@rolling zone is a part of the Lot Engine which we have no access to.. We have figured out many ways to BEND rules but breaking them entirely is a different story

 

 

The trick to most PATHS is making them able to just be used outside the surface = 0 area which in this case = 1

 

Other things require a lot more creativity and some greater development like this project and some others.

 

Some however like the regional elevated are taking on a much different complexity to complete and time however those are still all working with the values we have access to not the ones which are hard coded or locked away in the master files.

 

Ali and Julia continue to work on many projects with MANY people like max with his new Double Decker Roads to implement new ideas concepts and meet a  higher quality standard as a group which I'm very pleased and even still amazed with how well everyone is doing.

 

All of them are working extremely hard to continue what was started just 1.5 months ago and this is just the beginning.

Well I can plop them, perhaps there's a mod that cause the issue.

You might want to narrow it down the problem, as far as Im concern, all my mods are working, as well as few from other members.

 

Actually, both Maglev stations is outside 2k "North". I just wanted to show the lines.

Seems that didn't the trick... Removed the 2 files but didn't work for me.  After that i removed everything and placed your file + 3k boudery mod and akars road set so i can place roads outside the orginal borders. Still cant place it :(

Haha, I thought that after regional subways, that the Maglevs themselves wouldn't take too long after. Thanks so much. :)

One question, plopping Maglev Stations in the 2k boundary deletes the adjacent ploppable RCI buildings. On the other hand, there where there are Maglev Stations, no RCI ploppables can be plopped. Do you think that that can be worked around? Thanks.

Btw i dont get any snappoints outside the orginal boundry on the roads. cant neither place bus stops tram stops etc

 

Found the issue, its Orion. You can place public transports on another plot but not on the other half. Im on Veridian Woods - Matisse Plains, I can plop them.

it does not work with UDoN as well since the elevated method that we have are all based on Maglev's. Try avoid having both things get cross connected with each other.

 

Works just fine with UDoN :) or are you referring to the Bi-Level-Streets? (I get that they are based on Maglev due) :) got confused now. So to be ûber clear,

 

Maglev region works well with UDoN but do not work with B.L.S. cause it makes it impossible to delete the maglev tracks, witch is ofc teh B.L.S. fault. But thought both of you should know so you can work 2gether for a fix my löves :thumb:

 

Hold on! the UDoN mod is/was not even loaded and cant get it to load now no matter what it seems huh???

 

You guys have removed UDoN from AkarRoadSet, the latest working is "AkarRoadsSet_1.0.5 (14th Aug 2014)"

      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

      I've been noticing for a while that every time that any of my cities exceeds maybe 400k citizens, the usage in public transportation significantly drops (for example, at some point I have 10k users in the subway system and then in goes down to less than 5k). Does anybody know why is that? I've been trying to encourage the use of public transport by increasing the budget to 150% and setting the free public transport policy for the whole town, but it won't help. I always try to design a multi-modal public transportation scheme, and it works really well (increasing number of users, reduced traffic congestion, etc), but then this happens. I have also noticed that traffic congestion is very well controlled, even with the low public transport usage. I've been looking for an answer for this like crazy, but it seems that anybody in the internet ever has had this issue before, and it's driving me nuts.

      Hi all!
      I am wondering if anyone can help me, I have two areas that are causing me troubles. I don't even know if what I want to do is possible. I'm trying to connect EL over Road 4 to EL over road (Maxis regular) crossing over an intersection, but it seems to elude me.

      What am I missing? I have the current NAM, did not choose "alternate" for EL and do have the puzzle piece that is supposed to connect EL over road to either EL over Rd4 or Ave, but the EL doesn't line up on that piece with the EL over Rd4, so I'm a bit lost. I have LHD, if that makes any difference...
      Also, in the second troublesome area, does anyone know how to connect EL over road, through at T intersection to just plain EL? I cannot get the puzzle piece to connect to the regular EL.

      If the two pictured configurations I have set up at the present are impossible, does anyone have any suggestions as to a better method or configuration I might try instead?
      Either way, thanks in advance!

      So, I saw this picture (below) in der Nieuwezee Nieuws, and it inspired me to write about public transport in our town.



      Don't worry, nobody was badly hurt - and the buses here usually run without crashing into bus-shelters!

      So, you know that Nieuwezee always had the one old tram-line, running from the Old Town to the Peninsula... then extended to the Harbour in the 60's/70's. And when they built the Oosterpolder, a second tram-line was extended to cover that district. The second line saw brand-new trams introduced to the city. Here's a crowd of spectators trying to board Tram 2 at the Oosterpolderplein on the first day of service:



      Our new trams are much more comfortable and spacious than the old ones from the 1960's. I'm not sure I like the new red-and-blue colour scheme, though. I think it's supposed to represent the colours of the Dutch flag, or something...



      There's no denying it though, they're better than our old yellow trams. They were noisy, and draughty... :/




      So that's Nieuwezee's trams. Well, we also have a number of bus lines!

      Some of these are old, traditional routes that have stayed the same since the early 20th century. But the latest routes, have only been added since the Oosterpolder development and the construction of the Biotech Campus across the river:



      Here's the new campus, and you can see four types of Nieuwezee public transport in one shot.

      At the top of the image, a Regiorunner 'Verm' double-decker train is heading towards the station in the Old Town.

      Near the centre, you can see one of the University's yellow mini-buses parked outside the Student Union building...
      The campus provides its own private 'on demand' transport for students and staff.

      To the left, you can see a tram approaching the Campus tram stop, which links to Tram Line 1 via a short spur (approx. 750m).

      And to the top right, you can see a 'bendy bus' pulling away from the stop at Westerhuizen Rotonde. A tree-lined walkway links the bus-stop to the campus.

      If you're curious, here's a route map which shows how everything hangs together in Nieuwezee:



      And if that wasn't exciting enough (!), look at this:



      It's one of our brand-new bi-articulated trolley-buses! The council have been electrifying the bus routes between the Old Town and Oosterpolder, now routes 10 and 11 are (mostly!) run by trolley-buses. They're almost like trams without the tracks. "So why are there tram-tracks in this picture?" you may ask! Well, this is the corner of the Poldergracht where the no.11 bus turns across Tram-line 1. See it on the map?

      All-in-all I'd say that public transport runs very well in Nieuwezee; with all these modern trams and buses it's better than it ever was, and we have excellent connection to nearby cities like Amsterdam and Hoorn. But now the authorities want to take things 'to the next level'. Oosterpolder has brought new wealth to Nieuwezee, and the Bio-tech Campus is encouraging expansion towards the South-west of town. As a result, the regional government is seriously considering changing our town's status into a City, and real money may be thrown at stages 4-5 of our Strategic Development Plan. This would mean bringing High Speed Rail to the city, and zoning for even more development in future. So, it looks like Nieuwezee's adventures in public transport are only beginning!

    • Very nice huzman! Thanks for the upload!
    • I remember this one :-) It's a true classic in the SC3000 community.
