    Note: The original author of this patch is attributed to an inactive modder, banib3 (based on the filename of the patch). This patch technically already "works" with Cities XXL. It is updated to work with the new Cities XXL Search Tags also language localization files added (though they are all in English.) No other changes were made.

    Please note the following:
    • It can be found in the Offices > T3 > Custom Menu
    • The NOZAC tag is included, though since it is not working properly in Cities XXL at this time, the building will "grow" if you auto-zone areas. You have been warned.
    • Only Tested with Mods Updated to Work with Cities XXL.
    • Special thanks to Monty, and Mr.X² for helping me learn how to unpack/pack mods and providing me with a Cities XXL compatible shader.

    I proudly present you my new, most detailed building so far: 8Canada Square, London.
    I must say I tried my best for this one, and I think you gonna love it! Smile
    some wikipedia info:
    8 Canada Square (also known as HSBC Group Head Office, or HSBC Tower) is a skyscraper located at Canary Wharf in London Docklands, Borough of Tower Hamlets. The building serves as the global headquarters for the HSBC Group, the world's largest company by the Forbes Global 2000[1] in 2008 and houses around 8,000 staff.
    The tower was designed by Sir Norman Foster's team of architects. Construction began in 1999 and was completed in 2002. There are 45 floors in the 200 metres (656 ft) high tower, the joint fourth tallest in the United Kingdom with the Citigroup Centre.

    Thanks to CG textures for nice photos.
    I hope you will enjoy this one! I will update it soon (there are few small thing to repair).
    It has very high detailed textures, because I splitted the facades many times, so there shouldn't be any blurs (believe me it was hard work to align everything)...
    it is low poly, around 1,5k polys...
    If you notice some major bugs or some large error, please report it...

    I hope you will post some screenshoots on this thread!
