About This File

Jenquai Alchemy, by Mattb325.
---------------------------------------

Another Maxis Hi-tech ( stalwart gets a 21st Century facelift.

Jenquai goes from that small half underground building which steps back from the lot (and is accessed via a sort of draw-bridge) to a shiny, new and much larger facility. Just like the previous building which had sunken areas and elevated walkways, this new IHT factory provides a lovely, leafy sunken courtyard for employees to take lunch as well as a raised walkway connecting the two buildings.

This version is a Hi-Tech growable anchor 6x6 lot (use the CTRL key when zoning to ensure the correct lot size) and will not interfere with any Maxis blockers or re-lots of the original Jenquai Alchemy.

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 or Desc files!

If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod.

---------------------------------------
A NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:

Sadly, if there appears to be any parking used in the content picture as either part of, or adjacent to the custom content in question, it has now come to the ridiculous scenario of having to write a blurb about parking textures given yet more comments received form only one or two users (comments which incidentally are only made on my lots - I note that other active Batters use Maxis parking lots all the time and receive no negative comments, such is the double-standard). Please note that I will use whatever parking textures I feel like on my lots. If you want something else, then use the lot editor.

User Feedback

This is totally off topic - but some people (like me) may find it interesting. The first universities (Bologna, Paris etc ...) founded in the middle ages were under control of the church and they did allow only certain sciences. 'Occultism' had a very different meaning from today - all science unwanted by religion was 'occultism'.

But students were curious and had many question beyond what church would allow to teach. And so were some professors. F.e. on Isaac Newton you may read sometimes that he was addicted on occult science and astrology - but those weren't separated from objective science like they are today as there was only religion deciding what is 'good science' and what is 'bad science'.

So professors and students who wanted to do some 'bad science' (according to church) founded secret circles. As they were on risk to be traced and killed - to become a member of those secret science circles you had to go through several rituals and had to be absolutely closemouthed - as doing forbidden natural science wasn't just a game but a major crime. From those scientifc circles arouse the secret societies you may know - the Rosicrucian, the Fremaison, The 'Illuminati'. Most known about them are myths arising from this situation - regarded as an evil by church it became popular to think they are Satanists or something like this and doing 'occult rites' and it may be today they believe themselves they are some kind of cultists - but they didn't start this way, they started as some kind of scientifc clubs and the rest was made up by catholic curch.  

The Rosicrucians f.e. were a small academic circle where they tried to find out what is a product of chemistry and what not. They tried to create 'soul' by combining chemical elements and lifeforms, also they tried to create 'universial medicines' and to make gold from other, cheaper materials. Their results and observations they had to keep secret so they invented terms only members of the circle would undertand - 'the philosopher's stone' is a well known example, which stands for the process of turning lesser materials into higher materials. Also this helped to create the myth of secret knowledge of secret societies. But apart from being decoded in a metaphorical and quite poetic language it's not much secret. Or maybe it's secret but still not really exciting and mostly worthless in todays world and the (most probably) arabic word 'Al-chemy' (~ bringing liquids into form) turned into a subject for myths and fantasy novells in 19th century.

Thanks @Fantozzi - I had actually toyed with the idea of making it in the shape of one of the alchemists' signs which also frequently crossed into the astrological signs. This was too obvious (and plus Jenquai is a maxis reference to another type of computer game), so instead I simplified the shape which is reminiscent of the astrological 'Uranus' on plan; hence the building is in two parts with a connecting walkway and circular central tanks *:P

      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

      Gertrude Apartments, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      A fictional development, based on a new build in the San Francisco, CA area, Gertrude apartments was created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ apartment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game.
      This apartment building uses a series of massings and elevations to provide abundant natural light and cross ventilation to each of the generously sized apartments. This design also ensures that most terraces are private and that all but one is overlooked from neighbouring flats.
      This apartment building is 8 floors high (excluding the mechanical penthouse area). The lower floors contain a number of 2 & 3 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartments, while the upper floors are reserved for spacious 3-4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartments. 
      The 7th and 8th floor has only one 'sky home' with a spacious, private sun terrace and generous planter boxes.
      The communal grounds planting is of low maintenance conifers on well-lit, compact grounds making these lots a great option in all density areas. 
      The apartments are presented in two paint schemes: a deep, coffee colored scheme which looks great in dense, urban areas and a paler blue/green scheme inspired by the coast. Both are in prop families and will grow at random.
      These apartments are presented in 5 lot options: a 4x4, a 3x4, a 4x3, a 4x2 and a 2x4 lot. They grow on all tilesets and all have the same stats.
      These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities.

