    Standard Federal Savings and Loan, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- A classic mid-century cantilevered building, this dual towered mid-rise is inspired by old architectural drawings from the 1960s. The bulk of this building is fictional (eg, forecourt, entrance foyer and underground parking), but the external metal skeleton, 'eau-de-Nil' colour scheme of the wall panels and massings are true to the original. The building comes in four easily growable lots: two growable high-wealth Commercial Office lots (3x4 and 4x4) and two high-wealth Commercial Services Lots (4x3 and 4x4...there is always an insatiable need for CS§§§ in game). Use the CTRL key while zoning to enable ease of development. These mid-rises grow on all tilesets. --------------------------------------- STATS CO§§§: Lot size : 3x4 & 4x4 Growth Stage: 5 & 6 (Medium and High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 850 Capacity Satisfied: CO§§ 1,354, CO§§§ 948 Pollution: 5 (Air)/ 5 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 38 Mwh Water Consumed: 421 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: High Wealth Commercial Offices Building STATS CS§§§: Lot size : 3x4 & 4x4 Growth Stage: 5 & 7 (Medium and High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 850 Capacity Satisfied: CS§ 3,043, CS§§ 763, CS§§§ 307 Pollution: 20 (Air)/ 13 (Water)/ 27 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 86 Mwh Water Consumed: 766 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: High Wealth Commercial Services Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version.

    Alighieri Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Alighieri apartments is a fictional creation in the modern international style. These apartments are 14 floors high and designed to fit into tight inner-city 2x2 blocks. It will work as a stand-alone apartment building as well as in a wall to wall environment. It also provides a little bit of much needed competition to the HKABT/Bixel apartments which have few competitors in the 2x2 space. Like many inner-city apartment buildings, the ground floor is devoted to retail space. The tower area has four apartments per floor, each apartment has a corner balcony; the street-facing apartments are larger (3 bedrooms) and have floor-to-ceiling glass in the lounge area. The rear apartments are 2 bedrooms each. There is no penthouse suite, instead residents enjoy a roof-top communal pool. Basement parking rounds out inner-city convenience. This is a growable R§§ apartment on a 2x2 lot on all tilesets. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§: Lot size : 2x2 Growth Stage: 7 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 807 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,106, R§§ 612 Pollution: 5 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 9 Mwh Water Consumed: 24 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/New York/Chicago Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite. You must keep only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. Regardless of which file you choose to keep, make sure you DO NOT delete the Lot File! If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/) --------------------------------------- DEPENDENCIES: This file requires no external dependencies. --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES: Sadly, due to the complaints from a few members of the community, I continue to have to make the parking texture 'disclaimer' on all of my releases. This building is designed for inner-city areas. With the exception of the US mid-west where there has been massive, continued economic downturn and a flight to suburbia, no inner city area in the world has acres of parking: land is simply too expensive. This building has underground parking for residents only and visitors are expected to arrive by either public transport or park their car on the street; therefore no parking textures are included in the lot. If, in the ingame screen shots, there appears to be a parking texture used, it is purely coincidental and merely belongs to an adjacent lot that is not part of this download. If you want acres of parking or desire a different parking lot texture, then use the lot editor to make that change. --------------------------------------- To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

    Beverly Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Bring some retro mid-century glamour to your cities with Beverly Apartments. It is inspired by a real-life US west coast building which was originally designed as an office building, but with its distinctive, cantilievered, bucket-shaped balconies, was ripe for a residential re-purposing in SC4. In game it is offered as an R§§ apartment. The apartments are mostly 1 bedroom, but with wide curtain glass windows feel spacious and airy. The ground floor and lower ground floors are reserved for shops and gallery spaces. Secure underground parking and a pool complete the ammenities for all the residents. These apartments are presented in 2 options: a 4x2 and a 4x3 lot. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§: Lot size : 4x2 & 4x3 Growth Stage: 6 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §565 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,589, R§§ 878 Pollution: 7 (Air)/ 3 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 12 Mwh Water Consumed: 33 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

