Cheat: Easy Money / RCI / Freight mod 1.0

   (4 Reviews)

About This File

As with my other mods, this mod accommodates my own incorrigible penchant for extreme cheating (cough) ease of play.  Not compatible with other RCI mods (RCI plop mods are fine). Tax building values are high, pollution levels are low, freight quantities and frequency of production are increased. 


-- Offline only --


For all RCI buildings:
* Tax building value set to 100,000 simoleans.  
* Minimum workers for operation for all buildings reduced to 1.
* Garbage reduced to 0.
* Water capacity set to 15 and water usage to 5 (or left alone if lower)
* Power capacity set to 15 and power usage to 5 (or left alone if lower)
* Self-ignite threshold property set to 500, up from either 45 or 90.  

Additionally, for all industrial buildings:
* Transmitter amount (volume of pollution) set to 0.  Occasionally, some industrial buildings show as polluting, but nothing comes of it.
* Transmitter Rate (how frequently a building pollutes) set to every 10 hours (600 in-game minutes).
* Skill threshold (number of educated citizens needed for tech level) set to 1 for low, medium and high residents. 
* The delay, in minutes, for producing the next batch of freight set to 15 (down from 36, 48, and 72).
* Freight production doubled.

---> Note:  More than likely, you will need to replop existing industry.

This mod only affects RCI buildings, so transportation, utilities, trade, landmarks, etc., are not affected.

Compatible with RCI Plop (003_OFFLINE_DLC_OBJECTS_SUGC_TEAM1_20140231_2_1_RCIHCPLOPALL.package).

Thanks to rzvsividra for identifying the instance ID#s of low tech medium density buildings, freight amount, and freight production delay.

To use:

Place all files in SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages.  If you already have the script files, you don't need to put them in there again, just the included package file.

If you start a new region, what I find I must do is start the region, save it, quit the game, and then re-start for any mods to work the first time, even other people's mods that I've downloaded here.

If you use this file, delete and replop any existing industry.

      Hello there, i've just started playing this sim game and at the very beginning i've got some wierd trouble with my buildings. Basically, in a first place, a lot of my buildings just don't want to increase the density despite there's enough room to do so as you can see in the image below. The second thing that occurs very often is that new sims just dont wanna to move to the newly Residential designed zone despite the fact there actually a demand for new R zones as you can see in the bottom right corner of the second image. Those two things just make the game unplayable to me... it's a common bug? There're work arounds to solve this kind of problems? Maybe mods? Or i should just give up on this game?
      Thanks for you time, have a nice day

      I think I do have a good idea how RCI works, but is there any data out there that shows in detail the inner workings of the RCI demand system? Not their effect on the city but literally how demand is generated/calculated. Just curious ;o
      Sorry if that's already been answered somewhere else - I haven't been able to find anything :/

      Thanks to @CorinaMarie, I discovered 50 files of various RCI buildings, very pretty, very American, by a long gone bater @dk1.
      There are NO dependencies in any of the files. Many (all?) are improvements from the default MAXIS ones.
      Now my question: how can I place them in my plugins folder without creating more havoc. Ideally, they should stay together in a dedicated folder, but with what name?
      Thanks for your comments.

      Radical Maxis Re-Lots (Beta-0.2)

      Product Type : Lots
      Author : This is my name
      Version : Beta-0.2
      Dependencies : bldgprop_vol1.dat, bldgprop_vol2.dat
      These dependencies are required for some of the lots (eg. R$, CS$$) that require additional props appearing as buildings in the game.

      Radical Maxis Re-Lots is an attempt to modify all Maxis lots, growable and ploppable, to appear more realistic and more detailed. Features including alleyways for most lots, accessible parking, and Uniform Street Light Mod-compatible lightpole layout.

      If installing from the ZIP archive, download, unzip and install directly under your C:\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.

      In Radical Maxis Re-Lots folder, there are sub-folders indicating the type of lots in the folder (example: CO$$, R$, PZ). You can control which type of lots will appear in the game by removing the sub-folders that you do not want out of Plugins folder.

      To uninstall, just remove the Radical Maxis Re-Lots sub-folder from your Plugins folder.

      Only in new cities
      I have changed the size for some of the lots, sometimes covering a full range of a growth stage, for example: Scoot and Pump, all high-rise apartments in R$.
      No lot blockers please (eg: Maxis blockers)
      These are re-lots, as such, they will not work well with any blockers.
      Graphical glitch WILL happen
      if installing in previously saved cities if you do not have required dependencies  
      This mod can be added and removed anytime
      These mods do not interfere with SimCity 4's system.
      There is a solution to immortal lot bug
      If a growable lot overlaps something after installing this mod in a previously saved city, bulldoze the lot. If you have bulldozed the growable lot but the lot itself stays, dezone and rezone using a different zone (example: if the affected lot is residential, rezone using commercial, any density).
      If the lot still stubbornly stays, please proceed here.
      This project has been discontinued. Very sorry, everyone.
      If you are interested in this project's history, please proceed to the development thread here.
      Contact me here.
      Right click, copy email address. 
      Only important questions.
      I will not answer unnecessary questions.

      Anyways, thank you for downloading this mod!
      Mithrik - thanks for giving feedback on version Beta-0.1!
      And to all others who support this project, thank you very, very much!

      Read Me version 0.2-1.023

      Is there a modd out that that allows you to plop EVERY build (as in: allows you to plop growable lots such as homes and stores etc.)?

      If so, what is it?
