  1. STEX 20,000 Files!

    Here it is, the 20,000th file uploaded to the STEX. I would have done something far more amazing if I knew, but this humble little landmark of the Maxis Quantum Dish is all I had. It has a nice menu icon, and it functions as a landmark, and that's about all, but I suppose its a symbol, a symbol of great things to come, to be, for the awesome ability of communication, and our awesome human imagination, so let it be a symbol, of hope, of betterment of the world and of humanity.

  5. Ionica - Your Guide to the Bicentennial

    Simul8ter8 - Please do. There is a lot of stuff to do, as you will see. LastTrueChamp - I think the ruins come from one of paeng's parks and Stonehenge comes from here. I found it while trying to get the CastleSet.dat for paeng's Castle Walk. westy177 - Thanks, glad you like it. dubaidude303 - Doesn't matter how many times you hit the button. Thank you dude. Kinderly - There are going to be a lot more. Thanks ggamgus - Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! SimCoug - Thanks Coug! The Lady of the Lake park is a BAT called BSC Avalon Park. supercitys354262 - Sweet, welcome to the future! gman28 - Hey Galahad, you are about to find out about some of Avalon's hottest attractions. Mastof - Yay indeed! FOOD There are hundreds of restaurants and bars in Avalon, but there are a few that stand above the rest.The Bicentennial is for all of Ionicans and the rest of the Sim world to enjoy regardless of class and status, therefore a vast majority of Avalon's best and highest class restaurants will be offering the courses on their menus at amazingly low prices. Too rich for your blood? Not during the Bicentennial, but make your reservations soon, these restaurants can only accommodate so many people. Nova Nova’s innovative, inventive and – of course – ground-breaking approach to cooking has created a maelstrom in the culinary world. The restaurant, for example, has taken the tired old concept of the amuse bouche and turned it into a dazzling array of one-bite starters that are alone worth the air fare to Avalon. Through the use of innovative cooking methods, Rene Redzepi’s former warehouse on the dockside has changed diners’ perceptions of Ionican cuisine. It is a restaurant of extraordinary pedigree, where passion and honesty is reflected in every mouthful. El Celler de Roca The passion for cooking and hospitality shared by the three Roca brothers is palpable, but the food is playful rather than serious – caramelised olives are brought to the table on bonsai trees – and Ionican ingredients are given centre-stage billing on the menu. Clever techniques complement simple flavour combinations designed to titillate the palate and the memory rather than confuse the mind. It’s clever stuff – but thankfully it is also utterly delicious. Per Se Perfect execution; constant evolution. These twin traits help define Per Se, Thomas Keller’s superb restaurant where Avalon’s moneyed élite dine in plush modernity overlooking Lady of the Lake Park. Every dish, while faultless in delivery, comes under constant scrutiny and development within the kitchen to ensure the daily-changing menu edges ever forward. The service, wine list and unshowy luxury of the space all conform to rigorously high standards, matching food that is as deeply considered as you’ll find anywhere. Alinea Alinea might just be the blueprint for the restaurant of the future. Chef-patron Grant Achatz (rhymes with jackets) has entirely rethought the eating-out experience: bite-sized dishes are suspended by wires and some creations are even served directly onto the table; the food is techniqueled, using gels, foams, powders and concentrations, all served in a slickly modern interior. An extraordinary man and an extraordinary restaurant. Dinner The conceit at Dinner involves the reworking of historical Altherian recipes from as far back as the 14th century by Blumenthal and chef Ashley Palmer-Watts. The food delivers big flavour and texture hits: diners can revel in the mandarin-tinged, supersmooth creamy chicken liver parfait of the meat fruit or the sweet fluffy indulgence of the Sauternes-soaked tipsy cake. These are dishes that will remain at the forefront of your taste memory-bank for years to come. The Fat Duck It is testament to Heston Blumenthal’s ability as a chef and to his incredible imagination that 17 years since opening The Fat Duck, the restaurant remains one of Ionica’s most exciting and original places to eat. The now iconic snail porridge with Ibérico bellota ham remains as fresh today as it has always been, while the golden ‘Mad Hatter fob watch’ that dissolves into a veal reduction to pour over a Mock Turtle egg is as delightful in the mouth as the theatre leading up to it. Tim Ho Wan Earning its Michelin star, Tim Ho Wan guarantees a packed dining experience. However, this very reasonably priced restaurant offers only the freshest of meat and makes their BBQ pork buns from scratch- which explains its popularity. Despite the 1-2 hour long queues, customers keep their taste buds satisfied by revisiting Tim Ho Wan. L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon Securing a highly coveted seat in 2 Michelin-starred master chef Joel Robuchon’s sophisticated restaurant will be one of the most rewarding dining experiences you’ll have in Avalon. His winning formula of inventive & intricately-crafted gastronomic ‘tastes’ using only the finest & freshest ingredients leaves diners from around the Ionica waiting in anticipation for a highly coveted seat. Caelum Boasting some of the most impressive views of Avalon’s skyline, this glamourous 29th-floor Avalonian institution is a modern, sophisticated sanctuary away from the chaos of buzzing streets below. Caelum is one of the best places to experience the dazzling Avalon evening city light show, where the fashionable, see-and-be-seen crowd come more for the views than the food. Hotels Baron Hotel The Baron, Avalon occupies the top nine floors of the L. Baron Tower. The hotel’s 178 guest rooms are spread across the 30th through 36th floors of the building; The Spa at and several of the hotel's restaurants and bars are located on the 37th and 38th floors of the building. A very deliberate design concept governs the look and feel of the hotel with an aesthetic predicated on the themes of woods and water.To that end, “the hotel has been conceived as a single, large, living tree, with the guestrooms as branches.” All rooms at the Baron, Avalon offer a view. The hotel houses a spa as well as numerous restaurants and bars, which include three Michelin Star restaurants. Additionally, the hotel contains a large ballroom, four banquet rooms and six meeting rooms. There is a Sanctuary Chapel at The Baron, Avalon as well.

