Leech2.pngLyhoko: Results are 9 votes for expanding to the north, 4 votes for expanding east, and 1 cote for expanding to the south.

GB-47-1.jpg

GB-47-2.jpg

The northern island of Galesfeburg has expanded a bit, but not too much... but then again, due to it's small size, the expansion looks more significant.

GB-47-3.jpg

Meanwhile, north of Bredli, development continues with more farms.

GB-47-4.jpg

As well as a new town, Nyunburg.

GB-47-5.jpg

This town doesn't seem to follow a standard grid pattern.

GB-47-6.jpg

It's not that big, but it is big enough to not be an unburg, and is the northernmost town in the region so far.

GB-47-7.jpg

And if you follow An 21 off to the east, it soon curves to the north and heads toward the large lake in the northern mountains... though it doesn't get quite that far.

GB-47-8.jpg

Meanwhile, Dziket Egulaur, (Cat's Friend), along with Fancy Feast, have set up this new cat food production and distribution center on the north end of Galesfeburg as one of the results from the recent meeting between Myon and Schulmania. Now, what will they think of Myonian cat food in Schulmania?

GB-47-9.png

And of course, the map.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: No new streets here.

GB-47-10.png

Another map?

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Shied is Myonian for "main," Baal is Myonian for "ball". Do not confuse with Ba'al.

Poll

Leech2.pngLyhoko: What should be added to the region next?

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Next up is the island to the north, as well as the surrounding areas. Also the meeting itself.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Remember to look closely at which option is which number when voting. Don't say something like "4 - expand Nyuumau area," 4 is expanding to the south, Nyuumau area is 3.

1:

Expand the area to the far north around the mountains

2:

Expand the area to the north around Bredli

3:

Expand the area to the east around Nyuumau

4:

Expand the area to the south around the mountains

Leech2.pngLyhoko: And for Galesfeburg:

A: 5 votes

Expand Galesfeburg to the north, on the island

B: 2 votes

Expand Galesfeburg to the east, replacing the farms

C: 3 votes

Expand Galesfeburg to the southeast, into the hills

D: 4 votes

Expand Galesfeburg to the southwest, along the coast

Leech2.pngLyhoko: And a third poll! Should a bridge be built linking the island to the rest of Galesfeburg?

Y: 1 vote

Yes, it won't grow well with only the ferry

N: 5 votes

No, the ferry connection is good enough for now

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Please choose one option per poll at a time... but you may vote more than once, as long as you do not double post. Let other people have a chance to vote!

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Feel free to offer suggestions on how to implement things as well. Or suggestions on new improvements for later on.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Unscheduled update!

Leech2.pngLyhoko: This isn't a full update, so no poll counting here.

image4261.jpg

The Schulmanian delegation has arrived at Gaalaenþur Island by way of Nyan Airlines. Gaalaenþur Island is roughly between Fiji and New Zealand... weren't they just in this area recently? Though Galesfeburg isn't anywhere near there... so why are they here? Simple. Nyan Airlines doesn't have space flight capability, so they have to transfer here, as this is the only Myonian territory on Earth.

GB-46-1.jpg

The Myonian plane they transfer to isn't quite as colorful, but it does have spaceflight capability. It's also powered by twin fusion reactors.

GB-46-2.jpg

It's reached its normal cruising altitude of 30,000 keejin (formerly known as kesan, = roughly 60,000 feet or 18,000 meters) and speed of around mach 2.5. This isn't going to get it to the planet Maiyan, though... If you look closely out the windows you may just sea the curvature of the Earth... and if you're sitting in the front half of the plane and look up, you'll see that the sky is a dark blue. It's going to get even darker all around though, as it's time to activate the neutrino engines to make it into space.

GB-46-3.jpg

Now you can easily see the curvature of the Earth! And we're already almost back to the other side of the Pacific Ocean. This plane doesn't have a wapbervklex drive though, so at this speed it would take millennia to get to Maiyan... plus we're not going the right direction. Instead, we're heading to a naturally existing wormhole that will take us there.

GB-46-4.jpg

Don't worry, the inside of the wormhole's supposed to be that color.

GB-46-5.jpg

Preparing to come in for landing... from a quarter of the way around the planet. At least it's the correct planet, now. Coming up soon is an easily visible fireworks show as the plane enters the atmosphere. It's perfectly safe though, the reentry shields will keep the heat away from the hull.

GB-46-6.jpg

We're almost there, just got to fly over some forest before arriving at Galesfeburg.