  6. WanWan Apartments

    1,077 Downloads

    WanWan Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Inspired by the old Won Won Apartments on the Asian Tileset in SC3000, Wan Wan apartments have that real retro vibe of 1980's apartment buildings. These are tall apartment complexes come in at 12 floors to capture the views and are solidly constructed from brick and coloured concrete infill panels. Each building also has underground parking, there are two apartments on the ground floor, four apartments per floor from floors 1 through 9, and the four apartments on 11th and 12th floor apartments are 2 story penthouses with a lovely sun-terrace to lie down and soak up the rays before the 1990's rolled around and everyone was told not to sun-bake. 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 and models come in a few variations: all of them are growable R§§ iterations and there are both orthogonal - and - because it's a SC3000 building, a 45 degree version as well. The larger 6x6 and 8x8 lots are landscaped, and to help these grow, use the CTRL key while zoning. All lots are designed to grow on the Houston and Euro tilesets only. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§ Orthogonal: Lot size : 2x2 & 2x3 Growth Stage: 6 & 7 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §697 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 929, R§§ 514 Pollution: 4 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 7 Mwh Water Consumed: 20 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro Occupant Group: Medium Wealth Residential Building STATS R§§ DIAGONAL: Lot size : 6x6 and 8x8.

    ING Direct, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- A high wealth, 14 storey office (CO§§§) typical of the 1990s style, it is inspired by an office in Sydney. It has typical features of the late 1990s: polished stone veneer feature cladding over concrete pre-cast walls; double height, off-set colonnaded forecourt; a curved central window feature and arched entrance-way; mixed materials and a small balcony for the executive offices. It is offered as a growable lot as a 3x2 and 3x3. It grows on all tilesets on medium and high density lots. Having reasonably similar statistics to the ingame Hourvitz Accounting, Ajjanagadde Inc, Goldman Building and Walton Plaza, it should offer some competition for these Maxis buildings. --------------------------------------- STATS CO§§§: Lot size : 3x3 Growth Stage: 5 & 6 (Medium and High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §803 Capacity Satisfied: CS§§ 1,049, CS§§§ 735 Pollution: 4 (Air)/ 4 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 30 Mwh Water Consumed: 329 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: Commercial Offices Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    Millennium Hotel Knightsbridge, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- If you've recently downloaded Harrods http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/31736-harrods/ you may be wanting some additional UK themed Bats to fill the surrounding area. Fear not; over on nearby Sloane Street, a brutalist monstrosity caught my eye, and so I have brought this into game. When I look at a building from Google Street View, if at a street level it piques my interest, then I'll usually look at it from either Google Earth or Bing to get a better feel for the model. It is at this point that I will determine whether I will do a recreation, or adopt a looser approach. Either way, there will always be elements of each building I look at that in my opinion will stay or go when I recreate the building for SC4. Normally not too many elements of a building get turfed out: those that do are either aligned at an odd angle (rather than the SC4 grid), or are too awkward to be worth my effort. It is rare, however, that a building catches my eye on street level, for me to look at it from above and shake my head with a 'what were they thinking' moment. Millennium Hotel in Knightsbridge is one such building. It caught my eye because there are so few of these sorts of buildings in SC4; now I'll admit I am not a huge fan of brutalist early 1970's architecture: add the inclement British weather & city smog and you have hulking concrete structures that have gone from a light green-grey to the most dreary shade of dirty grey imaginable. But regardless of your opinion on Brutalism, you have to admit that it at least exudes authority and gravitas. So it came as some surprise when I saw all of the truly, truly "twee" additions visible from the air....now, with apologies to Mcmansionhell.com and other spoof websites, please see my take on what got the 'cut' from this Bat and why... ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Hopefully my UK friends can get a bit of a laugh out of this: you have been through a fair bit in recent months. Now that that's out of the way, the Millenium Hotel is offered as a growable CS§§ building on a 4x4 lot. It is a larger 14 story mid-rise building, which I have made my own adjustments to. It grows on all tilesets and provides 960 CS§§ jobs. --------------------------------------- STATS CS§§: Lot size : 4 x 4 Growth Stage: 7 (Medium and High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 780 Capacity Satisfied: CS§ 3,831, CS§§ 960 Pollution: 35 (Air)/ 23 (Water)/ 47 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 77 Mwh Water Consumed: 923 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro (N/A for Ploppable) Occupant Group: Commercial Services Building NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    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. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§§: Lot size : 3x4, 4x3, 4x4 Growth Stage: 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 485 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,981, R§§ 1,095, R§§§ 480 Pollution: 7 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 61 Mwh Water Consumed: 83 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building Lot size : 8x4 Growth Stage: 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: §941 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 4,398, R§§ 2,429, R§§§ 1,063 Pollution: 15 (Air)/ 5 (Water)/ 5 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 134 Mwh Water Consumed: 179 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

  10. Kensington Apartments

    Version 1.0.0

    Kensington Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- A fictional development, based on a new build in London's West End, Kensington apartments was created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ aprtment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game. The single versions have stats similar to the in-game 'Packard Apartments' and should compete fairly well with this, and similarly-sized Maxis buildings. Like many of the newer London developments, this design is fairly straightforward: double storey entrance lobby (and ground floor flats each with a fenced off outdoor area) and then double storey sub-penthouse and penthouse levels. The building is twelve stories tall. As is often typical in inner-city developments, none of the apartments has particularly large balconies: traffic noise usually makes these less than inviting spaces. Floor to ceiling triple-glazed windows on all sides of the building more than adequately make up for this lack of terrace space. The communal planting includes a mix of deciduous trees and conifers; the larger lots have both a heated indoor pool and tennis court for the exclusive use of the residents. These apartments are presented in 6 lot options: a 2x1, a 2x2, a 2x3, a 4x4, a 5x5 and a 6x6 lot. They grow on all tilesets and all have varying stats depending on the lot size. These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§§: Lot size : 2x1, 2x2, 2x3 Growth Stage: 5, 6 & 7 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 635 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 716, R§§ 396, R§§§ 175 Pollution: 2 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 22 Mwh Water Consumed: 32 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- STATS R§§§ (x2): Lot size : 4x4 Growth Stage: 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 1,241 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 1,428, R§§ 790, R§§§ 347 Pollution: 5 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 44 Mwh Water Consumed: 61 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- STATS R§§§ (x3): Lot size : 5x5 & 6x6 Growth Stage: 4 & 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 1,847 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 2,141, R§§ 1,183, R§§§ 519 Pollution: 7 (Air)/ 2 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 66 Mwh Water Consumed: 89 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    Gertrude Apartments, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- A fictional development, based on a new build in the San Francisco, CA area, Gertrude apartments was created to compete with some of the mid-rise R§§§ apartment complexes which can become quite repetitive in game. This apartment building uses a series of massings and elevations to provide abundant natural light and cross ventilation to each of the generously sized apartments. This design also ensures that most terraces are private and that all but one is overlooked from neighbouring flats. This apartment building is 8 floors high (excluding the mechanical penthouse area). The lower floors contain a number of 2 & 3 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartments, while the upper floors are reserved for spacious 3-4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartments. The 7th and 8th floor has only one 'sky home' with a spacious, private sun terrace and generous planter boxes. The communal grounds planting is of low maintenance conifers on well-lit, compact grounds making these lots a great option in all density areas. The apartments are presented in two paint schemes: a deep, coffee colored scheme which looks great in dense, urban areas and a paler blue/green scheme inspired by the coast. Both are in prop families and will grow at random. These apartments are presented in 5 lot options: a 4x4, a 3x4, a 4x3, a 4x2 and a 2x4 lot. They grow on all tilesets and all have the same stats. These are a good mid-rise, high wealth, medium density filler lots for your cities. --------------------------------------- STATS R§§§: Lot size : 2x4, 3x4, 4x2, 4x3, 4x4 Growth Stage: 5 (Medium & High Density Zoning) Bulldoze Cost: § 493 Capacity Satisfied: R§ 899, R§§ 497, R§§§ 219 Pollution: 3 (Air)/ 1 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 28 Mwh Water Consumed: 39 Gal/Month Building Style: Houston/Euro/NY/Chicago Occupant Group: High Wealth Residential Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    Kane Tiberium, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- As part of providing some much needed, long overdue upgrades to some of the Maxis I-HT stalwarts, I decided that Kane Tiberium deserved a new 're-imaging' for the 21st Century. After all, the in-game dumpy little structure has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years, so it is probably due for some extra space. Given the initial rather pointless reference to an external game with the naming of this building, I doubt that such an industry could survive all this time in the real world. So in my version, Kane Tiberium makes NutriliteTM vitamins, minerals & dietary supplements products to turn a buck. Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed. This I-HT Anchor lot comes in two flavours: 4x3 and 4x4 (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size). It is growable only on medium and high density Industrial zones and provides between 300 jobs. The building itself is based on a boxy mid-century modern design and brings a retro flair to your industrial zones. