    mipro Since 2006, the Barry Sanders Project has brought a slice of the Motor City to SimCity 4. From One Woodward Avenue and Cadillac Tower, to smaller gems like the Music Hall and Scarab Club, the BSP has painstakingly re-created nearly 50 Detroit and other Michigan landmarks for the game. But times change. What started as a group of 10 or so eager Michiganders has thinned to just two: JasonCW and nofunk. And what originally made sense as a mascot -- former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders -- is now an obscure reference that fails to recognize the many other great cities in Michigan from which great BATs can originate (and have already). So it's time for a reboot! The Barry Sanders Project is now mipro -- The Michigan Project -- and all releases going forward will be under the mipro label. You can still expect the same high quality BATs that the Barry Sanders Project is known for, just under a more identifiable and more descriptive name. Jasoncw and I are excited to start a new chapter in Detroit BATs, and we hope you all come along for the ride! mipro Essesntials mipro Essentials contains queries, props, and textures for current and future mipro uploads, and will occasionally be updated. mipro Essentials can be downloaded here. Completed BATs All mipro uploads have the "mipro" tag prefix in the title and can be found here. Uploads from 2012 and earlier have "BSP" in the title and are best found by searching the STEX for "BSP". Click here to view all mipro uploads and works-in-progress in Google Maps.

  4. Hello Everyone! It's been far, far too long. I hope life is treating each of you very well! I'm happy to present this entry, but it feels a little bittersweet. Today we will take one last drive through the Little Traverse Bay harbor country. This city has been nearly three years in the making! I never anticipated that it would take this long, but real life always seems to pop up. That being said, I feel like this is the most complete city I have ever made. I'm pretty happy with the direction that the build has taken over the years. On to some photos! US 31 winds its way around Little Traverse Bay, and we find ourselves starting at the southern most end of the city. This is where we find the vacation getaway that is Bay Harbor. The village boasts a gas station, county sheriff's office, volunteer fire station, and a few small shops. Bay Shore's population jumps up in the summer as vacationers arrive at their cottages. The premium attraction is the Grand Traverse Resort & Conference Center. There is a large golf course that is quite popular! Here is a closer look at the cottages that cover the bluffs. Further east along US 31 we arrive in Petoskey. The city has seen some changes, the biggest change being the water front. A better tour is available in the previous city Journal that highlights the town. This is the updated water front. The dock space organization is much better. I also wanted to highlight the water front's industrial heritage. Gentrification has swept through the heavy industries. Many of the working class homes have also been converted into more modern living spaces. The downtown area is still a bright spot in the region! East of Petoskey are the hills that surround Walloon Lake. The countryside is filled with wineries, dairy farms, and many staple crops. Bay shore, not to be confused with Bay Harbor, is visible at the bottom of the photo. This is the heart of Walloon Lake. The village is home to the regions agriculture. The railway station is over a hundred years old! The large rail trestle is a popular spot for photographers. A man made channel connects the two portions of the spring fed lake. This area is popular with kayak and boating enthusiasts, as well as fishermen. Farms, a church, a winery, and a few small homes dot the countryside south of Walloon Lake. Back on US 31, the highway winds northward along the coast line. We see the forests, dunes, hills, and the North Branch of Walloon Lake that make up Petosaga State Park. Whoa, watch the road... More farms, more coast line. We've arrived at Menonaqua, just outside of Harbor Springs. The main point of interest here is the Traverse Bay Regional Airport. Menonaqua also hosts the region's fuel depot, wind farms, recycling waste center, and a train station. Three highways connect in this small town. We'll continue west on US 31 from here. Fortunately there is good signage to point travelers in the right direction. Hey, check out this wind farms. Logging is still taking place here as well. We've nearly reached Harbor Springs. This farm stands overlooking the Pere Marquette Railway line as it approaches the town. We've arrived in downtown Harbor Springs. This small town is a famous vacation destination in the north country. The town has a strong tourist and industrial past. It is situated on the northwest corner of Little Traverse Bay, making a nearly perfect natural harbor. And here's that harbor. This photo is looking northward. The Iron Horse Hotel is still in operation both as a hotel and a train station. There are many tourist activities available along the boardwalk area. People are clearly enjoying the day. The western edge of downtown is the industrial area. Manufacturing in the area has changed over the years, but Northern Lumber and Acme Boiler continue to be profitable. Harbor Mill Works closed two decades ago, but it has been revitalized as a centerpiece for the downtown. It now houses shops, restaurants, and apartments. US 31 winds north at Harbor Springs, but this photo is taken looking towards the south, back towards the Bay. The land formation is Stafford's Point, an homage to the family that settled here in the early 1800's. The point is now home to multi-millionaires. At the bottom of the photo is Harbor Springs School and the Point West neighborhood. The Harbor Springs Union Hall and the industrial area can also be seen. Well, we've come to the final photo, and it pretty much sums up life in this corner of the word. We see people of all backgrounds lining the pier. Some are fishing, some are boat watching, others swim or just enjoy the day. A sharp looking speed boat is returning from a cruise on the bay... That's all from Harbor Country! Thank you all for reading over the past few years! It has been a lot of fun making this project and sharing it with all of you! I hope life continues to treat each of you very well.
  5. Busy busy harbor

