Re: Permission to use Island 51?

It is not my addon and not my place to give permissions, I was just the "messenger" here.

Small advice; even though Bushlurker has passed, don't just take his stuff and do what you want as there are many community members who won't like such activity. You'll just cut yourself off from the community.

Re: Some fixes to do

Check the latest video in our real world data project topic, there is buildings placed randomly. It doesn't look very nice but there are buildings on the cities.

Building placement is basically easy, but just time consuming. You could learn it yourself and try it out.
