About This File



My legendary retaining wall BATs are back! Completely remodelled and retextured, the CURB series takes a new lease on life with concrete/grey asphalt plaza textures similar to those found on many BATs and official Maxis content. Furthermore, the models have been completely rebuilt, now with sidewalk-width walk areas around the new street-level gardens above the retaining walls.


For those new to this BAT series, this set includes basic components required to build your sunken highway with CURB. One of these pieces is an underbridge lot (left and right halves are two BATs), with the other being a 15m slope, slope-conforming component that is plopped in the middle of two FARRHW ramps in a fashion similar to below:






Just be sure to make sure the top RHW-4 level is constantly 15m high, and plop the pieces where they fit. You'll notice it's pretty self explanatory. As a dependency, you'll want to download http://tinyurl.com/CURBdependency If problems persist, contact me, or watch this promotional video to see what your end result should be like:





I hope you enjoy the product! Lot's of work and many a weekend went into this.

      Welcome to the BAT - Getting Started / FAQ / Resources / Help thread. 
      This new thread replaces all of the functions of the previous BAT - Mega FAQ, BAT - Troubleshooting & General Discussion, 3ds Max - Troubleshooting & General Discussion, and BAT4Max V.5 threads, and adds the Getting Started guide.  
      This forum's moderators are: @Jasoncw@JP Schriefer@MushyMushy@T Wrecks@Toothless Stitch@elavery@Terring
      Below are links to the different sections of this thread.
      1. Getting Started Guide
      This guide will... guide... you through installing all of the programs needed in order to BAT. (under construction)
      2. FAQ (2.A. Export Problems, 2.B. Preview Render Problems, 2.C. General Problems, 2.D Installation Problems)
      Answers to the most frequently asked BAT questions. If you have a question, check here first. 
      3. Resources
      A list of links which you might find useful. 
      4. Help
      If you need help, and you weren't able to find a solution to your problem in the FAQ, you can post about your problem in this thread and someone will try to help you. Over time, an archive of questions and answers will develop, which you will be able to browse through to see if someone else has already had the same problem as you. This thread is the right place to post questions for anything BAT related.

      First of all let me say I'm new to this forum and to SimCity 4. I installed NAM to my computer with SimCity 4. Now while I was making the highways for the city that I'm working on, I noticed that I couldn't connect an exit from the RHW to lets say an avenue or a regular road or even a street.
      So basically I'm stuck at this stage. Any help on where I can find something to connect this to a road would be appreciated. Or is there any way to make an exit with the NAM (with the default ground or elevated highway, there was the option of ramps and that could've been easily connected to the roads. With RHW, I don't seem to find any option like that.)

      For those who use multiple versions of 3dsMax for the past years, sometimes you may get confused about what version was your file done in. I found this tiny program called 3DS Max File Version that lets you know just that. It is pretty straight forwards.
      The program is hosted in Scriptspot.com

      Hello everyone!
      The SC4 BAT - Open Discussion, and Lot Editor and Plug-In Manager forums are in the process of being merged! The new forum is named the SC4 BAT & Lot Workshop.
      We believe this will have several benefits:
      In the last few years, there has been a great growth in lotting and lot development threads. Yet those development threads are tucked away into a subforum. This will bring more visibility to lot development threads, and it will make it easier for people to visit their favorite development threads, whether they're BATing or lotting threads. BATing and lotting exist in the same custom content continuum. Every BATer also has to do lotting tasks. Many lotters BAT their own props. Some people make substantial BATs with elaborate lots, which blur the line of whether it's a lotting project or a BATing project. Having everyone together might even inspire more collaboration! The forums are slower nowadays, and combining the two forums would make one single more vibrant forum. What will happen to the old lot forum? First, every single lot development thread, no matter how big or small, will be moved here, along with any other substantial threads. They will automatically be sorted chronologically with the BAT threads.
      In the near future the old lotting forum and the threads remaining within it will stay where it is, and if there's a particular thread that you feel should be moved over, you can ask a moderator either through pm or posting in this thread, and we can move it. Then, the old lotting forum will be moved to an archival section of the website. At that point, if you remember a thread that you'd like to be moved, you can still ask a moderator to find and move it over for you. We're not moving every single thread because most of the threads in the lotting forum are "quick question" type threads, which would drown out the BAT and lot development threads.
      While we're merging forums, we'll also be reorganizing the stickies.
      "BAT - Getting Started Guide / FAQ / Resources / Help" consolidates the existing Mega FAQ thread, the troubleshooting threads, plus a new comprehensive getting started guide (still under construction). It's pretty ridiculous that there are three different threads for posting BAT problems in. The old troubleshooting threads are still valuable resources and they are linked to in the new thread. But while they have a decade's worth of BAT problems and solutions, a lot of it is outdated, and the thread overall is cumbersome. As questions and answers are posted to this new thread, it will become a more relevant and easier to browse body of knowledge. 
      For lotting, a new sticky will be made in the same spirit. In the meantime, you can find links to the old lot forum stickies in the spoiler tag below:
      I don't know how long it will take us to get everything into its final state, but hopefully it won't be too long!
