    I present to you a new small mod, with more realist scaled versions of some blueprints. We all know MonteCristo was French and French people are pride, nothing wrong with some national pride and patriotism, but it gives some strange results ingame. Let me explain this. In the real world the Victorian Tower (part of the Westminster Palace in game) is according to Wikipedia 98.5 Meters while the two front towers of the Notre Dame are 69 Meters . MonteCristo made the following of this, Clearly there is something wrong, It's up to you to find the error

    Now when ingame map of Paris has other versions of the Paris blueprints, more realistically scaled versions present on the map when you start a new City. They probably did this because if they used the original ones they couldn't fit much of Paris on one map in a realistic way. I've made a small mod to make a few realist scaled blueprints available for you to build in game. I created new class files and used the sgbinfiles from the landmarks used on the map. These smaller blueprints build instantly, it's not possible to create a version with the construction stages because there are no sgbin files for the smaller scaled construction stages.

    • All Blueprints can be found in the original Blueprint menu with the UIM custom content menu button turned on
    • All Blueprints get build instantly without the different stages
    • Statistics are the same as for the large one
    • The original over scaled blueprints are not replaced, they are still there
    • This mod should be compatible with all other mods

    The Eiffel Tower Only the base is a little bit smaller, the height already was of a realistic scale, if they made this one higher it would have been to obvious

    But also some American Patriotism, The Statue of Liberty got a shrink, this small one lacks part of the base, but i changed it's collision box so you can make your own base.

    To come back to the start of the following picture presents the original and the small Notre Dame together with the Westminster Palace which is of scale.

    Last but not least, I want to thank pharmist for the original files he made some years ago to skip the blueprints.

    This is very useful, those landmarks are ridiculously oversized.

    Such a small, and big idea! I have Always avoided to place Blueprints as they were totally out of scale. Now I will. Thanks :)
