Those stairs turned out very nicely!
The spiral stairs will come in hand for future ideas as well. The carparks I made long time ago that overlap. These style of stairs would look good with those as well. Hope soon to get back to work with those and lower them like Kamnet asked many moons ago and actually make them multi-story of several levels.
A Heathrow inspired building is maybe the best way to go
I thinkso too .. make it as close as possible to that design but not need exact.
Looks like best I make it in 2x2 size blocks.
The block I been working on the far left if you see a full frontal image where the trucks are. But instead of 10 bays be only 6.
Next 3 all look similar but show only 2 bays each. Far right a bit different and it joins the office block. I hope I can do something similar.
Indeed the real building may be way too large to be used a lot in OTTD world (more of a landmark rather than a building that you place multiple times in a game)
True .. I thinking if someone played a 64x64 map, this building if I did it full size, it would take almost a 1/4 of the map
So a cut down version the way to go.
The details in the facade are most important (loadingbay, stairs, awnings and offices) and I think you are getting those to look very nice.
The curve of the roof is less important, it should be there as it adds to the look of the facade, but doesnt have to be huge.
Keeping the roof flat will also help in maybe making the building modular (as a lot of your new offices/commercial-buildings are modular).
Being white in colour it probably could be used with the other modular buildings at well. It a bit higher then the others, but when you look at some images of distribution centres they have sections where the roof it different heights.
The stairs on the side will probably need to be a separate 1x1 tiles and just place them beside the building where we want.
Some nice stuff for the sides (especially those pretty stairs) and a bit of eyecandy on the roof could be enough to finish this design off.
The roof will be interesting in the center. Not sure if those panels are Solar Panels or to let in light. The bit at each end that covers the side stairs will test me as there will most likely overlaps, or I just make them a separate tile.
We shall see what happens as ideas come to me .. Cheers pal.

I use this set of objects in my games, it fits very well, especially when you build an embankment on the coast, a park. I recommend combining with other objects to look even better and more beautiful visually. Yesterday I personally checked and saw many changes. The icons for roads and tramways are now separate, not like they used to be in the drop-down list.
Welcome to the forums. There are several sets made by others that work well with what I done. One day I get mine finished, but keep getting new ideas
If you think of any ideas , please mention them and see if me or one of the other coders could add it to their sets.
