Chicago City In 3d

Recommended Posts

Hello folks!Let me introduce myself. I'm Alexandre Vieira, from Azores (9 islands on the atlantic north), Portugal. I love aviation of course but I'd like to be a 3D designer :( I went to Chicago some weeks ago and I got a passion by the Chicago's buildings, so, I tried making the Chase Building, and next made more one, and more one, so, I decided "Let's make all the city in 3D!" B) But although, this is to get personal experience =)Here are some shots: (from Gmax)Sears Tower (please note that the left building has been refurbished, it's the one it's "down" the sear's)Sears3.jpg311SWackerDrive.jpg333.

I looked. I was impressed. I was jealous of your skills. Now I wish you would make a trip to Hawaii and get motivated to design those objects. :( Best to you, Alexandre. Looks like it will be a nice addition to the FSX world.

It seems nobody liked it... :(
Beautiful buildings are great in FS, but maintaining minimum framerates is greater.

Excellent work, Alexandre! :( Your skills seem as though they may well be able to fill in the many missing gaps in the FS Chicago scenery.Would you also consider doing Navy Pier and the Art Institute (missing from FS for many years!)?Many thanks for your skilled efforts with this project! :( GaryGB

Thanks! I think so far I'll do just the day ones, the nightmaps give a lot of work, but I shall make it after.

Great work any chance these will be for FS9 also any chance you might want to go an off site Chicago city location and do the UAL WHQ out in Elk Grove Village :)

ahuimanu, you mean some tips of how I modeled them? If it's that, the program is gmax, the textures are taken from some photos and Google Earth 3D's buildings. I'm thinking in releasing for FS9 but for FSX I'm not quite sure yet...I'll see Thanks for the comment :(Here's a general view:Prespective_view.jpgThere are some buildings yet to be putted, but I think it's nice so far.

Here's a preview of Chicago Title Trust (Bank?) Building:Chicago_Title_Trust_building.jpgIt's a funny story. In Dec '08, I tried to make this one but it was very hard to me and I gave up making it...yesterday I tried to do it again and I did it! I got very happy! :(
