About This File

These lots are the largest that can be built. They are parks made up of grass textures which may be landscaped, tree-planted, and gardened with MMPs and flora to create your own fresh-air generating, health and well-being facilitating, wilderness in the city.

There are 3 versions using a set of base textures made for this project, and 1 version using the standard grass area 1x1 park in Maxis.  Also included are a set of 6 grass base textures and 1x1 grass area lots with more pollution reduction and park effect.

No Dependencies: There are no external dependencies. The base texture file is included in the zip file download.

🌎 4 Versions of the Park Include:

Ɵ AREA 64 Ecology.
Found in the Parks Menu. Based on the Zoo Reward,  provides maximum Park Effect over 100 tiles.

Ɵ AREA 64 Energy.
Found in the Power Menu and providing 25x wind power.

Ɵ AREA 64 Education.
Found in the Education Menu and providing a School EQ boost 5x the science museum.

Ɵ AREA 64 Transit
Found in the Parks Menu and providing a transit capacity of 1200 in one corner of the lot.

All lots are transit and network enabled, reduce pollution significantly, and have minimal maintenance cost. These lots will moderately impact game speed, it is recommended that only 1 be used in any city, but all 4 may be used safely.

Why are These Lots Called AREA 64?

The maximum number of props allowed on a lot is 1280, including base and overlay textures, so although Lot Editor will allow you to build a lot as large as 64 x 64 with 4096 base textures, when you plop the lot on a city tile it will be missing (4096 - 1280), or 2816 base textures. 

The largest lot that can be built that fits into the 1280 limit is 36 x 35 which equals 1260 base textures.  A 36 x 36 sized lot will have 1296 textures and will be missing 16.  So, the actual largest lot you can build is 36 x 35, but you can only add 16 props to bring the total to the limit of 1280.

Lot tiles are 16 meters wide and there are 64 of them wide in a small city adding up to 1024 meters or about 1 km.  A medium city is 128 squares or about 2 km wide (2,048 meters).  The large city, doubled in size again, is 256 x 16 = 4,096, just over 4 km wide.

Given all the above our mega-lot is (36 x 16) x (35 x 16), factored as (576 x 560) square meters (322,560) which is about equal to one-third of a square kilometer or about one-fifth of a square mile (128 acres).

If a football field is about 1 acre, and a city block is about 2 acres, our mega-lot is (128/2) about the size of 64 city blocks! 

The size of 'AREA 64' is about the same percentage of conservation area (23%) defined under the principle of 'Sustainable Development' as established in 1987.  In SC4, placing this lot in the center of a large tile and populating it with flora will somewhat demonstrate the principle according to the game dynamics.

The Blue Marble (photograph)  earth_seen_from_apollo_17_NASA.png.202007ae8a00bea59e5cfc0d12ca9e07.png  Credit: NASA

The 'Blue Marble' is an iconic photograph of Earth taken at about 29,000 kilometres away on December 7, 1972, by the crew of Apollo 17 on their way to the moon.  The image is used often in conservation presentations and has been made into a base texture and used to make the color-coded menu icons for 'AREA 64'.

Forest and Field Base Textures: (included)

The base textures are compliant with the BSC Texture Index at SC4 Devotion. To make your own, request and use a unique personal Texture ID Range at SC4D.  The Forest and Field Base Textures .dat file may be used freely for content creation as long as reference is made to prevent duplication and potential conflicts in the game software.

Very nice looking 5/5 but I would suggest adding links for the dependencies (even though the description is really long)

      How much education do you need to have in SimCity 4, and how to develop high-tech industry?

        The Memorial City Park is available in three versions and each can be downloaded separately from the STEX, they can be found in the reward menu as it comes with 16 jobs and earns your city $800 a month income from the shop profits, the front entrance of the park and also the entrance to the carpark in version 2 (LH & RH) have been network enabled to give the visual effect of cars stopping or using the car park.
      The Azaleas, Roses, Shop and Wildflowers are all from prop families so if you have more than one of these parks in your city there will be subtle differences between the parks, especially after you have planted trees, etc using God or Mayor mode.
      You may get Blimps or Balloons over your city, you will definitely get fireworks once a year and of course the year would not be complete without a visit from Santa Claus.
      Last but not least this park will have a positive effect on your Air, Mayor Rating and Water in the area surrounding the park.
      ENJOY 
       Lot Details and Information Ploppable City Park with Jobs and Income:
      Lot size: 8 x 8 tiles or 10 x 9 tiles Menu position: Building: Reward, Building: Dog Magnet, Building: YIMBY Jobs (16 Total): Jobs $ : 4,Jobs $$ : 9,Jobs $$$ : 3,R-$ : 4,R-$$ : 9,R-$$$ : 3 Plop cost: § 1600 Bulldoze cost: § 3200 Monthly Income: § 800 Park effect: 32 over 32 tiles Landmark effect: 32 over 16 tiles Max. Fire Stage: 0 Power consumption: 32 MWh/month Water consumption: 32 Gallons/month Air pollution: -32 over 16 tiles Water pollution: -32 over 16 tiles Garbage pollution: 0 over 0 tiles  Compatibility This download is only compatible with SimCity 4 "Rush Hour" or SimCity 4 Deluxe.  Installation Installation: While the park is slope friendly it is also very formal in layout and I would recommend plopping it on flat or leveled ground and due to the size and number of effects and props not to have more than one park per city, there are three versions of this park, each can be downloaded separately from the STEX.
      Version 1 - No Carpark
      Version 2 - With Carpark (Lefthand Drive)
      Version 2 - With Carpark (Righthand Drive)
      Version 3 - With Stream
      I have not included any trees in the park so as to allow people to use God or Mayor mode to plant trees suitable for their city or region, the only place you cannot plop trees is on the lake and the surrounding area covered by the wildflowers, because it can take several attempts to get the right look with your trees I have kept the cost of plopping and deleting this park to $1600/$3200.
      Un-Installing: To un-install the files, simply bulldoze every lot from this download in your cities and delete the files from the plugins folder afterwards.

       Notes about Nightlighting Effects In order to see the nightlighting, you must install the EP1-Update 1 for Rush Hour/SimCity 4 Deluxe, and then afterwards, install the SC4-Update for nightlighting (note: you have to be logged in in order to see the download link). If this update isn't installed, you won't see any lighting effects on custom BAT buildings.  Disclaimer The usage of this download is on your own risk. I try to test my lots extensively, so they should work properly, but errors may still exist. Feel free to modify the lots for yourself and show them in your city journals, but please don't distribute them without asking first.   Feedback and Support Please feel free to comment and if you have any support questions or problems please PM me and I will attempt to answer them to the best of my knowledge, and as quickly as possible.
