@rsc204 Awesome! Just sent you a message

@matias93 thank you! I was thinking the same thing as I would love to get something up on the STEX/Devotion

@monkeywater these are Bipin Concrete walls uploaded on his behalf to the STEX by @Belfastsocrates, however I’m using the prop included in that download on lots I’ve made and modified with the reader to make them slope compatible :)

Columbia is currently celebrating that its metro area has surpassed the 2 million population, making it ever my most populated region ever in SC4. *:party:

This is my best take at a North American inspired city, with its strict grid pattern in the downtown and inner city districts (north-south streets are numbered, east-west avenues bear the names of US capital cities), a towering downtown with art deco and international style skyscrapers, decaying industrial areas, a couple of neighborhoods divided by busy highways, elevated subways at the inner city and sprawling ritzy suburbs.

Expansion will be fun, which such a hilly terrain...

Oh wow!  That will be a fantastic BAT once you finish it.  It's a definite download for me when it's released.  Nice work.

Very nice work so far...!   While having an extra engine at the back is done, more often than not they are placed at the front.   *:)

Hi Robert.

...and that is not possible in SC4, thus my statement " For further detailed information on this project please visit my Dev thread over at SC4D (link at the bottom of this post) "

There you will read my research and conclusions of my experiment on the matter. Here is the link to make things easier. http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=17211.msg525973#msg525973

           So, I haven't played in about 10 years. I re-installed the game about a month ago, which was an adventure in itself, with the windows 10 disc situation. I have spent over two weeks building my plugins folder, trying out different terrain mods and tree controllers. I've downloaded about 2gb worth of custom content, (half of that is dependencies). Many of the lots I got, I want to edit. The lots themselves and especially the properties, including cost, capacity, coverage, etc. I am pretty familiar with the Maxis Lot Editor and Plugin Manager, as I used to do a little custom editing to lots long ago. If I download a custom lot with a Lot, Model and Desc. file. I can easily do what I need to do in the aforementioned programs. Since my return, there have been many changes. Many new lots have a DAT file, which is new to me. There are new programs, namely the SC4PIM (or X-PIM) and Ilive's reader. These also are new to me and I'm struggling with them, even with the tutorials found here. I'm not very savvy when it comes to computers. I'd say on a scale of 1-10, I'm like a 4 or 5. But I can follow directions. I'm sure, given enough time, I'll get familiar with them. Let me try to get to my questions...The first thing I wanted to modify are the substations by Simmer2.
       
       These are beautiful lots and I'd like to use them, but I want to make some changes to suit my needs. First, I'd like to make the substations Waste to Energy Plants. This will eliminate the need for landfills and power plants all over my region. Secondly, I'd like to change the cost, power output, etc. But since these are DAT files. I can't do that with the programs I am used to. I may be able to do it in the reader program, but I am totally befuddled when I try to examine these there. So, I thought I'd just relot them since I have all the props I need. Also, these questions apply to other relots I plan to do, even if I do figure out how to do these particular lots in the reader.
       
        As I was searching the lot files here, I came across the BLaM Blank...
       
       
         I decided to give these a try, but I have run into what may or may not be a problem, and I was hoping to get some clarification. So, what I did in preparation to do the relots was I copied the blank.
       

       
      And I made three copies. Changing them to this...
       

       
      Changing the first part of the file name, but leaving the numbers as were. But when I open the PIM, it only shows one of these. The last one alphabetically. Which is Substation_3.
       

       
      I'd like to know why this is. I wasn't sure if I should change the numbers a little or get rid of them altogether. Would it matter if I named the file: DD_Substation_1.SC4Model? I'm not sure what the numbers mean or if I should even mess with them. If I leave these like this and I make say, 10 lots renaming them in like manner, will the last DESC file to load control all lots with that blank model? Another thing I notice here is the word "blank" appears under the column "Name". Is this what's going on here? If so, how do you change that? Anyways, these are the questions I have thus far. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Even more so if someone can walk me through making these changes in the reader program concerning these particular files.

      There is a tonne of amazing custom content on the exchange including maps.
      A lot of the maps I've installed and played are laid out in large cities only however and in a perfect grid. I prefer randomness with medium and small cities scattered about.
      How can I change the config file on an existing region without messing up the existing terrain that I like?
