    Wonderful scenarios! This time my favorite one was the Mount Rainier, I think it's so beautiful. Its wallpapers are the best https://bit.ly/2I9rb5n

    @Tyberius06 Hello Well I'm always being asked about unfinished works and I always reply almost the same: I really want to finish everything I started, but it's not so easy, especially with big models like Maracanã, Copacabana Palace or, more recently, the Singer Building, because they require a lot of research. Besides my lack of time that sometimes happens, as in this year, sometimes I just don't feel motivated to continue some work at that time, which is why I have so many projects in progress. From almost a year ago I don't start anything new - besides a building to the SC3K project - to try and finish the ones I've already started. I must say it's frustrating to me to be part of that project and still have not released anything, so those buildings are definitely on my plans.

    I forgot @Odainsaker is always discovering buildings on the Maxis References thread, next time you're not allowed to participate Just kidding, you did great! I think this building wasn't an easy one to find. Very interesting you already knew about it for such a long time, btw that link with the other buildings will be very useful, so thank you A brief history of that block I also posted on SC4Devotion: These buildings were demolished in the late sixties to make way for Zuccotti Park. In order for the 1 Liberty Plaza to be built (on the block where the Singer Building and the City Investing Building were located), a green area must also be created so as not to violate the zoning law. Then the builder of Liberty Plaza also bought all the buildings of the two adjacent blocks to make the park - it is worth remembering that before the construction of the park that block was divided in two by Temple Street, which no longer exists. The buildings from left to right are: North American Trust Company Building, Liberty National Bank and finally the Washington Life Building. An interesting curiosity is that there was an owner on the ground floor of the North American Trust Co. Building who refused to leave the place with his restaurant, so everything was demolished on the block but the first floor of the building. That episode delayed for years the complete construction of the park. I miss BATting, I'll make an effort to do something about that SC3K building.

    Hi, ESP15 Since January I'm not able to work so much on my projects. The only thing I did this year was finish that Portland building and start the Triangle Terrace to the SC3K Project. So I don't know when I'll be back on track here. Maybe tomorrow, maybe in 2 months, I really don't know. That last mysterious building I posted here has 2 other buildings almost finished on the same block which I didn't show. Now I'm thinking about bring them here this weekend in a new render to see if someone will be able to guess them right while I can't update my works
  6. A 26-story building located in downtown São Paulo collapsed after being consumed by a fire. The building was abandoned some years ago and was invaded and occupied by several families with no financial conditions, some of them immigrants who came from other countries. Fortunatelly firefighters did a good job and took almost everyone out of the building before it collapsed. http://abcnews.go.com/International/massive-high-rise-fire-building-collapse-brazil-dead/story?id=54846500 https://g1.globo.com/sp/sao-paulo/playlist/videos-predio-desaba-durante-incendio-em-sao-paulo.ghtml#video-6702630-id A very sad moment was when this guy was almost being rescued when the building collapsed. People said he managed to get out of the building earlier, but he went back to try to save people on the top floors:
  7. New York City - Landmarks & Mosaics

    Yaaay! New York in your hands again and you didn't disappoint. Wonderful pictures Interesting that today earlier I was watching a WTC documentary made some months before 9/11. It was nice to see your recreation of the nowadays site, thanks for that.
  8. U.S. Skylines

    This is sooooo cool! They all look great. I'd love it if you made this a series
  9. San Francisco

    Wonderful pictures! San Francisco is one of the cities I wish to visit someday.
  10. SimCity 3000 BAT project

    I suggest you to use Google Earth, it has a tool to measure distances in 2D and 3D. It's not 100% accurate, but it's very useful sometimes.
  11. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    I like Moonlight's El Rail. You are able to install it through the NAM.

  14. Can't find it?... Ask here!

    A bit off-topic here, but since we were talking about 270 Park Avenue. Funny thing this website using a preview from @PBGV103 to illustrate the article. Maybe there's someone here related with it?

    I hope it won't happen, but I've bad feelings about it If this building be demolished it will be a historic event. To this day, the Singer Building still carries the "title" of the highest building to be demolished.
