Busy
    

It's been busy in Evean Vansop. Take a look at these numbers:
mostflags_zps3db1inj9.jpg
This is from what was our busiest day at Evean Vansop on Simtropolis...

People are moving in... and moving up... but not moving on!

b6_zpscaatx5aw.jpg
It's been busy at the Performing Arts Center -- Grumpy Cat is in concert!

b5_zps90lv4erf.jpg
It's always busy here at lunch time...

a5_zps5geaj7ye.jpg
The neighbors are busy wondering why this dude lives in a big box...

b1_zpsyqmijdon.jpg
The shopping center has seen better days, but the Sonic is still busy. That's because they have good onion rings and milkshakes half price from 2-4 on weekdays!

b4_zpsvkwv1hgk.jpg
Busy buying me a present? You should be!

a4_zpse0tyu3cd.jpg
The kids are busy planning their trick or treating. Someone needs to cut me in for some Snickers!

b2_zpsbnan1w0t.jpg
It's quiet here... everyone's busy playing paper football in the office!

Speaking of trick or treat... this is a kid's dream neighborhood: houses close together so you can score LOTS of candy!
a3_zpsakpdkk4b.jpg

a2_zps78qar6wn.jpg
Snickers... and Twix would be nice. Kit Kat and assorted Hershey would be good...

a1_zpsxaqn9y3z.jpg
Apartments will keep kids busy getting candy all night long... candy they, in turn, will bring to me!

It's a busy week... start getting me your candy NOW!

Socially Awkward

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

Socially Awkward
    

Yes, there's always something which doesn't fit in... Let's see who, or what, is socially awkward here in the suburbs surrounding the capital today...

a1_zpsejg57day.jpg
Looks like a pleasant suburban apartment here... but, here's the sad truth: NO ONE in this building plays SimCity!! AWKWARD!!!!

a2_zpsulyygfcy.jpg
These upscale condos look ok on the outside...

a3_zpszhfqy2px.jpg
...but the truth is most of the residents here have not downloaded their dependencies! AWKWARD!!!

a4_zpsiuhk2rfe.jpg
A quiet leafy suburb... but, the ugly truth shall be revealed! The police and fire and ambulance will not come here at all... no matter what. Why? It is just outside the service area circles  each draws around their stations. House on fire with crooks inside? No help for you!!!

a5_zpslj4t12sg.jpg
You wanna talk socially awkward? No one wants to go over to JD's house... he has the PROP POX!!!!

b1_zpsn7mkz9g9.jpg
If you want to cross this street, blue jays will swoop down and peck you on the head. Out shopping? Bring a hat... or, a helmet.

b2_zpstjsyy8if.jpg
How's this for awkward? In all of the offices with slanty walls, the occupants all walk diagonally to compensate...

b5_zpskaf22rme.jpg
I can't tell you how many fights have broken out right here... they always start the same way:
"Where do you wanna eat?"
"I don't know. What do you want?"
"What are you in the mood for?"
 "I don't know. Anything."
"How about that one?"
"No, I don't like that one."
"Just pick..."
"You pick..."
And then it's go time!

b6_zpsoracukbf.jpg
That awkward moment when the office party fires up the karaoke machine...

b4_zps5tkfrzmn.jpg
How about the awkward moment when you get to the gas station and realize the gas tank hatch is on the other side? And then you drive back around and it's STILL on the other side??!!

b3_zpstf0hlppg.jpg
And finally (thankfully), how about that awkward moment when you work at Arby's but don't pay attention to where you are walking and end up next door working at Sonic? Oops!

Back To School

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

Back To School
    
The three words kids dread most: BACK TO SCHOOL! It's getting to be about that time. And in Evean Vansop, that means heading out to the stores to take advantage of the back to school sales. Why wear the same ol' stuff when you can get mom and dad to buy you a whole bunch of cool NEW stuff?! Let's see what you can get to be the coolest kid in class...

b6_zpsmyweyuyi.jpg
Save 20% on slide rules... and buy 3, get a store credit good for a free shirt on your next shopping trip!

b9_zpskjjxfcum.jpg
Regular Target has stuff 15% off...

b5_zpslfo4wu2n.jpg
Super Target has stuff 25% off because, well... it's super!

