--UPDATE 4 MAY, 2011---
And, here's a few screenshots showing the Twin Towers, looking pretty good with smooth lighting :biggrin.gif:. Phase 2's going pretty well, and I'm almost done with the block around the twin towers. Also, I slightly updated the WTC itself by lighting up the smaller buildings and changing the floor of the lobby to red/blue 'carpet'

Framed by the World Financial center, the twin towers look better thanks to smooth lighting. The sky lobby 'bands' on the 42nd/76th floor really stand out now.
So I actually thought of this in my sleep time but never wondered if anyone had already made a steady project of making the whole island so it's a good surprise to see I'm not the only one up on this idea.
Now I'll take a look at your scraps and perhaps I'll offer my help if you require it.
Private Mod Note
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
I used to mine stones now I'm up in my diamond home sipping shroom juice for breakfast.
I'll probably never officially finish it, and I'm still wondering whether I should omit some streets which hold no significance (like they're only rundown houses or something, no interesting buildings), or whether I should be completely accurate.
I'm releasing Phase 1 of Manhattan! My previous WTC upload had over 250 downloads, this one is MUCH better and includes Battery Park and the World Financial center and an updated WTC complex!
PLEASE NOTE:I am NOT responsible for any damage that happen to your minecraft by installing this Mod. ALL support for the elevators will happen in Ethereal's Forum Topic, not mine. There are two saves, just like my last upload. The first one includes Ethereal's elevator mod, that will need to be installed first before installing my save. For installation instructions for the elevator mod please go to Ethereal's forum topic located above. Then, overwrite any save with my save. The other save includes plain water elevators. In that, you won't be able to access the sky lobbies of the twin towers or the roof of WTC7. For that, just overwrite any save. No mods are needed
NOTE: DON'T go in the water UNLESS you want to risk falling into an abbys. Note that you have unlimited health so you won't respawn, so you'll need to use MCEdit or something to move yourself! It's only for show!
