About This File

This is my first building for this game. Give your industrial area a boost with this factory/tourist attraction.

History:
Colossal Mills is the largest cereal factory in the region founded 50 years ago by Jack Methanial who discovered the rich fiber from his corn fields that drastically helped cure his constipation. He helped many others stay regular too. He was not only a farmer but a pastry chef. His sweetened crispy corn recipe became famous and that was the beginning of a very successful cereal company. He called it Chirpy Krisps which is the flagship product. He later added blue marshmallows made with a heavily guarded recipe. Chirpy Krisps is a big hit worldwide.

Recently the doors were open to the public so people can get a closer look at where their favorite cereal is made.
Upon entering the building, a raffle ticket is given along with an empty container to scoop warm Chirpy Krisp puffs that comes down a conveyer belt straight from the oven. It's great out the box but nothing beats the experience at the factory.
Inside there is a bar and restaurant with master chefs who make everything from a fancy bowl of cereal to entrees you would find in upscale steak houses. They also have some of the best cheesecakes in the region that come in many flavors including the cereal brands. One of the favorites is the Chirpy Shmores. It's a larger version of the corn puffs freshly hand made with the famous melted blue marshmallow between. This decadent treat brings tourists from near and far.
Inside is a gift shop too with souvenirs and cook books.

Winners of the raffle get a dozen of Krispy shmores and a voucher for a dozen boxes of their favorite cereals made at the factory. That's why there are prepared people walking in with suitcases. Other cereal brands include Fruity Shrooms, Strawberry Moo flakes and Chocobits.


STATS:
16x8 Level 2 Unique Building

Main Model- 6788 tris
Custom LOD- 410 tris

315 jobs.

This was going to be submitted for the Tempted contest but I didn't begin on time and I realized that I would not be able to put the detail I really wanted. So this building is dedicated to all the contestants and the Devs who sponsored it.

Great work! Best mod for the game, if I do say so myself... That pic with the Chirpy Krisps cereal on the table, is pure genius.

      Jenquai Alchemy, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Another Maxis Hi-tech ( stalwart gets a 21st Century facelift.
      Jenquai goes from that small half underground building which steps back from the lot (and is accessed via a sort of draw-bridge) to a shiny, new and much larger facility. Just like the previous building which had sunken areas and elevated walkways, this new IHT factory provides a lovely, leafy sunken courtyard for employees to take lunch as well as a raised walkway connecting the two buildings.
      This version is a Hi-Tech growable anchor 6x6 lot (use the CTRL key when zoning to ensure the correct lot size) and will not interfere with any Maxis blockers or re-lots of the original Jenquai Alchemy.

      ---------------------------------------
      STATS IH-T§§§:
      Lot size :                   6x6 (Use the CTRL key when zoning)
      Growth Stage:          3 (Medium and High Density Zoning)
      Bulldoze Cost:          § 391
      Capacity Satisfied:   IHT§§§ 838
      Pollution:                  16 (Air)/ 6 (Water)/ 5 (Garbage )
      Pollution Radius:      6/7/0
      Power Consumed:   117 Mwh
      Water Consumed:    109 Gal/Month
      Building Style:           Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro
      Occupant Group:      Hi Tech Industrial Anchor Building
       
      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.
      You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot or Desc files!
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod.
      ---------------------------------------
      A NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      Sadly, if there appears to be any parking used in the content picture as either part of, or adjacent to the custom content in question, it has now come to the ridiculous scenario of having to write a blurb about parking textures given yet more comments received form only one or two users (comments which incidentally are only made on my lots - I note that other active Batters use Maxis parking lots all the time and receive no negative comments, such is the double-standard). Please note that I will use whatever parking textures I feel like on my lots. If you want something else, then use the lot editor.

      Stratton Biotech, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      As part of providing some much needed, long overdue upgrades to some of the Maxis I-HT stalwarts, I decided that Stratton Biotech deserved a new 're-imaging' for the 21st Century. After all, it has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years, so it is probably due for some extra space. Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed.
      This I-HT Anchor lot comes in two flavours: 4x4 and 8x8 (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size).
      It is growable only on medium and high density Industrial zones and provides between 204 and 1,122 jobs (depending on the lot size).
      The building itself is strictly fictional: I have used exposed steel girders, a false wall and false window panelling to shelter a central courtyard. This lends a more substantial air to the front façade.

      Pedriana Pharmaceuticals, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      As part of providing some much needed, long overdue upgrades to some of the Maxis I-HT stalwarts, I decided that Pedriana Pharmaceuticals deserved a new 're-imaging' for the 21st Century. After all, the in-game structure that has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years does not reflect the grandiose commercial buildings which bear its name, so it is probably overdue for a facelift and some rebranding.
      Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed.
      This I-HT Anchor building is substantial and only comes as an 8x8 lot (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size).
      It is growable only on high density Industrial zones and provides 1,079 jobs.
      The building itself is fictional, but draws inspiration from the Voestalpine Stahl Service Center in Austria.

    • In case you're interested this is what I've got after extracting and installing the appropriate files.  Really no difference at all compared to when I first wrote you.
    • Do you know whether or not this file is compatible with SC4 on Steam?  I extracted the .7Z file and installed the files and I've still got nothing but a big blank lot.
    • Ahh, gotcha.  I'm using a Mac.  So the .7z file needs to be extracted.  That part I wasn't aware of, I just loaded the 7z file into my plugins folder.  I'll give it a shot!  Thanks!
    • Thought you might know it, but it was worth a shot. Ah yes, those real-estate photos - I had, in fact, seen an article about that blog somewhere and nearly forgotten about it afterwards, but then my sister gave me a tear-off calendar for Christmas: every day a horrible picture and a great one-liner. I love that stuff.
    • @nycsc4 ... This file should only include the texture and lot files - due to copyright reasons I have to link to anything that is not mine (the stadium in this case). I'm not sure what you mean by the "invisible KS file." On the OneDrive, there is a button for KS_AllianzArena 15x12 which once downloaded, will give a *.7z file. If you're using the default windows extractor, it may be a problem (not sure if it can handle 7zip files or not), but something like winrar should unzip it just fine. The .desc and .model files you need will be right there. Let me know if that's not working for you.
