    I do have a map of the concourse level dated sometime near 2001. It's insanely detailed. Here's a crop of 6WTC
    anychance of the whole map please?

    <SNIP AWESOME DIAGRAM>
    I have been watching your progress for some time STR and quite frankly it is looking awesome. I have been dabbling with 3D real time game engines but the level of detail you have is brilliant. Where do you get the reference information? I've searched the net for years and have never seen plans of the concourse etc. Thanks so much for sharing that diagram above, I could have really done with this 6 months ago.

    I lack any photos of the sky lobbies and lift entrances in foyer. If you could point me in the right direction I would very much appreciate it.

    If you are interested my current build (CS_NorthTower) is out public now for Counter Strike Source. http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/...ower_Map;71297

    I could post some images here, but I won't, this is your tribute and I don't want to be treading on any toes.

    Can't wait to see your next renders, all the best

    First, an interesting comparison. Everyone remarks at the similarities between Chicago's Aon Center, and the late Twin Towers. While stylisticly similar, they are quite different. First, each of the New York landmarks were significantly larger than the Chicago one. Second, Aon has standard 5 foor wide windows, The Trade Center of course had its famed 20-inch wide panes.

    These will be the last renders of the original Twin Tower models. All subsequent shots will be of the new versions, which will have some elements of the earlier attempt (like the core).



    Here's the new model. I'm still working out the kinks in the material on the outside, but this is basically it. The lobby arches will look markedly superior to the original version, but are not done yet. The interior shots are from the 107th floor observation deck in Tower 2, while the second shot is from the 78th floor skylobby. The reflective part in that shot is the express elevator doors, while in front of them lies the local elevator lobby that served the 77th to roughly the 85th floor.

    In case you're wondering why I'd completely replace 6WTC, just compare the last shot to the old version.

    Wow ... incredible as usual, STR

    Can we expect to see stacks of colored t-shirts on the GAP shelves sometime in the future?

    That would require a new computer. I'm having to redo all the buildings (as they weren't a very efficient use of triangles) just to give me the budget to complete the concourse.

    Perhaps some day.

    Man, STR, you really rock at making this model!!

    Could I see some interior shots of WTC7 please? That's pretty much the one we've seen least of.

    I don't have any interior shots of Tower 7 or the hotel.

    Well then could you show us some pictures of Tower 7 in general? I'm really curious as to how you went with building 7.
