    So fellow builders, I must say I really only know half of you. But from what I`ve seen on the server and by the applications I think we have some real talent in this group. I look forward to building with you all. I`ll be online a few hours every day this week but not as much as I`d like. Anyways..

    Now I don`t know all your preferences or ideas so do enlighten me :) I know Ben is working on Kark` but that`s about it. Now there isn`t any major projects in the works but for developing the world itself. This is really a good thing, the world is a large place after all. So far it consists of Therim, the main city with village. Kark to the south (sry about the spelling Ben) with castle and Lumsk at distance to the north. As such there is both room and need for additional cities, villages and everything else the world holds. We are going for coherence with the map, meaning that things must work together. Cities should be spaced quite a distance apart. Villages should be at "natural" sites and so on. Other than that we have quite some leeway as with building styles and looks. As long as it works and is visually pleasing :P

    In sum this means that everyone should be able to do what they want and hopefully it will contribute to the project/map/world.

    So, ideas anyone? What should we do? What particular kind of epicness do we pursue?

    I look forward to seeing you all online :)

    Head of the A-Team? Cool :) Then I get to smoke cigars and travel to central America and help unsettled villagers.

    I love it when a plan comes together :P

    Anyways, I wanted to give a small update on what I`ve been doing up north of Therim, the construction of the city of Lumsk. It started out as a vague solo-project but I`ve gotten some help from reesylou for roads and decorations and Dan has started working on what will be some massive docks/port facilities.

    Now, as the city is a continuation of the project I was working on before joining TBC, a project in beta. The buildings are as such pre-fabricated, but pimped-up and re-blocked in some cases. These prefabs are now placed in a rough shape of a town. Interiors are not done, infrastructure is missing, terraforming and details and so on, remains. How the city will develop further on is hard to say atm. Some newer buildings have been added and more are needed. Any self-respecting city also need surrounding villages, farms, castles, civil buildings, oddities and more. The surrounding terrain makes for a metropolis if wanted. It will take some work. But who knows?

    So, thats about it so far. I am becoming somewhat bored of building in this style so I am thinking of starting up something different. Luckily we have a whole world to build on :) Ideas are always welcome.

    IGN: MrKadmon
    Usual Playing Time (GMT): 20.00 - 00.00
    Area(s) of Focus: Building, planning and some terraforming. I mainly build as much as I can and develop cities that way :)
    Preferred Build Style: Nordic, Fantasy, Medieval so far, other styles to follow in the Asian_city.

    I would like to continue developing the city of Lumsk. It will be a scandinavian/fantasy themed city much like the living districts of Therim. I will make a showcase of it soon here on the forums, once I get the time. I would also like to build elsewhere, small villages and such.

    Previous Works:



    Well.. Large parts of Therim really :P



    Cya around :)

    Welcome to the project then :) The town of Lumsk, as you may have noticed, is just getting started. Its being filled with a lot of re-pimped and prefabricated buildings that will form the basis so to say. As of right now there really is no "final vision" other than it being a port city and presumably very, very big. I think the current layout will be a but a district or two of the final product.

    If you feel inspired and up to it I could really need some help finishing it :) A lot of buildings and districts remain to be both planned and built. It doesn`t even have a castle yet and lot of empty lands to fill. Suggestions are always welcome.

    Anyways its good to see new faces around the server

    HI everyone.

    Real life has been getting in the way for my building lately. Pesky stuff like family commitments, work and living. I haven`t logged as many hours on the server as I would like.

    I`ll try to get on the server when I can but it seems I will be less active the coming week.

    Anyways :) We will still be ready for beta-release september.

    Happy building!

    Just a small update

    It has been some lonely days at the server this last week, activity has been low. The active ones however have put in a lot of good work and the city creeps ever closer to being completed. Space is filling out and there is little room left for new builds the challenge is still getting all those interiors done. I have managed a few and put in quite some hours doing detail work. I`ve also added some houses.



    The Schadenfreude Heights has finally, courtesy of reesylou, gotten a central square. It is nearly done now.



    Schadenfreude neighbours the main university building being constructed by miuoy, and it is looking to be epic :D



    The financial district, academic district in background are both close to completed now



    So yeah, the hard work remains..

    Also. I urge everyone to come with wishes and requests for future builds, we will be making plans for the map and need ideas. For my part I have already started a major city to the north and other members are eager to start their own. As soon as we get Therim done we can start building for real.

    So yeah, happy building everyone :)

    Awesome :)

    And yes, the locations I have in mind should be large enough to accomodate city-sized builds :)

    Happy building, I better get back to work..

    Beautiful work craec :)

    And rest assured, there is always room on the map for builds such as these. As to location? the map is slowly being explored and I have found a few beautiful spots that would work well for your village i think. There are also some locations I would really like to see being populated as to better connect the different build-sites, if you are interested that is. But this all depends on what direction you are taking as in size, type of settlement (coastal, inland, hidden, open)

    Also. Work on the second greater city (to the north) is picking up pace. Although not elvish it "may" be more compatible with your build style if you want to connect your village to that one.

    Luckily we have a whole map to populate so I`m sure we will find a proper home for your very stylish builds :)

    A very good post Dan and I heartily agree. We definitely need more management as we enter the next phase of expansion. And equally important we need proper planning. We are a fairly large clan atm event though not all members are as active. I do however think activity will pick up once we start the world. Especially since this is the chance to get ones ideas incorporated into the world. I think we are looking at a continent sized map eventually. 4-6 major cities 10-50 villages and other locations? Just throwing out some numbers really as they serve to illustrate that we can incorporate a large number of different building styles and themes.

    As such I would really like for everyone to state their desires, so to say. And that we make a wish-list of builds (like cities and villages) to include. We really need to know what we are about to undertake and to weave it all together into some sort of cohesievness. I think we should have some meetings regarding our future, in the near future..

    As to the map you suggested Dan I like it. I understand its preliminary but are you aiming for a pangea like continent? I think we could do with more. Anyways.. Its going to take a lot of work to get a map of that magnitude finished and I don`t think we should postpone building until then. Even though we are not yet finished with Therim we really need to start something new soon, like in the next few weeks. We have many idle clanspeople, and a lot of creativity being pent up ;) In lieu of that I think we should really explore our current map as there is a lot of unrendered terrain left. Who knows? Maybe the map can be terraformed closer to Dans vision?

    And lest we forget, Therim. (I`m happy the city got a name now :) A shame I should win it as I already am a member, so the winnings are up for grabs, if no one claims it I will build myself a tower, a proper tower :D )

    There is much to be done until September-release. There is a lot of detailing left to do, roads, stalls, squares and builds, basically all the trappings of a city.. There has been some stellar work done these last weeks and a lot of cool builds in the work. The place within the walls is filling up. As much as I would love to start something new I force myself to finish this.. We are close. Its just all those small things that needs finishing..

    Small update as every post needs a screen:

    Been working the academic district lately besides small stuff all over the place



    Redid a hill and topped it off with even more builds.

    So.. I won`t be as active the coming weeks as I have been this last month. Real life must be dealt with too..

    But I`ll get on as much as I can and join in the fun :D

    Happy building everyone!

    Oh.. And do send in suggestions and wishes for our coming world, chances are we`ll end up doing it to epicness :D
