About This File

This package contains a ReLot for the 6x6 version of Mattb325's reimagined Max's Microchips building.

When Matt released some new I-HT buildings earlier this year, this one in particular stood out for me as one great looking model. As such I couldn't help but go full on with re-designing the lot. Of course, when you do such things, you tend to use a lot of dependencies. So one lot it may be (download), but prepare for the full list of dependencies, it's not for everyone. Frankly if you don't have all Girafe's flora, you're missing out anyhow. Aside from that it's really just 2 dependencies if you think about it ;).

The lot in the download is a direct replacement for the 6x6 version from Mattb325's package. Otherwise you need to keep the other files from the original download installed.

Dependencies

Building Model

Flora/Props

Textures

  • MGB IndustrieSAM / SAM11 (NAM Component)
    You must have the SAM11 from NAM36 installed, as this lot uses textures contained in the NAM files.
  • MGB Industrial Textures.dat (Included)
    Note: Options for EU/US, LHD/RHD and custom sidewalks are all included. Please read the Readme file for full details. Installing the complete package will lead to problems, you have been warned.

Usage

This 6x6 lot is best placed on a corner as seen in the screenshot. You can use the BuildingPlop cheat to place it where ever you like, or just allow it to grow normally. If plopping the lot, note it will not generate freight and you should have suitable I-HT demand to accommodate the lot.

The street connection is not TE (Transit Enabled), instead you must make a fake TE connection using the RHW disconnecter or NAM Rail Viaduct features. See this video (YouTube) for more complete instructions on how:

Neat! The prop and texture selection blends really well with this model, and the SAM 11 street is a great touch. And the tutorial link is also a great idea.

The more compact 6x6 re-lot with more refined parking and landscape areas makes it a nice feature of a high tech. property.   The grass areas can be further developed easily with MMP trees in-game, so makes it enjoyable to work with.  Thanks.   The water texture and shadows  in the original are excellent.

      INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION MOD
       
      Nova Energetics by HunD88
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      Ok, as the conclusion of this IRM upload series draws closer, we get to the somewhat more interesting lotting projects...
      The 39th and next-to-last upload in this series, Nova Energetics by HunD88, suggested itself for a combination with a well-known Maxis high-tech industry buildings because it was so similar in colour that I simply had to try creating what would hopefully look like one coherent complex. As you can see on the screenshots, I made two standalone lots as well as four complex lots with the main building and either one or two outbuildings.
      I remember lotting this one was fun, and I tried to make the lots very individual in character. The big 5x5, for example, features a stone wall topped with a chainlink fence around the outbuildings and has a certain "high-security-do-not-enter" vibe to it - we can imagine that the blue thingamabobs are some dangerous high-voltage switchgear stuff. Other lots are much more open, and feature various characteristics (trucks, cargo crates, propane tanks, parking lots, footpaths, fences) to varying degrees. I hope you'll like at least some of them and they won't look too repetitive. Needless to say, prop families were also used extensively once again to offer the best variation possible.
      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 50/70/90 I-HT jobs, the quadrupler version 200/280/360 I-HT jobs.
      The following lots are included in this download:
      3x4, Stage 2 (Nova Energetics 1) 5x3, Stage 2 (Nova Energetics 1) 4x5, Stage 3 (Nova Energetics 2) 5x4, Stage 3 (Nova Energetics 2) 5x5, Stage 3 (Nova Energetics 3) 6x5, Stage 3 (Nova Energetics 3) 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. 

      2 - USE
       
      If you extract this archive to your root plugins folder, it should create a folder IRM\IRM 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 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. Nova Energetics - 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.

      Tariel-Villavicencio Chateau-Beynac Grand Cru 7x6 Grow
      I like good wine (that’s “Grand Cru” meaning in French). So here’s a vineyard, relotted from Villavicencio’s creation.
      The lot is IR stage 2 (agro-industry) and Grow only [cheat lotplop to the rescue !].  It can be extended with more vineywards on two sides at your leisure.
      You can check Villavicencio’s content on the STEX.
      A list of deps is in the folder (updated from the original !)
      Many thanks to my technical gurus, Rsc204, Kosc and Dreadnought. And especially Rivit, who lighted my SC4world and is always generously ready to help. And the guys and gals on the forums (Twalsh, Matias93, Fantozzi, Catty-cb, Corinamarie…). We need help when we begin peeking under the hood of SC4. That the community is always there for us noobies is a constant and pleasant reassurance. General warnings :
      General warnings :
      (1) This is for SC4 Rush Hour.
      (2) I play with NAM36, RRW-EU selection (it shouldn’t interfere here, but you never know !)
      (3) I also play with Twrecks Maxis HD Tree Replacement (if you don’t use it, your trees might look a bit different ; perhaps you should use it,,,)
       (4) I play Nights. Hence the included RVT zNightLighting. Depending on your using or not a Light Replacement Mod, the lighting will be slightly different, but There Will Be Light. If you don’t want it, you can either tweak my lights in the Lot Editor or get rid of them entirely.
      (5) I like trees. I make intensive use of trees. Especially Girafe tree collection on the LEX ; so here’s a link, once for all ; just follow it into the woods.

      Ohm Resistors by HunD88
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      Might as well make a second upload today to get this series done finally...
      The 38th upload in this series, Ohm Resistors by HunD88, is certainly not its highlight. It's one of HunD88's earlier BATs, and while it still looks OK to me, I must admit it's not my favourite building. More importantly, however, this might have been the first lot that I made for the I-HT category, and in any case you can certainly tell it's not my best!
      Anyway, the building certainly has character with the 3D sign and its "shoebox tilted to the side" shape. The lots look kinda "meh" to me in hindsight, but I guess they'll do. The bigger one has some footpaths and greenery towards the front and side and parking to the back, whereas the smaller one is of the simple "island in a sea of concrete" type.
      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 44 I-HT jobs, the quadrupler version 176 I-HT jobs.
      The following lots are included in this download:
      3x4, Stage 2 5x3, 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.
