#Real-Life #Photogrammetry #Buildings United States Exclusive Drag and Drop
Replaces the vanilla autogen buildings and updates to Google's more recent imagery to include the hotel and concert venue. Also added accurate lighting to the buildings, parking garage, and surrounding parking while blending as best as possible to the underlying Bing maps textures.

Note:
May incur some frame drops at night and up close, I tried optimizing the lighting but it doesn't make as much of a difference since frame drops are from the mesh. There is also a terrain glitch at the middle intersection that can't be buffed out but isn't noticeable especially from afar.

Thunder Valley Casino Resort is a hotel and casino located in unincorporated Placer County in Whitney, California near the city of Lincoln, California, 30 miles (48 km) northeast of Sacramento. The casino has over 3,000 slot and video machines, 125 table games, and a live poker room with enough space for 160 players. I am not promoting gambling or any irresponsible behaviors nor am I affiliated with Thunder Valley Casino. This was made to help bring the area more to life especially for those living in Northern California who recognize its iconic hotel and scenery or anyone exploring the state capitol.

Installation:
Drag and Drop the bf8888-thundervalley folder from the zip into the Community Folder.

    Very nice. Now if only someone can import the worlds largest casino WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Very beautiful and now partly owned by the Dallas Cowboys would make a great addition to the sim. Thanks for the upload, Great job!

    You're welcome, thank you for the feedback!
    And like the other user's suggestion for Laughlin, Google hasn't made Photogrammetry for Winstar yet, however it does have some good Orthos which can still be imported and blended into Bing Maps as well. I don't have much experience 3D hand modeling in Blender unfortunately but I highly recommend putting it up for a request to model the hotel, globe, and some of the surrounding buildings.

    Hmm...Laughlin isn't in photogrammetry and unfortunately I don't know much hand modelling in Blender for the casinos and other buildings.
    Although I can try importing Google's Ortho for the city and blending some of the terrain with a similar process I did with this.

    Thank you for this. I couldn't believe this wasn't modeled. It's such a visual waypoint for LHM. Then again, half the buildings at LHM aren't even present.

    You're welcome! Yea it's too bad the photogrammetry and high detailed textures end halfway through Roseville so it doesn't reach Lincoln. I'm actually from the central Bay Area so I haven't gone up to Lincoln myself, but I'll see about importing LHM with photogrammetry as well to supplement this!
