    Yoz, I tried putting your Shanghai Grand Theatre in game, but there is this diagonal white line floating above the building both in game and civilopedia. Any idea?

    Hi, would you be interested in helping RI out a bit? We need a very generic beach resort hotel, perhaps with a pool and some umbrellas. There are a lot of examples, that all look more or less the same:

    another request would be a bit more specific; basically this building:

    http://tropico.wikia.com/wiki/Spa
    the looks are more or less ideal.

    Eh so how do you define your Golden Gate Bridge for it to look nice in game.
    You suggested 0.2, i reduced it to 0.02 using L_SYSTEM_COAST and it still look super long and extends all the way inland :D

    Sorry im not good at that stuff - i just convert them from google warehouse and the skins do,not convert well - im bad with reskinning an item so all of mine are either simple one skin items or skinned very nicely by the creator of the warehouse item. if i ever improve i will make one for you
    hmm will have to look at that, water ones are pretty tricky, im not working with buildings right now but when i start again ill try to fix it

    i remember it was named something else and when i wikipedied the name it nrought be to alhambra arts council. it cold very well jot even be the alhambra arts council...i would go under pakistan on google warehouse and look there
    download both reg google sketchup and sketchup pro (trial) open/create bilding un regular, save it, open in sketchup and export as 3ds. (if u do that quickly under a mnute it wont count that time as part of ur trial). ope nifviewer and import 3ds. save as nif. Import nif into blender, then export it to nif(seems unnecesary, but if you dont do it it wont work dont ask why) and all done

    While you are at it, Lupu Bridge is supposed to go over a river, rather than serve as a coastal wonder :D
    And I guess you have not reuploaded the Angel of North since the download was spoilt :D

    the files I downloaded from Google warehouse would not open with Sketchup. these are the 2 buildings I am trying to convert:
    Dhamek Stupa, Trajan's Column

    am I downloading the right files? thanks. (if you fell like adding either of those to your collection that would be great too!)

    do not download the, from the website, what youndo it open sketchup (not pro) and click file import google warehouse( or open googlewarehouse something like that) it will bring you to the google waryouse, you find the item, press dl and it will go right to skecthup

    dacubz145, if you find some time, could you check if there is any possibility for you to create/convert a model of the dome of Aachen? I think, it would fit great to the holy roman empire and Charlemagne.

    Please do not mind my request, Hrochland already did one model for me (although he is still working on it, because it is not perfect).

    By the way, would it be possible to convert a model of the Atomium in Brussels? This would be very interesting for me, too.
    Here is the model I found on google warehouse
