About This File


During this autum I ran into a little problem in one of my cities. I needed some medium plazas with the dimensions of 2x3/3x2-3x4/4x3 and I couldn't find anything what I already wouldn't use in my cities, so I came up with the idea to making some new lots. The original idea wasn't about a public release, since I don't have too much experience (neither too much motivation) with plazas and I wouldn't have wasted to much time trying to make something which could be satisfying for everyone. But during the working process @tariely came up with some ideas and thoughts about nightlights (which is an other thing I'm not interested in), so she got the files to put her touch on them. Later I combined the two sets, Hers and mine, and here we are with this quite massive plaza set, which contains:

18 medium plazas (5 - 2x3, 5 - 3x2, 2 - 2x4, 4 - 3x4, 2 - 4x3)
3 larger plazas 6x5

I moded the plaza effects such as pollution and things like this totally random, so don't look for any realism, I don't really care the gameplay aspect in that deep, so they can be unballanced, but if you recognize some ballancing gameplay problem, probably will know how to fix it. Hint: LE Prop or Reader tool are your friends. Of course, I'm open any suggestion, and if you have accurate values for me which numbers I should change for what, I can and will do it and can update the upload.

The plaza plop costs are variable according to the sets:

Heretic (yepp that's me) 2x3/3x2 plazas - 400
Heretic 3x4/4x3 plazas - 405 

Tariel 2x3/3x2 plazas - 410 (yepp, they are more expensive, because they are admittedly nicer, less out of the box, than mine)
Tariel 3x4/4x3 plazas - 415

Heretic-Tariel 6x5 plazas - 500


Copy the "Heretic Projects" folder from the zip (or unzip it) into your plugin folder. Highly recomended to keep the provided folder structure, because all of my uploads have the same format, and since sometime I'm working with inclouded dependencies (such as textures or descriptor datas) it's better if these "inclouded dependencies" are in the same place. If you unzipped the upload, you may delete or remove the "Documentation" folder from your Plugin Folder.

You will find these lots in the Park Menu.

Huge thanks to Tariel for her help on this project. All the nightlights are her work, so all credits on the night lights is hers!
Also I would like to thank to Tariel her ideas and help on the lots, and that she provided her versions for this set. The beautiful Heretic-TL 3x4 Med Virgin Mary Fountain Plaza lot is completely her vision, so all credit is hers!

      KOSC presents: The Forsaken Ones - City Parks and Plazas (2015)
      There's a ton of leftover lots I have sitting on my hard drive in an unfinished/near-finished state dating all the way back to mid-2015. The Forsaken Ones is a series dedicated to those lots/packs which I feel is decent enough to warrant a look again and as such, I've tidied up a few of the leftovers and packaged them together.
      City Parks and Plazas was originally meant to be a large park/plaza pack back in 2015. The original idea included FA2 conforming plazas and a vast variety of other seasonal parks and plazas for more urban areas. As I ultimately got sidetracked with parking textures shortly after the creation of the first parks, the rest of the set never came to fruition.
      Package Overview

      Included in the following package is a set of 4 park lots.
      General Stats
      The 4 parks/plazas in this set consist of the following:
      1 small high-wealth plaza, providing small amounts but full R$, R$$ and R$$$ cap relief. 1 medium-wealth plaza, 1 medium-wealth park, providing residential as well as commercial office cap relief 1 larger high-wealth park, providing full residential as well as commercial office cap relief In addition, all parks share the following properties:
      Air pollution reduction, light water pollution Moderate to strong landmark effects within a short radius, park effects over a larger radius (relative to park size) By default, the parks should appear early on in the parks menu.
      Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README.
      Install Instructions
      Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder.
      This is an oldie so the dependency listing is considerably shorter.
