SPECIAL EDITION - 7th/8th Day of Christmas+Trixie!

Sign in to follow this  


Before you get to see the next update, I would like to inform you that the mega mosaic that I made (Update 44) has won me a Trixie!

We leave Newport on the next Translink Rail train. The route crosses over the the Sparkling River Bridge, commonly known as that diagonal bridge.

As the train slows down towards Cambridge, a light snow beings to fall.

After waiting in the snow a bit, a the bus service called Ride arrives and takes us to the Lordside-Illu'a National Laboratory and Museum. We get off and enter the Visitor's Center, the building on top of the picture.

Next to the Visitor's Center is the dome... thing... (I only did it to show Windspear Arena turn into something science looking)

We end our time in the laboratory with lunch at the Illu'a Modern Art Center.

In case you couldn't see it in Picture 3, I made a bus skin for this update. (We take the bus service back to Cambridge for some shopping later on in the day.)

***I need from you today...***
Like that snow? I'm trying this technique for the first time.
Continue shopping at Cambridge or chug on to Daloa?

Great update.
1) The snow looks amazing! I wouldn't have thought that was your first attempt.
2) I think we should stay in Cambridge before continuing to Daloa...

Again, brilliant update!

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO UPDATE THIS AGAIN?!?! Seriously! This hasn't been updated since 2010! Is it on hiatus or something?
