DinkUUU and DinkPop - two more 'hoods with mini lot roads

For those who need more space, variety, or extra maps for University, Downtown, or a Shopping District, I present 2 more fast loading efficiency neighborhoods that include some roads just for mini lots:

DinkUUU - looks like 3 big U's at the bottom, hence the name. Not as heavy on the mini lot roads as DinkTown was. If I remember right, I think the "town square" is a 5x5. Small town living at it's finest!

DinkPop - if you stand on your head, the 4 squares at the top look like lollipops. If that raises more questions than answers, (or if any psychiatrists are reading), just think POP for Bigger Population. :-) This map is larger than the others. Without a cheat, you can see about half of it and must scroll to see the rest. The smallest lollipop is a 5x5.

By the way, if you tilted your head to see lollipops, then salt and trans fats might be the least of your worries today. Please put your chiropractor's number on speed dial and your seat in the upright position before attempting this download. :-)

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I love your "savespace" neighborhoods. Blessed sold out of simcity4 in your marketplace!!!
Question: When a Dinkbeach? Don't take it as a request, but a suggestion.

download problem
Look nice and will be very useful for downtown/uni.
But why can I download only UUU and when I try Pop it says no cookies found??? I have cookies allowed and every other download works well (except one with the same problem). Can somebody please help me?

Two useful nbhoods, I like especially the Dinkpop, seems to be easy and funny to manage.
Thank you

You know a site allowing re-upload of free build/buy stuff in lots ? Help us to update the list !

Thank you for the link, dinkytink. Unfortunately the test-link there said there was no problem.
However, I tricked it somehow by rightclick-"save target as", start downloading the php-file, cancel that, and from then on everything's fine with this download. Tested it with every download I had this problem with and it works.
So, finally, thanks again for these nice neighbourhoods.

Beautiful! I hate it when I place small lots in a normal neighbourhood and have to fill up the gaps with trees and such . . . you are WONDERFUL!
