About This File

City Data Center, by Mattb325.

This is a fictional building, the idea for which was inspired by a BAT by Heblem "LBT Torre de Comunicaciones Telmex" available on CapitalSimCity.

In real life data centers are used for many companies who either a) outsource their IT infrastructure or b) wish to house their IT infrastructure in a seperate location from their main offices due to either lack of space or for business continuity and disaster recovery purposes. 

I made this little building for myself and have decided to share it. 

It is representative of data centres that are often dotted within denser urban locations: its boxy, heavy set design with raise entry is meant to ensure it can withstand ram-raids and bomb attacks. This data centre will fit into a W2W environment, but also as a stand alone building.

It is designed for a 2x2 PLOPPABLE ONLY lot - it really isn't something that you want springing up multiple times in a city - and provides relief from demand caps for Res and I-HT (in real life Hi-tech industry rarely houses its IT infrastructure within the factory walls that it occupies). 

It is in the Landmarks menu and functions as ploppable IH-T industry.

It provides 325 Hi Tech Jobs.

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/

simply STUNNING! I have been collecting all of your work throughout the years and it still amazes me the level of detail and expertise you manage to achieve in all of your buildings. You are truly a master!

I love the roof junk on this one. That gritty, hardened look makes me think that there's some nefarious, hidden underground complex lying under it. Would make a great hideout for some supervillains. Thanks for sharing!

The design is good. The price is reasonable for 'high-tech' landmark. Thanks!

David Beckham?  No, I mean ... those traces rainwater leaves during the years on the facade - in my opinion those give the special extra to this great building.
