Paeng's Parks Revisited 2.05

About This File

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

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).

Possibly the best set of modular parks for SC4. Sure there are a few dependencies, but look at what you get in return. Ticks all my boxes, totally indispensable.

      Hello,
      If you search "cities skylines" on YouTube, Twitch or similar, you'll get tons of new videos regarding to the game. In the other hand, "SimCity 4" only results a few new videos, mostly created by @Haljackey. Similarly, if search "cities skylines" on comments on videos about city simulators, you'll get tons of results. Otherwise, there are few people commenting about SC4. I agree that C:S is the best city builders yet, but C:S isn't perfect. First, C:S can only runs properly on computers with dedicated graphics. We can't deny that most people will choose ultrabooks (or similar) instead of bulky gaming laptops and unfortunately, they mostly only have an Intel HD/UHD or low-end Nvidia MX series (Vega not counted due to its new appearance). That's because ultrabooks gives the user portability, long battery live, good screen, good keyboard, fast storage (for higher end ones) and while this is overlooked, some people don't need gaming design and its related element (RGBs etc). While some ultrabooks have some sort of dedicated graphics, they usually can only be found on 15" or wider models. And we can't ignore laws of physics, slim & light laptops often suffer the so-called "thermal throttling", meaning the performance will drop to some level, even lower than the base performance. Yes, we could build a PC, but we also can't deny the fact that RAM & GPU prices ($1 roughly Rp14,000) only recently relieved due to the crypto craze. Second, C:S suffer some limitations, especially when the city size is too big to handle by the game. For example, some services don't work when the city size is about 300K due to the agent limitation. Third, with all DLCs bought, you will shell out more than $50 in normal circumstances. That's not cheap plus the PC build/laptop you need.
      So, we need to do something with the SimCity 4 ecosystem. There are lots of problems regarding the ecosystem. First, there are some modding limitations due to its old engine, for instance you can't add new menu structures (not items) by using .dat. You need to use (still not completely uncovered) .dlls and it requires some coding and of course, some legal issues. Second, its limitation making hard for mods to be user-friendly, including the NAM. For instance, in the ideal game you can make 6-lane avenue by just selecting that network and drag as you expect. But in reality, you need to place the "starter piece" of that "network" (technically pseudo-network) and drag it using roads. That's confuses new players who tried to make 6-lane avenue and even expert ones. Third, there are too many mods that again, confuses everyone. For instance, if you want a census building then you need to install RippleJet's (RJ) Census Repository and then you need to install 4 (as I know) dependencies and it's time consuming. And, this is the final example, the well-known CAM Starter Pack. "Experts" gives instructions that the Starter Pack should be installed by the new players, in reality that's not true. Then, the players needs to download dependencies that in total approximately over than 250 MB. And then, the players get punished due to the necessity to install all of the dependencies and configure them. Next, the players need to download other mods as well, according to most recommendations, its over 500 MB again (in reality, it's just needing 13 other mods at 380 MB including NAM and the RJ's Census Repo + deps) and the mods need to be installed and set up if any. And finally, the players will be get a working SimCity 4. This is giving us how broken the ecosystem.
      If you have opinions and responses for the problem, feel free to send replies below. Sorry for my bad grammar and spelling due to I'm not native English speaker. Thanks!

      Too much SC4 custom content gets lost on the web as websites come and go. Most Kazuki's content seems lost, except lots that have been salvaged on the STEX : Kazuki RedBrickPlaza Lots 1.0, Kazuki Road Divider Park Lots 1.0 and, relotted by nos17, his street stalls . Here is the original.
      Disclaimer : those are kazuki's only, I am only  saving them for the community.
      --------------
      NB : I have slightly amended Kazuki's own readmes to delete the unreadable parts in Japanese.

      I made one of these parks over a year ago, never uploaded it here. Now I'm finally releasing a small set of these.
       
      These are 5 slightly different parks, all 1x1 size (+ overhanging parts). Plop cost $100, maintain cost $8.
       
      To install: just unzip and place the folder with files in your Plugins directory. No dependencies.
       
      **
      A minor problem was reported by member HandsOff: "If you plop then plop them on already zoned but unoccupied lots, the zoning does not disappear. It is only visible when you lay subways."
       
      So plop these parks only on un-zoned land .
