Proportional Industry Jobs 1.0.0

About This File

* It is highly advisable to demolish I-HT yards, I-D/I-M sheds or grounds.(they're the whitish land that's not really a building. Sheds are the tiny buildings in I-D or I-M zones(I'm not sure which one)) The decreased job count for these lots can mean they might turn into ghost jobs. Except for them, the 'buildings' have been boosted in various amounts.

 

OK, the Industry sector in this game is not really all that great.

I was fed up with the fact that a large industrial building(ex. Dead Forest Paper, Zeno's Truck Parts) is

thirty, forty times larger than a small one(Farley's Foundry, Bella Barium, etc.)

and they have about 3~10 times the jobs. Bella Barium, a 2x2 stage 1 building that looks more like 2x1.5, has 23 jobs.

Zeno's truck Parts is about 2 times taller, 2.5 times wider and 3 times longer, and it's a stage 3. It should not have only 78 jobs.

I used both the Industry Doubler and the Quadrupler once, and while it was nice to have 400-ish jobs on large buildings, an I-HT yard having 20-ish made no sense.

 

===============================================

So I have boosted the pop counts for those industrial buildings, based on the 3-dimensional size of said buildings and by stage.

(stage 3 has an advantage over stage 1, and I-D has more pop than I-M, which has more pop count than I-HT)

You can see that it is proportional to the *volume* of the buildings, not just a blind x2, x4 factor. (Yards/Grounds actually decreased in job count)

 

They range from single-digit numbers to 606(I-M), 962(I-D, Dead Forest Paper), and 386(I-HT, Spline Testing?)

After testing, I found that it usually increases the industry population by approximately three times. This is quite variable, if your industrial zones have lots of big buildings there will be bigger boosts, whereas in industry zones filled with Bella Barium or Farley's Foundry has less of an effect.

I have separated the files into 3 parts - I-D, I-M, and I-HT.

 

*Don't mind the font. I changed it manually using another .dat. This mod has no effects on your game font.

 

*Comments and constructive criticism always help. (I am a light modder, but anyway)

User Feedback

It is CRITICALLY important for users of this file to know that, if you have pre-existing buildings whose occupancy numbers are lowered by this mod, you will end up with permanent ghost jobs within your city's save file. The consequence of this is that there will always be jobs floating around, affecting the simulator, that you can't get rid of short of nuking the tile.

By way of example: Assume for a moment a building has 10/10 jobs, normally. With this mod, it's lowered to 8/8. 2 ghost jobs will always exist within the save file for the city.

hmm.... interesting.. because I didn't really see such a phenomenon, at least from the region view and stats (they register correctly) and the commute works as normal. Could you elaborate about how the decreased jobs affect the game?

The amount of lots that had their jobs decreased is extremely rare and I don't think it will cause much problems, but nevertheless I posted your message in red at the beginning.

Does that mean that the demand for R and C will be affected, so that in your example, there is 10 demand for 8 jobs?

The 2 ghost jobs, as from my example, will generate demand for residents dependent upon their occupancy type. This is, as you say, a minor issue. However, this something that can never be corrected; the jobs have been dislodged from their originating lot and simply exist to be counted by the game.

You should be able to "see" these ghost jobs if you install the Census Repository Facility, as it accurately registers all jobs within the city. Bulldoze everything in the city, rendering the tile empty, and any ghost jobs will still be counted.

This problem also exists for residentials, but is vastly more problematic. Ghost residents still use civic capacity, affecting city-wide happiness and other numbers.

Does this conflict with the CAM? I want to try it on a new city but I am using the CAM and don't want a conflict. Thanks for this, though.

Most surely yes, in a similar way than the Industrial Revolution Mod also conflicts with the CAM. I'm not so sure about the CAM 2.0, but it is highly probable too. As a general rule, do not mix different demand mods.

Those are all the 1x1 industrial lots that have no building inside

      Rural Docklands Expansion
      36 Lots to expand the Rural Docklands
       
      Warning
      The original Rural Docklands Sets I and II by Doc Rorlach(†) requires 11 Dependencies. This expansion set requires additional 11 Dependencies. So if you never used the Rural Docklands before you might end up with 22 Dependencies to download.
      Basic Information
      This product enlarges the Dural Docklands with 3 and 4 tiles deep lots and quite a few corner lots to build up an industrial water front. There are no container ports related lots in this set. You can find many of them already on the STEX. This set was done with inland ports and the filling of large harbour areas in mind.
      To make the many different corner pieces user friendly I used symbols on the icons. It's easy to understand but it's strongly recommended to read the chapter 'Usage' in the included pdf. It takes less than a minute.
      The new lots use the same querry window as the original ones. Most of the lots use similar stats as the original set - they are almost neutral to the city with no monthly cost and small or no pollution or consumption. The main lots (car transfer dock, building material transfer dock, chemical liquids dock, coal docks) are modded for a small caps relief on industries (CRI lots).
      This set is dedicated to the memory of Doc Rohrlach.
       
       
      While downloading the following dependencies - please consider to compliment the original creators. They did the main job.
      Dependencies and Installation Notes
       
      1. WMP Rural Dockands and Dependencies
      WMP_RDock_Set1.zip

      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol04.dat
      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol06.dat
      which are not included in the download section, as they are external dependencies.
      Hint: Rural Docklands, Set I containes a file called 'wmp_dummies.dat' and Rural Docklands, Set II contains the same file again. You can delete one of them.

      Hi, any CS$$ with a lot of jobs??? thkss
    • By CT14
      Welcome to the development thread for CT14 lots and BAT. Here's a quick list of current releases so you don't have to scroll through the thread to find them all:
      North American Freight Sidings
      Llama Terminal Company
      SABER LA River
      Troy Gasholder Building
      FAB Diagonal Industrials
      North American Freight Sidings original first post:
      Inspired by the lack of existing lots representing protypical North American freight railroad sidings, I've created a system of lots that can be used to create eye-candy rail sidings. They are transit-enabled for appearance. I have been encouraged to share my progress in a dedicated thread by helpful feedback in the Show Us Your Railroads general thread, especially from SimCoug, T-Wrecks, raynev1. And the whole thing wouldn't exist without the Jestarr props.


      Features:
      18 ploppable lots for different railcar types on double track rail Transit enabled connections to make the lots fit in seamlessly anywhere Three prop families to provide a variety from Jestarr's boxcars, intermodal and general merchandise freight ("Junkers") RRW compatibility Known issues:
      Transparent texture bug as described here http://community.simtropolis.com/forums/topic/42425-transparent-texture-issue/ The lots need custom icons created and added, through Reader as described here: http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Tutorial:Inserting_a_custom_menu_icon_with_the_Ilive_Reader Future development ideas:
      Single Track Rail lots don't match exactly when using textures extracted from the RAM .dat, and I probably need permission to use them separately in any case. So, STR sidings may be a separate release at some point. Four-track lots would be prototypical for large yard trackage, but don't exist in RRW. Custom textures might allow some eye-candy four-track lots in future, this would resemble an updated subset of NCD. Dependencies:
      BSCMegaProps JES Vol01 (v1.0) - http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=342 For RRW, you need the NAM with RRW enabled. Download:
      Please report bugs here. Thanks!
