I have been thinking about having a fortress tower in TTDP as a replacement for the transmitter or lighthouse, the building in the picture is the one i am hoping to have, its from the town of Huddersfield in England.

Image
I'm in need of a drawer, and eventually a coder, I'm also hoping i'm not the only one who likes this idea :)

Info on this tower is here http://www.bronte-country.com/castle-hill.html

i assume you have a digital camera...

true, i'm in Holmfirth, its on the top of a hill though, so it can be seen for miles off, and looks just as great whereever you are, I've also been to the top of the hill, and the base of the tower :)

So wait... you're in need of an artist and a coder... So in other words this is a [REQ] and you aren't doing any of it yourself?

Correct. It needs a tag badly, since you are not doing any work on it.

i reckon it would be best if you have it replace the lighthouse...

the transmitter might have some undesired effects...

this might be a interesting Idea, although drawing it/stopping it appearing in airports might be a challenge
