takemethere: Yes, I like that one as well. It is the iBots Interplanetary Headquarters, which is not on the STEX as a separate file. I downloaded as part of Terring's Barsoom Project, found here:If you want to download it, don't be afraid of the huge file size; you'll be deleting about half of the files. The buildings aren't realistic (they're SimMars buildings), so it's best not to download if looking for realism.
Benedict: Thanks! I got caught up in other video games... but I'm back!
Hey guys! Sorry for the long hiatus; it sure does make me look bad. Summer has stolen my time away from SC4, but I promise to try and update this a bit more regularly!
This update will feature the region's capital city, Malaby. The city is home to approximately 84,000 Sims, and is a part of the Colbertson metro area. Originally, the city was a bedroom community for farmers in Colbertson, but as the farms were torn down, the city fell into decay. The city tore down the abandoned neighborhoods until a nice, rectangle-shaped town was left.
Once Colbertson grew to a large city, the government decided to move to a new city to improve Congressional efficiency. The new choice was Malaby, just outside of the city.
The city government voted to tear down the central part of the city, where the new government buildings would then be placed. The new city would then be built around the existing plan. By then, Colbertson had grown to the foothills of the Malabian Plateau, on which the city is located.
The Palace of the Government, which contains most of the region's government. It contains most of the region's departments, and it houses the royal family. All of your complaints about the state of the nation are directed here, but the royal family doesn't care. That's why they hire people to work here...
The Supreme Court of South Devon, which is awfully small. It is located just east of the city's business district and marks the eastern border of the government-controlled area of the city. It was constructed by famous architect Pierre Wonka DesVu, who happened to like gold. So much that he made the dome pure gold, as well as gild it. There have been numerous attempts to steal the dome, but none have succeeded. We're sure it wont happen. Most likely won't. Positive. Just a note, the Court does not take cases just because your pizza from the shop down the avenue didn't have pineapple on it...
The downtown area of Malaby, located to the east of the Palace of the Government. These buildings were hand-selected to make the city's small business district. The district has yet to obtain a flashy nightlife, however. Plans to make a new nightclub are underway, though.
