    Default City Engine Streetmaps

    I'm playing with the auto street generation feature in City Engine (don't have the time at the moment to relearn the coding stuff like making and texturing buildings) ... one really nice feature is that you can export the streets and lots as .DXF files, which means that you can import them into a vector editor and you have lovely crisp lines. Attached is an example (which took about 5 mins to make - I'm sure it shows), where I was just dialling different settings at random and 'growing' the city street network with those new settings. Exported to Serif Drawplus and then saved as a .pdf. The zoomability is fantastic. No loss of resolution and the file size is 180 kb. Each lot is a separate vector object - great for editing.

    Vector Rocks for cities!
