Gold Coast City - Australia

Gold Coast City - Queensland , Australia


A new city starts to spring to life 3km's west of Surfers Paradise on Queensland's Gold Coast .

The area's population grows rapidly and is renamed Gold Coast City





I promise to stick with this one

Yes it's very tempting to do something too futuristic

These noobs are unnamed



Not sure if i like the tall one

I think you can get away with it, but I wouldn't model any of your future buildings off of it. It's a bit of a stretch being what you want your city to look like, but like I said, it's not to the point where it looks too futuristic for the city.

Try to use buildings in L.A., Houston, Dallas, & Atlanta for your guides.

I love it too. The buildings look awesome and I'm liking the futuristic feeling of the city. And yeah, L.A, and Dallas have some pretty modern slick buildings but you can also look at some Asian cities for inspiration like Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chong Qing and a little of Beijing.

Can't wait to see this city grow; the tall building is o.k. but I feel like smaller ones can bring more attention to them. This one is plain and tall which is good for tall buildings(ex. SWFC, Freedom Tower, Burj Dubai). Maybe some antennas would make it look better of some kind of roof feature.

This is awesome Mo! They are perfect. The Bristol Insurance towers are my favorite. The gold trim is unique and gives a more elegant modern feel.

I missed comments in my own thread ?

The mound in the reflection is just the hillside background - you'll see that later

Thanks all

Not much new stuff - i've been busy modeling ground detail and stuff but here i have reduced Bristol insurance and Benowa Insurance buildings size and moved a few things and experimenting with a silver look on Bristol .
I had lunch today with Bristol towers influence ' Aon tower' at Darling harbour-Sydney in full view, After a few oysters i had to restrain myself from trying to have sex with it

The water looks like a river of mercury. So shiny and delicious.

You changed some colors. I'd like to see a little more density but it looks good now. And will you keep working on this city or pause it like last time?
