No worries  :)
What I meant was the references to make the models themselves.
Paintings, drawings, perhaps even old types of 'blueprints'. Are those commonly available or do you have to reconstruct a lot on a 'guessing' basis? Do most of these buildings still exist or are most long gone?

I´m not worried. But bad in english, as it seems to be. :P

I work together with a building-historican. He creates 2D-drawings in Auto-CAD based on archive-material, like the famous copper-engravings of Merian or old city-plans. He has a great private library
and in the city- or state-archives there he researches old drawings and descriptions of the buildings.

The colors / materials of the palace for example are based on a painting. Some of the buildings are still existing (the timberframed houses in the third pic).  Additionally some modern analysises of their original colors do exist.

In summary the model is in 90% based on old fashioned research, like my compagnon says. And i believe him.

About 60% of the buildings still exist. The library (3rd pic) is gone and the big tower and the buildings nearby the palace (1st pic) are gone too, for example.
And the roadspace and square are complete changed for the purpose of motorized traffic.

Heres a little movie of the reconstructed Palace Square of Wolfenbüttel around 1740:


Some flickering polygons have still to be removed and reflections on library at the end are not correct.

Another bug/issue is the "jumping" camera in the middle of the clip. Does anybody know how to fix this?
