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.
