About This File

Well After Sometime they are out "Plopable Great works" Please Read below before downloading  

 

the Fully built Great works that just need plopping

 

 

Some Notes 

 

There is a small thing about them They are NOT bulldozable 

 

and they will not be at a cost 

 

let me explain

 

Great Works have a few files one for each stage of building and one for scripting(Simulation) and then property data. 

now Due to that there is a high risk of editing the scripting part by adding cost and making them bulldoze, due to editing the main file and not a copy of it so that is the reason

 

and then the ploppable great works will not show regional wise they are for one city and that is all

 

from there they are a tricky plop  so play around a little bit there 

 

However this is NOT a Cheat mod if i can find a way to add cost with out harming the simulation part i will and update them

Yea this is a great idea! I have no clue how modding in this game works, but would it be possible to add new great works? And if that's not possible, would it be possible to just reskin one to make it look like something else?

I have yet to try this mod out but from the description this essentially allows you to plop all 4 different greatworks functioning at once around one region with 3-4 cities? Wow if so. Of course the greatworks will not show if in another region but that is how the game has always been.

 

and then the ploppable great works will not show regional wise they are for one city and that is all

uhm yes you can plop all 4 if you want however i would recommend plopping 1 at a time to your workers and so on can be focused on one thing at a a time.

No not possible due to the game rules being one thing we can make a new airport and arcology and anything as a replacement with the same rules, but thats it 

 

and thank you to you all :)

Danny50205: Thanks for the tip on building them 1 at a time.

 

Regaurding making a new greatwork. Can this be done with the existing Solar Farm greatwork? I find it really useless since 1 fusion power plant or even 1 nuke plant with mods will give you suffient power plus excess so it's not really needed. I'd like to see this greatwork replaced with something better if a mod like that was going to be done that is. But I guess I would not call the Solar farm greatwork useless because this replaces fusion and other types of power in turn so it's a trade off I guess.

 

You can currently import new buildings using project akar's custom content tab but these are new buildings and landmarks, not greatworks. So all types of new custom buildings are now possible though.

I found that when I put three Great Works in one city the first one plopped, the Airport, gained it's workers and power, so I got my 10,000 simolean bonus, but the other two that I plopped never got their workers or other requirements. So it seems that while you can plop more than one GW in a city only the first will actually develop. I get cars coming and going between the city and the airport, and between the city and my added arcology, but I'm not sure if the city has gained any benefit from the airport.

 

In the next city I think I will build the solar farm first. That way I will be able to tell if the city gets the benefit of all that power or not. If it does I can always share the power with the other cities, so that one at least might benefit all four cities in a roundabout way.

 

Whether you gain any benefit or not though, a major airport actually on the outskirts of the city, with people living around it, looks awesome.

 

Great Mod.

Okay, so you CAN reskin a greatwork? For instance could you take say the solar power grid and put a giant gas/electric station in its place? Essentially it work all work the exact same, it would just look different. That could be enough really

Hi everybody,

To plop a great work, the game tell me a need something to connect it. I built a street and after I succes. I notice a street is in the middle of one of great work (entrance?) and don't look active. The great project is plopable everywhere but is better to plop it in a great project area or is possible to have a city and inside an active greatwork and megatower, etc...? Somebody can please show printscreens from city/region with plopable great project and show it here or to send me in private?

Thank you in advance :)

This is not ploppable on the great works sites.  If I'm incorrect, then some kind of documentation on how to do so would be helpful.

      MY son and I are in multiplayer.  We have they cities in a region and have started an International Airport in the Great Works area.   It has as establish, construction started and it asking for Alloy, Metal and petroleum from the cities. We have stared the giving process from two of the cities and the arrows show it should be going but nothing seem to ever get there.  One city has oil wells and the other recycles to get Alloy and Metal.  What are we missing? I tried turning off Global Deliveries at the trade center but that did not help. Suggestions?  thanks

      Hiya!
      I made a model of Albi's Sainte Cécile cathedral in the south of France in Blender, then tried to make the texture for it. The texture didn't work out but I didn't look into it as much because I had another problem: the model, once imported into the asset editor, was all squashed. I tried reducing the size of it but it still got squashed. And now when I try to select it in the asset editor, it crashes the game. I'm not sure why this is happening, and I'd appreciate any help on this topic!
      This is my model (I kept it simple) :

      Hey all,
      I've ran into a bit of free time lately, but I'm away from my desktop and finally decided to tinker with making 3D models.  I've been thinking about doing it for awhile, but I haven't had the time to plug away making anything worthwhile.  For now, all the modeling will be Seattle/American related to fulfill my desire for accuracy on the city journal side of things; however, I will release to the public as people will make use of them in one way or another.  I'll be covering a wide range of architectural history and most of the buildings/assets for Seattle help make the city skyline unique compared to others.  Also not on the list are various other buildings of various significance, but will be added in at a later date as my technical expertise on modeling improves.
      For the most part, these listed buildings below have various degrees of difficulty to achieve and should be a good learning curve to go beyond this set of 22 places at some point.

      The first building in design at the moment is the Safeco Plaza (#5), a 50 story, 160m tall office building that was Seattle's tallest building between 1969 to 1985.  At first glance, it looks like a fairly straight-forward box office building but after a good look in Google Street View, I noticed that the four corners protrude out and that the ground floor entry is entirely glass and depressed inside by several meters.  I'll be revealing progress shortly...

      Hi all!
      Like most of you folks, I have a huge back-catalog in a spreadsheet somewhere of assets I plan on making some day.
      Well, here's my list.. This is just the stuff I want to make, It's alright if there is already a good asset on the workshop for it, it's just for my own pleasure.
      This isn't going to replace the refinery project, I'll still keep updating that thread. I just wanted to have a place to keep my other assets organized and seek advice from everyone.
      I'll have to clean up the list at some point, but for now it's just a data dump. I have some more things I would like to make, but I don't have a design picked out yet, so I left them off for now.

      I've recently subscribed to the RICO mod so I will be able to create more realistic cities but other than industrial buildings, I'm serverely lacking in the following:
      Low commercial buildings High residential buildings High commercial buildings Office buildings If anyone here has a link to either a collection or a mod author to point me towards, it would help greatly.
