And the first attempt at the underground air shaft.

Yeah, that came out better than I thought. :D

Here's another version, with just some minor tweaks.

These games of spot-the-difference are always so hard. :P

I see a pad was added to the bottom of the right column.

 ;D

There's also an additional grey ring around the part where the dome meets the shaft. I added it to clean up the edge where they meet.

Geeze, even with the instructions it's still hard to spot.

I like that you have an eye for detail.

I guess this is a support structure? Surface and underground police stations.

Seems like every building I make has something unique about it. When I was looking at the original artwork, I noticed that the surface police station is basically a "telescoped" version of the underground police station. I thought that was kind of novel, so I gave it a try.

The above ground structure has an elevated observation deck. This is to allow the workers to see over the top of tubes and neighboring buildings, as well as further out on the horizon. Since the underground version doesn't need to see as far, it doesn't need an observation deck. So the top portion of the structure is mounted directly to the top of base.

On one hand, this makes sense from the standpoint that modular/similar buildings are more efficient to produce. On the other hand, it wouldn't make any sense to have an actual retracting observation deck. The only time that would make sense is if there were weather disasters (similar to OP2), where the building needed to hunker down into a more survivable state.

Not sure if it's an eye for detail or anal retentive behavior. :P

Nothing wrong with having tight glutes ;)

I like the police stations, particularly the surface level version. Though I found myself half hoping to find an OCP logo on it. "Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" ;)
