Lightbulb Sketch-Up Projects

I don't have a very long attention span, so I move from project to project on Sketch-Up easily. I figured that I'd post a bunch here, ending them with a city I'm working on that I finally think will stick (and I'll make a thread for once I get a little further into it, and figure out how to get non-shitty textures since I don't have enough hard-drive space for photoshop).

Here we go! Keep in mind that just about everything here is around half-way done, since I usually stop when it gets to texturing time, since I have no good textures whatsoever.

1.) Ballpark - Spent a good amount of time on this until texturing. I based it on a HOK-retro brick type stadium that are prominent nowadays.


2.) Bridge - Based on Golden Gate Bridge. Was to be in a city that was never actually started after I designed the bridge.


3.) Vegas-style City - Got started, but stopped because there's really only so much you can do with a city like this.


4.) Current Project
This city is based on Pittsburgh's layout and architecture, with some of my own style thrown in. I've finally found something that I think I can work with, so if I can figure out this texture situation, this should grow pretty quickly. It's an immense layout (was even bigger, but I truncated it because it was so huge before), so it'll probably kill my computer, but we'll see what happens.




Feedback?


Thanks for looking!

Wow, you've got some great stuff there! I like the bridge, will it find its way into your new city at some point? I can't wait to see more!

Depends on what I do with the layout of the city. I really liked the bridge, I just don't know what to do with it basically. I don't think the layout of this city will permit it. I'll probably use it in the future though.


Don't be surprised to see the baseball park though. I'll probably do a football stadium too, and an arena for that matter. We'll see.

Very Nice! You should start a thread with your new city! Hopefully you can include that sexy bridge in it!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who traced over a real world city

Yeah, I traced over Pittsburgh and then reshaped it a little bit. I couldn't get the layout the way I wanted it on my own so I figured that I could take Pittsburgh's and then reshape some places to get it to where I need it.

Slow infill continues. Still no textures, name, geographic placement, or history. Getting there.

Baseball field, in time. Bridge, I doubt it.

I can truthfully say that the buildings I've made for this city are the best bunch I've come up with so far. I've made some good ones before I think, but these are probably the best. I don't have a clue where my inspiration/creativity is coming from, because a week ago I couldn't come up with SHIT.


I still don't know have a clue what to do about textures...anyone got suggestions?

No, no, no, applying textures is definitely not my problem. I got that already (Las Vegas city picture). I just don't have any textures that are worth using. I won't put any that i have on the buildings in the city because they're shit.
