While there are no static props, there are two timed prop series, one blue, one green, both with the recycling logo.  They are in the "PEG-GarbageTruck_PROP_206.dat" file.  If you want fixed props, I'm pretty sure there is a fairly easy way to convert a prop from RKT4 to RKT1 (I've never done it, so I'm guessing you could replace the RKT4 property with an appropriate RKT1 property).

(Back from a trip abroad with wonky internet... yes, it does exist). I was indeed thinking of Peg's Kit, but it's the truck's transformation into a fixed prop that leaves me scratching my head. Will look into it, though, thanks !

I think the conversion/creation will be fairly simple.  You can use the Prop exemplar for any existing vehicle fixed prop as a template if you need to.

There are two ways to do this:  one super simple way (if you are familiar with Pim-X), and another slightly longer (but not necessarily harder) way using Reader.

Using PIM-X:

1.  After opening PIM-X, find the model you want to use.  There are only two models in the PEG-GarbageTruck_PROP_206.dat file:  one for the blue, and one for the green truck.
2.  Go down to the Prop category, and make sure Ordinary Prop is expanded.
3,  Drag the model file name down and drop it on Ordinary Prop > No Wealth.  You will be asked for an Exemplar name.  After typing one in and clicking OK, you will see your new prop exemplar for a fixed prop with all the correct settings.
4.  Click Close at the bottom, and exit PIM-X.  Your new prop exemplar (.SC4Desc file) will be found at the root of your Plugins folder.

You can't get much easier than that.

This can be done with Reader, but it involves deleting some properties, and adding a property or two as well as providing the correct values for those properties.  I won't post the necessary steps for this route, unless you decide you want to use Reader, rather than PIM-X.

change both Timed Prop values to 0 I did ; not sure  it worked...)

you need to create another TGI for the new prop, or the pox will come (now curable and all, but still a nuisance)

Carquest is mostly done. Need to work on the interior a bit and it will be good to go for next week. I am also making progress on a retextured version that is a Big 5 Sporting Goods store. These warehouse-style retail buildings are ubiquitous across the country and the Big 5 is based on one in Richfield, UT (but won't be completely similar). A small town/rural sporting goods store doesn't exist on Simtropolis really so this actually fills a need. The texturing obviously is unfinished but I have the general model down. The Carquest, respectively, is based off of one in Lake City, FL, but with some differences in texturing (the red-blue motif that is used in some of their other stores for example). I'm also releasing a Snap-On Tools van with the Carquest. Those who work on their cars by themselves need tools to install the auto parts, somehow.

I need this. We had this sort of idea in past, but for me it's kinda of a pity that these stations have problems with their names (You can't rename it without changing everything and the changes only last for one game session). It will be pretty awesome if you take this into consideration.

      Hello,
      I want to start a gaming YouTube channel. However, there are many obstacles:
      I have just SimCity 4 and as you know, the game isn't a great game to start with. So, I need Cities: Skylines, which leads me to the next problem. My computer isn't powerful enough to play C:S because just I'm using HD Graphics 3000. 4 GB of RAM is fine. My internet speed both upload and download is really slow, 1 Mbps and sometimes error without reasons. I don't have camera for future facecam (not really a concern). I don't have empty external hard drive (1 TB is recommended) for the next thing I will discuss. Luckily, there is a Geforce iCafe-certified internet cafe near me (according to Nvidia, the participant cafes must have 9xx or 10xx GTX-series cards and 50 or more GTX 1060s or higher; enough for C:S). However, it still not fixing the problem #1: lack of C:S. I just have around $16, which isn't enough to buy even the vanilla. I will not talking about gray/black ways to getting it (because it against the site rules). Can you help me to getting started? Or, should I learn another skills instead, like 3D modelling or programming?
      Thanks.

      Looking at my profile I see it was four years ago when I first happened upon these forums.
      I really liked SimCity 4.  I bought the "SimCity Limited Edition"  and I wasn't happy with it at all. So I kind of fell away from the game. Recently I decided to get back into it.
      When my Mom died & I was moving into her house, I found the old "SimCity 4 Box" set during my packing. All of the fun I had playing the game was enhanced when I learned that I could create & use my own maps. I have always been into photography so I have Photoshop on my pc. I had so much fun making those maps, & tweaking them to work better.
      Many years ago I did buy the STEX Collection of discs, but I can't find them now. Being a pack rat helps & hinders all at the same time.... you know you have it somewhere, you just can't locate it within  everything else. So I will be purchasing everything again (I always seem to find the originals after I purchase the replacements). I'm asking for a little help, please...? I remember having a problem, years ago, when I had items stored in the wrong folder & it would create issues when trying to use stuff that was dependent on it. The help,.... would any of you experts be so kind as to direct me to creating the right folders for the right items in order to keep all of it working properly, please?
      I will be downloading the NAM as well, but I won't do so until I have the new discs so I can get it all stored properly. I was pretty disgusted before when I couldn't use certain items & I really want to avoid that this time. 
      Until I get the discs I will be dabbling in photoshop creating maps.
      Thank you in advance for ANY help you may provide.

      This map is meant to represent the typical terrain of the russian far east.
      The map includes the stretch of Amur river that i used as a base, hilly terrain with a few small mountains and rivers,most of the map is completely fictional except for the river and surrounding hills.
