    Version 1.0.0

    859 Downloads

    Beverly Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Bring some retro mid-century glamour to your cities with Beverly Apartments. It is inspired by a real-life US west coast building which was originally designed as an office building, but with its distinctive, cantilievered, bucket-shaped balconies, was ripe for a residential re-purposing in SC4. In game it is offered as an R§§ apartment. The apartments are mostly 1 bedroom, but with wide curtain glass windows feel spacious and airy. The ground floor and lower ground floors are reserved for shops and gallery spaces. Secure underground parking and a pool complete the ammenities for all the residents. These apartments are presented in 2 options: a 4x2 and a 4x3 lot. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§: Lot size : 4x2 & 4x3 Growth Stage: 6 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §565 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,589, R§§ 878 Pollution: 7 (Air)/ 3 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 12 Mwh Water Consumed: 33 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File! If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES: As these models contain garaged underground parking, the lots do not come with parking textures. If you wish to add acres of parking or change the concrete textures, please use the lot editor to do so. --------------------------------------- DEPENDENCIES: This lot requires no external dependencies. --------------------------------------- To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

  2. Ennuyeuse Apartments

    Version 1.0.0

    1,319 Downloads

    Ennuyeuse Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Inspired by any number of the bland, blah and boring apartment blocks that have sprung up all around the world since the turn of the 21st century, I present Ennuyeuse Apartments. These sorts of apartments are clean and functional and appeal to conservative buyers with a safe, neutral colour palette of whites, creams, taupes and of course the newest kid on the neutral block: 'greige' trims and feature walls ('greige' is the colour and word combination of a deep warm grey on a beige base). No doubt in 30 years time, 'greige' will become as despised as the 1970s mission-browns and burnt oranges. All these apartment complexes are typically 8 stories tall, thereby broadening the conservative buyer appeal to the lucrative Asian market (the number 8 - pronounced 'Ba' in Mandarin sounds similar to 'Fa' which means to 'Make a Fortune' - hence the lucky association). However, given that these apartments usually use quite cheap materials with minimal noise and thermal insulation, the only people making a fortune are the developers! Floors 7 & 8 are reserved for the penthouse. The apartments feature other crowd pleasers such as securely garaged, underground parking; lift access; hidden drying balconies (these are the two tall louvered areas on both sides of the building); glass-railings on the main balconies and reverse cycle ducted airconditioning. Open-concept living areas, granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances, ensuite and guest bathrooms all add to the broad buyer appeal. The planting is non-descript with crowd pleasing evergreens all on well-lit, compact and easy-to-maintain grounds ensuring that strata levies/HOA fees are kept to a minimum. These apartments are presented in 3 options: a 2x2, a 3x3 and a 5x5 lot. Despite their predictability, these are a good mid-rise, medium wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§: Lot size : 2x2 & 2x3 Growth Stage: 5 & 6 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §412 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 591, R§§ 327 Pollution: 2 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 5 Mwh Water Consumed: 13 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building Lot size : 5x5 Growth Stage: 4 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §795 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,178, R§§ 652 Pollution: 5 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 9 Mwh Water Consumed: 25 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File!

If you wish to add acres of parking or change the concrete textures, please use the lot editor to do so. --------------------------------------- DEPENDENCIES: To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins: *BSC MEGA Props - Mattb325Vol02.dat: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2383 *BSC Mega Props - Mattb325Vol03.dat: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2768 *BSC Texture Pack - CPVol01.dat: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=101 --------------------------------------- To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

    Version 1.0.1

    1,027 Downloads

    Brief Introduction This pack contains mostly medium density w2w buildings based on RL buildings in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. These buildings look best in older downtown environments, just like the RL buildings. Basic Information - Lot sizes: 1x1, 1x2 (corner), 2x1 (corner) and 1x3 - Stages: 3 and 5 - Tileset: all Dependencies If you've downloaded my previous pack, then you should already have it: Notes I've included more versions for two buildings, namely "Viamonte" and "Realico" (see image above): - There is a R$$ version of "Viamonte" - There is a fire station version of "Realico" as well as a parking lot version, just like in RL. Don't want these extra versions? Simply delete unwanted folder. You can follow my work here. Enjoy!
  4. Parkland Lofts

