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.

      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

      Convention Center, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Though fictional, this building is inspired by some of the modern architecture of China which shows an amazing combination of self-assuredness, ebullience and seemingly gravity-defying engineering.
      Sitting on a 6x6 lot, this is a large building with the lower three floors alone providing almost 8,000m2 of floor space per floor. At its highest point, the building is 8 stories tall.
      There is also a combination of exhibition halls (including high-clearance spaces), conference rooms, cafeterias and indoor/outdoor spaces. The entire building is arranged around a pleasant, treed central courtyard
      There are very few Convention Center buildings available for SC4, and even fewer that are actually *modded* as a Convention Center. This building provides some much-needed competition in that space. 
      This BAT functions as a reward-lot and Convention Center in game. 
      In addition to providing your sims with 154 highly desirable civic jobs, it will massively help alleviate the commercial demand caps that can hinder city development by giving an additional CAP relief of 270,000 CO§§ and 270,000 CO§§§ jobs in the region. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.

      * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
      * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
      * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
      * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame Convention Center (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis Convention Center reward.

      ---------------------------------------

      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

      This download contains TWO file types in two separate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mods) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
      You must choose only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. 
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) 
      ---------------------------------------
      DEPENDENCIES:
      This lot does not require external dependencies.

      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      This building deliberately does not come with parking textures, so that you can use your own parking lots adjacent to the lot, thus making it useful in both urban and suburban settings. If you wish to add parking textures, please do so using the lot editor.

      ---------------------------------------
      To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.
      Thanks.

    • Thanks, T Wrecks...rewards are such a giant pain to make! So I usually try and put something daft in to try and compensate...this is my nod to the g20 . As far as I know, the OG doesn't do anything, but there is an ATR file in sim city1. dat  (I think it's 0x49a59e37 - 0x01601900), but it might have been deemed a bit too graphic, or it could just have been like the other dozen or so atr files that aren't used in anything....   Oh, and btw, citybuilder234, the building looks like whatever I tell you it looks like.....
    • It doesn't even look like a convention center. Looks like a building at a community college or a state university.
    • Wow, what a fantastic building! I like the intricate shapes of this one, and the many different areas. There are so many details to take in that it really takes a while to grasp the entire structure. I also agree that there's not much going in in terms of conference centres, so this really fills a gap. Kudos for all the reward modding too - I know that part is pretty tedious und ungratifying work (unless you're some sick masochist ). What I also like is how well the lot complements the building, and it acomplishes that with so few and so simple means. Just a few default overlays and props, and we have a lot that leaves nothing to be desired. The one tiny suggestion I have is that all your recent buildings have had their names (and, in cases like this one, also their function) baked into the model. This is not bad generally because it allows a better visual appearance, but sometimes it limits flexibility a bit. The building in question could totally double as a modern city college, for example, or maybe even as a university (not all modern universities are sitting on a lush campus, after all!), but then there's the "Convention Center" lettering in front. I guess it can be covered with cleverly placed flora props... Fun fact: I never knew that there was an Occupant Group "burning dude maker" - what the...???