    From the album Waterside (S3-17-W)

    Harbor Springs is always a busy place, especially in the harbor itself! The harbor has docks for private boats and yachts, an in-and-out service, a pier with a lighthouse, and a freight dock for fishing boats and deliveries. The downtown area is connected to the harbor and this proves to be a major tourist destination.
  6. Tree Lighting in the Town Square

    From the album Winter Wonderland (S3-21-M)

    I've never been big on Christmas Day. I like Christmas Eve. The anticipation. The gathering of family and friends. The excitemtent of what's to come tomorrow. That's what these two images are meant to invoke. Here are two uniquely Midwestern spins on winter, and Christmas. A late evening train bringing families together, as the local townspeople put the final touches on the decorations. A tree lighting ceremony in the town square complete with music and warm drinks. Celebrations of winter at it's best!

    The Barry Sanders Project is now mipro! Located in downtown Detroit, One Detroit Center is the tallest office building in the state of Michigan. Originally concieved as a set of twin towers, Two Detroit Center was left unbuilt when demand for downtown office space did not justify another 1.6 million sq ft skyscraper. One Detroit Center was designed by noted architects John Burgee and Philip Johnson, and was constructed in 1993 in the postmodern style, with Flemish-inspired neo-gothic spires. The building is home to many law firms and banks. Dependencies: Requires mipro Essentials December 2013 or newer. 5x3 and 3x3 growable and ploppable. Grows in Houston and Euro tilesets.

    1520 Woodward Avenue was built in 1917. In 1945, women's clothing company Lane Bryant bought the building and had the facade reclad in the Art Deco style by noted local architect, Charles Agree. Although abandoned by the apparel company in the 1980s, the building is still referred to by its former tenant. In 2011, the building was converted into incubator space for technology start-ups. The Lane Bryant Building provides 148 jobs for your city.

    Upon completion in 1928, the Penobscot Building was the tallest building in the world outside of New York and Chicago. This art deco tower is the third, tallest, and most iconic building in the greater Penobscot Block office complex. It was designed by Wirt Rowland of Smith, Hinchman & Grylls, who designed the nearby Guardian Building, built a year later. Corrado Parducci, a local architectural scupltor, provided Native American themed ornament for the building which is named after the Penobscot Nation. I first started this BAT way back in 2006 (over 7 years ago!), and for various reasons I needed to restart it. I worked on Penobscot Mk. II from 2007-2008. Once again, as I progressed through the building I ran into problems and had to restart. I quietly worked on Penobscot Mk. III from 2012 to the present, and not even including the previous attempts it's been by far the most hours I've put into a BAT. Enjoy! 3x3 growable and ploppable CO§§§ lot. CAM Version included. During the winter the nitelites change to a Christmas scheme! MaxisNite and DarkNite night versions included. DarkNite requires the Day and Nite Modd.

