They look like silos, of which I always approve.  ;) 
Find my power line BAT thread here.
Check out the Noro Cooperative.  What are you waiting for?  It even has electricity.

Yessir! Those Grainsilos will be perfect for the bigger Farms. I have one also in my MFP1 set, but totally different and out of cement, something we see in the western Prairies of Canada.

 &bis&ove it!!

^^ It will fit also in any port (sea or river)
Here are a couple of grain silos in the port at my  hometown, they are owned by Ameropa (an american based grain operator)



Also the silos built over 100 years ago. It's amazing to see the difference in architecture and form.

Hi Fred You stand correct! This one is in Manitoba, its one of Paterson's grain elevators. It is indeed colossal, it can hold 39,000 tons of grains!!

Unconstantean I guess it could be placed in a port setting if you like. I will be making an inland lot for this model. Love those turn of the century ones!!

Continuing with the models construction.....still a lot to do therefore WIP alert!
I placed a man in the render to have a reference of the massive size of this model. There will be a huge bucket elevator mechanical assembly on the top of the superstructure.
Also several miles of piping to go with it and more detailed texturing.

Those monsters might be appropriate for real industrial sized farm lots. Like stage 6 or 7 in the CAM 2.
But how large are the plots of land to fill these? One whole large city tile I guess?

Hi Frank.
That's too bad you don't like it. I thought since the game lacks these types of structures it was high time to introduce them.

The final lot will probably be somewhere around 8X10, not a whole large city tile :D and it will of course be rail served therefore a new freight yard will arise.

Perhaps I should abandon the project?

No!! We need those  for real North-American farms, they're a part of this. I am building one too, different though and maybe even bigger since I plan to fit it on a 16x22 lot. ;)

....similar to this below, should become a train depot also and a harbourlot.

Why would you do that?
Not that we can have enough large city tiles to fill these up... ;) I think we have! So I don't see the problem. I can't wait to see an other industrial/agricultural rail yard...:) So just keep working on these new props!

Thanks in advance!

Which such a monster might not fit into a scenic rural setting, I can certainly see those near a larger city, like the proposed railyard, or a harbour, as Fred suggested. No need to abandon it alright. :)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Don't abandon it!!!!!!!!! My seaport needs it for the big grain terminal. Huge grain silos like this are always near big cities/ports. Were i leave there is one huge silo like the one in Fred's pic at the outskirt of the city and 5 (FIVE) in the seaport. So YES we DO NEED silos like this if we want to build realistic cities. And I have a perfect spot for it in my game so i can't wait to see it released.













the largest of them has a capacity of  200.000 t.

You can always use the siloes in other industries too, as this noodles factory shows:



The location is super crazy btw, as is really close to the city centre and many industrial lots on the sorroundings have been redeveloped as high rise residentials.

Nick

Hi Nick, No no no!
I do like it! I just wonder how large the area of grain fields must be to realistically make a farm that can feed this silo. It's not a silo for a 10x10 tile farm, now isn't it? That's all.
But no, never abandon a project as long as you like the project. Certainly not because some fellow seems to dislike it. And then again: I really like your work. And these silos just make me feel like lotting again and adding to the set I have been making.
But first I wait for Fred....

Hi Fred That is one massive grain elevator &apls I have been adding to mine, a few pipes here and there...

@Tibi Its coming along nicely, thank you!

@Andreas I understand that they are mostly used near ports/industrial areas however here in Canada you will literally find them in the middle of nowhere :D Manitoba and Saskatchewan mostly. Fred can attest to it.
@Unconstantean Those are some great pics by the way! &apls

@matias93 The model I'm making includes the elevator and other trimmings and it will be rendered in one go but I will make a few stand alone mega silos for usage in port areas.

@FrankU It is a storage facility that is rail served. Grains come from 100's of kilometers away, not necessarily from local fields. It can be plopped near a city or in the middle of a field.

I added a few things and its coming along nicely. Again it is still in WIP stages. The most complex part will be on top of the concrete silo set. The bucket elevator and sorting bin with its many pipes going in to every direction just like an octopus :D
Here is a real life sample. The part I'm talking about is the metal nest on the top!


Here is my progress.

Ah sure.... I understand. So it's more of an instrustrial lot then. Dirty? Manufacturing? No High-tech I suppose...
Great project. Good luck with the octopus!
