This City is a combination of 14 yrs worth of contracted projects designed and detailed through We Think 3D LLC, and miscellaneous buildings from Google 3D Warehouse. Many of the building are actually completed, some are under construction, and some made it through CD phase and Bid, but got shelved due to the political arena and budget issues in 2008. All projects are in the State of Louisiana. The City of Lake Charles, Louisiana and Sulphur, Louisiana.
Many of the key buildings were already modeled. The City was only worked on during nights and weekends since i had a full-time day job, and took almost 9 month to complete.
The city started in Lumion 5.5 and ended with Lumion 6.3, just 4 day after 6.5 was released.
City began in sketchup pro as one big city that sized at 1.6GB. My laptop could not handle the file in Lumion very good, so I broke it up into about 12 different quadrants and managed them with the Layers.
The animations were created in 3 separate moves and put together with TrakAxPC.
1st part (the city rise from water)=20 hours
2nd part (walk through city)=96 hours
3rd part (drone city flythru)=502 hours
