WTF? Marketing is crossing the line into Alice's Wonderland.

I love two of the new buildings, nice textures both the painted ones, and the antique photo ones.
gut werke!

Austin55 Jun 12, 2008 6:31 AM

heres a fun story I wrote for yall,inspired by treres's flood scene. only mines waaaay better:P hehe,I JK treres.


A tornado warning has been ussued for Felix county and surronding counties,expiering at approx. 5:30.

Reporter Tim Ryan: A rare Tornado has formed in Contreres,the city across the the bay from San Felix. the tornado is rapidly growing and appears to be heading for San Felix. our on site reporter Lara Jenkins in near the funnel cloud. Lara,can you tell us more?

Lara- Yea tim,Im watching the tornado from a distance but it has become very large,it sounds exactly like a frieght train whizzig right past your ear. there is a lot of flying debris and stuff,just a second ago we saw a man who was hit by a falling traffic lite and Impaled,but an ambulance quickly arrived and we dont know his state.

Tim- good lord lara,it sounds terrible there,well stay safe and keep us covered.

Lara- Thanks Tim,I will.

Tim- we are turning to our chopper reporter in chopper 55,Dale

Dale- hey tim,the tornado has grown into a massive size,probably fueled by the el nino winds,its shredding everything to weak in its path,in it absoulutly huge now,a few city blocks across. we have great views from the chopper but its starting to gt dangerous up here tim.

Tim-thanks dale,were going back to lara now to check up on her condition,lara?

Lara- Tim,we were just trying to drive out of the way,but we were litterly blown of the road,our van is stuck in a ditch now,but were almost out. that shows you how powerful this tornado is,its starting to pick up huge things like semi trucks and houses,worst yet it seems to be heading for downtown. If you live anywhere in san felix,evacute to safety now,were dealing with a very powerful thing here.

Dale- tim,the tornado is crossing into the bay,there are huge waves picking up now.

Tim-thanks dale and lara,we are now reporting widespread poweroutages all across SF.

Dala- the tornado,err waterspout now, is picking boats right out of the water and just hurtling them in all directions,I swear I just saw a boat go into the galcorp building downtown.

Tim- this is a truelly epic situation,dear lord.

Dale- waves are smacking boats into the walls of piers and shattering them,then the tornado picks up the pieces and hurtles them like misseles.

Lara- were back on the move again,the tornado is about to make landfall on the Downtown penninsula.

Tim- Downtown is one of the most populated and dense areas in the world,and is home to many landmarks and ecinomical POI's. if downtown is hit this will be a terrible disaster.

Dale- the tornado has made landfall and is ripping trees out of Governers's park,were gonna fly closer to get a better look. oh my gosh! our blades were just hit with debris were going down,om my lord!! dea....

Tim- umm,it appears we just lost contact with dale,his chopper may have crashed.

Lara- Tim,was that Chopper 55 that just flew into that skyscraper?

Tim- I dont know...

Lara- ow lord.

Lara- anyway,the tornado has entered downtown,we are in governers park,we finnaly have a picture. you can see things like electric transformers exploding.

Tim- this looks terrible!

Lara-we are heading downtown with the twister,theres debris everywhere,heres a new picture from central square

Tim- are alot of buildings being destroyed?

Lara-yes,from what we can tell,its totaling about 25% of the buildings in its dirct path.

Tim-so there is already a signifigant loss of life,I presume?

Lara- most likely.

Lara- the twister is heading for SF's tallest buildings,the James complex

Lara- weve headed further down, its passed james tower now.

Tim- whats it like on the grou..

Lara- Dear lord!! there is no James builindg,its gone!!


Lara- It looks earily similar to 9/11 down here,buildings collapsing,people running,smoke and debris filling the streets,this is terrible. its heading for ya tim,watch out. its currently at Piccaso Plaza.

Tim- here at the echo building we can see small pieces of debris sliding down the road and people running,its like a monster movie.

Lara- makes me think of Cloverfield. heres some more pictures

Lara-hmm there not coming through.

Lara- Tim,were heading for cover with you now,well see ya thier.

Lara- new picture

Tim- Ok,see ya here,in the meantime,if incase youre jus tuneing in theres a massive tornado in downtown San Felix,it appears to be heading south now towards La Vista.

Lara- ok tim,im here.

Lara- Im lara Jenkins here with Tim Ryan reporting live from San Felix's GIENC,the tornado is tearig apart everting in its path and is heading straight for us now,were going to go and take cover,but heres one last picture before we hunker down.

Lara- the building is collapsing!

Tim- Omigo....

the end:) lol,I hope yur hands are sweating:P I made the texture in paint.

verticalextropy Jun 12, 2008 8:30 AM

:haha: lol Austin, I couldnt sleep, and this just made my day! You're the funniest!

Austin55 Jun 12, 2008 8:54 AM

LOL my avatar makes it better, I think I'm gonna do acloverfield thing with ma kitty

dude I never laughed so hard at myself.

