SM2 Concrete Sound Barriers.

Its time for a new set of HD sound walls.

With 41 pieces at your disposal you can bet that just about any combination has been covered!
This set includes several FA3 (Fractional Angle 18.4 deg.) pieces for those special angled projects.

Orthogonal, 45 deg, FA3, exit doors, emergency phone, ortho to 45, ortho to FA3, end pieces, overhanging ones, 11 with graffiti plus a double length one and one special Orthogonal piece that you can plop on slopes of up to 45 deg.

To recap, 40 lots can only be places on fairly flat terrain and one flex piece for up to 45 degrees inclines.

I made them with no base or overlay textures therefore you can dress them with your favorite MMPs

ALL lots are neutral but one, the TEL piece. I made that one with nightlights.

Use them on your highways, roads, railways and they also look great as fences in between industries and residential.
I'm pretty sure you will find a home for them in your maps.

No Dependencies!

Just drop them in your plugins and play. You will find them in your park menu.

In the mix you will also find a single orthogonal EL (elevated) piece to be used with L2 highways. It is a prototype and I made with the Maxis L2 highway specs in mind. You can try with different highways to see if it works.

Have fun and post pics.

What's New in Version 2   View Changelog


Dec 7 2017  Added 5 more FA3 mirror lots. Please re-download and replace the old file with this one. No need to demolish any lots already plopped as this update only adds new lots and does not modify the old ones. I included a new Legend and an additional picture showcasing the new models.

I haven't played SimCity for a long time due to my computer being in a box but I've seen these previewed on ST for a while, I'm downloading them and going to try to play this weekend, wonderful work and so flexible, I love these little internal workings of a city that make everything seem much more real, well done!

      I already sent mas71 a message about this, but I am not sure how active he still is, so I put it here too. I am using the walls packs of mas71 and my stairs look different. Looks like another texture (darker) and poles on the stairs. Also, in the screenshots of the jpn walls, I see a combined two stairs, not three? I am confused. When I remove the walls content, the poles are still there.
      I am using mas71 walls sets (jpn walls and walls pack 2) and my stairs look different than in his screenshots. Darker and one has poles in it. I added a screenshot. I hope anyone can help me out. Does it has to do with a texture and object pack?

      This download contains a set of highway noise barrier walls. Whilst being of a simple and cheap concrete and steel design, they have a more pleasing curved pattern look as seems to be the trend in a lot of road construction these days.
      They are modded to provide a very healthy Park and Landmark effect, so the sims living and working near them will appreciate it. They also have a significant pollution reduction factor, so even though they can't reduce the sim traffic noise, they can remove the pollution affects assoicated with them. Plop a few of these beside a highway, avenue or road and see the positive effect they have on the surrounding buildings.
      There are ten lots in the set; some straight, some with corners, some diagonal and some overhanging the lot to cover those blank tiles beside the on/off ramps that you can never use.
      The lots all have the base texture removed, so the ground texture underneath will show through. This is good as the highways don't have a texture under them, so the lots match. But the lots sometime suffer from the "missing base" bug where the base appears blue/black.
      I'm working on a Menu Management Lot (MML) mod for these, so they don't clutter up the Misc Transport menu when you don't need them. These lots are BSC Tracking Enabled (BTE) which means they may contribute to Reward Chains.
      Lot Specs
      Lot size: 1 x 1 tiles 1 x 2 tiles 1 x 4 tiles Plop cost: § 80 § 120 § 160 Bulldoze cost: § 5 § 8 § 10 Occupant Groups: Building: Transportation,Building: MiscTransit,BTE : DW Lot Counter Power consumption: 0 MWh/month Water consumption: 5 Gallons/month Air pollution: -256 over 3 tiles -256 over 4 tiles -256 over 5 tiles Water pollution: 0 over 1 tiles Garbage pollution: 0 over 0 tiles Demand created: None Demand satisfied: R-$ : 250,R-$$ : 250,R-$$$ : 250 Landmark effect: 20 over 10 tiles Park effect: 30 over 15 tiles Monthly costs: § 1 (maint) § 3 (maint) § 5 (maint)  
      To ensure the proper functionality, make sure the files mentioned below are installed in the plugins folder.

      Modular Cemetery and Park Walls 205
      Parks 205 AddOn Vol02

      This AddOn brings you two small modular sets - Park Walls and Cemetery, both designed to fit seamless into the Parks205 series. They'll help to transition a typical open park into a more closed and quiet cemetery and back to a free flowing park.

      Each set contains 7 pieces, all of them 1x1, with various configurations of walls, gates, tombstones, sarks and crypts, some of them with typical path configurations to connect them easily to the rest of the Parks205 series.


      Parks 205


      All wall- and cemetery items are neutral, no special effects or benefits. You find them in the Parks menu sorted in near the SIDINGS205, with custom icons.

      Note that the AddOn contains one further item - an optional replacement for the default cemeteries (all 3 stages). The design is the same like one of the Cemetery205 Fillers, but with the functionality of the default cemetary. So once you are advised that "Your Sims demand a cemetery", you can just bulldoze one of the fillers in your cemetery-layout and plop the replacement tile instead. That way you get the default perks but don't need to change your carefully planned layout.

      If you'd rather use the default items (which are kinda large 5x5 lots, and not the prettiest either), you can just remove the cemetery_replacements.dat from the AddOn.

      Modern Sound Barriers, by Mattb325.
      A set of nine sound barrier lots to grace your ground-level highways, heavy rail (etc): really, these can be placed anywhere you think noise from adjacent transport lots might be an issue for your long-suffering sims.
      While there are other noise barrier lots out there, I found that some were simply too big, some were too grungy, some didn't have diagonal options and there was a distinct lack of modern-looking barriers, so I made some to suit my own taste.
      These sound barriers are a modern concrete, steel and glass option.
      The lots have Orthogonal, Diagonal, Orthogonal to Diagonal and Left and Right Overhanging options.
      The Ortho->Diag options can be a bit fiddly to place, but you'll soon get the hang of it and to that end each lot has a custom icon to try and make the job a little easier (the standard ortho and diagonals simply have a grey line icon, while the more complex ones have a little picture as well). As a general rule, you should aim to place these lots with the curved glass top facing towards the noise (this has a cupping effect to dampen the noise beyond the wall).
      They are found in the parks menu - about half way down. Now, depending on your plugins folder they may not be sequential (i.e. other park lots might appear in between) but they will be very closely positioned to each other in the menu.
      As I made these for myself and designed them to be high-end, nice looking sound walls, they do have a park effect (and associated monthly cost), so if you are trying to keep your city looking grungy, don't use these.
      While some of you may think that this is very un-realistic, please be mindful that you would only see these sorts of walls bordering nicer residential/commercial/industrial areas in real life, so these lots are designed to stimulate medium to high wealth growth rather than simply being neutral...unfortunately this is the way the game works and to my mind, when modding something with an in-built desirability, it should come with an associated cost.
      All the lots have been made transparent (and do not suffer the water bug) so that they will blend in with your terrain.

      Lot size :                1x1 - 1x2
      Plop Cost:              §40
      Occupant Groups: Medium Wealth Park; Civic
      Park Effect:            +15 over 15 tiles
      Landmark Effect:  +20 over 10 tiles
      Pollution:                 Air (-)2 over 2 tiles, Water 1 over 1 tiles, Garbage 0 over 0 tiles
      Power consumed:  0 MwH
      Water consumed:  5 Gallons/Month
      Monthly Cost:         §5
      Bulldoze Cost:        §10

      I've never seen a highway wall self illuminate, so there is only one model file: the day version.

      This file does not require external dependencies.
      To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.
      Thanks, and enjoy!

      Well finally I got the time and put together this little set of diagonal IRM walls expansion.
      Altogether this pack contains 15 new lots based on @T Wrecks' IRM Fillers (I-D, I-M, I-HT), each set gets 5 new pieces (2 full concrate - one with grass props, one without them -, 2 sidewalk-concrete - same variation like concrete version - and a dirt-concrete). 
      Same stats as the original IRM Fillers. They can work without the original set, but strongly recomended using with them.
      Dependencies (like the original set):
      SFBT Essentials - for the diagonal overlay, the barrier, and those nifty positioning indicators. This pack will be used on upcoming filler sets as well.
      BSC Mega Props Jestarr Vol.01 - for most of the cargo props and some ancillary objects
      BSC Mega Props Jestarr Vol.02 - some less important props
      BSC Mega Props Gascooker Vol.01 - for the containers and a dumpster model I used.
      Rail Yard and Spur Textures Mega-Pak 1 Version 1.02 - for the base textures.
      RealRailway (RRW) NCD BSC Texture pack Update (v1.0)
      Maxis Buildings as Props
      BSC Mega Props CP Vol.01
      SM2_Tyberius_Ovsx4_tex.dat (INCLUDED) - Huge thanks to @Simmer2, who let me attache this little file to this pack.
