Title: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on January 31, 2007, 11:20:32 PM
Hello all. This is where I'll be showing my projects here at SCDevotion.

Today I've made up my mind and decided that I'll finally finish a project that's been on the pipelines for over 6 months: The Mexico City Cathedral. For now I'll show you a render made on November. I've advanced some more since then but there's still much work to do. Hopefully, I'll have it finished over this month.

I can see there's is a lot to be done yet, as it's only the front part. [linkie (http://community.iexplore.com/photos/journal_photos/Cathedral(3).jpg)]
But surely it's already a beauty :thumbsup:

Tankyou all! with luck, It'll be ready by next week.

@Rayden: I didn't just pull all these out of my sleeve on the weekend. As I said, the first pic I posted was it's state in November and I had been working on it since then. Just this time I decided to step on it and finish.

Post by: Rayden on February 06, 2007, 06:30:05 AM
Ok, I was getting worried with myself. I take an hour to make a cube with a few windows and a door with some textures. I guess I'm not that dumb :P
Congrats, your work is amazing. &apls

Post by: NikNik on February 06, 2007, 08:54:52 AM
This is increadible.
I never knew that this kind of quality was possible in this game.
The cathedral you amde is breathtaking gorgeous and astonishing real. A buidling with character indeed.

Definetelly worth every second of the 6 months spent on the project Debussyman!

Excellent!

Post by: M4346 on February 10, 2007, 04:47:00 AM
I saw that the Cathedral was released yesterday (9 February) on the STEX -> Click! (http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/index.cfm?id=17761)

I thought that I'd rather comment here and give you more personal feedback instead of engaging in the multitudes of "OMG 10/10!"

I think it is an amazing piece of art that was very successfully captured by you in the BAT, and that you did a great job at it! I truly love it and, at the lack of a better way of rating, I would also give you "full marks" for it.

Thank you for releasing this, for putting countless hours into finishing it and making it yet another masterpiece!

Thank you very much, and keep up the good work!

Regards,

Marius

PS. Will it be at the SC4D Lex anytime soon?
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: BarbyW on February 10, 2007, 05:02:10 AM
M4346  - maybe you should go and rate it as it appears to have been seriously downrated by someone. How this can be less than 100% is incredible and I am thankful that our LEX doesn't have those problems.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: M4346 on February 10, 2007, 05:07:59 AM
Will do Barby, and please call me M or Marius. :)

I cannot think that anyone would be that petty to downrate it, but hey, such is life and it is really sad to see such childishness.  /sad¬¬

Thanks Marius, all feedback means a Lot to me and I feel grateful. About the Lex, my intention was to upload it first here and to the STEX later, but I've had some problems since it is rejecting my zip file.

It's really no problem and the least that I, and others can do, for yet another amazing addition to the game.  &apls &apls

About the Lex, my intention was to upload it first here and to the STEX later, but I've had some problems since it is rejecting my zip file.

That's truly a pity, and I hope that it can be sorted out soon enough to avoid future nastiness.

I will never tell enough how impressed i am with your BATs and your impressive progress in BATing! This last BAT of yours is a jewel!! And i realy look forward for more buildings from you, especialy villas and administrative buildings.. If I dare suggest something:

Fortaleza-Secretariada Fazenda

This was my second choice for the SC Brasil competition but never managed to start it, and probably never will (i'm more concentrated to greek and french buildings nowdays).

Post by: CabraBuitre on February 18, 2007, 10:00:42 AM
I remember when you showed this off the first time when you were thinking about your Brazil competition buildings...  It's quite beautiful... I'm partial to blue anyway, and offhand, I can't think of TOO many blue buildings in SC4!
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on February 18, 2007, 10:08:53 AM
Thanks Swi!

Funny thing, yesterday I followed a link you posted to your image gallery, saw this picture an tought about making it. I remember seing it for the first time in the BAT Brasil competition, but then there was no way I could make something like that.

Oooh! Nice choice for a building.  :)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on February 19, 2007, 01:11:17 PM
Even though that building looked very interesting, I decided to leave it for later. Now I took a different direction from my usual and went for gothic Architecture. Here's a sneak peak of Vienna's Votivkirche:

Debussyman you NEVER cease to amaze me! I just LOVE cathedrals / churches and that looks amazing! :o :o

You are the God of detail! I sure hope that it will be out and about soon, I can't wait to get my hands on that. :P

LOL! Even though I've only seen that much of it, I am so excited about it already. You maintain a standard of excellence that is unmatched!  :thumbsup:

Wow! Can't wait to see this one on the LEX. Your creations are always top notch, and this one will greatly add to the diversity of available Cathedrals. (I secretly hope that you or someone else will eventually tackle the Stephansdom, Chartres or Notre Dame.) Uhhh, maybe that's not so secret anymore....

We really need a 'faint' smiley. I can't imagine how much time it must have taken to get that right.

Interesting choice of roof texture though. Is that permanent, is it on an actual church like this? I've never quite seen anything like that.

This is going to be one great BAT. This is Vienna's most beautifull Gothic Church in my humble opinion. And often forgotten because mos't tourista come to see the Vienna of Mozart, or Strauss, or that of Maria theresia or even that of Sisi. Not that I don't like that, but there is so much more

I'm happy to folow the proceedings of this bat.

Speaking of which, probably time for some folder maintenance.

wonderfull,

I think I'm going to concur with the Notre Dame, (was there 3 weeks ago...sigh)
If not, my first guess is that it almost has to be french and not German or English gothic.

If I find some time I'll rummage through my books on Gothic architecture. There must lie the answer. although I'm pretty sure that HabLeUrG and I have guessed it right ;D  then again, maybo not. :(

Bravo Debussyman &apls, &hlp, :D, ;D, ()stsfd(), ::), $%Grinno$%, :P, :thumbsup:, :), :o, here a nice diploma for you "$Deal"$. That's it for the icons.

BTW, a little change in the first portal on the right is needed. This doors as been built to small on the real one so the middle-age architects decided to add a triangular shape above to make it look taller. I don't see this shape above the first right entrance. Hope it is not to hard to change (if it is, forget my sentence).
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on May 17, 2007, 10:43:13 PM
You are right un_ame. But I remember the triangle was on the left one ???

Anyways, it was indeed made to give it a more symmetric effect because the size of the portal was smaller than the ther two (in fact, the entire church is asymetric because the right tower is narrower than the left one). But, as I just copied both towers (waay easier than modelling each one) this issue is corrected. Maybe when I have the whole front complete I'll see if it is convenient to add it or not.

And thanks everyone else for your comments &hlp

Hi DebussyMan - hope you don't mind my posting this here. I noticed the Vienna Votivkirche building model doesn't show in zoom 5 (the farthest) or in the region view - shows up as a blank lot. Doesn't matter much - this is still one of the most detailed and beatiful BATs out there - but I just thought you'd want to know...
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

Hi DebussyMan - hope you don't mind my posting this here. I noticed the Vienna Votivkirche building model doesn't show in zoom 5 (the farthest) or in the region view - shows up as a blank lot.

That's zoom 1 (zoom 5 is the closest ;) ). Unfortunately, DebussyMan ran into some rendering problems, so the BSC had to piece the model together manually from some test renderings (which was a real pain, as you can imagine). The nightlighting has been created manually with Photoshop, too. The zoom 1 images were lost, though, so the church couldn't be recreated for that zoom level.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: FromTheAshes on May 28, 2007, 03:03:51 PM
Andreas: Actually it's not unusual to have these render-problems in zoom stage 5. I've got the same problem with many downloads. For example nearly EVERY mediterrean building mbear did shows this mistake. While playing I've no problem with it, but when I want to take a closer picture it's very annoying.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

LOL - As I said, not a big deal. I never really use that zoom - just happened to place it in a new, nearly empty city and first noticed from the region view. Thanks for the clarification on the zoom thing too, Andreas. I can never keep that straight, which is why I specified in parentheses ::). Guess it makes sense - more zoomed-in, higher number... ;)

He does use MAX (3DS Max).


Great work, D.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: callagrafx on June 08, 2007, 11:26:30 AM
That's using the BAT4Max script and Max's internal render engine to get a more defined image...It's the best way of checking the textures under BAT lighting rather than Max's generic illumination.

Thankyou all!

@Sebes: Sadly, the interior won't show at all ()sad()

@FromTheAshes: the texture is a clean irregular stone texture with a brick bumpmap. Do you want just the stone one or both?

@Badsim: Chartres is definately in my to do list, but before it I have some other projects (including Burgos Cathedral).

Finally, here's an image of the completed nave. The last interior shot I'll make as I must start with the outside if I want to finish it anytime soon  ;D

Thanks for the textures! They look really interesting. But unfortunatly I don't know how to handle them. I put on the sandstone texture to a simply cube, choose "Bump" with an amount of 80 and entered the bump-image you attached. On the little preview inside the ME I can see the pattern, but on the cube it doesn't appear.

It's true that Chartres looks realy big (which one is the bigger, BTW? ()what()) and is untouched since it was build almost 900 years ago.

But, Nôtre-Dame de Paris (has it is in Paris and because of the Revolution, Napoleon and Victor Hugo) has an unmatched historical and romantical impact on the entire world spirit.

About Chartres: I do have it planned, but not sure when exactly will I start it.

Meanwhile, to rest a little from Notre-Dame (It does get tedious, specially with such big projects), I started another church, much more easier, it is Frauenkirche from Munich:
(http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/2838/munchenpc4.jpg)

And if you missed it, Thomaskirche in Leipzig, which is now aviable on the LEX

As I've actually seen the "Frauenkirche" in reallife yet, I must say, it's very good rebuilt! I'd love to see some stuff from Wolfsburg (my home city), too. But I guess it's to modern architecture, so it wouldn't fit into your collection. But if you want a contrast ;) I suggest you the following buildings:
VW Werk-Kraftwerk:
(http://www1.dasan.de/j//medien/bilder/autos/vwwerk9102.jpg) (btw, do you driva a beetle? If you do, its been built here in WOB ;))
The "Phaeno" science center:
(http://www.dailyshot.de/media/dailysht20060819.jpg) (Pretty trick I guess...)
If you're interested check out the following source: WOB-Citytour (http://www.wolfsburg-citytour.de).
Or something traditional? Heres the "Wolfsburg" (means wolves castle) which gives our city its name:

Hi Debussy Man:

I hope this is Ok to post here, if not please forgive me.

I downloaded the "Thomaskirche library" and one of the depencencies it asks for is "ghReversePathOverlaysPack1.dat"

I've looked on the BSC file exchange and also did some searches on STEX but I can't seem to locate this .dat file. Is it included in another file or some other lot that you have created? 

Will you point me in the right direction to find this dependency? 

