SC4D LEX Legacy - Mozukuss Dependency Pac SC4D LEX Legacy - Mozukuss Dependency Pack V1

This SC4 Devotion LEX Legacy Pack features the BSC Team and SC4D LEX Restoration Team-assembled prop packs of popular Japanese BATer Mozukuss, which had been available on the Lot Exchange (LEX) at SC4 Devotion. This compilation also contains most (if not all) of the models that Mozukuss ever released on their websites over the years. 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 is expected to 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.

 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). On the Cleanup tab, click "Start scan" to find any outdated files that currently reside in your Plugins folder that may conflict with this package.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.

** Though there is an inbuilt cleanitol function in the installer, at this point it is not working entirely properly so it is highly recommended to run the individual cleanitol files or the master cleanitol for the compilation with one of the following 3rd party cleanitol tools:

 Contents

This package contains the following Dependency Packs*:

*the formerly available Mozukuss Mega Pack vol01 and vol02 and vol03 have been reworked and repurposed. There is a list below, that details which buildings have been compiled into each new prop packs. 

MEGA Prop Packs

    1. Mozukuss Mega Pack Vol01 v2
      • Shiodome Dentsu HQ v1 - it was formerly available on Mozukuss' website for a short time and it was also compiled into the Mozukuss MEGA Props vol01 for an SC4D LEX release. Due to its size the model was cut into two halves. However apparently a few weeks later (and a few days after the release of the Mozukuss Mega Props vol01) a new render was made with one standalone model and since then this second version is the only available version on Mozukuss' website.
      • Shiodome Dentsu HQ v2 - the same building, but the former two halves rendered and exported together as one. This is a new addition to the Mega Pack vol01 v2. Both the v1 and the v2 models are diagonals. 
      • Shiodome Dentsu Light - the orthogonal and slightly modified version of the Dentsu HQ building. This is a new addition to the Mega Pack vol01 v2.
    2. Mozukuss Mega Pack Vol02 v2
      • Sunshine 60 - this was formerly available in the Mozukuss MEGA Props vol01. This is a new addition to the Mega Pack vol02 v2.

      • The One (Animated Elevator) - it features elevator movement animation.  This is a new addition to the Mega Pack vol02 v2.
