I remember back in the day some free plugin that generated cities. Does anyone remember what that plugin was, or if there is something similar? Thanks.

I have used this Blender plugin to create a city: http://arnaud.ile.nc/sce/

As I recall it was not hard to export the city from Blender in a format that Lightwave could read.

This is interesting, but I don't know the first thing about blender.

This is a quick test I did a while back, using the Suicidator_City_Generator python script in Blender, then exported the model out and into LightWave. The attached image is a LightWave render.

By the way, has anyone got Citygen to work in LW9.6?

I tried City Gen on my Mac Pro Desktop, and it crashes if I try to generate a city larger than the default value. I downloaded Blender, and the python script, but can't seem to figure out a way to bring it up. Can anyone give me some clues?

If you don't already have Python (2.6.5) installed, download (http://www.python.org/download/) and install. Then run Blender and open the Suicidator_City_Generator_v0.41.blend file from the File, Open menu.

You should see a text window with the script. Hover your mouse over the text area then hit Alt+P. Otherwise select "Run Python Script" from the Text menu at the bottom of the screen. Then you should see the dialog come up.

Or follow this quick start guide:

http://arnaud.ile.nc/sce/tutorial.php

Alternatively, you could open the script SCG_v0.41.py in a text editor and paste the following at the top:


#!BPY
"""
Name: 'Suicidator City Generator'
Blender: 249
Group: 'Wizards'
Tip: 'Create city'
"""

Then with Blender closed, copy SCG_v0.41.py to your Blender / .blender / scripts folder (or Mac equivalent). Run Blender, then use the button at the lower left corner of any viewport to select Window Type: "Scripts Window" then select Wizards, "Suicidator City Generator".

Have you seen this (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109896)

I could be used to generate Sci-Fi cities (essentially it's a greeble and Nurnies tool) but still, it all helps....somehow!