      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      As these models contain garaged underground parking, the lots do not come with parking textures.

If you wish to add acres of parking or change the type of concrete textures, please use the lot editor to do so.

      This lot contains 45 lots (growable CS$ and CS$). Instead of uploading these all separately, I decided to do them all together in one mega pack to make downloading easier.
      These BATs were originally created by Bobbo662 (aka B62). Unfortunately, due to real life circumstances, he was unable to finish these lots. He graciously handed his work over to me to finish and subsequently upload for yall.
      For comments/feedback/critique/praise visit my lot thread or drop me a pm. I'd be happy to help. Also, visit the website for full sized images.

      SFBT High Enthalpy Wind Tunnel by Mathe Man
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      After wall-to-wall (W2W) industry has been catered for, it's time to take care of regular industry. This time around, I'll begin with high-tech industry, and from there will work my way "down the ranks", through modern manufacturing and generic manufacturing back to brick factories with old-style manufacturing and, finally, dirty industry. With this series (it will be long!) I hope to bring some more variety to your industrial areas, and I hope I can also drag some old and not so common BATs back into the spotlight this way.
      For this first upload, I have picked a small and rather old BAT, but a pretty unique one: SFBT's High Enthalpy Wind Tunnel modeled by Mathe Man. Although small, I think the building is nice because you can get a glimpse of what's inside, and it's rather unusual in shape as well.
      Since all Maxis lots contained in the IRM Base Pack could optionally be used with toroca's Industrial Jobs Quadrupler, this download is offered in two versions: a regular one for those who prefer the default job numbers, and a quadrupler-compatible version for those who prefer using the modified stats.
      The .sc4desc files for the regular version will look like this: IRM_[Filename].sc4desc
      The .sc4desc files for the quadrupler version will look like this: IRM_[Filename]_x4.sc4desc
      After downloading, simply delete the file of the version you don't want to use. If you leave both in your plugins, the quadrupler version will most probably override the default version.
      The default version of the building will provide 20 I-HT jobs, the quadrupler version 80 I-HT jobs.
      The following lots are included in this download:
      3x3, Stage 1 4x2, Stage 1 For those of you who like to play with day and night view, the building used on this lot is compatible with the following night light mode(s):
      Maxis Night with gradual day/night cycle: YES Maxis Night with static day or night: YES DarkNite* with static day or night: YES *DarkNite requires SimFox' Day and Nite Modd (or a similar darkening mod) to be installed in your plugins. 

      2 - USE
       
      If you extract this archive to your root plugins folder, it should create a folder IRM\IRM Expansion\[NAME OF BAT], where [NAME OF BAT] represents the name of this download item. Within that folder, you will find all the game-relevant files and a sub-folder containing the HTML readme and some screenshot(s).
       
      If you no longer wish to use this download, proceed as follows:
      Bulldoze all lots pertaining to this download Save all the cities and exit the game when you're done bulldozing Remove the associated files from your plugins folder Hint: Just to be sure, I recommend moving the undesired files somewhere else and doing some checks before you delete them permanently. This way, if it turns out you forgot to bulldoze something, you can add it back in temporarily until you're done.
       
       
      3 - DEPENDENCIES
       
      IRM Base Pack with all its dependencies - while these lots will technically work, they are meant to tie into the IRM. They may look out of place and show unexpected behaviour if used independently. Since this is an extension to the IRM, all the dependencies of the original pack still apply. If you have them in place, you can download every single growable IRM and IRM W2W lot I have ever made and will never have to download any additional packs for props and textures used on the lot. SFBT Hochenthalpie-Windkanal von Mathe Man - you'll also need the original upload of the BAT to see the building(s). Only the .sc4model file is required. Any .sc4desc and .sc4lot files can be removed. NOTE: For any dependency hosted at SC4Devotion (SC4D in short), you must be registered on that site and logged into the site's download area, the BSC File Exchange, in order to see the download button. Please bear in mind that there are separate logins for the forums and for the file exchange. For those of you who may still be unfamiliar with the site: SC4D is another major SimCity community with lots of unique content, so you will not regret making an account there.

    • @Bipin Hi! Could you update the dependency links on this upload (and any other uploads of yours, which had dependencies on the sadly-no-existing-anymore SIMPEG page)? Thanks in advance! - Tyberius
    • Since this is growable, what size lot do I zone for this building to grow? (Ex. 2x2, 3x3, etc.?) Anyone who can answer this I'd appreciate it. 
    • This reminds me of the old one up by my house. The new Walmart got built next door in a big open area with the newer super center building, the old one now is a   Tractor supply Co., Dollar Tree and a little  Hibbett sports.
