About This File

City Link Transport Hub, by Mattb325.
---------------------------------------

This is a purely fictional 1980's style building designed as a transport interchange suitable for downtown and other built-up areas.

The podium floors of this building act as a rail, subway, bus, underground park & ride and pedestrian interchange. It also allows freight trains to pass through the station. It has a total capacity of 165,000 passengers so is perfect for big cities.

The two towers are also functional and provide 1,600 jobs across all wealth levels.

In game, this building is found in the Miscellaneous Transport Menu (about half-way down near the subway line).

Once placed, drag two rail lines right through the building and connect the front and back of the lot to the road network using street tiles. 
To activate the subway component of this building, simply drag the subway line anywhere into the lot (note: as this is a multifuctional lot that there is no traditional 'stub' that you have to connect to as seen in other subway buildings) and of course then connect it to other subway stations within your city. 
Similarly if you wish to activate the bus component of the building, simply place a bus stop somewhere else on your city tile. 

If you don't wish to use any of the subway, rail or bus features, that's fine, simply don't connect that particular feauture to the lot (you may end up with the advisors nagging about 'mass transit 101' but you can safely ignore their wailing). 
At a minimum however, the building must be connected to the road, water and power networks or it will abandon. (N.B. I have put the 'bleeding obvious' in here as some twit recently told me that batters now have to provide "customer service" even when they are no longer active......as if providing all of this for free or your enjoyment isn't enough...lowest common denominator, here we come...yeah, baby :dead: :yawn:

This is the first in a series of multi-function transport lots that I will be releasing shortly. As this one doesn't involve NAM elevated networks and is more of a visual alternative to the ever-popular ninja boulevard kiosk, I have decided to release it separately from the upcoming pack.

Lastly, a ****huge***** thankyou to RSC204/MGB204 who provided the modding for this file: you can be certain that the stats and values behave according to NAM methodologies. *:party:

NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File!

If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. 
Either: (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) *recommended* OR (http://gizmo.aplaceforwebsite.com/index.php) OR Mashty Nite Mod: (http://hide-inoki.com/bbs/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=764)

NB: External sites may require you to create an account (or log in with said account) prior to downloading. See, this is more customer service so you don't have to think :zzz:

---------------------------------------


NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:

The parking textures you see in some of the images are adjacent to the lot and are used as fillers. The main parking provided by this lot is the large underground area as well as a little bit at the back.

---------------------------------------

DEPENDENCIES:

To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins:

*BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1180)
*BSC Textures Vol01 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90)

NB: External sites may require you to create an account (or log in with said account) prior to downloading. See, this is more customer service so you don't have to think :zzz:

OPTIONAL DEPENDENCIES:

*Network Addon Mod V36 (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/26793-network-addon-mod-NAM-for-windows-installer/).

I have tested this in Vanilla mode without the NAM, and it basically works as intended. But honestly, if you intend to use this without the NAM, everyone will judge you harshly :evil:

*SC4Fix: third-party patches (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/30883-sc4fix-third-party-patches-for-sc4/). If you use the NAM or even play the game, you will want this file. Enough said :-)


---------------------------------------

To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

Thanks.

MY GOD!!!!!!!  I don't say that often or ever.  But this work deserves that praise.  The detail is so unhumanly wonderful.  Mattb325, if I wasn't so into women I would propose to you.  LOL!

I must confess, I had only brief look on it in game and didn't test it in depth - but then, if - in sc4 community - mattb325 and rsc204 put their heads together to make a transit hub, it's like - in heaven - Leonardo Da Vinci and Charles Babbage thinking of a check-in counter for angels. Who needs to test that in depth to know it will work divine.

This is absolutely fantastic! I have just the spot to place this in my city!

I really like the form of the towers, and they look generic enough to fit in any city, yet unique enough that they stand out, plus, you know, it's a transit station. :bunny:

      INTRODUCTION
      Welcome to the King's Workshop! This is a central hub for all of my lot projects and well as any discussions associated with them. Most of my content is currently geared towards lotting and texturing but I may try my hands at some newer stuff in the future.
      I don't really have a set timeline of thing to work on so most projects are acted on impulsively. Starting 2018, I'm gonna try to focus my releases and plan ahead a little. Hopefully this will aid me in actually completing some of this stuff but as usual, there no guarantee whether I'll disappear for another 2-3 months at a time.

      This is a relot of Maxis' Grand Rail Station reward, wich didn't age well in comparison with the great custom content made by the community. In addition to general redecoration of the surroundings, a second dual track rail passage has been added, as well as some timed passenger car props and visual TE for street and a custom icon.
      Dependencies:
      BSC Textures Vol 02
      BSC Textures Vol 03

      Notes:
      As with any lot overrides, it's recommended to bulldoze any existing instances of the Grand Rail Station in your desired region before (un)installing this plugin, otherwise it may lead to problems ranging from texture and prop mismatches to pathing issues. You can plop them back afterwards.
      This relot was originally built for personal purposes, hence the amount of dependencies
      Enjoy!

      A 26-story building located in downtown São Paulo collapsed after being consumed by a fire. The building was abandoned some years ago and was invaded and occupied by several families with no financial conditions, some of them immigrants who came from other countries. Fortunatelly firefighters did a good job and took almost everyone out of the building before it collapsed.

      A very sad moment was when this guy was almost being rescued when the building collapsed. People said he managed to get out of the building earlier, but he went back to try to save people on the top floors:
