Recreation: Caerdydd

15 02 2006

Steve’s done a pretty incredible job on the modelling thus far, the athletic club and cinema, needs some work primarily, but overall just a few details are needed before he can send it my way for nightlighting. The huge gap over on the far right hand side is where the BT tower will go, although I made a massive error apparently theres a smaller building connected to the BT tower right at the back that needed to be modelled. Absolutely hideous looking though, something you’d imagine a top-security prison would look like (small windows, steel out front), it’s been named: “The ugly building”, thankfully it’s only small and out of the way. Although why any architect who designed the thing would think such a prisonesque building would look attractive is anyones guess. πŸ˜‰

/\\/Something familiar eh?

Martin kindly opened a poll on the SCC forums amongst others for people to vote on the next building to be BATted, the choices are the “Pierhead Building” and “The National Assembly” in Cardiff Bay and City Hall in the City Centre *again dreads neo-classical designs*. So you (who ever the hell is reading this can vote there or you can comment here, you dont have to be registered either), I started a little on Cardiff City Hall:

/\ Not much I realise, but then I may have to switch to modelling the pierhead depending on the votes.

In other News:

I need to seriously revise for Welsh, I’m starting to feel myself falling behind abit. Half-term should be alright though, as long as I keep going over it, it’ll sink in. We’ve started learning the whole “mynd” thing, such as “Dw i’n mynd nofio”, “Dw i’n mynd safle bws” etc.. That wasn’t too hard at all. Although I have nothing to compare; I reckon cwrs mynediad aint half bad compared to the older ones. According to the last Welsh Day school I went to in “Brynglas” (Casnewydd), It only came into effect this year. Nice to know I’m a guinea pig =p.

Sometimes I wish Newport wasn’t so shit. Has anyone seen the state of the former art college next to the Usk, by TJ’s? They should never have let that building disintegrate. more shockingly, I was talking to Andrew from work monday, apparently they are going to rip down some buildings near there, ahh well whats a couple of old buildings. I mean Newport council did build a road through an ancient castle, humouresly now that the new distributor road has been built they will be ripping them out. No foresight at all. No wonder I prefer Cardiff better!

*Note to self* Must get drunk on the weekend.

Dwi ond newydd weithio mas mai graffeg ar gyfer Sim City yw’r rhain. Mae nhw’n edrych yn dda iawn, dwi hefyd yn hoffi’r car HEDDLU ar bysiau (er ‘dy nhw ddim cystal a’r un dynais i ar MS Word ar gyfer fy blog Saesneg!)

Fydd nhw ar gael i unrhywun lawr lwytho unrhywle? Os felly hoffwn bwyntio hyn mas i pobl ar, mae llawer o gamers yno, a digonedd o ffans Sim City dwi’n siwr.

I’ve only just worked out that these are graphics for Sim City. They look really good, I also like the HEDDLU car and the busues (although not half as good as the one I drew with MS Word on my English blog!)

Will they be available for anyone to download anywhere? If so I’d like to point them out to people on, there’s a lot of gamers on there, and plenty of Sim City fans I’m sure.

Sure! (We need more Welshies about) Right now I’m just waiting for the millennium stadium to be finished so I can export the whole complex in-game, It’s purpose is for my “Recreation: Cardiff” thread which will open sometime soon. I’ve scaled a satellite image of Cardiff, from Penarth to Castleton (I believe) and from Cardiff Bay to Llandaff in the north, once I finish terraforming it, I’ll put it on my blog so you can check it out, It’s a HUGE map though absolutely colossal, put’s Cardiff on the map as it were :-p.

As you can tell I’ve kinda started to BAT (Building Architect Tool, used also as a term for modelling something) “City Hall”, which I’m really enjoying right now (when I can find time that is!), despite the fact I i dread neo-classical designs, my hope it to eventually recreate the entire city to scale (tough eh, thank fook for google earth!)

Oh, yeah I saw your VERY impressive Caerdydd bws (chucking in any Welsh vocabulary), If you’d like I’d be happy to photoshop a new header image with the 3D bus, if you’d like that is πŸ˜‰

As soon as I’ve built up enough BAT’s and city automa (cars, buses, ambulances etc..) I’ll put them up for download. πŸ˜€
