As I am now a member of the NYBT this will from now on be were I show any New York related BATs and creations. First one you might have seen in my BAT thread in the open discussions room:

Day render

Maxis Nite render

Darknite render

Some modding and proper lotting is what still needs to be done on this one before release.

A new project I have started, are there anyone who can see what it is yet? This is very early in its stages and is little more than a volume study.

I'm glad you have moved your work shop here, you will be making history for NYBT yet the whole of Sim city 4. :D

I'm going to Sgt Pepper to put your name in the NYBT list. :D

Welcome to the NYBT! I can see your releases will be highly anticipated!

Great Job on corner building. IMHO it looks great.

Can't wait to see your progress on the Hotel Plaza.

EDIT: are you gonna include the Hearst Tower here as well?

I'm not doing much of a good job being around lately and this summer after vacation I'm hoping to change that. :)

I'm glad NYBT could have you on without relying on me for some sort of confirmation. I'm sure you know we are a pretty layed back and an easy going group. Welcome to the team! ;)

These projects are very, very promising. I think this new one...is it the Plaza Hotel? It's mesh reminds me of it and also it reminds me of the Dakota Apartments near Central Park for some reason.

I wish you good luck!

Wonderful work and welcome to the team.

That shop looks great, very nice textures. Can't wait for the Plaza Hotel also, looks like it's shaping up to be a STEX hit.

Thanks all for the warm welcomings. It seems like people here know their NYC landmarks, well no surprise there. I will bring over all relevant BATs here from my other thread when I have progress on them to show. The Plaza Hotel is very ornate and there are many details to model, so it's progressing quite slow.

Vlasky: Those pictures helps a lot, good contrast to show all ornaments, thank you! (Nothing worong with the links, that site just don't like direct linking, but opening them without the referal it works)

Aaron Graham, Vlasky, Seraf and OnlyMillion, thank you for your kind words.

Glad to see you're still around. The modeling on The Aurora looks good so far.

Is the brown concrete texture final? If so, looking at the pics of the building I think it would need desaturating quite a bit...nice modelling though, really like the look of this and will fit the game quite nicely, good work!

Hehehehe, well what a nice thing to see! :) Let's just hope more time is on your way my friend! :) You have chosen one of the very common type of residential high-rises in Manhattan, and although not many would enjoy modeling them, those really will be very helpful for achieving that Manhattan feeling in cities :)

The palette might need to be lightened slightly, it seems very dark overall, which might make it stick out in game.

Otherwise, I think it is coming along rather nicely!

It looks like there's some tiling in the brick, but given the complexity of the façade it may not be an issue. I think it's coming along nicely.

Looking great, this is what the brick needs to aim for.

I also think think the window frames are a little to dark, add a little brightness or saturation to it. i also would like to see some detailing on the first floor like stores, sense the real thing as some, but I'm sure you have not went to that area yet. And do not for get about the balcony junk a few chairs here and there. :D Keep it up your doing a wonderful job.