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (IHT): Growth Stage: 3 (medium and high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: §264 Capacity Satisfied: IH-T 300 Pollution: 7 (Air)/ 3 (Water)/ 4 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 55 Mwh Water Consumed: 51 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: IHT Anchor Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    Harrods, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Inspired by the iconic department store on Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, Harrods is presented as a CS§§§ growable and ploppable lot for your cities. Please be aware that the present day Harrods has been extended and remodelled a number of times since the main building on Brompton Rd was completed in 1905, so this is NOT a strict recreation, but what I present is faithful to the original façade as designed by Charles Stephens, albeit with modifications to make it more game-ready. I have only modelled the front portion of the building. It must be noted that the present building has completely over-run the old streets of 'Queens Gardens' and 'New Place' and wrapped its way around what used to be known as Queen Street and Lower North St (since renamed Hans Rd and Basil St respectively), consuming the old Hans Mansion block and other buildings in the process. Because these streets run at odd angles and curves, even with the FAR roads and other NAM advances, I felt that modelling all of this would make the building almost completely unusable for the average player. Additionally the original building, aligned to Brompton Rd, was slightly wedged shaped - the old line is still somewhat visible under all of the present day roof additions from Google earth along the Hans Rd façade. Naturally I have squared this off to get this into game, which means that the rear of the building is completely fictitious. The present roof junk and extension of the Mansard roof along all facades is modelled - with slight variations by me - on the most up-to-date renovations: you can compare the differences by using the Google earth program (up-to-date) vs. Bing ?birds-eye/Google maps (out-of-date) to see the remarkable difference to the roof-top in recent years. Lastly, in order to fit the building on a maximum of 8 tiles (which will give it at least some chance of growing), I have removed one set of windows near the turret. Given the lag on my computer, I have also avoided modelling the hundreds of bulbs on the Hans Cres and Hans Roads sides. With all of that said, if you are strictly puritanical about recreations being 100% accurate, then please do not download this. The lot comes in two flavours: a growable Commercial Services and a ploppable, functional C§§§ lot, which is found in the Landmarks Menu. Both have the same stats. --------------------------------------- STATS CS§§§ & Ploppable CS§§§: Lot size : 8 x 4 Growth Stage: 8 (Medium and High Density Zoning)/Ploppable Bulldoze Cost: §631 Capacity Satisfied: CS§ 11,140, CS§§ 2,787, CS§§§ 1,117 Pollution: 50 (Air)/ 33 (Water)/ 67 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 209 Mwh Water Consumed: 1,871 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro (N/A for Ploppable) Occupant Group: Commercial Services Building NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    UK Suburban Retailers Pack, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- A pack of five UK retailers as requested by a number of people in the community to help address some of the lack of UK/European stores available for the game. Specifically, I made these for rsc204/mgb204 as he is always so incredibly helpful on the forums. The stores included in this pack are: Aldi, Homebase, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Waitrose. One of the most noticeable differences between US-styled supermarkets and box stores and the UK/Euro ones is the domestic scale applied to the architecture: quite often the buildings have an entire pitched roof or composite materials such as timber and brick which are more suited to a suburban house. The second most notable characteristic is that existing buildings are adapted and re-used: it is not uncommon for office spaces or old department stores to be converted to a supermarket and I have tried to pick a variety of styles for these BATs (not just purpose built buildings). These are all offered as growable 6x6, stage 1, medium wealth, Commercial Services on the EURO Tileset only. Use the CTRL key while zoning, or alternatively, use the buildingplop mod (contained in the extra cheats dll: http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/21118-simcity-4-extra-cheats-plugin/) to make these - or any other buildings - ploppable. Given how little competition there is in the 6x6 zone and the fact that the game does not readily break up this zone, I have decided to include growable lots only rather than further cluttering up the landmark menu. By growing (or plopping) these together, you can make quite cohesive retail parks which look great in suburban areas. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (CS§§) FOR ALL LOTS: Growth Stage: 1 (low, medium and high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: § 160 - § 228 Capacity Satisfied: CS§ 751 - CS§ 1,362 | CS§§ 190 - CS§§ 343 Pollution: 7 - 12 (Air)/ 4 - 8 (Water)/ 9 - 17 (Garbage ) Pollution Radius: 5/6/0 Power Consumed: 16 - 28 Mwh Water Consumed: 184 - 330 Gal/Month Building Style: Euro only Occupant Group: Commercial Services Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains files for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod).

