Greetings, everyone! I'm darthsentinel, former owner of the "Official MCForge Server", and current owner of "0.o Your Mom Is A Sideways Elephant (flatgrass)". Today, I'm here to show off my most recent build. Along with one of the co-owners, Tobycat, and help from countless others, through over 100 hours of building, work is almost done on the greatest thing I've ever worked on; a 9/11 memorial in the form of a full scale, as close to accurate as possible recreation of the original World Trade Center. And here it is :D

But seriously now, that's the miniature. Here's the full version.

And that's just the exterior. Here's an overview of the underground mall

More shots showcasing specific parts of the plaza to come soon. If you have any requests, please tell me! And constructive criticism is more than welcome :D

Wow that looks really nice, good job! You should try making the new memorials too. Pretty simple, but they would be cool to see.

Thanks for all the kind comments :D In response to requests for a download link, I won't be giving a download link at this time due to plagiarism concerns, and the fact that I wouldn't feel right without consent from the people helping me. Additionally, this is still a work in progress. At this time we're working underground on the subway and PATH station, and filling in the foundations of the towers. Also, interiors have yet to be added to the towers. The only thing that's really in atm are 276 elevators in the main buildings and 440 flights of stairs.

I was impressed by the miniature... the 1:1 model blows it out of the lava.

Hi, this is tobycat, and I have had tons of fun working on this project. I really appreciate the nice comments, and no we will not be putting planes in the map. So don't ask "Where are the planes?" or else!!!

The mall is now complete and in place below the plaza of the Trade Center! Pictures of the individual stores may come soon (there are about 50, so I'm hesitant to post so many pictures xD). For the moment, though, there's some other work going on- The foundations of Towers 1, 2 and 3 have been completed, and a large area has been cleared to accommodate the upcoming PATH station and IRT Subway system :D

Hello, everyone! Long time no update! Allot of progress has been made over the past week, and I thought I'd share some of it with everyone. The Marriott Hotel is 99% complete! And oh look! The landscaping is finished too!
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Below, you can see the temporary seating we've installed in front of the stage, and the historically accurate banners we've added!
Posted Image

This next shot is taken at street level and shows off some displays for the mall and landscaping.
Posted Image

In these next two pictures, you'll see our makeshift south bridge, and accurate entrance to the Marriott Hotel.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Here's the Marriott's lobby. Still a WIP, but coming along nicely :D
Posted Image

We've also managed to stock the hotel with a good amount of rooms(I haven't counted, but I'm guessing about 150 :3) Yes, the ceiling's low, but that's minecraft's fault, nothing I can do about that one :P
Posted Image

The foundations have had to be redone to make room for the Five Basements (only two of which are in so far)
Posted Image

The next four photos are of our makeshift Subway and PATH station. They appear in this order; Entrance from the mall, Subway, PATH Terminal 1, and PATH terminal 2.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

I also thought I'd give updated shots of the lobby, showing the hanging world flags and window banners.
Posted Image
Posted Image

To wrap up, two overhead shots of the Plaza and Street area.

Posted Image

I hope you've enjoyed the update! If you have any ideas for the project or notice any errors that need to be fixed, please let us know. As always, constructive criticism is a welcome thing!