It's probably as "plain as the nose on my face." but I can't see it.   :(

Thanks.

Keith

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on June 29, 2007, 11:35:17 PM
Not really sure, but I think it is a false dependancy from the SC4Tool as I can't find it in my plugins folder either. I'm almost positive it is included in the BSC Mega textures pack. Would have to ask someone more knowledgable about this.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: keithsed on June 29, 2007, 11:37:29 PM
I haven't installed it yet, so I don't know if I get a "brown box."

Yeah actually the whole factory is as big as a small city...That's why who ever wants to BAT this one, can only do the powerplant (the building shown with the 4 chimneys). I don't know how tall the chimnes are, but the are even taller than the highrises in the background.
BTW: There are 50.000 working in the factory. Does anyone need a building with 50.000 jobs in SC4? ;D

Hey, this may be a noobish question, but where can I find the reward requirements for the Vienna Votivkirche? The tooltip in the in-game menu for the church says that it requires the "CAL Willow Tree Cottage BSC", but I can't find it anywhere.

You can find Cal's Willow Tree Cottage here:

http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=734 (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=734)

It is also a reward which requires the CSX Mansion - Cromwell Estate, which you can find here:

http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=282 (http://http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=282)

The Cromwell Estate is ALSO a reward that will be offered once your city is 75 years old.

So it's a reward that requires a reward that requires a reward that requires yet another reward? Fun, fun. Must be hard to keep track of. :P

Or you could just cheat. :P

Looks awesome, by the way, debussyman! Shame some of the detail will be lost in game.

Your BAT looks very, very promising! I've been in Paris at the beginning of August - indeed it seems to be quite similar to the real Notre Dame ...  ;D

It's a pity that your "Votivkirche" suffered that accident with Zoom 1. I've visited the original some days ago.

Fantastic progress debussyman - as spa said you make these intricacies look effortless; to me it's amazing to see the massing of all of the columns around the window supports.

Antoine - by the looks of the gaps between the pillars on the first floor, I'd say debussyman is leaving space for the statues
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

Thank you all  ;D

Antoine: I didn't forget them, I'm just gonna place them, as well as the chimeras and most of the garygoles, at the end. If I put tem now, they'll just create unnecesary lag in the modelling.

Here's another update, started working on the nave exterior and the roof. The towers are still not finished.

Looking as beautiful as ever. 

Here's an idea to prevent lag...Use Xref scenes.  Model the gargoyles etc, but use the main model as an external reference. It also allows for ease of selection.  When they are done, simply remove the xreference and then reference the gargoyle model as an external file to the main (like a dependency  :D :D) It works a treat for large, complex models and helps keep the editing fluid.

Here's a new shot. Almost complete now. Just missing the statues and the roof details so I can work on the nightlighting (Sadly, I'll have to make a very simple one, 3 omnis tops. I wish I could make it like the real one, but my machine would crack open if I did) and export.

Debussyman, your cathedrale is just awsome. &apls.

You ask if something better should have been done. That's hard to answer because I'm unable to build anything You have both the skill and the tast.

But I agree with Antoine, until now, everything you have made on this BAT is perfect, so why stopping 1 meter before the finish line ? If you have the feeling that something else should be done on the nightlights (and if you PC let you do it), well, do it my friend !! Your choice will be mine :thumbsup:.

The only thing I can do is showing some nightlight picture of the RL Notre-Dame :

I redered it with the current night scheme (4 hours, not too much, but might be bordering memory runouts) so I've decided to stick with it.

The lot is 4x10, so you can place it in any setting you want. Plain landmark (as happened with the Mexico City Cathedral, I couldn't imagine what requirements would one need for such reward). And now aviable at the LEX.

I shall be placing this in the Atlantan Imperial Quarter, (under-construction as I type), it will look fantastic and will suit perfectly.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres?!  ???  :o Am I correct?! Do I get a prize?!  :D

God Debussyman, when will this stop? The Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres has been a personal favourite of mine since it was included in SC3K Unlimited and I have been waiting for it for SC4 ever since its release.

Will it come with the custom query sound that it had in SC3K?  $%Grinno$%

Oh I am so looking forward to this!!  :thumbsup:

a wonderfull progress on the cathedral Debussyman. I believe that the stonetexture is just right for the building. I would not change it into a darker or lighter version. this texture emphasises the sheer age of the reverend building. At least in my opinion ;D

I look forward to its progress.

Thanks all. The texture is indeed darker on purpose, so it doesn't look that "new", given that the renderer usually makes textures look brighter than they really are.

Here's another update. Slow but safe, the nave, we don't want it to happen like Beauvais. ;)

Hey , Debussyman , d'you think everybody is a cathedral expert ? Cathedral of Beauvais ... hmm ...

Never achieved . Two collapses , in 1284 & 1573 ... the highest Gothic core of the world ... 72,5 meters . I didn't have the occasion/chance to visit it ... maybe the most impressive considering that it would have been one of the most vaste building ( in terms of volume for a single room) of the world .

The place is saved in my MD for cathedral of Chartres ... but I have to admit that an unfinished cathedral would have a particular flavor ..... ::)

I don't dare to hope this is your next project .

Breathtaking work on Chartres' one ... as always .

Yeah!!Me too.... ;) I thinks la cathedrale de Chartres its more gorgeaous than Notre Dame de Paris, but its my opinion, because i think, Notre Dame, it's similar than other cathedrals like Amiens or Reims! ;)

Post by: Une_ame on November 03, 2007, 11:05:05 PM
"..I think the Notre Dame de Paris is overrated and over-publicised.."

Well %confuso, well, let me give you my opinion :
 - 1st/ Notre-Dame has a location. I mean, Chartres or the others cathedrals cities may be very nice but ND is in the heart of the "Ville Lumière", close to everything that counts (don't ask me to make a list).
 - 2nd/ Notre-Dame has an history. The History of western Europ since the middle-age and even before (since archeologists have found under the cathedral, the remains of a church that has been built around the yr 800 - Charlemagne - and even before some Romans ruins) , the 100 years war %BUd%, the Revolution, Napoléon, etc. I don't even wanna talk about Victor Hugo's novel.

Notre-Dame de Paris is not only a magnificent church, it's much more, it's a legend :wings:, it's the symbol of our civilisation.

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on November 04, 2007, 10:24:19 AM
Well, in my opinion, Notre-Dame de Chartres and Notre-Dame de Paris are hardly comparable. Notre Dame de Paris is mainly a romantic building, with lots of history and mystery to it, which makes it a very interesting site, plus it is a very beautyful and magnificent building. Notre Dame de Chartres on the other hand, is sooo medieval, undesacrated by the romance as ND de Paris was, makes it a magical and awe-ispiring building, with perfect proportions, that takes you directly to the middle ages and makes you humble before the presence of God.

Anywho... here's another update. Almost complete, just missing the absidal chapels, some changes to the north transept (the rose isn't yet ready, in pic it can't be seen) and some other minor details like the statues, etc...

Well, Chartres is (almost) complete. It is just missing a correct rendering of the night time (I keep getting errors ()sad() ). So it might be uploaded any time soon.

Meanwhile, here's another Cathedral for you to guess. Might not be as easy as the previous, since this time I'm starting by the choir. (hint: might be relased on Jan 6, in time for it's own festivity  ;) )

Doesn't matter really'.. anything you make is great.

One question: you resize your models in z-direction before rendering? I remember back in the days of the gmax BAT release by Maxis that someone mentioned his resizing to fix propotions in the game 3D-projection. I just can't remember by which ratio, so currently It's just trial and error until it looks good. Not that your BATs need it by the way... but if you do happen to resize I'd like to know by which amount..

Greetings,
Alex

Xannepan: As a matter of fact, I do not resize these models on the Z axis. However, I do resize other buildings, like W2W, to a 120%.

Ok, today I'm gonna make one last attempt to render it with nightlights. If I still get an error, I'm afraid I'll have to leave it withouth them. Here's a little pic of how it looks:

Have had to see it ingame first ... at any point of view a masterpiece . The innovative lighting remind me a lot the annual "Lights Festivity" at Lyon on December 07/08/09 ...

(http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/1/198038/lumi.jpg)

St Jean Cathedral aligned with Fourvières Basilica .
 
Cathedral of Cologne is something too ! I'm still using Bandito's one , something sentimental as it was among my first downloads ... but with your talent I don't doubt to replace it without sadness , maybe just nostalgia . ;)

Thank you . &apls

Thank you all.

Here's todays update. As you can see, I've taken a few licences on the roof, as I think the bright green of the R/L one would draw too much attention, I made it this way. Also, most of the pre 1945 pictures show that it might have had a roof simmilar to this. Would like to hear your opinions.

That's great debussy! Could you also see if some of the parts of the model could also fit as small w2ws? I found out that many of Kwakelaars mansions' wings like the servant wing guard house, and stables could work as w2w, maybe some of yours could also work?

Xannepan,

Well, in a way Debussyman kind of already made the Louvre. :)

The design and layout of the palace is according to my/our wishes but all the facades and corner pavillions are taken directly from the Louvre.

check this link. Listerlunde Palace part 3 (http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=978.msg67156#msg67156) on the previous and next page you can see more of his work.  :)

Strechnitz, what do you mean when you wrote "all the facades and corner pavillions are taken directly from the Louvre" ? Are you thinking about the new Debussyman creation or about the wonderfull palace of your city ? (maybe both).

BTW, I wish a Very Good and Happy New Year 2008 to everyone here with a lot of new wonderfull creation from Debussyman !!!!

Thank you all  ;D

Glenni: I'm planning to make some "satellite" buildings which might work for W2W as you mention.

Strech: Thank you very much for your offer, your abilities will come very handy at the time of the lotting  ;), right now I'm doing some research on the parterres, fountains etc. so with the help of dolphin66 who will be helping with the flora props, we could make the gardens as close to the real ones as possible. My intention is to make as much as I'm able of it within the boundaries of SC4 capabilities.

Xannepan: Thanks, as Strech already mentioned, I made many of the louvre pavilions and facades for his Listerlunde Palace. It would be just a matter of rearranging them and making the ones missing, perhaps someday I'll get myself to that...

Jayo: huh... the houses of parliament... I had tought about it before but still haven't made up my mind... perhaps some day... ::)

For now I'll leave you all with two pretty pictures:

Than you all.

Une_ame: I'm sorry, but I've been very busy lately and haven't had time to make any progress on Versailles  ()sad()

Adept2Rock: The Vienna Opera has been almost ready for quite some time, only missing the rear part. I'll try to finish it as soon as I find the time to do so.

