Is it just me, or does this look a lot like the Imperial City?

The Ideal City - Fra Carnevale
The Ideal City - Fra Carnevale

I looked around and couldn't find any other mentions of this, and I haven't played the game in a long time, so I don't actually know how similar it is. It just looks like it's looking into one of the rounded sections.

Nah, not really. Oblivion's Imperial City was full of high walls and towers, nothing quite that flat and wide open.

I don't know about you guys, buy I can't wait for the game that recreates a big city in its entirety, where you can enter every building and every room, and they'll be unique according to their architecture, and there'll be more than 2 or 3 unique stores in the game. I know it'll probably never be possible, but it's one thing I've always wanted in a game.

It's possible, just a LOT of work and it'd probably end up being about as stable as an elder scrolls game.

If you are talking about population density, Oblivion is EXACTLY like this painting.

Yeah, you're probably right. I can dream, though.

There is also this really awesome thing called OUTSIDE, I did it once at it was pretty cool. Game play kinda sucked though.
