Veredas Santiaguinas
A sidewalk mod made by matias93

Este mismo texto está en español adentro del archivo!

AKNOWLEGDEMENTS:

This mod couldn't be possible without the impressing work of Rivit and MGB204 (rsc204), creators of GoFSH and the (not yet published) Automated Sidewalk Mod. To make a mod as big as this by hand, as many other creators had done before, is a titanical task that deserves sheer aknowlegdement; I just created a couple of textures and clicked buttons once and then.

DESCRIPTION:

This textures are inspired in the 'veredas' or sidewalks that were built around 1980 in Santiago, Chile: they are little concrete tiles with geometrical designs, that form big square shapes using black or red tiles. In the game, I chose to keep an uniform colour, trying to avoid the sudden colour changes that make Maxis' textures so unappealing; instead, only coloured tiles change with wealth level, as the general condition of the sidewalk: ochre tiles with clean and orange-y concrete in high wealth sidewalks, red burgundy squares and grey concrete in mid-wealth textures, and blackish borders with stained concrete in the low-wealth sidewalk.

Thanks to MGB204's scripts, this mod can change all textures that correspond originally to Maxis' white tiles: sidewalks on all streets, roads and avenues (including RHW intersections), crossings with all other networks, pedmalls, plazas and residential, commercial, industrial and services' lots; it is even compatible with the new additions on NAM 34. An important exception are GLR (tramway) tracks, that get sorrounded by the new texture but not completely replaced. Depending on the existence of more advanced scripts, this could change in a newer version.

INSTRUCTIONS: <-- Jump here if you don't like the details

This mod has to be installed MANUALLY. Is not enough to copy and paste everything: you'll end with a cluttered folder and surely your prefered networks will be oddly patched.

  1. Copy the folder called z___veredasstgo to your Plugins folder (the one that is on My Documents/Documents/). It is preferable that you delete all other sidewalk mods, but the folder is named in a way that will load it the last, overwriting other conflictive textures.
  2. Open the folder you just copied and delete the files you won't use:
    a. "Veredas Stgo BASE" chenges most street, road and avenue sidewalks, so you should keep it.
    b. "Veredas Stgo sitios y plazas (LOTS)" change the lots' textures, allowing a more uniform result. You should keep it; delete it only if you prefer to use another texture on lots and plazas.
    c. "Veredas Stgo NAM" folders will only work if you had installed the Network Addon Mod (very recommended); YOU MUST KEEP ONLY ONE FOLDER. Choose the one that corresponds to the driving side your game uses (LHD: on the left as in the United Kingdom, RHD: on the right as in Europe), and to the roads' lines colour (US: yellow lines as in the United States, EU: white lines as in Europe).
  3. Open the folder you had kept: there you'll find one or two more folders with options:
    a. Open the folder called "Rail Options" and delete the files that doesn't match the kind of rail tracks you use: Maxis, PEG or RealRailway (RRW).
    There shall to be just two files, with the same ending.
    b. Only if you have installed EU white lines with the NAM, open "TuLEP Options" folder and delete all the files that doesn't match to the TuLEP textures you installed with the NAM. Most surely you are using Maxis default ones, but make sure it is that way.
    There shall to be just two files, with the same name after the "TuLEP".
  4. Close the folder "z___veredasstgo". If you use DATpacker or other program that packs your plugins, get sure not to pack this folder, unless you are certain no other mod could overwrite this textures.

DEPENDENCIES:

This mod replaces textures without using any dependency. You can extract the textures to use it as dependencies for other creations, but they aren't currently in the right format to do so.

COMPATIBILITY:

This mod cannot be used with any other sidewalk mod, unless you combine it deleting parts of each one; if you know how to do that, you aren't surely reading this instructions.
This mod also don't work with plugins that change some textures that seems non-modified after using. I'm refering particularly to MGB204's Super Light Asphalt AddOns; it changes the GLR textures already modified by this mod, and depending on the loading order, it could result on this mod overwriting MGB's one completely, or his mod changing GLR side textures to ML's Super Light Asphalt, which is lighter and non tiled.
Anyway, is your option to test with this, but you are warned.

