About This File

Background:

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

Install:

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.

Dependencies (it's quite a long list, but it contains pretty common prop packs, specially if you're already using Tariel's one or more parks/plazas from previous uploads):

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!

Enjoy!

EDIT:  I left out one dependency, now the Ftexture.dat is attached to the dependencies here (but the included readme doesn't contian that - sorry for that).

EDIT 2: fixing broken dependency link (BSC MEGA Props - swi vol. 1)

      I went out and bought SC4 on the very first day it was released. And from that day, the default tennis court park has bothered me and I couldn't figure out why. I even mentally played a tennis game on the default court: I serve... it goes long... and I watch the ball bounce out across the street and bean some old lady in the head. My second serve is returned and flies high and to the right... and I watch it skip across the railroad tracks and get crushed by a passing forklift.
      And then it hit me... NO FENCES!!  I've never seen a tennis court that wasn't fenced in. Without fences, there would be 20 minute delays between serves while the players ran off to shag balls. An otherwise enjoyable game... would radically suck!
      Anyway... I put a custom BAT fence around the courts, stuffed 2 on a 3x3 lot and gave it some adequate parking. Voila!! Instant Tennis Park!!
      This 3x3 park has all the size, costs and benefits of the game's standard large park. The park was designed to be used with the PEG Trail Parks but works just as well by itself. It does not require that you have the PEG Trail Parks installed. It is fully self-contained and has no dependencies.

      * Like the PEG Krispy Kremes, this lot also uses a BAT modeled parking area instead of textures. This allows true 3D curbs, planters and sidewalks that add a depth and realism to the lot.

      This large (3x3) deluxe plaza is an add-on for the PEG Trail Parks. It can be used with both the standard Trail Parks or the PEG Seasonal Trail Parks version. It can also be used stand-alone as a normal large plaza.
      It is fully self-contained (no external dependencies) with all required elements contained in the accompanying resource file. The lot has the same properties as a normal large plaza. It is Transit Enabled for pedestrians and features a custom soft waterfall background sound-effect. It will appear ion the Parks menu next to the game's default large plaza.
      **This lot has no dependencies.

      This park system combines three updated versions of previous park sets - Monument Park, Urban Gardens and White Sands Park. Mainly I wanted to create the possibility to lay out a good variety of parks, paths and gardens for any type of city - particularly with options for different path textures to be used on the same city tile. You can now have three very distinct park-styles in your city, each with its own character (layout, props, textures) - and you can mix and mingle them any which way you please... and even exchange or unify textures as you desire.

      This will enable you to use the paths, prefab parks, ends, transitions, addons and extensions of all three park sets in one glorious citywide park system.


      OVERVIEW

      * Three complete parksystems, each with a unique style, textures, props and individual pieces

      * A host of possible configurations - Narrow, Wide, Diagonal, Sweeping Curves, Ends, prefab Parks and more

      * New park 'Sidings' for realistic-looking transitions to your roads and avenues

      * Transitions between textures and/or sidewalks that can adapt to your preferred sidewalk textures and mods

      * The ability to exchange or unify the base textures on the fly to suit your taste

      * The option to mix and mingle sections of all three sets any which way you want

      * All items designed to create extended lawns to be enhanced with MMP flora of your choice

      * All items with consistent properties, descriptions and plop helpers, tightly arranged in your menus

      * A host of overlay textures and custom props to make your own matching lots

      * Peace of mind that future sets and addons will be made to match all of the above

      Please note that there is a more in-depth Online Documentation with lots of additional info and many images available as well.


      DEPENDENCIES

      * Paeng Texture Pack v103 (updated version Sep 2011!)

      * Murimk Props 02, v201 (updated version Sep 2011!)

      * BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol01

      * BSCBATPropsMattb325 Vol02

      * BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol02

      * BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01

      * BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol02

      * Porkie Props Vol 01 and Vol 02

      * SPOT (Orientation Helpers)


      DEVELOPER NOTES

      The aim of this overhaul is to 'streamline' the park packs as far as dependencies, general layout and possible variations are concerned. The layout and appearance of the sets have been maintained as much as possible.

      Most of the pieces - including the new 'Sidings' - are layed out to give you nice spaces of well-groomed lawn that you can plant with your own choice of flora - bushes, shrubs, flowers and trees from your personal MMP collections.

      If you don't want to use any of the sidings, you can safely delete the respective subfile(s).

      If you want to exchange or unify any of the base textures, make sure to carefully read the separate instructions included with the 'Texture Changer 205' module (included, but packed separately).

      This MTP 3x3 lot is a simple park featuring a tranquil and soothing pond. Although it is the size of a large park, adjustments have been made for a lower density rural area and the lot has the exact costs and properties of a small park.
      ** This lot requires installation of the PEG MTP SUPER PACK

      This MTP lot is a more rural alternative to the standrad Gazebo lot. Its the same size with the same costs and properties. Its just a tad more rustic looking.
      The lot uses a random prop family so 1 of 3 different custom Gazebo models will display each time you plop the lot. The Gazebos are also nite-lited.
      * This lot doeas not replace the original Gazebo lot.... and should appear in your Parks menu somewhere near the original.
      ** This lot requires the PEG MTP SUPER PACK.
