This SC4 Devotion LEX Legacy Pack features the BSC Team and SC4D LEX Restoration Team-assembled canal and waterway uploads of multiple popular BSC BATers and their associates like: SimGooberCallagrafxNewman Inc (CityNut), Zero7 (rp2004/2005), Mattb325 and MGB204/rsc204 (with diagonal addons), which had been available on the Lot Exchange (LEX) at SC4 Devotion (and in some cases on Simtropolis STEX too).
It includes the contents of 41 previously separate downloads (including some contents that were only available on the SC4D LEX DVD and an unreleased upload from Callagrafx for his SG Remastered canal set).
After battling a number of technical issues, software incompatibility ultimately shuttered the LEX (at least in its familiar form from 2007 onward) in June 2023, and this package is designed to collect these dependencies in an easy-to-use form, allowing users to install them all in one go, or carefully select exactly which packs they wish to install.

Please note that this pack may receive updates in the near future. Do not redistribute without asking first, mostly as doing so would complicate efforts to properly maintain, update, and provide technical support for the pack.

CONTENTS:

  • SG BSC Brick Canals
  • SG Irrigation Canals 2004 - the old set
  • SG Irrigation Ditches 2009 - the new set
  • SG Urban Canals
  • CAL Remastered SG Canals
  • CAL Stone Canals
  • Newman Inc River and Pond Kit (RPK)
  • Newman Inc Agricultural Suburban Canals (ASC)
  • Zero7 Sunken Canals (addon for CAL Remastered SG Canals)

INSTALLATION:

This package utilizes a Java-based installer (similar to the one used with the Network Addon Mod), and can also be opened and installed manually using 7-Zip or Keka.

To install it, you'll either need the Java Runtime Environment to run the installer--Adoptium's open-source edition is recommended--or a zip tool capable of opening the installer to allow manual installation. For Windows/Linux, use 7-zip, and for macOS, use Keka.

Once into the installer, after agreeing to the terms for the package, click to the Files tab to select which dependencies you wish to install (making no changes here will install everything). Then, click to the Location tab to set up an installation location (this should be the root of your My DocumentsSimCity 4Plugins folder). After this, click over to the Install tab, and click "Start installation" to begin the installation procedure. When installation is complete, the tab pop up a message indicating it, after which you are safe to close the installer.

It is highly recommended to run the cleanitol with the installer and remove any previous versions from your plugins.
Optionally in the ~Documents folder in the main ZIP you can find a collective/master and separately all the individual cleanitol files and by using either the newer nos.17's SC4 Cleanitol or the older BSC Cleanitol tool you can search and remove old and outdated versions of these files.

Bear in mind that this Collection contains Prop packs only available with this upload. Those prop packs can be used and referenced by other contents may not part of this collection as dependencies. If a 3rd party upload references one of the prop packs available in this Collection, you don't need to install everything, you can select and install only the referenced prop pack. All prop packs (and the lot packs as well) have individual cleanitol files (besides the Cleanitol_MASTER REMOVE LIST_BSC Canals Collection.txt) and they have Prop Catalogue index images as a help for lotters.