    Quay House, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- Inspired by the art deco buildings around the Portsmouth, UK area, Quay House is a large (at least by the standards of the 1930s) eight story building in the functionalist style. The boxy building is broken up by complex massing and many terraces to allow air and sunlight to permeate the building, both of which were a very serious component of any good early 20th Century architecture. The main feature however is the off-centred granite clad staircase and lift riser with an oversized clock. The lot comes in two flavours: a growable High-Wealth Commercial Office and a ploppable Clinic, which is found in the Health Menu and is comparable to the in-game hospital in terms of capacity and coverage radius.

    Former First Federal Savings and Loan California, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- It's not only "old" buildings that are demolished in the name of the progress. This building was constructed in 1959 and used to stand at the corner of Hollywood and Highland Ave, Los Angeles. It formed and framed a famous part of the view from Graumans Chinese Theatre down Hollywood Blvd. It was demolished in the late 80s for the Hollywood & Highland project (i.e. where the Academy awards are filmed now). While this is not an exact recration of the old First Federal Bank, it is a good example of the Southern Californian mid-century, heavy-set, mid-rise office building. The beauty of these buildings is sheer quality of their materials: polished limestone with contrasting highly polished granite base, crittal steel windows and polished marble forecourts, but "progress", as well as the need to expensively retro-fit many mid-century buildings in shaky California saw these gems consigned to the wrecking ball. To make it a little bit different, I've angled it 45 degrees for a corner lot as there really aren't many such taller buildings in this game and by doing this it complements a lot of the taller angled residentials from Sim Fox, Bixel, HKABT et al. This building is offered as a growable high-wealth mid-rise building on all tilesets. It grows easily, but as it is limited to a 4x4 corner lot (there is one for both left and right corners) it isn't weedy. Hold the CTRL key while zoning to ensure that you get the lot size.

After all, the in-game structure that has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years does not reflect its grandiose name, so it is probably overdue for a facelift and some rebranding. Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed. This I-HT Anchor lot comes in two flavours: 5x5 and 8x8 (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size).

    Pedriana Pharmaceuticals, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- As part of providing some much needed, long overdue upgrades to some of the Maxis I-HT stalwarts, I decided that Pedriana Pharmaceuticals deserved a new 're-imaging' for the 21st Century. After all, the in-game structure that has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years does not reflect the grandiose commercial buildings which bear its name, so it is probably overdue for a facelift and some rebranding. Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed. This I-HT Anchor building is substantial and only comes as an 8x8 lot (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size). It is growable only on high density Industrial zones and provides 1,079 jobs. The building itself is fictional, but draws inspiration from the Voestalpine Stahl Service Center in Austria. Stats, links and dependencies are listed below. --------------------------------------- STATS (IHT): Growth Stage: 3 (high density zones) Bulldoze Cost: §266 Capacity Satisfied: IH-T 1,079 Pollution: 18 (Air)/ 7 (Water)/ 5 (Garbage) Pollution Radius: 6/7/0 Power Consumed: 133 Mwh Water Consumed: 124 Gal/Month Building Style: Chicago/NY/Houston/Euro Occupant Group: IHT Anchor Building --------------------------------------- NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE: This download contains TWO model files; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos night-mod) and one for the standard Maxis nite.

    Stratton Biotech, by Mattb325. --------------------------------------- As part of providing some much needed, long overdue upgrades to some of the Maxis I-HT stalwarts, I decided that Stratton Biotech deserved a new 're-imaging' for the 21st Century. After all, it has been filling up any I-HT zone for almost 15 years, so it is probably due for some extra space. Please note that this new file doesn't interfere with the original Maxis files and will work for those who have a Maxis blocker installed. This I-HT Anchor lot comes in two flavours: 4x4 and 8x8 (use the CTRL Key while zoning to ensure that you get the correct lot size). It is growable only on medium and high density Industrial zones and provides between 204 and 1,122 jobs (depending on the lot size). The building itself is strictly fictional: I have used exposed steel girders, a false wall and false window panelling to shelter a central courtyard. This lends a more substantial air to the front façade.

