Long time player of SC4 (since launch!) and Simtropolis member. I've never had much trouble with installing custom content before, until recently I realized that Catalysts T21 Guardrails for NAM are unzipped and in my plugins folder but don't show up in any menus (or in the plop cheat dropdown menu) while I'm playing. I had the files in their own folder and then tried them in folders such as the ZZ NAM folder but no luck. No idea where to put it or what the files are doing when I boot Sim City. I'm running the most recent NAM and Windows 10.
This problem is also happening with the NY Teams AABT Hells Kitchen Packs 1 & 2. The third pack works fine but the other two don't which I don't understand. Tried putting the files all together in the same folder but still the buildings in packs 1 & 2 won't show up in any menus, including the cheat menu.
ALSO! Does anyone know of a mod to make NAM highway pieces have grass/texture below them on sweeping curves and highway entrances and exits? I've seen it around in some CJ pictures throughout the years but I don't know where to look. I can find some pics if this write up was a little too confusing.
Given purely residential tile population; so all jobs will be non-local to the tile.
How does one estimate what transit infrastructure is needed to provide commuting off the tile?
For example I have one medium tile with a population of 500,000 serviced by 3 HSR links off the tile. Still the HSR links show that they are hitting 300% capacity or greater on the commute.
(1) How does one estimate ultimate residential population? (based on wealth, zoning, and coverage)
(2) How does one pre-build off tile transit infrastructure which is right sized based on the given population?
BTW, NAM 35
Is there anyway to cross monorail over these double networks? I was hoping high monorail could do it but can't find the puzzle piece for it. Would the only way to cross them be to split the EL rail from the road then transition it to subway or GLR? Thanks for any suggestions.
I know the fastest route is always chosen.
Is that the fastest route absent of congestion considerations?
Or is that the fastest route given current traffic conditions?
I ask, because
* I am doing a region.
* I have followed this approach:
** HSR for inter-tile transport.
** Ground rail for inter-tile freight.
** Roads for intra-tile freight and transport. (no roads cross tiles)
** Workers move by bus (and in high density tiles) by subway too.
So, I am thinking of putting in some cool NAM highways like a 10S or 8C. But I am thinking unless the highway connects someplace theoretical faster or I exclude some HSR connections; if it is the fastest route without congestion consider, then either my HSR or highway will sit unused.
So, can I get traffic balanced across major arteries or should I be very careful not to make them parallel? Or will I get traffic because $$$ workers will prefer to drive?
Sorry, I know I sound very confused. I just want some tips before I start laying asphalt.
(see below for what I am talking about)
