  4. Wertstoffsammelstelle (Small Public Recycling Site)

    Short description:
    You can find them in any village in my native country: Small public sites called ”Wertstoffsammelstelle“ (small recycling site), where people can dispose of the garbage they produce at home by sorting it according to material and putting it into the respective containers. I’ve lotted such a public recycling site for SimCity 4 (since I couldn’t find a believable English translation, I’ve just kept its German name), especially to provide a small garbage disposal facility for village-like settings. In-game, it works like an incineration plant – it basically just removes trash from your city – just with lower values and without producing power. Unfortunately, the stench makes sure that this building has a negative park effect, thus, it shouldn’t be placed near high-wealth estates. Yet pollution values are kept low and it does its job. The public recycling site provides 4 low-wealth civil jobs, therefore, it requires road access. It can be found in the sanitation menu.
    Please refer to the Readme for further information.
     
    Available languages:
    English, German (both Readme and files). The name of the plugin is in German, however, both readme and description are available entirely in English.
     
    Dependencies:
    SFBT Essentials: required for the trash containers.

    Installation:
    Move or copy the file Wertstoffsammelstelle.SC4Lot that comes with this download into your Plugins folder. To uninstall, bulldoze all recycling sites (all instances from this plugin) and remove said file.

  5. Karlsruhe Courthouse

    Karlsruhe Courthouse, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    The district attorney's office in Karlsruhe is presented in SC4 as a functional courthouse.
    It is a reasonably accurate representation although I have omitted the high perimeter walls which are just a little too imposing for my taste. 
    In addition to providing your sims with 128 highly desirable civic jobs, it will help alleviate the commercial and residential demand caps that can hinder city development by providing additional regional demand of over 80,000 CO§§ spaces and 10,000 Residential spaces. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.
    It sits on a 5x4 lot.
    * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
    * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
    * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
    * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame courthouse (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis courthouse reward.
    * It DOES NOT over-write any of my other courthouse lots (so can be used in conjunction with these as well).
    ---------------------------------------
    STATS:
    Lot size :                5 x 4
    Plop Cost:              §41,000

    NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

    This download contains TWO file types in two separate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mods) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
    You must choose 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. 
    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:
    To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins:

    ---------------------------------------
    NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
    Sadly, ongoing negative comments from a few members of the community continue to force me to add this ridiculous disclaimer. This building has internal underground parking, and I have not used parking textures. If you wish to add parking textures, please do so using the lot editor.

    ---------------------------------------
    To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.
    Thanks.

  7. One World Trade Center

    One World Trade Center (also known as 1 World Trade Center, 1 WTC or Freedom Tower[15]) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The supertall structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east.
    The building's architect was David Childs, whose firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) also designed the Burj Khalifa and the Willis Tower. The construction of below-ground utility relocations, footings, and foundations for the new building began on April 27, 2006. One World Trade Center became the tallest structure in New York City on April 30, 2012, when it surpassed the height of the Empire State Building. The tower's steel structure was topped out on August 30, 2012. On May 10, 2013, the final component of the skyscraper's spire was installed, making the building, including its spire, reach a total height of 1,776 feet (541 m). Its height in feet is a deliberate reference to the year when the United States Declaration of Independence was signed. The building opened on November 3, 2014; the One World Observatory opened on May 29, 2015.
    On March 26, 2009, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) confirmed that the building would be officially known by its legal name of "One World Trade Center", rather than its colloquial name of "Freedom Tower".The building is 104 standard floors high, but the tower has only 94 actual stories.
    The new World Trade Center complex will eventually include five high-rise office buildings built along Greenwich Street, as well as the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, located just south of One World Trade Center where the original Twin Towers stood. The construction of the new building is part of an effort to memorialize and rebuild following the destruction of the original World Trade Center complex.

