Core Editor

  • Core Objects > Materials > Building
    There are several materials that make creating skyscrapers and other modern buildings very simple. Be sure to experiment with the various material properties to customize the look.

  • Each building should be in a separate group so that other creators can easily drag individual buildings around.

  • Performance is very important for such projects. Be careful about the object count, and use Merged Models if necessary.

Requirements

  • Design a city of your own design.

  • This project should be submitted as a complete scene in which all the elements are visible and arranged in a sample city.
