Zenith City Tiny Times

Prev1
It also looks like a really bad 1980s version of Art Deco - but with a big yellow newspaper plonked on top that is way out of scale. I despair. The standard of design in the other new buildings way outclass this pathetic effort. Why would anyone want this shriveled shrimp of a thing in their town?

    The "big" prize is the same size as the phone booth! ?

    I don't know that I particularly need a skyscraper, but it just looks terrible at the size it is.

    Where are you seeing the scaled size? Do you have it already?

    Ha! I usually avoid the complaint threads. There's always *someone* whining about something. :roll:

    Having said that...the sizing is disappointing. Size matter you know. :mrgreen:

    every great event is Highlighted by skyscraper building.

    If that's the case (I'm still new here), I'd assume that they see the HQ building as the skyscraper for this event. Maybe they thought having two would be excessive.

    That said, I'd still like it if it was bigger, but it doesn't bug me that much. The scale for the lofts does seem a bit odd though when they're the size of a single house. Lofts are generally large. I've seen them in some towns already (including one guy who's got dozens), and they're pretty underwhelming like that.

    It's bigger than I thought it was, but it's still smaller then I'd like it to be.

    Also you had to go there!? :lol::lol::lol:

    Here's a pic of it in one of my neighboreeno's towns, next to a couple of familiar buildings.

    Notice how it looks shrimpy next to the hero HQ, and also how the phone booth looks gigantic next to the Times bldg...

    Originally, I was going to stockpile all of my capes, etc to get the Times bldg first.
    After seeing the awkward scale.....Well, today I built the storefront and apartments. ?

    Weren't people complaining about the size of the previous two skyscrapers from 2013? I remember people complaining a lot that they were too large, too tall, took up too much space so you had to decorate around them causing you to lose a lot of your free land...

    So they scale it down...and it doesn't look so bad. It looks smaller than normal but if you frame it right you should be all right in regards to the size. Plus it looks about as proportional to a lot of other buildings from the pictures I have seen, so it's not the only improperly scaled building...


    And since it's a superhero event, you could always say that Brainiac or some other supervillain shrunk the building...

    Now, there's an idea! I can dig out my elf houses, and put them around the Times.

    Ta da! Elf news! :P

    do you need these zenith city things to move on in the quest?
    or are they just more city things to clog up our Springfields?

    Seeing pictures now, it doesn't bug me either, but I wish it was a little bigger, the scale seems off. Very pretty building though, I'm definitely crafting it :P

    To answer your Q, the HQ building is automatically given, but these buildings you need to win, that's why I said the HQ skyscraper doesn't count in my mind - only winnable buildings do.

    The SS HQ was a $5000 give away. I love that it's a skyscraper but I too kinda anticipated this building would be large and the 'big' prize of the event. It certainly does look odd. Even I could pretend brainiac shrinked it, it looks like a building that should stand tall and stand out, not a 'thanks for participating' trophy from my 3rd grade summer baseball league.

    Try putting it next to the cracker factory!

    And yeah we had to go there ?

    No. With the exception of the Botanical Garden the only buildings you need for the quests are the ones you win in Issue 3 and Issue 4. You could forgo building all of the craftable buildings if you really don't want them, that's your choice to make.
