  2. Library

    From the album Pclark06 pic dump

  3. U.S. Bank (Library) Tower

    Version 2.0.0


    U.S. Bank Tower, formerly Library Tower and First Interstate Bank World Center, is a 1,018-foot (310.3 m) skyscraper at 633 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles, California. It is the third tallest building in California, the second tallest building in LA, the fifteenth tallest in the United States, the third tallest west of the Mississippi River after the Salesforce Tower and the Wilshire Grand Tower, and the 92nd tallest building in the world, after being surpassed by the Wilshire Grand Center. Because local building codes required all high-rise buildings to have a helipad, it was known as the tallest building in the world with a roof-top heliport from its completion in 1989 to 2004 when Taipei 101 opened. It is also the third tallest building in a major active seismic region; its structure was designed to resist an earthquake of 8.3 on the Richter scale. It consists of 73 stories above ground and two parking levels below ground. Construction began in 1987 with completion in 1989. The building was designed by Henry N. Cobb of the architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and cost $350 million to build. It is one of the most recognizable buildings in Los Angeles, and often appears in establishing shots for the city in films and television programs.

  4. Rapson Library

    Version 1.0.0


    Rapson Library is an early 60s academic building based heavily on the University of Minnesota's Rapson Hall, located on the east bank of the Twin Cities campus. It is named for modernist architect Ralph Rapson, who was the head of the university's architecture department from 1954 to 1984. Though Rapson was responsible for a sizeable number of modernist works, perhaps he is best known for his Riverside Plaza apartment complex, which received mainstream attention when it was featured in the Mary Tyler Moore Show. To be clear, the real-world Rapson Hall was not designed by Ralph Rapson, but rather by Thorshov and Cerny, another Minneapolis-based firm. As the title suggests, I have modded this building as a library. One dependency is required - Volume 1 of the Cycledogg BSC texture pack. As always, I have included two options for the night scene: one that fits with the game's default night mode, and one that makes use of Simfox's delightful darknite mod. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you have or bugs you find. You can also check out my current projects here.
  5. Clerkenwell Library

    Version 1.0.0


    This small wall-to-wall library is inspired by a real life building, Karl Marx Memorial Library, in Clerkenwell, London. This is no political statement, I just like its Georgian look and it fits into my current playstyle. There are not that many historical libraries for wall-to-wall urban environment, so I decided to create one. I have made two versions, a grey stucco functional education library and an additional red brick high wealth office building. The real life building is from Georgian era, built around 1769, but has been heavily modified during its life. It has served many functions, including as a shop. During 1980's the building was renovated and the original look was restored. This BAT is based on how facade looks today. HD model with Maxis and Dark Night version. Night versions share IDs, so if you have both versions in the city, those will most likely conflict. It has a custom foundation, so it is slope friendly. I have included in a 1x1 FAR angle option of the Library building. The FAR model is included in the file and perhaps someone can do a better lotting than I did. Simmer2 has been helpful with the lotting and he has provided a custom texture for the lots. The texture dat file is included in the download. Thank You Simmer2. The props are mostly HD to go with the HD BAT.

  7. Hi, I'm looking for a library I used to use in all my cities - it was a small lot, and it looked like an old victorian mansion - I'm having trouble finding it now, with a new install of SimCity 4. Anyone remember this one or where I might find it? Thanks! - AG
  8. OK so the problem is very simple. I want to set the EQ of a particular suburb(currently pop 3500 - planned about 30000, mostly low density houses) to about 40 to 80(the upper end COULD be about 90 but not any triple digits) This, however, seem to be harder than expected. I thought elementary schools raised the EQ up to a certain level, at which colleges/museums/highschools take its place, but I was wrong. They worked on an age group, not on the EQ level. So the point is this. How can I retain EQ levels around the 40 to 80 mark, so that the ID and especially, IM demands stay intact? It's a bit of a dilemma here, since I tried placing schools only in a certain area, which meant that area all found CO and HT jobs, the dumb guys went to ID and CS$(not that I hate CS$, unlike many others) and no one works for the factories. *I don't really care about CO jobs in this place, somewhere else like my capital/2nd city is a good place to put them The main problem is getting my sims to work at the factories, next door. HELP!!! PS: If you can, could you please tell me how to get a balance of $/$$/$$$ in the suburbs? Right now they're building nothing but R$$, meaning that about 3200 of my pop is R$$. The rest 300 is R$ (planning to develop $$$ later with clinics, and of course, some schools)
  9. Anderson Hall

