Japan Residential Buildings Pack #2 - v2.4.5 ( New June 2024 update )

Here is my new plugin : the new Japan Residential Building Pack ! This pack contains 160+ Japanese-themed residential buildings for your city , from old historic houses to suburban homes , apartement complexes , low - rise buildings , and large-scale apartement towers !

--- A few words about this pack ---

This pack started as a basic update of my previous one , but because of the difference of quality i decided to keep them separate .

This project started around 4 years ago , after i made a few buildings . I worked on most of the buildings during the 1st French lockdown ( around March-May 2020 ).

As you might know , the original Japan pack was my first big plugin which made me part of the TT communauty , so I pretty much consider this pack as a tribute to the original .
The original pack can be found here : viewtopic.php?t=7940
( warning , the graphics are quite bad , since its old )

As said previously , the original idea was to make only Tokyo buildings , but eventually I added buildings from other areas , like Toyama , Nagoya , Fukuoka , Osaka , Kobe , and much more . The aim of this project is to make a variety of buildings inspired by Japan's architecture style , from historic wooden houses to state - of - the - art modern apartement buildings ! Around 95 % of the buildings are inspired by real life buildings will the last 5 % are either inspired by AI - generated images or coming from animes .

I was inspired to revive this project a few months ago after playing TheoTown again and using the NYC / North American pack , which has its own zone ( really recommend it ! ) . It made me want to make my own zone and that's how I got back into ' plugin business ' !

The reason I took so much time before releasing this new update was that I wasn't satisfied enough with the progress to publish it . But thanks to the fellow communauty of the Citadel Discord Server for their continued support and feedback I'm very happy to present this new update for you to enjoy !

This new update ( 2.4.5 ) adds around 60 buildings I made during the last four months and mainly focuses on 1x1 and 2x2 houses , some small 1x1 apartement buildings , and a few large apartement buildings . It also goes with its own custom zone . It's not perfect yet , but hey , that's a start !
I also made a few mirrored versions for a bunch of buildings along with implementing animations for the apartement towers and some buildings .

Here are some pics made by fellow city creators from the Citadel server using some of the buildings from this pack to showcase the possibilities of this new pack !

Big thanks to them !


Keep in mind that this pack is still work - in - progress , so I'm still working on improving it , like adding more buildings , animations , etc !

Hope you will enjoy the pack !

Link : viewtopic.php?t=25325

If you used the old versions of the pack , please remove the old version from your plugin folder and replace it with the new JPpack2-4-5-2024.zip if you don't want to have issues when launching the game ( aka id already in use ) .

With that , have fun !

Damn, that's really impressive!! I really like your showcase pics too. Furthermore, you know the ships in the dock yard, are they décor or actually move around

I think the showcase pic is ok , but i think other people might do even better !

The large container ship and the large cruise ship are unreleased plugins i made ( the cruise ship is quite old and would need a refresh ) . They are only deco puzzle pieces , and don't move .
