@ajosh821 I like how the Shanghai World Financial Center in your pic is illuminated fully and with the blue lights in front of it. PS: if only there was a forth and fifth building added on to the trio...a pentuplet

Yes. I honestly don't remember. I must have been away from SSC for a long time. The excavation site, now that I do remember a huge gaping round hole