    Version 1.0


    I'll open by saying that I have a personal hatred for this building. I made this model as a way of coping with the fact that, despite my absolute best efforts, I have been unable to avoid this building. I'll sign up for a class in another lecture hall, and then check my schedule the day before classes begin only to see that the lecture has been moved to this soulless behemoth. The dim fluorescent lighting, crumbling concrete interior, leaky ceilings, propensity to act as a staging ground for muggings, and overpowering musty smell all contribute to an ambiance that is unique to late 60s university buildings built for pennies on the dollar. To make matters worse, none of the four "pods" visible on the building are connected by any sort of hallway except for one in the basement, meaning that one must often exit the building entirely in order to travel between sections. During Minnesota winters, this isn't the most desirable setup. A quick visit to the building's Foursquare page gives some excellent insights into the building's many selling points: "Most depressing building on campus." "What monster designed this building? Surely someone with a strong hatred of people." "Remember to pay attention to what door you are going in because each door only let's [sic] you access certain classrooms!" "If you enjoy flesh eating and antibiotic resistant diseases, I urge you to use the restrooms in this hall." Anyway, despite being blacklisted by the university a few years back, it seems Anderson Hall is here to stay. It contains several full-sized lecture halls, making it a valuable commodity that is very difficult to effectively replace. Perhaps I overreacted - I suppose it does a good job of fulfilling its intended role, and I'd probably better just get used to it. At least the lecture halls have plenty of leg room. When you get away from the building for a while (as is fortunately an option for me this semester), you can actually begin to appreciate the building's place in history. In the early 60s, the University of Minnesota was looking to expand its campus. The west bank of the Mississippi River (directly across the Washington Avenue Bridge from main campus) was deemed a desirable site for this expansion, though a large swath of the existing neighborhood needed to be demolished to make room. Anderson Hall (1967) is just one of the many buildings constructed on west bank, the majority of which were designed by renowned firm Setter Leach & Lindstrom. Due to the building's rather generic appearance, I have modded it as both a college building and a library. Both sit on a 2x6 lot. As always, both Maxisnite and Darknite versions are available - download and install only one at a time, or you'll wish you had never been born. The Darknite version requires Simfox's mod available here. I sincerely hope this BAT brings you far more joy than its real life counterpart has brought me over the past few years. As always, please leave feedback below! Thank you all for your support, and click here to see my current projects!
  10. Version


    This is the second entry into my V2 series of BATs, where I improve upon old creations for re-release.

Removing the old version is preferable, but optional. • The original version can be found here: M. Maria Branch Library (Original) Installation Instructions: 1. Download either the DarkNite (DN) or MaxisNite (MN) version. If you're unsure, choose the MN version. 2. Unzip the .zip and move its contents to Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins. 3.

It holds one of the largest collections in Mexico. It is in a group of landmark buildings that make the Campus a World Heritage site. The library opened its doors for the first time on April 5, 1956. It currently holds around 400,000 books. The outside of the library building is covered with several murals, which were painted by Juan O'Gorman. The tiles were brought from many different parts of the country because a large number of colors were needed for the construction. North Wall: Pre-Hispanic Past This mural represents the ancient past of Mexican Culture, having a rough representation of what Mexico City was originally. It contains a River that encompasses what used to be the Center and on the border the symbols for the different surrounding neighborhoods are represented. In the Center a Tenochtitlan representation recreating the Mexico City foundation legend, in which the natives were supposed to found their city in the place where they find an eagle eating a snake and standing in a cactus.
