NYC Taxiology 101 Preview

Here's a preview of my upcoming post of the different looks of those famous yellow cars and how they've changed since the 1970's.

How the hacks car has changed in 10 years:

Central Park West and the 65th Street Traverse-1997

65th St and Madison Avenue-2007

We'll take that trip through time next time.

Those are some great taxis Hanson, it's really interesting how they changed.

Also Hanson,(this sort of a random thing to say for posting it here but I thought it would be ok) I'm working on the origonal World Trade Center Seven to add to rubik3's WTC. I'm trying to make it as accurate as I can, I've even looked at the old WTC 7 that rubk3 was working on but was never released. I looked at his for a few details like the loading dock, since I thought it really had one. Now I model in sketchup, and it would be hard to make that red sculpture on the overpases, which I'm making too, and I was wondering if you have time, could you make it for me? You don't have to, unless you want to.

I'm sorry to double post but I forgot to mention that I didn't mean that I waanted you to make the sculpture exactly now or whenever scince I'm so far at basic shapes of the building and sort of started on the windows.

I'm not sure if I have time to model the sculpture. The 3D model of the WTC I uploaded for download includes 7 World Trade and it also includes the sculpture (I think)

Hope that helps and good luck,

Thanks for replying Hanson, Oh by the way, I'm simcity4fan12 from simtropolis who relased the building based off of 85 West street. I'm currently re texturing it and re doing some details where it will look alot better. I don't know why I rusehed it I could have done better the first time. Oh and is it still on the website? I tried to update some of its stats then it just dissapeared.
