UPDATE: 5/01/2018
At last, the update you guys have been waiting for is here. Some of the major changes in this update include: 7 World Trade Center lobby and revampment, 4, 5, and 6 World Trade Center lobby and facade remodel, renovation for observation deck and Windows on the World, The Mall at the World Trade Center inclusion (though a portion is cut off due to street level complications, I will try to fix this by the next update), Marriott World Trade Center interiors, plaza refurbishment w/ creative planters, kiosks, outdoor dining, and nightlife stage entertainment, and most importantly, the split of the Twin Towers into two, so now it is at a full 1:1 scale.
Hopefully you won't hate me anymore :) (Also, I don't know if this is allowed, I'll have to double check, but if it is, I'm willing to DM the resource pack to people since without it the map will look pretty bad.)

DISCLAIMER:
I would like to give my deepest condolences to 9/11 victims and their families, and congratulate 9/11 survivors for doing the impossible. However, I want to stress that I do not want to see any disrespectful comments or 9/11 jokes. That's just plain wrong. But back to reality, I am dedicating this to victims/families/survivors as a memorial, and any shown disrespect will be immediately reported.

15 years ago, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center dominated the New York skyline. But little did the people who they sheltered know, their home away from home would be gone soon. The once lavish and grand skyscrapers rising a quarter-mile high would be reduced to a dilapidated pile of rubble and ash, following the worst terrorist attacks this country has ever encountered. Thankfully, the Twin Towers, along with the rest of the WTC site, rose from the rubble into the completely new dimension of Minecraft.


This map includes all the buildings of the WTC complex, including:


1 and 2 World Trade Center (Twin Towers, then tallest buildings in New York)
3 World Trade Center (Marriott Hotel)
4, 5, and 6 World Trade Center (Office Buildings)
7 World Trade Center (New York Command Center, Solomon Brothers Bldg.)
Austin J. Tobin Plaza (Central World Trade Center Plaza, including The Sphere)
Surrounding Streets



Completing this project would offer the public a view of the totality of the above-ground portion of the World Trade Center complex. Of course, the centerpiece Twin Towers, unmistakable in their minimalist form, are detailed and furnished to perfection. The cavernous marble lobbies, narrow sky lobbies, open-spaced office floors, the famous observation deck, and the fine dining Windows on the World restaurant complex are all interior features included in the completed model. A generally accurate core is also represented. In addition to the Twin Towers, the opulent 5-star Marriott hotel, fully furnished with luxury decor, is included in this model. Buildings 4, 5, and 6 are also included here; each with their own lobbies and concourse. The WTC path station, albeit underground, will be included via teleportation (that is my only option at this point). World Trade Center 7, alongside its complex, multi-tiered lobby, is also well-represented in this model. In addition, the replica showcases the spacious, 4-acre promenade at the center of the complex, the courtyard just outside of WTC 7, the pedestrian bridge connecting WTC 7 with the rest of the complex, the massive concourse shopping center (then New York's largest mall), and famous artworks featured throughout the original complex, such as Fritz Koenig's The Sphere, and World Trade Center Tapestry by Joan Miro. In the far future, I intend to add the World Financial Center/Brookfield Place to this map. Unfortunately, due to my unwillingness to do so, the streets of the complex won't be accurately recreated, so feel free to let me know if you want to do this because I am more than thankful if you do so.


RESOURCE PACK:
FancyCraft 128x 1.8 (Finally!) 1.8 FancyCraft Resource Pack 128x (use v2, not v3 - the iron blocks look terrible in v3, which make the white chamfered corners of the Twin Towers)



SHADERS: SEUS 10.1 Ultra / Continuum Shader 1.0 Cinematic / RRe 36's Shaders v7 Ultra

RIP to all 2,977 people who died in the worst tragedy in American history.

Hi! I love your World Trade Center maps! They really look like the actual thing.

I do have a question, though. The two World Trade Center maps of yours, the old and new, inspired me to build my own, but here's the question:
Am I allowed to use your designs in my project? It is not planned to be made available to the public and will only be seen in videos and pictures. On top of that, I will give credit to your designs.

First off, thanks for the support!

You can use anything you'd like from my map(s), but proper credit is due. So...you cannot present, release or redistribute the map by claiming it as your own or failing to mention me.
Basically, just type "EmperorBOSS" somewhere in your description and you should be fine :P
Okay. Just had to double check first before I did anything else. Credit will be given.

Well...I'll try. If you wanna build my build, you could try my tutorial! As of now, it only has 1 part, which was uploaded over a year ago...I'm not sure when I could get around to making more parts for it, but I'll try to do so. Soon.
I love how detailed and expansive your build feels. I will admit I took some notes for my own build of the WTC. If you can I'd love the custom texture pack.

One thing though, Your placement of Windows on the World and the Observation deck are a bit off. The section you placed them in were utility floors for ventilation and the hat truss, among other uses. The floors that you made with cobblestone pillars right below that section were the actual 107th floors.

