Eano Industries present the second part in the All American series. This series sets out to represent typical west coast USA commercial architecture and branding.
There is a hole to fill for car services in CXL, I mean how do all those cars go so far without fuel?
There are only three bland gas stations that don’t stand out in the game, so here is some colourful corner candy for your cities!
There are six station configurations, two are re-skinned and mirrored for extra layout variation. The duplicate models have a brand significance too, ARCO is/was part of BP, Chevron and Texaco are the same company. The Shell features a car wash and is a T3 at 60x40. Tried to vary the aging too, the Mobil being the oldest, the 76 is most recent in design and wear. Citgo are the suppliers of the 7-11 gas which pretty much completes the major petroleum players along the west coast USA.
The models and textures have been created in a way that delivers high quality balanced with efficiency. There is only a single 1024 map (used for the diffuse texture), all other maps for L1-3 use 512x512. The L4 map is 128x128 on all of the models. The models mostly stay shy of the poly limits for a T2 for the highest LODs. The smallest is half the recommended limit too. Both of these optimizations will help prevent slowing or crashing of your cities due to memory usage.
For this version 1 release, path following animations (saynetes) have not been included. I’ve had some issues with getting them to work properly, I will update the release when this has been implemented, and they are still in progress, currently getting some additional eyes on this.
I feel I also have to give a disclaimer, just because I made these branded models doesn't mean I love the petroleum industry or support oil spillage disasters, they’re just another feature of any city. Thank you to all that supported me on the development thread, it keeps me motivated!

Texture Map usage on all:
L1-3: DIFF 1024x2/BP 512x2/REF 512x2/ILL 512x2/AO 512x2
L4: DIFF 128x2
UPDATE 1.1 - Craigstephens93 kindly assisted me on tuning the class files to buy and use fuel (but not produce it). The buildings now sell retail and have reduced the retail consumed. A massive thank you for your support sir! Delete version 1.0 and replace with version 1.1.

Thanks to a large donation we are covered this month and next month. Ad money should be sent by then to cover a further two months.Dismiss Notice
I would like to see us always have at least a months worth in advance but that will mean constant donations. Seems we are not as busy as we were years ago so guess it's the main reason for low donations.
Hope you all are keeping safe
