INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION MOD

I-HT Filler Set 1

1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW

This is a set of 12 ploppable filler lots for high-tech industry (I-HT) that can be used to complement grown industrial areas with some open yards, walls, and several types of cargo stacked outside. The set has been made for the IRM and, as such, blends in well with I-HT areas because it uses the same base texture, and the green fences look rather modern and suitable for high-tech industry.

You will find these lots in the landmark menu, conveniently grouped together right under the I-M fillers. Names and descriptions are bilingual once again, i.e. if your SimCity installation has a German locale, you will automatically see German names and descriptions. All other locales will display English names and descriptions.

The lots with stacked cargo on them will be restricted to relatively level ground - after all, you wouldn't stack containers or pallets of cargo on an incline! The open areas and walls, however, are highly slope-tolerant, which makes them extremely versatile fillers. Check the existing I-D filler set for more details.

Most props have been highly randomised. In some cases there is not only a random selection of the particular prop to appear, but also a certain probability wheter any prop will appear at all - or not. This has been made to maximise variation and visual interest. This time around, there are no stacked pipes, but you'll get an assortment of chemical tanks instead - this seemed somewhat more high-tech to me.

When you have these lots on your mouse cursor, you will notice orange-coloured bars being displayed on them. These are positioning indicators that show the position and alignment of the most important props before you plop so there is no trial and error involved. Play around with it a bit, and I'm sure you'll find it to be self-explanatory. After plopping a lot, the positioning indicators will appear once for a second or so, and then disappear forever.

In terms of game stats, these lots are almost neutral. They do not contain any park/landmark effect, cause a negligible amount of pollution, and cost §7 to plop / §5 to bulldoze each. There are no running costs whatsoever, so plopping a lot of these will not harm your budget even in the tiniest starter town.

INSTALLATION: I recommend extracting the ZIP file into your main IRM folder (...\Plugins\IRM\). After installation, a new folder called "I-HT Filler Set 1" should have appeared, which contains the 12 lot files you will need in order to use this set. However, there is no technical necessity to use this folder; any place inside your plugins will work.

2 - THE TECH STUFF

Not much this time, since these are pretty plain eye-candy lots. As mentioned above, use with the IRM is recommended and will yield best visual results, but there is no technical interdependency.

3 - DEPENDENCIES

If you already have the I-D filler set or the I-M filler set, you have all you need.

If you use these lots as an extenstion of the IRM, there will only be one additional dependency:
SFBT Essentials - for the diagonal overlay, the fences, and those nifty positioning indicators.

If you use these lots as a standalone set, you will also have to download the following dependencies:
Maxis Buildings as Props - for the security building at the entrance
BSC Mega Props Jestarr Vol.01 - for most of the cargo props and some ancillary objects
BSC Mega Props Jestarr Vol.02 - some less important props
BSC Mega Props Gascooker Vol.01 - for the containers and a dumpster model I used.
4 - FINAL WORDS

Phew, this concludes the series of ploppable filler lots for the IRM! This is also going to be the last IRM upload you're going to see for a while - this year at least. I've had enough of it for now. In the running month, I have uploaded 369 lots for you guys and gals to enjoy - that will have to do for a while.

Some time next year, I guess I'm going to "IRM-ify" some popular industrial BATs. This is likely to happen one by one. However, all this is pure theory right now. I'm going to enjoy the holidays without touching the Lot Editor, and I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year, too. :)

      The lot is called Sues Sunflowers. This is a growable farm.
      Most of the props on this lot are mine.
      Thanks go to Couch Potato and Shmails for the props used on this lot as well as the BSC team for textures and props

      i was able to find all dependency's except 2 BZBURNS which is no longer available and a missing texture that I can not locate.

      ok i think thats everything. The only thing I will have to do is replace the missing texture and remove the horse prop as it can not be found..
      Look for Version 2 soon with the repairs mentioned.

      I'm totally confused!
      I thought that when you create a lot that the info that is in the sc4desc file is saved in the exemplar file of the lot. So in essence the sc4desc file would be useless after the lot was finished.
      But now it seems it may not be useless at all, I see that file in many uploads here and today I actually saw a comment from a lotter that the sc4desc was a required file!
      Can someone straighten me out is the sc4desc file useless after the lot is saved is is it a required file to include with the lot when you upload it and install it in the game?
      The reason I ask is that I've been blowing away the sc4desc file whenever I run into it, if it is actually required then I need to stop doing that before I get myself in trouble.
      TIA
      Dazed and Confused!

      I downloaded the Moonrise Appartments mod by Daeley (this is the link: 
      But it comes up as an empty lot. Can anyone direct me to the dependencies which are obviously not listed? Thank you!

      Hello all, not sure if this is the right place for this, but I recently was reorganizing my plugins and had to redownload HK Garden Estate Towers.
      I have been using the R$ lots 1a, 1b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b. However I have noticed that something weird is happening. 1b and 5b grow as normal, but 5a is growing using 1a's .desc info, and 4b with 4a's .desc info. If that is confusing, then an example is a 4x4 lot will grow, which is supposed to be Tower 5a. But the name and capacity, etc. will be Tower 1a, and the Tower 1a 2x3 lot will not grow. Same with 4b and 4a.
      I used the buildingplop cheat to test, and noticed that there are only 4 ploppables despite there being 6 lots. I used reader to change exemplar name for lot 4b, but that didn't work and trying to plop 4b would still plop a 4a tower with 4b stats.
      I removed the lot files and tested one by one, and they work fine. If I only use 1a, 1b, 4a then the lots are all there. If I use 1a, 1b, 4a, 4b, then 1a and 1b work properly, but there is only the 4b with 4a stats as the 3rd lot available.
      I am inexperienced using PIM, but I used it to examine the lots by going to the lots and right click them and check dependency, using the 4a/4b combo as the test problem pair. If only 4a is there it says 4a dependency is 4a.desc, and it appears in the RCI descriptor list. If both 4a and 4b are there then 4a.desc disappears from the RCI descriptor list, and 4a.lot now says the dependency is 4b.desc.
      I noticed that it has been updated lately, and maybe this problem is new. I have not used the other R$ lots or R$$ lots, so I am not sure if this is happening to other lots in the pack. Sorry if what I am saying is confusing!