b8_zpsl9cr1fm7.jpg
The mall has all sorts of sales... and a food court. We can hang out at the food court and shoot the paper wrappers from the straws at each other. It's way cool!

b7_zpsf2dhrg5z.jpg
Buy 2 get 1 free on Victrola horns!

b2_zps7d0bfuar.jpg
Half off Commodore 64s at Wally World!

b3_zpsma8bovbv.jpg

b1_zpsf3otvwlf.jpg
The ink well store is having 25% off custom colors of ink... no pigtail will be safe!

b4_zpsaw6ubopz.jpg
Buy the left shoe at full price and get the right one FREE!!!!

Get shopping... it's time to go back to school IN STYLE!

Captain Jack Sparrow
    
Ever wonder what happened to John "Jack" Sparrow? Growing up on the Evean coast, everyone thought he'd be a doctor. After all, he kept talking about "me hearties"... No one thought he'd be a professional speller... as he flamed out in the spelling bee for using way too many "arrrrs" when spelling. Plus, when he was reciting the alphabet he spent way too much time at C! A college career seemed out of the question when he was suspended in high school for taking stuff out of Davy Jones' locker...

Davy-Jones-the-monkees-17400070-640-480.
"DUDE! Stay out of my locker!"

He was a pretty good athlete... on the basketball team he was well known for his hook shot. He was considered for a chef's position, which opened up his career to new possibilities. That is, until he had that accident with the arrrrrtichokes... So, he opened his own place. See if you can find it on the tour through the city...

2604_zps5zxwbzvq.jpg
Borders? We don't need no stinkin' borders!

2601_zpsdbpmyjzs.jpg
Good try. This is where he was fired from after the arrrrtichoke incident...

2602_zpsgcxuufbb.jpg
He spent time here to learn more... his grades were only in the high C's!    

2603_zpswnwb7xd1.jpg
He tried to work here as a chef but was fired because customer Polly did NOT want a cracker... (she wanted a tuna melt)

2606_zpspds0qvco.jpg
Outdoor World got him thinking about perhaps a career in seafood...

2608_zps4axwqpeb.jpg
So he went and bought some fishing gear...

2607_zpsavzyndo6.jpg
And stopped off for a frosty at Wendy's. He shivered his timbers...

2610_zpskio8rzo3.jpg
He spent the night here before heading out to sea to catch some fish off the coast of Treasure Island...

2611_zpstvltoroa.jpg
He walked the plank... sidewalk...  to get breakfast before he set out...

2609_zps1qpputyz.jpg
I'm not really sure why he headed back to Wendy's. I think he was disoriented because of wearing a roll of paper towels over his face. When asked why, he replied, "I've got a Bounty on me head!"

2605_zpsqop4wgmf.jpg
And now, finally, he has opened his own place. Wanna come over? It's a great seafood place. The food is nice and the wait staff all wears arrrrrgyle!

Suburban Jungle

Welcome to Namush, a mid-sized city big on amenities but short of coastline. Even though Evean Vansop is an island nation, not everyone gets a view of the sea. Namush is about 90 minutes from the shore. So, though there's plenty to do here, there's no surfing, swimming, snorkeling, or shark baiting. The teenagers are always looking for somewhere to hang out. Let's see what they turn up.

Crime Spree!

Crime Spree!

The abandoned mall is not just an eyesore (not only because of its dated 1960s architecture!) it is also a hotbed of crime. The businesses around it still bring in customers. but, people with naughtiness in their hearts hang out at the abandoned mall and cause mischief. Let's see what's going on.

The Doyacabsa Dragons are a great team! They win all the time. As a matter of fact, head coach Charlie Sheen has been known to remark to reporters after a game:

Hotel Fire!

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

Hotel Fire

There's a major hotel fire in Doyacabsa, the capital. In one of the suburbs, the Island Plaza Hotel has caught fire. And, the fire department has been very slow to react. The local station is commanded by Fire Marshal Bill and he has been reprimanded nine times already. Let's see what's happening now.

