Prelude

A pivotal battle in the war with Queensferry is nearly upon us. The enemy has swept across Devonshire and threatens our largest city on the inner coast: Schulmericho.

How did we get in this situation and what can you expect? Read these clues which have been scattered about in Schulmania’s past for years, waiting to be put together…

Man, I remember the three hour tour, and how the tiny ships were tossed. Doesn't that storyline mark the beginning of my posts in Schulmania? I think it might... This mystery is beyond me at the moment. I can only think that the resourceful, smart man who took control of the lost colonists has been working behind the scenes to develop things that those who live in Schulmericho can use to fight off the evil Buggs...

Wow, great use of those dutch buildings.

I've been trying to grow those in my city too, but for some reason only a hand ful different versions will appear (even though I have over 30 in my plugin folder) and the ones that appear have a lot of repetition.

[b]NMUSpidey[/b] Indeed… a lot has changed since then, but of course these loose ends need to be tied one of these days…

[b]dscampbell[/b] Thanks! Welcome to Schulmania! Well, these Dutch buildings do tend to repeat... a lot. I try to vary lot sizes to help reduce that somewhat.
