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!

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:

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.

      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 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.)
