BIPIN BAT

Recommended Posts

I'll start this topic off with a "thank you". Perhaps a bit odd given it's the first post in this BAT thread, but certainly, it isn't the first one anywhere else on the web amongst my other threads. I want to say thanks for supporting me in the community; to all of you who've done so by commenting or giving encouraging/constructive feedback. As a thank you of sorts to the support members here have given me, I've got a gift just for you:

Enjoy! :)

Remember those houses from way back?

Well, those houses from way back are making a comeback!

I'll be doing them in HD since the details really come out at that level and furthermore, some major (e.g. brick and shingles) textures look to smooth and frankly, just textureless, when in SD at zoom 5.

Simlink, you can use the lotplop function and place them over lots already grown. To all, thanks for the kind words guys; you provide the fuel for the BIPIN BAT machine! Speaking of which...

Sorry for the double post:

What should we look for with the BuildingPlop cheat, or did I imagine these buildings. And I also never was able to make your previous houses work. The ZZZ_lotname files never appeared for me, just "Bipin House [Colour]" which resulted in the red cursor error. I had the mandatory dependencies and optional as well I think, I tried the files in a Bipin BAT Subfolder and in my main plugin folder to no avail... any ideas what may be up? Help is much appreciated in advance. :)

I'll try and figure this out when time permits; that's tomorrow as I must go to bed now. In the meantime, let me know how well you can grow my current houses. Just something to note; I've experienced success in growing these with around the stage in which a lot of rowhouses seem to develop. Speaking of these houses, here's a preview of what's to come:

It's a Simmania-exclusive image, so enjoy! :cool:

I haven't gotten them to grow, I don't know what lot size they are LOL. :P

That image though... it looks FANTASTIC! :D

Sorry, neglected to mention they are 1x1, but overhang towards the left (when the arrow is facing you, in that orientation).

Ooh, nice. I love zoning 1x1. :D Since they overhang should we skip every other tile then?

Either way I'll try them out later and hope they grow. :D

Yes, you should skip every other tile. :D

Okay, cool. :D I haven't gotten them to grow yet though. Maybe I need to install the maxis blocker to see if they pop up...

I believe I've figured out the issue. In the download, I neglected to add the buildings for the lots. The absence of buildings is characteristic of this kind of error. You may download the required buildings here:

That got them to grow - model looks great! But sometimes they grow on an angle, or without the house (ie just foundation... ?)

bipinhouses_zps65b69082.jpg

Will they be remaining 1x1 for final release or are you planning on making them 2x2?

I get the feeling I did something wrong...

I find it quite odd that only the foundation is showing. I've never encountered this error, nor have other testers. Regarding the odd angles, you'll just have to bulldoze and regrow to achieve the correct one. I've talked to several others on the matter and they agree. However, I've now made orthogonal houses more prevalent in the latest version:

βAT DOWNLOAD

~ The time to test is here! ~

8afcd250768ac704419f3a0892b84713385636aee8.png

This beta version of my houses provides a

chance for you; the end user, to give my

BAT's a test run independently. It also

provides me with a chance to gather data

on the BAT/lot performance in scenarios

mimicking their real use once released.

I strongly encourage you to try out this

content, for this test is integral to me

​continuing the project. If major errors

are to be found and not addressed at this

stage, some substantial time delays will

occur. No one wants that so give them a

try: http://tinyurl.com/BIPINTEST-houses

Large files, I know. However, I assure

you the download is certainly worth it!

Thanks you two for the kind words!

In other news, this should give the plaza-area of the retaining wall lots some more visual interest...
