Thanks guys

It's actually easier than you think!

You just have to remember the measurements you made on everything to make it the same but you can always use the tool to check on old marks if you forgot.

I didn't exactly nail the style anyways. I was mainly referring to the Deco Deistrict of Miami, and mine's not really Deco. I just thought the colors would give it away!

Here is another new small building.



These little ones are all just the beginning of a high density lowrise spread all over the city with pretty much buildings touching but some with alleyways. I am doing this instead of all skyscrapers to have a "complete" feeling instead of emptyness. Of course, high-rises will be made where I feel it is necessary for them.

Thank you. Those two office towers are enough high-rises for now, this is not a huge city.

I appreciate the comment teras.

I just want to mention again incase it was misunderstood, there will be more high rise buildings but I am mainly focusing on the traditional downtown style of many lowrise buildings touching (mine are 6" apart because textures overlap otherwise, but they appear to be connected) for now.

A new office building was constructed on the corner of the block. Now this entire side is filled and I will begin work on the other side of the block.



It may look like there's a lot of people down there, but, believe it or not, this is one of the least busiest areas of the city!



The building is home to a bunch of small companies and some professional's offices like doctors, dentists, and psychiatrists.



Possibly a high-rise apartment back here



More soon to come!
