Cool! I can't wait to see how this turns out! Are going to do this with more models? Like cars etc.

    August 27th, 2013 @ 8:41 pm
    No silly, this is only for future City pack. Like cars and other models will come out soon you'll have to purchase it.
    August 27th, 2013 @ 8:44 pm
    Sorry, I mean cars etc. FOR the futuristic city! ;-)

Hey Andrew and team, just a heads up. You need to make sure the models you receive are original works. I am not sure how you do that. The community here is pretty cool but you have to watch yourself. The reason I am writing this is because samsung already got stung TWICE with their "submit a photo from your samsung phone" competition and one guy who's picture was stolen was a fellow Indonesian brother.

Great initiative though and very inspirational. Thanks for everything.

hey pal i want to know one thing, i am not that good in texturing so is it ok if i send you just the models ???
    August 28th, 2013 @ 9:27 am
    Yeah, how does one texture exactly?
August 28th, 2013 @ 12:26 am
I've got a nice detailed model but it's way too high poly for elements (tried it myself and the plug in kept crashing).

Should I send it anyways ?

Cheers :)

The time has come for me to communicate with you guys! However, this will likely serve as a place for me to vent and tell you what’s on my mind. Who knows what might come out.

    3D Max Render Time: 60 hrs! Wow, you have patience. I would have died of boredom. BTW nice effects! The best was the scene where everything is reflected in the eye. Really impressive. 10/10.

    Good Work! Nice OF, Cameramove an Helimodel i think. The streets are a little bit emty at 11 sec ,but i think its andrews blame. We need a vehicle and a Human Pack all ready for animate in E3D V2 :-)
    Fabiano Peres
    August 30th, 2013 @ 8:02 am
    Hi Joe. Thanks for your comment.
    Yes, the street are totally empty. It would be amazing some trees, cars and people...

    I like to think it was a very cold night at 4:00am and everybody was sleeping. Nobody would go to the streets that way :-)
    Jason
    September 14th, 2013 @ 7:57 am
    hey nice work fast paced but yeah no natural elements, u should checkout tree[d] i use it for my trees all the time i have speed tree but tree[d] is so damn quik and easy btw its free just google it if u wana make quick trees,bush,weeds etc good luck with future projects
August 29th, 2013 @ 1:54 am

    August 29th, 2013 @ 1:03 pm
    Hard to comment this cuz it doesn't make any sense.
    Don't wanna hurt ur feelings but no CGI, no clouds, no smooth animation, no 'story', and the music is terrible for this animation.
    Dont want to be Simon Cowell but you get the picture..

    Anyway keep up and you'll find a way.
    Tob
    August 29th, 2013 @ 10:09 pm
    i agree to Vinnie K

August 29th, 2013 @ 5:49 am
Hey Kramer! I'm sure you guys have considered this already, but what would you say to the idea of Metro 2 having random trees/parks? Aerial shots don't look convincing enough for me without that detail.
August 29th, 2013 @ 6:40 am
yeah because no one will be surfing the net on the 17th... gtav baby.

hye andrew sir please tell me i dont have metropolitan pack so can i use this ? or it require metropolitan ?

and 1 more question is it include futuristic bridge ?
    August 29th, 2013 @ 5:20 pm
    Hi, I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't be able to use this without the metropolitan pack. I can try to make some kind of bridge, maybe it will end up in the pack for you to use.
    Tob
    August 29th, 2013 @ 10:23 pm
    What has the futuristic city pack got to do with the metroplitan Pack.........?

    No you cant use it, because all 3-D Buildingsmodels are only in combination with the metropolitan pack useable. it is the same as the sports pack. you can only use 3-D Sports models, if you had andrews sports pack! etc.
    To Andrew: What about same % for my next VC Buy? :-)

    For all who are now confused: its a Joke!
    Prathamesh
    August 30th, 2013 @ 12:27 pm
    is that true i cant use this without metropolitan pack :-(
    but it is a free model pack . why i cant use this ?
    Hristo
    August 31st, 2013 @ 10:18 am
    Guys you DO NOT need metropolitan in order to use the Futuristic Community Pack. All these packs are simply a collection of different 3D Models. That's like asking if you can use a model you downloaded off of turbosquid just because you do not own another model that is avaiable on the site.
    vipin
    September 2nd, 2013 @ 3:17 am
    yaar you dont need any other pack to use this ok make it very clear on ur mind non of them are co-related to each other you can use anything you want...ok are you understood ??? or i need to explain in Hindi ???

Are textures required? Will we need to create our own or can we use textures from other sources?
    August 29th, 2013 @ 5:23 pm
    Hi, you need to add textures when uploading your model and you have to make sure they are correctly UV mapped. There are some websites that offer royalty free textures for free like http://www.cgtextures.com/

    Very nice Ghostlayer.
    You did a very good job even with even with no animation to the character. The mood is very like the game.

    Please, take a look at my video with Element 3D and Tell me what you think.

I'll model a building wearing a giant rubber boot 'cause the cities of the future will be under water, man. Also, since I'm a lazy hippie, I don't know how to model.

September 2nd, 2013 @ 4:52 am
Andrew just wondering, so E3D is like a game engine (sorry if I'm wrong) so just wondering if game engines like cryengine are able to do real time reflection and tessellation, would E3D ever going to be able to do things like that? maybe version 3 or something?
    Will
    September 2nd, 2013 @ 8:10 pm
    Lol I'm not Andrew but I thought I'd answer this anyway; no, E3D is not a game engine. WILL it be? No one knows, except Andrew, maybe.

Wow, looking forward to see the full package ... Watched the Trailer of Star Trek - Into Darkness again yesterday and remembered the awesome moment in cinema i saw the end titles. When does the in-depth behind the secenes will be released ? I'm so curious about it.

    You could probably still submit since they're still compiling and proofreading the other entries. Definitely worth a shot since I know they've been pushing for a lot of quality submissions (hence the initial deadline extension)

September 21st, 2013 @ 7:04 pm
I wish I knew enough 3D know-how to contribute... but to everyone who is contributing, please make various city set objects like flying cars (police cars too?), bus stations, monorails, highways, etc so they can be inserted into city scenes. Basically anything you'd need to make an indie film look like a big budget film. I can't wait to see the results of what people create. Thanks! :)

    September 21st, 2013 @ 7:06 pm
    Just noticed my comment is too late... hopefully a second collection will be made with the things I suggested... or maybe VC can do it themselves? Thanks again anyway, I'm sure it'll be great.
