  1. TL-VillaV ChateauBeynac (7x6) IR

    Version 1.0.0


    Tariel-Villavicencio Chateau-Beynac Grand Cru 7x6 Grow I like good wine (that’s “Grand Cru” meaning in French). So here’s a vineyard, relotted from Villavicencio’s creation. The lot is IR stage 2 (agro-industry) and Grow only [cheat lotplop to the rescue !]. It can be extended with more vineywards on two sides at your leisure. You can check Villavicencio’s content on the STEX. A list of deps is in the folder (updated from the original !) Many thanks to my technical gurus, Rsc204, Kosc and Dreadnought. And especially Rivit, who lighted my SC4world and is always generously ready to help. And the guys and gals on the forums (Twalsh, Matias93, Fantozzi, Catty-cb, Corinamarie…). We need help when we begin peeking under the hood of SC4. That the community is always there for us noobies is a constant and pleasant reassurance. General warnings : General warnings : (1) This is for SC4 Rush Hour. (2) I play with NAM36, RRW-EU selection (it shouldn’t interfere here, but you never know !) (3) I also play with Twrecks Maxis HD Tree Replacement (if you don’t use it, your trees might look a bit different ; perhaps you should use it,,,) (4) I play Nights. Hence the included RVT zNightLighting. Depending on your using or not a Light Replacement Mod, the lighting will be slightly different, but There Will Be Light. If you don’t want it, you can either tweak my lights in the Lot Editor or get rid of them entirely. (5) I like trees. I make intensive use of trees. Especially Girafe tree collection on the LEX ; so here’s a link, once for all ; just follow it into the woods.
  2. This is the most glorious farming mod I've ever come across, credits to all who helped make it work. I play it with CAM 2.1.0 And it does work. However I was thoroughly reading the Colossus farming manual .pdf regarding the installation procedure and there's one line of information I tumble over. There's the Sunflower dependency by HunD88 where according to the writer of the manual I have to edit the lot file if I want to use the sunflowers with CAM otherwise it supposedly overwrites CAM data. Not sure what the writer of that manual meant with this regarding consequences if undone but it sounds pretty bad if I don't. The colossus farming manual says this about the sunflower dependency > I use both, and I want to. Further down the manual is the list containing many ID's, including the one for Sunflowers. I need to change the ID to 0xA5F3E522 but I don't know where. I opened the Sunflower farm fields .lot file with Ilives reader and I'm clueless about what number to change to 0xA5F3E522.
  3. Hardcore Industry

    Replies: kschmidt: Thanks for your comment! feyss: That's the idea! Akallan: Thank you! Simmer2: Nice picture and good use of them MMPs. Looking forward to this new variety of MMP! Sciurus: Cheers! Cacciatoria: Yes they are! Entry 17 - Hardcore Industry So it's been a month -- as I told you due to all that teaching -- but I am knuckling down and finishing off three areas in Pololomia. Once these three areas are done then Pololomia is complete. Now during this month-long period Simmer2 has produced several new lots which are all industry/railway/utility-related. And I always like new industrial bats and lots to use! 1. One of the areas I finished off. 2. 3. New housing/filler combinations for the outer suburbs. 4. Now that I have several different tree filler types it is really easy to mix and match. 5. The massive automobile factory has been around for a while. But the area around it was not finished off- until now. 6. 50 shades of concrete... 7. And now for the new additions to the industrial area. 8. Simmer2's new industrial lots mix in really well with his older creations and other creators content: T Wrecks, Jestarr, etc. 9. And the new garbage lots are dirty, grimy and rusty as hell. Perfect for my type of industry. 10. And beyond this industrial area are a few more fields I added. 11. Another low-wealth residential combo. 12. Diagonals... Diagonals everywhere. 13. And for a SimCity 4 first I present to you the first ever cannabis field! Organically made with MMPs. 14. More of those MMP tracks... Now with rural power lines. 15. 16. Going full-on MMP. 17. Next week Pololomia should be finished, so see you then!
  4. I'm curious about why my SimGoober growable I-Ag farms never end up getting crops on them, no matter how many years they're around. They only ever have tilled, empty fields, despite having all the dependencies installed. (Besides, if I didn't have all the dependencies installed, I'd be getting a bunch of brown boxes in each field when it tried to grow crops, right? Right?) Is there a subforum for BTE issues or for Ag issues? (I guess the more simple question is... there's not a well known issue of SimGoober and/or BTE ag files not playing well with the SPAM, right? I think I researched it before I installed them and couldn't find any mention of issues.)
  5. Colossus Farming

