    A very fair, nonspecific warning: nobody here wants creative enemies.

    Also, I'm sitting on top of a skyscraper, staring at the Chrysler building. Life is good rn.

    Now there's a helicopter floating near the Chrysler building.

    I'm going to go check on my laundry.

    The FRIENDLY competition has resumed, but a compromise has been reached between the two companies.
    Best wishes to Sob on the construction of his new station.

    Edited:

    As for Spawn Development, Spawn will be giving out block grants of resources to projects that, "add density to the skyline." This implies Mid-High rises, but nothing too tall for now (this does not mean people can't build tall, just that we won't fund it.).

    Fulsy, what resources do you need to complete the stadium? I kind of want to see it finished and if I can donate construction material, I will.

    The compromise was basically that the station will be demolished, and Old City Terminal will be built instead.

    Edited:

    The Williams has been completed, with an altered design:


    My next item of business is one, last, final attempt at modernism, and then work will continue on the Wildeholt Line (Technically work has already begun, as I have reserved a plot in Wildeholt and have began evaluating the land).

    must admit ive been p critical of the spawn over haul (removing people's stuff) but that does look pretty damn cool. An art deco thing with cyan glass + sand stone (yellow or orange) behind duck tower would look good.

    I think you'll be happy to know that no ones property was removed for the construction of this building (except a 4x3 shack that only had a single chest with an armor plate in it)!
    Also wool wants to work with orange sandstone when he gets back, I think.

    Are there still plans to alter Lori's place? i.e trim back the wall so we can build some tall buildings there?

    I don't see a need to trim back Lori's place at all, especially when Spawn has plenty of other land to spread toward.

    Pushing back Lori's property is a last resort kind of thing, especially now that we have the whole STC plot to work with (conor is retiring)

    I think it would be fine if we just redid the facade for Lori's cobblestone wall. I don't think the structure needs to be altered.

    This is why I only ever build medieval buildings no matter where I play.

    most architects build buildings to impress other architects rather than to make places people want to live and work in

    I would like to propose demolishing the STC farm that extends over the river, and moving it to oldtown as a public farm. Maybe even build a nice windmill like on the old server.

    I can handle the demolition and river beautification, but I'd like to get someone to take up the farm if I can.

    Agreed. It would be good to revert that river back to how it was without squared chunks taken out of it. And an outdoor farmland in Oldtown would be great.

    Andrews PO Building has been topped out. Glass cladding will go up soon.
    I'm really liking building this. Since I'm putting up the structural stuff first, followed by the glass cladding, it's like building an actual modern skyscraper.

    Sorry for double post, but the Andrews Port Authority Building is structurally complete:

    I will personally furnish this one since it's all glass and would look stupid without stuff inside.
    Anyone who wants an apartment in either of the residential sections can have it if they PM me. I'll explain more about how the building is laid out later, as the structure actually defines where the residential and commercial sectors of the building lie.

    GONDOR USONIA CALLS FOR AID!

    No, but seriously though, I'm running out of glass, red stained clay, dark oak and acacia wood.

    I will need those materials to complete Usonia Center. To facilitate its continued construction, I will be establishing a donation plaque in the lobby, alongside other benefits that will be detailed later as stretch goals.

    With luck, and your help, I will finish this tower this week.

    Also, I'm working on a change to the zoning code for spawn. More on that soon.

    An above-ground pathway between Wildeholt and Furcifa is now open. I think you can travel between the two on horseback in around five or six minutes. Nether travel is still less than two, but why not take a scenic route?

    never more have i read of somebody so inhuman and disturbing, he is truly the single worst architect in human history - especially because of his philosophy and musings. such a man cannot be said to possess a soul

    Decided to look him up since you mentioned him.

    Seems like he was playing Minecraft long before us:

    I'm reading Towards a New Architecture right now, what are you talking about?

    To truly understand modernism requires a thorough understanding of the political and social machinations of the early and middle 20th century. Corbusier was no more insane than Frank Lloyd Wright, both men were products of their time and politics. They both had grand visions of self-importance, but also pioneered a lot of significant advances in building technology. Truthfully, Corbusier is far more human than any of the European and Russian architects that copied his work for the Bloc states. (I'll grant that his plan for bulldozing half of Paris and replacing it with massive concrete block towers was a bit excessive, though.)

    No, you want a truly evil architect, you look up Mies Van Der Rohe, and read all about the Farnsworth House controversy. Creating a glass prison for the client as punishment for ending their affair... That's cruel and heartless.

    More suggested reading: The Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns, a debate pre-Internet shitposting over French Baroque vs Louis XIV modernism(!) that took place in the footnotes of textbooks written for the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture.

    That bridge has always been a death trap since I made it. There is generally a Ghast each time you cross it. We would be safer to remake it as a cobble tunnel bridge.
