About This File

Are you wanting to give your cities and regions a nice little bit of "character"? Perhaps the whole gray asphalt thing isn't working for you... Well have I got a deal for you, a nice little treat with not one, not two, but FOUR new road textures to satisfy your fantasy craving!

 

This pack contains four road textures sets that not only reskin the normal roads, but also even FUTURIZE with the futuristic buildings! No more dealing with that generic futuristic road that glows... Now you can have your pick from these four road packs:

 

Brick Roads - "Draconic"

Do your best to recreate a city street of another era with this set of brick roads and sidewalks. Futurize it for some nice glowing lines and racing streaks! Great for the older parts of town and more laid back cities.

 

Concrete Roads - "Jazz Age"

This dark road is lined with flagstones at the sides to give it a very flashy look, a look that carries over well even in futurization. Give this road to your casino towns and New York City inspired cities who didn't want to get out of the roaring 20s.

 

Salvaged Roads - "Orcish"

Start off with smoothed dirt and wood held down with metal railing to get your sims thinking they're walking in a completely different realm, but then start futurizing and watch as the world becomes encased in steel and grime that could put even the Horde to the shame. Ideal for either simple towns in the middle of nowhere or for futurizing goons of OmegaCo and Dystopian dispositions. For that extra nerdy flavor, use in the desert regions too!

 

Temple Roads - "Pandaren"

Put your sims on the roads of [an American Artist's] interpretation of the Orient. Start with the basic white-washed marble and pressed dirt, or switch to a jade-colored filler stone with jewel lights if you like to futurize. Good for tourist towns, jungle retreats, and creating your animesque town in SimNation.

 

All roads are compatible with the UDoN mod by Xoxide, feature their own bump-maps and futurizing "Tron-Line" lights, and should have no problem working online or offline along with other mods.

 

Again, these roads are aimed at adding a FANTASY and STYLISTIC appeal to your cities as opposed to a REALISTIC appeal. There are some other very good modders who have created some very nice real-world roads... But if there are problems with texturing issues, game crashes, and the like, let me know because I don't want all this work to be fruitless.

 

*NOTE: I don't know why I called it "Road Pack 1", given that the files are fairly small enough that I could probably squeeze in four more road packs. Either way, I hope you have been enjoying these roads and are eagerly awaiting more mods from me in the near future for this game. Granted, this may not be as big of an under-taking as Project Orion, but having more building sets and roads to chose from is a welcome plus to this game.

    • Thought you might know it, but it was worth a shot. Ah yes, those real-estate photos - I had, in fact, seen an article about that blog somewhere and nearly forgotten about it afterwards, but then my sister gave me a tear-off calendar for Christmas: every day a horrible picture and a great one-liner. I love that stuff.
    • @nycsc4 ... This file should only include the texture and lot files - due to copyright reasons I have to link to anything that is not mine (the stadium in this case). I'm not sure what you mean by the "invisible KS file." On the OneDrive, there is a button for KS_AllianzArena 15x12 which once downloaded, will give a *.7z file. If you're using the default windows extractor, it may be a problem (not sure if it can handle 7zip files or not), but something like winrar should unzip it just fine. The .desc and .model files you need will be right there. Let me know if that's not working for you.
    • Hi there, quick question.  I just downloaded this stadium but it doesn't seem to work.  I am missing the "a" and "b" files.  The main download here only includes the texture and lot files.  The one drive only has the invisible "KS" file.  Let me know if you can help.   Thanks.
    • @thirstydeer - welcome to the world of custom content There are 4 tilesets in the game (the game has to be either "SC4 Deluxe" or "SC4" + "Rush Hour" expansion pack, the very basic game won't allow custom content to be used) which you can use to control what types of buildings are grown. The four tilesets are: Houston/New York/Chicago and Euro. If you don't change these settings, as a default, all tilesets are on, and the game builds from one tileset only every 5 game years. By selecting only the Euro tileset, you will give these buildings the greatest chance to grow . There is a little bit of further discussion here: Additionally, to get a 6x6 zone easily in the game, press and hold the CTRL key while zoning the commercial zone to count out a square 6 tiles each side.
    • What exactly do you mean by this: "These are all offered as growable 6x6, stage 1, medium wealth, Commercial Services on the EURO Tileset only."  I'm a pretty basic user of the game and am just starting to dabble with the myriad of custom content available on this site so I want to make sure it'll work for me before I download it.  It truly looks great!
