      Greetings all! I've just returned from an indefinite hiatus from ST after almost a decade of inactivity, and all of a sudden felt the urge to lot. A lot! I've mostly been posting my lot updates in the "Show Us What You're Working On" thread but I figured I should probably lighten the spam over there and create my own thread . Since I've been posting so much stuff recently it's probably a good idea that I start consolidating all of them into one topic.
      PROJECTS


      Welcome to Suburban Office Mania! The core concept of these re-lots focuses on recreating the large sprawling business parks and office complexes that are scattered around suburban North America. Most of these complexes boasts several similar-looking buildings and can occupy several city blocks worth of space, mostly from parking alone. Major influences include several tech centers located around the US, including locations part of Silicon Valley, Irvine, and Denver Tech Center.

      ITS Office Parks
      Here I'll be mostly tackling a lot of Ill Tonkso's old mid-rise office buildings, and converting them for suburban usage either in the form of multi-building complexes or larger lots for the building. Occasionally you might find something less suburban .

      A nice billboard park telling sims to ride mass transit and the bus..
    • By RandyE
      A well-lighted place for the sims to relax, reflect and meet in the inner city.
      This is the kind of park that people go to on their lunch break, poets and lovers go to dream, plans are sketched, and profound ideas are conceived.   There's a memorial in the center just for the purpose of remembering, and gazebos and fountains among the trees.

      This is my third park lot using the vanilla props from SC4.  This park is part of an urban beautification and vitalization project for the inner-city.  
       
      Named after the Parthenon in Athens, an architectural and cultural artifact representing the foundations of modern civilization, and attributed to Athena, the personification of calmness, wisdom, ethical, and civil society.  The park design utilizes the dimensions said to be essential to the Parthenon following the golden rectangle ratio, calculated in SC4 city tiles as 8 (width) by 5 (depth).  The Parthenon building landmark was released as an update to SC4.
      The park is well-lighted with a variety of animations and park-related props including the Zen Rock Garden, Greenhouses, Koi Fish Pond, a Pool, Fountains, Swing Sets, Slides, Refreshment Stand, Gazebo, Billboards, Basketball Courts, and a small Skateboard arena.
      This lot is animation and graphics-intensive, found under the parks menu, but intended as a main feature or central city park, and so should only be plopped once in any city you are building.

      Every once in a while, I build a city with SC4. The city I have now is doing very well, with over 100M and making about 5k per month, though it has been as high as 10-20k.  I will say more on that later.
      When I started building this city, I used the "standard" neighborhood layout of 6x6 squares (technically, I suppose it was actually 8x8, but the outer rim had roads going around it, so the "zonable area"  was 6x6).  Sometimes I would vary this up a little by using a rectangle of say 10x6, and the industrial was in bigger squares, I usually used 10x10 squares since industrial doesn't have to be as close to the road as either residential or commercial.  I would usually also put 1, 2 (1 at opposite corners), or 4 (1 at each corner) city beautification objects like a small park, gazebo, whatever.
      As I was playing, I came up with a new way to make neighborhoods, that is better at making money (see the numbers I cited in the first sentence), seems to generate fewer abandoned buildings than my original method, and I think just looks better.  I will attempt to describe it in text.  I think on these forums is a place where screenshots can be placed, so I might just build an isolated neighborhood, take a screenshot of that and post it there.
      First I build a "neighborhood frame" that is 11x11 suares of zonable area with roads on all sides of it.
      In the center of the zonable area I put a large (3x3) park (park green, flower garden, or plaza), or what I call a "sports complex" (which I will describe momentarily), then I put a road going around it so I have a sort of "roundabout" in the center of the neighborhood, then I connect these inner roads to my outer roads.  As far as I can determine, "city beautification" obects have to have road access to have any effect.
      This leaves me with either 82 or 84 zonable tiles.  I did some experimenting, and the best balance is maintained with using half of those for low density resisential, and the other half for medium density commercial.
      I build roads for a 3x3 grid of these neigborhoods, but in the center grid I put what I call my city services center.  In this i put an elementary school, a high school, a library, a museum, a police station, a jail (which I think is a NIMBY structure, but I put one anyway), and a fire station (though putting so many fire stations really doesn't seem to have that much advantage over having just 1 in the entire city), then I build the neighborhoods in the way I described around this city services center.  I could make more money if I didn't put a library and museum in each sevice center, but I have reason for keeping the education as high as possible.
      My "sports complex" consists of a tennis court, a baketball court, a skateboard park, an open paved area, an open grass area, and a small park, and like the large parks has a total area of 3x3.
      The "sports complex" costs more to build/maintain than the other large parks, but assuming the effects(increase in demand cap) are additive and not governed by some weird formula that is used when they are right next to each other, they have an effect that appears to be approximately proportionate to the amount of money spent.  I didn't do a detailed enough analyses to determine which is the "best investment," but I think there are 2 considerations that are more important than that.
      First, and most importantly, I think they look cool.
      Second, I feel like I am doing more for my sims when I put down a sports complex than one of the prefab parks.  They can pay tennis or basketball, ride their skateboards in a place that is safer than riding it in a parking garage, use the paved area for practicing isolated skills such as dribbling, passing, or their backhand, use the grassy area for practicing their karate katas, or can use the park if they just want to have a picnic and not play any of these sports (and yes, I do know that this is a game and there aren't any real people really doing any real thing).
      Then for the industrial area, I put a "ring" of medium density industrial that is 10 tiles wide around the residential/commercial neighborhoods.
      I keep this industrial area from choking my residential/commercial area with smog by discouraging dirty/manufacturing from even coming in by passing the appropriate ordinances (clean air and power consumption, I believe), raising the taxes on the dirty/manufacturing industries to the most the game will allow, 20% (call that an environmental tax if you want), and by keeping education levels as high as possible.
      I also built cities called "power," "water," and "trash" that supply those services through neighbor deals so I do not have to build NIMBY structures/zones such as power plants or landfills in the city I am building.
      In the current city I am working on, I have gotten rid of all but 1 of the dirty/manufacturing industrial plants, or at least I assume it is 1 each from the data gathered from the jobs graph and the chart showing the tax revenue from those industries.
      This neighborhood design has worked so well I went back to my original 6x6 neighborhoods, adapted my design for smaller squares, and am remaking those neighborhoods as well.
      When I complete this city, I will perhaps move on to a new city and see how well this neighborhood design works in building a city from scratch.
