Here you will find any updates, fixes and supplemental works on lots, texture packs and or prop packs.

As you all know, I now have accumulated quite the collection of prop packs (11 so far) and I think it is about time to start packing them in Megapacks for the sake of eliminating the higher count and also to make it easier to anyone who wishes to use them in order to create new lots.

Therefore I will start the process as soon as I can. Due to the high number of uploads, this process may take a while.

PS I have enough models made to make another 2 packs thus the urgency to make Megapacks a reality.

Wow Nick!

That's great! I sent a PM over at Simtropolis, it has a little connection to this project of yours. :)
Congrats for your MOD status! :)

Great news, that was something I was almost about to suggest about all your prop-packs, that can even be discouraging for some people downloading your lots - planning prop packs can be quite tricky, though, but that's good that some simplier arrangement comes afterward anyway  ;D

SM2 Mega Prop Pack Vol1 is a compendium of 670 models I created over the years. It replaces many files and eliminates the need to have many dependencies.
Please use the included cleanitol text file. It is very important to do so as to avoid redundant and unnecessary files taking up space in your pluging.

Many lots are being updated to point to this file.
Besides the usage of the cleanitol files no further action is required.

Just plop this in your plugin, fire up  BSC Cleanitol http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=97 and process the included cleanitol txt file.

Thank you

As of tonight, almost all my file have been updated to the new folder structure which will make things simpler and are much better organized for plugins.

Also, the first 10 prop packs are now locked forever because they have been superseded by SM2 Mega Prop Pack Vol1 The Mega Pack also includes various models I had uploaded with some of my lots therefore making the Mega Pack all inclusive. New lot makers will have far less dependencies to list and chase down.

Big thank you goes to Tyberius06 for creating the new folder format and of course for helping me organize the huge number of files I had outputted in previous years.

Only a few lots remain untouched, this is because they depend on SM2 Prop Pack Vol11 but not for long....

SM2 Mega Prop Pack Vol2 is almost done and it will include SM2 Prop Pack Vol11 along with another massive collection of unreleased props and building models.
This Mega Pack will be even bigger, topping the scale at a whopping  68Mb

Here is the second Mega Pack icon ready to be placed in the new Mega Pack home page.

Oh!
Thanks for K point. I really appreciate it!
Also thank you for making these awesome props and prop packs.
I can't wait the next volume and its beautiful contents. 68Mb? It sounds like a monster. ;)

Maybe add a SM2 to the thread name so it becomes SM2 Announcements (changing the name of a thread is done in the first post of it)

It depends where you reply to the thread. If you select a previous post that doesn't have the topic changed and click "reply", it uses that one, but if you use the quick reply box, it picks the topic of the first posting. :) In the old days, it was popular to structure forums (and other discussion groups) with a tree structure, so you could change the topic of a posting to create a new "branch" (say, if some discussion went a bit off-topic), but people could still reply to the main posting of the tree and keep that topic in another branch.

Hello everyone.

I'm sure you all have noticed that the last few zips I uploaded contain models and props and there is a reason for that.

My last mega pack took months to assemble therefore I had to delay a lot of uploads making it really hard to release the whole backlog.

So I have decided to upload any new work that features new props with the models included and then once I reach a certain number of MB I will create SM2 Mega Prop Pack Vol3 with a Cleanitol file to gather the scattered bits.

Thank you
