Modular Plaza System (MPS)
Before voting, we recommend you download and try out this item of content:
There are some plaza plugins out there on the STEX, even a few modular ones, but with this set, I'm aiming at creating a fully comprehensive modular system of plazas which
- have a variety of different functions,
- are easy to combine,
- and allow adjustment of textures.
This plugin contains a good number of modular lots that will allow you to create your custom plaza, sidewalk, or seawall. Fountains, ponds, benches, seawalls, market stalls, trees – nearly everything is available, I’ll leave it to your experimenting pleasure to find out. Most of them are purely decorational (while having park and landmark effect), only the market stalls will yield a bit money. All lots have been designed in a way that they are rather simple, thereby being able to be combined with each other easily. All lots can be found in the park menu, just below the default Maxis parks.
By default, all lots will use the standard Maxis white pavement texture, however, I’ve included some texture override files that will allow you to customize this plugin in a way that all lots will change their textures. Mainly included are textures fitting with the PedMall puzzle pieces from the NAM, but since I’ve seen many users using plugins that override the PedMall textures, I’ve also included a few extra overrides.
This was originally intended for the Modular Lotting contest last year, but a combination of Burnout, and a graphics card failure meant I was unable to upload it for that contest. Now I'm finally ready to upload this beautiful lot!

These relot files (which is a combination of the commercial relots I've made so far in one download) have been updated and packed together for your convenience into a zipped folder. The previous files have been removed because of this.
Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. However, if you only want one of my relots (e.g. Kmart) then you can delete the other files. However, for an odd reason that I don't know how to work around you will need to keep the 4x3 lot version of Tractor Supply for my version to work.
To plop the Tractor Supply relot, you will need to use the lotplop cheat.
Walmart (building) is a 11x14 lot Walmart (plaza version) is a 13x14 lot Kmart is a 5x6 lot Tractor Supply is a 4x5 lot Strip Mall is a 7x5 lot Dollar Tree is a 3x3 lot Other Dependencies:

By default, Simtropolis uses Round Avatars as of July 2015. While the Round Army may have won the battle when Simtropolis voted, I have a solution for those of you who want square avatars. I have tweaked the CSS code for a modern, sleek square design with smooth edges. I did this to address concerns that the round avatar style cropped too much while addressing the want for a modern look.

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.
* Paeng Texture Pack v103 (updated version Sep 2011!)
* Murimk Props 02, v201 (updated version Sep 2011!)
* BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol01
* BSCBATPropsMattb325 Vol02
* BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol02
* BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01
* BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol02
* Porkie Props Vol 01 and Vol 02
* SPOT (Orientation Helpers)
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).

The Willis Tower, built as and still commonly referred to as Sears Tower, is a 108-story, 1,451-foot (442 m) skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois, United States. At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Center towers in New York to become the tallest building in the world, a title it held for nearly 25 years. The Willis Tower is the second-tallest building in the United States and the 14th-tallest in the world.
The version I chose to re-lot, not well-scaled and lacking night-lighting, but the texture and color was right for re-lotting.
A better scaled version with Maxis night-lighting:
