About This File

The education cheat is comprehensive and requires just the base game. You may experience issues if you have also installed other mods that affect any aspect of education, including the individual buildings of the university, grade school/high school classrooms, and buses.

 

All of the cheats reduce resource requirements while greatly increasing desired output. Usable only in single player mode.

** It's recommended that you tear down existing education facilities if you use this mod.

 

The package file modifies the following instances, and for that reason, may prove incompatible with other mods that do the same:

 

Modified instances: (see screenshot for SimCityPak).

What this mod does:

  • Number of workers required to start operating set to 1.
  • No plop or maintenance cost
  • Power and water requirements greatly reduced.
  • Garbage requirements zeroed out.
  • Increases capacity of the library to 1,000.
  • Increases capacity for buses to 300 students per bus.
  • Increases capacity of the school bus stop to 300 students.
  • Increases number of buses per bus lot to 20 buses per lot.
  • Increases capacity for classrooms to a maximum of 9500 for grade school and 10,000 for high school. 
  • Increases capacity for the gymnasium to 50,000.
  • Increases capacity for the university to 8,000 students and 5,000 students per each university school (education, medicine, science, etc.).
  • Increases capacity for the university dorms to 5,000 per dorm building.
  • Increases capacity for the community college to 5,000 and its extension wing to 5,000.
  • Sets university research requirement costs to 1 simolean per researched item.
  • Research for all university projects now only require 1 student each, making research time nearly non-existent.

 

Not affected:

  • Job counts
  • Museums
  • Flagpoles
  • University pedestrian roads

 

Note:

 

High school has a base number of students at 8,000 and each classroom an additional 2,500, but maxes out at 10k.

 

 

To use:

Place all files in SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages.  If you already have the script files, you don't need to put them in there again, just the included package file.

If you start a new region, what I find I must do is start the region, save it, quit the game, and then re-start for any mods to work the first time, even other people's mods that I've downloaded here.

If you use this file, delete and replop any existing education facilities. Same holds true if you remove the file.

 


What's New in Version 1.05


Released

  • 1.0 Initial Upload
  • 1.01 Fixed a power fluctuation with the grade school.
  • 1.02 Changed power consumption rate back to the default of 72 to address a potential power fluctuation with the main module of the university. The amount of power being consumed has not changed, it's still its low value from the original release of the mod. If you are using 1.01, please bulldoze and replop the university. If you see no power fluctuations, don't worry about downloading 1.02.
  • 1.03 Fixed the name of the education package as it appears in the RAR file. Sorry about that.
  • 1.04 Made the same type of fix to the high school for a potential power fluctuation as I made in 1.02 for the university. I also double-checked the remaining components prior to this release to be sure they were okay. I did not have to destroy/replop for changes to take effect. If you already have the script files in your directory, you only need the education file. I had one more momentary power fluctuation after restarting the game, but it did not reappear after that.
  • 1.05 All university research projects now only require 1 educated student, so research is nearly instantaneous.

Right on, I was going to ask for this, but I didn't want to bother you... yet.

 

Thank you for getting this deployed.

Welcome, glad you like it.  I probably will not be releasing a transportation mod.  I am working on one for myself, but there are many mods for transportation that are done really well, and transportation has a lot of moving parts (excuse the pun).

If I download this will I need to demolish and re plop all the bus stops in my city and the schools/library's? Or just the schools/library's?

Megatower, no.  I don't know the mechanics well enough to delve into that.  I've built a wind power plant, but I'm still testing it.

Also, as far as Omego goes, since my fire, hospital, and police mods give you 500 drones per hangar, and you get 2 hangars, you can plop 1,000 drones per each facility without ever creating an Omega factory, and should you run through a thousand drones, you can always destroy the hangar and replop it and boom, another thousand.  I purposefully set the drone count that high so that I'd never have to mess with creating Omega.

Yeah Omega mods are buggy at best. I still have yet to see one that either works or does what would be helpful. Like for example, the consumption rate of Omega is just out of this world brutal.

 

Thanx for the tip about the drone hangers, I never thought about doing that.

I'm loving this mod! It's perfect. :D One thing: i noticed that my university keeps losing power intermittently. For about 10 -15 mins game time, i keep being told that the university has no power. It does come back on eventually, but it's quite strange. My electricity plant is definitely creating power, and it's ONLY the university that gives me this message. 

 

The only mods I am using are you single player offline ones for Education, Fire, Police, Hospital and Garbage.

I haven't been experiencing that.  Did you demolish your existing university first?  I will monitor the university's power levels.

Glad you like the mods :)

I used the mods with a new game, no existing services/education in it. (Also, I did the create game, save the city, exit game, then go back in). 

