The only way to have only SimMars buildings in your city is to remove any other grownable building. Not recommend, unless you like a lot of repetition. You guess right, you can have the SimMars buildings without preventing any other building to appear :)

Cool.  I will be installing this shortly, as soon as I get around to installing all the other lots I have downloaded recently  lol

EDIT: I installed it and have been playing it.  Great job on getting the buildings and stuff into a regular game, its nice seeing different buildings(I seriously love those martian graveyards  lol) popping up, some from Earth and some from Mars.

Glad to see that you like it :) . Sonn I'll upload the upgrading version that fix all liitle problems, makes all lots more interesting and add some extra props to make the buildings more realistic. It's now in testing mode.

New friends for my park collection. Thanks to B.S.C. team, we can fill the empty space of magnetic railroads with something nice :thumbsup:
This is my version. I quess I need to remove some trees that I placed under the railroad :D

This is a basic idea about a new set of lots, a building surrounding by water.



And this is the basic plan



I have all the props I need. However I would like you to suggest me the best props to make the ponds :)

Wow, it's been too long since I visited!

The memories of the colonists set really turned out well  &apls  I especially like the way the simmars farm lots turned out. I also had fun looking through your link to the list of futuristic plugins on SC4D.

As far as your new lot goes, I can't really say--most of my work in LE is pretty basic.

It's because my goal is to mix futurism with naturalism. Something like this...

I should definitely do my own version of your mod. :D

Very ambitious project and inspiring at the same time. ;)

I can see myself using some of those RIMP relots if those are released.  Great work! :)

The new version of Memories of the Colonists will be released soon. Now I tried to relot the large spaceport again. This time the result is a bit better than the last one. No windmills, more props available, but still not complete. This is how it should look...



... and this is the result. I replaced the parking lots with underground entrances, reduced the number of props and add parked automata airplanes. However there are still missing props (not too much anymore) and textures.











Why however there are still missing props?

Thanks to the help of the folks in SimPeg.com, the spaceport is finally ready for action :)

What happened? There is a limit in the props number. While in L.E. you can still add props even after you've hit the limit, save the lot and exit without getting any error, the L.E. will remove the last added props that were above the limit. So if after exiting L.E. you decide to restart it and reopen the lot, you would find the lot in L.E. with missing props. According to Paeng, 256 props is the maximum number that a lot can hold. Having this in my mind, I make some changes in the spaceport.



The original version had 44 small solar panels. I remove them, as well as some props.



I also add a parked airplane.



The X-48B by srainy or Martian Spaceport Ship by LVK_ST however are highly recommend.



One of the missing props, the airplanes effect, is finally here.



Sims are back too.



Almost all air terminals, maintenance facilities, service centres and hotels are now constructed underground.



A nice effect for my antennas.



There are still some missing effects. 2 flora-type trees and 3 timed props are missing, but I can fix it.



The final result!! &dance &dance

Glad that you were able to figure out your prop problems--they spaceport turned out quite nice  :thumbsup:

My attention is focused on the RMIP being re-lotted into a spaceport. Just stunning!  :o

I wouldn't mind seeing a starport done in parts, without a runway at all (I can add that using the RIMP system).

Basically if there were main terminal lots and maintainence lots...

Just a thought though, your work is looking good as is.
