@Arzonz
There will be hundreds .. maybe a thousand jumps.
Do you really have to make a GIF of every single one?!

To get the news of a jump happening faster, Yes. since the parts don't jump at once. they might have hours or even a day of deference. (talking about the end of the wings)


Also, i know this is not the place to post this but:
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid approves new tower for Dubai Creek
Emaar Properties has unveiled designs for a new observation tower to be built in the Dubai Creek area of the city.

The tower’s design was approved by Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammed reviewed proposals by six consultancy companies, before approving the selection of a design by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

The winning design, which provides a modern twist on Islamic architecture, was described by Sheikh Mohammed as an “architectural wonder that will be as great as Burj Khalifa and the Eiffel Tower”, according to the state news agency Wam.

The height of the tower has not been specified but in drawings provided by Emaar it looms high over neighbouring towers.

Emaar said a name for the tower has not yet been chosen.

The Emaar Properties chairman Mohamed Al Abbar thanked Sheikh Mohammed for his continued support and confidence in Emaar’s projects.

He said the new tower would prove to be a cultural and tourist icon, adding that construction would begin within the next few months.

In early trading on Sunday, Emaar shares were up 2.2 per cent.

The tower is to be linked to a central island district within the Dubai Creek Harbour district, which is being jointly developed by Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding. It is to have a number of residential and commercial buildings set around a 4.5km creek boardwalk offering retail, dining and entertainment units.

Mr Calatrava has designed projects including the World Trade Centre Transportation Hub in New York, the Chicago Spire Tower, and the Olympic Sports Complex in Athens.

This really might be taller than KT since the renders look really tall.

Keep up the good work, you add a lot to this forum.
Thank you that's nice of you ..

and for your request i will do it in the next updates

Right... This will be impressive, but just big sharp 1.5 km tube, not a building. For me its better the JT with its concrete spire than this.

If this tower does indeed get built It will only take 1-2 years because there is less concrete than in normal buildings.

This century will give us towers that will be dozens of times lighter than concrete, constructed with almost ZERO materials supply.

Not jealous of anything happening in a country that beheads people for speaking freely.

As for the comment someone made about Middle East heading in to a recession/depression - They are already in one, along with the rest of the world. That is why oil is drastically dropping in price, the demand for the current supply is not there.