I removed the Education mod, and played a new game with the existing university etc, and didn't get any power outages at all. 

 

I couldn't work out what was causing it - the power outages for education was definitely only happening with the Education mod installed and used. (and I only play offline, not online) 

 

I have your Power Fusion plant mod too - but I honestly can't remember now if I was using that power plant at the time. :(

Ok, I've made a minor minor tweak and re-issued the education package.  Download, destroy existing, replop, restart game, see what happens.  With this new tweak, I added the main university module, watched power for a while, added the next, watched power, etc., until I built the entire university.  Did that both with and without my fusion power plant.  I never saw the lightning symbol over the university that it was starved for power, just the normal 1-2 second dimming of the power from yellow to orange and then back again, which all buildings can experience.

 

Let me know if that helps.  If you already have the simcity packages in the folder, you don't need to put those in there again, just the education package.

Thanks.

Ok... Late to the Mod... But I'm not getting it to work for me...  Installed it as directed then deleted HS to begin testing things...  Created new HS only... Max students is 800, 2 bus only will pick up 80 students...  Played a bit and those stats held true as my HS couldn't accommodate more that 800 students... Added a classroom module that got the max to be 1800.  Good...  But the buses only still pick up 80 students.  Am I missing something?

Thanks!!

I have the mod installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages

 

Perhaps where you installed it might be an issue?

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do 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 is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. 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

      This BAT is loosely based on a real school in Bourke Street Surry Hills and acts a combined older style elementary and high school with an expanded school coverage radius.

      Description
      During the middle of the 19th Century, the NSW government embarked on a massive school building program in order to relieve the pressures of substandard and over-crowded schools; the problem being particularly chronic in inner city Sydney.
      This building, completed in 1884, was designed as a model school to replace the previous temporary buildings which had housed students since the early 1800s.

      It is modelled (a la mode) in the Italianate Palace Style and construction costs were unparalleled.

      Designed as both a junior and senior school, 19thCentury sensibilities abound: high narrow windows to allow abundant light and airflow, but high enough to stop indolent daydreaming; a small bell tower to announce class times with a single peal and separate entrances for boys and girls in the front senior wing.

      The larger junior wing (Kindergarten to Year 6) has a single cupola dome to mark the entrance for all students. The time and weather-worn motto of the school is carved in sandstone on each of the front Gable projections: “VERITATE VERITUTE”

      This school still stands and has served the children of Surry Hills, Strawberry Hill, Redfern, Moore Park and Waterloo for over 120 years.

      Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by the recent SC3000 uploads, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), San Francisco is a non-profit organisation and holds an internationally recognised collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the US West Coast devoted solely to 20th Century art.
      The present building was designed by Mario Botta in the late 1980s and the building - as depicted here in SC4 - was completed in 1995.
      It was recently given a large extension in 2009, but I have not modelled that part of the building.
      This building acts as a Museum and sits on a 4x4 lot providing 315 highly desirable civic jobs and gives a large educational boost across a wide radius.
      It is found in the Education Menu.

      May NOT be a flaw. The standard use of n-coordinates is that the y--coordinate is used for East-West or vice-versa. The x--coordinate is for the North-South or vice-versa. These are in the same flat plane. The z--coordinate is used for heights. Values can be positive or negative. But I don't know if these conventions are hard wired, or if they can be interactive.
      To get back to this topic, I noticed that the TerrainQuery  cheat is using the z--coordinate as the x--coordinate. The little pic explains it better:
      (from Wikipedia)
      This little glitch baffled me for a good while until I checked the cheat's values with a gray map height levels. They correspond rightly.
      EDIT: I wrote "cheat is using the z--coordinate as the x--coordinate". It should be "cheat is using the z--coordinate as the y--coordinate" as @CorinaMarie rightly pointed this out in a post below.

      Eddy Hall, Minnesota, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by a picture posted by a member of Simtropolis, the real Eddy Hall was constructed in 1886 as the Mechanic Arts Building for the University of Minnesota.
      The actual building is a simplified Queen Anne style executed in red-brick and red sandstone trim. The square tower which is slightly offset from the centre of the building dominates the frontage; it, together with the multi-gabled roof, large windows, patterned brick panels and wrough iron cresting make this a charming, eye catching building.
      This version is not a 100% accurate copy, but it is true to the language of the architectural style of the original building and this is simply one that I made for myself, but have decided to share with the community.
      The lot comes in two flavours: a growable Commercial Services (3x2 and 3x3...there is always an insatiable need for CS§§§ in game) and a ploppable College on a 4x4 lot, which is found in the Education Menu.
