Congrats to all the Trixie winners and nominees! And thanks to those who nominated me for Modding Discovery, I really couldn't have done it without the support of the community. Had it not been for the previous discussions about DLL modding (especially including Buggi's source code post), my collaborations with other modders, and the encouragement to reach out to EA developers, I would not have picked up these projects or even tried to learn the skills necessary to pull them off. Despite the bumps in my early years here, ST has made me a better and more mature developer, so thanks to all of you!

And thanks to the site staff for working tirelessly to bring the Trixies back, it's great to have this celebration of the community back again! :party:

Been a while since I have dropped by. Wanted to thank those behind the scenes that put so much effort and work into the Trixies! Tip my hat to the voters as well. Thank you for the parks nod...it's an honor to interact with this marvelous community and the memories made along the way are priceless.

I've been away from Simtropolis and the game for more than a year. Today I logged in to download the new NAM and perhaps work on a new project, and... Wow! I see Leningrad awarded as City Journal of 2015. That's just amazing! Thank you everyone, and thanks as well for remembering me in the "Miss you" trixie. I will be back sooner than later :-)

Congratulations to all the winners!

      Lot Editor and Plug-in Manager Forum Archive 2016
      This thread contains all of the stray topics created in 2016 in the Lot Editor and Plug-in Manager forum. This thread serves to condense those topics into one topic before merging into the new SC4 BAT & Lot Workshop forum.
      However, all of the posts from the original threads are merged chronologically, which means that if two threads were posted in during the same time span, their posts will be mixed together, making it harder to read. To help with this, the title of original thread has been edited into the original first post of each thread.

      Lot editor problem
      Hi,
      I created my first simple building according to the BAT essentials tutorials and tried to put it on a lot with the Lot Editor.
      It's a 1x2 tile building. But I cannot place it correctly on the lot (no matter if it's a 2x3 or 3x3 lot:

      When I try to place it at the road in the right window I can move it to the road but in the left window which shows the result it's in the backwards area. And this is indeed the final position after saving and testing it in the game.
      When I turn the building around it's in the middle of the street when I move it to the forward part of the lot:

      An additional problem is that the Lot Editor creates a lot with nonsensical values for the Zone Types: 0x04, 0x05 and 0x06:

      Of course I can change that and then I can plop the building in the game but this values I think should not appear in the first place.

      How can i make a ploppable construct like a growable?
      Hello,
      Can anyone help me with the question above?
      If u didn't understand, its like this,
      when u find your plugin inside the landmark folder, u select it and when u place it in your city, it just appears wid some dust coming out.
      I want to know, when u plop the plugin from the LM menu, instead just appearing, i want it to start constructing wid some crane on it..
      I had seen this in the "Eclipse tower BAT" which is found on the STEX

      Trying to get here, this topic, I got 2 or 3 script error messages, like this:
      (Tried to up load a pic of it, and got a " There was a problem processing the uploaded file. Please contact us for assistance.)".
      Then I wonder if the majority of medals aren't showing:
      Same error as above.
      Anyway, are they related? My comp gets sluggish, and eventually gets hung up. No CTD.

      General Feedback Thread - 

      To help pass the time until the Awards Ceremony, here's a place to share your experiences of the new Trixies format. 
      What went well, and how can they be improved for next year? 

      As you're likely aware, this Trixies introduced various changes. Not only being the first time multiple years (2015 & 2016) were combined, but notably nominations were accepted in a special forum, allowing you to post and edit them in private. Based on your ideas, the Default Awards List was also created, and intended to provide a suitable baseline to cover the wide range of site contributions.
      In summary, here's a few possible possible topics of discussion:
       
      Award Categories
        Total available default awards: 101 Custom Content: 34 City Journals: 40 Community: 27
        Too little?  Just right?  Too many? Spread between categories. Coverage of types/themes? Any confusion or conflicting awards? Did the descriptions help or hinder?

        Nomination Process
        How did you find it compared to years gone by? Were the instructions clear and easy to follow? Was it helpful to edit and view your nominations? Any issues along the way?
        Duration of nomination period: 23 days (including the 2 day extension). Too short?  Just right?  Too long?

        Trixies Build-up
        Interviews To what extent were they helpful / enlightening? Types of questions asked? Format / presentation. More for next year?
        Content lists (2015 / 2016) Did they help with your decision making? Were they a useful reference? Should all content have been included in the lists? Grouping per author or per category?
        Community discussion How could this work better in future?
        Anything else which could be done in build-up?

        Trixies Promotion
        Too sparse?  Just right?  Too excessive? When did you first become aware of the Trixies this time? How useful was the info banner at the top?  Should anything else have been included? Were the countdown timers helpful? Visibility of the Trixies forum. Should any other banners have been added? Homepage features -- were they useful or too repetitive?

        Anything else?
        Post away!  
      We're always looking to improve the Trixies, and this was really a learning experience for everyone. Hopefully it worked well as a comeback after being absent for such a long time. But like anything, there's always room for improvement going forward.
      So if you've any comments or suggestions (even not on the above list), big or small, please post below and we'll take them into consideration. Feel free to post multiple times in this thread to your heart's content.
      And of course, you don't have to answer all the above questions -- they're just pointers.
      Thanks!
