Hey ozziedave...Welcome to skyline...when you unzip the metal_barrel file you will get a folder that you can go to
C:\Aurasoft UK\Asset Library\Models
and paste this folder into the models folder...then you can see the models in the asset manager in the skyline engine...then you can drag the barrels into the editor...Go to the translation to the right side of the editor and set the uniform scale to 0.01...Then drag a material from the asset manager onto the barrel...

I only know about the barrels..I never downloaded the Gold...I guess these are some type of zip files...I used 7-zip to open them...I hope this helps you out...
Thanks, CreativeOcclusion

Many Thanks CreativeOccusion once I Re-Named the File with a zip extension, it was then clear to me what had happened
I hope they get re-named with a zip extension someday.

Cheers

Yea you don't see many .zip files without a .zip extension...Took me a while to figure out what it was too...You are very welcome...I don't know everything about SkyLine, but I try to help out where I can...Glad you got it working....CO

Wow... what a hassle! I downloaded over 40 assets I think... and 90% of them are files with no extensions... I was clueless about what to do.

Hey, Asset Store managers... can you please add .zip to all of the asset files so that nobody else suffers the same fate?

Thanks!
