      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'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

      Chat is back...   06/22/2017

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

Btw the older Burger King need a relot for a long time! I've  redownload my game and downloaded mod etc again! And the Burger King lot that it's on I didn't get Bc most bks have drive thurs! And with the jack in box could you make the drive Thur go around the building? TBH I don't like how it is like how a lot of taco bells are!

Papa johns need more parking please. Need more gas station Relots also. What about Auto Zone Game Stop done by simgoober and Family Dollar and a Dollar General? The Dollar General is on Other website tho! 

I can only do so much at one time! :golly:

I'll see what I can do about Papa John's. I was trying to keep it as a small 2x2 lot. Maybe I can make it a 2x3.

Plan on doing Family Dollar eventually along with the other BLAM things (including Advance Auto Parts).

I'm uncertain about the other ones you mentioned as they are off-site and they aren't that realistically sized.  Dollar General is ok, but just tad too large for my liking.

Unfortunately, I will not be changing that. The building BAT includes the Jack in the Box sign and therefore the building isn't easy to move around. And because of the size of the building (when compared to the lot) I will not make the lot any bigger. As it is I feel like it the relot is a little whacky and there isn't a whole lot I can do it about it.

you can always learn to use Lot Editor and do it yourself. *:idea:

Also @RRetail glad you found those Hardees/Carl's Jr lots, those things were pretty obscure.

You nailed the first point - those variations look pretty good! Yeah, Ceafus' buildings are the 3ds ones. 3dsmax models have much higher visual fidelity compared to their gmax counterparts. Colors are also a distinguishing factor, as I've noticed gmax models with overly bright colors tend to really stand out, while 3ds ones generally have a more muted palette. 

If you're gunning for supremely high quality flora, take a look at girafe's HD offeringsThere's evergreen and seasonal props available to use from those sets.

On a side note, I think one thing that's been deceiving my eyes is how low resolution some of the models look in your screenshots. Do you happen to have the "City Detail" graphical setting turned down by any chance?

Thanks for the suggestion, though I think I'll stick with using CP and or Simgoober trees/floral. I don't see how any of those that will work for me.

I haven't messed around with any graphical settings, so I assume it is just at default. Maybe its the size of the screenshot pictures?

More restaurants for those hungry sims.

Note: I have moved my Olive Garden and Tim Hortons relots into this pack for convenience.

I also did end up redoing Jack in the Box from scratch hence the reason it is different.

Already in the pack 3 state of mind as you can see below. PM me and I may possibly look into at least some of them for either in the 3rd or possibly even a 4th pack.

I have added an option to download a plaza addon to the BLAM Walmart in a 1.0.1 version. Both versions (Walmart with a plaza and one without) will remain. The only catch is that two additional dependencies will be needed for the plaza version.

Also these have been added to the STEX:

For those who know, I have received a request to datapack my relots so that they are just one download. It's not a bad idea; I just have no idea how to do this. If you would like to see my files done this way, please help me to understand how to do pack them into one download. Otherwise, they will stay as they are.

Two things to differentiate:

1. To datpack is to consolidate the different parts of your creations on one usable file. For the sake of posterior modifications and customisations, I would recommend not to datpack them.

2. Another is to distribute them on a single zip file, an archiver that is not readable for the game (users will have to uncompress them). This makes your files easier to acquire and manage, and is highly recommendable.

Yes, the second thing is what I want. Sorry for the confusion.

Edit: So, um, how do you distribute them on a single zip file?

      See my parallel thread over at Simpeg. RIP Simpeg.  
      Recently I acquired all of Bobbo662's fantastic unreleased BATs and their unfinished lots (I cannot thank him enough). Unfortunately, due to RL issues, he was forced to quit and leave most of his amazing bats without decent lots. After talking with him, he was generous enough to just hand them all over to me to relot and upload. Anyways, after a new computer and some Lot Editor problems, I have finally "finished" some lots enough to show here. Recently, my first thread at Simpeg has not gotten as much feedback as I am hoping so I will start this thread here. Well...without further ado...I present...

      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.

      "Wawa" is a Lenni Lenape Indian word for the Canada Goose that was found in the Delaware Valley, hence it's use in the logo. Wawa offers a large fresh food selection, including built-to-Order Hoagies, fresh-brewed coffee, quality dairy products and Wawa brand juices and teas. All Wawa stores also feature a wide selection of ready-to-go salads, fresh fruits and produce.
      This download also includes a Car Show to include in your cities. A feature originally suggested by @Hotwheeler, the Car Show will provide a moderate YIMBY effect for your cities. While it looks best placed next to the Wawa Gas Station (as in the picture), it can also be plopped anywhere on its own.
