About This File

WILLOUGHBY TOWER, at 8 S. Michigan avenue, on the southwest corner of E. Madison street, built in 1929, is 36 stories high, on caissons. Samuel N. Crowen was the architect. The eight-story Willoughby building (Western Bank Note building) previously occupied this corner.

 

The newest design for the Willoughby Tower, by S. V. Croweon, architect, to be erected at the southwest corner of Madison and Boul Mich was announced on February 4, 1928. It is almost changed from the first design shown in The Tribune of Sunday, Sept. 18, 1927. Instead of being black, it’ll be of variegated Indiana limestone on the two stret elevations, with the first two floors of granite. The tower will le flood lighted. Work started May 1, 1928.

The model is great, as others have said.

As far as the lighting goes, I've had that problem before. All it's doing is facing the wrong way... you can see a little of the shadow of the taller part of the building casts on the wider lower part, going the wrong way. The fix is honestly pretty simple for me usually, you just need to import the LODs and the model into another scene and re-render it (be sure to run a test render from one of the angles to make sure the problem isn't persisting).

Once again I'll be that obnoxious guy :/

First, the good things: EVERYTHING! Deco is one of the hardest styles to model, with all those small details, and you mastered at the first building; also, the texture selection is simply perfect, as are the reflections.

But there's something uncanny with the lighting: yes, it looks much more real than most SC4 buildings, but as the light is more intense and oriented differently to the rest of the game, it appears like you took a photograph of a real building (that's a show of your skills with modeling, by the way) and pasted it over a capture of SC4. I guess it was an accident or something weird going on with the rendering configuration...

Let's say that my rating is 9/5 when it could be 10/5, and I'll gladly rise it when the lighting issue gets resolved. Nevertheless, this building is pure gold!

Wow, I thought the first screenshot was a photo with how well the natural lighting on the building looked o.O. The shadows look like they face a different direction though. Still, a wonderful model!

      Chase Tower was built in 1959, to be the headquarters for the National Bank of Detroit. The building has gone through a number of name changes, reflecting a series of mergers, and was christened with its most recent name in 2006. The most consistent name for the building is "The Cheesegrater", coined for its facade of alternating windows and marble panels. Detroit's first skyscraper, the Hammond Building, built in 1889, was demolished to make way for Chase Tower.
       
      Chase Tower is surrounded by several Detroit landmarks, including One Detroit Center, The Guardian Building, The Penobscot Building, and Campus Martius Park.
       
       
      There five lots included. CO§§§ and CO§§ growables, ploppables, and a landmark. They can be used at the same time without any conflicts. Ploppable and landmark versions will appear in your Landmarks Menu.
       
      If you're playing a German or Spanish copy of the game, the query will automatically read in German or Spanish.
       
       
      Dependencies:

      International Day of Peace from the Official SimCity 4 Website
       
      These dependencies are a mod that allows you to choose which nation's flag will appear, and then the flags themselves.
       
      Please note that not having these dependencies will not result in brown boxes, error messages, or game crashes. The only thing that will happen is that no flags will show. You must be product registered and logged in in order to download from the official SimCity 4 website.

      The Olde Building was built in 1927. It is designed by Albert Kahn, with sculptural work by Corrado Parducci. The building sits across the street from the famous Lafayette and American Coney Islands, on the corner of Griswold Street and Lafayette Boulevard, in Detroit, Michigan. Its address is 751 Griswold Street.
       
      It once housed headquarters for Olde, which was bought by H&R Block, who then had offices in the building. Recently, H&R Block moved to the nearby Dime Building, and The Olde Building is currently being marketed as retail on the first two floors, and lofts above.
       
      This month, a member of the Detroit online community, Jeff Colby, died. While I didn't know him in real life, and I didn't know him very well online, he was very helpful on the forums when I asked for help on Barry Sanders Project buildings. He's provided reference photos and histories for many of my Barry Sanders Project buildings.

      An old favorite comes back with fresh textures and DarkNite compatibility!

      The Film Exchange Building was built at the corner of Cass and Montcalm in 1926 for the distribution and booking of movies for the Detroit area. The building featured fireproof vaults for the nitrate films. By 1964, the building was mainly occupied by unions. In the 1970s, the doors were finally closed on the Film Exchange Building.

      A point of clarification: This version is completely remodded, so you can have both the old version AND the new version in your plugins folder and there will be no conflicts. However, if you only want to use the new version, you will want to delete all files associated with the old version.
       
      2x3 growable and ploppable CO$$. Available in both MaxisNite and DarkNite DarkNite requires the Day and Nite Modd
