All these BATs are indeed very nice!!!

So you are updating these BATs. I have a small request, can you modify one of the models to match the ingame Fennel Corp (a NY style CO$$) as far as the bldg/base layout is concerned? It tends to overtake my cities at some development stages (yes, I do use the building styles). If you make a new model and building exemplar, and add it into the same bldg family as Fennel Corp and similar stats, this would halve occurences! No lotting work is required, as the bldg will be growing on maxis lots (the same as Fennel Corp), and believe me, they are really many!

I'm doing the same work for two other very annoying buildings, Chalmers Co and Modde Inc. I'm making three additional compatible (but not identical, not even similar) BATs for each of the two. Though these buildings belong to the NY and Houston tilesets respectively, Maxis has modded them to grow in all four styles. Mine are quite generic, so I will set them to grow in all four styles too. I'll post pics when I have something ready.

Girafe- Thank you!!! I am a fan your work. ;D

cogeo- Thank you!!! I mostly want to update the Worthington Apartments textures Sunset Apartments textures and work on Kingsbridge Apartments. What buildings you you want me to work on. Do you think it would be good to just create a new building? One thing about this thread here it does not say Residentail so that mean I can work on commercial, industries and other things.

NYBT Bainbridge Row

I'm going to get to the night light lights soon, they should have been finished but I have been a little lazy. O yea, these are slope friendly.

It's nice to see that you've set up a thread here!  It's nice to have more choices available for medium and dense Residential to build in those inner-city areas.  The textures are beautiful, and the other details (such as window A/C units) add so much to the buildings.

baconrocky- Thank you!! For the Kingsbridge Apartments I will not make a corner bat for it because there's not a corner building that looks like it, unless I create my own verson of what it may look like but it will take so long, I'm trying to fix some things, but I have to move forward. I would love to release about twenty bat's this year but I do not know how that's going to be possible if I keep up with the slow speed.

wwecruz- Thank you!!!!

NYBT Bainbridge Row

Here's is some in game images I hope you like it, another thing I hope you like is the stairs on the corner building. The corner lot will not take really slight slopes because of being on a corner lot, but it will take some slope. I have not merge the night model with the day because I'm lazy, but I'm going to get to it. the trees on the lot will be removed, I just wanted to try something new that's all.

NYBT unnamed project

Here's a new Bronx apartment I was working on today, the modeling has gotting far. This bat I made came from the past from the NYBT thread, I lost the old model so I decided to make a new one. I have thought that it just might be a good idea for me create a new building everyday this week, just the weekdays and on the weekend I can finish up on the bats, one of my main jobs I always wanted to do is to work fast but have good or great quilty on my bats, I do not want to rush, but I want to feed you downloaders with something that is truly need in the STEX, I just hope this work. What really slow things down is making the textures and making custom LOD's, I want my LOD's to be skin tight on my slope buildings, if not things will no look good.

I thought of holding the Bainbridge Row until Gwail finish the NYBT quries. If it takes to long I may not have no choice but to upload them. everything is finished, just need to make a read me and a installer. When it comes to making installers, I think I need a person to dubble check my read me's and installers for any errors.
