Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Night and Day City is a modular city set to create your own cityscapes and skylines ? or use the preset scenes and city blocks for easy setup. All assets have a relatively low polygon count so that large numbers of buildings and other props can be used without bogging down your scenes. While the main aim is to use these for medium to long shots, there is enough detail to successfully use them for closer images too. There are five core buildings designs and each building has a range of optional parts which can have visibility turned on and off to create a wide range of looks from each building. Each also comes with normal and tall versions, 8 color sets and with lights on and off, so any obvious duplication can be avoided in large scenes. There are also some optional frontages to customize the ground floors, and these include shop fronts with a pseudo 3D effect for maximum realism with a relatively low polygon count.

To complete your scenes there is a road surface, road markings, bus shelter, bench, litter bin, tree, grassy areas, advertising boards, etc to create complete street scenes. I have also included low resolution people and vehicles to give your city streets an inhabited feel ? these are intended for longer shots only as they are very low poly, the groups I have included can easily be hidden to use your own characters or vehicles in the foreground.

I have included five complete and different premade city blocks and two larger multi-block scenes, all with day and night variants. A common trick in the movies for night scenes is to use wet roads to reflect the lights so I have also included this as an option (it can be used in daytime scenes too!). And because it is a modular set, you can use as many or as few assets as you need to complete your scene.

Additional Details

  • The large multi-block scenes can tax some systems, if you find this I recommend hiding or deleting the trees (which are the highest poly item), these have been grouped to make this easy.
  • Navigating in a large scene can be a challenge, if you create a camera and then move it using the top view to where you need it, this can be a lot quicker than doing it from the camera view.
