Throw back … uh Sunday?

So, sometime in the past, News 14 asked for a Gas Station sort of virtual set. The reporter that requested it wanted to be able to render out a short animation that showed the entire gas station from a distance and then zoomed into the pump.  My boss okayed the project, and then never told me to stop working on it after I finished what the reporter asked for.  For a few extra weeks between other projects, I added a bunch of extra props to flesh out the scene.  I added dumpsters modeled after the ones in our parking lot, a phone booth and air/vacuum pump, some basic shelves inside the store, wooden pallets, the ice machine, and a few other bits.  They finally got around to telling me to stop working on it, or I would have flattened the curb in front of the store to make a wheelchair access, and improved the lighting rigs. I made or modified all the textures in Photoshop, and took some of the texture photos myself from a local gas station.

    Now can you import this into a game? =D

    Hmmm.. maybe also build a autoshop next door. Your virtual drivers seem to be suffering from some cracked valves and are leaking oil.