    Version 1.0.0


    Mod content: 134 growable CAM-patible farm lots, each one individually designed, ranging from tiny romantic (stage 1) to dystopian agricultural scifi (stage 10). 45 new or completely reworked field lots with crops like canola, cabbage, bamboo, potatoes, strawberries, artichokes, animated lifestock or elements like grow tunnels, greenhouses, vertical farms. 250 new props/bats. 70 new textures 6 ploppable functional lots 13 cosmetic puzzle pieces to add fences and farm tracks to the fields. Mod's purpose: Collecting some of the best farming stuff, adding own stuff where needed and creating something with an overall concept from it. This means building up complete themes like winery, lumber industries, lifestock farming, grain production, including different elements of the productions chains (grain -> brewery, life stock -> slaughtery) - so for each city of your region there can be different main focus of agricultural production. Mod's challenge: This mod can be very demanding on computer/game performance and there may be actions to take about this. Also setup requires some patience as you have to make certain decissions and you have to select and sort content different according to this decissions. It's recommended to wait for a rainy afternoon to install this mod. It's essential to read chapter 1,2 and 3 of the included documentation. Dependencies This mod requires at least 38 dependencies (depending on your choices more). This is no put and play - you need to follow installation instructions of the documentation). Do this step by step. For easier management the dependencies are broken down into five sections. For performance reasons it's recommended to datpack some of the sections containing smaller files into a single bigger one after you are done and everything works.

Many thanks to T Wrecks, OcramsRzr, rivit, matias93 and nos.17 for the creative and fruitfull ideas. Thanks to nos.17 and markussaage for reviewing the documentation. This mod is dedicated to the developers of the Colossus Addon Mod, RippleJet and IvisiChem. Feel free to post screenshots, discoveries, your personal favorites, critics and questions (not covered by the documentation) in the development thread. Happy farming. EDIT - on 12.20.2017: The link on the dependency wmp_spam_freight_props2.dat was wrong and corrected today. For all player that used the dependency links before 12.20.2017 please replace wmp_spam_freight_props.dat (wrong) with wmp_spam-freight_props2 (right) or add it. Thanks to @buckbeach47 for reporting. -CB Edit (9/12/2018): Updated dependency link for the Wieśpak file due to SimCity Polska shutting down. Thanks to @AsimPika3172 for reporting in the comments section below.
  6. Entry 5: Educating the Farmers

    Replies: korver: Thanks, glad you like the industry, I'm a bit of a sucker for industrial areas and grunge and I love overviews! Entry 5: Educating the farmers! So, were back in Rokton today with another small update for you all (basically not a hell of a lot of note has actually happened but we'll pretend lots has!). Jumping straight in, were pleased (and relieved in Mayor Hennings case) to say that we finally got a school built and actually staffed in Henning Bay. Alongside this he also found some money in the budget to actually build some services so people wont have to rely on Rokton for their safety which is a bonus for them as can be seen in the picture below. Meanwhile, across the highway we've seen some rather large agricultural growth (large in relation to what we had before in any case), the towns having collectively decided that growing your own food is much cheaper than importing it (maybe not so reliable though given the skills of some of these farmers) Fields a bit small you say? Well here in Rokton getting sizeable plots of land is a bit hard as Mr Rokton is very fair with his land rental laws and reasons that everyone should have a chance to own some (ok he's tight). So we've come up with the novel idea of having co-operative farms which share machinery and supplies and each farmer works his own little field. Much friendlier than huge open fields (screw efficiency, who needs that? Also the friendly might be a bit of a stretch, everyone seems to have planted huge tree rows around their fields. At least it keeps in the noise in). Its not all corn and wheat though in Rokton, As we hit 5000 population, it's getting increasingly likely that you might have a dump sited next to your house as rubbish spirals out of control a bit. Luckily though, someone apparently has a brilliant idea (oh god........) so we'll have to see how that pans out next time as I leave you with this short entry and the obligatory overview. Till next time!

