Oppie Dutch Windmill Roundabout Filler
Before voting, we recommend you download and try out this item of content:
Originating in Asia, more than 1,000 years ago, and finally coming to Europe in the 12th century AD, windmills, being a versatile machinery, have long played an important role regarding supplying humanity with free power. Nowadays, they have somewhat lost their importance, but sometimes a windmill can get an important landmark reminding your Sims of the past or creating some kind of identity. Therefore, this Dutch windmill, originally created by oppie and unfortunately only released on the German forum of SimCity 4, has been re-lotted to become a filler for the large avenue roundabout. It looks good especially in suburban or industrial environments. It can be found in the park menu, and it has a moderate landmark and park effect.
This is a 100% relot. The content you see has been created by:
- oppie (windmill)
- SimGoober (azaleas, tall shrubs)
I installed NAM version 35 a couple of days ago, and works flawlessly, with little to no problems. However, it seems to be doing something with my roundabouts: the avenue, one-way, and regular road roundabouts seem to completely disappear, and I usually have to bulldoze the whole thing and attempt to rebuild it, with rudimentary results. This is a serious concern for me, as some of my cities are saturated with roundabouts.
I've included a photo below for reference.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
KOSC Presents: Industrial Revolution Mod - Logistic Filler Set 1
This is a set of ploppable filler lots for dirty, manufacturing, and hi-tech industry which are designed to add some logistic support to your industrial areas. The set was designed with IRM in mind and as such, utilizes matching bases and walls from that of the original releases.
This package contains a set of 15 filler lots: 5 for dirty, manufacturing and hi-tech industrial areas. All the lots have props that are highly randomized. Parked trailers and semi cabs will show up in many different sizes and forms and sometimes not even at all.
Lot stats are designed to match the original IRM fillers as closely as possible. This includes positioning indicators to help you align the lots with respect to other things around it. Every lot is nearly neutral, with negligible amounts of pollution, no power/water consumption and are maintenance free. All lots are $5 to bulldoze and are extremely cheap to plop ($5 for I-D, $6 for I-M, $7 for I-HT).
The lots are located in the landmarks menu and clumped together with the original filler sets.
Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder.
Use with the Industrial Revolution Mod and the associated filler sets is highly recommended. If you have the dependencies for those sets, you only need the following.

Avenue Roundabout Fillers
This package contains four avenue roundabout fillers for use in the middle of avenue roundabouts. Six lots are available to choose from.
Note that you must plop the avenue roundabout first, demolish the middle four tiles then build the roundabout filler in the middle of the roundabout.
Stinking and humid, this pedestrian underpass should have been closed down a long time ago, as this place is mostly just used as a hangout for hoodlums, criminals and bums.
This fountain has huge oversized gold and silver coins at the bottom of the fountain. The fountain walls and bottom are all covered in beautiful mosaic patterns.
These are just your average roundabout pieces, nothing special about them, and can be used anywhere and everywhere from downtown areas to suburbs. There are 2 different versions. One with just a curb, grass and signs, and one with rails added.

I re-worked the Traffic Control Center and added 6 more 2x2 Park Menu lots that can be used in the the NAM avenue roundabout. There are 3 more 'Control Tower' themed lots, and 3 different park lots, one is an amusement type using the Maxis Tilt-a-Whirl ride, one a forested rest-place with a gazebo, and the other a decorative grassy park. All the lots use Maxis props and lighting, and have unique Park Menu icons.
All lots have the same stats:
Park Effect: 10 over 10, Landmark Effect: 20 over 10.
Power Consumed: 20 MWh, Water: 10 gph.
Monthly Cost: 50§
Minimal water and air pollution.
The landmark effect is a bit higher as they are feature parks, the 'Control Tower' lots having an imaginary civic function in controlling city traffic. The roundabouts are part of the Network Addon Mod (NAM) which is specialized for transit and traffic networks, but the lots are stand-alone and can be used separately as park lots. If using the NAM bulldoze the default lot in the center of the avenue roundabout and plop one of the 2x2 lots. Any 2x2 lot can be used.
The dependency file is located on SimCity 4 Devotion (SC4D) on the following linked page:
Maxis Lot Editor (LE) Tool and Addons
Alternatively, the file below may be used instead of bldgprop_vol1.dat. It is a better option as it combines access to all the Maxis buildings as props and adds a better hover query showing the lot name.
The above dependencies must be installed in your game application Plugin folder.
To Install this package:
Place the 'Roundabout Variety Pack Lots' folder in the zipfile to the 'SimCity 4\Pulgins' folder in user 'Documents'.
