I've done diagrams of it myself, and it took a very long time for me to get it just right.

I've posted these before, but I saw the "comparison" shots on the last page and wanted to repost these. All renderings by StR on SSP, used with permission. These renderings are older, so they still have the radome-enclosed mast, as well as the prismatic glass base.

The antenna is so ugly. With the old antenna, 1WTC was perfectly flawless. I can't believe what they have done to it. Worst decision ever!

it wasn't really a decission. Shortage of money, so they had to scrap either the spire completely or change it up as they did

My 1WTC in minecraft, thought it was appropriate:









For some reason the photobucket images also seem to come out poorly.

That would be an awesome server if you added some interiors for the buildings. Just a few floors in each building would be great.

I will at some stage but the city extends a long way back and I am still busy fulling it up. Maybe later I will add some interior to key buildings like 1WTC. Still need to add windows and lights to some of the buildings

Why the hell can't I figure out to multi-quote?? But to the user (swidddle)who is bothered by ppl's using the word than when they mean then,,ETC: cent, sent ,,, weren't paying attention in 5th grade when homophone's were the subject.. But back to topic,, the previous page when they lifted piece (14)? I assume,, did they attach it or just lay it on the roof.. It doesn't look like it was attached..
