Utilities Part 1: Flares Nuclear Power Facility

Lost Realist



After a long pause...

We'll be taking a look at some of the utilities that the city and the region of Josephinia rely on, as no modern life will function without the basic amenities of electrical power, clean water and waste management.

To begin this look around the region we start southeast of Beakpoint Bay, on a peninsula called "Flares Island" where the Flares Nuclear Power Facility produces enough output day and night to feed Josephinia, it's region and the surrounding areas with electricity.

As always, you can click on the pictures for a closer look.

To speed up commutes, Highway 14 had an access point installed that serves the NPP.

I hope you enjoyed this first part of our trip around the important facilities in the Josephinia Metropolitan Area as much as I enjoyed taking you on it. Come back in just a few days for a look at waste management and disposal facilities, what a golly good time to be had!

Please take note of

set that this update obviously centers on and that I have nothing but praise for.

As always, leave comments if you liked something or if you see room for improvement. I try to respond and take everything in that you guys throw my way. Keep being awesome!

Thank you guys so much. :) The new cosmetic pieces for RHW-3 to give you turning lanes and large intersections were probably the greatest thing to come around in terms of NAM for me in the last updates. No more boring rural intersections!
