Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My first attempt at object making. I've always been dissapointed that we only got 3 skyscrapers in Nightlife so I decided to try and make my own.

The first is a simple concrete building with blue glass windows. These windows have a slight reflective quality and although they won't reflect anything like a mirror would, they do give off a nice shine.

The second is a much smaller building with shiny-like concrete and dark windows.

Thank you! I just love them. I always thought that Maxis skyscrapers seemed rather unrealistically huge and way too massive and out of place with the rest of my neighbourhood's buildings.

It doesn't have anything to do with the zip program, obviously they go into the downloads folder I download all my neighborhood decorations and have no problems with it unless they were made for Ep's unmentioned

I can only guess this requires an Ep not mentioned.

No, they only require NL because they were cloned from the NL Buildings. Hmm, I dont know why they're not showing up. Did you look in the right place in the catalog? They're with the other buildings under misc.
