Coming soon to Remus City!
 
I'm going to add paths and doors to all of the most important buildings.
I'm going to make a completely new city hall!
There will be sky parks and sky lobby's on the Acropolis:D
And urban forestry in downtown!
Oh yea, there will be some new details for street views.

I would suggest adding simple parapets around the tops of some of the buildings.

I like the style but try to mix up the colors a bit, like some dark buildings or maybe even a red one.
nice work though!

Skydragon42 Jan 19, 2014 11:46 PM

Remus city is back!
 
Well sorry that I've been gone for too long, I was busy during the holidays. I also took a brake from making my city.
Now there are walkways to the most important buildings ( I will add doors).
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psde5ea8f8.jpg
I'm going to focus on the Acropolis. As you can see, there are now paths and doors.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps229be318.jpg
The Acropolis flying buttresses are no longer floating in the air.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps82ff1412.jpg
Well thats all, tell me what you think.

Patrick Jan 24, 2014 6:50 PM

Digging the mix of old & new, does Remus City take place in the present day or near future?

Skydragon42 Jan 24, 2014 10:29 PM

A small update of Remus city!
I am focusing on the Acropolis.http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9e7ce2bd.jpg
It is going slowly.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4d049d21.jpg
I have done just two levels so far.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3520631d.jpg
Oh yea, Remus city is set in the present day, when its all done, I want it to be a snapshot of the city in 2012.

Skydragon42 Feb 11, 2014 8:36 PM

Well, I finished the Acropolis:D
Here is a quick picture.http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pscecaeea4.jpg
A new view from the park!http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf2e4c347.jpg
The mega complex http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psd3f1ff26.jpg
There are now trees on the river front.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9528ebe0.jpg
Here are the door of the World trade center.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psbe3cbec3.jpg
Well thats all for now.

P.S. I know that the pictures are kind-of small, but there is a problem with my computer now and this is how I had to do them.

Skydragon42 Feb 24, 2014 1:02 AM

Well my computer is working better, that means big pictures.
I have a huge update for Remus city, a whole new section of the city!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps5ed09748.jpg
This will be the main theater district, and will have much more colorful buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3a09dd2f.jpg
Here is a large cinema on the right, Civic opera building in the middle and museum of natural history on the left.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1be81a86.jpg
Here are some of my best buildings, the curved one is a condominium. The large building on the right is actually five buildings connected at the top!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psa088dfc3.jpg
Here is a view of it looking up.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps52e9d15d.jpg
Here is a view of the twin wave hotels and the tsunami hotel! The green one is three hotels with a sky park! http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps87c8427e.jpg
This is an expansion of the catholic school.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psa56104b2.jpg
And this is a cool view from the park:)
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pse86da4d1.jpg
Well thats all for now, please tell me what you think.

Vellu Mar 1, 2014 7:40 PM

The view from the park is cool indeed! God job!

Skydragon42 Mar 9, 2014 12:11 AM

Well I have a new update for the city.
Look at that skyline!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...pseec98667.png
Here are the new buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf8a3c66a.jpg
There is a cool green tower!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps38bfdb5e.jpg
Smaller buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4af96f30.jpg
That pyramid is an arboretum!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psa8621a61.jpg
A neat area.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps14eb834f.jpg
Here are more of my weird shaped hotels:)
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psc2002b4a.jpg
Well, thats all for now. When I get done with this section of the city I will take a break and write more of my book.

Skydragon42 Mar 16, 2014 9:39 PM

Well, I've done the last six blocks of this section.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6d0cbd95.jpg
Here is a view looking up at the green tower.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps8f6c15fb.jpg
A much smaller cathedral, I'm not going to make this one fully detailed.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps8a76cb97.jpg
Two neat buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps51bb9f1e.jpg
Well thats all for now, I'm not really feeling good today:(

Vellu Mar 22, 2014 7:36 PM

Well, this city certainly is very diverse in terms of shapes and colours. I like how you're constantly coming up with new ideas!

Skydragon42 Mar 28, 2014 12:50 AM

^^^^^^
THank you:)

Make no little plans...
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps5a460350.jpg
The city's second tallest building at three thousand feet!
It was inspired by Extopea Shanghai.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6371e8c7.jpg
I am creating my own architectural style! Gothic futurism:D
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps89338f50.jpg
I really like that huge blue building!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psbe7dfb9d.jpg
Here are some neat buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3b0dabf6.jpg
More of my strange shape buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6391300f.jpg
This is a cool place!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4b6998c8.jpg
Thats it for now, I'm planing on re-texturing the Mega complex and maybe the Acropolis.

Vellu Apr 5, 2014 6:18 PM

Well, that second tallest truly is massive! It fits this city's feel perfectly. I'd like to see how it looks in the skyline.

Skydragon42 Apr 8, 2014 9:19 PM

^^^^^^^^^^
Thank you very much:D
I've re-textured the mega complex, now the different buildings can be distinguished apart! World trade center buildings on the right, light blue is World financial center and world stock exchange behind it.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps26cf1e66.jpg
Here is a new skyline view! The smaller acropolis is lined up with the big one in the city.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf3407b69.png
I want to re-texture the big acropolis, but I don't know which one to use!
So could someone tell me which one looks best?
first one.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3b9f6554.png
Second one.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1b49c94e.png
Third one.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4c8a42a3.png
Well thats all I have for now!

Vellu Apr 19, 2014 6:24 PM

I really like how the skyline is starting to look! Quite diverse with the bigger acropolis truly dominating. I like the second option for its texture the most. It think it fits the city's atmosphere better than the other options.

BillM Apr 25, 2014 1:26 PM

I like the 2nd and 3rd options. The colors are a little more muted in those.

I like the re-textured mega complex!

Skydragon42 Apr 29, 2014 9:06 PM

^^^^^
Thanks for the comments:D
I've done another section of the city.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4a27aece.jpg
I'm making it look more realistic, and I had mistextured one of the world trade center buildings.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6f2b15b3.jpg
Here is a cool silver building:)
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps4fb0017e.jpg
My cool green building is one thousand four hundred thirty feet tall!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf0426edc.jpg
Another gothic futurism building, these are hard to make!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf4f01c9f.jpg
Here is a monster of a building next to a modernized art deco building.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psf10a949b.jpg
A cool crystal building next to mini Shanghai financial center:haha:
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3369a5a2.jpg
And I listened to your suggestions and made the huge tower light blue with my best texture:D
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps98871375.jpg
Here is the next section of the city that I will do.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psa77c9f16.jpg
Well, thats all. Thanks to everyone who likes my city;)

Vellu Apr 30, 2014 6:15 PM

I really like how acropolis dominates the city. It's like this huge queen building with the busy bustling worker buildings hurrying around its feet in somekind of a building nest :-)

Skydragon42 May 9, 2014 5:47 PM

^^^^^^^^^
It's the Queen of the city:haha:
I've made a new park!
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psc450c19b.jpg
This park was once part of the jungle that dominated the island before the city was built.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...psc7b9753a.jpg
Some sections where clear cut, and some sections only the underbrush was cut.
The two round ponds are artificial, the other two are natural.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps991db3d1.jpg
A small part of the jungle is mostly intact, the underbrush is gone though.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9dd72b91.jpg
Here is a view inside the jungle, it is not as dense as it once was, and you can see the second acropolis in the background.
http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/...ps48d608d4.jpg
Thats all for now, I'm really happy with the new park:D
