I’ve tried to create a picture like this for some time – a cityscape with layers of different types of building like real cities have. I started this attempt earlier today and I think its my best attempt to date. Its built up of several CityEngine created models and a few from Cornucopia 3D. The foreground is the new Favela Houses at Cornucopia 3D along with some basic Vue plants. The mid ground is buildings created using the CityEngine Paris 2010 project. Behind that is a narrow row of CityEngine’s science fiction WizardCity and the tallest towers are from the modern city project.
I’d like to have included some cars and people in the foreground and possibly a plane in the sky but my 32 bit system couldn’t really cope with anymore models in the scene once I assembled it in Vue 9.
