The World Trade Center [WiP]

Gm_WorldTradeCenter_2001 [WiP]


What is it?


Gm_WorldTradeCenter_2001 is a complete 1:1 reconstruction of the World Trade Center (in Garry’s Mod) in the month preceding its destruction. Around the complex are other real buildings, complexes and churches from New York.

There is also a 1:1 3D skybox of Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs of New York City. Although not completely done, I plan to add most notable buildings in Manhattan and some buildings from surrounding areas and boroughs, to give a realistic and immersive view from the rooftop observation deck of the South Tower (the tall tower with no antenna).

And just to give a sense of scale:

I will post new developments (along with screenshots!) of this project into this thread until it is finished, at which point I plan to release the map to the Garry’s Mod Steam Workshop.

I will also try to answer most questions about this map, if any may come up.

You should take some inspiration from the levolution in EA’s Battlefiled 4.

No but really, this looks great. Have you recreated all the WTC buildings? Like WTC 5? Etc

Also. Is the blue fog to stay? Or will you attempt some form of realistic haze?

I am trying to get the fog to be like in the picture above. A light bluish colour that can fade seamlessly into a cloudless sky in the distant skybox.

All of the WTC buildings are there, from 1-7.

I won’t be able to work on this map for a few days as I am away from my desktop PC, but I will make these changes when I can.
