  1. Hello everyone, these are my first BAT creations, a set of modern freight cars props, based on freight cars you can see in North America. I decided to make them because the ones that already exists are based on old designs of freight cars, (designs used from 1940's to 1970's), or are a little bit unrealistic. So, as I couldn't find any others that fill my espectatives, I decided to make my own rail cars, based on rolling stock that can be found from southern Mexico to northern Canada. In this pic you can see a little bit of my work, some assorted cars in a railyard. Some cars are not noticeable, in next pics I'll show you the different types of freight cars and their different paint schemes I've made. So, please, tell me what you think about my work, I 'll appreciate your comments and opinions.
  2. North American Freight Cars Prop Pack

    Version 1.0.0

    143 Downloads

    Give realism to your railroad tracks, yards, sidings, spurs and industrial zones with these freight cars and locomotives dating from the 1980's to our modern days. This prop pack includes newer rolling stock pieces, some of them never seen before in SimCity 4, like: Autoracks Coil Cars Gondolas Boxcars Hoppers Tank Cars And so on. In this prop pack you will find around 300 different freight cars and other objects like containers, trailers etc, all of them rendered in HD and in 20 different versions (ortho, diagonal, curve fitting and FAR versions). Installation: Just extract the files contained in this .rar file into your plugins folder. For uninstalling it, just delet them from your plugins folder. Dependencies: None, this is intended to be a depencency. Enjoy it. Thanks to everyone who helped me in its development, without you, this would have been such a mess. And you, for downloading. For more information and/or notify me of an error with this, please visit this thread: Or PM at my Simtropolis profile.
  3. Welcome to the development thread for CT14 lots and BAT. Here's a quick list of current releases so you don't have to scroll through the thread to find them all: North American Freight Sidings Llama Terminal Company SABER LA River Troy Gasholder Building FAB Diagonal Industrials Lowrider Props In-N-Out Lowrider Show Old Time Power Plants - jestarr Boilerhouses --- North American Freight Sidings original first post: Inspired by the lack of existing lots representing protypical North American freight railroad sidings, I've created a system of lots that can be used to create eye-candy rail sidings. They are transit-enabled for appearance. I have been encouraged to share my progress in a dedicated thread by helpful feedback in the Show Us Your Railroads general thread, especially from SimCoug, T-Wrecks, raynev1. And the whole thing wouldn't exist without the Jestarr props. Features: 18 ploppable lots for different railcar types on double track rail Transit enabled connections to make the lots fit in seamlessly anywhere Three prop families to provide a variety from Jestarr's boxcars, intermodal and general merchandise freight ("Junkers") RRW compatibility Known issues: Transparent texture bug as described here http://community.simtropolis.com/forums/topic/42425-transparent-texture-issue/ The lots need custom icons created and added, through Reader as described here: http://www.wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=Tutorial:Inserting_a_custom_menu_icon_with_the_Ilive_Reader Future development ideas: Single Track Rail lots don't match exactly when using textures extracted from the RAM .dat, and I probably need permission to use them separately in any case. So, STR sidings may be a separate release at some point. Four-track lots would be prototypical for large yard trackage, but don't exist in RRW. Custom textures might allow some eye-candy four-track lots in future, this would resemble an updated subset of NCD. Dependencies: BSCMegaProps JES Vol01 (v1.0) - http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=342 For RRW, you need the NAM with RRW enabled. Download: Please report bugs here. Thanks!
  4. Yo, guys -- Not sure this is the right place, but here goes -- Here you have a custom-plop version of The Dao Chemicals Plant. It's got a double placement of the main plant, some filler lots for liquid tanks, parking, etc, etc. I figured it was the perfect place to make a siding and plop the small version of NBVC's Tank Car Filler Lot. And -- I was right -- it looks perfect !! The only real problem I have with the arrangement, is that the tank car siding generates massively long PASSENGER trains --- NO FREIGHT! Which, to say the least, is a bit odd (considering there are no residential areas close by). My question: (1) Is it possible to change the tank car lot to generate FREIGHT -- and ONLY FREIGHT ?? (2) Would the new freight lot generate its' own traffic -- or draw it from other factories linked by road?
  5. Version 1.1

