Description
Most of these unique buildings range from 200m-1km, and they employ lots of people. They will stand out in your city. Most have LoD models, so they look good from far away. Many have a sci-fi theme, or at least scifi-esque futuristic one.

There are also some growables in here, modeled in the same style as the others.

WARNING - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

DO NOT USE THESE ASSETS WITH ANY MOD THAT LETS YOU PLACE MORE THAN ONE "UNIQUE BUILDING."

These may slow performance somewhat; I haven't noticed an impact, but some of the unique building LoDs are high-poly (up to ~3,300 tris). If you notice poor performance, or glitches upon zoom-out, try removing these assets first.

They will also increase the time it takes your game to load, as, it seems, will most assets.

And if the unique buildings light up with the high-crime icon, know that that has to do with how many people the buildings employ. So far as I've been able to tell, the red high-crime meter only afflicts the buildings themselves. And it doesn't seem to produce any ill effects for either the buildings or the cities. I generally just ignore this.

You know, some of the first few buildings I added where Quad's, but of late, I've been unsubscribing many of them. I rather like the clean look that yours have. They fit much better with the kind of city I want to build.

Love these towers! Quick question though, do all of them employ people? Because some don't say anything, while others specify an exact number. If so, is there a general number for those that don't list it, because getting enough workers to fill jobs is kind of an issue for me now. I actually have to hold off using some of your towers that say they employ up to 500 or 600 people because I know my city will have issues once I do.

Nice, I use these in futuristic cities, may the chirp be with you

I find the viewing distance to be too low for my taste. Some skyscrapers don't lose details when zooming out, but these do. A shame

Omg, how in the world have I never seen these!!!! I used them just now in a PIC for the map i just uploaded, and since i dont know how to copy a url on phone, can you send the url to me. It looks great in snowfall
