Here is a new thread to discuss various custom assets built for the VDL. I'll show a screenshot of the object or building and the more knowledgeable amongst you can have a guess at what it is, and where it is. The where it is requires the postal code ( not full, just area ) and the road or location. We'll have one of these competitions every month.
Well done there Sir. Correct. Notably two current students are Prince George and Princess Charlotte, so if either ever gets to drive the VDL they will spot their old school. But why did we model it ?
The main reason being in my old job as a london cabbie ( why has no one ever produced a proper London taxi game for PC ? ) I worked for Radio Taxis and they had the Westminster account for special needs children. One of those account jobs was an every day job of picking up a carer near St Pancras Station at about 14.30 pm ( lovely girl called Bernadette ) take her down to this school ( it was called the Parahay school back then ) and pick up a special needs child who was being sent there at Westminsters expense and take her back to a very expensive Apartment block near Marble Arch, drop her off there, waiting for Bernadette to take her up to her parents flat, then take Bernadette back home again.
It was a very well paid fixed price job. The reason I got it so often was because I had lunch every day in a cafe in Eversholt St, which was a stone's throw away from Bernadette's home. I probably got this job on average about 3 days of the week picked by the computer system as the nearest cab. So this school was a big part of my working life. I twisted Richard's arm to build it for me as it is a prominent landmark you can see from the train on the viaduct, between Putney Bridge and Parsons Green.

I wish SIE London Studio would reboot The Getaway, they did a pretty outstanding job of recreating London. Especially when you take in the fact that they had PS2 Hardware to work with, a pretty low budget and GTA releases in the same quarter as both games.
