In this update we're going to see the new research and assembly center of Insulo's space ageny (ISPERA), South Shore Military Base. It is located on the southeast corner of the Island in one of the least populated areas in the entire country. There are no launch pads due to Insulo's high latitude, all missions will be launched from a launch pad in Gansbaai.

The road to the center base is currently being rebuilt where it was washed out by an intense rainstorm.


Speaking of storms, as reach the gate to the base the sky is beginning to cloud up.


The rain begins as we see the assembly warehouses where rockets, satellites, and landers will be built.


The rain has become a downpour and begun to mix with sleet as we look at the docks including the patrol boats that protect ships that dock at the base.


The storm finally dies down as we look at the mission control center.


And last but not least as the rain stops, we see the research facility where scientists are currently planning Insulo's first space mission.


Hope you enjoyed this update, next week, unless change my mind, we will explore the city of Scio, home to Vilhelmo Forgisto University and the USNW Ministry of Health, Safety, and Education.

Hello Everyone, finally a complete update, this one I've been teasing for a while, my first update on my very lose re-creation of the Island of La Palma, which I'm really having fun with, it let's me do something different than I usually do, and gives me a lot of creative mobility. This doesn't mean Insulo is dead, this is still part of Insulo, and we'll get back to the mainland eventually, better to spend winter in the tropics anyway Smile .

So, for this first view of La Palma we'll explore the area around the little town of Las Mariposas, wedged between beautiful beaches and the towering volcano that produced their glimmering black sand.

We'll start High on the mountainside, in one of the numerous nature preserves on the La Palma. The island supports a vast variety of Flora, some of that variety can be seen here.



We follow the road down the hillside, and to the entrance to the preserve, where a small picnic area for the people who come to see the natural wealth of the Island.



Now we move on to the pleasant little town most visitors to the park use as a home base, Las Mariposas. They take advantage of the many rooms rented out by local families, where they can get homey comforts and a low price.



As you can see, the town has it's own charms, it's been here for hundreds of years nearly unchanged, the whole town is protected as a historic site, especially guarded is it's church, built in the year 1523.



Oh, we almost forgot the best part of Las Mariposas, it is close to one of the best most pristine and beautiful beaches you will find anywhere, with it's black sand sparkling in the tropical sun.



Well that's all for now, hope you enjoyed this little tour, I enjoyed making it.

Welcome the city of Alcelago on the eastern border of Insulo with Posillpo, a portion of the city is actually in Posillipo. This is an interesting city, in 1934 a massive earthquake destroyed every building in the city except the tiny chapel now in the center of the Main Street Plaza, and drained Alcelago's namesake lake. The city was rebuilt in the style of the time with large parkways to allow for easy walking and space for events.. The city is the former capital of Republic of Bascla, which joined Insulo after the earthquake devastated the country. Bascla is currently seeking representation as a separate province from Los Lagos.


An overview of the center of Alcelago, with the rebuilt Basclan Capital Building at the top and the Survival Chapel at the intersection near the bottom.



The newest buildings in Alcelago glisten in the sun. From left to right you see the Atlantica Financial Branch, the Ramos and Sons Architectural Firm, the Sunspire Hotel, and at the bottom right the top of the new TeleInsulo Headquarter, which moved to Alcelago in July 2010. On the far left you can see the Villate Real Hotel, one of the most renowned hotels in all of Insulo.




The Capital subway station and the Border arch that stands between Insulo and Posillipo. The border between Insulo and Posillipo is a completely open border.



A stretch of gravel mountain road outside of Alcelago, drivers have to be careful here as there is a chance of falling rocks.


Hope you enjoyed this update, it was again something I hadn't really tried before with the mountain but I think it came out great, I like working in this region as much if not more than in La Palma, so you're likely to see a few updates at least from here.

In this update we are again visiting the border city of Alcelago, which straddles the border between Insulo and Posillipo. All the areas showm in this update are inside Insulo.

