This is to encourage competition in the network modding like SC13 did.

The NAM is already held up as an example in the MODPACC proposal, and it was produced through the result of cooperation among transportation network modders over the past 13 1/2 years, not competition between them.  It's a package containing virtually every released RUL-bound transportation item, and by virtue of that, ensures the compatibility and inter-operability of those components to the greatest extent possible.  Competition in this area isn't going to create innovation--it will merely recreate the seaport controller fiasco, and the permission entanglements that have, to date, prevented MODPACC-type packages from being legitimately created for buildings/lots.

Also, consider the absurdity of wanting to make the SC4 community more like the SC2013 community (which is basically dead, and has been for a couple years now).

I'm feeling ideologically relieved and comforted by this comment <3

      I have become more familiar in 3Ds Max and even gained enough expertise in it over the past few months that I think my skill level is approaching a point where I think I am good enough to start making mods for Cities: Skylines. I started practicing in 3DsMax to make brick rowhouses for the game Banished but since I am more interested in Cities: Skylines now and my buildings were practice so I can mod C:S, I decided to start a new project of making buildings just for Cities: Skylines.
       
      I whipped this building up over the course of 4-7 hours today. It would have taken only 1 or 2 hours had I not made a ton of mistakes that required me to start from the beginning.

      It will normally grow on a 4 tile wide x 3 tile deep lot with the ability to grow on a 4x4 lot with a backyard.
      FYI, I plan on making a ColorMask for the outer 2 rowhouses so it could have more variety (bright red, pink, tan, and whitewashed).
       
      Please give me feedback to help me improve the quality of my creations.
       
       
      Thank you!

      Hello,
      I personally dislike (but not hating) how @BSC packs the dependencies. They're making packing deps in .exe and (making worse) creating it in huge number, so I can't install it fast like @Pegasus did. Also, Pegasus is packing the previous files, making the installing much easier (for instance, CDK3 Super Pak or The Terrain Kit) with his own. I don't hate BSC, they're producing quality content and the popular mods: Census Repository and CAMeLot Counter, aren't possible without BSC. I'm using Linux, how do I install the dependencies fast?

      I have the RCI demand mod and installed CAM (Skyscraper) to increase stages but now the RCI demand mod does not work anymore and am hoping someone has a fix of some kind?

      Hi all!
      Like most of you folks, I have a huge back-catalog in a spreadsheet somewhere of assets I plan on making some day.
      Well, here's my list.. This is just the stuff I want to make, It's alright if there is already a good asset on the workshop for it, it's just for my own pleasure.
      This isn't going to replace the refinery project, I'll still keep updating that thread. I just wanted to have a place to keep my other assets organized and seek advice from everyone.
      I'll have to clean up the list at some point, but for now it's just a data dump. I have some more things I would like to make, but I don't have a design picked out yet, so I left them off for now.
