KOSC presents: Maxis Mansion Overhaul - Extension Set


Ah, Maxis mansions... err... wait a minute!

This is the long overdue expansion pack for my Maxis Mansion Overhaul mod, which was released several eons ago. This set expands the original mod by taking advantage of new lot sizes, climate variation, and the strength of the individual models themselves to add further variation in your affluent areas.

Package Overview

This set contains a total of 33 lots. Some of the new features include:

  • climate variation: The original was purely focused on seasonal vegetation, and nothing more. This set varies that up by introducing "warmer" and "colder" lots, which can contain anything from tropical palm trees to spruces.
  • individual lots: Some models, especially the larger palazzo variants, don't function very well in a family due to the variation of sizes. These have been lotted individually and each have their own flair and unique design (mostly).
  • new general lot sizes: 2x4 and 3x5 sizes are available for a few of the mansion families, adding even more shapes and sizes.
  • mayor's mansion: The tiny mayor's house reward now joins the fray as a growable, in 3 distinct variations.

General Stats

The Mayor's House is the only new building and has a capacity of 10 R$$$ sims. It is available in the following lot configurations:

  • 1 3x3 front, stage 1
  • 2 2x3 front, stage 2

The rest of the mansions use the original descriptors and as such, have their stats untouched. Consult the README or view the screenshots for a more detailed breakdown of the lot stats.

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder.


Not mandatory, but highly recommended is the original Maxis Mansion Overhaul mod.

Really nice work giving these a second chance at life (collectively with the original upload)*:thumb:.

It makes sense to make use of some of the maxis models which are there anyway (not adding extra space to our plugin folders). In the case of some of the originals, as well illustrated by your re-lots, it's mostly the lotting that made them a bit cringe worthy (those before and after shots speak volumes).

Oh, your initial link to the parent mod links back to this, (the one in the dependencies is correct though).
