rivit's mods & automata: 14 lots, generating 4,144 downloads..


Ron, better known as rivit, has been creating superb lots and automata for some time now.

Recently he focused his attention on railroad tracks, and thus rid the game of an old eye-sore: mixed & unmatched rail tracks.

Faded Catenary Mod by Rivit

This mod is a texture only override of the well known and frequently used Rail Catenaries by plundere Installing this modd will tone town the optical effect of the original NL catenaries (by ehbk2006) becoming disproportionally dominant (bright) in a scene, particularly at far zooms. Everything else is unchanged.

RVT SAM5 Rural Tarsealed Streets by Rivit


Added on 17 April 2012, downloaded 101 times..

This set overrides the SAM5 - Trolca Dirt Textures. It is based on the type of tarsealed streets found throughout Australia and NZ. These streets are a redesign and new implementation of the streets I first made in 2005. This set is for outside the city or in the poorer fringe suburban areas - they will never get kerbs or footpaths.

RVT SAM2 Red Herringbone Brick Streets by Rivit


Added on 11 April 2012, downloaded 69 times..

SAM2 Override - RedHerringboneBrick:
This is my SAM2 implementation of the streets I first made in 2005, and is a by-product of learning how to make my other street sets.
 
Particular care has been taken to account for how bricks are actually laid for tidy curves, intersections and joins and use my original textures.

RVT SAM4 NZ Gravel Streets by Rivit


Added on 11 April 2012, downloaded 336 times..

This set overrides the SAM4 - PEG Gravel Textures. It is based on the type of gravel roads found throughout NZ and parts of Australia. These roads consist of an earth base, with 1-3cm bluestone gravel graded onto the surface. Relatively cheap to build and maintain they can represent a substantial challenge to inexperienced drivers. Rally driving on the other hand is a great deal of fun.

RVT Haagse PCC Tram by Rivit


Added on 11 April 2012, downloaded 85 times..

While I was living in Den Haag (The Hague, The Netherlands) during the 80s this dainty PCC tram was by far my preferred form of transport. The Tram was usually used in control/trailer pairs. Because of the many narrow streets it was a deliberately small version of the generic American PCC design. They were decommissioned around '94.
 
The plugin contains two options: single controller tram, or controller tram and wagon. Night lighting for all carriages and correct NAM UDI exemplar are included.

Rivit's Tunnel Mod v1 by rivit


Added on 05 November 2011, downloaded 710 times..

The SC4 Tunnels have seen little renovation since their first release. This package contains replacement models for all of the standard tunnels, and new tunnels which extend or change default functionality. All tunnels are presented as deliberately minimal tunnel portals so that they can be easily covered by overhanging lots.

Rivit's Tar-sealed Street Mod by rivit


Added on 14 April 2011, downloaded 361 times..

Applying these files will completely suppress the MAXIS street look (everywhere, instantly). Its intended that way. This mod radically alters the bland Maxis streets, covering them with realistic surfaces found the world over.

Version3: added the DB Class E40 Electric Loco (Freight Green) to Freight Trains The MAXIS engine is now fully suppressed by the DB041 in Freight Trains; V200 Diesel added along with Express Carriages. The entire setup is now user selectable (and therefore more complicated for some) Props for all of my added content are now available in the files (thanks to Nardo69 for the request) All models and textures have been renumbered into my Texture Range F5E80050-F5E80070

Rivit's Coastal Mod by rivit


Added on 13 April 2011, downloaded 443 times..

Bring a new life to your coastal areas with these innovative foreshore, inshore and offshore textures. The sea is rippled at all scales (a light breeze), cleanly tiles, and gives new realism to the surf, whitecaps and boats in the game. The colours are based on mods previously done and so should meet most requirements, but keep in mind that your monitor affects the colours you see.

Railroad Upgrade Mod by rivit


Added on 13 April 2011, downloaded 701 times..

Applying this mod will change every rail tile (up to and including NAM Aug 2010) to a single look and feel. It is inevitable that this may not appeal to some, however rail aficionados everywhere will welcome this upgrade as the means by which the game's rail network comes to look as consistent as the other networks.
