free urban (low poly) maps ?

Recommended Posts

Hey there, does anyone know a place where I can find a big, fat, low-poly urban map (maybe intended for a motor racing game)? It doesn't have to look extremely pretty, just be able to give enough of an impression of moving through a (low detail) city. this here: click is pretty small, as in, count of buildings (and not free). Yeah I could repeat it, but that would kinda suck. Purpose: performance testing a renderer "in experimental stage", for weaker (mobile) devices. I don't have useful data to test this thing in a meaningful way, and don't feel like spending $$$ for this my hobby project with content that I, after all, won't really care much about. I'm not planning use it in an actual game. It just should be some "genuine" map data :-) Preferably urban environments, low poly. Building interiors should not be present. (as in, extra polies that are irrelevant to what I want to do) My countlessly repeated "some cubes of different sizes" tile is not good for demonstration or useful testing I guess. Easily readable formats like .3ds (and maybe .x, although I don't have a reader class at hand, but I suppose there's stuff on the net) would be cool. Thx, Unshaven [Edited by - UnshavenBastard on September 13, 2009 12:31:32 PM]

just a note, on sketchup 3d warehouse, if the models you want don't come in collada format (ie. skp or whatever the sketchup format is), you can use sketchup to export to google earth model format, which is just a zip with a renamed extension, inside you will find the file in collada format.

This is unfortunately not free, but if you are interested you should try out the 30 day free trial of the CityEngine Software: 3D Modeling of Urban Environments.

darn, the trial is, of course, export-disabled ^^
And the $$$ version is waaaay too $$$ for what I need it for.

sorry, it looks like it'd be something cool to play with, but I don't have much time right now, and considering that I cannot actually use this software for anything, I don't feel like investing that time.
I mean it - there is no commercial stuff behind my asking ;-)
Investing that amount of money is out of question.
