This is a mod I made (out of pure boredom), replacing all the copy-pasted buildings on Ocean Drive with new ones, (somewhat) based off of buildings found on the real Ocean Drive in Miami.

 

Here are pictures of the buildings:

There are obviously some bugs I need to iron out, also improving of some stuff; changing textures, bits of buildings, etc.
But I'm just showing off my progress as it is now - while typing this I already have several things on mind to change and fix, but I'd appreciate your criticisms, ideas, and the like. :)

All of them look really well done, Kalvin, well done!

 

but I'd appreciate your criticisms, ideas, and the like. :)

 

Sweet! In that case, could you make the Decowalk more accurate to the real one like you were doing?

Add some prelighting/vertex colouring and they will look even better. :)

Why don't you add some real time reflections to them windows instead of what you got there.

The buildings look awesome! good job, but you need to improve the quality of textures.

The buildings look too bright, the white ones look too white compared to others.

 

Other than that, it's a job well done. :cookie: :cookie:

After a long while, thought I'd give an update.
Here's my amateur attempt at Night Time versions :p

Thanks, a few of them I don't like how they look, so I'll be changing them. (The last two, being an example).

Anyways, more news, need your opinion on this one.
I made one of the buildings closer to its real life counterpart, do you guys prefer this version, or the previous?

Old one:

(It is an old picture as well, a few textures were changed but it's still pretty much the same)

New one:

Oh, and if you guys are wondering in the slightest what the buildings I took 'inspiration' from look like in real life, these are them. (Taken from Google Maps, arranged in order as to how they are in the first post - are also pretty big images, so proceed with caution. :p)

I like the first one (the old one) but I don't like its colors of textures. I think that you should try the textures of the new one on the old one. ;)

I swapped the colors of the old with the new (other than what you said with the "new with the old"), just to see how it looks:

The colors/textures look much better now. I'd like to see them at day time. Can you show some more screens?

I'm not sure whether or not you mean the new one (the 'new one' from the original post), or the new new one (with the old colors on the new one) :p

But here's some more pictures of the 'new new' one:

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't explain my idea well. By the old one I meant this building:

Old one:
Nvt5Zf0l.jpg
(It is an old picture as well, a few textures were changed but it's still pretty much the same)

My Idea is to use the previous building but with the green textures of the following building:

 

New one:
EhCbzpel.jpg
 

I hope that everything is realized. :)