This hotel redefines luxury and excellence in a city renowned for exceptional accommodation. With exemplary service, award-winning restaurants, unique facilities, excellent business services and an ideal location, this hotel has been awarded with the highest acclaim of all - guests returning time and time again. Xenia Hotel, Avalon Xenia is the Greek word for the concept of hospitality, or generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home. It is often translated as "guest-friendship" (or "ritualized friendship") because the rituals of hospitality created and expressed a reciprocal relationship between guest and host. Envisioned by style guru Constantin Red, this hotel has a private entrance and occupies 11 floors of Avalon's most iconic skyscraper, the Ziggurat. It has a deluxe spa and is a 5-minute walk from Avalon Mall. Rooms of understated elegance featuring curvy lines are decorated with Japanese tatami and luxury fabrics. Modern appliances include flat-screen TVs with DVD, iPod docking stations and a laptop safe. Xenia Hotel Avalon provides sophisticated dining options in each of its 7 restaurants. Red-Hashi serves Japanese cuisine with a modern twist and renowned Red Privé hosts resident and touring DJs. Guests can relax at the extensive Red Spa, offering personal treatments and sequential bathing, or enjoy a round of haute couture shopping at Red Galleria, retailing fashion, flowers and Italian pastries. Shopping Avalon Mall This second largest mall in the Ionica, is also known as 'Great Mall of Avalon'. With 6 million sq ft. of gross leasable area, it houses 230 escalators, a skating rink, over 1,000 shops and a huge space for restaurants. Aux Quatres Saisons Located in Avalon, Aux Quatres Saisons is one of the largest and most diverse shopping center which opened up more than four decades ago. Including an exposition center, hotels and theaters, the total complex is one of the most technologically advanced and high class in the Ionica. Sarah Towers Mall This tower complex Avalon houses a shopping center and two five star hotels. The building includes Ionica's largest indoor theme park, Cosmo's World and a massive IMAX 2D & 3D theater. Entertainment On the eve of the Bicentennial there will be hundreds if not thousands of performances across Avalon, but none will be bigger than these: High Contrast, Netsky, Camo & Krooked, and Danny Byrd @ The Camelot Entertainment Center High Contrast Netsky Camo & Krooked Danny Byrd Phoenix @ Club Ocean Joe Hisaishi will conduct and perform with the Avalon Philharmonic Orchestra during the festivities in the Bird's nest stadium. For those who will not be able to come to Avalon the William Baron Satellite Communication Network will be broadcasting the event across the entire SimWorld. See you at the Bicentennial!
