KOSC presents: SuperSHK+ FA3 Parking Textures

Introduction

Happy New Year! Need some irregularity in your lotting? SuperSHK is back with a plus and a whole assortment of FA3-aligned textures for you to play with.

Overview

This set contains at total of 482 new overlay textures.

SuperSHK+ takes the original set and adds quite a bit of additional support for FA3 angled pathways. Additionally, there are a host of extra textures included meant to patch some missing areas from the first set.

Details

These textures are broken into 4 DATs. The included resource guide offers a slightly more detailed look at the different texture options offered here.

DAT 1 - Curbs: Contains an assortment of FA3 aligned curb pieces and connectors.

DAT 2 - Parking Transitions: Contains transitions and intersections between different parking types with FA3 curbs.

DAT 3 - Pseudo-FA3 (PFA3): Contains a set of FA3 aligned orthogonal parking spaces and a few basic transitions.

DAT 4 - Extras: Adds medians and additional support for S-Curves from the original set.

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. These should show up under the overlay texture section in the lot editor and PIM-X. 

Dependencies

NONE. This set is a dependency. Lotters that want to take full advantage of this set will need the SHK Parking Pack and base set:

Credit to shokthrpy for the original SHK set. Additional thanks goes out to rsc204 & rivit for their invaluable work with GoFSH (and Bender) and texture replacement -  this set would not be possible without their tools.

Now this is overengineering done right! :P But seriously, I can't wait to see how you and other lotters will put these parking lots to great use. They are particularly suitable for low-rise commercial services such as big-box retailers, shopping malls, and large chain restaurants IMO, but I can also see them being used for holiday resorts, theme parks, sports facilities, etc.

Thank you for this great New Year's present and keep 'em coming! :)

    • Thx for the Advice mgb, but i have all the Stuff installed.   But i get Brown Boxes with Peg Streams, below a Pic with and without Free Waters installed    
    • To everyone with the brown boxes issue, you've clearly completely misunderstood the point of this "patch". It does NOT include any water/pond/streams, it simply adjusts the properties of existing mods, such that more space for MMPs is provided. As such, if you failed to read the instructions and don't have the original mods the patch is designed for, it simply won't work. Those files are not technically dependencies, because this file is totally pointless if you don't have such content. Indeed there are 3 lots included in the package, but again these are not designed to work stand-alone without the relevant PEG content being in your plugins folder either.
    • Everyone plays the game differently, so whilst that low value might work fine for your style of play, when releasing mods it's best to support the widest range of setups possible. Example 1:
      So imagine a player with a huge city with maybe millions of sims. Their Bus routes and Subway routes are going to have very high capacities. In such a scenario, not only will lower figures not cut it, but they can break the game. Because if just one stop in the system reaches over 4x the capacity or thereabouts, the network itself will stop working. This is a game bug in essence. Example 2:
      Now let's imagine another player with a small town of 10k residents, say 1k sims use your bus stop. That number would actually be very high for a small town, so clearly a 3k capacity is more than sufficient here, because up to 12k sims could use the stop before any problems occured, and there aren't 12k sims living there. Although bear in mind sims commute, so theoretically you can have more use a stop than the population of a tile. So with a low capacity bus stop, in Example 1 we could end up with very big problems quite easily. But in Example 2 it's unlikely. But, if we give the stop a high capacity, both examples would have little chance of problems. You might think though, "but I don't need this extra capacity" or "it feels like cheating". Well it's really not, because having a super-high capacity won't make more sims use the stop. It just prevents a rather nasty bug from occurring. As such, I would recommended updating the capacities in-line with the previously linked article. But it's not an "urgent fix" or something you need to feel bad about. Just a sensible update to prevent potential problems for users.
