  1. Museum [Offline Only]

    Loosely based on the appearance of the Old Patent Office Building in Washington DC, the Museum is a brand-new building with (for the first time) some brand-new behaviors. Basically, it's a landmark-meets-library - apart from attracting tourists that shovel out cash in the gift shop, it also lures in your local populace who might learn something from the experience. Given enough tourists, your sims' education will literally pay for itself.
     
    It can be found under the education menu.
     
    Special thanks to MaxisGuillaume for the idea and some guidance.

  2. Central Train Station [Offline Only]

    Finally I'm able to release a new version of my first building mod - an offline version of the Central Train Station. Besides being able to function besides the default station, this one has a few perks;
     
    New better looking lot more suited to the station size Buildable on road as opposed to on rail Contains built-in tracks Has a much higher capacity than the default station (at a slightly higher cost)

  3. Elevated Railway (Offline Only - replaces maglev)

    I've been working on this one for weeks, but it's finally here; the elevated railway based on MaxisGuillaume's 'Maglev as Subway' mod (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/29428-maglev-as-subway/). This mod uses the maglev network to create a Chicago/New York style "EL-Train" with tracks and stations that can be placed above roads.
     
    Can I still use the maglev?
    Yes, this mod exists as a completely new network - however, due to how the game is implemented, the EL-train vehicles replace the default maglev ones. So, you can still build the vanilla maglev tracks and stations, but the vehicles that will travel on them are EL-Trains.
     
    Can I use this in combination with MaxisGuillaume's Subway?
    Yes - while this mod is inspired by his, it exists as a completely separate entity, although just like with the maglev, the new EL-Train vehicles will travel on the paths - of course, in case of the subway this might actually be preferable if you want a more realistic subway. For the time being you can't connect the two networks together yet, but I'm planning on making this possible.
     
    (Many thanks to MaxisGuillaume for helping me to get this to work)

  4. Dutch Emergency Vehicles

    Since I did the Atego fire engine, I've been working on a complete set of Dutch emergency vehicles that replace the default ones with an equivalent vehicle that would be used in The Netherlands. In order of the images, it contains:

    Fire Engine: Mercedes Atego Fire Engine

    Ladder Fire Engine: Atego Ladder Fire Engine

    Hazmat: DAF "Schuimblusvoertuig" (meaning "foam extinguish vehicle") - vehicle that uses foam to put out fires with flammable materials.

    Fire Marshal: Mercedes Sprinter van.

    Ambulance: Mercedes Sprinter Van

    Wellness Van: Volkswagen Touran (I could not find something equivalent to a 'wellness van' in the Netherlands, so I chose to re-imagine it along the lines of a doctor making a housecall)

    Small police station squad car: Opel Vectra

    Precinct squad car: Volkswagen Touran

    Crime prevention van: Mercedes Sprinter

    Detective van: Volkswagen van from the "energy company" used for undercover sting operations.

    Also, IdeoRex has done an excellent video showcasing the mod which can be found here:

  6. Bombardier Cityrunner Tram

    Once again this is a very exciting release, since it's the first that includes a scripts component. Thanks to Felgard's discovery that script mods can be used in a separate package after all (note, most values still lead to rollbacks, but this one doesn't since it's only visual), we can now have a much more modern tram.

    Another new feature showcased in this mod is that it comes in four different colors (similar to how most 'normal' cars in the game have varying colors).

    NOTE: This download contains a scripts component. All .package files ending with 'Scripts' should be copied into the ...\Origin\SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages\ folder instead of the SimCityData folder. Furthermore, be advised that this mod might not work with new updates from Maxis.

    EDIT: I've been running into some odd issues with the script files (nothing potentially harmful to the game though) - they load or don't load depending on the city I'm viewing. I'll be looking into this.

  7. TGV Train

    The French "Train à Grande Vitesse" is probably the most famous high-speed train in the world, and one of my favourites.

    I had to make a few alterations for technical reasons, such as the wagons being shorter than they should be and the wagons having two bogies instead of having only one between two cars. Also, the real TGV would be much longer, but limitations aside, I like how it turned out.

    This mod contains three versions to choose between (you can only have one active at a time)

    * Oppie_Train_TGV_Atlantique.package - TGV Atlantique; Silver with blue stripe in the middle
    * Oppie_Train_TGV_Sud_Est.package - TGV Sud-Est (the original); Orange with black stripe in the middle
    * Oppie_Train_TGV_Thalys.package - Thalys; Red and gray

  8. VDL "Citea" Bus

    This mod replaces the standard municipal bus with something more modern. The model is a VDL "Citea" (unsurprisingly they are used a lot in the Netherlands ).

