      Installation Instructions:
      Extract the file folder and copy it to your SimCity 4 Plugins folder (usually MyDocuments/SimCity 4/Plugins). Buildings can be found in Landmark menu, sorted by plop cost.
      Most files have been packed in a .dat file which is required, do not delete. The two different lot files (landmark and ploppable with jobs) are left as seperate files and so that they can be used alone or both at the same time.  
      The DarkNite version (DN) requires SimFox's Day and Nite Mod.
      Warning:
      Only use either the MaxisNite or the DarkNite version, you cannot use both at the same time!
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Note:  Due to the nature of the building shape anti-alliasing had to be enabled on this model. Enabling anti-aliasing can sometimes produce grafic glitches when two anti-aliased BATs are overlapping each other.

      Designed by Isamu Noguchi, The Pylon sits at the base of Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, and anchors the entrance to Hart Plaza, which he also designed with the same spirit of elemental simplicity. The Pylon was inspired by the double helix of DNA. Noguchi said, "All things tend to spiral- water and air. This is a basic thing. It is so basic it is beyond design. It's so basic, it is like a needle." It was built in 1973.
       
      There are two landmark lots included, a 1x1 and a 2x2, which allow you to align The Pylon to either roads or avenues, or to be placed in traffic circles. You can use any combination of these two lots without conflicts.
       

      There are two versions of the .SC4Model file, but you can only install one of them.


       
      Please read the readme for more information.
       
       
      Files Included:
       
      Jasoncw - BSP - The Pylon (AA).SC4Model: This version features anti-aliasing, resulting in smoother borders around the building. Features TruNite. This is the recommended .SC4Model file to install.
       
      Jasoncw - BSP - The Pylon (NAA).SC4Model: The anti-aliasing effect on the other version causes a visual glitch (gameplay is not affected) when the building overlaps certain objects in the game (for example, the Wind Power Plant). If you run into problems with the AA version, you can replace it with this one. Also features TruNite.
       
      Jasoncw - BSP - The Pylon (1x1).SC4Lot:


      Lot Size: 1x1
      Plop Cost: §25,000
      Monthly Cost: §50
      Jasoncw - BSP - The Pylon (2x2).SC4Lot:


      Lot Size: 2x2

      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:
       
      One Flag, Many Nations by Pegasus
      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.
       
       
      Please read the readme for more information.

      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.
       
      Please read the readme for more information.
