      Hello everybody,

      I´m a big fan of first person trips through virtual cities. Since the first city building game I played I always wanted to walk the streets of my cities and see a pedestrians view. Luckily this is possible in Cities: Skylines; this is why I am going to do a series of first persion trip videos of my City (ies).

      This one is set in the City of San Salvador (I am going to do a tour and Lets Play later on), which is about 70% done,.
      I hope you enjoy!

      The Regional Fire Station was made for building cities in which designing is more important to the user than civic operations, reducing the need to place and monitor public safety buildings.   The Regional Hospital is an additional building for the same purpose.  I have used the Ice Cream Truck to represent ambulances as there is not one in the Maxis props in LE, so although it may seem a stretch of the imagination, ice-cream at least associates to comfort for most people. 
      The building props are mostly from the Disease and Advanced Research Center and Airport to maintain a modern theme that could also be applied in a futurist setting. The radius and capacity are adjusted to cover most of a large city tile. A  Regional Police Station has been added to this download completing this set of public safety buildings, and an HTML Preview file added featuring the 3 lots.  
      Regional Hospital
      Patient Capacity: 12800, Radius: 2800.
      Landmark and Park Effect: 20, 10.
      Pollution 10, 5. 
      Maintenance Cost: 800
      Regional Police Station
      Dispatches 25 cars,
      Strength 200. Radius: 2800. 
      1 Helicopter.
      Jail Capacity: 200.
      Protection Cost: 400.
      The Regional Fire Station covers nearly an entire large city tile with moderately strong fire-fighting strength.  If placed in the center of the large tile its radius reaches close to the tile edges.  This station would also fit well in appearance and strength as an airport fire station.  
      Plop Cost: 5000
      Protection Cost: 400
      Center Strength: 250
      Radius: 2000
      Total Dispatches: 8
      Dispatch Center Strength: 200
      Dispatch Radius: 2000
      Exterior Strength: 200
      Air and Water Pollution, Garbage, 5, 3
      Located under fire stations in the civics menu with a bright red engine icon.
      All Maxis props and lighting, no dependencies.
      To install copy and paste the Region Public Safety folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.  (delete the readme and preview files).

      Karlsruhe Courthouse, by Mattb325.
      The district attorney's office in Karlsruhe is presented in SC4 as a functional courthouse.
      It is a reasonably accurate representation although I have omitted the high perimeter walls which are just a little too imposing for my taste. 
      In addition to providing your sims with 128 highly desirable civic jobs, it will help alleviate the commercial and residential demand caps that can hinder city development by providing additional regional demand of over 80,000 CO§§ spaces and 10,000 Residential spaces. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.
      It sits on a 5x4 lot.
      * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
      * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
      * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
      * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame courthouse (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis courthouse reward.
      * It DOES NOT over-write any of my other courthouse lots (so can be used in conjunction with these as well).
      Lot size :                5 x 4
      Plop Cost:              §41,000
      Monthly Cost:        §910
      Budget Item:          Government Buildings
      Occupant Groups: Reward, Courthouse
      Demand Created:  Jobs§: 16, Jobs§§: 104, Jobs§§§: 8.
      Demand Satisfied: R§: 5,000, R§§: 5,000, CO§§: 80,000
      Landmark Effect:   +120 over 36 tiles
      Pollution:                 Air 6 over 2 tiles, Water 1 over 3 tiles, Garbage 29 over 0 tiles
      Power consumed:  92 MwH
      Water consumed:  184 Gallons/Month
      Bulldoze Cost:        §9,140

      This download contains TWO file types in two separate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mods) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
      You must choose 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. 
      If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) 
      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 Mega Props - CP Vol02.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2790)
      *BSC Texture Pack - Cycledogg V01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=101)
      *BSC Texture Pack - BSC Textures Vol01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90)

      Sadly, ongoing negative comments from a few members of the community continue to force me to add this ridiculous disclaimer. This building has internal underground parking, and I have not used parking textures. If you wish to add parking textures, please do so using the lot editor.