    The nifty part of this one is that I've included 7 different textures so that you can choose the color of the buses that will drive around in your city. (note; only one of these can be active at a time)

    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Blue.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Green.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Orange.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Purple.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Red.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_White.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Yellow.package

    EDIT: Added a separate file with 3 dutch liveries:

    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Arriva.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Connexxion.package
    Oppie_Bus_Citea_Veolia.package

  9. Mercedes Atego Fire Engine

    Replaces the fire engine from the small fire department with something you're more likely to see in Europe. Contains three versions:

    Oppie_Fireengine_Generic.package - Generic paint job (white stripe, no text)
    Oppie_Fireengine_NL.package - Dutch striping
    Oppie_Fireengine_UK.package - UK colors

    The fire engines from the large fire station are not changed with this mod, although I might change this later.

  10. VIRM "RegioRunner" Custom Train

    I'm extremely excited about this one - basically, this is the kind of thing I was hoping to do when I started breaking apart the package files during the first beta; this is officially the first fan-made 3d model that's made its way into the game. It cost me many hours to make, but the end result is more than worth it for me.

    This train is the so-called VIRM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_VIRM ), one of the more well-known trains of the Dutch railways. Apart from a few minor details, the in-game one is an exact replica.

    The only very minor issue with this model is that the LODs (which are what the game displays at higher distances) have still slightly more polygons than maybe they should, but unless you have a very low-end machine, this should not be noticeable.

    UPDATE (16-5-2013)

    File has been modified to change the scale of the train (originally I used the real-world dimensions, but those look too small in-game; now I always multiply the real-world dimensions by 1.3). Also contains better looking LODS and bump mapping.
     
    UPDATE (31-5-2013)
     
    Adjusted the height of the pantograph for the electrified railroad.
    Added interior maps for the train.

  11. Red Double Decker Bus (Texture Replacement)

    Finally, vehicle texture replacements are here! I'm hoping to upload the version of SimCityPak I used to make this around the weekend.

    For those of you who (like me) hate the British flag they pasted all over the double decker bus you get with the Digital Deluxe version, here's a mod that replaces it with a more authentic all-red Routemaster style version.

    Note that you need the British building set DLC (or the Digital Deluxe version) for this to appear in your cities.

  12. NS "1600" + "ICR" Train (Offline Only)

    This train is a replacement for the default one, but is different in a few ways - first of all, it is longer and has a higher capacity than the default one, and secondly is pulled by a single engine instead of existing in a 'multiple-unit' configuration.
     
    The engine is based on the NS Class 1600
    The carriage is based on the ICR carriage

  13. Public Transport Stops (Offline mode standalone version)

    This mod is an offline-only version of my Public Transport Stops which allows them to exist as standalone objects besides the official in-game transportation stops; so unlike all 'online' mods, it needs not to replace an existing item but adds three completely new ones:
    Tram Stop: A longer platform with two shelters, plenty of seating and lighting. Bus Stop: A glass bus shelter with a small bus stop marker School Bus Stop: A small wooden shelter

  15. Train Fix Mod

    If you're having problems with having one of my train mods show up after the Cities of Tomorrow expansion pack, placing this package into the SimCityData folder will fix that for you. Also, when you're not using a train skin mod, you get the old Maxis train back.

  16. The Unisphere

    The Unisphere in Flushing Meadows - Corona Park is probably one of the more underrated landmarks in New York City. Since it's essentially a huge fountain, it looks great in any city park area, and as it was built for the World's Fair, it also fits in quite well with the modern Cities of Tomorrow aesthetic.
     
    In-game, this landmark replaces St. Basil's Cathedral (for the sole reason that it was the only building that had an appropriately-sized base lot), complete with new icon, preview image and text.

  17. Burger King

    After some time trying to perfect the 3d studio max building tools (they're coming real soon, promise!) I'm releasing another building; this one is for those who don't like McDonalds (you know who you are ) and will add even more competition to the fast food business in your cities.
     
    Once again, this once replaces one of the original buildings.

  18. McDonald's

    This is another big one; it's created using the tools I'm working on to create buildings in 3d studio max (credits for that go to crimsondesigns) and importing them into SimCityPak and contains many features I didn't yet have the ability to introduce in the train station, such as a custom lot, custom decals and resource strings.
     
