I'm trying to do some more lot editing, but haven't had much luck. What I want to do in one case is take NoFunk's Milwaukee apartments and make them into either landmarks or commercial lots so I can plop the residential buildings without them abandoning. Well as you can see the region is really filling out. I'm actually getting to a point where I might add in some highways. That will be fun, haha. Check out the District of Wenzel Street Map to get an idea where we are.

Your entire region is a piece of art. The development looks incredibly realistic! I love your naming of the streets and your elevated rail network. It really adds to the realism. Great work!

gorgeous update! can't wait for more ;)

btw- I checked the apartments that you want to edit, and you are in luck:

An alternative to what you are doing is you find the .sc4model file which was included in the download. take it and place it in your Documents/simcity/plugins (no other folder, etc) then you can get SC4 Plugin Manager (it comes with the BAT download) and once open you will see all the apartment models. Just drag them to the left area onto whatever type of building you want (CO, LM, etc). This will create a Lot Editor File.

You then open LE, open the same type of Lot as the building you made (so if you made a commercial file, open a commercial lot with similar jobs, and information that you want.) Edit the lot however you want, then click on "buildings then "Replace building" Find the apartment file/s and place it. Then a save as and you're ready to go. ;)

feel free to PM me if you have a question.

Thanks heitomat.

a_muses - I'll get back to you on which farm mods I use. I can't always remember off the top of my head.

Yeah, I should start working on little towns out there...my plan is that those will either be completely overtaken by the big metropolis or at the very least they will become decent sized suburbs.
