i thought this would be a dramatic simulation like on Air Crash Investigation or some tv show like that

Primetime 101....how did you response even come close to addressing what I said to Aqausixio? I hate to burst your bubble, but I think everyone already knows war is good for business. I simply suggested to Aqausixio that 9/11 affected her country as well as ours. And lastly, if 9/11 didn`t happen and Madrid or London subway bombing did happen, I don`t think the US would be in Iraq right now. We`re in Iraq because Bush used 9/11 as a pretext for invasion so we would have a more secure access to the oil. Without an attack on our own soil, he would have not pulled the wool over some many American`s eyes about iraq. Peak Oil has either already happened or is about to and the industrialized world is going to take what`s left. It`s not right or moral but it just is.

primetime your an incosiderate I am a pretty pretty little girl if it was you or your son at war it wouldnt be a statistic thats why the country is going to poo becuase fools like you think that because your not in the war literally then its not your war.. honestly the media and everything has put a complex in peoples head that the more money or lack of money you have put you in different classes until you realize that those soldiers prime time are you then our country will continue to fall and 23scadu it drating matters because if your child was out in iraq like 2 of my relatives you and them would want to know if your fighting in something just and if bush did start this and condoned the attacks i would want him jailed for the remainder of his life. and i know many people agree with that.(which in my heart and several other people also think that bush and other political figures started this)

not even going to get started on the dumb people here that actually have the nerve to say that the buildings bottom floors wouldve been completely destroyed the video showed the main supports being damaged but not the ones that werent directly hit by the plane
and people still think that a plane alone knocked down every single story of the building anyone that doesnt even question it is a jackass

Ok first It was not a guys voice it was a computer program i`ve used it. Its fun when you put interesting words in the computer not the blah blah blah they had.

"9/11 in america is what Diana is to england as people just wont give it a rest and blame absolutely everyone for it when there is one easy straight forward culprit or answer."

so you`re saying that 9/11 was caused by the media?

MystreT said

"Aqausixio, you don`t care about this? Well this event has led to the War on Terror which has cost YOUR country over $20 billion and several deaths. Ask the families of your countrymen who have died, see if they care."

When will people find out that war is good for the economy. You have to build factories to build weapons to send them to the soldiers and then you have to hire people etc. And if this event didn`t happen another one would have. Ex:Madrid bombings

And Aramil said that it caused 3000 deaths. 1 death is a tragedy, 3000 is a statistic

Well the aluminum was moving at several hundred miles an hour. Surely you`ve heard the stories of hurricanes, where hot dogs and pencils shoot through solid walls? And that`s not even approaching 200mph. Besides, you a theoretical physicist? Not a fu*ken chance.

In short, this was a nice and informative little video. I never realized how the fuel moved like that.

That was the crappiest infomercial for a Physics Engine ever.

What?

What`s that you say?

It was supposed to teach me about what happened in the towers?

FAILURE.

Less masturbatory talk about CG and more information on why what happened did, please!

(The conspiracy nuts look better all the time.)

The point of this video is not the collision itself but is the power of the program that was used to create this animation. The fact that they used September 11th is inconsequential.

RyanF701 i think we should hit the conspirators with heavy objects! I don`t think they did it, but they still deserve to get hit!

(p.s. there`s no 9/11 conspiracy, so quit being dumb)

Ummm this basically proves the government wasn`t involved and that there is no conspiracy. Also the graphics are good the textures and artists merely suck.

It`s like using 1000$ brushes to paint a crayon picture, so it`s ok but not designed to be visual. It`s designed to prove conspiracy theorists are idiots.

I like how they broke it down so we could see each element at a time.

I wouldn`t say it`s freakishly hard to do, but it must have taken time getting all the coding and math perfect.

And by the way, they`re not trying to prove anything. You don`t play Flight Sim to learn to fly a real plane, it`s to get a SIMULATION.

"I DONT GIVE."
The events of 9/11 caused the deaths of 3000+ people durring and after. They initaited a war that has killed more than 50,000 civilans, not to mention combatants simply fighting for their country, on both the sides of the CotW and the ME forces. You "DONT GIVE."? Go drat yourself.

"9/11 in america is what Diana is to england as people just wont give it a rest and blame absolutely everyone for it when there is one easy straight forward culprit or answer."

I hope it`s not that bad in the US- over here we have to
put up with a Diana story just about every month,
not always about her earth but still very
annoying. I personaally think a time-travler from
the future killed her so there wouldn`t be a
conspiracy theory in the future but it failed.

But I digress, simulations can be helpful in
certain circumstances and I have no idea whether 9/11 was caused by planes OR bombs.

vana129...this is not where your tuition money goes. The person/people who did this are probably graduate students, which means that they are probably using some kind of grant money from some government agency or something. Engineers especially get millions to work with, just because their projects are so expensive.

And it probably cost a lot to get this project done, but once again, none of your tuition money in play...

Also, I think the reason to do this is not to prove or disprove anything about 9/11, the whole point is to demonstrate that it is possible to accurately simulate an event using certain software and data. It is just a demonstration. Maybe this can be used in the military to simulate the effects of bombs, or used in the FBI/Law Enforcement to simulate crime scenes or accidents.

The bottom line is, someone thought this would be useful, and paid money to get it done.

Not really. http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/cmh/simul...

Says that is only rendered with 3DSMax and all the math poo is done by LS-Dyna and if you have to put in a request to see the price for LS-Dyna, its gotta cost hella!

Well the video was pointless, it didn`t tell us anything about whether the supports should of held it up or anything, all it seemed intersted in, was advertising how good this simulator was and how they could do it.
Boring as hell E-
And by the way RyanF701 you do talk schit, there are many inconsistencies in the collapse of these buildings and just to dismiss it as crap is ridiculous, I`m yet to agree with any of your comments, sgdp makes the good point of NOT the conspiracy MORE the possibility, nice job sgdp.

What Ryan said made perfect sense. He intends to black the conspiracy theorists for 9/11 and beat with heavy objects. Whether they really did it or are just lying about it doesn`t matter, it`s morally just (in his opinion) either way.

I`m starting a WTC conspirator conspiracy.

I think the conspirators of WTC actually did it.

And if not, we can just go hit them with heavy things while they`re trying to spread their bullsh*t.

Anyone with me?
