Havent been in San Felix for a while and, this is very good Austin, by incorporating the waterfront you've got a real skyline there.
Kudos

St. Regis? My cities aren't special enough to have St. Regis.

I love the Baytown condo's. The shape has a really modern feel to it and the textures really go with it. The only thing you should change is the St Regis logo. Paint it golden or some fancy rich people color like red. The Galcorp Towers are one of my favorite in the city. So clean with small windows but the blue facade looks great.

Idk, I'm rendering some buildings with textures and they looks great. Do you change the fog color so that the sky looks different? I do that sometimes to make sunset shots, well before I started to render. You should also control the shadows because you can make it night if you set darkness at 100% and light at 0%. Just play around and post some shots. It's gonna look great watch.

no,I dont use fog for that. I turn the fog Pink,and use it like a green screen to photoshop skys. theres no pink in the city,so thats why I use pink.

Also,I have several hundred textures on thousends of faces,so yeah,rendering isnt fun.

I really dont use shadows,it cuts the performance by about 130%,and im to lazy.

You can just turn them on when taking a picture. And when you move turn them off.

It's been awhile. Nice views Some of the best angles your city has ever been shot from. The building on the right side in the first pic with the black glass and white edges is awesome! I know it's been there, but I don't remember seeing it that close before. A top view of everything would be great, to get an idea of the setup. I imagine it has changed since the last time a top view was shown.

Deleting crappy buildings is a great idea, San Felix's skyline is a bit crowded, and yes Seattle and LA have several empty lots in between, but overall those are what keep the skylines from becoming to East Coast like.

Sounds great Austin. I like that black box too. And the small blue building in the last shot. I like that you're gonna base some of the skyline from Seattle. I do love the plaza's we have and the empty lots but sadly, a lot of those things are disappearing. We're getting great buildings though and parks pop up all the time here so it's ok.
