      An appeal for your support: Help us keep the STEX up and running   11/06/2015

      Hi Community, this is a public appeal for help to keep the STEX up and running! We currently need your help to offset some of our operational costs and upgrades! As you know, we've always relied on community donations to help keep the website running. And while all our admins and moderators volunteer their time to managing the site and community, we do have modest expenses that we need to cover each month which includes our server hosting fees, software and support licenses, etc. So lately, we've experienced a slump with donations and we're beginning to feel the pinch! We would really appreciate your support by way of a donation of any amount in order to keep the site up and running. Of course, as always, we'll send you a gift with a minimum donation as a Thank You. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me!  Sincerely; Dirktator & The Admins PS. Thank you to those who have stepped up and donated the last couple weeks -- we really appreciate it!

      We're still in the middle of updating things, please bear with us! Some things may appear strange or not quite working right - we're working on it!

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

821 posts in this topic

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 ?

Share this post


Link to post

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

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

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.

    • Leaving Venemont
      By rakowozz
      My mayor's term has come to an end here. My first and last post about Venemont, a city in which I can say I did invest some quality planning (most of the time ). Where it paid off to invest in transport solutions - subway especially. But also where mod incompatibility (haven't played since before AD) made it impossible to go on now...
       

      What could be considered the post card picture of Venemont, above, is taken from the Longpine TV Tower region. Where exuberant nature overlooks the city and also the very navigable Moselle river.

      Get familiarized with the neighborhoods: Longpine is East of Iron Plains, on the top right.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Central Area: National Avenue

      Here's where modern development happened first. National Avenue, easily identifiable with its 12 lanes, is the main artery into the city, crossed by one of Venemont's two Diverging Diamond Interchanges http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=453911819
       

      Residential meets business and traditional commerce in the vicinity of Faun Quarter, home of the iconic Avalon Hotel and key to connecting the city center to Federation Square, across the river.
       
       

      View from Faun Quarter.
       

      Tranquil neighborhood of Penedo by Saint Michael Avenue, named after the church, which is part of a large property that extends itself up until Faun Quarter. Despite the general low attendance and religiousness, the city has many historical religious buildings.
       
       

      Venemont relies heavily on its subway system:
      Line 1, in green and orange, consists of a circular line with express and local trains in both orientations. And Line 2, for instance, goes uphill and connects Bentley Park to the western part of town, which includes the financial district of Sheffield Avenue.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Heading West: Financial District

      The part of town with the highest concentration of serious people!
      Sheffield Avenue is the name of this region, but the avenue itself is further right. The expressway on the image is integrated to the main highway system, with a direct connection to National Avenue, Federation Square and industrial areas.

      Sheffield Avenue leads us to this vital roundabout. It's one of the main accesses to the densest residential areas of the city: Venemont Park.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Residential High-rises: the Plateau

      The majority of the western neighborhoods are located on a large plateau. One can access its center from the expressway above.

      The other side - looking at the financial district from an overpass in the plateau region.

      An intersection is seen above, giving drivers access to the neighborhoods of Loften and Venemont Park.

      Venemont Park is the city's second largest park, several (!) square meters behind Bentley Park. But that doesn't diminish its importance: an incredible amount of community events happen here. It's also where you'll find dozens of bus lines as means of transportation.

      Lavender Street during the day.

      Aerial view with the Loften neighborhood on the center.

      The busy Loften Station leads passengers from Line 3 (a continuation of Line 2) to Line 5, an access to the Old Town district.
       
       
       
       
      Old Town and Goodbye
       

      The old Venemont Municipal Stadium still stands, right on the border of the Old Town and Venemont Park.

      The Basilica is the center of this district, surrounded by tourists and wealthy residences in this distant part of town. Yes, the architecture can be somewhat conflicting! Building regulations have been very loose in Venemont for a while now...

      Travel Agency shot.

      But it's time to jump to the opposite side of town. If you're still reading any of the captions, you probably saw me going on about Federation Square.
       
      This is it. A bohemian place with less noise during the day and more noise during the night. And, of course, offering a great view of other nice parts of town!
       
       
       

      From there, I'll take the highway up to the Longpine forests and find my next destination.

      Thanks for reading!
    • SMFP-Spanish Median Fillers Pack
      By peperodriguez2710
      Spanish Median Fillers Pack (SMFP) by Peperodriguez2710 - English
      Hi, because some members asked me to release a filler pack for S RHW networks that I did for myself, here it is!
      It's made to be like the medians found all around Spain, especially like the ones found in the arid areas of Castile and the Meseta, known as secarrales, so all the pieces with Weeds and the pieces with Bushes have dry-looking weeds like the vegetation found there. Because I know that you may not want to see that dry weeds, I used seasonal props that only appear on summer. All pieces have reflecting posts.
      The pack consists of 18 fillers located in the Misc. Transport menu, with three different types of vegetation: Weeds, Bushes and Flowers, and two types of barriers: Guardrails and Concrete separators. There are pieces with freeway lighting too, but it's merely cosmetic so them don't light actually. Then there are some turning area pieces and some ending pieces. Almost all lots are neutral, except the turning area radar lots, that provide some money because of the fines.
      The lots are classified with letters:
      W: Fillers with only dry weeds on summer
      B: Fillers with bushes and dry weeds on summer
      F: Fillers with flowers
      G: Fillers with guardrails
      C: Fillers with concrete dividers
      L: Fillers with freeway lighting
      Because of it was made for personal use, there's a lot of dependencies:

      Pack Español de Fillers para Medianas (SMFP) por Peperodriguez2710 - Español
      Hola, como algunos miembros me pidieron que pusiera en el STEX mi pack de fillers para las redes RHW S que me creé para mí, ¡y aquí están!
      Los he creado para que sean similares a las medianas que se encuentran a los largo y ancho de España, especialmente los encontrados en las áreas áridas de Castilla y la Meseta, conocidas como secarrales, por lo que todas las piezas con hierbajos utilizan matojos secos como los encontrados allí. Como sé que probablemente alguien no quiere ver esos hierbajos, he utilizado props estacionales que sólo aparecen en verano. Todas las piezas tienen reflectores.
      El pack consiste en 18 fillers localizados en el menú de Transporte Misceláneo, con tres tipos diferentes de vegetación: Weeds (hierbajos), Bushes (arbustos) y Flowers (flores), y dos tipos de barreras: Guardrails (guardarrailes) y Concrete separators (separadores de hormigón). Hay piezas con farolas, pero son decorativas y no iluminan realmente. También hay piezas para áreas de giro y para piezas finales. Casi todos los lots son neutrales, excepto los lots con radar, que dan algo de dinero por las multas.
      Los lots se clasifican con letras:
      W: Fillers con hierbajos secos en verano
      B: Fillers con arbustos y hierbajos secos en verano
      F: Fillers con flores
      G: Fillers con guardarrailes
      C: Fillers con separadores de hormigón
      L: Fillers con farolas
