Anyone else have the problem of endless busses streaming out of diagonal streets? I don't have any bus stops anywhere near when this happens. My bus traffic graph also shows 0.
For a while I thought this was related to specific lots (NAM curve fillers, Gridbusters etc), but examining for exemplars revealed nada. The common thread seems to be diagonal streets in all cases. However I can also reproduce it easily by plopping PEG Rural Alleys next to streets.
Please see attached. I am using NAM 35 and CAM 2.1.
(1) Do I need to place a parking garage near terminal bus stops?
(2) How do I know what my parking garage is doing?
(3) How do I know what my buses are doing in terms of performance?
What does the last one above mean?
618 car trips, 63 bus trips, and 41 truck trips in a 24 hour window?
Skylines will tell me how full my buses are with 30 being the number of seats. Also, it will tell me car trips saved.
Contains 20 lots meant to be placed roadside to add realistic (and HD) parking to your cities. Both LHD and RHD are supported.
It's pretty obvious, but you should only install one set based on your current driving side. If you don't, the exemplars will conflict and you will end up with LHD lots.
Special thanks go to @vortext and @kingofsimcity for allowing me to use their amazing textures, and to @rsc204 for the acronym inspiration.

Great to see your name back on the STEX once more.
A true legend of the SC4 content scene. Even if just for this one-off to share yet another splendid model with the community. All these years later, we can't get enough of those grungy roof textures.
Wow it looks so good!! Regarding the .lot and .desc files, I'm sure some of the great lotters and modders will make this model very useful.
It's wonderful to see you around uploading a file again, can we expect more?
thank you this is a really well designed mall and I had a lot of fun going back to the early days of the STEX to get all the dependencies interesting to see how these had thousands of downloads in the "old days" you made good choices from different Batters
Nice idea. Should anyone have preferences or favourite buildings they recall, it would certainly help narrow down the total. Especially with the filter list on the Wayback, the accompanying preview images are there at least to give some visual indication for anyone searching. If there really are 10,000 buildings, I suppose it's not even worth uploading 10% of them given the likely inconsistencies with quality.
It may be worth setting up some kind of "I would like ..." topic .... people can go thru the old exchange and point out to Cori the ones that should be retrieved ... it should end up a more manageable list
That could be arranged. But since these are legacy files, I don't think it matters too much either way since credit would be given.
If Cori would like to continue uploading these (as intended following Dirk's approval), it may be nice for her to receive the occasional Rep as a by-product reward for retrieving, packaging and uploading them here. With hundreds if not thousands of them, it'd require a mammoth effort after all.
(Should the quality of content resemble anything to the old SC4 EA exchange, I'm guessing it's not worth restoring all of them.)
The appropriate words escape me - this is freaking brilliant!!!
You've done some great stuff over the years Rivit (particularly from an Australian bias), but this tool is, well, exemplary. I've been away for some years and have missed a lot, but this one has been a significant highlight as I try to wrangle my old plugin folder into line (which, prior to running this, I thought was in pretty good shape...)
