I think you can re-use buildings, because you have a few different types, the eye will easily be fooled.
OldDog - looking forward to it :]
helicase - true... and night renders, you can't even tell the difference at all. Makes me wonder why I put so much effort into it haha.
Got the crazy idea to make 3d tiles on the pillars. It's easy, but very time consuming. Luckily, the spacing tool saved me some time. Anywho, time to do the other side of the pillar. Currently at 70,800 polies. This project is gonna be well over 20 million polies haha. PROXIES FTW! And I used displacement on the tiles by adding a smoke map. Works great, I think I can do the same for the tiles where the cars are.
EDIT: moarrrr. Some vraydirtmap and added textures will do the trick.

Blahh, stresssss. I found out my bridge was too wide, which also helped me discover that everything else was scaled wrong as well. Almost done, I just need to reposition the cars and cameras. Other than that, I finished tiling the pillars.
I have to say this project is just amazing. And I'm sorry about the why it started in the first place, but i guess this kind of work shows the dedication to the project and what it represents.
By the way in the PS13 studio render, is that hdri or physical lights?

3n1g - physical lights only
Redid this building again and felt that it should be a lot more accurate seeing how it's the closest building. Will be adding a lot more details soon.

Please stop taking pictures and posting them as render.
Just kidding. Looks amazing.
Not really a fan of the lamps material, that red doesn't really fit the scene i think...
Just my 2 cents.
i love your work adavn u should begin doing some dirt textures cause every thing look clean well done man
This will make an amazin piece for your portofolio
Make sure you show it to some companies.
3n1g - It's like that in real-life, but I could change it to a dark grey/black.
momaza - thanks, I've just started messing around with V-Ray dirt. I may do stuff with uv unwrapping as well.
4yBaK - Indeed. Just showing my love. I honestly underestimated the scale of this project haha. It was just going to be a shot of cars on a bridge passing by the Opera house and some skyscrapers.
Finished a few more buildings and started some new ones as you can see. I'll create one house and duplicate those since a lot of them are the same, so that should take up quite the space. 2 more structures to add to Luna Park which will also take up a good amount of space. Almost there, I'm excited to add the trees!
Been awhile, junior year is a lot of work as it turns out.
Some new buildings. I'm thinking another 6 buildings to give that sense of Sydney's compactness.
Dude, I feel ya on the workload of the junior year, but that you can still do this much is insane. I'm doing homework till I fall asleep every night! That you have the time to do such amazing work inspires me. :0
hi mate, not sure if you are interested, but i have a model of a building in sydney. Its the old state bank building on the corner of wentforth and oxford by hyde park. Its yours if you want it. Made it in c4d so let me know which format you want.
Today marks one year since Kevin Phan has passed away. I have a large 3000x1200 render of all progress so far.
