EmperorBOSS
Level 34 : Artisan Fish

UPDATE: 12/08/2017
I am back again with a new update. To everyone anticipating the New Year's Day 2018 release, please remain hopeful but not certain. I am trying to get permission to publicly release a modified version of the FancyCraft resource pack from the owner. If he replies within the month granting me permission, I will be able to complete this new update in time. But if not, then I cannot release this map until I am absolutely sure that I can release the pack. I'm sorry if this upsets you in any way, but I'd rather not have this project removed from PMC due to broken rules.

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.

Christmas/1.8 Update : 12/25/2015 8:37:28 am12/25/15

FancyCraft is now a 1.8 resource pack, so the entire map was updated to include 1.8's newest features. In addition, the whole plaza is ready for the holiday season, so adding a little snow, the signature "PEACE ON EARTH" sign, and a gigantic Christmas tree turned the grand office complex into a winter wonderland for everyone!

Well, because of the height limit, I had to split the bottom half from the top half. I put the top half of the towers east of the main complex area for easy access. You may also use buttons from the WTC lobby elevators to access the restaurant and observatory levels in the top half.

Trust me, I am scrambling to get this done by then. I will be away from Dec. 20 to Dec. 27. Also I need permission from the resource pack owner to see if I can publicly release a modified version of his resource pack, and he hasn't replied to me in almost two years. :/

1.8 and above. But since you subscribed (and thank you for doing so) I can give you a newer, WIP version of the map which is for 1.9 and above.
hey whats up dude i was wondering if you could send me your latest update on your map to me i would like to see how u created your side of the vista hotel i too am working on a map and its this one detail that im stuck on so if you are able to send me a copy that would be great :)
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 34
  • Artisan Fish
  • August 1, 2017, 3:24 pm
Please tell me what you're stuck on. I won't give you the download unless it's absolutely necessary as I am worried that someone will simply take my map and publish it as their own.
However, feel free to tell me what you're stuck on.
Also, thanks for subscribing! :)
Thats fine im basically stuck on wtc 3 side which is the side on liberty street and if you can go check out what u think of my project that would be great but yeah thats basically what im stuck on :)
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 34
  • Artisan Fish
  • August 2, 2017, 7:43 am
Okay, so basically, the side that faces Liberty Street, the south side, is pretty straightforward.
The corners are lined with white steel, as per the rest of the facade, and the windows continue down for most of the wall.
At the base of the building, there was a concrete bunker, and a black-tinted window that looked into a restaurant, Tall Ships.
If this didn't help, I can download your map and fix that part up for you.
I think the best would be for me to send you a copy of my hotel so u can edit it and i could use mcedit to implement it thank you i appreciate it.

Thanks

BTW: will this have the antenna and the mall?
I haven't worked on this project for two months--since March 9, my computer has been under repairs and should get back to me by next week.
What you've seen is the last I've worked on this project.

I feel the same way, and that's why I felt a replica/recreation would act as a proper tribute to the two towers that defined the American Dream.

I've been getting this question a lot lately...I would gladly send it to you, but the computer which has the latest version is under repair in an attempt to restore the data after the hard drive went bad. As soon as it gets fixed (hopefully it will) I will send you and everyone else who wants the latest version a download link.
Will it have a completed mall?

And perhaps a 2nd version in the immediate aftermath of the attacks (ground zero)?

Nexus-whats-his-face who did that solid Minecraft 9/11 video said he posted it, but never did.

I'd be keen on exploring the ruins, etc.

I've actually done some almost unnervingly accurate replicas of The Station Nightclub where the infamous 2003 fire occurred.

So, yeah.

I use forge mods. Makes building easier.

Is this 1.8 or can the newest version be used with 1.7.10, the last truly moddable version?
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 34
  • Artisan Fish
  • April 27, 2017, 1:27 pm
The World Trade Center will have a full shopping center connecting to World Trade Centers 1 and 2, the main entrance being below World Trade Center 4. I will furnish all the shops with their respective furniture.
Building the rubble of Ground Zero is completely randomized and I need to take the original complex in order to build it. Thus, I will not be doing this. However, I could ask NexusWarrior about this.
The map posted on here is compatible with 1.7.10+, and the map I'm currently working on is 1.9+.
I don't know what you mean about the "moddability" of newer versions of Minecraft--Forge works for me in 1.10.
1.8 changed a lot of things, so mods just always seem unstable or incomplete for me.

It's probably my craptacular computer.
I had a pretty bad computer until November 2015...I suggest getting a powerful gaming laptop on Black Friday :p
Heyo can I please have the newest version of the map? Really good job on what you have so far! :D

Hey, will you be building a separate top part of both towers (antenna on the north, observatory on the south) on the other side of the world? If so, could you please provide coordinates? Obviously, with the height of the towers, they would have to be higher than the 256 limit. BTW: How's the mall going?
  • EmperorBOSS
  • Level 34
  • Artisan Fish
  • February 22, 2017, 5:15 am
I've already built the upper half of the towers, and you don't need coordinates to find them because in the newer version of the map (which I can send to you via PMC, it is a WIP), it is just east (south in Minecraft) of the plaza entrance. The mall was built incorrectly; I have to restart the mall and that is why there is no new release yet.
  • mrmuckles
  • Level 1
  • New Miner
  • February 22, 2017, 4:11 pm
Could you please send me the PMC with the separate half? Thanks.

This might be helpful for building the mall:

I actually liked what you did with the lobby! It seemed as if you created a futuristic version of the Twin Towers, almost like how they would look like on the inside had they existed today. I admire you for that.
