Opinions on my WIP City?

Hello Developers,

I am currently making a retro style driving game and I am working on the map currently. I am in need of feedback or constructive criticism (even if that means saying “your builds look awful, never touch studio again”)

Small note: The map is built to mimic the style of 2014 - 2017 era brick building

The Photos
Industrial Estate

So far, only some layouts finished

This area will feature some parking and some power plants / factories in the background with warehouses around. Up in the Northern area of this district will be some commercial buildings and an entrance to the main downtown with an entrance to the housing district nearby

Housing District

More of this area is completed, however

This area will feature some small parks behind the houses and some other paths leading to more rural areas. The roads lead to different neighbourhoods with houses of different economic classes. The houses you may see here are small 2-floor 2 bedroom houses, 1-floor 2 bedroom suburban houses, some 2-floor 4 bedroom small mansions and some others.


So far, only the main entrance to this downtown area has been built, with more details being added over time. The entrance displays two giant torches to mark the main commercial district. Here you may see boutiques, restaurants, some general stores, hair salons and lots of other services and commercial buildings

The road layouts for this map are oriented more towards racing, with dynamic elevation, sweeping turns and wider roads. Grid layouts are kept to a minimum.

Inspirations and ideas were taken from the maps of:

  • Need for Speed: Underground
  • Need for Speed: Underground 2
  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005)
  • Need for Speed: Carbon
  • Need for Speed: Undercover
