[MOD Pack] Plop Outside City Box & All my others

LOOKING FOR TESTERS
 

What I have done

I have increased all module limits (Except "Upgradable" buildings, and ones that make no sense to IE uni - might increase dorms tho, Trade Headquarters: Elec, Oil etc)
I have also increased the landmark count to 30. I have tested up to 6 and it seems to work for me.

What needs testing
ALSO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A NEW PLOP TO TEST MAXIMUMS. OLD PLOPS MAY NOT UPDATE

I need you guys to make a game, plop every ploppable you can and max out the modular limits and just play. Report back any roll backs. Also if anyone is willing to possibly sacrifice a non-sandbox city and test the same coniditions before in a non-sandbox game.

 

What do you do?
You can test this with my mod pack installed or without, but its better with as my mod pack allows you to place modules anywhere (plop points become "red" once u plop a certain amount due to too far from main)

Download this file, it is a scripts package so you place it in your SimCity\SimcityUserData\EcoGame\ folder
MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR OLD SCRIPTS PACKAGE IF YOU HAVE CUSTOM MODIFICATIONS TO IT,  IF NOT; TO GET A "FRESH" VERSION, DELETE THE SCRIPTS PACKAGE AND RECONNECT - MAXIS REDOWNLOADS IT AUTOMATICALLY

sry procs but what do you mean exaclty ?

im testing your latest find with vanilla install, wich means i deleted all the previous mods from the folder, saved them somewhere and just installed your script.

Is that what u want us to do for testing ?

 

and btw what is the landmark count ?

Uhm sorry i wasnt clear on that, but it actually doesn't matter on that part. You can have my mod installed OR have it not installed :) I'll clarify that up top.

Landmark count is you know how your cultural items are limited to 0/3? I upped that to 0/30

 

edit: further clarification: My mod just makes it so you can overplop easier as at some point plop points become hard to access naturally off buildings

procs

 

i found a way for you to maybe split up your script modifications into separate packages.

 

I found that copying the latest version of "simcity-scripts_*.package" to the packages folder will allow for plops and such to be enabled.

 

doing this i got my bus street mod to actually be valid for plopping buildings along  and even zone

Ah sweet I have been wondering how I am going to go about maintaining some of my scripts side changes, this should make it much easier each patch. Thanks for the heads up

do you know any techniques in order to avoid glitches when you put down some extra highways around the city ?

 

ps : so far so good, got 1500 students in one school

You mean terrain related glitches? I try to draw them at short bits at a time (the roads that is), seems to prevent the dissapearing roads but still occurs somewhat around intersections/sand areas

yeah terrain related glitches, so frustrating.

The agent behaviour is still so bad, i have like 30 school buses and they keep following each others, same for garbage trucks

 

ps: apparently you can put down unlimited amount of school buses lol , currently 28 buses on one school, ahahaha

FOR EVERYONE TESTING THE SCRIPTS PACK ABOVE:

Do the following:
1. If you do hit a rollback, could you please delete your scripts package in the EcoGame folder, and let the client re-download a fresh copy.

2. Go back to your city, roll it back if you haven't already - load it up and do some changes and then ESCAPE > EXIT TO MAIN MENU > Reload City
3. It should save your changes, just repeat step 2 with a few plops and then let it run in the back for a bit, and then exit while in game and sync ESCAPE > QUIT SIMCITY > let it sync and close itself

--

4. Once you have done the above a few times or even once, you should be able to add back my scripts pack -> plop some extra modules -> exit to main menu -> quit -> go back to step 2 for "rescuing" your city from rollbacks

   4a. Alternatively, once you have restored my scripts and you try to load your city and receive "Unable to load your city" as a message, you can do the following:

     b. Navigate to "origingames\simcity\simcityuserdata\ecogame\", in here you will see folders named "s1xxxxxxx" - these are folders for your City.
     c. Looking at the "Date Modified" you can narrow it down to the city you last worked on (most recent), back up this folder somewhere and delete it
     d. Now load back SimCity with my scripts package and Go to start of Step 4.

