  10. A thread for BAT stuff I am working on. Finished Rally's/Checkers - textures are placeholders right now (I have new textures that are darker that go better with game palette), a tiny BAT that should go on a 3x2 lot (possibly corner only). Modding not close to finished yet, going to extrude everything tonight. Also want a rounded square roof on the top, and all the roof elements pushed forward so working on that as well. It is based mostly off the one on Portsmouth, Ohio, with a few modifications. Checker's/Rally's American convenience store expansion for MGB convenience stores - finished, may be released soon maybe as an update to rsc's file. Convenience Store Signs Cable Vans - 4 Cable Company Vans Cable Vans Commercial Vans - 15 Commercial Vans that deliver various products and services - PC Commercial Vans WIP Automata -18-wheelers with trucking brands not in game yet, along with moving trucks. Another set with four food trucks as well, possibly using FedEx Trucks as a base. 18 Wheel Set 1 JB Hunt Schneider Swift Hub Group Estes YRC Landstar Mayflower (old livery) United Van Lines ABF Upack Atlas Allied Modular Strip Mall - not started. A modular Strip Mall with 72 different brands that would go wall-to-wall on 1x3 and 2x3 lots as either a standalone, or one can plop and put together as a strip mall. It would be somewhat similar to KingLeno's modular plaza for C:S as well as the SG Plop-A-Shop, but it would be for low-wealth Sims. List is below. Signage textures are finished, modeling on 3dsMax is getting started. Planned release: Spring 2017. A 4x3 grocery store expansion is planned as well sometime next year. Billboard Set - A set of billboards with 78 different brands like Snapchat, Uber, Tide, and a Powerball billboard. There would also be political billboards of the three major parties in a folder if you want to extract them or not. Political billboards are not endorsements and are meant for imitation of realism. A few texture samples are below.Golden Corral - modeling on 3dsMax Menards - modeling on 3dsMax. Krystal, Rooms 2 Go, Meijer hypermarket -- not started ATM Props - A set of ATM props for people's lots. 18 different banks including PNC, Comerica, Washington Federal, and a generic ATM. Should be done fairly quickly.

  12. ReM - Simgoober's Costco Wholesale

    Version 1.01

    532 Downloads

    KOSC Presents: RetailMania - Simgoober's Costco Wholesale Introduction Costco Wholesale is the 3rd release from my RetailMania series. This is a set of re-lots for Simgoober's classic Costco Retail BAT aimed at expanding the retail location to include more than just the club warehouse. Package Overview These lots are redone to better coincide with their real-life counterparts and feature things like the food court, auto center and gas station. A set of custom gas station textures was created to better emulate the road markings found in actual Costco locations across the United States. Included in the following package are a set of custom textures and 4 lots: 3 CS$$ growables and 1 CS$$ ploppable landmark with jobs. The ploppable landmark only utilizes one of the 3 possible growable layouts. Both types share the same stats as follows: If you desire to plop the growables, use the buildingPlop cheat and look for exemplars starting at KOSC_SG_LargeCostcoWithGas (requires ExtraCheats.dll). Install Instructions Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. To uninstall, simply delete the files from your hard drive. General Stats The included lots will provide 591 CS$$ jobs. They are available in the following configuration: 2 10x10 left corner, stage 1 1 10x10 right corner, stage 1 Stats were generated with PIM-X, and coincide with the revised model pack version found on SC4D. Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README. Install Instructions Drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. Dependencies Main Building(s) You only need the model file, which can be found in the following 2 locations (you will only need ONE): Costco Retail OR SG Commercials Models Large Stores Props SHK Parking Pack BSC MEGA Props SG Vol. 1 BSC MEGA Props CP Vol. 1 BSC MEGA Props CP Vol. 2 BSC MEGA Props Misc Vol. 2 b62 Remastered: Wawa Gas & Car Show HD North American 53ft Semi Trailers Vol. 1 VIP girafe daisy VIP girafe feather grass TSC Orange MEGA Prop Pack Vol. 1 Textures SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures SuperSHK+ FA3 Parking Textures Costco Gas Textures (Included) I was a little more experimental this time around so the dependency list is a little larger than usual. Credit goes to Simgoober for the original BAT! Enjoy!
  13. Welcome back to Petal, today we are exploring to the major shopping area, west of the roundabout full of some of the best shopping in the area. Home of some of the large box stores, grocery stores, and restaurants , such as Walmart, Kohl's, Target, Winn-Dixie, Starbucks, and more! So let's hop in our cars, and drive to the latest place to shop in the Parish! As we start off; we start at the roundabout, where we will take the western way to the shopping, and more! Starting with a Winn-Dixie, Best Buy, and a McDonald's, the Winn-Dixie gives this town the southern feel that we preserve; and with the low, low prices; Keep the people happy with the freshest produce and meat, while across the street you can go buy that new computer to play Simcity 4! Going a bit more west, you come to the only Holiday Inn in the city; the original Holiday Inn was torn down in 1993 to build this; and the original was built in the 1960s with one of those big Great Signs of Holiday Inn, now it's a modern lodging area to provide all with comfortable lodging, and attempt to compete against the hotels in downtown like Holiday Park, and the other hotels on this part of the avenue. As well, is a simple Chevrolet dealership, with new cars and great service; the Petal Chevrolet dealership which has been in business since 1928, will service you till your happy! Like any other city, Walmart's store here is always packed, and with everything you need in a modern Walmart; that replaced the original one in 2015, it as well features Subway inside for a perfect stop for a sub, while shopping for your groceries, clothes, or anything really! Of course, there is non-shopping to; we have a Chuck E Cheese's and a Starbucks near the Holiday Inn, with a Rite Aid pharmacy, all in one intersection! There also, is a old Motorola office building for Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and the Alabama region to provide quick customer service and offices for those in the company or buying their products. Don't like Walmart? There is a Kohl's near the Days Inn and the Hampton Inn, to get you your discount clothing. Or if you want to go to the end of the shopping experience, is a Sam's Club, Lowe's or a Target. Notice the farms, and railroad; tells you the sense and the fast transition from city-suburb, to farms and rural. It really is a unique sight to see, and a characteristic of the city. Right off the avenue, sits a strip mall with a Arby's, Dollar General, and other small stores and a Home Depot, right in the suburban heart but not even a minute away from the avenue. To give you the sense of the shopping area's size, we couldn't even cover it in one photo from the end at the Roundabout! Show's how big it really is! We will see you next time here at Saint Clements Parish!

