ImVhOzzi: Thank you for your comment!

Benedict: Thanks for commenting, these two are BATs I really like.

Alejandro24: ¡Gracias por comentar! Ánimo con el cálculo ahora, las EDOs serán más amenas... Keep hanging on your Calculus lessons, ODEs will be more entertaining...

the00guvna: Thank you for commenting! Well, the EL-rail tracks are placed 15 meters above ground if everything is NAM-standard; then the station platform would be placed at the same height of the 2nd or 3rd floors of the nearby buildings; not the 1st... My fault!

OrdinarySim: ¡Gracias por comentar, Ander! Poverty and injustice can have its bright side, but only in SC4, where only Sims are hurt... :read:

Exla357: Thank you for your comment! Yeah, this is an aspect I have to solve... The inconvenience of this all-plopped city (let's face it) is that it doesn't generate much workers because of that annoying bug that plopped residentials have; and thus, there are no commuters who ride the trains. And AFAIK, there are no subway automata generators out there...

Animaniacs: Thank you for commenting!

spursrule14: Thanks for your comment, I've just remembered Men In Black; in the movie it is stated that a high percentage (can't remember the exact figures) of aliens living in the Earth live in the New York City area...

Roberto Robato: Thank you for your comment! You're not the only STEX addict, but at least you don't have to live with the "pain" of having only 0.5 Gb of free space in your hard drive...

jj88: Thanks for commenting!



Most of Rankine was built before the sixties, but it suffered a great expansion during the sixties, when more modern factories moved there and other structures where built there. They gave a brief period of growth which stopped few years later.


Open-air sewage was one of the worst ideas ever implemented in Rankine; it only had one good thing: it was inexpensive; and this came first when the sewage planning was made.


Some new factories moved into Rankine, and they encouraged the demographic growth here. When they went bankrupt, however, their just arrived workers couldn't move to another district and stayed.


During this era the whole NYC area saw a nearly incontrolled growth, somebody even thought in building an office highrise here. It was a laudable idea, but it just didn't work.


And let me show you something off-T&R, I've put a lot of photoedition effort on this pic and I think I had to show it...

So somehow I managed to end up not commenting on 3 - 4 updates before this one :???:

In other words consider this a generic comment for all of them:

@[b]Roberto Robato[/b]: You're going to need to download two files, the lot and the model. You can find the lot here [url="http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1404"][link][/url] and the model here [url="http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1403"][link][/url]. Beware dependancies!

It's not an exact recreation of Las Vegas' MGM Grand casino but it looks like it a lot...

As usual, personal replies coming with the next update, thank you all!

Hey nice update! Thats a good alternative to brown! I really love this update, its gloomy as always but with a happy ending! Keep 'em comin'!

As for the train issue, I know [b]Swamper77[/b] was working on some automa generators over at SC4 Devotion, I do believe he has released some train and freight truck generators, but apparently he dropped off the grid a few years ago.....I would check his developement thread, there was talk of Light Rail Generators, among other things...

Ooo, I needed to get caught up on this CJ! Still awesome, as far as I can tell. :D

Question... On the last update, what font did you use for the "197th Street Station" picture?

Nice work! I love your attention to detail here! And what's that last pic? That certainly doesn't belong in Rankine, NY. ;)

Nice update. The ambient are great. Did you have listened the song [i]Second Class Citizen[/i] by the industrial band Unit:187? Well, the update remembers me that song.

Excelente post. El ambiente es genial. ¿Has escuchado alguna vez una canción títulada [i]Second Class Citizen[/i] de la banda de música industrial Unit:187? Este post me recuerda a esa canción.
