For a lotter this is definitly something like this:

3-format6001.jpg?inIsFirst=true

to bath and swim and dive into props. Loading the whole package into PIM-X took very long and seemed a never ending row of freight cars was rumbling through the preview window.

So thankfully the models weren't dat-packed but instead are organized by type and angle in folders and subfolders - so very easily you can make excerpts for your needs to work with.

And definitly we'll have to make this a new standard for freight train yards and I'm pretty shure (may take some time) this will raise the level of realism of seaport and industrial zones etc. One has to see - there is a new task now for us all, to make use of the LE and become train yard lotters, to redo all the container yards etc. And I have to recommend to any new player in town - make use of the Lot Editor, Maxis provided to edit game content. You can double the fun and it's pretty easy. And so you'll see what this is: a toolbox to create whole new playgrounds.

Also I couldn't load every piece into the game and my first impression comes from PIM-X , the quality of the props ranges from very good to stunningly great and the included pdf (chapter: loading the flat cars) shows that you even can add variety to the already giant variety of the car props.

Can't imagine how to do better.

Me, playing european cenarios, have to figure out now how those north american cars may fit (pretty shure many of them will).

Ah, I see so much fun ahead puzzling them together and also with @Simmer2's well developed RRW textures. You opened the gates to the SC4-paradise.

Thank you so much.

Wow. So this is what happens when Mozart leaves music to pursue a hobby in SC4 content creation.

So many gems in here and a mind-boggling number of possible configurations... amazing, amazing work!

      Hello player.
      This time I bring you a beautiful full size industrial style Grain Elevator.
      SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD acts as a freight yard.
      Grain Elevators are all over the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
      This particular model had to be rendered in SD (Standard Definition) because of its sheer size (I could not coax my computer to cough up the full size HD version.
      However there is a somewhat smaller version which I managed to render in HD (High Definition), available as a separate lot.
      You will also find 2 sets of standalone Silos included in this Zip. These silos (1X and 2X) can be plopped in existing farms field and then by using a variety of MMP's to construct a roadway, can simulate silos on a farm.
      Both silos have no power, roads and water requirements therefore they can be plopped anywhere.
      The dirt roads will connect visually. Trucks will bring the goods and the DTR rail will allow freight trains to cross the lot after loading.
      I suggest to connect the DTR network as a spur because passenger trains will not cross the lot.
      Freight capacity = 80,000 tons
      Jobs = 268 low, 133 med and 26 high
      Plop cost = 39,200
      Power = 39
      Water = 154

      SM2 Old Coal Tower Spur
      This is an old rail spur, used extensively during the coal era. There are quite a few dotted along the railway network but they are abandoned.
      An old coal tower can still be seen including a very rusty and decrepit outbuilding.
      This lot features Real 3d Rails (not flat textures) for an even greater realism!
      3 pieces make up the ensemble:
      One 1x1 Transition piece between RRW STR and Real 3d Rails.
      One 1x1 Real 3d Rail extension piece, which allows you to extend the length of the ensemble.
      One 7x3 main lot with the scene itself.
      Plop cost 4000
      It gives some landmark effect.
      No power,water and road connections necessary thus allowing you to plop this in any remote location you wish.
      You will find them in the landmark menu

      Grain Elevators are allover the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
      This is the SD Cal Canal version of SM2 ADM Grain Elevator.Fully rendered including a grain transfer boom for fluvial operations (loading ships). Anyone that uses Cal Canals will find this version very useful.
      SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD Cal Canal also acts as a freight yard.
      The dirt roads and STR rail will connect to the game networks visually therefore you will see freight trucks arriving and freight trains leaving.
      Lot size 10x12
      Freight capacity = 65,000 tons
      Jobs = 180 low, 88 med and 23 high
      Plop cost = 22500
      Power = 125
      Water = 32
