I like the building and understand about being a sketchup model. I also use sketchup but not download from the warehouse, I build my models myself from scratch. I was wondering if you have any idea how to add nightlights to sketchup models? Or anybody else that might know?

This looks like a warehouse model with bad textures slapped on in sketchup; which you admit it is.

Honestly, this is a poor first showing by someone who has been around long enough to know better.

Great first BAT!  I do have a couple of suggestions:

1) The base could use some added detail.  You could use planters, more trees, newspaper stands, etc... to spruce up the grounds.

2) The roof needs a little more work.  The details are not very crisp.  I would add some texture to the roof and a few more props.

3) Study other BATter's work to see what details they have added to their BATs to make them great.  A few suggestions would be Mattb325, Madhatter, Aarron Grahm, SimGobber...plus many others.

Overall, a great job on your first BAT.  I gave you 5/5.  Looking forward to further creations from you.  Keep up the good work.

      Hi guys, it's me ...
      I decided to open this new topic to show my work in the Bat's by Sketchup.
      I know there are some who oppose the use of this program, like some who criticized my first rookie job. that's why, after a few of tutorials and practices, I think I have what it takes to take this project ... I hope your support and patience ... regards
      I want to give special and applause to:

      Excuse the sardonic title.
      My goal is to be able to take a city block I've made in SC4, recreate it in Sketchup, then retexture it myself.  
      I could just do this using Sketchup's downloadable models, but since SC4's divided into a grid of 56-foot tiles, it makes an excellent layout tool.  So, whether it's Maxis's buildings or custom ones, I'm just looking for 3d models that fit the game's proportions.  I can use substitutes to fill in any gaps.
      However, I have no idea if it's even possible to view the game's original 3d assets, and even more vexing, it seems all the 3d files on the exchange are .max.  I've never had an .edu email and I'm not a professional CG artist, so I'll pass on the $3,700 program.
      So, in short, is there any way to find any in-game buildings as 3DS's, OBJ's, or any format readable by any non-Autodesk program?  Or is there any way to download files I could open in BAT itself, so I can at least get their proportions and rebuild them quicker?
      Thanks, everyone.

      I went to California earlier this year for work reasons and the area I stayed was very far from any kind of public transport. Still, we had one afternoon to spare to visit Hollywood and of course, make a couple of pictures.
