Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After thinking over about what might not be created already for the sims, i suddenly got the idea to do a mesh for the neighborhood objects!
And so i present to you the most famous building of this planet, "The Empire State Building".
It isn't a exact copy, cause i tried to make the file not to heavy, but i think it's pretty close!

This is a building just like the 3 neighborhood skyscrapers that came with maxis, only somewhat bigger!
It took me alot of work to get the textures right, but i think it was well worth the effort.
This is best viewed from within a lot close to the building because of it's size!
However if you have a camera hack that can zoom further out then maxis default camera then you can view it also in full from within the neighborhood.

This building does not replace any maxis buildings, so the other 3 are also still available.
You find it in Neighborhood decorations/misc.

You only need the nightlife expansion for it to show up.

Just like any object open the rar-file and place the package file in your downloads folder!

Have fun with this new object!