On other news, I want to announce that the Votivkirche issue, in which it disappeared at the last zoom, has been kindly fixed by Chrisim, you can get the new version here: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=753here (http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=753)

Got some time today and continued a BAT I started a while ago. It is based on a now destroyed building in the corner of Friedrichstrasse with Leipziger strasse in Berlin. Still missing quite some detalis. Would love to hear your opinion on the textures, as the only material I have to work with are two Black and white pictures.

Anyway, one of the best BATters ever will surely find the best solution. ;)

Muy bello el edificio!, oye pero no te faltan detalles en las ventanas como los marcos y balcones? me parece ver balcones en la foto real si no estoy seguro.

Saludos  ;)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Heblem on March 16, 2008, 11:39:16 PM
Aquí si me permites usé tu render para especificarte si en verdad van o no balcones...

(http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/729/bacltk8.jpg)

Lo digo porque la proporción de las ventanas del 3er y 4to piso son algo grandes, para ser antiguas, generalmente tienen marcos mas anchos, y una base de madera que los soporta, aparte muchas sirven como accesos para los balcones.

Edito: no exactamente tiene que ser así, pero ya es a tu gusto, lo que sugerería son la falta de los balcones  ;D

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on March 16, 2008, 11:49:44 PM
Ah, si, te entiendo. Cuando empecé a hacerlo me ví en el dilema de si lleva o no balcones, pero analizando algunas otras fotos de mayor resolución y de otros angulos (de lo que se alcanza a ver pues no son mucho mejores que la que puse), al parecer esas franjas no son balcones sino parte del mismo marco de la ventana, así que decidí hacerlo como tal (aunque aún me siguen pareciendo ambiguos, tal vez sí los haya ()what() ) Además que los balcones sonaban lógicos desde un principio, pero tal vez porque estoy acostumbrado a los edificios residenciales que usan balcones en todas las ventanas y no como éste que es comercial. En fin, después de mucho darle vueltas, decidí no hacerlos.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on March 17, 2008, 11:26:17 PM
Thanks all.

N1_2888: Yes, they are finished, I would had liked to make them a little more interesting, but all the techniques I know for that are either for smaller windows or for bottom floors, otherwise they look cluttered, and due to the strange meshes the round corner left inside the building, I can't make the texture more transparent or it will look very ugly.

Heblem: Estuve investigando más a fondo y encontré una foto bastante buena (lástima que no la tuve desde un principio) en la que se puede apreciar que no son balcones, sino decoraciones de hierro en la parte inferior del marco de la ventana (los cuales yo hice de madera) además de unas lamparillas de las cuales no me había fijado, también me percaté de que las columnas de las fachadas laterales no son redondas sino rectangulares &mmm. Cabe recalcar también que la imagen que pongo es de cuando el edificio era nuevo (1890), como es natural, con el paso del tiempo se le fueron haciendo cambios. Además, mi intención no era copiar el edificio exactamente sino hacer uno "inspirado" en él (me encanta la palabra "inspirado" porque puede significar "copia casi idéntica" o "nada parecido al original"  $%Grinno$% ) De cualquier manera, he decidido dejarlo como está.

I thought I would post an image as a thanks to Debussyman for creating a building for me. Based on the Northern Ireland Assembly in Belfast (I'm using it as the Atlantan Imperial Senate).

My deepest thanks to you Debussyman, and indeed I do believe you have created the first ever building from the island of Ireland to grace SC4 :D

Lovely start on The Berliner Dom.   Way back when Maxis was explaining how to BAT, they were emphatic that work should never be textured until it was completely finished.   I'm so glad you weren't around then (or else didn't listen) as I love seeing textures right from the start.   :sunny:

As for your new building "the german one" again as i told you im impressed about the quality and all that details you put on it, somewhat that building its similar to some churches in Mexico  :D also can't wait for the new cathedral you're preparing (from the pictures I sent to you)  ;D I hope people don't read that last rumor  :)

Perhaps... but looking at what you're currently busy with and what you have bestowed upon us on the past, I realise that you have made it possible for me to experience so many buildings that I will probably not get to see anytime soon, and I love it!

It's great plopping these buildings and I sometimes just sit and stare at the scene, appreciating the immensity and beauty of your work!

Thank you very much, and please do keep up the good work!

Looking especially forward to the Berliner Dom and the Louvre!  :thumbsup:

Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been very busy lately and haven't found any time to finish my projects.

Today finally got a free afternoon and decided to start a project that's been in my mind for quite some time, The Reichstag at Berlin. Also, don't worry about the other projects, my vacation is about begin so I'll have plenty of time to finish those and even some more  $%Grinno$%

Here's what I've done today, still in a very early stage though.

Great and intriguing project... what dome would it be? I would personally go for the Foster's one - but that might be more challenging, though more (IMHO) interesting result.

May I ask, do you model the large blocks at the "podium" of the building? or is it sort of displacement?

Post by: DebussyMan on June 08, 2008, 08:51:54 PM
Thank you for the comments. :)

I don't have any updates for today, but I'll try to render a quick one tomorrow.

Given that erdmoebel has already made the modern version, I decided to go for the old one. I share Emperor Stormont's view as well, the original design was more impressive than the current one, though Norman did a great and very symbolic job with the joining the old and the new elements.

SimFox: thanks for your comment, the bricks of the podium were made with a bump map.

Wonderful to have you back Debussyman ;D

And a lovely new project. It is great to see that you'll be making the original building. The original dome was heralded as a masterpiece of engineering in the 1890's. mind you it was made of steel and glass and not of cast iron as many people tend to think.

Do you have sufficient material to work with Debussyman? I have a nice picture of the pre-war building if you like to have it. and also just as an extra, I can send you pictures of some of the designs that did not make it in the architecture contest for the reichstag in 1882. some designs are simply stunning! so please let me know :)

That is a very nice pic. the facade is coming along nicely :thumbsup: I'll send them to you soon, I don't have them on this computer.

Do you? ;D A photo that I've taken on May, 21st:
(http://www.ld-host.de/uploads/thumbnails/3a3b8c42150379c7d4256a0e62b9b906.JPG) (http://www.ld-host.de/uploads/images/3a3b8c42150379c7d4256a0e62b9b906.JPG)
(Click to enlarge.)

Debussy does not mean the actual reichstag in this comparison, but if he had to choose between the Wiener Rathaus and the reichstag design from sir John Gilbert Scot. And I agree with Debussy for choosing the Rathaus over Scots building  ;D  For I am very fond of Gothic, but Scots design is a little excessive, even for my taste :D  just see the pic below. ;)
(http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6913/georgegilbertscottreichop1.jpg)

My favorite design that did not make it in the 1872 architectural contest is the one from Ludwig Bohnstedt. see below. Although this pic does not do it fully justice I'm afraid.
(http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5647/reichstagbohnstedtxn9.jpg)

but as you all know Paul Wallot won the contest and his design was built... eventually. He had to make several changes in his design to please some fussy jurymembers. The design that won is the one below. which is quite different from what was built in the end in 1883.   can you spot the differences? ;D

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: N1_2888 on June 13, 2008, 04:04:34 PM
The jury voted against the first draft because it considered the building as too low. Maybe it also wanted more variety at the Ringstraße, which is dominated by similar-looking (i.e. Renaissance-styled) buildings (Opera, University, Museum of Art History, Museum of Natural History, ...) So Friedrich Schmidt's kind of worthy Gothic city hall was built ... (I would have preferred a more daring building. ::) )

As a fan of the old Berlin I am very happy that you've decided to model the old versions of the Berliner Dom and the Reichstag what they looked like before WW2.

If you need any help via real life pics I can help you since the back side of the Reichstag isn't really too famous.

Keep it up! : )

Looks great! The glass is a little on the plain side but the rest compensates for it quiet well. I really like the turret and corner entrance. The details on this are really well done.

Post by: DebussyMan on June 23, 2008, 09:22:04 PM
Jason: I've been playing around with mental ray rendering and ideed, they look much better than scanline, but personally, I don't think they fit in well with the rest of the buildings in-game, they stick out too much, specially if used in a W2W.

Spa: you're right about the windows, but I never seem to get them right, perhaps I'll rework the texture  &mmm

Heblem: ¿te refieres sólo al pórtico o a todo incluyendo la torreta? en cualquier caso, utilicé los planos originales de Grisebach para realizarlo, así que todo (debe) estar exactamente en su lugar. Tal vez parezca muy alejado por el ángulo en el que se ve en SC4.  ;)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Heblem on June 23, 2008, 09:31:15 PM
Solo el pórtico (no le encontraba el nombre  ;D) aunque tengas el plano recuerda que ciertamente las proporciones del SC4 son diferentes, a ciertos casos es de estimar para que quede lo mas real posible...  ;)

This truly must be the most luscious BAT thread in SimCitydom!  How many keyboards has it ruined with copious drool?

You are going to have the pair the Dom now with the Altes Museum, so we can all wall out our own Lustgartens.  We can only wistful imagine what old Berlin architecturally would look like today were it not for its turbulently melodramatic modern history, but your BATs are giving us a great taste.

it would go very well with my city palace ;)

Omigods!  Is it a photograph?...it must be a photograph!  The most stunningly modelled BAT photograph yet seen!

I'm so used to thinking of the Berliner Dom still showing postwar bomb damage and left trapped on the communist East side next to the ghastly Palast der Republik that it is still amazing to know it is now fully restored and reopened in a reunited Germany, its neighboring monstrosity is being replaced by a new Stadtschloss, and that a beautiful BAT is well on its way to gracing our undeserving simcities.

For Odainsaker, I understand that you may not like it, but the Palast der Republik was not a monstrosity at all. I like this kind of architecture, plus it was a very important cultural and meeting place for the est-berliners.

Thanks everyone.

@mmorales2: thanks a lot, I love seeing how people use my creations, and your setting looks stunning  :thumbsup:

@N1_2888: L'Hotel de Crillon and Versailles will hopefully be finished in the months to come, I just have to retrieve some lost textures; But I'm afraid the Cologne Cathedral will take a little longer, the more I research on it the more complicated to make it looks.

Meanwhile, here's another church in the making, try to guess which one is it now  ;)

Post by: DebussyMan on October 17, 2008, 03:21:48 PM
Hello all.

Thaks for your comments, and indeed, it is the Gedächtniskirche (Pre-War version).

Sadly, I haven't advanced on it yet, as I've been terribly bussy the last couple of weeks, maybe this weekend I'll  be able to do some work on it.

peterycristi: Gracias por tu comentario  ;D . Acerca del palacio de bellas artes, es cierto que lo tengo como un proyecto, pero no ha llegado a mucho más que eso porque me faltan imágenes de la parte posterior. Tal vez este diciembre me de una vuelta por el DF y pueda tomarlas para así comenzar con el modelado.

Serebii666: The Berliner dom has been on the LEX since Sept 25th and I also believe you even left a comment on it  ???


Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: serebii666 on October 18, 2008, 03:08:19 AM

Well, sorry for the lack of updates, but I've been very busy the last couple of months.

I know it's not much, but here's some progress on the Kaiser Memorial Church. I've been having some trouble finding good pictures of this one. Currently, I've got the choir and most of the east towers done.

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Fabian93 on December 20, 2008, 05:22:58 PM
It's offtopic,
but they really want to tear this historic church down?  :angrymore:
Why that? So many great buildings in Berlin torn down!  :thumbsdown:
They also want to tear down the "Deutschlandhalle", i know it was errected during a dark time of Germany, but it is a historic building, too.
At least they rebuild the Schloss, but it won't be the same..
Sorry for the offtopic.

Debussyman, your work is really admirable! I'm always looking forward to your next projects - really amazing.  &apls
Though, might I also ask what happened to the Reichstag with the old cupola?

aNdi: Many thanks for the pics, have been very very useful to me. And I'm also shocked they're planing to tear it down, can't imagine why would they do such thing to a monument as important as this.

Well, here's a little teaser. This is an old image, I'm actually already half way with the texturing. I hope to get this ready for christmas.

Tearing the Gedächtniskirche down? OMG, andi, where do you have this rumors from?  ??? The situation is the exact opposite! They're currently gathering money to renovate the scruffy ruins, if possible 2009 already.  ;)

But BTT.

I must say that each time you blow me away with your fabulous creations!
You just keep doing it again and again. And when you ever release Versailles, I expect some will crown you to god :p héhé xD

Also one question, I can remember that I heard somewhere you were batting the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken? Greenhouses of the Belgian Palace...?
Is that correct? :) Gareth (New Rhodesia) photoshopped one of them in his pictures some time ago, so it must be true :p Can I say that they already saw beautiful!

As for Brussels, maybe I have a nice challenge for you... :p Parc du Cinquantenaire (=Jubelpark) would certainly be one, don't you think? =)
Not a request, just a hint :D lol


Anyway, good work! Hope you'll create many many more ;)

wow, i just saw that church. its amazing! the detail is extraordinary and the textures look perfect!!

I hope you don't mind me asking, how did you manage to get such perfect looking textures on those round cone-shaped roofs? I tried to texture some cones recently and they were a mess. I was hoping there was some secret rather than just trial-and-error.

In any case, beautiful job! :D
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on March 01, 2009, 08:46:13 PM
Sorry for my late absence but RL has been a little hard this last months.

For those who have asked... Versailles and Crillon are on hold because of some missing textures I haven't located yet, hopefully I'll find them when I have the time to look in my old back up CD's. In any case, there's still a lot of work to be done on them.

@CarmineHilton: Yes, I've been making a little set of green houses inspired in Laeken as per Emperor Stormont's request. The structures are done, but the flora filling inside is what's holding me up from finishing it. About your suggestion, that's actually been in my mind, I took some pics of it in my trip last summer which might come helpful, but I wouldn't make the whole complex as it is quite large, I was thinking perhaps only an abridged version of the hemicycle with the arch.

Anyhow, here's a little project I managed to start this weekend, hope to finish it during the week as it is pretty simple. Let's see if you can guess...(Side view) ;D

No no, entonces está muy bien como lo tienes, solo que se me hace muy inclinado el techo de dos aguas, quizá el mismo techo con la misma textura pero menos inclinado, y por lo que veo tienes razón.

Edito: tal vez no tanto inclinado pero si está grande, no? siento que las propociones no encajan a menos que asi sea el de la vida real...

Fabulous! Wonderfully batted, yet again =p How big is it actually? 5x8 or something?

As for Parc du Cinquantenaire, it is indeed a huge building especially with the 2 hangars at the back. So an abridged version of the hemicycle with the arch would be lovely (if you would ever decide to BAT it).
>> Parc Overview (http://www.geog.ucsb.edu/~jeff/wallpaper2/belgium_brussels_capital_cinquantenaire_arch_90ac_jubilee_park_june2_2002_quickbirdwall.jpg), a wonderful overview of Brussels with the Parc du Cinquantenaire, I think that could help too ;)

>> Parc Overview (http://www.geog.ucsb.edu/~jeff/wallpaper2/belgium_brussels_capital_cinquantenaire_arch_90ac_jubilee_park_june2_2002_quickbirdwall.jpg), a wonderful overview of Brussels with the Parc du Cinquantenaire, I think that could help too ;)

Thanks a lot  ;D

Badsim: No problem at all, I love the hard work of MD'ers who are hugely responsible for keeping the game alive, and I'm always glad to help in any way possible.

CarmineHilton: 5x8 That's about right, but the final size will depend on the lot our friend Barbara comes up with  ;)

Une_ame: Cédric is speaking of the fountain at the square Jean XXIII, behind ND de Paris.

beutelschlurf: I do plan making other buildings around Bebelplatz, I'm currently preparing the Old Library.

Finally I have a request for any Parisien who would be kind enough to take a good pic of the side wall of the Hôtel de la Marine. I intend making it instead of the Crillon as it has well limited boundaries which would make it easier to place in-game.

Debussyman, I've you try this : http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/trouverlesprofessionnels/lienAnnonceur.do?nomAction=afficheBlocAnnonceur.do&typeAction=afficherBloc&actionAnnonceur=actionPhoto&crypt=CzxxLGosS6ahEHeColl9AwTq2vz4MO3n2OtKXIpCL4+khgYh2F48z9Q/IhHzg1eQASs6oEkxEV1Jc0cWepOtBQhtdTTHywjpbjkaMEyb4+qxqow40TNnqOH9QOcJBtLz&idContext=-957205865&portail=PJ

You should find the picture you're looking for there. The side of the Marine HQ (etat-major de la Marine), the other name of this awesome BAT, is on 2-4, rue Royale in Paris. If you want the other side, it's 1-3-5 rue Saint-Florentin.

If this is not enough and nobody send you anything, I plan to be in Paris in 1 or 2 months and will take some pics of the bat.

Hi Carlos , can't believe it !

Oppositely to what I said in my previous post  ::) , we have finally closer agenda(s) than I thought ! I'm currently working on Place de la Concorde ( with Vnaoned's wonderful props ) ... would like to know if you have already any idea about the sizes of this BAT to come .... it would be too stupid for me to miss that !

(http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/9278/hoteldelemarine.jpg)

Currently the free space for Hotel de la Marine is 4 tiles wide .... something tells me that's too short , isn't it ?

Thank you !

Cédric.

Here what I've done (a long time ago) using only LotEditor and Antoine obelisque, Swi21 bank building and of course, Porki's props.

(http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1309.0;attach=1863;image)

 :o That pic is awesome, Cédric! But I see it's missing the fountains, is Vnaoned planing on doing them?

About the Hôtels, I can't give you the exact size right now as I'll have to tweak that when I'm finished to see that it fits W2W on both sides, but I calculate it would be around 7 tiles wide. You might also wanna take in account the size of the Louvre, but I can't give you too much hopes of it  ;)

I think I noticed a detail about your work DebussyMan, aren't you a fan of pre-war Berlin? Even your personnal BATs come from this periode, isn't it?
And by the way I never thought to thank you for all these wonderful BATs you gave to all of us.

Sorry to have open a debate here , Carlos , but it's an interesting one .

So the question right now is : Are we reasonable people ... or not ?  :-\

My "Pace de la Concorde" currently is :

(http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/2299/021236426764.jpg)

That Lot - still under construction - is 10x14 tiles sized . To be accurate to the real one and to your BATs to come , I would have to enlarge it to 14x22 tiles ( real plaza is 210x360 meters ) . ::)
Even with the limit of 1256 items that I can save on it , I would have to split it in 2 Lots ... not a big deal . And , then ,the overlays set I'm currently using would not work anymore ... not an insurmountable issue either .

Now about Le Louvre .... Le Louvre - you could release  - and Tuileries' garden - I could release - would be an ensemble of 22x76 tiles ... quick estimate .

Well , Carlos , if you're unreasonable enough ... I could follow you on that one , no matter the time it would take .  ;D

(But , frankly , I hope you're not . $%Grinno$% )

Cédric .
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: N1_2888 on March 07, 2009, 07:50:48 AM
Maybe DebussyMan could make two versions of the Hôtel de la Marine, a bigger and a smaller one suitable for your lot. ;)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on March 07, 2009, 12:59:09 PM
Well, I'm affraid to admit I'm widely known for being unreasonable  ;D

In any case, the size of the Hôtels can't be reduced as they would look too small compared with porkies BATs as it is the general rule to oversize quite a lot W2W. In fact, As they are now (7 tiles wide) they look a bit small compared to them. However, I could cut them to make a small like N1_2888 suggested, to fit better with your lot.

BUT... as I like being unreasonable, I'd like to make a deal with you... If you make the correct size of the Concorde AND Tuilleries, I promise I'll finish Le Louvre... It's a pretty big project which I'm scared of even starting (I have made essays but never really started it), but that's the deal...  :-[

Ooops... Why did I say that... I must be crazy...

vnaoned: Thank you for your kind works, I'm also an andmirer of your work which I've been seeing at TSC... and yes, I like pre-war Berlin and most of my BATs do come from that time, guess it's because of the romance of a gone era, buried in the dust of man's hate, and also because as most of them don't exist no one will critisize me saying that they don't look like the RL ones $%Grinno$%

Omigosh, I was looking at Vienna's charming Musikverein, collecting images while thinking, "we really need a good German opera house BAT for those Strauss and Wagner romps," only to be awestruck by your beautiful Staatsoper on Unter den Linden.

Maybe the good modding folks here can somehow manage a custom sound file to go with the building query, a clip of the most famous notes from Die Fledermaus or Der fliegende Holländer, hehe.

Now to start bulldozing a spot for the Place de la Concorde as well.  Speaking of custom modding...maybe some seasonal guillotines for those revolutionary City Journals, hehe!  Opps, thinking out loud again...

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

Post by: N1_2888 on March 08, 2009, 12:14:55 AM
Hmm, BATting the Louvre will be difficult, not only because it is big (indeed, very big :D ), but also because it's slightly asymmetric (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:Plan_louvre1.svg) following the Seine's shape.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on March 08, 2009, 12:27:40 AM
That's where I'd take some artistic license and make it straight. If I made it in its original shape, it wouldn't fit sorrounding streets nor Xannepan's Rue de Rivoli BATs  ;)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Badsim on March 09, 2009, 05:06:42 AM
I'm sorry to have to say that , Carlos , but ....

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/1579/louvre01.jpg)


... you'd better start to BAT .  ;D

I convinced Vincent to BAT not only the fountains of Place de la Concorde but also to join that insane project ...
While you'll work on Hotel Crillon , Hotel de la Marine and the monster ( Le Louvre ) , he will release :

Le musée de L'Orangerie ...

