About This File

Hey all :)

 

This mod adds a new building to the game; a commercial parking lot! When Sims go to work or go shopping, they can use this parking lot to park their cars or motorcycles! This new parking lot can also function as a decoration when you are designing your cities.

 

This new parking lot CAN be bulldozed. There should be no problem with that.

 

In order to use this building, you need Project Akar (can be downloaded here: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/29715-project-akar-ui-enhancement/) because the new parking lot is found under Akar's Custom Content menu.

 

A video will be posted here soon for this new parking lot.

 

- Modifying files is still experimental and might lead to city rollbacks
- There is no official statement from Maxis nor EA about using mods, so use at your own risk
- For more information on EA modding policy: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9729407.page

How to install:

 

- Unzip the file.

- Install the .package file into your SimCityData folder.

 

Special thanks to:

 

- Danny50205: For helping me fix an issue where the parking lot would be too far away from the road when plopped.

- Xoxide: For looking at the file and assisting me.

- Yayie: For looking at the file and assisting me.

 

I used oppie's SimCityPak program to create this mod/building. Go here to download it: http://simcitypak.codeplex.com/releases/view/122600

 

Enjoy! More mods and buildings are coming!

It doesn't work in my game ... I can plop it anywhere but when I do that, the parking doesn't demolish the building that was there before, also i can't bulldoze the parking... I don't know if I did something wrong ?

Does this help to relieve traffic overall? I mean its just annoying to see all these cars piling up to go to a commercial building.

    • Thx for the Advice mgb, but i have all the Stuff installed.   But i get Brown Boxes with Peg Streams, below a Pic with and without Free Waters installed    
    • To everyone with the brown boxes issue, you've clearly completely misunderstood the point of this "patch". It does NOT include any water/pond/streams, it simply adjusts the properties of existing mods, such that more space for MMPs is provided. As such, if you failed to read the instructions and don't have the original mods the patch is designed for, it simply won't work. Those files are not technically dependencies, because this file is totally pointless if you don't have such content. Indeed there are 3 lots included in the package, but again these are not designed to work stand-alone without the relevant PEG content being in your plugins folder either.
    • Everyone plays the game differently, so whilst that low value might work fine for your style of play, when releasing mods it's best to support the widest range of setups possible. Example 1:
      So imagine a player with a huge city with maybe millions of sims. Their Bus routes and Subway routes are going to have very high capacities. In such a scenario, not only will lower figures not cut it, but they can break the game. Because if just one stop in the system reaches over 4x the capacity or thereabouts, the network itself will stop working. This is a game bug in essence. Example 2:
      Now let's imagine another player with a small town of 10k residents, say 1k sims use your bus stop. That number would actually be very high for a small town, so clearly a 3k capacity is more than sufficient here, because up to 12k sims could use the stop before any problems occured, and there aren't 12k sims living there. Although bear in mind sims commute, so theoretically you can have more use a stop than the population of a tile. So with a low capacity bus stop, in Example 1 we could end up with very big problems quite easily. But in Example 2 it's unlikely. But, if we give the stop a high capacity, both examples would have little chance of problems. You might think though, "but I don't need this extra capacity" or "it feels like cheating". Well it's really not, because having a super-high capacity won't make more sims use the stop. It just prevents a rather nasty bug from occurring. As such, I would recommended updating the capacities in-line with the previously linked article. But it's not an "urgent fix" or something you need to feel bad about. Just a sensible update to prevent potential problems for users.
