^3D Studio Max 2011. What makes it so real, I believe, is the effort put into accuracy.

These are all the planning lines I need to start working on Tower 4. Actually, I'll need quite a few more than these, but it's a start.


EDIT: Hard part's done. Just have to throw on the facade and a few internal columns.

From Tower 1 (Note where the roof is in relation to the parapet.


Looking AT Tower 1, from the highest occupied floor in the NW corner prior to the setback.

Not WTC, but my other ongoing project.

^I'd use the word "excruciating" instead of "amazing" but your compliment is appreciated. I've got big changes coming in the next few weeks.

First, the towers won't stick out like sore thumbs like they do now. I found a steal of a deal on a textured 3D model of the entire island of Manhattan. Only downside is that this has pushed my 3 year old laptop (which I do all the work on), which was just at its limits with just the detail on the WTC, beyond its limits. So I ordered new RAM to hopefully allow me to handle the WTC, all the improvements I'm planning for it, and the whole borough at full resolution.

As for the Manhattan model, from what I can tell it's from the same source as what Google now uses in Google Earth. It's not 100% friendly with 3DS Max, but I think I can optimize it enough to work alright. Right now, I've got all the textures (the images that cover the sides of the building's 3D mesh to give it detail) at 50% scale, so when things get up and running they'll look less blurry than they do now. I'm also not using any of the ground textures, which are REALLY hi-res (one 4x4 block area is 4096x4096 pixels), but will when I think my comp can handle it. So keep in mind that everything will eventually look like this:


This knocks off a lot from my to-do list. So, I'm down to updating 3WTC (which will be next), the Memorial exterior, and the PATH hub and I'll be done for now. I'd have liked to do the underground areas, but there simply isn't enough information out there at this time.

From ESB (Test render of new background model)


Dusk


Winter-ish effect


Infinity


Dawn


Low noon in winter.


The water is screwed up, the ground is blank, it will all be gone in a week. Still, F#####g awesome if you ask me.

Wow. My friend asked me what the WTC is going to look like, and I found this thread and his jaw dropped, and jokingly asked if theyd finished the entire thing already and these are actual photos. The detail is incredible, or if you wish excruciating lol. Serious amounts of respect and thanks for doing this so we can all enjoy them. Just amazing.
