SC4 Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction 1.1.0

   (4 Reviews)

8 Screenshots

About This File

This lot has been tested in-game, it was found that at least 2 of them are required to almost completely reduce pollution across a large tile as well as to provide water across a grid of pipes covering the whole tile.  It was tested also with the Utility Radius and Traffic Pollution Modd.  Use the Data View and Cheetah Speed to monitor changes in water supply, air and water pollution.  The pump is programmed to consume a very small amount of water so plop the pump in a non-polluted area as tests indicate it will not immediately clean its own base area and may fail to operate. 

Location: Water Menu under Utilities Menu, and Power Menu for 1x1 Generator

You must connect both the large water pump and the sewage treatment connectors to realize both the effect of the radical volume of water and the treatment.  The large water pump is the re-lot that will appear in the water utilities.   The dual purpose is combined into one lot with its own unique menu icon.

FOLDER: Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction V1

File: Readme.txt

SUB-FOLDER: Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction

This is the folder inside the unzipped title folder to be placed in your User\Documents\SimCity 4\ Plugins folder.  It contains 2 files: 1. the Radical_Water_Pump.SC4Lot, and 2. the BaseTexturesElements_RadicalWaterPump.dat file with base textures extracted from my Vol.1 Base Textures Elements package.  If you use the larger package then delete the smaller .dat file included as the textures don't need to be loaded twice.  The larger package is linked below:

Base Textures Vol 1.1: Elements, for SC4 1.1.0

SUB-FOLDER: 500 MWh Power Generator 1x1

File: RadicalWaterPump_PowerGenerator.SC4Lot

I've added a 1x1 lot to generate power for the water pump.  If you use the Data View Moisture Mod to locate a high volume of water it may be in a remote area, otherwise a non-polluted area may also be in a remote area.  The power generator is equal to 2½ times the wind power plant.

Previews:

The 2nd preview shows the progressive reduction of air pollution; the reduction of water pollution is about the same. The test city has 2 heavy industry areas and congested traffic generating severe pollution over the entire tile. A third radical water pump would completely eliminate both across the entire tile.

The 3rd preview shows at bottom Cori's Data View of Moisture mod which uses the radiation data view to show changes in moisture from rainfall.  In more complicated terrain the moisture data view is useful to see where to place water pumps which depend on aquifers. The mod is linked below:

Cori's DataView - Moisture v 2017.01.22 by @CorinaMarie

The top 2 frames show the progressive increase of water-flow over the entire tile.   Water pipes are tedious to place in large tiles requiring about a 30x30 grid.  To make the task of watering the tile easier use the Utility Radius and Traffic Pollution Reduction Modd by RalphaelNinja linked below:

The last preview is of this .SC4Lot in production in the Lot Editor for anyone who has enjoyed using SC4 as a design tool, creating .SC4 city tiles, and who may be considering taking the next step of creating .SC4Lot files.  Using Lot Editor is not much more complicated.  Below is the tutorial that got me started almost a year ago.

INSTALL:

To install copy and paste the Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction folder into your User\Documents \SimCity 4\Plugins folder. 

To also install the power generator copy and paste the 500 MWh Power Generator 1x1 folder into the folder above.

I really like the idea, but the water texture is a bit disappointing.

I'm always fascinated by what you can create with just vanilla props. Nice work, very detailed *:thumb:

      TL-Obelisk Place 4x5 (seasonal)
       
      This one is all my own – but couldn’t have been without Vnaoned beautiful obelisk. And it is for Dreadnought, who loves the Needle. (Bonus : it can be combined with several other of my parks and plazas using the same pavement texture).
      Many thanks to my technical gurus, Rsc204, Kosc and Dreadnought. And especially Rivit, who lighted my SC4world. Also the willing victims of the beta-tests, RobertLM78, Handyman and, again, Dreadnought. And the guys and gals on the forums (Twalsh, Matias93, Fantozzi…). We need help when we begin sneaking a peek under the hood of SC4. That the community is always willing to lend a hand is a constant and pleasant reassurance for us noobies.

    • By Torgy
      I'm a novice at SimCity, other than playing it a fair bit 10 years ago, so all the help discussion is complex and overwhelming.  Consequently, this is probably a "duh" for most players, but......  I have 3 old SC4 files for cities that I've saved from a computer very far away and long ago from a time around the initial release of SC4.  My question is, are these of any use to install my original cities, or do I need a whole bunch of supporting files from the original install that are now long gone on the old machine?  I can't seem to find anything that doesn't involve a lot of add-ons, installers, etc, so any instruction on a simpler level is welcome.
      thanks!

      LLB-Tariel Obelisk Place MODULAR
      I made the original Obelisk Place for Dreadnought a.k.a. LLB, who loves obelisks, columns, statues and assorted such grand urban art. He has since brought me to the Modular side of the Lotting Force, the practical beauty of which he illustrated perfectly with this relot of the original. I added a small 1x2 addon to balance the set-up when necessary.
      The dependencies are the same as in the original

      Tariel-Simsim Infinity Parks 2x2 to 5x5
       I loved Simsim’s parks set when I came upon it way back then. Those parks were… different. Alas, the originals have disappeared from the STEX. But this Japanese batter’s website is still floating on the web, with them : http://simsim.bakufu.org/p04.html
      What I loved about those lots is that they were almost modular – almost, not quite. So they were perfect candidates for my first attempts at modularity.
      There are two 2x2s, one 3x3, one 3x4, two 4x4s and one 5x5. Relotted, with mirrored textures AND with 1x2, 1x3, 1x5 and 2x5 “modules” that make them… endlessly combinable (hence, the name). You will also find pictures of how-to-combine examples.
      LLB (Dreadnought) was kind enough to make three little 1x1 that can be used as paths linking the parks. I might make more parks paths with that texture in the future. Modular‘R’Us !

      _______________________
      Stats : They dont cost much (from 30 to 200), they have a positive effect on pollution (except, slightly, the 1x5 parking module), they are not water-guzzling and they have a nice Park & Landmark effect.
