About This File

*Download links are back online! Hurray! :)*

*Important informations are given at he bottom of the page, check it out!*

Hello people, my name is Seb !

Today I am presenting you something you might like a lot; this is the More Trade Depots mod. It alters the Storage Capacity of the storage plates from "100.0 units" to "1000.0 units" and "200.0 units" to "2500.0 units". Also, more workers are now required in order to operate the trade centers (5 employees instead of 3). *All preplaced modules have been deleted!* Placement cost has been reduced from "13.000§" to "7.500§" ; building maintenance cost have been decreased to "450§". Docks and Rail attachment limit for Large trade depot are now capped at "2". All storage plates have now the possibility to be placed twice farther in order to allow you an easier placement.

What's coming in the "Major update 2.0" ?

- «New» Storage plates with higher and lower storing capacities.
- «New» Garages for transportation trucks.
- «Add-on» Local and Regional rails for trains will be added in the menu when editing the trade centers.
- «Possibly» Unique and specifically designed rails for Cargo trains.

» How to install ?

Files with the sub-extension .data.package have to be placed in "SimCity/SimCityData" folder ;

Files with the sub-extension .udata.package have to be placed in "SimCity/UserData/Scripts" folder ;

In order to ensure the mod works properly, bulldoze your original buildings (Trade Depot and/or Trade Port), next step is to save the game. Now, if files aren't already installed just do it ; if they are, or an older version is installed, then simply exit SimCity and re-open the game after you've updated files with the new ones.*
* I'll mention the steps if new files appears or the names came to be changed.

» The comeback 
Hey ! How is it going ? I'm doing pretty well if you ask me the question. During the summer, I was thinking at the "Good old times". Since the community felt a bit "dead" for SC2013, I decided to give to the game another "life".

As the days were succeeding, I was developing my modding strategies and diversifying the techniques. Soon, I was able to visualize a prototype of a mod that would have great chances of working because all the concept was based on the game mechanics. After a few weeks, I installed back SimCity and decided to come back among this community.

» The " Major update 2.0" or "SC2016"
As you have read, I am back. Yes, it is clearly written B A C K ! And for this comeback, I've decided to create the "Major update 2.0" Now, you might be able to be surprised or mindblown much more often or easily ; I have an idea of how to modify the terrain in a city (I won't spoil anything as long as there are not going to be any "Successful" prototypes).

» So... What can we expect from this event?

Pretty much all things that the smartest modders couldn't create in the active modding epoch of the game (the beginning of modding on SC2013).

Without wasting any more detail-ish sentences and lines of texts, here's a list of things you can now expect to see the day !

- Megatowers's crowns modding.
- Megatowers's floors modding.
- Greatworks modding.
- Terraforming tools
- ControlNet implementation in some facilities.
- Custom rails and transportation tubes for OmegaCo's mining modules.

Rework of files structuration, fixed some errors, added rail freight module and port modules to both Trade depot and Trade port.

      bugs noticed:
      ** after deeper investigation by Pheonix Rising it appears the mod does not work if you start up the game with a shortcut you have created yourself. So if this mod doesn't work for you, try starting the game with the Maxis default desktop shortcut, or (if you deleted this shortcut or didn't make one) start the game though "Start > all programs > Maxis > SimCity 4" from the start menu. (Big thank you to Pheonix Rising)
      ** this mod write to savefiles to backup the information gathers. Unfortunatly, it seems this mod will occasionally be closed off in the middle of writing to a file, causing the file to be corrupt. When this happens, this can cause the game to freeze. If you are experiencing this, please look for two files called "BSCfields.dat" and "popfile.dat" in your Apps folder and delete these files. This will fix the problem but will also reset tracking. If you do not wish to lose tracking, make a backup of these files once in a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.
      Daeley presents:
       the BSC Regional Tracking Mod
      The BSC Regional tracking mod is a mod designed to store specific data from your cities and make them available for the entire region to enhance regional play.
      Whenever you enter a city, you will receive a popup message asking you to track the city. With the data tracked by the mod, you can also have a look at a detailed regional population report and, for the farming lovers out there, you can look at the number of BTE fields in your region.
      Several upcoming releases from the BSC will also use this data to enhance queries or reward requirements.
      a word of caution:
      The regional tracking mod saves data dependant on the *NAME OF THE CITY. This means there are two limitations you should keep in mind during gameplay:
      1. Deleting or renaming a city confuses this mod. I advise against renaming, but if you want to delete a city, it's best to just start a new city with the same name. If you wish to just create a test city you plan on quickly deleting, you always choose *NOT TO TRACK THE CITY.
      2. Similarly, two cities with the same name in the same region (different region is ok) will result in only the data from the last one visited being saved.
      Note that cities are not tracked by default. This means when applying this mod to an old region, you need to visit each untracked city and track it, much like when you use a watermod to change the color of the water.
      BSC_essential_OG.dat (Now a part of BSC Essentials (v1.0) available on SC4 Devotions's LEX.)
      If you have any other downloads by the BSC you should already have this file.

