Peloso said:Nice tower, but UGH! This is all way too cramped up! How can this building possibly be valorized if you have the visual covered from virtually every direction? You could only see one perspective of it, and only provided you are on very particular spots. I wish they would pull the tower from its ghetto and move it to Moscow City 2, or three, or anywhere it can breath. Generally speaking, I understand everyone wants to be close to the Federation Tower and the river Moscow, but maybe if the city was more spread out it would look better. Hope they rethink the plot assignment plan...
Well, as for Shanghai, as somebody already pointed out in the SWFC forum, there's lots of space between towers in Pudong. Speaking of Hong Kong and NY, maybe there's (there was) less choice than in Moscow as for the available places to put supertalls. Anyway I didn't mean the Mercury tower should have been placed FAR away from the other ones, I was just wondering if its peculiar shape wouldn't be better valorized if its side perspectives were free from obstructions (remember it's sided by a HUGE and blocky one). But nonetheless, I'm sure the district, in the end, will look great. Every planned building is, in its own way, a masterpiece.AcesHigh said:oh come on!!!! Arent buildings in Hong Kong, Shanghai and New York valorized??? And doesnt those cities have the best skylines???
What do you preffer, these three cities or Taiwan, with a 500 meters tower in the middle of nowhere, just like you wanted this Russian tower??
A tall tower must help compose a skyline, and this is what will happen in Moscow with all these huge towers close to each other!
This HUGE one is the city hall. The other one (at the opposite side ) is the tallest tower so far (Federation ). The Mercury tower reminds me a banner. If it is illuminated with 3 colores it will definitely look like a Russian flag. In this case this is a good place for it - between the Moscow city hall and the highest tower Federation.Peloso said:I was just wondering if its peculiar shape wouldn't be better valorized if its side perspectives were free from obstructions (remember it's sided by a HUGE and blocky one).
