Hi I am a civil engineer, and I tried to experiment on some real time visualizations with UE4. As you see the quality is much lower than the work of the game artists and it’s beacuse of my (low) experience, but I hope you like it! The model is done on sketchup, then imported to blender for lightmap and then exported in UE4. The trees are from a free program called Tree[d]. It’s kind of unfinihed project but it’s done for personal testing.
It could be nice if there was a direct sketchup exporter and an asset warehouse or something. I’m waiting for speedtree too.
I think that game engines have a great potential on architecture and construction, but is not yet achieved because the are mainly focused on the how video games are designed
