Hi, I am going to modelling my hometown city, Kota Kinabalu, SABAH.
KK doesn't have really impressive skyline but still has some beautiful and interesting buildings.
And most important is there are a numbers of U/C and Proposed interesting highrises on going or coming soon.
I will add all them into this modelling and we can see how possibly KK will look like in the future.:banana:
And i might also add in some of my own infrastructure wishlist in this modelling.


Some introduction and photos of KK

I will model the CBD area more details while the suburban area will feature highrises and main roads only.


PREPARATIONS
1. screenshots from bing map in small portion
2. merge in photoshop to one whole piece
3. split in illustrator to smaller piece
4. merge again in sketchup

These all steps is to get a clearer view to do the mapping in sketchup

Sketchup for mapping as mention at post#2, Photoshop for some editing.


Here's last part cbd area with the taking shape of the seaside waterfront.
Since the mapping refinement job is just a nightmare to complete, i will start to construct some buildings first.:banana:

Looks good! :) One thing though, you should add more detail to the windows to get better renders :) What render programme do you use?

i have to keep every building as simple as possible since this is a large scale city modelling and I am using SU podium for the renderings with very simple setting, basically i am only set the reflection:lol:, so any methods to make the renderings looks more realistic?