--

 

In a city I was getting rollbacks with overloaded modules, I did the above and I can now more or less play it, am performing step 3 atm for the past 10ish minutes after doing a few new plops and saving. Prior to reverting to the original scripts I was getting a rollback a minute or two within loading the city. I also noticed even with the original scripts package if I did a change and did Escape > Quit SimCity and let it Sync that way it would say "Your city was not processing" when trying to sync before closing.

Hmm, it seems I can even continue to overplop my landmarks after deleting your script. I'm gonna try reloading your custom script to eco folder and see what happens

It seems I can even quit through Escape > Quit Simcity > Letting it sync now too.

RE: Landmarks, yep thats because of the one off error on the way they count the limits. We are greater than 3 so they don't really check it if its past

As for terrain glitches. Yes, annoying.

 

If you play with SCTweak by trgs & pygma, then you can set the value to the "Elevated" preset and it'll draw all roads as slightly raised roadways. It helps a TOOOON (ton, not toon).

 

I usually change the first value under "custom" to around -1021 to almost at-grade additional highway roads.

 

Yes, its a tedious workaround, but i hate glitchy looking roads

Working very nicely. Trying it out I felt like i was watching Oprah, you get a garbage truck and you get a garbage truck. 

Now if only SCTweak would work outside the border so I could take my subways there I'd be happy for a while.

Its definitely hundred percent more friendly in sandbox as you can just lay the $%&^! out of everything, play till you hit a rollback then proceed to do the steps above to attempt to "rescue" your city which works pretty well.

Nice nice, thanks for checking it out guys.

 

edit: btw, @imjackd' you don't need to run origin repair even! Just delete the scripts pack in ur ecogame folder (the same name as the one you downloaded above) and maxis will re-download it for ya'! Much faster than repair

    • Ionica - Summer in the City
      By MilitantRadical

      Welcome back to

      ionicabanner1year.jpg

      Well it has been a long time but I am finally ready to start making a return. I still have a lot of things to do before I get Ionica up an running again, but in the meantime I'll share a few new pictures from around the city and from one of the new Zones I've been working on for the past couple of months.

      Special thanks to KonstantinII who has been custom LOTing some BATs for me and sharing them with the rest of Simtropolis.

      Schulmanator: Awesome! An enjoyable tour though some well designed areas. I think a vacation there is in order this summer!

      Thanks. There is a place for you in Ionica anytime. Summer is especially beautiful here.

      ggamgus: Fantastic! :D Sorry about your PC being down... but this is great work, I love it. :D

      Thank you. Finally got it up an running a few months ago. Felt like it would never be fixed.

      KonstantinII: The whole overview is nice. Veritas is so huge I don't even have word to describe it! You provide a good living status for your people. The metropolitan area looks very realistic. Dubai is like nothing compared to this. I think the small houses in Hao Dantong somehow don't fit in with the rest of the city. You don't have to put a big university campus in a crowded city like Veritsas. I use the small buildings of hdorriker's university set. They are compact enough to blend in with the city and provide all it's education needs. Think of them as sub branches of the main university. http://community.sim...esidence-halls/ Most big cities don't have a sprawling university in the middle of the CBD. Just Saying.

      Thanks. I feel Veritas is kind of cluttered. I'm going to have to work on it a little. I want a big university, but you are right that it shouldn't go in Veritas. I have in mind something like Oxford/Harvard/Yale. Throw in some MIT as well.

      Huston: Beautiful montage of your city zones! :) And the photo-editing is great! You really don't make it obvious that your using the default building lots and you really seem to have talent for blending different styles as well which is just remarkable because not many people seem to do it effectively like you have! Again, amazing work.

      Glad you appreciate it Huston. It is all about being selective and picky.

      Titanicbuff: That city is HUGE

      But I'm not compensating for anything.

