Really hoping to see some awesome postmodern buildings like the ones in Minneapolis! I was going to comment on the abundance of empty lots but seeing how this is the 1970's, it's actually a pretty accurate reflection of the large scale urban renewal happening across the country at the time.

Anyways, I hope you've worked on Lakeport since your last post, while this sub forum has seen busier days, I'm sure many of us, including myself, have been lurking and checking for updates. Also, I'm very flattered that the Westport Center was based off of One Galcorp Plaza. Feel free to put in a Galcorp midwestern headquarters in Lakeport.
Patrick, i am glad to see you are back and working on Staunton again, i am still working on Lakeport, and i do plan to add many new postmodern buildings, most of the new development will be around I-235 and the riverfront, Mansions will be built around Eagle Lake. How tall do you think i should make the new Galcorp midwestern Headquarters?

I am in the process of optimizing the city, because it has become quite slow, mainly because the sidewalks are extruded, and i am flattening most of the roads.

Lakeport Skyline from Eagle Lake, May 3rd 1978. (Actual update soon.)


Here is a map of the city so far, within it's border.

Looking forward to seeing the 1980's postmodern boom! Is that a new tallest I see? The massing reminds me of the Capella Tower in Minneapolis, one of my favorites! Postmodernism is my all time favorite architectural style, it's difficult for me to find a building built in that era that I don't like, no matter how tacky!

As for Galcorp, I've always envisioned it as the world's largest corporate conglomerate with ties in pretty much every industry (GalOil, GalAirlines, GalFinancial, GalFoods) and lobbyists on both sides of the political fence, all ran by the ultra wealthy Staunton-based Galviston family. Their signature buildings are all known for being imposing and are usually black boxes. I've been thinking of recladding Staunton's Galcorp World Headquarters but I'm still on the fence about that. With that being said, I'm excited to see Galcorp's Midwestern Headquarters!

That capella-like tower is 770ft and is home to the Galileo Corporation.

Also, i am currently reconstructing the entire road network and building new highways for Lakeport, but i have built a few new blocks of buildings for the next update.

I posted this picture because i want to know what you guys think of this before i add it to Lakeport.
The eastern shore of Superior River will be quite industrious, with a large rail yard surrounded by factories and warehouses.

The rail yard looks good! However weren't you saying the model was getting slow because of the detail? Perhaps it would be better to leave the yard as a texture since we probably won't be seeing much of it? Looking forward to the final result!

Those trains are deceptive. They are very low poly, and use projected google maps textures. The trains will be uploaded to the 3D Warehouse when i finish them, like the grain, gondola and flatbed cars.

Very good job on the low-poly trains! They will be great props for the city.

The skyline looks really nice.
