@RRetail How big is this going to be?

I'm thinking it would look better in a stripmall . The one near my house is in a strip mall, and it looks just like the one you made.

The building itself is on a lot size of 4x5. This was made purposely bigger then the department stores as the department stores were meant to be in scale with SG's RLS Mall. I strive for realism you know....

I do eventually plan to do just that as most of these greenhouse Krogers were a part of a strip mall sometimes even with a Kmart. Got to start somewhere.

I like but I’d like to see one with a Starbucks. Also like to so maybe a longer front building with this greenhouse look also if you’d like a picture I could get you one.

You'll get what you get and you won't throw a fit. The size is right as it is.

Couple shots of a partially updated Stadium District.  Thought about changing the textures over to match the red bricks I used in the Government District but decided to keep the original.  I did update street lights, trees, landscaping, tables and chairs, and other props to bring them in line with the props I used in the Government District and other recent re-lots I've done.  The large stadium lot still needs to be re-lotted.

Also, has anyone noticed images disappearing on older posts?  I haven't visited this page in awhile and notice the images in many of my older posts (and other users) are gone.

Yup I noticed. There is a workaround, use the attachment option available instead of html links.

Its working for me....so far.

Interesting.  They were showing when I posted them this morning.  I used to use the manual attachments but eventually that space fills up and becomes unusable.  @CorinaMarie, idk that you’d be the right mod for this but you walked me through the attachment thing before.  Is there a problem with Imgur on here now?  I’d rather not use up my attachment space and I was informed by many here that Imgur was the best option for posting photos.  On top of that I’ve noticed the performance of Simtropolis lately has left a lot to be desired.  Maybe some internal updates are happening?

@nos.17 got the thread linky posted before me, but yes, imgur is blocking hotlinked photos from ST.

For using the attachment option there is a linky when creating a post called Choose Files... and once selected those will show below the post while you are creating it. Then in the message body click the cursor where you want one to show and then click the relevant image. It'll pop into place. I then immediately press the <enter> key twice to position what I'll type next. Note: It's best to use compressed .jpg format to have the smallest file size possible which eats up less of the attachment size allotment.

For the site slowdown a couple days ago, yes this was due to some site updating and some bugs which occurred. Dirk has rolled that back and we should be back to normal speed now.

Yo, guys --

I have been using IMGUR --

The pics I posted on 13 April are still displaying.  Perhaps it's because I use the forum code links -- yes ??  No ??  *:party:

Indeed they are, and I can confirm some very good news...

As I've just announced here and it sounds like you've already discovered, Imgur has overturned the block on Simtropolis after a successful appeal. So this means Imgur posted images inside this thread or anywhere on the site (including CJs) will now show again as they did previously. *;)

@Simmer2 beautiful!!! Most certainly it will be used, I would even say that even more than the rail version, as GLR is much more flexible for tunnelling it (as subway), so is easier to make a full line with only tunnels and trenches.

Still, a 7.5 deep version would be a nice extra with a lot of uses too...

Urbanization, roads, highways, rail tracks ? Today I´v linked some video of you, sometime ago to find some greenery and some other questions, maybe raised ? Some weeks ago I downloaded your plugin folder; short detailed lots if present like parks or special custom lots are sacraviced for skyscrapers and basicly NAM absolute essentials and performnce ? SC4 gameplay hard mode strongly in he driection of vanilla gameplay or lack of time may justify a turn into this direction. Still I like what I see in turn of transport networks, wich are awesome, yet you clearly bring te message what your gameplay stand for city building first !

Sincerrely yours,

    I believe it's called New Anfield.  Though I searched high and low for a link and can't seem to find it.

    @Haljackey You are welcome anytime!  Though you may be slightly disappointed in the lack of freeways...

        This park system combines three updated versions of previous park sets - Monument Park, Urban Gardens and White Sands Park. Mainly I wanted to create the possibility to lay out a good variety of parks, paths and gardens for any type of city - particularly with options for different path textures to be used on the same city tile. You can now have three very distinct park-styles in your city, each with its own character (layout, props, textures) - and you can mix and mingle them any which way you please... and even exchange or unify textures as you desire.

        This will enable you to use the paths, prefab parks, ends, transitions, addons and extensions of all three park sets in one glorious citywide park system.


        OVERVIEW

        * Three complete parksystems, each with a unique style, textures, props and individual pieces

        * A host of possible configurations - Narrow, Wide, Diagonal, Sweeping Curves, Ends, prefab Parks and more

        * New park 'Sidings' for realistic-looking transitions to your roads and avenues

        * Transitions between textures and/or sidewalks that can adapt to your preferred sidewalk textures and mods

        * The ability to exchange or unify the base textures on the fly to suit your taste

        * The option to mix and mingle sections of all three sets any which way you want

        * All items designed to create extended lawns to be enhanced with MMP flora of your choice

        * All items with consistent properties, descriptions and plop helpers, tightly arranged in your menus

        * A host of overlay textures and custom props to make your own matching lots

        * Peace of mind that future sets and addons will be made to match all of the above

        Please note that there is a more in-depth Online Documentation with lots of additional info and many images available as well.


        DEPENDENCIES

        * BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol02

        * Porkie Props Vol 01 and Vol 02

        * SPOT (Orientation Helpers)


        DEVELOPER NOTES

        The aim of this overhaul is to 'streamline' the park packs as far as dependencies, general layout and possible variations are concerned. The layout and appearance of the sets have been maintained as much as possible.

        Most of the pieces - including the new 'Sidings' - are layed out to give you nice spaces of well-groomed lawn that you can plant with your own choice of flora - bushes, shrubs, flowers and trees from your personal MMP collections.

        If you don't want to use any of the sidings, you can safely delete the respective subfile(s).

        If you want to exchange or unify any of the base textures, make sure to carefully read the separate instructions included with the 'Texture Changer 205' module (included, but packed separately).

        In episode #1, we kickstart the city by building up a small island and than looking to spread out our city in the next episode. We so far have began to build our skyline, and commercial districts and the iconic japan neon light street. Project Japan is a humble attempt to build a somewhat realistic looking Japanese city situated somewhere between Okayama and Kobe on the northern shore of the Harima-nada sea. Japanese city series are almost non-existent, perhaps because of the serious ack of Japanese themed assets on the workshop. Finding inspiration can be tricky. Therefore, revamps are to be expected throughout the series, as i get better at building Japanese cityscapes and/or new assets become available.

        For what I’m trying to accomplish, as far as I can tell, I should be using either SC4 Tool or the iLive Reader. I would like to be able to edit certain parameters of buildings in the game. For example, changing the radius for police, fire, education, etc. I would also like to change how much power is generated from power plants, how much water is generated by water pumps and towers, etc. Basically do everything (hopefully) that can be done in SimCity 3000 here.
         
        I’ve tried both SC4 Tool and iLive Reader but can’t seem to find the buildings I’m searching for. I’m truly starting from scratch and need some assistance on either of these programs. Any help is greatly appreciated!
