The World Trade Center Twin Towers were landmarks in New York city skyline. Both had 110 floors (which was a record until Burj Khalifa). Each tower had 3,800,000 square feet (350,000 m2) of office space. Altogether the entire complex (with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 WTC) of seven buildings had 11,200,000 square feet (1,040,000 m2) of space.
1WTC, the north tower was 526m (1727 ft) high with its spire, 417m (1368ft) high without. It was the headquarters of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
2WTC, the south tower was 415.0 m (1,362 ft) high and had an observatory deck on the 107th and 110th floor AKA "Top of the World observation deck".
On a typical weekday 50,000 people worked in the towers with another 200,000 passing through as visitors. The complex was so large that it had its own zip code: 10048. The towers offered expansive views from the observation deck atop the South Tower and the Windows on the World restaurant on top of the North Tower. The Twin Towers became known worldwide, appearing in numerous movies and television shows as well as on postcards and other merchandise, and became seen as a New York icon, in the same league as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty.

About the model:
Even if there already is a "twin towers mod" by microsphera, it wasn't finished and didn't have details. On Preyfr60's suggestion, I created new models.
This mod presents itself as two different towers that you can place like you want: north and south tower.
Both towers have bases of 95 x 65 meters.
North Tower (WTC 1) triangle count:
+ Custom furniture 3.100
South Tower (WTC 2) triangle count:
+ Custom furniture 2.800
Functionality: (Thanks Preyfr60!)
Both are offices with a landmark effect and gives a holiday bonus.
You can find them in the "Decoration => Landmarks => Custom Content" Menu.
This mod it's more like a collaboration since I got lots of help from other modders, Special Thanks to
Preyfr60 for creating a more functional CLASS file, otherwise you'd got another regular office tower. Also thanks for writing most of this entry, testing the mod, give suggestions.
Snick25. For testing the mod and taking awesome screenshots of it in his CXL New York City.
Altiris for always helping me and specially for adding the helicopter animation on the South Tower helipad. The car parking on the North Tower is also based on one of his actor sample files.
Look how cool it is!:

It's not long before we will be moving. The new hosting has been setup and the next thing to be done is to change the DNS. When it's changed it may take between 24 to 48 hours to take effect. During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move. Note: It may take up to two weeks to get XLN up and running again.Dismiss Notice