      To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

      The Big Paeng Theory
      78 (!) Lots to expand 'Paeng Parks Revisited' into a boundless universe.
      Explict Warning
      This is a bigger thing. In the worst case (if you never used Paeng Parks before) you will need 39 dependencies (this is half a dependency for a lot). I will guide you through the installation process as good as I can. But before you start - included in this download is a pdf-file with an illustrated catalog. I recommend to quickly browse through this catalog first. So you can make up your mind, if you really like, need and want this.
      Before downloading please make shure you already have the following dependencies or if they are still available. If not, I'm sorry, you found another dead mod.
      Basic Information
      You can regard this as a "study" in lotting, an investigation, and over here you'll find some thoughts I had while working on this.
      This started as a personal project - I was tired having so many park lots that didn't fit each other. So I decided to make an unified park system - this means to "paengify" all my prefered park lots. And also I kidnapped many idears from other lotters and "paenged" them. The looking of the Veloceraptor Cage is not my idear (but to put a poor goat in front of it, a film quote), to realize a horse race track, was not my idear. There were several aproaches before. So don't tell me I've stolen idears. Yes, I did.
      Second I had - often inside of those "megapacks" – many good looking props sleeping on my hard drive, without a use on a lot. My aim was to make a better use of the prop packs I had already. Creating some sort of a showcase of all those beautiful things - how much work those modders put in this! I felt like an ignorant not making use of them.
      Third thing - I wanted to expand the park themes. Animal parks, sports parks, amusement parks - - all on base of the paengs style. If you still miss some theme: most probably I didn't do it, because it already exists in an paeng-ready state. For a seaworld lot or some ice skating, a skate arena, ore other sports. You would only have to change the ground textures in the given links. Not reason enough for me to relot them.
      I used a mix of seasonal and non-seasonal props on most of the lots, to achieve a colourfull change but that the parks don't look too poor during winter time.
      For the main lots – I tried to give them an individual function. Even if they appear all in the park menu, they aren't all for a "park effect". Some lots will cost you money, some will give you a little income. And other things. Please see the documentation for details.
      Obviously this work is dedicated to the great lotting artist Paeng. Copying him I learned much about lotting. Also I have to thank this community, especially T-Wrecks, giving idears and motivation to complete this.
      Please report any errors. Please share your idears for improvement. With the high amount I lost somewhat overview and I wasn't able to test any possible combination.
      Thank you for reading.
      Dependencies/Installation (follow this with calmness step by step and you're done in 20 minutes)
      1. Paeng Stuff
      Paeng's Park Revisited
      (includes Monuments Park v205, Urban Gardens v205, Paeng's White Sands Parkways v205 and a texture changer)
      If you are new to Paeng Parks please read the informations coming with his packages.
      To unify these different (originally independent) park systems it is very important that you use paengs texture changer correctly. Currently I tested my lots only with one of the unified texture versions paeng offers. This is variation Nr. 5 (see 'mod-combi_chart.jpg' in the texture changer folder). To achieve the same look please move the files "UG2Monument_Mod.dat" and "WSP2Monument_Mod.dat" from the texture changer folder into paengs main folder. Afterwards you should remove the texture changer folder from your plugins as it is an administration folder that doesn't belong in your plugins.
      2. Shared Dependencies (same as paeng, jump to passage 3 if you already use Paengs Park Revisited)
      SPOT (Orientation Helpers)
      Murimk Props 02, v201
      BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol01
      BSCBATPropsMattb325 Vol02
      BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol02
      BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01
      BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol02
      Porkie Props Vol 01
      Porkie Props Vol 02
      3. More Trees
      Or_VIP_Corylus.dat by orange and Or_VIP_Populus.dat, part of the
      VIP Rural Pack
      Grfe_props_pack_LE_beeches.dat (updated version, 2015.08)
      Grfe_props_pack_LE_maples.dat (v2)
      4. Common Dependencies
      BSC BAT Props LiL Vol2.DAT
      BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01.dat
      BSC Mega Props - CP Vol02.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol01.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - Misc Vol01.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - NewmanInc Vol02.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - RT Vol01.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - RT Vol02.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol02.dat
      BSC MEGA Props JRJ Vol05.dat
      Mas71 PROPs Vol03_080808.dat
      Peg SPAM Super Resource Pack
      5. Special Purpose Dependencies
      Opera House Fix (english version, please google for other language options)
      BSC MEGA Props DBSSYMN Vol02.dat
      For the next dependencies I recommend to make a separate folder first and to collect them there. Maybe later you want them to datpack as a single dependency and keep it together with the lots – to have a better overview or, also, for an easier deinstallation.
      Estatua-0x5ad0e817_0x4d403019_0x440000.SC4Model (you need only the named model file from this download)
      PEG_Resort-Pack_205.dat (you need only the named dat from this download)
      from The Festival Of Britain (alternatively you can also use this files from the dark nite version)
      from the SFBT Vienna Giant Wheel by Sir Roland
      rock-0x5ad0e817_0xd641b6bf_0x400000.SC4Model (you need only the named model file from this download)
      SiMCiTY4iE_TheDublinSpire-0x5ad0e817_0xfb542473_0x270000.SC4Model (you need only the named model file from this download)
      That's it. In the case you complain: install only the dependencies listed under section 1 and 2. The lots will be almost empty, but they will still work (without brown boxes).
      In all other cases: have fun.
      Made a support thread.
      If you like the stuff on the lots, please remember I only present those models, but they were made by other creators and you may consider to visit some of the links a second time to vote for them.

      So, there doesn't seem to be a thread for this in the past 6 pages.
      Here we have from low to moderately high security. (Those Ranger Stations are Guard Towers.)

      Depending on the individual's criminal record they are put to work in the dirty sanitation department, on the farms, in heavy industrial, or (for the elite crooks) in the commercial offices.
      Recently there have been suggestions for adding an educational curriculum (and the associated buildings) for the unschooled inmates. The city council feels it would not be cost effective. Oddly enough, most of the council members just happen to own the various businesses in town where the prisoners are put to work. (Not that that should be a conflict of interest. Right?) Imagine Shawshank Rredemption style.
