I have drawn three variants (not actually three I just change Theo families' clothes color XD). Try to achieve 88 buildings B) . You will have 10,000 Theo families population. Treat them well!

Because it really is empty in real life XD
There was a height restriction on the buildings due to its proximity to the Kai Tak Airport at the time. Even though Kai Tak Airport is replaced by CLK Airport for many years already, the building height restriction still remains the same. building anything on the roof is prohibited.

I see.

However, height restriction aside (I can put this near my airports), the roof could do with a little texture. It's too plain compared to the real life picture.

right, these high density buildings are so common in Hong Hong. They are almost identical in real life as well. And the existed 2x2 dense TT residential is made by Kevin who is another big Theo fan Hongkonger :fire

Good job overall. But I agree, it needs something on the roof.
Maybe make some ac-units, some ventilation shafts, some power cables or antennas etc. You could also do some divisions on the roof that separate the different sections of the building like the ones visible on one of the google maps images.

I don't think objects are necessary. Maybe adding some textures (like the roof divisions) is enough. The building it is based on is close to the old HK airport, so I'd understand if the rooftop has nothing on it.

right as Kevin said that's a shopping mall (fake ship) ;) Whampoa was a shipyard, so yea, that's a landmark and that's all! Not a real ship 8-)

Yes you are right, this building is heavily influenced by kevin's 2x2 residential building, you can tell (and the topic and posting style are also similar as Kevin if you noticed) ;) My vision is hoping theo players can finally fall in love with different Hong Kong style building. I believe Kevin has the same :)
The building and upcoming buildings are possibly about the same style as Kevin as well cuz we two are from Hong Kong (if you haven't notice yet) :lol: Plus I am a hardcore fans of Hong Kong middle class buildings (real life building) :P
