About This File

KOSC presents: Diego Del Llano's Puerto Vallarta Growables - Icon Vallarta

Introduction

Diego's Puerto Vallarta Growables is a new series of re-lots featuring @Diego Del Llano's fantastic BATs that were based in his hometown. As quite of few of these buildings had their bases graciously removed for lotting, I've decided to take another step beyond just converting them into growables. This first release will cover Icon Vallarta, a luxurious condo building located on the beachfront in Puerto Vallarta.

Package Overview

The building was lotted in several different configurations, from your typical small footprint growable to a massive two and three tower complex. Some lots take advantage of the fact that the real-life version is located in a tropical climate. Thus, several lot will have palm trees and tropical plants as its primary flora source. The layout of the largest complex in particular is loosely based off its actual real-life counterpart from the layout of the entrances down to the relative placement of the pool and the buildings.

Included in the following package are a total of 5 lots: All are R§§§ growables.

General Stats

The included growable lots will provide occupancy anywhere from 915 R§§§ to 2738 R§§§ sims, based on the number of buildings in the lot. The lots themselves are offered in the following configurations.

  • 3x2 front, stage 8; 3x3 front, stage 7; 4x4 left corner, stage 7 for the single tower variant
  • 6x8 front, stage 6 for the dual tower variant
  • 6x10 front, stage 7 for the triple tower variant

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

Install Instructions

Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. Since the original buildings used separate IDs for both the MaxisNite and DarkNite models, two separate zips are included at your convenience.

      Hello,
      We have ideas for city simulation games but we don't have places to discuss and show off aside from forums. While this is working well, it can slows down consensus-based decision making. For instance, the SimCity 4's plugin redistribution problems remain unfixed completely due to lack of proper consensus among file exchanges. These problems are preventing the bigger challenges to be solved including the heavily-discussed better plugin downloading system.
      The Citysim Conference attempts to making the ideas into reality by grouping citysim community figures (game makers, modders etc) into one physical places. This year's Citysim Conf addresses open-source city simulators and SC4's plugin redistribution and downloading systems. For the place, we want to be accessible by everyone, especially Asian figures (who accounts for awesome mods). This will be decided by consensus. The time for the conf is around May 15, 2018. For who are asking for logo, preparations and other media, we want the figures who competent in the field to make it well (logo can be made by @Ganaram Inukshuk etc).
      Share your own replies (opinions included). Replies are respected. Thank you for your attention.

      Hello,
      I want to modify the startup parameter of SC4 on my Linux. Yes, I can accomplish it with editing the app entry by Linux menu entry editor but I wanted to be baked into the shortcuts, much like Windows. The question is, how do I edit Windows shortcuts on Wine?
      Thanks.

      County Supreme Court V1.0.0 (Reward) Vanilla Version
       
      NYBT New York County Supreme Court by Seraf
       
      1 - INTRODUCTION/OVERVIEW
       
      This is the 3rd Re-lot in a series of Rewards based on BAT models made by other artists. This version is made for users using the Vanilla version of this game.
      There is also a version of this lot available, if you’re using Colossus Addon Mod CAM 2.1 by InvisiChem.

      This upload, a recreation of the New York County Supreme Court made by Seraf, is a beautiful neoclassicist building from New York City, hexagonal in outline, designed by Guy Lowell. It is one of main buildings in the NY civic center.
      This recreation is a very loose interpretation of the original lot, because this building is originally located in a very dense area in New York City and the surrounding buildings are not available for download.
      This BAT comes on a new lot and features a custom icon and custom query window. I used seasonal trees here, so it takes a while, before they appear on the lot. The nightlight is like the original BAT.
      You will find this lot in the Rewards menu right next to the In-Game Courthouse.

      Why is it a Reward and only available onces?
      This Reward is made for players, who want to work and reach a goal in the game and finally get WHAT? A REWARD of course…
      You don’t like it? Well, than this download in NOT for you!

      NOTE ABOUT THE DEPENDENCIES:
      This BAT is for you, if you like good looking and detailed buildings in your city. There are so many awesome creations like textures and other props made by the community out there, and I think, we should use them.
      You don’t like dependencies? Well, again, then unfortunately this download is NOT for you!

      NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:
      I am sure the building was rendered for Maxis Nite, but it should work both with the original Maxis Nite and the Dark Nite Mods.
       
