About This File

Going to a strange town and finding your way about can be a challenge. You've just stepped off the plane and made your way through the terminal. After about 15 minutes of getting lost and collecting your bags you reach the street! Now what? You're supposed to go to this hotel but don't know where it is or if it exists at all. Rather than getting mugged on the way to the EL trains, just flag down a taxi and tell them where to go. It's not 2013 yet so you can get a nice whiff of stale cigarettes while being charged a pretty penny to realize you drove the longest route to your final destination!

About the Upload-
This mod converts the Taxi into a modified Chevrolet Impala. There are 3 different liveries included, based on various taxi companies from the United States. The liveries included are loosely based on  the Yellow Cab Co, but can blend into almost any US-themed setting within the game. The liveries are not dependent on each other and can be used together.

Dependencies?
None required.

       MTP abcvs Crop Duster Landing Strip

      Why upsize when you can downsize!  This is an even smaller, small landing strip to cater for the crop duster airplane, and other small aircraft.

      This landing strip comes complete with a UDI (U-Drive It) crop duster all ready to fly off to fertilize your crops and farms.

      To access the UDI functionality, you will need to have the larger small landing strip built in your tile..  
      ..either the standard issue (cough cough boring) Maxis one, or the snazzy new MTP abcvs Small Landing Strip.

      It is possible to take off and land all the small UDI aircraft at this landing strip... not just the crop duster.  Take off from one landing strip and fly to the other!

      So what are you waiting for..   pick up the crop duster, stunt plane or the sky diving plane and fly on over! 

      With both the the small landing strip and the crop dusting landing strip built, the UDI will randomly pick one of the crop dusters for UDI.

      Plop -                 $500
      Monthly -            $50
      Bulldoze -          $100
      Power-               10
      Water -                0
      Flammability -   0
      Fire Stage -        5
      Pollution -           Air-1 Water-5 Garbage-5 Radiation-0
      Menu -                Airport

      Dependency:
      PEG-MTP Super Pack

      To install unzip and place in plugins folder.  "C:Documents/SimCity4/Plugins"

      To un-install delete the file from plugins folder.

      **The creator of this lot does not take any responsibility for damage to surrounding crops, or associated infra-structure for lack of UDI landing skills.  If all else fails bail out by pressing the ESC button.

      MTP abcvs Small Landing Strip
      This landing strip, is a small yet busy functional airport, designed for your MTP communities and will replace the Maxis Small Landing Strip.
       
      All costs and stats remain the same as its Maxis replacement.
       
      To install unzip and place the lot file in your Plug-ins folder.
       
      To un-install simply delete the file from your plug-in folder, and the original Maxis landing strip will return.
       
      Features include:
       
      Improved taxi-ways with runway lighting.
      MTP / Rural themed textures, flora and props.
      Timed aircraft props to simulate aircraft movement.
      Different day and night timed people and cars.
      Security Guards will come on and off shift during the day and night at the main security checkpoint.
      The security gate on the far side of the airport will line up with the gates on the MTP Econo-Airbase, and the Mountain Airforce Base to provide a paved runway for the cash-strapped MTP airforce.
      UDI - This airport still includes the Skydiving, Crop Dusting and Stunt Plane "U-Drive it" planes.

      Hi all. I recently have been enjoying SimCity 4 again, and specifically building cities with only older style buildings and other amenities. 
      There are a few things that look out of place still in the default Maxis package, but one glaring one for me is the Passenger Trains: 
      I'm hoping someone knows of a skin/automata that will allow the Passenger trains to look as they did in the late 19th/early 20th century era, i.e. steam locomotives and period appropriate cars?
       
      Side note: is there a mod that anyone knows of that would allow for more heavy rail usage in general, or old elevated rail lines over streets and avenues? I know NAM contains el rail pieces that go over streets and avenues, however I can't seem to allow for a junction where lines meet in this respect.

      In this modern world, it has become commonplace for the public at large to own a car and drive to where they need to be. In some regions it's a way of life. Look around at the dealers or in the classifieds; cars are not much more than appliances with rubber tires. They all look and drive the same. And it really doesn't matter if it were sourced from abroad or made at the local factory. They will all leak oil and fall apart as soon as you step off the sales floor. The pages of history wish to discount that, and they say once upon a time cars had character! A set of whitewalls and a lot of chrome were all you needed! The Chevrolet Bel Air is the choice of the modern driver! You will be flying high with it's aerodynamic fins and futuristic curved windshield! They may not be smog or collision friendly like today's cars, but you can still be king of the roadside diner in one!
      About the Upload-