This mod has a Creative Commons Attribution - Non Commercial 4.0 International licence, what means you can use all its content directly or creating something derivately, while you give explicit attribution to all previous authors, and while you don't charge for accessing or using this content or a derivate you create of it.

To create the textures, I used a tile texture made by Patrick Hoesly, a dirt texture by dfass12 and a grass one that is on the public domain.

SUPPORT and HELP:

I made a development and support thread on Simtropolis, you can visit it with the following link:


What's New in Version 1.1.1   See Changelog


Released

  • Added SCILT support as a separate file (so you can only download that one), thanks again to MGB!

 

  • Added a 7z file because of it's absurdly small file size (12% of the discompressed size, 20% of the zip file). You'll need 7-Zip to uncompress it: is a free and open source software.
    This one includes the new SCILT file!

Excelent job! A completely wrapped-up mod with really nice textures, and the way you decided to handle wealthification is spot on. 5/5

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from 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 counts! Hardware Upgrades 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

      Hi there,
       
      i am looking for someone who can mod the buoy out of the ferry lines. As i am into Boats and Marina stuff - i am in preparation of turning a lot Boat models into ferry vehicles - so it is possible to simulate kind of lofe 6 action in your citymarina/bay (boats going out and in). But when the buoys appears - you will have the harbour full of them when adding mre and more lines ...
      so dear promodder - do you think it is possible to delete them (buoys)  from the lines ? Alternative could be to make hem smaller to tiny ...
       
      thx

      Okay, so I've been working on this for a few months and I got some positive feedback on the Chat so I decided to ask the community what do YOU think of it?

      Hey everyone. I've been going back and forth with BAT. Learned some techniques and redone some stuff. I've started a few projects but never came bout to finish them. A few months back I started this one that I intend to carry on 'till the end.
      While playing, I've noticed a lack of el-stations over roads and, as such, I decided that that would be my next project.
       
       
      Based on this 19th century parisian berlin station, I decided to model my own version.
      At the moment this is what i've got:

      Here's the render before that railing:
        I'm now working on some access stairs so I can move on to texturing.
      What do you think? Keep in mind this is my very first BAT and its very first presentation to the public

      I'm working with a modded hospital like MaxiMed, or Memorial Hospital.  Whenever I get about 2 million residents, it doesn't matter how many hospitals I build, all of them have the same patient number and capacity.  I used the Ilives reader to jack the capacity up to 999,999, but when I get back into the game, the capacity isn't nearly that high, and the same problem ensues.  
      Any thoughts?

    • Thanks, T Wrecks...rewards are such a giant pain to make! So I usually try and put something daft in to try and compensate...this is my nod to the g20 . As far as I know, the OG doesn't do anything, but there is an ATR file in sim city1. dat  (I think it's 0x49a59e37 - 0x01601900), but it might have been deemed a bit too graphic, or it could just have been like the other dozen or so atr files that aren't used in anything....   Oh, and btw, citybuilder234, the building looks like whatever I tell you it looks like.....
    • It doesn't even look like a convention center. Looks like a building at a community college or a state university.
    • Wow, what a fantastic building! I like the intricate shapes of this one, and the many different areas. There are so many details to take in that it really takes a while to grasp the entire structure. I also agree that there's not much going in in terms of conference centres, so this really fills a gap. Kudos for all the reward modding too - I know that part is pretty tedious und ungratifying work (unless you're some sick masochist ). What I also like is how well the lot complements the building, and it acomplishes that with so few and so simple means. Just a few default overlays and props, and we have a lot that leaves nothing to be desired. The one tiny suggestion I have is that all your recent buildings have had their names (and, in cases like this one, also their function) baked into the model. This is not bad generally because it allows a better visual appearance, but sometimes it limits flexibility a bit. The building in question could totally double as a modern city college, for example, or maybe even as a university (not all modern universities are sitting on a lush campus, after all!), but then there's the "Convention Center" lettering in front. I guess it can be covered with cleverly placed flora props... Fun fact: I never knew that there was an Occupant Group "burning dude maker" - what the...???
