      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      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

By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings?

Yes. I would recommend a small texture (64x64 or 128x188) and a low tri count (below 100).

The pillar looks great!

Thanks for the info.

Here we go, fixed the gap where the pillar meets the bigger darker concrete pillar., and added a bit of a shadow there.

Also the LOD is done I think, haven't tested ingame yet. Need to go to sleep now.

Wow looks great! Feels weird to see so much detail on a pillar since I'm used to really plain ones (aren't we all):P Can't wait to see what else you're going to make!

I have use for these, I'll be testing them as soon as my European ISP connects my PC back to the world.

I think enough time has passed and I have a question so I can bump the thread.

So I'd like to create a ramp like this:

But the texture doesn't follow the road direction:

Can it be fixed somehow, or would a mod to change the texture direction with a click be possible?

I'm sure that a mod would be possible, but who will create it? Maybe the NExt team knows why that happens and how it can be fixed.

With some finnicking and rebuilding, it's possible to make it all face the same direction, it seems there is some other property of a segment that says what direction the road was drawn in (independent from the oneway road direction). I'm not a modder though.

Looks pretty awesome, the tiling breaks a bit, but at least it's in the same direction. Don't mind the vibrant dev textures on the ramp.

This is what happens if you draw all in the same direction using only one segment drawing (less than 12 units each drawing).

Wow! Those pillars are awesome! I love the detail and textures. Thumbs up. :thumb:

Thanks!

Next the 6cell over-canal stack for 3lane highways (no japan road textures on those roads yet though)

Would be nice if anybody could download and test them and show me how it looks in your city, with your settings and luts etc.

The attachment includes the two recent stacks.

Is it common in Japan that highways are build over canals? Interesting idea

I'm not sure if it's common but they exist, i saw them on street view and thought it looked really cool.

Here are some examples I found in Tokyo:

Update: very WIP but i think you can figure out what it will be:

Real estate in Japan is pretty tight, especially in Downtown Tokyo.  I can affirm with driving on some of the expressways there are part going over some of the older canals.  Zoning laws are not in favor towards optimal highway builds for engineers there.  However, the more modern approach these days for Japanese is tunnelling.

Also, glad to see elevated ETC toll booths.

Great work on those models and textures! It's nice to see that Roads United is getting some attention from parts of the world other than the US :P

how did you put that toolbooth on a elevated road, isnit?

It's just a floating building, you actually put it "on" a road on the ground 1cell gap away from the elevated road.

ok, what mod is this search tool?

Okay, I think I assume too much. Added explanation and links to the description:

To access in-game, use search box mod, search for "toll": 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=540758804

Requires anarchy to place: (Sharp Junction Angles ctrl+A) 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=553184329

For 3lane one way use network extensions: 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=478820060

I recommend not connecting the middle lane with traffic manager: 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=583429740

Place 1cell away beside a 12m/24m high 4cell piece of 3lane one way road. 
Use Traffic manager lane connector and don't connect the middle lane. 

 

Update: I'm trying to make a ground/0m version, but the stuff below 0 gets that building base texture, even on a ground level forced elevated road, any way to disable that?

      After I subscribe to an asset the game goes back to the home screen and I have to go back to the workshop again.  It accepts the asset but does not stay on the workshop screen.  It's a new pc.  The game runs fine.  Can you help?  Thanks.

      It seems to me that all the 1:1 scaled buildings are either low density or landmarks. I cannot find properly scaled "medium density" buildings (or even the equivalent of default high density in SC4). My 1:1 scale housing projects based of the works of Le Corbusier are about the same height as L5 high density housing though the height of floors is properly scaled with low density housing. I understand that CO couldn't make properly scaled high density buildings within 32x32 meter footprints but there is such a wealth of buildings on the workshop that you would think enough people would ignore the unrealistic scale. Perhaps Soviets were undernourished and lived in cramped apartments with low ceilings but I figure that buildings were merely downscaled to fit in with default high density buildings.
       
      Could someone help me out by at least pointing me in the direction of 1:1 scale Ploppable RICO buildings?

      I have become more familiar in 3Ds Max and even gained enough expertise in it over the past few months that I think my skill level is approaching a point where I think I am good enough to start making mods for Cities: Skylines. I started practicing in 3DsMax to make brick rowhouses for the game Banished but since I am more interested in Cities: Skylines now and my buildings were practice so I can mod C:S, I decided to start a new project of making buildings just for Cities: Skylines.
       
      I whipped this building up over the course of 4-7 hours today. It would have taken only 1 or 2 hours had I not made a ton of mistakes that required me to start from the beginning.

      It will normally grow on a 4 tile wide x 3 tile deep lot with the ability to grow on a 4x4 lot with a backyard.
      FYI, I plan on making a ColorMask for the outer 2 rowhouses so it could have more variety (bright red, pink, tan, and whitewashed).
       
      Please give me feedback to help me improve the quality of my creations.
       
       
      Thank you!

      Hi, started learning how to do basic 3dmodelling & custom assets for skylines about a week ago, so i'm bound to face problems.
      My issue now is that I made a tiny 2 x 1 building but the editor will always auto expand it to 2x4 regardless of what size i choose. I could scale my model bigger to fit a 3x2 lot but that would be too big compared to the IRL version. I really want to stay within the 2x1 size. If someone could help/explain to me what i'm doing wrong i'd really appreciate it.

      With thousands of assets already on the workshop keeping up to date is never easy, and missing some gems is often very likely.
      This new series is aimed to reduce this factor as we look at the most recently released assets on the workshop, giving them a quick in game review, sparking some inspiration for your next build.
      Every Thursday - Keep tuned!
