What can be achieved...

This tutorial doesn't show you how all cityscapes should be done, but this is the way that I do it.
It's quite easy and efficient, but takes some time. The picture above pretty much shows you what can be achieved.

Enjoy :)

Nice Tut, thanks! But ONE QUESTION... why do you need to place extra lights? Why not let VUE calculate the bounced light by checking 'global radiosity' in the atmosphere dialogue? It can even get a great sun-rays thru the dust effect for you. Chipp's got a tut on radiosity settings here:
