joachim-
yes the first 6 floor of steel section are inhabitable. levs156-162
if you look at my diagram, you can see how ive written LMR? this is where the lifts STOP.
the 3 x 160th mezz levels have machine rooms ect. up to tier18 or 624m, its an inhabitable building!
ABOVE this is the spire and pinnacle! or 100m of spire and 100m of pinnacle. give or take.
up to lev162 has lift access, electricity, plumbing,air cond ect. to make in habitable.

if you glance at deniss;s photo here.
note AFTER the 6th steel level the steel structure becomes very lightweight. empty ect.
thats because theres nothing on those floors ,just stair access to spire.

I'm curious, would floor 206 be at least accessible by a person?

Ah, that's crazy! Alright thank you. Man I bet that would be a trip to be in the top of the spire...

what really pisses me off is why the didn't put a multi floor observation deck way up near the top. like in the steel structure somewhere, 700m would be perfect and just have a small elevator going up there. it would be so great!!!

The spire has been lifted by some 10 meters at least, but it seams to be wrapped in some kind of cover.

Just notices on CUL's diagram that the steel is on the wrong side. because the steel has to go up another 3 levels on that side, and the diagram shows it as a tier end. no biggy but just pointing it out ^_^

Do you think it was lifted or did they add a piece on top ?

The diagram is accurate.

Tier 22 has 2 wings. The wing with all 3 sections up faces the now disassembled tower crane #2. The other wing that has one section up faces tower crane #1.

----------------------------------------------------------

I felt a new thread for this project was necessarily because of the insane amount of non-stop drivel being posted in the previous one. The entire thread is filled with either people posting crap or people complaining about others posting crap and it's time for that to end.
Of course there has been a massive positive contribution as well, loads of renders, 1000s of photos, inside info and so on, I just think it's time to give this thread a fresh start.

We're going to need some new guidelines, otherwise we'll just end up with the same old drivel filled thread again so here they are:

1: When posting lots of photos at once you can have a few large photos in the same post but if you have a lot more the rest should be thumbnailed, not everyone has an ultra-fast connection. To do this you can go to http://imageshack.us and do it there. A model post can be found here
2: Quoting other people's pictures should not be done (unless there's a good reason for doing so). If you want to comment about someone's photos you can quote their text or just refer to the photo but don't repost it.
3: Reposting loads of old photos will not be allowed unless the photos are reposted for a good reason (ie, to explain something) or just happen to be insanely good (such as the night shot in this thread).
4: Please do not post trivial info that everybody already knows, or exists just a few pages back (ie, "I think the building will have about 160 floors", "when was the last update?", etc).
5: Please limit the amount of "great updates" type posts. If you want to make such a comment you can but make sure a lot of people haven't said similar things right before you.
6: Any post complaining about another member will be deleted, if you have problems with someone else PM the mods and we'll sort it out. This was a real problem in the previous thread and will NOT be tolerated this time.
7: If you post someone else's photo then please give a link where you got it from or else mention the creator's name.
8: When quoting multiple posts please combine them all into one post rather than creating lots of posts in a row.

There are probably some more I could list but can't think of them off the top of my head. They're more like guidelines anyway rather than black and white rules but you get the idea, ie, more quality vs quantity.
The best thing to do before you click the "submit reply" button is read back over your post and ask yourself, will people be interested in reading my post? If the answer is no then it might be better not to bother posting it.

If you look at CUL's diagram, the highest point of steel has an Tier End on it, when it should be the other side. or the Steel he has put on it should be on the right not the left.
