  • Can anone tell what (if any) buildings are available for downlaod that offer a large number of CS jobs ($, $$ and $$$)? In the game most of these buildings are tiny, therefore not very dense, and satisfying demand for them is hard, while demand for the huge CO$$$ skyscrapers available is easily met.

    If you go to the ST exchange, look pon the left and scroll down until you see categories. Look at th second one down and it says commercial. click on this and it will take you to a page which has every commercial lot in the st exchange you can download, there will be a mix, but there are loads of skscrapers there, Dusktroopers are among the best tog et for high demand comercial.

    I keep a detailed list of all the plugins I'm using in a chart on paper (mainly so that if I want a specific building when I'm playing, I know what size to zone). Below are the biggest I have for commercial services.
    Coral Gables Hotel Cs$$$ 522
    Doubletree Hotel Cs$$ 507
    Embassy Hotel Cs$$ 938
    Hotel Stoneleigh Cs$$$ 410
    Kohls Cs$$ 408
    Miami Palm Complex Cs$$$ 440
    Omni Hotel Cs$$$ 471
    Pacifica Palm Hotel Cs$$$ 792
    Shark Hotel Cs$$$ (I don't know but it's a lot)
    SPH Tower Cs$$$ 600
    Winterburne Cs$$$ 941

    All of these are definitely growables with at least 400 jobs and most are also ploppables (I don't download unless a BAT includes a growable). This is by no means an exhaustive list as it doesn't include buildings I decided not to download. Unfortunately though, as you can see, most of large Cs building are hotels.  Makes sense given that hotels are generally the biggest commercial non-office buildings you're going to find, but it still might be a tad limiting. I don't know if it'll help, but I'm working on what will be a whole series of small Cs BATs (my first release of five will probably be ready later this month). The stuff I'm working on may be small (all of them are at least two storeys), but it will hopefully help relieve some of the monotony that appears with small Maxis Cs buildings.
