About This File

This BAT is loosely based on a real school in Bourke Street Surry Hills and acts a combined older style elementary and high school with an expanded school coverage radius.

Description
During the middle of the 19th Century, the NSW government embarked on a massive school building program in order to relieve the pressures of substandard and over-crowded schools; the problem being particularly chronic in inner city Sydney.
This building, completed in 1884, was designed as a model school to replace the previous temporary buildings which had housed students since the early 1800s.

It is modelled (a la mode) in the Italianate Palace Style and construction costs were unparalleled.

Designed as both a junior and senior school, 19thCentury sensibilities abound: high narrow windows to allow abundant light and airflow, but high enough to stop indolent daydreaming; a small bell tower to announce class times with a single peal and separate entrances for boys and girls in the front senior wing.

The larger junior wing (Kindergarten to Year 6) has a single cupola dome to mark the entrance for all students. The time and weather-worn motto of the school is carved in sandstone on each of the front Gable projections: “VERITATE VERITUTE”

This school still stands and has served the children of Surry Hills, Strawberry Hill, Redfern, Moore Park and Waterloo for over 120 years.

      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.


      OVERVIEW

      * 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.


      DEPENDENCIES

      * 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)


      DEVELOPER NOTES

      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).

      MTP abcvs Education School Pack
      After many years of languishing at the bottom of the PEGPROD production queue, the long awaited, highly anticipated and highly vaunted MTP abcvs Education Pack is here! Well by one guy at least anyway…

      In a rare and blinding display of international trans-pacific US/NZ cooperation and collective brilliance, that has taken the best part of a year, Pegasus and abcvs.. (who?!), have joined together to bring you these pixilated productions of esteemed educational perfection!

      There comes a time in every MTP community when the ‘Old School House’ is simply not big enough to cater for all the little Sims that need to be edumacated to make them all intelegin enteligen intellyligent  brainy and smart, so they can then go work in Big John’s Mine, the PEG-MTP Saw Mill, the NBVC Lumber Yard or for the ever so slightly prissy and those who object to the smell of engine oil, infused with saw dust, the PEG-MTP Corner Starbucks.

      This pack contains five re-styled Maxis education lots…

      · The MTP Grade School

      · The MTP Large Grade School

      · The MTP High School

      · The MTP Large High School

      · The MTP Community College


      Features of the lots include:

      * More rural looking Mountain Theme Pack styled Education Facilities, to suit virtually any sized mountain or rural themed tile.

      * Custom MTP themed query windows.

      * Extended coverage for the Grade School, High School, Large Grade School and Large High School.

      * Car parks have been moved to the front of the lots for more realistic road access. Apparently this has annoyed the crap out of Pegasus for years.

      * If the PEG One Flag Many Nations mod is installed the flag of your choice will be present on the Grade Schools. Without the OFMN mod installed, no flag will be displayed.

      * All costs remain the same as their Maxis default versions.

      * These re-styled education lots were designed to compliment the Mountain Theme Pack but have been engineered to have a minimal dependence on it. These lots can be used in any non-urban setting / city without the need to move the required files in and out of the plugins folder when switching between different city types or styles.
      ** These lots require installation of the MTP SuperPack

      **Optional - One Flag Many Nations Mod
      -Cori Edit: Fixed formatting.

      For what I’m trying to accomplish, as far as I can tell, I should be using either SC4 Tool or the iLive Reader. I would like to be able to edit certain parameters of buildings in the game. For example, changing the radius for police, fire, education, etc. I would also like to change how much power is generated from power plants, how much water is generated by water pumps and towers, etc. Basically do everything (hopefully) that can be done in SimCity 3000 here.
       
      I’ve tried both SC4 Tool and iLive Reader but can’t seem to find the buildings I’m searching for. I’m truly starting from scratch and need some assistance on either of these programs. Any help is greatly appreciated!
