One extremely foggy, not to mention cold day at Pyestock, which was the place where they tested the first Jet Engines ever. It's a seriously huge site consisting of Test Cells, it's own small transformer station, offices and other buildings used for running the tests such as a hall filled with nothing but giant air compressors.

This is the room in which all the engines for the Concord Supersonic Jets were tested, the building cost £93million.

Interesting place but are you sure about the first jet engine ever thing?

No, im not anymore, i was posting that when i was fairly tired. But it was certainly very important in the development and implementation of very early gas turbine engines, amongst the first at any rate. Thanks for the comments too.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
