Title: Show us your... futuristic-science fiction cities and space colonies
Post by: Terring7 on March 28, 2010, 11:46:46 AM
Do you like building mad cities from the future? With vertical farms, spaceships and exotic skyscrapers? How about colonies on planet Mars? Now every futurist will have a nice topic to share with us his/her best out-of-this-world creations. Here is a small collection of older images.

Antigravity racers ;D

Pretty creative.  I have a ton of the futuristic lots/bats including everything you've shown except the antigravity racers.  I particularly liked your spaceport. :thumbsup:

Some months ago i build a village on a pyramid, called "Village Hill".

Be careful however, some of those cool creations has bugs and may crash your game. For example, the space elevator will crash your game when you are going to build it, because of a missing file. Find the file (it's not very difficult) and the space elevator will work :thumbsup:

Some months ago i proposed an idea at Simtropolis (http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=23&threadid=106497&enterthread=y) about a new, alternative way to build skyscraper districts without the "urban jungle" effect. Because i don't agree with this...

(http://www.jazzhostels.com/blog/wp-content/gallery/skyline/nyc-skyscrapers-skyline.jpg)

... i will prefer this ;D

Hi Terring,

The cityimages in reply #9 remind me of the cities full of arcologies that are usually the end stage of SC2000 cities. Did you ever play that game?

And how's your cylinder world going?
Title: Re: Show us your... futuristic-science fiction cities and space colonies
Post by: Terring7 on June 16, 2010, 08:46:54 AM
I didn't play Simcity 2000 but i know about the arcologies, especially those that get launched into space for colonizing new worlds :) . There were also proportions about arcologies in Simcity 3000, but never made them ()sad() . The cylinder world is not ready yet, i still make some calculations for it, and still test the Terraformer... and still be in the Navy :'(

This is a typical city of the 41st century. Full with tall buildings and underground expansions, an ordinary city is always surrounded by naturalistic parks, ponds and forests. Thanks to antigravity vessels and space colonization, those cities doesn't need downtowns and suburbans. In fact, they are mostly like the cells of the brain than an autonomous city.

One of the most common ideas about the cities of the future is something like this...

(http://www.godwyngroup.com/ENVIRONMENT/IMG/3.jpg)

(http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/116/ecopolis.jpg)

So i tried to recreate those ideas on Simcity and here are my results :)

It's a bit too much, but it's still enough to boost the aura of your Sims. With so many trees, you can even go everywhere you want without a car! Just jump from tree to tree like a monkey, thanks to robotic parts or genetic engineering.

The Venus Project proposes a Research City that would use the most sophisticated available resources and construction techniques. Its geometrically elegant and efficient circular arrangement will be surrounded by, and incorporated into the city design, parks and lovely gardens. This city will be designed to operate with the minimum expenditure of energy using the cleanest technology available, which will be in harmony with nature to obtain the highest possible standard of living for everyone. This system facilitates efficient transportation for city residents, eliminating the need for automobiles.

(http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/1207/venuscity1.jpg)

(http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/8118/venuscity2.jpg)

This is the central dome that house the core of the cybernated system, educational facilities, access center, computerized communications networking systems, health and child care facilities.

(http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/2596/venuscity3.jpg)

The buildings surrounding the central dome provide the community with centers for cultural activities such as the arts, theater, exhibitions, concerts, access centers, and various forms of entertainment.

(http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/702/venuscity4.jpg)

Next is the design and development complex for this research and planning city.

(http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/6974/venuscity5.jpg)

Adjacent the research facilities are dining and other amenities.

(http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/7554/venuscity6.jpg)

The residential district have a variety of free form unique architecture to fulfill the various needs of the occupant.

(http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/3826/venuscity7.jpg)

Areas are set aside for renewable clean sources of energy such as wind generators, solar, heat concentrating systems, geothermal, photovoltaic and others. Next are the indoor hydroponic facilities and outdoor agricultural belts which will be used to grow a wide variety of organic plants without the use of pesticides. A circular waterway for irrigation and filtration surrounds the agricultural belt.

(http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/4125/venuscity8.jpg)

The outermost perimeter is utilized for recreational activities such as biking, golfing, hiking and riding, etc.

I somehow fear that smoke production will not be allowed under a dome.....
Otherwise your project is interesting enough.

This "smoke" is just air. This air can be hot to warm the city in the winter and cold to cool the city in the summer.

We have land cities, underground cities, sea floating cities, underwater cities, orbital cities and extraterrestrial cities. So how about antigravity cities?

Need more space? Look to the heavens! Skynet is a network of floating buildings that creates a whole antigravity city. Those buildings are in fact floating arcologies, with roads, apartments, parks, civic services e.t.c.. They can also attached by taller buildings to create vertical bridges.

Skynet, the future of construction ;D

Post by: Terring7 on July 31, 2012, 02:49:29 AM
It's modular architecture. The buildings are made by parts that can assemble with many ways. It's like a 3D puzzle, without "right" and "wrong" solutions. The buildings can upgraded by adding or removing parts. Living buildings, no more grey ugly dead structures.

