About This File

This is the high commercial version of My New Victory Theater

About the model
Probably the most famous theater of Broadway, the New Victory Theater is part of my 42nd street series. Has two optional props, the billboard and the chandeliers. Make sure to subscribe to them.

This model has about 1999 tris and a 2048x512 texture, with a diffuse, shadow, normal, illumination, color and specularmap.This model has a custom LoD, which is about 48 tris with a 256x256 texture, with a diffuse, color  and illumination map. 


About the building
Built by Oscar Hammerstein I in 1900 and designed by architect Albert Westover, the theater opened as the Theatre Republic on September 27, 1900, with Lionel Barrymore in James Herne's play Sag Harbor. It was the third theater built on West 42nd Street. Inside the theater, the elaborately decorated interior was crowned with a large dome that featured lyre-playing cherubs (or putti in Italian) perched on its rim. Amazingly, all of the original putti and one lyre still remain today.

Two years later the house was leased by David Belasco, who renamed it the Belasco Theatre and made major renovations to both the house and the stage. Belasco produced a series of plays at the theater starring Mrs. Leslie Carter, George Arliss, Mary Pickford, and Lillian Gish.

In 1910 the name became Republic Theatre when Belasco renamed his Stuyvesant Theatre on West 44th Street for himself. The Republic's most famous tenant during this time was the play Abie's Irish Rose, which ran for 2,327 performances between 1922 and 1927.

Billy Minsky converted the Republic into Broadway's first burlesque house in 1931, calling it Minsky's Burlesque. It remained as such until 1941. Minsky built a double runway down the middle of the auditorium for his strippers, the most famous of whom was Gypsy Rose Lee.

In 1942, it became a movie theater called The Victory, patriotically named in honor of the World War II conflict. In 1972, as the neighborhood gradually disintegrated, it became the first theater on 42nd Street to exhibit XXX pornographic films. In the early 1990s, the Victory returned to legitimate theater, using its stage space as a venue for offering plays by non-profit companies. It presented the En Garde Arts company's production of the play Crowbar in 1990 and in 1991 the Theater for a New Audience offered Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, followed by other productions.

In 1990, New York City, together with the State of New York, jointly took possession of the Victory. In 1992, it was one of seven 42nd Street theaters to fall under the auspices of The New 42nd Street, Inc., a non-profit corporation set up to oversee the redevelopment of these historic theaters and operate three projects: The New Victory Theater, The New 42nd Street Studios and The Duke on 42nd Street.

The Victory was the first theater to be restored in an effort to revitalize 42nd Street and Times Square, and between 1994 and 1995 it underwent an $11.4 million renovation headed by Hugh Hardy of the architectural firm of Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. The restoration included rebuilding the original exterior double staircase that had been removed in 1911 for the widening of West 42nd Street, and returning the rest of the theater to much the way it looked during the Belasco era.

On December 11, 1995, the refurbished theater, renamed The New Victory Theater, opened as New York's first theater for kids and families. Upon its reopening, it became once more the oldest operating theater in New York City.


Video game
The façade of The New Victory Theater is in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV. During the sequence in "Liberty City's" fictionalized 42nd Street/Times Square, the theater is featured. In the game, the theater is called the Liberteen and presents shows like Banging Trash Can Lids for an Hour. And now we get to enjoy it aswell in Cities: skylines. :)