GB-46-7.jpg

And we've landed! Total flight time was around 5 and a half hours... not bad for a flight between two planets. It's actually better than what a ship with a wapbervklex drive can currently do. Too bad the Maiyan-Earth wormhole is the only one we know about so far.

GB-46-8.jpg

And after a quick ferry trip, everyone has safely arrived at the BFA facilities. As to how they like the flight, well you'll have to ask them.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: No map?

No map, this update at least.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: The results are 6 votes for expanding onto the island, 6 votes for merging with the unburg, 1 vote for expanding to the mountains, and 0 votes for expanding along the coast.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Another tie?

GB-45-1.jpg

Hey, that one intersection between S-3 and An 92 has finally been turned into an actual overpass!

GB-45-2.jpg

Meanwhile, the crazy interchange at Mien St. has also been modified into a much less chaotic arrangement, with the train tracks being offset slightly to allow for more room. Additionally, the unburg at this interchange is now an actual part of Galesfeburg.

GB-45-3.jpg

The area where the rest of the interchange was now has room for some additional development.

GB-45-4.jpg

Bit steamy around the original power plant in the new industrial zone...

GB-45-5.jpg

Development has spread down to the main road as well.

GB-45-6.jpg

And now the new development and the surrounding area at night. Seems like it's been awhile since a night picture came up...

GB-45-7.jpg

Meanwhile, plans are underway for a meeting between Myon and Schulmania, possibly along with the Blitkarni, a race of humanoid cat-like aliens who spit off of, and are an enemy to, the race that attacked the CS-1 back in updates Contact/Census 60EL. Details about the trip have yet to be released to the general public, but are believed to relate to the current conflict between Schulmania and Queensferry.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: No poll results this update due to tie.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Lyhoko should sleep sometime, as Lyhoko has been up over 24 hours straight now...

GB-44-1.jpg

The main street in Bredli has been upgraded since the last time it was seen. After turning to the left just past the farms here one will eventually reach the airport area.

GB-44-2.jpg

Some additional houses and farms have appeared on the west side of town as well.

GB-44-3.jpg

And some more farms in the area along An 97 between the airport and Bredli

GB-44-4.jpg

At the end on An 97, head north on one of the two roads to get to the airport, or head south to get to the airport ferry terminal.

GB-44-5.jpg

Meanwhile on An 72 to the north of Bredli, more farms have appeared.

GB-44-6.jpg

As well as another unburg. Hopefully they don't mind planes flying overhead, as the airport runway is directly to the west of here.

GB-44-7.png

And of course, the map.

Lyhoko Leaci

Leech2.pngLyhoko: The results of the poll are as follows: 4 votes for expanding around Bredli, 1 vote for expanding around Nyuumau, and 4 votes for expanding in the south. For the town name the decision was unanimously for Graskor, with 7 votes.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: First Minecraft, then Simcity was being slow, then a power outage, then traveling... How is Lyhoko supposed to make updates with all of that?

GB-41-8.jpg

Last time we were here, it was a bit wet... but now this town actually has a name! Welcome to Graskor!

GB-43-1.jpg

And goodbye, as there hasn't been any notable development there since the last time. However, there has been development up around Burgburg. First up is a large group of farms to the south of Galesfeburg on An 101, finally completely surrounding the town.

GB-43-2.jpg

Most of the development has been on the west side of Burgburg, with a whole new level being added between the new farms and the rest of town.

GB-43-3.jpg

There's a bit on the east side as well, but not much. Burgburg is also pretty much surrounded by farms as well now...

GB-43-4.jpg

Continuing east from Burgburg on An 101, there are several more farms, and some hills, but nothing like the mountains to the south of Burgburg.

GB-43-5.jpg

And soon we come to the unburg on the stream, which is now more solidly connected to the rest of the development in the region, instead of being at the end of a single road. It's still an unburg, though.

GB-43-6.jpg

North of the unburg, a new road, An 65, also connects into the region. Head to the west on it, and one will soon reach the southern part of Galesfeburg.

GB-42-1.jpg

A new interchange with S-3 has appeared between the unburg and where it originally ended at Galesfeburg, with the new development around it displacing the original farms. Incidentally, the unburg is just off to the east of here, and can easily be merged into the rest of Galesfeburg if there's any more expansion.

GB-42-2.jpg

The mayor's house is no longer right on the edge of town, as well, and the original corn field in the area has survived the expansion.

GB-42-3.jpg

Off on the other side of town, a new beach has appeared! This one seems to be a bit bigger than the one near downtown.

GB-42-4.jpg

GB-42-5.jpg

Just inland from the beach, a high wealth district has appeared, as have some more hills requiring the second level to be continued to the south.

