This is just some quick stuff that i've recently done, specifically while my application was pending, some of you have seen this, don't spoil it for everyone else, it's still good Razz

Also, I plan on making one of the next few projects I post to be Angelorium 2.0. It's fairly well done but I've got some issues that I never can take the pictures before I decide I don't like something or my game crashes on me... usually the first for about 5 times then the second.

Also, could i get a sub-forum like the other Observers? Thank you Smile

Cuper's Harbor

Random Park with Sandstone.

The Loop.

Town Hall

Repair Shop

Downtown Medical Center

If you've looked on my wiki pages, you'll have noticed mention of the Cuper's Harbor Grand Prix. This has long been a historic race through Cuper's Harbor, often going under the alias of the Pfiefer Cuper's Harbor Grand Prix in recent years. It winds 2.59 miles through Cuper's Harbor. Here we see Pit Exit and the first few turns.

A good shot of downtown's relativly small skyline.

Cuper's Harbor Stadium,home of the Cuper's Harbor Cardinals of the M-League.

Where I am to so far.

Tysonville, Vulputate

Well, got another chance to make a town and like I said, i'm doing rural. Tysonville is a small hamlet 10 miles North of Cuper's Harbor along VS-343 (Vulputate State Road 343) also known as Flynn Sidney Highway. Tysonville has only 1,500 people in it but it is home to round 9, the MeriAir 400, of the MSCRA Conway Auto Parts Series.

Ranch Lake, one of many lakes around these parts, it is located at the base of the hill on which Tysonville Ranch is located on.

Tysonville Secondary School, located at the south end of town.

Tysonville Ranch, est. 1832

Food and Beverage at the north end of town.

Raceway Lake, another lake near Tysonville

Cuper's Harbor Motor Speedway, a .333 (1/3 mile) oval with a pit lane on the inside and 7,500 person seating. Parking is on the hill behind the seating area.

Cooper, Cooper

Redone Cooper (keep trying to call it Kilburn (angry) ) Cooper is the smallest state capital at only about 80,000 people. It's pretty average but it's still a nice place to live. Right along the river, nice parks and rural areas near by to escape the city and everything within easy reach.

Typical Cooper neighborhood along the edge of Lake Cooper State Park.

The Quad at Cooper State University

Central Park

Lake Cooper Resort

Shot of Eagleshead Neighborhood along the River.

Kilburn Road Stadium, home of FC Cooper. Surrounding the stadium is various Big-Box Stores, the MC Cola Bottling Plant-Cooper, The Cooper Marriot, the Cooper Doubletree and Stadium Parking.

Last update I accidently mislabeled Cuper's Harbor Motor Speedway as Cooper County Speedway. This is actually Cooper County Speedway.

Some great updates there. I look forward to seeing your CBD grow up and out. Lots of potential with your city. Can't wait to see a regional picture to get a better idea of where your city in relation to your nation.

I've got alot of regions, My nation is a bit bigger than new zealand if i'm correct. I could make a fullscale map If I wanted to but I'd never get it all done and i'd never find anything because it was so big.

I don't know if these two CBD's are going to expand much but Angelorium's probably will. I've actually only got about 11,000,000 people in my national population. Probably should have gone for a higher number but oh well.

update on the Civil War from PM Harry Reymond from the "Meridiania Today Online."

Also, Volksrepubliek Stille Nederlandse has closed it's borders by armed guards.

If an admin reads this could I get this moved to my CJ section?

Daniel, 30: Thanks

Update, and let me know if you'd like an embassy too...

Well, I redid Angelorium and I've spent two months getting the finishing touches on it just like I want it so now, here I present Angelorium.

As the capital city, the Politics are the first thing to come to mind, and as such, there is a significant foreign presence in the city. We begin with the four newly built embassies... well, three, Lorenta's is going to be built soon, once I decide on what building i'm going to have it be.

The Coraille Embassy is situated on Kleeberg Road, which stretches from the Embassy corner, 5.8 miles southward to the M-1. Surrounding the building are some domestic Meridianian Spurce trees.
Kevin, the flag will go inside the roundabout instead of that flowery thing.

The Cattalian Embassy is designed in similar fashion to domestic Cattalian architecture.

Illu'a Embassy. Sorry bout the misspelling.

Hungary Jacks near the Embassies

Now for domestic politics

Prime Minister's Garden and Residence featuring the flag of the Executive.

Capital Gardens

Parliament Building featuring the Flag of the Legislative.

Now that does it for the politics.

National Stadium, home of Angelorium United of the M-League and the Capital City 300 MSCRA race.

Cardinal Stadium, home of Angels City FC and the North Town 300 MSCRA race.

National Arena, featuring the Meridianian flag on the roof.

West Town Reservoir

M-Trak Capital City Terminal.

Carne Tower, The Remote Control (Tulktronics Building), and Angels Federal Bank Tower along.

Whole shot of Downtown.

Angelorium in it's current state.

