Remus City, the greatest sketchup city!
 
I've finally begun the new version of my city!
Here is a link to the first page of the old thread http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=207324
My skills have hugely improved since then!
Heres the north park area and the World Trade center reborn!

This is another view.

Looking up at the World trade center!

Thats all, the layout of the city is going to be similar to the old version, but I don't remember just how I aligned the nine sections of downtown last time...
Comments and suggestions are welcome:)

I've done a lot on my city!

The acropolis from the park.

Some of my best buildings!

A street view! I've changed the textures of the mega complex buildings.

I'm now making green roofs:D

Thats all!
I guess this forum really is not popular anymore:(
I'm thinking of joining skyscrapercity but I don't like their site as much as this one:( But I here their forum is much more active, and maybe more people will comment on my city...

Great job!

Where's the Romulans?

Skydragon42 Nov 29, 2014 7:24 PM

^^^^^^^
Thanks for liking my city:D
Maybe there should be Romulans here!

Great job! I could never imagine living in that huge central tower, it would be crazy haha. :D

I like the form of the big building in the middle Skydragon.

Thanks, it does have a very neat shape, it's probably my best building:D
I've done a lot of buildings in the city!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps80e03156.png
Here are some old style buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psa79400af.png
In the middle is a nice art deco building, with a spire and shiny roof!

Here is a view from one of the sky parks on the Acropolis tower!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3ba10bac.png
Thats everything, tell me what you think:)

Skydragon42 Dec 21, 2014 8:35 PM

The central business district is almost done!

A weird ally like the real one in my city!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps299813da.png
Another one, when I walk past the real one, it just looks so weird!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pse0cefa20.png
A cool street view!

An urban canyon!

Looking up at my twin towers!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps624208d3.png
Thats all for now! I'm going to continue adding on to my city until my computer can't handle it any more or my vision for it is finished!

Vellu Jan 3, 2015 7:59 PM

This second version has moved along very nicely. The building mass looks quite diverse and should make for an interesting skyline. Would it be possible to see a skyline shot?

I really like those canyon views!

Skydragon42 Jan 5, 2015 5:10 PM

I've done a lot on the city!
Here is the skyline!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps93aa6a2c.png
Here is the progress.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psb558160c.png
Cool buildings!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3b76f6b0.png
Now I'm making my own trees!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psff2906bd.png
Here's the tropical park!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps55e6da9b.png
I great view!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6cfe5470.png
I love my giant palm trees!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps919e7d44.png
Thats all for now! Tell me what you all think!

Vellu Jan 17, 2015 7:45 PM

Thanks for the skyline shot. The Arcology is a true ruler of the city. I wonder how its residents compare to the rest of the city population: are they higher class people how look down on the people living in the regular buildings or vice versa.

The view from the park towards the buildings and the arcology is really great!

Skydragon42 Feb 23, 2015 6:03 PM

I've not been on here for too long!
And I took a brake from my city!
But now I'm back, with new pictures of the city!
Progress on this section.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps02vurrbb.jpg
Gothic perfection!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psh2czuucy.jpg
My own architectural style, Gothic futurism!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps2bmkz5ju.jpg
More of it!

A view from the river front.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1qwo5lsw.jpg
Here is a huge blue building!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pstr1dfkhu.jpg
One of my favorite towers! You can see an old palace in the background!
Acropolis number two!http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pstlbkeysk.jpg
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psia0cxy70.jpg
This mini Acropolis is based off of Mauville City from Pokemon Alpha sapphire!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps8ndcbyqa.jpg
Thats all for now!
The city was supposed to have a space port and space agency, but after the rockets failed several times in a row, they used all the funding to build Acropolises!
Please tell me what you think!

Vellu Mar 7, 2015 7:35 PM

That cathedral looks very good. It's an obvious landmark. The view from the river front is also very nice. Nicely layered cityscape with the old low-rises in the front and the modern skycrapers rising behind them. Good job!

Skydragon42 Mar 8, 2015 11:08 PM

^^^^^^
Thank you very much:D
This section's buildings are done!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psrok6rfsi.jpg
A cool futuristic building!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pszdwmrtdp.jpg
A cool old fashioned building!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps69vxpv28.jpg
A group of cool buildings!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psnuoetyne.jpg
A great building!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psbgcjgxlu.jpg
Here is the skyline!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pscuakf2ip.jpg
And here is the next section!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psfrfwi10t.jpg
I'n going to start this section, and then put some trees in the other section!
Thats all for now, please tell me what you think!

Vellu Mar 21, 2015 6:05 PM

Some quite interesting buildings in there. The "old fashioned building" pleases my eye the most.

The skyline has nice density.

Skydragon42 Apr 1, 2015 5:34 PM

^^^^
Thanks very much!
I've finished the south section of downtown!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps01k5tdnk.jpg
Here are the river parks.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psbxnhmzct.jpg
I admit I got carried away with the trees...
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps20545pmj.jpg
Yep, I went over-bored!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psbgm1lrv9.jpg
A cool sky park!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psppbmzcge.jpg
The mini acropolis has trees now.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1vgzcpzi.jpg
The big park is almost a jungle now!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pst5j9hgzc.jpg
This is what happens when it's too cold outside, and I'm making a tropical city...
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psui4op1ri.jpg
Sadly I reached the limit of my computer, and could not have both shadows and trees in the model...
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pswpelsvxk.jpg
Thats it for now!
I'm going to remove the trees, as I just found out that if I copy them, it uses up more memory, but if I just use the components, it takes up less!
So I'll redo all of them, and have to models size cut down!

Vellu Apr 4, 2015 6:38 PM

I really like the diversity on that section. The riverside looks good too, but I think it could use more recreational space. And don't worry about the trees. It looks better and more realistic with a bigger number of them, although it's a good idea to use components with trees.

Thanks! But I already deleted all the trees:(
I'm redoing them now!
The park will look different, as it turns out those giant palm trees slow up the model way more them the others!
So there's going to be less of those!

Skydragon42 May 2, 2015 8:37 PM

So, I'm going to do more on the city!
Just not now!
I'm planing a huge Gothic futurism tower!
There will be a forest preserve!
And my Times square will return, so will the Rockefeller center!
Thats all, tell me if you have any suggestions for the city!

Skydragon42 May 17, 2015 8:44 PM

I'm still doing my city!
But I need to find a publisher for my book now, so all I had time to do is this new skyline shot, showing the new buildings!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pswzyncvkj.jpg
I can't believe the central part of the city is almost done!
I'm going to do a really ancient section of the city, with old roman styled buildings!
The city is going to be on an island, and there will be a beach-front section, with more skyscrapers!
So in all, there will be a midtown Manhattan section (thats what's there now) a downtown section, and the citys version of downtown Brooklyn and Jersey city!

Thats all for now, please tell me what you think!
