Haarlem in 1750 (WIP)

I’m reconstructing the city of Haarlem, the way it was in the year 1750, in Unreal Engine. The idea is to have a 5km by 5km area around Haarlem that will be fully reconstructed and explorable in VR.
On this page I will post updates on the progress.

Setting up my workflow for modeling the buildings and generating LODs.

I’m currently researching the city archive and cadastre and mapping all the information onto a map in Google Earth. Old drawings of buildings that are long gone, locations of buildings that still exist, stories written by people from the time period, everything I can find that somehow describes the city and it’s surroundings will be mapped for reference. Because of Covid I’m a bit limited in doing my research as I can only make use of online resources.
