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!

I guess that canal represents the Mapocho river, I've been there last month, nice city, really liked it, your subway is by far the best in South America. :)

It is heavily based on the Mapocho, though it is in fact a torrent, not a river, so the real one carries much less water, barely forming a stream on the center of the 30 meters wide canal. The obvious exception is one or two days in a five year lapse, when heavy rains multiply the flow, filling the otherwise overdimensioned infrastructure.

Thanks for the appreciation, we santiaguinos are very critical of our city, so is good to have some unbiased feedback. It would be great that in your next visit, you take the time to know the new metro lines, currently being constructed.

I checked them, what amazed me the most as being Argentinian is how fast you build, an uber driver told us the part of the highway that goes under the Mapocho took aprox 4/5 years to be built, I don't have to tell how many issues we have here with the whole corrupted system but just for you to have an idea, the H line, is the newest line in the city, every 5 stations took around 6 to 7 years and I mean just a few stations, no the whole line for its being built in instalments or so it seems... but you built the whole line in the less time so yes, chapeau to you! I like Santiago, what I'd not like is being unable to watch the sky as we do here due to the polution you have, I know that is part of one of the many perks of developing a city in a valley, however, Santiago is changing fast and for the good, I really liked what I saw, we stayed at Providencia.

      This package contains texture overrides which will add Moonlight's Super Light Asphalt sidewalks to Tram in Street and a Rural GLR set compatible with Magneto's Super Light Asphalt Mod. This mod is designed to be used as an AddOn for Magneto's Super Light Asphalt Mod:
      Although you can use this mod as a stand-alone mod also if you prefer.

      The included textures are all Euro versions, both LHD/RHD options can be selected from.
      Load Order

      To ensure these files load after the NAM, please ensure you copy the dat files in the zip file into the same folder as Magneto's Super Light Asphalt Mod. For stand alone users, please check the readme for further instructions. Also note it will need to load after any mod that changes the textures of Tram in Streets. Choose only the LHD or RHD file where both exist, and again refer to the readme for more specific instructions.
      Dependencies

      NONE

      Notes:

      Just a quick thank you to Magneto for his work on bringing the Super Light Asphalt mod to so much of the NAM.

      SimCity 4 is a really fun game (funniest in the whole series in my opinion) BUT there's just one thing that kinda gets to me. I don't really like how the whole map is a grid and all the cities have to be shaped as squares. I have a whole regions that's supposed to be a country, but I want to draw state-lines/borders around it from the city view (blame my OCD for caring so much about that) 
      I'm just curious, does anyone have a method of doing this?
      What i'm planning on doing is using the sign/label tool and adding a bunch of dashes: '-' around to make it look like a state line, but does anyone think there's a better way of doing this?

      I subscribed to the find it! mod shortly after release, and for a while it worked fine. However, in the last few days of playing the search box no longer appears in my game, just the list of all assets, props, etc. (Same as it would if you selected the "all" tab, none of which no longer appear either) I thought that maybe a mod was causing it, so I deactivated all my mods and reactivated them 20 at a time, while testing on a new city. Problem is, even with all my mods and assets enabled, the mod works fine on a new city, but not on my current city. I've tried looking for answers, but can't seem to find any reason why the mod won't work on my particular city. Does anyone know or have any ideas as to what might be causing this. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Boom! Another great HT here! Hope Mr Tsvirkunov will open a new factory soon in my cities! Thanks for sharing your stuff!
    • Nice idea. Should anyone have preferences or favourite buildings they recall, it would certainly help narrow down the total. Especially with the filter list on the Wayback, the accompanying preview images are there at least to give some visual indication for anyone searching. If there really are 10,000 buildings, I suppose it's not even worth uploading 10% of them given the likely inconsistencies with quality.
    • It may be worth setting up some kind of "I would like ..." topic .... people can go thru the old exchange and point out to Cori the ones that should be retrieved ... it should end up a more manageable list
    • That could be arranged. But since these are legacy files, I don't think it matters too much either way since credit would be given. If Cori would like to continue uploading these (as intended following Dirk's approval), it may be nice for her to receive the occasional Rep as a by-product reward for retrieving, packaging and uploading them here. With hundreds if not thousands of them, it'd require a mammoth effort after all. (Should the quality of content resemble anything to the old SC4 EA exchange, I'm guessing it's not worth restoring all of them.)
    • Very nice, too bad the Grass Textures dont match my Terrain Mod