  12. Hello! How are you today? The expected American response to that question is 'good', then we expect you to pay for it and get out. NOT HERE AT GREAT LAKES, GREAT TIMES! We are totally retooling that rust belt, all day and all night. So stay and be proud to state your business. Sit down, breathe the air, and stick your toes in the sand and water. Where was I? Well, it's summer, so that means I like to do things that are not necessarily Simtrop related. I do stuff like work outrageous amounts of overtime, enjoy patio coolers with the fam, pay crazy amounts of money to attend national sporting events with friends, drive aimlessly around the country by myself because I hate to fly, chit-chat with friendly people I'll probably never talk to again, and have my truck repaired in exotic faraway repair shops. Recently I have felt moved to make an update. Mostly to try to work within this terrific new site update, and partly to show you that I am still out there, updating a city journal that people may or may not read, in a tiny corner of what we all call the interspherewebternet. We call it that, right? That's quite a tangent, but I just felt like writing, and let's be real, you just felt like reading. You know you did. Hey look! Replies! Militant Radical: Thanks! I wanted something different, tunnels was the answer. Schulmanator: I'll see what I can do to maintain my current level of awesomeness. Every day is a battle, let me tell yah. 47ply: Simply thank you! Pinkindustry: Thanks! This one was a fun one to make. Kim Sunwoo: Thank you! I do love the beach. Probably the best place on Earth. Tonraq: I was out sailing last Saturday on my uncle's boat. It's fun, but I wouldn't have the patience to own one. I go back and forth about buying a sea-doo. I'd whip around on it until I'm bored, then drive screaming hard into the beach. SimCoug: Thank you sir! Once again, the historic harbor shows why it's my favorite add on in recent years. Endless stuff to build with there. The stairways and paths blend together quite well. Tonyr: Thanks! gviper: Thanks! Major from Bajor: I know CPR. Themistokles: I believe it will be a perpetual construction area. People need jobs, so I'll just have them continuously building something. ANYTHING! So to answer your question, probably a Starbucks. Neto Dari: Thank you! Sucram17: Lotting is fun and frustrating. Like fishing, except with a computer and more beer. agnostiskbarn: Thanks man! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Alright, here are a few photos of things I have worked on, but never really had a place to put them. This journal entry is more like a cheesy clip show than a full on update, but hey, it's free. So you've got that going for yah. Let's get to it. Here we see an industrial neighborhood from Holland. The area was never actually completed, and I moved on to another project before entirely completing the city tile. There may be a full update of Holland to include this part of town, but until then, this is the only view there is. So I used this photo in the 'Show us your railroad' contest a while back. I meant to present a likely, but fictitious, version of the railroad in my state that I never saw, but would have really enjoyed. Michigan was once layered with railroads. A map from the late 1800's shows a state that had a massive rail network. The majority of it is gone. This entry pays an homage to that passage in time. So this here is what was originally envisioned when Petoskey was made. Head over to the entry Northern Michigan Harbor Towns: Petoskey, to see the final version. Everything I seem to build is flat, flat, flat. I wanted something different and halfway into building the downtown, I wanted some elevation. So redoing an entire map and reconfiguring a downtown was the only possible outcome. Three hours of building turned into one instant of: Nope. Delete, and the rest became what it is now. How many of us have done that? In this case it was a happy decision. Here is that very Cleveland Christmas from back in December. A Christmas in July if you will. The big changes that finally made their way into the finished entry can be seen with the snow, and the choice of buildings. Seraf's seasonal buildings are fantastic. I wanted to showcase them here out of respect for the work put into them. The trouble was getting snow all over the city, to fit in with the parade, and cover the street. I used some white colored sand to simulate the snow, but the look just wasn't there. Ultimately, the buildings that fit best didn't fit with the surroundings. The great part is that I just get to find another scene that works best with the buildings! I'm a huge fan of summer. It is without a doubt my favorite time of the year. For some reason I like to make fall and winter scenes the most. A contradiction. This is another scene that was used as a contest entry. I believe it was the Christmas or the favorite season contest, I don't recall. In this case I made one giant lot. This was the first time I had attempted something like this. It was really fun! The building process was great. The challenge became adding the effects and learning that each effect doesn't necessarily take place exactly where the marker is. Choosing an era and combing the architecture into it was a real fun exercise as well. This game really allows for some excellent creative outlet. Well, there you have it. The first Great Lakes, Great Times entry on the new format. This was fun to make and I hope you enjoyed it. I hope all of you are well and that you have a good, safe week.