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/9691/tuileries02.jpg)

La galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume ...

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/8229/tuileries01.jpg)

... and various others props for Tuileries's garden .

Vincent , whom is as crazy than us two , has even already planed several others things around ...  $%Grinno$%

Well , here is my proposal :

As the hardest part of that project will be released by Vincent & you , I suggest a separated thread ( Outside AntigOne or your BAT thread ) . Maybe - with the authorization from the STAFF - a thread in the Projects section ... where each of us three will show his progresses . It could be named "The Triumphal Way" as it is the well-known name of that Parisian perspective . About  4,5 Km (or 3 miles ) between the Arc of Triumph and Le Louvre ...

(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/9103/tuileries03.jpg)

Would like to see Barbara as moderator .

Have still some documentation works to do before to launch it officially , if you or Vincent agree , disagree with that proposal or have another one , just let me know . I've got an open-mind .  :thumbsup:



... I'm scared of even starting .



So do I ...   ()flower()

*Gulp* Seems like we are THAT crazy after all...

I'm really glad that Vincent (and David) are jumping aboard this boat (hope its "weight" doesn't make it sink  $%Grinno$% )

I think it is a good idea to make a special project thread as this is pretty big. I'll need some documentation as well, specially on some parts of Le Louvre of which I lack of good pics. Hope someone would be able to provide them... but I'm getting ahead of myself.

For the moment I won't be really aviable as I have to prepare a big exam for next week. But after the 17th I'll be able to start with it...

Good luck and may God help us  :-[

BTW: The Berliner Staatsoper Unter den Linden is aviable on the LEX
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Badsim on March 10, 2009, 03:24:26 AM
Alea jacta est , so . ::)

Vincent & David aren't only very talented but also very voluntary .  We can't fail ...

Arthur (Art128 ) is living in Paris and has already offered his help for pictures ... ( see thread "Batiments Français" in the french subforum here ) .


We don't intend to rush either . For the time being I'm still planing props with Vincent for Place de la Concorde , then I will draw that part of the Seine on a virgin large city tile , and the project will be officially launched ...

Thanks so much , and good luck for the big exam .  :)

you created your BAT fame by creathing worldly masterpieces and that often over shadows your talent for creating smaller-scale BATs, like those buildings from your private collection, they are awesome.

jeanmi:
Perhaps I could upload it in a future prop pack, but I can't publish it as a standalone lot because it doesn't fit the standard 16x16 rule.



Meanwhile, I've got a lot of free time due to the government measures while the pandemic alert, so I've started a project I wanted to make long ago. It's a church, I believe a pretty obvious one, but let's see if you can guess. Still in very early stages.

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on May 16, 2009, 06:25:50 PM
Thanks a lot for your comments!  :)

Arthur: Many thanks for your offer. If you get a chance, It'd be very helpful if you could get some shots from these facades which are very hard to find on the net:

(http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/8676/versaillesciel.gif)

Lars: The problem is not so much the cupula as the drum below it. I'm having a hard time calculating the proportions, angle and torsion of its elements. With a circular plan its a pretty simple formula, but with the elliptical one it gets a lot harder. Now I wish I had payed more attention to my analytic geometry classes  ::)

Toxicpiano: I had originally asked D66 to help me with them, but since she's not around I guess I'll have to take a try on them myself. My plan is to make the gardens only until L'Allée de l'Eté. But what worries me most is the orangerie, as it is carved below the ground level of the Château, so it will require a little more ingenuity.

Ouh, yes, analytic geometry... A bell is ringing somewhere  :D
Indeed ellipses and especially ellipsoids are tough bitches to calculate. I'm not that well versed calculating them, too (not at all to be honest)... Hm... Been trying to find out some specs, but I wasn't that succesfull. All I found out were two more or less exact angles. Dunno if it is of help for you, but still:

beutelschlurf:
Yep I did them, they are actually very simple models, but they work well in the SC4 level of detail.

serebii666: I have made a little progress on it, but it's precisely that cupola that is holding me back, a little more complicated than I tought.

Finally, here's the complete model with textures, I still have to work on the inner courtyard though:

The Germania building is now being loted and should be aviable soon.

io_bg: I exported it on SD and that's how it will be uploaded, but if anyone wants it (ar any of my BATs) HD, they can ask me personally and I'll try to render it that way.

joelyboy911: yep, the growable will be CO$$$

art128: don't worry, I just placed the base texture for measurment purposes, the exported version won't have it.  ;)

On other news, thanks to some great pics sent to me by Une_ame, I can continue working on the Crillon. However, the pics made me aware of many things I had done wrong in my first attempt, so I decided to sart it da capo. Here's what I've got so far:

(http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee249/Debussyman/CrillonI.gif?t=1248583198)

It won't be exactly like the Crillon, but more like an homogenous mix of both Crillon and H. de la Marine.

Second: I have just one question...
I'm 99% sure, that I once saw a picture of your own recreation of the historical  Mehringplatz (Belle Alliance Platz)... either I dreamed that or you really did. I can't remember where.
If you did, I have a question:
Did you ever release (or are you planning to release) these two buildings here? (i mean the two that look the same in the center)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Berlin_Belle_Alliance_Platz_um_1900.jpg (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Berlin_Belle_Alliance_Platz_um_1900.jpg)

iamgoingtoeatyou: Yep, I know the site, but the images of the Hotels are not really clear and the modifications over the years (specially on the Crillon) make it quite unpleasant looking, I'll probably have to make up a roof setting for it.

Fabian93: The buildings haven't been released and I doubt they will be as a standalone work. Perhaps, eventually, I can publish them in a prop pack among other berliner stuff I have.

moin DebussyMan,

nice choice!  ;D ... for the french chathedral (französischer Dom) on the other side of the place you can use the same frontbuilding and just add another chapel, but i guess you probably plan something like that ...

Hello Debussyman !

I think your project is the Elisabethkirche in Marburg (Germany). This XIIIth century church is one of the most representative building of the early gothic style in Germany.
nice project !  :thumbsup:

mmorales2: I'm sorry I forgot to answer to your post at the top of the page. I'm afraid Versailles is still giving me too much headache to continue, as I'm currently debating how to approach the posterior side of the wings which extends a few floors below the bottom of the garden facades, for this I'll have to conduct a few experiments to find the right solution, but I'd rather work on projets with a forseeable finish right now.

Thanks for all the comments.

For those who are asking, there are maaany buildings I'd like to make, but I don't have the time to work on all of them  :'(

Today I had they day off because of the independence celebrations, so I decided to take a quick building and started this Berlin Church, Emmauskirche, located in the district of Kreuzberg. This is a reconstruction of the original, currently only remains the tower with a modern church attached.

I'm really happy, that you are going on with Berlin, even if this is, well a prewar version, but not the original one ;). But i think to move it to the "Großer Stern" and changing the hight from 60 up to 67 m was the only good thing which was done for the creation of Hitler's "Germania".

Me quedo impresionado!

Thank you for your comment, Peter

Actually, this is a mix of Pre-Hitler and Post-Hitler version. It is 67m high (4 column sections) but the base is still the original smaller one.

The last time I went to Berlin, the Kronprinzenpalais was unfortunately hidden by a construction site ()sad().
Anyway, great work on the Siegessäule, too.

Keep up the fantastic work - will you do some more Bats from Unter den Linden, such as the Kommandantur or Neue Wache? That would be awesome &apls

I'm just returning home from my holidays and I wanted to show my progress on a building from Berlin I've been working on for a few months now. This one has been a little tricky because of its curvy shape... but after many hours of fiddleing around I think I've finally nailed the facade:

Hmmm... Versailles... still a long way to go, even longer than before. Last time I worked on it I decided to scrap the garden facades and start them from scratch. Haven't re-finished them yet  &mmm
The whole project probably won't see its end until I get a more powerful PC.

On the bright side here's the Chapel at la Sorbonne almost done, still missing some details like statues, windows and such.

Which concerns Versailles ... it's one famous project and one of the best building in France, maybe it would be the master piece of your carreer  ::) but personaly I prefer the "Louvre"  :P

No update this time, just some news.

Finally, after many years of long wait, Google has activated street view in for my city. I always promised myself that I'd retake my first BAT theme (recreation of my city) once I had access to it from google street view. Sadly now I have very little time to BAT, maybe if I work tad by tad I'll get a decent W2W set in a few months. But don't worry, I won't leave my other projects.

If anyone is interested in taking a virtual tour around it, feel free to come!

Hey DebussyMan.

Since ever I like Berlin and German buildings for Sim City. The quality of your BATs is really perfect. But one question: Are you planning to create the Towncastle of Berlin the "Berliner Stadtschloss"? That would be the most beautiful castle for Sim City 4. :D

(http://www.epochtimes.de/pics/2008/11/28/xxl/2008-11-28-xxl--20081127143247_DEU_Architektur_Humboldt_Forum_Berliner_Stadtschloss_FRA129.jpg)


PS: I saw that another user asked you for the old Reichstag. I have modded it in 3Ds Max but propbably its not created in you style. How is the current status of your old version? There is only the dome missing. But I am looking forward to rebuild a pre-war Berlin. ;)

Post by: peterycristi on May 20, 2010, 11:03:32 AM
Hi Mexabuild,

i don't think that carlos is doing the Stadtschloss, because Andreas was working on it, since a long time. I'm not exactelly sure about how much he allready did. But you are right, that would definatelly be one of the most beautifull and interesting buildings for SC4.

Girafe: No, in RL the building has in the rear a wall of modern design with large windows. As I couldn't find a good picture of the rear before the war, and as it will be covered by other buildings anyhow, I tought I'd just place a brick wall instead.

The Sainte Chapelle indeed … not the most famous momument of Paris , far to be the less interesting either :

« The Sainte-Chapelle ("Holy Chapel"), located within the Palais de Justice complex on the Ile de la Cité in the center of Paris, is a diminutive yet perfect example of Gothic architecture. It was erected by Louis IX, king of France, to house the Crown of Thorns and a fragment of the True Cross, precious relics of the Passion. Louis had purchased these in 1239 from the Byzantine emperor Baldwin II, for the exorbitant sum of 135,000 livres (the chapel "only" cost 40,000 livres to build). Two years later, more relics were brought from Byzantium.
While these were temporarily stored in the Saint-Nicolas chapel of the royal palace, Louis set about finding a more suitable space, and commissioned the Sainte-Chapelle to serve as a reliquary casket, albeit enlarged to an architectural scale. In the flamboyant thinking of the 13th century, the idea was to elevate the Kingdom of France to be the leader of Western Christianity.

