About This File

Hello everyone,

Over time I have received several requests to release some of the lots I created for use in my [url="http://community.simtropolis.com/journal/1902-insulo-and-kaskaskia/"]City Journal[/url]. I have been hesitant to do this because I did not have the time to mod the lots so that they are appropriate for release. Now that I have some time, I have decided to release some of the lots I use. These two lots are intended as parks for an urban area or a Japanese-style city. I originally created these lots for the city of [url="http://community.simtropolis.com/journal/1902/entry-18971-aodai-part-one-exploring-tokukai/"]Tokukai[/url].

Future releases will depend on how much of the files I used for Insulo can be recovered from my old computer.

[size=2]Note: These lots may look better with a grey concrete sidewalk mod, but that is not required.[/size]

[color=#ff0000][b]If you downloaded this file before 3:40 EDT November 20th there is a new version that corrects the menu icon glitch.[/b][/color]
Simply delete the files from your plugins and replace them with the new ones. I apologize for the inconvenience.
The updated package also includes a readme file.

[b]Disclaimer[/b]
These are released personal lots, and thus may have errors. Please report any errors you find in the comments section and I will try to address them. However, I am not responsible for any harm resulting from the use of this file. Because it was originally created as a personal lot I made no attempt to minimize the number of dependencies, and will not be reducing them. I think all of the dependencies I've chosen are good to have and several are very widely used.

      Description:
      Mainly created for the center of a large or medium-sized city, this square is supposed to honor the mayor and his wife/her husband (or any other famous personality, for that matter). Two statues (one male, one female) are located in its center, surrounded by trees on one side and fountains on the other. Of course, common accessoires, like a refreshment stand and a news stand, cannot be lacking there.
      For further information, please refer to the readme in the download.

      And again, there's a challenge entry from me... Why being limited to either trees, statues, OR fountains whenever you can have all three? I've been impressed by a particular square layout seen on the challenge thread about the Parks and Plazas theme with a plaza containing a lot of trees on it, therefore, I designed a part of this lot in this way.

      So I was recently looking at some Japan driving videos and got inspired to make some highway pillars.
      I'm planning to make an entire set of various types of pillars in this style, even a 6cell over-canal pillar. (if it goes okay)
      Tell me what you think about my first attempt, I need to nail the style and the details before I start making other variations.
      Constructive criticism welcome, also any ideas.
      By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings? I should just make it just the pillar, without the small details - pipe, wires, supports.
      Not sure when they're going to be done and available. (I still have to actually buy the game... lol)

      NOTICE: Version two is now up here on Simtropolis and has been updated to the same items as the previous version on Steam. So for Steam users, you don't need to do anything, just rebuild your avenues.   Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this. If you built avenues with previous versions I ask you to kindly rebuilt them with these pieces.   ---   Whats new in version 2?   - Menu Icons! Yes you read that right, no more scrolling and waiting for pop-up bubbles. This version comes with shiny new menu icons for your enjoyment!  Big thank you to Ratonces, who showed me how to do it.     - No more guide grids; easy, flexible placement; tolerates slopes.   - More realistic spacing of elements. Less fountains, trees and benches.   - Removed garbage production and reduced EntertainmentAccumulation, as well as Tourism numbers.   - Changed piece size standard from 6x10 to 6x12, fillers from 4x2 to 6x2.       The MAv2 is an Integrated Park, Roads and Electric Grid system. This version features major improvements in usability, look and versatility.   17 Assets in total, neatly packaged in one zip file, allow the creation of a beautiful avenue system with integrated park effect and electric transmission as a bonus.   The Guide Grid system from the previous version has been done away with completely and several new avenue pieces added instead.   These can be plopped anywhere(except in water, shore or on very steep terrain), and don't require to be placed next to a road as normal parks do. They are fully functional both as parks and as transport systems. You can zone next to them, build services, bus-stops, and even make your own Avenue Median filler parks (6x2) to customize the look of your avenues. Or zone in the median for some nice shopping spaces.   The Cims love to use the avenue, they sit on the benches, they walk on the median, they gather on corners, they take the pedestrian overpasses. It makes your city acquire an additional layer of liveliness and realism.   The pieces have a unified lanscaped look. Common elements are benches, fountains, trashcans, flower pots, trees, shrubs, and other vanilla props.   Some variety is added through the use of vending machines props, billboards and kiosks, as well as "crowd" props to bring some spots to life. More customization is available if you make your own fillers in the Asset Editor, or as future releases from me.   The zip file, (or steam collection, which I'll update next) contains all you need to build your Avenues.   My videos about the first version are now obsolete. I'll be making new ones in the next few days.   Here is a quick-and-dirty demo with youtube annotations, when I get some time I'll make a proper video.   [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=La_OaPUAvGY[/media]   An image tutorial will be added has been added to this page as well, but the main idea is this:     How to use - Simple General Instructions   Familiarize yourself with the pieces, which are now all in the parks menu and have icons.   Pick your first piece and plop it.   Select the two-lane one-way-road with trees tool and drag a 4 cell (300 construction cost in hard mode) stretch from an outgoing stub on the avenue piece.   Using the grid created by the road you just drew as a guide, draw another 4 cell road but this time in the opposite direction.   Now you can snap another piece into those stubs. Then repeat the above process, making sure to use the two-lane one-way-road with trees tool and ensuring you are always making 300 construction cost (6 cells) segments.   Rinse and repeat until you are done making any layout you want. Easy huh?   How to use - perpendicular avenues   To make a crossing between two perpendicular avenues, or a T intersection, use the 4 node avenue intersection piece. Plop it, then do the same as above, but when you drag from the stubless nodes, this time drag 2 extra, or 6 cells (450 contruction cost in hard mode) This is to account for the missing stubs on this piece. If you don't care about symmetry or about putting fillers in all gaps, you can drag as many cells as you want in length.   You can use the 5 node piece to make an intersection as above but with a 6-lane road leaving on one side.   How to use - Intersections   I've condensed U-turns, Ts and Intersections for the normal roads into one piece for each road type. For normal "intersection" pieces (ones without the word "nodes" in them), you plop the piece, then you can either leave it as it is for a U-Turn effect, drag the respective road type from one side for a T intersection, or from both sides for a full intersection.     Other   The rest of the pieces are fairly intuitive once you get the hang of how it works.    There are some Half-T pieces, which means the road joins the avenue but only on one side; and Double-T pieces, which means the roads join on both sides but dont traverse the median. Then there is a curve piece for making avenue corners, a straight piece, and a filler for the gaps between sections.   The filler you can use to fill these gaps left between pieces, or you can zone in them for some shops to be in the median, or you can make your own 6x2 filler parks to add variety!   Have fun building!     ---------   Suggestions as always are welcome, as well as any comments or problems you may discover.   fb.com/TPBsWorkshop   Steam Workshop   Youtube   Are you rich and want to help a Mexican buy his tacos?