    Version 1.0.0

    3,687 Downloads

    Parkland Lofts, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Inspired by a new build near the University precinct in Little Rock Arkansas, 'Parkland Lofts' is the modern apartment equivalent of the old internationalist style of the 1970s. It is the sort of new apartment building that can be found in London, Sydney, Dusseldorf, Moscow, Paris, Tokyo or even Little Rock. Despite being billed as 'stylish' and having 'cutting edge design' (developers are generally fast and loose with new-build descriptions), these buildings are in fact bereft of almost all ornamentation and sense of place, such that they will fit in anywhere. The Little Rock version is called 'Park Lane' and actually sits in the middle of a shopping mall car-park - yuck - so as you can imagine, I have taken artistic liberties with the BAT and LOT. It has been a while since I released any apartment buildings: medium density residentials are certainly the main-stay of most cities, and smaller mid-rise offerings are still especially lacking in game. This apartment complex is offered on a range of medium and high density lots in a variety of configurations: 2x5, 5x2, 5x3, 5x5 and 6x6. If you use the CTRL Key while zoning, these will grow (especially the 5x5 and 6x6 offerings), and all of them grew quite easily for me. I also find that having SOMY's low-wealth apartments (which have identical lot sizes and can upgrade more easily) helps to avoid the game breaking up the lots into smaller parcels, but it is by no means necessary to have SOMY's files in order to get these growing. Given how ubiquitous this design is, these lots are designed to grow on all tilesets. The lots also use prop families and shaded props to ensure a lot of variety. Underground parking is provided for all but the 5x2/2x5 version and some even have such wonderful amenities as a pool and communal BBQ. Bliss indeed. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (R§§ 5x2, 5x3 and 2x5): Growth Stage: 5 & 6 (medium & high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 343 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,052, R§§ 582 Pollution: 4 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 8 Mwh Water Consumed: 23 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: Residential --------------------------------------- STATS (R§§ 5x5 and 6x6): Growth Stage: 5 (medium & high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 532 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 2,102, R§§ 1,162 Pollution: 9 (Air)/ 4 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 16 Mwh Water Consumed: 44 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: Residential --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO file types in two separate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. You must choose only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod.

  5. Claridge II Townhome

    Version 1.0.0

    2,836 Downloads

    The Claridge II, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Based on one of the Cities Skylines buildings, the Claridge II is typical of many of the newer homes built in the mid-atlantic states. Where once the American suburban dream was a sprawling ranch-style home on a 150' wide lot, mounting cost pressures on all fronts (from land purchase to materials and construction to upkeep and travel-time) have forced developers to reduce the footprints of these modern, middle-class homes. These houses are still large by international standards - most have over 2,000 sq ft of living space within their three floors. Another distinctive feature of these mid-atlantic houses is that all of the main living spaces & bedrooms are on the top two floors above the garage and a rumpus space: the front door is usually reached via a long flight of stairs. This design feature is a direct response to the powerful hurricanes and devastating storm surges which regularly hit the eastern seaboard. There are seven different colour variations for this building. They are all contained within a prop family for maximum variation. All of the buildings are medium-density and mid-wealth, offered as growable only (ploppable residentials don't work) on the American Tilesets. The lot variations are 1x2, 2x2 and 4x4. Each lot has different occupant details depending on its size. Being town-homes, these sorts of buildings are extremely useful as a transition between large downtown apartments, mid-rise apartments, row houses and suburban homes. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (R§§ 1x2): Growth Stage: 4 (medium & high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 227 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 49, R§§ 28 Pollution: 1 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 1 Mwh Water Consumed: 2 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston Occupant Group: Residential --------------------------------------- STATS (R§§ 2x2): Growth Stage: 4 (medium & high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 320 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 150, R§§ 80 Pollution: 1 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 2 Mwh Water Consumed: 4 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston Occupant Group: Residential --------------------------------------- STATS (R§§ 4x4): Growth Stage: 4 (medium & high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 420 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 370, R§§ 290 Pollution: 1 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 4 Mwh Water Consumed: 7 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston Occupant Group: Residential NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO file types in two seperate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

