About This File

Disclaimer:

Please feel free to develop your own lots using these lot foundations/retaining walls, but if sharing them, please point to this files as a dependency.

 

Short description:

Some lots, when being placed on slopes, will either raise the floor beneath them, or cut into the hill. In the former case, a lot foundation is being created, in the latter, a retaining wall. Perhaps it's just me, but I’m quite surprised that I’ve only found very few plugins with custom foundations and none at all with retaining walls; therefore, I’ve turned some textures by Maxis or other authors (see below for credits) into lot foundations and retaining walls. This plugin therefore acts as a dependency for plugin developers, providing them with the necessary textures and exemplar files.

 

Dependencies:

As it is a dependency itself, this plugin has no external dependencies.

 

Contained Files:

LotFoundations.dat: Contains textures and exemplar files for lot foundations. Mandatory.

RetainingWalls.dat: Contains textures and exemplar files for retaining walls. Mandatory.

TestLots.dat: This file contains some testing lots that have one texture from both files applied to them, allowing you to test them in-game. These lots do not cost anything and do not have any special features. They are at the bottom of the park menu. If you do not want these lots, you can remove this file safely.

Other than that, this download contains a Readme (unfortunately, due to its size, this time only in English) containing all necessary informations, as well as a tutorial on how to actually switch to another fondation/retaining wall and how to use lots if they are supposed to be placed on slopes.

 

Installation:

Move or copy all files in this archive into the Plugins folder of your copy of Sim City 4. To uninstall, just remove these files.

 

Compatibility:

This plugin should be compatible with all versions of Sim City 4. If you find out that this is not the case, please tell me.

 

Credits:

My special thanks go to all authors that kindly gave me permission to modify and share their work. At the moment, this ist just one person:

  • Mas71: His set of Japanese hill retaining walls surely is part of the plugins that I’m using most frequently. Now, their functionability is even being expanded.

      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.
