    Battersea Power Station

    I will be nice to that magnificent building in the game, one of the largest brick structures in the world:)



    Wiki: Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station located on the south bank of the River Thames, in Battersea, an inner-city district of South West London. It comprises two individual power stations, built in two stages in the form of a single building. Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s, with Battersea B Power Station to its east in the 1950s. The two stations were built to an identical design, providing the well known four-chimney layout. The station ceased generating electricity in 1983, but over the past 50 years it has become one of the best known landmarks in London.

    This is a propper request thread :D

    Are you requesting the building in its original form (power station) or as a residential complex?

    I like the original look of the station when it was still in use but I also think that modern project will add more into the game, what you think? I hope others join thread to see what community thinks:)

    Great choice and excellent reference material - greatly increases your chances of getting something made if you present like this.

    The screenshots of the high quality model to the building most likely have a far too high triangle and vertex count so it would either need to be optimized (and use textures and bump maps to supply the small details) or have a new model made from scratch. However, I would absolutely love to see that power plant in the game (as one that pollutes a ton).
