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.

Works well with my strip mining strategy. Centers take up less space. Can't wait for even higher capacity bins. Kudos

There are 2 links for the file when you click download; neither link works.

Download links are down again. I apologize... I really want to to make high quality mods that have very few issues or almost none. Also. Update 2.0 is being completely remade.

Mod should be back in early March on the STEX!

I forgot to mention that .data.package goes into SimCity/SimCityData folder and for .udata.package it goes into SimCity/UserData/Scripts folder.

It allows me to plop more than the normal amount but if i add more than 4 of either bays or plates then they vanish leaving me with only 4. The second map i loaded on the same region worked just fine. Both links are in the right folder.

      Hello,
      I have a new mod in the making that could use some beautiful icons.
      Basically it is supposed to be a bigger and better version of "City vitals watch".
      https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=410151616
      Instead of bars, I am going to use icons, but I need icons for stuff that the game does not provide.
      Anyone here who wields some visual artist skills and is interested to contribute to a mod?

      PEG One Flag Many Nations Mod
      By Pegasus

      The One Flag... Many Nations mod allows Lot Developers to place a generic flag on their lots which will then display the user's specific or chosen national flag when that lot is used in their game. The player decides which flag will be displayed by installing the one modified flag .dat files enclosed in this mod.
      Players should follow the Installation instructions below very carefully. Developers can learn more as to how this mod works in the Developer's Notes section below.
      This is an updated version of the original mod and is dramatically reduced in size. To use this mod, the player must have the Maxis Day of Peace Add-On properly installed on their system:
      - Direct Download Link
      (Other Maxis Files can be downloaded here.)

      Please note that this mod merely references the flag graphic images contained in the Day of Peace Add-On. Additional flags can not be added unless created by Maxis or a 3rd party developer. If your flag isn't included and/or you prefer not to have a flag displayed on lots that use this mod, simply don't install this mod.
      All Pegasus files are now legacy content and are no longer officially supported - however support from the wider community can be requested here.

      I downloaded a custom region from the STEX called "Suriname" which is a former dutch colony in the north of southern america. It's the first time I try to install and use a custom region. For this I used SC4 mapper with which I imported a SC4M file to create the map. 

      There are several problems. The 1st one is what the red text already tells you. The city called "Northest Suri" is orientated north/south according to the region overview as it is shown on the picture.
      But when you load the map the small developed area which you can see on the pic in the sattelite view mode is faced to the south (bottom part of the map in city view)
      So consequently it rotates the map 90 degrees right changing it's orientated to west/east causing the sea to be rendered on the east side of the map in city view rather then the northern side as the region view displays.
      However, the city tile right of it called "Suri - A" is angled in the orientation shown according to the region view and is as it should be.
      There is also a 2nd problem which the picture already shows. But the following picture shows it a little bit better.
      This is a region from the STEX called the "Soviet Union"

      FIrst of all the problem, which is the edge reconciliation that apparently draws water on the southern edge of the city tile.
      I have thus far always used edge reconciliation but with these custom regions it seems to be a problem. Does it matter whether I reconcile the edge or not?
      And why does it do this?
      Is there a fix or method so the map reconciles properly?
      Or should I never use reconciliation at all?
      I downloaded the appalachian terrain mod. Does that conflict with the region as it was rendered by the author, or does that have nothing to do with it?
      In any case, it seems that many of the custom region have different terrain mods or terrain colors used to render the map.
      How do I know which terrain mods were used with the custom region that I downloaded, or the ones I'm still going to download in the future.
      As for this one, how do I make sure my city tiles match the colors of the terrain the region is rendered with.
      Which mods were used by the author to create that particular tint of green?
      I don't fervour any particular terrain mod but don't really like the bland vanilla one.

      Hi, I'm trying to call some things whenever a road gets built, I tried doing this but whenever I build a road the startNodeID.m_position.y is something like 260
      Array16<NetSegment> lastRememberedNodes; void Update(){ for (int i = 0; i < Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer.Length; i++) { NetSegment item = Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i]; if (item.m_flags != lastRememberedNodes.m_buffer[i].m_flags) { NetNode startNodeID = NetManager.instance.m_nodes.m_buffer[item.m_startNode]; NetNode endNodeID = NetManager.instance.m_nodes.m_buffer[item.m_endNode]; lastRememberedNodes.m_buffer[i].m_flags = item.m_flags; Send("ROADBUILT|" + startNodeID.m_position.x + "|" + startNodeID.m_position.y + "|" + startNodeID.m_position.z + "|" + startNodeID.m_infoIndex + "|" + startNodeID.m_buildIndex + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.x + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.y + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.z + "|" + endNodeID.m_infoIndex +"|" + endNodeID.m_buildIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_infoIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_buildIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_modifiedIndex); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "IM A GIRAFFE " + startNodeID.m_position.y); break; } } } And when I initialize it here:
      DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road"); ColossalFramework.Math.Randomizer ra = new ColossalFramework.Math.Randomizer(); uint startNodeBuildIndex = uint.Parse(aData[4]); NetInfo startNodeInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(startNodeBuildIndex); ushort startNodeID; NetManager.instance.CreateNode(out startNodeID, ref ra, startNodeInfo, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[1]), float.Parse(aData[2]), float.Parse(aData[3])), uint.Parse(aData[5])); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road 1"); uint endNodeBuildIndex = uint.Parse(aData[9]); NetInfo endtNodeInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(endNodeBuildIndex); ushort endNodeID; NetManager.instance.CreateNode(out endNodeID, ref ra, endtNodeInfo, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[5]), float.Parse(aData[6]), float.Parse(aData[7])), uint.Parse(aData[10])); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road 2"); ushort segmentID; NetInfo segmentInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(uint.Parse(aData[11])); NetManager.instance.CreateSegment(out segmentID, ref ra, segmentInfo, startNodeID, endNodeID, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[1]), float.Parse(aData[2]), float.Parse(aData[3])), new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[5]), float.Parse(aData[6]), float.Parse(aData[7])), uint.Parse(aData[12]), uint.Parse(aData[13]), false); lastRememberedNodes = NetManager.instance.m_segments; It just creates a floation road in the middle of nowhere.
      Help please :?
