The Viceroyalty of Perseus
« on: May 17, 2014, 07:31:02 AM »


I've been crafting and developing Perseus for many years and so much still remains to done, it's a looooong term project and I simply use it as an expression of creativity. It's not a 'realistic' place, there are elements that are perfectly plausible but 'realism' is not what interests me. I've created a place with a rather unique history and somewhere that embraces and encourages technological achievement and progress. It could be argued that the Perseus I have created is idealistic, but where's the harm in that?!

I'm looking forward to showcasing Perseus through this new MD and I hope people enjoy what I've created and continue to create. There'll be a mix of in-game images, newspapers, news reports, politics and some real-world images. I'm aware of the guidelines in regard to discussing real-world issues and politics so that'll be avoided.

The first proper update will be some background to Perseus

Funnilly, Atlantis was one of my early SC4 projects and loved it. I then developed it into the Atlantean Empire and moved it 'off-world' (goodness....do you remember the days when we have lots of 'off-world' MD's?). Perseus was created in order to maintain an Atlantean presence on Earth and a rather complex and perhaps unrealistic, yet enjoyable, story was created to explain it all.....but I'll come to that  :D

You're soon realise this MD isn't founded in realism, but then I personally never found that enjoyable.

Actually, all of that data serves to give Perseus its own brand of realism.  :)  In any case, it will be interesting to see a measure of the legendary Atlantis.  I'm looking forward to the next update.  ;D

@vortext:
Thank you, I know it's maybe not the most conventional way to start an MD but I'd like to give people all the background info and present it like an actual country. I'll be showing more in-game stuff now some of the boring stats are out of the way :)

@romualdillo:
I'm very glad to hear that! There'll be plenty of history and I hope you find that and the pics enjoyable.

@kelis:
Many thanks, I'm so pleased you're enjoying it so far! I hope future updates are just as well received.

The majority of all government departments are located within the Axehaven Park Government District of Passau, located to the south of Legislative Palace and Imperial Quarter. Axehaven Park was originally laid out to serve as the headquarters of the British Viceroy that governed the Ben Madigan during its time as a British Colony. It continued to serve as the primary hub of national governance when Ben Madigan achieved autonomy and later independence from the United Kingdom.


The two original buildings from that period, Caledon House and Braemar House are still in use. Caledon House houses His Imperial Majesty's Treasury while Braemar House is utilised by the Department for Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defence.







In 1975 the new Persusian Government was created and new departments created, requiring more and modern office space. To cope with demand Wellington Towers was constructed between 1979 and 1982. Consisting of two 38 storey towers with connecting entrance atrium they stand at 155m (515ft) they were built at the south-eastern edge of Axehaven Park. Today they house the Departments of Health, Education Agriculture and Work.

In 2000 a new property development was undertaken by the Persusian Government to further expand office accommodation. Wellington Place was build between 2000 and 2003 and is today home to the Departments of Social Development, Regional Development, Environment, Energy, Justice, Science and Enterprise.

@noahclem
Thank you! I very much enjoy 'monumental' city planning and design, it's hard work and I'm a bit of a perfectionist but it's something I enjoy crafting and experimenting with. It's not always practical but it's enjoyable nevertheless.


@Marius
Well you know me Marius, I've always been a devoted follower of city grandeur, I just can't help it!  ::)


@dragonshardz
Thank you, I'm gald to see you again also. I hope you enjoy checking in with Perseus  ;)
