    can you make a Krogers, And Kroger Marketplaces and some gas stations

    If I had the BAT ability I would make a Kroger marketplace (the superstore format that is competing with Meijer and Walmart, here in Cinci). I'm most intently doing brands not on the STEX.

  • Excited for these trucks (and more coming).

    Here's the list I have so far that I want to add into the game. I'll do brand-themed ones in the future.

    JB Hunt
    Schneider
    Swift
    Hub Group
    Estes
    YRC
    Landstar
    Mayflower (old livery)
    United Van Lines
    ABF Upack
    Atlas
    Allied

    Old Dominion
    CR England

    These are all looking really good! Mayflower might be a little bright on the eyes as previewed above.

    Kroger

    We have these here, they epitomize malaise for the customer and despair for the employee. This would be a fun model to BAT/lot because of all the little storefronts around the parking lot - prop families here would make each plop quite distinct. It would also be rather gigantic - even potentially modular. These stores also tend to get rather grungy over time, although this trends with the state of the local economy.

    Intermodals

    Given that one of the goals here is to flesh out the horde of brands, not duplicate existing assets: in the interest of making rail and road traffic more cohesive, perhaps it's possible to create livery to match existing automata or props for intermodal trailers, such as are found on the rail lines? It looks like this might already be actually covered quite well with the current set (JB Hunt and Schneider above for example) but some of the shippers like Maersk, SeaLand would be good too.

  • @CT14 intermodals would be super interesting! that's an idea I may pursue in the future.

    I also need to fix the brightness on these things which should not be difficult, but I am going to get the rest of these done, judge in game and then replace what needs to be replaced. The Schneider one is too bright as well, need to go darker. I am also adding cab color variety for these things.

    re: Kroger, I may do that but with a Meijer. I am unsure as of yet...

  • This is going to be an expansive set. I'm pretty excited! Green means they are finished and in the game. I forgot Little Debbie and added their truck on the list. There could eventually be a set for Canadian brands like Day & Ross, as well as a separate set for Grocery ones. If you have one that you want done, now is the perfect time since I have been getting through these quickly.

  • I am, work's just busy. I might do a combo Cities:Skylines/SC4 CJ soon.

    I also have a second truck set on companies I missed, that I am working on. I want to do some Canadian and Mexican companies in this set too. I have other projects non SC4 related like my iRacing team as seen below.

  • If you guys like SC3KU, or still play, I am starting to compile a bunch of the old SC3K custom stuff that is still around on the internet.

        Ever been to a Chinese Takeout, where things were just "not right"? Well, welcome to Sum Ting Wong. There are some shady deals going on here, not enough for the police to really crack down, but just enough that they aren't healthy for the neighborhood.

        Good Day Guys,
        I love random placing commercial buildings like these below. But when the city runs abit for a while. It turns like all buildings look the same..


        Like this... Below here are the commercial buildings I dont want to see.. is there anyway to stop having the same re building buildings... I like to see random and not all the same in a row...
        btw I am using a plop mod that allows to force $$ to build the city.

        Hey guys, I tried to look for CS $ a CO $ from stage 1 to download, but I did not find, do you know any? because I want to use BlockAllBuildings am CS and CO, but I can not find them in stage 1, so they can grow later, because Maxis's are not beautiful, because I like European style, so it does not mix, it can also be W2W, I love it W2W, can anyone fix me?

        Hey guys. I got a question. I hope you can help me. Regarding the stats of stores
        http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Stores
        This building grows on every density, does this building have the same stats with low, medium, and high density? It doesn't make any sense to have the same number of employees with small, medium, and high density.
        Andrews Fashion Center for instance is a building that also grows on low density and provide more than 200 jobs. It doesn't make any sense. http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Andrews_Fashion_Center
        Edit: Maybe the number of § jobs is the one which increase with every density? Is there a way to know how much § jobs every density building provide if that's the case?
