I've been flying skirmish quick missions over Lille recently and was impressed by the detail of the city buildings. Flying over the "island" shown on the attached screenshot I wondered however what it may represent given its rather symmetrical shape.
Googlemaps gives us the following: Citadel at Lille
It was built some time in the 17th century and using the satellite view function in the link one can easily see how impressive it must have been and probably still is.
I can well remember my first PC flying days as a kid in Dynamix' Red Baron and how great it was that even in 1990 we had landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben included in a flight sim.
So I was wondering did any of you guys who have a great understanding of the aspects of ingame modeling ever consider building the Citadel at Lille?
Any feedback welcome
