Huge Download list is coming after U-Build-It Special Edition (UBISE?)

U-Build-It Special Edition - Rail Trip Day 1

We start our trip by boarding the Southbound Adraman Local. Nothing very interesting here because we have seen this picture before.


Somehow, the horses near this farm are attracted to the train, and have magically walked through the fence. Animal automata is(are?) awesome.


A bit further south, the train crosses the Invernessen Railroad Bridge. Sometimes, the bridge and the Route 27 bridge get flooded during heavy rains.


Scenic Wilderness. I should have made the rail and the road curve at different areas here.


In case you were lost, here's a region view of where the train is right now. There is some civilization near the southern border.


This is where I figured out that I can use a train generator instead of UDI to make pictures. The train passes a rest stop, and almost hits a truck passing it. The at-grade intersection here is actually illegally built by the nearby farm. All at-grade intersections in Illu'a must have flashy warning signals, or a person manning the intersection with a whistle.


Here's how I'm going to make minor cities. The population of the next town is greater then 73. This is an old picture.


At the start of the Evening, we arrived at the first stop in Newport, and unloaded our baggage. Although having a population 1/5 the size of Invernessen, there is a historical landmark near the town.


There is a shuttle bus timed with train arrivals to take people to Newport Point. It's cheaper than taking MaxisTaxi to the point.


We cross the Sparkling River to get to Newport Point. Most of the traffic on this bridge is either tourists or freight.


The bus stops at the entrance to Newport Point. We have to walk the rest of the way up.


The trail winds up the slope, eventually reaching the event of the night, the...


Newport Point Fire ritual. 30 minutes of chanting, dancing, and fire for free.


There's also a lookout where you can view the Sparkling River and the trees. If you look up, there are stars.


Some of the people decided to stay in the only hotel in Newport. Others decided to stay at Newport Point and camp for the night.


The plan for tomorrow is to eat breakfast at the Newport Cafe, then take a 9:00 southbound Adraman Local. If we go fast enough, we can get to Daloa (Second largest city in Illu'a) by the end of the day.

***I need from you today...***

-VOTE: How often should we stop and explore?

-If you have an idea for the trip, PM me. If it requires Plugins, send me the links to the plugins.

Enjoyable cj! I love the concept.  Wish I had a contribution.  Do they provide product from the farm at the end of the canal at the Newport Point fire pit?

Lordy Lord:  Lordside is a good name for a town. Better than my method of picking random locations on Google Maps.
AngelOne:  The replica ritual is only fire. Blame the Citizens Against Virtually Everything (CAVE) for not allowing farms to be part of the ritual.
seanmcelholm:  I'm not sure about the freeway, bot I'll get a town named after you.
Pathfinder-1:  Thank you.
