This is Good

Hello Skimbat,
I work for a museum in Paris, France (Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine). Every semester we publish a short brochure on our activities for young audiences. Next February we will host our first 3D workshop for teenagers, and we would like to illustrate this workshop with one of these photos. Would you agree to send me the "City display" photo in high definition? Of course, we would credit you on the brochure! Please feel free to contact me: [email protected] . Thanks in advance and have a good day! A. MacGillivray

These would be great for Battletech games, I think.

Instructions

All these building where modeled in Google Sketch-Up based on my memories of playing Sim City 2000. (Still my favorite computer game of all time)

This is an ongoing effort. I model these buildings when I am in-between projects and need something to clear my head. Expect more buildings to be added to this thing as time goes on.

Notes:
-The Sketch-up file is included here, when downloading Sketch-up files from Thingiverse the extension (.skp)gets stripped off the end. You will need to manually add .skp to the end of the file name for it to open.

-All the buildings where modeled at 10x scale, to allow for more detail. When you export from Sketch-up to Replicator G you will need to scale the buildings by 0.1 to get them to the proper size

--Update Oct 23 2011--
-Road Tiles and Microwave Power Plant models have been added

Cool!!!
Is there any programm that can export the buildings from the game into .stl files (like with minecraft) or you've simulated it yourself?

TopperDEL on Jan 12, 2012 said:

Thank you so much for these files!

I just printed the Capitol Building, and many others will follow! I have the idea of a little city hanging on my wall as a kind of 3d-picture. ;)

So, would you be able to add a curved street fro me? That would be very kind!

Thank you again!

These are beautiful, they print wonderfully.

Can you check the scale of the light industrial buildings? One of them seems really, really big and one of them is really tiny.

Everything else is the right size.

WOW!!! i'd certainly buy these 3d printed models!

Very, very cool. Like my cut-and-fold Asterix Gaulish village in the early seventies, only
&
gt;tougher
&
lt;. I don't suppose these are scaled to match 1/300th microarmour? Tank battles in Sim City!

My wife wants ancient Roman buildings, now that she's seen what is possible.

Incredibly awesome! Sim City 2000 was the game that made me NEED to get a computer.

Any plans to model the arcologies? I've always wanted to print a Darco...

Thank you for all the work you put into these.

Pointedstick on Oct 23, 2011 said:

+1 for Arcologies. Can't wait until the Launch and Plymouth arcos are up

I can't thank you enough for posting these. I'v been admiring them since I saw them at your table at the KC MakerFare.

psync on Oct 21, 2011 said:

Have you made a coffee table out of them yet?? You should add the roads that are in the sketchup shot too =)

peter_ on Oct 20, 2011 said:

haha, well done! :)

MakerBlock on Oct 20, 2011 said:

So, so, so epic...

cymon on Oct 20, 2011 said:

Hmm... needs a rule set. Like Conway's game of life, but with buildings.

Skimbal on Oct 20, 2011 said:

Good Suggestion. If you write something up, post it to Thingiverse as a derivative

schmarty on Oct 20, 2011 said:

SO AWESOME. Thank you so much for putting this on Thingiverse.

AndyP on Oct 20, 2011 said:

Fun. I was always annoyed with SimCity because you had to keep growing or else your city died. Well, that's not a problem now because I don't mind printing out more parts!

DigitalBytes on Oct 20, 2011 said:

Also one of my favourite games! The detail on these is really great. Thanks for sharing Skimbal.
