Hi there,

I'm having a problem getting hotels to spawn; I'm building a gambling/culture city that is going pretty well, at the moment the city have 5 casinos (1 luxury hotel full with $$$ gambling addons, 2 sleek and 2 cheap with full $ and $$ gambling addons), all the 3 possible landmarks (Edificio Copan, Empire State Building and Sydney Opera House) and the Pro Stadium; the city have all forms of public transportation except streetcars (3 ferry and boat terminal, one train station and 1 municipal airport with 4 passengers addons and 4 runways); the city have a draw of 65k/85k with more then 1k tourist/h and it's going decently (1kk$/day profit) but I'd like to get some hotels.
The problem is that no matter what I do they somehow refuse to spawn; I tried running the Sydney and Pro Stadium events everyday for quite some time, bulldozing some medium density commercial from all wealth class every day and the city is not at the beginning of year 6 but not a single hotel spawned; I could plop them with the plop mod but before doing that I'd like to get some hotels to spawn naturally.
Is there anything that prevent hotels from spawning while playing offline?
Am I doing something wrong or am I being just incredibly unlucky?

Thanks in advance for helping,

  • At the moment they are the closest I could place them to casinos in order to reduce traffic and due to the fact I read somewhere EA/Maxim reduced with a patch the radius within whom casinos and Landmarks make commercial turn into hotels, to prevent the problem of too many buildings becoming hotels that lots of people were complaining about; I'll tra placing them near the entrance and I'll let you know

        Created this Meijer using various assets in the workshop with custom signage from DearLeader2000, and assets from KingLeno and CrazyGlueIt. Really cool how it turned out

        This is a pack of skybridges/skywalks/skyways for your commercial or industrial areas. 
        I advice you to place these carefully, to get the right visual qualities, they can be a bit tedious to place at first, but find a suiting 
        spot and thery will fit in quite nicely. 
        There's 5 different models:
        Round modern skywalk.
        Square modern skywalk.
        Industrial metal skywalk with graffiti.
        Industrial skywalk with arched windows with white brick.
        Industrial skywalk with arched windows with red brick.
        Industrial skywalk with square windows.

        works like any bus stop but with a capacity of
        15 000 for street
        20 000 for road
        40 000 for avenue
        Thank you to: Simhottody for advice and putting up with me constantly bugging him about renders...
        B22rian and Tyberius for revamping the stats and functionality of these lots.

        So I've been messing around in an attempt to come up with what I'm calling a New Age/Occult Pack of buildings - tarot and palm readers, psychics, and new age bookstore and occult shop.  It doesn't seem like anything like that has been done on the STEX, and I thought it would add a little flavor to some of the lower wealth commercial areas.

        I'm aiming for CS$ for the smaller, more modest ones - the psychic, the tarot reader, and the palm reader.  Perhaps CS$$ for the bookstore and shop, since they're a bit more substantial, two-story, and could be considered less seedy.  Ultimately, I'd love to add some form of NIMBY effect, since a lot of these types of businesses (particularly those one story psychic type shops which look like they're run out of someone's front parlor) are considered undesireable by some folks.

        Here they are in day and night view - I'm hoping to add and/or revise some of the signage, and the lighting has just barely begun, as I've just been getting the models and textures together.  

        And while we're talking about lighting, I have a few lighting and window questions which you guys will probably be able to answer...

        - how do you do neon?
        - how do you do an illuminated sign?  (not so much neon as plastic or another translucent material lit from behind)
        - what manner of lighting is more effective than just adding "nitelite" to the front of the windows?  I find that works great for smaller windows, but anything large it looks like a cheat...
        - on large windows with printing or signage in them, how you light them as well as retain the silhouette of that lettering or signage?

        Any input is appreciated.  And thanks for all those folks who downloaded Andy's Gun Works (my first BAT) from the STEX...hope it pops up in your low wealth commercial district soon!
