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]Urban Playground Park[/b]
A 5x2 park with a food truck and tables, concrete planters and benches, a large playground, and various sims.

[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.

      An appeal for your support: Help us keep the STEX up and running

      11/06/2015

      Hi Community, this is a public appeal for help to keep the STEX up and running! We currently need your help to offset some of our operational costs and upgrades! As you know, we've always relied on community donations to help keep the website running. And while all our admins and moderators volunteer their time to managing the site and community, we do have modest expenses that we need to cover each month which includes our server hosting fees, software and support licenses, etc. So lately, we've experienced a slump with donations and we're beginning to feel the pinch! We would really appreciate your support by way of a donation of any amount in order to keep the site up and running. Of course, as always, we'll send you a gift with a minimum donation as a Thank You. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me!  Sincerely; Dirktator & The Admins PS. Thank you to those who have stepped up and donated the last couple weeks -- we really appreciate it!

      This is my first self made reward. It is a sequel to the three Maxis cemeteries. Otherwise it's quite straightforward.
      It will be unlocked after you have built the three Maxis cemeteries and your city population has reached 120.000 sims.     
      For details see the Read Me.

    • Urban Beautification Pack Volume 2
      By soldyne
      URBAN BEAUTIFICATION PACK VOLUME 2:
      Road Side Trees

      This is a pack of 21 separate lots which focuses on using 1x1 lots with a single seasonal tree in a professionally landscaped fashion to help enhance your cities roads and recreational areas.

      Thanks goes out to Simgoober, Pegasus, Jeronij and Porkie for their absolutely brilliant seasonal props which made these lots the eye candy that they are.Darmok was also an inspiration for the diagonal lots.He has a set of diagonal filler lots on the STEX but I thought they were a bit plain and so I made my own seasonal versions.His lots are not a dependency but you can get them if you wish to add even more variation to your city avenues.

      The UBP: Vol. 2 actually contains three different sets of lots:Road Side Trees, Road Side Trees Diagonal, and a Simple Plaza.All lots are 1x1, have a base and overlay texture designed to blend in with the default maxis sidewalk texture and Jeronij's White Trail Park Pack and Diagonal Park Fencing lots.They give minor park and landmark effects.Also, nearly every lot has some kind of seasonal quality to it, the trees, the bushes, and the flowers.Keep an eye pealed as the time goes by and witness the gardens bloom and the leaves fall from the trees (maintenance cost includes leaf sweeping).

      There are 10 different trees in total:4 PEG style, 4 Porkie style, and 2 Jeronij Style.There is a tree for every city.

      The Road Side Trees:These lots have a grass texture designed to blend in with the grass textures of jeronij's diagonal park fencing and trail park packs.They are simple 1x1 lots with a single seasonal tree in the middle with a little bit of landscaping on the base.They can be placed in parks or on the sides of roadways.They can even be placed on the sides of diagonal roads or streets although the base texture won't match perfectly it will help to smooth the edges a bit in a zoomed out view.

      The Road Side Tree Diagonals:These lots have a half grass half sidewalk texture which is designed to be placed next to a diagonal Avenue.Note that an avenue will only produce a jagged sidewalk when there is enough zoning placed on the avenue.Those of you who use diagonal avenues enough will know what I am talking about.These lots can also be used by themselves to create a diagonal walking path (not transit enabled).The walking path can be used in conjunction with other lots from the Urban Beautification Pack: Vol. 1 and with the Simple Plaza (included in this volume) as well as Jeronij's white Trail parks to create a gorgeous modular park and plaza area which changes colors with every season.

      The Simple Plaza:This 1x1 lot contains some seasonal azaleas to help blend the transition from diagonal path to straight path when using the Diagonal Tree lots to create a custom seasonal park and plaza.

      INSTALLATION
      Very simply unzip the downloaded file and extract the UBP: Vol. 2.The sets are contained in their own sub folders which makes it easy for you to pick and choose which lots to install.Just choose your favorite lots and move them to an organized section of your MyDocuments/SimCity4/Plugins folder.Enjoy!

      Note the UBP:V1 uses Road Side Tree 10 which is included in this Volume 2.

