Velegrad is a Ecumenopoli, a city that stretches across the entire planetary surface.It a booming town thats at the centre of interplanetary shipping lanes.This means that it has a large commercial district, but also a thriving residential area, as pictures. It is a colourful and exotic place due to the many alien influences, and festivals, that due to many homeworlds and cultures,happen almost every other day.
The atmosphere is mostly clean in these areas due to a restriction on private traffic, and an abundance of free public transport. The different alien influences are seen in the different building architecture and street color. Surprisingly however the population is still only forty percent alien.
The basis of this Velegrad series is to provide snapshot scenes of the different districts on the ecumenopoli of Velegrad. Please stay tuned for more.
This street definitely looks busy and well-populated, but the lighting doesn't fit the open-air street atmosphere you were going for. Also, the buildings could maybe do with some more texture on them in places.
Nice build! This reminds me of an Indian city (city in India), mixed with Coursount (from Star Wars), mixed with a shopping mall! My favorite part is the flower bed in the middle of the street! Keep up the good MOCing!
Very nice usage of parts, the colours look very nice. I love the overall smooth look and presentation of this, the use of barrels for the tree trunk is clever and the use of flags for the banner is very nifty! Overall, a very nice MOC!
