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).



Lot size :                5 x 4
Plop Cost:              §41,000
Monthly Cost:        §910
Budget Item:          Government Buildings
Occupant Groups: Reward, Courthouse
Demand Created:  Jobs§: 16, Jobs§§: 104, Jobs§§§: 8.
Demand Satisfied: R§: 5,000, R§§: 5,000, CO§§: 80,000
Landmark Effect:   +120 over 36 tiles
Pollution:                 Air 6 over 2 tiles, Water 1 over 3 tiles, Garbage 29 over 0 tiles
Power consumed:  92 MwH
Water consumed:  184 Gallons/Month
Bulldoze Cost:        §9,140



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/) 



To ensure proper functionality, make sure the following files are in your plugins:

*BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=1180)
*BSC Mega Props - CP Vol02.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=2790)
*BSC Texture Pack - Cycledogg V01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=101)
*BSC Texture Pack - BSC Textures Vol01.dat (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=90)



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.

I'm deeply impressed. You did right doing it without the walls - it's much more versatile and game-friendly this way. Indeed this could be reused as i-ht, office, school, police ... Also I'm impressed how you managed to enhance the roof - the original is very plane and due to the specific perspective of the game this wouldn't look very well.

Imho you have a great sense for the needs of the game - making beautiful stuff with a high usability.

How to thank you? I don't know - no words seem to match the gift.

This is great. Even though it's a courthouse I think it would work well in a university setting. I need more modern looking buildings for my university.

Always need more variety in our rewards since they indeed do add as cap relief for our regions. A fact that is overlooked by many when trying to figure out why their demand keeps tanking. Thanks.

      The props can be used individually or as a prop family. Item names start with "AndisArt_PROP_carpack", followed by the model name and color. Prop family ID is 0A341980.
      There is a test lot that can be found in the landmark menu for an overview of all models.

      The BSP proudly presents the Cadillac Tower!

      Cadillac Tower is a Beaux Arts skyscraper located in downtown Detroit, Michigan. At 38 floors, it was the tallest building in the world outside of New York and Chicago when it was built in 1927. It now houses the city's planning, development and recreation departments.

      Included with this BAT is a prop that depicts three billboards that have graced the side of Cadillac Tower in the past, including one of the legend himself: Barry Sanders! The billboards appear at random.

      If you do not wish to use the billboard, simply remove the file named "Prop_CadTower_Billboard.dat"

      The American Dream follows the city of Crescent, a big, sprawling, segregated and troubled city located along the Atlantic shore of the state of Georgia, USA - south of Savannah, GA, and north of Jacksonville, FL. The series depicts a city desperate for inner-city revitalization, crime reduction, urban investments & infrastructure upgrades. Loss of industry, manufacturing jobs and the subsequent white flight, as well as a race riot, took a heavy toll on much of the urban core of Crescent.
      The Crescent City Council will be the main catalyst for change, and consists of all those of you willing to take part in the coming votes and thereby help shape the city and it's prospects.
      "In episode #1, we start by placing down much of the road network that encompasses the several Downtown districts of Crescent, before filling out much of the eastern part of Downtown with a mixture of gorgeous historic buildings, arguably less gorgeous office skyscrapers, parking lots, dilapidated blocks and civic buildings. A modern budget-overrunning train station connects the city to the Silver Service route of Amtrak. 
      We also briefly touch on the current issues facing a city with an almost archetypal contemporary US urban problem; large swaths of inner-city areas in bad shape, mangled by closing industries, suburban flight, inappropriate highway construction and crime"

      Thanks for watching and feel free to jump over to the community tab on my YouTube and participate in the vote!

      This is a 16x24 region with 16 big and 32 middle cities.
      I built it from satellite images of the region Ilha de Sao Vicente in Brasil. It is quite accurate but i did the following modifications:
      - a few more islands in the bay
      - a crater on one ficticius island
      - a bit higher mountains
      - manually retouched all the rivers and coastlines to make them deeper and nicer to look at in the game
      - a few modifications to build nicer ports
      You cannot build subways on the island because, like in real life, they are just not high enough.
      I like to play it very much with some poor housing mods like
      from Simtropolis:
      - Favela 1.1 by Wallibuk
      - Latino house by Wallibuk
      - Maloskero - Brazilian Tenements and Medium Stores 1.0.0
      - Polish Row Houses by RaNoV
      from SC4Devotion:
      - polish buildings from PGB
      Please tell me if you find some similar lots/buildings/stuff that could fit into this region.
      There is a README included in the zip file where i explain how to install the SC4M file with SC4TerraFormer