    Notes:
    This building replaces an existing one in-game. This building will grow in low density C$$ areas I'll hopefully be releasing the first version of these tools very soon (once I've done a couple more tests and have increased the user friendliness).

  19. Central Train Station

    I'm very proud to release the first true custom building model; a Central Train Station loosely based on a design I created for SimCity 4 back in the day. This is a proof-of-concept for the idea that we can eventually create custom models of similar quality to the ones we made for SimCity 4. Frankly this one still has a few rough edges, but consider that it's only the first - as I improve the process of creating buildings further they can only become more detailed and more impressive. With Maxis opening up the discussion for User Generated Content on their official forums (be sure to weigh in on the discussion); this is the kind of mods that I had in mind (besides NAM-like network mods).
     
    NOTE:
    This mod only replaces the building model of the original Train Station; this has a few consequences; The lot size is still the original size; the model will 'hang over' its lot at the sides. To make the train tracks look good, you should make sure that it is situated on a long stretch of unobstructed track. Only one train track is actually used - the second one can be drawn by the player underneath the other platforms (for fun you can also draw a tram track there!) The lot itself is quite empty The capacity is the same as the original train station As more modding options might become available, these shortcomings might be amended. I'm also still working on tools to improve how we edit the lots, decals and other elements.
     
    For those who want to create buildings themselves:
    I know a lot of you will be as excited about this mod as I am, and will be champing at the bit to create their own models for the game. I'm planning on taking the time to help people achieve this, although needless to say some 3D modeling knowledge is required. If you're interested, keep an eye on this thread; http://community.simtropolis.com/forum/94-SimCity-2013-modding-open-discussion/ in which I'll soon start posting details on how I achieved this and how you hopefully can do so too.
     
    Updated 4/10/2013; there was a bug where the new model would not show up on the closest zoom level. Downloading the file again will fix this.

  20. Bus Shelter

    This mod replaces the default bus stop (which sticks out like a sore thumb if you ask me) with a custom bus shelter. This mod is exciting in that it's the first custom building model released for SimCity 2013 and is the result of a few months of research and many attempts at coming up with a way to get all of the relevant building data into the game.
     
    NOTES:
    I've tried putting in transparent glass in the shelter, but this proved to be surprisingly difficult to do technically. The 'bounding box' of the model is slightly of I'm expecting to make improvements to my process as I make more models and at some point I hope that I can make it simple enough to release for everyone - for the time being creating any building model requires a very strict amount of preparations to make sure that SimCityPak imports the model correctly. This means that I can't yet make a simple tutorial on how to create buildings, but hopefully after some more research this will eventually be possible.

  21. Improved Euro Road Textures

    It's been a while since my last release, but I've been working on a few cool things including a complete rework of my Original Euro Road mod. This one is mostly based on the Dutch road and sidewalk styles, but they fit in in most European aesthetics.
     
    Notes:
    * The bicycle lanes are only for decoration
    * Includes the darker textures for all roads

  22. Streetcar Bridge

    In anticipation of Patch 7 which will allow the easy construction of overpasses I thought it'd be nice to upgrade the look of the streetcar bridge (which before looked identical to the railway bridge for some reason) to that of an elevated railway. While you sadly can't place any stations on the bridge sections, at least it looks a lot better and the transition between ground and elevated streetcar bridge tracks is completely seamless.

  23. Tree Lined Pedestrian Paths

    In the same vein as the Tree Lined Streets (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/28807-tree-lined-streets-low-and-medium-density/), this mod adds a row of trees (and lamp posts) along the University Pedestrian paths.
     
    A few notes;
    - I've attempted to make the trees more varied, but I can't make their appearance random.
    - The lamps actually work, but only when connected (and near) to a road that carries electricity
    - To make the paths buildable from the roads menu, use this mod: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/28633-university-pedestrian-paths-in-the-roads-menu/

  24. Tree Lined Streets (Low and Medium density)

    It's been a while since I actually released a mod, but today I'm very happy to bring you something many people have requested - low and medium density streets will now have trees growing in their grassy areas.
     
    Note: while they are shown in the screenshots, you do not need the european road textures for this mod to work.

  25. Mercedes Sprinter Shuttle Bus

    Completing the series of public transport replacements is the shuttle bus with a Mercedes Sprinter van (I had the model anyway from my series of Dutch Emergency Vehicles). It has the same four random colors as the buses and trams so that your transportation network will have a nice consistent look to it.
