Bank Of Canada - Toronto

This is a 100% fictional building I created summer 2013 as an experiment in using different techniques on creating glass (as a quick tutorial for members in chat). The Simtropolis chat community loved it so much they asked for it to be exported in the game. Unfortunately I have no intention of exporting this building. With the cleaning of my computer, this is better uploaded to the Simtropolis community.

This scene has a real good taste of how I actually create my glass for my exported buildings! Download at your own risk.

STATS:
Poly count: 1,685,955 (high, mainly due to tree foliage)
Dependencies Included: Y
Created in: 3dsmax 2012 x64
Compatibility: Unknown
Lighting Rigs: Let There Be Light (2012) by Simfox
File size (decompressed): 84.5 MB in 4 files
File Extension: ".max"
Permission to re-upload: Y (but with credit)
Author's note(s): I made this really quick during chat on ST, so it wasn't as clean as I usually intend by buildings to be. In other words, don't mind the mess! haha

Ugh...this is so beautiful.  Such an ultra-modern skyscraper, like what you'd see popping up in NYC, SF (Transbay Development), Vancouver/Toronto, etc right now.  I personally think it is beautiful...somebody please finish it!!

If no one else steps up to the plate, I wouldn't mind doing so. :) Mind you, I'd go pretty heavy on the artistic license, but I think we'd all like to see something as wonderful as this finished sooner than later.

By all means go heavy on the artistic license. I have something to help you with that

 

For anyone else that wants that help, here is a neat maxscript i found, Its Here Im going to try a experiment with it down the road, and this building would be perfect for said expriment. 

 

(Ill use another one though cause this post kind of gives this building to Bipin)

It's sad that as of March 2015 this building hasn't seen the light of gameplay. Something so cool as this should be gracing our game screens. Please someone ressurect this !

      Hi Simtropolians,
       
      I'm building my home town, Berlin, with the help of your many mods and assets (I am using 70+ mods and 600+ assets). I started playing Cities:Skylines about 2 months ago and I'm enthused by the activity happening here and in the Steam Workshop. Thank you guys! 
       
      I'm endeavoring to add some of my own custom assets to the Workshop, but I'm new to the entire process. I'm good at photoshop, but I suck at Blender! I booted blender for the first time last week, so I'm at the rough end of a steep learning curve. You guys have been very helpful to get me over a few stumbling points. Now I'm getting ready to publish a couple of items and I'd like to run them by you first. I'm trying to start simple, but even simple objectives seem to morph into week-long efforts. Please let me know how my work can be improved.
       
      I've got a Checkpoint Charlie cooking (check my screenshot stream on steam or on twitter, if you're interested), but let's start with the Rosinenbomber from the Deutsches Technikmuseum:

       
      I found a DC-3 model by Giovanni E and lifted it to the top of the stock library with some prop anarchy:

      I was happy to find a DC-3, but the model has some texture problems (the illumination map is always fully on) because it's an old model and was probably made before After Dark. In wanting to fix the lighting problem, I wound up re-texturing the entire model to specifically be the famous Berlin C-47 "Rosinenbomber," as well as adding some propellers.

      It's starting to look decent in-game, but I still have some shadowing issues that I'm working on around the windows.

      I'd like to improve the body texture so that it looks more silvery and less white in the sun (I'm using PhotoReal3 LUT and Daylight Classic mods).

      Here are my current diffuse and spec maps:

       
      How would I go about improving the look of the body surface? I'd like it to be more shiny and silvery.
       
      My next question is, what is a good approach to make the LOD model?
       
      Thx for looking & thx in advance for your suggestions.

      I am currently living in Taipei, Taiwan.
      I was driving around yesterday thinking about this place doesn't look like anyplace else ... meaning even in a flexible game it might not be easy to capture the feel of Taipei:
      (1)  The lanes don't line up across intersections (and some cases the streets as well).
      (2)  I learn from SC4 and CS that roundabouts (not common in the USA) are to keep traffic moving.  There are many in Taiwan except that they all have traffic lights which seems to defeat the whole purpose.
      (3a)  Multizoning.  Like LD/MD residential with LD shops on 1F and 2F.
      (3b)  Multizoning.  Little farm patches simply stuck here and there.  (I suppose a ploppable vegetable path would cover this.)
      (3c)  Multizoning (underground).  Huge underground shopping complexes at major subway junctions.
      (4)  Roads within city limits which wind up mountains with slope and turn sharpness hard to reproduce in a game.
      (5)  Motorcycles everwhere (yes, on side walks)
      (6)  Tons of two way short residential blocks not wide enough for two ways; not gridded; often deadend
      (7)  Large amount of vacant real estate not abandoned (Chinese invest in real estate like in The West people invest in financial markets)

      Thank you for choosing Bipin's Industry Essentials pack! This download comes packed with four growable and ploppable warehouse and factory outbuildings, three smokestacks, a massive cooling tower, two utility buildings; one for power and one for water, as well as the essential transit-enabled lots for an HD, grungy road that may be plopped over the standard Maxis ones to give some old-time appeal! Furthermore, some filler items and extra props for the lotters out there are included.
       
      This is my largest upload to date. Don't forget to check out the pictures to see what's in store. You can expect to see "Vol. 2 - The Rust Belt" soon. Also be sure to check out my thread to see what's coming up after this:

      Psst... I hope you enjoy this little Festivus/Christmas present Simtropolis. I've been pretty ill recently, but I wasn't going to let that stop me from giving all you deserving members out there a gift!

    • I haven't compared this to the real-life version, so I cannot comment on how faitffully you recreated it, but since I have no particular connection to that building anyway, this aspect doesn't matter to me personally. What matters more to me is that this looks like a great BAT of a tower that is both rather generic and can pop up two or three times in a big city's skyline without standing out too obviously (provided you have enough other skyscrapers, with some iconic buildings to draw most of the attention) and also pretty interesting once you zoom in and take a closer look. That base makes it more than just your average black/brown/beige/grey box with window strips. As such, it can also look great when placed in a mid-rise environment. Thank you very, very much for keeping the lot editable, too! This offers great opportunities for adaptation to different playing styles and preferences. A day with a Diego Del Llano upload is always a good day in STEX terms.
    • Boom! Another great HT here! Hope Mr Tsvirkunov will open a new factory soon in my cities! Thanks for sharing your stuff!
    • Nice idea. Should anyone have preferences or favourite buildings they recall, it would certainly help narrow down the total. Especially with the filter list on the Wayback, the accompanying preview images are there at least to give some visual indication for anyone searching. If there really are 10,000 buildings, I suppose it's not even worth uploading 10% of them given the likely inconsistencies with quality.
    • It may be worth setting up some kind of "I would like ..." topic .... people can go thru the old exchange and point out to Cori the ones that should be retrieved ... it should end up a more manageable list
    • That could be arranged. But since these are legacy files, I don't think it matters too much either way since credit would be given. If Cori would like to continue uploading these (as intended following Dirk's approval), it may be nice for her to receive the occasional Rep as a by-product reward for retrieving, packaging and uploading them here. With hundreds if not thousands of them, it'd require a mammoth effort after all. (Should the quality of content resemble anything to the old SC4 EA exchange, I'm guessing it's not worth restoring all of them.)
