Description
Basic Info

This is a pack of service vehicle garage doors (in game as a building), which are intended to be clipped into a larger building. My main intention for these assets, are to provide isolate islands with services required for the game to function properly. Many small islands will not have a dedicated fire, police, and clinic building, but instead would have some sort of manipal garage which might house a single fire trick, a police car, and an ambulence (for first response, but not final treatement).
Unfortunately, the game does not allow for combined service buildings (as far as I am aware), so this is the next best solution, to be used where simply hiding an dedicated building inside of another building is not possible.

These function like normal police / fire stations / clinics, and are thus compatable with the service vehicle selector.

Contents

All of the assets share the same model (8 Tris with a 2 Tri LOD), and a 256x256 Diffuse, Specular, Normal, Illumination texture. None of the assets require workers. They are all 1x1 cell assets.

  • Police Garage - 4 cars
  • Fire Garage - 1 Truck
  • EMS Garage - 2 Ambulances
  • Garbage Garage - 2 Trucks (this is based off of the incinerator plant, so it does not accumulate garbage, but it does not produce electricity, or produce polution).

For clarification, these are 4 distinct assets, they are not combined into one. One will show up in the fire station category, one in the police station category, one in the garbage collection category, and one in the medical category. Each asset only serves one function, which is why they are only the garage door (so that multiple assets can be placed along side a larger building to appear as if the building is multi-function). If that is still confusing, this item on the workshop contains 4 files in it, subscribing will download all 4 of them.

How to place

1) Place a building down that you plan on clipping the garages into.
2) Place a road along the side of the building where you want the garages to be (it can be a concrete road if you want there to be a large driveway in front of them.
3) Place the assets the same way you would normally place a police / fire station.
4) Use MoveIt to partially clip the asset into the building, to make it look like it belongs.

There are two images attached to the pack which show an example of how this can be done. Those are clipped into the Sim City 4 Local Branch Library asset here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=942075959

@Vasmir22 Nice idea! Could you make a taxi and bus version also?? :)

I can be so blind at times! I thought I read your whole description, apparently not well enough :/ Thank you once again :)

@sup thanks! They are the sim city 4 branch library building (link is in the description).
@alborzka I did think about that before, but I have a strong feeling that it wouldn't work. It may require a mod to change the asset AI at load time. Also, the props may not work in that position.

This is a good mod. Thank you for making it!

Btw: what is that brown brick building you are using in your screenshots?
alborzka Jul 18 @ 6:47am 
ahh I see, yeah true I haven't tried making mixed-use with actual service buildings so idk if that'd work. Re: info panel, I use the sub building tabs mod which adds a tab on the info panel for each sub building (super helpful in case you don't have it!) but yea that's a mod so idk. Anyway still great work as always!

(btw, irrelevant question here -- what about using helicopter template from natural disasters for making small planes? Could work for the propellers and also for sound issues? I don't have ND so idk if that would work or not tho, and idk about their landing behaviour, plus I'm sure you've already thought of that before :p)

@FAILZORD This isn't a 4 in 1 deal. It's 4 assets uploaded as one (instead of uploading them one at a time). So when you subscribe it will show up as 4 assets in the content manager, and it will show up as 4 assets in the game (one in each category). Each asset can only do one thing, hence why there are 4 of them.

I think what Kombat is trying to mean a building as a Fire responder garage and a an EMS garage. Both are seperate, they just specialise in the one item, instead of your 4 in 1 deal.

@Kombat Wombat I am a little confused as to what you are asking.... This is a pack of 4 stand alone buildings, one of which is a fire station, and another is a clinic....

Would it be possible for you to release a version of this as a dedicated Fire Station? It would also make a good ambulance garage.
