Great Day For Freedom? Now that's definatly some Anthem worth singing  :P

There's a King Frederick around, huh? Any chance he's got roots to the Hohenzollern? If so, he'd be a relative of Frederick-Arnold, ruler of the Zollernmark kingdom (huh, I really have to get an update on this, I think I haven't posted at all on this for like two years now  ??? )

Be looking forward to seeing more  :)

Guess what?! It's time for some replies!

Replies:

caspervg - How did you dare to comment on my flag!? Lol. Anyways, thanks for the kind comments ;)

Simpson - Thank you very much!

praiodan - Thanks! About your question: no, he isn't! (At least officially  ;D)

thundercrack - Thanks!

art128 - Again, you wasn't supposed to comment on that flag!  ;D Oh, and you found out the roots of the MD name. Congratulations - you found out something that is obvious! :P

sciurus54 - Thanks

So, thanks everyone one's again! That's why I love ya all! (Don't take it's too seriously ;))



Ok, anyways, I have something
Really important to say!!

The update is not going to be that weekend (at least I don't think so ;)), 'cause my comp has crashed and my plugin folder has been destroyed ;p. So, please be patient, 'cause I think that it's going to be better than I've ever planned. And you know why? Because I'm going to download CAM and all of CAMpatible buildings!

But remember: The MD is not dead! (yet :D) Just please wait one-two days longer, OK?

Have a nice Dave's Day/Not-Dave's Day/Night/Whatever  :P

The Consitiutonal Monarchy Of Blue Floyd - First Update
« Reply #13 on: September 26, 2008, 01:51:49 PM »
UPDATE TIME!

Today I'm going to show you the only part of the country that I've built - Mason's Court. It is named after Pink Floyd's drummer, but in my country, Nicholas Mason was the first person who decided to life in the area. He's the national hero, and once a year, on the 3rd of March, the holiday is being celebrated.

The buildings in the update are plopped, but I hope you will like it! ;)


This photo shows the Red Towers Estate, which was 67th on the list  'Of the Best Estates in Contemporary Europe', hold in 1965. Today, most of the towers has been demolished, but some still stand proudly. (The buildings of the estate are the red, high towers :P) Since the estate was big, the towers will be visible on almost every photo.


Don't have anything to say about that photo. More on the red numbers later.


This may seem as just another photo by me showing another useless and disgusting area of my city, but in fact it's one of the most monumental areas of the town. Like Piccadilly Circus in London, or the Times Sq in New York, the building with that big neon is the biggest landmark in the area. Now you can see how pathetic is that city. ;)


The Transportation Square is one of many green/white areas in the area.  It has taken its name from the Blue Floyd Rapid Transport HQ located in the building with the writing Coca-Cola on it. You will have the oppurtunity for being the president on this company, but the way will be reveiled in the next updates.


The overview of the area. Have you seen such a sad, bad and pathetic photo? If so, you have to be the most unlucky person in the whole world. ;)

And now for the...
Buy the house in Blue Floyd!
The rules are simple. You buy houses for the posts. Do you remember the numbers on the 2nd picture? This are the propeties avaible to buy.

1 - A flat in the Freddie Mercury Tower, a part of Red Towers Estate. (5 posts) Bought by Simpson
2 - The apartment in the 'House of Book', where the biggest bookshop in the city is located. (8 posts)
3 - The flat in 35 Sea Ave, another landmark in the city. (13 posts)

How many posts 'do you have':
caspervg: 1
Simpson: 3
praiodan: 1
thundercrack: 1
Arthur: 2
scirius: 1
Fatsuhono: 1

Have fun, and hope you liked the update. Constructive criticism is welcomed as always. Don't hestitate to give me some tips or even request something. ;D

And don't worry: We will have some more updates about Mason's Court. ;)
Piotr

Nice! A suggestion would be to turn of the grid (press "g") when taking pictures, and perhaps try not to show to much Zoom-6 pictures (as they are a little tiled). The city itself looks splendid however. Casper von Treebaum is probably happy with how the monarchy is developing.

You really have been stickin' it to the grid with this one - I like your tram network too.
My days here are numbered. It's been great and I've had a lot of fun, but I've moved on to bigger and better things.
