Mastof: haha, yea, I do get carried away with it occasionally (probably because i enjoy it ). Thanks!
LoonyMan: Tanx! and actually I'm a PC
One morning, all was quiet; the streets were empty and everyone was asleep. The news yesterday had a goverment announcement to stay indoors for most of the day, so of course everyone was sleeping in. Not for long...
Explosions rattle the capital during the early morning hours.
Being a respectful bunch of people, everyone waited out the morning and then some as more Earthshaking explosions took place. Based on where they were coming from, it seemed the old farm out by the hightway was being destroyed by them. Everyone was deeply puzzled, what's going on?
Once it was a little while after dinner, everyone packed up and went out to see what all the commotion was. Yakingo's residents were greeted by something completely new to them... coal.
The new coal quarry has a small depot close to the entrance and the highway.
Beyond the depot at the entrance, everyone's eyes were fixed on something they had never seen before....
A huge excavator-type mining rig was erected in the quarry's pit.
A few weeks later...
The Dashyation government is the only group benefittting from the mine's revenue; the people have gotten many new jobs and have started buying many more commericial products and service luxuries. Though the industrial sector has been revitalized, the commericial aspects of Yakingo have improved as well.
A few new offices have opened on some terraced land overlooking the ocean to the east.
Small shops and restraunts fill plazas around town and sell products such as computers, TVs, bacon, and other things that the populace couldn't afford about a month ago.
They even stay open all night!
The town has outgrown its small central square, so the avenue at the northern end of the sqare is being expanded westward for a new residential and commerical district.
Finnaly, a grand overview of Yakingo. The quarry is up to the top right by Highway A-1 North and the now-decomissioned oil facility and its port are on the bottom right following the avenue.
Everyone's got coal for Christmas this year!
Hope you all enjoyed.