The original plan of the chapel dates from 1241, and is generally attributed to Pierre de Montreuil, who had also rebuilt the apse of the Royal Abbey of Saint-Denis and completed the south façade of Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris. After breaking ground in January of 1246, the Sainte-Chapelle was rapidly constructed, and completed April 25, 1248. On the following day, the upper chapel — serving as both a royal chapel and the place where the relics were to be exhibited — was consecrated by the Pope's legate, Eudes of Châteauroux. The lower chapel — the palace's parish — was dedicated to the Virgin Mary by Pierre Berruyer, Archbishop of Bourges.

The structure is 36 m (118 ft) long, 17 m (56 ft) wide, and 42.5 m (139 ft) high. Fronted by a two-story porch, the Sainte-Chapelle has the emphatically vertical proportions of Gothic architecture, which had been perfected during the 12th century. The architectural model is that of a building with a single nave, culminating in a chevet with seven panels. Outside, the design concentrates on the essentials — a sober base and heavy buttresses contrasting with the soaring lightness of the upper parts. The slate roof is dominated by the spire made of cedar, 33 meters (108 ft) high, a masterpiece of finesse, made in the 19th century, but an exact replica of the 15th century spire.

(http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/1/198038/Saintechapelle02.jpg)

The upper  chapel is resplendent in its Gothic architecture — light, color, and space blend to inspire a sense of harmony between art and religious faith. Architects, sculptors and painters evidently took the greatest care with the interior of the upper chapel, as this was the part of the building reserved for the king, his close friends and family, as well as for displaying the religious relics.
Supported by slender piers, the vaulted ceiling seems to float above magnificent stained-glass windows. Most significant of the sculpted decorations in the upper chapel are the statues of the twelve apostles, which lean on the columns marking the bays. With their flowing dress, finely featured faces and hair in flattened curls, they impart a sense of serenity in all who contemplate them.
The holy relics purchased by Saint Louis were kept in a large, richly decorated reliquary, placed at the summit of the open tribune, at the back of the apse. They were exhibited to the faithful each year on Good Friday. In addition to the Crown of Thorns and a piece of the True Cross, the Sainte-Chapelle's collection of relics included a number of other key pieces mentioned in both Testaments of the Bible.

(http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/9/1/198038/Saintechapelle03.jpg)

The lower chapel is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, whose statue stands freely next to the central pier of the portal. Low vaulted ceilings rest on fine columns with crocketed capitals, linked by anchor braces made of wood or stone. The walls are decorated with trefoiled arcades and twelve medallions representing the Apostles.
French fleurs de lys on an azure background and towers of Castile alternate on the columns. The towers are an homage to Blanche of Castile, Saint Louis' mother. The vaulted ceiling is painted to resemble star-filled heavens, and the floor contains tombstones covering the sepulchres of treasurers and reverends of the Sainte-Chapelle. During the period of the monarchy, the lower chapel was reserved for palace staff.


Restoration :

Over the centuries, the Sainte-Chapelle suffered the vicissitudes of time, undergoing all manner of changes during the Ancien Régime. It was damaged by fire in 1630 and again in 1776. The stained glass windows in the Lower Chapel were removed following a flood when the Seine burst its banks in 1690.
Perceived as a symbol of both religion and royalty, the Sainte-Chapelle suffered considerable damage as a result of the French Revolution. Its furniture, stalls and choir wall disappeared; the organ built by François Henri Cliquot was transported to Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois; the spire was knocked down, the tympans damaged, and the holy relics were scattered. Most of the statues were saved by Alexandre Lenoir. Starting in 1837 under the auspices of Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, significant restoration work was undertaken by the architects Félix Duban, Jean Baptiste Lassus and Emile Boeswillwald, and by 1868 the Sainte-Chapelle was returned to its previous splendor. While some of the relics were never to be found again, others are today kept in the treasure of Notre-Dame Cathedral and at the National Library.
The building was classified as an Historic National Monument in 1862.

Stained Glass :

Sainte-Chapelle is renowned for its richly hued stained-glass windows, comprising 600 square meters (6,456 sq ft) in area. Two-thirds of the pieces are original works, representing the finest examples of 12th century craftsmanship. Reds and blues are the dominant colors, in contrast with the 15th century western rose window. In these panes the full biblical story of humanity is recounted, from the Creation to redemption through Christ; Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Judges, Isaiah, the Tree of Jesse, Saint John the Baptist, Daniel, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Tobias, Judith and Job, Esther, the Book of Kings, and the History of the Relics follow one to the next. Each window, divided into arches, reads from left to right and from top to bottom.
Following a period of disaffection for the Sainte-Chapelle in 1803, its stained-glass windows were stored in a two-meter space, in order to use the building as a repository for the state's archives. They were admirably restored in the 19th century, then carefully removed during World War II in anticipation of the German invasion of Paris. Following the war, every piece was meticulously replaced.
During the past half-century, the effects of air pollution on the stained glass have posed extraordinary challenges to conservationists. Operations to restore and protect the windows have recently been initiated, with support from the Ministry of Culture and the Gaz de France Foundation. »

… but I hope to see it in game earlier than that . ;)

I know it will be a modular BAT due to its size , like you did for Place des Vosges and the open arms of the main courtyard will symmetrical instead of asymmetrical . David is still waiting for the width of the main courtyard (so the width of Pavillon Sully ) to adapt his pyramid …

This BAT is going to be the masterpiece among your masterpieces … and finally , for me , quite easy Lot(s) ! $%Grinno$%

Hi Carlos ,  :)

The Reichstag is a magnificent building ( and BAT now  :o ) and I would use it with great pleasure  ( you know where  ;D ) , except that I don’t feel authorized to make such sacrilege !  $%Grinno$%

I know your taste for classical architecture ( pre-war notably ) , personally if it’s my favorite too , I’ve got a particular taste for « weddings » between this classical style & a touch of modernism , like a glassed-in  pyramid in the courtyard of Le Louvre ( what a scandal it has been  , I remember it !!!  ;D ) , a modern roof (& extension) for the Opera of Lyon , etc . This modern glassed-in dome on the Reichstag is another of these weddings  , ( really a perfect one for a forced one ! ) , something I wouldn’t want to miss , if I had a chance to visit Berlin . Well , all that to say I think you should accomplish a post-war version indeed ...

We need to reinstall a Kaiser just so he can properly award DebussyMan in nostalgic pomp the civil class of the Pour le Mérite, the Orden Pour le Mérite für Wissenschaften und Künste.

Hopefully, the ingame flammability stats will be calibrated so that radical fringe groups cannot ambitiously burn the place down in order to upend the fragile democracies of our cities.  Bonus points for the Soviet-inspired city journal who unfurls their red banner props from the Reichstag pediments first.  Very few buildings have such pivotal symbolic moments in world history...let alone get honored with the DebussyMan treatment!

To answer the question about the modern dome: I do not plan to make the modern version, however, I have sent the basic facades to Kelis as he intended to make it himself for his MD. That said, I don't know if he'll do it or if he'll release it eventually.

About the rendering of this huge Building I would suggest to split the Building up into two or more parts. Glitches could be the only problem but you could solve it the same way as explained here by jeronij -> http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=158.0 (http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=158.0)  ;)

First, you have completed a work of genius!  :thumbsup:
No words can't describe the quality of your work...  ()sad() But that's because I speak French and that English doesn't contain the words I would use.  :D

Seriously, if you use GMAX, split the building in multi parts for the rendering. But if you use 3dsmax, use a 64 bits version on a 64 bits OS.

Ah.. Those nice sc views :-) i know the problem. Personally I have learned to accept to only model the parts that can be seen in the game (which is hard to accept if you are a perfectionist by nature). But for me being less perfectionistic was to only way to finish something.
I see you are sticking to perfectionism ;-) ... as this looks GREAT!

I don't know the real building... Is there roof junk that you will add to the flat roofs?

my final question: would you be willing to share your wall textures?

Thx, alex

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on April 02, 2012, 11:41:21 PM
Thanks, Alex.

About the roof junk... I'm still thinking how I'll handle it. The building was restored in early 2000's leaving the roof with just tar and a couple of vents here and there, however, I have early XX century pictures where one can see the roof is flooded with skylights, so I'll probably go for that look to make it more interesting.

Regarding the wall texture, I'll send it to you first thing in the morning tomorrow...  ;)

Well... I'd could try, wouldn't be hard at all. However, the courtyard won't be completely hidden by the tower, but will partially block some of the details.

What happens is that I lost all my "packaging, testing and modding" software in my last PC breakdown, so I can't upload to the LEX until I get them all up and running; my free time right now is scarce so I'd rather spend it BATting instead of downloading, configuring and packing. I will eventually work on that and upload my works to the LEX.

Next I plan on working in more Berlin buildings, perhaps advance a little on the Louvre and another big model I got in the backburner.

I use chris' because simfox's doesn't support scanline.

The preview I published looks weird because I changed the background color and sharpened it in photoshop because I had to scale it.

Post by: gutterclub on April 10, 2012, 09:39:43 AM
I always find it strange that yourself, Xannepan and Peterchristi don't use Simfox's with Arch and Design MR materials which is designed to bring out more realism and crisper details..I would love to see how perfect and crisp those details would look alongside the BSP, HKBATs etc.

That said, I LOVE all your BATs and am definately not complaining :)

gutterclub: The problem with MR rendering is that the lighting is notably different from the scanline, so any BAT rendered that way sticks out too much, specially if it is W2W or something that usually goes around a W2W setting, i.e. most european old buildings  &mmm

kelis: you are right! it is the Westerkerk. I have also considered making the Nicholas Church, but it is hard to find pics of all angles because of it location.

Here's a little advance:

I understand your reasons my friend, it was more out of the interest in seeing what a MR version would look like..

new Amsterdam building is looking superb!
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Girafe on April 11, 2012, 02:44:17 AM
Indeed, Chris' BAT4MAX seems to be more appropriate to w2w buildings and I would say old building (and in this sense european churches, palaces...) typically the architecture you like to BAT.

However I would say, that for glass buildings, it's totally different moreover for skyscrapers. Simfox's BAT4MAX seems better.

What is funny is that BSC members prefer Chris' tool and simtrop members Simfox's one.

Anyway, this project is coming awesome  :)

Great job Carlos, looks so good !! Okay, I know, the Nicholas Church have a rare location, a bit strange for a cathedral or a Church with those dimensions, but in the real life this church looks so good in that location with all those buildings close of it... I have a lot of pics, different angles, different days, different distances, etc, So if you need I can send you all of them okay ?

