  1. Should capital punishment be humane?

    So, something very relevant to this discussion is happening in my state:   http://www.pitch.com/FastPitch/archives/2014/01/17/lets-bring-back-firing-squads-for-death-row-prisoners-suggests-missouri-rep-rick-brattin   I can't bring myself to see firing squads as anything other than barbaric, if there is no humane option then I don't think we should be performing executions at all. Even the worst criminals are human, and I can't bring myself to think of efficiency and cost when the taking of a human life is concerned. Honestly, if punishment is what you're after, life in prison seems to be a better punishment.   The fact that a politician in my state is advocating this is not at all surprising, we seem to be surging backwards at an alarming rate around here lately, but that doesn't make it any less disturbing to me. 
  2. Show us your... Nature!

    Maybe I can help get this moving again as well? A little something from an update that I have never gotten around to finishing.  
  3. What City Should You Live In?

      Hmm.... I don't know about that. Interesting.
  4. Not Only Spätis and Kebabs

    This is a spectacular update. That last picture especially is stunning.   Awesome job with this.
  5. My CJ Progress is going to be on hiatus for a while. I'll have a post with more detail later in the actual CJ, but it's just too much for me to handle by myself now that classes are started.

  6. Oravský hrad

    I'd really like a version without modeled trees, but this looks very nice.
  7. Spisská Kapitula

    Very nice, thank you for including aversion without the modeled base. I wish you had a version of your castle without the base as well.
  8. Update Two - Home

    [quote name="Lordyboy96" timestamp="1376129178"]Action 1: Newcomer [b]Charles Lord[/b] clears land on the shore upstream of the settlement, of suitable size for a cottage and small fishing pier/jetty [/quote] I should inform you that there is a large creek that joins the river just upstream from the town. Anything upstream along the river will only be accessible by boat.
  9. Update Two - Home

    NOTE: It is important that you read the update before voting in the above poll(s). Images will enlarge when clicked. Status Update Updates will now be posted every second Friday. If this is your first time reading Progress I recommend you go back to the first update (I call it Update Zero), which includes some important information about how this works.There is a link to it on the right sidebar. Update Two - Home The date is March 15th, 1859. The season is Spring. The current population of the settlement is 122, with 98 adults and 24 children. Most of the citizens of the progress settlement have settled in and starting going about their new lives. A vote was held on what to build in a designated common area and the people chose to set up a public market. This Market has become the center of activity in the new town and has attracted traders from afar. Farther down a few people have made homes near the site of the original camp. The waterfront will no doubt become a busier area once a proper landing is built. A couple members of the Progress expedition have decided to settle outside of the town itself. Marshal Thibodeaux opted to construct a small cottage and farm along the river downstream from the town. John Harding built himself a hunting cabin in an open clearing north of the town. After the first round of claims the settlers decided to draft up a new map showing the property holdings in the town. Join Action: To join Progress click the image below. Character Action: There are four possible actions for characters in this update. Action 1: Pick a lot and settle in the town or clear your land outside of town. (Only if you have not yet done so) Action 2: Build a home or shop on the land you selected. (Only houses can be built outside of town) (Only if you have not yet done so) You may only do one of the following: Action 3a: Claim more land outside of the town and build a home or farm. (Only if you already have selected property in a previous update) Action 3b: Apply for more land in the town. This requires a valid reason and will be voted on in the next update. To perform a character action reply in the comments using the form "Character name selects lot x and builds a shop." Community Poll: Build docks or expand street network? Building a dock will allow for more trade while expanding the street network will open more land up for settlement in the town. The next entry will catch up with the settlers in the Summer of 1859.
  10. DK 35 One Financial Plaza / Gold Building

    Incredible. I love the glass, you did an excellent job of keeping the gold tint down to a level that I think looks really nice. My favorite part, though, is the roof. Awesome work.
  11. Update 104 | Das'gotn | Nata

    Really awesome work, I love the canal and the grey concrete sidewalks and plaza do an excellent job of tying it all together. 
  12. Update One - Settling In

      You can only do one of each action per turn. In all these cases I will perform the first action you list and your second action will be carried out next update.
  13. Update One - Settling In

      Lot 34 has already been chosen. I also don't have you down as having a Character.   ---   Now for a couple general announcements:   If you do not pick an option your character will build a house on a random lot. If you choose a building but pick a lot that's taken you'll get a random lot.    Also, I'm not going to allow a character to build something inappropriate like a Brothel, if you do that you just get a house.
