    So now we get park relots? It's a great time to be a SimCity 4 user. Welcome to the world of lot editing BTW!
  2. nos.17 Lot Development

    Glad to be of inspiration! Packing things in one download together wasn't my original idea, but after requests to have Zip folders, I guess you can say I took it a step further. I'm amazed at how much of a difference each of us lotters has when it comes to surrounding these wonderful BATs with props. I try to realisticlly size lots according to the BATs itself as having a super big parking lot for one tiny shop makes no sense. I also try to stick with the same props to make it easier for users, but you and others aren't afraid to experiment like this. And that is why having multiple lots from different users is always nice! Each of us has our own style too, so sometimes even the same BAT can get twice the love and can have a different look if users decide to use both lot varations. So, I for one am happy to see you visit some lots that I've already relotted. More options equals better cities. As for a little critique though, I'm not so sure that cars (in the top left McDonald's pic) can make 45 degree turn like that in real life.

    So, in other words, I would be ok to upload the changed model file (after having been tweaked) as part of the download as long as it has the original model listed as a dependency? This uncertainty is why I've shyed away from using scale changes. The other thing is of course that resolution becomes iffy upon changing a BAT's size, which is something I'd like to avoid. And yes I have issues with enlarging or decreasing the size for props.

    Thank you for your kind words. The model tweaker is something I've used personally, but for community lots its hard to justify because not everyone can enlarge models. Plus, some buildings are props which makes it twice as hard to enlarge.

    Speaking of plazas and such, here's another completed one: In case you are wondering why Walgreens here has a different texture, I consider it not to be a part of the plaza so it gets a distinguishable difference.

    This is why scaling is important. Best Buy should be right at the same size of Old Navy or slightly larger. So if you ask why I don't use Best Buy this is why. I specifically try to use models that will work with each other and Best Buy doesn't work with pretty much anything. It is way to small. Another building I take issue is with the slightly oversized existing Dollar General. I feel the Family Dollar is more accurately sized once you establish a lot around it. Thankfully @Ceafus 88 is making a new modern Dollar General for all of us! Hoping Ceafus or another batter may pursue making a new Best Buy if they are willing. Otherwise Best Buy will never make it into one of my plazas. I also would love to see some new strip malls with chains such as Gamestop, GNC, Dollar Tree, Sherwin Williams, Verizon or other cell phone brand, Payless, Shoe Dept, etc. (Endless possibilities really) Sometimes I wish could BAT....

    I'm honored to be a part of the STEX collectors discs for users. Thank you Simtropolis, especially during this difficult time. Thank you very much (on both accounts)

    Things may temporarily slow down for the next few days. I just found out that my grandmother passed away this morning.

    That's a lot of traffic too. Sorry couldn't help myself....

    Three packs in one! Enjoy.
  13. Version 1.0.0


    Packs Twelve, Thirteen and fourteen are all relots of models made by Simgoober. Because all the included models come from the same download source, I've grouped these three relot packs into one. Also included are five bonus lots that were also part of the same LEX download package. When downloading, please know the following: Because this pack uses Simgoober LEX small commercial models, please follow the instructions in the remove list files to get rid of any models and/or lots you may already have. USER BEWARE: While the LEX lots files aren't required for all of my relots, some of my relots will crash the game if you don't have Simgoober's lots downloaded. I apologize for this, but I have no idea how to get around this. Therefore his original lots are a dependency. Lot Sizes: Pack Televe: 1x1 lots: Barber Shop v2 Barber Shop v3 1x2 lots: Barber Shop v1 Photomat Keymaker Java Hut 2x2 lots: Advance Auto Parts Autozone Pawn Shop v1 Pawn Shop v2 Pack Thirteen: 1x2 lots: Boomland Gamestop 2x2 lots: Aquina Signs By Julia Used Books Washland v1 Washland v2 2x3 lots: Dollar Tree 3x3 lots: Woodcraft 3x4 lots: Life Style Pack Fourteen: 1x2 lots: Rural Store Small v1 Rural Store Small v2 Rural Store Small v3 Rural Store Small v4 2x2 lots: Napa Auto v1 Napa Auto v2 3x3 lots: Rural Store Large v1 Rural Store Large v2 Rural Store Large v3 Rural Store Large v4 Bonus Relots: 2x2 lots: Check Cashing Loan Shop Wong Hung Chinese Restaurant 3x2 lots: Treadquarters 3x3 lots: SG Fast Food Dependencies: Simgoober Commercials Models Small Shops Simgoober Commercial Lots Small Shops Other Dependencies: BSC Texture Pack Cycledogg Vol 1 BSC MEGA Props SG Vol 1 SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures 1.0.1 SuperSHK + FA3 Parking Textures SHK Parking Pack