  8. Maloskero - Brazilian Tenements and Medium Stores

    Hello guys!
    I'm proud to present my second release at Simtropolis. The following package is part of a bigger seris of my take on some Brazilian Buildings.
    This download consists of a set of both residential and commercial buildings, lots and props. The stats assigned to them are based on SC4 vanilla buildings' stats.
    There are in total 7 commercial buildings and lots and another 16 residential buildings and lots, all in 1x2 lots.
    The buildings reflect mainly the architectural style of poor neighborhoods in medium and large cities of Brazil, and generally of Latin America as a whole. It is worth pointing out that this kind of housing, altough from poor neighborhoods, are not proper favela buildings. I took inspiration from real life houses and shops located in various regions of Brazil, but nominally from the cities of Caruaru-PE, Recife-PE, Feira de Santana-BA, Maceió-AL, Garanhuns-PE, Belo Horizonte-MG, São Paulo-SP, Rio de Janeiro-RJ.
    I hope you all enjoy it! Please do contact me if you find any bugs or erros.
    Dependencies: BSC Mega Props - CP Vol02
    Installation: Just drop the folders located in the zip file into your Plugins folder
    A little tip: Commercial buildings all have some sort of drawing of inscription in their front façade. This should help you distinguish commercial and residential lots

  9. Comcast Center

    Comcast Center is a skyscraper in Center City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The 58-story, 297-meter (974 ft) tower is the tallest building in Philadelphia and the state of Pennsylvania, as well as the twenty-second tallest building in the United States. Originally called One Pennsylvania Plaza when the building was first announced in 2001, the Comcast Center went through two redesigns before construction began in 2005. Comcast Center was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects for Liberty Property Trust.
    At the beginning of 2005, the final redesign and its new name—the Comcast Center—was unveiled. The building is named after its lead tenant, cable company Comcast, which makes the skyscraper its corporate headquarters.[6] Leasing 1,094,212 square feet (101,656 m2), Comcast takes up 89 percent of the building. The building features retail and restaurant space and a connection to the nearby Suburban Station. In Comcast Center's lobby is the Comcast Experience, which is a 2,000 square feet (190 m2) high-definition LED screen that has become a tourist attraction. Designed to be environmentally friendly, the skyscraper is the tallest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building in Philadelphia.

  10. Willis Tower

    The Willis Tower, built as and still commonly referred to as the Sears Tower, is a 108-story, 1,450-foot (442.1 m) skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois, United States.[3] At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Centertowers in New York to become the tallest building in the world, a title it held for nearly 25 years and remained the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere until 2014 and the completion of a new building at the World Trade Center site. The building is considered a seminal achievement for its architect Fazlur Rahman Khan. The Willis Tower is the second-tallest building in the United States and the 16th-tallest in the world. More than one million people visit its observation deck each year, making it one of Chicago's most popular tourist destinations. The structure was renamed in 2009 by the Willis Group as part of its lease on a portion of the tower's space.
    As of December 2013, the building's largest tenant is United Airlines, which moved its corporate headquarters from the United Building at 77 West Wacker Drive in 2012 and today occupies around 20 floors with its headquarters and operations center.
    The building's official address is 233 South Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois 60606.

  11. The Posthouse

    The Post House
     
    The Post house is a small resident building in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. It is an English rural building built in late 18 century. Name, “The Post House”, is written in gothic lettering on façade, but most likely the name has nothing to do with the mail or post office. The road is called Post Street, so I guess the name of the building comes from here.
     
    My BAT is very similar to real building, but not an exact copy. The back side and the extension is my imagination. However, I have got inspiration from 3D Warehouse Sketchup model of this house, but the BAT 100 % my own work. I haven’t used 3D Warehouse model’s textures as I feel that better result can achieve if I use my own texture bases.
     
    In real life the Post House is most likely a resident house, but I offer the BAT as CO$$ office. I need small rural offices for my SC4 plays, so I made this as such. I have included a red brick variation of this BAT and it is a R$$ residential building
     
    The model is HD and with Maxis and Dark Night version. Night versions share IDs, so if you have both versions in the city, those will most likely conflict. It has a custom foundation, so it is slope friendly.

  12. Car Ferry Terminal

    Car Ferry Terminal, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    While I quite like the look of the Maxis Car Ferry Terminal, after almost 15 years of seeing the same ferry building in game, it's time for an upgrade. 
    This is a fictional building which I made for that purpose.
    While the lot conforms to the existing Maxis Car Ferry Terminal, it does not replace the in-game building. 

    It is also slightly easier to place along the shore line - if you have ever placed the in-game version, you will have no problems using this lot as the principles are identical. 

