725 DownloadsMaio is the easternmost of the Sotavento islands of Cape Verde. Maio is located south of the island of Boa Vistaand east of Santiago. The island is known for its sandy beaches and large forest, which is unusual for Cape Verde. This map is nowhere near as challenging as my Jan Mayen map, however, just as much work went into it. This map has an incoming/outcoming railroad connection, as-well as some left-over mining railroads in the mountainous area. One mini-mountain range has a small railroad bridge, used to connect the two ore-filled hills together (not present IRL). Tropical theme, right-hand drive.
Welcome, welcome! The Atlantic Federation, officially the Union of the Veratlantean States is and has been a member of the Alliance of Independent Nations for almost 5 years now. It is a Union of 7 Republics over the 'subcontinental' Veratlantic Archipelago, in the Atlantic Ocean. There are a lot of complicated details about how exactly it works. I'll leave those to tell you on the go... But you can always check the infoboxes to the sides! How it started, and why now? Since I discovered Simtropolis and the community, I have been devoted to creating my own country for the world to see. I mustered up all ideas and decided to start a big what-if-land in the middle of the Atlantic. But it needed to make sense in the world, I didn't want it to be alone. I thought it was a good idea to join a CJ Union, the AIN. Early May 2010 and I got my Junior Membership and an avalanche of ideas for my Atlantic nation. In these 5 years, I learned from some of the finest CJers and decided to continuously improve my CJ, in all aspects I could. Now the result of all these years is the Union of Veratlantean States, a fancy name for the "Atlantic Federation v6.0", which btw has been my sole endeavor during all these years. No other CJ's, no side projects. What style will this be? The AF is very diverse. It is made of 7 Republics with very singular histories. After all, I think its the diversity of it that made me stick with it. There's Dutch, Americanized, French, British, Latin-Iberian-Mediterranean architecture, along with some communist blocks in the previously red republic of New Oren. There is a touch of Hong-Kong and Tokyo in some of its east coast largest metropolises, since they tend to be very dense. Here's what I mean in this WIP image: Besides that, the AF has a beautiful geography, with extensive climatic variety. I will do my best to portray its beautiful beaches, mountains and countryside. La Nouvelle Aquitaine, is truly beautiful, IMO. Can't wait to drive you through it! Hint hint, they speak French there! Ah the South... The Portuguese/Spanish speaking, ever-summer south... We have Overseas Territories too, like the gelid Greenlandic island of Svärda! Where we maintain not-at-all suspicious activities... How will the Updates be like? Most of the updates will fall in one of the below: 1: The Discover kind of update These will be narrated updates, in which we'll travel the federation using its means of transportation and following the stories of a character or more. 2: The BBC VBN kind of update These updates will be documentary-like, narrated updates, covering the most various topics about the AF. 3: The WIP kind of update These will be Work-In-Progress updates and teasers mostly so I can ask for your help to keep improving the CJ and also try suggestions left in the comments, if there are any. 4: The TV/Media kind of update These will be brought mainly from the Alliance itself and will feature newspaper articles to tell what's happening in the AF and its CJ neighborhood. Accidents, elections, music festivals, sports, international events, these fall here. 5: The Random Kind Whatever else comes to mind! How often? I will try to have them be regular, one a week, but certainly I will keep you informed about what's going on with it. I'm currently on a "gap semester" since my college schedule went out of sync as I will be moving across hemispheres this year. So basically it means lots of free time. Wiki Support Beware that I will do my best to provide extensive Wiki Support to the CJ, thanks to the AIN's amazing wiki engine. So every city, state, and region you visit and most things mentioned about the Federation will have its own Wiki article, to further enhance the depth of the CJ and explain details too lengthy to post here. It is currently being revised, so bear with me if you're interested in that. And finally... I will do my best to keep those of you joining me immersed, with fancy graphics, mood boosting music and attention to detail. Suggestions are most welcome, and I hope to learn a lot by exposing the AF to an even larger community. Welcome, to the Atlantic Federation! Thanks for viewing! and if you're coming with, See you soon!
