Expansion and Opportunity

Sign in to follow this  



Huemsdale's has grown so big. It now supports a population of 29,000 people. Huemsdale has also introduced the new coastal highway project, the first mining fields, and the first town center of the entire region. Stores like Homedepot and Best Buy have opened up all over the city. There is more of an influx of mid and high wealth citizens then low wealth citizens. Apartments have also started to pop up all over the city. The first business district has also formed. Huemsdale Landing Strip is now called Huemsdale Airport after recent renovation to expand the airport. Now let's talk about the projects.
         First let us talk about the Coastal Highway Project. Our aim is to create a freeway/ highway system which will travel across the entire region and connect all the cities together. Right now the project is under development. We have already started the coastal highway system. The point of the origin for the highway is at the new town square of Huemsdale. Here is an outline of what we have done so far.


As you can see it does not connect to the western side of the island. As you can see also, the mining has begun. Our first priority is the clean the surface of the Trinity Crystal. Then we will go deep. The black dune you see on the bottom is our coal operation. There is a small deposit on the island and it wouldn't hurt to harvest it. 

         We have found more evidence on the sea bed supporting that there is another island containing this type of crystal. Our satellites have been programmed to find the island. When we find the other island we will also excavate the crystal.  Most likely we will find this island in Northern Russia towards the east. Now lets take a tour of the whole city.

A developing community on the main island.

wateru.pngWe have tapped the ground water creating this lake. The lake help fuels the reservoir which takes the water and filters it so it can be used as drinking water.  Now I need your help regarding a decision. 

Should we:

1) Construct housing in the mountains.

2) Leave it un-touched.

3)Should we blast it to search for crystal deposits. (Not a certainty we will find it)

You are dismissed.

Well, you don't need to blast into it. This is what happens when dangerous and reckless options are made affordable. You can always drill for samples, and THEN blast if appropriate. Certain sedimentation should provide information if it contains precious metals and other shiny things like crystals. And if it doesn't, it SHOULD!!!

As for anything done on the mountains? Well, with the view given in the last picture, along the existing road, it would require great effort in terraforming the land, which again provides dangerous blasting. If something MUST be done, either between urban/suburban expansion and crystal mining, I guess, whatever ends up being cheaper, and provides better tax revenues.

What's the point to build more house for workers/miners if there is nothing to extract ? Let's try to find more crystal then we may hire some miners and lodge'em . Moreover, we could find some ancient relics or bones ...

Btw, mountains are spreading all over the island. We got enough space to meticulously dig a part of the mountains and... blast the other one ! :D
