London Stock Exchange, by Mattb325.
---------------------------------------

London Stock Exchange was founded in 1801 and its current premises are situated in Paternoster Square close to St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London. It moved to these smaller premises from the Old Stock Exchange Tower on Threadneedle St in 2004 as modern technology has reduced the need for face-to-face dealings on the trading room floor.

London Stock Exchange is one of the world’s oldest stock exchanges. The current building on Paternoster Sqaure was designed by Eric Parry Architects and Sheppard Robson Architects. 

While this is a fairly faithful representation of the real-life building, given the absolutely crazy angles and curves inherent in the original design, not everything is 100% true to real-life; this was done deliberately to ensure that the building can fit comfortably on a 4x4 lot. Additionally, the sun-dial feature on the back wall of the building was omitted because it was too small to be visible in game and the fact that the sun doesn't move in SC4.

This building is modded as a non-conditional Stock Exchange reward (meaning it can be placed at any time without having met prior conditions).

It does not over-write the Maxis Stock Exchange reward and can safely be used in conjunction with these (or any relotted version thereof). This reward has been modded with higher CAP relief and jobs values than the Maxis version. Like the Maxis version, this building costs nothing to place and has no monthly cost.

Placing this Reward provides massive CO§§§ CAP relief, has a landmark effectand also provides up to 155 highly desirable civic jobs.

If you wish to help develop high-wealth commercial skyscraper districts, then in addition to ensuring the other elements of your city (such as good health, education, correct zones, low crime & other infrastructure) are catered for, placing this reward lot will greatly assist in CO§§§ development.

It is on a 4x4 lot.

NOTE ABOUT DARK NITE vs MAXIS NITE:


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. (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/23089-simfox-day-and-nite-modd/)

This is a stunning achievement!  Not only is it beautifully textured and lit, but the sheer complexity of it is modeled with an amazing attention and care for detail.  This looks like an incredibly difficult building to BAT, and you've pulled it off in high fashion.  This one should be up for BAT of the Year next time the Trixies roll around!

Thanks for bringing us this excellently detailed model. It was a great move to mod it as a stock exchange, the Maxis one is just so wrong in European environments.

Beautiful model of a fascinating part of a much-loved city! The modding, as superior as one would expect of the author, will help many city builders get their younger cities off the ground or get the high-density commercial district they are hoping for. Great work! The grid-busting appearance could play well with bizarre nearby road geometry and models that can do that are few and far between. Thanks!

Loving it! Epic work man.

Suggestions: a 2x2 overhanging version? I want it to fit in tight with FAR networks.

Ideas for your next project: BBC Broadcasting House. It has huge curving walls that would fit this beautifully.

Architectural status: It's complicated.

Welcome back to the STEX and hats off for modeling something as unboxy and intricate as this building!

( I was thinking you had forsaken us for the LEX...*:) ) It was time someone did something about the Maxis Stock exchange. Now that's the grand building it deserves ! I love the glass ceiling of the last storey ;, and the fact that this building is not a box !!!

      For years, the members of the National UFO Tracking Society (commonly referred to as N.U.T.S.) have been staking out the government's Area 51 in hopes of spotting some glimpse of the Alien Technology they firmly believe to be stashed away and often tested there. Of course, its all a ruse. Area 51 is just a front to keep all the freaks and crazies in one place where they can be monitored and rounded up if need be.
      The real alien research and technology is, of course,at Area 52.
      Hidden in plain sight... and literally right under the noses of the good folk living & working in the area. Area 52 has all the appearances of a common working farm... with common farming facilities & implements such as a farm house, barn, tractor, crop fields, electrified barb-wire fencing, billion candle-power security lighting, armed guards and numerous menacing black government-issue SUVs.
      Initially, a few of the locals appeared to be a tad curious. So a large sign was erected explaining that the site was NOT an ultra top secret facility... and anyone entering the site would be shot. And that seemed to have cured any further curiosity.
      By day... and from the front, Area 52 is an ordinary looking farm with a rustic charm that belies its real purpose. But in the dead of night while the locals slumber soundly and the night air is clear and calm.... an unearthly metamorphasis takes place that will curl your toes and straighten your hair.. Or straighten your toes and curl your hair. Results vary per individual. There have also been reports of nausuea, headache, dizzyness, diarhea, impotancy & rectal leakage.  But those are mostly from the Area 52 cafeteria... shortly after lunch.
      Area 52 is a 6x4 Reward lot that is free to plop and even generates some income every month just like the game-default Area 51 reward. But unlike Area 51, Area 52 is not conditional, not a crime magnet, does not make your Sims hate your guts, does not reduce the area to a caldron of bubbling toxic waste... and does not suck the power and water out of your city.  Area 52 is a much more "friendly"  scary government facility.
      Beyond the nightly mojo on the surface of the lot, there is of course the vast facility that lies underneath. The lot must be plopped on the edge of your city in order to see the underground complex. In fact, if the lot is not plopped on the city edge, it will be sealed off both from view and a viable air supply. Everyone in it will sufficate and die a most unpleasant painfull death. So for God's sake... plop it right!!
      The lot also features a custom query and rotating/random occasional sound effects that can be heard throughout the city. Despite efforts to maintain secrecy, its sorta hard to conceal a sonic boom.
      ** This lot requires the following dependencies:

      PEG MTP SUPER PACK
      PEG Security Fencing Kit

      The Nick O'Laus Toy Company
      The Toy Factory is a ploppable reward offering a few hundred industrial (manufacturing) jobs. It is also a landmark that will improve the mayor's rating and attract tourists to the area.