Tim's response is truly epic. Omg I'm gonna report this in the cityscape thread forever. Someone archive it LOL

verticalextropy Jun 12, 2008 8:56 AM

yeah do a building covered with a texture of your cat

Austin55 Jun 12, 2008 8:59 AM

funny thing is when I was writing I was like wow this is gonna be great, i bet thell be sweating, nut now I'm on the floor laughing.

The first picture is prety tight though.

Patrick Jun 12, 2008 9:44 AM


i doubt buildings would collapse from tornados though.

Austin55 Jun 12, 2008 9:58 AM

probably not but that wouldve made a boring story. Most would probably be filled with absbestos and be dameged badly to the point where you have to implode em. Look at fort worth. I bet if you had 400 mph winds a boats and stuffs flying at those speeds you could do some serious damage. You screw up one floor badly and the whole thing could go, nut there should be enough support.
Ughh, I'm
gonna stop before I go all 9/11

Patrick Jun 12, 2008 11:22 AM

Buildings collapse, I hate how people use 9/11 as an attack against Disaster movies and such. I wouldnt find it offensive if a building collapsed in a movie because, hey, buildings collapse.

Austin55 Jun 13, 2008 1:43 AM

seriosly, people get so snappy nowadays, or they just have no sense of humour.

Patrick Jun 13, 2008 10:27 PM

Looking through the first page, I'm missing some old buildings.

Did you bring back the World Financial Center styled plaza?
Will you ever bring back the Californian Plaza (the three towerd plaza)

What about #1 #2 #3?

Aleks Jun 13, 2008 10:47 PM

I like three more than 1 and 2 but they just need some base textures and whatnot and they will look great. Haha, nice tornado. I was thinking about the Discovery Channel but Patrick already mentioned it.

It'd be fine to have a few buildings fall. Say the tornado passed over an army base and pulled up like dozens of missiles which later collided with the buildings and made this huge KJHFKSHGFKAWBHOIEW noise and everything was chaos!

Austin55 Jun 13, 2008 11:44 PM

Patrick- I didnt Plan on bringin those back, IPulled em while ago, but they could come back near or in the gienc.

Alot of buildings from Californian plazas time will necoming back, Wilson ofices, palm condos, the fisher building, BOA, greenwhich, the twins, etc will be coming back later on. The Fisher Building temporarly reappered not long ago

Austin55 Jun 21, 2008 6:55 AM


I love this shot


Austin55 Jun 21, 2008 8:45 PM

The GIENC-Global Information Economy News Center is very close to completion.

heres the original plan,just for kicks\

These building are old,and are returning per request by Patrick,they will be redone and imroved.

The centerpiece is SF's tallest building-the Echo Electronics corparation,Echo makes,develops,desighns,etc just about anything with wires,from NASA super computers to heated blankets and everything in between,the base contains showrooms for its latest developments.

The lowrise,the GIENC building,soaked with advertisments it contains the headquarters for many news companies. Originally slated for demolition in 2000,the building was purchased jointly by James and Echo who renovated the building and gave it a compltly new shape and reclad,this eventually led to the ideas of the GIENC and since several new ultramodern buildings have been built here.

some random square,shadowed by the San Felix Times building,and another lowrise.

Some overviews

If you would like anadvertisment in there Ill gladly put it in for ya.

Thanks for lookin,tell me what you think please :)

Mocholate Jun 22, 2008 1:18 AM

Hook me up with Oo1 !!! Baby got set-back !

Actually i could rape your whole city. :cool:

Mocholate Jun 22, 2008 1:45 AM

Oh i forgot . Sydney is rather crampy. It would have similar density to lower Manhatten if it had the height. I know this because its imposible to get a tan in Sydney :cool:

Austin55 Jun 22, 2008 10:42 PM

Hahaha I made a 2d picture of SF and uploaded it to the house just to see the reaction and it became my most popular model in a day. easily beatin out even my classic skyscraper models,and Its already got a rating,:haha:

Mocholate Jul 9, 2008 9:51 AM

Good work sweet I like it !

I have to check out your new 3D warehouse stuff :cool:

J.M. Jul 9, 2008 1:55 PM

One of the Buildings look pretty much identical to One Financial Square in New York City, other than that its a great looking city.

Austin55 Jul 19, 2008 9:16 PM


but only a boring,sucky sneaka peaka

Mocholate Jul 20, 2008 3:13 AM

McNice :D

Can you detail the spire of the one thats about 5th from the right of screen,with the blue windows-The name is on the tip of my finger!

yabill Oct 20, 2012 6:08 PM

Austin55 Oct 20, 2012 11:51 PM

The file no longer exists.

Dac150 Oct 21, 2012 3:01 PM

SketchupFan Dec 15, 2012 8:38 AM

Amazing City

Codster121 Jun 9, 2015 9:42 AM

Nice city, it looks like it could be a real city. :)

Please look at my city of Lakeport.

Austin55 Jun 9, 2015 9:51 AM

Lol this...

Codster121 Jun 9, 2015 10:07 AM

Where the buildings are placed, and they way are shaped and textured all makes the city have very realistic density, and skyscraper mass.

What do you think of my roads?
