KOSC Presents: RetailMania - Simgoober's Costco Wholesale

Introduction

Costco Wholesale is the 3rd release from my RetailMania series. This is a set of re-lots for Simgoober's classic Costco Retail BAT aimed at expanding the retail location to include more than just the club warehouse.

Package Overview

These lots are redone to better coincide with their real-life counterparts and feature things like the food court, auto center and gas station. A set of custom gas station textures was created to better emulate the road markings found in actual Costco locations across the United States.

Included in the following package are a set of custom textures and 4 lots: 3 CS$$ growables and 1 CS$$ ploppable landmark with jobs. The ploppable landmark only utilizes one of the 3 possible growable layouts. Both types share the same stats as follows:

If you desire to plop the growables, use the buildingPlop cheat and look for exemplars starting at KOSC_SG_LargeCostcoWithGas (requires ExtraCheats.dll).

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. To uninstall, simply delete the files from your hard drive.

General Stats

The included lots will provide 591 CS$$ jobs. They are available in the following configuration:

  • 2 10x10 left corner, stage 1
  • 1 10x10 right corner, stage 1

Stats were generated with PIM-X, and coincide with the revised model pack version found on SC4D.

Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README.

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder.

I was a little more experimental this time around so the dependency list is a little larger than usual.

Enjoy!

Each one has a very natural layout and the extra dependencies used work perfectly.

The upgrades are out of this world! Ok, maybe not that far....

Seriously, the inclusion of the gas station and the auto center makes this one so much more realistic. Not to mention the parking lot looks so much more lively.

Lovely details, thanks very much for this. I was looking at the old lot not so long ago thinking how sad it looked, this is great

      The fourth pack of restaurant relots are entirely based around Simgoober's models. Some restaurants were included in the packs before, but in the instance you would like a second variant of a model made by someone else I have created an additional relot. 
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. However, if you only want one of my relots just simply delete the other attached files from the download folder.
      If you would like to clear up space in both your landmark menu in game and in your plugin files, you can delete the original lot file. However, for an odd reason that I don't know how to work around you will need to keep the 2x3 original lot version of Buffalo Grill and the 3x3 original lot version of Cracker Barrel.
      Some restaurants will need to be plopped using lotplop to access them.
      Unlike the packs before, these relots will only require a few downloads:
      Simgoober Restaurant Models Simgoober Red Robin Restaurant Simgoober O'Charleys Restaurant and these two lot files found here: CS$$3 2x3 original lot version of Buffalo Grill CS$$2 3x3 original lot version of Cracker Barrel Other Dependencies:
      BSC MEGA Props SG Vol 1 BSC MegaProps CP Vol. 1 BSC Texture Pack Cycledogg Vol. 1 VIP Carpack vol1 SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures 1.0.1 SHK Parking Pack The last thing is that for some of the signs (Perkins, Red Lobster and Outback Steakhouse) you will need to have the prop models and descriptions found in the original lot download.

      The third pack of restaurant relots come once again from various users across the STEX. Some restaurants were included in the first pack, but in the instance you would like a second variant of a model made by someone else I have created an additional relot. 
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. However, if you only want one of my relots just simply delete the other attached files.

      All of these restaurants will appear in the landmark menu.

      5x5 is even more uncommon in my mind especially when it comes to custom content.

      As for the building they're amazing and some of your best work, and the fact they came out at the time CS was at its lowest point in the STEX I think these are a worthy addition.

      Neat idea, but man, this building didn't age well. :/

      Zero7 was a very underated BAT, his texture work here shows why he should be on the pantheon of amazing BATers.

      About 20 mins to render.  Lots of water tiles open for island building.  The beaches are smooth and waterfronts good for building large cities with ports.  The arrangement of tiles is not random but optimized for city organization.  The transitions in elevation follow natural contour lines.  The overall texture is smooth.    This is a good map for a long term project of building a large region of cities connected by sea, land and air.