       
       
       
      Stats (REWARD):
       
      ·         Lot size:                                  8x10
      ·         Plop cost:                               §243,000
      ·         Bulldoze cost:                        §24,300
      ·         Monthly cost:                         §2430 (Government buildings department)
      ·         Pollution:                                 14 (Air)/ 7 (Water)/ 139 (Garbage )/ 0 (Radiation)
      ·         Pollution radii:                        8/10/0/0
      ·         Power consumed:                 139 MWh/month
      ·         Water consumed:                  556 cu m/month
      ·         Landmark effect:                   265 over 65 tiles
      ·         Park effect:                             265 over 65 tiles
      In order to get this (Reward), the following requirements need to be met (hard difficulties):
       
      ·         City population:                     400,000
      ·         Regional population:            1,000,000
      ·         Mayor rating:                          77
      ·         Courthouse:                           1
      ·         Parks in the city:                    1000
       
       
      2 - USE
       
      You need to extract this archive to your root plugins folder, it should then create a folder MSRB\[NAME OF BAT], where [NAME OF BAT] represents the name of this download item. Within that folder, you will find all the game-relevant files and a sub-folder containing the PDF Readme! and some screenshot(s). I strongly suggest that you keep your plugins organized, this original download in a safe place and remove all pics and this description from your plugins. These are not needed for this BAT to work.
      If you no longer wish to use this download, proceed as follows:
      1.      Bulldoze all lots pertaining to this download
      2.      Save all the cities and exit the game when you're done bulldozing
      3.      Remove the associated files from your plugins folder
      Hint: Just to be sure, I recommend moving the undesired files somewhere else and doing some checks before you delete them permanently. This way, if it turns out you forgot to bulldoze something, you can add it back in temporarily until you're done.
       
       
      3 - DEPENDENCIES
       
      There are a few dependencies for this Reward here, and you'll need the original upload of the BAT to see the building:

      For anyone who hasn't discovered it yet, @simmaster07 has done some helpful and lovely work (and brilliant) for those of us in the Mac community. 
      He has converted/reprogrammed a couple of .dll plugins and made them into .so plugins so that they can be read by a Mac. He has created a plugin loader to load those .so files.
      First Things First
      Be aware of the following notice on the MacInjector page. Back up your files. To be safe, I made a back up of my plugins and regions directories.

      Download & Install MacInjector
      I will try and give a painstakingly detailed step by step. 
      https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/32047-sc4macinjector-a-dynamic-code-plugin-loader-for-mac/
      Follow the link above, read the "About This File" notes, and click on the "Download File" button
      You can try opening the package directly from your Downloads folder (double clicking) but if your security is like mine, you will get a message that "“SC4MacInjector.pkg” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer."
      In order to bypass that security, right click on the .pkg and choose "Open" from the menu. You will then get a pop-up message "“SC4MacInjector.pkg” is from an unidentified developer. Are you sure you want to open it?"
      Click "Open" and the installer will open. Follow the instructions on the installer.  Three changes I noticed after the install. 1 - When I have SC4 running, if I switch windows and leave the game running, the icon in my dock changed from the SC4 icon to a black system icon. 2 - The first time I restarted the game after installation it reverted to the Timbuktu tutorial region so I had to navigate back to the region I was building in. 3 - There is now a "libinjector.dylib" file in my plugins directory. (Leave it there.)
      None of these are any concern - just don't want you to be surprised.  
      Great! I have a New Tool! What Do I Do With It?
      Hopefully there will be more future developments, but for now I know of at least two. (If I discover more or if you discover more, please comment and add them!)
      Buggi's Cheats
      https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/32048-buggis-extra-cheats-for-mac/
      This allows Mac players to use Buggi's extra cheat codes (for those so inclined - no judgement). I know I'm working on recreating a specific city right now and not playing the traditional game, per se. Being able to to type "Moolah 1000000" and instantly have $1 million to develop with sped up my process.
      Take the downloaded file "ExtraCheatsMac.so" (it's not zipped - it's ready to go) and move it to your plugins folder. Done. When you are in-game all you have to do is hit Ctrl-x and then either type your command/cheat code (if you know it) or right click in the dialog box and a list of commands will appear.
      Real Upgradeable City Halls 1.1.0
      https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/31339-real-upgradeable-city-halls/
      When you click on the download button, choose the Mac only version. Open the zip file and place the .dat and .so extracted files in your plugins directory. Done.
      Have FUN! 
      That's all for now! Have fun! Build the region of your dreams! I am NOT a technical person, but post questions for clarification below and I'll do my best or someone will hopefully have an answer. And THANK YOU @simmaster07 for your work while you juggle school! Also thank you, @Hamish for the suggestion to write this up. If it needs to go elsewhere, please do whatever needs to be done.
