The dependencies only needed to be downloaded once.[/i]

[b]Lot Details and Information:[/b]
Lot sizes - 01: 10 x 8 tiles; 02: 5x3 tiles; 03: 8x4 tiles; 04: 5x4 tiles; 05: 5x3 tiles; 06:
Menu position - All warehouses are located in the Rail Transit Menu
Plop cost - varies;

[b]Credit where credit is due:[/b]
[i]Shokthrpy [/i]made the excellent parking lot dependencies, textures, and cars;
[i]Paeng [/i]is responsible for what he calls "grunge concrete" textures;
[i]Jestarr [/i]made most of the lampposts;
and [i]DocRorlach [/i]provided most of the textures, fences & freight props;
The warehouse models and some of the props (a few) are our own.

      Welcome to the development thread for CT14 lots and BAT. Here's a quick list of current releases so you don't have to scroll through the thread to find them all:
      North American Freight Sidings
      Llama Terminal Company
      SABER LA River
      Troy Gasholder Building
      FAB Diagonal Industrials
       
      Lowrider Props
      In-N-Out Lowrider Show
      North American Freight Sidings original first post:
      Inspired by the lack of existing lots representing protypical North American freight railroad sidings, I've created a system of lots that can be used to create eye-candy rail sidings. They are transit-enabled for appearance. I have been encouraged to share my progress in a dedicated thread by helpful feedback in the Show Us Your Railroads general thread, especially from SimCoug, T-Wrecks, raynev1. And the whole thing wouldn't exist without the Jestarr props.


      Features:
      18 ploppable lots for different railcar types on double track rail Transit enabled connections to make the lots fit in seamlessly anywhere Three prop families to provide a variety from Jestarr's boxcars, intermodal and general merchandise freight ("Junkers") RRW compatibility Known issues:
      Transparent texture bug as described here http://community.simtropolis.com/forums/topic/42425-transparent-texture-issue/ The lots need custom icons created and added, through Reader as described here: http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Tutorial:Inserting_a_custom_menu_icon_with_the_Ilive_Reader Future development ideas:
      Single Track Rail lots don't match exactly when using textures extracted from the RAM .dat, and I probably need permission to use them separately in any case. So, STR sidings may be a separate release at some point. Four-track lots would be prototypical for large yard trackage, but don't exist in RRW. Custom textures might allow some eye-candy four-track lots in future, this would resemble an updated subset of NCD. Dependencies:
      BSCMegaProps JES Vol01 (v1.0) - http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=342 For RRW, you need the NAM with RRW enabled. Download:
      Please report bugs here. Thanks!

      As requested by @MissVanleider (Thus the MV on the lot name)
      This is the smaller version of SM2 Heritage Roundhouse. (Lot size 14X14)
      The new distinctive name is SM2_MV_Heritage Roundhouse. (Lot size = 8X14)
      Cost to plop = 30,000
      Cost to bulldoze = 3,000
      Monthly maintenance = 220
      Provides 34 jobs.
      This version will not allow trains to pass through however you can still connect the rail and street stubs to the game networks for a better visual effect.
      Dependencies
      The original SM2 Heritage Roundhouse and its dependencies.
      http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3500
      or
      If you don't want the original lot to show up in your rail menu then just remove "SM2 Heritage Roundhouse.dat" from your plugin.
      The rest must remain in the plugin in order to have no issues with SM2_MV_Heritage Roundhouse.
      Enjoy

      Hello everyone.
      I present you with SM2 Heritage Roundhouse.
      In the past, rail roundhouses were extensively used all over North America as a repair facility for trains, specifically locomotives. They were designed with that characteristic roundish design in order to take less real estate when building a train repair facility. Coupled with a massive turntable, they greatly decreased a rail yard footprint.  There are a few still in operation (very few) and they are mostly used to house old and retired locomotives donated by railway companies. Sort of like a museum for engines. Some have been converted into retail space while keeping the nostalgic feel of days gone past by displaying old engines and equipment on the front of the building.              
      This lot represents months of preparations and lots of specific props making. Together with a detailed and realistic custom base texture, I tried to capture reality as much as possible.
      Vester's latest train engines prop pack fits this lot perfectly due to the many angles he released. Also with the usage of a clever trick, you are now able to pick different textures (companies liveries) from 5 different texture packs he released along the engine prop pack.
      Once you install vester's prop pack you must choose one of his texture colors in order for the locomotives to show properly.
      The lot is 14X14 and is designed to allow either freight and passenger trains to cross the DTR section at the bottom of the lot, the other rail exits/entries will only connect visually and so will the street stubs.
      Plop cost 45,000
      Bulldoze cost 4,500
      Power consumed 190
      Water consumed 120
      Maintenance cost 220/month
      It will also provide 34 jobs.
      You will find it under the rail menu.
      This lot makes use of an extensive array of timed props with multiple angle designs in order to achieve a sort of animation with HD props. There are also many other timed props so that the lot looks livelier throughout the day. Action starts at 7am and keeps going until 6pm (closing time) after that time the lot will look empty because everyone has gone home but for one person and one vehicle, the night security guard on the left lower rail hut area.
      From time to time you may see overlapping timed props, especially at the turntable sequence, this is due to game lag and depending on the speed of your processor you may or may not see it. Wait a few game days and it will correct itself.
      Dependency list.

      I'm including one of the texture packs vester released on the dependency list. However you can choose any of the 5 he made.
      Lot custom texture and timed props exemplars are included.
      A big thank you goes to rivit for creating a single template for vester's out of the ordinary exemplars in order for me to make timed ones. Thank you Ron!
      Also, thank you vester for the engine prop pack and girafe for the ever beautiful trees and greenery models!!
      Enjoy

      I have been building central transit hubs for large tiles containing major arteries as the switching point for intra-tile to inter-tile transit.
      It just dawned on me that this has been based on a fallacy of basic math/analysis.
      Given:
      (1)  Most tiles will due to the infinite commuter problem often enter one end and exit the opposite.
      (2)  The tiles are squares.  In most cases, the transit off a perpendicular side is the length of 1 side whether traveled by hub or loop.
      (3)  In case #1, a hub yields 1X side distance and a loop 2X side distance.  As there can only be one opposite exit, a simple direct shortcut suffices to resolve this case without a generalized hub.
      Conclusion:
      (1)  The loop is far simpler to construct than the hub.
      (2a)  All above ground building can happen within the loop without the loop becoming a consideration.
      (2b)  The loop greatly reduces clutter.
      (3)  Transit inside the loop is mainly local to bring transit to the loop.
      ---
      I think loops are to become a major feature of all infrastructure.  Comments?
      Thanks.

      Using the route query tools.  I only see freight moving to a harbor by truck and not rail.  Is this correct?
       
      Thanks!

    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
    • I love, love, LOVE seeing Louisiana BATS in the game. Hope you'll come back soon and upload some more.
    • Well, yes ... but also ... ... a map. Depends on the network layout? But no - these are two different maps. That's like two different planets. They'll have to dance alone. Did you ever notice there is a sexual practice - since the beginning - that transcends already gender difference - a very common sexual practice you can't call it rather heterosexual  nor homosexual? You can do it too. Everyday. And so - overcome sociocultural dichotomy not only in theory but with your own hands.
