The dam is still looking quite wobbley as they never tweaked the topography to match the image. Such a shame that the development team have had 4 releases in which to get this right. I last commented (http://www.gearthhacks.com/forums/showthread.php?p=33001#post33001) on this about a year and a half ago

If you turn on the 3d Buildings Layer, you'll see someone's rather good model of the dam. Sadly, it suffers topographical problems as well, sitting nearly 200ft higher than Lake Mead.

There's also no indication of the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge Construction (http://www.hooverdambypass.org/) on Rt93.
