also i found this site with very nice models but i couldnt confirm if its GPLed or CCed (its in Russian :? ) still it can be a nice point of reference:

http://www.3dmodels.su/index.php?categoryID=81
http://www.3dmodels.su/index.php?catego ... &offset=12
http://www.3dmodels.su/index.php?catego ... &offset=24


also this free icon set, has 2 icons which are more inspirit of OTTD than the ones shown in the toolbar tar

anyone knows if those sketches in google 3d warehouse are licensed in any way?

there is a pretty big collection over there http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ and i see no license information only direct downloads ... (if it was licned google would have probably added a major warning)

if so than using this tutorial: Importing Google SketchUp files into Blender 3D can be very useful ...

neob: I think, as per usually with google, you give google all rights to your data and you get no rights from them.
But you still own all your data, and take responsibility for it, so I think the owner can release it publically as they please. Section 11. I can't find it stated anywhere the licence for that specific artists work, or any other artists, so I imagine it's just left blank and is copyright by default. Contact the owner I reckon.

@Ben_Robbins, i read that too, still its kind of strange on google part to allow everyone a free download without any mention of license
beside what is the point of allowing to download of source files if not for using them... (unless its intended to be used only on their service)

but i dont mind asking the artist for permission, problem is that non of those profiles include emails ...


anyway i seen you speak about textures and resizing and playing with them until its considered ok to use it
isnt importing that sketch to blender and adapting is kinda the same ?(

I think it could be a good idea to use sketchup models.

but in many cases like trains there are no corresponding models with the original ones.

you didnt really expect to get a fully working model, did you :D the point was you can use parts of those models to speed up the process of creating your own models.
