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

The only thing I can think of is focusing on making the commercial/tourist area close to the city entrance, that's where I remember hotels spawning naturally when I've made a city similar to what you describe.

  • 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

        The third installment in my Lat Am Project, which seeks to revive and remaster forgotten latin american content from various creators. This pack brings to you 9 lots featuring 8 building models from LBT members Elegost/Berethor07 and Tcxalapa. These are all latin american historic buildings; this pack's contents range from small hostels to the Grand Diligencias Hotel from the city of Veracruz, Mexico. They're perfect for an old city centre!
        There's medium and high wealth commercial services and a couple of medium wealth offices, plus a residential version for the hotels and hostels. The lots come in 2x2, 2x3, 4x3 and 4x4 lots, and develop on low, medium and high density zones. They are modded so that they only grow when the “Chicago” tileset is selected (in the building styles menu), you can control where and when to develop them this way. Ingame, they will also show the name of the building in Spanish or Portuguese if your SimCity 4 is installed in any of these languages, If it is installed in any other language the names will show in English.
        If you want to plop them you can use the LotPlop command and search for them between your commercial buildings, the lots follow the default naming convention. You'll need either of the avaliable Extra Cheats dlls.
        You can check the included bilingual documentation for a full catalogue and more info on stats and so on.
        Dependencies
        Make sure you download and install the files marked as essential in your Plugins, if you don't, you will get brown boxes instead of the actual buildings! Some textures will also be missing. The files marked as optional add details to the lots, although they're not strictly necessary, installing them is recommended to get the full detailing.
        Essential:
        LBT Colonial models by Elegost LBT Colonial models by tcxalapa LBT Mega Texture Pack Optional:
        LBT Mega Prop Pack vol 01 BSC Mega Props CP vol 01 (Requires registration on SC4Devotion's LEX, LEX and SC4D forums accounts are different) Romualdillo Props vol 01 (Also requires LEX registration) Other recommended downloads
        This set of buildings will mix nicely with other content made by this creators:
        Adrianor Debussyman Harishna Maloskero Notes
        I did not make the model(s) and do not claim any credit for them, all credit goes to Elegost/Berethor07 and Tcxalapa. However, I did give the buildings their stats and made lots for them, you can edit those lots or the descriptor files however you want, for personal use. You can't redistribute any of the included content, but you can use it to make new creations. The modding of this buildings was made using the PIM-X tool, so there shouldn't be any problem with these buildings throwing the game off balance. If you run into any issues, or want to see other things I'm working on, pay a visit to my lot thread in Simtropolis, you can also PM me there @Edvarz. Enjoy!

        Many users of my Industry Quadrupler have requested a similar mod for Commercial Services. I originally created this mod almost seven years ago , but apparently never uploaded it here at Simtropolis, so I'm correcting that oversight now.
        This mod allows you to double the number of jobs in all commercial service buildings, and I've provided alternates that allow you to triple the jobs from the largest ones and quadruple the jobs in the malls. The service buildings in the game are a little closer to reality in jobs provided than the industrial buildings were, so I didn't see a need to quadruple them all. As always with my mods, see the included readme file for full details.
        I have no plans to do a similar mod for commercial office; there is no need since the capacities of the office buildings are much more in line with reality.
        This mod requires Rush Hour/Deluxe.

        Ever been to a Chinese Takeout, where things were just "not right"? Well, welcome to Sum Ting Wong. There are some shady deals going on here, not enough for the police to really crack down, but just enough that they aren't healthy for the neighborhood.
         Lot Details and Information Growable Versions : The growable versions of this lot will be built by your Sims when the appropriate zone is provided.
        Lot size: 1 x 3, 1 x 2 tiles , Commercial Services Building Style(s): New York, Chicago, Houston, Euro Growth Stage: 2 Occupants: 15 Cs Dependency: BSC Essentials (v1.0)
        Cori Edit: Tweaked font size from itty bitty to readable and added dependency linky.

        Good Day Guys,
        I love random placing commercial buildings like these below. But when the city runs abit for a while. It turns like all buildings look the same..


        Like this... Below here are the commercial buildings I dont want to see.. is there anyway to stop having the same re building buildings... I like to see random and not all the same in a row...
        btw I am using a plop mod that allows to force $$ to build the city.
