    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    To specify what is a high rise and what is not:
    I looked for some definitions on wikipedia, and this is what I got:
    • Emporis Standards defines a high-rise as "A multi-story structure between 35–100 meters tall, or a building of unknown height from 12–39 floors."
    • In the U.S., the National Fire Protection Association defines a high-rise as being higher than 75 feet (23 meters), or about 7 stories.
    The last one was made due to the limitations of the ladders of fire trucks; still, if we take the Emporis definition,
    any building above 12 storeys, which on top of that is divided into regular floor levels, qualifies for a high rise (radio towers, churches, etc. ... are not considered as high rises then, but you cannot use any church you want now (only some specific churches/mosques/temples/... can be used at the start), see Buildings List thread; radio towers might be used, though).
    Now you know!!!!!

    OK, I see. For me I follow a Canadian city's and also Skyscrapercity's definition of a highrise, which is above 10 floors while the midrise
    would be 4-10 floors. That would mean a lowrise is something below 4 floors.
    Our country will be neutral from the start but we might be your enemy/ally in the future, who knows. :p
