[Scenery]Chicago Air & Water Show

Chicago, officially the City of Chicago, is the third-most populous city in the United States. With over 2.7 million residents, it is also the most populous city in both the state of Illinois and the Midwestern United States. It is the county seat of Cook County. The Chicago metropolitan area, often referred to as Chicagoland, has nearly 10 million people and is the third-largest in the U.S. Chicago has often been called a global architecture capital. Chicago is considered one of the most important business centers in the world. This is not a copy and paste from Wikipedia.

-

All ground objects were created by me through Blender and Gepolyo. The estimated time spent on this project was about 3 months cumulative. All buildings are their correct dimensions (or at least as close as possible).

-

This map is the annual Chicago Air & Water Show version with Gary International Airport (GYY) approximately 22.1 miles away. 95% of the buildings are original and in their correct spot. The other 5% are simply “fill-in” buildings so there aren’t any awkward open areas (*hint: look inside the Willis Tower*). Also, O'Hare and Midway are also in the map, but only the outline. The only thing is that this map is mainly for the air show so I didn't bother putting detail into those airports. Finally, everywhere is landable, so if you parachute you can land on the beach.

-

The only required ground object pack is my ABGround 2.0 pack. The ground objects in this pack are all included in the file.

I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Chicago represent! This may get me to dust off my YS install this weekend. I'll have to check this map out and see if I can find my house...
I make this website.

Love this map. Literally the only map I am using. So many cool buildings. One request, could you make a start point on the ground like in the middle of the city? I would like to take one of my cars and drive it around. Thanks in advance.

Considering this thread is over three years old, it'd do you some good to learn how to do it yourself.

There are plenty of fantastic guides in the Addon Creation section.
