Nova York in Progress III



Here's another test rendering that shows just the detailed blocks I've done to date. There are forty blocks here - though being wedge shaped, they're not all the same size - and offhand I haven't even counted the total number of blocks in the city. But anyhow this is four out of the 28 sections I've split the city into, as I described in the earlier previews.

I'm glad to say that I'm nearing a point where I can cheat much more. This much has taken quite awhile. In my next step I'll take each of these four sections and copy them, then rotate the copies 180 degrees around their center; then I'll delete the most recognizable buildings and replace them with new ones. By recycling all the work I've done on the less detailed buildings I should be able to speed this next bit up quite a lot.

It'll get more difficult again when I do the center sections - those are much more likely to be visible at the same time, so I'll have to avoid anything that might look repetitive. Then there'll be another setup phase for the straight streets, but those blocks will eventually be the easiest of all since they're all the same size and shape, and so many of them will be clear across town from one another. I'll be a copying and pasting fiend when I get out there. I look forward to that!