Post by: Terring7 on February 22, 2013, 03:26:46 PM
Always wonder in what kind of cities we'll live in the year 2113? Well, let's have a look.

A global system of sea cities can easily accommodate many millions of people and relieve the land based population pressures. They can provide the inhabitants with information and serve as natural sea aquariums without artificially enclosing marine life. Some of them will be mobile, like the Freedom Ship (http://www.freedomship.com/), and travel the world like ships.
 
(http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/2691/newcity5feb001361545248.jpg)

If we do not maintain a balance between the population and the earth's carrying capacity we may have to move our cities not only seaward, but subterranean as well. For inhospitable or sensitive regions of the planet, such as forests and desert areas, underground cities would provide entirely comfortable homes for many. Numerous elevators will readily allow residents to enjoy skiing and other recreational activities on the surface. The primary source of power for these cities, where feasible, would be geothermal energy.
 
(http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/9852/newcity6jan001361547736.jpg)

In the long run however, a single-planet species will not survive at all. If humanity want to survive for hundreds, thousands, millions or even billions of years, it must ultimately populate space and other planets as well. Orbital colony, space stations intended as a permanent settlement, will orbit around Earth, Sun, Mars and other world of the Solar System and beyond. We're not talking about space stations like I.S.S., but huge orbital cities like O'Neil Cylinder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O'Neill_cylinder) and Stanford Torus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_torus).
 
(http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/8724/newcity2feb001361548244.jpg)
 
But superior technology demands superior wisdom as well, especially based on our scientific methods and knowledges. If we don't consider ourselves as citizens of the Cosmos, if we don't declare Earth as our common home, if we don't build up a brand new economy that it based on natural resources and our actual needs, and if we don't educate ourselves and our children with the scientific method in order to liberate us from any fear and "musts"... we're doomed...

That's true. Many artists and writers tend to forget that cities have pasts. Even in the distant future, you will always be surrounded by the evidence of earlier times, like Acropolis in Athens. Unless of course if you built a city from scratch in the wilderness at some insane pace.

Since I'm focused on my loting projects, my cities are not what they used to be. Even my plugins folder is almost empty (I don't even have N.A.M. yet). But sometimes I build a city, just to do something different and test my lots. This is a small just-for-fun city I have made.

Wiimeiser: Most of my buildings, including the one that looks like a mitsudomoe, are SimMars (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/25031-simmars-beta-3/) buildings reloted by me (https://community.simtropolis.com/files/file/27230-barsoom-project-part-1-memories-of-the-colonists/) to fit on SimEarth. 4 years ago I was also busy replacing the default Maxis buildings with SimMars buildings, but my PC died. Now I have a new PC and I'm going not only to resurrect this project, but also to update my already released lots.

I know that the game was published 15 years ago, but is there a mod which allows to play with more modern mechanics such as self-driving cars? I ran into that article (https://tranio.com/articles/how-self-driving-cars-will-change-the-property-market_5386/) recently and wondered whether there was a mod that featured this. Because if this technology is supposed to change how we buy houses, it will definitely have an impact on urban planning in the future.
Title: Re: Show us your... futuristic-science fiction cities and space colonies
Post by: APSMS on September 22, 2018, 09:04:41 PM
I'm not sure self-driving cars would fundamentally change the way that the game plays, since we still can't avoid the limitation of providing all residences with car access, and cities probably won't look significantly different as a result. Maybe you could have greater urban sprawl, but if you simply wanted to simulate less traffic you could probably just use the very high capacity setting in the NAM TSCT and use that to simulate the reduction in traffic jams that self-driving cars would allow for.

One of my favorite kinds of future cities is what I call 3D cities. It's cities made by buildings so big that can hold buildings, roads and even avenues, airports, whole neighborhoods, and even entire cities on their roofs. Keep this going and you'll have buildings on top of bigger buildings, which are on top of even bigger buildings, which are on top of even bigger buildings! The next old concepts can give you an idea.

This is the kind of cities I'm now recreating at SimCity, and this is the very first one. As you can see, this city is actually an arcology surrounded by industries, which is big enough to support a residential zone and a smaller arcology, which is still big enough to support a commercial zone and the central core.

That's some nice play with different terrain levels! Looks interesting :)

This is my first city that takes the concept of 3D cities into a more practical way, by becoming a multi-level city. Based on Francisco Mujica's 100-Story City, a 1929 concept about multi-level city...

...I made a city with a big ground level and a smaller one above. The result is having 2 cities over each other, independent from each other but also connected to each other. As you can see, the upper level consists by a few and smaller buildings, connected to each other by bridges and by the ground level by stairs. Of course those buildings are on the roof of bigger buildings, so we can imagine that Sims can just use elevators to change level, or "city roof" as we can call it. The next experiments will have larger and even more city roofs and a much larger variety of combinations and designs . For now, this is what I've made.
