NOTE: This post shows pictures of my fake MINECRAFT World Trade Center. If you are sensitive about the subject, then please leave instead of b*tching about how unethical I am or something like that. I feel what I am doing is fine. The buildings existed for 30 years before that fateful day and they existed. Thus, I will build them.
UPDATE 19 is up!, SAVEGAME (11/12/2010) is below!UPDATED AS OF 20/12/2010
World Trade Center Complex:Complete
World Financial Center:Under Construction
Rest of Manhattan:Coming soon!
New update now. I have made some pretty big changes. First, I have 'elevated' the towers, by making the plaza higher than the rest of the ground just like what it was in the real thing! This has a few effects, first, the mezzanine of the WTC lobbies goes to the plaza, while the concourse goes to the outside road towards the world financial centers. Secondly, I can model the Mall at the WTC and the concourse! Also, I have made another WFC tower, things are coming along greatly!
The stairs connecting the road to the plaza on WTC5. These were called the 'survivor's staircase'

The Mall/Concourse underneath the plaza.

The stairs leading from the Mezzanine to the Concourse area of the lobby.
The entrance from street level to 1WTC
The 2 world financial center buildings
The Twin Towers
I have finished the World Trade Center Complex
I am also have uploaded 2 versions of my save. One version supports Ethereal's elevator mod (My complex has about 30 elevators total), the other uses the plain old water elevators if you are not comfortable with installing mods. Please note that I am not responsible for any damage that happens to your game because you install the mod, and that all support should be posted in Etheral's thread, not mine
NOW, The 2 saves! This is the save WITH the elevator Mod. FIRST, please follow the instructions on how to install the mod on Etheral's thread. The link to the mod is there, you can download and run it after following the instructions.
Next, download my save from here and overwrite the preferred save. http://www.mediafire.com/?873qgocgt7152sk
This is the 2nd, REGULAR save that requires NO mods. Of course, you lose out on the elevators and the sky lobbies, but that's fine... Just overwrite on one of your saves and you're ready to go :smile.gif:http://www.mediafire.com/?393zgb72ysn1b9s
Here is a picture of WTC7, based on the new one rather than the old one.
And ya know, I think I'm gonna start building Manhattan at this rate. First the World Financial Center, and then I'll spread from there
Oh, and here's a picture of the new WTC top and the Top of the world observation deck
Things are going great. Every in-game 24 hours I'm able to get 5-6 floors done, meaning I'll finish in around a month in-game or 1500 hours realtime
Right now it looks quite bland because it's blending into the background. Also I might re-texture the stone to make it a bit lighter. Also if you notice the gold, that will be the ceiling of the lobby.
Thanks for the warm reception to this :smile.gif:. I was expecting worse...a lot worse.
Just put some rubble on the ground and you're done.
That was on 9/11. I'm building it like it was before that.
*sigh*. it's sad that people only remember it as a pile of rubble. For 30 years they were the tallest buildings in New York. They were unique because there were 2 of them. in 2 hours it was all gone, and people forget that they stood.
Remember the 2 hours but remember the 30 years before that too.
I just got one whole side 11 floors higher in 5 minutes. Great progression! Nice fog effect too :smile.gif:. I'm about halfway up the hole already, I think I'll finish the tower by this wednesday time permitting
Hopefully Notch might think of making half-blocks that are half the width of the current ones. These don't capture the WTC's windows correctly. They look too big.
