Hi everyone ! I am new to these forums and City Engine and I am currently looking for a cityscape of Melbourne, Australia. I would attempt to create my own however, I am currently pressed for time and lack the skills required. If anyone could provide assistance as to how I would go about mapping Melbourne's infrastructure or knows of a source in which to download it from, I would really appreciate it.
Do you have the building footprints? If so, the easiest way would be to use one of the pre-existing rule files created for the tutorials and apply it to the building footprints (would be easiest if you have the height attributes for the buildings also because then you can link it up to get the proper heights, otherwise and adverage would have to do).
If you don't have the building footprints you could probably obtain some from OpenStreetMap (OSM) and import them into CE to use.
