Objects are eyecandy newgrfs. You just place them wherever there is a free space.

Hi. But they still work as real houses, not eyecandy on the eyecandy Objects menu.
I started a new game without grfs, added the grf later, and the towns started to build them alone. Nothing on the Objects menu.

They are looking nice but little bit to large against rest of the buildings

They look very effective, it's just a pity that most of them are based on four tiles and with standard houses they look caricatured

Very nice that you have made these buildings more easily accessible for players.

I, too, do not like this set. It is full of dark, angular, uninviting buildings. I would prefer it if you had made a set of giant fluffy bunnies instead and am deeply appalled that you chose to not cater to my personal preferences.

So do I. It's very well crafted! Could do with some activity on the concrete ground (pedestrians, vegetation, etc), otherwise I really love it!

If they're too big and overshadow the rest of your town, just make some crazy ass boulevards to spread them out a little :)
