About This File

Hello guys!

I'm proud to present my first release at Simtropolis. The following package is part of a bigger seris of my take on some Brazilian Buildings.

This download consists of a set of both residential and commercial buildings, lots and props. The stats assigned to them are based on SC4 vanilla buildings' stats.

There are in total 10 commercial buildings and lots and another 28 residential buildings and lots, all in 1x2 lots.

This set only includes low-wealth and low density buildings. All are stage 1.

The buildings reflect mainly the architectural style of poor neighborhoods in medium and large cities of Brazil. They also fit perfectly in small town scenarios. I took inspiration from real life houses and shops located in various regions of Brazil, but nominally from the cities of Caruaru-PE, Recife-PE, São Luís-MA, Feira de Santana-BA, Maceió-AL, Garanhuns-PE, Quipapá-PE, Correntes-PE, Januária-MG, Montes Claros-MG, Jaguarão-RS, Vitória-ES, Laguna-SC.

I hope you all enjoy it! Please do contact me if you find any bugs or erros.

Dependencies: BSC Mega Props - CP Vol02

Installation: Just drop the folders located in the zip file into your Plugins folder

A little tip: Commercial buildings all have some sort of drawing of inscription in their front façade. This should help you distinguish commercial and residential lots





User Feedback

After 14 years of modding community - there are still fields almost laying idle. This world is so incredible rich of 'living' and me - not having the money to see it in original - SC4 somtimes is a substitute for the world tour I never made.

So thank you a tousand times for sharing this. Maybe one day I'll create a region where every city represents a part of the world. Just to wander around there. And this upload will be very handy then.

What Fantozzi said.

Jeez, most people are content uploading a building... you almost uploaded an entire freaking tileset! *:lol: And at what quality! Small houses they may be, but this upload is massive in volume and crazy impressive in terms of quality, too. Fantastic work and one of the highlights of 2017 already! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. *:)

Outstanding work. I love slum houses and poor man's buildings, so this is always welcome.

Are these Growable, and is there some way to ensure they don't dominate the landscape? I want to see other buildings besides this, obviously.

      Just because I don't like them, doesn't mean yall won't.
      All of the lots are "as-is," meaning no editing has been done since Bobbo662 originally released them around 2005ish.

    • I haven't compared this to the real-life version, so I cannot comment on how faitffully 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.)
