1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
As the 20th and final upload of this first batch of IRM W2W lots based on BAT models made by other artists, I present Chalmers Auto Supply by BSP/mipro member nofunk.
The building will provide 320 I-D jobs and comes with 2 corner lots, one being a regular corner lot and the other suitable as an "end cap" for W2W blocks. Here's what you'll get::
- 4x4 left corner, Stage 1
- 4x4 right cap*, Stage 1
In keeping with the other IRM stuff, the job numbers are intended for be in line with Maxis stuff if you use Toroca's Industrial Jobs Quadrupler. Since you cannot zone large coherent areas with W2W industrial and the lots can be complemented with fillers, the resulting job density will, in fact, be not that excessive. For the same reason, growth stages for IRM W2W are generally kept low.
2 - USE
If you extract this archive to your root plugins folder, it should create a folder IRM\IRM W2W Expansion\[NAME OF BAT], where [NAME OF BAT] represents the name of this download item. Within that folder, you will find all the game-relevant files and a sub-folder containing the HTML readme and some screenshot(s).
If you no longer wish to use this download, proceed as follows:
- Bulldoze all lots pertaining to this download
- Save all the cities and exit the game when you're done bulldozing
- Remove the associated files from your plugins folder
3 - DEPENDENCIES
Since this is an extension to the IRM, all the dependencies of the original IRM base pack still apply.
In addition to this, you'll need the original upload of the BAT to see the buildings:
Chalmers Auto Supply - only the .sc4model file is required.
If you want to have the option of blocking the enclosed lots from growing temporarily, for example when you want to go back to regular (i.e., non-W2W) IRM industry for a while, you can use the IRM W2W Expansion Blocker v 1.0 (or higher) from January 23, 2015 (or later).

4 - FINAL WORDS
While this upload concludes the first pack of 20 I-D uploads, it is far from the last IRM W2W upload I have in store for you. Next up will be another pack of 20 I-M uploads. They're sitting on my HD and only need documentation, screenshots and packaging, but due to an ever-busy RL, uploads will probably come irregularly. For now, I'm glad I have completed uploading the first pack, and I'd like to thank nofunk for the great BAT. I'd also like to thank all the kind people who have downloaded, rated, commented, and given feedback - I really appreciate it!
