Default Tower of Babel - Ideas for making it better/ more useful? :)
Hi everyone!

I've been working on a big theme set lately but I gave it a lot of time these days, I obsessed a bit about it, and I need a little break. So this morning I have started working on a new project - a Lot - inspired by a building in another game I play.

So, without further ado, here's my Tower of Babel, I'd like to hear what you think of it. I think it is a good start, but now that its first version - and the outer shell - is done, I feel like it would be a bit boring to make it just a regular residential lot, but I am not sure what to do with it.

If it was a community lot, what should it be for? Any ideas?

Here it is anyway.

The Tower of Babel should definitely be community. You can leave the upper tiers empty because they'll be hard to play anyhow. If it were me, I'd be inclined to make it a temple, school, or community center - a place for meetings with everybody talking and nobody listening.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

I think you can decorate it with plants/vegetation on the structure to add more asymmetry to the building and make it look like a lost temple. So far, it looks good.

Awesome! Everybody talking and nobody listening. That's so much exactly the meaning of the Tower of Babel! Maybe a school (or library, or both), a theater and then a tavern at the bottom. Let me try that!

That is a great idea! :D
There could be more than one version for the building, one used as a community lot, and one as a temple/deco more than anything - still community lot but with not much to do. What do you think?

Do you guys think I should remove the wooden structure inside with the lamps?

I think the tall wooden lamp is good. It gives the structure something other than grey as it color.
