    Default September/October Entry: K-City Downtown

    OK, I'm in. Who can't resist to make a city map ?
    I will try to create K-City Downtown, modern style, in Bryce. I've never done this before, but first experiments look good .

    Cool. My only suggestion is to vary the heights of the buildings a little bit...will look a little boring if they're all the same height. Also, adding some greebles to the tops of the buildings might be cool. Finally, this looks more like a business park than a downtown area. If you throw in some nice landscaping I think it'd complete that look. If you did, then you could make the area beyond the part you're detailing into a carpet of buildings to give some background. Just some thoughts.

    Thanks Aval, I wonder how much time I must invest to get the level of detail I have in mind.

    "I wonder how much time I must invest to get the level of detail I have in mind. "

    Knowing you, and your eye for detail... A LOT. But (for the rest of us) it will be worth it

    Thanks RJB and JT! I am progressing very slow with this map, had to change the buildings with round elements from a heightmap to boolean objects (not finished yet) and started with the park to set a scale. Adding greebles, like mearrin suggested, would be nice for the roofs, but I think it is not possible in the way as it is in 3DMax or Blender (scripts) for Bryce. If I have the time to implement this the only way I see at the moment is with the bump or displacement effect (I am a noob to Bryce and try to learn it a bit with this map).