      DEPENDENCIES
      I tried very hard to keep this list short and I believe I was successful (also needed for Volume 1):
      The flowers and most of the gardens in general use Simgoober's Flora Packs located in a Mega pack here: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/15287-bsc-mega-props-sg-vol-01/

      The trees and buildings themselves are from Pegasus' seasonal tree lots here:
      http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/4515-peg-seasonal-woods-v206b/

      Mod Edit: Fixed broken formatting and updated dependency links.
    • Urban Beautification Pack Volume 1
      By soldyne
      URBAN BEAUTIFICATION PACK VOLUME 1:
      Boulevard Plaza Gardens

      This is Version 2 of this volume. This version changes the wealth level of the lots to medium instead of high which should help to make the base texture more like the maxis sidewalk texture. you will need to demolish all lots used from the previous version for this change to take effect. sorry for any inconvienience

      This pack of 20 separate lots was originally intended to be used for my City Journal as boulevard filler, to help decorate that 1x1 space in between two one-way roads.It eventually expanded itself into a pack of lots which can be used almost anywhere in a downtown urban or suburban setting to help fill in those pesky 1x1 areas with beautiful parks and recreation lots.

      Thanks goes out to Simgoober and Pegasus for their absolutely brilliant seasonal props which made these lots the eye candy that they are.

      The UBP: Vol. 1 actually contains three different sets of lots:Continuous, Fancy, and Simple.All lots are 1x1, have a basic Maxis texture designed to blend in (nearly seamlessly) with the default maxis sidewalk texture, and give minor park and landmark effects.Also, nearly every lot has some kind of seasonal quality to it, the trees, the bushes, and the flowers.Keep an eye pealed as the time goes by and witness the gardens bloom.

      The Continuous Set:This is a set of flowers, trees, bushes and shrubs which is designed specifically to create a continuous botanical barrier for use in between or on the sides of road ways.

      The Fancy Set:This is a set of flowers and other urban gardens which can be placed anywhere, in any orientation to give those small empty spots a splash of color.

      The Simple Set:This set is a very simple and Spartan set of lots which has very few props designed to help beautify and area yet at the same time not detract from anything else around it.This set also includes a 1x1 lot with texture only, no props.It may seem simplistic at first, but the clever mayor will see its potential.

      INSTALLATION
      Very simply unzip the downloaded file and extract the UBP: Vol. 1.The sets are contained in their own sub folders which make it easy for you to pick and choose which lots to install.Just choose your favorite lots and move them to an organized section of your MyDocuments/SimCity4/Plugins folder.Enjoy!

      DEPENDENCIES
      I tried very hard to keep this list short and I believe I was successful:

      The flowers and most of the gardens in general use Simgoober's Flora Packs located in a Mega pack here: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/15287-bsc-mega-props-sg-vol-01/

      The trees and buildings themselves are from Pegasus' seasonal tree lots here:
      http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/4515-peg-seasonal-woods-v206b/

      (NOTE:if you use SC4Tool to detect dependencies you may see that some of the lots have extra dependencies like BLS prop pack and Pegasus CSK2 fountain pack.I don’t know why it says those are needed because I took those files out of my plugins folder and my lots work just fine.You can get those things if you like but they really are not needed.)

      STATS
      Every lot in this pack shares the same following stats, which is an average of the maxis small flower garden and small plaza.

      PLOP COST: 60
      BULLDOZE: 10
      MAINTENANCE: 5
      LANDMARK EFFECT: 40/20
      PARK EFFECT: 40/20
      DEMAND CAP RELIEF: 250/250/250

      Mod Edit: Fixed broken formatting and updated dependency links.
    • "SFBT Urban Highway Set" missing from in-game menu
      By sizarieldor
      Basically, I installed SFBT Urban Highway Set and its dependencies, and the lots should appear in the Miscellaneous Transport menu. But when I start the game it's nowhere to be found, zero new icons.

      By FullStrenght
      Hi everyone! I would like to show you my first big city playing Cities skylines after dark: Bosmonde. This city is based on a map of Boston. I am planning to post regular screenshots, and tell you more about the city as this journal grows. For now, enjoy the first picture:

      Off course, any tips and suggestions are very welcome as I am quite new here. Comments are always appreciated 
      Edit: added 2 aerial (night) images of Bosmonde, including the spots where the images were shot for you convenience.
      .

      Edit: Added a new map, thanks to Cimtographer!


      Cheers!
