Sure you could fritter your time away and fiddle with a 3D City on an iPad, but what if you could create realistic 3D cities… with a push of a button, and for free? That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

It’s also what Arnaud Couturier is talkin’ about. He’s developed the very fast, very cool Suicidator City Generator for Blender. It’s a lightweight python script that allows you to set parameters for textures, streets and size, then generate cities in an instant. That’s the easy part. Only thing left after that is to apply your Blender skills to get realistic renderings.

“With it, you can automatically create entire, three-dimensional modern cities in a matter of seconds by adjusting various parameters, such as city size and complexity, rather than creating each building, each street, and each texture manually.”

Here are some of the results you can get… and be sure to catch the video demonstration at the end.
