I want some rule packages created but I have not the skill to build them how I want. Where is a good place to look or commission someone to create?

We have many that have and many that have not been posted yet. What kind of rules are you looking for?
Mainly generic buildings of various cultures.
If you look inside the CityEngine project that is built in, called ESRI.lib, there are several rules there concerned with making buildings. Most of our photographic facade images are European or American. Do live in or near any of the regions that you are interested in? We are working on methods where you can take photos of buildings and create libraries for different regions. Have camera, will travel?
I need some styles for buildings from several regions around the world. I have seen the inbuilt ones but wondered if there were any others?
The topic I am researching is looking at autonomous re-creation of buildings from various data sources such as satellite data.
I would like to know more about your new methods.
You might look into a company named Pictometry - they are a vendor of 3D buildings that are exact replicas. Some systems we use internally use LIDAR point clouds along with 2D building footprint polygons to derive building forms, and then we use "geotypical" facade images to give them a realistic look - but we need to grow our libraries to include more regions. This is a work in progress.
I need to create rules that represent generic Florentine medieval-style apartment buildings but white. I am thinking we might work off the Venice or Pompeii ruleset, but these are pretty different in terms of assets and we are not good at CGA. Can you give me an idea of what it would cost to hire a CGA script person who would help us create our facade and extrusion rules for this project? I am kind of tearing my hair out on this!
Do you have a rule package for street lamps etc?
There are some street lamp assets in the Philadelphia Redevelopment example in the folder assets/streets/lamps/. This example is downloadable through CityEngine (Help -> Download Tutorials and Examples).
Hi Christian, this is what I do for more for almost 20 years (now with CE since its first incarnation) and it is a whole area of expertise in itself, you can check Romain Janil | Industrial 3D | Industrial Design - Industrial 3D 3D[i] and of course contact me if you still need something in that field.
