About This File

Arts Centre Melbourne, Australia

The Arts Centre Melbourne is a performing arts centre consisting of a complex of theatres and concert halls in the Melbourne Arts Precinct, located in the central Melbourne suburb of Southbank. It was designed by architect Sir Roy Grounds.

The Spire
The new spire was completed in 1996, and reaches 162 metres. The spire is illuminated with some 6,600 metres (21,653 feet) of optic fibre tubing, 150 metres (492 feet) of neon tubing on the mast and 14,000 incandescent lamps on the spire's skirt.

Hamer Hall
Hamer Hall is a 2,661 seat concert hall – the largest venue in the Arts Centre complex, used for orchestra and contemporary music performances. It was opened in 1982 and was later renamed Hamer Hall in honour of Sir Rupert Hamer (the 39th Premier of Victoria) shortly after his death in 2004

This is my 11th BAT.

The Arts Centre Spire & Hamer Hall occupies a tile space of 16x6. It is an Opera House, and costs §68,000 to build with a monthly cost §330. Opera Houses provide an educational boost to older Sims.

Also included in the download are:
1) Separate Hamer Hall filler-lot. Hamer Hall is also an opera house, but has no associated costs, all costs are attached to the main lot. This is optional, place drectly under the Hamer Hall prop. If you don't want it, just delete the folder "Hamer Hall".
2) A small power generator. For some reason the BAT doesn't light easily with the standard city electrical grid. To get it to light up it may need its own generator, placed directly next to the Spire/Hamer Hall lot (hide it under the prop). Its small so will not be noticeable in-game. It outputs 6000 power but does not cost anything extra. If you find you don't need it, just delete the folder: "Power Generator".
3) Separate Optional Download: City Road Underpass (tunnel entrance). Only included for anyone that wants to build a road tunnel under the Arts Cente Complex, as in real life. In-game, there are no costs and its not lit.

The Arts Centre Melbourne comes in four colours (Blue, Red, Green & Purple), all four colours are available in Darknite and Maxis night versions.
 

Important: only download and install one choice of colour.

Once I work out how, I plan to release a multi-colour changing version as well.

There are no Prop dependencies, although the Dark Nite version requires SimFox_Day_n_Nite_Modd.

Instructions:
Download ONLY one choice of colour in the xx_DN zip file for Darknite version, or xx_MN for Maxis night versions (not both)

      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

      Map of Australia.
      Zip contains greyscale, SC4M and config file. All large cities.. Lots of them.

      Welcome to Hobart, a city of about 200k (in real life) on Tasmania Island, Australia. The River Derwent cuts through the center of the map leaving plenty of building space on either side and lots of opportunities for bridges and tunnels. 
      This map should prove fairly easy to build on, with flat, fertile expanses leading to riverside beach heads, some gentle and some not-so-gentle slopes leading into the mountains rich with ore. Add to that a few spots for oil production and 145,000 trees for forestry, and you'll have industry opportunities galore. Of course, all transport types are connected. 
      I experimented with terrain textures again, and if you like the textures and colors in the map above, here's what you'll need: 
      Terrain Texture Replacer mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=416966387&searchtext=terrain+texture 
      Texture Set: http://imgur.com/a/krTtf 
      Photoreal LUT: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=408932281 

      Cheers!

      Let's play on this map of Australia!  Not as big as the real country, but still a fun replica for Cities Skylines.
      There is fertile land, oil and some ore placed around the map. I think it's fun to try making smaller cities around the map, but choose the way you want to play it.
      To be able to play the whole map, you need to have the All Slots unlocked mod .
      Hope everyone likes the map!
      Cheers

      Hi All,
       
      Long time lurker, first time poster.  I've been playing SC4 for a decade and I've recently had a problem with the Opera House.  If I try to bulldoze it, the game crashes.  It's really annoying as I have been "renovating" my cities.  I can't obliterate, I can't demolish, nothing.  If I even think of touching the Opera House, the game crashes.  
       
      Any ideas?
       
      Thanks so much in advance.

      Australian Speed Limit Signs - Right Hand Drive
      These are speed limit signs that are typically found in Australia. They're a white sign, with a red circle on it containing the speed limit in kilometres per hour. In this sign pack I have included:
      40km/h 50km/h Ahead 50km/h 60km/h Ahead 60km/h 70km/h Ahead 70km/h 80km/h 90km/h 100km/h 110km/h 130km/h The speed limit ahead signs are based off those formerly found in New South Wales.
       
      Installation Instructions
      Unzip the file and place the unzipped files inside your SimCity 4 Plugins folder.
       
      You will find these signs in your Parks menu.
       
      This lot has no dependencies.

    • @kellydale2003 As I said in the review it's avesome stuff, I would have only one request. Could you next time make a notice on the description, that the growable version is only compatible with CAM by default...  I was wondering why I haven't seen growing your stuffs in my cities (f.e. Linda Swampy), and took an other look to the lot files I see, that some of them is CAMified, and I don't play with CAM... Linda Swampy is a stage 10 I-Ht... So that would be worth a mention I guess for those who doesn't use the CAM as well... Thanks in advance!  - Tyberius
    • Having Trouble with this plugin. I downloaded this and all the dependencies. All I see is parking lot and cars. no Building. What do u think might be causing this?
    • This strategy is really commendable. There have been so many buildings that were 95% ready and had already reached a quality level that left most users with their lower jaw on the desk, and yet they got lost ultimately and never made it to any download section, even though of all people with an interest in that BAT, literally every single person other than the creator would gladly have downloaded it in its current state. You chose to go the other route, and - lo and behold! - people love the building, download it, and are happy. Thank you so much for contributing a superb BAT to the STEX rather than another post to one of the most depressive threads on Simtropolis!
    • It's a landmark in SC4, too, but the scale of Maxis' version is totally off, and the lot is strange as well. Therefore, a custom version is very welcome. I recently compared old and new version side by side, and the progress you have made since then is impressive! Smoother modeling (the inward curves used to look a tad bumpy), better windows, better roof textures and roof junk, better night lights... it's an improvement in all respects!
    • Any way to get this to work on a mac?
