The Reserch Center is a place where advanced technologies, like particle beams, are unlocked. When
a Research Center is constructed, you gain access to all but the most powerful, unique units. Those
will require the presence of an CABAL Datacore to operate safely.

I know naming discussions are horrible, but imo is research a bit strange for an artificial intelligence, since it's progress is mostly limited in computational power and information. Thus something more fitting would be "assimilation node" or "quantum matrix" or something else which sounds like some "flux capacitor" device thingy for some hyper advanced calculations and information collection/analysis.

The building itself looks nice, though imo could the main building texture get some more details like some small reflections for a more metallic look, some kind of noise map for dirt, rust, etc. A tad higher contrast might help too, so the shaded and lighted parts don't have such a similar brightness and you get a better feeling for depth and size due to self-shadowing.
For a tech centre it also looks a bit too ordinary imo. I would expect something more shiny and flashy.

I agree with LKO. Somehow it looks more like a barrack rather than research center to me.

CABAL is more than a mere AI, you should know that LKO. #Tongue

But good points you have there. I kinda agree with both of them... though any changes can't take very high priority right now, as there are placeholders to be killed.

What LKO said, the building looks so lifeless artificial being such consistent shades and no glow of the metal to be seen like reflections, add all those and you got much nicer final result.

I really like this building. As the others have said it needs a little more shine. Other than that it looks grand! GREAT work!
