And yes, my C.J. is finally a Best Seller in SC4D! Big thanks to everybody!! :D
And this is only the beginning

Update 24: EcoTechnoLogic
"We won't have a society if we destroy the environment."
The colony is almost ready. All I need is to make the barren surface more realistic and add some extra details. Maybe some workers homes or something very cool. Anyway. Welcome to Respect-8!
Respect-8 is the very first Martian colony with a biodome. This colony has a huge park with plenty of trees under the biodome, surrounded by high-tech industries.
Respect-8 symbolise the need of co-exist of nature and technology. Let's be honest, technology isn't something exotic. Technology made by Sims. Sims are humans. Humans evolved by ape-like animals and so on. Even some animals have technology, like some birds that use stones like hammers to brake eggs. Human technology can, and should, co-exist with nature.
This colony mixes 3 kinds of natures, the Terran, the Martian and the Transhuman. The biodome symbolize the Terran nature, like the trees and the birds. The barren outside of the colony symbolise the Martian nature, like the Martian bears and the Martian trees. The laboratories in the between symbolize the Transhumanistic nature.
Some of the factories here creates cybernetic and genetic prosthetics, like synthetic skin, quantum brains and extra durable bones. If we have the technology and responsibility we need, why not upgrading ourselves? This is the Transhumanistic nature, that includes advanced SimMartian and not only. There are also research laboratories that seek for ways to create new life forms. Robotic animals? Brand new species of plants? Bring them all!
Other factories creates goods like smart homes, cars, robots e.t.c.. We can also see skyscrapers of Terran and Lunar corporations and Martian services, as well as shops for the workers.
Notice those tree-like structures? Factories emits some gases, where some of them can be useful for the terraforming project. Those structures collects those gazes, in order to study them and maybe making them useful. It's a kind of "reusing".
Time to see the utilities of Respect-8. Here are the power plants, a small solar collector and some electrostatic "batteries".
This is the water department, that contain water pumps and cleaning devices.
And this is the waste management, with biomass burners and recycle centres.
And yes, it's time to visit the highlight of Respect-8, the bio-dome!!
To enter the bio-dome, all you need is to drive into 1 of the 4 airlocks. Then start walking, without spacesuit this time, or riding a horse.
Or take the subway
This is the central quantum computer of Respect-8, a new part of the Planetary Cybernated Government Network.
The bio-dome has some extra utilities, including a water pump and a geothermal power plant.
The bio-dome is a truly paradise with plenty of flowers, butterflies, trees and birds. You may also see a few bears, foxes and other animals.
Speaking for birds, here is a bird watching tower. The Terran birds adapted very quick on Mars, thanks to the low gravity. However Mars will not be forever a red, barren world. After terraforming, how the birds may evolve into the distant future? It's too soon for the answer, so stay tuned.
Watching birds is not the only thing you can do. Picnics, camping, swimming and others thing that you can also do. Of course the low gravity of Mars brings some... interesting effects
Respect-8 will not be the only colony with bio-dome. More bio-domes are coming soon. Please stay tuned