  9. Hi Guys, I have set myself a challenge to recreate the most realistic looking British feeling city. I have started with a small town and my first challenge was to create some realistic farms and fields. I would appreciate your feedback on how this went.. Next I will move onto a small British town with some traditional British looking street layouts, moving onto a large City with the likes of typical British themes Football stadium and surrounding Terrace houses. I look forward to your feedback and any other future ideas you would like to see.. Thanks. PUGG3RS Gaming
  10. Entry 10: Axe and Plow

    Replies: eufl: Thanks, really glad you like it and steal away, I'm glad to inspire you! Don't worry about the village and the water, I'm sure its fine . Entry 10: An axe and a Plow So were back in Antario today where we can happily say that the industry is beginning to get back on its feet after the oil crash, mainly thanks to diversification in the industries that exist in Antario. Started in Froska, plots of land have been bought from the local government with the intention of agricultural use where they are currently growing the usual crops that you'll find in Norway aided by being in the south of the country with the likes of berries, potatoes and some crops backed up by some livestock, mainly pigs. Below you can see some of the farms surrounding Froska. 1. 2. The boost in farmland has also resulted in another small community, Vanberg popping up at the tip of the area where the lake that Froska sits on joins its rivers. You can also see the rail halt here, where occasionally freight trains with collect agricultural goods bound for the city and the rest of Nowray. In the background you can also see the pumping stations that have been implemented to help with the water supply for the city. Not exactly the nicest of sites but the freshwater lake that feed them cuts down on the cost of water purification over using salt water. 3. Alongside these farms we also have the usual Norwegian practise of supplementing the agriculture with other industries, in this case forestry to take advantage of the large swathes of forest that cover the area. 4. This boost to the economy around Froska foes have its slight issues though with the small intersection that could easily cope with the population of the small village now swamped by farm traffic and lorries. Don't worry though plans are currently being looked into to solve this issue, (OOC: Whilst this may look dangerous and weird I'm basing the junction on a number of similar junctions that can be found near where I live in the UK. They're easily the scariest junctions ever especially when things get busy and you have to cross two lanes of national speed limit traffic, but they do work). 5. Meanwhile the oil fields have completely ground to a halt, and a lot of the buildings have fallen to ruin with nature and planting, taking the old oil fields back. As such the city council has decided to scrap the rest of the oil fields completely and start ti reinstate new industry in its place. Hopefully this will become a reality in the future. 6. 7. Meanwhile, in the centre of town the decline in population growth has meant that a few of the commercial enterprises in town have not been able to compete and a number of business like this one below are being replaced with offices. 8. Meanwhile the out of town shopping centre project has finally gone ahead (which has probably contributed to the decline of in town shopping as well). Although not yet finished, this area has already become a centre for shopping in the city and has promoted some further high rise development around it. 9. Which brings us to the end of this entry and the obligatory overview that we always finish with. Currently the populatiom stands at 40,998 but is set to rise substantially in the near future if the cities expansion plans go ahead. 10. Finally as usual we have the list of proposed plans for the future of the city. It hasn't changed much though. -Find new avenues for the old oil fields. -Improve the lacking public transport network? -Take a look at streamlining the harbour area? -Look into new avenues of industry, maybe forestry? -Financial district substantial expansion? -Get the city beautification projects finished instead of half done? -Agricultural expansions -Housing expansions (OOC: Again guys I really do apologise for the amount of time that's between the entries. I do really wish I had more time to spend on the game and the CJ but I have my family, work and other hobbies that come first. Still I hope that you lot are still enjoying the entries despite how sparse they are and I do have lots of plans for the city in the future, lets just hope I can get some more time to make the entries more frequent. Cheers James)

  13. Stardew Valley

    You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? Website Steam Store Page Chucklefish Games ConcernedApe, the sole developer of every aspect of this game, created Stardew Valley out of a desire for a game similar to games such as Harvest Moon but on PC. It's being published by Chucklefish games, the developer of Starbound and Wayward Tide, and publishers of a few games, including Risk of Rain. The singleplayer release of the game will be on February 26 and 4 player online co-op will be released down the line at some point as a free update. I'm personally super excited for this game, though I have never played any of the games it's similar to, or inspired by. I may have some bias because I'm very fond of Chucklefish and what they do, have followed them closely, and even have a friendship with one of their employees. But I'm sure this will be a fantastic game that I will spend many hours in. The main story arc is said to take somewhere around 50 hours to complete, and there will be countless other things to do at any given time such as build friendships and relationships with the local community, grow crops and trees across all four seasons, tend to animals, catch various fish, cook delicious meals, gather ores and fight off slimes in the mines. The soundtrack for the game containing over 70 different songs is available now and can be bought from this developer update for $4.99.
  14. Mustang, Masavera

