Here are two quick Vue 9 renders of work in progress models made with CityEngine 2010.3 Indie. Since I got CityEngine in November I’ve been tinkering with it working on trying to get to grips with its CGA language and make some semi realistic models. Yesterday, after coming across some photographs of architectural models of Soviet Constructivist building schemes, I decided to see if I could get CityEngine to generate similar looking models.
So far I’ve got a seven different lot layouts and a simple square tower building. The colours used for the buildings on a lot are uniform and selected randomly from a set of predefined combinations. I want to add a couple more simple building types (rectangle, cylinder, large H, large L and large O). I also want to drive the road colours with a colour map so they can become bold lines running through the images.
Overall though for maybe five hours gentle effort I’m pleased with the progress so far.
The first model is made with a simple road network with the rules applied to it.
The second model was made with the same simple road network scaled so there were more lots with the same rules applied to it.
