  1. 75 - Snow Spirit

    It's my 75th Entry! I wanted to have a bigger Christmas entry but unfortunately my graphics card died. It's fixed now and all my SimCity data is safe, however I didn't have the time to take all the pictures I wanted or do all the photo editing I had planned. A big thanks to all those who visited, commented on, and rated my CJ in 2015. I had fewer entries this year so I'll continue this 'season' in 2016. A lot of the stuff I'm working on in SC4 is really big so it's taking longer to finish. Thanks for all your great advice and support. Another thanks to all all the Modders and BATers whose hard work, creativity, talent, and devotion keeps SC4 alive and makes it better than ever. And finally, thanks to all the Mods and Admins who keep the site up and running. Anyway, here are a few shots to put you in the holiday spirit. Merry Christmas. Enjoy! Comments, suggestions, and questions are always appreciated. Thanks for visiting. Happy Holidays! See you in the future... raynev1: Nice entry. It looks pretty cool. Thank you raynev. gviper: Spectacular! These images are simply living and active candy to the eyes! I desperately want to see some night shots of the first series. The precipitation in the shots lends me to feel the lighting is a bit too bright, but then again, perhaps it's an isolated shower moving through the area and sunbreaks are all around. Hey, that would beckon for a rainbow effect, course that might not be possible with Photoshop (I dunno) but if pulled off would be merely window dressing on an otherwise fabulous presentation! Yeah I guess you kind of have to imagine the sun is peering through the clouds or suspend your disbelief a bit. I used a different rain effect this time. I'll try something else next time and see if it works better. Thanks. tariely: "It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring..." I like the strange cheerfulness of those pictures.:-) Don't wake up the old man. Thank tariely. Ln X: The public green areas and plazas look amazing as do the ancient monuments and canal areas. Malory Park is one hell of a bat, mind you the sunken stuff done right is always great. I do have a query though- have you ever considered changing the pavement textures? Gobias' HD Sidewalk Mod contains ten different pavements, as a bonus it also changes the Maxis pavement textures for any other lot or bat. As always though you have some spot-on city design. Thanks for the suggestion. I don't know why I never really considered it. I like the white color of the default maxis pavement but I guess the texture isn't so good. I'll look in to it. Schulmanator: Looking awesome! Too bad about the rain... still an awesome place to visit. Now to pack my bags and head to the nearest stargate! Then as usual we shall prepare our finest for your visit. TekindusT: I need one of those Stargates, to travel to Ionica in RL. It's not a game anymore... michae95l: Looking great, I especially like how you've integrated the stadium. BTW, what the name of the seawall pack in the second image? Thanks. Keep up the amazing work! It's the JENXPARIS Quais de Seine from sc4 devotion. takemethere: Cool title and nice change in ambiance with the rainfall. I'm a bit curious about that weird looking road bridge in the 3rd image... not sure I'd feel comfortable driving over that one! Lol yeah, that bridge. It bothers me a lot but changing it required more work than I wanted to put in at the time. Thanks. dedgren: Don't get me wrong- I love fall trees and other flora and was an early advocate for their use in SC4. But if you are going to use seasonal stuff it needs to be consistent across your gamesquare- it shouldn't be fall in one place and summer on the lots next door. I know from experience that doing this is a huge task. But it is that sort of attention to detail that is the difference between an interesting pic and a compelling one. As long as I am in critic mode here, your use of the fall trees would have been greatly improved by randomly rotating them when you placed each tree. The trees in front of St. Michael's Chapel and around the Temple of Zeus illustrate this point. Again, don't get me wrong. I really like this CJ. But such is life- often the reward for a good performance is to be asked to step up one's game and make the next one truly great. Since this was the only fall entry of the year I didn't see it worthwhile investing the time to change all those trees. Also this is my first foray into seasonal flora. Thanks for the advice tho. Rotating the trees is a really great idea and I'll do that next time. kschmidt: Atlantis feel, about ! Posseidon raising from the deep; skyscraper like, stadium australian football ? Some trees don´t have such a big seasonal change still something to watch out for, but for the all over view not real disturbing. Like the canal parks with the raised plateau connections, well done ! Thanks kschmidt, glad you enjoy it.
  2. Version 1.0.0


