    hello mod makers, i am OfficialTron117 and i hope you can help make some of these awesome buildings for cities XL platinum.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now i live in San Antonio, TX. We have a pretty impressive skyline. and i really want to make these buildings into game content but i don't have the skills or the money to use the programs...

    Anyway, i hope you can do some of these but its a large list...

    im just gonna go through with pics and the sketchup models i found.

    -Tower of the Americas

    I'm sorry i can't find a 3d model, but someone on that simtropolis place made one for simcity i think.

    -Alamodome

    still no model, i tried to avoid these but they are still awesome buildings...

    and there was one decoration like a urban statue that i also wanted...

    -La Antorcha de la Amistad (spanish for "The Torch of Friendship")
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Antorcha_de_la_Amistad

    Welcome to the Forums!
    First post in the mod request thread section, and you directly thought
    of having some 3d Warehouse Models in line to please modders
    (unfortunately for you, I am not a modder)!
    My hat goes off to you!
    And on top of that, I like that Grand Hyatt.
    About the Tower and the Alamodome, I don't know whether
    they have a high chance to be modded, though.
    Think about that there are possible structures that
    could be placed instead, e.g. the Old Trafford Stadium...

    thanks for the welcome, i really like citiesxl and its great to have a site to enjoy it more.
    also thanks for getting back so quickly
    i made sure to add the warehouse file cause i looked at some of the other threads before i posted and it seemed like a good idea.
    about the low chance for the modding. and the replacements, I've considered some of the buildings that could replace these two, i am living in SA, born and raised and i just really wanted to carry the awesome buildings into the game and have fun with them there and not just buildings that could substitute. also, the buildings that would be replacements don't really meet what the real thing is. like the Alamodome, its not just a stadium like Old Trafford, its more of a sports/events center. they have concerts and games and parties there. its not just a stadium. its kinda like a convention center (even though the city's real convention center is right across the street under the tower) and as for the tower, the tower would be a mixture of the observatory tower and the panoramic restaurant. plus its a little bigger than the space needle mod.

    so anyway, i have thought about it and i have most mods that could count for that, but it just wont feel right.
    so do you know any modders who are looking for a project that may be interested that i can contact on XLnation or should i just wait and see who comes along?
    thanks for your time!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR
