Please Note: As explained here, due to limitations in the Gallery software, some Challenge submissions may include a larger version of the same image (e.g. for mosaics).
Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.
No one likes flattening terrain, right? It just looks rubbish.
So most Victoria! buildings wont.
Consequently I am having to work out how to hide that ugly grey extrusion CO slap on the buildings' undersides.
Solution: Building a tall basement Prop I can glue under the things
Here its completely untextured, but got it lining up nicely!
Final basement props will be much more simplistic meshes with most of the shape detail baked as normal maps.

ATTENTION: Use one of the HD or SD model sets, not both. Remove the folder for the one you don't want.
This is the Troy Gasholder Building, built in 1873 for the Troy Gas Light Company in Troy, New York state, USA. Designed by Frederick A. Sabbaton, it housed a telescoping iron gasholder of the type found in Gascooker's prop packs and default Maxis industrials.
For more information please see:
Size: 3x3 Type: Natural gas power plant Menu: Power Plop cost: 900 Power generated: 300 The building is lotted as a 3x3 power plant with 10% of the plop cost, and 10% of the power generated as compared to the default Maxis natural gas power plant.
Historical accuracy caveats
The prototype lot would be close to 3x8, including a coal shed, maintance shop, and pipelines. In the interests of space, this lot presents a small storage and maintenance yard, along with a propane filling station. The real building is red brick with stone courses. This lot features a prop family with two alternate versions to fit in better with different areas: brown brick, and whitewashed/boarded up. The boarded up version has no night lighting. However, the small greenspace on one corner is found in the real life version, which is located in a residential neighborhood of 2-story rowhouses.

Simply unzip this folder to your plugins folder.
Bulldoze any examples of this obsolete Victorian folly which remain in your cities, then remove this folder from your plugins folder.
The HD models share their IDs with SD, and there have been no change to prop descriptions, so it should be possible to upgrade without bulldozing existing plops.
Remove the "Plugins/CT14/Troy Gasholder Building v1.0" folder to a backup location, then move the v1.1 folder into Plugins, as for example "Plugins/CT14/Troy Gasholder Building v1.1".
