About This File

The modern small fire station

This new building Mod replace the small fire station. I wish I can make the Mod as a new
Menu Item but on my end every tests crash the game or I get other issues.

 

I hope I can later fix that.

DONT FORGET TO RE-BUILD THE SMALL FIRE STATION!


FEATURES
- all LOD support
- new Lot size
- new layout of the ground texture
- new Light settings
- new garage building

For this building Mod I wrote a tutorial. The Tutorial show my steps.

issues as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support :)

#KNOWN ISSUES in single cities

 

- Garage enlargement don't show up
- Fire station can not be deleted from the city
 

This solution will not fix the problem, also in single cities will not work the trick.

1-delete the MOD "modern small fire station" from the SimCityData folder (... Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityData)
2.-start the game and create a new region, load an empty city
3.-place in the city, the small fire station (original by Maxis), save the game and exit the game
4.-copy again the MOD "modern small fire station" in the SimCityData folder (... Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityData)
5.-start the game and delete the previously created region, after deleting the region create again a new region
6.-load again an empty city, place the "modern small fire station", save the game and go back to the main menu
7. Go to region-overview, delete the region previously created
8.-Now you can load your city where the error was occurred.

You have to repeat this trick after each game restart. With exercise it takes less than 2 minutes. (I hope I can solve this problem later)

 

Many thanks go to Fr3akyGamesHD and Jürgen.

      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

      so I've been waiting for sub buildings to become native so I could finally finish off Flinders Street Station (from Melbourne) here's a quick WIP look - probably will release sometime soonish - maybe next week.

      Let me know what you guys think!

      Welcome back! (WL is short for Woodland)
      Click on the images for full screen (most are in 1920x1080)
      Another beautiful morning! Ahh, lovin' those gravel roads...
      After much saving up, we finally build Woodland's first ever Fire Station!
      Although it's not a Maxis Station, it is $150/month (cheaper than the $250 from a large station!) and has three fire trucks, instead of two!
      Today is a special day for this town...
      It's time to finally PAVE the roads! After much traffic problems, I think it's time we......(I turn my head looking West)
      What the? You see the smoke out in the distance? It's coming from River town! (Just as I said that the phone rang)
      *Phone rings*
      *Picks up phone*
      Me: This is Mayor Whiz, how may I help you?
      Caller: It's Paul, (the chief of police in WL River Town) We're burnin' down!!!
      Me: What?
      Caller: Our town's about to go up in flames! We got a huge forest fire out there!
      Me: I'll help! I just built a fire station! *Phone connection lost*
      I drive over to the fire station in a panic..
      Me: Big fire at River City!!! Come on let's go!!!
      I hitch a ride on a fire truck and we head west to WL River City
      (Yes, we finally built an actual neighbor connection, no more 1 hour hikes!)
      We make it to WL River City and see smoke with large flames out in the distance:
      Mathew: You got firefighters?!?! Thank god! We're about to burn up, I got the town evacuated, they're at Pleasantville for now! Look at that massive wall of flames coming our way!
      On a hot summer afternoon, lies the arduous task of putting out a town-threatening fire. The fire apparently started from a lightning strike and due to wind direction suddenly shifting, it became a massive "wall" of flames that walked towards the town. It finally got as close as the rail road, which thankfully stopped the fire from spreading any further. However, the houses and train stations could go up in flames if any cinders hit them and turn the city that has given us electricity into a raging inferno!
      (The fire reaches the railroad as our town's entire firefighter caste fights to save Mathew's industrial town from a raging inferno. Mathew hasn't built a fire station yet.)
      The fire spreads westward north of the houses and consumes the houses outside the town:
      Luckily, the rest of the town will be spared. After hours of hose spraying, we actually manage to get control of the inferno. Only a few houses are burnt down...
      The firefighters return to WL Town, and I stay over at WL River City.
      The next morning...we get treated to a small riot:
      One police station later:
      The riot is calmed. Some very angry citizens as a result of the fire (they lost all their possessions in the fire)
      The beautiful forest that surrounds this town are now charred and dead...
      Mathew: It's going take years for all those woods to grow back!
      Me: Hey look at the bright side, at least you won't feel guilty cutting those trees down to expand the town anymore!
      Mathew: True, I was going to expand westward eventually, but I used to love taking long walks through the woods and so did a lot of my citizens. That's one of the biggest reasons they live here. And man thank you so much for saving my town! My town wouldn't be here right now if it wasn't for your firefighters!
      Me: Don't need to thank me, you saved my town from obliteration! (Chapter 2). For that I am eternally grateful.
      You save my city and I'll always save yours if you ever have trouble. That's what best friends are for!
      I return back to my town...
      ----------South Residential Expansion----------
      In order to meet the very high residential demands, a new residential sector will be created that extends south of the main town.
      Stats as of now before expansion:

      We have nearly $25,000 in the bank and we're a modest $400 a month. Residential demand is up the roof!
      The roads are drawn...
      (Note that these roads were drawn before the gravel roads)
      New growth:
      Found the pics of the gravel roads being added!
      Before:
      After:
      (Six new windmills were built in order to meet power demands. We're producing 1200MW and receiving 1000MW from WL River Town)
      Schools are finally having an effect!
      A new DSW shoe warehouse store:

      A new trail among the beautiful woods behind the store:
      Our population is now over 4000 sims, and we're making over $700 a month!
      New farms were built known as the North Farming Sector:
      Beautiful evening at Central Square
      Ghosts congregate at the cemetery, telling each other stories of the lives they lived and kids they scared
      The next day, we get hit by a thunderstorm...
      Storm season's been pretty quiet this year, although next year is predicted to be intense since there's an air current that comes down every couple years that allows severe storms. This is a weather pattern that results in tornadoes but only every 3-5 years.
      A downpour in an April afternoon:
      Some back yards are flooded but amid the rain the baseball and soccer teams still practice in the flooded fields!
      A few days later, the East Residential area gets an expansion:
      Even after the growth, residential demand is still very high. I finally decide to take the leap...
      I zone medium density residential and commercial around the central square area
      And up they go!
      This is a huge milestone, and the first sign of urbanization. They grow up so fast!
      ==========The First Apartments==========
      Medium density offices will soon be built here as well. The apartments line up around the Main Central Square area, which someday, will be the Down Town!
      Population is now over 5000 and we're making nearly $1000 a month!
      Now it's over 6000 and we're making over $1200 a month! We have $45,200 in the bank! That's the most we ever had!
      Let the good times continue!!!
      However...While the town may be booming now, all the new apartments have made traffic issues much worse:
      (Note the new mansion! Our first R-$$$ House, that's another milestone!)
      Mathew warned us about this.
      This brings us to the next major milestone:
      ==========The First Roads!==========
      The roads are paved along the Main Central Square and extend to North and South Industries (Where most people work)
      Much better! There's still some trouble spots but there's definitely improvement!
      Also take note that we tore down the six windmills that were around the cemetery. Mayor Mathew built a second coal power plant so now we're receiving 4000MW of power a month for only $243/month! That's much better than the $300/month for 1200MW of power from the windmills!
      In the mansion in the above image lives my friend Ben, the manager of one of the low density CO-$$$ business. Thanks to all the traffic, he was able to make huge profits and have a big mansion built right down the road so he only has to walk to work. He's done a lot of good things to this city!
      *Thunder*
      (Notices distant flashes of lightning in the night sky)
      Another powerful thunderstorm heads our way on this fine evening...
      On that note, let's end it here.
      To be continued...
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Stay tuned for Chapter 6!
      Story Summary (For those who are in a rush)
      A lot has happened in this chapter! First we saved the neighboring city (Woodland River Town) from a raging wall of fire by sending our firefighters from our town, to which Mayor Mathew highly appreciated. We got back, and expanded the east housing in our town, got hit by a few thunderstorms, built more farms, created a south residential area, first apartments, first mansion (R-$$$) and first paved roads ever. We also got our power deal increased from 1000MW/m to 4000MW/m, and we no longer need power plants. All the power we receive now comes from Mathew's town.
      Population has increased from 2000 to 6100 and profit from $400 to $1200 a month.

      Comment Replies from last Update (Chapter 4 Part 2)
      @Tonraq: I'm glad too! Loans ain't cheap!
      @Kim Sunwoo: Thank Mayor Mathew for that, if he didn't come in and stop the obliteration, this journal would really be a two-update short story!
      @dabadon5: Thank you!
      @Paulobergonci: Glad you like it! I want to play the game as fair but realistically as possible, and balance things out. I'll always make beautiful shots but also show normal in-game shots as this city grows. One day when it hits 1 million we can look back to this update and remember the memories!
      @anytownUSA: It is indeed. You'll later on see another town (in a future update) that learned the hard way about growth...
      @VonCheese: That's what makes the game fun, I enjoy a challenge! I want to show the beauty of this game and Photoshop as well without neglecting the core aspects of the game play! At heart, this CJ is about a town that goes from 0 to 1 million sims, and every obstacle it overcomes. It's the story that makes it interesting, and this is still only the beginning of this journey!
      @jolteon: Thank you! And I did by using Paint.Net, creating a 2nd layer, creating white blobs and blurring and distorting (use dents) them then repeating until they were realistic enough. (Hint: Multiple layers of different shades of white) Before that, I also took a pic of both cities and pasted them together (I'll post a tutorial later down the road)
    • By Lee Towers
      Hey all! I've been following this forum for a while now and all your amazing creations inspired me to start building assets myself. The first building is almost finished - a 3 track train station, as seen below (props for the person to recognise the station it's based on). I still have a few problems with it though, so bear with me:
      1. The game is creating floors inside the building on its own. There's not even a vertex with the same z-coordinate where it's creating an xy plane inside the building. Is this something that's generated on purpose by the game? The floors are assigned the same textures as the roof of the building. They can be seen through the windows and are positioned about halfway behind the windows.
      2. My sims are not using the third platform. I'm using the single station track with a platform on the left side of the track (relative to the direction it was laid). I thought it had to do with the pedestrian connections that I've laid down, but they are using the second platform which is accessed by the same pedestrian connection.
      3. Speaking of pedestrian connections... I'd much prefer a rendered underground tunnel to the half-assed building I have there now but the game isn't letting me (it pushes the whole model upwards). How do I go about doing that? I know Joak uses them in his train stations, how did he do that?
      Any help regarding one of these questions would me much appreciated! Feedback on the model is also welcome by the way... it's my first time using blender and gimp. The textures aren't final either (mainly the roof and supports need work) but I've yet to learn how to use bump maps.

      Lee Towers killed the station by accident. If anyone has a running game and a copy of the older version of the station pls. upload to steam as Lee has no old copy.
