An unfolding city! Wow, I can understand Chris Colefax's citigen macro being
used for creating a 'flat' city-- but your cylindrical unfolding is really
amazing to see. Nice!

I downloaded that macro long ago, but still haven't gotten around to using or
experimenting with it, to see how it procedurally generates its elements...
thinking about how it might help my own 'city generator' scene-- which I still
haven't finished
:-(

I just replaced all calls to "box" with calls to a macro I created that 
builds a square chunk of a difference of two cylinders. Instead of 
vertical axis coordinates, you input the radii of the cylinders. Not 
complicated at all.