(Note: Just to point out, I do have Chip's Permission to display parts of Posillipo I have created)

...Yaaaaaawn... Time to wake up. Wow it's foggy outside, I can barely see the dried pond from my cabin windows.


Well that fog lifted quckly, it's now a bright monday morning, here you can see an overview of the area we'll be exploring today.


*Eating Sounds* Mmmm, Nothing beats the breakfast burrito at Winnie's Drive-In, the Drive-In is famous for good food delivered quickly, and is a popular hangout for the students from the High School just down the street.


Here you see the Library of Bascla and the First Basclan Bank, with a newer quaint shopping district in the background. The first Basclan Bank was one of the first buildings rebuilt after the earthquake, and helped finance much of the relief effort by the charity of it's founder F.K. Morgani.


Alcelago General Hosptital Towers over it's surroundings. Built in 1963, it is still one of the largest Hospitals in Insulo, and people come from all over the country to visit it's Cardiac Specialists.


Finally we see the fuel behind all the small shops and restaurants in this area, Alcelago Central High School, the largest High School in Alcelago.



As always, I hope you enjoyed this update. If you have any questions feel free to ask them, and comments are much appreciated.

-Jon

This region in Insulo is very different from the rest of the country, because of it's isolation in the mountains. Another reason it's so different is because the earthquake destroyed it in the 30's, so it gives me an excuse to build an American styled city in a mostly Mediterranean country. Very Happy

I felt like starting up a little story in my CJ, centering around an event and using the news to communicate the story, along with a bit of description by me of course. Hope you like it. This first section won't have much commentary because it's essentially an introduction, plus a picture is worth a thousand words.




This Afternoon Insulonians were watching their favorite TV shows when this popped on the screen.



For Clarification Purposes, Andalusia is a country south of a group of Islands owned by Insulo, and a former possession of Insulo.

Then just minutes later President Clarke, clearly enraged by the "attack" held an impromptu press conference about the incident.



Then about half an hour later they were stunned when this news broke.



To be continued.....

I really love stories in city journals, especially those where the pictures do the talking, as you said Wink I'm really on my toes on what happens next. Hopefully this party doesn't attack an Insulonian possession...

13 Re: Insulo Official City Journal on Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:34 pm

This is to supplement my post on SimSports...

It pleases the Emperor-Regent of Grand and Belluterra to send the hospital ship HRGMNHS Dove of Peace, with 75 nurses and 125 doctors aboard, and a capacity for up to 1,500 patients, to administer aid to the wounded in this barbarous and cowardly attack on an Insulonian vessel, with no notification sent, and with no declaration of war which might justify this. The Grandian Army has also been put on high alert, naval upgrading programs are being given increased funding, and the number of voulenteers for the Armed Forces is now higher than average.

Insulo will not currently accept any assistance, we believe all survivors have been accounted for and have been taken to the military hospital in San Sebastian. More information on the number of casualties will be announced in a press conference at the hospital later today.

No nonsense update this time:



This morning the doctors at the military hospital in San Sebastian held a press conference to discuss the dead and injured in the attack on the BNI Hidalgo.



Later in the day more stunning news surfaced, and people began to think they were at war...



...then they finally had someone to blame...





...And now they are truly at war.


More Coming Soon...

Hoped you liked this, and again the minimal text is on purpose, you'll get a huge debrief later in case you missed anything. Also I hope to keep up the rapid updates (compared to my normal posting patterns. We'll also explore Paxí as a normal cj update eventually.

Yes there is a typo in the last image, sorry, but it occasionally happens in the real news sometimes, so I guess I'll just leave it.

Well we're taking a break from the media barrage for an update on the town of Paxí on a small island in the far south of Maresa near the Andalusian sea border. I worked really hard on this relatively small town, so I hope you like it.

Although it is in prime location for a tourist mecca, Paxí has managed to retain it's small town charm through extremely restrictive zoning laws that essentially prohibit all new growth, which has kept the town true to the form of the town that have occupied these islands for as long as anyone can remember.

We start with a glimpse of Paxí pristine beaches, rarely traversed by the sandal-clad feet of tourists.



