Welcome everyone to SimCity4 Devotion December event, the Advent Calendar!
As you may very well know, December is month of festivity, presents and reunions, it has been a tradition for many people around the earth for so many centuries now.
Well SC4D isn't an exception. This year we decided to unite our works and produce one magnificent month full of presents for the community.

We will be uploading one or two files daily until the 25th December. This first post will serve as a glossary of the month's upload.

We hope you'll enjoy the presents during the month as much as we liked preparing them. :)

Props & Texture Catalog


As one of the many offshoots of our Historic Harbor project Krashspeed made me some monks for a planned Historic Monastery set. Unfortunately he has been MIA for more than a year now, however, as a fitting opener of our SC4D advent calender I'm pleased to present you Krashspeed's excellent work!

For convenience I've broken it down into 4 different MMPs.  Well, 5 actually because I've separated the orthogonal and diagonal seasonal vines.  :D

In addition the download contains LE props as well, including timed seasonal vines so you can use them on your lots. Enjoy!

It has been a while since the community saw a SimCity 4 advent calendar, but this year, we're happy to continue this nice tradition. The SFBT has been digging in its archives and dusted off a few goodies that haven't seen the light since a while, and some other contributions have been created since then.

Let me announce our first upload of the calendar, the SFBT Hofmarschallhaus by peterycristi, put on an outer corner lot that features a special pavement prop by N1_2888. Please update your copy of the SFBT Essentials as well, as we updated a few items, and fixed some bugs from the previous release.



Thanks guys for these awesome uploads  &apls  It's a fantastic thing to see this Advent Calendar finally become a reality  :bnn:


For this second day of December, I am glad to introduce a new pack of flowers: daisy

Beautiful flowers! 'Spose an Advent Calendar wouldn't really be complete without some Girafe-quality flora ;)


Wonderful new additions from all but my favourite so far are the Daisies  &apls

Thanks for all the nice words, much appreciated! :) December 3rd brings you yet another W2W building from Berlin, the Palais Borsig by peterycristi, also modded by N1_2888 as a landmark.



Oh yeah!

More Berlin buildings please  ()stsfd()


Wonderfully detailed model. Thanks. :)

Love these, thanks to all of wonderfully talented creators, can't wait to see the rest!

Happy Holidays,



Today's upload is a quite interesting building, the Bauakademie by peterycristi. As one of the many examples of Karl Friedrich Schinkel's designs, it has been a staple in the center of Berlin for decades, before it burned down in WWII.

There are plans for an original reconstruction, and one corner was actually recreated in 2002. Then a giant scaffolding was erected that shows the original size and volume of the original building, printed on a giant canvas, which looks almost photorealistic.

Sadly, peterycristi didn't create any nightlighting for the building, but it surely looks way too nice to omit it from releasing. :)



One, two, three, four.. gimme more, gimme more!  :bnn:
Great BATs!


Since I never play with nightlighting anyways, this is perfect. Great upload for the advent.


....Uploading the MFP 1.... (.........Finishing the MFP1)


Yeah I don't mind the lack of nightlight either, fantastic building!!  &apls

I'd assume the SC4D Advent Calendar Group is only available for the person who created it, since I can't pick that one either...

Anyway, let me continue with our little Berlin special; peterycristi created yet another landmark from the German capital, the Bismarck National Memorial, which once was located in front of the Reichstag building, and was relocated to the Großer Stern right in the middle of the Tiergarten, together with the Siegessäule.
