It's great high. However, they should add 3m to this building.

I originaly cut most of the information below the buildings out because I wanted to include Burj Khalifa 'til the top within one screenshot. However, I should have noticed this so it was my mistake, I am responsible for it and therefore I would like to deeply apologize.

Thank you for your time

This is probably not your fault, Kanto, But this tower has a diamond on top of it, and it tapers quite a lot. I don't mean to be rude or anything, I'm just saying.

Actually I am very grateful for feedback. Thank you, it allows me to improve my diagrams. I made the silhouette of the building according to its SSP drawing and that is how the original drawing looked like. Drawings of u/c or proposed skyscrapers on SSP often depict an older design, which is probably the case in here as well. Problem is I'm most probably not good enough to make a drawing from scratch so I guess we'll need to wait until CNTower uploads his drawing to SSP

Btw, his drawing of the building looks awesome

the diagram on SSP for this building still does feature the old design. i think someone posted a new diagram here already and i hope they will upload it to the SSP database aswell, because then we will finally have the real diagram. however the size is very comparable, so it is not that bad to only have the old design to compare for now.

Did you really need to upload that quality image? I appreciate the contribution but you don't need to grab every single image off GLM, just the high quality ones.

You're welcome. But anyway, your diagrams are GREAT. They allow me to track progress of all these buildings on the go. But I would like to ask a question:

Why did you include completed buildings? If you only have 2 or 3 buildings of different heights- let's say the Empire State Building, Taipei 101, and the Burj Khalifa- you would still be able to compare buildings while adding more buildings under construction.

And also, what order do you put the buildings in?

That is my bad, I have been very busy, but I assure you I will try uploading it to the database today.

Really?? It's Kanto ---- ------? Crusader...

The answer is:

Rooftop Crusader..So he goes by roof height..

Ok. No problem. Just updates even in GLM are so rare.
I don't know why, but this building is "my disease".

If that's the case, Ping An is taller than Shanghai Tower in roof height.

Let us "not" bring up that discussion!

Anyways when I uploaded the diagram to Skyscraperpage yesterday, it lost some quality, so it may not look better than the previous version, but it is still much more accurate, maybe when i have some more time, I'll just redo the diagram just to have it in the same scale as SSP drawings.

Back on topic. Is this building's construction slower than other buildings? If so, why?

yes i saw that too, a lot of illustrators have problems converting their buildings to the size without quality loss, i think there is a tutorial or at least helpful thread for that matter on the SSP forums, but i am not sure about that. anyways it is a really really good drawing and i hope it will be approved by the admins soon (i am just an editor, which means i can change building data, but not approve drawings)

There's a thread for that? I feel like there's a thread for everything.

But again, back on topic. Is the construction slower than other buildings?
