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!

Nice building, CapTon. The trees look very nice. :D

How does it actually work, though? Is it like a park and ride?

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.

      While I did technically already upload three of the lots found in this pack, I decided to split it from the pharmacy pack (which is where those three lots were found) since I found a few additional buildings that can qualify as banks. Hence this is the reason why there is now a bank and a pharmacy pack.
      5 of the 7 lots will require lotplop to gain access to them. DK1's Bank of America and SavagePhoenix's Illium National Bank will show in the landmark menu.
      2x3 lots:
      Annuity Bank Hoard Investments 3x3 lots:
      Bank and Trust Credit Union The above 4 lots are dependent on a LEX download which is found here: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=525
      2x4 lots:
      3x4 lots:
      Other Dependencies:

      These relot files (which is a combination of the pharmacy relots together in one download) have been updated and packed together for your convenience into a zipped folder. The previous files have been removed because of this.
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. In the case that you would only like to download one of my relots, simply delete all the ones you don't want from the download folder.
      If you would like to clear up space in both your landmark menu in game and in your plugin files, you can delete the original lot file.
      To plop the Eckerd, you will need to use the lotplop cheat.
      Walgreens is a 4x4 lot CVS is a 4x4 lot Eckerd is a 3x4 lot Rite Aid is a 3x4 lot Eckerd's files can be found here: (only need the Eckerd related files)

      These relot are new Relots by Evan. Burger King made By @baco and the Hardee's is made by B62. One of the Burger King is with the Prop A Lot Relot. For the Hardee's it is a growable, but if you use SimCity 4 Extra Cheat Plugin you can prop it when every you want. Under Buildingplop, B62FF-CS$ Hardee's v1.1, Relot by Evan Hardee's.  Hope you Enjoy. 
       
      You will need these Installed before download. 
      http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=746
       
      This is optional only if you wanna plop the Hardee's lot.

    • If anything it's possible for a river with lots of flow to widen abruptly when the channel shape shifts from deep and narrow to wide and shallow.
    • @mattb325 Yes, I enjoy doing this on my days off. I will have a Kmart, Walmart, and Lowes foods tomorrow.
    • I do plan on doing more to these lots, I'm am looking for some tree and plants props, I did place car props but that don't seem to come up maybe try redoing. I also plan on do more gat station by Deadwood. And a little more of B62. 
    • Haha! Thanks @T Wrecks - I have visited that site plenty of times before, it is very good for a laugh, but had forgotten about it for a while. There's also this one which shows just the opposite end of the hell-spectrum: http://terriblerealestateagentphotos.com/
    • It's good to have yo on board as a lotter, and even better to see old models aren't that forsaken after all. For the fist one (which I like best model-wise), the base texture is not ideal IMO, however. It blurs with the roof of the shop building, makes it hard to tell what's going on on the lot, and it also contrasts very strongly with the modeled concrete around the petrol pumps. I think a very light grey would complement the buildings a bit better. The second one is similar, plus I think it the lot may be somewhat big for the building. All of the lots could use some more props - maybe a fence around the back, some parked cars, the odd oil drum here or there, maybe some crates and/or a dumpster behind the building, or a trashcan somewhere... deadwoods has made some really neat servo station props for his "Deadwoods Petrol" series that you could also use to great effect. As it stands, the lots look kinda barren and deserted. Since you're using SHK's textures & props anyway, you could also try to get some more mileage out of them; perhaps by putting some defined parking spots near the shop building. But most importantly, have fun and keep 'em coming!