What do you think about the Koninklijk Paleis ( Royal Palace ) or Oude Kerk ( Old Church ) ? I think you can do a great job with these models, specially with the royal palace  :thumbsup:

Well, once again, Thanks for this job Carlos, as always it is amazing !!
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on April 11, 2012, 02:18:04 PM
The pics from the Nicolaaskerk would be very useful, please send them  :)

About the Koninklijk Paleis: I also have considered making it (I even have some great architectural drawings); my main concern is that I have no idea about how the inner courtyards look (it is pixellated in bing maps), if I had a decent picture of them I might be able to BAT it. On the other hand, I really dread the Oude Kerk, it is so "organic" in its architectural evolution that making it would be a real challenge  ()sad(). However, it is one of my favourite sacral buildings; it and the Aachen cathedral are two of the buildings I'd love to make but have not the guts to try.

Post by: DebussyMan on June 03, 2012, 01:02:58 AM
Thank you all!... What an honor to be in the OSITM!  :satisfied:

Here's a little something I've been tickling on... my attempt to make a Bridge. (Hope it all goes well and it won't be as hard as it looks  :'( )

(http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee249/Debussyman/Ponte.jpg)

I do have a few questions.

1.- Must I have repeat pieces?
2.- Can the repeat pieces be limited to 1 repetition?... my intent is to divide the bridge in 3, but that woud mean the center pieces wuould be a piece of the arch so it won't look good if repeated.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: xannepan on June 03, 2012, 01:36:06 AM
The model looks fantastic (as usual ;-). Just some advice on the model: later you have to make tight fitting LODS, at least for the parts that have a chance to go under water level, i.e. everything below road surface level. You may have to compromise of the level of detail. In case you didn't know:  You also need to model the full bridge supports all the way downward, if not then the game's ugly standard support columns will show. (both issues depend on the actual height the bridge is build in game, ie height of the water shore)

Now to your questions:
1. In principle I'd say you can use invisible repeat pieces. However, in that case you might encounter some difficulties n the game (blank gaps) depending on if bridge length is an even or odd number. I do recommend to work with a repeat pieces. Looking at your model I think it shouldn't be to difficult to create a repeat piece from part of it.
2.I am not sure about this one... I know there is a lott you can do with RUL files, but that has always been an area I tried to avoid. NOt sure you need to deal with that issue. Again judging from your model I'd say it would be fairly easy to make the 3 bridge pieces from these. If I have some time later today I will draw the outlines of the 3 pieces in your picture.

BTW in my answer I am assuming you are not going to add more details to the model :)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on June 03, 2012, 01:40:22 AM
Thanks for your answer...

See... this is how I want to divide it:

(http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee249/Debussyman/bridgedivided.jpg)

If I make it smaller (the support with half the arch 16m) it will bee too small, and if I make it larger (32m) it will be too large  ()sad(). 


BTW in my answer I am assuming you are not going to add more details to the model :)

It's still missing the statues :
(http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2448/4089816258_1808ab0121.jpg)
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: xannepan on June 03, 2012, 02:02:13 AM
Ah i see... There will be some issues here related to your repeat piece.. Without rul files you cannot prevent that in the game you will have 2 repeat pieces between two center pieces or a center piece and an end piece. I used a trick here. You can have overhanging support and end pieces. So I'd recommend to 'extend' the center and end piece model by 8m such that when place nex to each other with one tile in between them, the arc is closed.

Next thing you would have to do is tweak your repeat pieces in such way that every curvature from the arc is gone... Basically only use straight (horizontal) lines here. The reason you need to do that is because there are two situations you will encounted in game:
1. One repeat piece between the end/center pieces (situation as in your picture)
2. Two (or more) repeat pieces between the end/center pieces.

Now here is the trick how you can deal with this: the length of the repeat piece will have to be exactly 16m, but you can make the width of the repeat piece model slighlty smaller then the width of the end and center piece.

That way in case of situation 1, the repeat piece will be covered by the overhanging parts end/ center pieces and the bridge arc will look perfect. In case of situation 2 the curvature will be lost off course (fundamental issue) but the repeat piece will nicely bridge the "gap" with only a minor glitch because you used a slightly smaller width.

I hope you understand what I mean... Difficult to explain in words.

you have to play a bit with the parameters in the supportinterval etc properties to avoid this :)

I have quicky photoshoped a picture with a suggestion for end, repeat and center(support) piece models :)

The red arrow indicate which part of the repeat piece should be modelled such that the overhanging parts of the end/support piece cover it

Congratulation on the OSITM!  &apls
i often lurked into Your thread before but as i´m no BATist, i only can say that i really like Your work. I don´t know how much of Your BATs lay in my current downloads folder, it´s filled alone with Your framework houses and a lot of churches. And i never played this game without minimum a good handful of them.  :)


BTW: i appreciate to give BATting and lotting threads a place in the OSITM. Both programs are essential parts of the game itself, so we were and are playing with the BAT and the LE. Customizing is what we do - we can´t live without. So to light up BAT- and lot-artists and their "studios" do only approach the game from a different but very interesting and important angle. Thanks for this.  :thumbsup:

Also, Warren mentioned (http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=14262.msg423141#msg423141) these terraces (http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/8378/dbterr.jpg) are yours.

Thanks to all!

Xannepan: now I see what you mean. I'll give it a try.

For now I'm playing with the values to get the bridge right. But I don't fully understand how it works. For example, when I increase the SupportInterval value it puts more supports pieces next to each other. If I lower down to 1 it still puts at least 2 support pieces together on certain lenghts, as well as a start piece and support piece together. What do I have to modify to get more repeat pieces next to each other?  ()what()
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on June 05, 2012, 02:24:04 PM
The texturing is done. Still have to make the start piece and figure out the values I have to modify to make it work.

(http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee249/Debussyman/Bridge.jpg)

One more question: ¿How do I make my own bridge? Right now I'm just using the tutorial file. I just have to change the ID to a new one or do I have to do something else? also, who do I contact to get my own ID range?
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: xannepan on June 05, 2012, 02:35:50 PM
For the IDs you may contact threestooges.

Also have a look at the bridge engineering department in the forums. Lot's of info and tutorials there about modding etc.

I,ll have to dive into how the different parameters actually worked... Forgot about the details :S

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase

Congratulations! Well done.

If I may give one more suggestion, you may want to extend the supports below the water level :-)

Question: did you render this is bat(gmax) or in 3ds max? I see some jagged edges (may be gmax or just jpeg compression, i can't tell). In any case, if you didn't know or do it already: you can use 3ds max for bridges. Just render the LODS in gmax with the correct TGI IDs and then select model name and render it in 3ds max as you would do with any other building.

How does it look if the bridge width is one more tile wider then in your image? Did you manage to have the repeat piece show up correcly?

The supports already extend 20m below the surface.  ;) Maybe the missing water effect makes it look as if it doesn't touch the water.

I used 3ds max, the jagged edges are from the game compression, not much I can do  ()sad()

As for the repeats, I followed your suggestion, couldn't get it to fit perfectly, but I think it looks good enough:

The bridge is now on the STEX. I have in mind several other bridges I'd like to make, but those will have to wait.

Right now I wish to finish my "Big 3" projects before the summer is over. That is: Escorial, Versailles and the Louvre.

Currently I've started with the facade of the Escorial. Minding that my thread is being featured I'll try to post my daily progress log here so everyone can see exacly how is my workflow and see how it progreses little by little.

June 18th:

-First floor of central facade almost done.

Hi Debussyman,

It's not only that I admire you and other BATters for being so exact and tedious in reproducing all the details in a historical building, it is more that I ask myself: how do you know how to do it? Did you make pictures of every detail in a building in order to make them in your modelling program? Do you use large images of the whole facade and do you copy the large elements and do you just guess or fantasize about the smaller details? And how do you know the sizes of all elements?
It would really interest me how you work and where you get the information of the real building.

Frank

Actually, I do all of that  ;D I usually have a large main picture that covers the entire building as reference (in the case of escorial I have plans), and then I also have detailed pictures of each element, which once modeled, I adjust to fit the main picture. If I don't have an image of the entire building, I model it by sections and then using cross-multiplication I adjust the proportions so everything fits with everything else. Here's a pic of my front Max view so you get in idea of the porocess:

(http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee249/Debussyman/screencapfront.gif)

@Giraffe: That doesn't count as Big project... but I'll be working on it here and there in between my main focus. Don't worry, it will be done  ;)

Any other questions of how I made a specific thing or process you'd like to know please feel free to ask.  :)

June 19th:
-Finished center front facade
-Started secondary front facade.

I can only imagine how useful the "array" tool must be in projects like this. The poly count is actually smaller than I thought given the relative scale and complexity of things so far.

Lovely work, your work is so great debussy!!

Well I have a little proposal to make, without compromise  If you want a new adventure after you finish your projects, you can bet this building: National Palace of Mafra, Portugal. The largest and most important baroque building in Portugal.

It's just a small suggestion! Continue the excellent work.

@Iskrem: THe louvre is on the to do list for this summer... so keep tuned  :)

Right now I got a little worn out with the Escorial... so I started a smaller project while I get inspired to continue.

Thanks, Flatron and Whatevermind.

Kelis: Your pictures are being of great help, thanks!

Now, I have a consultation to make. After so many days of seing pictures from all angles, I just realized the towers of the church are not in line, but one is further than the other to fit the diagonal street it is on. My question is... would you rather have the towers in-line or should I make it exactly as it is with one tower further than the other???

I agree, leave the towers out of line.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on July 11, 2012, 02:52:37 PM
The problem is that this is supposed to be a W2W building, making them out of line would mean it won't be possible to fit in that setting. I could also do both version, one of them overhanging to fit W2W diagonals.  :satisfied:
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Glazert on July 11, 2012, 02:58:42 PM
That looks more like a FAR (Fractionally Angled Road) than a 45 degree diagonal. Not that  this makes any real difference to the basic point.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: kelis on July 11, 2012, 06:56:15 PM
This church has a different location of the rest of the normal churches,  it is a w2w church and it is not normal for a church with those dimensions so I think the better is make two versions because I think a lot of people would like use the church in a normal location, I mean in a open place to recreate a normal place for a church like this !

I prefer the w2w version because I love the real location of this church between the canal and street  :)

Keep up the amazing work my friend !!

Hi Debussyman, I wanted to request the London Houses of Parliament. I know we already have Big Ben but on it's own, it looks, well, kind of plain. I'd love you to BAT Westminster Abbey and maybe Big Ben too. I actually came from SimPeg 4, but they sent me here.Sorry if this isn't the right place to post it.

Hi DebussyMan,

First of all let me thank you for all the great work you are doing here! I'm always looking forward to new amazing projects of yours.

Regarding the towers - I would agree with the opinion of having two versions to satisfy the majority of possible placements.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on July 12, 2012, 04:18:43 PM
@Glazert: True, it isn't at 45 degrees, but I don't think there are any W2W's on other angles  ()sad()

@kelis: Thanks, I'll obviously make a stardard W2W version to fit the current Amsterdam set...

