Solid model, I really do love how it fits in CBDs, however, I'd recommend collecting everything in a folder and uploading the folder, because uploading every bit seperately is a bit tedious

Another fine selection of a building.  Love the street level design. This adds to the set of your unique buildings with a feel for the weight and depth of real buildings.  Thanks!

      Fort Pegasus is an Historic Landmark that calls to an older era when the land was young and settlers were trekking ever westward in search of a better life.
      Forts such as this, carved from the very elements of the frontier, provided sanctuary to settlers and often served as a center of commerce for the communities that sprung up around them. Due to its historic nature, exquisite preservation and daily guided tours, this landmark also serves as a museum with the appropriate scholastic EQ boost in the surrounding area.
      Its a popular locale for family holidays and educational field trips.
      To avoid educational capacity problems, the fort has been converted to a true museum lot... with jobs. It no longer is a landmark in the technical sense. The custom UI now shows the standard museum data and funding control.
      DEPENDENCIES:
      PEG MTP SUPER PACK
      PEG One Flag - Many Nations Mod (ver. 2.05)
      PEG Old West Prop Pack

      By request... this package contains the 3 most requested variations of the PEG Poltergeist Manor. All versions are quite similar to the original and, of course require the original  Poltergeist Manor as a dependency.

      Included in this package are:

      1. Poltergeist Manor 365. Another landmark version that remains haunted all year long. The effects were modified so they too will "Haunt Da Hood" 365 days a year.
      2. Poltergeist Manor... The Growable. A growable R$$, Stage 2 lot suitable for all densities. Functions just like the landmark version except it has a normal residential query. Possibly the first & only growable building that changes with the season/holiday.
      3. Victoria Manor. A growable R$$$, Stage 3 lot that is just the non-haunted version of the mansion. Nary a spook or specter. "This house is clean!"
      * The 3 versions are in separate files so you can remove any version that you do not wish to use.
       
      Enjoy!!  And once again...
      Happy Halloween !!

      AddOn for 'PEG Coast Guard Station'
      So you finally earned the right to build your Coast Guard Station... and soon you may want to expand on that. Well, give them an airfield. This highly modular set enables you to make your base even more of a region's highlight! Build an air strip with hangars, additional helipads, more barracks and numerous small facilities.
      Before you wonder - no, this is NOT a functional airport... this airfield will be used only by the coast guard (though once in a while some military choppers might visit).
      And mind you - this babe ain't cheap! Make sure you got the cash to build it. The full-fledged air field can easily cost you up to 20000! Once built it doesn't cost much to maintain though, you probably get away with a little over a 100 bucks... depending on the size of your runway.
      ---------------------------------
      List of Included Sections
      ---------------------------------
      4 runway 4 taxiways 7 sidings 3 structures The set can be used by itself, but makes much more sense together with the 'PEG Coast Guard Station'. An exception to that might be the runways and taxiways - those can be used to build a landing strip of any type, anywhere...
      Btw: The runways are made up of Maxis default items - so yes, the level or realism may be questioned by some. But no, you don't need to be a trained pilot to build them - which will probably suit most :-))
      All pieces need power and water.
      All of them can be found at or near the end of your 'Landmarks Menu'.
      ----------------------------------
      DEPENDENCIES
      ----------------------------------
      * PEG Coast Guard Station
      * PEG Security Fencing Kit
      * Tabi SNCG Aircraft V2 (Also now attached in the download button above.)
      ----------------------------------
      OPTIONAL ADDONS
      ----------------------------------
      With this download comes a pack of additional pieces that you may wish to install (or not). Please note that you'll need additional dependencies (and cash!) for those. If you don't want or need these, just pull the similar named folder (or parts of its content) out of your Plugins.
      Kindly see the enclosed read_me for detailed information and links.

      Not a dependency, but I highly recommended another of my sets to add a good-looking security perimeter to the base:
      * Maximum Security Fence

      I just wanted know what some people's personal preferences were, when it came to city building, specifically how your city layout is like. Is placing residential zones near industrial zones good? I lay my industry a ways back from the residential areas as to not attract to much pollution. I just dont like how the smog clouds my cities.
