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.

The tall tower at the north of the park!

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

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...

Thanks, it does have a very neat shape, it's probably my best building
I've done a lot of buildings in the city!

Here are some old style buildings.

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!

Thats everything, tell me what you think

The central business district is almost done!

Here are some new buildings.

A view showing some historic buildings of downtown!

A weird ally like the real one in my city!

Another one, when I walk past the real one, it just looks so weird!

A cool street view!

An urban canyon!

Looking up at my twin towers!

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!

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!

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!

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.

Gothic perfection!

My own architectural style, Gothic futurism!

More of it!

A view from the river front.

Here is a huge blue building!

One of my favorite towers! You can see an old palace in the background!
Acropolis number two!

This mini Acropolis is based off of Mauville City from Pokemon Alpha sapphire!

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!

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!

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!

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

The skyline has nice density.

Thanks very much!
I've finished the south section of downtown!

Here are the river parks.

I admit I got carried away with the trees...

Yep, I went over-bored!

A cool sky park!

The mini acropolis has trees now.

The big park is almost a jungle now!

This is what happens when it's too cold outside, and I'm making a tropical city...

Sadly I reached the limit of my computer, and could not have both shadows and trees in the model...

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!