    This is a short introduction to my region of Masevera (mass-ev-air-ah). It is a very rural region inspired by the Midwest of the United States. I chose to develop my region on a relatively flat plain with very little variations in elevation as I'm not really a fan of building cities on unstable or non-flat ground as I don't particularly think it's the most aesthetically pleasing in terms of realism (which is something I strive for) This is the small town of Mustang; inspired by Mustang, Oklahoma. It's a fairly typical (boring) town ^ Downtown Mustang ^ Just a small shopping area with a Sam's Club and a K-Mart ^ Interstate exit that gives direct access to Mustang ^ Thank you for viewing my (very) short introduction entry. More updates are to come in the near future.
  15. Farms in the town of Piedmont

    My first gallery image. Just a farming district with some custom fields. Wishing for more textures in the asset editor...
  16. Farming, it's for dinner

    More farms and roads I am building. Just another update.
  17. The Northern Territory Expansion: As Adamskii Land experienced a booming economy from the recent expansion to agriculture, the need for raw materials increased. This demand for materials, along with the eagerness of the railroads to expand their grasp, led to the massive expansion into northern territory. Some typical scenes found in the Northern Territory. The land is known for meandering rivers and large forests. Lumber and hunting have become the largest industries with farming trying to find its place in the mountainous region. Scottie's Valley is currently the furthest out established town, a frontier type of place. Beyond this little town the river valley narrows and the mountains grow in height. A wild man's paradise full of lakes, animals, canyons and peace. Plattsburg City is the largest city within the Northern Territory. Plattsburg is known for colder temperatures, large trees and recreational actives. Many citizens spend time kayaking the rivers, boating on the bay to finding hidden coves or just riding bicycles around the friendly city. A train ride from Plattsburg to the mountains near Scottie's Valley is always recommended to tourists.
  18. Agriculture is Coming.

    You must admit these look like farms. I made this using All RCIHC Plop and Project Akar. I just wanted to show people how to make Urban Suburban Farms. Try to experiment with the aesthetics of the game to create things like this! I want to see someone else make something better than this. (I know it's possible.) This was a bit of a joke, but be sure to check out for more agriculture goodness!
  19. China: Toxic Farm Lands

    Many Chinese being poisoned by farm produce. The Great Leap Forward seems to have poisoned the ground. Some fifth of the farm land is toxic. Interesting for our export markets. Rice exports should be up.
  20. THE EARLY FARMING YEARS: ADDITIONAL SCENES As the region moved forward through the 1950's the agriculture movement made progress across all reaches of Adamskii Land. The local economies boomed and towns began to appear everywhere. Railroad was still the most convenient means of transportation/shipping for farming and ranching. Valleys with railways were the first to see towns which became shipping hubs for smaller sub-regions. Below are some typical scenes from the 1950's into the 1960's, known as "the early farming years" But finding plenty of water next to land and rail was not always easy. With the success of the nation's first dam the government began to look for more opportunities with water storage. The Zotes Valley is a long fertile valley with a river already in place. In the late summer the river becomes a stream and often fall harvest was early due to short water supply. The Pine Creek Dam took care of this problem controlling the release of Pine Creek into Zotes Valley. The railroad companies pushed their tracks further and further with goals of reaching the distant mountains. As towns grew lumber was in large demand which created a second booming industry. The first to reach the mountains with rails were the first to benefit. Timberline Valley was a small mountain valley within close reach of rail and thus became a major lumber source. The valley's weather was ideal for tree growth and lead to tree farming. The typical town during this time period had railway close to town to allow for passenger trains and shipping of goods. Some valley towns developed into small urban centers with shopping, churches, parks, and quiet neighborhoods. Below is an "typical" early farming year town. As the region enters the 1960's the shipment of goods becomes troublesome with roads and rails reaching high capacity levels. Some government engineers began to whisper about some crazy new idea of "freeways". The next city journal will be the region as in enters the 1970's.
  21. Project SUGCAM (SUGC:AM) "Where's the agriculture? Where's the military? Why no bigger maps?" Current Events | has been released! School is still busy, the holiday season is approaching, so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Summary | SimCity didn't come with agriculture out-of-box, for Quality Assurance scrapped it form the game, but that shouldn't stop us from making our own version! SUGC:AM, the future SUGC Agriculture Mod, will be the first official collaboration project for the team, and it will add some more fuel to the flame of SimCity. The mod will introduce a new element of gameplay into SimCity, and we'll start out small and grow into a massive part of everyone's SimCityData folders, given the one year we'll take to make it! All of the future content for the SimCity User-Generated Content: Agriculture Mod will come out in the phases described below: Work Phases | Phase I - Essential Functionality - 2 months, +/- 1 months Project Akar Agriculture Culture!

  22. FrankU Dutch Farms Maxis Override



    I relotted the Maxis farms. Now we have a kind of starter set for the (still upcoming) Dutch Farms Set that mrbisonm and I are working on. The lots fit into the CAMified world and they fit into the SPAMified world, as long as you load the lots after the CAM or SPAM mod files. We have a set of dependecies that may knock you out. Well, it's up to you if you use this set or not. Here I go: BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01 BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol01 BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol 01 BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01 BSC_TexturePack_Cycledogg_V 01b BSC Essentials RFR Maize Set Simgoober Farm Fields Revised PEG Spam Super Resource And of course FrankU Dutch Farm Fields V2.0 Have fun!

  23. Heyho, well because I was bored I made some shots for another entry of my "how to build stuff I do all the time". At first I laid out the zones. Because it's just a small Maxis-city tile, you can do this at once, and press "Start" if you already zoned the whole area. You see, for a farming town (with SPAM, because the vanilla-farms wouldn't create enough jobs for a whole town), you primarly need residetials and, yeah, farms. A bit of commercial at the crossing of the highways creates additional jobs for the objective people (R§ and R§§, of course the stupid engine want to build many mansions in the town, which are going to dilapidate because there are no jobs for them. That shouldn't happen in your city). Then, you need energy and water. I'm sorry for the ugly yellow line on the edges, the development would've start otherwise. After that, some public establishments. Bus stops, parks, a clinic, a small schoolhouse and a fire station in this case. The last step: Profit! A closer view of the town. That's it, have a nice weekend guys! Replies Schriefer: Thank you, I'm glad you like it:) slickbg56: Thanks! AdoxxBE: Thank you, but it's not as good as your cities^^ Ln X: Thanks, it's part of the the parking lots and walls are included in the addon packs of it, like the infamousjbe: Nah, it's not included in this mod^^ As I said, the parking lots are icluded in the Industrial revolution mod^^ 47ply: Thank you, man:D TekindusT: Who wouldn't want to live there? Well I don't actually^^ feeroz123: Thank you for this great rating! C4RACORTADA: Well, but not as cozy as Simsinatti:P Pwel28: Thank you! garyF: I love the draggable curves of the NAM, they made my life so much easier^^ (I never had so much comments before Thank you, homies!^^)
  24. FrankU Dutch Farm Lots Stage 0



    Here it is: the first set of Dutch Farm Lots. The set contains 35 farm lots. The lots contain only field props, so when they grow you will see only crops, just like in real life, where not every plot of farmland has a house, a barn or a shed. In order to be able to recognize the simple state of these "farms" I call them Stage 0, but in fact they are simple Stage 1 farm lots. Stages 1 up to 7 will come later. The farms are CAMpatible and I think they are SPAMpatible. Don't get shocked by the list of dependencies. If you do: just leave this set on the STEX. Dependencies Of course you need my Dutch Farm Fields set V2.0 And furthermore: Simgoober Farm Fields Revised PEG_Spam_Super_Resource BSC_TexturePack_Cycledogg_V 01b BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol 01 BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01 BSC MEGA Props - MJB Vol01 BSC MEGA Props - swi21 Vol01 RFR Maize set 1.1 BSC Essentials Have fun!

  25. Small Town #2

    Because I was really motivated today (Grade A in an essay ), there's already another entry. Indeed, it is a small town too, but.....yeah who cares? It just makes fun to create these towns, you know? But the next time it's another theme. Promise (probably night shots or mmp again). So it's snowing here in the Ore Mountains already and it's very beautiful I guess, so maybe I will upload some real life photos of my hometown someday. Have a nice evening guys! Replies Huston: That's a huge compliment, but it's just not true. A Journey through Pangia is just awesome and I will never reach this level of Mastering SC4. schokoladeneis 1: Dankeschön! dlsni: Thanks, it's nice to hear such a positive assessment.
