You guys are right, but I don't understand your question, zarfang. You asked how to get the model, but I just said that the whole thing was basically a bunch of really nice looking (compare them to the city terrain that comes in the gallery) city textures that should make creating cityscapes much easier. Over my vacation I did a little experimenting (not a lot, mind you, after all, it was my vacation) and figured out how to reduce the filesize of photos without reducing their quality too much. I'll do that to the city textures and re-release them, along with some of the other cool stuff I made over vacation.

I was wondering which questions were still unanswered. Here are a couple of answers:

19) The day "friday" is named after the Norse deity Frey
23) The speed of sound depends a lot on the medium. For instance the speed through air at room temperature is 340 m/s, while it is 331 m/s in dry air at 0 degrees C. In water sound travels much faster (1500 m/s) and through steel it's 5800 m/s. There are even metals in which the speed goes up as far as about 12000 m/s.
24) Literally means: "being born" (a bit broader it can also say: "beginning to exist or develop")
25) the Heavyweight boxer Donovan Razor Ruddock

21) I think "L" is the odd one out here.
22) Joe DiMaggio is the seventh event in the song and I think the year you refer to would then be 1954 in which he maried Marilyn Monroe.

As you posted before I did my last update I repost for Q22:

22) Joe DiMaggio is the seventh event in the song and I think the year you refer to would then be 1954 in which he maried Marilyn Monroe.

21) the R has a round line in it, so maybe that is the odd one then?

26) from "Batman" (1992)
27) Lewis Carroll
29) Mel Blanc

I know I'm a little late but I'm joining too.
31. The na'avi are from pandora an it is technically not a planet but a moon:p
32. The protagonist of uncharted is Nathon Drake.
34. A flechette is a small steel projectile that was dropped from planes and zepplins during WWI. They are not used because they they were widly used in civilian areas and detractors argued that they conflicted with the 4th Geneva convention
