First post from my new computer. Maybe more tonight. I might have to upgrade my copy of 3DS, as my version doesn't work perfectly with Vista.

Right now I'm just rendering, because 3DS7 isn't running well enough in Vista to make alterations to the model. The good news is that my new pc renders twice as fast as the old one. I'm thinking about upping some of the detail.

Calibrating my new PC, but I decided to post the test renders anyway.

Test render showing only the core and interior columns of Tower 2.


More test renders.

Wow, that's awesome. Is vista better than XP? (Dumb question to ask)

Yes, for the most part, but it has quirks, but they don't outweight the benefits.

It certainly looks better than XP.

Sorry to get off the subject but how does a Vista compare to a Mac?

Well, Vista works with the programs I use. Mac does not. So Vista 1, Mac 0.

I did consider buying an apple machine, but only with the idea of installing windows over Mac OS X. But I'm not paying an extra $1,000 for that damn bitten apple logo.

The last image you posted is a real good view. I love the lobby level and you did it so well.

If I had a time machine, and I could change only one thing about history, I'd make the events of 9/11 non-existant.

I've seen them from a distance in real life when I was much younger on a drive from Florida to Connecticut (I-95), but I've never been to them.