    Back in the early days of BAT, Oppie was master of retail BATs, specifically several variations of Europeans store. One of my favorites was his working of Dutch Home Imrpvement store "Gamma".

  16. ReM - Simgoober's Super Shopping Center #1

    Version 1.00b

    837 Downloads

    KOSC Presents: RetailMania - Simgoober's Super Shopping Center #1 Introduction Super Shopping Center #1 is the 2nd release from my RetailMania series and the first in a long line of classic Simgoober re-lots. This set of lots is based on Simgoober's original Super Center 2 strip mall complex and enhances the original through two principles: breaking up the original buildings into individual lots for growing as well as offering several gigantic new ploppable complexes in varying configurations. Package Overview The original strip mall complex has been made bigger, badder and massively more detailed than before. While the original came in two versions (18x6, 18x7), the lot layout was pretty straightforward and only differed in an additional row of parking space. This set kicks this up a notch and comes in three very distinct (and large) ploppable versions. Furthermore, each individual building also has a small footprint growable that is more suited for urban use. Included in the following package are a total of 6 lots: 3 CS$$ growables and ploppables. Two of the ploppables use all three buildings while the last complex is a smaller one that only utilizes two. All ploppables are transit enabled. If you desire to plop the growables, use the buildingPlop cheat and look for exemplars starting at KOSC_SG_Super (requires ExtraCheats.dll) General Stats The included growable lots will provide between 261-342 CS$$ jobs. They are available in the following configurations: 1 5x5 front, stage 2 2 7x3 front, stage 2 Ploppable lots are located in the landmarks menu and provide between 622-932 CS$$ jobs in the following flavors: 20x11, $111,000 plop cost 15x11, $100,000 plop cost 12x10, $80,000 plop cost Detailed stats and information can be found in the enclosed README.

  18. Mattb325 UK Retailers Revisited

    Version 1.0.0

    516 Downloads

    In my humble opinion, @mattb325's UK Retailers simply looked too amazing to be used without @kingofsimcity's new parking textures. So here I am, combining the work of two great members in one upload. Thank you to @twalsh102 for notifying me of dependencies I failed to list and wrongly listed. --------------- Installation: --------------- If you want to override the original lots: Once you download Mattb325's Retailers pack, please delete all of the old *.sc4lot files and replace them with the ones in this upload. IMPORTANT: it is key you keep Mattb325's *.sc4model and *.sc4desc files or the lots will not work as intended. If you want separate instances: You can safely delete everything except Mattb325's *.sc4model files. You may use both the overrides and separate instances at the same time; no conflicts will occur, as they are totally independent of each other. ------------------ Dependencies: ------------------ Mattb325 UK Retailers Pack DARKNITE or MAXISNITE SHK Parking Pack BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol02 BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol 01 BSC MEGA Props - Gascooker Vol01 SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures NDEX Texture Set Volume 1 nos.17 Essentials (v06+) Above all, have fun... nos.17

  25. The Bon Marche

    Version 1.0.0

    3,144 Downloads

    The Bon Marche, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- The Bon Marche (or the 'Good Market' / 'Good Deal' depending on how loose your translation is) was a department store chain launched in Seattle, WA. By the time it has been taken over by Macy's in 2005, it had about 50 stores in the North-West of the US. The Bon Marche really had its heyday from the late 1960's - 1990's. Many of the buildings went on to become anchor stores for surrounding mall developments. This building is a retro styled department store that was a similar design to many of their buildings around Washington state. Given they were purpose built spaces, Macy's thankfully didn't bulldoze the structures when they took over the chain and the buildings still stand today. I have provided two CS§§ lots with this download - one is a 4x4 lot that is great for down-town areas and the other is a 6x6 lot more suited to a suburban application. Use the CTRL while zoning to assist growth. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (CS§§) FOR ALL LOTS: Growth Stage: 1 & 3 (low, medium and high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 288 Capacity Satisfied: CS§ 1,553 | CS§§ 391 Pollution: 14 (Air)/ 9 (Water)/ 19 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 32 Mwh Water Consumed: 376 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago / NewYork / Houston / Euro Occupant Group: Commercial Services 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 or Desc files! If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. Either: (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) OR (http://gizmo.aplaceforwebsite.com/index.php) --------------------------------------- DEPENDENCIES: To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins folder: *BSC Textures Vol01 - (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90) To install, simply unzip the file into your plugins folder. Thankyou and enjoy.