@Hahey: The houses of parliament are already on the make by another BATer. Westminster is in my wish-list, hopefully I'll get to it some day.

@7otago1998: Thanks. I'll try my best to do both versions.

Setting aside the towers issue. Here's a little advance on the texturing:

Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: toxicpiano on July 20, 2012, 09:38:17 AM
You're right, it's a tough one! I would say either St James Garlickhythe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_James_Garlickhythe) or St Clement Danes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Clement_Danes_Church)

St. James is pretty stripped back and simple in style, whereas St. James is quite a bit more detailed and elaborate, I quite like the contrast there. :)

If I may piggyback on toxicpiano's request, I'd like to suggest making a new, properly-scaled version of Wren's most famous church - St. Paul's Cathedral. The existing NDEX BAT of it is tragically underscaled, and my attempts at rescaling it via SC4 Model Tweaker were unappealing. With your extraordinary skills at modeling classical architecture, I'm sure you'd more than do it justice. I'm in awe every time you upload another of your outstanding BATs!

@toxicpiano and WannGLondon: I'll take these into account. I also like St. Mary-le-Strand, even though it's not Wren's.

@woodb3kmaster: I certainly have tought of it, I even have gathered a few reference pictures and plans, but, as with other projects, it's the neverending song: I still have lots of unfinished projects I need to get over with before attempting new big projects.  ()sad()

@7otago1998: Haven't touched El Escorial since my last update. A couple of weeks ago I advanced a little on the Louvre... but still a lot to go.

Naturally, I also think roundabout buildings are needed, but it is really hard to find examples in real life of concave buildings of this style (XIX-XX century academic, central-europe-english-parisian, etc.) that fit in the SC4 avenue roundabout.

Excellent building and extremely useful  &apls  Besides being a much-needed fit for the avenue roundabouts, this is to my knowledge the first such building that will fit OWR roundabouts. It's also much higher quality than anything with a similar fit that I've seen. I can't think of more concave buildings off the top of my head, though I'll let you know if I do. What about convex-curved buildings that are overhanging so they can fit closely to the roundabout? I imagine there's more real life examples of that  :thumbsup:

As far as projects for in between go, what about a smaller scale, plastered baroque church from austria? Like for example Karmelitenkirche in Linz? I always found that there are not enough plastered and coloured churches for simcity. Most are Sandstone ore Brick, which is sad...

@Giraffe: That's next on my list ;)
@Flatron: Such builings have been on my mind for some time... however, I'm not very fond of the Karmelitenkirche because it is W2W and lacks a bell tower (I want to make some bulbs ;) ). I was thinking something more like St. Koloman or Ehrenhausen:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e5/Germany_bavaria_alps-church.jpg)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/ff/Kirche_Ehrenhausen.JPG/400px-Kirche_Ehrenhausen.JPG)

If you have any other suggestions, they'd be welcome.
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Schulmanator on February 16, 2013, 10:35:50 PM
I vote for Ehrenhausen! I have actually been to that one (pix: http://www.schulmania.info/2011sv_files/gallery02.htm). I would be thrilled to see it in game!
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: Flatron on February 17, 2013, 05:02:13 AM
That's nice. I think Ehrenhausen would be great, but what about Pfarrkirche St. Paul in Passau
So maybe bot? What would be great is the famous Karlskirche in Vienna, which is sadly enough painted white...
Title: Re: DebussyMan Showcase
Post by: DebussyMan on February 17, 2013, 11:26:25 AM
@Schulmanator: That settles it then, Ehrenhausen it is.

Though, I guess I can make both... St. Koloman is very easy, Ehrenhausen not so much, but it is small.

@Flatron:St. Paul is nice too. About Karlskirche, I started it some yearse ago and I still have the model; my problem with it was the math with the elliptical dome, but I think I might be able to solve it now.

Post by: praiodan on April 06, 2014, 04:12:52 AM
Carlos, I almost can only second what has already been said... excellent model and texturing (fab work on the stonework!).  &apls

There are two things I would suggest though, both concerning the roof. First, I think that there could be some more variety to the roof texture, it looks a bit to uniform, especially when compared how detailed the stonework texture on the chuch's front is. Second, the roof is quite big and dominating the building and apart from height differences of the aisles and the top of the vaults, there is indeed few that catches the eye. Telling from Google Earth pictures this is not to far from reality, but there seem to be kind of stairs between the vaults of the central aisle, that could definately give more visual variety to your model as well. Also, there seems to be a roof access (?) ontop of the southern entrance of the transept.
(http://www.ld-host.de/uploads/thumbnails/da7de69481e89199a9ee73ada2629dc3.png) (http://www.ld-host.de/uploads/images/da7de69481e89199a9ee73ada2629dc3.png)
(blue = stairs, green = possible access)

But this is really high-level criticism, and I kinda guess it's on your to-do-list anyway already.  ;)

Also, big kudos to you for all your brilliant work you did during my absence.  &apls &apls &apls

Post by: DebussyMan on April 07, 2014, 10:38:32 PM
Thanks, Lars. I was actually going to leave it as-is thinking noone would notice, but I was proved wrong. ;)
I had the intention to give a uniform texture to the roof to avoid drawing attention away from the facades. But I guess a little more bussyness wouldn't hurt.

This is my final version:

Debussy, Carlos

Te agradezco infinitamente por el Escorial que yo te pedí y que tuviste a bien concederme, me parece que la catedral de Mérida te quedó perfecta respecto de la catedral real de la Blanca Mérida.

Gracias por tu arduo trabajo, y abusando un poco de tu maestría, humildemente me atrevo a sugerirte 5 proyectos ( :( perdón pero solo tú podrías ejecutarlos) Me refiero a que hasta ahora has realizado 2 de las 7 catedrales que se concedieron por parte del Papa a inicios de la conquista de México y que iniciaron su construcción como catedrales en el siglo XVI, a decir:

Catedral de México (already done Masterpiece of masterpieces)
Catedral de Mérida (already done Masterpiece)
Catedral de Puebla
Catedral de la Nueva Valladolid (Morelia)
Catedral de San Cristobal (Chiapas)
Catedral de Oaxaca
Catedral de Guadalajara


Te dejo fotografías de estas 5 catedrales que completarían el juego de las 7 Catedrales que constituyeron los núcleos de evangelización de México:

Hola Jorge_Carrillo, muchas gracias por tus amables palabras. Por supuesto que las grandes catedrales de México están en mi lista, aunque la vida real me deja muy poco tiempo (y energías) para modelar. La catedral de Puebla ya está en obras de cimentación ;)  La de Oaxaca es la siguiente que haría, hace poco la visité y tengo ya mucho material fotográfico. La de morelia me parece que ya fue hecha por Hableurg, La de San Cristóbal se ve bastante interesante. Sin embargo, la de Guadalajara está fuera de mi lista, aunque la planta inicial posiblemente fue de gran calidad, el resultado final a través de los siglos no es de mi agrado, me parece un pastiche neoclásico pobremente ejecutado.  ()sad()

Sin embargo, la de Guadalajara está fuera de mi lista, aunque la planta inicial posiblemente fue de gran calidad, el resultado final a través de los siglos no es de mi agrado, me parece un pastiche neoclásico pobremente ejecutado.  ()sad()

Que gusto que estés pensando en la grandiosa catedral de Puebla, una verdadera Joya,  Y de la catedral de Oaxaca, otra hermosa catedral que junto a la catedral de México y de Puebla comparte la distribución propia del Rito Toledano de la España renacentisata, El caso de la catedral de Morelia es un gran proyecto y no se si tú sabes donde lo puedo encontrar proque si ya está hecho es otra de esas Joyas del barroco mexicano.

Respecto de la de Guadalajara, La pobre Catedral de Guadalajara es una catedral que se hizo muy humildemente en sus inicios porque en Guadalajara no había ni minas, ni industria henequenera, y por muchos siglos Guadalajara fue una ciudad más pequeña que Puebla, Morelia y que hasta la misma Mérida de modo que su catedral era pobre porque sus parroquianos también eran pobres, A eso hay que sumarle que los continuos temblores se encargaban de continuamente destruirle sus torres o campanarios lo que casi obligaba a que la catedral tuviese unas torres del estilo de la catedral de Oaxaca o de plano no tenerlas como la catedral de San Cristobal. Sin embargo La fuerza de Jalisco fue su campo, sus haciendas que producían ganado abundante y eso incrementó la actividad comercial de la ciudad a principios del siglo XIX, cuando en un terremoto de 1818 la catedral de Guadalajara perdió sus antiguas torres. Para colmo cuando Miguel Hidalgo llegó a  Guadalajara, llegó sin dinero y lo que hizo fue derretir el altar de plata de la catedral y acuñar monedas, en cierto modo la catedral de Guadalajara fue victima de la independencia de México, antes de la independéncia de México el pobres aspecto de la catedral de guadalajara quedó así:

(http://www.avacorp.com.mx/Fotos%20Antiguas/126.JPG)

Las torres originales de la catedral de esta provinciana ciudad agricola de 5000 habitantes eran así:

(http://www.semanario.com.mx/2003/345-14092003/fotos/Consgracioncampanas.gif)

Cuando finalmente México logró su independencia se inició la construcción unas nuevas torres, que también fueron destruidas en un terremoto de 1849, y solo hasta 1854 se terminaron las actuales torres y se continuó con la conclusión del sagrario metropolitano, que se hizo netamente en estilo neoclásico.

Las nuevas torres se diseñaron para darle notoriedad sin que por ello se respetara el estilo arquitectónico austero que correspondía a la catedral gemela de la catedral de Mérida. Sí, así es, la catedral de Guadalajara inició su construcción al mismo tiempo que la catedral de Mérida y con el mismo desplante y con el mismo diseño de tres naves de igual altura que posee la catedral de Mérida, en parte porque este diseño no requería columnas tan fuertes ni contrafuertes tan pesados que soportaran la alta bóveda central y que transmitieran la carga a las bóvedas laterales y estas a su vez a las capillas laterales adosadas al salón prinicpal.

Si lo quieres ver así, estóy disculpando un poco el aspecto de la catedral de Guadalajara que fue resultado de la continua búsqueda de un estilo que diese notoriedad a una ciudad que quería destacar pero que no tenía recursos para hacerlo y que cuando finalmente tuvo prosperidad tuvo que adoptar y adaptar un estilo que era el de la época.

Pongamoslo de este punto de vista, La catedral de Guadalajara es más antigua que más del 95% de todas las poblaciones de Estados Unidos. la primera piedra se colocó en 1561 un año antes que la de Mérida.
