Could someone please email me the Blank Lots Cleanitol list? I'm not able to access attachments at the moment, and I need to check my plugins for them.

Check your inbox! :thumbsup:
However, I cannot see any reason why you wouldn't be able to access attachments... &mmm


Also, Pegasus' Seasonal Lot does grow a blank lot, but only if CAM is installed as the lot's default Growth Stage is set outside the vanilla range. I've modified the growth stage (set it to 255) and added the properties outlined in the tutorial, I just need to check and see if it still grows BLs.

Interesting... would you have a link to that lot?

Ah...until recently I was part of the "...watch out!" group and couldn't access attachments. I just today, within the last 10 minutes, noticed that I had all my usual privileges back.

Thanks for emailing me that, Tage.

Let's see...a link to the Seasonal Lot? Let me check the STEX...

EDIT: Here it is: PEG Seasonal Lot.

The seasonal lot does indeed grow on empty lots due to its Parent Cohort.
It's been added to the CS$$ list. ;)

It grows regardless of CAM though, since, due to its Parent Cohort, it belongs to one of Maxis' CS$$ families.
The growth stage of the functional landmark lot itself wouldn't cause it to grow though.

Righto. So...fixing it should be a simple as following your tutorial, yes? I haven't had the chance to test it yet, there's this annoying thing called "Real Life" that keeps intruding.

Though I have to admit, having a girlfriend in "Real Life" does make it more attractive.

Thanks to a PM from zanardi66 I've been able to add 9 petroleum lots made by disk_error back in August 2003.
They all grow as empty I-D lots:

  • petrol2x_2c4fa7e8.SC4Lot
  • petrol3x_ac4f0a63.SC4Lot
  • petrolparkdock_ac556fc6.SC4Lot
  • petrolpump_ec5259b3.SC4Lot
  • petrolrefine_0c4efa69.SC4Lot
  • petrolseperat2_2c4f9c53.SC4Lot
  • petrolseperat_2c4f5aed.SC4Lot
  • petrolshed_ac4f5b5b.SC4Lot
  • petroltanks_6c543f66.SC4Lot


I also happened myself to come across the first lot uploaded by citynut.
It grows empty as a CO§§§ with 1455 jobs:

  • Newman Inc Lowes Foods_8d8892b0.SC4Lot

However, this lot has already been updated and reuploaded on the LEX. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the list RippleJet. Found out I had a few of those lots in my cities already.

    VS   

It seems like with every internet search to download files, there are more files to add to the ever-expanding list.

But what if there were a way to block the Empty Lots from growing, while maintaining the functionality of the functional landmarks? There just may be.

I'm currently looking for a handful of people that either have kept known Empty RCI Lots in their Plugins, or don't mind hunting some down, willing to help me test a file to block the Blank RCI's once and for all. Anyone interested can just drop me a PM, please specify whether you're using CAM or not, so I can keep track.

12. Ploppable CS$ with jobs, that might grow on empty lots (M-Z)

The Building Exemplar Name is what you will see when querying an empty lot. The number of jobs are included to help your identification. If the file has already been corrected and uploaded, I recommend redownloading it through the link given.

Holy necropost, Batman.

LOL yes, that is ME!  I remember many of the lots on the list from Bobbo!  The Zayre and Walmart bldgs.  I've tested some of his bldgs. in my city and sent pics and documentation over to Bobbo so he could get some 1 on 1 feedback. then he'd upload. his work was classic and professional.  I wonder why they are missing? wouldn't the owner do the removals or do you think new server upgrades etc, could have lost a lot of these?

Larus Plaza is growing on an empty lot. Can I just bulldoze the lot in my city and remove all the files from the plugins folder? I don't really care if I don't have it, its better to have something else being constructed over these empty lots...
