Pedestrianised Brick Street
11 Bonus Points
30 TOTAL Points
Here is a simple Pedestrianised Street I have created. It is transit enabled and allows for the growth or plopping of commercial buildings to create a car free commercial area.
This park system combines three updated versions of previous park sets - Monument Park, Urban Gardens and White Sands Park. Mainly I wanted to create the possibility to lay out a good variety of parks, paths and gardens for any type of city - particularly with options for different path textures to be used on the same city tile. You can now have three very distinct park-styles in your city, each with its own character (layout, props, textures) - and you can mix and mingle them any which way you please... and even exchange or unify textures as you desire.
This will enable you to use the paths, prefab parks, ends, transitions, addons and extensions of all three park sets in one glorious citywide park system.
* Three complete parksystems, each with a unique style, textures, props and individual pieces
* A host of possible configurations - Narrow, Wide, Diagonal, Sweeping Curves, Ends, prefab Parks and more
* New park 'Sidings' for realistic-looking transitions to your roads and avenues
* Transitions between textures and/or sidewalks that can adapt to your preferred sidewalk textures and mods
* The ability to exchange or unify the base textures on the fly to suit your taste
* The option to mix and mingle sections of all three sets any which way you want
* All items designed to create extended lawns to be enhanced with MMP flora of your choice
* All items with consistent properties, descriptions and plop helpers, tightly arranged in your menus
* A host of overlay textures and custom props to make your own matching lots
* Peace of mind that future sets and addons will be made to match all of the above
Please note that there is a more in-depth Online Documentation with lots of additional info and many images available as well.

The aim of this overhaul is to 'streamline' the park packs as far as dependencies, general layout and possible variations are concerned. The layout and appearance of the sets have been maintained as much as possible.
Most of the pieces - including the new 'Sidings' - are layed out to give you nice spaces of well-groomed lawn that you can plant with your own choice of flora - bushes, shrubs, flowers and trees from your personal MMP collections.
If you don't want to use any of the sidings, you can safely delete the respective subfile(s).
If you want to exchange or unify any of the base textures, make sure to carefully read the separate instructions included with the 'Texture Changer 205' module (included, but packed separately).

Special thanks go to the NightOwls Murimk and Shokthrpy for creating special custom props, adding to the unique appearance and feeling of these parks. Thanks also to Krio - his Kiosks continue to serve all park-visiting Sims :-)

Mod edit 29th April 2017 - Fixed formatting + dependency links
While browsing through some custom content for SC4, I began to notice that there don't seem to be any stacked highways (like this one). Would creating something along these lines be possible with SC4's technology, or will I have to stick with regular, side-by-side highways?
This is a set of 30 growable R$ Farmhouse lots that are designed to fit in rural settings.
There are two lot sizes - 3x5 and 5x5. The odd lot sizes was intended to ensure that you will have a good chance to grow these lots.
Be sure to use the shift key and measure out the exact lot size you wish (3x5 or 5x5)
Each lot size has an assortment of lots that vary from Stage 1 to 3.
The look of the lots mirror the growth stages, with Stage 1 lots containing 1 or 2 houses, while stage 2 and 3 lots are more developed.
As always, prop families are used exensivly and you will not see the same lot appear twice.
These 'farmhouses' will only grow on the Chicago tile set (growth stages 1-3).

Simply unzip the file and put the entire 'SimCougs R$ Farmhouses' folder in your plugins (don't forget the dependencies).
I know, I know, you are all thinking "Holy stinkin' propbarf Batman!"
Yes, I realize the dependency list is extensive, but I like details on my lots, and these prop and texture packs have been hand-picked to offer the greatest bang for the buck.
As always, prop families were used extensively, so I guarantee you will not find the exact same lot twice (and if you do, you should buy a lotto ticket).
These lots were put together with my CJ 'New SorGun' in mind, so they have more historical/rural feel but they will not look out of place in your rural areas.
These lots look best when used in conjunction with other rural SC4 resources (like farm fields, orchards, etc).
For questions regarding this set, please feel free to visit my Lot Development Thread (SimCoug's Lot Den).
An extra special thanks goes out to krashspeed for allowing me to use and distribute his rural baskebtall hoop prop.
Thanks to OP4 for creating the BLAM blank, which was used as the model for these lots.
Thanks to the great BATers who generously shared their creations - this set would not be possible without them.
Also, thanks for the gang over at SimPeg for all the suggestions and encouragement.
Saw something you liked in someone's screenshot but can't find it? Vaguely remember seeing something once, but you don't know where it is?
Wondering whether or not a plugin of a certain type exists?
This is the thread where you can ask for help finding things.
When asking, please be as descriptive and specific as possible. This can help people to understand what you're looking for.
If possible, screenshots are also encouraged.
This thread is a direct continuation of the original topic, which got too big. Someone might have already been looking for the same thing as you, so checking there first might get you your answer faster.
P.S. If you would like a particular BAT to be made, please request it in the BAT Request Thread.
