YouTube Headquarters, by Mattb325.


This is an interpretation of the YouTube Headquarters in San Bruno California.

The main changes between the model and the real building are the replacement of the green roof and roof lanterns by a corrugated roof (unfortunately the undulating green roof simply didn't translate well into the SC4 viewing angle) and the main entrance area canopy. 

The garden berm area at the front, despite being part of the main structure has been given a lot of seasonal props and will change with the seasons providing much additional interest. Despite tight-fitting lods, given how the game works with this sort of raised prop placement within the main building footprint, there is some visual slicing of the props display (as shown in the 2nd screenshot). It is minor, only affects one rotation and is unavoidable. 

I have made this as a new type of 12x5 MEGA reward lot which looks equally good placed in either a dense downtown environment or in a more suburban or even industrial area. 

Placing this lot will greatly drive demand in the following sectors: CO§§; CO§§§; R§§; R§§§ and I-H, with the largest up-tick in the CO§§, CO§§§ and  R§§ sectors. Therefore, judicial placement of this lot will help alleviate demand caps and, when combined with adequate services, will even combat negative demand. The building has strong park and landmark rating effects in addition to the aforelisted cap-busting properties. It is modded on the in-game Movie Studio template (it doesn't replace the movie studio or any relotted version thereof) and despite the many desirable and beefed up benefits costs nothing to place or maintain. It does not require any pre-existing conditions to be met, and can be placed more than once. 

The building itself also directly provides 2,972 highly desirable civic jobs across all wealth levels.

There is no restriction as to how often this lot can be placed and has a positive effect on surrounding commercial and residential development.

This download contains TWO file types in two seperate folders; one for dark nite users (and other night-time darkening mods, such as Gizmos or Mashty's night-mods) and one for the standard Maxis nite. 

You must choose only one file - depending on which version you use. If you are unsure whether you have a night-darkening mod installed, then choose the Maxis night version. 

If you use the dark nite version, you will need a dark nite mod. (

Nightbird615 Matt, you always do great work! Can you please work your magic and give us some NY Times/Vegas flashy casino's/buildings with flash marquees to add glitz to the city? Flashing neon billboards? Christmas stuff? Something to liven up the cities? :) Just a thought. If anyone can, you can! 2018-07-11

evarburg Thank you again. It's wonderful how you always come up with something new. (Too bad for the green roof, but we can always parkify around it :-) ) 2018-07-07
