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.

      So, I am starting a new thread here for any and all future assets I create for the game. My thread for the World Trade Center was originally supposed to be for that, but obviously it turned into a thread dedicated to that. In this one, I will try to keep WIP things to a minimum (or at least not like with the WTC), instead focusing on any finished assets and any updates on new stuff I'm working on.
      For starters:
      I'm sure most of you found it by now, but my first post-WTC building is the "Dump National Hotel", a magnificent golden slab to plop in your city. Actually, two, as it's actually two triangular towers in one lot. Especially if you read the Steam description, the name is a not-so-subtle parody of Donald Drumpf, mainly his penchant for all things gold and putting his name in 20 foot letters on every building he owns, like with the Drumpf tower in Chicago, where the DRUMPF name now looms over the Chicago River. The hotel can be found on Steam here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=527008015
      (Scroll down below the images to see another big update!)






      Now, as I've been trying to work more on other more important things I really need to be doing, I need to spend a bit less time on Skylines stuff, but it seems I just can't resist as much as I'd like. I may or may not do a bus station eventually, but there's something else I'll look into...
      Airplanes!
      For the longest time, I had no idea how to import vehicles, what was needed for them, and so on. But I decided to just make a simply plane-shaped thing and test it in the game. I just kept the pivot point the same as you would with buildings, but I put the nose wheel and the forward main wheels a little lower, as I recalled reading somewhere that the game automatically makes those move, and it worked perfectly! All I'd need to do now is make a decent model with textures and an LOD. Here's the test I did:

      Any suggestions for making planes work best would be appreciated! Especially where lighting is concerned, as I don't know if it's the same as with buildings.

      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

    • 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!
