hmm, perhaps i do recognize the shape, at least part of it the ferry piers for example.

San felix's Award winning Museum of Transportation and enginering,the sloping glass area are multi story atriums and the central spine of the museum contains the exhibits. the building goes three stories underground,including the glass atriums,which drop straight into the water and offer amazing underwater views of the bay,fish and the ferry's coming in and out. Visible to the left.

Also not the Marine Buiding and Civic Center/

0o1 Tower,possibly the most elgant tower in SF.

yay

My tower is pretty elegant. I never brought Tower 55 back (maybe the new one should be called 55th & Austin or 55 at Austin St.) but it will appear in Port Pacific. When I read the first paragraph I thought you were talking about 0o1 Tower but then I saw building you were actually talking about and it made more sense.

Ha, my tower looks nice there.

Austin55 Jun 8, 2008 7:13 AM

yeah,its very sleek,if you wanted a hot skyscraper for a girlfriend,this would be the one:haha: (dear lord,MO's not here)I based it of a crown of a mexican king/ruler. Cool,I loved 55 plaza or whatevar it was,it was really good.

Breaking News-A major milestone has been reached,all of SF's major skyscrapers are back in the city,and the skyline is MASSIVE!! oh yes, have created a monster. possibly one of the longest skylines in SU.

these shots are far from finished,but I just wanted to see how itd look.

San Felix,the amazing shrinking city!:haha:

Aleks Jun 8, 2008 7:35 AM

Wait. I see that Galcorp has a new building? I liked the old twin towers better.

opps,no, that red brick building is from the old city,must of accindentally got placed there. good eye though.

does the skyline look OK overall?

Aleks Jun 8, 2008 7:58 AM

Yeah, looks better than the ~190 MB version and even better than the 48MB one. I like that it's long and the buildings are realistically spaced far enough from one another. Before it seemed to be a little too dense and confusing but now everything flows.

Dac150 Jun 8, 2008 3:33 PM

Very attractive skyline Austin. I love the break in the middle which makes it look as if there are two different cities.

Patrick Jun 9, 2008 12:26 AM

I have mixed feelings about the new San Felix. While the buildings have improved, the Skyline has been flattened and too spread out, although it is based on Sydney, the skyline is just too flat, I really liked San Felix's original skyline (last version) with its three towered clusters, now those three towers seem smaller.

Although, this isnt nessicarily a bad thing, I suggest putting two or three tall buildings (but not taller, close in height) around the three tallest buildings.

That's very interesting.

verticalextropy Jun 9, 2008 3:49 AM

I like the new version, it is spareced, but also more detailed, and the low rises, I can't emphasize enough how they make the hi rises look better.
Maybe somewhat plain, you should continue recycling your buildings with Patrick's savy suggestion of the base and top.
Mulligan is like 19.5 mb and it has about a tenth of the number of buildings of S.F.

Staunton is completely -and smartly- textured, while other cities rely on polygons for detail. Patrick do you say it's the components?

.

well ofcourse,cause I havnt added any fillers yet,but itll look better soon:)

oh,the old one had like 500 3d trees:haha: that was about 40MB in itself:rolleyes:

Peter Jun 10, 2008 4:40 AM

I'm surprised SU even ran a 190 MB file!! You must have an awesome computer!

The updated San Felix is great!

And I think it's time Echo got a new texture. :yes:

Xeelee Jun 10, 2008 3:02 PM

One guy from work thought this was real.


Neat city by the way... :)