  23. I'm having some problems with finding my asset in game. I made a second building for the 'modern low-rise living' set. It's a level 5 high residential who fits on a 4x2 grid. But somehow it just refuses to grow anywhere. Both buildings from the set are/will be published with RICO settings added, but to test it out myself I manually added them in RICO too, The first building (which is already published) show up just fine, the new second building however refuses to show up in the RICO tab, and yes I did reboot the map and even game several times. So then I tried to make my own mini building theme with only a few buildings in it so mine will spawn more often, because of the 4x2 size it's pretty hard to force it, there are no low level buildings in that size so I make 4x3 zoning spots to let it grow (trying to avoid the 4x4 library). But when I'm in the Building Theme Manager I can't even find my own buildings, like the assets are disabled in the game. But then I look them up in The Mesh Info and they are showing up just fine... So can anyone please tell me why it's not showing up? What am I missing here? o_O

    I have been gone for years. Lost interest in SC4, but thanks to The Sims Freeplay on Android, I wanted to play SimCity 4 again. I started downloading models, playing around with Google Sketchup and I am back into the BAT making. If you recall, I made Pokémon BATs back in 2013 or so. I've made some Pokémon BATs in the last couple of weeks but SimCity lacked My Little Pony items. Here we have a house based off of the houses in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. This is a R$$ house. I have two versions. One with a few ponies: Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Rainbow Dash, and the non-pony Gilda. The other version is without the ponies. The Pony Props dat is included for the version with ponies.

    KOSC Presents: Diego Del Llano Growables - 2017 Pack One Introduction This is set of growable, high-density lots made from Diego Del Llano's BATs that were released in 2017. The objective of this set is to provide growable alternatives to the ploppable landmarks in the original release for a more traditional gaming experience. While ploppable are amazing in their own right, it doesn't quite allow for one to experience the feeling of zoning a plot and having that shiny new tower pop up. Package Overview 4/14 IMPORTANT NOTE - this file currently only works with the DarkNite versions, and NOT MaxisNite - an update will be rolled out soon to accomodate the MaxisNite buildings Included in the following package are a set of growables for all Diego Del Llano's 2017 releases (excluding the Loop Postal Station building in the Federal Center Chicago set). A couple of the buildings have different occupant versions to satisfy different demand groups. There are TWO versions of the package you can download: Vanilla and CAM. The vanilla version has all of the larger buildings capped at stage 8, with capacities that do not exceed 7500. For those that use the Colossus Addon Mod, the larger buildings extend all the way up to stage 15 and boast much higher capacities, up to around 11000. If you desire to plop the growables, use the buildingPlop cheat and look for exemplars starting at DiegoDL_ (requires ExtraCheats.dll). General Stats All stats were generated with PIM-X. Vanilla versions differ only in growth stage and maximum capacity tweaks (for buildings that exceeded 7000 by default). The breakdown is as follows: 4 R$$$ buildings CITITOWER Guadalajara, 4x6 left corner Ventura Place One, 3x4 front Ventura Place Two, 3x4 front Ventura Place Three, 3x4 front 4 CS$$$ buildings CITITOWER Guadalajara, 4x6 left corner Hotel Presidente Guadalajara, 5x5 front Hotel Presidente Intercontinental Mexico City, 4x2 front Carlton Hotel Johannesburg, 4x2 front 7 CO$$ buildings AON Center, 3x4 front Carlton Center, 3x4 front Carlton Hotel Building, 4x2 front 345 California Center, 6x3 front One Kansas City Place, 4x3 front Everett McKinley Dirksen Building (Federal Center Chicago), 3x8 front John C. Kluczynski Building (Federal Center Chicago), 6x3 front 10 CO$$$ buildings One Metropolitan Square, 6x5 right corner Gas Company Tower, 6x3 front Capella Tower, 4x8 left corner Park Building (Capella Tower small building), 4x2 front Chanin Building, 4x4 front Commerzbank Tower, 4x5 front IBM-Marathon Tower, 5x9 right corner Denver Place, 6x8 front First National Bank Tower, 5x5 front Torre Multiva, 4x3 front Detailed stats for all of the buildings can be found in the enclosed README. Install Instructions Pick either the vanilla or the CAM version and drop the files in your My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder. To uninstall, simply delete the files from your hard drive. Dependencies Main Building(s) This list contains all of the buildings used in this set.
