From this update you will see extra creations from the SimMars Team that doesn't released yet, made by Timcravey, Evillions, Renedius and Andisart. Those extra creations will be released from SimMars Team, so be patient
By the way, Eden: The New Frontier in now 6 months old, so I decide to make a simple video...

Update 27: Back to the beginning
"The wisest men follow their own direction"
Welcome to 2064 A.D. (95 A.T.). It's a historical year, with the beginning of the first truly interplanetary mission. 2 spacecrafts from 2 different planets will join together for the exploration of a new world. The mission called "Space Odyssey" and it's all about the exploration of Saturn by a Terran and a Martian ship.
This is the spacecraft Spirit of Earth, a nuclear spacecraft made by SimTerrans and SimLunars, just before leaving the Lunar orbit.
Spirit of Mars, an also nuclear ship, just before leaving the Martian orbit.
2 different spacecrafts from 2 different world and philosophies. SimTerrans are mostly democratics and religious, while SimMartians are mostly anarchists and atheists. But both knows that they are brothers and sisters, with the same ancestors and the same need of a better tomorrow. Spirit of Earth and Spirit of Mars will join together in orbit around Venus...
... and then they'll set their destination to planet Saturn, in 2069 A.D. (100 A.T.).
At the same time, the mayor colonies of Mars are going to improved. Let's make the beginning with Hope-1, the most historical colony on Mars. This is were all becomes...
Many people believed that Mars is nothing more that a dead piece of dust. No life, no water, no reason to colonise it. Let's sit here on Earth eternally and doing nothing interesting...
But a small scientific base evolved into the first extraterrestrial city, Hope-1. Thanks to this city, Mars evolved into the second cradle of the mind.
Most of the improvements I made in Hope-1 are out of the main colony. I made the terrain more realistic, without too much or too few stones and rocks. I also add plenty of buildings made by great B.A.T.ers, like Somy and SimMars team.
Here we can see the nuclear power plants of Hope-1. I had plenty of small power plants, so I think it's better to just have those 2 big boys. I also made them more realistic, by placing them out of the colony and adding some extra stuff, like a parking garage and some walls.
This is the hydrological facility of Hope-1. I think it's better to bring together all the water-relative facilities. What do you think?
Everybody makes garbage and nobody want them next door. Surreal, isn't? Even more surrealistic is having the recycle centre here and the incinerator 10 miles there! So I made this...
I also change the position of the meteorological laboratory. I think that out of the colony will be more effective.
I never liked having the cemeteries inside of the colony, so...
This is the Communication Laboratory, that makes research in new technologies to improve even more all kind of communications.
Something brand new, the university of Hope-1. Mostly underground, the university use advanced quantum computers to create realistic holograms and simulators. Now it's possible to live the history of humanity and see the anatomy of a dolphin from the inside!
Close to the university we'll find the Sentinel, a large sculpture made by the SimMartians. The Sentinel was inspired by Arthur Clarke's novel "The Sentinel" and it's a tribute to him. We need more people like Clarke, brilliant minds full of optimism and scientific kindness, especially in the dark times of 2011...
I also expand a bit the Interplanetary Spaceport of Hope-1, by using Somy's spaceport stuff.
Some Sims build their homes out of the colony and create mini communities.
Speaking of mini communities...
2 Hummingbirds are flying around the colony. Those flying machines are ornithopters, aircrafts that flies by flapping their wings like a hummingbird. The Hummingbirds are also V.T.O.L. (Vertical Take Over and Land) and they can stay in the air like a truly hummingbird.
Let's visit the colony itself. I made the small airport a bit more realistic by expanding the runways.
This is the Temple of Righteousness of Hope-1. This is where SimMartians join together and research about the philosophy of Good and Evil. They are also studying older ideologies, like Communism and Paganism, to improve both body and mind. Hope-1 Temple is studying the philosophy of Buddhism, while other colonies are examining another ideas.
Sims are not too fool to walking around the rail roads, but some extra protection can be very useful as well...
I also made the open spaces a bit more realistic.
This statue of a pregnant woman is the Venus of Mars. By this statue, SimMartians recognises the importance of the women and their fights to earn their right as well.
Space stations are orbiting around Mars. Some of them studies the red planet, other makes experiments and others are opening the road to the new frontier...
New improvements for the next colonies are coming soon. Please stay tuned and feel free to leave a comment. Any idea is welcomed
