Pretty cool. The repetition isn't terribly obvious when you break it up like that. Anything that makes building a city easier is wicked awesome.
The only issue I'd have with using something like this is that there isn't any "organization" to the buildings. I was trying to imagine some way to change that...but can't with a repeating tile. I think you'd have to do something more like the "geomorphs" TSR and some others came out with back in the day.
This texture is not really meant to place all your buildings strategically, but to give you something to work with without have to draw each one individually.

It's not perfect by any means, and it won't get you a city without having to put a bit of work into it... but it does provide a place to start. And, depending on how you use it, it's scalable, which is handy.
This is great.
I did a few more here if your interested. Theres a few different types. I hope they are still uploaded.
Oh and there was some more but not in seamless sheets of them here
It would be so nice if we could get the auto placement thing sorted out then we could generate the cities automatically.

yoink... I'm playing with cities in gimp... this I'll be quite useful!
Great! Be sure to show us a WIP so we can see what you did with it.
