I’ve been experimenting, off and on, trying to make a Chevron station (a specific one from the Houston area). Because it’s off on a highway, the sign is tall and large (a smaller one exists on street level, but that’s a bit beside the point). Here’s the specific gas station I wanted to build: http:// www. oscarmail. net/ houstonfreeways/images/20140118-us290-clearance/20130500_290_0289_chevron.jpg
The sign isn’t specifically unique (at least to this one location), further down the road there’s a few more (these have since closed): http:// www. oscarmail.net/houstonfreeways/images/20140118-us290-clearance/20130407_290_009_maximum_furniture.jpg
These pictures aren’t mine, they are from the excellent Oscar (Erik) Slotboom, the page which you can see here:
Unfortunately, I had a hard enough time trying to even line up some columns to make the base for the sign, and the sign structure has a distinctive shape to it, the way it holds the Chevron “shield”…that has to be done right.
I’m trying to see if I’m assembling it right…because trying to place a rectangle on top of my uniform tubes (in the pictures, they taper off) doesn’t seem right…
One of the reasons I’d like to be as such is I want to someday use it in a game (SimCity 4 and/or its worthy successor). Can anyone help me out, or am I way over my head?
