About This File

Short version: Yep, did it again.
This time you can choose between 71 DATs which are different monorail train styles for the same 15 colors as in the Color Pack #1.
However, the "A" in "Pack 2A" stands for the fact that it has only (!) my NewWindows version which I find visually more pleasing than the different window concepts of the default monotrain.
Hint:
For full enjoyment, I recommend the UV map fix for the default monorail. It fixes some graphical issues you might notice when zooming in closer on the monorail trains.

 

Long version: In case you want more information.
SimScientists still haven't exhausted all possible options in this new academic field - color packs - so the monorails they love to ride so much are getting another choice of colored liveries!
The main surprise of the public were two things:
- the exclusion of the old blue-ish roofs/tops of the monorails which are now either colored or in a nice clean white
- the exclusion of the default small passenger windows in favor of the new bigger windows ... Sims like the view!

71 possible choices for the default Maxis monorail train model:
   - 14 colors with CS (Colored Stripe), WB (White Bottom) and CT (Colored Top)
   - 14 colors with InvertedOWS (OWS = Original White Stripe) ... it's not inverted like color inverted, it's inverted in that the stripe is now colored and the rest is white-ish
   - 14 colors with OWS and CT
   - 14 colors with OWS and WT (White Top)
   - 15 colors with a single color (= single) and CT ... yeah, this naming here is really messy.

The 15 colors are (not following any official naming convention here):
   - Banana Day
   - Blue Ocean
   - Flashy Green
   - Fresh Green
   - Grass Green
   - Hot Pink
   - Intense Orange
   - Lazy Orange
   - Original Red (the default red)
   - Spring Green (yeah, another one!)
   - Turquoise (tortoise is the animal, this is the tricky color mix of green and blue)
   - Tropic Blue
   - Violet Blue
   - Warm Yellow (it's more like standard yellow in comparison to Banana Day)
   - White Grey (which only occurs in single color variations)

What's in the box?
Aside from the 71 DAT files there are 3 preview pics to help you choose the right livery and the readme. I hope to encourage others to include similar information in their projects to give the user the chance to remember what the file includes even when you open it after several months or so.

Any dependencies?
Nope, this is still a texture replacement for the default Maxis monorail train model. The DAT files only include the two FSH items for the engine and passenger part.
You should know what that means - if you don't see the color, check that you have installed it in one of the Plugins folders (choose one!) and you are starting with the default Maxis monorail (or only slight modifications of it).

      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

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

      Kevdan25's fantastic models are the focus In the first pack of restaurant relots I plan to release. I did not relot his Jack in the Box because of its enormous size and the Hard Rock Cafe has been left out as well. The purpose here was to try to get each lot to be as similar as they can be to each other. To use a lot or all of them you will need to download each lot from Kevdan25. (I do apologize for this, but I'm not aware of any other way to do this.) Links as well as more information on each lot are found below.
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. If you only want one of my relots just simply delete the other attached files.
      You can delete the lot file which comes from Kevdan25 buildings (found in the folder) if you would like to clear up space in both your landmark menu in game and in your plugin files. 
      3x3 lots:
      3x4 lots
      3x5 lots
      4x3 lots
      4x4 lots
      Other Dependencies:

      This is the original landmark pack for SimCity 3000. Since you can't download it from the official site anymore I decided to upload it here on Simtropolis.
       
      Installation:
      Go to your SimCity 3000 folder then go to "Apps" then place your unpacked folder in the directory.

      These are TRAIN MODS made by Dearnen that have been in the MODD forums for a long time. The downloads have stopped working on some of the links so I emailed Dearnen and got his permission to put them up here so everyone could enjoy them. With this set you get Two Short Line Roads. New England Central and Genesee & Wyoming. Short Line railroads for those of you who don't know are SMALL rail companies that serve usually lesser traveled tracks to pick up/deliver freight to larger railroads. There are 4 locomotives in all, 2 replace the original game locomotive (YOU CAN ONLY USE ONE OF THESE AT A TIME) and then there are 2 extras that will show up at random (USE AS MANY AS YOU WANT). Read the README that comes with the download for more information. Place the files of your choice in: ProgramFiles/Maxis/SimCity4/Plugins THANK YOU Dearnen for allowing me to post these great locomotives!
