Kairouan's (القيروان) city walls

About This File

The original walls of Kairouan (in Tunisia) covered alot larger area than today's, and they were bigger also, before being destroyed and most of the city burned down in the aghlabic dynasty's last days.

 

 

There's not much of city walls in the STEX, and I needed one, so, here it is.

I will be making more pieces to it like bigger and better fortification pieces.

 

You will all the pieces in the park menu.

 

Everything is explaind in the screenshots.

Very nice. There are a few series of nice city walls for SC4, and this is definitely one of them. It would be nice to provide nightlighting - for older cities in contemporary times that may have walls as tourist attractions and in parks.

Beautiful!

"I will be making more pieces to it like bigger and better fortification pieces."
I would like to suggest diagonal pieces. I can think of only one existing wall set which can be built diagonally, and it's a very thin wall with a limited design type.

Awesome, but I think I will just download it when it is already updated.

How about making some pieces that will fit with the FAR pieces of the new NAM 31 ? (I'm not sure if this is an easy thing to be done, but if you can, maybe adding them is not a bad idea)

Just a suggestion.

NAM's FAR pieces are those curved roads? I think you can alreay use them, just use the pedestrian mall tiles over these wall pieces, and you'll be able to do anything you want, as explained in the pictures, but I will see what I can do.

Wow, I really like these! However, it's not clear at all how to make roads going through the gates. I suppose I have to put the ped mall tiles on the exact same place as the pieces of the gates you do not want a road going through, but that doesn't work. When I try to put the ped mall tiles on the exact same spot, they appear next to the walls...

I did try it and worked, you have to place the ped mall tiles, on the walls, that are a part of the gate lot, not on the gate itself, then you can pass a road threw it, it actually work with any lot in simcity4, litterly any lot.

      SM2 Concrete Sound Barriers.

      Its time for a new set of HD sound walls.

      With 41 pieces at your disposal you can bet that just about any combination has been covered!
      This set includes several FA3 (Fractional Angle 18.4 deg.) pieces for those special angled projects.

      Orthogonal, 45 deg, FA3, exit doors, emergency phone, ortho to 45, ortho to FA3, end pieces, overhanging ones, 11 with graffiti plus a double length one and one special Orthogonal piece that you can plop on slopes of up to 45 deg.

      To recap, 40 lots can only be places on fairly flat terrain and one flex piece for up to 45 degrees inclines.

      I made them with no base or overlay textures therefore you can dress them with your favorite MMPs

      ALL lots are neutral but one, the TEL piece. I made that one with nightlights.

      Use them on your highways, roads, railways and they also look great as fences in between industries and residential.
      I'm pretty sure you will find a home for them in your maps.

      No Dependencies!

      Just drop them in your plugins and play. You will find them in your park menu.

      In the mix you will also find a single orthogonal EL (elevated) piece to be used with L2 highways. It is a prototype and I made with the Maxis L2 highway specs in mind. You can try with different highways to see if it works.

      Have fun and post pics.

      I already sent mas71 a message about this, but I am not sure how active he still is, so I put it here too. I am using the walls packs of mas71 and my stairs look different. Looks like another texture (darker) and poles on the stairs. Also, in the screenshots of the jpn walls, I see a combined two stairs, not three? I am confused. When I remove the walls content, the poles are still there.
      I am using mas71 walls sets (jpn walls and walls pack 2) and my stairs look different than in his screenshots. Darker and one has poles in it. I added a screenshot. I hope anyone can help me out. Does it has to do with a texture and object pack?

      The hospital have a range of 900 meters, 10000 patient capacity.
      It's costs you 1200-1000 each month.
       
       
       
      No dependencies are needed.
       
      Kimlea noted that there is a small problem with night lights in this file, if you have that problem or if it bothers you try hes solution: 
      ""Very good building but it has a slight fixable problem with the night lights.
      This file has an invisible building and the actual hospital is a prop. Unfortunately the creator forgot to activate the night lights for the hospital prop. To get the night lights to work just open the file
      Tn hospital-0x6534284a-0x7a9a66d0-0xdb576264.SC4Desc
      in the “Reader” and in the Exemplar file change the value of "Light" (double-click) from False to True by changing the hex number from 0x00 to 0x01 ""
      I didn't try it but it's worth the shot I think. 
       
      (installation: place it in the file "plugins" in your simcity4 directory or in "my documents"; "simcity4", 'plugins"..)

      I updated the file, so now there's a helicopter, and a helipad on the hospital.

      This download contains a set of highway noise barrier walls. Whilst being of a simple and cheap concrete and steel design, they have a more pleasing curved pattern look as seems to be the trend in a lot of road construction these days.
      They are modded to provide a very healthy Park and Landmark effect, so the sims living and working near them will appreciate it. They also have a significant pollution reduction factor, so even though they can't reduce the sim traffic noise, they can remove the pollution affects assoicated with them. Plop a few of these beside a highway, avenue or road and see the positive effect they have on the surrounding buildings.
      There are ten lots in the set; some straight, some with corners, some diagonal and some overhanging the lot to cover those blank tiles beside the on/off ramps that you can never use.
      The lots all have the base texture removed, so the ground texture underneath will show through. This is good as the highways don't have a texture under them, so the lots match. But the lots sometime suffer from the "missing base" bug where the base appears blue/black.
      I'm working on a Menu Management Lot (MML) mod for these, so they don't clutter up the Misc Transport menu when you don't need them. These lots are BSC Tracking Enabled (BTE) which means they may contribute to Reward Chains.
      Lot Specs
      Lot size: 1 x 1 tiles 1 x 2 tiles 1 x 4 tiles Plop cost: § 80 § 120 § 160 Bulldoze cost: § 5 § 8 § 10 Occupant Groups: Building: Transportation,Building: MiscTransit,BTE : DW Lot Counter Power consumption: 0 MWh/month Water consumption: 5 Gallons/month Air pollution: -256 over 3 tiles -256 over 4 tiles -256 over 5 tiles Water pollution: 0 over 1 tiles Garbage pollution: 0 over 0 tiles Demand created: None Demand satisfied: R-$ : 250,R-$$ : 250,R-$$$ : 250 Landmark effect: 20 over 10 tiles Park effect: 30 over 15 tiles Monthly costs: § 1 (maint) § 3 (maint) § 5 (maint)

      Modular Cemetery and Park Walls 205
      Parks 205 AddOn Vol02

      This AddOn brings you two small modular sets - Park Walls and Cemetery, both designed to fit seamless into the Parks205 series. They'll help to transition a typical open park into a more closed and quiet cemetery and back to a free flowing park.

      Each set contains 7 pieces, all of them 1x1, with various configurations of walls, gates, tombstones, sarks and crypts, some of them with typical path configurations to connect them easily to the rest of the Parks205 series.



      DEPENDENCY

      Parks 205



      DEVELOPER NOTES

      All wall- and cemetery items are neutral, no special effects or benefits. You find them in the Parks menu sorted in near the SIDINGS205, with custom icons.

      Note that the AddOn contains one further item - an optional replacement for the default cemeteries (all 3 stages). The design is the same like one of the Cemetery205 Fillers, but with the functionality of the default cemetary. So once you are advised that "Your Sims demand a cemetery", you can just bulldoze one of the fillers in your cemetery-layout and plop the replacement tile instead. That way you get the default perks but don't need to change your carefully planned layout.

      If you'd rather use the default items (which are kinda large 5x5 lots, and not the prettiest either), you can just remove the cemetery_replacements.dat from the AddOn.
