Plus you can even create a car or fps character and go around your model as if it is in a GTA style game.
I'm not familiar with any game engine, but it sounds like this is something I have to look into sometime.

I've now completed the second section.

By the way, how far and where are the airport, train station?

I'm looking forward to seeing your work. You can actually do the measurements yourself, as the map is included in the model, but the railway station is about 300 meters north of the modelled area and the airport is almost 5 km northeast.

Here'll be the last update for a while, as I'm going to take a summer break from Halvoo.

Work started on the third section. The Finnic Hotel Rautatieasema (= railway station) originally opened its doors in 1976. Coming to 21st century it was quite outdated and worn and went through a complete renovation and re-clad process. It reopened in 2012. The building is 77 meters tall.

Here's a couple of towers from the first half of 20th century. On the left is Uudenmaankatu 60 from 1929. It is 63 meters tall to the roof. On the right is Uudenmaankatu 62 from 1919. It is 45 meters to the roof.

Amazing work and great images! I'm modelling the centre of my hometown for a while and now I'm feeling inspired by you to show it here.

Good to see you're'e still working on Havloo, that takes some dedication, I know what it's like. And the city is really starting to make an impact now in terms of scale.

Thanks for the comments!

The Halvoo Main Bus Station was an open surface lot with a small terminal building up until the 21st century. The lot was underused compared to other densely built lots in the city center, so plans to replace it with something more efficient were announced in 2001. The first phase - an underground bus terminal and a shopping mall (named Altto) above the terminal were completed in 2006. The second phase of two residential towers above the shopping mall was completed in 2010. Now the third and final phase - building an office tower named Alttotorni - is under way.

Kaaritorni (officially Uudenmaankatu 80) is an 84 meters tall office building from the late 1970's.

These recent blocks does have a gritty 30s-50s style over them, the sorroundings are rather gray and "hard". I guess this isn't the wealthier part of town? I'd expect such a place to have more greenery in the public space and maybe som front gardens towards the street?

Anyway, nice work!
