    Not a very creative detailer. This building looks really bland and boring. What props should I put in it?

    Maybe try using the 'brick w/ wood support textures' included in the "Frontline!" pack?

    I've included an example with a WIP of mine.

    Now I want to change the textures of this building, but don't know what material I should use.

    Try adding the red_stripe texture around the building, a concrete top, and some pipes down the side (maybe you can use Asteroid props?). Also, consider combining the B and C signs into the "B (+c)" variant.

    Here's a small-scale example. I used the 3pipe hydro props, but like I said above the Asteroid pipes might work for you.
