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.

If you notice any problems, please report them in the comments and I will look at the
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.

It looks very good. Much better than the original small fire station.

 

I noticed that you can't place the fire bell module or the sign on this station. but you can place the bell on top of an extra garage module. The sign isn't important but the bell is useful. Also, the original fire bell looks a bit strange on this new modern station. Do you plan to make a new fire bell?

Absolutely incredible. Sure to get over 10 thousand downloads. Looks great and was much needed in the simcity community. I would recommend a mod for the airport, the planes or the SUV taxi with this level of quality in it.

I wonder if soon they'll be able to re-texture a skyscraper!

re-texture I dont find a good way to do it. I re used the Maxis textures. In my tutorial I tell how I use the textures.

re-texturing is possible making new Building decals is possible  a bit tricky but can be done i have a 40 - 50% building map ready they are more complicated than the building itself. i mean flip building textures are just rendered high poly building materials made in maya

      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.

      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.

      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.

      This is a blue station, its main characteristics are that it is blue and it is a tube station ;). It has a capacity of 20,000 commuting sims and sits snugly on a 2x2 lot. All for

    • 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!
