    Short description: A while ago, a collection of Italian-style lots – the so-called Italian Collection, by simcity4ever88 – has been restored by the moderators of Simtropolis Exchange because the files had been stored on an off-site host which is not available anymore. After downloading this collection, I realized that it contains a huge collection (more than 1,000 lots!) of partially really beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, however, some of them are really poorly modded, up to the point that they may freeze SimCity 4 upon scrolling over them in the in-game menu, and, occasionally, the lotting isn’t much better. Therefore, I’ve improved both lotting and modding of some of these buildings. Real life doesn’t allow me to do this on a regular pace, but I’ve had a little time to work on some of the lots. This is a collection of 12 palaces and villas in varying sizes and styles. They are working as civic buildings in the health and education sector. Their values are similar to the values of their Maxis equivalents, only some have deviating values. The only special feature: All of these buildings have a small landmark effect. Available languages: The item descriptions are available in English and German; the item names are in Italian due to being named after famous Italian people. The readmes are in English and German. The game will pick the language on its own. Dependencies: ...unfortunately, quite a bunch, however, some of them are candidates frequently used by me and other creators. The Italian Collection: This plugin contains all building graphics. How to properly install the Italian Collection: It is not recommendable to just put all files coming with this download into your Plugins folder! Firstly, some of the lots do not have got a menu icon, and this may cause SC4 to freeze upon scrolling over these lots in the in-game menu. Second, you may obtain hundreds of lots in your game menu that you cannot (or don’t want to) make use of them; and some of them are growables that you can’t control. Please take yourself time to read these instructions. Various trees by Girafe: These plugins contain some mayor mode ploppable trees.

  2. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    @Duco Thanks very much. I couldn't find it. I'll keep my eyes open in case someone puts it online.
  3. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    Does anybody know where to find this building? I only have a picture from it where it is seen from the rear.
  4. Show Us What You're Working On

    Long time not active on this forum. RL keeps me busy. Well, it's time to jump back into action. This is a collection of relots of the Italian Collection I'm working on. These are supposed to be 12 buildings (8 palazzos and 4 villas) that are working as civic buildings (only health and education).
  5. @redfox85 That's strange, I've tried out minimizing the game and planting trees later with the TC, and this didn't happen to me. I also can't imagine why this could happen. I'll keep it in mind, but for now, I just recommend just not planting trees after minimizing the game.
  6. I don't know for sure, but you might have given them an item order with a value that is "too high or low". The item order property value work like this: The lower the item order value, the further at the top of the menu will your lot be located. Item order values can range from 0xFFFF8000 (in decimal numbers, this equals to -32768, which means, it is below zero) to 0x00007FFF. You should not make them higher or lower, because for some unknown reason they won't behave like expected. This may, for instance, really cause an item to be located at the top of the menu while actually having a high number. Maxis buildings usually have an item order of 0 or a bit higher or lower.

    @tarielyYou actually don't need to make prop families. Do you know about the prop variation technique? If you know your way along the Reader, I'd suggest to use this instead of prop families. You might get a bit more work, especially with pencil and paper, but it's somewhat more versatile than prop families. Here's a link that describes the prop variation technique and how to work with it. http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=5350.msg169424#msg169424
  8. I think that theoretically there is a solution to this problem: With the same mechanics that people use to create transit-enabled traffic stations, it is possible to create transit-enabled lots looking exactly like the networks they are being plopped on - but with the side effects you mentioned: One could either make sure that it takes the sims really long to get past this lot (this is done by raising the value at the Transit Switch Entry Cost property to a high value); furthermore, it's entirely possible to block traffic from passing it. A good while ago, I released a set off traffic blockers (link below); I'm thinking of improving the lotting, but they work (albeit they only block one type of traffic, not all traffic altogether).
  9. Show Us Your Small Towns

    Looks pretty good. Where did you get this monastery building from?
  10. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    These houses are the Berner Altstadthäuser (Old town houses of Bern), available on simcitydlaza.de. Download link at the very bottom of the page. http://www.simcityplaza.de/index.php/whi-gebaeude/wohnen/file/1275-sfbt-berner-altstadthaeuser-von-voltaic BTW, I'd really like to know where to get the T21 mod that adds trees, hedges, and flowers to avenues and the AVE-2 network, as shown on exactly this screenshot (I've therefore quoted the picture itself).

This is a collection of 31 chapels and churches in varying sizes and styles. Like many landmarks, they have landmark effect; they also have park effect; both are depending on their lot size. Since the in-game houses of worship do not charge building and monthly cost, these churches are free to plop – however, for the sake of realism, not free of monthly maintenance cost. Available languages: The files are available in English and German; the item names are available in Italian as well. The readmes are in English and German. The game will pick the language on its own. Dependencies: The Italian Collection: This plugin contains all church graphics.

  12. Show Us What You're Working On

    This is a project I've been recently working on (although RL keeps me busy): A few months ago the Italian collection by simcity4ever88 has been restored by the moderators. After downloading and checking it, it turned out that it contains a good amount of great lots, but some of them are in need of re-lotting and especially re-modding, since some of them have no icons and thus cause SC4 to freeze if the player encounters them in the in-game menu. I'm talking about literally hundreds of lots, and there are also some that I don't like, so I just will relot some of them. These are 2 pictures of a total of 29 churches, being part of the Italian collection. If there's enough interest, I'll share these relots. My goal was to make some decent lots while keeping the amount of dependencies low, give them a proper modding (along with proper descriptions and icons), and keep the amount of space they occupy (in-game) low to allow them to be combined with custom plaza lots. This is the link to the Italian collection:

    @redfox85 I don't know such a mod in particular, but you can do it yourself by modifying your slope mod, if you have one. Open the files that come with your slope mod with Reader, then search for the exemplar file with the ID 6534284a-084344e0-0781214f. This controls the behaviour of the Road network. Along with its behaviour on slopes, you can also edit it to be built faster (this should also affect the building speed of bridges). In particular, the property Construction Crew Time handles it. The value is in seconds (i.e. it takes this many seconds to build one tile of road network).
  14. That's weird, I tried it myself with exactly the setup you mentioned, and everything works fine. To make sure we both tried the same: I've installed the following plugins: CPT Meadowshire terrain mod (along with its dependencies), one optional additional file with low snow cap CETC and all dependencies Seasonal Flora patch Sorry, the only reasons for this that I can imagine are: You forgot to remove some other mods that conflict with the CETC. You must have at least some other plugins installed, the conifer trees shown on the screenshot are not part of vanilla SC4 (BTW, they also cannot be planted by the CETC at all). A reason for this, albeit very unlikely: There are actually 2 Plugins folders, one somewhere in "My Documents" and one in the game's installation folder. The second one may probably be rarely touched by most players. You might have put something in there and forgotten about it. You haven't installed the CETC properly. Please make sure to consult the Readme for which files exactly to install.
