Iv'e been to Salisbury, there is a cracking pub does so real nice nosh just off the camera persons left shoulder..........

could have worded it better as yes there were red tiles etc and still are, but ain't the curvy wavy type tiles modern derivitives ? they are more a continental design roof, you didnt tend to get many an older building in the UK with anything like that...... have a walk around and look.

the clay tiles that were used are like this

Looks more like encaustic, ie. burned clay tile. Started to replace other roofing materials in urban areas in high middle ages, though it only became common much later. Mass produced clay tiling was used a lot during the 19th century victorian architecture, as a part of gothic revival.

Our American friends might like to note the bricked up windows on the gable end of that house. The Commutation Act of 1783 repealed the tax on tea that so infuriated the founders of your great republic, but it also introduced a tax on windows. Folk seeking to pay less window tax bricked up windows they thought they could do without. This dates the house to pre-1783, even if it is a computer generated 3-dimensional object originally encoded in Moscow.

How dull was that?

They look like pantiles to me (which was also the name of the pub where Douglas Bader met his first wife whilst recovering from losing his legs, iirc)

Seriously, though, you can leave windows and doors open or your car unlocked these days and rarely do you have a problem. I am absent-minded and do it frequently if unintentionally!

Getting back on topic my grandparents' 17th century farmhouse has pantiles. Originally it probably had thatch, but from photos of the house from around 1890-1900 the red pantiles have been on since then. (The photos are black and white, of course, but they look to be the same tiles). You see a fair few agricultural buildings with them too near my grandparents'. The flat red tiles (as in the picture of Salisbury) seem to be more common, though. The curvy pantiles were first used in Britain in Roman times.

I think you are missing the point of the adverts as I myself are as much in the dark as the rest of you, these are released images, yes they are modern in appearance but they were probably added simply to facilitate the modelling procedure, they from what Oleg said can't use copyrighted material as you know from some of the Aircraft debates, as for approaching these companies , that is an interesting idea. After all product placement is a big buck industry....

I am just posting the pictures and letting you know what I know, I contacted Oleg after they were released and let him know of the fopar with the spelling of chocolate, it was explained to me at the time that they could not use genuine products, or at least those that are still under copyright. Often although the brand is effectually dead, they tend to be still owned or have been taken over by major corporations so still remain their property....
again as per Aircraft manufacturers.

I think Oleg actually asked me in an email to do some for the buses in retrospect, but at the time I never picked up on it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The transport museum in Coventry would be the place to ask that one.

P.S. I did some research on the pantiling. 'French pantiling' was popular in around 1900-1910, and there exists 'Lincoln Pantiling' which I think is the type my grandparents' farm has.

we can no longer afford to build full scale houses in the UK, the standard room size is determined by swinging a manx cat by the tail so it hits all 4 walls........ why a manx cat you ask? well it has no tail only a stump, so it allowed UK builders to reduce the room sizes over that of a standard tabby design.

I'll try to elucidate:-

I am desirious of discovering that the developers of this forthcoming simulation will insert authentic civillians originating from the eastern districts of London, clad in a style of clothing more in keeping with the 1940's than the turn of the 21st century. For example, women of the time to be portrayed would often wear an apron style garment known as a pinnafore, or 'pinny', usually decorated with a brightly colored floral design, their hair covered by a square piece of fabric - often of a similar pattern to the previously discussed pinnafore - folded into a triangle and secured under the chin with a simple knot or bow. Noted for their cheery outlook under pressure, the inhabitants of this part of London were renowned for inspiring others to follow suit and not to complain about their lot, or 'grumble' as they would have it in their own dialect.
Modern fashion in the aforementioned part of the British capital often involves the utilisation of a mock tartan cap with a large peak, the style of which was originally made popular by participants of the American sport of baseball, combined with a one piece garment made of stretch fabric covering the legs and lower torso, popular with the females of this area (and, truth be told, many others) which do little to reduce the percieved size of the wearer's buttocks - or 'butt' as the Americans would have it in the vernacular. The cheery welcome seems to be a thing of the past now, with the inspirational invitation not to complain being often replaced with a hostile line of questioning as to why you are looking at the said resident of east London, or 'Cockney' as they are referred to. This line of questioning will involve the use of words not siutable for a family orientated forum like this one. The shell suit is a two piece garment originally made popular by athletes as they wore them at sporting events during 'warm up' and presentation periods. These, more often than not, are decorated with a psuedo heraldic device - or 'logo' - that proclaims the manufacturer of the garment and is often matched by the footwear of our modern subjects. The object of these garments seems not to be warmth, or even style, but to proclaim to others members of the tribe that the wearer is not poverty stricken - an ironic twist to our study as these specimens are usually found in the less salubrious areas of our selected district.

I hope that's cleared things up you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