      RepublicMaster: I love the journey throughout all of Ionica! Your canals are one of the highlights! :D Keep up the great work!

      Thanks, I put a lot of time into those. Glad they stick out to you.

      dubaidude303: Totally stunning! Awesome work :)

      Thanks dude. (I always have to it that way)

      City Builder 9111: Wonderful to see all of it again! Long Live Ionica!

      Thanks for your blessing.

      Hazani Pratama: Great!

      Thanks.

      Terring: Fantastic work man :D

      Thank you.

      Harbin91: Hate to be an air traffic controller there.

      I imagine it could be quite a nightmare. Unless the air traffic is controlled by a super sophisticated AI, yeah - lets just say that is how it works.

      Forthwall: Gargantuan update, had to wait a bit, but it was worth it - 100%. Congrats on 1 year and lets hope for many more :D

      Glad you stuck with it to see it all. Yes, lets hope.

      Hellken: Well, what can I say? This is stunning and fantastic!

      Thank you very much.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • Ionica - Return to Pater
      By MilitantRadical

       

      AYlaJZ6.jpg

      Well it's been a while. Just a small update to get things rolling again.

      I've had a few set backs here and there. My CBD tile Avalon suffered an epic meltdown and it's going to take a while for me to rebuild it. However that gives me the opportunity to make it better than ever before since I'm not constricted by it's original design. I'm trying to make it similar to how it was before with certain key landmarks still in place so it retains that "Avalon look" but otherwise it's going to be a whole new beast.

      For those of you who have followed my CJ over the past couple years Pater and the Blitzball stadium will be quite familiar, I've just made a few changes here and there. I changed the sea walls so that they match some of the adjoining zones and I've also tweaked the parks to make them a bit more symmetrical and less cluttered. Check out my entry called Opening Night Blitz if you want to do a little Before and After comparison or if you are new to this CJ.

      Lord Branham: I am honestly speechless. You have not created a city, but a masterpiece! Your use of buildings, parks, and water is unrivaled! I honestly cannot put in to words how marvelously you have done here. I look forward to your next creation, enjoy your break!

      Thanks Branham, it took a lot of work and I'm glad you appreciate it.

      jmsepe: How the hell do you always make that!!?? Everything is just so atmospherically pleasant! The harbor, the downtown, the roads, gosh I might end up writing an essay just to say how beautiful your city is.

      lol, thanks jmsepe.

      Benedict: Amazing scenes as always - and well done, you're back at number one this week on BTT.

      Ahh, to be king for a day!

      You know you're going something right when you make it to the Best of the Best and #1 on Ben's top 10.

      Belfastsocrates: Absolutely superb CJ! I adore the attention to detail and abundance of custom content and lots. It's incredibly attractive visually and a joy to read through. P.S. I'm also rather thankful I have a fast broadband connection lol :)

      Yeah high bandwidth is key. Unfortunately it is still unavailable in some areas (not mine). Thanks Belfastsocrates.

      KonstantinII: It just only that the city looks a bit unprotected against the sea. What if a tsunami came, and all the city will be ruined. Also it is sad to think of what could happen if someone dropped a bomb on it. It looks beautiful, but a little vulnerable.

      Don't worry, Ionica is well protected from the sea. There are many breakwaters, canals, and pipes that are designed to divert water in case of disasters. Ionica is also very well protected from military attacks. I plan on building some military bases in the future and we also have a tight satellite defense system with particle beam weapons that can take out any incoming enemy aircraft or missiles.

    • The frontiers of nature and the city
      By Terring

      I have noticed that many mayors build homes, shops and anything else in the outermost side of the most outermost roads of the city, forming a concrete wall that separates the nature from the city. I never liked that idea, because it makes the city looks more like a jail. This is why I always keep the outermost side of the outermost road free from any kind of constructions, with only some MMP made parks and picnic fields here and there, in order to build a "bridge" between the city and the environment. Want to explore the local forest or swim to the local lake? It's just one step away.
