KOSC presents: King's Community & Regional Park Pack, Volume 2

Introduction

King's Community & Regional Park Pack continues with volume 2 of 2 and much like the first set, covers a myriad of park types. Volume 2 has a heavier focus towards sports courts and complexes and as such, you'll see plenty of new (and renewed) tennis courts, baseball, softball and soccer/football fields for your Sims.

Package Overview

Included in the following package is a set of custom textures and 36 park lots. Additionally there are a set of dugouts by @Glenni and a grouping of parked cars by @MushyMushy, both of whom were kind enough to provide these props for the set.

The parks in this set are broken down into the following categories.

Community Parks - 5 lots: These are the standard community parks similar to the ones in the previous volume.
Royal Trails - 6 lots: This is a set of semi-modular aimed at filling the in-between areas of your wealthier neighborhoods.
Tennis Parks - 4 lots: Tennis-centric lots ranging from small community courts to a large center. Contains a redux (will not override) of the original Green Green Tennis Greens.
Sports Fields - 16 lots: Contains different rotations of soccer fields as well as multi-wealth variants of diagonal and orthogonal softball fields.
Abandoned Parks - 2 lots: These parks are already partially reclaimed by nature and would look great in a post-apocalyptic setting.
Sports Complexes - 3 lots: Large-scale multi-field complexes. Very powerful parks that can massively stimulate city growth. 

General Stats

Park stats are generally designed around their respective wealth. In general:

  • Low Wealth: No R§§§ relief, 50% R§§ relief, full R§ relief. Massively reduced landmark effect (value), park effect (value and radius) and monthly costs.
  • Medium Wealth: 50% R§§§ relief, full R§ and R§§ relief. Moderately reduced park effect (value)
  • High Wealth: Full residential cap relief. Full landmark effect, park effect with increased water consumption and monthly costs.

In addition, all parks share the following property:

  • Air pollution reduction, light water pollution (both grow with respect to park size)

Tennis Parks follow a different formula (inverted values, with full R§§§ relief and weaker relief for R§§ and R§). 
Sports Fields have generally fixed cap and park values determined only by wealth and type (softball/baseball/soccer). These fields do not provide a landmark effect. In particular, lower wealth baseball and softball fields will generate minor amounts of garbage as well.
Abandoned Parks are extremely weak as parks, providing little to no park effect and cap relief and even generating a bit of garbage! They're offset by being especially cheap to plop and free of maintenance costs.
Sports Complexes boast massive amounts of cap relief (progressively weaker by higher wealth) and a massive park effect radius but a much weaker effect value. They are also expensive to plop and have relatively high maintenance costs. 

The Royal Trails set of parks appear near the top of the parks menu while the rest should slot in-between and after the Maxis parks.

Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README.

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. If you want to use DAMN (optional), seen the additional instructions below.

DAMN Users Only

There is a second zip file included that contains DAMN menus for these parks.

You will need DAMN for these menus to show up/work.

Merge the DAMN folder in the zip with the one inside the SimCity 4 install directory Plugins folder (not documents).

For CD/DVD users, the default is - C:/Program Files (x86)/Maxis/SimCity 4/Plugins/DAMN/
For Steam users, the default is - C:/Program Files (x86)
/Steam/SteamApps/common/SimCity 4 Deluxe/Plugins/DAMN/

Drop the zzzzzz_DAMN_Hidden folder into your standard My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder if you want to hide the lots from the normal menus in-game. If you still want access to the original menu icons, feel free to delete this folder entirely.

Texture Replacement

This pack uses another set of textures not included as part of any of my previous dependency packs. Those looking to generate a custom set can find the repository for it here.

Dependencies

Due to the sheer size of this set relative to the first and the need for more variety, the dependency list grows just a bit. These are limited to some more of girafe's HD flora and the Light Replacement Mod. As before, If you've downloaded any of my previous works then you should have a good majority of the required dependencies already.

