Update 22: R-Evolution
"Evolution, of course, is not something that simply applies to life here on earth; it applies to the whole universe."
I promised you a new colony, so here it is. This is Evolution-7, a square shaped colony next to Life-6.
Evolution-7 was supposed to be an industrial heaven, but the plans changed and now is a typical colony.
You can visit Evolution-7 by car, train or spaceplane.
This colony has an new generation of arcologies, the redmids. A redmid in a red pyramid-shaped colony, that can hold even more Sims and jobs. The biggest disadvantage however is their size. Those buildings are huge! However we'll see them in the next colonies a bit often. Some of the next colonies may have only minorgies, arcoruses, mushparks and redmids.
Between the redmids we can find the down-town of the colony. This is where we can find some of the coolest skyscrapers, the best hotels and the finest apartment buildings.
Let's get out of the down-town and explore the rest of the colony. We will see parks, factories and smaller buildings here and there.
Time to have a look at some other highlights of Evolution-7. This is a casino-like entertaining centre? Casino-like? As you may remember, planet Mars established the Resource-Based Economy. In this economical model, all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of all of the SimMartians, not just a select few. The premise upon which this system is based is that Mars is abundant with plentiful resource, so any practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter productive to our survival. Without money, gambling should be a thing of the past... unless you're using "priceless" stuff, like peanuts and corn flakes
This is the Conversation Centre, where Sims come together and share their ideas in new products, inventions e.t.c.. Yes yes, this is a tree-like stone-made statue, made by a street artist.
SimMartians live sports, so stadiums are always welcomed.
This is the Cosmic Opera. Inside we can hear a new type of new age and ambient electronic music, that also uses sounds of the planet Mars. This kind of music called "Barsoomian Music" and becomes very popular on Mars.
This is the Temple of Righteous. Sims need to know what's all about "good", "evil" and "neutral" and if they truly exist. Those temples allows the SimMartians to use philosophy, science and other tools, in order to discover which life path is the best. There are many millions of Sims on Mars, billions on Earth and thousands on Moon. All of them agree that those worlds are round like a ball, but not all of them agree in what is "right" and what's "wrong".
This is Lucifer's Nest, one of the most famous hotels on Mars.
As you may remember, Mars established the Cybernated Government. Mars is a quantum cybernated society, where computers replaced the outmoded system of electing politicians, that in most cases represent the entrenched vested interests. The only purpose of this system is not the creation of a global dictatorship, but to elevate the spiritual and intellectual potential of all people, while at the same time providing the goods and services that will meet their individual and material needs. Here we can see the central quantum computers of Evolution-7.
Here we can see the Transhumanism Interplanetary Headquarters. Transhumanism suggests the usage of advance genetics and cybernetics, in order to evolve the SimMartians from Homo Sapiens to Homo Superior. The laboratories are in both redmids. Evolution-7 is truly the city of evolution, from Human to Superhuman... and beyond.
Time to get out of the colony. This is the graveyard of the colony.
Here we can see the meteorological and hydrological research laboratories, looking for water and examining the weather.
Just like in Life-6, some Sims prefer to live outside of the colony.
And finally, the nuclear fission power plant of Evolution-7.
And the silly picture of the day, traffic jam on Mars
Any comment and idea is welcomed. A new, cool colony is coming soon. Stay tuned
