screwpile_large

Ah yes, there we are!   The Screwpile still standing strong, on its screwed into the rock foundations since… um… I think 2012.

I know I have made more than one vauge promise over the last – few – years – to well update the broken links in the SPEX   (may the prop pox of a thousand camels be upon you Dropbox for messing with the public download folder, which was working perfectly fine until you faffed with it.)  Well, anyway I am pleased to announce that finally…  finally I have now updated all the links so that they actually point somewhere useful, like…

Drum roll please…

The SPEX on the STEX!

Oh… well to be completely honest that will basically bring up the complete content list for all of my lots over at Simtropolis – but good old ST has been going for a pretty long time now and last time I looked it is still going pretty solidly strong.

It could be reasoned that this site isn’t really needed anymore, – yes it did serve a very useful service in the intrim period after the EA Simcity.com site was closed and before all those important Maxis files were uploaded in one place on Simtropolis.

But… hey I am kinda fond of this little site and I have also just paid the mapping, domain name fee again which will keep us good for another two years at least.

As well as updating the broken links, I have been in and had a good tidy up of the pages, created a couple of new ones – in particular there is a new Download Simcity 4 page.   No, its not free, but the price is pretty reasonable and it comes all patched and ready to go.

I am also fixing up some of the images that I had hosted at Photobucket – again a while back they decided that you can only now upload 250 images for free – um well I have over 5000 images on my Photobucket so unless I want to pay for one of their reasonably pricey plans, all my PB images now have their lovely (not) watermark all over them.

Also updated are the New Carpathia tabs, which now includes the current Carpathia IV and Tales stories.   Mr. Fox still uses Simcity 4 images in his stories for terrestrial and city scenes, so entirely worthy of a menu tab here on the ‘pile.

spam_landing

SPAM – Small Landing Strip

Way back in June 2010 the MTP abcvs Small Landing Strip one of my first ever lots was released.  It was also pre-spam so did not include any of the better props and textures from that pack.

The landing strip has now been given a mini make-over with a few of the newer SPAM props and textures.  The movie set trailer check in facilities have been given a small upgrade to an A-Frame chalet. The rollo-gate prop has now also been fixed, and the main gate will now open and close properly.  The parking lot is now transit enabled for vehicles and pedestrians.

This lot will replace the Maxis Small Landing Strip in-game however all costs and stats remain the same as the Maxis original.

To install unzip and place the lot file in:

M.U.L.E. (Mountain UtiLity Extension)

The M.U.P.P.E.T.’s (Mountain Utility Personnel Providers of Extended Technology) have been busy creating a new utility pack for our mountain and rural areas.They have come up with the following five utility lots:*Waste to Energy Burn Pile
*Donkey Engine Power Generator
*Longdrop Composting Power Generator (toxic vapour)
*Longdrop Composting Power Generator (non-toxic)
*Moonshine Still Water PumpThe lots have varying smoke and ‘vapour’ effects depending on what the utility is actually producing. Naturally the most noxious of the four is the longdrop, and yes it does cause just a small amount of air pollution (10). The good news however is that while it produces the same power output as the donkey generator (500), its running costs are considerably less, after all… as long as the TP costs are covered… the rest is pretty much free.These utility lots have reduced stats and outputs, as they are not intended to power or water a whole tile… rather just a small isolated part of it. Of course if you want to stick one of these babies, in your ultra modern megatropolis, and call it an ‘art installation’ then of course you can!All lots have transparent base textures to blend with whichever terrain mod is being used, and are slope tolerant.

The boys have fired up the old donkey engine, and connected the flywheel to a generator.  I am not entirely sure if the set up is completely safety approved, but it does seem to work!    The boys seem to alternate between chopping wood and standing around yakking.
