Future Cities and buildings

Just in some far future years the buildings would reach up to 2 km. and cities would be populous.

Exciting. Do you have any pics of how they may look?
Sometimes I make my own. Here's one I'm making in SketchUp right now. It is only 160m tall though. :)

Again, i'm quoting Infinity the quest for Earth

Here there is a thread of 79 pages (more than 1500 replies ;D) about buildings in the game...

Bla,i think that if you scale it on the z axis (maybe +80%) it could look very nice and tall.

I read in National Geographic about a plan to build a tower that turns with solar panels and wind mechanisms. Maybe I can get a picture.

I have sketch up, i made a dolphin track, you fill it with water and dolphins race in a stadium.
I don't know how to put a picture.

Thanks, but that's too late now. Then the windows will be stretched out along with many other things, and then it wouldn't look good. :)
Then I'd need to remove the windows and start all over again with what is on the picture. :)
But I think it's also best to start out with something that isn't too big. 160m is enough for me in the start. :)

There aren't enough resources for most of that stuff. If there is no money, how will we get people to build the robots?

X-Seed 4000 is so big that it would be constructed by robots.
