About This File

Hello everyone,

 

Over time I have received several requests to release some of the lots I created for use in my City Journal. 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 Tokukai.

 

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

 

Note: These lots may look better with a grey concrete sidewalk mod, but that is not required.

 

If you downloaded this file before 3:40 EDT November 20th there is a new version that corrects the menu icon glitch.

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.

Disclaimer

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.

      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

      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.
      Available languages: English, German (both Readme and file; the game will choose the language on its own)

      Short Description:
      There are some plaza plugins out there on the STEX, even a few modular ones, but with this set, I'm aiming at creating a fully comprehensive modular system of plazas which
      have a variety of different functions, are easy to combine, and allow adjustment of textures. This plugin contains a good number of modular lots that will allow you to create your custom plaza, sidewalk, or seawall. Fountains, ponds, benches, seawalls, market stalls, trees – nearly everything is available, I’ll leave it to your experimenting pleasure to find out. Most of them are purely decorational (while having park and landmark effect), only the market stalls will yield a bit money. All lots have been designed in a way that they are rather simple, thereby being able to be combined with each other easily. All lots can be found in the park menu, just below the default Maxis parks.
      By default, all lots will use the standard Maxis white pavement texture, however, I’ve included some texture override files that will allow you to customize this plugin in a way that all lots will change their textures. Mainly included are textures fitting with the PedMall puzzle pieces from the NAM, but since I’ve seen many users using plugins that override the PedMall textures, I’ve also included a few extra overrides.
      Note: There has been a last-minute change to this plugin that isn't reflected in the screenshots above: I had to remove all the people lurking around on the lots because their immense amount looked horrible, and I couldn't find a way to randomize their appearance.
      Please make sure to read the included readme carefully, since you can't just install this plugin and play - due to the texture overrides, you need to customize it first.
      Available languages: English, German
       
      Dependencies:
      Please refer to the Readme for information about what the dependencies do. Unfortunately, this time you get a good load of dependencies, fortunately, however, most of them are candidates I'm using frequently, anyway, or just dependency packages that do nothing except adding props/textures and won't flood you with a lot of lots that will fill your menu quickly. Exception: I've had to use one file from the Historic Harbor plugin, which comes with many lots. You only need one file from there (see below).

      Optional but helpful:
      The following dependencies are required for some of the texture overrides, but the base MPS plugin will entirely work without them:
      BSC Textures Vol01: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90 BSC Textures Vol02: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=638 Vortexture 1 - Base Set: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3211  
      Contained Files:
      MPS Core Files.dat (mandatory): Contains all lots for the Modular Plaza System, along with their descriptions and icons. MPS Textures.dat (mandatory): Contains a few overlay textures that have been created specifically for the MPS. Seawall Connection Lots.dat (optional): 4 lots that can be used on slopes to connect ground traffic routes to the overpass puzzle pieces from the NAM and thereby blending them in with the seawall system you get with this download. You can, of course, as well do this with the NAM’s default hillside transition pieces, but they won’t fit into the seawalls, visually. z_(Name).dat (all optional): A total of 10 additional files that you can choose form that will override your existing MPS lots to give them different base textures. Keep only one of them, or just remove them all if you want to play with the base Maxis white pavement texture (see installation instructions below).  
      Installation:
      Please move or copy all existing files (except the Readme files) into the Plugins folder of your edition of SimCity 4. After doing so, please choose one texture override. These texture overrides are located one each in all files starting with z_. To apply one, remove all other texture override. To play with the default Maxis White Pavement, remove all texture overrides. You may want to look into the folder “Screenshots Texture Overrides“ to find out how they will look in-game. You can at any time switch to another texture system by replacing the existing texture override file with another one, in-game, the textures will adapt automatically.
      To uninstall this plugin, please bulldoze all MPS lots in your cities and then remove all MPS files from your Plugins folder.
       
      Compatibility:
      This plugin is only compatible with SimCity 4: Rush Hour or SimCity 4 Deluxe.

      So I downloaded a handful of Japanese and some Generic Asian styled stuff from here and from other places, but nothing seems to be growing.
      I tried a bunch of stuff from a guy named Moonlight but only their 1x2 size houses and 3x3 housing lots grow and only the gas station.
      I've tried removing every other mod in plug in folder other then the asian lots and the maxis lot blocker, but nothing seems to work. If I remove the block maxis lots mod, then all of the maxis stuff builds and none of the asian stuff. I even removed Network Addon Mod and CAM to see if they where conflicting but that didnt help either.
      I've made sure they had power, water, and provided waste management. I've also tried all kinds of zone sizes from 1x1 to 4x4 and nothing grows. I've basically done everything one would need to make sure that a town grows.
      I dunno what else to add here to help as this is the first time I've run into an issue of having lots not grow in game. The only other thing I can think of is that either my setup can't handle Japanese/Asian mods with Asian characters in the names of stuff, or that it doesnt like my North American version of SimCity 4.

           Perfect for any city in the midst of decay!
       
       
       
      Included in this download are two lots big and small; the top right and left.
      respectively. Both precincts, regardless of size, have the ability to dispatch
      five squad cars. Furthermore, they have a prisoner capacity of 70 inmates.
      This is slightly higher than the value of the game's "vanilla" stations, for
      this is simply a larger building. In addition to this download, two dependencies
      are requried: 
       
       This is my first actual building besides The Camberton. So please, do enjoy, even if it isn't the
      best building around. Merely a fun little project of mine to fill a tiny gap.

      After a good couple weeks of teasing, I'm finally ready to release three plazas to the public. Using a combination of multiple BATs from various STEX users, these first three shopping centers ought to keep those commercial districts going. Long live brick and mortar!  
      Included in this download are three lots, as well as a few attached props needed for the plazas to work. A big thanks goes to @kingofsimcity for his assistance for the prop files. I wouldn't have been able to make these shopping centers without him.
      Corbin Plaza is a 15x12 lot. Kmart Plaza is a 7x12 lot Safeway Plaza is a 11x6 lot
