Making a city is hard work. This is true even if you’re working on City of Titans and your main focus is upon making a city which is sufficiently plausible as a superhero playground. The latest development post talks about how the team is making that task a bit more doable with the help of a Builder, a specialized tool that allows the team to quickly assemble buildings throughout the city to look hand-assembled rather than just making generic blank boxes.
Since the game’s city is in New England, laying out the streets correctly (i.e. according to insane logic from hundreds of years ago that subsequently got paved) and making sure the shape of everything looks right is already a time-consuming process. The game opts for the faster method of making the buildings by having a stock set of “building parts” which can be combined into a structure, which would normally still require a fair amount of time for a given modeler to turn those parts into a plausible building. However, the Builder can be fed information and simply produce a viable building in moments. Check out some video of building creation just below.
