    I'm confused. Is it floating just above the atmosphere or.. ? As far as I know, there is no solid ground on a gas giant and light can't penetrate the thick atmosphere. Maybe I'm just too picky.

    I didn't specify What gas, or that it was a Gas Giant.. though it certainly Could be

    since when does a city have to be on the ground?

    how to build a city on the gas [planet is kinda the point
    I can think of at least a dozen solutions to the problem...
    there's no breathable atmosphere either....

    HAVE FUN!

    OH, I will be watching this one. Alas, I cannot particpate yet, as I'm still finishing a final project that's due this week. I might try though, if I finish early enough. If not...I'll have to live vicariously.

    This looks like a lot of fun though.

    Hmmm perhaps something like this, a sort of a ring-shaped city around a Neptune-like ice giant.

    First try at this, the idea behind mine is basicly a planet emitting fumes of a very hot gas, these fumetrails start all over the planet and go hundreds of kilometers above the atmoshpere. Between these dangerous gas trails future humans have started a colony to harvest this gas. Harvester ships, details of the atmosphere, more stations, service depots and all the other stuff are yet to be added.

    @Wixxi, I think you need to tilt your city to the left. "Vertical" lines should be perpendicular to the planet's horizon.

    Hey wixxi, I like it. It looks really good. It really looks like its floating above the planet except where these two lines moving towards the upper left, end right at the edge of the planet. That part is really flat.

    I want to go there and hang out.

    Cool idea Wixxi, only thing I see missing here is something that represents the scale of this thing, you know, something familiar.
    Maybe a line of car-sized space crafts approaching the station, or maybe structure in the foreground that contains something of human size. Anyway, keep it going

    Been a while since i did an EOW, its been weird slipping back in.

    First is a bit of a colour/mood test, second is where i'm at atm. Did have a big concept behind this involving gas filters and gyroscopes, but worrying about how that would look was messing with my composition.

    ALH: nice starting approach... liking your use of color to denote value.. don't worry about actually "showing" us the big concept, you can just allude to it's presence.. what you have so far in the second pic is worth pursuing, IMO

    Very nice works i see here (too!)

    Some of the above are inspiring

    When i first saw the "gas city" i thought immediatelly a "gas hell" , but when i saw the "capital gas city" i thought that maybe it shouldnt be as "hell" enviroment i imagined at first so..

    well just a quick sketch.

    I know it lacks many things, please be rough , its my first entry on EoW :p
    (and i hope not the final )

    Its just an idea, maybe i change my mind later^_^

    hmmm....

    Nice work everyone!
    Here's a work in progress of my attempt. Balloon city with its balloon neighbourhoods/sub-units. Filled with gas lighter than the gas of the planet they should float... maybe.
