I'm currently working on a 3D city in Cinema 4D. This is a completely made up skyline. Its still in early stages but basically I used as a template Gwadah in Pakistan! Peculiar choice I know, but its on a thin isthmus peninsula, which means its not going to grow uncontrollably large, as its hemmed in on all sides by the sea. As its based on a real place, its developing more naturally as well.

Anyway, I've modellled the main low rise existing buildings, and now I'm moving onto my own stuff, hahaha!! Theres already a batch of highrises under construction on the left, and flats in the foreground. All the buildings are to scale. Most of the key buildings have names (which is easier to keep track of when building them), the tower in the foreground has been christened Memorial Tower and its 102m.

Comments welcome. I'll post regular updates.

Thanks for the comments. Yeah I used a real plan, just copied screenshots in Google Earth of Gwadah and then tiled them together in Photoshop, so theres quite a lot of detail. Then I approximately made the terrain, hills and mountain in the background. If you look at Gwadah in Google Earth, it looks vagually similar. All the low rise exisitng buildings were extruded up as simple blocks, their pretty crude, but your eye dosen't notice.

THe textures I hand drew, scanned into Photoshop to edit and then simply applied to the sides of the extruded blocks. In fact other than the map (and sky) everything else is hand textured. All the high rise buildings and mid rise do not exist in reality. So I'm simply using the existing Gwadah as a backdrop I suppose. Plus as its a desert I can get away without having trees (always labour intensive when rendering!)

I'm rendering more as I type. What I call the midtown area, which is in the middle of the peninsula to the left (where the distant towers are). This is an on going project, so I'll keep you updated.

Okay...FlyingDutchman, I simply copied aerial views and joined them together in photoshop to form a big map. Then applied this to a plane object in Cinema 4D. I could then slice the plane to make the outline of the buildings and simply extrude them, using the map as an approximate template. However, now all the new buildings are made up, so I can just create them without a template below.



map as template on plane



cut the plane to form outline of building



extrude



hey presto - a shed
