  • Thank you everybody for the likes! *:)


    Today, just a small update, with some modifications made to the transitions (mainly OWR-2 on OWR-1), the addition of the end of networks (cul-de-sac), and a slightly bigger modification for The network of roundabouts.


    You may have noticed the presence of new networks, there is the OWR-2 / code M03 (one-way road of Maxis, two lines) with the markings M03a and without the markings M03b. It is now on this new network that I work.

    There is also the new OWS-2 network (with and without marking, code P23a / b), this is the continuation of the OWS-1. This network is still at a hypothetical stage, I do not know if I will, but I think it may be as useful to have one-way roads two lines as one-way streets two lines.  I will think about it. *:???:

    That's all for now, if you have any criticism or suggestions do not hesitate! *:thumb:

  • Tonight just an image that presents all the networks created so far. I finished the network M03, and the network P23 arrives at the end, soon I propose the images. :)
    The pedestrian crossings have changed color, in order to make them less fluorescent yellow. Now they have a tint rather close to yellow-orange, inspired directly by the color of the Swiss pedestrian crossings.

    That is one cracking set of textures! All the little details are great - I especially like the island zebra-crossing on the left.

    Lovely work *:) Like _Michael mentioned - all the little details you've incorporated into this set are fantastic.

    I also really like the new color on the zebra crossings too. The old one was too saturated IMO - I think you've found the right balance now.

  • Thank you both for your comments, tonight the sequel! *:thumb:

    I finished the networks M03 (OWR-2) and P23 (OWS-2). Before tackling a new network, I am going to make changes to all networks to make them more realistic about certain details such as the way cars (the tire marks on the tar). Here are the images of the two networks:

  • Hello everybody!

    Today, just a small presentation of the network N13 (OWR-1) that is completed. I redid the textures more accurately, the marks of passage of vehicles are cleaner and right, and I redid road marking.

    I have to make the same changes for the network N07 (AVE-2) and then I will create a new texture set (Avenue Maxis).

    See you soon! *:)

  • Hello everybody!

    First of all, I wish you all happy holidays! *:thumb:
    I'm doing a little update to show you some textures parts of the network I'm currently working on (M04 - Avenue Maxis / AVE-4). It takes a little longer to do than the other networks I've created so far, because it's two tiles wide. I will finish this network soon, then I will do the NAM TLA-3 network.

    Good evening to all and see you soon! *:)


    These are examples, this does not represent all the possibilities that there are with respect to markings

    T - Type 1



    T - Type 2

    Did you use your textures on custom lots or you replaced the ones on the networks?

    Anyway, this is simply beautiful, even if just shows a little bit of the modularity and flexibility of your huge project

    That is looking very cool - I assume they are all lots with MMPS etc? The corner buildings with the bunting between them (upper left), where can I find them? I have the Bern W2W set, but I don't think these are in it - thanks!

        I am just discovering NAM's powerful features, and in the phase of learning to use these amazing expansions.
        What about those tiles, where a Curve road has been placed; is it possible to "connect" it to the other elements? I mean cosmetically.
        See the picture.
        At sign 1, there are no bench between the road and the houses. (At here, two 90 curve connected to each other)
        At sign 2, almost similar. 
        Is there any trick to make these tiles more "elegant", or just try to avoid to create this kind of parts?

        Hey guys! so with the hint of a road modding tool in the next DLC arriving, and presuming it's something like Network Extensions let's discuss what roads would be cool to add!
        I've looked at the source code of Network Extensions and I've looked at their textures etc so I want to make a start at creating textures for roads. for that i need suggestions! 
        Use https://streetmix.net/new to visualise your road. I won't even consider ones that are just some random description For roads you want to zone on: use either 16m wide roads or 32m wide roads as those are the two widths that work with zoning. For highways you can use any width lanes for cars, trams, buses etc should be 3m in width. parking should be 2m wide sidewalks should be at least 2m wide (maybe 1.5m at the smallest) and this is for either side of the road, so at least 4m of sidewalk altogether! try and keep in mind that it's not about creating new types of prefabs like MOM, it's for reskinning like we do with Network Skins! Here's some examples of Vanilla Roads visualised in StreetMix
        a 16m Wide Basic Road:

        And a 32m Wide Medium Road

        You can click on the above links to be taken to a template in streetmix.
        Give me inspiration!

        I re-worked the Traffic Control Center and added 6 more 2x2 Park Menu lots that can be used in the the NAM avenue roundabout.  There are 3 more 'Control Tower' themed lots, and 3 different park lots, one is an amusement type using the Maxis Tilt-a-Whirl ride, one a forested rest-place with a gazebo, and the other a decorative grassy park.  All the lots use Maxis props and lighting, and have unique Park Menu icons.
        All lots have the same stats:
        Park Effect: 10 over 10, Landmark Effect: 20 over 10.
        Power Consumed: 20 MWh, Water: 10 gph.
        Monthly Cost: 50§
        Minimal water and air pollution.
        The landmark effect is a bit higher as they are feature parks, the 'Control Tower' lots having an imaginary civic function in controlling city traffic.  The roundabouts are part of the Network Addon Mod (NAM) which is specialized for transit and traffic networks, but the lots are stand-alone and can be used separately as park lots.  If using the NAM bulldoze the default lot in the center of the avenue roundabout and plop one of the 2x2 lots.  Any 2x2 lot can be used.
        The dependency file is located on SimCity 4 Devotion (SC4D) on the following linked page:
        Maxis Lot Editor (LE) Tool and Addons
        The Maxis Files for SimCity 4 are also now hosted here on Simtropolis on the page linked below: 
        Alternatively, the file below may be used instead of bldgprop_vol1.dat.  It is a better option as it combines access to all the Maxis buildings as props and adds a better hover query showing the lot name. 
        The above dependencies must be installed in your game application Plugin folder.  
        To Install this package:
        Place the 'Roundabout Variety Pack Lots' folder in the zipfile to the 'SimCity 4\Pulgins' folder in user 'Documents'.