MSCRA and LNCS News:
*The Garnsey 300, scheduled for May 5, has been cancelled because of the politcal unrest in Garnsey State.
*Grote Prijs Gezag will remain on the schedule for the time being, until it is decided that it will be unsafe to proceed with the race (expect an announcement around June 15th) The race is scheduled for August 5

Your down town looks great from above.

I really like the creative parks you've laid out as well.

Only constructive criticism I could make would be to add some flora to those grass areas around your stadiums, train station and Parliament, plus more car parks in and around your CBD and stadiums.

Decent! Smile

Just a couple of suggestions:

- Use MMPs to fill that void in those grass areas. It looks bland without them, I suggest using grass and small trees together.
- Along with your CBD, use some midrise W2W (wall to wall buildings) because the transition between the city center and suburbs is a bit immediate.
- For extra realism, I recommend having slums or poor areas in your city. Not every city is crisp and clean / utopia like.

Hello and Welcome tonight, to tonight's news here on M7TV. Tonight, Prime Minister Reymond has successfully quashed the Kosteloosian Uprising in Garnsey State and troops are already leaving tonight. The fighting took only 3 days after it began. Meridianian Casualties are not known but he estimate so far is 11, Kosteloosian casualties are estimated at around 1,000 to 1,500. Most troops who have been deployed are expected to be back home early next week. Troops based in Garnsey are expected to remain in the hostile areas for the next few months. Former VSN President Eray Koorn has not been found but he is believed to be in the mountains east southeast of Gezag, as for the rest of the former VSN Government... um... oh....

Just coming in from Downtown Angelorium, A bomb has exploded on the North Road Bridge, and it is understood that Prime Minister Reymond was on the bridge at that time. Noone has come forward as having executed the attack but all reports suggest that Dutch Nationalists are to blame. Vice Prime Minister Timothy Vickers Jr. has been sworn in during a private ceremony and is now acting PM. Our Condolences here at M7TV Go out to the friends and family of Henry Reymond III.

Forgot my War update on here yesterday:

Update on the War Situation:
Today, South Juliet has succeeded under the name of the République de libre-Pacifique and there has been a reuprising in Stille Nederlandse, creating two fights for the government. The Administration of PM Vickers has announced that troop withdrawl has been cancelled and troops are expected to expand upwards of 80,000 in both areas. Martial Law has also been declared while the situation is handeled. Reconstruction of the North Road Bridge is expected to be completed shortly due to the small size of the bridge. A curfew of 9:30 has been implemented in Angelorium, Gezag, Raakstad, and South Juliet. The M-League has halted it's season, as has the Tasman League. The AGPS has temporarily cancelled the two Grand Prix's but will reinstate them if the situation improves between now and then.

Government defeated by one, is government with no legs. Have we lost our legs? No, we will have our legs, and we will use them to kick out treason within our shores. Our Legs will be powerful.
-PM Tim Vickers Jr. to Parliament on 12/1/11 during the emergency session

PM Vickers has also stated that they will not get away with this. Justice will be swift and sweet.

Also, when the ceremony takes place, both of you will be invited to the funeral Smile

Every year since 1926, the last two weeks of March have seen the Isle of Follycravie shut down nearly completely for the Kirk Motorized Races, mostly motorcycle races, taking place along a 28 kilometer/17.4 mile track atleast once a day during the two weeks. Of course the roads have long been open, but i'll provide full coverage when the races start back up on March 16th. The Isle is located 80 miles due north of Derry, Northern Ireland and 160 miles West of Edinburgh, Scotland between the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. There is no official number of turns but most observers reason around 170 turns are on the track.

The track enters Kirk at the Wilson Hill and Maximillian Curves. Before hitting the rockface, the track takes a long 90 degree turn at around 60 mph before a flat out kink and a sharp 50 mph turn. The track straightens out and drops down, including during the braking zone, leading to a difficult braking for a 40 mph corner. Two more 90 degree turns follow before hitting town.

After hitting various other turns, the track doubles back upon itself and comes into downtown. The Gas Turn is one of the most famed on the track (anyone know of any walls I can get onto the inside there?) where the track goes 90 degrees past a gas station on a blind turn before crossing the River Kirk and passing the entrance to pitlane, which directly overlooks River Kirk. Following various turns and through two roundabouts, crossing the President's Bridge (State Leaders are called Presidents in Meridiania and Meridianian dependencies), passing the pitlane's reenterance point and 100m later, the start finish line. Soon after that, the cars pass "turn one", a quick right left.

Following one 90 degree turn and a 45 right turn, the track ascends and descends along the coast in the "deadman's curves", claiming numerous lives in the long history of the races, the most recent in 2002.

A shot of the actual town. After entering in the southeast (top right) the track follows the same route until hitting the last traffic light, Statehouse Road, and coming back into town, then following the previously outline route.

Statehouse (yes I know, It's not in the previous picture... oh well)

Shot of the entire city, that's the Irish Sea to the right and the Atlantic to the bottom.
