Phew, finally... it takes as long to write the report as it takes to make the testing... (and I haven't even said anything about today's tests on farming yet) :buck2:
First of all, I would like to remind you that there are a number of potential conflicts with existing mods; eg. Steph's Tileset mod under development, but also all existing mods that change the RCI development exemplars, such as any anti-dilapidation mod.
Second round of testing
This testing was done yesterday on the same map as before:
Three developer types were tested, ID, CS$ and R$, all including stages 1-15.
I made the following changes to the ID RCI Exemplar (IID=0x00004100):
Stage Count = 0x0F Stage 1 vs. Size = 0,100,500,50,1000,33,1500,25,2000,20,2500,16,3000,14,3500,12,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,7,6500,7,7000,6 Stage 2 vs. Size = 499,0,500,50,1000,33,1500,25,2000,20,2500,16,3000,14,3500,12,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,7,6500,7,7000,6 Stage 3 vs. Size = 999,0,1000,34,1500,25,2000,20,2500,17,3000,14,3500,12,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,7,6500,7,7000,6 Stage 4 vs. Size = 1499,0,1500,25,2000,20,2500,17,3000,14,3500,12,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,7,6500,7,7000,6 Stage 5 vs. Size = 1999,0,2000,20,2500,17,3000,14,3500,13,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 6 vs. Size = 2499,0,2500,17,3000,15,3500,13,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 7 vs. Size = 2999,0,3000,15,3500,13,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 8 vs. Size = 3499,0,3500,13,4000,11,4500,10,5000,9,5500,8,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 9 vs. Size = 3999,0,4000,12,4500,10,5000,9,5500,9,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 10 vs. Size = 4499,0,4500,10,5000,9,5500,9,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 11 vs. Size = 4999,0,5000,10,5500,9,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 12 vs. Size = 5499,0,5500,9,6000,8,6500,7,7000,7 Stage 13 vs. Size = 5999,0,6000,8,6500,8,7000,7 Stage 14 vs. Size = 6499,0,6500,8,7000,7 Stage 15 vs. Size = 6999,0,7000,7 Fire Coverage Cap = 0x0A
I made 15 ID lots, all sized 2x2 tiles, with the job count (through the stages) being: 40,50,60,70,80,90,100,110,120,130,140,150,160,170,180
The two pics below show the industrial district. Al might be interested in knowing that all these ID lots have Occupancy Group Industrial: Anchor (thus, they won't develop next to each other).
The development has been going on for some time, so that all lots have redeveloped (upgraded) several times.
The influence of the property Fire Coverage Cap = 10 can also be seen. Outside of the fire station (seen on the far right) coverage area, no lots develop past stage 10.
Commercial Service CS$
I made the following changes to the CS$ RCI Exemplar (IID=0x00003110):
Stage Count = 0x0F Stage 1 vs. Size = 0,100,100,50,200,33,300,25,400,20,500,16,600,14,700,12,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,7,1300,7,1400,6 Stage 2 vs. Size = 99,0,100,50,200,33,300,25,400,20,500,16,600,14,700,12,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,7,1300,7,1400,6 Stage 3 vs. Size = 199,0,200,34,300,25,400,20,500,17,600,14,700,12,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,7,1300,7,1400,6 Stage 4 vs. Size = 299,0,300,25,400,20,500,17,600,14,700,12,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,7,1300,7,1400,6 Stage 5 vs. Size = 399,0,400,20,500,17,600,14,700,13,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 6 vs. Size = 499,0,500,17,600,15,700,13,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 7 vs. Size = 599,0,600,15,700,13,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 8 vs. Size = 699,0,700,13,800,11,900,10,1000,9,1100,8,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 9 vs. Size = 799,0,800,12,900,10,1000,9,1100,9,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 10 vs. Size = 899,0,900,10,1000,9,1100,9,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 11 vs. Size = 999,0,1000,10,1100,9,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 12 vs. Size = 1999,0,1100,9,1200,8,1300,7,1400,7 Stage 13 vs. Size = 1199,0,1200,8,1300,8,1400,7 Stage 14 vs. Size = 1299,0,1300,8,1400,7 Stage 15 vs. Size = 1399,0,1400,7
I made the 15 CS$ lots, all sized 2x2 tiles, with the job count (through the stages) being: 20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100,110,120,130,140,150,160
The picture below shows the result after all lots have been developed. Several lots have also redeveloped into higher stages:
The distribution of CS$ lots at this stage was:
- 4 lots of Stage 1
- 1 lot of Stage 2
- 7 lots of Stage 3
- 5 lots of Stage 4
- 3 lots of Stage 5
- 28 lots of Stage 6
- 17 lots of Stage 7
- 15 lots of Stage 8
- 14 lots of Stage 9
- 6 lots of Stage 10
- 4 lots of Stage 11
- 3 lots of Stage 12
- 5 lots of Stage 13
- 2 lots of Stage 14
- 1 lot of Stage 15
The Residential R$ RCI Exemplar (IID=0x00001010) is similar to the one in the first post above, with only one exception, the Park Cap:
Stage Count = 0x0F Stage 1 vs. Size = 0,100,1000,50,2000,33,3000,25,4000,20,5000,16,6000,14,7000,12,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,7,13000,7,14000,6 Stage 2 vs. Size = 999,0,1000,50,2000,33,3000,25,4000,20,5000,16,6000,14,7000,12,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,7,13000,7,14000,6 Stage 3 vs. Size = 1999,0,2000,34,3000,25,4000,20,5000,17,6000,14,7000,12,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,7,13000,7,14000,6 Stage 4 vs. Size = 2999,0,3000,25,4000,20,5000,17,6000,14,7000,12,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,7,13000,7,14000,6 Stage 5 vs. Size = 3999,0,4000,20,5000,17,6000,14,7000,13,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 6 vs. Size = 4999,0,5000,17,6000,15,7000,13,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 7 vs. Size = 5999,0,6000,15,7000,13,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 8 vs. Size = 6999,0,7000,13,8000,11,9000,10,10000,9,11000,8,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 9 vs. Size = 7999,0,8000,12,9000,10,10000,9,11000,9,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 10 vs. Size = 8999,0,9000,10,10000,9,11000,9,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 11 vs. Size = 9999,0,10000,10,11000,9,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 12 vs. Size = 10999,0,11000,9,12000,8,13000,7,14000,7 Stage 13 vs. Size = 11999,0,12000,8,13000,8,14000,7 Stage 14 vs. Size = 12999,0,13000,8,14000,7 Stage 15 vs. Size = 13999,0,14000,7 Park Cap = 0x0A
The 15 R$ 2x2 lots were now set up with a population increasing through the stages: 60,70,80,90,100,110,120,130,140,150,160,170,180,190,200
The two pictures below show the residential area after years of development and redevelopment (some lots to the far right are still being redeveloped):
In those pictures you can also see the effect of the Park Cap = 10. The lot furthest away from the parks, being above stage 10, is the Stage 12 lot to the upper left from the hospital. That one is about 20 tiles away from the nearest park. Further to the left of that one only lots of Stage 10 or lower have developed. A separate test I made also showed that any "park" will do (plazas and sports fields as well).