More of the beaches glistening in the warm sun.



You can only wish you lived here, most of the towns residents wouldn't sell these homes for their lives.



The town center with the mission built in 1298 to convert the citizens of these islands to Christianity. Services are no longer held inside the building, and are instead held outside in the square until the parish can gather enough funds to build a new church.



Another square and the town football pitch, where citizens enjoy their favorite pastime, other than sitting on the beach and watching the sunset of course.



A winery just outside of town, with a villa building that was built in 1566. The land has been in use for wine making for longer than any other parcel of land in Insulo.



Now here's something I've never done before, but I think it turned out quite well. Mosaic!

Beautiful!

Grand Princess Amanthis II of Grand (that's the wife of my emperor and the mother of my Emperor-Regent) would like to offer $30,000 from her personal finances to help build a new church. She would also like the old one to be transported to Grand after it's replacement to serve as part of a museum of international culture, although that is optional.

Update Eight: Introduction to San Sebastian and More

This is a short update but with something else attached at the end. We're visiting a new locale, the city of San Sebastian in Maresa. It is on the bottom left of this map:



The Villate Manor was constructed as local merchant Hugo Villate's personal palace in the year 1734, and is now a public park and bed and breakfast. The site is a extremely popular location for weddings, and provides a leafy oasis in the middle of the urban jungle.



The Playa Calmante completely surrounds the main city of San Sebastian. When the wall surrounding the city were constructed in 1971 to prevent the city from sliding down into the ocean there were many protests against the destruction of the beach. Faced with riots, the local government made an unusually friendly gesture for the time and compromised by building the walls back away from the water, preserving the beach below the walls. The beach is one of the major attractions of the city.



The old town is another major attraction, filled to the brim with street vendors and quaint boutiques, this area has become extremely trendy lately, even though it was recently on the brink of abandonment during the Federation years because people could not afford to maintain the structures.



And now I have two large mosaics, they are wider than most forums will permit so I have provided links.

Mosaic of the Old Town:

Recently Insulo bid to host the XIV Simlympiad, this is part of the reason it's been a while since I posted an update.

Scio, a suburb of Erikkson, is an intellectual center of Insulo, home to two major universities and a unique collaborative and educational environment.

San Sebastian is a center of historical culture and a site of immense natural beauty, contrasted with new ultra modern growth due to an economic boom in its tourist economy.

About Insulo
Sobre Ensuña

Insulo is a country of many faces, from the snow-capped mountains of Bascla to the sun-baked beaches of Maresa. The nation covers nearly all of the Pontusian Peninsula and a number of islands in the Alcadean Sea. Below is a map of the Republic of Insulo showing all fifteen provinces and their capitals. Erikkson, the main host city, has been national capital of Insulo since January 1st, 2011.



Insulo traces it's history as an organized state back to the year 113 BCE, when the Insola people conquered the various people of the Southern Hogara Peninsula and established the city of Insulo on a site located just outside the modern city of Nueva Valencia. The city's had a short life, shrinking from influence after a fire in 72 BCE, but the country it created went on to combine with the Puertian Federation to create the Insulonian Empire, one of the most powerful nations in the Alcadean. Current-Day Insulo traces it's beginning to the 1985 overthrow of the tyrannical Regime of the Insulonian Nationalist Party, replacing the Federation of Insulo with the Republic of Insulo. Since then the formerly repressed economy has burst into the 21st Century as the nation quickly modernized and the people looked to pave over the generic and reserved culture and architecture of the federation years. The building boom that ensued saw thousands of generic concrete blocks bulldozed to make way for the construction new glimmering ultra-modern cities. In contrast to the ultra-modern new construction, in the long neglected historic cities around the country a massive project to restore the areas to their former glory occurred. Today Insulonians take great pride in their country and it's vibrant culture, and under their beloved blue and white flag they hope to bring this enthusiasm to the world stage, and have started to show interest in hosting a number of international events, including of course this bid for the Simlympics.
