This was probably explained a while ago, but why has the circle hole at the top evolved into a rectangle? I kinda liked the circle...

Yeah I just read that in the Chinese subforum, people were angry. I don't blame 'em.

It would've been neat if the circle could have alligned with the sun to shine right through it.

Hey, James, that picture was taken by me, not Semil. The ones of the Jasper tower were as well. Just thought I'd let you know.

Thanks 4 the compliment. But i feel to last it forever, its quite overaggravated to say that. Buildings now are getting more fashionable like cars today, and keep changing. Hope i dont ruin yr mind. Enjoy the updates.