    A lighthouse has existed at the Port of Grand Haven since 1839. Since then the pier has been extended and lighthouses have been built and modified on it until it reached its current state in 1922. A catwalk makes the inner and entrance lights accessible during the Lake Michigan's dramatic storms. The lighthouse's distinctive long pier has made it a popular tourist destination on the west coast of Michigan. The Grand Haven Lighthouse is located in Grand Haven, Michigan. The great length of the pier has been accommodated as an overhang prop for your convenience. Plop it on a 1x1 piece of land, and the pier will overhang out to its full length. Grand Haven Lighthouse has been uploaded in celebration of the STEX's 100,000,000th download. My interview for the event can be read here. 1x1 overhang landmark lot.

    Starting out as a small wooden structure in 1872, the Holland Harbor Light, also known as Big Red, was gradually added to and modified until it reached is present state in 1932. In 1956 the building was sandblasted and freshly painted vibrant red, inspiring the lighthouse's nickname. Big Red is located in Holland, Michigan. Because of its small size, a high definition version of Big Red Lighthouse is being offered. Prop versions, for use by lotters, have also been included in a separate .zip.

  16. Motown Museum

    Motown Records was founded by Berry Gordy, Jr. in 1959 in Detroit, Michigan. Gordy purchased 2648 West Grand Boulevard, where he boldly hung a sign “Hitsville U.S.A.” over the front door. Motown would be headquartered there for the next decade, absorbing adjoining buildings on both sides of the street, transforming it into a hits factory. Hitsville U.S.A. and an attached house were converted into the Motown Museum in 1985. With the slogan "The Sound of Young America", Motown Records was a powerful force of racial integration in the 1960s, making pop-infused R&B that was accessible to young people of all races. Kids jumped police-guarded barriers segregating concerts, venues which previously banned black artists began allowing them, and the Motown Sound permeated through all of American culture. This BAT is uploaded in celebration of Black History Month. 2x3 museum lot. MaxisNite and DarkNite night versions included. DarkNite requires the Day and Nite Modd.

    An old favorite comes back with fresh textures and DarkNite compatibility! The Film Exchange Building was built at the corner of Cass and Montcalm in 1926 for the distribution and booking of movies for the Detroit area. The building featured fireproof vaults for the nitrate films. By 1964, the building was mainly occupied by unions. In the 1970s, the doors were finally closed on the Film Exchange Building. A point of clarification: This version is completely remodded, so you can have both the old version AND the new version in your plugins folder and there will be no conflicts. However, if you only want to use the new version, you will want to delete all files associated with the old version. 2x3 growable and ploppable CO$$.

    G'Day Simtropians, Today I wish to upload a map requested courtesy of Portie over at SC4D. Thanks mate. Detroit is located on the banks of the Detroit River and Lake St Clair. Welcome to Motown. See me up CLOSE and personal. This is a real world map and is terrain and scale accurate, Wouanagaine's mapper or terraformer is required to import it into SC4,if using terraformer there are some caveats to follow in the readme. It measures 90.112km x 81.92km. A readme is included containing links and instructions. That's all I think. Cheers