    Additionally, it uses standard maxis pavement textures (rather than a batted base like the in game version) so the lot will blend in with any sidewalk mods that you have. 
    Just like the ingame lot, this lot is transit enabled for road, and as long as you draw the road into the lot, cars will drive through the building.
    Car Ferry buildings are a great alternative/supplement to bridges, and I use them to ease congestion on the road network.
    Please note the Car Ferry Terminal is a separate network from the Passenger Ferry Terminal. 
    Ferries that leave from a passenger ferry terminal do not use a car ferry terminal and vice versa. Now, this is no different from the function in the vanilla rush-hour game, but as there are so few custom ferry terminals available for download, it is important to point out. Therefore, I recommend placing this at least twice in any city tile (on opposite shorelines) to get use.
    The ferry terminal is a modern building with a bar and restaurant on the upper levels. 
    It has similar stats in terms of capacity and monthly cost to the Maxis Car Passenger Ferry Terminal, but provides a few more jobs.
    It is also limited to a maximum of 16 terminals per city tile and both this building and the in-game car ferry terminal count towards the 16 terminal number.
    Obviously it is found in the water transit section of the transportation menu and obviously it can only be placed in a city where in-game water is present; it does not work on canals or ploppable water. It has been tested to work in Vanilla (Rush Hour) and various NAM releases, up to NAM 35.

    ---------------------------------------
    STATS:
    Lot size :                  3x5
    Plop Cost:               §150
    Bulldoze Cost:        §10
    Occupant Groups: Transportation, Strikable Transit, Ferry, Car Ferry, Water Transit
    Catalog Capacity:  1,000
    Wealth:                    Medium Wealth
    Demand Created:  Jobs§§§: 1, Jobs§§: 8, Jobs§: 18.
    Pollution:                 Air 1 over 1 tiles, Water 1 over 1 tiles, Garbage 1 over 0 tiles
    Power consumed:  10 MwH
    Water consumed:   38 Gallons/Month

    ---------------------------------------
    NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

    This download contains TWO file types in two seperate folders; 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 choose 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. 
    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 the following dependency:
    http://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/27915-cruise-ship-terminal/
    You can delete the main model and lot files if you wish not to use the cruise ship terminal, but be absoluetly sure to keep the two files marked 'Mattb325_RetainingWall-xxxxxxxx' If you do not download these, the ferry building will appear to float above the water. 
    ---------------------------------------
    To install, simply unzip the contents of this file into your plugins folder.

  13. 667 Madison Avenue

    667 Madison Avenue is a 24-story modernist skyscraper in Lenox Hill neighbourhood, Manhattan, New York City, U.S.A. Designed by Helpern Architects and constructed in 1989, it's acknowledged as Manhattan finest boutique office building. The 667 Madison Avenue Statue of Liberty is a bronze casting of the original plaster sculpture from which the New York Harbor Statue of Liberty was scaled. The work was acquired and installed by Leonard Stern in 2011 as a salute to American democracy and the legacy of the French-American alliance. Mr. Stern's father Max immigrated at Ellis Island in 1926 and often recalled the powerful moment of sighting the Statue of Liberty as his ship entered New York Harbor.
    To know more about the building, visit its website.

  15. Berliner Schloss (Reconstruction Berlin Palace)

    The Berlin Palace (German: Berliner Schloss or Stadtschloss) is a building in the centre of Berlin, located on the Museum Island at Schlossplatz, opposite the Lustgarten park. It was a royal and imperial palace and served as the winter residence of the Electors of Brandenburg, the Kings of Prussia and the German Emperors. The palace was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in World War II. Although it could have been repaired, the palace was demolished in 1950 by the German Democratic Republic authorities, despite criticism. The palace is currently being rebuilt, with completion expected in 2018. The reconstructed palace will be the seat of the Humboldt Forum, a museum for world culture which is a successor museum of the Ancient Prussian Art Chamber, which was also located in the Berlin Palace. The Humboldt Forum has been described as the German equivalent of the British Museum.

