    Hello everybody, as I was walking to work the other day it totally dawned on me what the inspiration for the Sports Museum in CXL was: The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. I was wondering if anybody else had ever come across one of the game's vanilla buildings in real life?

    Hey!

    I read this post a few months back, it's a comprehensive list of CXL buildings IRL. It's pretty cool to see where they got their inspiration from so if you got anymore I would love to see! :) Check out the link below:

    I never thought that I'd be posting here but I just randomly went to Russia in Google Maps and then I found this!
    No one can describe how astonished I was to see this as I drop my street view guy to a random place in Moscow...

    This is apparently at Davydkovskaya ul., 1, Moscow, Russia
    And must say it looks too similar to not be the model for one of the elites' high density apartments :D

    Pretty sure no one has found this yet? At least from quick checking of few CXL forums. Can I get a bit proud yet? :p

    And now I have found one of the medium density office buildings.
    This one is the Hamilton GO Centre located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

    This one is the special office building "Plastics Company" which is based on the Nittele Tower (Headquarters of Nippon Television) located in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.
