Incredible work Boquillas! Those are certainly some of the most realistic SU models I have seen anywhere

Thanks guys!

Here's a personal favorite of mine. Not very big, but when I was a little kid I loved this building. BOA Pyramid:

Hey, it's not brown!

Seriously, these are all very good. Very nicely done, all of them. You got it down!

Thanks, Priller. That means a lot, coming from you. You've set the bar.

^ Keep it up. I love checking back here every few days to see what's been added. If you ever need any pictures for any of your drawings for visual reference, just ask, I'm sure I have some.

Thanks, Kevin-- I may take you up on that at some point. I plan to redo a lot of them with more detailed textures. Since the basic structures are already built, it's a lot easier to re-clad them.

Looking great. I appreciate all the hard work you've done.
On another note, does the Tower seem a little short back there in the distance?

The TOA on Google Earth right now is a joke. It's poorly drawn, looks like a tire on top, and only like 300' or something.

Oh Boquillas, feel free to go ahead and do the Marriott Rivecenter. I think I might've called that one, but I know you'll be able to do it pretty quickly so you might as well.

Thanks ydoc14--the MR still scares me-- just looking at that last pic you posted in the Flickr thread-- all those turret/setback features are crazy. That and I want to do all the buildings connected to their blocks, meaning I'd have to do all of RC Mall. I'll probably do it eventually, but right now the more boxy buildings are looking real good...

I do want to redo the TOA-- the one in GE right now is awful, and too short, like you guys said. I need some good pics of the new base. Oddly enough, Google has already done a model of the convention center, they just haven't added it to their buildings layer. You can download it from 3d Warehouse, though.

I'm also looking for 4-sided renders of Vidorra and the Broadway, if anybody has 'em. Seems like we only ever see the fronts of those two in renders.

Dude!

By the way, I do have a few pics of the base of TOA. Shoot me a PM and I'll email them to you.