    Its not common knowledge but reindeer, like all aircraft, have a finite range. What goes up... must come down and refuel from time to time. Its also a known fact that the faster you go, the faster you consume fuel. When these two facts were presented to the Federal Aeronautics Committee, they needed no further prodding to approve 23.5 million simoleans to fund subsidized research into determining how the reindeer are able to make their global trek each year in such a short amount of time. Unfortunately, the original 23.5 million was promptly consumed exploring the popular "Fairy Dust" theory. This study concluded that the only mammals capable of flight are bats, reindeer, really motivated squirrels and, of course, pigs... if you drink enough. There was also evidence to the effect that when the Cows Came Home... they too occasional flew... but the funding ran out before this could be confirmed. Of 347 reindeer picked at random for testing, 13 were found to be on steroids, 16 had various STDs, 137 had blood-alcohol levels over .15, 6 were found to be stuffed with old rags and bunched up newspaper, 4 tested positive for Angel Dust... but none tested positive for Fairy Dust. And as none of the other flying mammals were known to use Fairy Dust, this theory was quickly dismissed... when the funding was exhausted. Interest in the research waned for several years until the irrefutable tabloid Eclectic Enquirer published the now famous photo of what experts have agreed can only be a Reindeer Rest Stop. Armed with an additional 23.5 million in research grants, the FAC is actively recruiting woodsman and photo journalists to scour the forests and confirm the new belief that the reindeer have been using remote and secluded rest stops scattered throughout the region. The Reindeer Rest Stop is a ploppable MTP Reward that will blends in perfectly with your MTP Pine Forests. For 11 months out of the year, its merely a simple forest clearing with an abandoned shed and small coral. But come Christmas time, the lot magically begins the transformation into a vital transportation hub in old Saint Nick's jolly jaunt around the globe. The FAC Wants You There are too few volunteers and far too much territory to cover. The FAC needs robust and adventurous characters like yourself to seek out potential reindeer rest stops and gather photographic evidence that they do indeed exist. It won't be easy staking out the suspected clearings in the dead of night... warding off the cold and boredom in hope that you'll catch a glimpse of old Kringle and his team. But you'll know you are on the right tract when replacement reindeer appear in the coral... obviously on hand in case one of the team blows a hoof or something. As the big day gets closer, the clearing will transform into a landing zone. When you see the landing lights come on, its time to get that camera ready and you better be quick. Old Nick doesn't waste anytime refueling and zooming back off into the night on his appointed rounds. ** This lot requires the following dependencies PEG MTP Super Pack PEG Nick O'Laus Toy Company PEG Christmas Development Kit All Pegasus files are now legacy content and are no longer officially supported - however support from the wider community can be requested here.
  3. PEG Santa's Village

    Version 1.0.0


    This non-conditional reward is a special Christmas gift from the staff & members at Pegasus Production to you and the entire SC4 Community. Like so many of the Santa's Villages that exist in mountain areas, our Village mixes tourist trap with amusement park... and theme-related shopping. Its all here... the shops, the rides, the reindeer petting zoo, the Polar Express train ride... and, of course, the kids running crazy on sugar highs and natural adrenalin fueled by the expectation of spending a little suck-up time with Santa. This sprawling 10x10 lot was designed for use with the MTP. Its a reward... but also offers over 600 jobs to your local residents. Its transit enabled, of course... and puts on quite a light show at night. In fact, its only fair to warn you that between the lights and the seasonal background music, you just might find yourself getting sucked-in while spending long periods reliving Christmases Past & imagining that you are there. The lot was too large & complex for the BAT so it was assembled modular style with numerous models designed to fit together. Still, considering its size & complexity, the overall file size and resource usage is fairly small. One of the advantages of modular design is the repeated use of models to conserve game resources. For some reason, the snow never seems to melt around Santa's Village. Some say they have refrigeration coils buried in the ground... while others suspect that they truck it in from higher elevations each night. The kids, of course, believe otherwise. But however it gets there, it sure is a popular attraction during the warmer summer months. * The snow texture matches the PEG-MTP Snow Mod textures.... but does not require that mod. The snow texture on the lot remains year-round, even without the Snow Mod installed. ** This lot requires the following dependencies: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/20966-peg-mtp-super-pack/ and the PEG Christmas Development Pack: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/11097-peg-christmas-development-kit/ All Pegasus files are now legacy content and are no longer officially supported - however support from the wider community can be requested here. From the Staff & Crew at Pegasus Productions... Have a Very, Merry Christmas !!!

