    Update February 2016 - PLEASE READ INSTALLATION NOTES.

    UEPII.jpg UEPII_Night.jpg
    Gateway Arch is included but not shown in the pictures.

    Change log 1.2:
    Class files from Mr.X²'s no collision box fix were added to this patch to prevent crashes when Mr.X2_UrbanEmbellishmentPackII-NoCollisionAddon_V1.0.patch is deleted from the mods folder.

    Thanks to Mr X² for providing them.

    Change log:
    • Fully working with XL and XXL
    • Animated fountains with water particles.
    • All items merged into a single object with lods, now you'll see the whole object while placing it. Technically they should perform better.
    • Collision box removed. Place on flat terrain!
    • New rendered nightlights for most of them.
    • New menu location Decoration/Landmark (same as UEP III)

    Installation notes:
    Delete the UEP II patches from your mods folder (10 patch files).
    Delete Urban Embellishment Pack II - No Collision Addon 1.0
    by Mr.X² from your mods folder if you have it installed, it's these have no collision and both mods are incompatible.

    You don't have to delete the old ones from your city before updating, after placing the new patch file your city should load normally and the updated models will appear instead.

    Read first:
    1. You must install the prerequisite mods before intalling this mod.
    2. Always level the terrain before placing the non-square based items.
    3. Usually the statues and other monuments are divided in base (building) and sculpture (furniture), so part of the monument will not appear until the game loads the furnitures.
    4. There are no huge texture maps or astronomical polycount on these objects, but if you play with low setting or on a low end machine don't get crazy placing hundreds of them al over the map. The polycount and texture maps are reasonable to give a nice detail level without affecting performance.
    5. These object have a limited park effect depending on their size and characteristics.
    6. You can find them in the decorations menu.

    Special thanks to: lmiguel, for testing the mods, Banib3, Nicko2u, Alex24, and others for support and suggestions.
    Very special thanks to Altiris, for helping me, sharing his knowledge and custom shaders to make things work [​IMG]

    Totally Awesome! I just dropped these into a city to test them out and they look gorgeous, especially at night. The Gateway Arch is most impressive. These are going to be featured in an upcoming video!

    "You don't have to delete the old ones" - LIES. FAILS TO WORK.
    The game itself - until loading the city (I had Gloria Victis from the old mod) - works fine. Then hangs.
    Users of 2012, please, check it out very, very carefully.
