KOSC Presents: Diego Del Llano Growables - 2017 Pack One

Introduction

This is set of growable, high-density lots made from Diego Del Llano's BATs that were released in 2017. The objective of this set is to provide growable alternatives to the ploppable landmarks in the original release for a more traditional gaming experience. While ploppable are amazing in their own right, it doesn't quite allow for one to experience the feeling of zoning a plot and having that shiny new tower pop up.

Package Overview

4/14 IMPORTANT NOTE - this file currently only works with the DarkNite versions, and NOT MaxisNite - an update will be rolled out soon to accomodate the MaxisNite buildings

Included in the following package are a set of growables for all Diego Del Llano's 2017 releases (excluding the Loop Postal Station building in the Federal Center Chicago set). A couple of the buildings have different occupant versions to satisfy different demand groups.

There are TWO versions of the package you can download: Vanilla and CAMThe vanilla version has all of the larger buildings capped at stage 8, with capacities that do not exceed 7500. For those that use the Colossus Addon Mod, the larger buildings extend all the way up to stage 15 and boast much higher capacities, up to around 11000.

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

      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

      Alighieri Apartments, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Alighieri apartments is a fictional creation in the modern international style. 
      These apartments are 14 floors high and designed to fit into tight inner-city 2x2 blocks. It will work as a stand-alone apartment building as well as in a wall to wall environment. It also provides a little bit of much needed competition to the HKABT/Bixel apartments which have few competitors in the 2x2 space.
      Like many inner-city apartment buildings, the ground floor is devoted to retail space.
      The tower area has four apartments per floor, each apartment has a corner balcony; the street-facing apartments are larger (3 bedrooms) and have floor-to-ceiling glass in the lounge area. 
      The rear apartments are 2 bedrooms each. There is no penthouse suite, instead residents enjoy a roof-top communal pool. Basement parking rounds out inner-city convenience.
      This is a growable R§§ apartment on a 2x2 lot on all tilesets.
      ---------------------------------------
      STATS R§§:
      Lot size :                   2x2 
      Growth Stage:         7 (Medium & High Density Zoning)
      Bulldoze Cost:         § 807
      Capacity Satisfied:  R§ 1,106, R§§ 612
      Pollution:                  5 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage )
      Pollution Radius:    5/6/0
      Power Consumed:  9 Mwh
      Water Consumed:   24 Gal/Month
      Building Style:          Houston/Euro/New York/Chicago
      Occupant Group:     Medium Wealth Residential Building

      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
      You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File!
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) 
      ---------------------------------------
      DEPENDENCIES:
      This file requires no external dependencies.
      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      Sadly, due to the complaints from a few members of the community, I continue to have to make the parking texture 'disclaimer' on all of my releases. 
      This building is designed for inner-city areas. With the exception of the US mid-west where there has been massive, continued economic downturn and a flight to suburbia, no inner city area in the world has acres of parking: land is simply too expensive. 
      This building has underground parking for residents only and visitors are expected to arrive by either public transport or park their car on the street; therefore no parking textures are included in the lot. 
      If, in the ingame screen shots, there appears to be a parking texture used, it is purely coincidental and merely belongs to an adjacent lot that is not part of this download. 
      If you want acres of parking or desire a different parking lot texture, then use the lot editor to make that change.
      ---------------------------------------
      To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

      WanWan Apartments, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by the old Won Won Apartments on the Asian Tileset in SC3000, Wan Wan apartments have that real retro vibe of 1980's apartment buildings.
      These are tall apartment complexes come in at 12 floors to capture the views and are solidly constructed from brick and coloured concrete infill panels.
      Each building also has underground parking, there are two apartments on the ground floor, four apartments per floor from floors 1 through 9, and the four apartments on 11th and 12th floor apartments are 2 story penthouses with a lovely sun-terrace to lie down and soak up the rays before the 1990's rolled around and everyone was told not to sun-bake.
      This version is not a 100% accurate copy, but it is true to the language of the architectural style of the original building and this is simply one that I made for myself, but have decided to share with the community.
      The lot and models come in a few variations: all of them are growable R§§ iterations and there are both orthogonal - and - because it's a SC3000 building, a 45 degree version as well. The larger 6x6 and 8x8 lots are landscaped, and to help these grow, use the CTRL key while zoning. All lots are designed to grow on the Houston and Euro tilesets only.
      ---------------------------------------
      STATS R§§ Orthogonal:
      Lot size :                   2x2 & 2x3
      Growth Stage:          6 & 7 (Medium & High Density Zoning)
      Bulldoze Cost:         §697
      Capacity Satisfied:  R§ 929, R§§ 514
      Pollution:                  4 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage )
      Pollution Radius:     5/6/0
      Power Consumed:   7 Mwh
      Water Consumed:    20 Gal/Month
      Building Style:          Houston/Euro
      Occupant Group:     Medium Wealth Residential Building

      STATS R§§ DIAGONAL:
      Lot size :                   6x6 and 8x8. Use the CTRL Key while zoning to get the correct lot size.
      Growth Stage:         4 & 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning)
      Bulldoze Cost:         §697
      Capacity Satisfied:  R§ 2,502, R§§ 1,382
      Pollution:                  11 (Air)/ 5 (Water)/ 5 (Garbage )
      Pollution Radius:     5/6/0
