About the model
One of the first buildings I made and put on the Workshop were the three instances of the Puck Building. I've started to update it quite a few times, but in the end a remodel was better. You can always follow my assetcreations on the Simtropolis forums: http://community.simtropolis.com/forums/topic/68841-darfs-buildings-the-dorilton-new-victory-theater/ or on sketchfab: https://sketchfab.com/sannie01

This model has about 4566 tris and a 4096x512 texture , with a diffuse, shadow, normal, illumination, color and specularmap.This model has a custom LoD, which is about 178 tris with a 512x128 texture, with a diffuse, color, specular, and illumination map.

RICO
If you want this building added to your RICO buildings, add it in the settings menu, under growables. I recommend using the realistic population mod, this will calculate the amount of occupants in the building.


About the building
The Puck Building is a historic building located in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It occupies the block bounded by Lafayette, Houston, Mulberry and Jersey Streets.

An example of the German Rundbogenstil style of Romanesque Revival architecture, the building was designed by Albert Wagner, and was constructed in two parts. The north section was built in 1885–86, and the south addition in 1892–93. The front of the building – on Lafayette Street – was relocated in 1899 when the street – then called Elm Place – was widened, this was supervised by Herman Wagner. The building was rehabilitated in 1983–84 and further renovated in 1995 by Beyer Blinder Belle. The building sports two gilded statues by sculptor Henry Baerer of Shakespeare's character Puck, from A Midsummer's Night Dream, one on the northeast corner at Houston and Mulberry, and one over the main entrance on Lafayette

The building was constructed as the printing facility of J. Ottmann Lithographic Company as a seven-story structure, with a nine-story structure added on in 1892.

The building was the longtime home of Puck magazine, which gave the building its name; Originally founded in St. Louis in 1871, the magazine moved into the building in 1887 and remained there until it ceased publication in 1918.

A June 1887 fire caused significant damage, estimated as high as $30,000, including water damage to the editorial rooms used by Puck magazine. A fire in November caused $50,000 in damage after a can of turpentine caught on fire inside a finishing room where workers were producing Christmas cards.

The building later housed numerous independent printing firms and related printing services such as typesetters and a printing ink company, Superior Printing Ink. The odor of printing ink permeated the building for many years. An office stationery company, S. Novick & Son, once occupied the second floor. Notable among that firm's salesmen was Alger Hiss, the former Assistant Secretary of State, who was brought down in a spy scandal in the 1950s.

And they will miss a few props, doesnt matter that much. I can't be bothered to search a dozen orso times through 1000s of subscribed asssets, which are the same on all my buildings.

You need to include them in the requirements of your asset to be sure. After all, I didn't have them. How would you know who does? Some people may not even realize there are some they don't have, not to mention there are some people who barely even play with additional assets and only subscribe to a few, so how would they know?
