Cityscape 1.8 Demo

Just a quick update about something I ran across which my readers might be interested in, Cityscape.

Cityscape is a next gen urban simulation engine which is (almost) everything many SimCity fans have been looking for. Take a look:

A demo of Cityscape is available and has a familiar feel to the SimCity series. With a UI menu, some AI, night lighting, custom content creator and city management tool it could be the next sim game.

Recreating New York in Cityscape would be amazing.

More next time. You can download the demo of Cityscape at PixeActive3d.com

Google Earth New York- Flatiron Building

Now that Google Earth has fully 3D cities and the project of making a 3D model of Manhattan in Google Earth is complete I thought I'd show the best images from "Google Manhattan."

Greenwich Village and surrounding neighborhoods

The Flatiron Building
The Upper East Side

Times Square


Looking uptown from the Financial District

Now that Google Manhattan is complete maybe I'll start on Google Brooklyn... we'll see how time permits.

If you haven't already download the latest version of Google Earth. It's a must have application for an urban simulation/mapping fan.

More next time.
