Digital Urban, at University College London, have been busy building a virtual London in the Crysis Engine. This impressive video shows St. Pauls and the Tate Modern:
Here’s the impressive part, from the comments over at Rock Paper Shotgun:
The movie is only a work in progress – as the blog states, although we feel crysis is impressive in the level of detail that can be achieved in only two days and thats including working out how to use it.
We will have a tutorial online sometime next week, fingers crossed…. its all about outreach and sharing the techniques.
Our London model goes out to the M25 covering 3 million buildings for those interested
It’s like a scaled up version of people using Quake or Unreal Tournament to make their schools and offices…
