Video Timelapse of me designing a skyscraper - AutoCAD

Hey everyone, this is my first time in this area of the forum, and this is my very first skyscraper design. It's not much.. I'm no architect, I mostly just designed it as I went, and obviously it still needs to be textured.

I made a cool little timelapse video of me making it in AutoCAD (the video is about 2:30 min, condensed from ~25min)

here are some pics so far




elevation view with really bad lighting




I like how it turned out, what do you guys think?

Cool video, but it made me feel like an old idiot. I can barely log on a computer, and to watch something like that is amazing to me. Thanks for the show.

It's not about what you don't have—it's the little you're given, and how far you can run with it.

That was awesome. Compared to most of my CAD work, that can whoop my ass and then some.

Sure, if you want it. I don't know anything about modeling in sim city though. is there a way to convert autocad files to sc4 files?
