I 1000% agree with you, it is good they scrapped the cut of corners from the design

Btw, isn't the next jump taking them a bit too long to make? Iirc it is now several weeks since the last jump. I wonder what causes those delays

Oh, and I have a small pic update

Roof height used below!

[IMG]http://i43.************/a10cpj.jpg[/IMG]

1WTC = 340 meters or 1115 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 217 meters or 712 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet Important note: The height of 4WTC shown in the diagram is wrong, I draw it when it was thought that 4WTC already has steel for the first two setback floors! This was later shown to not be true but I already edited the drawing! The height that is stated here (below the diagram) is the right one!
1 57 = Approximately 153 meters or 502 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Everyone look at the statue of liberty harbor cam. Goldman sachs has really scaled down their lighting for once.

Fantastic visualization Otie! Did you also render the lower section with the entrance?


And thank you for sharing the images, Kanto!
