I just keep my hands off these city-idea.

I'll keep you informed on improvements.

Very nice job :). The first one looks like my Coruscant project from a while back, but with better texturing ;).

This is interesting.  I'd like to see it with a night shot with lights in the buildings and streets.  Or not.   ;D
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Volker Harun

Calico is kidding again  ;D

Old_blaggard ... I missed that one, or it is long ago!?!

Nonetheless, I rearranged the nodes and am able to control the city quite well.

Next step is to get some more organic variations.

I'm not kidding about the lights.  You could use the Paint Shader with a population of lights...errr, or can we make a population of lights?

I already hav an idea for placing windows on the buildings - first I have to refine the shader-setup again ... after that I go for time consuming add-ins ,-) ;)

Nice use of the software! In the current incarnation, it would work great as a backdrop/matte painting or for surface detailing like the old-school modelmakers used to do. What did they call those little doo-dads they'd add to give visual interest and scale to something like the Death Star? Something like Nurnies and Gurbles?

Cool.

Volker Harun

Nurnies and Greebles ... yes.

Still working on some improvements that not only work on the XZ-Plane but in space ... went a bit off the topic myself, as I got some fascination to functions.
Some decent results soon.

Volker Harun

Just to keep you on track.
A two day old render on some sine and cosine functions.

I am refining now.

Dystopia!  Can't wait to see the final result.

How incredibly unique and interesting.  Keep going!

Okay here is another Sine and Cosine function procedural ...

Next to come is a combination of the last ones with some more interesting distributions. ... Though still have some other variations in mind ...

Volker Harun

Stopping this project right now due to an unresolvable bug ... as soon as possible, I'll return.

rcallicotte

Well, I'm watching.  This is interesting.

What were you trying to do that didn't work?
Howgh!
