SPAM - Single & Diagonal Ploppable Fields

SimCity Mayors can be tricky customers to work with at the best of times, especially if they 'absolutely want' say a tomato field in a certain place for a certain reason. The answer of course is for a friendly lotter to whip up a quick 1x1 lot. You would then be forgiven for thinking that everyone would now be happy... but ooh noo... if only life were so simple!

To compound matters further, then of course, inevitably, an even really, really, fussier mayor will come along that now demands that he absolutely wants to put his tomato rows on an irregularly shaped field, ...but on a transparent tile, thank you very much, if you please, because let's face it the the dreaded diagonal zig zag look of base textures is to be absolutely avoided... because well... that looks really really naff... even though SimCity custom content developers have been trying for years to overcome this particular visual scourge.

Can these demands be satisfied? Should we even attempt to satisfy them?

Well yes.. and yes if it suits us to and if we feel like it... then we would probably come up with something like this:

Crop Singles 1x1 (8 lots)
Crop Diagonals 1x1 (10 lots)
Tree Singles 1x1 (8 lots)
Tree Diagonals 1x1 (8 lots)

Important Note:
When plopping some of seasonal crops (eg: wheat, rye, barley) they will not appear for a full game year seasonal cycle. The seasonal crop singles will plop with only a base texture, and the seasonal diagonal crops will appear to be initially invisible, (without props) until the first seasonal cycle is complete. To speed up the process, simply put the game on cheetah speed (ctrl - 3) and the crops will appear and then cycle as normal.

These lots are ideal for planting certain types of crops in specific areas, making small repairs to zoned and grown crop fields, and also provides a quick fix for the 'no access zot' problem that affects some variable shaped lot (VSL) zones.

Menu - Park (at or towards the end)
plop cost - $1-8
Bulldoze - $1
Pollution - 2|1|0|0

      Now showing on a STEX or PLEX near you. This SC4.lot file landing strip, is a small yet busy functional airport, designed for your MTP communities and will replace the Maxis Small Landing Strip.   All costs and stats remain the same as its Maxis replacement.   To install unzip and place the lot file in your Plug-ins folder.   To un-install simply delete the file from your plug-in folder.   Features include:   Improved taxi-ways with runway lighting. MTP / Rural themed textures, flora and props. Timed aircraft props to simulate aircraft movement. Different day and night timed people and cars.  Security Guards will come on and off shift during  the day and night at the main security checkpoint. The security gate on the far side of the airport will line up with the gates on the MTP Econo-Airbase, to provide a paved runway for the cash-strapped MTP airforce. This airport still includes the Skydiving, Crop Dusting and Stunt Plane "U-Drive it" planes.   Dependencies: PEG-MTP Super Pack

      For the growable version you need to zone high density zones.
      The ploppable version is functional just as the growable and is located in the "Landmarks" menu.
      Installation Instructions:
      Extract the file and copy the folder to your SimCity 4 Plugins folder (usually MyDocuments/SimCity 4/Plugins).
      The main folder contains the model file, the read-me and a picture of the BAT.
      Never delete the .sc4model file since it contains the building model itself.
      The three different lots are organized in sub-folders, keep them all or choose the ones you want to use in the game. All three lots can be used at the same time.
      Available to download for DarkNite (DN) and Maxis night (MN), DarkNite recommended.
      The DarkNite version requires SimFox's Day and Nite Mod, download here.
      Only use either the MaxisNite or the DarkNite version, you cannot use both at the same time!

      City Link Transport Hub, by Mattb325.
      This is a purely fictional 1980's style building designed as a transport interchange suitable for downtown and other built-up areas.
      The podium floors of this building act as a rail, subway, bus, underground park & ride and pedestrian interchange. It also allows freight trains to pass through the station. It has a total capacity of 165,000 passengers so is perfect for big cities.
      The two towers are also functional and provide 1,600 jobs across all wealth levels.
      In game, this building is found in the Miscellaneous Transport Menu (about half-way down near the subway line).
      Once placed, drag two rail lines right through the building and connect the front and back of the lot to the road network using street tiles. 
      To activate the subway component of this building, simply drag the subway line anywhere into the lot (note: as this is a multifuctional lot that there is no traditional 'stub' that you have to connect to as seen in other subway buildings) and of course then connect it to other subway stations within your city. 
      Similarly if you wish to activate the bus component of the building, simply place a bus stop somewhere else on your city tile. 
      If you don't wish to use any of the subway, rail or bus features, that's fine, simply don't connect that particular feauture to the lot (you may end up with the advisors nagging about 'mass transit 101' but you can safely ignore their wailing). 
      At a minimum however, the building must be connected to the road, water and power networks or it will abandon. (N.B. I have put the 'bleeding obvious' in here as some twit recently told me that batters now have to provide "customer service" even when they are no longer active......as if providing all of this for free or your enjoyment isn't enough...lowest common denominator, here we come...yeah, baby  ) 
      This is the first in a series of multi-function transport lots that I will be releasing shortly. As this one doesn't involve NAM elevated networks and is more of a visual alternative to the ever-popular ninja boulevard kiosk, I have decided to release it separately from the upcoming pack.
      Lastly, a ****huge***** thankyou to RSC204/MGB204 who provided the modding for this file: you can be certain that the stats and values behave according to NAM methodologies.

      This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
      You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File!
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. 
      Either: (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) *recommended* OR (http://gizmo.aplaceforwebsite.com/index.php) OR Mashty Nite Mod: (http://hide-inoki.com/bbs/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=764)
      NB: External sites may require you to create an account (or log in with said account) prior to downloading. See, this is more customer service so you don't have to think 

      The parking textures you see in some of the images are adjacent to the lot and are used as fillers. The main parking provided by this lot is the large underground area as well as a little bit at the back.
      To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins:
      *BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1180)
      *BSC Textures Vol01 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90)
      NB: External sites may require you to create an account (or log in with said account) prior to downloading. See, this is more customer service so you don't have to think 
      *Network Addon Mod V36 (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/26793-network-addon-mod-NAM-for-windows-installer/).
      I have tested this in Vanilla mode without the NAM, and it basically works as intended. But honestly, if you intend to use this without the NAM, everyone will judge you harshly 
      *SC4Fix: third-party patches (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/30883-sc4fix-third-party-patches-for-sc4/). If you use the NAM or even play the game, you will want this file. Enough said :-)

      To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.
