This SC4 Devotion LEX Legacy Pack features all twelve releases by legendary BATer Reddonquixote, which had been available on the Lot Exchange (LEX) at SC4 Devotion. It includes the contents of 12 previously separate downloads. 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.

There are two versions of this package that exist as separate downloads. One (MN) is for Maxis Nite (the default night settings), while the other (DN) is for Dark Nite, and is optimized for use with darker Night Mods, such as the mods by SimFox and gizmo28.

Some of the Lots in here come with additional Ploppable options, or are Ploppable Only. Ploppable Only Lots are noted as "(Ploppable)" in the installer, and those with options will have the Ploppable option deselectable at a sublevel (click "+" to expand and deselect the Ploppable verison if you do not wish to install it).

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.

In the installer you will see two RDQ Props folders (one in the middle one at the bottom of the list). The one at the bottom of the list is non-deselectable as those models are essentials for the CAM lots and their ploppable versions. IF you don't want any of the models because you did not installed the lot versions either, go to the RDQ Props folder and from DN/MN Models folder (depending on which version you installed) delete the unwanted models.
The one in the middle has selecatble options for the RDQ's HD Prop Pack. 

Extra feature, if you hover over the folders in the installer, you will get some extra information about each contents.

 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 files you wish to install (making no changes here will install everything). To expand options, click the small "+" next to the name of the section.

Then, click to the Location tab to set up an installation location (this should be the root of your My DocumentsSimCity 4Plugins folder). On the Cleanup tab, click "Start scan" to find any outdated files that currently reside in your Plugins folder that may conflict with this package. Clicking "Backup" will remove these old files to a safe location. (The option to "Delete" them also exists, but is not recommended.) 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.

 Dependencies

The following files are required in order for the contents of this package to appear correctly (i.e., no "brown boxes" or missing textures). There are no Prop dependencies, although the Dark Nite version requires Simfox Day 'n' Nite Modd and for the CAM lots you need the Colossus Addon Mod otherwise those lots will not grow.
