Please Note: As explained here, due to limitations in the Gallery software, some Challenge submissions may include a larger version of the same image (e.g. for mosaics).
Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.
Orthodox Fun Park
The first image from my latest project comes from the Orthodox Township of Prowersville. This fun park was built in 1998 as the answer to Taylorsville's legendary "Great Times" amusement park. It has a retail park to the north of it and a planned residential neighborhood to its east. Ever since the Hotels have been built in 2005, Orthodox Fun Park has been pulling in 12 Million Sterlings per year.
No dependencies. All lots are 5x5 ploppables in the Reward menu, available at the start, are road connectable and transit enabled, capacity: 100. Maxis Lighting.
This project is inspired by Simcity Version 1 (Classic) now called 'Micropolis' developed in the 1980's and released as open source. The last preview is an image of a session of playing the Java version of Micropolis that is freely downloadable from github.com.
In Micropolis there are only three same-sized squares for RCI zoning. I've used the reward system in SC4 to lot 5 of the 6 largest commercial buildings, 2 of the largest high-wealth residential, 1 of the largest high-tech industrial buildings, and 1 agricultural building. All the lots are the same area size like in Micropolis.
The queries are the same queries used for the buildings as grown in the game --the associated reward will only be indicated in the reward menu as the item is selected and plopped.
The lots contain code for both the reward and the replacement building so apparently the lots provide the benefits of the reward as well as the operation of the building. The intent of making these lots is providing access to the buildings so I haven't evaluated the reward function, but the queries do report capacity usage for the replaced building --no 'goofy stat' for the reward.
Previews of Buildings Featuring Terrain Mods (see Preview.html in zip file)

Descriptions of the 9, 5x5 Large RCI and 1 Civic Building are included in the zip file:
Colons separate the building name, building type, and which reward I used for the lot. The buildings appear in the reward menu with a unique menu icon, the building and reward names, and the description. The Opera House, Farmer's Market and Tourist Trap rewards also appear in the Parks menu.
• Van Prooijen Trading: Commercial: Convention Center
• Ong Condos: Residential: Major Art Museum

I've given this lot project the name MicroProject and made a logo for identifying the lots in the Reward and Parks menus. Each lot appears near the original reward, with a building icon and the logo overlay. The original reward is not replaced. The re-lots are available at the start of a new city.

The Seaport Re-lot file is based on the stage 3 seaport as saved from the Maxis Lot Editor. I could not save and load either stage 1 or 2. The maximum capacity was realized for stage 1 in-game but no upgrade was automated.
There are 2 lots in this zip file. One lot is the seaport at stage 3 as is, and the 2nd lot is the expanded version I made using the Lot Editor. The user interface of both lots report about 50% efficiency, but neither reports any usage of capacity.
According to the BSC Seaport Controller "If your seaport funding is 100%, and the usage exceeds 95%, the seaports will upgrade on their own."
BSC Seaport Development Project Version 3.1
However, with the PEG CDK Seaport Controller also installed, no such effect was realized. As well, prior to installing either the BSC or PEG mods, the seaport did not upgrade automatically.
Following is a list of resources used in the creation of the preview images:
Drunken Water Mods, The Blues and Greys. In HD!
PEG CDK3 SP Container Seaport 110
Lighthouse 2x2 Lot Pack 1.0.1
Stanley Seawalls 1.0.0
BSC Ploppable Ships (v1.0)
Container Carrier 1
PEG CDK3 SP Ploppable Ships Pack 1 1
Authentic Shipping Containers 1.0
Neither of the 2 lots in this zip file replace the in-game stage 1 seaport and will appear in the seaport menu with their own unique icons. The stage 1 seaport should be used as the primary seaport for the purpose of moving freight. The stage 3 lots are intended more for the purpose of creating an active and visually complex seaport.
Includes 2 Garages, 3 Bus Stations 3 Parking Lots, a Bus Loop, 1x1 filler lot and a Taxi Stand. All lots found in the Transportation Menu indicated with color-coded icons.
Dependency: SHK Parking Pack Required on all lots in this zip-file download for the base textures, lighting, many of the props, and most vehicles.

To install copy and paste the Modular Asphalt Parking Bus and Taxi Ver. 2.0 folder into your User\Documents \SimCity 4\Plugins folder. Move or delete the text/html files and Previews folder as these should not be stored in the Plugins folder.
This is a relot of the Transamerica Pyramid by ed_diaz (2004). The 7x7 lot size, specifications and menu description are maintained as is. The building and lot are Maxis-lighted and the lot is transit and network enabled.
The model file is in the original zip package which includes landmark and ploppble versions.
To make this relot work you only need the model file:
Put the model file into this Transamerica Pyramid Relot folder with the 0A0_Transamerica Pyramid Landmark_ReLot_a4f2be46 lot file, and then into the plugins folder. (delete this readme.txt)
If you want to have the fountains working at nite for a dazzling effect of light and splashing water download Peg's 24/7 Mod below:
For reference to the building, its place, specs and history, visit the above linked file location.
• Elongated shape to extend the radius of park and landmark effects, set at 90% for both over 20 tiles.
• Illumination of area in Maxis night-lighting, adding contrast to night scenery.
• Blinking light, pigeons, sparkle effects and people animations.
• Original sculpture made from Maxis rock block props.
• Custom query based on tutorials and a sample lot file by Equinox and Daeley (2005) found on Simtropolis and SC4 Devotion,
• Addition to Park Menu ploppables, no external dependencies.
• Note: the 'Bulbs Changed' Goofy Stat. is not programmed, its simply a static number written on the menu graphic.
Place the 'Promenade_of_Light_Plaza_3x16.SC4Lot' file in 'username'~/Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. Start SC4 and look for the lot's icon in the Parks Menu.
The zip now contains 2 independent lots so:
For the working fountain plaza also place the 'Promenade_Fountains_Plaza_3x16.SC4Lot' in the same folder, or choose either one as each one stands alone.