  8. SimCoug's Diagonal W2W Tenements

    Version

    2,485 Downloads

    Disclaimer: THIS SET OF LOTS IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY. Please read below for details. Description: This is a set of 16 growable 1x1 lots using C.P.'s 19th Century Tenements. This is a unique set of lots because it is only intended for placement along diagonal roads, streets or avenues. THESE WILL NOT GROW ALONG ORTHGONAL ROADS. Each lot is modded to grow on a "corner", which is essentially what every diagonal road looks like to the game simulator. 8 of the lots will grow on "left corners" and 8 lots will grow on "right corners" so you will see a wide variety of lots. In addition, prop families were used liberally on the lots to ensure a diverse look. I've included R$ and R$$ lots. Although the building models are the same, I've used props on the lots to help tell them apart (flowers for R$$ and garbage for R$, etc). Each lot is modded with statistics equivalent to Maxis values. These diagonal lots will ONLY GROW ON THE EURO TILESET (growth stages 5 & 6) with medium and high density zones. Dependencies: BSC Textures Pack CycleDog Vol 1 BSC MEGA Props CP Vol01 BSC MEGA Props CP Vol02 BSC MEGA Props SG Vol01 BSC MEGA Props D66 Vol01 BSC MEGA Props MJB Vol01 CP Early 19th Century Tenements ('CP_Early19thCenturyTenements.dat' file only) Installation: Simply unzip the file and put the 'SimCougs Diagonal W2W Tenements' folder in your plugins (don't forget the dependencies). Place the 'SimCoug Diagonal W2W Tenements Tutorial' outside of your plugin folder - this is simply a series of images to help you with the placement of these lots. Developer notes: I will repeat this again: THIS SET OF LOTS IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY. It will take time and patience to grow these lots along diagonal roads as they were intended. While the modding of these lots ensures that they will not grow on orthogonal roads, orthogonal lots can and will grow along diagonal roads. That means you may have a wild mix of lots along your diagonal roads. In order to keep things in line, you will need to keep your bulldoze tool handy, and be quick to mark the 'Make Historical" box in the query. I've used the maxis $$ pavers as the base texture for these lots, so any sidewalk mod you use should override and blend seamlessly with these lots. Please take a look at the tutorial images included with this download for more details. Support: For comments, questions or help, please visit SimCoug's Lot&Mod Den Special Thanks: Thanks to OP4 for creating the BLAM blank, which was used as the building model for these lots. A special thanks to C.P. for creating the brilliant Early 19th Century Tenements set (and including diagonal models!) Thanks to the great BATers who generously shared their prop models - this set would not be possible without them. Also, thanks for the gang over at SimPeg for all the suggestions and encouragement.

    Version

    5,311 Downloads

    A purely fictional creation, POD apartments is inspired by a recent Development Application approval drawing for a new infill building in Sydney's inner city suburb of Chippendale. This modern building, while edgily futuristic, has an element of organic flow with the addition of round-edged and angled fibre-glass panels to the façade. In real life it will sit cheek-by-jowl alongside 19th warehouses and late 20th apartments. Happily it also blends into many streetscapes in SC4 as well. It is available on a 4x2, 4x3, 4x4 and 6x6 lot. It is designed to grow on medium and high densities but is limited to the Houston and European tile sets only.

