Question is simple. I tried every topic on simtropolis to find a mod to replace ugly, replying maxis industry and agriculture. If I am not wrong, the mods that replace original maxis files are called LOT, right? I am searching a LOT mod that replace original maxis industry and agriculture, also not repetition itself. Also dependencities; I dont care if they havw dependencities but a mod with 10 or more dependencitied are not useful for me.

P.S. : DO NOT show me "Industrial Revolution Mod - Base Pack (Maxis Lots) 1.0" because I already tried that and I do not know why, this mod crashes game in every 3-4 minutes. (When I remove, game works normal but when I reput this mod, game gonna crazy).

for openers. Search SPAM on the STEX for three pages of related developments.

Paeng has done much with respect to Industrial. You might be happier looking at SimPeg. (Free registration).

Actually, a Lot is a file that is just....well....a lot. Like a park, landmark, etc. It's just something that's ploppable. There's no specific name for Mods that replace Maxis files. They're just mods. And you will find that big mods that do things like replace every agricultural or industrial building will have a TON of dependencies. If they didn't use a lot of non-Maxis files, the buildings wouldn't look much different than they already do.

And the Moose gives great advice as usual. The SPAM and other SimPeg stuff is what you want to look at. But as for this:

You must be doing something wrong. It should work fine. The only thing is that you can't install it and go play existing cities. You have to start over from scratch when you install this mod. The problem is that it changes the size of some of the industrial lots, so if you load an existing city, the lots will overlap and the game will crash.

I actually bulldozed all my industrial buildings in my current city to allow them to regrow. If it turns out I messed up everything, then I have a backup of my city from before I installed IRM.

I don't see why that wouldn't work, but it would be a pain in big cities. I would usually recommend doing that before installing the mod though. Good things do not come of overlapping lots.

With the industrial overhaul you either have to start fresh or dezone all the industrial lots before you install it. When I put that in, I was ready to kill my existing region, so I did.