Sorry to bother you if you already knew that, just wanted to make sure. Still, extremely impressive and thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for...well uh loving my build! I kinda already knew about the WOTW and Observation Deck thing, but I'm impressed that you noted it. I didn't add it in its actual floor for three reasons:
1. The windows wouldn't have looked great, especially since I couldn't add the proper color of the interior columns for the sake of exterior accuracy.
2. I wanted to be able to create a good-looking, grand space (with the same feel of the orginal) with such low ceilings (Minecraft's fault, not mine)
3. I had already made them in the wrong floors and I was too lazy to transfer them, lol.

Also check your DM's for a resource pack copy!
im on ubuntu
and i cant download it

Hi! Unfortunately, this map is made for Windows and Mac OS, so I'm sorry :/
I'll try to find a way to get it to work on Ubuntu, though.

The the distance between the original twin towers was 140 feet or about 43 meters. And since this is build is 1:1 scale, you are slightly off because the distance between your Twin Towers is around 36 blocks.
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • November 28, 2018, 6:46 pm
Apologies for this mistake. But to be honest, visually speaking, the distance of 43 meters would've looked unrealistic and "off" simply because of its rendition in MC.

I'm honest, when your working on that World Financial Center to make up a ton for the Financial District. The WFC has changed a lot.

This sentence hurts my brain.
How did you do the lobbies of 4,5, and 6 wtc? I tried to find pictures of them online but nothing comes up.
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • June 23, 2018, 2:55 pm
To be honest, the lobbies of 4 and 6 were created based on four resources: vague blueprints, pictures of the buildings’ entrances from inside (in the case of 6 WTC from the North Tower) and outside from the plaza, written information regarding what was located within the lobby levels, and the neutral/grey theme the WTC followed (incorporated into designing the lobbies). There actually is a really useful photo of 5 WTC’s lobby from SSC (SkyscraperCity)...I’ll try to find it and DM it to you.
May I ask what texture/shaders you're using, it looks amazing.
found them thanks!

The WTC should be 100% complete by the end of this year, but the map won’t be complete until I include the World Financial Center.
Well Well Well...
Welcome back World Trade Center.

Man, i'm impressed. This is just amazing.I love it. Will u be uploading a shematics? I would love to have this in a world.
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • May 5, 2018, 9:19 pm
Sorry, I don't upload schematics.
Plus, it's a 1:1 scale building, so the towers are sliced in half.
If you really really want it still, I'll see what I can do.

I'm honestly not sure myself, I can't put my whole life aside for this project lol.
But it'll probably be some time late this year.

Yay!!!
Took your time. Only 5 months late.
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • May 4, 2018, 3:57 pm
4 months***
But at least it came out. You thought this would never be released.
Also, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but if you are, then let me get this straight--you're mad that the map was released 4 months late instead of never? Please, just give me a chance. Check the map out for yourself and tell me what you think.
I'm not necessarily "mad", just frustrated because you don't care for your community. You could've messaged us the map and the resource pack about 2 months earlier if you had a brain stem.

And you could just stop complaining and start respecting the guy...
He put hours of work into this to get the build done. He wanted to get a quality build out instead of just one that was rapidly finished.




And if you're that unhappy, go build it yourself instead of complaining...

Looks amazing? Can you make a project of Manhattan which includes all buildings with interiors? it can include the WTC of today if you want
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • May 3, 2018, 8:08 am
Probably not, because the interiors for every single building in Manhattan would take quite a bit of time. Plus, how much interior do you want to see? Like, just lobbies or public areas, or are you talking about furnishings and decor throughout the entire building? I don’t think I could do that, but this WTC map is supposed to include the World Financial Center sometime in the future.
Anyways, glad you liked the map!
This is amazing, nice job EmperorBOSS you really captured the spirit of "A Work Of Crappy Modern Art" by Some Random Unkown Useless Guy, it's a beautiful American symbol, the map itself is okay too.

Did you get that texture pack permission or something?
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42
  • Master Architect
  • April 13, 2018, 3:40 pm
No, but once the map is released I am willing to DM or email people the resource pack (cause I think that's allowed?)
Currently, it is spring break, If he says he is "busy with school work", we all know that he's lying. I have his discord and email, so I can convince him to release it with the right tactics.
BlazeSlayer543 you do know the Earth is round and different parts of the Earth have different times. So it would be possible for you to be on spring break and someone else not.
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 42

  • April 10, 2018, 5:51 pm
So I don't quite see why you of all people would be triggered, especially if you've already leaked the download link to the map. But as I mentioned in the comment below, you have a WIP version and the full version is going to be released by the end of the month.
Go ahead with your "oh he's making false promises" comments, but you can do whatever you want to me if you don't have a full copy by May 1st.
Anyways, the map has already been leaked by me so we've beaten him.

I think that he accidentally deleted the map and now he is trying to hide this.
I actually have a copy of the map, so it couldn't have been deleted. But the map is awful, no interiors for any of the floors basically.
Also the buildings are split into 2 sections for some reason, and the top halves are like 500 blocks away from the main plaza.

Can you send it to me too. My email is [email protected]

Thank you so much I just checked the world it is authentic.
Time goes on by so fast.
Not really, waiting for this feels like billions of years. He's not even gonna release it anyway, believe me.
Still need to wait, OF COURSE its happening soon. I counter you this, he is still getting permission to get the texture pack use from the original owner who created it. Then BOSS will open up the updated link. Just don't go downfall already.
