      So I've been messing around in an attempt to come up with what I'm calling a New Age/Occult Pack of buildings - tarot and palm readers, psychics, and new age bookstore and occult shop.  It doesn't seem like anything like that has been done on the STEX, and I thought it would add a little flavor to some of the lower wealth commercial areas.

      I'm aiming for CS$ for the smaller, more modest ones - the psychic, the tarot reader, and the palm reader.  Perhaps CS$$ for the bookstore and shop, since they're a bit more substantial, two-story, and could be considered less seedy.  Ultimately, I'd love to add some form of NIMBY effect, since a lot of these types of businesses (particularly those one story psychic type shops which look like they're run out of someone's front parlor) are considered undesireable by some folks.

      Here they are in day and night view - I'm hoping to add and/or revise some of the signage, and the lighting has just barely begun, as I've just been getting the models and textures together.  



      And while we're talking about lighting, I have a few lighting and window questions which you guys will probably be able to answer...

      - how do you do neon?
      - how do you do an illuminated sign?  (not so much neon as plastic or another translucent material lit from behind)
      - what manner of lighting is more effective than just adding "nitelite" to the front of the windows?  I find that works great for smaller windows, but anything large it looks like a cheat...
      - on large windows with printing or signage in them, how you light them as well as retain the silhouette of that lettering or signage?

      Any input is appreciated.  And thanks for all those folks who downloaded Andy's Gun Works (my first BAT) from the STEX...hope it pops up in your low wealth commercial district soon!
