But the realism... It's like doing this in one of the 2D city games:
I know it's exaggerated, but consider it. What if we did the same, then all the buildings would look that way, and then the city would look normal again? With the difference that the roads would just be tiny ofc.

Wow, I'd like to see those shopping malls inside... Not that I like to shop or do it often, but they must contain loads of nice Technological devices. :)
Btw, just a notification, remember to expand your territory when you build. :)

Update.

Added a residential building. It's the tallest building possible.

Sorry for deleting the old skyscrabers placed beyond the city FGFG. I think they have been moved and been destroyed anyways, in one of the edits. But you can, ofc, go back and copy them from an earlier version if you need them.

Here it is my new update.
I'm starting to change the colour of the residential building because after some time it starts to get annoying to the eyes. Later on I will change all the green in my city.

Then we should select a completely new color for all residental buildings.
It's also easier to simply change it all by selecting a color and shift-clicking something, then it will change the color of all the planes with that color to the new color.
I don't know what the new color should be though. A darker green would make it look like the grass. There's purple... That one shouldn't annoy the eyes I guess.
I just can't imagine a city like this that doesn't use that green color for residental zones. :P
It's against the law of SimCity.

Edit: Update. The road problem has been fixed. My city has expanded, to gain land for agriculture. For mysterious reasons the demand on agriculture is extremely high in our city! I wonder why... :P

Probably my city demands it.

Edit: I think Gray is dull.

Edit: I added Green Residential buildings and that's about it.

What road problem?

The road problem in number 20. The road had no surface, so the background was visible where the roads were in your city and my city.
I will edit version 22 soon.

Edit: Update.

Edit: We will get a problem in the Future. The biggest size allowed in a post is 3.100 kB. Right now, our cities take up 1.236 kB.

Just little changes: my city is now fully gray, I added a new building and edited the 2 complexes near the red house. In the future I'm going to edit the first buildings I made, for a better look. After that I'll complete the empty blocks, and finally another render will arrive ;).

It's also easier to simply change it all by selecting a color and shift-clicking something, then it will change the color of all the planes with that color to the new color.

I don't think it is possible in schetch up.

It's against the law of SimCity.

We aren't playing SimCity :)

Gray is drab and boring. How about light green?

Can't we find a common color for zoned buildings?
What about purple? Or another color? You can suggest any color that is distinguishable from the rest. I just think the greyscale isn't so good because grey isn't a real color, but a mixture of all colors, and doesn't fit into the system when there is yellow, red, blue, orange etc.
Also, the surfaces the people walk on use the greyscale, the roads are almost black, while the pavements are grey.

I have no problem with that. But I think that has the same kind of brightness as the green we were using, and I guess it will annoy the eyes just as much.

It depends on what color FGFG wants it to have. I'm just hoping that we can have common colors for our zones, I think this game is on it's way a little too far into freedom. :P

Yes, that's teal/turquoise. I think it will give the same problem as the green we used before.

I changed all residential to a darker green. No more gray or green.
I added a convention at the end of my city, increases demand in commercial in all of your cities, to be advised.
FGFG, you can change the colors back if you ever need to.

I like the new green color, but isn't it too close to grass?
Notification to Deoxy99: I've built a new road to your city.

Here there is my city almost complete!
I'm going to add renders of the whole city soon, and of every district later!

Edit: I'm having problems with the render: I just added a simple (and fast) render of the whole city showing them: I don't know why almost all the buildings of Deoxy99, and some of mines are black.

If none of mine are, I think it's because of the faces. With the default color, you are able to see what face is facing the right way. The white face is what you're looking at, while the slightly blue face should be inside the 3D figure. To fix the problem, you have to use the reverse faces button when you right click a face.
It's a good idea to control from the start. I didn't until a few edits ago, where I edited my city.

If you want, I can reverse the faces for you.