      have fun,
      if any problems should exist, please do not hesitate to post them on the appropriate thread in the BSC forum at simtropolis.
      26.05.05 : A bug caused the mod not to track cities with single 'quotes' or double "quotes" in their names. A fix has been made for single quotes, but double quotes are still not possible. Thanks to Guinessmonkey for tracking and reporting this bug.
      -Cori Note: Updated dependency linky and added the following tip:
      In order for the popup dialogs shown in the above pictures to actually pop up when entering a city the Urgent Advice Dialogs must be turned on in the Play Options. (Otherwise you can watch for when the message appears in the news.)

      -Additional Cori Note:
      This mod was originally written when there were no digital versions of the game. The default output folder for a digital version is different from what @Daeley's mod expects. The easy workaround is to create an Apps subfolder of C:\Gog Games\SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition\Apps so it'll then be: C:\Gog Games\SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition\Apps\Apps where the two reports are stored.
      Optionally, one can edit the 0x0000dae1 LUA script in the mod changing these two lines:
      BSCfieldsfile = [[Apps\BSCfields.dat]] to BSCfieldsfile = [[BSCfields.dat]]
      BSCpopfile = [[Apps\popfile.dat]] to BSCpopfile = [[BSCpopfile.dat]]
      And be certain to read the first paragraph above (highlighted in orange) about it only working from an original Maxis style shortcut and not any custom ones. What does work is to navigate to where SimCity 4.exe is located, right click on it, send to desktop as shortcut, then edit the target line there adding only -Intro:off -CPUCount:1
      You do need to have Administrator rights when running the game so it can access the folder it wants to write the two files to.

      You know how in Google Earth you can hit "R" and reset the camera to point straight down and rotate so North is straight up?
      I think that would be an awesome and simple mod to add such a key to Cities:Skylines. Would anybody be interested in coding it?

      Hey there everybody...

      So I've been building houses and using Ronyx "No Base" script to remove that ugly grey stuff the game adds on below ground level.
      I just noticed... that also removes "snow" if the asset is placed in a Snowfall map. :/
      I don't supposed there is any way around this is there?

      I'm a city painter and I'm trying to gain some control over my neighborhoods. I'm pretty sure that "Building Themes per District" by Boformer is the mod for this but I'm having trouble learning how to use it. Are there other mods that you guys use in conjunction with it? Do you city painters use the "Always Demand" mod? Cause I'm having demand issues and I'm not sure if I want to remove that aspect from the gameplay. Also, when you plop a building from a theme, do you have to lock it every time, or is there an easier way to get it to stick?
      Even just some kind of quick introduction to how you use the Building Themes per District mod would be really helpful. I'm having trouble figuring out the GUI.
      thx in advance

      So a while ago while screwing around with modtools i stumbled upon something that seems to control how smoke effects (or spawners) behave. Editing these parameters made me discover these things:
      M_maxlifetime: controls how long the trail of smoke will be.
      M_maxspawnangle: controls the grouping of the individual smoke puffs
      M_maxstartspeed: i believe this controls the amount of smoke puffs spawned.
      there are min and max values allowing for variation in the effect. i used the factory smoke large effect to test this.
      At this point im stuck, i can edit the smoke effects without problem, however they just wont save, everytime the game is restarted they reset back to their default settings.
      I tried to look into making a mod that saves them, but i lack the knowledge on how to do so. so i hope someone can help me figure this out or wants to pick this up.
      Attached screenshots is were the prop effect parameters are located (default settings), and how the effect can look when you edit these.
