  • Do you even know what you are talking about? I've downloaded the Lot Editor and I don't see anywhere where I can edit the amount of power the power plants generate.

    That comes accross as incredibly rude (although it may be unintentional), remember that we are only trying to help you. I will leti iut pass but i would appreciate if you were more careful next time.

    I know nothing about the lot editor so i cannot answer your question but if you look on the STEX, there are many different power plants; Big, small, futuristic, current tecnologies, producing anything from a small amount of power to a virtually unlimited supply! I am sure you will find what you need!

    If you want to be free of power worries, download this.  However, it uses rather a lot of water so you will also need this.  Downloading these is much cheaper than fooling with the Lot Editor, and what you really need to modify lots is ilive's reader, which has a rather heavy learning curve.

    (Yikes, post #15,000, what a gabber!}

  • What I wanted was to increase the capacity of the power plants so that it would power the region, just like in real life. It seems like in order to do this, I have to learn how to use Ilive's Reader. I know that simply using a mod would be a lot easier, but I just want to try to accompolish exactly what I want before resorting to plopping an ugly cheat building into my cities.

    I wasn't trying to be rude. I was just pointing out that I tried to do this with the Lot Editor, but I saw no way to do it.

     But if anyone knows about any modified Maxis power plants, please do tell.

    EDIT: Ah! It was so easy! Just click on the Building Tweaker, do your modifications, then save as DAT in your plugin folder.
