I'm new to the world of Cities: Skylines. My brother told me about it on Christmas... I bought it the next day and now I'm making "stuff"! I'm going back to school for Mechanical Design (after 15 years as a footwear designer, drawing everything "by hand"), learning Solidworks, Creo and AutoCAD in school, and teaching myself 3D Max and Blender. This is a great outlet to practice everything with a purpose, rather than randomly building things.
I'm really into 1950s & 60s kitschy Mid-Century Americana. So thats pretty much the style all my assets will be... bright colors and funky shapes... the cheesier the better! I'm going to use this post to share my creations. I'm still figuring out some of the back end info for creating assets... but eventually I'll start posting to the Steam Workshop.
First up... a couple props! I love big, obnoxious signs! Expect a lot of those... Lol!
Finally got a computer that can run skylines without it looking like a slideshow. Decided to fire up the old Blender and give a go at making assets.
This is Suburban Station from Philadelphia. (the suburban trains terminated here, the station itself is certainly not suburban)
Six tracks, underground. Direct underground pedestrian connections -- no more tedious under/overpasses.
Still needs a lot of work, might be able to release this week, though.
Questions for y'all:
a. How do I get trains to stop in the right place? Right now they stop halfway in the station, and not centered on the platform. The platforms are long enough, I think.
b. Is there a way to display transit lines underground? With 6 tracks to choose from it's really difficult to figure out where I'm putting lines. (I might reduce it to four tracks for ease of use if not.)
EDIT: for reference, ~5500 polys and currently a 1024 x 512 texture sheet which will probably increase to 1024 x 1024
Like most of you folks, I have a huge back-catalog in a spreadsheet somewhere of assets I plan on making some day.
Well, here's my list.. This is just the stuff I want to make, It's alright if there is already a good asset on the workshop for it, it's just for my own pleasure.
This isn't going to replace the refinery project, I'll still keep updating that thread. I just wanted to have a place to keep my other assets organized and seek advice from everyone.
I'll have to clean up the list at some point, but for now it's just a data dump. I have some more things I would like to make, but I don't have a design picked out yet, so I left them off for now.
