Hey all,

So I recently had the idea to import buildings from Google earth into Theotown via photo editing. Was quite a tricky process to get right, but I think this is a cool first proof of concept.
I made the 1000 de La Gauchetière, a mixed commercial building from my hometown of Montreal. Overall the building is noticeably imported looking from up close, however when zooming out I think it looks fine. Here's how it looks in my city:

Anyways it would be neat to see what can be done with direct Google earth imports. In no way should it replace drawing plugins, but I can see it becoming a useful tool to create more accurate buildings.

The building itself:

Not bad, but you should put concrete and details on the ground instead of that brown zone texture. :teach