GB-42-6.jpg

Some development has occurred along the main road, as well.

GB-41-1.jpg

Burgburg has expanded somewhat, with a couple new blocks appearing. Also, it seems a bit dark... is a storm coming?

GB-41-2.jpg

Several farms have appeared to the south of Burgburg as well, with the main road in town, An 32, now extending completely though to the other side.

GB-41-3.jpg

As An 32 continues to the south, the hills get even larger, and it soon becomes hard to find sufficiently flat areas for the planting of crops, so most of the area starts to be forest, with only occasional farms.

GB-41-4.jpg

An 32 soon comes to an end just before reaching the first real mountain in the area, but not before hitting some development at the intersection with An 41. Though this is just an unburg right now.

GB-41-5.jpg

Following An 41 off to the west, it passes some more development before hitting a section that needed to be cut out of the hillside.

GB-41-6.jpg

It then starts to curve around to avoid other ridges, but does manage to find some flat enough areas for more farms. It also finds some rain, as well.

GB-41-7.jpg

It then reaches another developed area, though this one is even smaller than the first. The farms in this area are starting to get more densely packed, as well.

GB-41-8.jpg

An 41 finally comes to an end once it reaches that one town that still doesn't have a name, which has expanded a bit as well.

GB-40-1.jpg

Galesfeburg has expanded to the south as well. This area just looks like many other parts of town...

GB-40-2.jpg

...but for the first time, the development has reached an area where it needs to be built on another level that isn't waterfront. Watch where you're driving at that 6 way intersection.

The area around the civic building has also been prepped, but for now nothing has been built here yet.

GB-40-4.jpg

And here's some farms off to the north of the ununburg or whatever that place is going to be called...

And a region view! Some new development here, like the new town, and the airport...

GB-39-2.jpg

A new town is in the area as well, but currently no one has been able to come up with a name for the place... So effectively, it's still and unburg, even though its big enough to be a town of its own.

GB-39-3.jpg

For the most part the town is built on the side of a hill along the coast.

GB-39-4.jpg

Farther inland, it flattens out, however, and several additional farms appear. There's more of the massive grass fields as well, for some reason...

As well as some more standard farms and pastures.

Nyuumau itself has grown a bit more as well, with an extension of 2nd street into what was previously a farming area.

Population: 1,235

GB-35-5.jpg

Just some farms between Nyuumau and Galesfeburg... the farming tower complex is new, though.

GB-35-6.jpg

There's been a bit more development down near the mountains, but as big as this place is, it's just short of becoming a town, so it's still an unburg.

GB-35-7.jpg

Random farms to the northeast of Galesfeburg, again.

GB-35-8.jpg

The unburg with the crazy highway interchange has a couple new buildings, but otherwise is much the same as before.

GB-35-9.jpg

Burgburg doesn't seem to have changed much at all recently.

Population: 1,045

GB-35-10.jpg

The Galesfeburg farmers market has been moved next to where the highway ends, where there still are some farms and no towers.

GB-35-11.jpg

GB-35-12.jpg

Galesfeburg itself hasn't changed much since the last time it was shown, but that is to be expected seeing as it was just shown recently.

Population: 17,354

GB-35-13.jpg

And now a region view. Bit more farms scattered about than before.

Total population: 22,441

Population not in towns: 1,609

Crew 2: They're firing!

Captain: Return fire, evasive maneuvers!

GB-35-15.png

While the CS-1 isn't known for its maneuverability, due to the long distance between the two ships, they were able to dodge some of the incoming energy blasts. However, the same was true of the enemy ship, as well. A couple minutes of shooting rounds back and forth passed without either ship knocking out each others shields.

Crew 5: Shields at 43%

Captain: What is the status of the relativistic cannons?

Crew 6: 4 of the 8 are ready to fire.

Captain: Target the ship and fire one round.

Crew 6: Rodger.

The CS-1 turned to aim directly at the unknown enemy ship, which brought the main weapons out of line of the target, but replace them with something far more powerful. The CS-1 suddenly visibly recoiled as a solid chunk of metal was launched at over 99% the speed of light.

GB-35-16.png

The last few rounds from the CS-1's main guns were just reaching the enemy ship when the hunk of metal hit the ship's shields and just kept right on going, before tearing through several decks and flying right out the back of the ship, along with a bunch of debris, parts of it still traveling at a significant fraction of the speed of light. Meanwhile, back at the ship, the parts that were hit but weren't launched out into deep space vaporized and exploded, blasting out an even bigger hole in the side of the ship.

