Description

One of the most time-consuming parts of building a 3D city is making the texture maps. No more – the Skyscraper filter makes them for you! Due to number of controls, they have been grouped by similar function. The first checkbox in a given set of controls (in CAPITAL LETTERS, such as "COLUMNS") turns on or off the entire set.IMPORTANT: SIMULATION MODE – Turn this mode OFF for generating final maps for 3D modeling. Simulation mode gives you a preview with reflections similar to a 3D rendering, with sky and clouds (or the source image) reflecting from the windows and environment from the structural parts."COLORS AS GRAY" makes the structural elements in shades of gray, using only the lightness of the colors. Leave unchecked to access full range of colors. Doesn't affect interior elements or glass.Tip: Build one building to your liking and do Variations with "low" or "medium" Randomization Level for Variations and Controls.For more info see Comments on Filters...