  11. 5657 Wilshire Blvd

    Version

    7,808 Downloads

    5657 Wilshire Blvd, by Mattb325. Another non-descript 'filler' building on Wiltshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, 5657 Wilshire Blvd is mid-rise CS$$ building for medium and high density zones. I choose this particular building as it is a really good example of an old commercial or light industrial (such as small scale manufacturing) structure that has had the facade undergo modernisation to attract better tenants, but the sides and rear of the building have been left largely untouched. In this case, the front of the building has been given gleaming white tiles, large new windows in deep blue tint, green marble-clad columns and planter boxes along the fifth floor which is skylit. The top floor space would be perfect for creative office suites, like architectural or advertising agencies. Note: I have taken artistic liberties with the top floor of the building as the first cut (which was close to the RL building) looked a bit odd in game. This building works as both a W2W as well as stand alone (per the original, I have included windows down the side walls); the bill boards are in families so a different version will appear each time this grows. This is offered as a commercial services building in order to help soak up the high demand for this type (I can never find enough CS$$/CS$$$ stuff for my cities); and grows on a 2x3 lot on medium density and on all tilesets. STATS: Growth Stage: 5 Bulldoze Cost: $379 Capacity Satisfied: CS$$ 240, (CS$ 953 when dilapidated) Pollution at Centre: 8 (air) / 5 (water) / 11 (garbage) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 20 Mwh Water Consumed: 32 Gallons Construction Time: 37 days DEPENDENCIES: This file has no external dependencies.

    DeVries Villas, by Mattb325. DeVries Villas are modern, 3 floor condominiums suited to many urban environments. While the design is quite modern, the large curved glass wall at the front gives nod to the Art Deco era and also provides each townhouse with a private sun-terrace. An additional benefit is that each home has an attached garage making these homes perfect for urban infill. The design itself was inspired by some of the homes around Portland, Oregon. Executed in brick, rubblestone and laquered cedar infill panels, these multi-family townhouses have an abundance of light and, because of their small footprint, they are designed for a courtyard settng which makes a good transition between suburban sprawl and downtown hi-rises. There are four versions: an orthogonal and 45 degree rotation; each variant is rendered in either white or brown brick. Perfect for R$$ Sims, DeVries Villas are quite an elegant small-footprint home and are presented on 1x1, 1x2, 4x4 and 5x5 lots. The 1x1 and 1x2 will also work in a W2W environment and have similar stats to the Maxis rowhomes/small modern apartments which first appear on the Stage 5 medium density zones. The 4x4 and 5x5 lots use only the 45 degree models and have very complex 'courtyard' style lotting. All models are in building and prop families to ensure that repetition of these lots is desirable rather than unwanted; growing many 4x4/5x5 lots together creates quite a unique urban development, as shown in the images. All lots grow easily (the images were taken in both an empty plugins and one ith 3.2GB of other content) on medium and high density zones at stage 5 on the Houston, Chicago and New York tilesets. I have included two prop examplars (also in families) of the Orthogonal variants for lot makers to use themselves. Use the control key while zoning to assist growth. STATS (1x1 and 1x2 lots - Ortho only) Bulldoze Cost: $224 Capacity Satisfied: R$$ 33 (R$ 58 when dilapidated) Pollution: 1 (air) / 1 (water) / 4 (garbage) Radius: 5 / 6 / 0 Power Consumed: 1 MwH Water Consumed: 3 Gallons STATS (4x4 and 5x5 lots - 45 Degree rotation only) Bulldoze Cost: $517 Capacity Satisfied: R$$ 316 (R$ 569 when dilapidated) Pollution: 2 (air) / 1 (water) / 4 (garbage) Radius: 5 / 6 / 0 Power Consumed: 5 MwH Water Consumed: 13 Gallons DEPENDENCIES (note you must be registered and logged in at the SC4 Devotion LEX to download): BSC BAT Props Mattb325 Vol02 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2383) BSC MEGA Prop Pack CP Vol01 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1180) BSC MEGA Prop Pack CP Vol02 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2790) BSC TexturePack Cycledogg V 01b (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=101) Thanks and enjoy

    Waterloo Apartments, by Mattb325. Waterloo apartments is a modern, 6 floor boutique block of condominiums suited to many urban environments. Executed in brick and colored concrete panels, this multi-family home has an abundance of light and, thanks to fairly complex massing, relatively private outdoor spaces, and given its scale, makes a good transition between suburban sprawl and downtown hi-rises. Perfect for R$$ Sims, Waterloo Apartments are presented on 2x2, 4x4 and 5x5 lots. The 2x2 will also fit in with W2W environments (both of itself and when grown amongst other traditional W2W buildings), while the 4x4 and 5x5 lots feature a common pool and open landscaped grounds to lend an air of tranquility and luxury. The 2x2 building also has occupancy stats similar to many of the Maxis 'small condo' sets so will give those apartments a run for their money. All lots grow on medium and high density zones at stage 5 on all tilesets. Use the control key while zoning to assist growth.