      Hello,
      If you search "cities skylines" on YouTube, Twitch or similar, you'll get tons of new videos regarding to the game. In the other hand, "SimCity 4" only results a few new videos, mostly created by @Haljackey. Similarly, if search "cities skylines" on comments on videos about city simulators, you'll get tons of results. Otherwise, there are few people commenting about SC4. I agree that C:S is the best city builders yet, but C:S isn't perfect. First, C:S can only runs properly on computers with dedicated graphics. We can't deny that most people will choose ultrabooks (or similar) instead of bulky gaming laptops and unfortunately, they mostly only have an Intel HD/UHD or low-end Nvidia MX series (Vega not counted due to its new appearance). That's because ultrabooks gives the user portability, long battery live, good screen, good keyboard, fast storage (for higher end ones) and while this is overlooked, some people don't need gaming design and its related element (RGBs etc). While some ultrabooks have some sort of dedicated graphics, they usually can only be found on 15" or wider models. And we can't ignore laws of physics, slim & light laptops often suffer the so-called "thermal throttling", meaning the performance will drop to some level, even lower than the base performance. Yes, we could build a PC, but we also can't deny the fact that RAM & GPU prices ($1 roughly Rp14,000) only recently relieved due to the crypto craze. Second, C:S suffer some limitations, especially when the city size is too big to handle by the game. For example, some services don't work when the city size is about 300K due to the agent limitation. Third, with all DLCs bought, you will shell out more than $50 in normal circumstances. That's not cheap plus the PC build/laptop you need.
      So, we need to do something with the SimCity 4 ecosystem. There are lots of problems regarding the ecosystem. First, there are some modding limitations due to its old engine, for instance you can't add new menu structures (not items) by using .dat. You need to use (still not completely uncovered) .dlls and it requires some coding and of course, some legal issues. Second, its limitation making hard for mods to be user-friendly, including the NAM. For instance, in the ideal game you can make 6-lane avenue by just selecting that network and drag as you expect. But in reality, you need to place the "starter piece" of that "network" (technically pseudo-network) and drag it using roads. That's confuses new players who tried to make 6-lane avenue and even expert ones. Third, there are too many mods that again, confuses everyone. For instance, if you want a census building then you need to install RippleJet's (RJ) Census Repository and then you need to install 4 (as I know) dependencies and it's time consuming. And, this is the final example, the well-known CAM Starter Pack. "Experts" gives instructions that the Starter Pack should be installed by the new players, in reality that's not true. Then, the players needs to download dependencies that in total approximately over than 250 MB. And then, the players get punished due to the necessity to install all of the dependencies and configure them. Next, the players need to download other mods as well, according to most recommendations, its over 500 MB again (in reality, it's just needing 13 other mods at 380 MB including NAM and the RJ's Census Repo + deps) and the mods need to be installed and set up if any. And finally, the players will be get a working SimCity 4. This is giving us how broken the ecosystem.
      If you have opinions and responses for the problem, feel free to send replies below. Sorry for my bad grammar and spelling due to I'm not native English speaker. Thanks!

      Please note that this upload is not mine, all the works in this download were created by Kazuki which were originally hosted here. Since those files are no longer available, they have been recovered here on the STEX, so people can continue to download them.
      This package includes three lots that can be used to create walls to separate spaces. Lots for straight, inner and outer corners are contained in the package. Each lot shows a grass texture and has some basic tress upon them. Stats are pretty much identical to the Maxis default grass lot.

      Too much SC4 custom content gets lost on the web as websites come and go. Most Kazuki's content seems lost, except lots that have been salvaged on the STEX : Kazuki RedBrickPlaza Lots 1.0, Kazuki Road Divider Park Lots 1.0 and, relotted by nos17, his street stalls . Here is the original.
      Disclaimer : those are kazuki's only, I am only  saving them for the community.
      --------------
      NB : I have slightly amended Kazuki's own readmes to delete the unreadable parts in Japanese.