  5. Sol Omorfi

    Sol Omorfi is one of main destination in Invinia for holiday. Located in the edge of Invinia, Sol Omorfi consist of one big island and a little part of mainland, facing the ocean of Elysium. Sol Omorfi taken from earth language. Sol taken from latin language, means sun, and omorfi from greek language means beatiful. And Sol Omorfi means like, where the sun shines so beautiful. a little bit cheesy, i guess.. Here are the aerial view of Sol Omorfi with a little bit city guide. As you see, the city is still on development. As a main holiday destination, Sol Omorfi consist of many commercial, resorts and hotels, and of course this city comes with an airport and ferry dock, while the nature, beach, and hills still kept maintained. The City Central where there are hotels, shopping center, and main stations. Another Side of City Central where just next to the beach. There are sports center in the left that often held sport competition or just music concert. The Aquatic Research Center in the middle, become an interesting spot for the tourist. The Sol Omorfi Sport Center The Crescent Bay The terrain shaped like crescent because of meteor fall into Elysium and make a small crater crescent-shaped, that become one of interesting and the most prestigious spot in this city. The Hotels This are the most well-noted hotels in Sol Omorfi The Other Side of The City That's almost all about Sol Omorfi. Maybe there will be another entry for Sol Omorfi, but it will took more time, because this city currently in ruin because of teraforming the neighbor city. Thank you. -Azh-

The desert isn't exactly the best place to celebrate the season is it? I guess it's just the spirit that matters....
  7. PEG Toy Factory

    Version 1


    The Nick O'Laus Toy Company The Toy Factory is a ploppable reward offering a few hundred industrial (manufacturing) jobs. It is also a landmark that will improve the mayor's rating and attract tourists to the area. It sits on a 6x5 lot and uses many elements of the Mountain Theme Pack (MTP). It doesn't pollute much and has a modest value that generates some local revenue from taxes. Other features include a custom query, chimney smoke from the central chimney and a custom background sound effect... appropriately, the March Of The Toys theme. Overall, its a pretty good value for its $2000 price tag. Each game-year as Christmas approaches, the lot begins to transform. It starts with the factory being covered with snow and icicles. Christmas lights appear and other decorations soon appear. As Christmas gets nearer, reindeer appear and the loading area behind the factory transforms into a reindeer landing zone. Stealing a Pic of Old Saint Nic According to Legend, the best way to get a pic of St. Nic is to hide in the woods behind the factory and make sure you have a clear view of the landing zone behind the factory. Best results are in night/darkness mode. With the game in slow mode, landing lights on the loading zone will begin to flash shortly before St. Nic appears. When he does, act fast. Before you can say, "Ho Ho Ho", he will fly off into the night on his appointed rounds. Join in All The Reindeer Games The eight reindeer are somewhere on the factory's grounds. See if you can find and "tag" them all. To tag a deer, use the query cursor tool and try to get the reindeer's name to show in the query bubble. Some of the deer are easy to spot yet difficult to tag. You will probably need to rotate the view several times to get them all. Tag all eight to win the game. * Rudolph is in de-tox at the Betty Ford Clinic. I guess now we know where the red nose comes from. ** Why you are at it, you might as well look for Waldo as well. That guy really gets around. ** This lot requires the following dependencies PEG MTP Super Pack PEG Christmas Development Kit All Pegasus files are now legacy content and are no longer officially supported - however support from the wider community can be requested here.
  8. Version


    This package contains four alternate background music sound effect files for the Santa's Village lot. These are the sound effects that are played when you scroll near the lot... as if the music was playing from loud speakers in the Village... not the game's default background music. The four files are: 1. PEG-MTP_SV-AUDIO2_GM-JB.dat * Swing version of Jingle Bells by Glenn Miller 2. PEG-MTP_SV-AUDIO3_CB-LFC.dat * Looking for Christmas by Clint Black. Not very upbeat but it sure is pretty. 3. PEG-MTP_SV-AUDIO4_NSP-SR.dat * Sleigh Ride by the Nashville SuperPickers. Yee Haw!! 4. PEG-MTP_SV-AUDIO5_JTTW.dat * J oy To The World (Instrumental) The install will place all four files into the default Santa's Village folder. These are Highlander files... "There Can Be Only One! You must remove which ever AUDIO files, including the default AUDIO installed with the lot, that don't want to use. You can easily sample the various songs by just switching the files. **This file currently contains an .exe installer suitable for windows users.