  16. Urban School

    Urban School by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    In real life, many schools teach students from Kindergarten all the way through to the end of Senior School, and, in this ghastly era of economic rationalism where every public institution must return a profit to justify its existence, many are also forced to host more lucrative adult evening classes.
    Having schools in SC4 that cater for Elementary through to High School is nothing new (for example see my Bourke St Public School: Bourke St Public School), but combining junior, senior and adult education in the one campus hasn't been done before (to my knowledge). 
    The Urban School combines all three functions. 
    It is crucial to note that this school is not designed or modded to be a radical lot. If you want a radical lot that increases education levels with no cost and taking up no space, then this is not for you.
    Placing this lot merely emulates all three functions of the Maxis Large Elementary School, the Maxis Large High School and the Maxis City College in terms of Capacity, Radius, Cost and School Effectiveness vs Average Age categories; using the upper limits of each school type to create a single multi-purpose institution. It houses up to 14,500 students and has a very large coverage radius. EQ Boost and Population vs Distance stats are the same as the standard Maxis schools.
    The Bat itself is fictional, and is based on any number of more modern educational institutions. 
    The central entrance area houses adminsitration, cafeteria, gymnasium/indoor courts & auditorium; the junior school is housed in the smaller wing, and the senior school laboratories and workshops in the larger wing.
    The adult college uses the senior wing after 5pm once all of the students and day teachers have gone home.
    This is a large building and lot, weighing in at 8x8 tiles (a bit over 4 acres in the old parlance) and has ample room for a soccer pitch, grassed relaxation areas and the typical asphalt surfaces where countless kids can graze their elbows and knees when falling over.
    It provides 390 teaching jobs.
    Visually, the lot is best placed on a corner, following the contour of the front driveway area.
    Like all my Bats, I have thoroughly tested this concept in both a Vanilla game and a full (4+GB) plugins for over 500 Sim Years in each and haven't observed any abnormal occurrences. In other words, all education levels increased when placed, desirability increased, rewards were unlocked, teachers went on strike when funding was dropped etc, etc.
    However, if there are any issues, please report them on my thread (Repository of Garbage, Broken Dreams and Disappointment).

    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/) 
    ---------------------------------------
    NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
    ****Sigh**** I look forward to the day when I won't have to write a ridiculous parking texture disclaimer for every Bat I release..... 
    The area in the front of the administration and senior wings is reserved for buses and teachers cars only. 
    I have deliberately left massive parking areas off this lot as it is already a large size (large lots attract extra crime) and there are so many custom parking lot options available that you can place your own parking, or, you can use the lot editor to maroon this BAT like some desert island in a dull endless sea of asphalt and white lines to emulate middle America. 
    ---------------------------------------
    DEPENDENCIES:
    To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins:

  17. Bedford Square

    This Bat pack is a facsimile of building in Bedford Square, London, WC1. These are not exact copies, façades are close to real buildings, but the back sides are mostly of my imagination. I have also been very creative with the corner buildings. Still I hope that these give a feel of Bedford Square architecture. In total this pack consist 12 BAT models.
     
    Bedford Square is built in 1783 as an upper middle class residential area. It was a part of the speculated building boom, which saw London grow to North and West during late 18th Century. Bedford Square is one of the best preserved Georgian Squares in London and thus I feel it is a fine example of the Georgian architecture.
     
    Today these buildings are mostly commercial offices, but I have lotted these as residential buildings. As these were at the time of the building. The wealth level is bit of touch and go, because today a such of flat in London would cost a fortune. Still I feel that High Wealth in SC4 would require certain level of grandeur, simply being old is not good enough, so I lotted only stucco buildings as High Wealth and brick face ones are Medium Wealth. My compromise and these can be easily change if needed.
     
    The corner buildings are available as ploppable CO$$ versions and I have included a few models as 45 degree diagonal bonuses. I haven’t lotted diagonals and as I have a little experience about diagonals, I haven’t yet figured out how to use those efficiently. May be some can and is able to use bonus diagonals.
     
    The model is HD and with Maxis and Dark Night version. Night versions share IDs, so if you have both versions in the city, those will most likely conflict. Due the nature of the wells, these are not slope friendly and are at the best on relative flat terrain.
     
    If there is a demand for SD versions, I might consider it. So if you want SD BATs, please make a request.
     
     
    Dependencies
     
    Most buildings occupy a full lot, so the dependencies are essentially optional. However, a few lots have space on the back, so I have used some HD props on those.

