    Hi Randy,

    Nice shot. One thing I noticed is those cars we commonly use is they have an error in the ORTS log about some missing "gloss map" - so I started playing around - while not a huge fan of "specular" - if you open the automobile shapes in ShapeFixer and change the "shine level" to the highest shine - they look far better than the flat paint. Might want to try it and see if you like it.

    Regards,
    Scott

    It is good, but isn't it an anachronism next to the architecture of the filling station and the model years of the car...more likely there would be old versions something like those pictured below.

    The whole route is an anachronism and that's ok. The cutoff date is around 1965. Nothing newer, lots older. Works quite well.
    This was originally a Flying A gas station from one of the 3DTS routes.
    The original pop machine was square. I tried a rounded older style texture but I couldn't get it to look right so I went with the oldest style I could find that fit.
    The pop machine was a Coke Machine and I was a Pepsi drinker.
    Radio Gasoline is an Indy band and the sign is from their cover art. I thought it was cool, so... I borrowed it.
    It works for me and I'm having fun.