    Englewood Condominiums, by Mattb325. Step back in time to the 80's. Set amongst pine woods, this euro-luxe, multi-level apartment complex is missing only the Pontiac trans-am parked in the front. With its massive expanse of shingled roof, it will suit northern European styled cities as well as those wishing to create North-Western and upper mid-western styled US towns. Additionally, Englewood Condos are an ideal small apartment complex to assist in transitioning from the low density suburban sprawl of single family homes to the higher density apartments of your downtown. Each building has 10 townhouse style apartments/condos; each unit has a complex, split-level floor plan spanning multiple floors and each unit enjoys a private, sun-soaked terrace at the top of the apartment. Wood fires in some of the larger apartments are great for sipping brandy from oversized balloons on a wool-skin rug while watching episodes of M.A.S.H. on your new CRT deluxe PYE 22" color TV Set with teletext capability Perfect for R$$ Sims, Englewood Condominiums are presented on a 2x3 and 4x3 lot. This will grow on medium and high density zones at stage 5. Use the control key while zoning to assist growth.

    Saville Condominiums, by Mattb325. Saville Condos turn the traditional terrace on its head. This ultramodern, four floor multi-family home has two individual townhouse style apartments and, a rare commodity for inner city homes: an attached garage. Each home has soaring windows and large outdoor balconies to ensure a breezy connection with the outdoors. As an added bonus, because the living areas are above the garage, privacy from the street is ensured. Executed in plaster and steel, these apartments are specifically designed to fit the traditional W2W landscape as modern urban infill buildings, but I have also modelled windows in the side walls to ensure that they can fit into other medium density schemes as well by not leaving a large blank wall when they grow on street corners. Saville Condominiums are presented on a 1x2 lot. There are three variants: red, blue and green accent walls. These are in a building family and the colour variants will appear at random on the lots. This will grow on medium and high density zones at stage 5. STATS: Bulldoze Cost: $240 Capacity Satisfied: R$$ 43 (R$75 when dilapidated) Pollution: 1 (air) / 1 (water) / 4 (garbage) Radius: 5 / 6 / 0 Power Consumed: 1 MwH Water Consumed: 3 Gallons DEPENDENCIES (note you must be registered and logged in at the SC4 Devotion LEX to download): BSC BAT Props Mattb325 Vol03 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2768) BSC MEGA Prop Pack CP Vol01 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1180) BSC MEGA Prop Pack CP Vol02 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2790) Thanks and enjoy

    Regis Condominiums, by Mattb325. Regis Condos are a luxurious small apartment complex which will assist in transitioning from the low density suburban sprawl of single family homes to the higher density apartments of your downtown. I always struggle to find low-rise medium density content (including Maxis stuff), so have created these composite construction multi-family dwellings. Executed in plaster and stone facades, these apartments are specifically designed to look like larger mansions, with quite complicated massing, steeply pitched roofs, large windows and chimneys: the inspiration has come from similar developments on the Mid Atlantic coastal communities in the US. Each building has 4 townhouse style apartments/condos; each unit has three to four floors and each enjoys either its own private terrace at the top of the apartment as well as juliette balconies from the master suite. Aimed at the luxury end of the market for R$$ Sims, Regis Condominiums are presented on a 2x1, 2x3 and 4x4 lot. There are two variants: chocolate colored walls with a light grey imitation slate roof and dove grey colored walls with brown shingles. These are in a building family and will appear at random on the 2x1 lot. The larger lots are have identical to enable the construction of homogenous residential zones. This will grow on medium and high density zones at stages 4 & 5. Use the control key while zoning to assist growth.
