    You can download the BAT from www.simcity.com once you have registered your copy of SC4 there and logged in. You will also need to get gmax which can be obtained from www.turbosquid.com/gmax, but you will again need to register with that site. Whilst you are on the official simcity site I would also suggest that you grab the updates for SC4 and BAT, and also get yourself the Plugin Manager. Hope that helps.

    You are referring to the Buildiing Architect Tool or BAT.

    BAT is a gmax gamepack available here.  You have to be product registered on that  site and read the instructions very, very carefully.

    The link for gmax is now obsolete.  This is the correct one.  You must install it first and get it licenced from Turbosquid's home address.

    You will also  need Rush Hour or Deluxe, both with Update 1 installed before you can use the BAT and its associated tools.
