“Epic Castle” is a nice demonstration of a complex mesh model that can be imported into OpenSim, and saved as an OpenSim Archive (OAR) file that others can load and use. In this instance the Epic Citadel was created and freely released by Epic Games to demonstrate the Unreal Engine.
It was imported to OpenSim and provided as an OAR for others to enjoy by Cuteulala Artis. Leora Jacobus scaled the castle up 1.5 times to allow avatars to use doors and rooms realistically and fitted it to single 256x256m region. She also added building interiors and other contents.

Epic Castle along with the reflected interior of the cathedral was created and freely released by Epic Games to demonstrate the Unreal Engine. It was imported to OpenSim and provided as an OAR for others to enjoy by Cuteulala Artis. Leora Jacobus rescaled the castle and cathedral by 1.5 time to be more realistic and so that avatars can get through the doors, downsized the mesh terrain to 0.7 times to fit on a single 256m X 256m region, and added various building interiors and other content (see this post). The cathedral organ was made by Arcadia Asylum.
