About This File

This is the NYBT essentials pack for many upcoming releases. It contains query windows - standard NYBT query windows for most common building types and a special 9/11 query. The essentials will be modified and improved when needed.


Remember to put the essentials file into the Plugins folder in order to see the NYBT query windows.

  • The standard NYC skyline can be changed into the new one, including new WTC complex - just unzip the file NYBT_essentials_new_skyline into your plugin folder.
  • If you wish to replace the standard Maxis query windows with the NYBT custom windows, unzip the file NYBT_maxis_query_replace into the plugin folder. Remember to use NYBT essentials main file in order to see the custom headers.