Crew 3: They're jumping back into FTL!

Crew 1: They seem to be going back in the direction from where they came.

Captain: Let's leave before they bring reinforcements. ...This is going to mean a lot of paperwork...

Downtown has expanded somewhat, though there is isn't yet a great desire to expand here, due to the still significant open areas around the city. The city hall, however, does make this region its home, located just off the main road at the bottom center of the picture.

GB-34-2.jpg

Most of the recent development is down by the previous extension of town, though in this case it mainly just fills in the gap that was left between the two parts of town. The sort of open blocks in this region also allow for sizable open areas for the kids to play, as well.

GB-34-3.jpg

The new powerplant has been surrounded by development as well.

GB-34-4.jpg

For whatever reason, a lot of shops have popped up in this region...

GB-34-5.jpg

Roughly 100 light years rimward and anti-spinward of the planet Maiyan a Myonian CS-1 dropped out of a wormhole on the edge of a solar system.

Captain: Begin scans.

Crew 1: Will do.

...

Crew 1: Nothing of note to speak of here.

Crew 2: Just another empty system, with no signs of life of any sort.

Crew 3: Huh?

Captain: What is it?

Crew 3: A ship just showed up on the long range scanners, in subspace. Estimated arrival time is 1 minute.

Captain: What sort of ship?

Crew 4: Unknown, no record of this sort of ships is in the databanks.

Captain: Raise shields.

The CS-1's shields activated, and several seconds later, a hole in the fabric of space opened up and spat out a ship.

Roughly 2000km away, the new ship activated its own shields and powered its weapons, without even bothering to try to communicate.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Now it's as far from a tie as you can possibly go... Well, as far from a tie for first, at least.

GB-33-1.jpg

A new development has sprung up along the coast south of Galesfeburg, but in this case, it is still considered to be part of Galesfeburg.

GB-33-2.jpg

The center of the newly developed area isn't much different than other parts of town...

GB-33-3.jpg

The multi-use field in the area is certainly different from the rest of town, however. Hopefully this will increase the chances of finding good athletes for the Simlympics... the summer games, at least, though as Galesfeburg is currently only a relatively small city in Myon, who knows how much this will change things. There are plans to add more facilities as Galesfeburg gets bigger, however.

GB-33-4.jpg

An additional residential area... along with a rarely seen in the region diagonal street. Both this street and the one going off to the upper right connect to the rest of town.

GB-33-5.jpg

The diagonal street connects directly into the industrial area near the power plant...

GB-33-6.jpg

While the other street connects to what was previously the most southern development of Galesfeburg.

GB-33-7s.png

And of course, the map. The undeveloped area north of the new development is claimed by the town for future expansion.

For some reason, they're growing some sort of tall grass off to the southeast of Galesfeburg...

GB-32-2.jpg

And there's more than one plot of it, too. Though the rest of the farms in the area are more normal.

GB-32-3.jpg

A bit farther south, however, brings us to a new town, with the name of Burgburg. (Hilltown) Just what the person who named the place was thinking, I don't know. But it is the first development actual in the mountains, or at least the foothills.

GB-32-4.jpg

And more of the town. Still plenty of places to expand, though there's less and less room for farms out here in the hills.

GB-29-2.jpg

Traveling a bit farther, however, will get you to another small town, this on slightly bigger, which also has a stream running by it.Still not big enough for a name yet, so it's just yet another unburg in the region... for now, at least.

The train station has been upgraded to a much more significant covered station along with the upgrading of Staar St. Additionally, a roundabout makes an appearance nearby.

The construction of the avenue has ripped up various older buildings, but new buildings have popped up in the area to replace them. For the first time several significant office towers have appeared in the city, with the one on the left becoming the city's new tallest building.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: The results of the poll are as follows: 9 points for upgrading the port, 11 points for upgrading the rails, 1 point for upgrading the power generation, and 15 for connecting the highway directly to Galesfeburg. All 4 things will be done, the poll determines which gets priority.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: And for the peninsula poll: 9.5 votes for leaving the tip natural, and 12 votes for a park, and 14.5 points for natural, but with trails.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: Finally, a decision.

GB-27-1.jpg

The city council has finally come to a decision on the fate of the end of the peninsula, with the final choice being a compromise of sorts between the two tied options, so the peninsula remains mostly natural, but a path system has been added. It's a bit hard to see from above due to all of the trees, however.

GB-27-2.jpg

Up at the very tip a pair of outlook spots can be found, offering an unblocked view of the ocean from a natural location, though remaining within walking distance of the city. Once could fish from here as well, though the water's a bit shallow...

