NEW - 3D Models

The majority of campus buildings have been rendered in 3D to further enhance the experience.

The default setting is for only a few buildings to be turned on and visible - this keeps the initial download time reasonable. Simply click the "Models" folder in the "Places" menu to turn the remaining buildings on.
