    I figured I'd make my own wish list of building requests.

    1. High rise corner building pieces (offices and residential).
    I had some others, but I can't remember them as of now, but I'll just edit and update this thread when it comes to mind.

    I must say however; I do miss the old main single mod request thread for everyone's requests in one thread. One of the reasons I say this is because I noticed how most of these requests don't even get any views whatsoever. I think the single mod request thread was a much more efficient system. I also miss the active threads notification system on the home page.

    I suppose I can't edit my posts. Someone really oughtta fix that.

    Anyways....here's one of the corner buildings I would like.
    It's the "Sentinel Building" here in San Francisco.

    I'll post more here if I think of anything else.

    You get 20 minutes to edit a post after its created, after that no more edits. It has to be that way since it would not be fair if an original poster changed his words long after folks started responding

    Why is that not fair? I'm sorry, but I personally don't like that.

    IcyHot has this policy to avoid me from deleting everything I wrote
    just with one mouse-click :p

    I actually like the Sentinel Building and would love to see it in the game!
    What kind of angle does it have?

    I'm not sure, but I would kinda prefer it to be at regular in-game default angle, which I think would be like a 30 degree angle, even though that might not be totally realistic. I'm sure you can look it up somewhere.

    Ok, I gotta few more for my list:

    1. More landmarks and furniture pieces without collision box (such as the Washington Monument) to enable placement of them over other objects and roundabouts.
    2. I asked for these a long time ago, but it couldn't hurt to ask for them again. They are such beauties and they truly have their own unique style to them - San Francisco Victorian style "Painted Ladies" homes: 1093427202_eab664873a.jpg

    More...

    And of course, as requested before, but again, it can't hurt to ask again (I cannot believe no one has made any of these), department stores! Perhaps even a series/pack of all of these:

    More...

    Perhaps also a shopping plaza/strip mall set where we can create our own shopping plazas/strip malls piece by piece.

    Lastly; a zoo set, so we can create our own zoos, perhaps with animated animals/exhibits if possible?

    Ok, first off, I know I've already made a lot of requests, and the following requests make up another handful, but I don't rush any modders, they're only requests and they can be made at any time. I suppose I can be patient, that is; IF a modder decided to make them, but they're all really nice buildings and they would add so much to the game:

    • Moscow buildings:
    1. Aliye Parusa: I found these residential buildings on Skyscrapers.com (http://www.skyscrapers.com/aliye-parusa-moscow-russia) and they are quite something. I was thinking someone could make something almost like them instead of the exact replicas only with more glass on the edges where the blue glass is on these buildings.

    2. Michael Castle - Moscow, Russia

    3. Peter of Grand Cascade - Moscow, Russia

    4. Catherine Palace (only perhaps with a different color scheme) - Moscow, Russia

    5. St. Isaac's Cathedral, Moscow, Russia

    6. Cathedral of Christ the Saviour - Moscow, Russia

    7. GUM Department Store - Moscow, Russia

    8. The Seven Sisters of Moscow, Russia

    • State University Main Building - Moscow, Russia

    • Hotel Ukraina - Moscow, Russia

    • Ministry of Foreign Affairs Building - Moscow, Russia

    • Kudrinskaya Square Building - Moscow, Russia

    10. Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre - Moscow, Russia

    11. Triumph Palace - Moscow, Russia

    • Chinese Buildings
    1. Zifeng Tower - The 8th Tallest Building in the World - Located in Nanjing, China (http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/building/zifeng-tower/165):

    2. Two International Finance Center - Hong Kong, China (http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/building/two-international-finance-centre/205)

    Again, I know it's a lot, and I don't necessarily expect anyone to make all of these (although I admit it would be nice), but they're up for anyone to make if they so choose whenever they so choose to do so.

    These are a few more buildings that are grand monumental landmarks here in my city by the bay; San Francisco and they are indeed masterpieces:

    BTW- What's so great about Coit Tower is that some of the very best views you can get of San Fran if not thee BEST you can behold at the top of Coit Tower.

    hmm... some really interesting requests you got there... :)
    if you can provide some textures i might be interested in some of them (that actually doesent mean ill take your requests ;) )

    PS: if you want to start modding yourself, that coit tower might be an interessting project for you ;)

    I wouldn't know where to find the textures, would you?

    Thanx for at least considering taking the requests, whether you'll fulfill them or not.

    I have a feeling modding would take too much time away from my daily activities and even if I did modding on my own time, I probably would never get anything done, plus; I won't lie, it sounds too complicated.

    It's like an observation tower on the top of "Telegraph hill" in San Francisco. The sights are breathtaking on all sides of the hill and the tower and the trail around it is a very tranquil setting, esp at night. I was actually there just last night during Halloween and it truly is peaceful and nice, a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city in the big city full of forest trees and all that good stuff.

    Here's some more pics:

    More fountain and monument pieces (but esp fountains) and pathways that automatically transition into staircases with land elevation differences.

    well, dont finding nice textures is the reason why im abandoning about 80% of my projects im starting...
    and yeah, modding is quite time consuming.. but its kind of a hobby, so it is ok :) and btw it doesnt matter how long it would take to finish it.. it would be worth it ;)