This is how he earned his most recent reprimand...

f1_zpsgyvnyla0.jpg

Here's the fire at the hotel, just off of the Murphy Highway

f2_zpscqcjpzpy.jpg

The fire engines don't seem to be coming and the fire is expanding!

f3_zpsymhxv3kp.jpg

All hotel guests have been evacuated. But, where is Fire Marshal Bill??

f4_zpszqbgkuda.jpg

FINALLY! The fire department has arrived! Of course Bill is putting out the fire at the shopping center instead of the hotel. The hotel was a complete loss and will have to be demolished and rebuilt. Lepley Land Center suffered moderate damage. Of course, if the fire was contained it would not have spread to the shopping center in the first place.

What do you think should happen to Bill now? Reprimand #10?

Nogow

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

Nogow

Nogow is a prosperous city on the northeast coast. It is a city built upon the twin foundations of commerce and culture. Trade with Schulmania provides a lot of income to the businesses in Nogow. And, the five universities and 34 museums provide a great reason for students of all ages and for tourists to arrive. Let's take a look.

Three of the biggest buildings in town are in the business district near the waterfront and have amazing views of the sea. Orange Computer, maker of the oPad and the oMac, is in one. Another is occupied by Schulmania's Feline National Bank. The third houses offices of Maxis.

A Winter Respite

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

A Winter Respite

The pleasant coastal town of Hatta is a popular destination for Evean residents looking for a weekend getaway. The temperate climate and abundance of fun activities makes it a great town to visit. It features the Schulmania's Cat Head Industries' subsidiary, Lucky Cat Casinos, owns and operates the town's casino.

screen568x568.jpeg

Jackpot!

Another distinctive feature of the town is the Zigzag Canal. It's the ziggiest, zaggiest canal in the nation... perhaps, the world. Why it was built in such an impractical pattern defies comprehension. Perhaps the engineers just felt like doing something different? Regardless of the reason, it makes for a pleasant stroll to meander alongside it.

You know how it is: you get settled in for a marathon of SC4 and are all comfy and ready to play and then it happens... "Do this!", "Do that!", "Get off that couch!"... You just got a list of chores to complete... the dreaded "honeydew list"... as in "Honey, do this... honey, do that..." So, now we are heading out all over town to get stuff done. Grrrr!

No matter where you live in Doyacabsa, the national capital, you are never too far from top-notch facilities. Capricorn Gardens is just one of those places.

You might live in a nice neighborhood...

Or not so nice...

Or really nice...

But, everyone has equal access to Capricorn Gardens, a beautiful spot for the beautiful people of the city. All of the cool kids hang out here. Come join us cool, beautiful people at the coolest, most beautiful park!

Driving Through Downtown

The national capital is Doyacabsa. It is the largest city with the most amenities. It also has extensive shopping and an exciting nightlife. If you have Night Fever (you like the night life, you like to boogie) come back after dark when the mimes go home and then the fun really starts!

1_zps2485104c.jpg

Jyvaskyla Towers luxury apartment complex is nearly finished now

2_zps2b3dc3b2.png

There are also luxury apartment buildings at the J. J. J. J. Smith Country Club, only a few blocks from the government center

3_zps51470f8e.png

There's plenty of residential housing in the center of town. It makes for easy commutes and plenty of late night fun. Not the most creative on the designs, though...

4_zpsda3d0eec.png

A lovely reflecting pool right in the heart of downtown gives residents and workers a great gathering spot. The ducks love it. but, the pigeons think it is not all it is quacked up to be...

5_zps2b9fa332.png

Office workers will rent a paddleboat to have a nice lunch hour. Come back after dark and they have demolition derby rules for the paddleboats. AWESOME!

6_zps0fd2e10a.png

9_zps1f58b755.png

There's fancier stuff over by the convention center. Plenty of hotels for when you wear yourself out shopping... or having fun!

7_zps01d58d97.png

When the Cavaliers are in town, go catch a game!

8_zps2ddb7ffc.png

Basketball games are always fun. The arena has free hotdogs on Tuesday nights.

Keep your eyes on the road while you drive... not the cool office buildings!

The Zigzag Canal passes by the round Jaakko Theater. Headliners tonight are Patsy Cline and Merle Haggard. Yep, you guess it: Hatta has more old time country names than Branson Missouri! The tower of St. Stephen's Church overlooks the scene.