    164 Downloads

    The Norfolk and Western Railway (NW) used the HL Class 40 ft, 2 bay "fishbelly" hopper cars to transport coal during the early to mid 20th century. These Late Steam/Transition era cars have the "sloped side sheets" with original road numbers 22000-25999, 38000-39999, and 68500-69499. [1] Some HL class were rebuilt into H9 class around 1949, this marked the beginning of the phasing out of the design. By 1960 they were using different cars and different paint schemes, and the Norfolk and Western was running diesel on its mainlines starting in 1959. [2] Installation: Simply unzip the "CT14 - Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars.zip" file into your plugins folder. Removal: Remove the "Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars" folder from your plugins folder (normally in Plugins/CT14/Norfolk and Western HL Class Hopper Cars". Lots which use these props will be a little bit emptier. Prop catalog: For SimCity, these cars have been rendered as HD props in a variety of angles and filled with coal in three variations, along with empty car versions. Orthogonal (3 load variations plus empty): - 90 deg Diagonal (3 load variations plus empty): - 45 deg Curve Fitting Angles (consecutive angles' loads will generally vary, plus empty versions of all): Left and Right versions of: - 5.625 deg - 11.25 deg - 16.875 deg - 22.5 deg - 28.125 deg - 33.75 deg - 39.375 deg Fractional Angles (3 load variations plus empty for each pair of angles): FA2 26.6/63.4 FA3 18.4/71.6 Release history: v1.0 - 20170225 - Initial release References: [1] Rex Desilets, "N&W HL Class Hopper Road Numbers?"

  19. 03 Introduction to Transport

    INTRODUCTION TO TRANSPORT Darrylton has an extensive yet relatively simple transport system. Highways carry a great deal of cargo in and out of the city. In these shots, you can get a pretty good glimpse of the downtown expressway system. In addition to the highways which handle a host of imports/exports, at every entrance to the city, the incoming rail lines split to handle both cargo transport and passenger transport, specifically so the cargo lines do not get bogged down with unnecessary traffic. A majority of imports and exports are handled by the cargo hub at the Inner Harbor which is lined with popular shops, forming another popular tourist destination. Finally, there is an international airport to handle the intake of all the tourists. Next post, we will take a look at some of what they are all coming to see.

ABOUT THE PROPOSER: Hoffbauer & Terrebonne was established in 1860, and created the historic street-car/trolley line on Central Street in what is now, historic Bristol. They provide railroad transit and currently manages the Liaojiang-Bristol Station in Liaojiang. They are a main passenger railroad company in Southern California, started by Anton Hoffbauer and Francis Terrebonne, in a attempt to cash in on the new railroad business by establishing work for the SoCal region of the United States. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PROPOSAL VOTING: http://strawpoll.me/6462784 Choose wisely, on the proposal. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Washington County Government & Bristol City Council Government Washington County Government Address: 1459 Main Street, Washington City, California Bristol City Council Government Address: 545 Barou Street, Bristol, California

New Concorde's most heavily-used freeway, the Central Concorde Expressway (T2), runs top to bottom on the right side of the picture. Also of note is the main rail terminus in New Concorde, near the center of the image, which is surrounded by the tallest skyscrapers in all of Trifort.
  22. North American Freight Sidings

    Version 1.1.0

    748 Downloads

    18 ploppable lots to let you build realistic looking freight train sidings for North American prototypes. The lots use default Maxis railway textures and are RRW friendly. The mixed freight, boxcar, intermodal, and single engine/single car lots all use prop families for variety. Some lots have overhanging props for rail cars on the rear track. These are divided into two types: left and right overhang. These lots should all fit with each other, in the same direction. Transit enabled pieces allow the active lines to blend in nicely with the sidings. They have props on only one track, and so can be used next to both left and right overhang pieces. There are versions of transit enabled pieces for both left and right ends of the sidings, with and without engines.
