This isn't actually a request, but I was reading an article about the future of retail stores and there was this cool picture of a vintage Sears, so I wanted to share it here.  Pretty soon BATers won't need to make any retail buildings... everything will just be Amazon distribution centers... :lost:

After seeing the beautiful Beverly apartments posted by @mattb325 I remembered here we have some fancy mix century buildings that would look very good on the game:

Enaco Building (Huérfanos 1373, Santiago de Chile)

910530979b0b58cef19025fe71df989d.jpg

 

Copacabana Building (La Marina 94, Viña del Mar) 

DSC_8520.jpg

 

Plaza de Armas building (Veintiuno de Mayo 565, Santiago) 

14589323921_5ee4e00701_b.jpg

 

All of them were done by a loose group of modernist architects: Jaime Larraín, Osvaldo Larraín and Gustavo Kulczewski being the more frequent collaborators. Javiera González Zarzar made an investigation about their work with balconies and how they manage to create spaces of privacy on heavily populated streets. The resumed text and very useful drawings and photos are available at ArchDaily.

As it's relatively evident by the photos, all of them would behave very well both as isolated or W2W buildings, and due to their different placement and caring, each one coincides roughly with each wealth level in-game. Also, as is true with two of them, they would go well modded as offices, services or residences.

Yo, Guys --

This may be a "dumb" question, but I'm going to ask anyway -- and since this is where a lot of "batters" look in -- this must be the place.  It should be obvious from my question that I know little to nothing of the skills required for "batting".

Is it possible to take the model file (building) from an existing lot and resize it?  Say -- enlarge it by 30% - 40% - or 50% ??

I ask because there is a fine building model that is crying to be used -- but it is not in scale with the associated props or filler lots that could be used with it.

I believe it's not possible, or at least almost impossible. I'm not sure, but there's a way to modify the LODs and images (buildings are images on SC4), but it's useful for very specific situations. I think it wouldn't worth it when resizing because even if you successfully resize it the textures would look distorted with a low quality. 

Since I'm not really sure about it I think @Jasoncw might have a better explanation. If I'm not wrong @gutterclub also have experience with it.

Yep that's all correct. :) 

You can use the model tweaker to resize a BAT (it must be resized equally in all directions). But the image quality won't look very good because of the distortion from scaling the renders (buildings in SC4 are like 2d sprites from old video games but they're mapped onto 3d objects because the game engine is 3d).

I recomment to bat this one:

st173351-AFGHAN-Blue-Mosque-Mazar-e-Shar

The Blue Mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif, north west Afghanistan.

Reasons:

. we don't have any afghan monument yet.

- batter would earn immortal fame doing this.

- it would be a fine alternative to the Maxis Hagia Sophia.

- the reflecting ground/marble and the composition of colours would add something unique and special to the game

 Here are some suggestions If anyone is looking in to makeing shopping lots.   Ingles Food and Drugs with Fuel Center, BiLO grocery store, Newer Family Dollar, Dollar General, kroger Marketplace with Fuel Center,  giant eagle market District with get go gas,  Walmart neighborhood market with Walmart gas,  Murphy USA express, Pilot And Flying J truck stop, ollies bargain outlet, bleks, hhgregg,  modern White Castle, modern Wendy's, modern Taco Bell, modern and older Lohn johns. I had plans to do all these but never got my hands around to do it or even couldn't get it to work. These are some ideas but I can live without them getting done.

Really Surprised no one has thought to build some of the buildings from GTAV (I've seen a couple from GTA IV, but none from V)

 

Xero Gas

LTD

Cluckin Bell

Bishop's Chicken

Davis Mega Mall

YouTool

Blarney's Beer Water Tower

Harry's

Devon Weston Villa

Bristol Coke Storage

The Hen House

Burger Shot

Auto Exotics

Bean Machine

Grapeseed Supermarket

Great ideas.... where is the lots from GTA 4 at?

 

Mod edit: please remember not to quote images unless strictly necessary, and to thumbnail them when kept (it's done with a double click on the image, then changing its size). matias93.

I would like to see a Buffalo Wild Wings. It seems like no one is interested in making retail lots anymore. I may have to learn how to do this, but I'm really no good at using CADlike programs.
