You're probably tired of the same old buildings that come with Skyscraper. Let's fix that.
Members of the forum have created some spectacular buildings. Let's download some of them.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Gooper1's Data Pack
Gooper1's Data Pack (G1DP) is the preferred way to get hundreds of buildings and their required data in just 2 files. You can download G1DP at http://gooper1datapack.weebly.com/. Help is on the G1DP website. G1DP is maintained and updated by gooper1 (administrator of the Skyscraper Simulator Forum) every 2-4 weeks. DO NOT get the Starter Add-On Pack - you do not need it. NOTE: You WILL need a program that can unpack .rar files (such as 7-Zip) before installing G1DP.
We're going to download EscalatorGeek881's Integration Project, which contains all of his buildings and the needed data (sounds, textures, etc.).
Step One: From the main page of the forum, select “Custom Buildings”, then choose the "Integration Projects" child board.
It is best to keep up to date and watch for the latest updates. Click the link near the top of that post to download the file, or CLICK HERE for the file.
Save the ZIP file to your desktop. Please wait for the download to complete, which may take several minutes based on your internet connection.
Once it's done downloading, open it. Extract everything to your Skyscraper folder. You will be asked to merge or overwrite folders. Select “Yes".
To launch one of the buildings that you just downloaded, you will need to select “Other Building” at the main menu of Skyscraper to select which building you want to explore.
If you encounter an error when loading a building, visit the Troubleshooting section of this website for help.
How to download buildings that do not need extra data:
Sometimes you will find standalone buildings on the forum that don't require extra data (or else they require data that you will need to download separately, like buildings made with Beno's Building Creator). You can simply download those .bld files to your “buildings” folder. You will find that in your Skyscraper folder.
