About This File

Eddy Hall, Minnesota, by Mattb325.
---------------------------------------

Inspired by a picture posted by a member of Simtropolis, the real Eddy Hall was constructed in 1886 as the Mechanic Arts Building for the University of Minnesota.

The actual building is a simplified Queen Anne style executed in red-brick and red sandstone trim. The square tower which is slightly offset from the centre of the building dominates the frontage; it, together with the multi-gabled roof, large windows, patterned brick panels and wrough iron cresting make this a charming, eye catching building.

This version is not a 100% accurate copy, but it is true to the language of the architectural style of the original building and this is simply one that I made for myself, but have decided to share with the community.

The lot comes in two flavours: a growable Commercial Services (3x2 and 3x3...there is always an insatiable need for CS§§§ in game) and a ploppable College on a 4x4 lot, which is found in the Education Menu.

They sure work for me, that much I can say. *:)

An absolutely lovely little building, albeit difficult to assign a function to... I think College was a fine choice. It does have a certain "official" vibe to it, but it's not pompous or grandiose like some government buildings. My firest reaction was like "Whoa, if I ever get around to playing again, I'll probably use it as a landmark", but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea to make it a college. Should be a great choice for the Chicago/NY tilesets especially.

Thank you for sharing this gem with us!

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      Houston Place Apartments, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by the sorts of developments springing up not only across Texas, but in many parts of the world, Houston Place apartments is a fictional apartment building that I created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ apartment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game.
      These sorts of apartments capitalise on the current architectural trends occurring in the South of the US: boxy, heavy-set buildings that utilise the trend of mixed materials: rubble-stone wall cladding, brick, steel and glass.
      Despite the assertive (albeit eclectic) use of mixed materials, they are neo-classical in style and quite conservative in the appearance of their street-scape and massing and are targeted at higher-end buyers.
      This apartment building is 8 floors high (including the roof-top recreation area and pool). The lower floors contain a number of 1 & 2 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartments, while the middle & upper floors are reserved for spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartments.
      The 7th floor has only two 4 bedroom + study, 5 bathroom 'sky homes' with wrap around terraces and floor to ceiling panoramic windows.
      The communal grounds planting showcases evergreens all on well-lit, compact grounds making these lots as good in all density areas.
      These apartments are presented in 4 options: a 3x4, a 4x3, a 4x4 and an 8x4 lot. The 8x4 lot may take some time to grow (the game has a tendency to break these lots up) but holding the CTRL key while zoning will assist growth chances. They grow on all tilesets.
      These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities.

      Description:
      I mentioned to mattb325 about an idea I had for some 19th century looking commercial shops that you typically find in the historical center of old towns and cities.  He was gracious enough to whip up some amazing models, so I was left to try and make some lots that would show these beauties.   Mattb made a huge number of variations (16 total models) so I modded them into prop families.  There are 9 growable CS$$ lots, sized 1x1, 1x2 and 2x2.  The stats are in line with similar maxis buildings.  The US looking buildings will grow on the Chicago and NY tilesets, while the UK looking models will grow on the European tileset.  I've also included two ploppable landmark lots with CS$$ jobs.

      Dependencies:
      Just the mattb325 models - Historic Commercial Project (v1.0)
         
      Installation:
      Simply unzip the file and put the entire folder in your plugins.  Feel free to delete the growable or ploppable lots, depending on your needs.    The MattB325_HistoricShops_Resource.dat is necessary though - don't remove that.

      Developer notes: 
      I created these lots to fit in any city or town - everything is lotted using maxis so as to limit the dependencies.  Please feel free to change textures/props as you wish.  Think of this as the bare bones version.     

      Support:
      For questions regarding this set, please feel free to visit my Lot Development Thread (SimCoug's Lot Den).

      Special Thanks:
      mattb325 of course!  Go over to his BAT thread and give him a huge thanks

      Old North Church, Boston, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Built in 1723, this is the oldest church in Boston and is famous for having been the church from which Paul Revere received his illuminated signals ("one if by land, and two if by sea") prior to his midnight ride to warn Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.
      The church is a national historic landmark and a mission of the Episcopalians.
      This building is modded as a non-conditional House of Worship reward (meaning it can be placed in your city at any time without having met prior conditions).
      It does not over-write the Maxis House of Worship rewards and can safely be used in conjunction with these (or any relotted version thereof).
      Placing this Reward provides R§§ CAP relief, has a park effect, boosts the mayor rating and also provides up to 17 highly desirable civic jobs.
      It is on a 3x3 lot.

      Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, by Mattb325.
      ---------------------------------------
      Inspired by the recent SC3000 uploads, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), San Francisco is a non-profit organisation and holds an internationally recognised collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the US West Coast devoted solely to 20th Century art.
      The present building was designed by Mario Botta in the late 1980s and the building - as depicted here in SC4 - was completed in 1995.
      It was recently given a large extension in 2009, but I have not modelled that part of the building.
      This building acts as a Museum and sits on a 4x4 lot providing 315 highly desirable civic jobs and gives a large educational boost across a wide radius.
      It is found in the Education Menu.
