As far as I know there is no way to do that. You just have to sort through the STEX. It says under the icon of the building whether it is growable or not.

Generally it says +RH (means you need Rush Hour for it to work), SC4BAT (created with the Building Architect Tool), and GROWS, although a lot say PLOP. If you want only growables, just download the growable buildings.

Some come with both a ploppable and a growable, in which case you can delete the ploppable out of your plugins folder.

I am also moving this thread to New Member Information.

Hope this helps!

  • i understand ploppable means you can place it whenever you want through the landmarks/parks/other menu, but is there a way to sort the lots or BATs (kind of a newb to ST, sorry) so I can see only the growable ones? because I just want to download some new buildings like mcdonald's or burger king (these are the only 2 i have right now) to grow instead of generic SC4 buildings. thanks.
