Hi Guys and Gals
I'm considering on creating a couple of lots.
Right now just in the initial planning stage.
I have a few questions for all of you like good idea or if it's even possible.
Not sure if even I create them if I will upload them or not, that depends on how they work out.
What I'm planning:
they will be residential growable lots that are residential communities. I know you can't make ploppable residential lots that work for long anyway.
I'm not sure as the size of the lots at the moment probably NOT small. I'm guessing right now there will be anywhere from 12-24 homes on them. More than likely R$ and R$$. Single and two story type homes.
Anyone that wants to chime in to tell me to run away fast or give me any pointers please do.
Now for the questions that I have at this moment:
1. Is this idea possible? As in getting the lot modded to work like a real residential community. If so then how difficult? Beginner, novice, pro?
2. I assume I would start out with a blank bldg? I see blank models available in PIM-X, is there a certain blank I would need to use?
3. How big of a lot can I create in PIM-X?
4. If I create them I would at the moment keep them to myself except for one or two beta testers. So would this be something that people would like to see?
So let me know what you all think!
This is a lot with multiple Creightview condos-buildings and a extra long parking lot on it. I have made it with loteditor. This is the first file I update, so I hope it works. It should be growable on a 6x6 lot (use control when making the lot). If you have the extra cheat buildingplop you are able to plop it too.

I need to know how to prepare my industry and civic infrastructure to handle medium-density residential buildings. I have zoned all residential areas medium from the beginning, but I haven't got water coverage. I know that some medium-density is going to build when I do place water coverage. Here's an overview of the city: Res: 500 - Commercial: 740 - Industry: more than 1000.
This pack contains five models based on real life houses found throughout Santiago, Chile. I've included a variety of different architectural styles corresponding to different decades.
- Lot sizes: 1x1, 1x2, 2x2, 1x3.
- Stages: 1, 2, 3 and 4.
- Tileset: all
- Standard Maxis Nightlights.
More than one dependency this time. Please note that you have to be registered in order to download the files at the LEX (I guess most of you already are).
BSC MEGA Props CP Vol01 -- really popular, most of you should already have this.
BSC MEGA Props CP Vol 02 -- again, quite popular.
LBT Mega Prop Pack vol.01 -- same as the last two. Also, you should already have this if you've downloaded my previous files.
Romualdillo Props VOL01 -- this should be the only dependency that you probably don't have yet. I also suggest checking out Romualdillo's incredibly detailed and superb spanish houses here.
You can follow my work here. Enjoy!