GB-27-3.jpg

Meanwhile, S-3 now connects directly to Weþureeg St. in Galesfeburg instead of its previous ending point, and additionally, the rail line has been upgraded to a duel track, though for now the rest of the improvements have yet to be added.

GB-27-4.jpg

S-3 as it gets closer to town. The houses may change to something else as I don't think too many people want a highway in their backyard...

Development has spread somewhat into the end of the peninsula, but only by one block this time, and mainly to clean up the area so that the civic buildings weren't in the middle of the forest.

GB-26-2.jpg

There is a set of twin residential towers in the new region, however, which are now the tallest buildings in the region... and they stand out quite a bit.

GB-26-3.jpg

And there's not much of interest on the northern side of the peninsula.

GB-26-4.jpg

The city council has once again failed to come up with a decision on what to do with the end of the peninsula, with a new vote on the two remaining options also ending up as a tie. Now what?

GB-26-5.jpg

Additionally, as the city continues to get bigger, several problems have popped up. The port currently only has room for smaller ships, and lacks the capability of docking larger freighters, and additionally, the single rail line makes it somewhat difficult to pass trains past eachother.

Meanwhile, the highway terminates away from the city itself, instead of connecting directly. Also, the current power plant is at roughly 66% capacity, good enough for now but if the city is to continue to expand, something must be done at some point.

And now, back to the actual update. The industrial area has grown a little bit, and for once, it's not the only development this far south in town.

And now, the biggest view of the city thus far!

The new development is visible at the bottom, and also of note is the change in farm sizes between the new and old areas.

GB-24-5.jpg

As for the end of the peninsula, the city counsel has yet to come to a decision, but they have narrowed the options down from 4 to just 2. Maybe they'll make a decision soon?

GB-25-13.jpg

And the CS-1 got into the images again... A new addition has also been made, in the form of 8 cannons attached to the top and bottom, which fire along the length of the ship at relativistic speeds. Or at lower power, they can be used to carry out pinpoint orbital bombardment, without the massive blasts caused by the original weaponry. Perfect for taking out things like enemy or Bugg-infested airfields, or other defensive positions. And if you're in high orbit, it will be that much harder for the enemy to fight back, assuming you've already taken out their starships.

Have a happy New Year!

It has now been 10 years since Galesfeburg has been founded. There's been the growth of several towns and unburgs, a hurricane, a highway, trains, and more. What will happen in the next 10 years?

GB-24-1.jpg

The waterfront docks and boardwalk have to come to an end at some point... past here, the shoreline just isn't suitable for stuff like this, with all of the low-lying swamps and islands in the way.

GB-24-2.jpg

A bit farther along, the commercial buildings are starting to get taller... but not by much so far.

GB-24-3.jpg

The northern waterfront, meanwhile, now has a bunch of smaller homes instead of the mass of condos and apartments that it is farther east.

GB-24-4.jpg

The center is still pretty boring, though several new civic buildings have popped up.

GB-24-5.jpg

The development is getting close to the end of the peninsula, and there is less and less room for expansion... ignoring the swampy side islands.

GB-24-6.jpg

And now, at night!

GB-24-7.jpg

The farms are getting quite spread out, too. And this is just the farms near Galesfeburg! It's also getting a bit cloudy.

GB-24-8.jpg

One can actually drive to Nyuumau now without going though the forest... aside from this bit here where a stream gets in the way... assuming you can even see the stream though the trees.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: The results of the poll are as follows: 1 vote for expanding the north shore, 3 votes for expanding Galesfeburg, 1 vote for expanding the south shore, and 6 votes for a bus system.

GB-23-1.jpg

In order to get a reasonable bus system going, there needs to be a hub somewhere. And here it is, located somewhat centrally... well, its located at the corner between the two wings of the city. Also located nearby is the main train station, and the so-called spaceport that's more of an open paved area... and a car getting t-boned.

GB-23-2.jpg

And here is one of the regular bus stops, in this case the Field/Staar station on the red/green lines.

Leech2.pngLyhoko: "Wienpurt" is "Bus stop."

GB-23-3.jpg

Even that one unburg near Galesfeburg has it's own stop. The blue line here then continues on to Nyuumau, where there are another three stops.

GB-23-4.jpg

And in non-bus related news, another farming street appeared. There were plans on connecting it to the highway like this...

GB-23-5.jpg

But it just ended up like this for some reason. The highway ends shortly after this intersection so it doesn't matter much now...

GB-23-6.jpg

Eh? I didn't know cats could drive...
