| Hiya all,|
I am willing to pay 100 to 200 pounds for good 3D Mega City Models but it would be nice if there was 3D Free City or Mega City models.
So far I found
the price is 161 pounds.
is there any 3D City or MegaCity that are better models and better value for moneys?
| The geometry is very simple - why don't you make your own building based on those screenshots? It wouldn't be difficult at all. |
| You should have bought this 4 months ago when the coupon code was available - I paid £101.42 UK for it.|
However, I still think it is good value at £161.00.
Do a search on Turbosquid - seach in '3D models' for 'city'.
A cheaper alternative - $199 (roughly £100): http://www.turbosquid.com/FullPreview/Index.cfm/ID/187581
| hey justluke,|
which 3D Modelings do you think I should used to make 3D City Mesh?
thank puki and I would be buying that :)
| Hmm, I'm not sure. Do you have any 3d modelling experience? From looking at the screenshots that you and Puki have posted links to, it would seem that most of the buildings are very simple geometric shapes. Most entry level 3d modeller should be good enough to create similar models, but I'm rather clueless about the latest entry level software packages. I only know about Lightwave, really, and that's way too expensive and complex for your needs.|
To be honest, the textures make or break these type of models. Decent textures = decent buildings. Poor quality textures = odd-looking lumpy boxes. If you have access to a digital camera (and any reasonably modern real-life town or city) then this shouldn't be a problem.
| I used 3D World Studio :) |
| I can import models such as .CSM and .Wmp (A6 Map) |
3D World Studio
Is a world building tool not a modeler.
You need something like Blender or AC3D there are others.
You need something that can export 3DS or DirectX.
There is a tool that comes with 3D World Studio that converts 3DS and DirectX files to a format that 3D World Studio can use.
| depending on the level of interaction with said buildings you could get away with just boxes and a really decent texture|
aside from a dabble of a neighbours need for speed on xbox the only urban driving game ive played was the rather shitty midtown madness demo i doubt chicago is that small and the scale seemed wrong for alot of things (the base ball feild for one) kinda like having an action man (the old foot tall ones) stood next to an xwing (although the analogy would be great for macross zentradi (sp) warriors ;) )
| AC3D is good modelings software :) |
| I would use Milkshape3d for the meshes and then use blitz to place em in the world :) |