  19. Convention Center

    Convention Center, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Though fictional, this building is inspired by some of the modern architecture of China which shows an amazing combination of self-assuredness, ebullience and seemingly gravity-defying engineering.
    Sitting on a 6x6 lot, this is a large building with the lower three floors alone providing almost 8,000m2 of floor space per floor. At its highest point, the building is 8 stories tall.
    There is also a combination of exhibition halls (including high-clearance spaces), conference rooms, cafeterias and indoor/outdoor spaces. The entire building is arranged around a pleasant, treed central courtyard
    There are very few Convention Center buildings available for SC4, and even fewer that are actually *modded* as a Convention Center. This building provides some much-needed competition in that space. 
    This BAT functions as a reward-lot and Convention Center in game. 
    In addition to providing your sims with 154 highly desirable civic jobs, it will massively help alleviate the commercial demand caps that can hinder city development by giving an additional CAP relief of 270,000 CO§§ and 270,000 CO§§§ jobs in the region. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.

    * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
    * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
    * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
    * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame Convention Center (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis Convention Center reward.

    ---------------------------------------
    STATS:
    Lot size :                 6 x 6
    Plop Cost:              §47,000
    Monthly Cost:        §220
    Budget Item:          Government Buildings
    Occupant Groups: Reward, Convention Crowd, Burning Dude Maker
    Demand Created:  Jobs§: 108, Jobs§§: 40, Jobs§§§: 6.
    Landmark Effect:   +200 over 64 tiles
    Pollution:                 Air 3 over 2 tiles, Water 2 over 2 tiles, Garbage 25 over 2 tiles
    Power consumed:  59 MwH
    Water consumed:   71 Gallons/Month
    Bulldoze Cost:        §3,280
    ---------------------------------------
    NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:

    This download contains TWO file types in two separate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mods) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 
    You must choose 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.

    ---------------------------------------
    DEPENDENCIES:
    This lot does not require external dependencies.

    ---------------------------------------
    NOTE ABOUT PARKING TEXTURES:
    This building deliberately does not come with parking textures, so that you can use your own parking lots adjacent to the lot, thus making it useful in both urban and suburban settings. If you wish to add parking textures, please do so using the lot editor.

  20. Eighth Avenue Place - East Tower

    Eighth Avenue Place East Tower from Calgary, Canada.
    3x5, 5x3 ploppable and growable.
    This was originally just a test export. But since the 3dsmax files have become corrupt, I can no longer finish the model. So, you'll notice details about the building a different and a few incomplete things here and there. Just thought I'd upload it as is rather than it go to the graveyard.
    Oh well!
    No dependencies.

  21. Perth Council Building

    Perth Council Building, by Mattb325.
    ---------------------------------------
    Inspired by the Council Building in Perth's Stirling Gardens, here is another iconic early 1960's building.
    This is an example of the modernist style with Bauhaus leanings, and has distinctive external 'T' shaped sun-shades in alternating patterns over the curtain glass wall to block out the hot Western Australian sun. Conversely, the roof area has a perspex covered walkway which I imagine would be about as comfortable as an ant under a magnifying glass in the broiling summer heat!
    It is with the 'T' shaped awnings that I taken most of the liberties with this building; reducing the width of the top part of the 'T' to ensure that each sun-shade is clearly visible in game rather than blurring into one. 
    The real-life building was actually slated for demolition in the 1990's, but was saved and renovated as well as adding one extra floor at the top of the building. 
    Recently, the building was also fitted thousands of coloured leds: hence, the unusual, and prettily-coloured night-lights.
    This BAT functions as a government building and town hall in game. 
    In addition to providing your sims with 185 highly desirable civic jobs, it will help alleviate the commercial demand caps that can hinder city development. Given the way that the game is designed, in addition to providing health, education, safety, etc, using rewards is an absolutely necessary part of being able to develop large cities and regions.
    It sits on a 5x3 lot and will easily blend in with other park lots (such as the SFBT mid-wealth set) that use the Maxis R$$ plain grass. Similarly, given the fact that the building is 13 floors high, it will also work well in a dense city environment.
    * It is offered as a reward without needing to meet pre-existing conditions.
    * It is located in the REWARD Menu 
    * It can be placed more than once in a city. 
    * It DOES NOT over-write the ingame town hall (or any re-lotted versions there-of), so can be used in conjunction with the standard Maxis town hall reward.
    * It DOES NOT over-write any of my other town hall lots (so can be used in conjunction with these as well).
