About This File

INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION MOD -
WALL-TO-WALL INDUSTRY 
 
Manhattanville Pack 3 by NYBT ABBT
 
1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
 
After another hiatus, I finally gave myself a push and got around to uploading this one. It marks the 14th upload in the third (and probably final) series of IRM W2W lots based on BAT models made by other artists, this time a mix of dirty and manufacturing industry. Once again, I didn't have too much work with this one because the high-quality 3dsmax BATs in this pack, Manhattanville Pack 3 by NYBT / ABBT were designed to be W2W in the first place. I merely tweaked a few stats, assigned the zones, added a few lot options, and a prop here and there.
 
The buildings will provide 36 to 140 I-M jobs for your Sims (for details, see lot breakdown below). Most of them will look best among low-rise development; 641 West 131th Street can even be used to "cross" a 4-tiles deep W2W block because it is long enough to face both the street in front and the one in the back.
As the screenshot shows, there is not much lot design to speak of; the buildings mostly sit snugly on the lot with blank walls to all sides not facing a street/road.
As usual, here's the list of lots included:

603 West 130th Street (108 I-M jobs):
  • 2x2 straight, Stage 1

641 West 130th Street (140 I-M jobs):

  • 2x4 straight, Stage 1 (2 versions)

524 West 131st Street (112 I-M jobs):

  • 2x2 straight, Stage 1

624 West 131st Street (100 I-M jobs):

  • 2x2 straight, Stage 1

630 West 131st Street (72 I-M jobs):

  • 1x2 straight, Stage 1

3247 Broadway (136 I-M jobs):

  • 2x2 left corner, Stage 1
  • 2x2 right corner, Stage 1

3251 Broadway (128 I-M jobs):

  • 3x2 left corner, Stage 1
  • 2x3 right cap, Stage 1

In keeping with the other IRM stuff, the job numbers are intended to 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

Hint: Just to be sure, I recommend moving the undesired files somewhere else and doing some checks before you delete them permanently. This way, if it turns out you forgot to bulldoze something, you can add it back in temporarily until you're done.
 
 
3 - DEPENDENCIES
 
IRM W2W Base Pack
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 building:
NYBT ABBT Manhattanville Project (3rd Pack). Only the .sc4model files are 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 3.0 (or higher) from November 22, 2016 (or later).

Fanastic man your IRM W2W and non W2W sets are something lite weight users will get tons of use from since it adds so much more depth. A great set along with the expansion to make industrial brick & mortar buildings have tons of life in the game. Thanks for making such a large project after all this time.

Relotting and remodding these nice bats is work as well. Time you did spend for the community, to complete things.

I'm thankful you did it. At the end - the overall outcome of many bigger and smaller releases for the IRM, the sum - it's a quite mighty thing, an indispensable enhancement for the game.

It's of no much sense to judge this release on its own. One has to judge how it fits into the project. And to me this fits like a birthdaycake on a birthday.

But ... wait ... to celebrate the 5 years anniversary of the IRM, isn't it too early?

      Geere Robotics Corporation by jestarr
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      The IRM uploads continue with another jestarr creation.
      The 15th upload in this series, Geere Robotics Corporation by jestarr, is another more or less nondescript building that looks a bit like a warehouse - one can imagine that they produce robots and ship them directly from this large plant. The two lot options are equal in size, but differ slightly in style. The first one has two "closed" sides with a fence and a footpath running along the back walls of the building, the other two sides open up to adjacent industry lots. The second one has three open sides with frontside parking and comes without a fence. Nothing too exciting, but there are some nice details if you zoom in closely, or at least I think so.
      Since all Maxis lots contained in the IRM Base Pack could optionally be used with toroca's Industrial Jobs Quadrupler, this download is offered in two versions: a regular one for those who prefer the default job numbers, and a quadrupler-compatible version for those who prefer using the modified stats.
      The .sc4desc files for the regular version will look like this: IRM_[Filename].sc4desc
      The .sc4desc files for the quadrupler version will look like this: IRM_[Filename]_x4.sc4desc
      After downloading, simply delete the file of the version you don't want to use. If you leave both in your plugins, the quadrupler version will most probably override the default version.
      The default version of the building will provide 120 I-HT jobs, the quadrupler version 480 I-HT jobs.
      The following lots are included in this download: 6x6, Stage 3 (2 versions) For those of you who like to play with day and night view, the building used on this lot is compatible with the following night light mode(s):
      Maxis Night with gradual day/night cycle: YES Maxis Night with static day or night: YES DarkNite* with static day or night: YES *DarkNite requires SimFox' Day and Nite Modd (or a similar darkening mod) to be installed in your plugins.

      3 - DEPENDENCIES
       
      IRM Base Pack with all its dependencies - while these lots will technically work, they are meant to tie into the IRM. They may look out of place and show unexpected behaviour if used independently. Since this is an extension to the IRM, all the dependencies of the original pack still apply. If you have them in place, you can download every single growable IRM and IRM W2W lot I have ever made and will never have to download any additional packs for props and textures used on the lot. Geere Robotics Corporation - you'll also need the original upload of the BAT to see the building(s). Only the .sc4model file is required. NOTE: For any dependency hosted at SC4Devotion (SC4D in short), you must be registered on that site and logged into the site's download area, the BSC File Exchange, in order to see the download button. Please bear in mind that there are separate logins for the forums and for the file exchange. For those of you who may still be unfamiliar with the site: SC4D is another major SimCity community with lots of unique content, so you will not regret making an account there.

      In my opinion, the big fault of Cities Skylines has the few options for zoning. All others games have medium zone and zoning for industrial and office areas with the exception of CS.
      Zoning:
      - Medium density for residential, commercial, industry and offices areas.
      - Larger lots for high density areas.
      - Zoning for industrial and office areas: low, medium and high densities.
      - Rural zoning

       20 DLCs so far and nothing of Colossar Order improve zoning in the game.

      Rorschach Research & Development by jestarr
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      Time to continue with the IRM! After several SimGoober uploads, it's time for a few buildings made by another very productive industrial BATter, jestarr.
      The 14th upload in this series, Rorschach Research & Delivery by jestarr, is a pretty generic and nondescript building that could house pretty much anything that doesn't require huge machinery and towering smokestacks. In this case, it houses the laboratories and offices of a an R&D company. The two lots included are extremely simple and straightforward, with at least one side open towards the surroundings. Being so generic, it should fit into bigger compounds, therefore I opted against a secluded lot.
      Since all Maxis lots contained in the IRM Base Pack could optionally be used with toroca's Industrial Jobs Quadrupler, this download is offered in two versions: a regular one for those who prefer the default job numbers, and a quadrupler-compatible version for those who prefer using the modified stats.
      The .sc4desc files for the regular version will look like this: IRM_[Filename].sc4desc
      The .sc4desc files for the quadrupler version will look like this: IRM_[Filename]_x4.sc4desc
      After downloading, simply delete the file of the version you don't want to use. If you leave both in your plugins, the quadrupler version will most probably override the default version.
      The default version of the building will provide 40 I-HT jobs, the quadrupler version 160 I-HT jobs.
      The following lots are included in this download: 3x4, Stage 2 4x3, Stage 2 For those of you who like to play with day and night view, the building used on this lot is compatible with the following night light mode(s):
      Maxis Night with gradual day/night cycle: YES Maxis Night with static day or night: YES DarkNite* with static day or night: YES *DarkNite requires SimFox' Day and Nite Modd (or a similar darkening mod) to be installed in your plugins.
