But anyways, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.
Next up: Final tweaks and additions to WTC Interior, then make the WTC Plaza. Then, WTC3 and 7. I'll upload the save tomorrow after finishing the tweaks and maybe a preliminary plaza

Update 10: I've started on the WTC Plaza. It is going to be iron based because it looks most like Marble.
Here's my hand at making 'The Sphere' that was the landmark of the WTC plaza and the fountain
The Windows on the World and the elevator.
From The Top of the World on WTC2
Thanks for the encouraging feedback everyone

Are you going to add benches and stuff too? Maybe a small memorial to what happened that day?

Anyways, sorry for the delay in updates. I've been busy with school and my computer's been going through mood swings. Here's update 11 now. I've made the plaza nicer and have added the stone foundations for what will be WTC3!
I will upload the save at the end of tomorrow. Since tomorrow's a weekend I'll finish WTC3 too probably by that time

I'm sorry about the delay. Yes, I'm still working on this but I had an intense amount of work to do in the last week and I was unable to do any work on this project during that time. The good news is that WTC3 is done . The bad news is that it's not that great and there will definitely be a better version in the near future. The better news is that I've now uploaded the save so that everyone can see and use it!

I really did forget how huge the Twin Towers were. This has brought back some great memories and has made me remember how huge and majestic they were. Thanks for that.
They are very accurate and I love it! Here's my breakup (mind you this is from only 5-ish minutes of looking around)
-The plaza. It's great and I love 'the sphere'. Great job done on that .
-Great lobby, but is there a way to get to the 2nd floor of the concourse? (Ladders, perhaps?)
-The water elevators! Great job! It works extremely well!
-Windows on the world looks great as does the observation deck
A few things to improve on:
-The plaza, maybe could use some chairs and trees?
-The WTC3 is good but as you said it can be improved. Great start though!
-Night lighting? Maybe look at making some floors with torches on the side to look a bit nicer at night?
Anyway, who am I to complain...they are amazing and easily the best rendition of the Twin Towers on minecraft right now. Maybe in the next updates refine it and start on WTCs 5,6, and 7? And then the whole of manhatten?

And yes, I'm planning to improve on the plaza and WTC3 over the next few updates. The night lighting will be improved too but that might take some time :\.
As for WTCs 4,5 and 6. WTC7 is going to be first. Then WTCs 4,5,6. I was never planning to do those but the project is going along at an amazing pace. i might even do the Mall too!
And no full Manhattan. Sorry

I just woke up and checked on it for a while, and it looks really good. Just a bump so others can see it.
As you can see I check on this thread every day
