My comments to my TT warehouse model, please see photo to the right
On the ground there is a photo of the top of the building, because the satellite was not exactly strait over the building. I have covered up that part, because I think it should not be visible. However, as I understood, the warehouse evaluators commented that I should not have any "Ground buildup".
My question is, shall I even remove the water on the ground, which surrounds the building? I think it belong to the building and gives it a character, but I want to follow the rules.
As can be seen, there is a square (lighter) photo exactly showing the TT site. This photo comes from Google, not from me. The same about the heavy shadow, not from me.

Questions and support
I would be glad, if anyone can tell me about the mistakes I have done and give me tips about how to improve.

Thank you for your help!


PS Thank you very much to 'Eneroth3' who solved my model's ID problem:

When I edited my model in SketchUp warehouse, by downloading and then uploading it after editing, I met a blank formula. That was because my model had lost it's ID number. 'Enroth3' told me have to edit my models ID-number manually.

In the address bar in 3D-Warehouse you can read a model's ID-number.
As in this example:
In this address "54c3d176b055c6963ae1361afc45ac52" is the ID (between "mid=" and "&").

Type the following text, see next line, into the ruby console in your SketchUp(Windows > Ruby console):

Sketchup.active_model.set_attribute('3DWarehouse', 'ModelID', "<MID>")

And just replace "<MID>" with the ID before you press enter.