      It sits on a 6x5 lot and uses many elements of the Mountain Theme Pack (MTP). It doesn't pollute much and has a modest value that generates some local revenue from taxes. Other features include a custom query, chimney smoke from the central chimney and a custom background sound effect... appropriately, the March Of The Toys theme. Overall, its a pretty good value for its $2000 price tag.
      Each game-year as Christmas approaches, the lot begins to transform. It starts with the factory being covered with snow and icicles. Christmas lights appear and other decorations soon appear. As Christmas gets nearer, reindeer appear and the loading area behind the factory transforms into a reindeer landing zone.
      Stealing a Pic of Old Saint Nic
      According to Legend, the best way to get a pic of St. Nic is to hide in the woods behind the factory and make sure you have a clear view of the landing zone behind the factory. Best results are in night/darkness mode. With the game in slow mode, landing lights on the loading zone will begin to flash shortly before St. Nic appears. When he does, act fast. Before you can say, "Ho Ho Ho", he will fly off into the night on his appointed rounds.
      Join in All The Reindeer Games
      The eight reindeer are somewhere on the factory's grounds. See if you can find and "tag" them all. To tag a deer, use the query cursor tool and try to get the reindeer's name to show in the query bubble. Some of the deer are easy to spot yet difficult to tag. You will probably need to rotate the view several times to get them all. Tag all eight to win the game.

      The MTP Corner Starbucks is the Mountain Theme Pack version of the Corner Starbucks lot(s). Functionally, it is identical to the generic Starbucks's lot in every way. In this version, MTP props and textures have been used to give the lot a more rural, small town look & feel. As with the original Corner Starbucks, this package contains both growable & ploppable versions.

      The lots are 2x2 CS$$ and will develop in all densities. The growable & ploppable versions have different lot designs... but they both share the same properties and values.

      The growable version comes in 4 separate files, with each file containing a version for separate Growth Stages 1-4. This will allow the player to better control when and how often these lots will develop by simply removing any of the 4 stage files.Corner lots are notoriously shy about developing, so this duplication for each stage is intended to increase the odds that they will develop. If you find that they start appearing too often, simply remove 1 or 2 of the separate stage files.

      * The 2x2 RCI CS$$ ploppable version can be found in your Landmarks menu. This version uses a different lot design but is still intended for plopping on corners. This could be very useful when you can't get a growable version to develop precisely where you want one. The ploppable version is also in a separate file and can be removed if not wanted.

      The Coast Guard has finally come to SimCity. This CDK3 conditional reward is similar to the game-default military bases but with less poillution and no increased crime... and a lot more panache.
      No expense was spared in this 10x5 mega-lot that weighs in at nearly 5 megs. The lot is comprised of 7 nite-lit primary models and countless other custom props including boats, helocopters, static and animated coast guard personnel. The lot is extensively nite-lit, has transit enabled driveways... and includes a qustom query and query sound effect.
      Three different types of Search & Rescue choppers will come and go throughhout the day. The main security gates will also open and close as the station shuts down for the night and reopens in the morning.

      The lot is a conditional reward... yet is only available in the Water Transportation menu along with the other CDK3 specialty lots. It is fairly easy to earn. The requirements as well as your current status are displayed in the menu icon description. Alternately, you can earn the reward by completing the good Fishing Boat mission. (or just use the You Don't Deserve It cheat).
      * Although the lot is decidedly styled after the US Coast Guard, it is not intended to be specific to any one real-world nation. It is commonly depicted and referrenced as "Coast Guard Service" (not US Coast Guard) and the flag is a One Flag - Many Nations (OFMN) prop so the player can easily select any national flag to be flown.

      * All custom models and props used in these lots have been optimized for reduced file size and game resource usage.

      ** This requires the following dependencies:
      PEG-CDK3 Resource Pack 1 ( PEG-CDK3_Resource-Pack_01.dat )
      Included in: PEG CDK3 SUPER PAK
      PEG Security Fencing Kit
      Optional: One Flag - Many Nations (OFMN) Mod

      In episode #1, we kickstart the city by building up a small island and than looking to spread out our city in the next episode. We so far have began to build our skyline, and commercial districts and the iconic japan neon light street. Project Japan is a humble attempt to build a somewhat realistic looking Japanese city situated somewhere between Okayama and Kobe on the northern shore of the Harima-nada sea. Japanese city series are almost non-existent, perhaps because of the serious ack of Japanese themed assets on the workshop. Finding inspiration can be tricky. Therefore, revamps are to be expected throughout the series, as i get better at building Japanese cityscapes and/or new assets become available.
