I managed to load one of the buildings, but I can't find " A Small Commercial Building", does it have a different name and in which section would it be?

It should just be "Small Commercial Building", but if you don't have the newest Koreal Building text.xml it could show up as just a blank.

I've been trying out making a new Specialist Sim, but am a bit perplexed on the process.

In any case, I'll put out a simple retexture soon before I release that one. :)

Letting anyone who still visits here (including the tumbleweeds) know that I'm still working on this project. Just been sidetracked by so many real life things.

Better throw in a few artillery pieces in that mod. ;)

Yeah, I know. Even I, the one who used to check-in here every other day, have been caught up in real-life secenarios. It's good to know that you are still working on the project, though. (My projects seem to be like rocks, building up in my "Documents" folder, just because I can't figure out how to make a SCS pack. :( )

Making an SCS Pack is easy. It's just annoying and time-consuming.

I'm also still here, haven't played in awhile either, am playing Mafia Wars.

But I am still looking forward to getting the new goodies. Will check in again in two months... am going on holiday. :)

Wishing everybody all the best.

I've been thinking of altering the game system a bit to better emulate the gradual evolution of a city. Rather than be able to build things like the Modelling Agency or Office Building right away, you'd be restricted to building only small businesses and venues; bigger stuff would have steeper demands. Also maybe decorations wouldn't produce any social energies but instead only have the ability to improve appeal or happiness of nearby venues.

Great idea :D

The first building in the Small Businesses pack that I'm making - the corner bakery.

Been a very long while since I've updated anything, but if there's anyone still playing SCS out there, I am slowly getting back into the habit of modding (mostly since I haven't bought any new PC game for nearly a year ;) ) and have been retexturing new Korean-themed housing. Also been thinking a bit more about reworking the Social Energies system. I think decorations should generally not produce energies and instead consume them; it should be infrastructure or public buildings that produce social energies instead.

I have not played in over 8 months I think. Am too busy playing Mafia Wars and CityVille in Facebook, I would like to get back to it though one day. I have almost forgotten how it works. :(

Still playing here, but rarely. I am too busy playing Minecraft. I tried to make the game so that the original SCS title music would play when you launch Destinations by converting and renaming the file, but I failed terribly. :o I like your idea on reworking the social energy system, it makes a lot more sense that way.

I'm hoping the upload feature will be reactivated soon. I could use Megauploads, but it's just easier directly posting stuff here. :)

Some thoughts on the "Social Energies" system (if anyone is at all interested in SCS modding anymore :o ).

Rather than a "Social Energies" system, for the purpose of the SCS: Korea mod, they "energies" would simply be resources and thus the way they function in city-building would be as follows:

Productivity: produced by farms and infrastructure (sanitation and water buildings); consumed by factories, low-level commercial buildings, and homes
Wealth: produced by office buildings and financial institutions; consumed by homes and services
Knowledge: produced by educational and research institutions; consumed by high-level factories and commercial buildings and city services
Creativity: produced by public parks, landscaping, and arts schools; consumed by certain businesses (particularly tourism), services, and decorations
Spirituality: produced by landscaping, monasteries, and certain housing types; consumed by spiritual service facilities

All homes require at least one point of Productivity to represent their need for basic utilities. Creativity and Spiritual buildings fundamentally are not at all necessary for a city to succeed, but they improve overall quality of life in the city or can give long-term financial benefits.

Also, there would be a Public vs. Private sector consideration. For example, public services would cost the city more but have a higher capacity (at the cost of slightly lower quality service) while private services cost less but have a lower capacity.

For anyone who still cares to lurk around here: I'll be releasing a new housing pack soon. Along with three new house textures, I'll also include the Small Apartments and Korean Traditional House pack consolidated into one pack. :)
