Absolute Textures is now shipping Cityscape--the followup to its first texture library (Landscape Architecture), which contains 1,081 high-resolution textures captured in various North American cities. The textures include 347 individual buildings (some of which are also represented by night textures), roof tops, vents, doors, antennas, and many other details that are needed to create a reslistic feeling of being in an urban city. An interactive, 3D city scape using the textures can be viewed on-line to get a feel for the textures available (uses the Groove GX plug-in and only works on Internet Explorer for Windows). All images are in JPEG format, and most of the clip-art style images such as trees, streetlights, etc. also have JPEG alpha masks. There are no bump or displacement maps provided. Cityscape is available as a CD for $299 (plus shipping), or as a downloadable version for $289. In either case, it comes with an HTML-based catalog. Thumbnails of the entire texture library can be viewed on-line before purchasing.
