Museum [Offline Only]

About This File

Loosely based on the appearance of the Old Patent Office Building in Washington DC, the Museum is a brand-new building with (for the first time) some brand-new behaviors. Basically, it's a landmark-meets-library - apart from attracting tourists that shovel out cash in the gift shop, it also lures in your local populace who might learn something from the experience. Given enough tourists, your sims' education will literally pay for itself.

 

It can be found under the education menu.

 

Special thanks to MaxisGuillaume for the idea and some guidance.

A city without a museum is a city without a soul. Oppie's elegant museum mod, created in the neoclassical style, fills in a big gap. It beautifully matches the aesthetics of the older buildings like the City Hall as well as other landmarks, and looks impressive even on mid-range graphics settings. An absolute must for your city, especially if your focus is on arts/culture/education.

    • I haven't compared this to the real-life version, so I cannot comment on how faithfully you recreated it, but since I have no particular connection to that building anyway, this aspect doesn't matter to me personally. What matters more to me is that this looks like a great BAT of a tower that is both rather generic and can pop up two or three times in a big city's skyline without standing out too obviously (provided you have enough other skyscrapers, with some iconic buildings to draw most of the attention) and also pretty interesting once you zoom in and take a closer look. That base makes it more than just your average black/brown/beige/grey box with window strips. As such, it can also look great when placed in a mid-rise environment. Thank you very, very much for keeping the lot editable, too! This offers great opportunities for adaptation to different playing styles and preferences. A day with a Diego Del Llano upload is always a good day in STEX terms.
    • Boom! Another great HT here! Hope Mr Tsvirkunov will open a new factory soon in my cities! Thanks for sharing your stuff!
    • Nice idea. Should anyone have preferences or favourite buildings they recall, it would certainly help narrow down the total. Especially with the filter list on the Wayback, the accompanying preview images are there at least to give some visual indication for anyone searching. If there really are 10,000 buildings, I suppose it's not even worth uploading 10% of them given the likely inconsistencies with quality.
    • It may be worth setting up some kind of "I would like ..." topic .... people can go thru the old exchange and point out to Cori the ones that should be retrieved ... it should end up a more manageable list
    • That could be arranged. But since these are legacy files, I don't think it matters too much either way since credit would be given. If Cori would like to continue uploading these (as intended following Dirk's approval), it may be nice for her to receive the occasional Rep as a by-product reward for retrieving, packaging and uploading them here. With hundreds if not thousands of them, it'd require a mammoth effort after all. (Should the quality of content resemble anything to the old SC4 EA exchange, I'm guessing it's not worth restoring all of them.)
