Awesome Vertical. Are you using Kerk for those renders?

This is going to be a great city. I was thinking about making renders of my city too but it's too big to add lights and people so I'll just stick with Sketchup. Besides reners take too long and I'm impatient.

Thank you Aleks, thank you Dac! I am using Kerky and my own textures and actually no lights but the sun (xcept in that one) as it makes it so much faster (less than 10m so far but it's only 4 buildings)

December 20, 1972

It was a glorious morning in the valley as Midas Mulligan Jr. cut the ribbon of his new project. At the same time his archrival Ellsworth Hootey was preparing to do just the same.
Two huge properties occupying two lots each have been inaugurated today just a block from each other:

Mulligan's "Hotel Bauen" rises 109 meters above the ground and offers 4 (other sources will say 5) star accomodation along its 33 floors.

Awesome, your Sketchup abilities have improves faster and faster. I like the Phi Towers more. Those are nice looking.What you should do is convert meters to feet so all the lazy people like me don't have to.

Yeah, I knew this would happen. Land scape basically makes a city. Literally. It allows you to decide what goes where and how a place looks or will look.