The Lucky Cat Casino is at right, next to the hotel. Across the street is the Hatta Marketplace, where all sorts of good stuff can be bought.

Pizza Hut

EVS-Banner_zps451ce3f6.jpg

Pizza Hut

In the northwest of Evean Vansop lies the midsize town of Somoron. Its extensive, leafy suburbs are not noteworthy destinations for a tourist but they are a great place to live and raise a family. Several office parks and retail developments provide steady, good paying employment. Many high paying jobs were created with a company making 4-D printers opened a factory at the industrial park. All seems well, but there is some dissatisfaction with the new Pizza Hut at the mall. It is staffed by an all feline crew. And, felines are more interested in being served by humans than serving them. Let's see if we can find out what's going on.

13-1_zpse7076afc.jpg

The disenchanted customers live here in the Orange Walk neighborhood, not far from Acorn Hill Mall

13-3_zpsc1f86bb6.jpg

13-4_zps12818851.jpg

The mall looks a bit empty. The locals are boycotting it because they are not happy with the service they're receiving...

I'll show you the feline staff and you decide:

I don't see what they're complaining about. Do you?

13-5_zpsf6d29399.jpg

Apparently the customers think the service is too slow... they're all headed over to other restaurants. The residents haven't learned yet that cats are not around to serve others; they are there to be served and admired!

Downtown Doyacabsa

Today we have a short tour of the Central Business District of the national capital, Doyacabsa. This inland city of 2.5 million is the financial and cultural center of the nation as well as the seat of government. Let's see what's up in the vibrant city of Doyacabsa.

South of the government complex rises the international headquarters of Craigsnotes, Evean Vansop's premier online marketplace. There are imitators ("...list", for example... cough cough) but there's only one original!

More tall buildings... they sorta block out the view of the Mexican restaurant. I'm headed there for lunch today. Wanna come?

Schulmania Crossover Episode

Crossovers. The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan’s Island… The Jetsons Meet The Flintstones… Inspector Gadget teams up with Mario and Luigi… They all seem so… silly and contrived. Until now, of course. The Evean Vansop-Schulmania crossover is of course not any sort of shameless ploy. Of course not…

Scene 1: Feline Capital International Airport – Oak Ridge, Schulmania

17_zps624ca60a.jpg

Prince Excalibur, ruler of the Kingdom of Tenne, is headed to Doyacabsa, capital of Evean Vansop on a trade mission. He flies out on Nyan Airlines on a direct flight first thing in the morning.

Scene 2: Doyacabsa, Evean Vansop

The Prince arrives in the Evean capital. President Moyers greets the Prince and escorts him from the airport to his hotel in downtown. The entire top two floors of the Embassy Suits have been reserved for the Prince and his entourage.

A trade show at the arena is what drew the Schulminion delegation. With Excalibur making an appearance, parking around the arena has been restricted for security reasons. The many delegates and vendors are eager to see what new deals can be reached with Schulmania.

Two Evean companies, Hattula Construction & Development Corporation and Midnight Enterprises, owners of Feasty Foods and other companies, have developed proposals for joint ventures with Schulminion companies. They are searching for the royal OK to begin their projects.

Hattula seeks a royal concession to develop a transit route through the densely forested and undeveloped Schulminion interior all the way to the west coast, allowing a straight shot for Evean businesses to Schulminion markets without having to circumnavigate the continent or transship through Schulmauckland ports.

The Great Western Road would run from Blankenship in Middle Tenne as far as possible to the west. The road would be built at no charge to the regional government, in return for certain concessions. Among the concessions, the right to build and operate service plazas for travelers along the way and to build and to operate a sea terminal on the western coast when the road is complete.

Feasty Foods would like to open up a full scale cat food cannery and other cat food production facilities. The site they have selected is inland, along the Fresca River on Imperial Mookimian border and close to the city of Kolibri. The locals were not super excited that the company’s real estate agent was a dog. Thus, the site’s name became known as “Cave Canem”.

A proposed Fancy Feast cannery, which would employ some 2,000

A proposed factory for Tartar Control Pounce and Friskies Party Mix would employ several hundred as well

The delegation was taken to Hooter’s for wings to try and close the deal. We’ll see if the government approves these new proposals.
