Users can give likes to as many buildings as they want For submitting the nominations you can use pictures from the internet or from the SimCity 3000 STEX section, play the game and make a screenshot (please note the name of building as well) or check this selection of SimCity 3000 buildings found here (with names):
For BATers: This project is open to all BATers, if you want to participate, post here or send me a PM. Your involvement can be as small or big as you like. There will be two rounds of due dates for the submission of the buildings, targeted for March and April respectively.

So far we have for creating BATs: JP Schriefer, MushyMushy, Diego del Llano, jasoncw, mattb325, nofunk and myself
Happy submitting and good luck!
I made a few screenshots of SC3K buildings as a reference (create for the SC3K to SC4 Bday BAT Project).
Feel free to add your own.

I'm interested in emulating SimCity terrain generation for a LEGO project I am working on. Could someone explain the differences between SC3K and SC4 terrain?
IIRC, SC3K has three vertical slope levels, and can only model right angles and 45 degree angles. How are things different in SC4? Does SC4 also limit you in this way?
This subject is something I have thought about for a long time. I love all kind of city building games, but SC3000 has always been my favourite. Why is this? Well, other than some childish nostalgia I think map size has a lot to do with it. I have played a decent amount of SC4, but I have always been frustrated about the small map sizes. I know you can build large regions in SC4, but these regions consists of smaller independent maps that are rendered independently. This has always irritated me with SC4, since I never had the feeling that I was building something very large in one picture.
I know the map size in SC3000 isn't very large either, but I do think it is easier to build a metropolis like city in one map in this game.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. If there is something I have missed about SC4s map sizes, I would love to hear. SC4 is such a nice game, the graphics are awesome and way more realistic than SC3000. The community and downloads has always been bigger and better for SC4, so I would love to make a switch to the game, but I never think I will unless one can build large cities in ONE map.
Do you guys know something that I don't?
