Building Maker: It's ALIVE! It's ALIVE!

Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy. Work in progress at the time of writing...

Woo-hoo! Today I saw my model re-texture itself in Building Maker.

This is one of the cool new functions of the Building Maker program... as you build more, the program senses what buildings obstruct the view of others, and what vantage point offers a clear view (and texture) and then re-applies textures accordingly.

In my case I am making a model of the Piazza San Marco in Venice. A wall was incorrectly textured but as soon as I built the part of the building blocking the view, Building Maker found a better angle and fixed the texture. Cool.
