About This File

The chief financial officer just announced third quarter losses were greater than expected, the head of human resources needs to discuss an incident at the company picnic last week, and a server outage has just erased three weeks' worth of data entry.  But hey, this is what you signed up for when you took all those typing and business administration courses at community college, right?  Presenting yet another set in a series of office buildings to provide some variety to your commercial business district.  Included in this upload are the following establishments...

Pazder & Smith, LLC
Stratford and Davis, Inc.
Baran, Buckey and Amirault
MacFarlane and Finkelhour, Esq.
Raschke, Rivera and Pace
Pulling, Jaffe & Egbert
Warnke and Todd Design
Hollander, Holmberg & Chick

The buildings here were made to compliment existing Maxis offices - all are made in a 3x2 footprint, and are lotted as 3x2 and 3x3 in most cases.  This pack contains 8 different buildings with over 40 lots, ranging from stage 5 to stage 7 CO$$$ with anywhere between 339 and 441 jobs.  All have been lotted similar to their Maxis counterparts in order to blend in; as such, there are no dependencies.  All have nightlights, custom queries, and stats similar to previous uploads.  Do note, however, that since these are all high wealth commercial offices, they won't grow nearly as frequently as some BATs released in earlier packs.  Special thanks to Simtropolis users Fantozzi and rsc204 for testing their growability in cities - their efforts are greatly appreciated.

So fire off yet another email to personnel, send your assistant out for another latte, and remind your boss that his wife's birthday is next week, and that you've already booked them dinner at their favorite restaurant...enjoy!

Thank you for the continuous quality.

As these are all growables, unique growables each one with its own story, gaming becomes much more enjoyable - you can't wait till one of them shows up in your city and then you say - as if you did something to be proud of it - ah, there is 'MacFarlane and Finkelhour' or ah, there is 'Warnke and Todd'.

Hard to describe. But you add more than just buildings to the game, you add fun to the game. And that's simply the best a content creator can do. Even if some doubtfull souls may say - this time, madhatter106 did it in a quite satanic way.

Another brilliant set! I am a huge fan of your art deco buildings.

You know, with your 8 midrise office packs you have created an expansion in it's own right! The vanilla midrise office buildings are nice (except for one in the Chicago tileset that is badly rendered), but they pale in comparison to the variety you've given us. These buildings sets just fit. Plus, there's the interesting names and backstories, which are a nice detail. And there's also the fact that you do all this models with good 'ol Gmax!

Thank you so much for all of your efforts!.

Man, what a time to play SC4!!! *:yes::ohyes:

      No dependencies. All lots are 5x5 ploppables in the Reward menu, available at the start, are road connectable and transit enabled, capacity: 100.  Maxis Lighting.
      This project is inspired by SimCity Version 1 (Classic) now called 'Micropolis' developed in the 1980's and released as open source. The last preview is an image of a session of playing the Java version of Micropolis that is freely downloadable from github.com.
      In Micropolis there are only three same-sized squares for RCI zoning. I've used the reward system in SC4 to lot 5 of the 6 largest commercial buildings, 2 of the largest high-wealth residential, 1 of the largest high-tech industrial buildings, and 1 agricultural building. All the lots are the same area size like in Micropolis.
      The queries are the same queries used for the buildings as grown in the game --the associated reward will only be indicated in the reward menu as the item is selected and plopped.
      The lots contain code for both the reward and the replacement building so apparently the lots provide the benefits of the reward as well as the operation of the building. The intent of making these lots is providing access to the buildings so I haven't evaluated the reward function, but the queries do report capacity usage for the replaced building --no 'goofy stat' for the reward. 
      Previews of Buildings Featuring Terrain Mods (see Preview.html in zip file)
      Terrain Resources Listed in: Cori's Terrain Shoppe
      Previews:
      1. Overview of 9 Buildings, Main Preview, 'Circuit' from Terrain Pack
      2. Alvin's Acres Agricultural, Berner Oberland Terrain
      3. Euro-American Residential, Pyrenean Terrain
      4. Modern Commercial, Sudden Valley Terrain
      5. High Tech Industrial, LBT Cumbres Terrain
      6 Overview at Night, Sahara Terrain
      Descriptions of the 9, 5x5 Large RCI and 1 Civic Building are included in the zip file:
      Colons separate the building name, building type, and which reward I used for the lot. The buildings appear in the reward menu with a unique menu icon, the building and reward names, and the description.  The Opera House, Farmer's Market and Tourist Trap rewards also appear in the Parks menu.
      • Van Prooijen Trading: Commercial: Convention Center
      • Ong Condos: Residential: Major Art Museum
      • Hurt Enterprise Headquarters: Commercial: Tourist Trap
      • Hogan, Wallace, and White Insurance: Commercial: Resort Hotel
      •Cahalane Communications: Civic: Bureau of Bureaucracy
      • Lind Entertainment: Commercial: Stock Exchange

      A stage 8 CO§§§ building in the Chicago tileset.  Capacity: 7,103
      ______________________________________________________
      I've given this lot project the name MicroProject and made a logo for identifying the lots in the Reward and Parks menus. Each lot appears near the original reward, with a building icon and the logo overlay. The original reward is not replaced. The re-lots are available at the start of a new city.

      These relot files (which is a combination of the pharmacy and bank relots together in one download) have been updated and packed together for your convenience into a zipped folder. The previous files have been removed because of this.
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. In the case that you would only like to download one of my relots, simply delete all the ones you don't want from the download folder.
      If you would like to clear up space in both your landmark menu in game and in your plugin files, you can delete the original lot file.
      To plop the BB&T bank, you will need to use the lotplop cheat.
      Walgreens is a 4x4 lot CVS is a 4x4 lot Rite Aid is a 3x4 lot Bank of America is a 2x3 lot BB&T is a 2x4 lot Other Dependencies:

      These relot files (which is a combination of the commercial relots I've made so far in one download) have been updated and packed together for your convenience into a zipped folder. The previous files have been removed because of this.
      Note that each link below is a dependency if you want my relotted version of it. However, if you only want one of my relots (e.g. Kmart) then you can delete the other files. However, for an odd reason that I don't know how to work around you will need to keep the 4x3 lot version of Tractor Supply for my version to work.
      To plop the Tractor Supply relot, you will need to use the lotplop cheat.
      Walmart (building) is a 11x14 lot Walmart (plaza version) is a 13x14 lot Kmart is a 5x6 lot Tractor Supply is a 4x5 lot Strip Mall is a 7x5 lot Dollar Tree is a 3x3 lot Other Dependencies:
