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,
Paraffine

  • 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

        I've decided to embark upon a journey to redo a select few of my previous relots. The lots in this pack have all been redone to be different then the relots I originally uploaded. This pack consists of models from @SimGoober , @MarcosMX, @nos.17 and others.
        A few of these lots will require lotplop.

        MANY of you may already have these lots. But because of my relot plans and I uploaded in packs for the commercial relots, here's all my commercial relots that I previously uploaded to the STEX that I don't not plan to redo. If a commercial building I previously worked on is not in here that is because it will a part of a new and updated commerical relot pack or someone else has relotted it.
        These are for those of you who don't have these.

        I wanted to make a realistic Kroger and it basically spiraled into making an entire strip mall based on your feedback. I also choose brands in the plaza that not only fit in this low-end shopping center, but also have used specific brands which I felt SimCity was lacking. 
        A couple of props are included in this pack for the plaza to work properly.
        12x18 lot and found in the landmark menu. There is also three street-enabled connections.
