Product Information

  • Required Products: None

A huge set of 36 assorted skyscrapers and towers which can be used individually, as a group or in combination with my best selling Night&Day City set. They are wonderful for panoramic scenes, establishing shots, detailed backgrounds and flyovers.

The individual buildings are built in a modular way, so they can be used as they are, or you can easily adjust the height and position of each component part to give a huge variety of impressive buildings to populate your scenes. The designs are inspired by a number of iconic buildings from across the world. The buildings have been built primarily for medium to long distance use, but particular care has been paid to the roof lines and ground level, including shops with a real 3D effect rather than just being mapped onto a plane and so can be used for closer shots as well.

In addition to the individual buildings, I have included a complete scene with each building positioned on a 6×6 city block pattern to create a complete “Central Business District”, including lo-res people and vehicles to give a populated appearance. The lo-res additions require the Instance Replicator plugin available free from Sparrowhawke3D. A number of preset camera positions are also included to get you started.

All of this is presented in both day and night versions with the night version featuring lit windows, illuminated shops, lights on cars and even aircraft warning lights on the tall buildings.

If you already own Night&Day City, you can drop these buildings into the replicator for that set and create city scenes with any number of “hero” buildings. Not happy with the arrangement of buildings? Simply press “Shuffle” in the replicator to generate a completely new city!

Additional Details

  • When using the full scenes, it is best to use the Bounding Box mode in the viewport to set up your camera position, then check the view with one of the solid modes – particularly to ensure that your camera is not placed behind a wall!
  • As the full scenes include a number of replicators, expect that there will be a short pause when you select render before the render window appears as it is calculating and filling the grids with replicated objects.
  • Buildings can be customized by raising and lowering or moving individual sections of the buildings, which is why parts of the buildings are below ground, allowing you greater scope to increase the heights.
