About This File

Old Delaware County Courthouse, by Mattb325.

A request by a fellow SimCity player, this building drew its inspiration from historic photos and drawings of the Delaware County Courthouse that once stood in Muncie, Indiana.

Sadly, this eyecatching courthouse with its high victorian 'wedding cake' design and grand side staircases was demolished in the 1960s.

This game asset is offered as reward that DOES NOT replace the original in-game courthouse (nor any other custom lot) and it is offered without the need for pre-existing criteria to be met. It can be placed more than once in a city and can co-exist with the default Maxis courthouse reward if you so wish.

In addition to the benefits of enhanced crime fighting offered by the courthouse, I have modded this building so that it also provides 50 very desirable civic R$$ jobs, has a positive effect on commercial areas, provides a landmark effect, improves the mayor rating and is useful in lifting residential demand caps that hinder city and regional development.

The cost to the monthly city coffers for this government building and all of the benefits it brings is $118.

It sits on a 6x6 lot and is sure to make a grand centerpiece for any small city.

STATS:

Plop Cost: $68,900
Bulldoze Cost: $5,580
Power Consumed: 38 Mwh
Water Consumed: 75 Gallons
Pollution: 2 (air) / 1 (water) / 13 (garbage)
Radius: 2 / 3 / 0
Occupant Groups: Reward, YIMBY, Courthouse

      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. 
      ---------------------------------------
      STATS:
      Lot size :                6 x 5
      Plop Cost:              §5,900

      ---------------------------------------
      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      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 
      ---------------------------------------

      NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
      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.
      ---------------------------------------
      DEPENDENCIES:
      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 
      OPTIONAL DEPENDENCIES:
      *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.
      Thanks.

      Hey guys,
      I always noticed this happening. When I lower the funding of the maxis jail because I have much less than 1,000 inmates inside the prison, I start to see prisoners running and cops trying to catch them on foot. Of course when I am lowering the funding, I am always keeping the capacity more that the number of inmates. Does this mean that prisoners are escaping or is it just an annoying eye candy? 
      Edit: I got the answer, It didn't came to my mind to look for the answer in Prima's official e-guide before posting. Decreasing funding of jails increases the chances of a prison break.

      Old County Courthouse V3.0.0 (Reward) CAM 2.1 Version

      Old Delaware County Courthouse by Mattb325

      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW

      This is a Relot of my 2nd upload from April 2016 and still the second one in a series of Rewards based on BAT models made by other artists. This version is made for users using the CAM 2.1 MOD by InvisiChem.
      There is also an updated version of this lot available, if you’re using the Vanilla version of this game.

      This upload (updated version 3.0.0 for CAM 2.1), a recreation of the Old Delaware County Courthouse made by Mattb325, is an old, medium sized Courthouse, that was made by its creator
      from historic photos and drawings of the Delaware County Courthouse that once stood in Muncie, Indiana.

      This wonderful BAT comes on a new lot and features a custom icon and custom query window. I used the original seasonal trees here and the nightlight is also like the original BAT.
      You will find this lot in the Rewards menu right next to the In-Game Courthouse.

      Why is it a Reward and only available onces?
      This Reward is made for players, who want to work and reach a goal in the game and finally get WHAT? A REWARD of course…
      You don’t like it? Well, than this download in NOT for you!

      NOTE ABOUT THE DEPENDENCIES:
      This BAT is for you, if you like “realistic” looking and detailed buildings in your city. There are so many awesome creations like textures and other props made by the community out there, and I think, we should use them.
      You don’t like dependencies? Well, again, then unfortunately this download is NOT for you!

      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      I am sure the building was rendered for Maxis Nite, but it should work both with the original Maxis Nite and the Dark Nite Mods.


       

       
      Stats (REWARD):

      ·         Lot size:                                   6x6

      ·         Plop cost:                                §60,000

      ·         Bulldoze cost:                         §6,000

      ·         Monthly cost:                          §600 (Government buildings department)

      ·         Pollution:                                 4 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 42 (Garbage )/ 0 (Radiation)

      ·         Pollution radii:                        6/6/0/0

      ·         Power consumed:                 42 MWh/month

      ·         Water consumed:                  168 cu m/month

      ·         Landmark effect:                   125 over 37 tiles

      In order to get this (Reward), the following requirements need to be met (hard difficulties):

      ·         City population:                     115,000

      ·         Regional population:            215,000

      ·         Mayor rating:                         44

      ·         Courthouse:                           1


       
      2 - USE

      You need to extract this archive to your root plugins folder, it should then create a folder MSRB\REWARDS\[NAME OF BAT], where [NAME OF BAT] represents the name of this download item. Within that folder, you will find all the game-relevant files and a sub-folder containing the HTML readme and some screenshot(s). I strongly suggest that you keep your plugins organized, this original download in a safe place and remove all pics and this description from your plugins. These are not needed for this BAT to work.

      If you no longer wish to use this download, proceed as follows:

      1.      Bulldoze all lots pertaining to this download

      2.      Save all the cities and exit the game when you're done bulldozing

      3.      Remove the associated files from your plugins folder

      Hint: Just to be sure, I recommend moving the undesired files somewhere else and doing some checks before you delete them permanently. This way, if it turns out you forgot to bulldoze something, you can add it back in temporarily until you're done.

      Updated Version 3:
      This is a total new conversion intend to use with the Vanilla version of SimCity 4. I adjusted the game statistic values to work with it. You’ll need the Rush Hour Expansion set fully patched to 1.1.640.0 or a Digital version patched to 1.1.641.0 to use this release. Enjoy!

      Disclaimer:
      This lot was tested intensively without any problems, but if you have issues/problems with it, please feel free to PM me here! Please read this Readme carefully and make sure you have all dependencies installed properly.
      I am not responsible for any problems with your game using this BAT. Use at your own risk!

      5 - CREDITS

      Once again: Credits for the original BAT go to Sgt Pepper, credits for all the other dependencies go to the BSC-Team, Seraf, shokthrpy, KingOfSimcity, Girafe and Simfanatik! Thanks to T Wrecks for the inspiration how to create a good Readme-file! Without their creations I wouldn’t be able to create this Reward. Thanks a lot, guys! Happy New Year!
