This is a small, modified collection of my police vehicles for SimCity 2013. Each vehicle is outfitted to serve as an undercover detective vehicle. If you notice any problems, please report them in the comments and I will look at the issues as soon as possible. Be looking for more mods like this very soon! Thanks for your support. Happy modding :)

      Short description:
      A while ago, a collection of Italian-style lots – the so-called Italian Collection, by simcity4ever88 – has been restored by the moderators of Simtropolis Exchange because the files had been stored on an off-site host which is not available anymore. After downloading this collection, I realized that it contains a huge collection (more than 1,000 lots!) of partially really beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, however, some of them are really poorly modded, up to the point that they may freeze SimCity 4 upon scrolling over them in the in-game menu, and, occasionally, the lotting isn’t much better. Therefore, I’ve improved both lotting and modding of some of these buildings. Real life doesn’t allow me to do this on a regular pace, but I’ve had a little time to work on some of the lots.
      This is a collection of 12 palaces and villas in varying sizes and styles. They are working as civic buildings in the health and education sector. Their values are similar to the values of their Maxis equivalents, only some have deviating values. The only special feature: All of these buildings have a small landmark effect.
      Available languages:
      The item descriptions are available in English and German; the item names are in Italian due to being named after famous Italian people. The readmes are in English and German. The game will pick the language on its own.
      ...unfortunately, quite a bunch, however, some of them are candidates frequently used by me and other creators.
      The Italian Collection: This plugin contains all building graphics.
      How to properly install the Italian Collection:
      It is not recommendable to just put all files coming with this download into your Plugins folder! Firstly, some of the lots do not have got a menu icon, and this may cause SC4 to freeze upon scrolling over these lots in the in-game menu. Second, you may obtain hundreds of lots in your game menu that you cannot (or don’t want to) make use of them; and some of them are growables that you can’t control. Please take yourself time to read these instructions.
      Various trees by Girafe: These plugins contain some mayor mode ploppable trees.

      Ultimately this bulletproof luxury SUV has all the creature comforts one grows accustomed to, while still providing excellent ballistic and blast protection.
      Scale: 133%
      Item names start with "SKP_Chevrolet_Suburban_V1_40"
      Can also be used in Mayor mode under tree menu as MMP (Mayor-Mode-Ploppable).
      The model was rendered in HD.

      I would like to edit certain files in the game allowing the water pumping station to pump 10x the normal amount of water, the sewage treatment plant to filter 10x the normal amount.  garbage and recycling trucks to carry 10x the normal amount, their respective facilities to process 10x the normal amount.  windfarm, 1 windmill providing more power than a nuclear power plant, 1 police station hospital fire dept each housing more vehicles and capacity.
      ive searched for files through simcitypak4 but no success
      thanks for any help

      At the heart of any well-balanced city is an order legislated to guarantee the welfare of all who live inside it's jurisdiction. Law Enforcement is one of the most important branches to a government, ensuring safety to all. Even if it's a traffic ticket now and then or a donut shop being stormed. Your departments need a sturdy car and the Impala is the perfect fit! For when the going gets tough in the streets, these new cruisers are well-equipped to take on anything!
      About the Upload-
      This mod converts the Police Car into a modified Chevrolet Impala. There are 8 different liveries included, based on various police departments from the United States. The liveries included are not specific to any real cities, so they can blend into almost any setting within the game. The shields on each side are custom emblems from GM to promote the Impala as a police unit. Static props included.
      None required, but if you would like to see these units in action (besides their regular patrols), it's recommended to download the Lots of Riots mod, which will spawn more frequent uprisings that allow you to actually use the police dispatch tool!

      You are an elected official. You understand that you must cater to everybody's basic needs in running a city. unfortunately, law enforcement is no exception. In order to have a safe and orderly city, you must invest in a police force. But the cars you're using now were the same ones your grandfather would drive! It's time for an upgrade! Serve and protect your cities; in style!

      About the Upload-
      This mod converts both the Police Car and Police Van into a Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Suburban, respectively. There are 10 different cities included, featuring police departments from the United States and elsewhere around the world. To install, simply choose one of the folders (labelled according to your preferred render settings compatibility), and drag the next sub folder with the desired markings to your plugins folder.

      None required, but if you would like to see these units in action (besides their regular patrols), I would recommend downloading the Lots of Riots mod, which will spawn riots that allow you to actually use the police dispatch tool!
