You can say that again. Thank you so much for your recent contributions, @Diego Del Llano! They have all been great, and you've been pumping them out at an incredible pace. *:)

One thing I'd like to mention, especially coming from a lotter's perspective: would you consider leaving the modeled ground plane out? This way, it would be possible to change ground textures to match different styles or sidewalk mods, it would be possible to add different ground objects, and so forth.

That would be pretty much my only suggestion. When it comes to modeling, materials and night lights, you are great already and still gradually improving on a very high level, so I'm confident your future BATs will be even more awesome than your latest uploads. So thanks again and keep rocking the STEX! *:thumb:

EDIT:

By the way, looks like I know now which real-life building was the inspiration for DuskTrooper's Montauk Gas Company. Good to have an up-to-date version now!

      I have updated my Twin Towers I BATed back in September to bring you a new
      version!


      I felt the updated was much needed after finding some time to do so. I feel now they stand as they should
      for SimCity 4's standards.


      I'm sure most of us already know about the Twin Towers, what they were, what
      happened to them, etc. They were once great landmarks located in Lower Manhattan, in New York City. They were once the tallest buildings in the city and the state of New York. Standing on top of either tower would give you a feeling of being on Top of the World.


      If you'd like to learn more about them, feel free to read their Wikipedia Article for starters. Personally, I find them to be marvels of architecture. I miss them highly, and I hope that they can stand indefinitely in SC4 at least.  


      Installation Instructions:


      You do not have to demolish any lots. You can either delete the original
      model files from the previous upload and replace them with the new model files,
      or you can simply use the zip file to replace all files at once. The lots are
      exactly the same previously, the only change is the model files.


      Stats-


      Each tower sits on a 5x5 lot.


      Each tower is CO$$$ and provides about 21,000 jobs each.


      They are ploppable landmarks only, and are found in the landmarks menu.


      Dependencies- None! All added props for these towers are included.

      Special thanks to Mattb325 for modding the first version, then doing some more modding work for the new version. Thanks as well goes to T Wrecks and Gn_leugim for their opinions on this.

      Images/Screenshots:









      I hope you all will enjoy this update! I tried to update the original upload
      and unintentionally deleted it.

      Hello and welcome to a new city journal. A town based on somewhere in Orange County, California. The main road is Pacific Coast Highway which runs along most of the Californian coast. Heading north from Los Palma is the megalopolis of Los Angeles, whilst heading south will take you Oceanside the closest town to San Diego. This project will also me to create assets which have a Hispanic/californian style which I think is lacking in the workshop. Anyways, without further a do I present Los Palma:
       
      The Oceanside pier

      Looking south 

      Green renewable energy! California is one of the leading contributors in the US to renewable energy.

      Up coast
      Stay tuned for more in the next coming weeks, I will also start working on my first commercial Hispanic building. 
      Thank you for reading.

      The Willis Tower, built as and still commonly referred to as Sears Tower, is a 108-story, 1,451-foot (442 m) skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois, United States. At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Center towers in New York to become the tallest building in the world, a title it held for nearly 25 years. The Willis Tower is the second-tallest building in the United States and the 14th-tallest in the world.

      The version I chose to re-lot, not well-scaled and lacking night-lighting, but the texture and color was right for re-lotting.
       
      A better scaled version with Maxis night-lighting:

      Is my second original BAT design for the SimCity 4, Is a massive building with 305 meters ( 1000 ft) tall ( I've been working in this new concept, I also made a street level rendering to better understanding the geometry). 
      The complex building is located in Mexico City, is not a simple tower with offices or a mixed use building, What is the difference in here? , ¿What is a Hybrid Building? A hybrid building is an extension of the city, it allows Schools, Hospitals, Hotels, Living, Offices, Supermarkets, Museums, and lot of things. The interesting thing is that a Hybrid Building is funded by two economies, Privated and Public, so this make a super profitable building, the whole population in the city wins the benefits because they can use the public services in the building, and the private investor could make healty bussines in too. Basically a Hybrid building has to have the 3 essential concepts of the sustainability: Economy sustainable, Social Sustainable and Bioclimatic sustainable. Enjoy it ! 
      Sincerely:

    • Thank-you for making it clear how to connect the water pump.   It was a detail that I overlooked in my description because I was running the tests using the utility radius mod.   I think from now on in my descriptions I will offer to assist anyone that may have issues with making the lot work.  That may help preventing jumping to conclusions.  I'm including a new preview using @CorinaMarie 's graphic that shows how to connect the pump.
    • Ah! Howdy! Those are cars! Especially the red one shortens commuter times!
    • I followed the steps that came up but in the end there was an error message, "The system cannot find the file specified"
    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light.   As well, the darker tone of the water would be natural to the depth and confined space where there would be less scattering of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