      As I gazed at the peeks of MrMiyagi's Paradise Reef green mountains, I said to myself, it would be nice if we could have clouds that brushed against the mountains like we see in the Caribbean and many tropical locations where some clouds hang low. Or even look down through clouds at our cities and regions. Or how about taking a first person flight through them in a plane or helicopter. Then @RonyX69 provides us with a script for the rotor shader so we can have semi-transparency and eventually it hit me to try and make 3D cloud billboards just to see what would happen. I also took inspiration from the cloud billboards in Flight Simulator X.
      I have mixed feelings about the results so far and I'm not sure if this will go all the way to a workshop item. But I think it's worth a try.
      Starting the billboard method:
      First thing is to make a plane and map it with the desired cloud texture. Then it's important to duplicate the plane, flip it so the normals are facing opposite directions, offset it a bit so no z-fighting, and then mirror the UV in both X and Y (in Blender). At this point there is a lot more experimenting to do in order to get an good billboard orientation to see a seamless cloud when rotating the best we can so we don't see too many edges from the sides. I will be studying cloud billboard methods and share any interesting info I find. There are many possibilities with all kinds of cloud formations.
      How the game renders them...so far:
      The clouds do not have a smooth transition between the closeup intended look and the LODs. At LOD distance, they develop hard edges and lose the fluffiness.They also disappear off and on I think when in LOD transition. I don't know if this is a permanent limitation with the rotor shader or if we can overcome it. If not, the best this kind of asset can be is screenshot candy. Also it would be a good idea to make some kind of anchor like a rock so when you want to bulldoze the clouds, you know where the base is since it's high above.
      Current challenge: To make better cloud billboards and see if the LOD transition can be improved.
      Below are some screenshots of my experiment so far. I did the mesh as a quick test model so please excuse the shape.

       

       
      The rest are shots I took forcing good angles with the camera

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Next I will make better billboard formations. Maybe some can be simple flat meshes for shots right under or over them. All thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

      Hello everyone. This will be my custom content showcase and workshop thread. In all the years I been a member here, I never uploaded any content but enjoying great work by other members. I take this opportunity to say Thank You to all content makers for making our city building experience so enjoyable. I feel that making content is overdue for me and I want to give back to the community. I have some buildings and trees that I will be showing in upcoming updates to this thread. I will also be asking for advice and help.

      Information within may be incomplete or obsolete, and is kept here for legacy purposes.
       
      CITIES : SKYLINES ASSEMBLIES REFERENCE
      What is an assembly? In C#, the language Cities : Skylines is written in,
      " An assembly is a file that is automatically generated by the compiler upon successful compilation of every .NET application. It can be either a Dynamic Link Library or an executable file. " - From CodeGuru.com
      In this case, I'm talking about Dynamic Link Libraries, also known as DLL files. More specifically, I'm talking about the libraries of code the game uses.
      They can be found inside the game installation directory, usually in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines\Cities_Data\Managed".
      If you look in this folder, you'll find 18 files, only three (for now) of which we will be dealing with in this thread. They are:
      Assembly-CSharp.dll ColossalManaged.dll ICities.dll
      NOTICE:
      Publishing decompiled code is illegal and would get me in serious trouble, so I will be limited in what I can show you on here. In order to better understand this topic, you will need to examine these assemblies yourself. There is plenty of information on how to do this online. One good way is to get ILSpy.
      This topic will just be about what the classes, fields and methods are and do, and an attempt to bring light into the way the game works internally.
      I won't actually be showing you any of the actually code.
      Also, at some point this topic will get too large, so I will probably just move the entire thing to the official documentation site, if possible, and link to it from here.

    • Sloppy, but a nice shot of black humor. The plumbobs are excessive; of course, you probably didn't know what they were, seeing as you described them as 'flames,' but just a sprinkling of them on the corpses can make it look much better. Imagine being buried alive in that pile!
    •  Wish there weren't so many dependencies involved with this cool looking building. (I don't really understand the whole dependency thing, I don't trust them, especially when you have to download some of them from other websites, and there seems to be way too many of them, so I never downloaded anything that has to do with dependencies.)
    • @mattb325 had tracks bypassing it for freight. Once i cut the bypass and waited a few months people started using the station. Again awesome job. thank you I have a ton of your creations in my cities. 
    • @tommyc25: Depends on what Maxis blocker you use. Theoretically, if you use a blocker that keeps default Maxis industry from growing, you should get only downloaded lots to grow - IRM W2W or any other industrial BATs that you may have. For W2W residential, the easiest way is not to use a blocker, but to zone alternating 1x2 (or 1x3) strips of medium-density residential and high-density residential. This will get you a nice row of 1x2 (or 1x3) houses. Blocking all but W2W residential is possible, but you'll have to make such a blocker yourself, and it entails blocking pretty much anything that could grow on your zones dedicated for W2W - that can be a hell of a lot of work, depending on how much content you have downloaded.
    • @T Wrecks Is Maxis blockers compatible with this? What is your technique to get only W2W residential lots? Is there a way of blocking all but w2w residential lots?
